|INTRODUCTION & FORMATTING RULES|
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay, well this is a script FAQ for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney for the
Nintendo DS, which you should already know. Let me start by saying that this
took a really long time to type. A REEEEEEEEALLY long time. I guess I just
really like this game. Actually, I don't guess. I can safely say I really like
this game.

The formatting of my script FAQ is an issue that must be addressed prior to
the viewing of it. Firstly, the text is in the format shown below.

-Name Tag
Line 1
Line 2
Line 3

I cut off the lines exactly where the game cut them off, for authenticity.

A full line of hyphens can indicate a few things.
   1. A change of scene
   2. A point where the screen fades to black
   3. In the investigation chapters, separating the part where characters talk
      amongst each other from the parts where you choose what to do (Examine,
      present, talk)

A three-sided box of stars (*) around text can serve four different purposes.
   1. At points in the game where several options are given, there will be one
      box for each option. At the end of the box it will indicate whether you
      CONTINUE or RETURN TO QUESTION.
   2. When you are asked to present something (not cross-examination), a box
      will show what will happen if you present something wrong. Below that
      box will be what happens if you present something correctly, not boxed.
   3. When you are asked to point out a spot on a photo, map, etc. the same
      thing will happen as in point 2. There will be a separate box for what
      happens if you show the wrong spot.
   4. Perhaps the most common use, during the investigation chapters, will be
      to separate text that appears from certain actions. For example, if you
      examine a signpost, the text that appears from the examination to the
      return to the menu will be inside a box labelled "Examine signpost."

New in Case 4 Chapter 3 is a mini row of hyphens. It didn't occur before this
point, but I will likely use it in the future. It'll show up when the screen
fades, but the characters don't actually go anywhere. (i.e., a flashback.) I'm
not going to go back into previous chapters and change what I've already done
there, but just know that for the chapters ahead.

The cross-examination scene (between two hyphen lines) contains several unique
features. There will be numbers above all the sections of text. Below each
section, tabbed in a few spaces, is what occurs when you press on that point.
At the end of the cross-examination, before the hyphens, there are a few lines
that are not tabbed in, which is what is said after you cycle through all of
the testimony. What is after that scene will be what happens immediately after
the cross-examination music stops. That is usually after an objection, but in
some cases it is not. In those non-objection cases, the requirements for
ending the cross-examination and continuing are at the appropriate point in
the scene.

In cases where a part of a testimony is changed, that part will be numbered #b
(Example: 8b). In the example, 8a will indicate when to change to 8b, and 8b
then follows the rules of a normal piece of testimony, with the press text
below it.

At any point in the game, in the case that a block of text is changed after
you perform a certain task, or go through another block of text, it will be
indicated rather clearly, however there is no fixed format. There is a good
chance that I missed text branches due to the way the game sometimes does
this, so any help would be appreciated.

Lastly, and least importantly because you probably could figure it out, if a
line is missing a name tag, that means there wasn't one. So without further
ado, continue reading to Case 1.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*gasp*...gasp*...

Dammit! ...Why me?

I can't get caught...
Not like this!

I-I've gotta find someone
to pin this on...

Someone like... him!

I'll make it look like
HE did it!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

August 3, 9:47 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 2

-Phoenix
(Boy am I nervous!)

-Mia
Wright!

-Phoenix
Oh, h-hiya, Chief.

-Mia
Whew,
I'm glad I made it on time.

-Mia
Well, I have to say Phoenix,
I'm impressed!

-Mia
Not everyone takes on a
murder trial right off
the bat like this.

-Mia
It says a lot about
you... and your client as well.

-Phoenix
Um... thanks.

-Phoenix
Actually, it's because
I owe him a favor.

-Mia
A favor?

-Mia
You mean, you knew the
defendant before this case?

-Phoenix
Yes.

-Phoenix
Actually, I kind of owe
my current job to him.

-Phoenix
He's one of the reasons
I became an attorney.

-Mia
Well, that's news to me!

-Phoenix
I want to help him out
any way I can!

-Phoenix
I just... really want to help
him, I owe him that much.

-???
(It's over!)

-???
(My life, everything,
it's all over!)

-Mia
...

-Mia
Isn't that your client
screaming over there?

-Phoenix
Yeah... that's him.

-???
(Death! Despair! Ohhhh!)

-???
(I'm gonna do it,
I'm gonna die!!!)

-Mia
It sounds like
he wants to die...

-Phoenix
Um, yeah. *sigh*

-Butz
Nick!!!

-Phoenix
Hey.
Hey there, Larry.

-Butz
Dude, I'm so guilty!!
Tell them I'm guilty!!!

-Butz
Gimme the death sentence!
I ain't afraid to die!

-Phoenix
What!?
What's wrong, Larry?

-Butz
Oh, it's all over...
I... I'm finished. Finished!

-Butz
I can't live in a world
without her! I can't!

-Butz
Who... who took her away
from me, Nick? Who did this!?

-Butz
Aww, Nick, ya gotta tell me!
Who took my baby away!?

-Phoenix
(Hmm... The person responsible
for your girlfriend's death?)

-Phoenix
(The newspapers say
it was you...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
My name is Phoenix Wright.

-Phoenix
Here's the story:

-Phoenix
My first case is
a fairly simple one.

-Phoenix
A young woman was killed
in her apartment.

-Phoenix
The guy they arrested was
the unlucky sap dating her:

-Phoenix
Larry Butz... my best
friend since grade school.

-Phoenix
Our school had a saying:
"When something smells,
it's usually the Butz."

-Phoenix
In the 23 years I've known
him, it's usually been true.

-Phoenix
He has a knack for getting
himself in trouble.

-Phoenix
One thing I can say though:
It's usually not his fault.
He just has terrible luck.

-Phoenix
But I know better than anyone,
that he's a good guy at heart.

-Phoenix
That and I owe him one.
Which is why I took the
case... to clear his name.

-Phoenix
And that's just what I'm
going to do!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

August 3, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 2

-Judge
The court is now in session for
the trial of Mr. Larry Butz.

-Payne
The prosecution is ready,
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
The, um, defense is ready,
Your Honor.

-Judge
Ahem.

-Judge
Mr. Wright?

-Judge
This is your first trial,
is it not?

-Phoenix
Y-Yes, Your Honor.
I'm, um, a little nervous.

-Judge
Your conduct during this
trial will decide the fate
of your client.

-Judge
Murder is a serious charge.
For your client's sake, I hope
you can control your nerves.

-Phoenix
Thank... thank you, Your Honor.

-Judge
...

-Judge
Mr. Wright, given the
circumstances...

-Judge
I think we should have a test
to ascertain your readiness.

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
(Gulp... Hands shaking...
Eyesight... fading...)

-Judge
This test will consist of a
few simple questions. Answer
them clearly and concisely.

-Judge
Please state the name of
the defendant in this case.

This is a murder trial. Tell me,

-Phoenix
(Whew, I know this one! Glad
I read the case report cover

-Phoenix
(It's... wait... Uh-oh!)

-Phoenix
(No... no way! I forgot!
I'm drawing a total blank
here!)

-Mia
Phoenix! Are you absolutely
SURE you're up to this?

-Mia
You don't even know the
victim's name!?

-Phoenix
Oh, the victim! O-Of course
I know the victim's name!

-Phoenix
I, um, just forgot.
... Temporarily.

-Mia
I think I feel a migraine
coming on.

-Mia
Look, the defendant's name

Just touch the Court Record

Remember to check it often.
Do it for me, please.

*
********************************************

***Hit with a blunt object******************
*
* -Phoenix
* She was struck once,
* by a blunt object.
*
* -Judge
* Correct.
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Judge
You've answered all my
questions. I see no reason
why we shouldn't proceed.

-Judge
You seem much more relaxed,
Mr. Wright. Good for you.

-Phoenix
Thank you, Your Honor.
(Because I don't FEEL
relaxed, that's for sure.)

-Judge
Well, then...

-Judge
First, a question for the
prosecution. Mr. Payne?

-Payne
Yes, Your Honor?

-Judge
As Mr. Wright just told us,
the victim was struck with
a blunt object.

-Judge
Would you explain to the court
just what that "object" was?

-Payne
The murder weapon was this
statue of "The Thinker."

-Payne
It was found lying on the
floor, next to the victim.

-Judge
I see... the court accepts
it into evidence.

Statue added to
the Court Record.

-Mia
Wright...

-Mia
Be sure to pay attention to
any evidence added during
the trial.

-Mia
That evidence is the only
ammunition you have in court.

-Mia
Touch the Court Record
button to check the Court
Record frequently.

-Judge
Mr. Payne, the prosecution
may call its first witness.

-Payne
The prosecution calls the
defendant, Mr. Butz, to the
stand.

-Phoenix
Um, Chief, what do I do now?

-Mia
Pay attention. You don't want
to miss any information that
might help your client's case.

-Mia
You'll get your chance to
respond to the prosecution
later, so be ready!

-Mia
Let's just hope he doesn't
say anything... unfortunate.

-Phoenix
(Uh oh, Larry gets excited
easily... this could be bad.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Payne
Ahem.

-Payne
Mr. Butz. Is it not true that
the victim had recently
dumped you?

-Butz
Hey, watch it buddy!

-Butz
We were great together!
We were Romeo and Juliet,
Cleopatra and Mark Anthony!

-Phoenix
(Um... didn't they all die?)

-Butz
I wasn't dumped! She just
wasn't taking my phone calls.
Or seeing me... Ever.

-Butz
WHAT'S IT TO YOU, ANYWAY!?

-Payne
Mr. Butz, what you describe
is generally what we mean
by "dumped."

-Payne
In fact, she had completely
abandoned you... and was
seeing other men!

-Payne
She had just returned from
overseas with one of them
the day before the murder!

-Butz
Whaddya mean, "one of them"!?

-Butz
Lies! All of it, lies!
I don't believe a word of it!

-Payne
Your Honor, the
victim's passport.

-Payne
According to this, she was
in Paris until the day before
she died.

Passport added to
the Court Record.

-Judge
Hmm... Indeed, she appears
to have returned the day
before the murder.

-Butz
Dude... no way...

-Payne
The victim was a model, but
did not have a large income.

-Payne
It appears that she had
several "Sugar Daddies."

-Butz
Daddies?
Sugar?

-Payne
Yes. Older men, who gave
her money and gifts.

-Payne
She took their money and used
it to support her lifestyle.

-Butz
Duuude!

-Payne
We can clearly see what kind
of woman this Ms. Stone was.

-Payne
Tell me, Mr. Butz, what do
you think of her now?

-Mia
Wright...

-Mia
I don't think you want
him to answer that question.

-Phoenix
(Yeah... Larry has a way of
running his mouth in all
the wrong directions.)

-Phoenix
(Should I...?)

***Wait and see what happens****************
*
* -Phoenix
* (Might be better not to
* get involved in this one...
*
* -Payne
* Well, Mr. Butz?
*
* -Butz
* Dude, no way!
* That cheatin' she-dog!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Stop him from answering******************
*
* -Phoenix
* My client had no idea the
* victim was seeing other men!
*
* -Phoenix
* That question is
* irrelevant to this case!
*
* -Payne
* Oof! *wince*
*
* -Butz
* Dude! Nick!
* Whaddya mean, "irrelevant"!?
*
* -Butz
* That cheatin' she-dog!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Butz
I'm gonna die.
I'm just gonna drop dead!

-Butz
Yeah, and when I meet her in
the afterlife...

-Butz
I'm going to get to the bottom
of this!

-Judge
Let's continue with the trial,
shall we?

-Payne
I believe the accused's
motive is clear to everyone.

-Judge
Yes, quite.

-Phoenix
(Oh boy. This is so not
looking good.)

-Payne
Next question!

-Payne
You went to the victim's
apartment on the day of
the murder, did you not?

-Butz
Gulp!

-Payne
Well, did you, or did you not?

-Butz
Heh? Heh heh. Well, maybe
I did, and maybe I didn't!

-Phoenix
(Uh oh. He went.)

-Phoenix
(What do I do?)

***Have him answer honestly*****************
*
* -Phoenix
* (I know! I'll send him
* a signal...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (TELL THE TRUTH)
*
* -Butz
* Er... Yeah! Yeah!
* I was there! I went!
*
* -Judge
* Order!
*
* -Judge
* Well, Mr. Butz?
*
* -Butz
* Dude, chill!
*
* -Butz
* She wasn't home, man...
* So, like, I didn't see her.
*
* -Payne
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Payne
* Your Honor, the defendant
* is lying.
*
* -Judge
* Lying?

* -Payne
* The prosecution would like
* to call a witness who can
* prove Mr. Butz is lying.
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Stop him from answering******************
*
* -Phoenix
* (I'll send him a signal...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (LIE LIKE A DOG)
*
* -Butz
* Um, well, see, it's like this:
* I don't remember.
*
* -Payne
* You "don't remember"?
*
* -Payne
* Well then, we'll just
* have to remind you!
*
* -Phoenix
* (I got a bad feeling
* about this...)
*
* -Payne
* We have a witness that can
* prove he DID go to the
* victim's apartment that day!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Judge
Well, that simplifies matters.
Who is your witness?

-Payne
The man who found
the victim's body.

-Payne
Just before making the
gruesome discovery...

-Payne
He saw the defendant fleeing
the scene of the crime!

-Judge
Order! Order in the court!

-Judge
Mr. Payne, the prosecution
may call its witness.

-Payne
Yes, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
(This is bad...)

-Payne
On the day of the murder, my
witness was selling newspapers
at the victim's building.

-Payne
Please bring Mr. Frank Sahwit
to the stand!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Payne
Mr. Sahwit, you sell newspaper
subscriptions, is this correct?

-Sahwit
Oh, oh yes!
Newspapers, yes!

-Judge
Mr. Sahwit, you may
proceed with your testimony.

-Judge
Please tell the court what
you saw on the day of the
murder.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Witness's Account --

(1)
-Sahwit
I was going door-to-door,
selling subscriptions when I saw
a man fleeing an apartment.

(2)
-Sahwit
I thought he must be in a
hurry because he left the
door half-open behind him.

(3)
-Sahwit
Thinking it strange, I looked
inside the apartment.

(4)
-Sahwit
Then I saw her lying there...
A woman... not moving... dead!

(5)
-Sahwit
I quailed in fright and found
myself unable to go inside.

(6)
-Sahwit
I thought to call the police
immediately!

(7)
-Sahwit
However, the phone in her
apartment wasn't working.

(8)
-Sahwit
I went to a nearby park and
found a public phone.

(9)
-Sahwit
I remember the time exactly:
It was 1:00 PM.

(10)
-Sahwit
The man who ran was, without
a doubt, the defendant sitting
right over there.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Phoenix
(Larry! Why didn't you
tell the truth?)

-Phoenix
(I can't defend you against
a testimony like that!)

-Judge
Incidentally, why wasn't
the phone in the victim's
apartment working?

-Payne
Your Honor, at the time of
the murder, there was a
blackout in the building.

-Judge
Aren't phones supposed to
work during a blackout?

-Payne
Yes, Your Honor...

-Payne
However, some cordless phones
do not function normally.

-Payne
The phone that Mr. Sahwit
used was one of those.

-Payne
Your Honor...

-Payne
I have a record of the
blackout, for your perusal.

Blackout Record added
to the Court Record.

-Judge
Now, Mr. Wright...

-Phoenix
Yes!
Er... yes, Your Honor?

-Judge
You may begin your
cross-examination.

-Phoenix
C-Cross-examination,
Your Honor?

-Mia
Alright, Wright, this is it.
The real deal!

-Phoenix
Uh... what exactly am I
supposed to do?

-Mia
Why, you expose the lies in
the testimony the witness
just gave!

-Phoenix
Lies! What?! He was lying!?

-Mia
Your client is innocent,
right?

-Mia
Then that witness must have
lied in his testimony!

-Mia
Or is your client really...
guilty?

-Phoenix
!!! How do I prove he's not?

-Mia
You hold the key!
It's in the evidence!

-Mia
Compare the witness's
testimony to the
evidence at hand.

-Mia
There's bound to be a
contradiction in there!

-Mia
First find contradictions
between the Court Record
and the witness's testimony.

-Mia
Then, once you've found the
contradicting evidence...

-Mia
present it and rub
it in the witness's face!

-Phoenix
Um... okay.

-Mia
Touch the Court Record button
and point out contradictions
in the testimony!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Witness's Account --

(1)
-Sahwit
I was going door-to-door,
selling subscriptions when I saw
a man fleeing an apartment.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Isn't a man leaving an
   apartment a common sight?

   -Phoenix
   I find it odd you would
   take notice of him...

   -Sahwit
   Er... heh.

   -Sahwit
   I don't know. He just seemed
   strange to me, that's all.

   -Sahwit
   Like he was mad, and yet
   frightened at the same time.

   -Sahwit
   Just like... a criminal fleeing
   the scene of a crime!

   -Phoenix
   The defense requests that
   the witness refrain from
   conjecture!

   -Payne
   Of course. What the witness
   means is that the man he saw
   looked suspicious.

   -Payne
   So, what happened next?

(2)
-Sahwit
I thought he must be in a
hurry because he left the
door half-open behind him.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Half-open... you say?

   -Sahwit
   Yes, yes, the door was
   open halfway. Yes.

   -Sahwit
   I watched for a moment, but
   no one came to close the door.

   -Sahwit
   "That's odd, in a big city
   like this," I thought...

   -Payne
   I see.
   And what happened next?

(3)
-Sahwit
Thinking it strange, I looked
inside the apartment.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What gave you the
   idea to do that?

   -Sahwit
   Well, the door was half-open,
   you see.

   -Sahwit
   Isn't it only human
   to want to... peek?

   -Sahwit
   We climb mountains because
   they are there!
   It's the same thing.

   -Payne
   Truer words have never
   been spoken!
   Anyone would look inside!

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm... why did Payne cut
   him off so quickly?)

   -Payne
   So you looked into the
   apartment.
   What happened then?

(4)
-Sahwit
Then I saw her lying there...
A woman... not moving... dead!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you sure she was dead?

   -Sahwit
   W-Well, no, I guess I wasn't.

   -Sahwit
   But, she wasn't moving at
   all, and there was blood
   everywhere.

   -Phoenix
   (I guess that would look
   fatal to anyone...)

   -Phoenix
   Very well, what happened next?

(5)
-Sahwit
I quailed in fright and found
myself unable to go inside.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So, you didn't touch
   ANYTHING in the apartment?

   -Sahwit
   Um, yes. I mean no! Nothing.

   -Phoenix
   Okay.
   What happened next?

(6)
-Sahwit
I thought to call the police
immediately!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   You "thought" to call the
   police? Does that mean you
   didn't actually call them!?

   -Payne
   Please, please... Listen to
   the rest of the testimony.

   -Payne
   You thought to call the
   police... What happened next?

(7)
-Sahwit
However, the phone in her
apartment wasn't working.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   The phone in her apartment
   wasn't working?

   -Sahwit
   Yes. I mean, no,
   no it wasn't. Right.

   -Phoenix
   But you said you didn't
   go into the apartment...
   or did you!?

   -Sahwit
   Oh, oh, that? I can explain
   that!

   -Sahwit
   There was a cordless phone
   on a shelf in the entranceway.

   -Sahwit
   I reached inside and tried
   using that to call...

   -Payne
   And the phone wasn't
   working, correct?

   -Payne
   What happened next?

(8)
-Sahwit
I went to a nearby park and
found a public phone.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why use a public phone?

   -Sahwit
   Well, you see, I don't
   have a cell phone.

   -Sahwit
   And, being the middle of the
   afternoon, there was no answer
   at the nearby apartments.

   -Phoenix
   Ah, right... what time
   did you call again?

(9)
-Sahwit
I remember the time exactly:
It was 1:00 PM.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   1:00 PM!
   Are you certain?

   -Sahwit
   Yes.
   Absolutely.

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm... He seems really
   confident.)

   -Mia
   1:00 PM?

   -Mia
   Wright. Doesn't that
   seem strange to you?

   -Mia
   Present some evidence
   to contradict him!

(10)
-Sahwit
The man who ran was, without
a doubt, the defendant sitting
right over there.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you absolutely,
   100% positive?

   -Sahwit
   Yes, it was him.
   No mistake about it.

   -Payne
   The witness says he's certain!

-Mia
That's all of it.

-Mia
There must be a contradiction
in there somewhere.

-Mia
Examine the Court Record button
if something strikes you as
being suspicious.

-Mia
Then, find the evidence that
contradicts his testimony,
and present it to him!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
You found the body at 1:00 PM.
You're sure?

-Sahwit
Yes.
It was 1:00 PM, for certain.

-Phoenix
Frankly, I find that
hard to believe!

-Phoenix
Your statement directly
contradicts the autopsy report.

-Phoenix
The autopsy notes the time
of death at sometime after
4PM.

-Phoenix
There was nobody to... er...
no "body" to find at 1:00 PM!

-Phoenix
How do you explain this
three-hour gap?

-Sahwit
!!!

-Sahwit
Oh, that! Oh, er...

-Payne
*OBJECTION!*

-Payne
This is trivial! The witness
merely forgot the time!

-Judge
After his testimony, I find
that hard to believe.

-Judge
Mr. Sahwit...

-Judge
Why were you so certain
that you found the body
at 1:00 PM?

-Sahwit
I.. er... well, I...
Gee, that's a really good
question!

-Mia
Great job, Wright!
Way to put him on the spot!

-Mia
That's all you have to do:
point out contradictions!

-Mia
Lies always beget more lies!

-Mia
See through one, and their
whole story falls apart!

-Sahwit
Wait!
I remember now!

-Judge
Would you care to give
your testimony again?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Time of Discovery --

(1)
-Sahwit
You see, when I found the
body, I heard the time.

(2)
-Sahwit
There was a voice saying the
time... It was probably
coming from the television.

(3)
-Sahwit
Oh, but it was three hours
off, wasn't it?

(4)
-Sahwit
I guess the victim must
have been watching a video
of a taped program!

(5)
-Sahwit
That's why I thought
it was 1:00 PM!

(6)
-Sahwit
Terribly sorry about
the misunderstanding...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm... I see.
You heard a voice saying
the time on a taped program.

-Judge
Mr. Wright, you may cross-
examine the witness.

-Mia
Wright!

-Mia
You know what to do!

-Phoenix
I've got this one.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Time of Discovery --

(1)
-Sahwit
You see, when I found the
body, I heard the time.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   You said "heard"...
   Not "saw"?

   -Sahwit
   Yes, heard.

   -Sahwit
   All I saw was the body
   lying there...

   -Sahwit
   I didn't think to look at
   anything else, least of all
   my watch.

   -Phoenix
   Hmm...
   Isn't that a little strange?

   -Phoenix
   So you're saying you
   "heard" something.

   -Phoenix
   But if you were so shocked by
   the body, you wouldn't hear
   anything at all!

   -Payne
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Payne
   The witness did say he
   actually heard the time.

   -Payne
   It's ludicrous to suggest
   he "wouldn't hear anything"!

   -Judge
   Hmm...
   I have to agree with
   the prosecution.

   -Judge
   Witness, continue
   your testimony.

(2)
-Sahwit
There was a voice saying the
time... It was probably
coming from the television.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you sure it was a
   television and not... a radio?

   -Sahwit
   Well, no, I guess it
   might have been a radio.

   -Payne
   Incidentally, there was
   no radio on the premises.

   -Payne
   There was only one
   large television.

   -Mia
   Wright!

   -Mia
   I can't put my finger on it,
   but something about this seems
   fishy.

   -Mia
   Something about "hearing"
   the television...

   -Payne
   The witness has testified.
   He heard the time.

(3)
-Sahwit
Oh, but it was three hours
off, wasn't it?

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   How do you explain the gap!

   -Judge
   Well, witness?
   Can you explain this?

(4)
-Sahwit
I guess the victim must
have been watching a video
of a taped program!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   A.. video?

   -Sahwit
   Yes, that would explain
   why the time was wrong!

   -Phoenix
   True, true...

   -Mia
   Wright!

   -Mia
   I think the problem lies
   someplace else...

   -Judge
   We're agreed that you heard
   the time at the scene, then.

(5)
-Sahwit
That's why I thought
it was 1:00 PM!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you sure the voice you
   heard said it was 1:00 PM?

   -Sahwit
   Yes, I can practically hear
   it now. It was quite clear.

   -Judge
   Mr. Payne, has the prosecution
   verified this testimony?

   -Payne
   My apologies, Your Honor.

   -Payne
   I, too, have only just learned
   that the witness "heard"
   the time.

   -Sahwit
   Oh, I'm really sorry. I only
   remembered it just now.

(6)
-Sahwit
Terribly sorry about
the misunderstanding...

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Well, you just watch it!

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm... Not much point
   pressing him on that one,
   was there?)

-Mia
Notice anything suspicious?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Hold it right there!

-Phoenix
The prosecution has said there
was a blackout at the time of
the discovery!

-Phoenix
And this record proves it!

-Sahwit
...!

-Phoenix
You couldn't have heard
a television... or a video!

-Sahwit
Gah!!!

-Sahwit
I... well... urk!

-Judge
The defense has a point.

-Judge
Do you have an explanation
for this, Mr. Sahwit?

-Sahwit
No, I... I find it quite
puzzling myself! Quite!

-Sahwit
...

-Sahwit
Aah!

-Sahwit
W-wait!
I remember now!

-Judge
Mr. Sahwit?

-Judge
The court would prefer to hear
an accurate testimony from the
very beginning.

-Judge
These constant corrections
are harming your credibility.

-Judge
That, and you seem
rather... distraught.

-Sahwit
...!

-Sahwit
M-my apologies, Your Honor!

-Sahwit
It... er, it must have
been the shock of finding
the body!

-Judge
Very well, Mr. Sahwit.

-Judge
Let's hear your testimony
once more please.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Hearing the Time --

(1)
-Sahwit
Actually, I didn't "hear"
the time... I "saw" it!

(2)
-Sahwit
There was a table clock in
the apartment, wasn't there!

(3)
-Sahwit
Yeah, the murder weapon!
The killer used it to
hit the victim!

(4)
-Sahwit
That must have
been what I saw.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
You saw a clock?
I guess that would explain it.

-Judge
The defense may cross-
examine the witness.

-Phoenix
Gladly.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Hearing the Time --

(1)
-Sahwit
Actually, I didn't "hear"
the time... I "saw" it!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   That strikes me as a very
   suspicious mistake.

   -Sahwit
   Yes, I can see how you'd
   be a little doubtful...

   -Sahwit
   I'm really sorry. I only
   just remembered that
   table clock!

   -Judge
   A "table clock"?

(2)
-Sahwit
There was a table clock in
the apartment, wasn't there!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   A "table clock"?
   Was there a clock
   at the scene?

   -Judge
   This is the first
   I've heard of it!

(3)
-Sahwit
Yeah, the murder weapon!
The killer used it to
hit the victim!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   The... murder weapon?

   -Sahwit
   Yes, the table clock that
   was used as a weapon!

   -Sahwit
   That's what I just said. Did
   you doze off in the middle
   of my testimony or something?

   -Phoenix
   (Something's fishy here...)

(4)
-Sahwit
That must have
been what I saw.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why didn't you tell us
   that in the first place?

   -Sahwit
   I guess it just
   slipped my mind!

   -Sahwit
   I'm not really sure how it
   happened myself...

   -Payne
   The witness says he saw the
   table clock. End of story.

-Mia
Now, find the contradiction!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Wait just a moment!

-Phoenix
The murder weapon wasn't
a clock.
It was this statue!

-Phoenix
Now how is this supposed
to be a clock?

-Sahwit
Whaa!?

-Sahwit
Y-you with your "objections,"
and your "evidence"... Just
who do you think you are!?

-Phoenix
Just answer the question,
Mr. Sahwit.

-Sahwit
Hey, I... I saw it there, okay!
That's a clock!

-Payne
Your Honor!
If I may...

-Judge
Yes, Mr. Payne?

-Payne
As the witness stated, this
statue is indeed a clock.

-Payne
The neck is a switch. You just
tilt it, and it says the time
out loud.

-Payne
As it doesn't look like a
clock, I submitted it as a
statue. My apologies.

-Judge
I see.

-Judge
So the murder weapon was a
table clock after all.

-Judge
Well, Mr. Wright?

-Judge
It appears that the witness's
testimony was correct.
This is a clock.

-Judge
Do you have any problems
with his testimony now?

***No***************************************
*
* -Phoenix
* I guess not.
*
* -Phoenix
* There was a clock on the
* scene, so, no problem.
*
* -Mia
* Wright! Are you out
* of your mind!?
*
* -Mia
* That clock doesn't look
* like a clock at all!
*
* -Mia
* The witness couldn't have
* possibly known it was a clock
* just by seeing it!
*
* -Mia
* He said himself, he never
* entered the apartment!
*
* -Mia
* It was in his testimony!
*
* -Phoenix
* Hey!
* You're right!
*
* -Judge
* Is something the matter?
* Does the defense have anything
* to add?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yes...
* Yes I do!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Yes**************************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Your Honor, there is
* a gaping hole in the
* witness's testimony!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
The only way he could have
known the weapon was a clock
is to hold it in his hand.

-Phoenix
Yet the witness testified
that he never entered the
apartment!

-Phoenix
Clearly, a contradiction!

-Judge
Hmm... indeed!

-Phoenix
The witness knew it was
a clock, because he...

***Knew the victim**************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Tell me, isn't it true that
* you knew the victim?
*
* -Phoenix
* In fact, you were one of her
* "sugar daddies"! Be frank
* with us, Mr. Sahwit!
*
* -Sahwit
* Hmph.
*
* -Sahwit
* "Frank"? I'm always "Frank"!
*
* -Payne
* Your Honor.
*
* -Payne
* We have complete records of
* the victim's relationships.
*
* -Payne
* Mr. Frank Sahwit does
* not appear anywhere.
*
* -Phoenix
* Huh?
* Oh, really?
*
* -Judge
* Please, Mr. Wright...
* Is "Huh" the best response
* you can muster up?
*
* -Judge
* Try to refrain from making
* off-the-cuff accusations
* in the future.
*
* -Phoenix
* Y-yes, Your Honor.
* Let me think this over.
*
* RETURN TO QUESTION
*
********************************************

***Went into the apartment******************
*
* -Phoenix
* You're lying!
*
* -Phoenix
* You were inside the apartment
* on the day of the murder!
*
* -Sahwit
* Oh yeah? Prove it!
* Prove I went in there!
*
* -Phoenix
* I'll do better than that!
* I can prove you were the one
* who killed her!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
You struck her with the clock,
and the shock of the blow
triggered the clock's voice!

-Phoenix
That was the sound you heard!

-Judge
Order in the court!

-Judge
Intriguing.
Please continue, Mr. Wright.

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
Mr. Sahwit.

-Phoenix
The sound must have left
quite an impression on you.

-Phoenix
Understandable, since the
murder weapon spoke just as
you hit the victim!

-Phoenix
That voice was burned
into your mind.

-Phoenix
That's why you were so
certain about the time!

-Payne
*OBJECTION!*

-Payne
W-w-what's the meaning
of this?

-Payne
This is all baseless
conjecture!

-Phoenix
Baseless...?

-Phoenix
Just look at the
witness's face!

-Sahwit
Ngh... grrrah!

-Judge
Would the witness
care to elaborate?

-Judge
Did you strike the
victim with the clock?

-Sahwit
I... I...!
That... that day...
I... I never!

-Sahwit
Look... I... the clock...
I heard, no!
I mean, I saw...Saw... nggg!

-Sahwit
Gwaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

-Sahwit
Shutupshutupshutup!
I hate you!

-Sahwit
I-it was him, I tell you!
I saw him!

-Sahwit
H-he killed her and he
should burn! Burn!
Give him death!

-Judge
Order!
Order in the court I say!

-Payne
Your Honor,
a-a moment please!

-Payne
There isn't a shred of
evidence supporting the
defense's claims!

-Judge
Mr. Wright!

-Phoenix
Your Honor?

-Judge
You claim the sound the
witness heard came from
the clock...

-Judge
Do you have any evidence?

-Phoenix
(The whole case is riding
on this! I'd better think
it through carefully!)

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
The sound Mr. Sahwit heard
was definitely this clock.

-Phoenix
A fact which is clear
if you simply...

***Examine the clock's batteries************
*
* -Phoenix
* All you have to do
* is examine the batteries!
*
* -Judge
* Indeed? The batteries are...
* in the right way. The clock
* seems to be working fine.
*
* -Judge
* What exactly did
* you mean, Mr. Wright?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yes, the clock was
* working fine!
*
* -Payne
* Yes, and...?
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* Umm, I'm sorry, I think
* I got confused back there
* with all those testimonies.
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright!
*
* -Judge
* I expect more from a lawyer
* in this court. Even if it
* is your first day.
*
* -Judge
* I'm afraid I have to
* penalize you! Try to think

*
* -Phoenix
* Y-yes, Your Honor.
* As I was saying...
*
* BACK TO QUESTION
*
********************************************

***Ask the neighbors************************
*
* -Phoenix
* All you have to do is talk
* to the victim's neighbors!
*
* -Judge
* Talk to the neighbors...?
*
* -Phoenix
* I'm sure one of them heard
* the clock tell the time when
* the incident occurred!
*
* -Judge
* I see...
*
* -Judge
* Does the prosecution have
* anything to say, Mr. Payne?
*
* -Payne
* We have already made all
* the necessary inquiries.
*
* -Payne
* Everyone living near the
* victim's apartment was out
* at the time of the murder.
*
* -Payne
* Furthermore, even if a

*
* -Payne
* that would not prove that

*
* -Judge
* Hmm...
* That is true.

***Try sounding the clock*******************

* Let's sound the clock

*
* -Phoenix
* Your Honor, may I

*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
I ask the court to
listen very carefully...

-Alarm clock
...*beep*...

-Alarm clock
[I think it's 8:25.]

-Judge
That certainly is a strange
way to announce the time.

-Phoenix
Well, he is "The Thinker,"
after all.

-Judge
So, we've heard the clock.
What are your conclusions,
Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Mr. Payne... can you tell me
what time it is now?

-Payne
It's 11:25...

-Payne
Ack!

-Phoenix
As you can see, this clock
is exactly three hours slow!

-Phoenix
Precisely the discrepancy
between what Mr. Sahwit heard
and the actual time of death!

-Phoenix
So, Mr. Sahwit...

-Phoenix
Try to talk your
way out of this one!

-Sahwit
...

-Sahwit
...Hah! Hah hah!

-Sahwit
You forgot one thing!

-Phoenix
(Uh oh... what's he
talking about...?)

-Sahwit
While it may seem like
that clock IS running three
hours slow...

-Sahwit
It proves nothing!

-Sahwit
How do you know it was
running three days slow
on the day of the murder!?

-Sahwit
If you can't prove that,
you don't have a case!

-Phoenix
...!

-Phoenix
(He's right! How am I
going to prove that!?)

-Phoenix
(Dammit! I was so close!)

-Judge
Mr. Wright?

-Judge
It seems you lack the
critical evidence to
support your claim.

-Phoenix
...!

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-Judge
This means I cannot let
you indict the witness.

-Judge
Unfortunately...

-Judge
This ends the cross-examination
of Mr. Frank Sahwit.

-Sahwit
I come all the way down here
to testify, and look
what happens!

-Sahwit
They treat me like a
criminal! A criminal!

-Sahwit
You lawyers are all slime!

-Phoenix
(Grr! I almost had him!)

-Phoenix
(Sorry, Larry... I failed you.)

-Phoenix
(There's nothing I can
do about it now...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Mia
Not so fast, Mr. Sahwit!

-Phoenix
Mia! I mean, Chief!

-Mia
Listen up, Wright!

-Mia
Don't throw this one away,
not like this! Think!

-Phoenix
But, Chief, it's over.

-Phoenix
I can't prove the clock was
slow the day of the murder!

-Phoenix
Nobody can prove that!

-Mia
Um... well, yes.

-Mia
But that doesn't mean you
can't still win! Try thinking
out of the box!

-Mia
Don't waste time doubting the
facts. Assume the clock was
three hours slow and...

-Mia
Think through it!

-Mia
Ask yourself, "Why was
the clock three hours slow"?

-Mia
Figure out the reason,
and you'll have your proof!

-Mia
Right, Wright?

-Mia
Can you think of a reason as
to why the clock would be
three hours slow?

***No***************************************
*
* -Phoenix
* H-how am I supposed
* to know that!?
*
* -Mia
* I know you can
* figure it out!
*
* -Mia
* There must be some evidence
* in the Court Record...
*
* -Mia
* Something that can show
* why that clock was three
* hours slow!

* -Mia
* Find it, and he won't have a

* Y-y-yes, Your Honor!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Yes**************************************
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* Wait!
*
* -Phoenix
* Maybe I can prove it!
*
* -Mia
* You must have evidence
* somewhere that can
* prove it, Wright!
*
* -Mia
* Find it and let them have it!
*
* -Judge
* Well, Mr. Wright?
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Judge
You say the clock was already
running slow on the day of
the murder...

-Judge
Have you found evidence
to support this claim?

-Phoenix
Of course.

-Phoenix
There is a piece of evidence
in the Court Record that can
prove my claim beyond a doubt!

-Sahwit
Hah! Tough words! Let's see
you pull this one off!

-Judge
Let's see this evidence that
proves why the clock was
running slow!

***Present something wrong******************
*
* -Phoenix
* *TAKE THAT!*
*
* -Judge
* Um, excuse me. This proves
* your claim... how?
*
* -Judge
* I can't see what that evidence
* has to do with the clock.
*
* -Phoenix
* (D'oh! That wasn't it!)
*
* -Phoenix
* One more chance...
* Give me just one more chance!
*
* -Judge
* Alright, Mr. Wright, but
* time is not on your side.
*
* -Judge
* Be quick about it.
*
* BACK TO COURT RECORD
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
The victim had just returned
home from abroad the day
before the murder.

-Phoenix
As we all know, the time
difference between here and
Paris is nine hours!

-Phoenix
When it's 4:00 PM here,
it's 1:00 AM the next day
there.

-Phoenix
The clock wasn't three hours
slow, it was nine hours fast!

-Phoenix
The victim hadn't reset her
clock since returning home!

-Phoenix
That's why the time you heard
when you struck her dead in
her apartment was wrong!

-Phoenix
Proof enough for you,
Mr. Sahwit? Or should
I say... Mr. Did It!

-Sahwit
Ngh! ...!

-Judge
O-order! Order, I say!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Well...

-Judge
This case has certainly
turned out differently
than we all expected.

-Judge
Mr. Payne... your client?

-Payne
He... er... he was arrested
and has been taken away,
Your Honor.

-Judge
Very well.

-Judge
Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-Judge
I have to say, I'm impressed.

-Judge
I don't think I've ever seen
someone complete a defense
so quickly...

-Judge
and find the true culprit
at the same time!

-Phoenix
Thank you, Your Honor.

-Judge
At this point, this is
only a formality, but...

-Judge
This court finds the
defendant, Mr. Larry Butz...

* N O T   G U I L T Y *

-Judge
And with that...
The court is adjourned.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
It turns out that Frank
Sahwit was a common burglar!

-Phoenix
He posed as a newspaper sales-
man to check and see when
people were out of the house!

-Phoenix
That day...

-Phoenix
When Larry went to her
apartment, the victim
wasn't home.

-Phoenix
After he left, Mr. Sahwit
let himself in to do his
dirty work!

-Phoenix
While he was searching her
place, the victim returned!

-Phoenix
Flustered, Mr. Sahwit grabbed
the nearest blunt object he
could find...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

August 3, 2:32 PM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 2

-Phoenix
(Whew... I still can't
believe we won!)

-Mia
Wright!
Good job in there!

-Mia
Congratulations!

-Phoenix
Th-thanks, Chief.
I owe it all to you.

-Mia
Not at all, not at all!
You fought your own battles
in there.

-Mia
It's been a while since I've
seen a trial end on such a
satisfying note!

-Phoenix
(I've never seen the chief
looking this happy...)

-Phoenix
(If she's this glad, imagine
how Larry must feel!)

-Butz
My life is over...

-Phoenix
Larry! You're supposed to
be happy! What's wrong now!?

-Butz
Aww, Nick...

-Butz
Don't worry 'bout me!
I'll be dead and gone soon!

-Phoenix
Good! Wait, no! I mean...
Bad! Bad bad bad!

-Phoenix
Larry, you're innocent!
The case is closed.

-Butz
...

-Butz
But... but my Cindy-windy's
gone, man! Gone forever!

-Phoenix
(Larry, she was a...
Nah... Never mind.)

-Mia
Congratulations, Harry!

-Butz
H-Harry...?

-Mia
Yes, you! I can practically
see the headlines now:
"Harry Butz, Innocent!"

-Butz
Heh... um... thanks!
I really owe you one.

-Butz
I won't forget this, ever!
Let's celebrate! Dinner?
Movie? My treat!

-Mia
Oh, no, I couldn't.

-Phoenix
(Hey, I was the one who
got you off the hook!)

-Butz
Oh, hey!

-Butz
H-here, take this!
It's a present!

-Mia
A present? For me?

-Mia
Wait...
Wasn't this the evidence
that...

-Butz
Actually, I made this
clock for her!

-Butz
I made one for her
and one for me.

-Mia
R-really? You? You made this?

-Mia
...

-Mia
Well, thank you.
I'll keep it as a memento.

-Butz
Yo, Nick...

-Butz
Can you believe it?
I was so into that chick...

-Butz
And... and she was just
playing me for a fool!

-Butz
Don't that make you
wanna just cry? *sob*

-Phoenix
Larry...

-Mia
...

-Mia
Are you so sure?

-Butz
Ex-squeeze me?

-Mia
I think she thought quite a
lot of you, in her own way.

-Butz
Nah, you don't gotta
sympathize with me, 'sokay.

-Mia
Oh, I'm not just
sympathizing, really.

-Mia
Isn't that right, Wright?
Don't you have something
to show your friend?

-Mia
Something that proves how
she felt about him?

-Phoenix
H-huh?
Oh, yeah, right!

-Phoenix
(What the heck is
she talking about?)

***Present something wrong******************
*
* -Phoenix
* *TAKE THAT!*
*
* -Phoenix
* Here you go, Larry.
* Proof.
*
* -Butz
* ...
*
* -Butz
* Eh... heh heh?
* It's okay, Nick.
* Don't worry about me.
*
* -Butz
* I'll forget about
* her soon enough.
*
* -Butz
* Look, I'm gonna head
* home. Thanks a ton, eh?
*
* -Phoenix
* (Guess that wasn't the
* right thing to show him...)
*
* SKIP TO NEXT SCENE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
Check this out, Larry.
Proof Positive you weren't
just some chump to her.

-Butz
Huh...?
Where'd you get that clock?

-Phoenix
This is the clock you
made for her, Larry!

-Phoenix
She took it with her
when she traveled.

-Butz
Hmm, she probably just
needed a clock, that's all.

-Phoenix
You think so? It's a pretty
heavy clock to take traveling.

-Butz
...

-Phoenix
Well, make of it
what you will.

-Butz
...

-Butz
Hey, Nick.

-Butz
I'm glad I asked you
to be my lawyer.

-Butz
Really, I am.
Thanks.

-Phoenix
(Hope that made him feel
a little better...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Mia
Wright?

-Mia
I hope you see the importance
of evidence now.

-Mia
Also, hopefully you realize,
things change depending on
how you look at them.

-Mia
People, too.

-Mia
We never really know if
our clients are guilty
or innocent.

-Mia
All we can do is
believe in them.

-Mia
And in order to believe in
them, you have to believe
in yourself.

-Mia
Wright...

-Mia
Listen. Learn. Grow strong.

-Mia
Never let go of what
you believe in. Never.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Mia
Well, I think our work here
is done! Shall we be off?

-Phoenix
Yeah, I guess so!

-Mia
Say, how about dinner.
On me?

-Mia
We'll drink a toast
to innocent Butz!

-Phoenix
Yeah!

-Mia
Oh, speaking of Harry...

-Mia
You were saying part of why
you became a lawyer was
because of him.

-Phoenix
Er, yeah. Part, at least.

-Mia
You'll have to tell me
more about it sometime!
Maybe... over drinks?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
And so, my first
trial came to a close.

-Phoenix
Larry slapped me on the back
and said, "Gee, Nick, it's good
to have friends!"

-Phoenix
But I'm pretty sure he's not
going to pay me. Unless you
count the clock he gave Mia.

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
I didn't know it then...

-Phoenix
but that clock was soon
going to be at the center
of another incident.

-Phoenix
And my promise to tell the
chief about me and Larry...

-Phoenix
would be one promise that
I wouldn't be able to keep.

*beep*

-???
Hello? This is Maya.

-Mia
Hey Maya, it's me.

-???
Mia!
What's up? You haven't
called in a while.

-Mia
Sorry, I've been so busy.
How you been?

-???
Well, LONELY.
And it's all YOUR fault.

-???
Nah, I'm just teasing.

-???
I've been great! I'm finally
getting used to having my
own place.

-Mia
That's good to hear.

-Mia
Actually, I'm calling because
I have a favor to ask.

-???
I know, I know. You want me
to hold evidence for you?

-Mia
Sharp as always!

-Mia
There's a lot of buzz about
the upcoming trial...

-Mia
I just don't feel safe
keeping the evidence here.

-???
I gotcha.
So, what is it this time?

-Mia
It's... a clock.

-???
A clock?

-Mia
Yeah, it's made to look like
that statue, "The Thinker."
And it tells you the time!

-Mia
I thought you might like it.
You always liked toys.

-???
Hey! I'm not a little
girl anymore, Sis!

-Mia
Now, now. You know
I'm only teasing.

-Mia
Ah, I should probably tell
you, the clock isn't talking
right now.

-???
Huh? It's not working?
That's lame!

-Mia
I had to take the
clockwork out. Sorry.

-Mia
I put some papers
inside it instead.

-???
Papers? Is that
the evidence, then?

-???
Hmm, well... there's a
possibility that it might
turn out that way, yes.

-Mia
Can you come by the office
tonight, say 9:00, to pick
it up?

-Mia
I'll be in a pretrial
meeting until then.

-???
Okay, Sis, but I expect
dinner! Something good!

-???
Like... burgers! I could
really go for a good burger.

-Mia
Okay, okay.
We'll hit the usual joint.

-???
Alright! It's a deal!

-???
Okay, Sis, see you soon!

-Mia
Yep.
I'll be waiting, Maya.

Fey & Co. Law Offices

-???
Now, Miss Fey, I'll take
what's mine... the papers.

-Mia
I'm sorry, but I can't
give you what I don't have.

-???
Miss Fey,
you are a poor liar.

-???
Why, I see it right
over there...

-???
That must be "The Thinker"
that swallowed those papers.

-Mia
How could you know...?

-???
Ho hoh. You are not
cogniferous of my
background?

-???
Gathering information is
my business, you see.

-Mia
I... I should have been more
careful.

-???
Ho hoh.

-???
My dear Miss Fey...
I am so very sorry.

-???
But I am afraid I must ask
you for one more thing.

-???
Your eternal silence...
Farewell, Miss Fey.

September 5, 9:08 PM
Fey & Co. Law Offices

-Phoenix
Uh oh, I'm late.

-Phoenix
Huh, that's strange.
The chief must have
gone home already.

-Phoenix
She said her sister was
coming over so we should
all go out for dinner...

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
What's that smell...?

-Phoenix
Blood...?

-Phoenix
Mia!
(Maybe she's in her office!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Examine Anything*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* I smell blood...
* and that can't be good!

Sis...

-Phoenix
(Someone's there!)

-Phoenix
...!

-Phoenix
Chief? Chief...?

-Phoenix
Chief!!!

-Phoenix
Who are you?

-???
...

-Phoenix
(The strange girl dropped out
cold. I left her lying on
the office sofa.)

-Phoenix
(I went back to the chief
where she lay under the
window.)

-Phoenix
(Her body was still warm...)

-Phoenix
(I could feel it when 
held her shoulder.)

-Phoenix
(Then, all too quickly,
it began to fade...)

-Phoenix
(Until finally she was cold.)

-Phoenix
Chief...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Examine window***************************
*
* -Phoenix
* There's a large building
* right across from the office.
*
* -Phoenix
* The "Gatewater Hotel."
* A nice, luxurious place.
*
********************************************

***Examine the thinker**********************
*
* -Phoenix
* It's encrusted with

* How ironic that this became

*
********************************************

***Examine shards of glass******************

***Examine Mia******************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Chief...
*
* -Phoenix
* It's hard seeing her like
* this, but if there are any
* clues here...
*
* -Phoenix
* She was struck on the head
* with a blunt object.
*
* -Phoenix
* She probably died instantly.
*
* -Phoenix
* "The Thinker" lying next
* to her must have been
* the murder weapon.
*
* The Thinker added
* to the Court Record.
*
* -Phoenix
* Hmm... there are some glass
* shards near the chief's body.
*
* -Phoenix
* Must be pieces of the glass
* light stand lying broken in
* the back of the room.
*
* Glass Shards added
* to the Court Record.
*
* -Phoenix
* Nothing else that seems
* like a clue here...
*
* -Phoenix
* Hmm...?
*
* -Phoenix
* A piece of paper! It must
* have fallen from Mia's hand!
*
* -Phoenix
* What could it be?
*
********************************************

***Examine Mia again************************
*
* -Phoenix
* It's painful to look... but
* I have to, for Mia's sake.
*
* -Phoenix
* Looks like she was hit
* in the head with a blunt
* weapon.
*
* -Phoenix
* She probably died
* instantly.
*
********************************************

***Examine paper before meeting Maya********
*
* -Phoenix
* !
*
* -Phoenix
* A word is written in blood
* on this scrap of paper!
*
* -Phoenix
* "Maya"...?
* Did Mia write this?
*
* -Phoenix
* This piece of paper is a
* receipt from a department
* store, dated yesterday.
*
* Receipt added to
* the Court Record.
*
* -Phoenix
* (I think that's enough

* -Phoenix
* It's a small office, but
* it makes a good bit of money.
*
********************************************

***Examine desk*****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* A perfectly normal office
* desk.
*
* -Phoenix
* The chief had a very
* particular policy about
* office décor:
*
* -Phoenix
* "Spend big on stuff the
* clients use, but keep your
* own stuff simple."
*
********************************************

***Examine computer*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Surprisingly, the chief
* was never good with machines.
*
* -Phoenix
* About all she used this
* PC for was e-mail.
*
* -Phoenix
* She picked up this ancient
* model at some garage sale
* for practically nothing.
*
********************************************

***Examine right bookcase*******************
*
* -Phoenix
* All the chief's important

***Examine telephone************************

* -Phoenix
* That's funny...

*
* -???
* Police!?

* -???
* Please, come quick!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Wh-what was that!?)
*

(That girl just now...
where'd she go!?)

-Phoenix
(I put her right there

Yipes!

Umm...

Excuse me but, who are you?

("Maya"...?)

-Phoenix
(So Mia was writing
this girl's name!)

-Phoenix
(Maybe I should show
her the receipt?)

* Sister. I'm her

* And you were here... visiting?

* Yes. She said she wanted me

* Evidence...?

* -Maya
* Yes...
* I-it was that clock...

* weapon...)
*
********************************************

***Present Glass Shards*********************
*
* -Phoenix
* This was lying next
* to the chief.
*
* -Maya
* I know. I saw it there too.
*
* -Maya
* I thought they might be
* pieces of the light stand.
*
* -Phoenix
* Hmm. Maybe.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Never heard of a glass
* light stand before...)
*
********************************************

***Present Receipt**************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Before Mia died, she wrote
* a message with her own blood.
*
* -Phoenix
* She wrote it on the
* back of this receipt.
*
* -Maya
* !
*
* -Maya
* Th-th-that's MY name!
*
* -Maya
* W-why!?
* Why would she write my name?
*
* -Phoenix
* Please, just calm down.
*
* -Maya
* W-why would
* Sis write my name?
*
* -Phoenix
* (Uh-oh. Now I've done it...)
* 
* CONTINUE IF TELEPHONE NOT EXAMINED
*
* -Phoenix
* (I'd better hurry up
* and call the police!)
*
********************************************

***Examine door*****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* The door to the chief's
* office. It's slightly open.
*
* -Phoenix
* I'd better not touch
* the door knob.
*
********************************************

***Examine bookshelf************************
*
* -Phoenix
* You couldn't cram more legal
* books in here, even if you
* wanted to.
*
* -Phoenix
* Few can gaze upon the shelves
* without feeling insignificant.
*
********************************************

***Examine writing desk*********************
*
* -Phoenix
* A small writing desk cluttered
* with office supplies.
*
********************************************

***Examine reception desk*******************
*
* -Phoenix
* The reception desk.
* I usually sit here.
*
********************************************

***Examine painting*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* A large painting.
* I guess you'd call
* this "modern art."
*
* -Phoenix
* I, on the other hand,
* call it a mistake.
*
********************************************

***Examine sofa*****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* This sofa is for clients.

Freeze! Police!

-Gumshoe
Alright, I'm Detective
Dick Gumshoe, see?

-Phoenix
(Gumshoe...?
What an odd name.)

-Gumshoe
We received a report from the

Anyway, I don't want either
of you moving one inch, 'kay?

-Phoenix
(Great. Just great.)

-Phoenix
(Maya... Wait, she
wouldn't have... nah.)

-Gumshoe
Whoaaaaaaaaaaaah!

-Gumshoe
Scuze me!

-Maya
Eek!

-Gumshoe
This word "Maya" here
mean anything to you?

-Maya
...!

-Maya
Um... that...

-Maya
That's my name...

-Gumshoe
WHAAAAT!?

-Gumshoe
The victim drew this here
note in her own blood, see?

-Gumshoe
With her dying breath, she
wrote down the killer's name!

-Maya
K-killer...? I'm not--

-Gumshoe
Case closed! You're coming
down to the precinct, ma'am.

-Maya
W-what?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
Mia's younger sister, Maya,
was arrested on the spot.

-Phoenix
I was taken in for questioning
and didn't get out until the
next morning.

-Phoenix
My eyes were heavy...
but I couldn't sleep.

-Phoenix
I sat around, waiting for
visiting hours to begin at
the detention center.

-Phoenix
I had to talk to Maya
as soon as possible.

September 6, 9:07 AM
Detention Center
Visitor's Room

-Phoenix
(Wow, they have poor Maya
locked up like a criminal.)

-Maya
Oh!

-Maya
It's you! The lawyer...

-Maya
G-good morning.

-Phoenix
Good morning!

-Phoenix
(She looks so tired...)

-Maya
Um...

-Maya
Are you going to
be my attorney?

-Phoenix
Well, that's what I wanted
to talk to you about...

***It's up to you***************************
*
-Phoenix
* (I'd better give it
* to her straight...)
*
* -Phoenix
* It's up to you.
*
* -Maya
* Up... to me?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yes. I don't think this is
* something I should decide.
*
* -Phoenix
* After all, you're the one
* in trouble here.
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* They're never going to
* believe me... are they?
*
* -Maya
* Even you, when you found me
* in the office. You looked at
* me like I had done it!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Of course I will*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* (First things first, I better
* get her cheered up...)
*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah, of course I will!
* Cheer up!
*
* -Maya
* R-really...?
*
* -Phoenix
* (Whoa! Did I say the wrong
* thing? She looks sadder now!)
*
* -Phoenix
* Um... what... what's wrong?
* You don't think I can do it?
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* No... no one could!
*
* -Maya
* Who would believe me?
*
* -Maya
* Even you, when you found me
* in the office. You looked at
* me like I had done it!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Sorry, not a chance**********************
*
* -Phoenix
* (Maybe if I joke a bit
* she'll cheer up...)
*
* -Phoenix
* Hah hah!
* No way, Jose!
*
* -Phoenix
* Just kidding...
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* (Eh heh. Whoops.
* That didn't go so well.)
*
* -Maya
* ...Heh...
*
* -Phoenix
* Huh?
*
* -Phoenix
* M-Maya...?
*
* -Phoenix
* Was that a... chuckle?
*
* -Maya
* What?
*
* -Maya
* N-no!
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* It wasn't very
* believable, was it?
*
* -Phoenix
* (Not really...)
*
* -Maya
* I-I'm sorry!
*
* -Maya
* I just thought, since
* you'd made a joke...
*
* -Maya
* Please, don't mind me!
* You're doing just fine!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Who's trying to
* cheer up who here!?)
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* I knew it.
*
* -Maya
* No one will believe me.
*
* -Phoenix
* What?
*
* -Maya
* Even you--when you found me
* in the office. You looked at
* me like I had done it!
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
(Did I look at her
like that?)

-Phoenix
No, no! I never thought...

-Maya
I-it's okay.
I understand.

-Maya
...

-Maya
And.. I've also heard
about you.

-Phoenix
Heard...? Heard what
about me?

-Maya
I... was talking to my sister
on the phone the other day...

-Mia
"Today was my junior partner's
first time in court."

-Maya
Wow! Really?
How'd that go?

-Mia
"It was quite the scene!"

-Mia
"Honestly, I was on edge
the whole time. It's
been a while..."

-Maya
Hah! So, he crashed and
burned?

-Mia
"...He's a genius."

-Mia
"One of those 'strike fear
into the hearts of evil'
types..."

-Mia
"The only thing he's lacking
is... experience."

-Maya
Huh, sounds like it was fun!

-Maya
Well, I know who to go to if
I ever get into trouble now!

-Mia
"I don't know, Maya."

-Mia
"I think you might want
to wait... give him three
more years."

-Mia
"That is, unless you want
to be found guilty."

-Maya
That's what she said!

-Phoenix
...

-Maya
I-I'm sorry!

-Maya
I didn't mean to
trouble you...

-Phoenix
No, it's okay.
It's true, I guess.

-Phoenix
But... at the same time,
I can't just sit and watch!

-Phoenix
When I think of the person
who did this to Mia...

-Maya
...

-Maya
I know...

***Present The Thinker**********************
*
* -Phoenix

* Poor Sis... *sniff*

********************************************

***Present Glass Shards*********************
*
* -Phoenix
* This was lying next

*
* -Maya
* I saw that too.
*
* -Maya
* They said they thought
* these were pieces of a

*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah, that seems

* *
* * -Phoenix
* * No, I don't.
* *
* * -Phoenix

***Present Maya's Memo**********************

-Phoenix
I wanted to ask you
about your cell phone...

-Maya
That detective took it

-Phoenix
(So, Gumshoe took it...)

-Phoenix
(I'll have to try to
get it back next time
I see him...)

***Present other****************************

* Sorry... I've never

***Talk about "Maya"************************
*
* -Phoenix
* There's something I've
* been wanting to ask you...
*
* -Maya
* Yes?
*
* -Phoenix
* What's with that outfit?
*
* -Maya
* Oh, this?
*
* -Maya
* This is what all acolytes
* wear. It's my uniform, you
* could say.
*
* -Phoenix
* A-acolytes? Like people in
* religious training? What is
* it you do?
*
* -Maya
* Oh! It's nothing
* strange, really!
*
* -Maya
* I'm a spirit medium.
* ...In training.
*
* -Phoenix
* A s-spirit medium!?
* (I'm pretty sure that
* qualifies as strange.)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The day of the crime"********
*
* -Phoenix
* Could you tell me about
* the day of the murder?
*
* -Maya
* Yes!
*
* -Maya
* Let's see... that morning,
* I got a call from my sister.
*
* -Maya
* She wanted me to hold onto
* a piece of evidence for an
* upcoming trial.
*
* -Phoenix
* Evidence?
*
* -Maya
* Yes. That clock shaped like
* "The Thinker."
*
* -Phoenix
* (The one Larry made...)
*
* -Phoenix
* How could that have been
* evidence in a case?
*
* -Maya
* Um, right, she said
* something about that...
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* I remember!
*
* -Maya
* Do you want to hear it
* in her own voice?
*
* -Phoenix
* H-her own voice!?
*
* -Maya
* Yes.
*
* -Maya
* I'm pretty sure our
* conversation is on
* my cell phone.
*
* -Phoenix
* You recorded it!
*
* -Maya
* Yeah! I forgot how to
* delete those things.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Your cell phone"*************
*
* -Phoenix
* So, you say you have a
* conversation with your
* sister on your cell phone?
*
* -Phoenix
* Let's hear it!
*
* -Maya
* Right!
*
* -Maya
* Oh!
*
* -Maya
* I just remembered: that
* detective took my cell phone.
*
* -Maya
* Sorry.
*
* -Phoenix
* Oh, right.
* (Of course...)
*
* -Phoenix
* Next time I see Detective
* Gumshoe I'll ask him for it.
*
* -Maya
* I'll write you a note so
* you don't forget, okay?
*
* -Phoenix
* Sure, thanks.
*
* Maya's Memo added

********************************************

***Talk about "The day of the crime" again**
*
* -Phoenix
* Could you tell me about
* the day of the murder?
*
* -Phoenix
* Sorry... I know
* it must be hard.
*
* -Maya
* No, it's okay.
*
* -Maya
* All I've been doing the
* last few hours is talking
* about it.
*
* -Maya
* I've kind of gotten
* used to it...
*
* -Maya
* Let's see... that morning,
* I got a call from my sister.
*
* -Maya
* She wanted me to hold onto
* a piece of evidence for an
* upcoming trial.
*
* -Phoenix
* (That's "The Thinker" clock
* that Larry made.)
*
* -Phoenix
* (It practically qualifies
* as a serial murderer by now.)
*
* -Phoenix
* So then, when did you
* arrive at the office?
*
* -Maya
* It was right around 9:00.
*
* -Maya
* The lights were off and...
* I could smell blood.
*
* -Maya
* Th-then I found her.
* My sister...
*
* -Phoenix
* Thanks, Maya.
*
* -Phoenix
* That's all I need
* to hear for now.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Spirit mediums"**************
*
* -Phoenix
* So you're an acolyte.
* A, er, medium-in-training.
*
* -Maya
* That's right.
*
* -Maya
* The Fey family, especially the
* women, have always been very
* sensitive to the spirit world.
*
* -Phoenix
* Wait a second, you said
* the "Fey Family"?
*
* -Phoenix
* So, Mia was into
* this stuff too?
*
* -Maya
* Of course!
*
* -Maya
* She left the mountain to
* "follow her career," she said.
*
* -Maya
* Her powers were first-
* class, too!
*
* -Phoenix
* (I... I had no idea.)
*
* -Phoenix
* Hmm...
*
* -Phoenix
* Wait...!
*
* -Maya
* What?
*
* -Phoenix
* So, you're a real, honest-
* to-goodness spirit medium?
* With E.S.P. and all that?
*
* -Maya
* Yes.
* ...In training.
*
* -Phoenix
* Well, can't you contact
* Mia's spirit, then?
*
* -Phoenix
* We can just ask
* her who killed her!
*
* -Maya
* ...!
*
* -Maya
* I-I'm sorry...
*
* -Maya
* I'm still in training.
*
* -Maya
* I couldn't do something
* on that level...
*
* -Phoenix
* (Hmm... I thought that
* would be too easy.)
*

AFTER:
   1) Talking about everything

-Maya
...

-Maya
Um...!

-Phoenix
Huh? Something the matter?

-Maya
Um... I was wondering,
could I ask you a favor?

-Phoenix
...?

-Maya
This is the address of
a famous lawyer.

-Maya
My sister gave me
this a long time ago.

-Maya
She said if I was ever in
trouble, I should call him.

-Maya
And, well, I'm in trouble.

-Maya
Do you think you could go
ask him to represent me?

-Phoenix
(Hmm...)

***Accept***********************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Sure, why not?
* I'll go ask.
*
* -Maya
* Thank you so much!
*

***Refuse***********************************
*
* -Phoenix
* I'm sorry...

* I think this is the kind

* do yourself.
*
* -Maya
* ...You're right.
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* Something wrong?
*
* -Maya
* Actually, I asked the police
* to contact him, and they
* tried calling a few times.
*
* -Maya
* Nobody could get
* a hold of him!
*
* -Phoenix
* They couldn't find him?

* I have no one left to ask!

* I'm just worried what will

*
* CONTINUE

********************************************

-Maya
They told me that if I don't
find one, the state will pick
an attorney to defend me.

-Phoenix
When will that happen?

-Maya
They're giving me until
4:00 this afternoon.

-Phoenix
(And visiting hours are almost
up... I'd better hurry!)

-Phoenix
Right, I'll be back!

No, no, Phoenix Wright.

Ah, guess I got the

Sorry 'bout that.

That Butz guy, he was

no killer! Right?

* an almost abnormal passion.)

***Present The Thinker**********************
*
* -Phoenix
* I was wondering, do you
* know anything about this?
*
* -Gumshoe
* That statue?
* That's the murder weapon.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Huh? He thinks the clock
* is just a statue, too...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (I'm starting to wish I'd
* never seen this thing.)
*
********************************************

***Present Glass Shards*********************
*
* -Phoenix
* There was broken glass
* at the crime scene, right?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Hmm? Oh, that?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Seems like a glass stand
* next to the victim fell over.
*
* -Gumshoe
* The glass shards were pieces
* of the broken stand.
*
********************************************

***Present Receipt**************************
*
* -Phoenix
* There was a piece of
* paper next to the victim,
* wasn't there?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Yeah. The one with the
* killer's name written on it!
*
* -Phoenix
* Are you sure that Mia
* wrote it herself?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Given the condition of the
* writing, it's hard to say if
* it's her handwriting or not.
*
* -Phoenix
* (So there's no proof
* that Mia wrote it.)
*
********************************************

***Present Maya's Memo**********************
*
* -Phoenix
* I was wondering... did you
* see Maya Fey's cell phone?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Oh that?
* I have that.
*
* -Phoenix
* Do you think you
* could give it back?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Sure!
* I mean, wait a second, pal!
*
* -Gumshoe
* Tricky lawyer!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Uh-oh, he's on to me!)
*
* ***Tell him straight************************
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * (Hmm... if I tell him why
* * I want it there's no way
* * he'll give it to me!)
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * Something the matter?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Oh, no, it's just...
* * You know, Detective!
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * Nope.
* * I know nothing, pal!
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * That cell phone has a lot of
* * numbers on it... like her
* * boyfriend's...
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * A cell phone holds all a
* * little girl's sweetest
* * and spiciest secrets!
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * Urk? Y-you're trying

* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * Sorry, pal. I already checked
* * all the numbers in memory!
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Impressive! You're
* * quite the detective.
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * Uh huh. Oh, here, you
* * can have the phone back.
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * There weren't any suspicious
* * call records in there,
* * after all.

* * CONTINUE

* *
* * -Phoenix

* * -Gumshoe
* * Something the matter?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Oh, no, um...
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * T-that carrying strap
* * on the cell phone...
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * This? Hmm... it says "The
* * Steel Samurai: Warrior of
* * Neo Olde Tokyo"...
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * "The Steel Samurai"... that
* * action hero on TV?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Yeah, you see that strap is
* * a collector's item...
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * She... was worried it might
* * get lost if it went down
* * to the precinct.
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * That what she said?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Um. Yes.
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * ...
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * Okay, pal.
* *
* * -Gumshoe
* * I wrote down all the numbers

* Thanks for this!
*

* Don't mention it, pal.

* -Gumshoe
* When it comes to dealing
* with lawyers, "fight fair
* and square," is our motto!
*
* -Phoenix
* (I don't know how I feel,

-Gumshoe
You all done, pal?

-Phoenix
Um, yes, thank you.
I'll be heading out now.

-Gumshoe
Oh, wait.

-Gumshoe
One more thing I wanted
to mention to you.

-Gumshoe
I don't suppose you're
planning on talking to
that witness.

-Gumshoe
Anyway, you'd better not!

-Gumshoe
No influencing the witness
with your lawyerly ways, pal!

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
(Come to think of it, I had
completely forgotten about
her...)

-Phoenix
The... witness?

-Gumshoe
Yeah, Miss April May.

-Gumshoe
I'm sorry 'bout this...

-Gumshoe
But I can't tell you
anything about her!

-Phoenix
(Well, you just told me
her name, Miss May, huh?)

-Phoenix
So you've sent her
home already, then?

-Gumshoe
Ahah! You're trying your
lawyerly tricks on me now!

-Gumshoe
She's not to go outside her
room until the trial!

-Phoenix
(So... she's still in the
hotel across the way.)

-Phoenix
I guess I should no better
than to try to get a
detective to leak information.

-Gumshoe
You got that right, pal!

-Phoenix
(Time to pay a visit
to Miss May!)

***Examine table****************************

* -Phoenix
* Even I can tell someone

***Examine plant****************************

Sorry.

I see...

* -Maya
* Thank you.

********************************************

***Talk about "Your family"*****************
*
* -Phoenix
* What about your family?
*
* -Maya
* I only had my sister.
*
* -Maya
* My father died when
* I was very young.
*
* -Maya
* And I don't know
* where my mother is.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Don't know...?
* So she could still be alive?)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Your mother"*****************
*
* -Maya
* The women in my family have
* been mediums for generations.
*
* -Maya
* They say that E.S.P.
* runs in our blood.
*
* -Maya
* About fifteen years ago,
*
* -Maya
* our family was involved
* in an... incident.
*
* -Maya
* There was a man,
* and he... he...
*
* -Maya
* He ruined our mother's life.
*
* -Phoenix
* ("Ruined"...?)
*
* -Maya
* After that, she disappeared.
*
* -Maya
* Several years after that,
*
* -Maya
* my sister announced she would
* "become a lawyer" and she
* left the mountain.
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* So, you live by yourself?
*
* -Maya
* Yes.
* I've gotten used to it.
*
* -Maya
* Oh, also...
*
* -Maya
* I had to become independent,
* or I would lose my E.S.P.!
*
* -Phoenix
* (I feel bad for her,
* all by herself up
* on that mountain...)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Your mother's enemy"*********
*
* -Phoenix
* So, who was this man
* who, um, "ruined" your mother?
*
* -Maya
* About 15 years ago...
* there was an unusual
* murder case.
*
* -Maya
* It made quite a stir,
* everyone was talking
* about it, apparently.
*
* -Maya
* The police were running out
* of leads, and they were
* getting desperate...
*
* -Phoenix
* Wait... they didn't use
* a spirit medium, did they?
*
* -Maya
* The police convinced my mother
* to try to contact the victim.
*
* -Phoenix
* Wow...
* So, what happened?
*
* -Maya
* The case was solved...
* we thought.
*
* -Phoenix
* You "thought"...?
*
* -Maya
* The man my mother helped
* the police capture was
* innocent.
*
* -Phoenix
* ...!
*
* -Maya
* The police's consultation with
* a medium had all been carried
* out in secret, of course.
*
* -Maya
* But...
*
* -Maya
* A man found out about it
* and leaked it to the press.
*
* -Maya
* He told all the papers that
* my mother was a fraud, and the
* media jumped on it big time.
*
* -Maya
* She... my mother... became
* the laughing stock of the
* nation.
*
* -Phoenix
* I see.
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* White...
*
* -Phoenix
* Excuse me? White?
*
* -Maya
* That was his name.
* My sister told me.
*
* -Phoenix
* White? Hmm...

You're the lawyer, aren't you?
The detective told me...

-April
He said, "Don't say nothing

Gee! This is all like

-April
It's all so exciting
I can hardly contain
myself!

-April
Ooh! Let me go freshen up

this one.)

***Examine painting*************************

Y-yes, well... yes.

-Phoenix
(What should I do?)

-Phoenix
(Do I just leave her
and go home...?)

***Go home**********************************
*
* -Phoenix
* (There's nothing left
* here for me to do...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (She'll be better off with
* a state-appointed lawyer.)
*
* -Phoenix
* I think I'd better
* get home now.
*
* -Maya
* Good-bye.
*
* -Phoenix
* It was a few days later when
* I found out how the story
* ended.
*
* -Phoenix
* The result of the trial
* was in the newspaper.
*
* -Phoenix
* "Guilty."
*
* -Phoenix
* I'll probably never
* meet her again.
*
* -Phoenix
* Did I make the
* right choice?
*
* -Phoenix
* Will I ever know?
*
* -Phoenix
* Mia... if you can hear
* me, please, tell me!
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* Not! I can't let
* that happen!
*
* -Phoenix
* I'm not leaving here until
* she takes me as her lawyer!
*
* CONTINUE

********************************************

***Defend Maya******************************
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
I've made up my mind!

-Phoenix
I'm going to defend you
whether you want me to
or not!

-Maya
!

-Maya
Why?

-Phoenix
Why?
Well...

***I can't abandon you**********************
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* (No one is as sad as a
* person without any friends.)
*
* CONTINUE

********************************************

***Someone else is the culprit**************
*
* -Phoenix
* You aren't the culprit!
* Someone else is!
*
* -Maya
* H-how do you know?
*
* -Phoenix
* I, um, I have a hunch...
*
* -Phoenix
* (Given the evidence, it would
* be easy to assume that Maya
* was the killer.)
*
* -Phoenix
* (But there's something
* about this whole thing
* that smells... fishy.)
*
* -Phoenix
* (That witness's strange
* behavior... was that
* all an act?)
*
* -Phoenix
* (And the way that lawyer
* refused to help out Maya...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (But more than all that,
* she has no one left
* to help her!)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Nothing is more sad,
* or more lonely than that.)
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***I don't know why*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* To be honest,
* I don't know.
*
* -Maya
* You don't know?
*
* -Phoenix
* (Is this girl sitting in
* front of me the killer?)
*
* -Phoenix
* (All the evidence
* seems to say "yes.")
*
* -Phoenix
* (But there's something
* about this whole thing
* that smells... fishy.)
*
* -Phoenix
* (That witness's strange
* behavior... was that
* all an act?)

* -Phoenix
* (And the way that lawyer
* refused to help out Maya...)

********************************************

-Phoenix
(I know... I've been there.
A long time ago.)

-Phoenix
(Why did I become a lawyer
in the first place...?)

-Phoenix
(Because someone has to look
out for the people who have
no one on their side.)

-Phoenix
Maya...

-Phoenix
I won't abandon you.
You can count on me.

-Maya
...

-Maya
That's so kind of you...

-Maya
*sniff*...

-Maya
...

-Phoenix
Well!

-Phoenix
Let's fight this one
and get you out of here!

-Maya
R-right!
Thank you!

-Phoenix
(Whew, she smiled at last.
She looks like an entirely
different person!)

-Phoenix
One last question...
You are innocent, right?

-Maya
Yes!

-Maya
And I trust you...

-Maya
So you trust me,
too, okay?

-Phoenix
It's a deal.

-Phoenix
(So, what next...)

-Phoenix
(There's something that's
been bugging me...)

-Phoenix
(Just what was inside
that strange woman's
drawer?)

-Phoenix
(It was when I tried to
look into the drawer that
she got all defensive.)

-Phoenix
(There has to be
something in there!)

MOVE TO: Gatewater Hotel

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Bellboy
Good afternoon, sir!

-Phoenix
Excuse me, you are...?

-Bellboy
Ah, I beg your pardon, sir!

-Bellboy
I am the bellboy of
this establishment,
at your service, sir.

-Phoenix
Oh, right.

-Bellboy
I've just come up to
deliver room service, sir.

-Phoenix
Um... do you know where
Miss May might be?

-Bellboy
Ah. I believe our guest
Miss May is currently using
the, er, facilities...?

-Bellboy
If you've no need of
anything, I'll be
taking my leave.

-Bellboy
Please, stay as long as you
like. Enjoy...

-Phoenix
Yeah...

-Phoenix
Wait... no! Hey!

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
(Why does it seem like every
time I come here, I end up
embarrassing myself?)

-Phoenix
(Wait... now's my chance
to snoop around a bit!)

-Bellboy
Ah, I almost forgot!

-Phoenix
Gah!
Y-you came back quick!

-Bellboy
Might I ask you to inform
Miss May that there is a
message for her?

-Bellboy
Please tell her that
Mr. White, of Bluecorp phoned.

-Phoenix
Oh, right. Sure.

-Phoenix
(Mr. White... of Bluecorp?
Where have I heard that name?)

-Maya
White...

-Maya
That was his name.
My sister told me.

-Phoenix
("White" was the name of the
guy who ruined Mia and
Maya's mother!)

-Phoenix
(Could it be a coincidence?)

***Examine open drawer**********************
*
* -Phoenix
* There's a screwdriver sticking
* out of that half-open drawer.
*
* -Phoenix
* Now's my chance to
* see what's inside!
*
* -Phoenix
* ...!
*
* -Phoenix
* What do we have here!
*
* -Phoenix
* A... wiretap?
* Hmm!
*
* -Phoenix
* What would a woman like her
* be doing with a thing like this?
*
* Wiretap added to
* the Court Record.
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
There is definitely
something suspicious
about this "Miss May"!

-Phoenix
Why would she have something
like this in her hotel room?

-Phoenix
There's a story behind all
this, I know it!

-Phoenix
Alright...

-Phoenix
I'll be using this bit of
evidence in tomorrow's
trial, that's for sure.

-Phoenix
For Maya's sake...

-Phoenix
I'll get to this woman's
bottom! Wait... I mean
... you know what I mean.

-April
Oh, bellboy...?
Still there?

-Phoenix
(Uh oh, time to scram!)

-Phoenix
(I look forward to tangoing
with you tomorrow, Miss May!)

-Phoenix
(In court!)

|DAY 2 - TRIAL                |
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

September 7, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 1

-Judge
The court is now in session
for the trial of Ms. Maya Fey.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution is
ready, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
The defense
is ready, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
(Miles Edgeworth...)

-Phoenix
(I'd better not show any signs
of weakness today, or he'll
be on me in an instant.)

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth.
Please give the court
your opening statement.

-Edgeworth
Thank you, Your Honor.
The defendant, Ms. Maya Fey,
was at the scene of the crime.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution has evidence
she committed this murder...

-Edgeworth
and we have a witness
who saw her do it.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution sees no
reason to doubt the facts
of this case, Your Honor.

-Judge
I see.

-Judge
Thank you, Mr. Edgeworth.
Let's begin then.

-Edgeworth
You may call your
first witness.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution calls the
chief officer at the scene,
Detective Gumshoe!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
Witness, please state your
name and profession to
the court.

-Gumshoe
Sir!

-Gumshoe
My name's Dick Gumshoe, sir!

-Gumshoe
I'm the detective in
charge of homicides
down at the precinct, sir!

-Edgeworth
Detective Gumshoe.

-Edgeworth
Please, describe for us
the details of this murder.

-Gumshoe
Very well, sir!
Let me use this floor map
of the office to explain.

-Gumshoe
The body was found by
this window, here.

-Edgeworth
And the cause of death?

-Gumshoe
Loss of blood due to being
struck by a blunt object, sir!

-Gumshoe
The murder weapon was a statue
of "The Thinker" found next
to the body, sir!

-Gumshoe
It was heavy enough to
be a deadly weapon, even
in a girl's hands, sir!

-Judge
The court accepts the
statue as evidence.

-Phoenix
(They're still calling
it a "statue"...)

Floor plans added to
the Court Record.

-Edgeworth
Now, Detective...

-Gumshoe
Y-yes sir!

-Edgeworth
You immediately arrested
Ms. Maya Fey, who was found
at the scene, correct?

-Edgeworth
Can you tell me why?

-Gumshoe
Yes sir!
I had hard evidence
she did it, sir!

-Judge
Hmm.
Detective Gumshoe,

-Judge
Please testify to the court
about this "hard evidence."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Maya Fey's Arrest --

(1)
-Gumshoe
As soon as the phone call came
in, I rushed to the scene!

(2)
-Gumshoe
There were two people
there already:

(3)
-Gumshoe
The defendant, Ms. Maya Fey,
and the lawyer, Mr. Phoenix
Wright.

(4)
-Gumshoe
I immediately arrested
Ms. Maya Fey!

(5)
-Gumshoe
Why? We had a witness
account describing her!

(6)
-Gumshoe
The witness saw Ms. Maya
Fey at the very moment of
the murder!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...
The very moment, you say.

-Judge
Very well. Mr. Wright,
you may begin your
cross-examination.

-Phoenix
Y-yes, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
(Cross-examine what...?)

-Phoenix
(I couldn't see a single
contradiction in that
testimony...)

...whoosh...

SMACK!

-Phoenix
(Hey! Maya just threw
something at me...)

-Phoenix
(What's this?)

-Phoenix
("When my sister couldn't
find any contradictions
in a witness's testimony")

-Phoenix
("she would bluff it and
press the witness on
every detail!")

-Phoenix
("The witness always slips
up and says something
wrong...")

-Phoenix
("It worked lots of times!")

-Phoenix
(Heh... I should have expected
Maya would know some of
her sister's tricks!)

-Phoenix
(Alright.
Let's give this a try!)

-Judge
Something the matter?

-Phoenix
No, Your Honor.
I'd like to begin my
cross-examination.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Maya Fey's Arrest --

(1)
-Gumshoe
As soon as the phone call came
in, I rushed to the scene!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Who did you say you
   got a call from?

   -Gumshoe
   Hey pal, don't play
   dumb! You know who!

   -Gumshoe
   The call was from a customer
   at the Gatewater Hotel, right
   across from the crime scene!

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm... okay, I pressed.
   Not sure it did much, though.)

   -Phoenix
   Right.
   Please continue.

(2)
-Gumshoe
There were two people
there already:

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Detective Gumshoe, how
   long would you say it took,

   -Phoenix
   between you receiving
   the call, and your arrival
   at the scene of the crime?

   -Gumshoe
   Hmm, right... I'd say
   it was about 3 minutes!

   -Phoenix
   Th-that's pretty fast!

   -Gumshoe
   Our motto this month
   is "quick response"!

   -Gumshoe
   That's how I got there
   before the killer got away!

   -Edgeworth
   Indeed!

   -Edgeworth
   So, tell us who the two
   people you found on the
   scene were.

   -Gumshoe
   Yes sir!

(3)
-Gumshoe
The defendant, Ms. Maya Fey,
and the lawyer, Mr. Phoenix
Wright.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you absolutely
   sure it was us?

   -Gumshoe
   Listen pal, your dumb act
   will only get you so far!

   -Gumshoe
   With her funky hippie clothes
   and your spiky hair?

   -Gumshoe
   You two stand out like...
   like suspicious people
   at a crime scene!

   -Phoenix
   (Well... he does have
   a point about her.)

   -Phoenix
   (She is pretty unmistakable.)

   -Phoenix
   (I should pick my points
   to press with a little
   more care...)

(4)
-Gumshoe
I immediately arrested
Ms. Maya Fey!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why's that?
   What's your reason?

(5)
-Gumshoe
Why? We had a witness
account describing her!

   END CROSS-EXAMINATION

(6)
-Gumshoe
The witness saw Ms. Maya
Fey at the very moment of
the murder!

   END CROSS-EXAMINATION

-Phoenix
(I can't see a single
contradiction in there!)

-Phoenix
(I'll just have to take
Maya's advice and press
him on anything suspicious!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*HOLD IT!*

-Phoenix
Hold on just one second!

-Gumshoe
Y-yeah?

-Phoenix
If I heard correctly...

-Phoenix
You said you arrested her
because you had "hard
evidence" she did it, correct?

-Gumshoe
Huh?

-Gumshoe
Did... did I say that? Me?

-Phoenix
I heard you say it!

-Judge
You did say it.

-Edgeworth
You said it.

-Phoenix
Exactly what about this
suspicious woman in pink's
claim was "hard evidence"!?

-Gumshoe
Wh-what!?

-Gumshoe
Miss May isn't suspicious,
and she sure isn't pink, pal!

-Gumshoe
W-well, I guess she
is pink...

-Judge
That's enough,
Detective Gumshoe.

-Judge
Do you have any more
solid proof other than
her claims, Detective?

-Gumshoe
Umm...

-Phoenix
(Hmm! I guess pressing
can have its advantages!)

-Gumshoe
...

-Gumshoe
Yes.

-Phoenix
(Gah!)

-Gumshoe
Sorry, I got the order
of things mixed up in my
testimony, Your Honor Sir!

-Gumshoe
There was something I
should have told you
about first, Your Honor!

-Judge
Very well, Detective. Let's
hear your testimony again.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Hard Evidence --

(1)
-Gumshoe
After securing the suspect,
I examined the scene of
the crime with my own eyes.

(2)
-Gumshoe
I found a memo written on
a piece of paper next to
the victim's body!

(3)
-Gumshoe
On it, the word "Maya"
was written clearly in blood!

(4)
-Gumshoe
Lab test results showed that
the blood was the victim's!

(5)
-Gumshoe
Also, there was blood found
on the victim's finger!

(6)
-Gumshoe
Before she died, the victim
wrote the killer's name!

-Gumshoe
How you like that?
That's my "hard evidence"!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Before we begin cross-
examination, I have a
question for you, Detective.

-Gumshoe
Y-Your Honor?

-Judge
Why didn't you testify about
this vital piece of evidence
the first time!?

-Gumshoe
Ah... eh... I know. I'm real
embarrassed I forgot about
it, Your Honor Sir.

-Judge
Try to be more careful!

-Judge
Very well, the defense may
begin its cross-examination.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Hard Evidence --

(1)
-Gumshoe
After securing the suspect,
I examined the scene of
the crime with my own eyes.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   And did you find
   any evidence?

   -Gumshoe
   Now, now, don't jump
   the gun on me, pal.

   -Gumshoe
   Just listen. I'm getting
   to the good part!

   -Phoenix
   (I got a bad feeling
   about this...)

(2)
-Gumshoe
I found a memo written on
a piece of paper next to
the victim's body!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Just because you found it
   next to the body doesn't
   mean the victim wrote it!

   -Gumshoe
   Ho hoh!
   Then who did write
   it, smarty-pants?

   -Phoenix
   Wh-who? Um...

   ***The killer*******************************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Th-the killer!
   * Anyone can see that!
   *
   * -Gumshoe
   * Hoh.
   *
   * -Gumshoe
   * You're saying the killer
   * wrote her OWN name!?
   * Buddy, please!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * She was framed!
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * *OBJECTION!*
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Hold on.
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * If that's the case,
   * where's your evidence?
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Ah...
   * (Urk!)
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Hah! I guess that was
   * a bit of a tall order
   * for you.
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Those without evidence
   * shouldn't open their
   * mouths, Mr. Wright.
   *
   * -Gumshoe
   * Yeah, pal!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (Argh...!)
   *
   ********************************************

   ***Miss May*********************************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Well... it could have been
   * the witness, Miss May!
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * *OBJECTION!*
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Hold on.
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * The witness was in her
   * hotel room, not the office.
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Try pulling the other leg,
   * Mr. Wright!
   *
   * -Gumshoe
   * Yeah, and while you're at
   * it, pull mine too, pal!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (Argh...!)
   *
   ********************************************

   ***I did************************************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * It... it could have been me!
   *
   * -Gumshoe
   * What! S-so it was you!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * No, no, no, I'm just saying
   * it COULD have been me!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Can you prove it wasn't?
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * *OBJECTION!*
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Hold on.
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * So, you admit to this?
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * You admit that you
   * wrote the note?
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Uh...
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Listen to me, Mr. Wright.
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * This is a court of law, and
   * I expect you to refrain from
   * making thoughtless statements!
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Amateur!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (...!)
   *
   ********************************************

   -Edgeworth
   Well, Detective?
   Tell us what was written
   on that memo you found.

(3)
-Gumshoe
On it, the word "Maya"
was written clearly in blood!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Do you have proof it
   was Mia who wrote that!?

   -Gumshoe
   Of course I do, pal!

   -Phoenix
   (Uh oh... he sounded pretty
   confident. This might
   not be good...)

(4)
-Gumshoe
Lab test results showed that
the blood was the victim's!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What kind of "tests"
   were these again?

   -Gumshoe
   Huh? What kind?
   Umm... well...

   -Gumshoe
   I hear they take the, um,
   little bits in the blood,
   the... er... hemo... hemogl...

   -Gumshoe
   Hermo... goblins... hobgob...
   Er...? Herma-goblin bobbin...

   -Gumshoe
   I-I refuse to testify
   on this matter, sir!

   -Gumshoe
   I'm no expert on blood tests!

   -Judge
   Yes, that was quite clear.
   You may continue with
   your testimony.

   -Gumshoe
   Th-thanks, pal.
   I mean Your Honor Sir.

   -Edgeworth
   Detective Gumshoe.

   -Gumshoe
   Y-yeah?

   -Edgeworth
   I think you can expect
   a pleasant bonus in your
   next pay check.

   -Gumshoe
   Oh? Oh hoh hoh.

   -Phoenix
   (That was a mess...)

   -Gumshoe
   Right! Where was I?

(5)
-Gumshoe
Also, there was blood found
on the victim's finger!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   On which hand was the
   bloody finger, Detective?

   -Gumshoe
   The right hand!

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm... she WAS right
   handed...)

   -Gumshoe
   Hah hah hah!
   Nice try!

   -Phoenix
   (Uh oh... I guess it wasn't
   too hard to see what I
   was getting at there.)

(6)
-Gumshoe
Before she died, the victim
wrote the killer's name!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Detective Gumshoe!

   -Phoenix
   Do you get a lot of cases
   where the victim actually
   writes the killer's name?

   -Gumshoe
   Sure! It happens all the
   time in books and the movies!

   -Phoenix
   This isn't a movie, Detective.

   -Gumshoe
   Oof!

   -Phoenix
   Let's talk about
   reality, shall we?

   -Gumshoe
   Umm... I guess, I haven't
   heard of many cases... no.

   -Phoenix
   Don't you find it a little
   odd that the victim would
   write down a name?

   -Phoenix
   Especially the name
   of her own sister?

   -Gumshoe
   Ah, yeah, actually,
   you got a point, pal.

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   Stop right there.

   -Edgeworth
   The witness's opinion
   on the matter is irrelevant!

   -Edgeworth
   The facts are clear: the
   victim wrote down the
   name of the accused...

   -Edgeworth
   The victim told us
   the name of her killer!

   -Judge
   Order! Order!

   -Phoenix
   (That didn't go so well...)

   -Gumshoe
   Th-that's right!
   What he said!

-Phoenix
(That's his whole
testimony...)

-Phoenix
(Okay, there has to be
a contradiction in there
somewhere. Let's find it!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Detective Gumshoe!

-Phoenix
There's one thing I
want you to clarify
for me here.

-Phoenix
You say that the victim,
Mia Fey, wrote this note.

-Phoenix
That she was accusing
the defendant, Maya Fey?

-Phoenix
That's really what
you're saying?

-Gumshoe
Wh-what? This isn't one
of those lawyer tricks,
now, is it?

-Gumshoe
Of course she wrote it!
Who else could have!?

-Phoenix
You have it backwards,
Detective.

-Gumshoe
B-backwards?

-Phoenix
The victim is the only
person who absolutely
could NOT have written t!

-Phoenix
This is a report from
your department, Detective.

-Phoenix
"Immediate death due to a blow
from a blunt object."

-Phoenix
She died immediately!

-Gumshoe
But...!

-Phoenix
No "but"-ing your way
out of this one, Detective!

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Judge
The defense has a point.

-Judge
Someone who died immediately
wouldn't have the time to
write anything down.

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
Mr. Wright.

-Edgeworth
I beg your pardon, but when
exactly did you obtain that
autopsy report?

-Phoenix
Wh-when...!?

***The day of the murder********************
*
* -Phoenix
* I... I'm pretty sure it
* was the day of the murder.
*
* -Gumshoe
* You're wrong there, pal!
*
* -Gumshoe
* We didn't write an autopsy
* report 'til the day after!
*
* -Phoenix
* Oh. Right.

-Judge
The prosecution's point
being...?

-Edgeworth
That autopsy report
is outdated, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
Wh-what!?

-Edgeworth
A second autopsy was
performed yesterday,
at my request!

-Edgeworth
"Death was almost immediate
due to a blow from a
blunt object..."

-Edgeworth
"But there is a possibility
the victim lived for several
minutes after the blow."

-Edgeworth
I received these results
this morning.

-Phoenix
N-no way!

-Edgeworth
Your Honor!

-Edgeworth
It's quite easy to imagine
that the victim did have
time to write "Maya"!

-Edgeworth
That is all.

-Judge
I see!

-Phoenix
(Damn you, Edgeworth!)

-Phoenix
(I should have known
you'd have something
up your sleeve!)

-Edgeworth
Why, Mr. Wright,
you look shocked!

-Edgeworth
Something you want to say?

***You're a sham, Edgeworth!****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Mr. Edgeworth...
*
* -Phoenix
* I've heard there's nothing
* you won't do to get
* your verdict...
*
* -Phoenix
* What reason could you possibly
* have had to request a second
* autopsy report?
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright! The defense will
* refrain from personal attacks
* on the prosecution!
*
* -Edgeworth
* No matter, Your Honor...
*
* -Edgeworth
* Mr. Wright.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Say what you will,

-Edgeworth
Your Honor, I submit this
report to the court.

-Judge
U-understood. The court
accepts the evidence.

Autopsy Report updated
in the Court Record.

-Edgeworth
Well, Your Honor?

-Edgeworth
The evidence strongly suggests
the victim was identifying
the killer.

-Judge
I suppose that's the
obvious conclusion, yes.

-Phoenix
(Darn! This isn't good!)

-Edgeworth
The prosecution would like
to call its next witness.

-Edgeworth
This poor, innocent girl saw
the murder with her own eyes!

-Judge
Let the witness Miss April
May take the stand.

-Phoenix
(Exactly what part of her
is "innocent"...?)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
Witness, your name, please.

-April
April May!
At your service! *wink*

-Judge
Order! An introduction should
not require any reaction
from the crowd!

-Judge
The witness will refrain
from wonton winking!

-April
Aww...
Yes, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
(This is not good...)

-Phoenix
(She's already captured
the heart of every man
in the court!)

-Edgeworth
Tell us, where were you on
the night of September 5,
when the murder occurred?

-April
Um... gee... I was, like,
in my hotel room? Tee hee.

-April
I checked in right
after lunch.

-Edgeworth
And this hotel is directly
across from the Fey & Co.
Law Offices?

-April
Mmm... that's right, big boy.

-Judge
Please testify to the court
about what you saw.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Witness's Account --

(1)
-April
It was, like, 9:00
at night. I looked out
the window, y'know!

(2)
-April
And then, oooh! I saw a woman
with long hair being attacked!

(3)
-April
The one attacking her was
the mousey girl sitting
in the defendant's chair!

(4)
-April
Then the woman, like,
dodged to one side and
ran away!

(5)
-April
But that girl, she caught
up to her and... and...
She hit her!

-April
Then the woman
with long hair...

-April
She kinda... slumped.

-April
The end. That's all I saw.
Every little bitsy witsy!
*wink*

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Edgeworth
Well, Your Honor?

-Judge
I see. It is a remarkably
solid testimony.

-Judge
I don't see a need to
trouble the witness any...

-Phoenix
W-wait, Your Honor!

-Judge
Yes, Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
What about my cross-
examination!?

-Judge
I thought the witness's
testimony just now was
quite... firm. Didn't you?

-Edgeworth
Mr. Wright... I understand
you were Ms. Mia Fey's
understudy, were you not?

-Edgeworth
You must know her
techniques well.

-Edgeworth
Her cowardly way of finding
tiny faults in perfectly
good testimonies...

-Phoenix
H-hey! How dare you!

-Judge
Well, Mr. Wright?
Will you cross-examine
the witness?

***Yes, I'm doing it************************
*
* -Phoenix
* I'll gladly proceed with
* the cross-examination.

CROSS EXAMINATION

(1)
-April
It was, like, 9:00
at night. I looked out
the window, y'know!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why did you do that?

   -April
   Huh? "Why"?
   Like, why what?

   -Phoenix
   Why did you look out the
   window? Were you expecting
   to see something?

   -April
   Oh, well, um... gee!

   -Phoenix
   (What? That's it? She can't
   get out of this question
   that easily!)

   -April
   I sort of, y'know.

   -April
   I had a feeling!

   -Phoenix
   (Well, I have a feeling
   she's trying to avoid
   the question!)

   -Phoenix
   (Maybe I should press a
   little harder on this one?)

   ***Go for it********************************

   * -Phoenix
   * (Let's see how far I can

   * Mr. Wright! I will not have
   * you badgering my witness!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * B-badgering?
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * You insist on needling her
   * with these trivial questions.
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * I really don't think it
   * should be allowed.

   * (Yeah! Yeah! Stop him!)
   *
   * (The poor girl!)

   -Edgeworth
   You looked out the window.
   What did you see next?

(2)
-April
And then, oooh! I saw a woman
with long hair being attacked!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   The woman with long hair...
   that was Mia Fey?

   -April
   Um-hmm! Slender, sort of,
   well, some people might say
   pretty, if that's your thing.

   -Phoenix
   (Your... thing?)

   -Edgeworth
   And the person attacking her?

(3)
-April
The one attacking her was
the mousey girl sitting
in the defendant's chair!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   How do you know she
   was the defendant?

   -April
   Huh? Well... y'know!

   -April
   S-she had a girlish physique.
   Women know these things.

   -April
   Look... I-I just know, okay?

   -Edgeworth
   There was only one person at
   the scene of the crime with
   a short, girlish figure.

   -Edgeworth
   The testimony is bulletproof,
   Your Honor.

   -Phoenix
   (He's right...)

   ***Yep, he's right**************************

   * -Phoenix

   * -Phoenix
   * (I'd better not press

   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   She "dodged"? Dodged what!?

   -April
   Well... the attack!

   -Edgeworth
   Please, continue your
   testimony.

(5)
-April
But that girl, she caught
up to her and... and...
She hit her!

   -Phoenix
   How did you know it
   was my client!?

   -April
   Huh? Well, I... gee!

   -April
   First of all, she had
   a girl's physique!

   -April
   And, and secondly,
   she was... she was small!

   Who else could it

Urp!

Mr. Wright!
What's the meaning of this?

-April
Yes, what is the meaning!
Somebody tell me because I'm
clueless! About this, I mean!

-Phoenix
Okay...

-Phoenix
If you had really witnessed
my client, Maya Fey...

-Phoenix
You would have noticed her
clothes before noticing her
physique!

-April
...!

-Phoenix
No one wears clothes
like this on a daily
basis! Except her!

-Phoenix
And I'm no expert on fashion,
but her hairdo looks far from
normal to me!

-Phoenix
However, the witness's
testimony mentions neither
of these things!

-Phoenix
The testimony is bogus!

-April
But... but!

-Judge
Still, we don't know if
she was dressed that way
the night of the murder...

-Phoenix
She was, Your Honor!

-Phoenix
I saw her.

-Phoenix
And so did Detective Gumshoe!

-Phoenix
What do you say to that,
Miss May?

-April
Rowr!
What are you trying to say,
you mean lawyer!

-April
I-I saw what I saw.

-April
I... just didn't think all
the trifling little details
were necessary, darling.

-Judge
Miss May.

-Judge
The court would like to remind
you to please omit nothing
in your testimony.

I'm sorry, Your Honor.
I'll be a good girl.
I promise. *wink*

Your testimony again,
if you would.

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Witness's Account --

(1)
-April
I did see everything!
I did!

(2)
-April
The victim--the woman--dodged
the first attack and ran off
to the right.

(3)
-April
Then the girl in the hippie
clothes ran after her...

(4)
-April
And she hit her with that
weapon! I saw it! I did!

(5)
-April
That... that clock! Um...
the kinda statue-y clock?
"The Thinker," I think?

-April
Well? Does the accuracy of
my report not startle you?
Tee hee!

I... see.

I only wish you had been se
detailed from the beginning.

Please begin the

(1)
-April
I did see everything!
I did!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So, you saw me then, too?

   -April
   Of course!

   -April
   I'd remember that
   spiky hair anywhere!

   -Phoenix
   (Spiky...?)

   -Judge
   The witness will refrain
   from personal attacks on
   the defense attorney.

   -April
   Aww, was I a bad girl?
   I'm sowwy.

   -Judge
   Very well... continue.

(2)
-April
The victim--the woman--dodged
the first attack and ran off
to the right.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Is that "right" as in your
   right, as you looked from
   the hotel?

   -April
   Um... which hand do I
   hold my knife in again...?

   -April
   Right! It was my right
   hand! Right?

   -Edgeworth
   Satisfied, Mr. Wright?
   Please continue.

(3)
-April
Then the girl in the hippie
clothes ran after her...

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   How convenient for you
   to remember her "hippie"
   clothes!

   -April
   That's what you--I mean,
   that's what she was wearing!

   -April
   Oh, and her hair was all
   done up like a bun!

   -Phoenix
   (*sigh*...)

   -Judge
   What happened then?

(4)
-April
And she hit her with that
weapon! I saw it! I did!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Where did this weapon
   come from?

   -April
   She picked it up from the desk!

   -Judge
   I see. What sort
   of weapon was it?

(5)
-April
That... that clock! Um...
the kinda statue-y clock?
"The Thinker," I think?

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   A... clock?

   -Phoenix
   (Didn't this come up
   in another testimony
   recently...?)

   -April
   W-well? Don't look so sour,
   Mr. Lawyer. You can't win
   them all.

   -Phoenix
   (No... but I have a feeling
   I'm on to something now!)

-Phoenix
Her previous testimony must
have been what Edgeworth
wanted her to say...)

-Phoenix
(So this was the testimony
in her own words...?)

-Phoenix
(Time to press and squeeze
the truth out of her!
Figuratively, of course.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Miss May.

-Phoenix
What you said just now
was quite... revealing.

-April
Revealing? Oooh, you'd
like that, wouldn't you.
Naughty Mr. Lawyer...

-Phoenix
You just said that this
statue of "The Thinker"
was a clock.

-Phoenix
But there's no way of
knowing that just by
looking at it!

-April
Urp!

-Phoenix
Another person in much the
same position as you recently
called this a "clock," too...

-Phoenix
And he was found
guilty... of murder!

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Phoenix
Miss May. Can you explain
how you know this was a clock?

-April
Oooh... urp!

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
The witness saw the murder
with her own eyes! That's
all that's important here!

-Edgeworth
The defense is trying to
confuse the issue with
trivial concerns!

-Judge
Yes... yes, of course.
You will withdraw your
question, Mr. Wright.

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
But questions are all
I have, Your Honor!

-Phoenix
And as you may recall,
I've caught murderers with
these questions before!

-Phoenix
(Well, only once...)

-Judge
...

-Judge
...

-Judge
Objection sustained.
You may continue to question
the witness.

-Phoenix
(Whew, that was close.)

-Phoenix
(If he stopped me there,
the trial would be over!)

-April
Huh? What?
So... what happens now?

-Phoenix
What happens now is you
answer my question! How
did you know it was a clock?

-April
What...! Th-that's...

-April
...Because... I heard it?

-April
Yes! I heard
it say the time!

-Phoenix
So, you've been to the
law offices of Fey & Co.!

-April
N-n-no! Hey, I didn't say
that! Why would I go there!

-April
I heard from my hotel room.
Hee hee!

-Edgeworth
The law offices of Fey & Co.,
where the murder took place,
are very close to the hotel.

-Edgeworth
She could easily have
heard the clock!

-Judge
Hmm. Well, Mr. Wright?
Are you satisfied?

-Phoenix
No, Your Honor!

-Phoenix
(I can't give up now!)

-Phoenix
I'm not satisfied because...

***She couldn't have heard it***************

-Edgeworth
I'm afraid you've forgotten
one thing, however.

-Edgeworth
Indeed, the clock is empty.
As you say... it can't ring.

-Edgeworth
However, we must ask: when
was the clockwork removed?

-Edgeworth
If it was after the witness
heard the clock, then there
is no contradiction!

-Judge
!

-Judge
Hmm! That's true. That
is a possibility.

-Judge
The clock might have been
emptied after she heard it.

-Edgeworth
And that is exactly what
happened, Your Honor!

-Judge
Well, Mr. Wright?

-Judge
Can you prove when
the clockwork was removed?

-Edgeworth
Ho hoh!
Impossible, of course...

-Phoenix
I have proof.

-Edgeworth
W-what!?

-Phoenix
Wasn't it you who told
me "proof is everything"?

-Phoenix
Well, I was listening.

-Phoenix
And now I'll show you the
"proof" you like so much!

-Phoenix
The evidence that proves
when the clockwork was
removed is...

***Present something wrong******************

* -Phoenix
* *TAKE THAT!*
*
* -Phoenix
* What do you say to that?
*
* -April
* W-what? I don't rightly

* supposed to mean!
*
* -Judge
* I don't rightly
* understand either.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Ho hoh!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Uh oh... I think I blew it.)

********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
Take a look at this!

-Judge
Hmm. That's a very
cute cell phone.

-April
Oooh hoo!
You have a girlie phone!

-Phoenix
W-wait! Wait! This
isn't my phone!

-Phoenix
Listen!

-Phoenix
This is the defendant's
cell phone, and it contains
a recording...

-Phoenix
A recording of a conversation
she had with the victim on
the day of the murder!

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Edgeworth
The defendant's cell phone!?
Th-this wasn't brought
to my attention!

-Phoenix
Perhaps Detective Gumshoe
overlooked it?

-Edgeworth
*grumble* (The good detective
better remember he's up for
evaluation soon...)

-Phoenix
(My heart goes out
to you, Edgeworth. Not.)

-Phoenix
Let's hear the conversation.

-Cellular
*beep*

...

-Maya
[So you just want me to
hold on to "The Thinker"
for you, then?]

-Mia
[If you could.]

-Mia
[Ah... I should probably tell
you, the clock isn't talking
right now.]

-Maya
[Huh? It's not working?
That's lame!]

-Mia
[I had to take the
clockwork out, sorry.]

...

[September 5, 9:27 AM]

-Cellular
*beep*

-Phoenix
Your Honor,

-Phoenix
I think this recording
makes it clear that the
clockwork was already gone...

-Phoenix
and this was recorded in the
morning, before the witness
even arrived at her hotel!

-April
Muh... muh... muh!?

-Phoenix
Well, Miss May?
Would you care to explain
this to the court?

-Phoenix
Just how did you know
that weapon was a clock!?

-April
...

-April
W-well...!

-April
Well, isn't it o-obvious?

-April
I saw that clock before!

-April
Um... what store was that
again? I-I go to so many!

-April
Oops! I forgot!
*wink*

-Judge
So the witness had seen
it before. That would
make sense.

-Judge
Does the defense have any
objections, Mr. Wright?

***Yes**************************************

* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***No***************************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Oh right... well, if she had

*
* -Phoenix
* (Wait a second!)
*
* -Judge
* Then, the court would like--
*
* -Phoenix
* Hold on!
* P-please wait, Your Honor!
*
* -Judge
* Y-yes...? So you
* do have an objection?
*
* -Phoenix
* Um, yes, well...
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright!
*
* -Phoenix
* Sorry, Your Honor,
* it's just...
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
The witness claims she
had "seen it before."

-Phoenix
But this directly contradicts
a piece of evidence already
submitted to this court!

-Judge
Well then, let's see it.

-Judge
Please produce this evidence
that will prove the witness
had not seen the clock before.

***Present something wrong******************
*
* -Phoenix
* *TAKE THAT!*
*
* -Phoenix
* Here is undeniable proof!
*
* -Edgeworth
* Hah!?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Please, this is a court

* performance art piece!
*
* -Judge
* Hmm...
* Perhaps the defense would
* like to change its mind?
*
* RETURN TO COURT RECORD
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
It's simple.

-Phoenix
This clock was never
in any store, ever!

-April
W-whaaat!?

-Phoenix
A friend of mine
made that clock.

-Phoenix
Only two exist in the world.

-Phoenix
And the one that isn't
here is in police custody!

-April
I-impossible!
Everything is sold in stores!

-Phoenix
Miss May, I think it's high
time you went shopping for
a better excuse...?

-April
Mmpf...

-Phoenix
Oh? Excuses not on sale today?

-April
Oooh? Oh ho ho. Mmmrrrrrph!

-April
Ooooorrrrrrr
ggggghhhhhhh... hhh!!!

-April
What's it to you,
porcupine-head!?

-April
That stupid clock
doesn't matter, okay!?

-April
She did it! And she should
die for it! Die!

-Judge
W-w-whoa! Let's not get
ahead of ourselves.

-Judge
T-this is a court of law,
and the witness will
remain calm!

-April
Hrrrgh... hrrrh...
Hrrr... heh. Oh?

-April
Oh! Oh? Oh hoh ho!
S-silly me!
*grunt*

-April
Did I, um, like... lose it?

-April
I guess I did. Tee hee! *wink*

-Phoenix
(S-scary...)

-Judge
Miss May, let me ask.

-Judge
Tell me, how did you know
the weapon was a clock?

-April
...

-Judge
Hmm... oh dear.

-Judge
Does the defense have an
opinion on this... behavior?

-Phoenix
(Okay, this is it!)

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.
Allow me to explain how
I see the truth of the matter.

-Phoenix
Miss April May, you knew the
weapon was a clock because...

***You held it******************************
*
* -Phoenix
* (This is familiar territory.
* I'll just use the same
* approach as with Larry.)
*
* -Phoenix
* Miss May held that very
* clock in her hands!
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright!
* When was this!?
*
* -Phoenix
* When she used it to strike
* the victim! When else?
*
* -Judge
* Order! Order!
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright! What is
* the meaning of this!?
*
* -Phoenix
* April May, you killed
* Mia Fey, I say!
*
* -Phoenix
* And when you struck, the
* force of the impact
* made "The Thinker" ring!
*
* -Phoenix
* That's when you heard it!
*
* -Edgeworth
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Edgeworth
* ...
*
* -Edgeworth
* Tsk tsk.
*
* -Edgeworth
* You truly are a work
* of art, Mr. Phoenix Wright.
*
* -Phoenix
* W-what's that supposed
* to mean!?
*
* -Edgeworth
* It was you who just proved
* that "The Thinker" was
* empty!
*
* -Phoenix
* Oh...
* (Urk! Of course it
* wouldn't ring!)
*
* -Edgeworth
* What's more, the witness
* has a rock-solid alibi.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Miss May?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Perhaps you could explain
* to the poor, misguided
* Mr. Wright?
*
* -Edgeworth
* You were in the hotel
* at the time of the murder.
*
* -Phoenix
* (S-she can't prove it!
* She did it!)
*
* -April
* It would be MY pleasure!
*
* -Phoenix
* N-no way!
*
* -April
* Yes way, Mr. Lawyer.
*
* -April
* Tee hee? Didn't the murder
* take place at 9:00 at night?
*
* -April
* Gee, that's the exact time
* I ordered some room service
* from the hotel bellboy!
*
* -Edgeworth
* Incidentally, the bellboy
* corroborates the witness's
* story.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Ergo, she was not at the
* crime scene! Rock solid!
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright! You've just made
* a serious accusation to a
* perfectly innocent woman!
*
* -Phoenix
* S-sorry, Your Honor.
* (That... didn't go so well.)
*
* -Phoenix
* (But, if that's the case...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Then how did she know
* "The Thinker" was a clock!?)
*
* -Phoenix
* (...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Wait!)
*
* -Phoenix
* Your Honor, I figured it out!
*
* -Phoenix
* There is one other way
* Miss April May could have
* known it was a clock!
*
* -Phoenix
* One way alone!
* And I have proof!
*
* -Judge
* Well...
* proof, you say?
*
* -Judge
* Then, the court will
* examine your proof,
* Mr. Wright.
*
* -Judge
* How did the witness know
* "The Thinker" was a clock?
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***You had heard about it*******************
*
* -Phoenix
* The witness had never
* held the clock in her hand!
*
* -Phoenix
* However, she had heard
* that it was a clock!
*
* -Judge
* She "heard"...?
*
* -Phoenix
* That is correct, Your Honor.
*
* -Phoenix
* There is no other way

* "The Thinker" was a clock!

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
Have a look at this.

-April
Ah! Oooh!
Th-that!? Eh heh...

-Phoenix
I found this in
Miss May's room.

-Judge
Mr. Wright! Please explain
to the court what this is!

-Phoenix
Miss April May?

-Phoenix
You were tapping the victim,
Ms. Mia Fey's phone, were
you not?

-April
Oooh. Oooooh!

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
Your Honor,
This is irrelevant!

-Judge
I'm not entirely sure that
it is. Objection overruled.

-Judge
It troubles me that our
witness was in possession
of a wiretap.

-Edgeworth
This is outrageous! Does the
defense truly claim that the
witness was tapping her phone?

-Phoenix
Absolutely!

-Edgeworth
Even if that was the case,
(which it's not) you still
have to prove one thing!

-Edgeworth
Did the victim ever say that
the weapon was a clock on
the phone?

-Edgeworth
Can you prove that?
I THINK NOT!

-Phoenix
Oh yeah? I THINK I CAN!
It's simple!

-Edgeworth
WHAAAAT!?

-Phoenix
Here's my proof.

-Phoenix
The proof that the victim
said, on the phone, that the
weapon was a clock is...

***Present something wrong******************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
I present the defendant's
cell phone.

-Judge
Yes, we've seen that.

-Phoenix
Listen once more to the
conversation between the
defendant and the victim.

-Cellular
*beep*

...

-Maya
[Mia! What's up? You haven't
called in a while.]

-Mia
[Well, actually there's
something I want you to
hold on to for me.]

-Maya
[Again?
What's it this time?]

-Mia
[It's... a clock.]

-Mia
[It's made to look like
that statue, "The Thinker."
And it tells you the time!]

...

-Phoenix
Miss April May!

-Phoenix
You used a wiretap to
listen to this conversation!

-Phoenix
That's how you knew
"The Thinker" was a clock!

-Phoenix
Am I wrong!?

-April
I... I...

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
Your Honor, this
is ridiculous!

-Phoenix
Your Honor, look at the
witness's face? Does
she seem amused to you!?

-Phoenix
The defense demands
an answer.

-April
La... laaa... lrrrrgf!

-Judge
Witness, answer the question.
Did you tap her phone?

-April
...

-Judge
Miss May!

-April
Shut up, all of you!
What gives you the right
to talk to ME like that!

-April
You... you LAWYER!

......

-April
I-it's no fair!
All of you g-ganging
up on me like that...

-April
Oh, so I'm the bad girl,
is that it? Is that it!?

-April
Uh... uh... uwaaaaaaah!

-Phoenix
(That did it! The court's seen
the real Miss April May now!)

-Phoenix
(Now to deal the final blow!)

***You did it, didn't you*******************

* -Phoenix
* Miss May!
*
* -April
* What is it you little shrimp!
* Talk to me in that tone of

***Why the wiretap?*************************

* Why did you tap her phone?

* Do I have to?
*
* -April
* Isn't this a murder trial?

*
* -Phoenix
* (Gah! She's saying exactly

*
* -Phoenix
* Miss May.
*
* -Phoenix
* You were tapping the
* victim's phone!
*
* -Phoenix
* I hardly call that
* "irrelevant"!
*
* -Judge
* While this court does not
* condone the defense's tone
* of speech, he has a point.
*
* -Judge
* Well, Miss May?
* Do you have an explanation

*
* -Judge
* Can you prove you had nothing

-Phoenix
You can't be serious!
No way!

-April
Way, I say! Way!
Oh, and I assure you
I'm serious, Mr. Lawyer!

-April
Hmph!

-April
Okay? So, the killing happened
around 9:00 at night?

-April
Why, that's just when I was
getting room service from
that sweet bellboy...

-Phoenix
R-room service!?

-April
Ice coffee, I believe it was?

-April
Ice coffee? You know?
Like normal coffee, but COLD.

-April
If you don't drink it quick,
the ice melts and then you
have... regular cold coffee.

-Phoenix
I-ice coffee...!?

-April
Think I'm making this up?
Ask the bellboy! *wink*

-Edgeworth
Ergo, the witness was not
on the scene at the time
of the murder!

-Phoenix
!

-Judge
So, where does
that leave us...?

-Edgeworth
It is my great displeasure
to inform you...

-Edgeworth
That the witness appears to
have been tapping the victim's
telephone.

-Edgeworth
However! That is a separate
crime, with no bearing on
the current case whatsoever!

-Edgeworth
Her testimony stands! She saw
the defendant, Maya Fey,
commit murder!

-Phoenix
(No! They're going to
let her just walk away!)

-Phoenix
(There's no way I can win
this unless I tie Miss May
to the murder somehow...)

Well, does the defense
have anything to say?

-Phoenix
Um, well...
(Come on, think of something!)

***Call the bellboy as a witness************

* -Phoenix
* The defense would like to
* call the hotel bellboy as

*
* -April
* I think you've sunken

*
* -Edgeworth
* I object to calling

*
* -Phoenix
* ...!
*
* -Edgeworth
* However...
*
* -Edgeworth
* If you agree to one condition,
* I'll consent to calling this

*
* -Phoenix
* Condition...?
*
* -Edgeworth
* If Miss April May's alibi is
* not called into question after
* you examine the bellboy...
*
* -Edgeworth
* Then you will recognize that
* Miss April May was not the
* killer, thus she is innocent!
*
* -Edgeworth
* Therefore you must accept
* the verdict of "guilty"
* for Ms. Maya Fey!
*
* -Edgeworth
* That is my condition.
*
* -Phoenix
* (What...!?)
*
* -Phoenix
* (I'd better find something

Yes, sir.

WITNESS TESTIMONY

   I make beds.

   -Bellboy
   I even deliver room
   service, sir.

   -Bellboy
   I checked Miss May in
   personally.

   -Phoenix
   Are you always
   so... so prim?

   -Judge
   Mr. Wright.

   -Judge
   You will refrain from asking
   frivolous questions...

(2)
-Bellboy
I believe I received a call
after 8:00 in the evening
from our guest, Miss May.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you sure it was
   Miss May on the phone?

   -Bellboy
   Absolutely, sir.

   -Phoenix
   H-how can you be so certain!?

   -Bellboy
   I checked Miss May in
   personally, sir.

   -Bellboy
   Not only did I see her in
   all her stunning radiance,
   but I also heard her voice.

   -Bellboy
   And then I saw THEM,
   and I...

   -Bellboy
   Ahem. Er... ahem!

   -Bellboy
   The point being, I remembered
   her quite well, sir.

   -Judge
   Yes, what then?

(3)
-Bellboy
She asked for an ice coffee
to be brought to her at
9:00, on the dot, sir.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   9:00 "on the dot,"
   you say?

   -Bellboy
   Yes. I confirmed that
   detail several times.

   -Bellboy
   She was watching a program
   on the TV, and wished to
   drink after she finished, sir.

   -Phoenix
   (9:00... the time
   of the murder!)

(4)
-Bellboy
I brought it to her at
precisely the requested
time, of course.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "Precisely" 9:00, then?

   -Bellboy
   Precisely, exactly, and
   most definitely, sir,
   9:00 PM.

   -Phoenix
   How can you be so sure!?

   -Bellboy
   Miss May was quite
   insistent that it
   be brought then.

   -Bellboy
   "Oh, bellboy? Tee hee!
   I'd like, like, ice coffee
   at exactly 9:00!"

   -Bellboy
   Something like that, sir.

   -Bellboy
   Therefore, I knocked on
   her door at the crack
   of 9:00, sir.

   -Phoenix
   (Why would she be so
   particular about the time?)

(5)
-Bellboy
And I delivered the ice
coffee to our guest Miss
May, herself.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   You are sure it was
   Miss April May herself?

   -Bellboy
   Ab-SO-lutely, sir.

   -Phoenix
   "Ab-SO-lutely"...?

   -Bellboy
   Yes, sir. As n, "so very
   absolutely," sir. It's an
   endearing mannerism of mine.

   -Phoenix
   How come you're
   so very certain!?

   -Bellboy
   Well, when I brought
   the room service, sir...

   -Bellboy
   S-she... the guest, sir,
   favored me w-with a, um,
   an "embrasser," sir.

   -Phoenix
   "Embrasser"!? Is that
   French for "embrace"?

   -Bellboy
   It's French for "kiss," sir.
   But not a french kiss, sir!
   More of a peck on the cheek.

   -Phoenix
   Wh-why would she
   have done that...?

   -Bellboy
   I believe, perhaps, she
   was momentarily swayed by
   my prim demeanor, sir.

   -Bellboy
   It was a moment I shall
   never, ever forget, sir.

   -Phoenix
   (Sounds pretty fishy to me...)

   -Phoenix
   (I think our Miss May was up
   to something and wanted the
   bellboy to remember her!)

-Phoenix
(This bellboy wouldn't
have any reason to lie...)

-Phoenix
(But I have to find
something to use in
his testimony!)

-Phoenix
(One more time. I'll press him
until he spills the beans...
or his tea!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AFTER PRESSING EVERY DETAIL

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
It's no good!
(There's nothing there!)

-Phoenix
(Is... is that it!?)

-Edgeworth
Tsk tsk.

-Edgeworth
Finally, you understand.

-Edgeworth
This bellboy has absolutely
no reason to lie!

-Edgeworth
Now...

-Edgeworth
If you have any decency, you
will end this rather tedious
cross-examination here!

-Judge
Hmm. It was a bit tedious.

-Judge
The witness may leave
the stand.

-Phoenix
(I can't let this
happen... can I?)

One last question... let me

*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
Your Honor, I must object.

-Edgeworth
This charade of justice
has gone on long enough!

-Judge
Now, now, Mr. Edgeworth.

-Judge
Alright Mr. Wright.
I'll give you one more
question, that's all.

-Phoenix
(Okay.)

-Phoenix
(This is really it, now.
This is my last chance!)

-Phoenix
(What do I ask him about...!?)

***Check-in*********************************
*
* -Phoenix
* T-tell me about
* check-in!
*
* -Phoenix
* Tell me about when you
* checked-in Miss May.
*
* -Bellboy
* Oh, alright.
* Very well, sir.
*
* -Bellboy
* My first thought was
* that she was a beautiful,
* beautiful person.
*
* -Bellboy
* She's just my type of girl,
* so it was a disappointment,
* really.
*
* -Phoenix
* I see...
*
* -Phoenix
* ?
*
* -Phoenix
* Excuse me... what exactly
* was a "disappointment"?
*
* -Bellboy
* Well, I am not without charm,

* chance with her lover there.
*
* -Phoenix
* (...!)
*
* -Phoenix
* (What did he say!?)
*
* -Phoenix
* What did you say!?
*
* -Bellboy
* Ah! Oh... er... rather, quite!

* -Bellboy
* At exactly 9:00,
* I delivered room service

*
* -Bellboy
* The guest had requested

*
* -Phoenix
* I see...
*
* -Phoenix
* ...?
*
* -Phoenix
* E-eighteen dollars?
* Doesn't that seem a bit

* Y-yes, well, ice coffee

* bed making? A new low!
*
* -Judge
* Now, now, Mr. Edgeworth.
*
* -Judge
* The witness will answer
* the defense's question.
*
* -Bellboy
* Yes, well, it was quite like
* any other day's bed making.
*
* -Bellboy
* I changed the sheets, the
* pillowcases, and then I
* proceeded to make the bed.
*
* -Bellboy
* I had to bring pillows for

I object! That was...
objectionable!

-Judge
Objection overruled.
The witness will answer
the question.

-Bellboy
Er... yes, I see.

-Phoenix
Why did you not mention
this in your testimony!?

-Bellboy
W-well, sir, you er...
you didn't ask!

-Phoenix
(Nice try!)

-Phoenix
That's the sort of thing
you're normally supposed
to mention!

-Bellboy
Ah, yes, quite.
Indeed...

-Bellboy
It was the, er, good
barrister there,
Mr. Edgeworth, who...

-Phoenix
!

-Bellboy
He asked me not to mention
it if I wasn't specifically
asked, sir.

-Edgeworth
Oof!

-Edgeworth
Y-you fool!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
I've done it... I've won!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
Miss April May checked into
a twin room... with a man.

-Phoenix
Correct?

-Bellboy
Yes, sir.

-Phoenix
Then, when you brought
them room service,

-Phoenix
you didn't see that
man in the room...?

-Bellboy
That's right, sir.

-Judge
Hmm...

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
We have just learned of
another person involved who
may have been the murderer!

-Phoenix
In this new light, I hold
that it's impossible to judge
the defendant.

-Phoenix
You agree, Mr. Edgeworth?

-Edgeworth
Who! Who is this
"other person"!

-Phoenix
Simple, it was...

***Miss April May***************************
*
* -Phoenix

* Miss April May!

* Your Honor, Mr. Wright...
*
* -Edgeworth
* It was the bellboy who

********************************************

-Phoenix
The man who checked in
with Miss May!

-Edgeworth
Oof!

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
As has been previously
revealed, Miss April May was
tapping the victim's phone.

-Phoenix
Yet Miss May herself has
an alibi at the time of
the murder.

-Phoenix
However, that does not
clear the man that was
with her!

-Phoenix
The bellboy saw no one
else in the room at the
time of the murder!!!

-Edgeworth
M-my, what a convenient
little setup... but it's
too late...

-Phoenix
"Too late"?

-Phoenix
I suppose you'd like it
if it was too late,
wouldn't you...

-Phoenix
After all, it was you who
hid the presence of the
other man from this court!

-Edgeworth
Oof!

-Edgeworth
Upstart... amateur...!

-Edgeworth
T-these accusations are...
ludicrous!

-Judge
Enough!

-Judge
The court acknowledges the
defense's argument.

-Judge
I expect the prosecution
and defense to look into
this matter fully!

-Judge
Am I understood?

-Edgeworth
Yes... *gasp*
Yes, Your Honor.

-Judge
That is all today for the
trial of Maya Fey.

-Judge
Court is adjourned!

District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 1

-Maya
Mr. Wright!

-Maya
You were amazing in there!

-Phoenix
R-really?

-Maya
I think I might be
your newest fan!

-Phoenix
Oh, I was just "doing
my job" you know... heh heh.

-Maya
Then again, that other
attorney was pretty
cool, too...

-Phoenix
Huh?

-Maya
That face of his! With his
eyes wide, and trembling lips!

-Maya
It sent shivers
up my spine!

-Phoenix
Hmm... if you say so.

-Maya
So, what happens with me?

-Maya
Do I get to go home now?

-Phoenix
Well, no.

-Phoenix
I don't think so.
Not yet.

-Maya
Oh... I see.

-Phoenix
But I got a great lead
in today's trial!

-Maya
A "lead"?

-Phoenix
That man with Miss May!
He's the key!

-Maya
Oh! I get it.

-Maya
What happened to Miss May
after that, anyway?

-Phoenix
I heard they arrested her.
I guess she's learning her
charms won't work everywhere.

-Phoenix
She's probably at the
detention center now. I may
have to go down there later.

-Phoenix
Anyway.

-Phoenix
This case is far from closed.

-Maya
Yes sir!

-Phoenix
I'm going to find out
more about this man.

-Maya
Do you think he was
the one who...?

-Phoenix
Maybe so.

-Maya
Sis...

-Phoenix
Don't worry, I'll find
him by tomorrow. I promise.

-Maya
I'm counting on you!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
I asked for a full record of
April May's testimony.

-Phoenix
I thought it might come in
handy during the trial
tomorrow.

-Phoenix
But now that I have it,
I'm not so sure.

-Phoenix
Most of her testimony
was all lies...

-Phoenix
In fact, there's only
one part that got left
on the record.

May Testimony added
to the Court Record.

-Phoenix
I don't know how much
good this will do me
at all, now.

-Phoenix
Anyway, time to hit
the pavement and do
some investigating!

-Phoenix
Maya doesn't belong in that
detention center, and it's
up to me to get her free!

Not! You stinking lawyer!

Have you come to laugh?
Yes, laugh at the fallen

No, not really, there's

-April
Unfortunately, there is

Haven't you done enough

Quite the performance today,

Oh, um, thanks.

-Phoenix
Sorry for putting you
on the spot like that.

-Bellboy
No, no, not at all, sir!

-Bellboy
Your efforts today can only
help the Gatewater's "rep,"
as they say.

-Phoenix
Huh? "Rep"?

-Bellboy
Yes! Our reputation will
swell as the hotel where the
murderer used a wiretap!

-Bellboy
We can charge a premium for
the room, of course. It will
be great for business, sir!

-Phoenix
Whoa, whoa! Miss May hasn't
been charged with murder.

-Bellboy
I, too, will become famous!

-Bellboy
"The Bellboy who brought the
murderer ice coffee"...!

-April
YOU AGAIN!?
Can't you take a hint
and stay gone?

-Phoenix
Hey, the only reason I'm
back here is because YOU
won't talk to me!

-April
Oh, so it's MY fault now?

-April
You don't just have spiky
hair, you also have a
spiky heart.

(That does it. When this case

Ah hah! You again.

-Phoenix
Um, hello, Mr. Grossberg.

-Grossberg
Well, well.

-Grossberg
You were quite the
thing, my boy.

-Phoenix
Excuse me...?

-Grossberg
The trial! The trial!

-Phoenix
(He was there...?)

-Grossberg
Reminded me of myself

I apologize.

?

I... It was all a bit

* -Grossberg
* A right, Mr. Wright?
*
* -Grossberg
* No, no, I'm sorry. It's just,

* The other day I'm sure there

* Anyway, where did it go?

Welcome! Please furnish

Your name!
What's your name?

I was just inquirably asking

Uh... Wright. Phoenix Wright.

-White
Mr. Wright, is it?
Right, I see...

Splendiferous.

Perhaps I have intimidated

(What is this guy's problem!)

-White
I'm Redd White, CEO of
Bluecorp. You know,
Corporate Expansion Official?

-White
My business dealings
bring me into contact with
the elite of the elite.

White
So I'm afraid I am not
used to conversing with the
wordily-challenged.

-Phoenix
(What a fruitcake!)

-White
Hmmm, let me guess...

-White
You are an attorney fresh out
of law school, are you not?

-White 
That's the only explanation
for why you would come to
meet me like this!

-Phoenix
(What does he mean by that?)

-White
No matter.

So, what business does a
"mighty" lawyer have with
a man such as myself?

meter is off the scale!)

* A statue of a man holding

* The "Bluecorp" sign certainly

* The model for the man is,
* of course, Mr. White.

* END IF TOLD TO LEAVE

* -White
* Truly a work of art! But,

* About this wiretap...
*
* -White
* Ah, the one that Miss May
* used, right?
*
* -White
* Bad girl. Bad, bad girl.
*
* -Phoenix
* She testified that she placed
* the wiretap at your request.
*
* -White
* How pathetic. I guess she's
* trying to pass the buck.
*
* -White
* Bad, bad girl.
*
* -White
* Sorry I can't help you.

***Talk about "Miss May"********************
*
* -Phoenix
* Miss May is an employee of
* Bluecorp, is she not?
*
* -White
* Correct.
* She was my secretariat.
*
* -White
* What a shock it was to
* hear what she has done!
*
* -Phoenix
* "What she has done"...
* You mean the wiretap?
*
* -White
* Indeed! She is paid to
* answer phones. Tapping them
* is NOT in her job description.
*
* -White
* She does gather information
* for us as part of her duties.
*
* -White
* But, I assure you, we do
* not condone illegal methods!
*
* -White
* It is ineffable that
* she would do this.

* into a scapegoat...)

***Talk about "Night of the murder"*********
*
* -Phoenix
* On the night of the murder
* were you in April May's
* hotel room?
*
* -White
* Who can say? I seldom pay
* attention to mundane details
* such as time and place.
*
* -White
* My motto is:
* "Don't worry, be happy!"
*
* -Phoenix
* Still, Mr. White...
*
* -Phoenix
* The hotel bellboy has stated
* on the record that he does
* remember you very clearly.
*
* -White
* ...
*
* -White
* No matter! The bellboy
* can say what he pleases.
* I still won't talk to you.
*
* -White
* If you want me to speak,
* put me on the witness stand!
*
* -White
* Although I doubt you'd be
* capable of doing that.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Hmm. He raises a good
* question, actually...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Why didn't prosecution
* call him as a witness?)
*
* -Phoenix
* (He should have "seen" the
* same thing as April May!)
*
* -White
* Oh hoh hoh.
*
* -White
* The police... the courts...
*
* -White
* To me they are mere toys.
* Playthings for my amusement!

***Talk about "Bluecorp"********************
*
* -Phoenix
* What kind of company
* is Bluecorp, anyway?
*
* -White
* Ah, excellent question!
*
* -White
* We buy and sell various
* kinds of information.
*
* -White
* We are the company of the
* future! You might say,
* we ARE the future!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Sell... information?)
*
* -White
* In just 10 years, I've built
* this business up into the
* grand office you see now.
*
* -White
* Ah, in case you were
* wondering, Bluecorp was
* named after the color "blue"!
*
* -White
* I, Redd White of Bluecorp,
* as founder and CEO, named
* it so!
*
* -White
* And why, you ask? Because I
* like the color blue of course!
*
* -White
* Fantabulistic, is it not?

***Talk about "That painting"***************
*
* -Phoenix
* Uh... there's something

* -White
* Yes? What might that be?

* That big painting on
* the wall over there...
*
* ***It's gorgeous****************************
* *

* * -Phoenix
* * Just yesterday, actually.
* *
* * -White
* * Your point being...?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * My point is simple.
* * Er, rather, my question

*
* -White
* I ask again. Who are you?
*
* -Phoenix
* Umm... huh? A lawyer?
*
* -White
* No, my feeble friend.
* A "mere" lawyer.
*
* -White
* Worth nothing.
* Zilch. Zippo. Nada!

*
* -White
* Perhaps then he will

*
* -White
* Perhaps he will explain

* He owns judges, attorneys,
* prosecutors, police... and
* politicians.
*
* -Phoenix
* What!?
*
* -Grossberg
* They are bound, unable
* to do harm to themselves,
* and therefore, to him.
*
* -Grossberg
* Don't look at me like that.
* What you see is nothing more
* than the weight of many years.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The DL6 Incident"************
*
* -Phoenix
* What is the "DL-6 Incident"?
*
* -Grossberg
* "DL-6" is nothing more than
* the sorting code the police
* gave the case.
*
* -Grossberg
* It was 15 years ago now...
*
* -Grossberg
* I received a request from
* a medium. A spirit medium.
*
* -Phoenix
* (A medium...?)
*
* -Grossberg
* Her name was Misty Fey.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Fey!)
*
* -Grossberg
* Indeed.
* She was Mia's mother.
*
* -Grossberg
* She had been investigating
* a murder at the bequest of
* the police.
*
* -Grossberg
* And... she failed.
*
* -Grossberg
* As a result, the police
* called her a fraud.
*
* -Phoenix
* (This is what Maya was
* talking about the other day!)
*
* -Grossberg
* I did all I could for her,
* and in the end, cleared her
* of wrongdoing.
*
* -Grossberg
* That murder case, however
* remains unsolved to this day.
*
* -Grossberg
* That case, is the
* DL-6 Incident.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Reason for blackmail"********
*
* -Phoenix
* But why were you blackmailed
* over this, Mr. Grossberg?
*
* -Grossberg
* The DL-6 Incident was top-
* secret at the time.
*
* -Grossberg
* It made sense. The police
* didn't want people to know
* they were using a medium!
*
* -Grossberg
* They couldn't let
* people know.
*
* -Grossberg
* But one person found out.
*
* -Grossberg
* I... I told him.
*
* -Phoenix
* You told White?
*
* -Grossberg
* He offered me riches...
* It is an embarrassment
* to me now.
*
* -Grossberg
* Because I talked, the police
* were mocked far and wide.
*
* -Grossberg
* In secret, they began looking
* for the one who sold them out.
*
* -Grossberg
* Of course White heard about
* it, and he came to me.
*
* -Grossberg
* Only this time, the offer
* was blackmail.
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* I see.
*
* -Grossberg
* ...
*
* -Grossberg
* White controls the law of
* this country as he sees fit.
*
* -Grossberg
* Yet if you would still
* challenge him...
*
* -Grossberg
* Have a close look at
* Mia's office.
*
* -Phoenix
* Mia's office...?
*
* -Grossberg
* She followed his every
* move for years.
*
* -Grossberg
* She may have recorded
* something of what she found.
*

MOVE TO: Fey & Co. Law Offices

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
It's funny, looking at
this room, it seems...
so normal.

-Phoenix
Hard to imagine a murder took
place here.

-Phoenix
Mr. Grossberg said there
would be clues...

-Phoenix
Maybe I should have
another look.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Examine bookcase*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* All the cases the chief
* ever worked on are filed
* here.
*
* -Phoenix
* They're in alphabetical order.
* Let's take a look...
*
* -Phoenix
* Which file should
* I look at...?
*
* ***File "A-I"*******************************
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Let's see if there's
* * "A" record in this file
* * that catches my "I."
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * "A"... "B"... "F"!
* * "Misty Fey."
* * That's Mia and Maya's mother.
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Hmmm... Should I take a look?
* *
* * ***Read it**********************************
* * *
* * * -Mia
* * * "'I have tarnished the Fey
* * * name.' Leaving only these
* * * words, my mother vanished."
* * *
* * * -Mia
* * * "I was determined to find the
* * * ones who had made my mother
* * * blame herself in this way."
* * *
* * * -Mia
* * * "Using the E.S.P. that
* * * runs in my family, I held
* * * an audience with the dead."
* * *
* * * -Mia
* * * "Finally, the names of
* * * two men surfaced."
* * *
* * * -Mia
* * * "One was Marvin Grossberg,
* * * a lawyer who sold my mother's
* * * information for riches."
* * *
* * * -Mia
* * * "The other was the man
* * * who sold that information
* * * to the press."
* * *
* * * -Mia
* * * "This parasite, who makes
* * * his fortune on threats and
* * * coercion..."
* * *
* * * -Mia
* * * "His name is..."
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * Hmm. The record stops there.
* * *
* * * -Phoenix

* * * So Mia knew Grossberg...

* * ********************************************

* * * I don't think it has

* * * leave it alone for now.

* * Nothing much in here.

* *
* * ***Skim*************************************
* * *

* * * *sigh*
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * Well, no harm in flipping
* * * through a bit, I guess...
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * The biggest part's here
* * * at the end in "S"...
* * * "Suicide"? Eww...
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * She has a collection of
* * * suicide reports. There's
* * * politicians... policemen...
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * ...
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * ...!
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * There's writing on most
* * * of these in pencil.
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * "White"...?
* * * This is Mia's handwriting.
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * Wait, I get it!
* * * Mia thought he was involved
* * * in these "suicides"!
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * White drove them all to...
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * ...
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * I can use these
* * * newspaper clippings.
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * Hmm... let's find the

* * *
* * * Newspaper Clipping added
* * * to the Court Record.
* * *
* * ********************************************

Well, aren't you persistent.

Sorry, but there's something

-White
Mr. Lawyer,

-White
I really hate having to
repeat myself...

-White
But it seems the message has
not yet penetrated your thick
skull... Stop bothering me!

-White
If you try my patience
further, I fear a nasty
accident may occur.

-White
Do I make myself clear?

-Phoenix
(Transparent...)

***Talk about "Miss May"********************

* Mr. White... see this?
*
* -Phoenix
* It's an article describing

*
* -White
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* He was embezzling secret

*
* -Phoenix
* Then, one day, word got

*
* -Phoenix
* The very next day he took

*

* -White
* Miss Mia...?

* She had a file filled with

*
* -Phoenix
* Every one of them was labeled

* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Then, when you revealed
* * it, he was driven to suicide!
* *
* * -White
* * Mr. Lawyer.
* *
* * -White
* * I know nothing of this.
* *
* * -White
* * And, even in the highly
* * unlikely event that I did

* *
* * -White

AFTER:
   1) Presenting Newspaper Clipping

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

September 8, 3:37 PM
Detention Center
Visitor's Room

-Phoenix
I can't believe it's only
been a day since the first
trial.

-Phoenix
My trial begins tomorrow.

-Phoenix
White's going to
set a trap for me.

-Phoenix
And the prosecution will
be in on it, of course.
Edgeworth, included.

-Phoenix
An attorney was assigned to
me by the state, yesterday.

-Phoenix
I refused.
I had an idea.

-Maya
...

-Maya
Wright!

-Maya
Mr. Wright!

-Phoenix
Oh, Maya!

-Phoenix
Great, they let you
out of detention.

-Maya
Just now, yes.
It's all thanks to you!

-Phoenix
Hah. Now I'm afraid we've
switched places.

-Maya
What? You mean, you...?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
I explained what had
happened to Maya.

-Phoenix
...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Maya
I don't believe it!

-Maya
How many people does that man
need to destroy before he's
satisfied!? My mother...

-Maya
My sister...

-Maya
And now you!

-Maya
This has gone too far!

Maya
Mr. Wright, please tell me,
is there anything I can do?

-Phoenix
Um... well...

***Defend me in court***********************
*
* -Phoenix
* Alright, you can be my
* defense lawyer tomorrow!
*
* -Maya
* Alright!
*
* -Phoenix
* Huh?
*
* -Maya
* Leave it to me! I am Mia's
* sister, after all! Lawyership
* runs in our blood!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Wasn't it E.S.P. that
* ran in your blood...?)
*
* -Maya
* I'd better run to the
* bookstore and pick up a copy
* of "Law for Rookies."
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Cheer me on in court*********************
*
* -Phoenix
* Well, you could cheer
* for me in court.
*
* -Maya
* Cheer for you?
* You mean... like a
* cheerleader?
*
* -Phoenix
* Huh? Um, yeah, like that.
*
* -Maya
* Alright!
* Leave it to me!
*
* -Phoenix
* Huh?
*
* -Maya
* I'd better go get a uniform
* and some pom-poms...!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Help me break out of here****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Right. Okay, listen up.
* I want you to help me break
* out of here!
*
* -Maya
* You mean... a jail break?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah. Tonight's our
* only chance!
*
* -Maya
* Alright!
*
* -Phoenix
* Huh?
*
* -Maya
* Oh, I'd better go get a
* hacksaw while the stores
* are still open.
*
* -Maya
* Oh, oh! And a rope ladder,
* and a getaway car!
* Can you drive?
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
W-wait. Wait wait wait.

-Maya
What what what?

-Phoenix
I'm kidding! It was a joke!

-Maya
No way!

-Phoenix
No really, I was kidding.
But thanks. It's good to know
you're on my side.

-Phoenix
(And there really isn't
anything you can do
for me anyway...)

-Maya
But... but I can't just sit
here and do nothing!

-Maya
I've got to give that
man a piece of my mind!

-Phoenix
(Just a piece...?)

-Phoenix
Okay.

-Phoenix
Then, come to the
court tomorrow.

-Maya
O-okay! I'll be there!

-Maya
I'll show them
a thing or two!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
It's the beginning of a new
century, yet with crime it's
the same old story.

-Phoenix
In fact, it's gotten worse.
Lengthy court proceedings
are no longer realistic.

-Phoenix
Beginning a few years ago,
a limit of three days was put
on initial court trials.

-Phoenix
Almost all finish in a day.
Most with a guilty verdict.

-Phoenix
I never thought I would
end up in the defendant's
chair myself.

-Phoenix
Tomorrow the true
culprit will appear
as a witness.

-Phoenix
This is it!
It's me or him!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

September 9, 9:52 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 1

-Maya
Well... I guess
this is it!

-Phoenix
Yeah.

-Phoenix
One way or another, this
case gets decided today.

-Maya
Aaa!
Ph-Phoenix! Look!

-Phoenix
(...!)

-Phoenix
(Prosecutor... Edgeworth.)

-Edgeworth
I received a call from the
public prosecutor's office
yesterday.

-Phoenix
?

-Edgeworth
He told me that whatever
Mr. White says today, it will
be the "absolute truth."

-Edgeworth
No matter how you try to
attack his testimony...

-Edgeworth
If I raise an objection,
I have it on good faith that
the judge will listen to me.

-Phoenix
(What, does White have the
judge in his pocket, too!?)

-Phoenix
So... you're saying I'm going
to be guilty. End of story?

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
I will do anything to get my
verdict, Mr. Wright. Anything.

-Maya
Why...
Why!?

-Maya
How can you torment an
innocent person like this!?

-Edgeworth
"Innocent"...?

-Edgeworth
How can we know that?

-Edgeworth
The guilty will always lie,
to avoid being found out.

-Edgeworth
There's no way to tell
who is guilty and who
is innocent!

-Edgeworth
All that I can hope to do
is get every defendant
declared "guilty"!

-Edgeworth
So I make that my policy.

-Phoenix
Edgeworth...

-Phoenix
You've changed.

-Maya
Hmm?

-Maya
Phoenix!
You know him!?

-Edgeworth
Don't expect any special
treatment, Phoenix Wright.

-Maya
Ph-Phoenix...?

-Phoenix
Well... court will be opening
for session soon.

-Maya
What? But wait!

-Maya
Your defense attorney isn't
even here yet! He's not...

-Phoenix
I'll be defending myself.

-Maya
Whaaaat!?

-Phoenix
Okay, let's do this.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

September 9, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 1

-Judge
The court is now in
session for the trial
of Mr. Phoenix Wright.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution is ready,
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
The defense is ready,
Your Honor.

-Judge
Mr. Wright...
Are you sure you're
up to doing this?

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.
I will be defending myself.

-Judge
Understood.

-Judge
Very well. Mr. Edgeworth, your
opening statement, please.

-Edgeworth
As the details of the event
are already quite clear to
the court,

-Edgeworth
today we will hear the
testimony of another witness
to the defendant's crime.

-Judge
I see.

-Judge
The prosecution may call
its witness.

-Phoenix
(That went far too smoothly!)

-Phoenix
(Why didn't the judge ask
Edgeworth why his witness
didn't testify before!?)

-Phoenix
(It's like... it's like
he already knows why!)

-Phoenix
(Hmm. If anyone's going to
raise an objection about
this, I suppose it's me...)

***Objection********************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Mr. Edgeworth, you owe an
* explanation to the court!
*
* -Phoenix
* Why didn't this witness
* testify in the trial against
* Ms. Maya Fey!?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Hmph.
*
* -Edgeworth
* I'm ever so sorry!
*
* -Edgeworth
* Mr. White is a busy man,
* and besides...
*
* -Edgeworth
* at the time, I thought that
* Ms. May's opinion was all
* that would be needed.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Again, my sincerest
* apologies to the court.
*
* -Judge
* Excellent, Mr. Edgeworth.
* I appreciate your demeanor.
*
* -Edgeworth
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* (Great. He gets to show
* off and I get nowhere.)
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Let it go********************************
*
* -Phoenix
* (Forget it.
* I smell a trap.)
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Edgeworth
I would like to call
Mr. Redd White to the stand!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
Please state your full name.

-White
You wish to know the
title of my personage?

-Edgeworth
Er... your name?

-White
Yes! That is what I said!

-White
Oh dear, do my
locutions confuse?

-Edgeworth
Name!

-Phoenix
(These two are great
together...)

-White
My name is Redd White.
But my friends call me
Blanco Nino.

-White
I am the CEO, or to use a more
common term, the President,
of Bluecorp.

-Edgeworth
Did you know the victim,
Ms. Mia Fey?

-White
That would be a negatory!
No, I did not.

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
You were at the Gatewater
Hotel the night of the
murder?

-White
Correct.

-Edgeworth
And you witnessed the
murder from there?

-White
Ahem. Why tell you what
you already know?

-Judge
Very well, Mr. White. You
may begin your testimony.

-Phoenix
(If I can't rip this guy's
testimony apart, I'm
done for.)

-Phoenix
(Why do I always feel like
it's the end of the world and
I'm the last man standing?)

-White
Ho hoh hoh.

-White
I hope you have made your
peace with God, Mr. Lawyer!

-Phoenix
...!

-Maya
Let him have it, Phoenix!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Witness's Account --

(1)
-White
Let's see, it was about
9:00, I believe.

(2)
-White
I was quietly perusifying...
er, that's "reading" to you,
some papers by the window.

(3)
-White
Then I heard a bedlam
coming from outside!

(4)
-White
Surprised, I turned to
look at the building
across the way.

(5)
-White
It was then I saw him:
a spiky-haired man attacking
a woman with long hair!

(6)
-White
Needless to say that man was
none other than you,
Mr. Lawyer!

(7)
-White
I called Miss May over
at once. She, too, was
flabbergasted of course.

(8)
-White
The victim, she... she ran
away, but you gave chase!

(9)
-White
Finally there was a
terrible impaction!
Then it was all over...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
If things occurred as you
testify, then I'm afraid the
defendant is guilty.

-Judge
Very well, defendant... er,
I mean, Mr. Wright.

-Judge
Your cross-examination...

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Witness's Account --

(1)
-White
Let's see, it was about
9:00, I believe.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   How do you know what time
   it was?

   -White
   Because I am always
   abso-posi-lutely perfect,
   you know?

   -Phoenix
   No no no, you're not getting
   away with that!

   -White
   You are so mistrusting,
   Mr. Lawyer!

   -White
   So... what was the proper
   term for "secretary" again...?

   -White
   Anyway, Miss May ordered
   room service for 9:00.

   -White
   It happened soon after the
   room service arrived.

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm. That's what Miss May
   said, too.)

   ***Press further****************************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * True, the bellboy who brought
   * the coffee saw Miss May.
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * But he testified that he
   * did not see you at the time!
   *
   * -White
   * Ahem. This is your concern?
   *
   * -White
   * Silly Lawyer! Miss May
   * received the coffee outside
   * the room!
   *
   * -White
   * Of course he could not see me.
   * He would need X-ray vision to
   * pull off something like that!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (Hmm...)
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Tell us, what were you
   * doing at the time?
   *
   ********************************************

   ***Hold back********************************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (I don't see anything to gain
   * by attacking him on this
   * point any further.)
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Okay, what were you
   * doing at the time?
   *
   ********************************************

(2)
-White
I was quietly perusifying...
er, that's "reading" to you,
some papers by the window.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   By window, you mean the one
   directly across from the
   Fey & Co. Law Office?
   
   -White
   Correct! That is the only
   window, you see.

   -Phoenix
   And there you were
   reading... papers?

   -White
   Correct!

   -White
   The Gatewater is a business-
   man's hotel, and I am a busy
   man who had business to do!

(3)
-White
Then I heard a bedlam
coming from outside!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   A "bedlam"?

   -White
   It must have been when
   you attacked, I assume.

   -Edgeworth
   We see. Continue.

(4)
-White
Surprised, I turned to
look at the building
across the way.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So you were reading your
   papers until you heard
   that sound?

   -White
   But of course. I am
   no snoop, peeping out of
   windows at night.

   -Phoenix
   (No snoop? Yeah, right!
   You've made a career
   out of snooping!)

(5)
-White
It was then I saw him:
a spiky-haired man attacking
a woman with long hair!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   S-spiky-haired!?

(6)
-White
Needless to say that man was
none other than you,
Mr. Lawyer!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What you just said directly
   conflicts with Miss May's
   testimony!

   -Phoenix
   Miss May clearly stated that
   the assailant looked like
   a "girl"!

   -White
   I've always been proud
   of my eyesight, Mr. Lawyer.

   -Phoenix
   Just what is your eyesight?

   -White
   Counting both eyes... 40!

   -Phoenix
   40!? Don't add them together!

   -Judge
   I think the witness is trying
   to say his eyesight is good.

   -Phoenix
   (Hey, whose side is the
   judge on, anyway?)

   -Edgeworth
   And what did you do then?

(7)
-White
I called Miss May over
at once. She, too, was
flabbergasted of course.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What was Miss May doing
   at that time?

   -White
   She had just finished
   watching a soap opera on the
   TV, and was weeping openly.

   -Phoenix
   Did you know she had been
   tapping the Fey office phone?

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   Irrelevant! That has nothing
   to do with the case at hand.

   -White
   I care not. I will answer the
   lawyer's bold inquiry.

   -White
   Miss May was acting alone
   when she tapped the phone
   of this Fey woman.

   -Phoenix
   You'd make a good politician,
   Mr. White.

   -White
   Ho hoh! After all, I am
   "El Presidente."

   -Judge
   Please continue.

(8)
-White
The victim, she... she ran
away, but you gave chase!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Can you be a little more
   detailed about that?

   -Phoenix
   I think it's worth knowing
   exactly what happened.

   -White
   Of course! Comprende!
   I understand!

   -White
   The victim was attacked,
   by you, and ran to the left.

   -White
   You gave chase, and struck
   her down!

   -Edgeworth
   Are you sure?

   -White
   As you know, I am always
   abso-posi-lutely perfect!

   -Judge
   Perhaps you could change
   your testimony to reflect
   this new detail.

   CHANGE TO 8b

(8b)
-White
The victim ran to the left,
and you gave chase!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you sure about that?

   -White
   How many times must I say it?

   -White
   I am abso-posi-lutely perfect!
   End of story!

   -Phoenix
   (How many times must
   I hear that?)

   -Maya
   Psst! Phoenix!

   -Maya
   Doesn't something about
   that strike you as a
   little odd?

(9)
-White
Finally there was a
terrible impaction!
Then it was all over...

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Um... "impaction"?
   Don't you mean just "impact"?

   -White
   Ridiculosity! I think you need
   to brush up on your language
   skills!

   -Phoenix
   (On second thought, perhaps
   I'd better leave the whole
   language thing alone...)

-Phoenix
(Did Edgeworth "prep" this guy,
too, I wonder?)

-Phoenix
(Anyway, I'd better find
a weakness in there...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Wait right there!

-Phoenix
Mr. White, you've
dug your own grave!

-White
What is this!?

-Phoenix
You said the victim ran
to the "left."

-Phoenix
But that directly contradicts
Miss May's testimony!

-Phoenix
She clearly stated that the
victim ran "right"!

-White
...!

-White
Oh hoh hoh. It is simple.
You have misheard her.

-Phoenix
I think not.

-Phoenix
Look at the floor plans...

-Phoenix
The killer was here.

-Phoenix
And the victim, here.

-Phoenix
If the victim ran to the
left, as you claim she did...

-Phoenix
She would have been running
directly away from the door!

-Phoenix
She would have been running
into a dead end!

-Phoenix
Don't you find that odd?

-White
!

-White
Very strange...

-White
I did see her run to the
left... I did.

-Maya
Phoenix... look at his face.
I don't think he's lying
about this one.

-Phoenix
True.

-Phoenix
(Maybe he really did see
the victim run left...?)

-Phoenix
(So he did witness the
killing...?)

-Phoenix
(Wait a second!)

-Judge
Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor?

-Judge
Miss May says "right," and
Mr. White says "left."

-Judge
Can you explain this
contradiction to the court?

***Mr. White is right***********************
*
* -Phoenix
* As Mr. White testified,
* Mia ran to the left.
*
* -Judge
* But...
* But if that's the case...
*
* -Judge
* Why would she run in the
* opposite direction from
* the door?
*
* -Phoenix
* She did not. She was running
* towards the door, Your Honor.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Bwah!
* Now you're the one making
* a contradiction, Mr. Wright!
*
* -Phoenix
* Not at all.
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Miss May is right************************
*
* -Phoenix
* As Miss May has stated, Mia
* ran to the right after she
* was attacked.
*
* -White
* What is this?
* I am not fashioning
* fabrications, I assure you!
*
* -White
* That lady ran to the left!
* I am sure of it!
*
* -Phoenix
* Then there can be
* only one explanation.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Eh...? And that is?
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Both are right***************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Both witnesses are
* telling the truth.
* (For once...)
*
* -Edgeworth
* Hah! I doubt it!
*
* -Edgeworth
* Er, rather, that does not
* clear up the contradiction!
*
* -Phoenix
* There is one scenario that
* would explain their
* conflicting accounts.
*
* -Edgeworth
* What!?
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
Obviously, the witness was not
viewing the crime from the
hotel!

-Judge
Mr. Wright! What do you mean?

-Edgeworth
Yes, what do you mean,
he was not "viewing the crime
from the hotel"!?

-Edgeworth
If he was not in the hotel,
where could he have been!?

-Phoenix
In the law offices of
Fey & Co., of course!

-Phoenix
More specifically, he
was standing here!

-Phoenix
(Show the court where
Mr. White was standing!)

***Present location of victim***************
*
* -Phoenix
* *TAKE THAT!*
*
* -Phoenix
* That's where he was!
*
* -Edgeworth
* M-Mr. Wright!
* We are not fools!
*
* -Edgeworth
* How could he have been
* exactly where the victim
* was standing!?
*
* -Phoenix
* (Oh... oh, right!)
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright!
* What is the meaning of this!?
*
* -Phoenix
* Sorry, Your Honor! Sorry!
* Let me try that again...
*
* RETURN TO FLOOR PLANS
*
********************************************

***Present anywhere*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* *TAKE THAT!*
*
* -Phoenix
* That's where he was!
*
* -Judge
* Hold it right there,
* Mr. Wright!
*
* -Judge
* If he was there during
* the very act of murder...
*
* -Judge
* That would make him
* an accomplice!
*
* -Edgeworth
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Edgeworth
* Impossible!
*
* -Edgeworth
* There was no one other than
* the criminal and victim in
* the room!
*
* -Edgeworth
* There is no evidence, no
* proof to the contrary! None!
*
* -Phoenix
* S-sorry! Er... let me
* try that again!
*
* RETURN TO FLOOR PLANS
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
This is where he was!

-Phoenix
Look!

-Phoenix
When the victim ran for
the door...

-Phoenix
If he was watching from this
point, to him it would appear
that she ran to the "left."

-Edgeworth
Please! This is no time for
jokes in ill taste!

-Edgeworth
That is where the
killer was standing!

-Judge
Order! I will have order!

-Judge
Anyone disturbing the order
of this courtroom will be
held in contempt!

-Judge
Mr. Wright!
What are you suggesting!?

-White
R-r-rapscallion!!!

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
The postulations of the
defense are a distortion
of the truth, Your Honor!

-Judge
Indeed.
They do seem a bit
far-fetched...

-White
...

-White
Ho hoh hoh!

-White
You provide us with so
much entertainment,
Mr. Lawyer!

-Phoenix
(What now!?
He's... laughing!?)

-White
The hilarity of the moment
made me remember something...

-White
It appears I have been
unclear, and for this,
I apologize.

-White
Mr. Your Honor...

-White
Might I be allowed to
testify once more?

-Judge
Very well, let's hear
your revised testimony.

-Phoenix
(Good luck. You can't fix
a broken testimony, buddy!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- She Ran to the "Left" --

(1)
-White
Miss May's testimony was
correct... as was mine!

(2)
-White
When you assaulted the girl,
she first ran to the left.

(3)
-White
And then you hit her,
savagely! That is what I saw.

(4)
-White
Next, with the last
of her strength, she
ran to the right.

(5)
-White
You chased her, and delivered
the final blow.

(6)
-White
That is what Miss May saw.

(7)
-White
You see?
You hit her twice!

-White
Don't you remember,
Mr. Lawyer?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...
That does seem to make sense.

-Judge
Will you be cross-examining
the witness's testimony?

-Phoenix
You bet I will!
I mean, yes, Your Honor.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- She Ran to the "Left" --

(1)
-White
Miss May's testimony was
correct... as was mine!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What do you mean by that!

   -White
   That is what I am
   about to explain!

   -White
   You Americans, always so
   impatient! It does not
   become you.

   -Phoenix
   (Hey buddy, you're an
   American, too!)

(2)
-White
When you assaulted the girl,
she first ran to the left.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What do you mean "first"?

   -White
   "First"? That is what comes
   before what happens "next."
   You do speak English, right?

   -White
   Please, sit back, relax.
   I will try to use simple
   words for your benefit.

   -White
   First, she ran to the left,
   and then...

(3)
-White
And then you hit her,
savagely! That is what I saw.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   I didn't hit anyone!

   -White
   Now, now, Mr. Wright.
   There is no point hiding
   things from this court.

   -Phoenix
   I'm not hiding anything!

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   The prosecution requests that
   the defense refrain from
   interrupting the testimony!

   -Judge
   Mr. Wright, you have
   been warned.

   -Phoenix
   (Why's he mad at me!?)

(4)
-White
Next, with the last
of her strength, she
ran to the right.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What do you mean "next"!?

   -White
   "Next" is what comes
   after "first."

   -Phoenix
   I know that!

   -White
   Then that is all you need
   to know, Mr. Lawyer.

   -White
   As I said, she turned and
   made a desperate dash to
   the right.

(5)
-White
You chased her, and delivered
the final blow.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Stop saying it was me!

   -White
   But, it was you.

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   Mr. Wright! If you claim
   that it was NOT you, then
   show us proof!

   -Phoenix
   (Argh! Can I do nothing
   right? Nothing!?)

   -White
   May I continue?

(6)
-White
That is what Miss May saw.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So each of you saw
   different parts...?

   -White
   Abso-posi-lutely!
   That's right, of course!

   -Phoenix
   (Where did he pick up
   that annoying phrase...?)

   -White
   Anyway, moving along!

(7)
-White
You see?
You hit her twice!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So were you watching
   both times?

   -White
   I suppose I was.

   -White
   And please excuse me for not
   testifying to this sooner!

-Maya
What do you think Phoenix?

-Phoenix
I think we've got him
right where we want him!
He slipped!

-Phoenix
Let him laugh for now.
I'll soon wipe that smile
off his face!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Mr. White!

-Phoenix
The victim died from
a "single" blow!

-White
...!

-Phoenix
What do you have
to say to that?

-White
Er... Erp!

-Phoenix
(Now's my chance to
hit him where it counts!)

-Phoenix
Mr. White. Wasn't it you who
told this court you were
"abso-posi-lutely perfect"?

-White
Mmph.

-White
I will refrain from using
this phrase from now on.

-Phoenix
Your Honor, if you could ask
the witness for a new
testimony...

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
The witness is obviously
confused, Your Honor!

-Edgeworth
I would like to request
a 10 minute break!

-Judge
Yes... yes, quite.

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
The witness is confused
because he's lying!

-Phoenix
I emphatically request that
there be no break, Your Honor!

(Yeah! We want justice...!)

(Don't let him get away!)

-Judge
Very well.

-Judge
If the witness would care to
revise his testimony...

-Phoenix
(The crowd's on my side!
No slipping out of this
now, White!)

-Judge
Mr. White?

-White
O... okay...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Two Accounts --

(1)
-White
Umm, well, see--I looked at
the other window when I heard
that thing fall.

(2)
-White
Then, the next moment, I saw
Miss Mia run to the left!

(3)
-White
The killer, you, attacked
her... but she dodged.

-White
Umm... and then...

(4)
-White
She turned, and ran
for the door!

(5)
-White
Then you did her in with
a single blow! Thwap!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm. "Thwap" indeed.

-Judge
Very well, you may begin
the cross-examination.

-White
Mr. Your Honor...

-White
My stomach, you see,
it is hurting...

-Phoenix
Deal with it.

-Phoenix
This is almost over.

-White
...!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Two Accounts --

(1)
-White
Umm, well, see--I looked at
the other window when I heard
that thing fall.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   You heard "that thing fall"?
   What exactly was "that thing"?

   -White
   Huh? Oh... oh, that?
   Umm... the glass light stand!

   -Phoenix
   (Right... the one that had
   fallen over at the scene.)

   -Maya
   Phoenix!

   -Maya
   Doesn't something about
   that strike you as odd?

   ***Yeah, very odd***************************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (Yeah, that is odd.
   * I'll press further.)
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Mr. White
   *
   * -White
   * Huh? W-what?
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * You're saying you saw
   * the glass light stand?
   *
   * -White
   * Y-yes.
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Then change your testimony
   * to reflect that!
   *
   * -White
   * S-sorry.
   * My bad...
   *
   * -Judge
   * The witness will revise
   * his testimony.
   *
   * -White
   * Okay okay. Of course.
   *
   * CHANGE TO 1b
   *
   ********************************************

   ***Nope*************************************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Huh?
   * No, not really.
   *
   * -Judge
   * Please continue your
   * cross-examination.
   *
   ********************************************

(1b)
-White
A light stand was lying on
the floor when I looked.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   The "glass stand was lying
   on the floor"? That's the
   first I've heard of this.

   -Phoenix
   Why didn't you tell us
   about the stand before?

   -White
   W-why? Me?

   -White
   W-well... I was instructed
   not to... wait!

   -White
   One moment!
   Give me a minute to gather
   my thoughts.

   -White
   I am so... so confused.

   -Phoenix
   (White's falling apart.)

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   Your Honor! Please, I ask that
   you do not allow the witness
   to be badgered any further!

   -Judge
   M-Mr. Wright.

   -Judge
   Please refrain from badgering
   the witness...

   -Phoenix
   Yes, Your Honor.
   (Edgeworth is on the ropes!)

   -Judge
   Very well. The witness
   may continue his account.

(2)
-White
Then, the next moment, I saw
Miss Mia run to the left!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "Miss Mia"...?

   -Phoenix
   Mr. White, did you know
   the victim personally?

   -White
   No no no, triple no!
   How would I? How could I!

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   I see nothing odd about
   the witness knowing
   the name of the victim.

   -Edgeworth
   Mr. Wright! I will not have
   you harrying the witness!

   -Phoenix
   (You're looking a little
   flustered, Edgeworth!)

(3)
-White
The killer, you, attacked
her... but she dodged.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Now before, you said that she
   was hit before she ran.

   -White
   Y-yes, I must have
   been confused.

   -White
   But don't worry!
   We all know what happened now.

(4)
-White
She turned, and ran
for the door!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What did you do then?

   -White
   I gave chase, of course!

   -White
   ...!

   -White
   No! No! Not me.
   Th-the killer, I mean!
   He gave chase!

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   Mr. White, please try
   to remain calm.

   -Edgeworth
   Mr. Wright here is only trying
   to fluster you with baseless
   accusations!

   -White
   Oh... oh right. Thank you,
   Miles.

(5)
-White
Then you did her in with
a single blow! Thwap!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "Thwap"...?

   -Phoenix
   That doesn't sound like the
   "savage" attack from your
   earlier testimony...

   -White
   Ho! Hoh hoh! Yes, well,
   I am a man of peace, you see.

-Maya
Phoenix!

-Maya
He's getting a lot
less talkative.

-Phoenix
He's probably afraid I'll
catch him on something!

-Phoenix
(But it won't be easy!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Mr. White.

***If Glass Shards presented****************
*
* -Phoenix
* It was impossible for you
* to have seen the light stand!
*
* -White
* Whaaaat!?
*
* -Phoenix
* The stand broke into
* pieces when it fell!
*
* -White
* Ooof!
*
* -Phoenix
* Just by seeing the broken
* pieces you would have no
* idea it was a light stand!
*
* -Phoenix
* So tell me, exactly when
* was it that you saw the stand?
*
* -Phoenix
* Answer the question!
*
* -White
* ...!
*
* -White
* I-isn't it obvious?
* I saw the stand before it
* fell over!
*
* -Phoenix
* So... you saw the stand
* before the victim was
* attacked, then?
*
* -White
* C-correct! That would be
* no problemo, right?
*
* -Phoenix
* (Hmm...)
*
* ***No problemo******************************
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Right.
* * I guess there isn't a problem.
* *
* * -Judge

* * Now...
* *
* * -Maya
* * Ph-Phoenix!
* * Wait!
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Huh? What?
* *
* * -Maya
* * He saw the stand through the
* * office window before it fell
* * over...
* *
* * -Maya
* * That's what he's saying,
* * right?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Yeah, I guess so.
* *
* * -Maya
* * How could that be possible?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Huh...? Why not?
* *
* * -Maya
* * There's no way he could have
* * seen it! And you have proof!
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * ...
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Oh!
* *
* * -Judge
* * Something wrong, Mr. Wright?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Sorry, Your Honor!
* * I guess there is a problemo,
* * er, I mean, a problem.
* *
* * -Judge
* * I see. Please try to think

* *

* * Sorry, Your Honor.

* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Mr. White, let me make sure
* * I have this straight...
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * You saw the glass light
* * stand through the window,
* * from the hotel...
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * before the incident occurred?
* *
* * -White
* * Correct! That is so!
* * It's conclusive, definitive,
* * undeniable... unimpeachable!
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * No, it's impossible!
* * You couldn't have seen
* * the stand!
* *

********************************************

-Phoenix
Look at this!

-Judge
These are the floor plans to
the scene of the murder, yes?

-Phoenix
Correct, Your Honor.
Now, look...

-Phoenix
If you were to look through
the window at the office...

-Phoenix
This is the area you
would be able to see!

Phoenix
Here!

-Phoenix
Well...?

-Phoenix
Note that the stand is not
within the visible area!

-Phoenix
Well, Mr. White!

-Phoenix
What do you have to
say to that!?

-White
Er... erp!

-White
Ri... dicu... losity...

-Phoenix
Mr. White.

-Phoenix
If you were in the Gatewater
hotel as you claim,

-Phoenix
you could not have seen the
stand before it fell over!

-Phoenix
In fact, you wouldn't have
been able to see it after
it fell, either!

-Phoenix
There's no way you could have
recognized the broken shards
as a glass light stand!

-Phoenix
So, when did you see
the stand, Mr. White?

-Phoenix
It must have been the
moment that it fell!

-Phoenix
And the only place you could
have seen that from... is
inside the Fey Law Offices!

-Phoenix
In other words, you were
at the scene of the crime,
when the murder took place!

-White
Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Mr... White?

-White
...

-Phoenix
Mr. White.

-White
...

-Phoenix
You did it, didn't you?

-White
...

-White
Mr. Your Honor.

-White
I... I...
Miss Mia...

-White
...

-Phoenix
(Heh. Looks like we're about
to get our verdict!)

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
That's far enough,
Phoenix Wright!

-Phoenix
W-what!?
(Urk! I forgot about
Edgeworth!)

-Edgeworth
Mr. White...

-White
...

-Edgeworth
I think the time has come.

-Edgeworth
Shouldn't you confess
your crime now, hmm?

-White
W... what?

-Edgeworth
I said, you should confess
your crime.

-Edgeworth
Ergo,

-Edgeworth
confess that you placed
the wiretap!

-Phoenix
The w-wiretap!?

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth! Explain to the
court what you mean by this!

-Edgeworth
Distinguished members of
of the court...

-Edgeworth
Mr. White is slightly
confused.

-Edgeworth
Allow me to explain.

-Phoenix
(I really don't like the
way this is headed...)

-Edgeworth
As you know, Mr. White is
the CEO of Bluecorp.

-Edgeworth
He ordered his secretary,
Miss April May, to tap the
law offices of Ms. Fey.

-Judge
What does that have to do...?

-Edgeworth
Your Honor.

-Edgeworth
The question is: when was the
wiretap placed in the office,
and by who?

-Phoenix
No! You wouldn't!

-Edgeworth
Mr. White.

-Edgeworth
In order to place the
wiretap, you entered
Ms. Fey's office.

-Edgeworth
Am I correct...?

-White
...

-White
!

-White
C-correct! You are
most correct, Miles!

-Phoenix
Give me a break!

-White
Yes... in order to place the
wiretap, I breached the
Fey & Co. Law Offices!

-White
That is when I saw that
accursed light stand!

-Judge
Now I'm confused. Please
explain to the court what
all this means, Mr. Edgeworth!

-Edgeworth
Gladly, Your Honor.

-Edgeworth
Mr. Phoenix Wright has made
his position quite clear.

-Edgeworth
He has determined that
Mr. White knew the glass
stand was in the office.

-Edgeworth
He has shown that there was
only one time Mr. White
could have seen the stand:

-Edgeworth
At the very moment of
the murder!

-Edgeworth
Thus, Mr. Wright would like
you to believe that Mr. White
was the murderer!

-Judge
I see.

-Edgeworth
However!

-Edgeworth
It is a fact that Mr. White
had been to that office well
before the murder took place!

-Edgeworth
He went to place the wiretap!

-Edgeworth
He could have seen the
glass light stand then.

-Edgeworth
Ergo, Mr. Phoenix Wright's
theory is revealed for the
baseless conjecture it is!

-Judge
Mr. White!

-Judge
You will testify to the
court about this wiretap!

-White
Ahem.
Leave it to me!

-Phoenix
(I... I feel faint.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Wiretapping --

(1)
-White
It was the beginning of
September... the week
before the murder.

(2)
-White
I had entered the
Fey & Co. Law Offices.

(3)
-White
Of course, I had done so
to place the wiretap.

(4)
-White
That is when I saw this
glass light stand.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
So, you saw the stand
before the night of
the incident...

-Judge
And this is how you were able
to identify what had fallen
over. By the sound?

-White
Correct!
That is right.

-Judge
I see.
Very well, Mr. Wright, you
may cross-examine.

-Phoenix
(Gah! What am I supposed
to do now...!?)

-Maya
Good luck, Phoenix...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Wiretapping --

(1)
-White
It was the beginning of
September... the week
before the murder.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   D-do you have proof!?

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   Miss April May knew the
   details of Ms. Fey's
   phone conversation!

   -Edgeworth
   This proves that the wiretap
   was placed before the murder!

   -Phoenix
   Huh... right.

(2)
-White
I had entered the
Fey & Co. Law Offices.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Was it really you that
   went into the office?

   -Phoenix
   Or was it Miss May?

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   Unidentified fingerprints
   several days old were found
   in the Fey & Co. Law Offices.

   -Edgeworth
   Those were obviously
   Mr. White's.

   -Phoenix
   (And if I know Edgeworth, he's
   already run a check on those
   prints...)

   -Edgeworth
   Now, Mr. White. Tell us why
   you went to the Fey & Co.
   Law Offices.

(3)
-White
Of course, I had done so
to place the wiretap.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why did you tap Mia's
   phone!?

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   That has no bearing on
   the current case, Your Honor.

   -White
   Bluecorp is a detective
   agency of sorts.

   -White
   We have a responsibility to
   protect client
   confidentiality!

(4)
-White
That is when I saw this
glass light stand.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why did you notice something
   as innocuous as a light
   stand!?

   -White
   The light stand was made
   entirely out of glass.

   -White
   It was quite stylish, so
   I guess it made a lasting
   impression on me.

   -White
   Such a beautacious thing
   deserves attention,
   does it not?

   -White
   That is all.

-Phoenix
(Dammit! There's nothing
there for me to press him on!)

-Phoenix
(Oh well... maybe he's rattled
enough that I can bluff
something out of him!)

CONTINUE AFTER PRESSING FOR A SHORT WHILE

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
(Uh oh! Don't tell me
I've run out of ammo!)

-Edgeworth
Tsk tsk.
I'm afraid that's as
far as you go, Mr. Wright.

-Edgeworth
The time has come for you
to admit your defeat!

-Edgeworth
You fought... honorably.

-Phoenix
(No more...)

-Phoenix
(I can't take this anymore...)

-Judge
Mr. Wright?

-Judge
Are you giving up?

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
Y-yes, Your Honor.

-???
(Phoenix!)

-Phoenix
...?

-???
(Phoenix! Over here!)

-Phoenix
(I know that voice!)

-Phoenix
(...)

-Phoenix
(M-Mia!?)

-Mia
Never give up, Phoenix!

-Phoenix
...!!!!

-Phoenix
M-M-Mia...!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
Where...
Where am I?

-Phoenix
The waiting lobby...?

-Phoenix
What happened?

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
Oh, right...

-Phoenix
I lost the trial.

-Phoenix
I was... hallucinating.

-Phoenix
...

-Mia
Ah, you're finally awake.

-Phoenix
Gak!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Mia
H-hey!
Phoenix!

-Mia
...

-Mia
"Gak"? That's no way
to greet an old friend!

-Mia
Phoenix, I want you
to look at me.

-Phoenix
Y-You're...

-Phoenix
M-Maya...?

-Mia
Didn't you know the Fey
women have strong psychic
powers...?

-Mia
When you accepted your
defeat in court...

-Mia
It appears that was enough
of a shock to awaken
Maya's true powers.

-Phoenix
So... Maya is channeling
you, Mia?

-Mia
That's right. I am Maya,
but I'm also Mia.

-Mia
Now, I want you to listen
to me, Phoenix.

-Mia
Maya never gave up.
You can't either!

-Mia
That's what I came here
to tell you.

-Phoenix
...!

-Phoenix
B-but!

-Mia
We don't have much time,
Phoenix. Now listen.

-Mia
You've already won.

-Phoenix
Huh...?

-Mia
You have that Receipt in
the court record, right?

-Phoenix
Um... oh, yeah! The one you
wrote "Maya" on...?

-Mia
Phoenix! White wrote that,
not me!

-Phoenix
So... so what do I do with it?

-Mia
Look at the front of
the receipt!

-Phoenix
The... front?

-Phoenix
(It's a regular receipt...)

-Phoenix
(Looks like it's from a
famous department store.)

-Phoenix
("$1,000.00"... wow, big
spender!)

-Phoenix
("Item"...
"glass light stand"...!)

-Phoenix
("Date of purchase"...
"September 4"...)

-Phoenix
...!

-Phoenix
September 4!

-Mia
That's right, Phoenix.

-Mia
I bought that stand the
day before I was killed!

-Phoenix
Whoa!

-Mia
Now, what did Mr. White
say in his testimony?

-White
It was the beginning of
September... the week
before the murder.

-Phoenix
He said he saw the stand
the week before the murder!

-Mia
There you go!

-Mia
I think the court is
about to reconvene!

-Mia
Go do it, Phoenix!
You know you're innocent,
now you just have to prove it!

-Phoenix
Right!

Receipt updated in
the Court Record.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

September 9, 1:16 PM
District Court
Courtroom No. 1

-Judge
The court will now reconvene
for the trial of Mr. Phoenix
Wright.

-Judge
Is the defendant... rather,
are you alright, Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Yes.
Sorry, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
I'm fine now.

-Judge
Then, let's start where
we left off.

-Edgeworth
Your Honor.

-Edgeworth
There is nothing to
go back to!

-Edgeworth
The cross-examination of
Mr. White is finished!

-Edgeworth
All that is required now is
for you to pass judgment on
the defendant Phoenix Wright!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
Please, give me
one more chance.

-Phoenix
I promise you, this is the
last time I'll ask you!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
But, as Mr. Edgeworth has
noted, the trial is more or
less finished.

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth, do you have an
opinion on this matter?

-Edgeworth
I say... let us give
Mr. Phoenix Wright his
"last chance."

-Judge
Very well!

-Judge
You may begin your
cross-examination.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Wiretapping --

(1)
-White
It was the beginning of
September... the week
before the murder.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Do you have proof!?

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   Miss April May knew the
   details of Ms. Fey's
   phone conversation!

   -Edgeworth
   This proves that the wiretap
   was placed before the murder!

   -Phoenix
   Huh... right.

   -Phoenix
   (Gah! I have to show him the
   evidence Mia gave me!)

(2)
-White
I had entered the
Fey & Co. Law Offices.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Was it really you that

   Now, Mr. White. Tell us why
   you went to the Fey & Co.
   Law Offices

(3)
-White
Of course, I had done so
to place the wiretap.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why did you tap Mia's
   phone!?

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   This has no bearing on
   the current case, Your Honor.

   -Judge
   Objection sustained.
   Mr. Wright...

   -Judge
   I don't see how asking the
   same questions again will
   make any difference.

   -Phoenix
   (Right! I have to show him the
   evidence Mia gave me!)

(4)
-White
That is when I saw this
glass light stand.

   -Phoenix

   him the proof Mia gave me!)

-Phoenix
(Now I've just got to show
him the proof Mia gave me!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Look closely at this.

-Phoenix
See the word "Maya" written
in blood...?

-Edgeworth
Bwah hah!
You're grasping!

-Phoenix
I think not. Look at the
other side of the receipt.

-Edgeworth
Th-the other side?

-Phoenix
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
Would you tell the court
what is written on the other
side of that receipt?

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Well!

-Judge
A "glass light stand"!

-Judge
And the date of purchase...

-Judge
Why, that's the day
before the murder!

-Phoenix
You see!

-Phoenix
Mr. White.

-Phoenix
When you allegedly entered
Fey & Co. Law Offices at the
beginning of September...

-Phoenix
The stand could not
have been there!

-White
Kwaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa


-White
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaahh!?

-Phoenix
Well, Mr. White?

-Phoenix
Can't get out of this
one, can you?

-White
No...
It's impossachievable...

-Phoenix
(Uh oh... he's losing it.)

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
Well, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
I understand there must be
quite a bit of PRESSURE
on you.

-Phoenix
But I think you'll agree you
can't judge me "guilty" under
these circumstances.

-Judge
!

-Judge
......

-Judge
Very well.

-Judge
Then, that is all for
the trial of...

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
Not so fast, Phoenix Wright!

-Phoenix
Eh?

-Phoenix
(What! No way he can worm
his way out of this one!)

-Phoenix
(Oh wait... I forgot.
It's Edgeworth.)

-Edgeworth
There is a certain thread
of logic to the defendant's
claims.

-Edgeworth
However!

-Edgeworth
There is no concrete proof
that Phoenix Wright is
innocent!

-Phoenix
(...!)

-Edgeworth
Ergo!

-Edgeworth
I would like to request one
more day before Phoenix Wright
is granted his freedom.

-Edgeworth
I need time to make one more
inquiry into this matter.

-Judge
Hmm...!

-Phoenix
(Another inquiry...!?)

-Phoenix
(This isn't going to be
another one of those
"updated autopsy reports"!)

-Phoenix
(This guy just makes up
evidence as he pleases!)

-Phoenix
(This is bad...!)

***Object***********************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Mr. White's guilt
* is obvious!
*
* -Phoenix
* There is no need to prolong
* this trial any further!
*
* -Judge
* Hmm.
*
* -Judge
* Well, Mr. Edgeworth?
*
* -Edgeworth
* If anyone is going to call
* Mr. White to trial, it
* would be me, the prosecution.
*
* -Edgeworth
* I need a day to ascertain
* whether your claims have any
* basis in factual evidence!
*
* -Judge
* Hmm.
*
* -Judge
* I see.
*
* -Judge
* Objection denied!
*
* -Phoenix
* Whaaaat!
*
********************************************

***Wait and see what happens****************
*
* -Phoenix
* (Hmm. I don't know where he's

* hold back for now.)
*
* -Judge
* I see...
*
* -Judge
* Very well.
*
* -Judge
* As there is no objection from
* the defense, I grant
* Mr. Edgeworth his extra day.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Uh oh...)
*
********************************************

-Judge
The completion of the trial
of Mr. Phoenix Wright will be
postponed until tomorrow.

-Phoenix
(No! There's no telling what
will happen if I can't end
this now!)

-Phoenix
(Edgeworth is sure to come up
with--or just make up--
something!)

-Phoenix
(And after Mia showed up
to help me and all...)

-White
Mr. Your Honor!

-White
May I go home?

-Judge
Of course.
Thank you for your time.

-Phoenix
(Gah!)

-Mia
The witness will stay!

-Phoenix
(M-Mia...!)

-Mia
Phoenix!

-Mia
Read this note out loud.

-Phoenix
Mia? What's this...?

Memo received from Mia.

-Phoenix
Your Honor.
If I may...?

-Judge
You're quite persistent today,
Mr. Wright!

-Phoenix
(You bet I am! My life is
riding on this one!)

-Phoenix
I have something I would
like to read to the court!

***Present something wrong******************
*
* -Phoenix
* *TAKE THAT!*
*
* -Phoenix
* (No... that's not it!
* I can't mess this one up!)
*
* -Judge
* Something the matter?
*
* -Phoenix
* N-no, Your Honor!
*
* RETURN TO COURT RECORD
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
The memo Mia had given me
was a list of names.

-Phoenix
Many of them sounded
strangely familiar.

-Phoenix
People in finance, famous
celebrities...

-Phoenix
That's when it happened.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-White
S-s-stop! Desist! Halt!

-White
P-please, stop!
Make him stop!

-White
How... how did you
get that list!?

-Mia
Mr. White.

-Mia
Admit your guilt, right
here, right now.

-Mia
Or else this list will
be released to the press!

-White
!!!

-White
...

-White
I... I confess.

-White
I confess.

-White
I... I did it.
I hit her.

-White
I hit Miss Mia with
"The Thinker"!

-White
...

-Mia
Case closed, Your Honor.

-Judge
Well, I see no reason to
continue this trial.

-Judge
Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-Judge
You've done it again!
That was quite a spirited
defense!

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
I guess you could say that.
(If only you knew how
"spirit"-ed it was!)

-Judge
Hmm. Well!

-Judge
This court finds the
defense...

-Judge
Ahem! Rather, the defendant,
Mr. Phoenix Wright...

* N O T   G U I L T Y *

-Judge
That is all.
The court is adjourned!

-Mia
Well, I never thought I'd
be saying this again...

-Mia
But, congratulations!
You're lucky I was
born a Fey!

-Phoenix
I'm lucky I had both
you and Maya on my side.

-Mia
I'm glad you made it.

-Mia
...

-Mia
Thank you, Phoenix.

-Mia
You risked a lot to help
me... and Maya.

-Mia
I won't forget it as
long as I live!

-Phoenix
(As long as you "live"...?)

-Mia
...

-Mia
My time here's running out.

-Phoenix
Huh?

-Mia
Maya's powers are still weak.

-Mia
I can't stay here that long.

-Phoenix
W-what!? No!
There's still so much to say!

-Mia
Don't worry.

-Mia
I'm sure we'll meet again.

-Phoenix
Ch-Chief!

-Mia
Hee hee.
I'm not the "Chief" anymore.

-Mia
Phoenix?

-Mia
Can you come to the office
tonight... say, 9:00?

-Phoenix
The office...?

-Mia
I'll see you later.

-Phoenix
Chief... Mia!

-Phoenix
(Being here, it's hard not
to think about that night...)

-???
You came!

-Phoenix
Mia...

-???
I was kinda worried
you might not.

-Phoenix
Huh? Of course I came...

-???
Well then!

-???
I'm pretty hungry.
How about a burger?

-Phoenix
M-Mia...?

-???
...

-???
Bwah hah hah!
You should see your face!

-Phoenix
Mia!

-Maya
What are you talking about?
It's me! Maya!

-Phoenix
M-Maya...?

-Maya
What, did I look like
my sister?

-Phoenix
(Look like... you WERE her!)

-Maya
Hmm! I might be able to
use that.

-Maya
"Oh, Phoenix! Go to the store
and buy me lunch, would you?"

-Phoenix
Uhm, Maya...
Why are you here?

-Maya
Because of this!

-Maya
See? Mia wrote me a letter.

-Maya
"Take care of Phoenix for me."

-Phoenix
Take care of... huh?

-Maya
She means the office!
This office!

-Maya
Someone has to help with the
new Wright & Co. Law Offices,
right?

-Maya
And who better but me!
Maya Fey, reporting for duty!

-Maya
Wait, no, on second thought,
let's make this casual!

-Maya
Yo, Nick! Maya here, ready
to get down to business!

-Maya
You... don't mind me calling
you "Nick," do you?

-Maya
It's a great name! Mia said
that's what your friend
Larry calls you.

-Phoenix
("Nick"...?)

-Maya
You know what this means?
We're partners!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
You know, when I think
about it...

-Phoenix
It is Maya's fault
I'm here now.

-Phoenix
But...

-Phoenix
If it wasn't for her
I'd probably be in jail!

-Phoenix
"Wright & Co. Law Offices."
It's got a good ring to it.

-Phoenix
Yeah!

-Phoenix
Thanks, Maya!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Mia
(Good luck, Phoenix.)

-Mia
(I'll always be here...
watching.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Maya
Right! Okay, Nick, let's do it!

-Phoenix
Huh? Do... what?

-Maya
Burgers, dummy! Burgers!

-Maya
There's a great burger
joint just down the street.

-Maya
C'mon! Time's a wasting!

-Phoenix
O-okay! Wait up!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Grrah!
You have disgraced me for the
last time, Steel Samurai!

The pale moon in the sky
cries for your blood!

The moon? No, it is you who
should gaze upon the moon...

For it will be the last moon
you ever see!

See you in hell,
Evil Magistrate!

Whoooooooaaaaaaa!

Grrrrrraaaaaaaah!

The warriors' swords gleam
and strike in the moonlight!

One has fallen... but who?
Only the moon knows!

Don't miss next week's
exciting episode:
"The Dark Messenger Returns!"

Wright & Co. Law Offices

-Maya
That rocked!

-Maya
"See you in Hell,
Evil Magistrate!!!"

-Phoenix
Whoa!
Stop waving that broom
around!

-Maya
Oh, Nick!
I didn't know you were here!

-Phoenix
Of course I'm here!

-Phoenix
What was that surreal
show you were watching?

-Maya
What!?
Nick, you mean, you don't
know the Steel Samurai!?

-Maya
He's only the most popular
TV hero for young people!

-Phoenix
Young...?
Like, how young?

-Maya
Umm... 10 years old?

-Phoenix
Then what the heck are YOU
doing getting all excited!?

-Maya
Hey! I'm only 17!

-Maya
That's seven-"teen." See?
I'm a teen! Not like you,
Nick.

-Phoenix
Hey! Don't talk to me like I'm
your grandpa or something.
I'm only 24 myself.

-Maya
Then watch it with me!
He's really cool!
And... it's really popular!

-Maya
When they asked grade school
kids what they wanted to be,
"Steel Samurai" was no.1!

-Phoenix
I really worry about kids
these days.

-Maya
Gramps!

-Maya
Well, the Steel Samurai's
over. I guess it's time to
close up the office.

-Phoenix
I guess...

-Phoenix
Wish we had some clients!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
A month has passed
since my trial.

-Phoenix
Mia's murder was the talk of
the town for some time...

-Phoenix
But no one paid any attention
to the Wright & Co. Law
Offices...

-Phoenix
How am I going to
pay the rent this month?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Maya
It'll be okay.

-Maya
I'm sure some big client
is just around the corner!

-Phoenix
Hmph.

It's still early...

I-it's the Steel Samurai!
The Steel Samurai got
arrested!

-Phoenix
Huh? You mean the
guy on that show?

-Maya
Yes!

-Maya
They're saying that the
Steel Samurai killed
a villain!

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
Umm...

-Phoenix
Isn't that what he's
supposed to do?

-Maya
Yeah, on TV!

-Phoenix
Yeah, on TV.

-Maya
No! I mean, he actually
did it! In real life!

-Maya
He skewered a villain
with his Samurai Spear!

-Phoenix
I have absolutely no idea
what you're talking about.

-Maya
Just come to the office,
quick! Please, Nick!

-Phoenix
(Maya's here...
watching television.)

-TV
Now for the morning news.

-TV
The actor Will Powers
was arrested yesterday.
Powers plays the lead role

-TV
in the popular kid's show
"The Steel Samurai: Warrior
of Neo Olde Tokyo."

-TV
He was arrested on
suspicion of murder.

-TV
The victim was Jack Hammer,
who plays the villain known
as the "Evil Magistrate."

-TV
His body was found still
inside the Evil Magistrate
costume.

-TV
The "Samurai Spear" was also
found stuck through the body.

-TV
Police believe this was the
murder weapon, and are
investigating further.

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
This has to be a joke.

-Maya
No, no, no! It's a nightmare!
The Steel Samurai is over!
The world is over!

Yes... yes, of course!
We'll be right there!

Let's go, Nick!

-Phoenix
Go? Go where?

-Maya
They have the Steel Samurai
down in detention!

-Phoenix
So what!?

-Maya
So, I've decided this
will be our first case!

-Phoenix
What's wrong, Maya?
It's him! In the flesh!

-Maya
Umm...
Is that guy really him?

-Phoenix
Whaddya mean "that guy"?
Of course it's him!

-Phoenix
Will Powers, our client!
That's him.

-Maya
Um, maybe I shouldn't
be saying this...

-Maya
But he definitely did it.
Murder. At least once.
Maybe twice.

-Phoenix
Whoa whoa whoa!
What are you saying!?

-Will
Umm...

-Maya
Y-yes!?

-Will
Something wrong...?

-Maya
N-no! No!

-Phoenix
(This is getting off to a
great start.)

-Will
I know, I know. You're
disappointed, aren't you?

-Maya
D-disappointed!? Oh, no.
Oh no.

-Will
No, it's okay.
This is the real me.

-Will
When I got the part of
the Steel Samurai, with
that mask...

-Will
I decided I would never show
my face in public until the
job was over.

-Will
It's the kids, you know.
I didn't want to wreck
their dreams.

-Maya
Oh...

-Will
I guess it didn't matter.

-Will
So much for dreams.

-Will
I wonder what they think
of the Steel Samurai now.

-Will
*sniff*
Uwaaah!

-Maya
Nick!

-Phoenix
What?

-Maya
He's a good guy!
I mean, he's good!

-Phoenix
Yeah.

He didn't do it!

* Maybe you could start by

*
* -Will
* Y-yes. Of course.
*
* -Will
* It seems like it was only
* yesterday. Actually, it was
* only yesterday.
*
* -Will
* The cast had come down

*
* -Will
* We went through a few

*
* -Will
* The Evil Magistrate was

* -Will
* They took off his mask...

*
* -Will
* He had been expertly skewered

*
-Phoenix
* The "Samurai Spear"...?
*
* -Will
* Yes, it's a long spear
* that I... that the Steel
* Samurai uses as a weapon.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The Steel Samurai"***********

* Nick!
* How could you say such a

*
* -Maya
* I-I'm sorry, sir, I apologize

* He's new to this, and a bit
* OUT OF TOUCH with the world.
*
* -Phoenix
* Hey! Who's "new to this"!?
*
* -Will
* No, it's alright, really.
*
* -Will
* The Steel Samurai is the lead
* character in a popular kid's
* show.
*
* -Will
* He walks the streets of
* Neo Olde Tokyo...
*
* -Will
* Fighting battle after battle
* against the Evil Magistrate
* and his minions.
*
* -Will
* Of course, he never really
* defeats the Evil Magistrate.
*
* -Will
* Although...
*
* -Will
* I guess he did defeat
* him this time...
*
* -Will
* *sniff*
* Uwaaah!
*
* -Phoenix
* I-I see.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Neo Olde Tokyo...?
* Who comes up with
* these names!?)

********************************************

***Talk about "Powers's alibi"**************
*
* -Phoenix
* Now, where were you on
* the day of the murder?
*
* -Will
* Well, that morning I came
* to studios at 9:00.
*
* -Will
* We worked through some
* action scenes until noon.
*
* -Will
* Rehearsal was to begin at
* 5:00, but I was a little
* tired.
*
* -Will
* So after lunch, I took a nap
* in my dressing room.
*
* -Will
* When I woke up, it was
* after 5:00! I was late
* for the rehearsal!
*
* -Will
* I hurried to the studio...
* and found everyone looking
* shocked.
*
* -Will
* They arrested me on the
* spot, and brought me here.
*
* -Phoenix
* (So he was sleeping the entire
* afternoon of the murder?)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Some action hero!)
*
* -Will
* What will the kids think?
* *sniff*
* 
* CONTINUE FOR FIRST TIME ONLY
*
* -Phoenix
* I think I should probably
* check out the scene of
* the murder...
*
* -Will
* Right... Global Studios.
* I'll draw you a map.
*
* -Maya
* Wow! Nick! Let's go!

Hey! You there!

You want in, you gotta

-Maya
O-oh... s-sorry!

-Maya
W-we're, um, lawyers.

-Oldbag
Oh yeah? Well that's great.
I'm security!

-Oldbag
And it's my job to make
sure that gawkers like
you stay OUT.

-Maya
G-gawkers?

-Oldbag
Gawkers! Sightseers!
Tourists!!!

-Oldbag
I know the type. You heard
about the incident and came
to snoop around.

-Oldbag
Youths today! Something
horrible happens and all you
can think of is sightseeing.

-Oldbag
Wasting your time
at a place like this.

-Oldbag
Don't you have jobs
you should be doing?

-Oldbag
Or do lawyers not work like
the rest of us? Maybe I should
become a lawyer too. Sounds

-Oldbag
like a life of ease to me no
work just loafing around all
day as you please. Well when

-Oldbag
I was young things were a mite
different, mind you we didn't
prance around in strange

-Oldbag
hippie clothes. What are the
youths coming to these days my
own son hasn't called in...

-Maya
Umm... Nick?

-Maya
Will I grow up to be like
her? Please say "no."

-Phoenix
I dunno! It's possible.

-Oldbag
Hey!

Listen when you're being
spoken to! Youths today!

* -Oldbag
* Hey! No touching!
*
********************************************

***Examine main gate************************
*
* -Phoenix
* The main entrance
* to the studio.
*
* -Phoenix
* There was a big scene here
* yesterday with onlookers
* pressing up against the gate.
*
********************************************

***Examine signpost*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* An overhead map of
* the studios.
*
* -Phoenix
* Right from here is the
* Employee Area.
*
* -Phoenix
* To the left are the
* actual film studios.
*
********************************************

***Examine van******************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Looks like a studio van.
*
* -Phoenix
* They probably use it to
* carry around film equipment.

***Present other****************************
*
* -Oldbag
* What's that?
* You giving that to me?
*
* -Phoenix
* (Absolutely not!)
*

***Talk about "The studios"*****************
*
* -Phoenix
* So, what do you do here
* at the studios?
*
* -Oldbag
* At Global Studios, we make
* children's dreams come true!
*
* -Oldbag
* In fact, in my
* younger days...
*
* -Maya
* No! You were a star!?
*
* -Oldbag
* Only a little twinkle
* between the stars here,
* I'm afraid, dearie.
*
* -Maya
* Wo... wow.
*
* -Oldbag
* This place has really
* gone downhill, you know?
*
* -Oldbag
* But 10 years ago, now that
* was a studio of dreams!
*
* -Oldbag
* Hammer was a big star back
* then too, he was...
*
* -Phoenix
* Hammer...?
*
* -Oldbag
* The victim, dummy!
*
* -Oldbag
* The Evil Magistrate!
*
* -Oldbag
* He's been reduced to playing
* villains now. Not exactly the
* best material to work with...
*

***Talk about "Will Powers"*****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Can you tell me about
* Mr. Will Powers?
*
* -Oldbag
* He's not a bad kid, but
* don't be fooled by his mask!
*
* -Oldbag
* You wouldn't want him on
* the silver screen without
* it, believe me.
*
* -Oldbag
* Little old ladies watching
* would lose their lunch!
*
* -Oldbag
* That's probably why he thought
* that the Steel Samurai was
* his "big chance."
*
* -Oldbag
* No one thought he was
* capable of doing what he
* did to poor Jack Hammer...
*
* -Maya
* We don't know for certain
* that Will Powers is guilty!
*
* -Oldbag
* Powers? Of course he's guilty!
*
* -Oldbag
* How do I know?
* I know everything!
* That's my job.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Mr. Hammer"******************
*
* -Phoenix
* What kind of person
* was Jack Hammer?
*
* -Oldbag
* What "kind of person"?
* Oh... if you only knew!
*
* -Oldbag
* Jack Hammer will live on
* in many hearts as the
* ultimate action hero!
*
* -Oldbag
* He was simply dashing
* in the Dynamite Samurai
* series!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Should I have heard
* of that...?)
*
* -Oldbag
* But... there was an accident
* during filming five years ago.
*
* -Oldbag
* He got an unlucky break
* after that.
*
* -Oldbag
* Reduced to playing the villain
* on a children's program!
*
* -Oldbag
* What's more, I heard they
* were paying him peanuts.
* It's enough to make you cry.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Reason for suspicion"********
*
* -Phoenix
* Why are you so certain
* Mr. Powers is the killer?
*
* -Oldbag
* I was standing right
* here yesterday, I was.
*
* -Oldbag
* I was here from 1:00 in
* the afternoon, to 5:00,
* when they found the body!
*
* -Oldbag
* Now the studio where the
* murder took place is to
* the left here.
*
* -Oldbag
* So if you want to go to
* the studio, you have to
* pass by me!
*
* -Oldbag
* Only one person went by here
* between 1:00 and 2:30, when
* the murder took place!
*
* -Phoenix
* And... that person
* was Mr. Powers?
*
* -Oldbag
* Yes.
* I saw him!
*
* -Phoenix
* But Mr. Powers says he was
* sleeping in his dressing room.
*
* -Oldbag
* Oh, I'm sure he would
* say that. He's no fool!
*
* -Oldbag
* But he was the only
* one that walked by.
*
* -Oldbag
* He's the killer, you can
* bet your biscuits on it.
*

AFTER TALKING ABOUT EVERYTHING

-Oldbag
Isn't it about time for
you to be heading home?

-Oldbag
There's nothing to see here.
Move along.

-Phoenix
Um, actually, we're here
at Mr. Powers's request.

-Oldbag
Hmph! I thought you were
suspicious lookin'!

-Oldbag
Show me a "letter of
request."

-Oldbag
And maybe I'll just
let you in.

-Maya
This lady here thinks
she owns this place,
obviously.

Hello!
How was the studio?

-Will
They all think I did it,

-Maya
N-no, not at all!
Isn't that right, Nick?

-Phoenix
Right, not at all.
At worst, you're a suspect.

***Talk about "Your alibi"******************
*
* -Phoenix
* Mr. Powers, you aren't
* hiding anything from
* me, are you?
*
* -Will
* W-what?
* No! I'd never do that!
*
* -Phoenix
* Just now you said that you

*
* -Will
* Yes.
* Like a baby.
*
* -Phoenix
* But the security lady
* said she saw you that day.
*
* -Phoenix
* She says she saw you heading
* towards the scene of the
* crime!
*
* -Will
* W-what!? That's not possible!
*
* -Will
* I... I really don't know
* what to say! I was sleeping,
* I promise!
*
* -Phoenix
* Mr. Powers, if you want me
* to help you, you have to
* tell me the truth.
*
* -Phoenix
* I'm new to this lawyer
* business, and I need every
* advantage I can get.
*
* -Will
* I know... I-I'm sorry.
* *sniff*
*
* -Will
* But, I swear to you on my
* momma's grave, I was sleeping.
*
* -Will
* Maybe the security lady
* only thought she saw me?
*
* -Phoenix
* (What did she see...?
* He doesn't seem to be lying.)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The security lady"***********
*
* -Phoenix
* Umm... about the security
* guard at the main gate
* to the studio...
*
* -Will
* Oh, the security lady?
*
* -Maya
* She's terrible! She called me
* "suspicious lookin'"!
*
* -Will
* Y-yes... actually, she's said
* the same thing to me before.
*
* -Will
* "Take off that mask!" were
* her words, I believe.
*
* -Will
* She sucks up to all the
* bigwigs at the studio...
*
* -Will
* But let her see you stumble
* once and she'll never let
* up on you.
*
* -Maya
* Grr! She's got some nerve!
*
* CONTINUE FOR FIRST TIME ONLY
*
* -Phoenix
* Do you think you ould write
* up a letter formally
* requesting my representation?
*
* -Will
* Of c-course.

* Hmm...?
*
* -Oldbag
* Yes, yes. I recognize the
* bold, childish scrawl.
*
* Gave Powers's Request
* to the security lady.

* To think he would entrust

* Anyway,

-Gumshoe
Hey!

-Gumshoe
Aren't you that murderer
from the other day!

-Maya
Aah!
It's that confused detective!

-Gumshoe
Hey pal, you know Prosecutor
Edgeworth is all upset, and
it's your fault!

-Gumshoe
I saw him sipping tea
and staring gloomily out
the window!

-Phoenix
Umm... so?

-Maya
Hey!

-Maya
If he's depressed, it's all
your fault for doing sloppy
detective work!

-Gumshoe
!!!

-Gumshoe
...

-Gumshoe
...

-Gumshoe
...

-Maya
Um, Detective?

-Phoenix
I think you hurt his feelings.

-Maya
Oh no!
I... I'm sorry!

-Phoenix
Well, I think his feelings
are easily hurt.

-Gumshoe
You're right, pal.
It's all my fault.

-Gumshoe
I can blame other people
all I want, but I know
the truth in my heart!

-Maya
Hey, hey! Don't take it
so hard! There's always
the next case!

-Gumshoe
Yeah, I suppose you're right.

-Gumshoe
Hey!

-Gumshoe
What exactly are you
two doing here?

-Maya
Um, well...

-Maya
We're on this case too, pal!

-Gumshoe
Huh!? Hey! You can't

like that!

-Gumshoe
That's MY endearing
character trait!

-Maya
I'd say he's a character
alright...

***Examine WELCOME sign*********************
*
* -Maya
* There's a big welcome
* sign above the path.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Yeah, apparently the studio's
* fallen on tough times.
*
* -Gumshoe
* They've started letting
* people in on days they
* aren't filming.
*
* -Gumshoe
* They make a bit of extra

* admission.
*
* -Maya
* Huh.
* You sure know a lot about
* this place, Detective.
*
* -Maya
* You know, you could always
* quit being a detective
* and work here?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah! And what perfect
* timing, with the monkey's
* neck broken and all.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Huh? Just what's that
* supposed to mean, pal!?

********************************************

***Examine bench****************************

* Detective!
* Aren't you on the case?
*
* -Gumshoe
* W-well, yeah, but...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Hey, us detectives get

* too, pal!
*
********************************************

***Examine path to the left*****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Detective Gumshoe, what's
* down the path to the left?
*
* -Phoenix
* It looks like a tree
* fell down over the path...?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Oh, yeah. That way's kind
* of dangerous. You should
* stay out, pal.
*
* -Gumshoe
* There's nothing down
* there, anyway.
*
* -Gumshoe
* That's where Studio Two
* used to be, they tell me.
*
* -Gumshoe
* They don't use it now, though.

***Examine mascot***************************
*
* -Phoenix
* The studio mascot.
*
* -Phoenix
* I guess it's a monkey
* of some kind.
*
* -Phoenix
* But what kind of monkey has
* a nose like that?
*
* -Phoenix
* He's holding a sign
* in his hand.
*
* -Phoenix
* [Right: To Studio One
* Left: To Studio Two]
*

* What's up with that

* kind of... busted.

* the head broke off.
*
* -Gumshoe
* It took that tree down
* with it, too.

********************************************

***Examine camera***************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Hey, there's a
* camera here.
*
* -Gumshoe
* That's the security camera.
* It takes photos of people
* going to the studio.
*
* -Gumshoe
* All you have to do is look
* at the data and you can see
* who went where!
*
* -Phoenix
* There's a number plate
* on the camera... [ST1-307].
*
* -Phoenix
* That must be the
* camera ID number.

***Examine Studio One entrance**************
*
* -Phoenix
* The entrance to Studio One.

* -Maya
* Let's go in and check
* it out, Nick!
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* Hey! It's locked!
*
* -Phoenix
* Looks like you need a
* cardkey to get in.
*
* -Phoenx
* It makes sense that they
* would want to keep the
* non-employees out.
*
********************************************

***Present Attorney's Badge*****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Detective, see this?
* This is my attorney's badge.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Uh huh?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Don'tcha think it's a little
* sad when you have to explain
* what your badge means, pal?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Real men show their P.D.
* badge and that's that!
*
* -Phoenix
* I'll admit the design of
* my badge leaves a lot to
* be desired...

* What I got?

* Sorry about what happened
* last time, pal.
*

* worth a try.)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Reason for arrest"***********
*
* -Phoenix
* Why was Mr. Powers arrested?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Simple, pal!
*
* -Gumshoe
* The murder took place right
* over there in Studio One.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Now, the victim entered
* Studio One at approximately
* 1:00 PM.
*
* -Gumshoe
* At that time, there was no
* one other than the victim
* in the studio.
*
* -Gumshoe
* According to the autopsy report,
* the time of death was 2:30 PM.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Only one person went to the
* studio between 1:00 and 2:30!
*
* -Gumshoe
* And that person was none
* other than Will Powers!
*
* -Gumshoe
* No one else, pal!
*
* -Gumshoe
* If you think I'm lying,
* ask the security lady
* at the main gate.
*
* -Maya
* Nick! If that's true...!
*
* -Maya
* Anyone would think that
* Powers did it with that
* kind of evidence!
*
* -Phoenix
* Thanks for cheering me up...
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The Security Lady"***********
*
* -Phoenix
* About the security lady...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Oh, that sweet old lady.
* What a charmer!
*
* -Phoenix
* Huh?
* A-are we talking about
* the same person?
*
* -Gumshoe
* When I showed her my badge
* she gave me a donut and
* some coffee!
*
* -Maya
* Remember what Powers said.
* She's a sucker for authority.
*
* -Gumshoe
* She even gave me a piece
* of valuable evidence!
*
* -Maya
* Whaat!?
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Decisive evidence"***********
*
* -Phoenix
* What kind of evidence!?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Well, that, er, photo.
*
* -Gumshoe
* The photo of the Steel Samurai
* heading toward the scene
* of the crime!
*
* -Maya
* What!
* Who took that!?
*
* -Gumshoe
* See the camera up
* on that gate, pal?
*
* -Maya
* The gate? You mean the
* one with the welcome sign?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Yeah. Whenever someone walks
* by, that camera automatically
* snaps a photo of them!
*
* -Maya
* Oh no!
*
* -Maya
* Nick, he has evidence!
* We're finished!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Funny, for someone with
* hard proof he doesn't look
* too happy.)

AFTER TALKING ABOUT EVERYTHING

-Gumshoe
What's wrong, pal?
You seem down.

-Phoenix
Don't look so happy

-Gumshoe
Oh hoh hoh hoh hoh!

-Maya
Umm...

-Maya
We'd like to ask the employees
here some questions...

-Gumshoe
Sure thing, pal.

-Gumshoe
Go wherever you like.

-Gumshoe
Of course, you're not going
to find any clues I haven't
already found! Hah hah hah!

-Phoenix
(I'm glad someone around
here seems to be enjoying
themselves.)

-Maya
Nick, let's go!

-Maya
We've got a free pass to

to check things out!

MOVE TO: Studio - Main Gate

Nick! Look!

That security lady is in the

-Maya
I guess all cops like

Yeah, and they're soft
enough she doesn't need
teeth to chew them...

-Oldbag
Hey, you!

Well? Are you satisfied
Powers is guilty yet?

*
* -Oldbag
* Oh, just to the left from
* here is the gate with the
* camera that took that photo.

***Talk about "Reason for suspicion"********

* No matter where you go here,
* you pass by my station first!
*
* -Oldbag
* Now poor Hammer, he went to
* the studio just before 1:00.
*
* -Oldbag
* The murder happened right
* around 2:30, see?
*
* -Oldbag
* The only one I seen go through
* here between 1:00 and 2:30
* was Powers himself!
*
* -Oldbag
* The security camera got
* a good look at him too.
*
* -Oldbag
* If he's not the one what

*
* -Phoenix
* ("Was"? Past tense?)

* -Maya
* Oh yes! He was great as
* the "Bearded Samurai"!
*
* -Oldbag
* That too, yes.
*
* -Oldbag
* He shone the brightest!
* Back in the day.
*
* -Oldbag
* Making a star like him play
* the "Evil Magistrate"...
* It's a disgrace, I tell you!
*
* -Oldbag
* Hammer took it pretty hard,
* and who can blame him?
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Automatic camera"************
*
* -Phoenix
* About the security camera...
*
* -Oldbag
* Oh yes, the camera.
*
* -Oldbag
* It's automatic. It can tell
* when someone walks through
* that gate, see?
*
* -Oldbag
* Then it snaps a photo!
*
* -Oldbag
* Apparently, it records the
* time when it takes a picture
* too.
*
* -Oldbag
* But I don't bother myself
* with those details.
*
* -Oldbag
* I just view all the photos
* on the computer over in the
* security guard station.
*
* -Oldbag
* I check 'em every day before
* going home, I do.

* What do you think?
*
* -Maya
* That photo the detective was
* talking about is the problem
* here.
*
* -Phoenix
* Well, that's hard to say,
* without seeing the actual
* photo ourselves.
*
* -Phoenix
* But if it is Powers in that
* photo, his alibi is shot.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Photographic proof"**********
*
* -Phoenix
* Only one person went to the
* scene of the crime before
* the murder took place.
*
* -Phoenix
* And there's a photograph
* to prove it.
*
* -Maya
* I guess it makes sense
* that that person is the
* killer then.
*
* -Maya
* What do we do, Nick?
*
* -Phoenix
* Maybe there was someone else
* who could have gone to the
* scene other than Powers?
*
* -Phoenix
* Let's take a look.
*
* -Phoenix
* Maybe that security lady
* missed someone?
*
* -Maya
* On thing's for sure, if
* there are any clues, they'll
* be in that studio.

Apparently they have

Hmm... right.

Look pal, that camera takes

-Gumshoe
And it took a picture
of Will Powers!

-Phoenix
I have to ask him
about that photograph!

-Maya
Oh well.
Let's try again later.

***Examine security guard*******************

No one's here this soon

***Examine dressing room door***************

* Maybe we can find something

* You never know! There might

********************************************

***Examine nearest table********************
*
* -Phoenix
* The remains of yesterday's

*
* -Phoenix
* Everyone was probably too

*
* -Phoenix
* There's a t-bone on one of

*
* -Maya
* Mmm! T-bone steak!
* That would have hit the spot.
*
* -Phoenix
* You just had a burger!
*
* -Maya
* Yeah, but I have a second

*
* -Phoenix
* (What!?)
*
********************************************

***Examine bicycle**************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Looks like one of those

*
* -Phoenix
* I dunno about these.
* I mean, what's the point?

* -Maya
* It makes it a lot easier

* Don't people cycle to

***Examine backdrop*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* There's a half-finished

* The metal grate on the drain

* That's a pretty big drain.

That white tape!
It's so... so real!

Well, the Evil Magistrate

And the Steel Samurai

The murder weapon was the

***Examine body outline*********************
*
* -Phoenix
* They outlined where Jack
* Hammer's body lay with tape.
*
* -Phoenix
* His body was found still
* inside the Evil Magistrate
* costume.
*
* -Phoenix
* I guess that's why the head
* part looks like a helmet.
*
* -Phoenix
* Funny, I expected a spear

* -Penny
* I was the only assistant

*
* -Maya
* Only one assistant!?
*
* -Penny
* Yes, well, the studios aren't

*
* -Penny
* And yesterday was only
* rehearsal for our action
* sequences.
*
* -Maya
* I see. Neat!

* In the morning we went through

* WP and Hammer were there,

*
* -Phoenix
* The employee area--that's
* where Powers's dressing
* room is, right?
*
* -Penny
* Yes, that's the place.
*
* -Penny
* After eating lunch there,
* Mr. Hammer went to Studio One.
*
* -Penny
* Then I saw WP go into
* his dressing room.
*
* -Penny
* But I didn't see either
* of them after that.

***Talk about "Will Powers******************

*
* -Phoenix
* W-what kind...? No, no, I'm

AFTER TALKING ABOUT EVERYTHING

-Maya
What do we do, Nick?
We haven't found anything.

-Maya
If WP was the only one
who came to the studio...

-Maya
Then he has to be the
killer! They even have
a photograph...

-Phoenix
Hmm...

-Penny
Umm...

-Penny
Sorry... I know
you're busy.

-Phoenix
Not really.

-Penny
Actually, there's been
something bothering me.

-Maya
Ah hah!

-Maya
That's what I'm talking about!
A clue! A lead!

-Penny
Well, I don't know about that,
but that day, just after noon,
I sensed someone was here...

-Phoenix
You "sensed"?

-Penny
Yes, several times.

-Phoenix
Some other studio employees,
maybe?

-Penny
No, I don't think so.

-Penny
The only thing we had
scheduled was an action
scene run-through.

-Penny
I was the only assistant
here that day.

-Penny
I have a feeling it was
someone from... outside.

-Phoenix
R-really!?

-Maya
But wait, if someone
had come in here...

-Maya
Wouldn't that security
lady have noticed them?

-Phoenix
Yeah, you're right.

-Penny
I'm sorry I don't have
any better information
than that.

-Maya
No, thanks! That helps
us a lot. Anything helps.

-Maya
Let's go put that security
lady on the spot!

***Talk about "Sensing someone"*************

* -Phoenix
* So you sensed that someone

AFTER OBTAINING PHOTO

-Maya
Hey, hey, Nick!

-Maya
Can't we use this photo
as evidence for the trial?

-Phoenix
Yeah.

-Maya
We'll put that security
lady in her place with this!

-Phoenix
Right, we'll put her in her
place...

-Maya
Hey, that's what I said!
Anyway...

-Maya
Let's show her this photo
and see what she says!

-Phoenix
Wait. Let's not.

-Maya
Why not?

-Phoenix
It's never a good idea to
reveal your hand to the
enemy too soon.

-Maya
Nick! You're craftier than
I gave you credit for.

-Maya
Why, you could be the next...
Evil Magistrate!

-Phoenix
Hey! Why do I have
to be the villain.

-Maya
Relax, it was just a joke!
So, are we done for today?

-Phoenix
I think this photo is
what we needed for the
trial.

-Phoenix
Still, it'd be better if we
had some idea who the real
killer was!

-Phoenix
Maybe it really is
that security lady...?

|EPISODE 3 - TURNABOUT SAMURAI|
|DAY 2 - TRIAL                |
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

October 18, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 4

-Judge
The court is now in
session for the trial
of Mr. Will Powers.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution is ready,
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
The defense is ready,
Your Honor.

-Judge
Very well. Mr. Edgeworth, your
opening statement, please.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution will show the
court that at 2:30 PM
on October 15, the defendant,

-Edgeworth
Mr. Will Powers, killed
fellow actor Jack Hammer at
Studio One of Global Studios.

-Edgeworth
It is impossible for anyone
else to have committed this
heinous crime.

-Edgeworth
The evidence presented
during the trial will all
point to this fact.

-Judge
Hmm. I see.

-Judge
Very well, I would like to
move on to your testimony.

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth, the prosecution
may call its first witness.

-Edgeworth
First, I would like to call
a familiar face, Detective
Gumshoe, to the stand.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
Detective, if you would
briefly describe this case
to the court?

-Gumshoe
Yes sir!
I'll explain with the
guidemap here.

RETURN HERE FROM BELOW

-Gumshoe
To understand this case, it's
important to grasp the layout
of the studios, see?

-Gumshoe
This here is the Employee
Area.

-Gumshoe
The actors did a run-through
of their action scenes during
the morning here.

-Gumshoe
This is the main gate to the
studios.

-Gumshoe
The security lady that works
at the studios was here at
1:00 PM on that day.

-Gumshoe
Past the security station
there is a gate, see?

-Gumshoe
Past that are the studios.

-Gumshoe
And here it is...
Studio One.

-Gumshoe
This is the scene of the
murder, where the body
was found!

-Gumshoe
Now, on the day of the
murder, October 15, there
were only three people here.

Gumshoe
The victim, Jack Hammer,

-Gumshoe
the defendant, Will Powers,

-Gumshoe
and a young woman, the
production assistant.

-Gumshoe
All the production staff
were in the Employee Area
until noon.

-Gumshoe
Then after lunch, the victim,
Jack Hammer, went to
Studio One.

-Gumshoe
Right after that, at 1:00 PM,
the security lady got to the
guard station.

-Gumshoe
Now, jump ahead to later
that day... 5:00 PM.

-Gumshoe
The production staff came
to Studio One to perform a
rehearsal.

-Gumshoe
Needless to say, the rehearsal
was cancelled...

-Gumshoe
The time of death was
2:30 PM.

-Gumshoe
The "Samurai Spear" found
lodged in the victim's chest
was the murder weapon.

-Gumshoe
That's the case, in brief.

-Gumshoe
Anyone like to hear
that again?

-Phoenix
(Hmm... should I listen to
that whole thing again...?)

***Skip it**********************************
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Listen again*****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* I'm sorry, could you describe
* that one more time?
*
* -Gumshoe
* I shoulda known it would
* be you, pal!
*
* -Gumshoe
* Fine. Once more for the
* mentally-challenged lawyer.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Yeah, yeah. Live it up
* while you can, Gumshoe.)
*
* RETURN TO RETURN POINT (LABELED ABOVE)
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
(I think I can probably
remember that...)

-Judge
So the murder weapon
was a "spear"?

-Judge
How... medieval!

Samurai Spear added
to the Court Record.

-Edgeworth
Your Honor.

-Edgeworth
This case is quite simple
if you ask one question:

-Edgeworth
And that question is:

-Edgeworth
"What did the security lady
at the guard station see?"

-Judge
Understood.

-Edgeworth
Let's call this security
officer to the stand!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
Will the witness declare
her name?

-Oldbag
...

-Oldbag
Hmm?

-Oldbag
My, aren't you
a handsome fellow!

-Oldbag
I'm afraid I'm a bit
flustered!

-Edgeworth
Y-your name, please!

-Oldbag
Oh, dearie! No need for
you to be embarrassed!
Just call me "grandma."

-Edgeworth
YOUR NAME, PLEASE!

-Phoenix
(Seems Edgeworth has a bit of
trouble getting his witnesses
to say their names...)

-Oldbag
Wendy Oldbag, dearie.

-Oldbag
So just call me "grandma."
It's practically my name!

-Oldbag
So even when I was young I
was an Oldbag, but not really
that was just my name dearie.

-Oldbag
Still how the other children
would make fun of me and just
because of my name can you

-Oldbag
believe it? But there was this
boy, the captain of the chess
club in junior high, and when

-Oldbag
he called me an old bag well
I just cried and cried because
I had a crush on him you see--

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
O-objection! I... object to
the witness's talkativeness.

-Judge
Objection sustained!

-Judge
The witness will refrain
from rambling on the stand.

-Oldbag
I was just getting to
the good part, dearie!

-Edgeworth
Perhaps we can get to the
testimony?

-Judge
Now, the witness was stationed
at the main gate on the day
of the murder, correct?

-Oldbag
Yessey I was.

-Judge
And to get to the scene of
the murder, someone would
have to pass by you?

-Oldbag
You know your stuff, dearie!

-Judge
...

-Judge
You may begin your testimony.

-Phoenix
(She sure is one hell of
an Oldbag...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Witness's Account --

(1)
-Oldbag
On the day of the murder,
I arrived at the guard
station at 1:00 PM.

(2)
-Oldbag
Poor old Hammer and the rest
had been doing a run-through
there since the morning.

(3)
-Oldbag
I, well, I had some errands
to run that morning.

(4)
-Oldbag
Anyway, it was 1:00 when
I got to the guard station.

(5)
-Oldbag
I was at the main gate
from then until 5:00!

(6)
-Oldbag
Now, the murder happened
at 2:30 PM, right?

(7)
-Oldbag
Interesting to me, because a
certain man walked right by
me at 2:00 PM.

(8)
-Oldbag
It was Powers!
That man right there, and he
was heading toward the studio!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
You saw the defendant, then?
Hmm...

-Judge
Very well. Let's begin the
cross-examination. Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Witness's Account --

(1)
-Oldbag
On the day of the murder,
I arrived at the guard
station at 1:00 PM.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So up until that time,
   anyone who wanted to
   could go into the studio?

   -Oldbag
   Well, there wasn't a security
   guard at the gate, no.

   -Oldbag
   But the main gate
   was locked, dearie.

   -Oldbag
   You'd need an employee
   cardkey to get in.

   -Phoenix
   (Right... the cardkey
   that I have.)

   -Phoenix
   (So, what she's saying is
   no one who wasn't supposed
   to be there could get in.)

   -Edgeworth
   Was there anyone at the
   studios when you arrived
   at the guard station?

(2)
-Oldbag
Poor old Hammer and the rest
had been doing a run-through
there since the morning.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   A "run-through"...?

   -Oldbag
   They were working out a scene
   between the Steel Samurai
   and the Evil Magistrate.

   -Oldbag
   They got the basics figured
   out by noon, and were to use
   the afternoon for practice.

   -Oldbag
   Rehearsal was supposed
   to start at 5:00.

   -Oldbag
   That's why poor old Hammer
   went to Studio One in the
   afternoon.

   -Phoenix
   (So Powers was in his dressing
   room sleeping... when he was
   supposed to be practicing!)

   -Phoenix
   (Talk about a laid-back
   hero...)

   -Edgeworth
   If there was a run-through in
   the morning, why did you
   only get there after noon?

(3)
-Oldbag
I, well, I had some errands
to run that morning.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What kind of "errands"?

   -Oldbag
   Oh, well, you know.

   -Phoenix
   Answer the question!

   -Oldbag
   Actually... I was watching
   poor Hammer and Powers.
   Observing, you know?

   -Phoenix
   O-observing?
   Weren't you supposed to
   be at the guard station?

   -Oldbag
   Whippersnapper! I told you
   I locked the gate, didn't I?
   I did my job!

   -Phoenix
   (I'm not sure your boss
   would see it that way...)

   -Oldbag
   Anyway!

   -Oldbag
   I always watch Hammer's
   run-throughts. Always!

   -Oldbag
   Never missed one
   in all my years.

   -Maya
   Wow! I want to see a Steel
   Samurai run-through too!

   -Phoenix
   You could quit being a spirit
   medium and take up guard duty.

   -Maya
   Not a bad idea...

(4)
-Oldbag
Anyway, it was 1:00 when
I got to the guard station.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Did you see the victim then?

   -Oldbag
   Did I see poor old Hammer?
   Nope.

   -Oldbag
   He'd already gone to the
   studio before I got back
   to the guard station.

   -Edgeworth
   Tell us what happened next.

(5)
-Oldbag
I was at the main gate
from then until 5:00!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So you were watching there
   the WHOLE time? No breaks?
   Not even a second?

   -Oldbag
   O-of course!
   I am a professional, you know!

   -Oldbag
   Our are you criticizing how
   I do my job!? Whippersnapper!

   -Phoenix
   No, it's just, after seeing
   you eating those donuts in
   the guard station yesterday...

   -Oldbag
   I can watch the gate and eat
   donuts at the same time!

   -Oldbag
   Snipperwhapper!

   -Maya
   "Snipperwhapper"...?

   -Maya
   Old windbag is losing
   it, Nick.

   -Phoenix
   Why don't you raise an
   objection?

   -Judge
   So, the witness was on duty
   through the afternoon,
   the whole time. Very well.

   -Judge
   What did you see?

(6)
-Oldbag
Now, the murder happened
at 2:30 PM, right?

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   How did you know that?

   -Oldbag
   Oh hoh hoh. I have my ways!
   That over-dressed young
   detective told me.

   -Oldbag
   I fed him some donuts and
   he talked and talked...

   -Oldbag
   If you ask me, that detective
   isn't cut out for his job.

   -Edgeworth
   ...

   -Phoenix
   (Poor Detective Gumshoe,
   getting chewed out by a
   security guard...)

(7)
-Oldbag
Interesting to me, because a
certain man walked right by
me at 2:00 PM.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   2:00? You're sure?

   -Oldbag
   Sure as spit!

   -Judge
   Well, who was the man!?

   -Oldbag
   Really, you should try not to
   get so excited at your age.
   You might strain something.

   -Judge
   ...

   -Oldbag
   Now, now, don't get your
   skivvies all in a bunch.
   I'll tell you who it was!

(8)
-Oldbag
It was Powers!
That man right there, and he
was heading toward the studio!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So you saw Mr. Powers?

   -Oldbag
   That's what I said!
   Got wax in your ears, sonny?

   -Maya
   Nick, this is your chance!

   -Phoenix
   Yeah, time to pull out
   the secret weapon...

   -Oldbag
   I'll say it again!
   It was him!

-Maya
Nick...

-Maya
Doesn't she seem like she's
enjoying this a little too
much?

-Phoenix
Windbags love gossiping about
other people's misfortunes.

-Maya
Ugh. Can't she get her
kicks somewhere else?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Let me get this straight,
old bag! Er, Ms. Oldbag!

-Phoenix
You've been saying since
yesterday that you "saw
Mr. Powers," correct?

-Phoenix
But you're talking about
the man in this photo,
aren't you!

-Judge
J-just a moment,
Mr. Wright.

-Judge
Let me see that photo!

-Judge
...

-Judge
What is this, exactly?

-Phoenix
None other than the Steel
Samurai, defender of
Neo Olde Tokyo.

-Phoenix
Ms. Oldbag!

-Phoenix
Is this the "Mr. Powers"
that you saw!?

-Oldbag
Of course! Didn't your momma
teach you any sense, sonny?

-Oldbag
Anyone can plainly see
that's Powers! Right?

-Edgeworth
Um, yeah.

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Umm... well.
I wonder?

-Phoenix
True, Mr. Powers does play
the role of the Steel Samurai!

-Phoenix
But that doesn't mean Mr.
Powers IS the Steel Samurai!

-Oldbag
...!

-Oldbag
I... I know that!
I wasn't born yesterday!

-Judge
No one in this court is
accusing you of that,
Ms... er, witness.

-Phoenix
(He's having trouble calling
her "Oldbag" apparently...)

-Judge
However, you do not have proof
that the person in this photo
is Mr. Will Powers, do you?

-Oldbag
Humph!
Nosy old man!

-Oldbag
Of course I have proof!

-Phoenix
What!?

-Edgeworth
Huh!?

-Phoenix
(Even Edgeworth is
surprised!?)

-Edgeworth
The prosecution would like
to ask the old... the witness.

-Edgeworth
Please make known all the
information in your
possession ahead of time!

-Oldbag
How was I to know everyone
would be so nosy! You should
be ashamed, all of you!

-Oldbag
Anyway, I showed that photo
to the young detective.

-Oldbag
He told me "this isn't any
good as evidence, pal."

-Oldbag
He didn't even give it
a second look!

-Edgeworth
...

-Phoenix
(Wow, old windbag has left
even Edgeworth speechless.
She's good!)

-Judge
Let's hear about your
proof, then.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
--The Man in the Photo--

(1)
-Oldbag
I never say anything
I don't mean, mind you!

(2)
-Oldbag
That morning, during the
run-through of the action
scene...

(3)
-Oldbag
I saw Powers trip and fall!

(4)
-Oldbag
He broke one of the props,
it was a big mess.

(5)
-Oldbag
Apparently, he sprained
his ankle pretty bad.

-Oldbag
Now, look at that picture!

(6)
-Oldbag
You can see he's dragging
his leg! See? Clear as day!

(7)
-Oldbag
That's how I knew it
was Powers. Happy?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm. So he had sprained
his ankle...?

-Judge
Very well. Mr. Wright, you
may cross-examine the witness.

-Phoenix
(She's got to be hiding
something... I'll press
her until she squeals.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
--The Man in the Photo--

(1)
-Oldbag
I never say anything
I don't mean, mind you!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Umm...

   -Oldbag
   Whippersnapper!

   -Phoenix
   (Hey, I haven't said
   anything yet!)

   -Oldbag
   I'll have you know I'm not
   pointing fingers at anyone
   behind their backs!

   -Oldbag
   Everything I've said is on
   the straight and narrow!
   The up and up!

   -Oldbag
   Youth today! Always whining
   about each other, pointing
   fingers this way and that!

   -Oldbag
   It's enough to make an old
   lady want to cry...

   -Edgeworth
   Mr. Wright!

   -Edgeworth
   Please, for all our sakes,
   try not to upset the witness!

   -Phoenix
   (I think Edgeworth has
   met his match...)

(2)
-Oldbag
That morning, during the
run-through of the action
scene...

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Who was present at
   the run-through?

   -Oldbag
   Well, let's see...
   There was Powers, he's
   the Steel Samurai...

   -Oldbag
   Then poor old Hammer,
   the Evil Magistrate.

   -Oldbag
   And... me.

   -Judge
   And what exactly were you
   doing?

   -Oldbag
   Observing! Just... observing.

   -Phoenix
   What about the assistant?

   -Oldbag
   Oh, she was off moving
   backdrops around and such.

   -Phoenix
   (So she didn't see the
   run-through, then...)

(3)
-Oldbag
I saw Powers trip and fall!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "Trip and fall"...?

   -Oldbag
   Yes! And to think, he's
   supposed to be the Steel
   Samurai! What a laugh!

   -Oldbag
   So Powers sprained
   his ankle.

   -Oldbag
   I helped make it better
   for him, of course.

   -Judge
   You... helped make it better?

   -Oldbag
   I kissed it where it hurt.

   -Judge
   L-let's just skip over
   that part, shall we?

   -Phoenix
   Where was the assistant then?

   -Oldbag
   Oh, her? She was cleaning
   up backdrops, I think.

   -Oldbag
   She didn't know about
   Powers's ankle.

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm...)

   -Edgeworth
   You may continue your
   testimony.

(4)
-Oldbag
He broke one of the props,
it was a big mess.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   He broke a prop?

   -Oldbag
   Sure did!
   His own Samurai Spear.

   -Phoenix
   (His Samurai Spear...
   the murder weapon!?)

   -Oldbag
   Luckily I was there with
   my duct tape to fix it.

   -Phoenix
   (This strikes me as a
   significant detail...)

   CONTINUE FOR FIRST TIME ONLY

   -Phoenix
   (I'd better write this
   down in the Court Record.)

   Samurai Spear updated
   in the Court Record.

(5)
-Oldbag
Apparently, he sprained
his ankle pretty bad.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Was Mr. Power's ankle
   badly sprained?

   -Oldbag
   Not so bad that he
   couldn't walk around.

   -Oldbag
   He went to his dressing
   room to rest up after
   lunch.

   -Phoenix
   (Thus the nap...)

   -Oldbag
   Anyway, I saw him dragging
   his foot when he walked.

   -Phoenix
   (Dragging his foot... okay.)

(6)
-Oldbag
You can see he's dragging
his leg! See? Clear as day!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you absolutely sure?
   (Let's take a look at
   that picture again...)

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm... so he was walking
   strangely because he was
   injured...)

   -Judge
   Hmm. It does look like
   he was dragging his foot.

   -Oldbag
   See! And you didn't trust
   me! Whippersnapper!

(7)
-Oldbag
That's how I knew it
was Powers. Happy?

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Still, you can't look at
   this and say it's Mr. Powers!

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   Yes, but only Mr. Powers
   would have been dragging
   his leg!

   -Judge
   He has a point. It does seem
   quite likely that it was
   Powers.

   -Phoenix
   (There's got to be more to
   this. I'd better keep
   pressing her.)

-Maya
Well, Nick? Find any
glaring contradictions?

-Phoenix
Well, she seems pretty
sure that was Powers in
that photo...

-Phoenix
I guess I'll just press
her and see if I can
shake her conviction...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AFTER PRESSING FOR A WHILE

-Edgeworth
I think we've heard enough!

-Edgeworth
Haven't we, Your Honor?

-Judge
Well, there is one thing
that bothers me.

-Edgeworth
Which is?

-Judge
Where is this "Steel Samurai"
costume now?

-Edgeworth
Umm... hmm.

-Edgeworth
Actually, well...
We couldn't find it.

-Edgeworth
We're looking, though.

-Judge
Hmm...

-Edgeworth
Anyway, that's not important!

-Edgeworth
The witness did see
the Steel Samurai, yes.

-Edgeworth
And it is clear that the
person in the Steel Samurai
suit was Mr. Will Powers!

-Judge
Hmm... I suppose that's right.

-Phoenix
(Are you sure you're
sure, Your Honor?)

***Object***********************************

-Edgeworth
Will the witness continue

-Oldbag
No need to ask twice!

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Witness's Account, cont.--

(1)
-Oldbag
The time of poor Hammer's
death was 2:30 PM, true?

(2)
-Oldbag
The only person I saw go
to the studio before then
was Will Powers!

(3)
-Oldbag
No one else went there!

(4)
-Oldbag
If they had, I would have
seen them!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
So, if no one else went
to the studio...

-Judge
Then it would have to be this
"Steel Samurai" who did it.

-Judge
Mr. Wright, you may cross-
examine the witness.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Witness's Account, cont.--

(1)
-Oldbag
The time of poor Hammer's
death was 2:30 PM, true?

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   How do you know that?

   -Oldbag
   Eh? Didn't I just
   explain?

   -Oldbag
   I gave donuts to the
   young detective.

   -Oldbag
   And the, after some rubbish
   about it being a "secret, pal"
   he told me everything.

   -Phoenix
   (I see Detective Gumshoe
   shares his fellow officer's
   fondness for donuts.)

(2)
-Oldbag
The only person I saw go
to the studio before then
was Will Powers!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you absolutely sure!?

   -Oldbag
   Oh, quite, quite, sonny.
   Nobody suspicious lookin'
   passed by at all.

   -Phoenix
   (Nobody suspicious lookin'...
   Right.)

(3)
-Oldbag
No one else went there!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What about before you
   got to the guard station?

   -Oldbag
   You mean before 1:00?

   -Oldbag
   Why, everyone was in the
   Employee Area before then.

   -Oldbag
   And I locked the main gate
   so no one could get in.

   -Oldbag
   Not to mention...

(4)
-Oldbag
If they had, I would have
seen them!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you sure!?

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   The witness has answered
   the question!

   -Edgeworth
   Anyone going into the studio
   had to pass by the witness!

   -Oldbag
   That's right, sonny!

   -Oldbag
   You let 'em have
   it, Edgey-boy!

   -Phoenix
   (E-Edgey-boy...?)

   -Edgeworth
   ...

-Maya
Old windbag sure has
balls! Or... well, you
know what I mean.

-Phoenix
Old windbags have a way of
skipping over important
details, after all...

-Phoenix
Or, for that matter,
entirely forgetting them.

-Maya
How convenient.

-Phoenix
(Something for you to
look forward to, perhaps?)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Hold on!

-Phoenix
Look at this photograph
one more time.

-Phoenix
This photo was taken by
the camera at the gate
for the studios, correct?

-Oldbag
Yesiree, sonny.

-Phoenix
So, whenever anyone passes
by here, it automatically
takes a picture?

-Oldbag
And here I thought you didn't
know your head from a hole
in the ground.

-Phoenix
Right...
Anyway!

-Phoenix
It's also true that the
computer in the guard station
records all security cam data.

-Oldbag
Ooh! You know, if you wanted
to work at the studio, we
might have an opening.

-Phoenix
That very computer printed
out this photo.

-Phoenix
Note that on the back of the
photo are printed the words:
[Oct 15, 2:00 PM, Photo #2]

-Oldbag
Even I know that means it was
taken at 2:00 PM on October
the 15th! Really, sonny!

-Phoenix
Actually, I knew that too.

-Phoenix
The issure here is the bit
at the end where it says:
"Photo #2"...

-Oldbag
"Photo #2"...?

-Phoenix
The computer only held
data for one photo on
that day.

-Phoenix
Don't you think that's odd?

-Phoenix
Shouldn't this photo be
"Photo #1" if it really
was the ONLY photo!?

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Judge
Please tell the court what
you mean by this, Mr. Wright!

-Phoenix
Actually, that's what I
want to ask the witness.

-Phoenix
This evidence shows that
not one, but two people
went to the studio that day.

-Phoenix
Yet there is only
data for one of the photos!

-Phoenix
Who could have erased
the data for the other
photo?

-Phoenix
Only someone with access...
the security lady herself!

-Oldbag
Eh!?

-Oldbag
You watch your mouth,
whippersnapper!

-Oldbag
The only person I saw that
day was Will Powers!

-Phoenix
But the camera on the gate
fired twice! That means
two people went by!

-Oldbag
Umm... well, yes... that's
what it would seem to mean...

-Judge
Can the witness explain
this to the court?

-Oldbag
Umm... ahem.
I-I don't understand these
new-fangled computer things...

-Oldbag
Umm... E-Edgey-boy!
Help!

-Edgeworth
Huh!?

-Edgeworth
B-believe me, I want to,
but I don't know what
this means either.

-Oldbag
Humph!
Some help you are!
You're a whippersnapper too!

-Oldbag
...

-Oldbag
...

-Oldbag
Whippersnapper...?

-Judge
Something the matter,
Ms. Oldbag?

-Oldbag
Ah!
That's right!

-Oldbag
I...
I just remembered something!

-Judge
Let me guess...

-Judge
Someone else passed by
the gate... someone other
than the Steel Samurai?

-Oldbag
Er... well, yes, I suppose
you could put it that way.

-Judge
*sigh*
I see.

-Judge
Your testimony, please.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
--The Other Person--

(1)
-Oldbag
Every day, after I finish
my guard duties, I have one
other important job to do.

(2)
-Oldbag
I go through the photos
recorded on the security
computer and check them.

(3)
-Oldbag
I throw out any photos
that aren't suspicious
lookin', you see.

(4)
-Oldbag
Come to think of it, now
I remember throwing out
one photo that day!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
M-Ms. Oldbag!
This is the first I've
heard of this!

-Oldbag
Well, of course, sonny!
I've only just remembered it.

-Judge
Right... anyway,
Mr. Wright, please begin
the cross-examination.

-Maya
Well, I'd say this was a turn
for the unexpected, but I
kind of expected this...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
--The Other Person--

(1)
-Oldbag
Every day, after I finish
my guard duties, I have one
other important job to do.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Another "job"?

   -Oldbag
   T-that's right. I check all
   the people that passed by
   the main gate that day.

   -Oldbag
   I look closely at every one
   of the photos that security
   camera takes.

   -Edgeworth
   Do you backup all of the
   security camera data?

   -Oldbag
   Well, they keep telling
   me too, yes.

   -Oldbag
   But those computers are
   just so frustrating.

(2)
-Oldbag
I go through the photos
recorded on the security
computer and check them.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   How many photos are there,
   usually?

   -Oldbag
   On a day when we're open to
   the public, we get more than
   500 people.

   -Oldbag
   But on filming days
   or rehearsal days... well,
   we don't have much money.

   -Oldbag
   We never get mroe than
   50, and that's a big day.

   -Edgeworth
   Do you backup all of the
   security camera data?

   -Oldbag
   Well, they keep telling
   me too, yes.

   -Oldbag
   But those computers are
   just so frustrating.

(3)
-Oldbag
I throw out any photos
that aren't suspicious
lookin', you see.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   How exactly do you determine
   what isn't "suspicious
   lookin'"?

   -Oldbag
   Oh, you can tell by looking
   at their faces. For the
   most part.

   -Phoenix
   F-for the most part?

   -Phoenix
   This is a murder trial,
   Ms. Oldbag!

   -Oldbag
   Well, I didn't touch that
   suspicious lookin'
   Will Powers's photo, did I?

   -Phoenix
   (I think she's missing
   the point.)

(4)
-Oldbag
Come to think of it, now
I remember throwing out
one photo that day!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Well, who in the heck was
   in that photo you erased!?

   -Oldbag
   Humph.
   A fanboy.

   -Phoenix
   F-fanboy?

   -Oldbag
   Steel Samurai fanboys.
   Real freaks, if you ask me.

   -Oldbag
   They get information about
   the rehearsals from gosh-
   knows-where.

   -Oldbag
   They're always hanging about.
   One was there that day.

   END CROSS-EXAMINATION

-Maya
"Come to think of it"?
Couldn't she think of that
a little earlier!?

-Phoenix
Classic old windbag
maneuver, Maya.

-Maya
Hmm...

-Maya
Might be a useful tactic
to remember for use in my
future career as a windbag.

-Phoenix
(Let's find out more about
this "erased" photo.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
W-wait a second!
Didn't you just say no one
else could get in!?

-Phoenix
"I locked the main gate
so no one could get in"...
Those were your words!

-Oldbag
Well!

-Oldbag
If you must know, there's
a drain that goes into the
Employee Area.

-Oldbag
The grate has been loose
for a while.

-Oldbag
It leads outside, and well,
that's where they come in.

-Phoenix
They come in through
the drain?

-Oldbag
I told you they were freaks.

-Oldbag
Oh, and...

-Phoenix
And...?

-Oldbag
They're kids.
Children.
Whippersnappers.

-Phoenix
K-kids!?

-Phoenix
So, on the photo that
you erased...?

-Oldbag
It was a boy.
Probably 2nd or 3rd grade.

-Phoenix
Whaaaaaaaaaaaat!?

-Judge
O-order! Order!

-Judge
Let me get this straight.

-Judge
You saw two people pass
by the gate on their way
to the studios that day?

-Judge
One was the Steel Samurai,
dragging his leg.

-Judge
The other was a boy who
looked to be in about
2nd or 3rd grade?

-Oldbag
Oh yes, well we see his
type there every day.

-Oldbag
Can't stop 'em.
Can't catch 'em.

-Edgeworth
A boy in 2nd or 3rd grade?
Hmm...

-Edgeworth
I assume it would be hard, if
not impossible for a young boy
to wield the Samurai Spear?

-Judge
Impossible, I'd think.
It's quite heavy.

-Oldbag
Right! As I said, I didn't
pay him much mind.

-Oldbag
That's why I erased the data.

-Maya
Um, Nick?
What's going on?

-Maya
I mean, the boy was there,
that makes him a suspect!

-Phoenix
Yeah, and they're already
trying to "un-suspect" him.

-Judge
I'd like to take a five minute
recess.

-Judge
I want the defense and the
prosecution to consider
this new information...

-Judge
And no forgetting vital
information this time!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

October 18, 11:08 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 3

-Phoenix
Mr. WP?

-Wll
Y-yes?

-Phoenix
Tell me straight: were you
really in your dressing room?
You didn't go to the studio?

-Will
I-I didn't go to the studio!
I was s-sleeping, honest.

-Maya
So who was the "Steel
Samurai" in that security
photo?

-Will
How should I know?

-Will
The Steel Samurai costume
was off in the corner of
the dressing room.

-Will
Anyone could have walked
in and taken it, really.

-Maya
What!?
You should take better
care of that stuff!

-Will
I couldn't imagine anyone
would wnat to steal a
Steel Samurai costume!

-Will
So... where does this
leave me?

-Phoenix
It doesn't look good...

-Will
*sniff*

-Phoenix
You're the only likely
suspect, right now.

-Maya
Nick!

-Maya
W-what are we going to do!?

-Phoenix
First, we play for more time.

-Phoenix
We'll start targeting someone
else that could conceivably
have done this!

-Maya
Right!

-Maya
And it'll take them so long
to shoot us down that we
can get another day!

-Phoenix
Right... but if we pick
the wrong person, we
might lose on the spot.

-Will
You... don't sound very
optimistic.

-Phoenix
I'm not optimistic
at all, actually.

-Maya
Hey, Nick.
It's time.

-Phoenix
Okay. Let's go.
*sigh*

-Will
What does that mean...
Please don't sigh like that!
*sniff*

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
The court will now reconvene
for the trial of Mr. Will
Powers.

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth, will you
present the prosecution's
thoughts on this matter?

-Edgeworth
The prosecution's thoughts
are simple.

-Edgeworth
Nothing has changed.

-Edgeworth
The other person who went
to the studios was a boy
of roughly 10 years of age.

-Edgeworth
The photo we do have may
not be hard evidence...

-Edgeworth
But there is still no one
else that could have committed
this crime!

-Edgeworth
I call for a verdict of
"guilty" for the defendant,
Mr. Will Powers!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Very well. Mr. Wright,
your thoughts?

-Phoenix
The defense disagrees
with the prosecution's
claim.

-Phoenix
There IS another person
who could have committed
this crime!

-Judge
Order!
Interesting...

-Judge
Let us hear who you have
in mind!
However...

-Judge
Be aware that this court
does not look kindly on
accusing the innocent.

-Judge
If you accuse someone who
is obviously innocent, you
will be penalized.

-Phoenix
(Right. Great. As if the
stakes weren't high enough.)

-Judge
So, who was this person
other than Mr. Powers that
could have committed murder?

***The assistant girl***********************
*
* -Phoenix
* It was the assistant!

* -Phoenix
* The Steel Samurai costume

* Wasn't the Steel Samurai

*
* -Phoenix
* Oh.
* (Uh oh. Bad feeling time.)
*
* -Edgeworth
* Remember the testimony
* concerning Powers's injury!!!
*
* -Oldbag
* Powers and poor Hammer

*
* -Oldbag
* Oh, and me.
*
* -Phoenix
* What about the assistant?
*
* -Oldbag
* Oh, her? She was cleaning
* up backdrops, I think.
*
* -Oldbag
* She didn't know about
* Powers's ankle.
*
* -Edgeworth
* The assistant knew nothing
* of Mr. Power's injury!
*
* -Edgeworth
* She could look the Steel
* Samurai look with that
* costume...
*
* -Edgeworth
* But she couldn't walk the
* the Steel Samurai walk!
* She wouldn't have limped!
*
* -Phoenix
* Ungh!
*
* -Maya
* That kind of takes the legs
* out from under that case...
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright.
*
* -Judge
* I'm afrad I have to penalize

*
* -Phoenix
* (Nobody knows...

*
* -Judge

********************************************

-Phoenix
It was the security lady!
Wendy Oldbag!

-Oldbag
W-who!?

-Phoenix
The Steel Samurai is dragging
his leg in this picture.

-Phoenix
That means whoever was in
the suit knew about that
morning's injury.

-Phoenux
Maybe because... they
had been watching the
action scene run-through!

-Phoenix
There was only one person
other than Powers and Hammer
who knew about the injury.

-Phoenix
The security lady, Oldbag!

-Oldbag
W-what!? Whippersnapper!

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Judge
I-is this true, Oldbag!?

-Oldbag
Oldbag!? That's Ms. Oldbag
to you!

-Phoenix
Ms. Oldbag was standing guard
alone at the main gate.

-Phoenix
She was by herself... in other
words, she has no alibi!

-Phoenix
She could have briefly left
her post to steal the
the Steel Samurai costume...

-Phoenix
Then slipped into Studio One,
the scene of the murder!

-Judge
W-why would she go through
the trouble of wearing
the Steel Samurai costume!?

-Phoenix
Simple, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
She knew the camera at the
gate would take her picture.

-Phoenix
If she was in his costume,
she could point the finger
at Mr. Powers!

-Judge
I see!

-Judge
Excellent deductive
reasoning, Mr. Wright.

-Phoenix
(Ohhh yeah, right here!
Sherlock Holmes II, baby!)

-Phoenix
...?

-Phoenix
(That's odd.)

-Phoenix
(Isn't this the part where
Edgeworth pounces...?)

-Phoenix
(Doesn't he usually jump up
with an objection and some
new damning evidence...?)

-Judge
Well, Mr. Edgeworth?
Does the prosecution have an
opinion on this matter?

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
The prosecution has no
meaningful objections
at this time.

-Oldbag
W-w-what!?
What's that supposed to mean!?

-Oldbag
Oh, so you all think
I did it? Is that it!?

-Oldbag
Edgey-boy! Don't just sit
there, do something!

-Phoenix
(What's my move?
Maybe now's my chance to
take this the whole way?)

-Phoenix
The very same reasoning that
makes Mr. Powers a suspect
in this case...

-Phoenix
can be used to cast doubt
on Ms. Oldbag's actions on
that day!

-Oldbag
B-but why would I do something
so horrible to poor Hammer!?

-Phoenix
You forget that Mr. Powers
lacks a clear motive, too.

-Judge
Hmm...
Indeed.

-Phoenix
(That did it. Now windbag
is one of the suspects.)

-Phoenix
(No hard feelings...
I hope.)

-Oldbag
Wait just a minute!

-Oldbag
What about the other person
who went to the studio!?

-Oldbag
The boy! The one whose
photo I erased!

-Judge
He's only a grade schooler
though, as you said.
2nd or 3rd grade, was it?

-Oldbag
Th-that doesn't matter!

-Oldbag
When I was that age, I could
pin my old man in 10 seconds,
tops!

-Judge
Hmm...
Your thoughts, Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
That boy is not the killer.

-Oldbag
What!?
How can you be so sure!

-Oldbag
Oh, or is it be nice to the
kids and mean to your elders
day? Whippersnapper!

-Phoenix
I have proof.

-Oldbag
P-proof!?

Indeed? Then let's

You have proof that shows
the boy could not have
committed this murder?

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
The murder weapon was
the Samurai Spear.

-Phoenix
That very spear is shown
here in this photo.

-Phoenix
How could the boy have taken
the spear? It's impossible!

-Judge
I see!

-Judge
Well, would the witness
care to comment on this?

-Oldbag
Mrph.

-Phoenix
(The windbag... speechless.
This has got to be a first.)

-Judge
Very well!

-Judge
This court will suspend
proceedings on the current
trial for today.

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth, please find out
more about your witness, Ms.
Windy... what was her name?

-Edgeworth
Something "Oldbag," Your
Honor.

-Judge
Then the prosecution will
look further into this
Oldbag before we continue!

-Judge
That is all.
The court is adjourned!

-Oldbag
W-wait a second!

-Oldbag
I'm not going to just sit
here while you run off barking
up the wrong tree... me!

I'm talking!

Oh, great, stop the presses!
The windbag wants to talk!

-Judge
Ms. Oldbag!
What is this all about?

-Judge
Have you omitted something
from your testimony?

-Oldbag
Actually, if you must know,
there's something I was told
not to talk about.

-Phoenix
N-not to talk about?

-Edgeworth
By whom!?

-Phoenix
(Huh? You mean it wasn't
Edgeworth who told her not
to talk...?)

-Judge
W-well, testify!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- My Lips Were Sealed --

(1)
-Oldbag
Global Studios wanted me to
keep quiet about something.

(2)
-Oldbag
There were... some other
people at the studios on
the day of the murder.

(3)
-Oldbag
They said they had "nothing
to do with it," see?

(4)
-Oldbag
So they told me to just
pretend they "hadn't been
at the studios that day."

(5)
-Oldbag
But if you're going to go
accusing me, I'm not letting
them get away scot free!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
M-Ms. Oldbag!

-Judge
This is crucial information!
Why did you keep this from
the court until now!?

-Oldbag
Ain't you been listening?

-Oldbag
They told me to shut my
trap, and I always do what
I'm told.

-Judge
...

-Phoenix
(No, this isn't a bad dream,
Your Honor. Witness the power
of the Oldbag...)

-Judge
Mr. Wright...
Your cross-examination.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- My Lips Were Sealed --

(1)
-Oldbag
Global Studios wanted me to
keep quiet about something.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So, you were told
   not to talk?

   -Oldbag
   That's right! By the studio
   and TV bigwigs, no less!

   -Edgeworth
   Why didn't I hear about this!?

   -Oldbag
   Don't be too hard on yourself,
   sonny. We were all in on it.

(2)
-Oldbag
There were... some other
people at the studios on
the day of the murder.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   W-who were these people!?

   -Oldbag
   Well, the director and
   the producer, for starters...

   -Phoenix
   The... director?

   -Edgeworth
   We should have known
   something was fishy!

   -Edgeworth
   How could they have done a
   run-through of their action
   scene without a director?

   -Edgeworth
   Of course!

   -Oldbag
   Yes, well, I was surprised
   no one asked about it.

   -Phoenix
   So, where were these people?

   -Oldbag
   The director was in the
   Employee Area all morning
   for the run-through.

   -Oldbag
   He joined the producer around
   lunchtime and they had a
   meeting after that.

   -Edgeworth
   Where!

   -Oldbag
   Oh, in the Studio Two trailer.

   -Phoenix
   S-Studio Two...!?
   (There was a Studio Two...?)

   -Oldbag
   Well, if you look at
   the guidemap...

   -Oldbag
   Here it is.

   -Oldbag
   You go through the gate
   and all the way to the left.

   -Phoenix
   (The path where the monkey's
   head was fallen over.)

   -Judge
   Well, Mr. Wright...
   Would you like to continue
   the cross-examination...?

   -Phoenix
   (I think I've already asked
   all my questions, but...)

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Ms. Oldbag!
   This is a trial for murder!

   -Oldbag
   I know that, silly!

   -Oldbag
   Still, they were pretty
   convincing about having
   nothing to do with it.

   -Oldbag
   And... they gave me a little
   bonus on the side.

   -Phoenix
   (So, you got your "bonus"
   and you still talked...)

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm. I think I've asked
   all the questions I have
   to ask...)

   ***Continue cross-examination***************

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So they were actually in the
   studio!?

   -Oldbag
   Yes, the whole day.

   -Oldbag
   When they heard about
   the murder, they beat it
   before the cops came.

   -Edgeworth
   *grumble*
   (I'll kill this woman,
   I swear it...)

   -Phoenix
   (I feel sorry for Edgeworth,
   almost. She really left
   him hanging on this one.)

(5)
-Oldbag
But if you're going to go
accusing me, I'm not letting
them get away scot free!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "Them"...?

   -Phoenix
   W-who were these people!?

   -Oldbag
   Well, the director and
   the producer, for starters...

   -Phoenix
   The... director?

-Maya
Nick! I guess pressing her
was the right thing to do!

-Maya
For an old windbag, she sure
likes keeping secrets...

-Maya
Let's get as much information
as we can!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
We have learned there were
others at Global Studios
on the day in question.

-Phoenix
The director and the
producer and, er, some
bigwigs, were all present.

-Phoenix
Yet, as we stand here, they
have not been questioned!

-Phoenix
I hold that it is impossible
to declare a verdict on the
defendant, Mr. Powers!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
The corut acknowledges the
defense's point.

-Judge
The prosecution will gather
more information about the
witness, Ms. Oldbag...

-Judge
and more information
about these other people
we have just been told of!

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
I understand, Your Honor.

-Judge
This ends the day's
proceedings in the
trial of Mr. Will Powers.

-Judge
That is all.
The court is adjourned!

Defendant Lobby No. 3

-Will
Th-thank you so much,
Mr. Wright.

-Will
I was right to ask you
to defend me.

-Maya
Aww, really, it's nothing.
*grin*

-Maya
Oh, or should I...
*sniff*

-Phoenix
We'll be going down to the
studios to do some more
investigation.

-Phoenix
We have to find out more
about this director and
producer.

-Phoenix
They'll be turning up in the
next trial as witnesses
for certain.

-Phoenix
So now's my chance to get
material for the
cross-examination!

-Maya
So, Nick...

-Maya
Have we figured out just
who it was in that Steel
Samurai costume?

-Maya
Could it really have
been old windbag?

-Phoenix
What do you think,
Mr. Powers?

-Will
I don't think it
was her, really.

-Maya
Neither do I, Nick.

-Phoenix
Y-yeah, I know! Look, I was
just buying time back there.

-Phoenix
Someone had to be the bad
guy for a bit to take the
pressure off Mr. Powers.

-Maya
Poor old windbag...
I feel kinda sorry for her.

-Phoenix
Well, she wasn't winning any
points in there, with or
without my accusation.

-Phoenix
Okay, let's get down
to the studios.

-Maya
Right! We'll be back to
visit you soon...

-Will
Th-thanks.
Thanks, guys. *sniff*

Whew, what a day.

-Maya
This is no time for
relaxing, Nick!

-Maya
Say, you think WP's
got a chance?

-Phoenix
I guess that really depends
on the people we found out
about in today's trial.

The director and producer...?

Yeah, them.

Well, what are we doing
here then!? Let's get to

* Hey, you still have

* Well, we couldn't get

* You know, what if this

*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah. It's hard to say.
* We don't really know anyone

*
* -Phoenix
* I seriously doubt it was
* that old windbag.
*
* -Maya
* So Mr. Powers is... lying?

* He really doesn't seem the

Visitor's Room

-Will
Oh, Mr. Wright!
Thank you for earlier.

-Phoenix
Not at all. We got lucky,
to tell the truth.

-Maya
You can say that again!

-Phoenix
Let's not.

-Maya
So, WP!

-Maya
Do you have any leads
that might get us going
in the right direction?

-Will
Hmm...

-Will
S-sorry, but no.

-Maya
Be sure to tell us anything
that comes to mind, no matter
how small.

-Phoenix
We can't rely on getting
lucky again tomorrow.

-Will
Y-yes... *sniff*

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Examine security guard*******************
*
* -Phoenix
* This guard monitors

********************************************

***Present Cardkey**************************
*
* -Phoenix
* We found this cardkey
* in your dressing room.
*
* -Will
* Oh, that's mine, yes.
*
* -Maya
* Can people outside the
* studios get these cards?
*
* -Will
* I don't think so.
*
* -Will
* Even I have to return
* the card.
*
* -Will
* Once the show's done
* filming, that is.
*
* -Maya
* Huh...
*
********************************************

***Present Powers's(?) Photo****************

* Y-yes...?

* This really, truly, absolutely

*
* -Will
* R-right. *sniff*
*
* -Will
* I was sleeping in my

* whole time, honest.
*
* -Phoenix
* But who else could
* have worn it!?
*
* -Maya
* Your costume was in
* your dressing room?
*
* -Will
* Yes.
*
* -Will
* I guess they snuck in and
* took it while I was asleep.
*
* -Phoenix
* (But who!?)
*
********************************************

***Present Samurai Spear********************
*
* -Phoenix
* Regarding the murder weapon...
*
* -Will
* Yes?
*
* -Phoenix
* Is it heavy, that spear?
*
* -Will
* It's pretty hefty, yeah.
*
* -Will
* I don't think the average
* person would be able to
* swing it around effectively.
*
* -Phoenix
* Hmm...
*
* -Maya
* And... that's the spear that
* broke or something during
* the morning run-through?
*
* -Will
* Oh yes, I goofed on a round
* kick, you see...
*
* -Will
* I broke the spear.
*
* -Will
* The security lady fixed
* it for me right away though.
*
* -Maya
* With duct tape. We heard.

********************************************

***Talk about "The fanboy"******************
*
* -Phoenix
* Do, er, "fanboys" sneak
* into the studios often?
*
* -Will
* No, not that I know of.
*
* -Will
* That security lady's
* pretty strict with them.
*
* -Maya
* But, in today's testimony,
* didn't she say they were
* often hanging around?
*
* -Will
* The kids really, really
* love the Steel Samurai.
*
* -Will
* They sneak past when she's
* not looking, I guess.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The director"****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Was the director present
* at the morning run-through?
*
* -Will
* Y-yes, yes he was.
*
* -Will
* He was directing how the
* Steel Samurai and the Evil
* Magistrate should move.
*
* -Maya
* Why didn't you tell
* us that before!?
*
* -Will
* W-well, just, the studio
* asked us to keep quiet...
*
* -Maya
* That has nothing to
* do with this!
*
* -Maya
* I hate to repeat myself,
* but Nick here is a newbie
* lawyer! Fresh off the bar!
*
* -Maya
* When he loses, he's
* going to lose big!
*
* -Will
* I... I see. *sniff*
*
* -Phoenix
* (Whose side is she on!?)

* -Maya
* You aren't hiding anything
* else from us, are you!?
*
* -Will
* N-no, I sure hope not.

No one's here.

-Phoenix
Right, now that they have
Ms. Oldbag in custody.

-Phoenix
I guess they don't have anyone
else to replace her...

-Maya
H-hey! In the guard station!
Look! She left her donuts!

-Maya
...

-Maya
...

-Maya
What?
I wasn't going to eat them!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Examine guard station********************
*
* -Phoenix
* The security guard station.
*
* -Phoenix
* Ms. Oldbag must like junk

********************************************

***Examine computer*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* The computer that runs the

***Examine main gate************************
*
* -Phoenix
* The main entrance

October 18
Studio One Entrance

-Maya
Hey, Nick.

-Maya
It looks like Detective
Gumshoe isn't here today.

-Phoenix
You're right.

-Phoenix
He's probably up to his neck
in paperwork after the
commotion at today's trial.

-Maya
So, Nick...

-Maya
Remember that "Studio Two"
we heard about at the trial
today?

-Maya
It was down that path
with the fallen tree, right?

-Phoenix
Yeah, I think that's
what they said.

-Maya
Maybe the director and
the rest of them are
there today?

-Maya
Now's our chance, Nick!
Let's check it out!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Examine bench****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* I'm bushed.
* Maybe I'll sit down here
* for a bit.
*
* -Maya
* This is exactly why I don't
* want to get old, ever.
*
* -Phoenix
* H-hey! I'm still young!
* I'm just tired!
*
* -Maya
* Nick, when you start having
* to say "I'm still young,"
* you know it's all over.
*
* -Phoenix
* (But... but I AM still young!)
*
********************************************

***Examine camera***************************
*
* -Phoenix
* That's the security camera
* that automatically takes
* pictures of people here.
*
* -Phoenix
* It took two pictures on the
* day of the murder, before
* the actual time of death.
*
* -Phoenix
* One of them was the Steel
* Samurai. The other was
* a grade school boy.
*
* -Phoenix
* It doesn't seem to be switched
* on today.
*
********************************************

***Examine WELCOME sign*********************
*
* -Maya
* It says "Welcome."
*
* -Phoenix
* They let people in here
* when they're not filming,
* right?
*
* -Maya
* Nick! Let's come here
* some day! Whaddya say?
*
* -Phoenix
* Sure, if that security lady
* lets us in.
*
********************************************

***Examine mascot***************************
*
* -Phoenix
* The studio mascot.
*
* -Phoenix
* Apparently it's a monkey
* of some kind.
*
* -Phoenix
* I've never seen a monkey
* with a nose like that before!
*
* -Maya
* Why don't they
* put his head back on?
*
* -Maya
* Maybe we should ask
* that assistant?
*
* -Phoenix
* I'm not sure we really
* want her fixing anything.
*
* -Phoenix
* And you'd probably need
* a crane to move that thing.
*
* -Maya
* Probably so.
*
********************************************

***Examine path to the left*****************
*
* -Phoenix
* In the trial, they said
* Studio Two was down this path.
*
* -Phoenix
* The monkey head is in the way,
* but we should be able to
* get by it without a problem.
*
* -Maya
* This monkey head
* is real heavy!
*
* -Phoenix
* Well, it did knock that tree
* over when it fell.
*
* -Maya
* Both of these, the monkey head
* and the tree, fell the day
* of the murder, didn't they.
*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah, that's what Detective
* Gumshoe said.
*
********************************************

***Examine Studio One entrance**************
*
* -Phoenix
* The entrance to Studio One.

***Examine backdrop*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Looks like a backdrop
* for a stage.
*
* -Phoenix
* This must be used in
* the Steel Samurai show.
*
* -Maya
* Of course! That's the
* mountain, Neo Fujiyama!
*
* -Phoenix
* Doesn't the Steel Samurai take
* place in Olde Tokyo? Can you
* even see Mt. Fuji from there?
*
* -Maya
* Not Olde Tokyo, Nick!
* "Neo" Olde Tokyo!
*
********************************************

***Examine white board**********************
*
* -Pheonix
* That's for reflecting light.
* They call it a reflecting
* screen or something like that.
*
* -Maya
* Huh.
*
* -Phoenix
* What? Where's your
* enthusiasm for all
* things entertainment?
*
* -Maya
* Well, lighting is fine, but
* I'd want to be the director.
* Or maybe the Steel Samurai!

Studio Two Entrance

-Maya
This... is Studio Two?

-Phoenix
I thought so...

-Maya
It doesn't really look
much like a "studio,"
does it?

-Phoenix
No, that it does not.

-Maya
Hey...
There's a trailer over there.

-Phoenix
It looks pretty sturdy
for a movie set trailer.

-Maya
Are we sure this is
a studio?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Examine van******************************
*
* -Phoenix
* A light van for moving
* staff and equipment around.
*

* They've kept it in pretty

*
* -Maya
* Well, let's go for a drive!
*
* -Phoenix
* Sure... if I had a license.
*
* -Maya
* Nick! You don't have

***Examine incinerator**********************
*
* -Phoenix
* An incinerator. Apparently
* they just put this one in.
*
* -Phoenix
* It's already covered in soot.
* They must not clean it much.
*
********************************************

***Examine "2"******************************
*
* -Phoenix
* There's a big "2" painted
* here.
*
* -Maya
* Probably because this
* is Studio Two?
*
* -Phoenix
* Probably...
* Though it doesn't look
* anything like a studio.
*
********************************************

***Examine table****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Looks like two people
* ate here.
*
* -Phoenix
* There's nothing left

* Hey, so they ate t-bone
* steaks too.
*
* -Phoenix
* What is it with

*
* -Maya
* Hey! There's always room

Look, it's that assistant
girl.

-Maya
Hey!

-Penny
Hi... WP's lawyers, right?

-Penny
I heard about the trial!
Great job, guys!

-Phoenix
Oh? Oh hoh hoh.
Don't mention it.

-Penny
Is it true they caught
the security lady!?

-Phoenix
Oh! Oh... oh hoh hoh!

-Penny
Actually, she just
called me.

-Penny
She told me to cover
up that drain...

-Phoenix
You mean that one?

-Phoenix
(Wow, what a mess...)

-Penny
I... I know...

-Penny
I'm not so good with
handiwork. Some
assistant, right?

-Maya
Yeah, but you do work on
the props, and the back-
drops, right?

-Penny
R-right.

-Penny
Just... lots of times they
end up looking worse than
they did before I fixed them.

-Maya
Oh? Oh! Well, I'm sure these
things happen. Nothing to
worry yourself about!

-Penny
You're right!
I won't!

-Phoenix
(Personally, I think she
should worry at least
a little bit more...)

-Penny
Um, if you'll excuse me,
I have to go to the
guard station.

-Penny
I'm supposed to fill
in for Ms. Oldbag.

Maya
Right! See you later, then!

-Penny
Good luck with your
investigation.

* -Maya
* Hey...
* Hey, Nick!
*
* -Maya
* If that drain's covered,

*
* -Phoenix
* Uh, yeah. I think that

*
* -Maya
* I feel kinda sorry

This is where the Steel

on the day of the murder.

-Phoenix
That's what Mr. Powers
says, at least.

-Phoenix
I guess they snuck in and
took it while he was sleeping.

-Maya
But Nick, what if Mr. Powers
hadn't been sleeping?

I wonder what the killer
was planning on doing then?

Huh...

Kind of an "alternative

*
* -Maya
* Oh. My. God.
*
* -Maya
* That movie was the best! It's

* Perhaps I didn't

*
* -Phoenix
* It's starting to look like it.

AFTER TALKING ABOUT EVERYTHING

-Maya
Nick, let's get out of here.
Isn't there someplace else
we have to check?

-Phoenix
Y-yeah.

-Vasquez
Wait.

-Phoenix
Y-yes?

-Vasquez
If you see Manella,
give him this.

-Maya
W-why do we have
to do your errands...!

-Vasquez
...

-Maya
...

-Vasquez
...

-Maya
I... I don't think
I like her. *sniff*

Don't cry. She'll take it
as a sign of weakness.

Alright.
We'll give it to him

One "ook" per hour.
Ook ook ook ook.
Always with the ooking.

This path was blocked from

* You're judging him by his
* looks! You have to look at
* his actions, at his life!
*
* -Phoenix
* (I'm being lectured on life
* by a grade schooler...)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "What happened"***************
*
* -Phoenix
* You were here on the day
* of the... incident, right?
*
* -Cody
* Yeah...
*
* -Phoenix
* Did you see anything
* unusual?
*
* -Cody
* ...
*
* -Mia
* Cody.
*
* -Cody
* !
*
* -Mia
* Cody, he needs to know because
* he's fighting for justice.
*
* -Mia
* Isn't that the Steel Samurai's
* motto? "For great justice"?
*
* -Mia
* You have to help us fight
* for great justice, too.
*
* -Cody
* I...
* I saw...
*
* -Cody
* I saw everything!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Well, well...
* We might get some useful
* information out of him yet.)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "What you saw"****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Cody... I need to ask
* you something very
* important.
*
* -Phoenix
* What did you see on the
* day of the incident?
*
* -Cody
* ...
*
* -Cody
* I got here that day
* around 2:00...
*
* -Cody
* I had to come in through
* the woods out back so that
* old lady wouldn't see me.
*
* -Cody
* I got kinda lost, though.
* I was in there for maybe
* a half hour or so.
*
* -Cody
* Then I finally got
* to the studio.
*
* -Cody
* After that...
*
* -Mia
* What is it, Cody?
*
* -Cody
* Th-the Steel Samurai killed
* the bad guy!
*
* -Cody
* He used his Samurai Spear!
* Just like always! One shot,
* one kill!
*
* -Cody
* It happened so fast...
* I got scared.
*
* -Cody
* I went home after that.
*
* -Phoenix
* I... I see.
* It must have been hard
* for you.
*
* -Cody
* Man, you say those nice things
* but it's so obvious you aren't
* speaking from the heart.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Umm... right.)
* Mia?
*
* -Mia
* Yes?
*
* -Phoenix
* I think we can say for sure
* this means the Steel Samurai
* did it.
*
* -Mia
* True enough.
*
* -Phoenix
* And the director has an
* alibi, so it wasn't him.
*
* -Mia
* Indeed.
*
* -Phoenix
* So... the only person left
* who it could have been is
* Will Powers!
*
* -Mia
* ...
*
* -Mia
* I have to admit, it's kind
* of a shock.
*
* -Mia
* But if you put this boy on
* the witness stand, your client
* will be "guilty" for sure.
*
* -Phoenix
* Let's not call him then...
*
* -Mia
* I think that would be wise.
* Best to leave this one alone.
*
* -???
* Not so fast, pal!
*
* -Gumshoe
* I heard everything!
*
* -Gumshoe
* This boy here's
* a key witness!
*
* -Gumshoe
* And he's under police
* protection, starting now!
*
* -Gumshoe
* C'mon, son.
*
* -Gumshoe
* You've got a rendezvous
* with me down at the precinct!
*
* -Cody
* No! I ain't going!
*
* -Cody
* Waah!
*
* -Mia
* ...
*
* -Mia
* That didn't go so well.
*
* -Mia
* We're back to zero leads.
*
* -Mia
* And now we have a serious
* handicap in court.
*
* -Phoenix
* W-what're we going to do, Mia!
*
* -Mia
* Well, hmm...
*
* -Mia
* I... really need to be going.
*
* -Mia
* Don't worry, Phoenix.
* I'm sure you'll be fine!
*
* -Phoenix
* Whoa whoa whoa!
*
* -Phoenix
* C-come to the trial
* tomorrow, please!
* I need you there!
*
* -Mia
* Phoenix, can I ask you
* something?
*
* -Mia
* Do you really believe
* that Mr. Powers is innocent?
*
* ***I believe********************************
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Of course he is!
* *
* * -Mia
* * ...
* *
* * -Mia
* * That's all I wanted to hear.
* *
* * -Mia
* * Excellent.
* * I'll see you in court, then.
* *
* * CONTINUE
* *
* ********************************************
*
* ***I don't know*****************************
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * (I never expected things to
* * go this badly for Powers's
* * case...)
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * (I'm not sure we can
* * win this one.)
* *
* * -Mia
* * Phoenix?
* *
* * -Mia
* * If you don't believe
* * him, who will!?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * (Uh oh, she's mad.)
* *
* * -Mia
* * Oh well...
* * I'll see you in court
* * tomorrow then.
* *
* * CONTINUE

|EPISODE 3 - TURNABOUT SAMURAI|
|DAY 3 - TRIAL                |
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

October 19, 9:42 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 1

-Will
...

-Will
...

-Will
Umm... Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Yes?

-Will
Why do you look
so... unhappy?

-Phoenix
O-oh! Oh, nothing!
Eh heh heh.

-Phoenix
Really, it's nothing.

-Phoenix
Right, Mia?

-Phoenix
(Uh oh. She looks even
unhappier...)

-Mia
Phoenix.

-Mia
Your client is now practically
a dead man walking...

-Mia
Perhaps that's why I feel
particularly close to him.

-Phoenix
This is no time for dead-
people jokes, please.

-Mia
You know we're going into this
trial utterly defenseless.

-Mia
Yet, if Mr. Powers is
truly innocent...

-Mia
We should be able to find
something overlooked in the
evidence to prove it.

-Phoenix
Something "overlooked"...?

-Mia
We have to find something,
Phoenix, today.

-Mia
It's that, or lose the trial.

-Phoenix
(This isn't going to be easy.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

October 19, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 4

-Judge
The court is now in
session for the trial
of Mr. Will Powers.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution is ready,
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
The defense is ready,
Your Honor.

-Judge
Very well. Mr. Edgeworth, your
opening statement, please.

-Edgeworth
An unexpected fact has come
to the attention of the court.

-Edgeworth
Yesterday, we learned that
there were other people
present at the studios!

-Edgeworth
Today, I would like to show
evidence proving they had
nothing to do with the murder.

-Judge
Very well.

-Judge
You may call your first
witness, Mr. Edgeworth.

-Phoenix
(I wonder if that producer
is going to come out...)

-Edgeworth
The prosecution calls
Mr. Sal Manella to the stand.

-Phoenix
(... or that director.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
Will the witness state
his name and profession?

-Manella
...

-Manella
How r00d can j00 get!

-Manella
J00 don't know ME!?

-Manella
I'm the director! I make
the Steel Samurai, n00b! ROFL!

-Edgeworth
...

-Manella
S... Sal Manella.
I'm a director.
Television.

-Judge
Were you at Global Studios
on the day of the murder?

-Manella
Y-yes, Your Honor.

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Very well. Please testify
to the court about the
events of that day.

-Mia
Phoenix.

-Mia
Let's start by picking this
testimony apart.

-Mia
If Powers is innocent,
you know what that means.

-Mia
Someone in the trailer
on that day did it!

-Phoenix
R-right.
(She doesn't waste any time
putting on the pressure!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Day of the Murder --

(1)
-Manella
I was at the studios from
around 9:00 that morning.

(2)
-Manella
During the morning, I was
doing... umm... an action
scene run-through.

(3)
-Manella
It took a lot more time
than I thought it would.

(4)
-Manella
I hear that everyone else
ate lunch in the Employee
Area...

(5)
-Manella
But I had a meeting in the
Studio Two trailer, so I ended
up skipping lunch.

(6)
-Manella
We were in the meeting
until around 4:00...

(7)
-Manella
During the meeting, well,
I'm pretty sure no one
left their chairs.

-Manella
That's about it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
The time of Mr. Hammer's
death was 2:30 PM.

-Judge
And according to your
testimony, you were in
a meeting at that time.

-Judge
Mr. Wright, you may begin
your cross-examination.

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Day of the Murder --

(1)
-Manella
I was at the studios from
around 9:00 that morning.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Is that when you always
   come in to work?

   -Manella
   Oh, oh no. I come in all
   sort of hours. It's the
   "industry" way.

   -Phoenix
   (Yeah, I know all about
   the freaks in your
   "industry"...)

   -Manella
   Still, FWIW, I was pretty
   busy all that day. :(

   -Edgeworth
   Tell us more about that.

(2)
-Manella
During the morning, I was
doing... umm... an action
scene run-through.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   In the Employee Area?

   -Manella
   That's right.

   -Manella
   It was a fight scene between
   the Steel Samurai and the
   Evil Magistrate.

   -Phoenix
   Was anyone else at
   the run-through?

   -Manella
   Oh, yeah. That security lady
   was sitting there watching
   the whole thing. LOL.

   -Manella
   She was cheering on Hammer,
   if you can believe it.

   -Phoenix
   (She certainly has the
   lungs for it...)

   -Phoenix
   Anyone else?

   -Manella
   Nope, just us four.

(3)
-Manella
It took a lot more time
than I thought it would.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why did it go on so long?

   -Manella
   Um, I'm pretty sure j00've
   already heard about this...

   -Manella
   But WP twisted his ankle
   during the run-through, see...

   -Phoenix
   (Oh, right, thus the limp.)

   -Manella
   Which of course lef to me
   missing my lunch. ROFS!

   -Phoenix
   (ROFS? Rolling on the Floor...
   Starving?)

(4)
-Manella
I hear that everyone else
ate lunch in the Employee
Area...

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What exactly did they
   have for lunch?

   -Manella
   T-bone steak!
   The assistant cooked some up.

   -Phoenix
   (Come to think of it, there
   was a plate with some bones
   on it in the Employee Area.)

   -Edgeworth
   "Everyone else" meaning
   that the witness did not
   eat with them.

(5)
-Manella
But I had a meeting in the
Studio Two trailer, so I ended
up skipping lunch.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So, in the end, you didn't
   get to eat?

   -Manella
   Yeah. No steak, at least!
   Can j00 believe it?

   -Phoenix
   That must have been tough.

   -Mia
   Phoenix.

   -Phoenix
   Yeah?

   -Mia
   Doesn't something about
   that seem odd to you?

   ***Not at all*******************************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Well, no, not really.
   * Seems pretty straightforward.
   *
   * -Mia
   * Oh. Perhaps I was wrong, then.
   *
   ********************************************

   ***It's a little vague**********************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Actually, there is something
   * bothering me.
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Mr. Manella, just now you
   * said "steak, at least."
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * So you ate something
   * other than steak?
   *
   * -Manella
   * Yeah, good call!
   *
   * -Manella
   * I had some chocolate in
   * my pocket, which I used to
   * stave off starvation!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * I see...
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (Is that all? I was sure
   * I was on to something there.)
   *
   ********************************************

   ***It's contradictory***********************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Yeah, it does seem odd,
   * now that you mention it.
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Mr. Manella!
   *
   * -Manella
   * H-hmm?
   * W-what do j00 mean? *sweats*
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * When I went to that trailer,
   * I saw something on the table.
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * There were two plates on the
   * table--the same kind of plates
   * as in the Employee Area.
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Who ate lunch there?
   *
   * -Manella
   * M-mmpf!
   *
   * -Manella
   * No, er, ah, um, eh
   * heh. Good call! *sweats*
   *
   * -Manella
   * I, er, I was embarrassed so
   * I didn't mention it...
   *
   * -Manella
   * But I did eat, after all.
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * A t-bone steak, you mean?
   *
   * -Manella
   * Yeah, well, I mean the
   * assistant went through
   * all that trouble...
   *
   * -Manella
   * I brought it to the trailer
   * thinking I could eat it later.
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (Clearly a man who likes
   * to eat. I'd suspected
   * as much...)
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * So, when exactly did
   * you eat it?
   *
   * -Manella
   * We took one break during
   * that meeting.
   *
   * -Manella
   * I, er, wolfed it down then.
   * *drool*
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (A mental image I will carry
   * with me to my grave...)
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (Wait a second...!)
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (If they took a break in that
   * meeting, that contradicts
   * his testimony!)
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (I'll press on that one
   * a bit more...)
   *
   * SWITCH PRESS #7 TO VERSION 2
   *
   ********************************************

(6)
-Manella
We were in the meeting
until around 4:00...

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What were you discussing?

   -Manella
   The Steel Samurai story,
   and our budget.

   -Manella
   Get this! The sponsors turn
   to me and say, "Mr. Manella."

   -Manella
   "Those scripts of yours are
   not appropriate for children."
   Can j00 believe it!?

   -Phoenix
   (Actually, I kind of can.)

   -Phoenix
   So, nobody left the table
   during the whole meeting?

(7)
-Manella
During the meeting, well,
I'm pretty sure no one
left their chairs.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   You didn't take a single
   break?

   -Manella
   Er... well...

   -Manella
   Y-yeah!
   Not a one! *sweats*

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm... what's he sweating
   so much about, I wonder?)

   -Phoenix
   (If only I had an idea...)

   VERSION 1

   -Phoenix
   (I'll wait for one to come
   up and hit him with it
   later.)

   VERSION 2

   -Phoenix
   (Wait a second...)

   -Phoenix
   (Maybe I do have an idea!)

   ***Leave him be*****************************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (No, on second thought,
   * I'm drawing a blank.)
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (If I press too hard in the
   * wrong place, I'll just end
   * up scaring him into silence.)

-Mia
Phoenix.

-Mia
If his alibi holds,
Powers is finished.

-Mia
Press him as hard as
you can and find out
where he's lying!

-Phoenix
R-right!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
Wait a second!

-Phoenix
Mr. Manella, you've just
contradicted yourself!

-Phoenix
Didn't you just tell the court
that you ate that t-bone
steak during a break?

-Manella
Oops! ROFL!

-Phoenix
Well?

-Manella
Umm...

-Judge
Mr. Manella, what's this
all about?

-Manella
W-well, yeah, I guess
we did take a little break.

-Mia
Phoenix!
Great job!

-Mia
If they took a break, one
of them could have gone to
the studio during that time!

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
I call on the witness to
testify to the court about
this break!

-Judge
Very well.

-Judge
Mr. Manella, your
testimony, please.

-Manella
Urk!

-Edgeworth
Heh heh heh...

-Phoenix
(Uh oh. Edgeworth is
laughing...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Break --

(1)
-Manella
Yeah, FWIW, we took a break...
ROFL!

(2)
-Manella
But it was only 15 minutes!
15! That's only 13 in Base 12!

(3)
-Manella
Not enough time for someone
to, say, commit murder in
Studio One! LOL!

(4)
-Manella
That's only just enough time
to eat a t-bone steak, if
you ask me! *steams*

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
I don't think it would even
be enough time for that,
but that's just me.

-Judge
Very well. You may begin
the cross-examination.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Break --

(1)
-Manella
Yeah, FWIW, we took a break...
ROFL!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What time exactly did you
   take this break?

   -Manella
   Hmm...

   -Manella
   I'd say it was from around
   2:30 or so untl 2:45.

   -Phoenix
   (2:30!!!)

   -Phoenix
   (That's the time of death!)

   -Phoenix
   (So he could have gone to
   Studio One, killed Hammer,
   and come back...)

   -Phoenix
   (I guess it's possible,
   time-wise...)

   -Edgeworth
   ...

(2)
-Manella
But it was only 15 minutes!
15! That's only 13 in Base 12!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What were you doing for
   those 15 minutes?

   -Manella
   Eating my t-bone steak!
   What else!?

   -Phoenix
   There were two plates on
   the trailer table...?

   -Manella
   Oh, right. The other one
   was Diva's... sorry, Dee
   Vasquez's plate.

   -Phoenix
   (Dee Vasquez... the producer.)

   -Edgeworth
   To eat a t-bone steak in
   15 minutes... that's quite
   a feat.

(3)
-Manella
Not enough time for someone
to, say, commit murder in
Studio One! LOL!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why is that?

   END CROSS-EXAMINATION

(4)
-Manella
That's only just enough time
to eat a t-bone steak, if
you ask me! *steams*

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   I have to say, you look like
   a guy who gets through his
   meals pretty fast.

   -Manella
   Well, I was facing a cold,
   slightly chewy t-bone steak...

   -Manella
   Even I have to take my time
   eating that kind of food. LOL

-Mia
Well, Phoenix?

-Phoenix
That testimony was too short
to wring any kind of useful
information out of!

-Mia
All you have to do is prove
that he was able to go to
Studio One in that time!

-Phoenix
(Oh, great. Is that all...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
Haven't we had enough of this
pointless line of questioning?

-Edgeworth
Your Honor!

-Edgeworth
The testimony to this point
has made one certain fact
painfully clear:

-Edgeworth
The people in the trailer
had nothing to do with this
murder!

-Edgeworth
It was impossible for any
of them to go to Studio One!

-Phoenix
What!?

-Edgeworth
Something wrong, Mr. Wright?

-Edgeworth
Surely you aren't suggesting
one of the people in the
trailer went to Studio One!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Well, Mr. Wright?

-Mia
Phoenix, this is critical!

-Mia
Think about it before
you give your answer!

-Judge
Do you claim someone from the
trailer went to Studio One?

***I claim it, and claim it loud************
*
* -Phoenix
* (If I agree to let everyone
* in that trailer off the hook
* then the trial is over...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Mr. Powers will be
* found guilty for sure!)
*
* -Phoenix
* The victim was murdered
* at 2:30, the exact time
* of the break in the meeting.
*
* -Phoenix
* With 15 minutes, murder
* is certainly a possibility!
*
* -Judge
* Hmm...
*
* -Judge
* I suppose you might
* say that...
*
* -Phoenix
* (Alright, I've got the judge
* thinking now!)
*
* -Edgeworth
* Tsk, tsk, tsk...
*
* -Edgeworth
* Never a dull moment with
* you, Mr. Wright!
*
* -Phoenix
* What's your point, Edgeworth!
*
* -Edgeworth
* You've been doing your
* homework, haven't you?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Look at the Court Record.
*
* -Phoenix
* The Court Record...?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Surely, you knew that from
* 2:15 to 4:00 the path between
* the studios was blocked?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Mrs. Monkey's head had
* fallen across the path!
*
* -Phoenix
* Whoa! You're right!
*
* -Edgeworth
* True, the break in the trailer
* meeting came right at the
* time of death...
*
* -Edgeworth
* However!
*
* -Edgeworth
* The path from there to
* the scene of the crime
* was blocked!
*
* -Edgeworth
* The fallen Mrs. Monkey head
* barred the way!
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* (It's actually "Mr. Monkey,"
* but Edgeworth has a point...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (And somehow, I feel no
* desire to correct him.)
*
* -Judge
* No counter-argument,
* Mr. Wright?
*
* -Judge
* Then I'm afraid you lose
* this round.
*
********************************************

***No, it's impossible**********************
*
* -Phoenix
* (I don't want to write off
* so many possible suspects...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (But I can't keep claiming
* the impossible, either...)
*
* -Phoenix
* I agree that it was impossible
* for anyone in the trailer to
* go to the studio in that time.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Ha hah!
*
* -Edgeworth
* I thought you might be
* thoughtlessly treading on
* thin ice again!
*
* -Edgeworth
* But I see you had at least
* an inkling of the truth.
*
* -Judge
* What do you mean,
* Mr. Edgeworth?
*
* -Edgeworth
* It's quite simple...
*
* -Edgeworth
* True, the break in the trailer
* meeting came right at the
* time of death...
*
* -Edgeworth
* However!
*
* -Edgeworth
* The path from there to
* the scene of the crime
* was blocked!
*
* -Edgeworth
* The fallen Mrs. Monkey head
* barred the way!
*
* -Edgeworth
* At around 2:15, a strong
* gust of wind knocked off
* the studio mascot's head.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Ergo!
*
* -Edgeworth
* When the people in the trailer
* took a break at 2:30, the
* way to the studio was blocked.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Blocked... by Mrs. Monkey's
* severed head!
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* (It's actually "Mr. Monkey,"
* but Edgeworth has a point...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (And somehow, I feel no
* desire to correct him.)

********************************************

-Edgeworth
I believe we have seen
enough evidence.

-Edgeworth
I would like to relieve
Mr. Manella from the stand.

-Phoenix
(Wh-what? It's over?)

-Judge
Very well.
The court's opinion on this
case is as follows:

-Judge
We have found that there were
several other people in Studio
2 on the day of the murder.

-Judge
However, it is also clear that
none of these people could
have gone to Studio One.

-Judge
They therefore have no
relation to this case.

-Jduge
Furthermore, with regards
to the photo of the Steel
Samurai...

-Judge
Given the size of the costume,
no one other than Mr. Powers
could have worn it that day.

-Judge
All that is lacking is
decisive evidence that
he is the one who did it.

-Judge
If we had that, I'm afraid
I would have to find Mr.
Powers guilty.

-Edgeworth
Your Honor.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution is pleased to
announce that we indeed have
decisive evidence: a witness.

-Judge
Who is this witness,
Mr. Edgeworth?

-Edgeworth
My witness saw the very
moment when the Steel Samurai
skewered the victim!

-Judge
Order! I will have order!

-Judge
I see.

-Judge
The court will take a 10
minute recess, after which we
will hear your witness.

-Judge
Court is adjourned for
recess!

District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 1

-Mia
...

-Phoenix
What do we do now, Mia?

-Phoenix
If everyone in that trailer
has an alibi...

-Mia
...

-Mia
I'm sorry, Phoenix.

-Mia
I guess I was wrong.

-Phoenix
M-Mia!

-Phoenix
Don't tell me you're giving
up! If you give up, what
hope do I have...?

-Mia
...

-Mia
Don't get me wrong.

-Mia
I've never given up on a trial
before, not while there was
a chance.

-Mia
Only one thing became clear
in your cross-examination.

-Mia
The people in the trailer
could not have gone to
Studio One.

-Mia
I thought there was more
to it than that...

-Mia
But I was wrong.

-Mia
That's all there is.

-Will
Umm...

-Will
Er...
What's going to happen to me?

-Will
It kinda seems like everyone
in that courtroom thinks
I did it...

-Will
They think I'm a murderer!

-Mia
Don't worry, Mr. Powers.

-Mia
If you are innocent, we will
prove it. I guarantee it.

-Mia
Leave it to us, and... be
yourself. Be strong.

-Mia
You are the Steel Samurai,
hero to children everywhere,
after all.

-Will
I...

-Will
You...

-Will
Thanks.
*sniff*

-Mia
Okay, Phoenix.

-Mia
This one's for the kids!

-Mia
Let's do it!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

October 19, 11:15 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 4

-Judge
Court is back in session for
the trial of Mr. Will Powers.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution has a concern.

-Edgeworth
As our witness is a grade
schooler of tender years,
and this is a murder case...

-Edgeworth
We worry that the defense
might cause unnecessary trauma
with his cruel questioning!

-Phoenix
(Nice to see Edgeworth taking
the moral high ground...)

-Edgeworth
However, we have no choice.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution calls
Cody Hackins to the stand.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
Your Honor.
Perhaps you could arrange
a box for him to stand on?

-Judge
Oh, r-right.

-Judge
Guard, please bring him a box.
One of those donut crates
should do.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
Will the witness state his
name and grade in school.

-Cody
...

-Edgeworth
Witness!

-Cody
What!? Just 'cause you're all
grown-up don't mean you can
push me around!

-Edgeworth
Mrph...

-Mia
Cody?

-Mia
Answer his question, okay?

-Cody
H-hey, it's you!
The nice lady!

-Cody
I'm Cody Hackins.
I'm in 2nd grade!

-Phoenx
(I get the feeling this is
going to be a long, long
day...)

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth.

-Judge
Please remember that you're
speaking to a child. Try to
be gentle.

-Edgeworth
M-mrrrrph!

-Edgeworth
Witness! Er, I mean,
Cody.

-Phoenix
(He's having trouble with
this "gentle" thing.)

-Edgeworth
You were present, er, you
were at Global Studios on the
day of the, er, incident?

-Cody
You got a problem with that!?

-Edgeworth
Please tell us what you
saw that day.

-Cody
What, pops? You want me to
tell you and gramps with
the beard over there?

-Edgeworth
Just.. Mr. Edgeworth will
be fine.

-Judge
I prefer "bearded gentleman"
myself.

-Phoenix
(A very long day...)

-Judge
Incidentally,

-Judge
photographic equipment is
strictly forbidden in this
courtroom.

-Edgeworth
M-mpht!

-Edgeworth
M-my apologies, Your Honor.
He said he wouldn't testify
if he couldn't bring it...

-Edgeworth
I'd like special permission,
if that's possible.

-Phoenix
Wait, so you're saying you had
to bargain terms with a kid...
and you LOST?

-Cody
Hey! I just got
this new camera!

-Cody
Don't really know how to
use it all that good yet!

-Cody
But I bring it with me
wherever I go!

-Mia
Phoenix.

-Mia
I wonder if he had that
camera on the day of the
murder...

-Mia
You'd better make a note of
it in the Court Record.

Cody's Camera added to
the Court Record.

-Judge
Very well, Cody.

-Judge
Please testify to the court
about what you saw the
day of the incident.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Witness's Account --

(1)
-Cody
I wanted to see a Steel
Samurai rehearsal, just once.

(2)
-Cody
I found a map on the Internet,
and went to the studios that
day.

(3)
-Cody
I went through the woods
off the path, so that old
lady wouldn't catch me.

(4)
-Cody
I was going for the studio.

(5)
-Cody
I got kinda lost on the way,
though. For about 30 minutes.

(6)
-Cody
When I came out by the studio,
there was the Steel Samurai!

(7)
-Cody
It totally rocked!
Right before my eyes,
out came the bad guy!

(8)
-Cody
Of course, the Steel Samurai
took him down! Pow!

(9)
-Cody
If I had my camera with
me, that woulda been the
time for a shot, I tell you.

-Cody
Anyway, I couldn't get into
the studio, so I went home.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Very well. The defense may
begin its cross-examination.

-Judge
And, be gentle. Remember
you're talking to a child.

-Cody
...

-Phoenix
(This kid is tougher than
most adults we see in here,
honestly...)

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Witness's Account --

(1)
-Cody
I wanted to see a Steel
Samurai rehearsal, just once.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   You really like the Steel
   Samurai, huh?

   -Cody
   Course I do!

   -Cody
   I've taped every show!

   -Cody
   And I go to all the live
   performances!

   -Phoenix
   That's impressive.

   -Phoenix
   Have you been to the
   amusement park?

   -Cody
   Course! Duh!

   -Cody
   My Dad always takes me!

   -Phoenix
   (Poor, poor Dad...)

(2)
-Cody
I found a map on the Internet,
and went to the studios that
day.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Was that day the first time
   you'd been to the studio?

   -Cody
   Uh, actually I've been a
   couple of times.

   -Cody
   I never manage to get
   there on a rehearsal day!

   -Cody
   And that security lady's
   always yelling...

   -Edgeworth
   Right, right.
   Please continue.

   -Cody
   Chill, pops!
   I'm getting to it!

   -Cody
   How am I supposed to talk
   with you cuttin' me off
   all the time? Geez!

   -Edgeworth
   ...

(3)
-Cody
I went through the woods
off the path, so that old
lady wouldn't catch me.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "Off the path"...?

   -Cody
   Yeah, you know how the
   studios are in a valley
   there?

   -Cody
   If you go off the path
   a little, there's woods.
   That's where I was!

   -Phoenix
   I see.

   -Cody
   Anyhow...

(4)
-Cody
I was going for the studio.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Did nothing unusual happen
   on your way to the studio?

   -Cody
   "Unusual"?

   -Phoenix
   Did you see this monkey
   by any chance?

   -Cody
   Oh, you mean Mr. Monkey?

   -Cody
   Yeah I saw him, but
   his head wasn't busted!

   -Edgeworth
   So you went straight
   to the studio?

(5)
-Cody
I got kinda lost on the way,
though. For about 30 minutes.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   You got lost in the woods?

   -Cody
   Yeah. I couldn't figure
   out which way I was walking.

   -Cody
   Man, was I relieved when
   I saw the blue studio doors.

   -Cody
   But guess what happened next!

(6)
-Cody
When I came out by the studio,
there was the Steel Samurai!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   The Steel Samurai?

   -Cody
   Yeah, he was standing by
   the studio gate.

   -Cody
   It looked like he was
   thinking about something
   before going in.

   -Cody
   Then he opened up the gate
   and went inside.

   -Phoenix
   I see. What then?

(7)
-Cody
It totally rocked!
Right before my eyes,
out came the bad guy!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What sort of "bad guy" was it?

   -Cody
   A guy. A person.
   Kinda tall. Skinny.

   -Phoenix
   Are you sure it was
   a guy?

   -Cody
   ...

   -Cody
   I dunno.
   He was kinda far away.

   -Phoenix
   (Huh, he's being awfully
   vague...)

   -Mia
   ...

(8)
-Cody
Of course, the Steel Samurai
took him down! Pow!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What happened to the bad guy?

   -Cody
   Huh?

   -Cody
   Well...

   -Cody
   Well, he kinda didn't move.
   Not a bit. Like he was dead.

   -Cody
   I-I guess he's a real pro!
   What a great actor!

   -Phoenix
   Y-yes, I suppose he was.

(9)
-Cody
If I had my camera with
me, that woulda been the
time for a shot, I tell you.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "If" you had your camera?

   -Phoenix
   You mean, you weren't carrying
   your camera then?

   -Cody
   N-no, I wasn't.

   -Cody
   I-it's not like I have
   it all the time!

   -Phoenix
   (Really...?)

-Phoenix
(I guess seeing the killing
freaked him out and he went
home...)

-Mia
Phoenix.

-Mia
Remember, he's a child.

-Mia
Use gentle words...
but be firm.

-Phoenix
(Easy for you to say...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Cody, what you just said
seems, well, a little strange.

-Phoenix
Didn't you say before that
you always bring your digital
camera wherever you go?

-Phoenix
You were quite clear about
that.

-Cody
Huh!?

-Phoenix
Cody, you shouldn't lie here.
You understand that, right?

-Judge
Mr. Wright!
A word with you...

-Phoenix
(Uh oh... was I putting the
pressure on too much?)

-Judge
What is this "digital" camera
contraption you're talking
about?

-Phoenix
It's umm... a digital camera,
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
It's kind of a new sort of
camera.

-Phoenix
(How do I explain that!?)

-Judge
I see.

-Phoenix
Anyway, Cody...

-Phoenix
I can't believe you wouldn't
bring your camera on a trip
to the studios!

-Phoenix
You did bring it, didn't you?

-Cody
Umm...

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
Mr. Wright!

-Edgeworth
How cruel you are, to
terrorize a poor child so!

-Phoenix
I don't care if he's a child
or a prosecuting attorney!
No one should lie in court!

-Edgeworth
What do you mean
"or a prosecuting attorney"!?

-Phoenix
Well, Cody?

-Cody
Wh-what!

-Cody
Yeah, so I had my
camera. So what!?

-Cody
You got a problem
with that!?

-Judge
So, you did have a camera?

-Judeg
And did you use this camera?

-Cody
W-why would I use it?

-Cody
I... I was too busy watching.

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Very well. Please testify to
the court about what you were
so busy watching.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- What I saw --

(1)
-Cody
Y-yeah, I had my camera
with me.

(2)
-Cody
But I was glued to the
action! I couldn't take
my eyes off it!

(3)
-Cody
The Steel Samurai, he goes
for the bad guy... wham!

(4)
-Cody
Then... then the bad
guy stopped moving!

(5)
-Cody
He's so strong!
The Steel Samurai rules!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Ah? Is that all?

-Judge
Well, that was brief.

-Judge
Mr. Wright, your cross-
examination.

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- What I saw --

(1)
-Cody
Y-yeah, I had my camera
with me.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So, why didn't you use it?

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   He's getting to that!

   -Edgeworth
   Relax and listen.

   -Cody
   Umm...

   -Cody
   I didn't use it 'cause
   I was too busy watching
   the real thing!

(2)
-Cody
But I was glued to the
action! I couldn't take
my eyes off it!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So you were watching the Steel
   Samurai. Did you watch the
   whole fight?

   -Cody
   Y-yeah, of course!

   -Phoenix
   You didn't turn away,
   not even once?

   -Cody
   N... no!

   -Phoenix
   Okay, then tell us exactly
   what happened.

   -Cody
   Y-yeah! I'm getting to that!

(3)
-Cody
The Steel Samurai, he goes
for the bad guy... wham!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So the bad guy attacked
   him first?

   -Cody
   Yeah!

   -Phoenix
   What sort of person was
   this "bad guy"?

   -Cody
   I told you, a person.
   He was a person.

   -Phoenix
   How was he dressed?

   -Cody
   ...

   -Cody
   I kinda don't remember.

   -Cody
   I was too busy watching
   the Steel Samurai!

   -Edgeworth
   I see.
   And what happened next?

(4)
-Cody
Then... then the bad
guy stopped moving!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why?

   -Cody
   Huh? Whaddya mean, "why"?

   -Phoenix
   Why wasn't the bad
   guy moving?

   -Cody
   W-well 'cause the Steel
   Samurai brought him to
   justice!

   -Phoenix
   And how exactly did he
   do that?

   -Cody
   H-how did he do it?

   -Cody
   With a Samurai Kick!
   And a Samurai Punch!

   -Cody
   Samurai Chop!
   ... Samurai Slap!

   -Cody
   S-something like that.

   -Phoenix
   (He's still being vague
   about this...)

   -Cody
   What! Don't give me that
   look, pops!

   -Phoenix
   (How should I play this?)

   ***Wait and see what happens****************
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (Yeah...)
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (If I press too hard now,

-Cody
He's so strong!
The Steel Samurai rules!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What did you do after
   the bad guy fell, Cody?

   -Cody
   ...

   -Cody
   Um, actually...

   -Cody
   The fight was so... so intense
   that I got kinda scared.

   -Cody
   So I went straight home.

   -Phoenix
   (Something isn't adding
   up here...)

-Phoenix
(Something about his account
doesn't seem right...)

-Mia
Phoenix.

-Mia
It doesn't seem right
because he's being
deliberately vague!

-Mia
Press him on the facts,
Phoenix! Find out what he saw!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
Cody.

-Cody
Wh-what!?

-Phoenix
Something's bothering me.

-Phoenix
Before you said that you
"couldn't take your eyes
off" the action.

-Cody
Y-yeah? So what?

-Phoenix
Yet you missed the
most important part!

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
What is the meaning of this?
The witness has stated what
he saw quite clearly...

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
You know as well as I do
that he's being vague!

-Phoenix
Tell me, what kind of
murderer uses a "Samurai
Slap"!?

-Edgeworth
M-mmph!

-Phoenix
My point is this:

-Phoenix
Cody, you may have seen
some of the Steel Samurai's
fight...

-Phoenix
But you missed the most
important part: the
killing blow!

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Judge
Mr. Wright!

-Judge
How could this be?

-Judge
Can you explain how he
might have missed something
so vital?

-Phoenix
Um, well... er, that's
the thing...

-Mia
Phoenix!

-Mia
I believe you're on the
right track with this!

-Mia
Think: why didn't Cody see
the climax of the fight?

-Mia
I know you!
You can figure this out!

-Judge
Mr. Wright,
your answer!

-Judge
We have ascertained that
this young boy is a great fan
of the Steel Samurai...

-Judge
Why wouldn't he watch
the climax of the fight?

***He couldn't watch it*********************
*
* -Phoenix
* Because he couldn't watch it!
*
* -Phoenix
* How could he calmly watch
* a murder taking place at
* his age!
*
* -Edgeworth
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Edgeworth
* Just a moment, please...
*
* -Edgeworth
* One thing has become quite
* clear in this boy's testimony.
*
* -Edgeworth
* He did not believe he
* was witnessing a murder!
*
* -Edgeworth
* He was watching the Steel
* Samurai fight, like on TV.
*
* -Edgeworth
* The more real the fight,
* the more he would have
* watched!
*
* -Phoenix
* Umm... huh.
*

********************************************

-Phoenix
Here's my proof!

-Judge
What's that?
The camera...?

-Phoenix
The witness stated that he
recently received this camera.

-Judge
Yes, I'm aware of that.

-Phoenix
He wasn't entirely familiar
with its operation.

-Judge
I'm aware of that, too.

-Judge
Ah!

-Phoenix
Correct! Why would Cody be
looking somewhere else at
the critical moment?

-Phoenix
Because he was looking
at his camera!

-Phoenix
He was trying to take
a picture!

-Cody
Hey!

-Phoenix
Bullseye!

-Cody
W-what's your problem, pops!
You got a thing for picking
on little kids!?

-Phoenix
(Pressing, not picking...)

-Mia
Good job, Phoenix!

-Mia
Cody was lying, clearly.
	
-Mia
Samrt of you to realize there
was no way he could just stand
there, watching his hero...

-Mia
and not take a picture!

-Phoenix
Right!

-Phoenix
Cody?

-Phoenix
There was only one reason
why you would have looked
away from the fight.

-Phoenix
And that was because you
wanted to take a picture.

-Phoenix
But having just received your
camera, you weren't used
to using it yet!

-Phoenix
So, you missed the climax
of the fight. Correct?

-Cody
...

-Cody
...

-Cody
...

-Cody
Yeah.

-Mia
Well, Phoenix.

-Mia
I'll bet you anything he's
hiding more than that.

-Mia
Have him testify again!

-Phoenix
R-right.
(Mia means business!)

-Phoenix
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
The defense would like to
request that Cody Hackins
testify once more.

-Judge
V-very well.

-Judge
Cody?

-Judge
Could you please tell us
about your camera...

-Judge
And about why you didn't
take a picture of the fight?

-Cody
Umm...

-Phoenix
(Welcome to the real world,
kid!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- No Photo? --

(1)
-Cody
Yeah, you're right, pops.

(2)
-Cody
The Steel Samurai had just
escaped from the clutches of
the villain.

(3)
-Cody
So I held up my camera
to take a picture!

(4)
-Cody
But the lens wouldn't open
in time, so I missed it.

(5)
-Cody
Th-that's all that happened.
Yup.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Anything strange in that
testimony, Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
I'm not sure...

-Phoenix
But I'd like to proceed with
the cross-examination anyway.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- No Photo? --

(1)
-Cody
Yeah, you're right, pops.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "Pops"...?

   -Cody
   Yeah, I called you "pops,"
   you spiky-haired geezer!

   -Phoenix
   G-geezer...?

   -Edgeworth
   I'm "Mr. Edgeworth."

   -Judge
   And I guess I'm the "bearded
   gentleman"...

   -Cody
   That's what I hate about
   grown-ups. You'rea ll so
   self-conscious!

   -Phoenix
   Okay, off with the kid
   gloves! Testify, witness,
   testify!

   -Cody
   Yipes!

(2)
-Cody
The Steel Samurai had just
escaped from the clutches of
the villain.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So you did see the
   beginning of the fight?

   -Cody
   Yeah.

   -Phoenix
   Did you notice anything
   unusual?

   -Cody
   Umm... well... uh...

   -Cody
   I guess the Steel Samurai was
   moving a little strange...

   -Phoenix
   (Moving... strangely?)

(3)
-Cody
So I held up my camera
to take a picture!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why couldn't you take
   a picture?

   -Cody
   My new camera has too many
   buttons. I couldn't figure
   it out.

   -Cody
   I tried to take a picture,
   I really tried.

(4)
-Cody
But the lens wouldn't open
in time, so I missed it.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   When the lens opened,
   what did you see?

   -Cody
   Uh... well, a person on
   the ground. And the Steel
   Samurai!

(5)
-Cody
Th-that's all that happened.
Yup.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   That's all?

   -Cody
   Y-yeah!
   I told you, I didn't
   take a picture!

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm... I would have, once I
   got that lens open...)

   -Phoenix
   (Did he really not take
   a picture? Not even one?)

   ***Press him hard***************************

   * -Phoenix
   * (Nah, he definitely would
   * have taken a picture.)

   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Cody!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Listen up, Cody Hackins.
   * I know exactly what happened
   * that day.
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * You took a picture!
   *
   * -Cody
   * ... Hey!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (Bullseye...?)
   *
   * -Cody
   * H-how did you know!?

   * -Phoenix
   * I see through all your

   *
   * -Cody
   * W-wow!
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (This feels great!)
   *
   * -Cody
   * Y-yeah...
   * Yeah, I took a picture.
   *
   * -Judge
   * Perhaps you can change

(5b)
-Cody
I took a few shots, but it
was too late, so I erased 'em.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   You "erased" them?

   -Cody
   Y-yeah!

   -Phoenix
   Why would you erase a picture
   of your beloved Steel
   Samurai, victorious?

   -Cody
   Well... y'know.

   -Cody
   W-why would I want to
   keep a picture like that?

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm... he's becoming less
   and less cooperative.)

   -Phoenix
   (I better find a clear
   contradiction soon...
   or some solid evidence.)

-Phoenix
(How can I pick holes in
such a short testimony?)

-Mia
There has to be something.

-Mia
Dig up the dirt, Phoenix!
Find out what this kid's
all about!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Cody!

-Cody
Wh-wh-what!?

-Cody
Man, every time you saw
"Cody" you follow it with
something bad.

-Phoenix
I just wanted to thank you
for giving me this the
other day.

-Cody
Huh? O-oh... right.

-Phoenix
What was it you
told me then?

-Cody
I go to every live
performance!

-Cody
I always take a picture when
the Steel Samurai lands the
final blow! Whizzam!

-Cody
I got 'em all! I never missed
one! A perfect collection!

-Phoenix
Cody.

-Phoenix
Did you really get a picture
of the Steel Samurai standing
victorious over his foe?

-Phoenix
If you did, I find it hard
to believe that you would
just erase it!

-Phoenix
Wouldn't you keep it for
your album?

-Cody
Ah!

-Judge
Mr. Wright...

-Judge
What exactly is this album?

-Phoenix
It's called "Path to Glory."

-Phoenix
It's a collection of pictures
of the Steel Samurai, all
taken by Cody Hackins.

-Phoenix
He claims it's a perfect
collection of every battle
the Steel Samurai has won!

-Judge
I... I see.

-Phoenix
Don't you find this very
odd, Your Honor?

-Phoenix
Among all his pictures of
the Steel Samurai, none
were taken that day!

-Judge
Order!

-Judge
Mr. Wright.
Have you an explanation?

-Judge
If the Steel Samurai
had just defeated his
adversary...

-Judge
I certainly would expect
to see a picture of it
in this album...

-Phoenix
Exactly my point,
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
.........!
(No... wait... no way!)

-Mia
Phoenix?

-Mia
I think we've finally
discovered the truth.

-Mia
And what a truth it is!

-Phoenix
M-Mia... are we sure
about this?

-Phoenix
Did he actually...?

-Mia
Yes.

-Mia
I'm pretty sure what you're
thinking is right.

-Mia
Tell them, Phoenix.
Tell them what the truth is.

-Judge
Mr. Wright!
Please explain to the court
what is going on here!

-Judge
Why was there no picture in
the album from the day of
the murder?

-Judge
Why would the boy have
erased the photos he took?

***The photos were blurry*******************
*
* -Phoenix
* I believe that Cody Hackins
* is what we call an "artiste."
*
* -Judge
* An... "artiste"...?
*
* -Phoenix
* He didn't like the photos
* he had taken!
*
* -Phoenix
* They were blurry, or maybe
* his framing was off...
*
* -Phoenix
* Anyway, for some reason,
* he erased the data!
*
* -Judge
* Is that right, Cody?
*
* -Cody
* Wh-what do you mean
* "framing was off"!?
*
* -Judge
* It seems the only thing "off"
* is your guesswork, Mr. Wright.
*
* -Phoenix
* Um, uh...
*
* -Phoenix
* Yes, well, I'm sure
* the reall reason is...
*
* -Judge
* Yes? The real reason is?
*
* RETURN TO QUESTION

********************************************

***He erased them by mistake****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Simple, Your Honor.
*
* -Phoenix
* Cody wasn't used to using
* his new camera.
*
* -Phoenix
* He erased those photos
* he took by mistake!
*
* -Mia
* W-wait a second, Phoenix.
*
* -Mia
* If that's your answer, we're

*
* -Phoenix
* Huh? You mean, that wasn't it?

-Phoenix
I can think of only
one reason, your honor.

-Phoenix
The Steel Samurai didn't win!

-Phoenix
That's why Cody deleted
those photos.

-Judge
You mean the Steel Samurai...
lost?

-Phoenix
Well, Cody?
I'm right, aren't I?

-Phoenix
Tell the truth. The bad guy
defeated the Steel Samurai!

-Cody
N-n-n-no way! No!

-Cody
I-it's impossible!
Th-the Steel Samurai
never loses!

-Cody
He never loses to anyone!
Ever!

-Phoenix
Your Honor...

-Phoenix
The witness has revealed
everything with his words.

-Phoenix
There was a reason why
he lied and told us he
didn't take a picture.

-Phoenix
The same reason he erased
his precious photos!

-Phoenix
For Cody, it was inconceivable
that the Steel Samurai could
be defeated.

-Phoenix
However, Cody witnessed
the impossible!

-Phoenix
He saw the Steel Samurai lose!

-Phoenix
Yet to admit what he saw
would destroy everything
he believed in!

-Phoenix
That's why he lied and said
the Steel Samurai won.

-Phoenix
He couldn't handle the truth!

-Judge
O-Order! I will have order!

-Judge
W-witness! I mean, Cody!
Is this true!?

-Judge
W-what did you see?
Tell the court what you saw!

-Phoenix
Cody...

-Phoenix
That day, you saw the Steel
Samurai lose a fight.

-Phoenix
Right?

-Cody
Waaaaaaaaaaaaah!

-Cody
Okay okay!

-Cody
Y-you're right!

-Cody
Th-the Steel Samurai f-fell
down...

Th-then he didn't m-move...

Waaaaaaaaah!

-Judge
Order! Order! Order!

-Edgeworth
What kind of stunt are you
trying to pull, Wright!?

-Edgeworth
The Steel Samurai was the
murderer, not the victim!

-Phoenix
Yet according to your
witness's testimony, the Steel
Samurai was the one who fell!

-Judge
Mr. Wright!
What's going on?

-Phoenix
Apparently, we have all made
a serious error.

-Edgeworth
An... error?

-Edgeworth
What's this all about!?

***Hammer was the victim********************

********************************************

-Phoenix
If you understand what
really happened, it's
actually quite simple.

-Phoenix
At the end of the fight,
the Steel Samurai fell to
the ground, and lay still.

-Phoenix
In other words, the Steel
Samurai was not the killer,
he was the victim!

-Phoenix
Don't you see?

-Phoenix
Jack Hammer was the Steel
Samurai!

-Judge
Order! Order! Order!

-Judge
So, the Steel Samurai
in this photograph...

-Judge
You're saying the man in this
costume was the victim,
Mr. Jack Hammer?

-Phoenix
That's what I'm saying,
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
Jack Hammer was present at the
action scene run-through
that morning.

-Phoenix
Thus, he obviously knew about
Will Powers's foot injury.

-Judge
B-but wait!

-Judge
Hadn't Mr. Hammer gone
to Studio One already?

-Phoenix
That's what everyone thought!

-Phoenix
But remember what Ms. Oldbag
said in her testimony?

-Oldbag
On the day of the murder,
I arrived at the guard
station at 1:00 PM.

-Oldbag
Did I see poor old Hammer?
Nope.

-Oldbag
He'd already gone to the
studio before I got back
to the guard station.

-Phoenix
Mr. Jack Hammer left the
Employee Area after lunch.

-Phoenix
However, no one saw him
going to Studio One.

-Phoenix
Nor was there a
picture of him.

-Phoenix
He waited for Mr. Powers
to take a nap in his
dressing room.

-Phoenix
Then he snuck into the
dressing room and stole
the Steel Samurai costume.

-Judge
...

-Edgeworth
...

-Judge
But why would the
victim do such a thing?

-Phoenix
I... don't know.

-Cody
...

-Cody
I get it!

-Phoenix
?

-Cody
I thought that the Steel
Samurai was moving strange.

-Cody
So it was a different
person inside the suit!

-Cody
Pops!

-Phoenix
Huh, me? What?

-Cody
Actually, there was one
piece of data I saved.

-Phoenix
Data?

-Cody
Yeah, a photo on my
digital camera!

-Phoenix
!

-Phoenix
W-what!?

-Edgeworth
Show us, quick!

-Cody
No way man, not if you're
gonna look at me like that!

-Judge
Now!

-Cody
*sniff*

-Cody
Here...
This is it.

-Judge
...

-Judge
Well, looking at this it's
still a little hard to say.

-Judge
I'm afraid that it could
be anyone in that costume.

-Judge
Your opinion, Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
I agree, Your Honor.
This isn't decisive evidence.

-Judge
I'm sorry, this doesn't look
like it's the proof we need.

-Judge
I'll give it back.

-Mia
Wait, Phoenix!

-Phoenix
Mia? What?

-Mia
Look at that photo once more!

-Mia
That's it Phoenix!

-Mia
That photo is all the evidence
you need to win this trial!

-Phoenix
Wh-what!?

-Phoenix
Y-Your Honor!

-Phoenix
May I see that photo
once more please?

-Judge
C-certainly.
I don't see why not.

-Mia
Phoenix!
Show him!

-Mia
There's a glaring, decisive
inconsistency with the facts
as we know them in that photo!

-Phoenix
(Find the inconsistency
in the photo!)

The number?

-Judge
Ah yes. Well, it's hard to
see, but it looks like a "2."

-Phoenix
Clearly not a "1," Your
Honor, correct?

-Edgeworth
Aaaaaah!

-Phoenix
I believe Mr. Edgeworth
sees what I'm getting at.

-Edgeworth
B-but...

-Edgeworth
Th-that's impossible!

-Judge
Hmm? Eh?
What's this all about?

-Judge
Please explain so that I might
be shocked along with the
rest of the court.

-Phoenix
I'll use the studio guidemap.

-Phoenix
The body was found here,
in Studio One.

-Phoenix
However, what do we see
in this photo taken at the
time of the murder?

-Phoenix
It does NOT say "1" on that
gate in the photo.

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
Here is the true
scene of the crime!

took place in Studio Two!

***The trailer was there********************

The person that the security
guard, Ms. Oldbag saw was
the victim, Mr. Jack Hammer!

-Phoenix
Mr. Hammer, for some reason,
stole a Steel Samurai costume.

-Phoenix
Then he went to Studio Two!

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
This is madness!

-Edgeworth
Jack Hammer is the victim!
The victim!

Why would he steal a

Are you suggesting he did
so to cover up the details

W-well, no, of course not...

* Even if you're not 100%
* sure about this, you have
* to try.
*
* -Mia
* And I think you've got
* proof that's good enough
* to win them over!
*
* -Mia
* Just go for it!
* All or nothing!
*
* -Phoenix
* Your Honor...
*
* -Judge
* Yes, Mr. Wright?
*
* -Phoenix
* Actually... I do have proof.
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
Here's my proof that
Jack Hammer stole
the costume!

***Present something wrong******************
*
* -Phoenix
* *TAKE THAT!*
*
* -Phoenix
* (Wait, no, that can't
* be right...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (I've got to have some proof
* that will knock their socks
* off...)
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright!
* We don't have all the time
* in the world, here.
*
* -Phoenix
* Y-yes, Your Honor!
*
* RETURN TO COURT RECORD
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
This is it.

-Judge
An empty... medicine bottle?

-Phoenix
I found this on the table
in the Employee Area.

-Phoenix
The same table where Mr.
Hammer and Mr. Powers ate.

-Phoenix
The label reads
"sleeping pills."

-Judge
"Sleeping pills"...?

-Phoenix
The defendant, Mr. Powers,
spent that entire afternoon
sleeping.

-Phoenix
He was drugged...
by Mr. Hammer!

-Judge
Wait a moment...

-Judge
That bottle does raise
some suspicions, yes.

-Judge
But there is no proof
that Mr. Hammer used it.

-Phoenix
Your Honor,
I have an idea.

***Test Powers's blood**********************
*
* -Judge
* An... idea?
* Continue.
*
* -Phoenix
* Run a test of Powers's blood.
*
* -Phoenix
* You should find traces
* of the sleeping pills.
*
* -Edgeworth
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Edgeworth
* This much time after
* the day of the murder!?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Even if there were traces
* it still proves nothing!
*
* -Edgeworth
* No blood test could tell that
* Hammer was the one who
* drugged him, Mr. Wright!
*
* -Phoenix
* (He's right. Darn.)
*
* -Phoenix
* (That didn't work.
* Time to try another idea.)
*
* RETURN TO QUESTION
*
********************************************

***Fingerprint the bottle*******************
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Examine Hammer's body********************
*
* -Judge
* An idea, Mr. Wright?
* And that would be?
*
* -Phoenix
* Er... we should examine
* Mr. Hammer's body.
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Hammer...?
*
* -Judge
* I thought that it was
* Mr. Powers who was made
* to take the sleeping pills?
*
* -Phoenix
* I-indeed it was, Your Honor.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Wrong again...)
*
* RETURN TO QUESTION
*
********************************************

-Judge
An... idea?
Very well, let's hear it.

-Phoenix
I want to check this bottle
for fingerprints!

-Phoenix
If my claim is true, Mr.
Hammer's fingerprints should
show up on this bottle!

-Edgeworth
Hmm...

-Judge
I suppose you're right.

-Judge
Very well.
The court will take possession
of the bottle.

Empty Bottle given
to the judge.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
This court will suspend
proceedings on the current
trial for today.

-Judge
Cody Hackin's testimony has
revealed new possibilities
in this case.

-Judge
In fact, things may have
happened very differently
than we previously thought.

-Judge
The Steel Samurai seen
by Ms. Oldbag may have been
the victim, Jack Hammer.

-Judge
The scene of the crime was not
Studio One, but Studio Two.

-Judge
And those in the trailer did
have time to commit murder.

-Judge
Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor?

-Judge
Your homework is to find
the answer to the following
question:

-Judge
Why would Mr. Hammer steal
the Steel Samurai costume?

-Judge
Also, who killed him,
and why?

-Judge
Find the answers for
me by tomorrow.

-Phoenix
(That's a lot of homework!)

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth.

-Edgeworth
Mm?

-Judge
You will need to reconsider
your stance in this case.

-Judge
Above all, you will need to
reconsider your suspicion
of Mr. Will Powers.

-Edgeworth
As you say, Your Honor.

-Judge
This trial will be extended
until tomorrow. This is the
last extension!

-Judge
Very well...
Court is adjourned!

Defendant Lobby No. 1

-Phoenix
Whew!

-Phoenix
That was a close one!

-Mia
We were saved by a hair,
but that's all that counts.

-Mia
I thought seriously about
going home about three
times during the trial.

-Phoenix
M-me too!

-Will
Really?

-Will
You both seemed so...
so confident!

-Phoenix
Hah! Maybe I should take
up a career in acting?

-Phoenix
I was ready to pronounce
you dead about three times
back there.

-Mia
Me too!

-Will
D-dead!?

-Mia
Hoh hoh. Of course, we're
kidding.

-Will
Are you sure?

-Phoenix
(I wasn't kidding...)

-Phoenix
Now, Mr. Powers.

-Phoenix
We have to go make
our final investigation.

-Phoenix
But I promise you, we'll
find the true killer by
tomorrow's trial!

-Will
R-right! Thanks!

-Phoenix
That was a close one,
huh, Mia?

-Maya
Really?
Too bad, I'm sorry
I missed it.

-Phoenix
?

-Phoenix
M-Maya!

-Maya
So, what happened?

-Phoenix
Well, I think I've
got a pretty good
idea who did it.

-Phoenix
Now all I need is a motive...
and proof.

-Maya
Wow! Good going, Nick!

-Phoenix
Under the "initial trial"
system, tomorrow is the
last day we have.

-Maya
"Initial trial"...?
What's that?

-Phoenix
That's the new court system
they introduced two or three
years ago.

-Phoenix
They had so many cases in
the system, they decided to
speed the whole process up.

-Maya
So, under that system, trials
have to end in three days?

-Phoenix
Yeah, pretty much.

-Phoenix
Well, we've no
time to waste!

***Present Powers's(?) Photo****************

***Present "Path to Glory"******************

* What do you think about

* prized possession.
*
* -Maya
* Wow! Impressive!
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* It's a little different from
* the Steel Samurai on TV...
*
* -Phoenix
* These are mostly taken at
* those PR shows they do at
* stores and fairs...
*
* -Phoenix
* I'm pretty sure it's not
* even Will Powers inside
* that suit.
*
* -Maya
* No true fan would be

* less than the real thing!
*
* -Maya
* He's still a child,

*

* Um, yeah, whatever you say.

*
* -Phoenix
* This is Cody's--
*

* Hey! A digital camera!
*

* I'm impressed a kid like

*
* -Maya
* Kids these days!

********************************************

***Talk about "The Steel Samurai"***********
*
* -Phoenix
* I don't get it, Maya.
*
* -Phoenix
* Why would Mr. Hammer steal
* the Steel Samurai costume?
*
* -Maya
* What!? You mean Mr. Hammer
* was wearing the costume!?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah!
*
* -Maya
* B-but Mr. Hammer was the
* victim, Nick!
*
* -Maya
* Why would he go through the
* trouble of stealing it?
*
* -Phoenix
* That's what we have
* to find out.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The director's alibi"********
*
* -Maya
* What happened with the
* director's testimony?
*
* -Phoenix
* Well, it's pretty clear that
* the producer and the director
* were both in the trailer.
*
* -Maya
* Huh...
*
* -Phoenix
* Which means that the killer
* has to be one of them!
*
* -Maya
* Really!? Why?
*
* -Phoenix
* Because the real scene of the
* crime was Studio Two... where
* that trailer is!
*
* -Maya
* Whaaaat!?
*
* -Phoenix
* (Hmm... was Maya always

*

* So, no. I haven't noticed

Oh... thanks.

Um, could you not look like
you're about to burst into

-Maya
Wow, Nick! You must have
really wowed 'em in there.

-Phoenix
You could stop looking

-Maya
Hey, WP! Only one day

-Maya
Let's make it count!

-Will
Yes...

-Will
Though there's not really

Hah hah hah! I'm not really

Please... this is no laughing

* -Will
* I-is that really Jack Hammer

* -Phoenix
* He's the only one who it
* could have been.
*
* -Will
* But why would he...?
*
* -Maya
* Yeah! Why?

* You're the medium! Why don't

* Could you tell me more

*
* -Will
* Oh... the producer?
*
* -Will
* She's well respected in
* the industry. They say
* she's a genius.
*
* -Maya
* A genius...?
*
* -Will
* She's been at Global
* Studios for five years now.
*
* -Will
* Right or wrong, nobody
* dares tell her different
* these days.
*
* -Phoenix
* Why is that?
*
* -Will
* Ever since she came on board,
* we've had nothing but hits.
*
* -Will
* Global Studios was on its

* up and made it shine.
*
* -Will
* Oh, and...
*
* -Maya
* And... what?
*
* -Will
* N-nothing. Forget it.
*

********************************************

***Talk about "Director Manella"************
*
* -Phoenix
* Can you tell me anything
* about Mr. Manella?
*
* -Will
* Oh, he used to be a minor
* straight-to-video director.
*
* -Will
* But something in his work
* caught Vasquez's eye.
*
* -Will
* She brought the Steel
* Samurai idea to him.
*
* -Will
* Now everyone knows the
* name Sal Manella.
*
* -Will
* I hear he's pretty much
* at her beck and call, though.
*
* -Will
* Whenever she says "jump!"
* he asks "how high?" and
* all that.
*
* -Phoenix
* (I can imagine him being at
* her beck and call... though
* I can't imagine him jumping.)

***Talk about "Mr. Hammer"******************
*
* -Maya
* I was wondering about
* Mr. Hammer...
*
* -Maya
* He was a big star back
* in the day, right?
*
* -Maya
* But then he just dropped
* off the face of the Earth.
*
* -Will
* Oh...
*
* -Will
* Yes, you're right. In fact,
* he was my role model when I
* started in this business.
*
* -Will
* But he just stopped taking
* on big roles.
*
* -Will
* That's when he began
* appearing in little
* productions at Global...
*
* -Maya
* How could he do that!?
*
* -Maya
* I was really looking
* forward to a sequel
* to "Samurai Summer."
*
* -Will
* He just gave up being
* a star five years ago.
*
* -Will
* Actually, now that
* I think about it...
*
* -Will
* That was right when

* Global.

-Phoenix
Wait, are you looking
for sleeping pills?

-Gumshoe
Yeah, pal. Traces thereof.

***Examine open grate***********************
*
* -Phoenix
* That grate's still
* lying here.
*
* -Maya
* Ah, they've seen wisdom
* at last!
*
* -Maya
* They know if they fixed it
* I'd just kick it off again.
*
* -Phoenix
* That poor assistant...

***Examine dressing room door***************
*
* -Phoenix
* The door to the dressing room.
* It's not locked.

***Examine vending machine******************
*
* -Phoenix
* Let's see... cola, candy,
* chips, gum...
*
* -Phoenix
* Huh. It's so... normal.

***Examine nearest table********************
*
* -Phoenix
* The remains of the employees'
* lunch are scattered around.
*
* -Phoenix
* Everyone was probably too
* shocked to clean up.
*
* -Phoenix
* There's a t-bone on one of
* the plates, minus the steak.
*
********************************************

***Present anything*************************
*
* -Gumshoe
* I'm guessing I know as
* much about that as you
* do, pal, i.e. nothing.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The plate"*******************
*
* -Maya
* So you're looking for traces
* of the sleeping pills... how?
*
* -Gumshoe
* For a thorough examination
* I gotta take the plate back
* to the precinct.
*
* -Gumshoe
* But I have the capabilities
* to make a cursory examination
* right here!
*
* -Gumshoe
* Our science guy gave me
* some testing solution.
*
* -Gumshoe
* This reacts to sleeping
* pills, see? If there're traces
* it'll change color.
*
* -Maya
* Wow! Neat!
*
* -Maya
* Well, Detective Gumshoe?
* What are you waiting for?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Now, now, everything
* in due time, pal.
*
* -Gumshoe
* ...
*
* -Gumshoe
* ...
*
* -Gumshoe
* ...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Well, the testing solution
* on the plate changed color
* alright.
*
* -Phoenix
* So there were sleeping pills
* on the plate!
*
* -Gumshoe
* Looks like it.
*
* Steak Plate added to

***Present Steak Plate**********************
*
* -Gumshoe
* It's looking like Will Powers
* was drugged...
*
* -Gumshoe
* I'm going to go back to
* the precinct to do some
* more detailed tests.
*
* -Maya
* You're being very... free with
* your information today,
* Detective.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Well... don't go telling
* anyone this, pal.
*
* -Gumshoe
* But I was kind of impressed
* at today's trial, too.
*
* -Maya
* ...!
*
* -Gumshoe
* Most lawyers would've given
* up after that director's
* testimony.
*
* -Gumshoe
* I think if it'd been anyone
* but you up there, Powers would
* be done for by now.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The investigation"***********
*
* -Phoenix
* How goes your investigation?
*
* -Gumshoe
* To tell the truth, it's a
* real mess, pal.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Some people think we should
* pursue the case we already
* have against Powers...
*
* -Gumshoe
* And some people think we
* should switch suspects!
*
* -Maya
* What do you think, Detective
* Gumshoe?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Well, pal, I hate
* to admit it...
*
* -Gumshoe
* But I'm not sure I buy the
* case against Mr. Powers any
* more.
*
* -Gumshoe
* I feel kind of bad for
* Mr. Edgeworth, though.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Prosecutor Edgeworth"********
*
* -Phoenix
* How is Edgeworth doing,
* anyway?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Edgeworth is out of control!
*
* -Gumshoe
* He was in the waiting room
* and he crushed this paper cup
* with hot, hot coffee in it.
*
* -Phoenix
* Whoa...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Talk about burns, pal!
*
* -Maya
* Wow! The fury of Edgeworth!
*
* CONTINUE FOR FIRST TIME ONLY
*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah, crushing paper cups...
*
* -Phoenix
* (Cups... bottles...?)
*
* -Phoenix
* Say, what ever happened
* with that empty bottle?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Oh, the bottle of sleeping
* pills?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Well, I got some good
* news for you about that.
*
* -Gumshoe
* They found the victim,
* Jack Hammer's prints on
* the bottle.
*
* -Maya
* So that means...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Yep, it sounds like the one
* who put Powers to sleep was
* none other than... the victim!
*
* -Phoenix
* (So I was right!)
*
* Sleeping Pill Bottle added
* to the Court Record.

***Present Sleeping Pill Bottle*************

* Detective, about that

*
* -Gumshoe
* Oh, that? Talk about
* embarrassing, pal!
*
* -Gumshoe
* I can't believe I missed
* that on my first sweep for
* evidence.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Don't know how I can apologize
* to Mr. Edgeworth.
*
* -Maya
* It must be tough being a
* detective, with all that
* responsibility...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Oh, heh heh. *blush*

-Penny
Oh! Hello!

-Maya
What are you doing here?

-Penny
Oh... I was just cleaning
up the dressing room.

-Penny
I guess WP won't be
using it anymore, so...

-Maya
Wha!? What!?
Why!?

-Maya
But WP's innocent!

-Penny
Yes, and I'm really
grateful for all you've done.

-Penny
But...

-Penny
This week is the last episode
of the Steel Samurai...

-Maya
What!?
Nooooooooooooooooo!

***Present Powers's(?) Photo****************

********************************************

***Talk about "Mr. Hammer"******************
*
* -Phoenix
* I was wondering if I could
* ask you about Mr. Hammer...
*
* -Penny
* Yes?
*
* -Phoenix
* On the day of the murder,
* he went to Studio Two.
*
* -Penny
* Huh? I thought he went
* to Studio One?
*
* -Maya
* He stole the Steel Samurai
* costume, too!
*
* -Penny
* What!?
*
* -Penny
* Why would Mr. Hammer do
* something like that?
*
* -Penny
* ...
*
* -Penny
* Oh...
*
* -Penny
* I guess the rumor must be
* true, then.
*
* -Maya
* The rumor?
*
* -Penny
* Yeah. Mr. Vasquez, that
* producer, had some kind of
* hold on Hammer.
*
* -Penny
* She had some dirt on him...
* He'd do anything she
* said, apparently.
*
* -Maya
* Some "dirt"?
*
* -Maya
* What dirt!
*
* -Penny
* ...
*
* -Penny
* Dirt. You know, bad stuff.
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* Um, I know what dirt means...
*
* -Penny
* About five years ago, they
* were filming a movie starring
* Mr. Hammer.
*
* -Penny
* They were using the new
* studio... Studio Two.
*
* -Penny
* Some sort of accident
* happened during filming.
*
* -Penny
* After that, they never used
* Studio Two again.
*
* -Penny
* They left the film set the
* way it was, too.
*
* -Phoenix
* (The film set...? Was that
* trailer part of the film
* set, then?)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The last episode"************
*
* -Maya
* W-what do you mean,
* the "last Steel Samurai"!?
*
* -Penny
* I know it's a shock,
* but nothing can be done
* to save it now.
*
* -Penny
* Whoever really did kill
* Mr. Hammer, also signed the
* Steel Samurai's death warrant.
*
* -Maya
* No... no!
*
* -Penny
* Also, I hear that Global
* Studios is going to change
* its programming.
*
* -Penny
* They're not going to make
* kids' shows anymore.
*
* -Maya
* W-what!?
* Why!?
*
* -Penny
* I don't know.
*
* -Penny
* It's sad, but that's what
* Global Studios decided.

********************************************

***Talk about "Five years ago"**************
*
* -Phoenix
* An accident five years ago?
*
* -Penny
* Yes, in Studio Two.
*
* -Penny
* That trailer there was

*
* -Phoenix
* Could you tell us
* what happened?
*
* -Penny
* ...
*
* -Penny
* S-sorry.
*
* -Penny
* I don't think I can.
*
* -Penny
* They really don't want
* us to talk about it.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Studio policy"***************
*
* -Phoenix
* Why aren't they going to make
* kids' shows anymore?
*
* -Penny
* The studio bigwigs don't
* want the Steel Samurai
* around anymore.
*
* -Penny
* They want to forget all
* this ever happened.
*
* -Penny
* They want it quiet, you
* understand?
*
* -Maya
* H-how can they just do that!
*
* -Maya
* What about all the kids
* who love the Steel Samurai!
*
* -Penny
* It's okay. I'm sure the
* kids will be fine.
*
* -Penny
* They'll find a new
* hero to follow.
*
* -Maya
* No, that can't be true!
*
* -Maya
* If the program just ends,
* they'll be heartbroken
* for sure!
*
* -Maya
* N-Nick!
* Say something!
*
* -Phoenix
* Umm... yeah.
*
* -Phoenix
* (I think evidence, rather
* than words, is called
* for here.)
*
* -Phoenix
* Here, take a look at this.
*
* ***Present something wrong******************

* *
* * -Penny
* * I'm sorry...
* * I don't understand.
* *
* * -Maya
* * Neither do I, Nick.
* *

* A fan collected all of

*
* -Phoenix
* The kids love the Steel
* Samurai!
*
* -Phoenix
* The show shouldn't be
* cancelled just so some

*
* -Phoenix

*
* -Penny

*
* -Penny
* ...
*
* -Penny
* You're right...
*
* -Penny
* Okay!
*

*

* Well, for starters...
*
* -Phoenix
* You can tell me something.
*
* -Phoenix
* Tell me what it is that
* Global Studios is so intent
* on hiding?
*
* -Phoenix
* Tell me about this accident
* five years ago.
*
* -Penny
* ...
*
* -Penny
* Okay!
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Five years ago"**************
*
* -Phoenix
* Could you tell us what
* happened five years ago?
*
* -Penny
* Well, I can tell you
* what I've heard.
*
* -Penny
* Apparently, five years ago,
* someone died... and it was
* Hammer's fault.
*
* -Maya
* S-someone died!?
*
* -Penny
* It was an accident, of course!
*
* -Penny
* Anyway...
*
* -Penny
* The producer, Ms. Vasquez
* managed to hush it up.
*
* -Phoenix
* And that's the "dirt" she
* had on Mr. Hammer?
*
* -Maya
* And that's why Mr. Hammer
* would do anything Ms. Vasquez
* asked him to do!
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* But, it was an accident,
* right? Why didn't they just
* make it public?
*
* -Penny
* Well, you know Mr. Hammer
* was a big star back then.
*
* -Penny
* They were afraid about what
* would happen to his career
* if word got out.
*
* -Maya
* I see...
*
* -Penny
* You know who knows mre
* about this? Ms. Oldbag.
*
* -Penny
* She was here at the studios
* back then, you know.
*
* -Phoenix
* Thanks.
* We'll try asking her.
*
* -Phoenix
* (If she'll talk...)

* -Maya
* Poor Ms. Oldbag...
*
* -Oldbag
* Here, take this.
*
* -Phoenix
* ...?
* A photograph?
*
* -Phoenix
* W-wait a second!
*
* -Oldbag
* This is the picture.
*
* -Phoenix
* Is... this the trailer
* in Studio Two?
*
* -Oldbag
* Hammer was supposed to fight
* with a bad guy on the top
* of those stairs, there.
*
* -Oldbag
* He pushed the other actor,
* and the man fell onto the
* flowerbox fence.
*
* -Oldbag
* B-but how did you get this?
*
* -Oldbag
* It... was a long time ago.
* I don't feel much like
* talking about it.
*
* -Phoenix
* I understand...

* Five-Year-Old Photo added

***Present Five-Year-Old Photo**************
*
* -Oldbag
* Poor old Hammer. He was
* a big star. The biggest.
*
* -Oldbag
* That accident five years
* ago is what did him in.
*
* -Oldbag
* He wanted to hide it.
* He didn't want anyone to know.
*
* -Oldbag
* Poor, silly old Hammer.
* If he had just come out
* and confessed...
*
* -Oldbag
* Then Vasquez wouldn't have
* gotten her claws into him!

MOVE TO: Employee Area

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Maya
Detective Gumshoe
must have left by now.

-Phoenix
He's probably thinking
about what to do in
tomorrow's trial.

-Maya
I bet Edgeworth is
pretty angry with him.

MOVE TO: Dressing Room

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Maya
The assistant must
have gone off somewhere.

-Maya
That stuff about Mr. Hammer
must have come as a shock
to her.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Examine sofa*****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Looks like someone
* was sleeping here.
*
* -Maya
* Well, we can be pretty sure
* WP did take a nap here, like
* he said.
*
* -Phoenix
* I'm not sure being drugged
* counts as taking a "nap"...
*
********************************************

***Examine bag******************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Mr. Powers's bag.

* Soon, soon.

* I, well...

* She means the security lady,

* Right... anyway...
*
* -Phoenix
* Ms. Vasquez.
*
* -Phoenix
* You hid this incident from

MOVE TO: Trailer

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Vasquez
Hmph. You came.

-Vasquez
Well then, what was that
you were talking about?

-Phoenix
(...!
Why is she so eager to
talk all of a sudden?)

-Phoenix
Ms. Vasquez.

-Phoenix
You were using that accident!

-Phoenix
You were blackmailing
Mr. Hammer so you could
control him, weren't you?

-Phoenix
That's why he was doing
kids' shows for petty change.

-Vasquez
Hmph...

-Vasquez
So I'm a blackmailer now?

-Maya
Well, that's what it was,
wasn't it!

-Maya
I mean, sure, it was
an accident...

-Maya
But you used it to drag
Mr. Hammer down from his
rightful place as a star!

-Vasquez
Oh...?

-Vasquez
I haven't pulled anyone down
from anywhere.

-Vasquez
Mr. Hammer's career went
sour of its own accord.

-Maya
B-but!

-Maya
You were the cause!
You pressured him...

-Maya
And to think it was
just an accident...!

-Vasquez
Excuse me!

-Vasquez
What is this all about?

-Vasquez
You keep saying "accident,"
"accident"...

-Vasquez
How are you so sure?

-Phoenix
What do you mean?

-Vasquez
Must I spell everything
out for you?

-Vasquez
Think: what would it be
if it wasn't an accident?

-Phoenix
...!

-Phoenix
No...

-Phoenix
No way!

-Phoenix
You mean Mr. Hammer
did it... on purpose?

-Vasquez
That is what I mean.

-Phoenix
Wh-where's your proof!
Can you prove it!?

-Vasquez
Hmph!

-Vasquez
Just think!

-Vasquez
Would he have let me run
his life for five years...
over a mere accident?

-Vasquez
And I ran him hard,
believe you me!

-Maya
B-but, the security lady
said it was an accident!

-Vasquez
Oh. Well, she was a big
fan of Hammer's, you see.

-Vasquez
She jumped on the reporter
who brought that photo
into the studio.

-Vasquez
She wrenched it out of his
hands, she did. Gave him a
few bruises, too.

-Phoenix
(...)

-Phoenix
(So that's why she
had the photo...)

-Vasquez
She's an old fool.

-Vasquez
Of course, all the reporter
would need is the negatives.
He could have made a copy.

-Vasquez
But he didn't.

-Vasquez
The only copy of that photo
is the one you hold.

-Vasquez
Give it to me. Now.

-Maya
W-what? This is valuable
evidence!

-Vasquez
Boys!

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
U-umm...

-Phoenix
Who are they...?

-Vasquez
Professionals.

-Vasquez
They're good at erasing...
various things.

-Vasquez
What do you think...?
Would you like to be erased?

-Phoenix
Wh-what!?

-Vasquez
The trial ends tomorrow?

-Vasquez
How unfortunate.

-Vasquez
It's a shame you'll
have to miss it!

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
Tell me why.

-Phoenix
Why do you want this
photograph so badly?

-Phoenix
This is Mr. Hammer's
"dirt"... no?

-Phoenix
Why should Dee Vasquez
care about it at all?

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
I'm sure you'll have plenty
of time to think about that
where you're going.

-Vasquez
So long, friends.

-Vasquez
Boys, erase away.

-Maya
Nooooooooooooo!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Gumshoe
Hold it right there!

-Gumshoe
I heard everything, pal!

-Gumshoe
Dee Vasquez!

-Gumshoe
You're coming down
to the precinct with me, now!

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
Hmph.

-Vasquez
Not bad.
...

-Vasquez
Very well.

-Vasquez
It appears this contest will
be decided tomorrow then.
In court.

-Vasquez
I'll be looking forward to it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Gumshoe
H-hey, you okay, pal?

-Gumshoe
Sorry I was a little late
with my entrance.

-Gumshoe
I don't get many chances to
practice that sorta thing.

-Maya
Detective Gumshoe...

-Maya
Thank you thank you thank you!

-Maya
I was really scared...

-Gumshoe
Huh?
Don't mention it, pal.
Just doing my job.

-Gumshoe
...

-Gumshoe
...

-Maya
Detective Gumshoe?

-Gumshoe
Sorry, it's just... I've
wanted to say that line ever
since I became a detective.

-Gumshoe
...

-Gumshoe
Okay. I've got one more
job to do today.

-Gumshoe
I'm sure we'll run into
each other again soon!

-Maya
Well, Nick.

-Maya
It looks like we're getting
close to the bottom of this.

-Phoenix
(And who's at the bottom...?)

-Phoenix
(Dee Vasquez!)

|EPISODE 3 - TURNABOUT SAMURAI|
|FINAL DAY - TRIAL            |
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

October 20, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 4

-Judge
Court is now in session for
the trial of Mr. Will Powers.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution is ready,
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
The defense is ready,
Your Honor.

-Judge
Today will be the final
day of this trial.

-Judge
I hope both the prosecution
and the defense will be able
to present decisive evidence.

-Judge
Very well, Mr. Edgeworth.
Your opening statement.

-Edgeworth
In yesterday's session, the
defense presented us with
a new theory for this case.

-Edgeworth
He claims that the scene
of the crime was, in fact,
Studio Two.

-Edgeworth
Today, I will call on people
present in the Studio Two
trailer that day.

-Edgeworth
From their testimonies, the
truth will become clear.

-Judge
Hmm... very well!

-Phoenix
(Edgeworth seems a bit
on edge today...)

-Judge
You may call your first
witness, Mr. Edgeworth.

-Edgeworth
The prosecution calls Ms.
Dee Vasquez to the stand.

-Edgeworth
Ms. Dee Vasquez is a producer
who was present in the Studio
Two trailer that day.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Edgeworth
Will the witness state her
name and occupation?

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
Dee Vasquez.
I am a producer for
Global Studios.

-Edgeworth
On the day of the murder,
you were in the trailer in
Studio Two...

-Vasquez
As everyone here knows,
yes?

-Edgeworth
...?

-Vasquez
I dislike needless banter.

-Vasquez
If you must pontificate, do
it when I'm not here.

-Edgeworth
Mrrph!

-Judge
V-very well, Ms. Vasquez.

-Judge
Please give the court your
testimony concerning the
day of the murder.

-Maya
Nick! I know she did it!
Make her pay!

-Phoenix
R-right!

-Phoenx
(If she's guilty, I'll
catch her with her pants
down... So to speak.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Day of the Murder --

(1)
-Vasquez
I entered the trailer, oh,
a little before noon.

(2)
-Vasquez
The meeting began at 12:00
sharp. It ended at 4:00.

(3)
-Vasquez
There was to be a rehearsal
afterwards, so we went to
Studio One...

(4)
-Vasquez
I was fatigued, so I
had Sal take me.

(5)
-Vasquez
At 2:30, we took a 15-minute
break in the meeting.

(6)
-Vasquez
Sal and I ate t-bone steaks
on the table in front of the
trailer.

-Vasquez
We found Hammer's body
later, when we all went
to Studio One.

-Vasquez
That's all.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
I have a question about
one part of your testimony.

-Judge
You were "fatigued" so you
had Sal "take" you...?

-Vasquez
The van.

-Judge
Hmm?

-Vasquez
There's a van at Studio Two.

-Vasquez
I had him take me in that.

-Vasquez
I thought it might be risky
to walk, what with that
monkey's head toppling over.

Van added to the
Court Record.

-Judge
I... I see!

-Judge
Very well. Mr. Wright,
your cross-examination.

-Maya
This is the final battle,
Nick! Let's do it!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Day of the Murder --

(1)
-Vasquez
I entered the trailer, oh,
a little before noon.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   By yourself?

   -Vasquez
   Yes.

   -Phoenix
   And you didn't stop in
   at the Employee Area?

   -Vasquez
   No.

   -Phoenix
   ...

   -Phoenix
   Are you always this... terse?

   -Vasquez
   Yes.

   -Phoenix
   (Oh dear...)

(2)
-Vasquez
The meeting began at 12:00
sharp. It ended at 4:00.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Did no one leave during
   the meeting?

   -Vasquez
   No one.

   -Vasquez
   ...

   -Phoenix
   ...

   -Phoenix
   C-come on... let's talk
   a bit more about that.

   -Edgeworth
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Edgeworth
   The witness did not come
   here to engage in idle
   conversation!

   -Edgeworth
   Stop interrupting the
   testimony.

   -Vasquez
   The same could be said to
   you, Mr. Edgeworth.

   -Vasquez
   And please stop banging
   on your little desk. It
   hurts my ears.

   -Edgeworth
   Mmph!

(3)
-Vasquez
There was to be a rehearsal
afterwards, so we went to
Studio One...

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   And when exactly was that?

   -Vasquez
   I've forgotten.

   -Phoenix
   ...

   -Vasquez
   ...

   -Phoenix
   Maybe you could try
   remembering?

   -Vasquez
   No.

   -Edgeworth
   The meeting ended at 4:00,
   and the rehearsal was
   scheduled for 5:00...

   -Edgeworth
   I would think it was
   between those times.

   -Phoenix
   (You "would think"!? C'mon,
   all you did was state the
   obvious, Edgeworth!)

(4)
-Vasquez
I was fatigued, so I
had Sal take me.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Hold on!

   -Phoenix
   You had Sal "take" you?
   What does that mean!?

   -Vasquez
   It means what I just said.

   -Vasquez
   I had Sal take me in
   the Studio Two van.

   -Phoenix
   (Oh... oh, right.)

(5)
-Vasquez
At 2:30, we took a 15-minute
break in the meeting.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   And what were you doing
   during that time...?

   -Vasquez
   Don't hit your desk.

   -Vasquez
   It irritates me.

   -Edgeworth
   Yeah! Mr. Wright...!

   -Edgeworth
   Oops.

   -Vasquez
   ...

   -Vasquez
   It was a 15 minute break...

(6)
-Vasquez
Sal and I ate t-bone steaks
on the table in front of the
trailer.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Do you have someone who
   can verify this?

   -Vasquez
   Sal.

   -Phoenix
   N-no...
   I mean someone else?

   -Vasquez
   One person is enough.

   -Phoenix
   (If she committed murder
   during that break...)

   -Phoenix
   (She wouldn't have had time
   to eat a t-bone steak!)

   -Phoenix
   (If I had some evidence that
   proved she didn't eat that
   steak...)

-Maya
Well, Nick? Find anything?

-Phoenix
I kind of wish she'd
said a little more...

-Maya
It's hard. I think she's
pretty used to being the boss.

-Maya
But I'm sure you'll find some
kind of contradiction in what
she said... somewhere!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Hah! As I thought!

-Vasquez
...

-Phoenix
You claim you ate a t-bone
steak!

-Phoenix
But I say you did not!

-Judge
W-what's this, now,
Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Look at this.

-Judge
It's... a plate?

-Phoenix
This plate was on the table
in the employee room.

-Phoenix
As you can see, a large
bone has been left behind.

-Edgeworth
Mr. Wright. Need I remind
you it was a T-BONE STEAK!?

-Phoenix
Exactly my point!

-Phoenix
Remember, if you will...

-Phoenix
Ms. Vasquez and Mr. Manella
ate at a table outside the
trailer.

-Phoenx
Yet there were no bones left
on the plates!

-Phoenix
The plates were bare!

-Vasquez
!

-Phoenix
Ms. Vasquez?

-Phoenix
Tell me, how can a person
eat a t-bone steak...

-Phoenix
and not leave the bone?

-Phoenix
I think I know how!

***You ate the bone, too********************
*
* -Phoenix
* You ate the bone, too!
*
* -Maya
* Um, Nick... are you sure?
*
* -Maya
* I mean, I love steak, but
* even I don't eat the bone!
*
* -Phoenix
* Hey, I don't eat it either!
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright!
*
* -Judge
* I, too, leave the bone.
*
* -Phoenix
* Um, can I try that again?
*
* RETURN TO QUESTION
*
********************************************

***You ate a boneless steak*****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Elementary! You were eating
* a boneless steak!
*
* -Judge
* ...
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright, say you
* are right...
*
* -Judge
* What would that prove?
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* Um, right, Your Honor.
*
* -Maya
* Nick!
*
* -Maya
* Remember her testimony?
*
* -Vasquez
* She said she ate a "t-bone
* steak"!
*
* -Maya
* She said "bone"!
*
* -Phoenix
* Correct!
* I was... testing you!
*
* -Maya
* Yeah, sure, Nick.
*
* -Phoenix
* Sorry...
* Can I try that one more time?
*
* -Judge
* ...
*
* RETURN TO QUESTION
*
********************************************

***You didn't eat the steak*****************
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
You didn't eat any steak
during that break!

-Phoenix
You took your steak and
threw it somewhere... like
that incinerator!

-Vasquez
!

-Vasquez
...

-Judge
I... I see!

-Judge
Then what was Ms. Vasquez
doing during her break?

-Phoenix
Isn't it obvious, Your Honor?

***Meeting the Steel Samurai****************
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Picking on Sal Manella*******************
*
* -Phoenix
* She was picking on
* Mr. Manella!
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright...
*
* -Judge
* Sometimes this court finds it
* hard to tell whether you are
* joking or being serious.
*
* -Phoenix
* Oh...?
*
* -Judge
* I would prefer it if you
* remained serious!
*
* -Phoenix
* Y-yes, Your Honor.
* I'll do my best.
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
She was meeting with
the Steel Samurai!

-Judge
Order!

-Judge
A-are you saying...!?

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor!

-Phoenix
As Ms. Vasquez left the
trailer to eat her steak...

-Phoenix
She ran into the
Steel Samurai!

-Phoenix
And then you did it.

-Phoenix
You killed him with
your own hands!

-Vasquez
!!!

-Judge
M-Mr. Wright!

-Judge
I-isn't that a little
presumptuous!?

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
What kind of stunt are you
trying to pull, Wright!?

-Vasquez
Let him claim what he wants...

-Vasquez
You say I did it?

-Phoenix
Yes.

-Vasquez
Fascinating!

-Vasquez
And here I was worrying that
today would be as boring
as all the rest.

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
Very well.

-Vasquez
Let us have a battle
of wits, you and I.

-Phoenix
(Any day, Vasquez!)

-Maya
Good luck, Nick!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Vasquez
Let's see...

-Vasquez
What was that murder weapon
again? Oh yes, the "Samurai
Spear."

-Phoenix
Yes...?

-Vasquez
I am, as you can see,
a woman of petite stature.

-Vasquez
How could I possibly use that
heavy spear as a weapon?

***I think you could!***********************
*
* -Phoenix
* It's not impossible!
*
* -Edgeworth
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Edgeworth
* Well, maybe it's not
* impossible, but--
*
* -Vasquez
* Silence.
*
* -Vasquez
* I'm speaking.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Mmmph!
*
* -Vasquez
* The victim was stabbed
* through the chest from
* the front, yes?
*
* -Vasquez
* I believe this would indicate
* that the victim was aware of
* the killer's presence.
*
* -Vasquez
* Now, the Steel Samurai
* costume is quite light
* and mobile.
*
* -Vasquez
* Compared to the victim, I am
* weaker and slower...
*
* -Vasquez
* I couldn't possibly
* win such a fight!
*
* -Vasquez
* Not to mention, there is
* proof I did not have the
* spear!
*
* -Vasquez
* The photograph of the Steel
* Samurai shows that the victim
* himself was holding it!
*
* -Vasquez
* Or do you mean to suggest
* that I could have wrested
* it away from him?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Y-yeah! Take that, Wright!
*
* -Edgeworth
* If you still think she did
* it, show us proof!
*
* -Phoenix
* Umm... er...
*
* -Maya
* Hey, Nick.
*
* -Maya
* Look at the data we have
* on that Samurai Spear in
* the Court Record.
*
* -Maya
* Isn't there something in
* there that gets to you...?
*
* -Phoenix
* Something odd about the
* Samurai Spear...?
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* Wait!
*
* -Judge
* Something the matter,
* Mr. Wright?
*
* -Phoenix
* S-sorry, Your Honor.
*
* -Phoenix
* I'd like to take back
* my previous claim.
*
* -Judge
* Very well, I won't hold
* you to your claim.
*
* -Judge
* But I'm afraid I will have
* to penalize you.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Ugh...)
*
* -Edgeworth
* What's this?
* You're taking back your claim?
*
* -Phoenix
* Let's backtrack for
* a moment.
*
* -Phoenix
* I want to consider whether
* the witness could have used
* the Samurai Spear or not!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***You couldn't, could you******************
*
* -Phoenix
* I think you would have
* a great deal of difficulty
* using that as a weapon.
*
* -Phoenix
* Pretty much anyone would.
*
* -Vasquez
* Hah.
*
* -Vasquez
* You see?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yes...
*
* CONTINUE

********************************************

***I don't know*****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* I don't know.

* -Edgeworth
* You "don't know"!?
* What kind of a lawyer
* are you!?
*
* -Vasquez
* Quiet. I'm speaking.
*
* -Edgeworth
* M-m-mmph!
*
* -Vasquez
* You "don't know"!?
* What kind of a lawyer...
*
* -Phoenix
* I don't know whether
* you could have fought
* with the Samurai Spear...
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
However, that has no
bearing on this case!

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
Meaning?

-Phoenix
The Samurai Spear was
not the murder weapon!

-Vasquez
What!?

-Judge
What is the meaning of this!?

-Judge
The spear was found lying
next to the victim's body!

-Phoenix
I have proof, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
I can prove that the
Samurai Spear was not
used as the murder weapon!

***Present something wrong******************
*
* -Phoenix
* *TAKE THAT!*
*
* -Judge
* Wrong, Mr. Wright.
*
* -Phoenix
* But I haven't said
* anything yet...?
*
* -Judge
* I know you well enough by now
* to know when you're going to
* present the wrong evidence.
*
* -Maya
* I can sense it too, with
* my Fey blood...
*
* -Phoenix
* (Okay, okay, so I picked the
* wrong evidence! Enough with
* all the sensing!)
*

* Right.
* Okay, here's the real
* evidence, Your Honor.

********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
I present my proof: the
so-called "murder weapon"!

-Edgeworth
B-but, that IS the
murder weapon!

-Phoenix
Not so fast.

-Phoenix
Remember that this spear
broke during the morning
action scene run-through?

-Phoenix
But, someone fixed the
spear.

-Phoenix
It was the security lady!

-Phoenix
She fixed it with duct tape!

-Phoenix
Now tell me, how is it
possible...

-Phoenix
for someone to stab a man
who is wearing a thick costume
with this!? Through the chest!

-Judge
O-order! Order!

-Edgeworth
Mr. Wright! What are you
driving at!?

-Edgeworth
Think about what you're--

-Vasquez
Silence!

-Vasquez
I'm the one testifying here
and I will be heard!

-Edgeworth
Mmmph...!

-Vasquez
Are you quite sane?

-Vasquez
Are you even aware of what
you're saying?

-Vasquez
If the Samurai Spear was
not the murder weapon,
then pray tell what was!?

-Vasquez
How was Hammer killed?

-Judge
Well, Mr. Wright? Can you
tell us what weapon was
used to kill Mr. Hammer?

***I can tell you***************************

********************************************

***I can't tell you*************************
*
* -Phoenix
* Of course I can't.
*
* -Judge
* "O-of course"!?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Can the antics, Wright!
*
* -Judge
* I have to agree, Mr. Wright.
* At least pretend that you
* think you might know!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Urk. Note to self: think
* before speaking.)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Tough crowd...)
*
* RETURN TO QUESTION
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
Would I make a claim like
that if I couldn't tell you
what the weapon was?

-Judge
I'm afraid your confidence
can sometimes be unfounded,
Mr. Wright...

-Judge
Very well, let's see this
murder weapon, then.

***Present something wrong******************
*
* -Phoenix
* *TAKE THAT!*
*
* -Maya
* Nick!
*
* -Maya
* Think about this some
* more!
*
* -Phoenix
* Huh? Think?
*
* -Maya
* Please!
*
* -Maya
* How could that possibly
* have been the murder weapon!?
*
* -Phoenix
* (Hmm. She has a point.)
*
* -Judge
* Something the matter?
*
* -Phoenix
* N-no, Your Honor.
* Nothing!
*
* RETURN TO COURT RECORD

********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
Look at this photo.

-Judge
W-what is this?

-Judge
Why, that's Jack Hammer
standing at the top of
the stairs!

-Judge
O-order! Order!

-Judge
If I cannot have order this
trial will be suspended!

-Judge
Mr. Wright!

-Judge
What is this all about!?

-Phoenix
This photograph is from
five years ago.

-Phoenix
There was an unfortunate
accident at Global Studios.

-Phoenix
This is a photo of that
very accident.

-Phoenix
Not a word of this was
leaked to the outside.

-Phoenix
It was a close-kept
secret at the studios.

-Edgeworth
What does this have to
do with the currect case!?

-Phoenix
Mr. Edgeworth...

-Phoenix
You still can't see it?

-Phoenix
See the fallen man in this
photo? See how the fencepost
pierced him through the chest?

-Edgeworth
Wh... what!?

-Edgeworth
Are you saying...!?

-Phoenix
Yes.

-Phoenix
What happened five years
ago...

-Phoenix
has happened again!

-Vasquez
!!!

-Judge
Mr. Wright!
Continue!

-Phoenix
It's 2:30 PM on the day
of the murder!

-Phoenix
Ms. Dee Vasquez meets
Jack Hammer outside
the Studio Two trailer!

-Phoenix
Then she did it!

-Phoenix
She pushed Mr. Hammer off
the stairs onto the fence!

-Phoenix
Just like Mr. Hammer had
himself done five years ago!

-Phoenix
Though whether she did it
on purpose or by accident,
I cannot say.

-Vasquez
...!

-Edgeworth
I-in other words...
th-the victim, Mr. Hammer...

-Edgeworth
He died in the same way
that he caused another
man to die...

-Edgeworth
five years ago!

-Phoenix
Precisely.

-Phoenix
Ironic, isn't it?

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
Hoh hoh.
Very creative, Mr. Wright.

-Vasquez
I could use a man like you
on my script writing staff.

-Phoenix
You deny that what
I say is true?

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
Mr. Wright.

-Vasquez
Let's say, for the sake of
argument, that Hammer died
at the trailer as you say.

-Vasquez
Yet, the body was found
at Studio One, was it not?

-Vasquez
And in the Evil Magistrate's
costume, no less.

-Vasquez
Are you then claiming that
I carried the body to
Studio One...

-Vasquez
And returned to the trailer,
all in the space of
a 15 minute break?

-Vasquez
How could I have
disposed of the body!?

-Phoenix
...

-Edgeworth
The break in the meeting
at the trailer lasted 15
minutes, from 2:30 to 2:45.

-Edgeworth
Could Jack Hammer have been
pushed off the stairs to
his death...

-Edgeworth
then carried to Studio One
and placed inside his
costume?

-Edgeworth
There wasn't enough time!

-Judge
Hmm... indeed.

-Judge
Well, Mr. Wright?
How could she have dealt
with the body?

***She couldn't deal with it****************
*
* -Phoenix
* 15 minutes is kind of
* a short amount of time...
*
* -Vasquez
* You see?
*
* -Vasquez
* Even I cannot do
* the impossible.
*
* -Vasquez
* Therefore, Mr. Wright.
*
* -Vasquez
* I didn't do it.
* Agreed?
*
* -Phoenix
* Not agreed!
*
* -Vasquez
* ?
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***I bet she could move it******************
*
* -Phoenix
* You'd be surprised!
* I bet she could do it!
*
* -Phoenix
* When people think their
* life depends on it, they
* can do amazing things!
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright, this is not
* an episode of "That's
* Incredible."
*
* -Edgeworth
* If you claim she did
* everything in 15 minutes...
*
* -Phoenix
* (Let me guess:
* "Show Me Proof!")
*
* -Edgeworth
* Correct!
* Show me proof!
*
* -Phoenix
* (How am I supposed to
* do that...?)
*
* -Edgeworth
* Then I won't have you making
* unsubstantiated claims!

***She had another way**********************
*

*
********************************************

-Phoenix
What if she had another way
to carry the body, other than
with her own hands?

-Vasquez
For instance?

-Phoenix
Actually, for that matter,
there was no need for her
to do the deed in 15 minutes!

-Phoenix
And there was a way for
you to carry that body.

-Vasquez
!!!

-Vasquez
I-interesting!
Let's hear it then.

-Judge
Mr. Wright?

-Judge
Please show us how
she carried the body.

***Present something wrong******************

********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
Ms. Vasquez.

-Phoenix
You carried the body
to Studio One.

-Phoenix
And you used the studio
van to do it!

-Vasquez
!!!

-Phoenix
Recall your testimony...

-Vasquez
There was to be a rehearsal
afterwards, so we went to
Studio One.

-Vasquez
I was fatigued,
so I had Sal take me.

-Vasquez
There was a van there, right?
I had Sal drive me.

-Phoenix
You used the van to carry
the body to Studio One!

-Phoenix
Then, before everyone else
got there, you put the body
into the Magistrate costume!

-Vasquez
...!

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
Hold on, Wright!

-Edgeworth
Don't forget, it was Sal
Manella that drove the van!

-Edgeworth
Are you suggesting that
Mr. Manella was a conspirator?

***Of course he was*************************

********************************************

***Of course he wasn't**********************
*
* -Phoenix
* Of course he wasn't!
*
* -Edgeworth
* Hah!
*
* -Edgeworth
* So, without Mr. Manella
* noticing anything, she put
* the body in the van...
*
* -Edgeworth
* Then managed to put the body
* into the costume...?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Are you seriously suggesting
* that is possible!?
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* Of course I'm not serious.

*
* -Phoenix
* Y-yes, Your Honor.
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
Of course, Sal Manella has
to have been a conspirator!

-Phoenix
The body had to be placed in
the van, and put into the
costume.

-Phoenix
There's no way Ms. Vasquez
could have done that alone!

-Phoenix
Also, don't forget that
they had to dispose of the
Steel Samurai costume.

-Phoenix
They had to... because it
was covered in Mr. Hammer's
blood!

-Phoenix
They probably burned it
in that small incinerator.

-Phoenix
Well, Ms. Vasquez!

-Phoenix
Shall I continue?

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
No need.

-Vasquez
You're smarter than
you look, Mr. Wright.

-Vasquez
Hmph.

-Vasquez
I lose. You win.
It... was fun.

-Phoenix
(I... win!?)

-Phoenix

-Edgeworth

-Phoenix
Umm...

-Phoenix
So... what happens next?

-Vasquez
?

-Phoenix
Don't "?" me!

-Phoenix
Don't you have anything
to say!?

-Vasquez
What would you like me to say?

-Phoenix
Huh?

-Phoenix
"I lost"?
Something like that!

-Vasquez
I just said that.

-Phoenix
W-wait, so you mean...

-Phoenix
Dee Vasquez!
So, it was you?

-Phoenix
You killed Jack Hammer!

-Phoenix
...

-Edgeworth
...

-Judge
...

...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Vasquez
Who can say?

-Phoenix
Huh?

-Vasquez
Are you sure I did?

-Vasquez
Mr. Wright...

-Vasquez
We just engaged in
a battle of wits.

-Vasquez
And the result of that battle?
You proved the possibility
that I murdered Hammer.

-Phoenix
R-right!

-Vasquez
But... that is only
a possibility.

-Vasquez
Proof is another thing
altogether.

-Vasquez
You lack decisive proof,
Mr. Wright.

-Phoenix
Wha... wha... wha... wha...

-Phoenix
WHAAAAAAAAAT!?

-Judge
Order!

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth,
your thoughts?

-Edgeworth
Umm... uhh... mmmph.

-Edgeworth
O-of course, it's as
the witness says!

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Certainly, it does seem very
likely she did it... but, uh,
there's no proof!

-Phoenix
(...!)

-Phoenix
(Edgeworth isn't sure!)

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
Well?

-Vasquez
I came here was a witness
today.

-Vasquez
If you've no more questions,
I'll be leaving.

-Phoenix
(Urk! What do I do now!?)

***You did it, Vasquez!*********************

witness, Ms. Vasquez.

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
...

-Judge
Yes, Mr. Edgeworth?

-Edgeworth
I was hoping to come up
with a question while I was
objecting, Your Honor...

-Edgeworth
I didn't.

-Judge
I see...
Very well.

-Edgeworth
*OBJECTION!*

-Edgeworth
Your Honor!

-Edgeworth
I request that the
witness testify again!

-Vasquez
You are the prosecutor,
are you not?

-Vasquez
Why are you badgering me?
I'm your witness!

-Edgeworth
I... I just want to hear
your testimony again.

-Vasquez
Does this make any sense
to you, Your Honor?

-Vasquez
I don't see that we have
anything to gain by repeating
the last several minutes.

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth...

-Judge
I, too, see little point in
making Ms. Vasquez repeat
herself.

-Judge
What exactly did you want
her to testify about?

-Edgeworth
Mmmph! Well, yes, um...

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Indeed!
Verily, I say...
Ergo!

-Edgeworth
I want to hear about what
happened... after they found
the body!

-Judge
After they found the body...?

-Judge
Very well.

-Judge
The witness will testify
to the court concerning
this matter.

-Vasquez
Hmph.

-Maya
Nick!

-Maya
Why did Edgeworth...?

-Phoenix
Who knows?

-Phoenix
He probably realized she
did it, too.

-Maya
But... but!

-Maya
Wasn't he the one that said
he always gets a guilty
verdict...?

-Maya
After all that...

-Phoenix
(Edgeworth...)

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- After Finding the Body --

(1)
-Vasquez
I was with Sal and Oldbag,
the security lady, when we
found the body.

(2)
-Vasquez
The assistant was there, too.
Only Powers was absent.

(3)
-Vasquez
I immediately called the
police. Then Powers showed
up.

(4)
-Vasquez
The security lady, Oldbag,
was quite agitated. Pointing
at Powers, saying "he did it!"

(5)
-Vasquez
I asked to be left out
of the proceedings.

(6)
-Vasquez
I went back to the trailer
to get my script and direction
notes.

(7)
-Vasquez
Then I went home.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
I see no issues raised
by this testimony...

-Judge
Mr. Wright,
your cross-examination.

-Maya
Okay, Nick, we're
close, real close!

-Maya
She may be acting
tough now...

But if you put her on the

Find the key you need

-Phoenix
Right!

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- After Finding the Body --

(1)
-Vasquez
I was with Sal and Oldbag,
the security lady, when we
found the body.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What time was that?

   -Vasquez
   We were to meet at 5:00
   for the rehearsal.

   -Vasquez
   So I'd say it was then.

   -Phoenix
   When exactly did you
   and Mr. Manella arrive
   at the studio?

   -Vasquez
   About 10 minutes before.

   -Vasquez
   I wasn't stuffing any bodies
   into costumes, mind you.

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm...)

   ***Press harder*****************************

   * -Phoenix
   * Well!?
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Then you could have put
   * Hammer in that costume,
   * with Sal Manella's help!
   *
   * -Vasquez
   * Oh?

   * -Vasquez
   * What did I just say?

   Mr. Powers was taking

   -Vasquez
   So he says.

   -Phoenix
   Did no one go to call him?

   -Vasquez
   Remember...

   -Phoenix
   Remember... what?

   -Vasquez
   There was a dead body lying
   in front of us. Yet you

   -Vasquez
   No one said a thing.

   Completely silent.

   -Vasquez
   So we stood there until Powers
   finally arrived on the scene.

   -Vasquez
   "Sorry! Sorry I'm late!"

   -Vasquez
   Then... silence.
   Dead silence.

   -Phoenix
   Why did the security lady

   him going toward the studio.

   -Phoenix
   You "asked to be left out"?

   -Vasquez
   Yes.

   -Vasquez
   It seems that everyone
   else was questioned.

   -Vasquez
   And I'm really not fond
   of that sort of thing.

   -Phoenix
   But, you can't just decide
   who the police will and
   won't question!

   -Vasquez
   Thankfully, the studio
   thinks otherwise.

   -Vasquez
   They were nice enough to
   understand that, since we
   were in a meeting...

   -Vasquez
   There was no way we could
   have been involved. Thus,
   they covered for us.

   riding on it, with all those
   bigwigs at the meeting...)

   -Phoenix
   (I'm sure her "professionals"
   helped convince everyone they
   didn't require questioning.

-Vasquez
I went back to the trailer
to get my script and direction
notes.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   The script and your
   direction notes?

   -Vasquez
   Yes, they're quite
   valuable. It wouldn't
   do to have them stolen.

   -Phoenix
   No, I guess not.

   * -Edgeworth

   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Don't you see what

   *
   * -Edgeworth

   *
   * -Judge
   * What you have just said...

   * -Judge

   * -Judge

   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * ...
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * I... appreciate the concern,
   * Your Honor.
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * I will stand by my statement,
   * however, regardless of how
   * the court sees my role here.
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Now, Ms. Vasquez...
   *
   * -Edgeworth
   * Do you have an explanation?
   *
   * -Phoenix
   * (I can't believe Edgeworth
   * is helping me!)
   *
   * -Vasquez
   * Hmph.
   *
   * -Vasquez
   * So the prosecution is in

   * What kind of court is this?
   *
   * -Vasquez
   * No matter.
   *
   * -Vasquez
   * I think you misunderstood me.
   *
   * -Vasquez
   * I had a perfectly good reason
   * to believe there would be
   * no rehearsal.
   *
   * -Judge
   * Hmm...
   *

Then I went home.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So you weren't questioned?

   -Vasquez
   That's correct.

   -Vasquez
   I find these things...

-Vasquez
I knew that Hammer was injured
and couldn't do any action
scenes, so I left them behind.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   How did you know about
   the injury?

   -Vasquez
   H-how did I know!?

   -Vasquez
   Sal.

   -Vasquez
   He told me.

   -Phoenix
   (Sal the director...
   Hmm...)

-Maya
You have to find something
to peg this on her here...

-Maya
Or everything we've done
till now will have been
wasted!

-Maya
I believe in you, Nick!
Go get 'em!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
You "knew that Hammer
was injured"...?

-Phoenix
Don't you think that's
a little funny?

-Phoenix
I mean, it was the Steel
Samurai who was injured!

-Pheonix
It was Will Powers!

-Vasquez
Wh... what!?

-Judge
Mr. Wright!
Explain yourself!

-Phoenix
Yes, Mr. Hammer is dragging
his leg in this photo.

-Phoenix
But that's because he was
pretending to be Mr. Powers!

-Vasquez
P-pretending...?

-Phoenix
One person was injured in the
run-through that morning.

-Phoenix
That person was Mr. Powers,
not Mr. Hammer!

-Phoenix
Now, why did you think it was
Mr. Hammer who was injured?

-Vasquez
...!

-Vasquez
I-I already said it
was Sal who told me!

-Vasquez
Th-that's right!
He must have gotten it wrong.

-Phoenix
I think not.

-Phoenix
Mr. Manella was at the
run-through that morning.

-Phoenix
He would have known it was
Mr. Powers who was injured.
He saw it happen!

-Phoenix
Why would he tell you
the wrong person?

-Phoenix
Ms. Vasquez!

***You heard Mr. Manella wrong**************
*
* -Phoenix
* You must have heard
* Mr. Manella wrong!
*
* -Phoenix
* Even though he said
* Mr. Powers was injured...
*
* -Phoenix
* You thought he was talking

*
* -Vasquez
* ...
*
* -Vasquez
* Now that you mention it...
*
* -Vasquez
* Yes, I believe you're right.
*
* -Vasquez
* I'm sure that's what happened.
*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah!
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Maya
* Nick!
*
* -Maya
* You're supposed to be putting
* her on the spot, not helping
* her out!
*
* -Phoenix
* Oh, right...

***You saw Hammer limping*******************

-Phoenix
Actually, you didn't hear
anything from Mr. Manella.

-Phoenix
You saw Mr. Hammer limping
with your own eyes!

-Judge
Yes, but...

-Judge
Wasn't it Mr. Powers who
was injured...?

-Phoenix
Yes, but remember!

-Phoenix
Mr. Hammer was dragging
his leg, too!

-Phoenix
He was pretending to be
Mr. Powers!

-Judge
Aah!

-Phoenix
And when was he
doing this...?

-Edgeworth
Well...

-Edgeworth
It would have been after he
put on the Steel Samurai
costume...

-Edgeworth
and went to Studio Two.
Where he was murdered!

-Phoenix
Exactly!

-Phoenix
Ms. Vasquez!

-Phoenix
You met him, didn't you?
You saw the Steel Samurai
limping!

-Phoenix
And Mr. Hammer was in
that Steel Samurai suit!

-Phoenix
That's why you were confused!

-Phoenix
That's why you thought it
was Mr. Hammer who had been
injured that morning!

-Vasquez
...!!!

-Judge
Order! Order!
I will have order!

-Edgeworth
Witness!

-Edgeworth
Can you refute this claim?

-Vasquez
Hrrmmmmm... hmph!

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
...

-Phoenix
(Yeah, let's see you sneak
out of this one, Vasquez!)

-Vasquez
...

-Vasquez
Very well!

-Vasquez
I have a question for you!

-Phoenix
(Urk...)

-Phoenix
(Why are the real killers
always so... persistent?)

-Vasquez
Why in the world would
I want Mr. Hammer dead?

-Vasquez
Yes, he'd fallen on hard
times, but he was a star!

-Vasquez
I had nothing to gain
from his death! Nothing!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Yes, you would need a motive.

-Jude
Why would she have killed
the victim?

-Judge
If there is a reason,
it is unclear to this court.

-Judge
Does the defense have anything
to say on the matter?

-Judge
In other words, can you
prove she had a motive?

***Of course I can prove it!****************

***Of course I can't prove it!**************

-Phoenix
Okay.

-Phoenix
I have proof, and
I'll show it to you!

-Phoenix

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
This is my proof!

-Judge
This is... the photo
from before?

-Phoenix
This photo reveals the
motive in this murder!

-Vasquez
...!

-Pheonix
I'm right, aren't I,
Ms. Vasquez?

-Vasquez
Hrrrrrrm... hmph!

-Phoenix
Five years ago, Mr. Hammer
was at the height of his fame.

-Phoenix
With Dee Vasquez's help, a
terrible accident was swept
under the carpet...

-Phoenix
Ladies and gentlemen,
the case currently up
for trial...

-Phoenix
It began on that day,
five years ago!

-Vasquez
...

-Phoenix
Ironically enough, that
accident precipitated
Mr. Hammer's fall...

-Phoenix
His fall from stardom!

-Edgeworth
His guilt weighed him
down, no doubt.

-Phoenix
However!

-Phoenix
You, Dee Vasquez, used
Mr. Hammer.

-Phoenix
You made him work for you
for petty change!

-Vasquez
Hmph.

-Edgeworth
Bringing us to the present
day... and Mr. Hammer's last
role as the Evil Magistrate!

-Phoenix
Yes! Undoubtedly, it was
a constant source of shame
for the ex-star...

-Edgeworth
Hmm...

-Judge
One moment, Mr. Wright.

-Judge
We are talking about motives,
here... yet you have only
talked about Mr. Hammer.

-Judge
It almost seems as if...

-Judge
As if it was Mr. Hammer who
had killed Dee Vasquez, not
the other way around!

-Judge
What motive would Ms. Vasquez
have?

-Vasquez
Y-yes, that's right.

-Vasquez
According to what you say...

-Vasquez
I would have had no reason to
kill Hammer. He was a good
source of income for me!

-Vasquez
And I never get rid of useful
men. It's a policy of mine.

-Judge
Mr. Wright?

-Judge
Please explain Ms. Vasquez's
motive for murder.

***Reveal evidence**************************

* -Phoenix
* Okay...
*
* -Phoenix
* Allow me to present to the

* * Mr. Hammer?
* *
* * -Vasquez
* * I'd say all it proves is that
* * the defense attorney has
* * completely lost his marbles.
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * (Urk!)
* *
* * -Judge
* * Mr. Wright!
* * The court requests that you
* * find your marbles immediately.
* *
* * -Judge

* * -Maya

********************************************

-Phoenix
She had no motive, Your Honor.

-Judge
What's that now!?

-Phoenix
It was Mr. Hammer who was
out for blood!

-Phoenix
All Ms. Vasquez did was
push him off the stairs...
in self defense!

-Edgeworth
What's that now!?

-Phoenix
It's simple!

-Phoenix
Mr. Hammer was intending
to kill Ms. Vasquez!

-Edgeworth
Wha-!?

-Edgeworth
WHAT!?

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
Jack Hammer drugged
Mr. Powers with sleeping
pills!

-Phoenix
Jack Hammer snuck into the
dressing room and stole
the Steel Samurai costume!

-Phoenix
Jack Hammer wore the costume
to fool the security lady
into thinking he was Powers!

-Phoenix
Then Jack Hammer made
his way to the trailer!

-Phoenix
And for what purpose, you ask?

-Phoenix
To kill Dee Vasquez, who had
so cruelly taken advantage
of him all those years!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
So, you did do it, didn't you?

-Vasquez
... Yes.

-Vasquez
I am guilty.

-Vasquez
It was me...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Someone call an ambulance!"

"Th-there's blood everywhere!
We're too late!"

"Aah! Ms. Vasquez!"

"What...?
What happened here!?"

"Manuel fell from the
trailer stairs...!"

"Manuel! Manuel!

"Ms. Vasquez, please, try
to remain calm..."

"No...! No!
How could this...?"

"It was an accident..."

"Mr. Hammer was doing
an action scene and..."

"No! Manuel! Manuel!!!"

"D-don't touch him!
Ms. Vasquez!"

"Nooooooooooooo!"

"Please... please don't die."

"Please..."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Vasquez
Congratulations, Mr. Wright.

-Vasquez
I lose... again.

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth...
Where's Dee Vasquez?

-Edgeworth
In the waiting lobby,
Your Honor. As calm and
collected as ever...

-Judge
I see...

-Judge
Mr. Wright.

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor?

-Judge
It appears you have brought
about yet another miracle.

-Phoenix
I... thank you, Your Honor.

-Edgeworth
I think not, Your Honor.

-Edgeworth
Will Powers was innocent.

-Edgeworth
That he should be found
so is only natural...
not a miracle.

-Judge
...

-Judge
Yes.
Yes, you're right.

-Judge
Very well.

defendant, Mr. Will Powers...

Yes... but... it's sad.

It's bad enough that he

N-no! O-of course not...

Edgeworth!

Umm... that was too bad,
Edgeworth!

-Edgeworth
You don't waste any
time gloating, do you?

-Phoenix
No... I really want to
thank you.

-Phoenix
Vasquez would have gotten
away if you hadn't stepped in.

-Will
Ah, uh, pleased to meet
you. I'm Powers. *sniff*

-Edgeworth
Ah, er, Edgeworth.

-Edgeworth
I'm a big fan of your
work, Mr. Powers.

-Edgeworth
Wright.

-Edgeworth
I must say, I hadn't expected

these years.

-Maya
Meet "again"...?

-Edgeworth
However.

-Edgeworth
In retrospect, it would have
been better had we not met.

-Edgeworth
Thanks to you, I am saddled
with unnecessary... feelings.

-Phoenix
Unnecessary feelings?

-Edgeworth
Yes. Unease... and
uncertainty.

-Phoenix
Aren't those kind of
necessary?

-Edgeworth
They only serve to get
in my way.

-Edgeworth
You listen to me,
Phoenix Wright.

-Edgeworth
Don't ever show your
face in front of me again.

-Edgeworth
That's what I came here
to tell you.

-Will
Umm... Mr. Wright?

-Will
Is... this guy your friend?

-Maya
What? Friends?
As if!

-Maya
They're rivals! Rivals!
Right, Nick?

-Phoenix
For now we are... I guess.

-Maya
Huh!?

-Maya
Why do I get the feeling
I'm missing something?

-Maya
C'mon, Nick! Tell me!
What's the deal with you

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
And so the curtain closes
on another trial...

-Phoenix
I caused quite a stir by
revealing that accident
from five years ago.

-Phoenix
It was the talk of the town.

-Phoenix
Thankfully, Global Studios
rethought its programming
change.

-Phoenix
They went back to making
kids' shows again.

-Maya
Nick!

-Maya
This is it! The new show
starts today! You're going
to watch it with me, right?

-Phoenix
(I'll admit, I was kind
of surprised...)

-Phoenix
(I didn't think they'd
seriously go through
with it...)

-Maya
You have to buy trading
cards too, okay!

-Maya
We have to trade with
Cody and that assistant!

-Phoenix
Fine, fine.
I'll do it.

-Maya
Isn't it great that WP
gets to play the lead again?

-Maya
I wonder if they'll show
his real face this time...

-Phoenix
I dunno...

-Phoenix
I don't think the world

Hey, hey, Nick!

Waterfalls...?
Dare I ask why?

Duh, Nick!

Oh... Is that part of your

I don't know about any falls
per se, but Gourd Lake is
pretty close...

-Maya
Oh. Darn.

-Phoenix
Sorry, but them's the breaks.
Couldn't you just take a
cold shower or something?

-Maya
...

-Maya
Good idea!

-Phoenix
(So much for the rushing
spring waters...)

-TV
Next in the news...

-TV
A large, unidentified animal
was sighted at Gourd Lake!

-TV
The town is buzzing with
excitement!

-TV
Locals are calling it "Gourdy"
in a tip of the hat to Nessie,
the Loch Ness monster.

-TV
Though its namesake, Nessie,
proved to be a hoax...

-TV
locals are confident their
Gourdy is the real deal.

-TV
...

-Phoenix
*yawn*
Bor-ing.

-Phoenix
Can't they show real
news for a change?

-Maya
Nick?

-Phoenix
?

-Maya
The water pressure's kind of
low in that shower.

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
You want more pressure, huh?

-Phoenix
Why don't you go down to the
fire department and have them
spray you with the hose?

-Maya
...

-Maya
Good idea, Nick!

-Phoenix
(Apparently, E.S.P. is no aid
in detecting sarcasm...)

-TV
We interrupt this program
to bring you a special news
bulletin!

-TV
Strange occurrences continue
at Gourd Lake... But this
time, it's murder!

-Phoenix
(Gourd Lake again?)

-TV
The body of a man was found in
the lake early this morning.

-TV
A suspect was apprehended.
Sources inside the police
department revealed...

-TV
that the suspect's name
is Miles Edgeworth, age 24.

-TV
Edgeworth was an up-and-coming
prosecution attorney, known
for his skill and connections.

-TV
He was guaranteed a long and
rewarding career... has he
thrown it all away?

-Phoenix
(...?)

-Phoenix
(E-Edgeworth!?)

-Phoenix
What's going on!?

-Phoenix
Edgeworth would never
do something like--

-Maya
Nick?

-Phoenix
Yipes! M-Maya!

-Maya
The fireman yelled at me
when I called him.

-Phoenix
We've got bigger things to
worry about than that!

-Phoenix
They arrested Edgeworth!

-Maya
What? You mean, the
prosecutor?

-Phoenix
Yeah, he's a suspect...
in a murder!

-Maya
Whaaaaat!?

-Maya
When? Where? Whom?
Why? How?

-Phoenix
I-I don't know!

-Maya
Let's go find out, Nick!

You know, Nick...

We've all been in here

I guess it comes with
the territory.

-Maya
I'm not sure it's something
we should mention to too
many people...

-Maya
Aah!

-Phoenix
...

-Phoenix
Hey! Edgeworth! Come back!

-Edgeworth
What are you doing here!?

-Maya
Nick, I don't think he's
in a very good mood.

-Phoenix
Well, he is in detention.

-Phoenix
Were you in a good mood
when you were here?

-Edgeworth
So, you've come to laugh
at the fallen attorney?
Then laugh, laugh!

-Edgeworth
Well? Why aren't you laughing?

-Maya
Nick...
Should we be laughing?

-Phoenix
Nah. It's a trick. Laugh
and he'll get mad...
or burst into tears.

-Phoenix
Edgeworth.

-Phoenix
We don't have so much free
time we can spend it coming
down here to laugh at you.

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Yes you do.

-Phoenix
(Actually, he's right.)

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
I hoped you wouldn't come.
I didn't want you to see me.

-Edgeworth
Not like this.

(Hey, I didn't want to see
you either, believe me.)

* ...
*
* -Edgeworth
* Hah! Hah hah!
*
* -Edgeworth
* Good one, Wright.
*
* -Edgeworth
* But I'm not that

*
* -Maya
* Wh-what do you mean

*

*
* -Edgeworth
* My case is near hopeless,

*
* -Edgeworth
* Every defense attorney I've

*
* -Phoenix
* What?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Simply put, they were
* afraid they'd lose.
*
* -Edgeworth
* It occurred to me that it

*
* -Edgeworth

December 25
Gourd Lake Park
Entrance

-Maya
This is where it happened?

-Phoenix
Yeah. Gourd Lake is in the
middle of this park.

-Maya
I can see some police
walking around in there.

-Phoenix
Questioning people, probably.

-Maya
Hey! Isn't that Detective
Gumshoe over there?

-Gumshoe
Well, pal!?

-Gumshoe
There's enough of us here!
Anyone found anything?

-Police
S-sorry, sir...
Nothing.

-Gumshoe
Idiot!
The trial's tomorrow!

-Gumshoe
We need clues, on
the double!

-Police
B-but, sir...

-Police
There weren't any clues...
that's why we arrested
that attorney, Mr. Edgeworth!

-Police
It's clear, sir.
He's the one who--

-Gumshoe
Shaddup!

-Gumshoe
Just you try saying that
again!

-Gumshoe
I'll... er... I'll make
you sorry if you do!

-Gumshoe
I mean... just, get
outta my face, pal!

-Police
Y-yes, sir!

-Maya
Detective Gumshoe's
kinda scary today!

-Gumshoe
Recruits... peh!

-Gumshoe
...

-Gumshoe
Aah!

-Maya
Eek!

-Gumshoe
Hey, you're that
Harry guy! Harry Butz!

-Phoenix
Wright! Phoenix Wright!
(Will he ever learn my name!?)

-Gumshoe
And just what are you doing
here, pal? Investigating!?

-Phoenix
Huh? Um, well, yes.
I suppose.

-Gumshoe
Well, I'm here to help!
Ask me anything you want!

-Gumshoe
Bring it!

-Maya
He seems different than usual.
I wonder what's up?

-Maya
Umm...

-Maya
Mr. Edgeworth hasn't actually
asked us to defend him yet...

-Gumshoe
Huh!?

-Gumshoe
Oh? Y-you don't say...

* No...

* fluffy-pink-clouds Lawyer.
*
* -Phoenix
* Head-in-the... huh?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Never mind, I'll tell you.
*
* -Gumshoe
* It happened last night, about
* 15 minutes after midnight.
*
* -Gumshoe
* There was a boat out
* on Gourd Lake.
*
* -Gumshoe
* In that boat were two men.
*
* -Gumshoe
* One of those men shot
* the other with a pistol.
*
* -Maya
* And... the shooter was
* Mr. Edgeworth?
*
* -Gumshoe
* A cop who arrived on the
* scene arrested him.
*
* -Maya
* How did he get there
* so fast?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Well...
*
* -Gumshoe
* There was a witness.
*
* -Gumshoe
* When the report came in,

* A witness?

********************************************

***Talk about "Edgeworth"*******************
*

* You don't think Mr. Edgeworth

*
* -Gumshoe
* Absolutely not!
* It's impossible!
*
* -Gumshoe
* I don't care if there's
* a witness either! I don't

*
* -Maya
* R-right! Who cares what
* the witness says!
*
* -Phoenix
* (I care!)

* ...
*
* -Maya
* You really believe in him,
* don't you, Detective?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Course I do!
*
* -Gumshoe
* But... the police are pretty
* sure he's the killer.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Nobody's even really taking
* this investigation that
* seriously.
*
* -Maya
* Oh no!
*
* -Gumshoe
* After all the help Mr.
* Edgeworth has been to us...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Hard to imaging that no one's

*
* -Maya
* Well, at least you are,
* Detective. At least you are.

***Talk about "Defense request"*************

* *
* * -Maya
* * What?

* *
* * -Gumshoe

* * -Gumshoe
* * Mr. Edgeworth won't tell me!

* * -Phoenix

Um, no, sir. Not yet.

-Gumshoe
A briefing?

-Gumshoe
Right!
I'm off!

Oh...

Sorry, pal.
I guess you heard. I gotta go.

Ah, right.

-Gumshoe
Here, I'll show you how
to get to the precinct. Come
down and see me anytime.

Detective Gumshoe gave you
directions to the police
station.

-Phoenix
Oh, hey!
Detective Gumshoe!

-Gumshoe
W-what!?

-Phoenix
Um, we'd like to take
a look around in the park.

-Phoenix
Can we walk around?

-Gumshoe
Yeah! No problem, pal.
You got my permission.

-Maya
You know, Nick.

-Maya
I think there's something to

Yeah. They don't have time to

Gourd Lake
Public Beach

-Maya
Wowsers!
This is "Gourd Lake"?

-Phoenix
Yup.

-Phoenix
I'm not sure it warrants
a "wowsers," though.

-Maya
Hmm. Probably not.

-Maya
But hey, look at
that snack stand!

-Phoenix
"Samurai Dogs"...?

-Maya
I wanna Samurai Dog!
Please!

-Maya
I bet they're great!

-Phoenix
With a name like Samurai Dog,
how could they not be?

-Maya
They're a little behind
the times, though.

-Maya
The kids are all into
"The Pink Princess" now.

-Maya
I mean, like, y'know!?

-Phoenix
(Nope.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Examine lake*****************************
*
* -Maya
* Wow.
* Gourd Lake is really big.
*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah.
*
* -Maya
* Say, Nick.
* Why is it called "Gourd Lake"?
*
* -Phoenix
* Oh.
*
* -Phoenix
* Well, a long time ago, they
* used to grow gourds here.
*
* -Maya
* Whoa! No way!
*
* -Maya
* I was sure it was because
* the lake looked like a gourd
* when viewed from above!
*
* -Maya
* You know, like an hourglass

*
* -Phoenix
* Well, it is shaped like a
* gourd, actually. But that's

* Oh.
* Okay.

Boat Rental Shop

Nick... what is this place?

-Phoenix
A boat rental shop.
Closed for Christmas
it seems.

-Phoenix
I guess a murder taking place
on one of the boats won't be
good for business, either.

-Maya
Boats...
I've never ridden on a boat.

-Phoenix
Really? Well, how about we
go out on one when the trial
is finished?

-Maya
Hey, good idea!
You bet!

They've got guts, camping

Hey, hey, Nick!

-Maya
If they were camping here

(That's true...)

Good call, Maya. Let's go

* I was just wondering, why

* made of aluminum.
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* They didn't talk about that
* in any of the law books.
*
* -Maya
* So, there's no law saying they
* have to be made out of
* aluminum, then!
*
* -Phoenix
* (I'm not having this

*
********************************************

***Examine blanket**************************

*
* -Lotta
* A pistol...?

* -Phoenix
* Right. Now wouldn't a gunshot

* Stand by Mr. Edgeworth!
*
* -Gumshoe
* He needs help, and you'r
* the ones to help him!
*
* -Gumshoe
* I'm sure he's got some reason

*
* -Maya
* Thanks, Detective Gumshoe.

***Talk about "Trusting Edgeworth"**********
*
* -Maya
* Detective Gumshoe...
*
* -Maya
* How come you trust
* Mr. Edgeworth so much?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Well, I'd think that
* was obvious.
*
* -Gumshoe
* We got a strong working
* relationship, us two.
*
* -Gumshoe
* We trust each other,
* and that's how it works.
*
* -Maya
* A "working relationship"?
*
* -Gumshoe
* See, Mr. Edgeworth always
* gets his defendants declared
* "guilty" every time.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Yeah, his methods might be
* a little extreme at times.
*
* -Gumshoe
* But... there's a reason!
*
* -Gumshoe
* He trusts our investigation,
* see? He trusts us to get the
* right man!
*
* -Gumshoe
* That's why I work
* extra hard, pal.
*
* -Gumshoe
* We've got to earn that
* trust he places in us.
*
* -Maya
* I see...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Mr. Edgeworth is a man
* you can trust...
*
* -Gumshoe
* And you have my
* word on that!
*

***Talk about "The autopsy report"**********
*
* -Phoenix
* I was wondering, did you
* ever get that autopsy report?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Oh, that?
* Yeah, I made a copy for you.
*
* Added Autopsy Report to

Hey y'all!

-Maya
Lotta!

-Lotta
Wait up a sec!
We got bingo!

-Maya
Bingo...?

-Lotta
My automatic camera took two
pictures last night!

-Maya
Hey!

-Lotta
This is them.
Take a look!

-Phoenix
Wait...!

-Lotta
See? See? He's shooting
him with that pistol!

-Phoenix
I-it looks like that, yes.

-Maya
But you can't really tell
who that is shooting.

-Lotta
Yeah, well there was enough
fog out there last night t'
strangle a bullfrog.

-Lotta
But, y'know...

-Lotta
Seeing these photos
reminded me of something.

-Maya
What...?

-Lotta
I saw the murder happen.
I'm a witness!

-Maya
Whaaaaaaa!?

-Phoenix
A-are you serious!?

-Lotta
Course!

-Phoenix
(How do you forget...
never mind.)

-Lotta
Y'all reckon I should
tell the cops?

Hey, so, I'm off to talk

Y'all can have this photo.

Later.

W-w-wait!
Lotta!

-Lotta
What?
Can't y'all see
I'm kinda busy?

-Phoenix
T-tell us what you
saw, too! Please?

-Loota
Nice try, honey, but I
wasn't born yesterday.

-Lotta
I'm a witness, and that means
I'm on the side of justice,
and that means the cops!

-Lotta
I'd sooner eat the south side
of a north-bound skunk than
tell you!

-Maya
L-Lotta!

-Lotta
Don't let it get your skivvies
in a bunch. Friends today,
enemies tomorrow!

-Lotta
Or was that the other way
round? No matter. I'm gone!

-Lotta
Hey! Maybe they'll let me
do some testifying! Hot darn!

-Maya
She left...

-Maya
...

-Maya
Well, that's one more
witness. What do we do
now, Nick?

-Phoenix
(Well, if she saw something,
there's not much we can do
about it.)

Phoenix
(The question is: what exactly
did she see...?)

-Phoenix
(I guess we'll find out
in the trial tomorrow.)

* What? Edgey's got a

* No, no--he's a "prosecuting

* -Maya
* That's like the total opposite
* of a defense lawyer!
*
* -Butz
* ...
*
* -Butz
* Huh.
* Go figure!
*
* -Butz
* He always used to talk about
* defending the "weak" who were
* "unable to defend themselves."

* -Butz
* Man, he used to go on and
* on about man's duty to society

*
* -Maya
* I bet he gave it to some
* romantic interest! Love
* blooms eternal, Nick!
*
* -Phoenix
* Uh... yeah.
*

***Present Attorney's Badge*****************
*
* -Grossberg
* You've really grown up in the
* past few years, my dear!
*
* -Grossberg
* How proud Mia would be
* if she could see you now!
*
* -Maya
* She said she was more
* worried about me than
* anything.
*
* -Phoenix
* Aww, just go on and take
* the compliment, will you?
*
********************************************

***Present Lotta's Camera*******************
*
* -Grossberg
* So, this camera on the lake
* takes a photo whenever it
* hears an explosion sound?
*
* -Maya
* That's what she said.
*
* -Grossberg
* And it just happened to
* be set up on the beach,
* pointing out on the lake?
*
* -Maya
* Yes... she said it was to
* photograph "shooting stars."
*
* -Grossberg
* Hmm... Shooting stars...
* explosions... what's the
* connection?
*
* -Grossberg
* I'd be suspicious of
* this witness of yours.
*
********************************************

***Present Autopsy Report*******************
*
* -Grossberg
* Hmm? Strange...
*
* -Grossberg
* I feel as though I've seen
* this man somewhere before!
*
* -Grossberg
* ...
*
* -Grossberg
* Aaaaaaaaaaaaah!
*
* -Phoenix
* Did you remember!?
*
* -Grossberg
* He was a lawyer!
* Here, in my office!
*
* -Grossberg
* That's Hammond!
* Robert Hammond!
*
* -Maya
* Mr. Hammond...?
*
* -Grossberg
* And you say this is the man
* Miles Edgeworth shot?
*
********************************************

***Present Lake Photo***********************
*
* -Grossberg
* So this is the moment
* the crime took place, eh?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yes.
*
* -Grossberg
* You can't really say for
* sure that's Edgeworth.
*
* -Grossberg
* I'm not sure whether that's
* a good thing or a bad thing.
*
* -Grossberg
* Not sure at all...
*
********************************************

***Present other****************************
*
* -Grossberg
* Er... my apologies.
*
* -Grossberg
* I'm not sure I can
* help you with that.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "What happened"***************
*
* -Phoenix
* There was a murder
* last night...
*
* -Grossberg
* A murder?
*
* -Phoenix
* You haven't heard...?
*
* -Grossberg
* I, er, just got up, you see.
*
* -Phoenix
* Well, Miles Edgeworth shot
* someone with a pistol.
*
* -Grossberg
* Edgeworth!? What!?
*
* -Grossberg
* W-who!?
*
* -Phoenix
* Well, the identity of the
* victim is still unknown.
*
* -Grossberg
* T-this is terrible
* news indeed!
*
* -Phoenix
* (I guess he hadn't heard
* anything...)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "That painting"***************
*
* -Phoenix
* Mr. Grossberg? Whatever
* happened to that painting?
*
* -Grossberg
* Oh, yes...
*
* -Grossberg
* I do not think it shall
* ever be coming back home
* to this office.
*
* -Grossberg
* I can't exactly claim it
* as stolen...
*
* -Grossberg
* I suppose it's my just
* desserts.
* Old, bitter desserts.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Robert Hammond"**************
*
* -Phoenix
* Who is this Hammond guy,
* anyway?
*
* -Grossberg
* Mr. Hammond...
*
* -Grossberg
* He was the defense attorney
* in that case...
*
* -Phoenix
* "That case"...?
*
* -Grossberg
* Yes, the "DL-6 Incident."
*
* -Phoenix
* "DL-6"...?
* (Why does that sound
* so familiar?)
*
* -Grossberg
* Perhaps you remember?
*
* -Phoenix
* (I'm sure someone mentioned it
* during the trial for Mia's
* murder.)
*
* -Grossberg
* That was the incident where
* the police were so at a loss
* they used a spirit medium.
*
* -Maya
* ...!
*
* -Maya
* Wait... you don't mean?
*
* -Maya
* Was that medium my mother?
*
* -Grossberg
* Yes, my dear.
*
* -Grossberg
* The spirit medium, Misty Fey,
* your mother, contacted the
* spirit of the victim.
*
* -Grossberg
* But... the case was a loss.
* No conviction was made.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The DL6 Incident"************
*
* -Grossberg
* The DL-6 Incident, yes...
*
* -Grossberg
* Happened 15 years ago.
* A very strange case, indeed.
*
* -Phoenix
* They never caught the
* criminal, right?
*
* -Grossberg
* Correct.
*
* -Grossberg
* Misty Fey used her powers to
* talk to the spirit of the late
* victim.
*
* -Grossberg
* Her testimony led to charges
* being laid against one man.
*
* -Grossberg
* But Mr. Hammond won the case
* and the suspect was declared
* innocent.
*
* -Maya
* ...
*
* -Maya
* And the police blamed my
* mother, calling her a fraud.
*
* -Maya
* You were the one who helped
* her out then, right,
* Mr. Grossberg?
*
* -Grossberg
* Er... y-yes. Yes, quite.
*
* -Maya
* Thank you!
*
* -Grossberg
* N-no... please.
* D-don't mention it.
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* (DL-6...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Never thought I'd hear that
* name again...)
*
* -Maya
* But wait...
*
* -Maya
* What does that case have
* anything to do with Mr.
* Edgeworth?
*
* -Grossberg
* It has everything to do
* with Mr. Edgeworth, my dear!
*
* -Grossberg
* The victim in the DL-6 Incident
* was none other than his
* father, Gregory Edgeworth!
*
* -Maya
* Wh-what!?
* His father!?
*
* -Grossberg
* ...
*
* -Grossberg
* If you want to know more,
* you should ask him yourself.
*
* CONTINUE IF FIRST TIME
*
* -Grossberg
* Show him this...
* I'm sure he'll talk to you.
*
* -Maya
* Wait...
*
* -Maya
* This is a photograph of
* my mother!
*
* Misty Fey's Photo added
* to the Court Record.
*
********************************************

***Present Misty Fey's Photo****************
*
* -Grossberg
* Misty Fey.
*
* -Grossberg
* Mother of Mia and Maya Fey.
*
* -Grossberg
* Show this photograph to
* Miles Edgeworth.
*
* -Grossberg
* He'll have something to
* say to you then.

Eek!

W-what's wrong, Detective?

-Gumshoe
This wild lady comes
in here just a while ago...

-Gumshoe
Says she came "to talk to
y'all after hearing what
Mr. Wright had to say"!

-Gumshoe
What's this all about, pal!?

-Phoenix
(Lotta Hart...)

-Gumshoe
Why are you going around
finding more witnesses!?

-Gumshoe
You want to give Mr. Edgeworth
the death sentence, pal!?

-Phoenix
N-no, not at all...

-Phoenix
Just... I mean, she did see
something. There's nothing
I can do about that.

-Phoenix
I can't go around covering
up evidence!

-Gumshoe
Er...

-Gumshoe
You trying to say something
about the way I do my job?

-Phoenix
No sir!

***Examine detective************************
*
* -Phoenix

* Hey, pal, there's only one

*
* -Gumshoe
* And that's a letter of request
* from Mr. Edgeworth for you to
* be his defense attorney!
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Lotta's testimony"***********
*
* -Phoenix
* So... what did Ms. Hart say?
*
* -Gumshoe
* She says she saw Mr. Edgeworth
* fire the pistol.
*
* -Maya
* What!?
*
* -Gumshoe
* She even had a photograph
* to prove it.
*
* -Phoenix
* Right.
* I saw it too...
*
* -Phoenix
* But you really can't tell
* from the photo who it is
* shooting.
*
* -Gumshoe
* That's why she said she's
* going to enlarge the photo.
*
* -Gumshoe
* She said "it'll drop the
* quality a mite, but should
* let us see who's who!"
*
* -Maya
* She can do that!?
*
* -Phoenix
* (OKay, so there's going to be
* an enlarged photograph that
* shows Edgeworth in the act.)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Great. Just great.)
*
* -Gumshoe
* In any case, she's going to be
* the one testifying tomorrow.
*
* -Maya
* Huh?
*
* -Maya
* What happened to the other
* witness?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Well...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Apparently, there was a
* cancellation.
*
* -Phoenix
* (A "cancellation"...!?)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Tomorrow's trial"************
*
* -Gumshoe
* I'm afraid tomorrow is going
* to be life or death for poor
* Mr. Edgeworth.
*
* -Gumshoe
* We got a witness who says
* she saw the very moment of
* the murder.
*
* -Gumshoe
* And we got a photo taken
* when the shot rang out.
*
* -Phoenix
* (I'd say that sounds like a
* pretty unwinnable case...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (But wait...
* What did Mia used to say?)
*
* -Phoenix
* (If he's innocent, there's
* got to be something I've
* overlooked...)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Edgeworth"*******************
*
* -Gumshoe
* It sounds like Mr. Edgeworth
* is going to ask the state to
* assign a public defender.
*
* -Gumshoe
* I was just asked to file
* the paperwork.
*
* -Gumshoe
* But you still got time, pal!
*
* -Gumshoe
* Go talk to him again,
* for me, please!
*
* -Gumshoe
* You have to convince him!
*
* -Gumshoe
* You have to make him let
* you defend him! Please!
*
* -Gumshoe
* I know you're the only one
* who can do it, pal.

* -Gumshoe
* You're the only one who
* can save Mr. Edgeworth!

I was hoping you'd gotten

-Phoenix
Edgeworth, what about
your defense?

-Edgeworth
...!

-Edgeworth
It's no concern of yours.

-Phoenix
(Guess he hasn't found
anyone yet.)

***Talk about "What happened"***************
*

* Can I ask you about

*
* -Edgeworth
* Wright.

* I'll ask you again,

* Please try to understand.

* I'm not doing this to prove

* Yet you've made incredible

*
* -Edgeworth
* I'll admit it, I'm impressed,

*
* -Edgeworth
* You were always single-
* minded in your work, though.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Once you start on something,
* you always see it through,
* don't you?
*
* -Phoenix
* About the "DL-6 Incident"...
*
* -Edgeworth
* Right... DL-6.
*
* -Edgeworth
* I didn't want you to
* find out about it.
*
* -Edgeworth
* That is why I refused your
* offer to defend me.
*
* -Edgeworth
* I'm sorry if it sounded
* like I thought you weren't
* up to the job.
*
* -Edgeworth
* I just wanted to keep

*
* -Phoenix
* So... do you still think
* it would have been better
* for me to stay away?
*
* -Edgeworth
* I don't know.

* -Edgeworth
* But...
*
* -Edgeworth
* I see no point in hiding

*
* -Edgeworth
* Very well.

* Ask whatever you like, and
* I will answer to the best

********************************************

***Talk about "The DL6 Incident"***********
*
* -Edgeworth
* The "DL-6 Incident"...
* was when my father died.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Right before my eyes...
*
* -Edgeworth
* He was shot and killed,
* and I saw it all.
*
* -Maya
* ...!
*
* -Edgeworth
* My memories from that
* time are... foggy.
*
* -Edgeworth
* I suppose it's a self-defense
* mechanism.
*
* -Edgeworth
* In any case, a suspect
* was arrested... a man.
*
* -Edgeworth
* It's pretty clear he was the
* only one who could have killed
* my father.
*
* -Edgeworth
* The spirit medium they used to
* talk to my late father said
* the same thing.
*
* -Edgeworth
* It was an attorney by the name
* of Robert Hammond that cleared
* the suspect's name.
*
* -Phoenix
* And Hammond... is the victim
* in the Gourd Lake murder?
*
* -Edgeworth
* Correct.
*
* -Maya
* Umm...
*
* -Maya
* That spirit medium...
* that was my mom.
*
* -Edgeworth
* What? You mean you're...?
*
* -Edgeworth
* ...
*
* -Edgeworth
* It's strange.
*
* -Edgeworth
* I thought that terrible
* incident was about to end,
* and now... this.
*
* -Phoenix
* "About to end"?
*
* -Edgeworth
* The DL-6 Incident happened
* 15 years ago.
*
* -Edgeworth
* 15 years ago...
* on December 28.
*
* -Maya
* December 28?
*
* -Edgeworth
* The statute of limitations
* on the case runs out in
* three days.
*
* -Phoenix
* What!?
*
* -Maya
* Um, Nick?
* What does that mean?
*
* -Phoenix
* When a case's statute of
* limitations runs out, legally,
* the case never happened.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Three days from now, DL-6
* will be closed... forever.
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The suspect"*****************
*
* -Maya
* What happened to the suspect?
* The one who got off innocent?
*
* -Edgeworth
* I don't know...
*
* -Edgeworth
* He disappeared from public
* view. Nobody knows where to.
*
* -Edgeworth
* If he's still alive, he'd
* be about 50 years old now.
*
* -Phoenix
* (I guess I can understand
* why he'd go into hiding...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (It'd be hard to live a normal
* life after being a murder
* suspect in such a big case.)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Your father"*****************
*
* -Maya
* Umm... so, was your
* father a lawyer?
*
* -Edgeworth
* He was...
*
* -Edgeworth
* Gregory Edgeworth.
* He was quite famous at
* the time, apparently.
*
* -Maya
* So, you were sort of trying
* to follow in his footsteps.
*
* -Edgeworth
* ...
*
* -Edgeworth
* I'd rather not talk about it.
*
********************************************

AFTER TALKING ABOUT EVERYTHING IMPORTANT

Yes... Will you?

***Of course we will***********************

Pay me back?

For what?
I don't remember ever doing

-Phoenix
Never mind... I guess you
don't really need to know.

-Edgeworth
Huh...

-Edgeworth
My letter of request.
Please give it to
Detective Gumshoe.

Edgeworth's Request put
in pocket.

-Phoenix
Well, I guess we should...

...?

-Phoenix
W-what's that!?

E-earthquake!
Nick!

-Maya
It's a big one!

-Maya
Whaaaaa!

I-it's calming down...

-Maya
...

-Maya
Whew... that was scary!

-Phoenix
...?

-Phoenix
Huh? Where's Edgeworth?

-Maya
...

-Maya
There.

-Maya
He's on the floor in
a ball, shivering.

-Maya
I guess he doesn't do
so well with earthquakes.

-Phoenix
(I've heard of running, but
curling up in a ball?)

-Maya
Well, I guess we're done.

-Maya
Mr. Edgeworth doesn't seem
like he's going to stand up
any time soon.

-Maya
Let's go, Nick.

-Phoenix
Uh... right.

-Phoenix
We have to give Edgeworth's
letter of request to Detective
Gumshoe.

* We're fine! I've lived out

*
* -Gumshoe
* I was worried about

*
* -Gumshoe
* Yeah, well, I'm not surprised.
* It was a pretty big quake.

* -Gumshoe
* I'm going to go check on him.

* I wonder...
*
* -Phoenix
* He was never that scared
* of them when he was in
* school.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Then again, I was only in

* 4th grade.)

December 26, 9:44 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 2

-Phoenix
Karma...?

-Edgeworth
That's right, Manfred von
Karma. He's the best
prosecutor there is.

-Edgeworth
He hasn't lost a case
in his 40-year career.

-Edgeworth
He is a god of prosecution,
Wright! A god!

-Maya
Not a single case?

-Edgeworth
He'll do anything to get
a guilty verdict, anything.

-Phoenix
Hmm. Sounds like someone
else I know, Edgeworth.

-Edgeworth
Hmph.

-Edgeworth
You don't understand.

-Edgeworth
I mean he'll really do
anything. Manfred von Karma
is a man to be feared.

-Phoenix
(That's quite a claim coming
from someone who forges
evidence...)

-Edgeworth
He taught me what it really
means to "prosecute."

-Phoenix
Wh-what!?

-Edgeworth
Just picture a prosecutor
as vicious as me... multiplied
by a factor of ten.

-Maya
Ugh...

-Maya
So... so was he your teacher,
then, Mr. Edgeworth?

-Edgeworth
Something like that...

-Maya
And now he's trying to
get you found guilty!?
What a creep!

-Maya
Oh, wait...

-Maya
Maybe he's planning on losing
on purpose to help you out!

-Edgeworth
Not a chance...

-Edgeworth
He hasn't lost once in
40 years. 40 years!

-Edgeworth
He's as ruthless as me,
times twenty!

-Maya
That's pretty ruthless...

-Edgeworth
Like I said. He's a god
among prosecutors.

-Phoenix
(I guess that's something
like Mia was to me.)

-Phoenix
(Speaking of Mia...)

-Phoenix
Um, Maya?

-Maya
Uh huh?

-Phoenix
We could really be using Mia's
help right now... don't
you think?

-Maya
Oh...

-Phoenix
?

-Maya
I can't.

-Maya
Sorry. I tried, I really
tried, but I couldn't reach.

-Phoenix
You couldn't "reach"?

-Maya
I think it's because I
haven't been training.

-Maya
My powers are weak again...

-Phoenix
Oh man, what bad timing!

-Maya
I'm really sorry.

-Maya
I'll try my best!

-Phoenix
I hope so!

-Edgeworth
What are you whispering about?

-Phoenix
O-oh, it's nothing.

-Phoenix
Well, it's time.
Let's head in...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

December 26, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 3

Court is now in session for
the trial of Mr. Miles
Edgeworth.

-Phoenix
The defense is ready,
Your Honor.

-Karma
...

-Judge
Erm, Mr. von Karma?
Is the prosecution ready?

-Karma
...

-Karma
Fool...

-Karma
You seriously think that
I would stand here were
I not completely prepared?

-Judge
R-right,
my apologies!

-Phoenix
(He's even got the Judge
scared!)

-Judge
Very well, your opening
statement, please.

-Karma
...

-Karma
Decisive evidence...

-Karma
A decisive witness...

-Karma
What else could possibly
be required?

-Judge
Ah... er, nothing of course.
That should be fine.

-Judge
The prosecution may call
its first witness.

-Maya
What's with this guy? Is he
royalty or something?

-Phoenix
How am I supposed to fight
against this!?

-Karma
I call the detective in charge
of this case, Detective Dick
Gumshoe.

-Phoenix
(Okay, Gumshoe's first...
Let's see how this goes.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Karma
Describe the incident. Now!

-Gumshoe
Y-yessir!

-Phoenix
(Detective Gumshoe looks
nervous...)

-Gumshoe
Er, please take a look
at the map.

-Gumshoe
The murder happened late
Christmas Eve, around
midnight.

-Gumshoe
There was one boat in the
very middle of the lake.

-Gumshoe
There were two men
on the boat.

-Gumshoe
Now, there happened to
be a woman camping here
on the edge of the lake.

-Gumshoe
At 12:10 AM, she heard two
pistol shots.

-Gumshoe
Then the boat started to move.

-Gumshoe
It went towards the boat
rental shop.

-Karma
Hmm.

Overhead Map added to
the Court Record.

-Karma
Testify to the court
about your arrest. Now!

-Judge
W-w-wait!
Mr. von Karma...

-Karma
Yes?

-Judge
Actually, I'm the one
that's supposed to be
handling these proceedings...

-Karma
Wrong. There is only one
thing you need to do here.

-Karma
You will slam down your
gavel and say the word
"guilty." That is your role!

-Judge
Y-yes, of course.
You're quite right.

-Phoenix
(No he's not!!!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Arrest of Edgeworth --

(1)
-Gumshoe
A man called into the station
around 30 minutes after
midnight.

(2)
-Gumshoe
We headed to the scene of
the crime as fast as we could.

(3)
-Gumshoe
That's where we found
Mr. Edgeworth.

(4)
-Gumshoe
Now, I didn't suspect
him of anything at all.

(5)
-Gumshoe
But... the next morning,
a body was found in the lake.

(6)
-Gumshoe
So we had to arrest
Mr. Edgeworth.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm... I see.
Very well...

-Karma
Begin your cross-examination,
attorney. Now!

-Judge
...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Arrest of Edgeworth --

(1)
-Gumshoe
A man called into the station
around 30 minutes after
midnight.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   You received a call from
   a "man"?

   -Gumshoe
   Er... yup.

   -Phoenix
   But you said there was
   a woman camping there?

   -Phoenix
   She was the one who
   heard the two gunshots, right?

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   That woman and the "man" who
   called in the report are two
   different people, obviously!

   -Phoenix
   Different people?

   -Karma
   There were two witnesses!

   -Phoenix
   (Urk!)

   -Karma
   Their testimonies were
   quite similar however.

   -Karma
   Today I've summoned the
   woman who was camping.

   -Phoenix
   (The woman who was camping...
   Lotta Hart.)

   -Karma
   What happened next, Detective?

(2)
-Gumshoe
We headed to the scene of
the crime as fast as we could.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   How long was it between
   receiving the report and your
   arrival at te lake?

   -Gumshoe
   Er, well... I'd say it
   was about three minutes.

   -Phoenix
   That's pretty fast!

   -Gumshoe
   Our motto for the month
   is "get there quick."

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   Detective! You will refrain
   from casually revealing
   department secrets!

   -Gumshoe
   Y-yessir!
   Sorry, sir!

   -Karma
   Do that, and you'll be able
   to look forward to your next
   salary review.

   -Gumshoe
   So much to look forward
   to, these days...

   -Karma
   This is no time for
   daydreaming! Continue!

   -Gumshoe
   Y-yessir!

(3)
-Gumshoe
That's where we found
Mr. Edgeworth.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What was Mr. Edgeworth like
   when you saw him then?

   -Gumshoe
   Well...

   -Gumshoe
   From what I saw, he looked
   pretty relaxed. Not like a
   murderer at all, really.

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   Detective! The court requires
   the facts, NOT your opinion!

   -Karma
   How many years have you
   been on the force!?

   -Karma
   Facts only, Detective!
   Hard, cold, objective facts!

   -Gumshoe
   Y-y-yessir!

   -Phoenix
   (Man, he's got his share
   of objections...)

(4)
-Gumshoe
Now, I didn't suspect
him of anything at all.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Why didn't you think he
   was suspicious?

   -Gumshoe
   You should know!

   -Gumshoe
   We have a deep, trusting
   relationship with the
   prosecutors.

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   Detective! The court isn't
   interested in your musings!

   -Karma
   "Deep"? "Trusting"?
   Poppycock!

   -Karma
   I've never heard so many
   flippant comments from an
   active detective on the force!

   -Gumshoe
   Mmph!

   -Phoenix
   (Detective Gumshoe doesn't
   look so good...)

   -Karma
   Continue! Now!

(5)
-Gumshoe
But... the next morning,
a body was found in the lake.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Did you find any clues
   on the body?

   -Gumshoe
   A single bullet was recovered
   from the body.

   -Gumshoe
   He was shot through the
   heart... fatally.

   CONTINUE FOR FIRST TIME ONLY

   -Karma
   Judge!
   Here's the bullet...

   -Karma
   It didn't strike bone, so its
   shape is well preserved.

   -Judge
   Very well. The court accepts
   this bullet into evidence.

   Pistol Bullet added to
   the Court Record.

   END CROSS-EXAMINATION IF PISTOL POSSESSED

(6a)
-Gumshoe
So we had to arrest
Mr. Edgeworth.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   W-why is that?

   -Gumshoe
   Well, we found the murder
   weapon in the boat.

   -Phoenix
   The murder weapon...?

   -Gumshoe
   A pistol.

   -Judge
   Detective Gumshoe...

   -Judge
   That is a vital piece of
   information. Please revise
   your testimony.

   -Gumshoe
   Right! S-sorry, Your Honor.

   Change to 6b

(6b)
-Gumshoe
The murder weapon we found
in the boat was decisive
evidence.

   -Phoenix
   What about the pistol made
   it "decisive evidence"?

   -Karma
   Tsk tsk tsk...

   -Phoenix
   (Ack! He has the same evil
   laugh as Edgeworth...)

   -Gumshoe
   There were fingerprints on the
   pistol found in the boat.

   -Gumshoe
   They were clear prints from
   Mr. Edgeworth's right hand.

   -Phoenix
   Wh-what!?

   CONTINUE FOR FIRST TIME ONLY

   -Judge
   Order! Order!

   -Judge
   So Mr. Edgeworth's finger-
   prints were found on the
   murder weapon!?

   -Gumshoe
   Y-yes, Your Honor.

   -Karma
   Judge!
   This is the weapon
   in question.

   -Judge
   A-accepted into evidence.

   Pistol added to
   the Court Record.

   END CROSS-EXAMINATION IF PISTOL BULLET POSSESSED

-Maya
Nick.

-Maya
Doesn't it seem like
Detective Gumshoe is
being a little vague?

-Phoenix
I bet von Karma
is feeding him lines!

-Phoenix
His testimony's probably
filled with landmines just
waiting for me to press.

-Maya
What do we do?

-Phoenix
Grit our teeth and press,
I guess. What else can we do?

-Maya
Well said, Nick!
You're the man!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Karma
Members of the court...

-Karma
We now have the pistol used
in the murder, and the bullet
found in the body!

-Karma
Detective!

-Gumshoe
Y-y-yessir!

-Karma
Was the bullet found in the
body fired from this pistol?

-Gumshoe
Yes. The ballistic markings on
the bullet match the pistol.

-Judge
Hmm...

-Maya
Hey, Nick!

-Maya
What does he mean,
"ballistic markings"?

-Karma
Shocking!

-Karma
To imagine someone here does
not know something as basic
as ballistic markings!

-Maya
N-Nick! He's glaring at me!

-Karma
Tsk... very well,
I'll explain.

-Karma
Actually, Judge!
You do it.

-Judge
Eh? M-me?

-Judge
...

-Judge
Erm, ahem.

-Judge
Ballistic markings are like
the "fingerprints" of a gun.

-Judge
The barrel leaves distinctive
marks on each bullet it
fires.

-Judge
You can examine these
"ballistic fingerprints" to
see which gun fired the shot.

-Judge
It's quite accurate.

-Karma
Indeed.

-Karma
This leads to one, inevitable
conclusion: the bullet found
in the victim's heart...

-Karma
was, without a doubt,
fired from this pistol.

-Karma
This pistol which, as you may
recall, was covered with the
defendant's own fingerprints!

-Judge
O-order! Order!

-Phoenix
(This is bad...)

-Phoenix
(This makes it look like
Edgeworth did it!)

-Karma
Well, Judge?

-Judge
I'd say it's almost
decisive, yes.

-Judge
Honestly, I could declare
a verdict at this point.

-Judge
However...

-Karma
You wish to hear the witness
speak, no doubt.

-Karma
Very well.

-Karma
I am somewhat fatigued, and
so I will take a brief break.

-Karma
I will call my witness
after the recess.

-Karma
Which will last ten minutes.

-Karma
Judge!

-Judge
Y-yes?

-Karma
What are you doing?
A ten minute recess! Now!

-Judge
B-but, wait, I...

-Karma
Just bang your flimsy gavel
and get on with it, man!

-Judge
Y-yes!

-Judge
Ahem. This court will take
a ten minute recess.

-Phoenix
(Who's running this court,
anyway!?)

District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 2

-Phoenix
Edgeworth!
What's going on here!?

-Phoenix
Your fingerprints were
on the murder weapon!

-Edgeworth
Uh... hmm...

-Phoenix
And that foggy photo
makes one thing clear...

-Phoenix
The only one who could have
shot that man was the person
in the photo!

-Edgeworth
True...

-Phoenix
Was that you in the boat?

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Yes. It was me.

-Phoenix
What!?

-Edgeworth
But... you must believe
me. I didn't shoot him.

-Phoenix
Th-then who did!?

-Edgeworth
I... don't know.

-Phoenix
You don't know!?
Weren't you right there!?

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
I heard a gunshot from
very close by.

-Edgeworth
Then... the other man
fell from the boat.

-Edgeworth
I can't say why, but...

-Edgeworth
I thought, at the time, that
he had shot himself!

-Phoenix
Y-you mean it was a suicide!?

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
That's the only explanation
I can come up with.

-Phoenix
Huh...
(How am I going to convince
anyone of that!?)

-Phoenix
Say, Maya?

-Maya
Huh? Wh-what?

-Phoenix
Any progress with Mia?

-Maya
Oh...

-Maya
Sorry.
It's no good.

-Phoenix
Ugh...

-Maya
I know...

-Maya
I'm no good for anything,
am I, Nick?

-Maya
If I can't call my sister,
I might as well not be
here, right?

Court is back in session.

-Judge
Mr. von Karma, call
your witness.

-Karma
Yes.

-Karma
Will Ms. Lotta Hart
take the stand?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Karma
Lotta Hart, you are a
research student at a
university?

-Lotta
That I am.

-Karma
Good. Begin by telling us
what you saw the night of
the incident.

-Karma
And don't add anything
trivial or subjective.

-Karma
Understand?

-Lotta

-Lotta
Y'all need to learn
some manners.

WITNESS TESTIMONY

(1)
-Lotta
It was Christmas Eve, just
after midnight, I reckon.

(2)
-Lotta
I was in my car.

(3)
-Lotta
I heard this "bang"
come up from the lake.

(4)
-Lotta
When I looked out the
window, I saw two gents
in a boat.

(5)
-Lotta
Then there was another
"bang"...

(6)
-Lotta
There wasn't nary a thing
on the lake but that boat.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Karma
Enough.

-Lotta
Huh?

-Karma
Judge!

-Karma
She happened to take
a photo of the incident!

-Karma
This is that photo.
Accept it as evidence.

-Judge
W-well! This is a surprise!

-Judge
This looks like... the very
moment of the murder!

-Judge
O-Order! I will remove you
from the court if I do not
have order immediately!

-Karma
As the witness testified,
she looked at the lake when
she heard the shot.

-Karma
There were no other boats
on that lake!

-Karma
So, the man in the boat with
the victim must have been the
one who shot him...

-Karma
Yes. It was the defendant,
Miles Edgeworth!!!

-Judge
Order! Order! Order...!
I will have order!

-Karma
...

-Karma
Well, Judge?

-Judge
The evidence is... decisive.

-Judge
I have very little doubt
about this case.

-Judge
Very well, this court finds
the defendant...

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
W-wait! Your Honor!

-Phoenix
I haven't cross-examined
the witness yet!

-Karma
A cross-examination?

-Karma
We have photographic proof!
What question can there
possibly be!?

-Karma
This photo is worth a thousand
words... and they all read
"guilty"!

-Karma
You lose.

-Karma
Or...

-Karma
Do you claim to have found
a contradiction in her
testimony!?

-Phoenix
...!

-Karma
Very well. If you have to, you
may cross-examine the witness.

-Karma
You will only flounder and
ask meaningless questions!

-Karma
You will fail to find
anything!

-Karma
And then, I will have you
held in contempt of court!

-Maya
Uh, Nick... contempt...?

-Phoenix
"Contempt of court," you know?

-Maya
I... guess I understand.

-Maya
Well... what are you
going to do?

-Maya
Do you really think there
was a contradiction with the
facts in her testimony?

*
* -Phoenix 
* But if we mess up...

-Lotta
There wasn't nary a thing
on the lake but that boat.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   Are you sure about that?

   Yeah, sure as a country

END AFTER PRESSING ON MOST OF TESTIMONY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Enough!

-Judge
I think we've heard all we
need to hear, Mr. Wright.

-Judge
It seems you are unable to
find a contradiction in the
testimony worth noting.

-Phoenix
B-but, Your Honor!

-Karma
You keep your promise!

-Judge
Mr. Wright.

-Judge
I am afraid that I will
have to penalize any
further outbursts...

-Judge
By holding you in
contempt of court!

-Karma
And if that happens,
you'll have to leave the
courtroom immediately!

-Karma
Understood...?

-Phoenix
Uh... uh huh.

-Maya
Nick...!

-Maya
Lotta's testimony is
fishy, Nick! Real fishy!

-Phoenix
I... know what you mean.

-Phoenix
But...

-Phoenix
If I can't say anything,
what can I do?

-Judge
I believe we've covered
the evidence sufficiently
to make a decision.

-Karma
Then, pass your judgment!

-Judge
Very well.

-Judge
Mr. Miles Edgeworth,
please take the stand.

-???
*HOLD IT!*

-Judge
Wh-who was that!?

-Maya
It... was me.

-Phoenix
(Maya!)

-Judge
I-is something wrong?
D-do you need to use
the facilities?

-Maya
No, I do not!

-Maya
Lotta Hart!

-Maya
Your testimony stinks!

-Maya
It's unclear whether you
were actually looking at
the lake!

-Maya
It's highly doubtful that
you actually saw
Mr. Edgeworth!

-Maya
Tell us the truth!

-Maya
This is a matter
of life or death!

-Lotta
...!

-Maya
Lotta!

-Maya
Did you really clearly
see Mr. Edgeworth that night!?

-Maya
Did you see him fire
that pistol!?

-Judge
You will stand down!

-Judge
The court does not acknowledge
the defense's outburst!

-Maya
Answer me, Lotta!

-Lotta
What's the big idea,
treating me like some
kind of criminal!?

-Lotta
I saw him! I swear it!
I saw Edgeworth...

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
Enough!

-Karma
Judge...

-Karma
Declare the defense in
contempt of court!

-Judge
Y-yes... yes, of course.

-Judge
I'm sorry, but you
WERE warned.

-Judge
Guard! Escort Mr. Wright
out of the courtroom!

-Judge
He is in contempt of
court, and must leave.

-Phoenix
(No...)

-Phoenix
(No...!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wait!

-Maya
I-I was the one who made
the outburst, Your Honor!

-Maya
Nick is innocent!

-Karma
Hah!

-Karma
What's the difference?

-Karma
All that remains is for
the guilty verdict to be
declared!

Isn't that right,
Mr. Phoenix Wright!?

-Phoenix
Did you hear what Ms. Hart
just said?

-Phoenix
She said she clearly
saw Mr. Edgeworth!

That was not in the

That changes her testimony,

cross-examine her again!

-Judge
Order! Order! Order!
Order! Order! Order!

-Karma
You're in contempt of

Sustain my objection!

-Judge
I'm sorry, Mr. von Karma,
but I cannot.

-Karma
What!?

-Judge
Ms. Lotta Hart has made
a new testimony.

-Judge
The defense does have a right
to cross-examine her again.

-Karma
B-but he is in contempt
of court!

-Maya
No, I am!

-Maya
If you're going to arrest
someone, arrest me!

Hmm...

Very well.

Maya Fey!

You will leave the

Listen well, Mr. Wright!

Mr. Wright! Begin your
cross-examination!

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- That Last Statement --

(1)
-Lotta
I saw it clear as day.
The man on the boat
was Mr. Edgeworth!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Well, what about the
   other man?

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   You cannot expect to be
   allowed to blithely ignore
   your promise, Mr. Wright!

   -Karma
   I believe you claimed there
   was a contradiction in the
   witness's testimony!

   -Karma
   Well, find it!

   -Karma
   If you can!

   -Judge
   Mr. Wright, I have to
   assign you a penalty.

   -Phoenix
   (Damn...!)

-Phoenix
(That's it...?)

-Phoenix
(Uh oh. I don't know if
I can find anything
in that...)

-Phoenix
(What will Maya say...?)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Got you.

-Phoenix
Got you, Ms. Hart!
Finally!

-Lotta
Wh-what!?
You got what?

-Phoenix
Look at this photograph.

-Lotta
The photo I took...?

-Phoenix
The very same.

-Phoenix
There's something I want
you to see in this photo...
it's quite clearly visible.

-Phoenix
The fog, Ms. Hart.

-Lotta
So... so?

-Phoenix
This picture was taken
with professional, high
quality film, correct?

-Phoenix
Yet even it could not
capture the faces of
the men on the boat!

-Phoenix
Yet you claim you
saw Mr. Edgeworth!

-Phoenix
How!?

-Lotta
Whut!? Wha--!

-Judge
Mr. Wright has a point!

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
That's why I told her
not to say that in her
testimony! Please!

-Phoenix
Yet, now she has said
it, Mr. von Karma.

-Phoenix
How could you possibly
see Mr. Edgeworth!?
Explain yourself!

-Judge
Ms. Hart.

-Lotta
What!

-Judge
Could you see the
defendant that night?

-Lotta
O-of course! I said I could
and I meant I could!

-Judge
Then, please testify
as to the circumstances
of your sighting.

-Phoenix
(I did it!)

-Phoenix
(I finally found a hole in
von Karma's carefully
vague testimony!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- How Edgeworth Was Seen --

(1)
-Lotta
Yer right. It was a cold
night, and the fog was
thick as grits.

(2)
-Lotta
So, once I was finished
setting up my camera, I
got back in the car.

(3)
-Lotta
Still, I brought my
binoculars with me.

(4)
-Lotta
When I heard that noise out
on the lake, I looked with
my binoculars.

-Lotta
See? No problem!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm... You used binoculars?

-Judge
Very well.
You may begin your cross-
examination, Mr. Wright.

-Phoenix
(This one'd better be good!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- How Edgeworth Was Seen --

(1)
-Lotta
Yer right. It was a cold
night, and the fog was
thick as grits.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So? How could you
   see Edgeworth!?

   -Lotta
   Now, just hold your
   horses for a second!

   -Lotta
   You hasty Yankee types'd
   never find a gal where
   I'm from.

   -Judge
   Defense attorneys have trouble
   with that as it is.

   -Phoenix
   (Nobody loves me...)

-Lotta
So, once I was finished
setting up my camera, I
got back in the car.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Your "camera"...?

   -Lotta
   Yeah.
   It's got an automatic...

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   The issue we are concerned
   with here is Ms. Hart seeing
   Mr. Edgeworth!

   -Karma
   The camera has nothing
   to do with this at all!

   -Judge
   Objection sustained.

   -Phoenix
   (Argh! He's not letting
   her answer any of my
   questions!)

(3a)
-Lotta
Still, I brought my
binoculars with me.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "Binoculars"?

   -Lotta
   Yeah, binoculars.

   -Phoenix
   Yesterday, you mentioned
   that you were out looking
   for shooting stars, correct?

   -Lotta
   Well... yeah.

   -Phoenix
   Wouldn't you need a telescope,
   not binoculars, for that?

   -Lotta
   ...!

   -Phoenix
   I've got doubts about your
   camera, too!

   -Phoenix
   Was that really to take
   pictures of meteor showers?

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   The camera is irrelevant
   to this case!

   -Phoenix
   You can't say that
   for certain!

   -Judge
   Hmm... Mr. Wright.

   -Judge
   Is the camera really
   relevant to this case?

   -Judge
   If you believe it is,
   you may continue with
   this line of questioning.

   -Karma
   But know this!

   -Karma
   If you find nothing with
   this, there will be
   consequences!

   -Judge
   Well, Mr. Wright?

   -Judge
   Do you wish to press
   further about the camera?

   Ms. Hart.

   -Phoenix
   What made you choose that
   lake to photograph meteors?

   on that lake. It's not very
   suited to stargazing.

When I heard that noise out
on the lake, I looked with

   Er...

   -Lotta
   I did... yeah.

-Lotta
S-says who!?

set up yesterday.

You have to point a camera
upwards to take photos of

Ooof!

-Phoenix
This this photograph here,
taken when a gun fired on
the lake.

-Lotta
...

-Phoenix
And here, this article
about "Gourdy."

-Phoenix
According to this article...

-Phoenix
Gourdy made a loud noise
when it emerged!

-Phoenix
Well?

-Phoenix
You were trying to
photograph Gourdy,
weren't you!

-Phoenx
That's why you had set
your camera to respond
to loud noises!

Order! Order!

I see...

I, too, thought it
was a little strange.

(Yeah, sure!)

Well, Ms. Hart?

You were camping there to
try and take a photo of
Gourdy, weren't you?

-Lotta

-Lotta
Yeah.

-Lotta
Not bad. Are all you
lawyers that smart?

-Lotta
So, smart boy, I was down
there trying to photograph
Gourdy, you got me.

-Lotta
So what?

-Phoenix
Huh...?

-Lotta
That don't change
what I saw, does it?

-Karma
Exactly!

What you just used several
precious minutes of our time

is nothing more than that the
witness is an idiot who thinks
monsters exist!

-Lotta
H-hey!

But, as she so succinctly
said, so what!?

-Karma
It changes nothing!

-Phoenix
(Not true!)

(You were hiding the whole
thing about Gourdy for
some reason, I know it!)

-Phoenix
(But what could it have
been...?)

-Phoenix
(Whatever it is, I'm getting
to the bottom of this!)

-Lotta
Ms. Hart.

-Judge
Why did you hide the fact
that you were searching for
Gourdy from the court?

-Judge
Please revise your testimony.

-Lotta
...

-Lotta
Right. Fine, I'll testify.
It won't change nothing,
though.

(Something will change...
it has to!)

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Lotta's New Testimony --

(1)
-Lotta
Actually, I'm not a research
student at a university.

(2)
-Lotta
I'm an investigative
photographer.

(3)
-Lotta
Imagine what a scoop it'd be
if I got a picture of that
monster!

(4)
-Lotta
That's why I was camping out
by the lake.

(5)
-Lotta
But, that's all I was
hiding.

(6)
-Lotta
When I heard the "bang"
I looked right straight
out at that lake.

(7)
-Lotta
There wasn't much else to
look at, so I just watched
that boat the whole time.

(8)
-Lotta
Then I saw a flash, near one
of the men's hands, and I
heard another gunshot.

-Lotta
I was looking right at that
boat, the whole time, cross
my heart and hope to fry.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...
Well, Mr. Wright. You may
cross-examine the witness.

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
The witness's testimony
is unchanged from before!

-Kamra
Whether she is a research
student or a photographer
has no bearing on this case!

-Karma
There is no need to waste more
of our time with another
pointless cross-examination!

-Judge
Er... hmm.

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
I claim the defense's right
to cross-examine the witness,
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
(von Karma's up to something,
I know it!)

-Phoenix
(He doesn't want me to cross-
examine her because... why?
Was there a contradiction?)

-Judge
Very well.
You may begin the
cross-examination.

-Judge
You seem sure of yourself,
you must have something in
mind.

-Karma
Hah! That would be a first!

-Phoenix
(Hah hah, very funny.)

-Judge
You understand that this
is your last chance at a
cross-examination, Mr. Wright?

-Judge
If there is no problem with
the testimony this time, we
will let the witness leave.

-Judge
I will announce my verdict
at that time, Mr. Wright.

-Judge
Understood?

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Lotta's New Testimony --

(1)
-Lotta
Actually, I'm not a research
student at a university.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Then what manner of person
   are you!?

   -Lotta
   I'm not sure I'm high-
   falutin' enough to be
   called a "manner" of anything.

(2)
-Lotta
I'm an investigative
photographer.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   An "investigative
   photographer"?

   -Lotta
   Yep.

   -Lotta
   You get your photo, and sell
   it to the press. It's that
   kind of business.

   -Lotta
   Hey, I was taking pictures
   at my sister's graduation
   last year...

   -Lotta
   N' guess what!

   -Phoenix
   Umm... what?

   -Lotta
   There was a yoofoh just
   a' hanging in the sky!

   -Phoenix
   A "yoofoh"...?

   -Lotta
   You know, an "Unidentified
   Flying Object"? A yoofoh!

   -Lotta
   That's when I had sort
   of a revelation.

   -Lotta
   I knew I should become
   an investigative photographer!

   -Phoenix
   I... I see.

   -Phoenix
   (Kind of a shaky basis
   for a career...)

(3)
-Lotta
Imagine what a scoop it'd be
if I got a picture of that
monster!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Is "Gourdy" really all
   that newsworthy?

   -Lotta
   Heck yeah! They even
   had him up on the TV!

   -Phoenix
   (I'm not sure that appearing
   on the local news "rumor of
   the month" show qualifies.)

   -Phoenix
   (Last month's show was
   "Bigfoot Sighted on Acorn
   Hill," I believe.)

   -Lotta
   Hey! They also had a picture
   of him in the newspaper!
   For real!

   -Judge
   Mr. Wright.

   -Judge
   This is one fight I do
   not believe you can win.

   -Judge
   Let's keep moving, shall we?

   -Phoenix
   Yes, Your Honor.

(4)
-Lotta
That's why I was camping out
by the lake.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   That's why you put the
   automatic sensor on
   your camera?

   -Lotta
   Yep. Borrowed it from a
   friend at a university.

   -Lotta
   It analyzes every sound it
   picks up, and when it gets
   a "bang!"...

   -Phoenix
   It snaps a shot.

   -Lotta
   Yep.

   -Phoenix
   So, how many pictures
   has it taken so far?

   -Lotta
   The only time the camera
   triggered was that night.

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm...)

(5)
-Lotta
But, that's all I was
hiding.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   I think it's time you told us
   why you felt you had to hide
   your true purpose at the lake.

   -Lotta
   Heck, if word got out what
   I was up to, the lake'd be
   swarmin' with competitors!

   -Phoenix
   Competitors...?

   -Lotta
   Yeah! Second-rate shutterbugs
   trying to steal my scoop!

   -Phoenix
   Ah...

   -Phoenix
   Is that the only reason you
   were hiding the truth?

   -Lotta
   W-well, actually...

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   Mr. Wright! I'll not have you
   asking questions with no
   relevance to this case!!!

   -Phoenix
   (Whatever you say, von Karma.
   I know you told her to keep
   quiet.)

(6)
-Lotta
When I heard the "bang"
I looked right straight
out at that lake.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Exactly what sort of
   sound was it?

   -Lotta
   Well, I never heard one before
   so I can't say for sure... but
   it sounded like a gunshot.

   -Lotta
   It was a lot sharper a sound
   than I would have expected.

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm...)

(7)
-Lotta
There wasn't much else to
look at, so I just watched
that boat the whole time.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   There wasn't "much else
   to look at"?

   -Lotta
   Yep.

   -Phoenix
   (I dunno. If she heard a
   bang... and she thought
   Gourdy was out there...)

   -Phoenix
   (I kind of doubt she'd waste
   any time looking at a boat.)

   -Lotta
   What? What did I do now?
   What're you giving me that
   look for?

   -Phoenix
   (Definitely suspicious...
   Maybe it's time for some
   evidence...)

   -Karma
   Witness! Continue.

   -Lotta
   Hold your hushpuppies,
   pops, I'm getting there.

(8)
-Lotta
Then I saw a flash, near one
of the men's hands, and I
heard another gunshot.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Was there nothing on the lake
   but the boat at that time?

   -Lotta
   Huh? Wait, so you're thinking
   maybe he was shot from some
   other place?

   -Lotta
   I don't think so, nope.

   -Lotta
   The lake was smooth as glass,
   and nobody was on the shore,
   neither.

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm...)

-Phoenix
(I'd better find some sort
of contradiction in this
testimony...)

-Phoenix
(I won't be able to beat
von Karma any other way...)

-Phoenix
(There has to be something!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Ms. Hart!

-Phoenix
Were you REALLY looking
at that boat!?

-Lotta
W-what's with you!?
Course I was looking at it!

-Lotta
It was the only thing out
there! Any normal person'd
be looking at it!

-Phoenix
I agree, any normal person
would.

-Phoenix
But you are far from normal!

-Lotta
Wh-what!? Y'all wanna step
over here and say that!?

-Phoenix
You were camping at the lake
to take a picture of Gourdy!

-Phoenix
Think about it--

-Phoenix
What would you do if you
heard a loud noise?

-Phoenix
You'd be scanning the lake
for any sign of Gourdy,
that's what!

-Phoenix
You wouldn't give the
boat a second thought!

-Lotta
Aah!

-Judge
Order! Continue, Mr. Wright!

-Phoenix
You testified that you were
watching the boat through
binoculars!

-Phoenix
However, you wouldn't need
binoculars to watch that boat!

-Phoenix
You needed them to search for
Gourdy... and that's what you
were doing!

-Lotta
...!

-Lotta
...

-Lotta
...

-Phoenix
Well!?

-Lotta
Hmph...

-Lotta
Well, now that y'all mention
it...

-Lotta
I did sort of take my
binoculars and kind of
scan the lake a bit...

-Lotta
I mean, Gourdy might be
out there, n' all...

-Judge
M-Ms. Hart!

-Judge
A-are you saying that
you were NOT watching
the boat, then?

-Lotta
...

-Lotta
S-sorry, y'all.

-Lotta
I wasn't fibbing, really.


-Lotta
I was, just... I thought
y'know, I could be witness
to a murder n' all!

-Lotta
I kinda got excited.

-Lotta
I was sure I was watching
that boat... till now.

-Judge
...

-Judge
This... this is totally
uncalled for--

-Lotta
B-but hey!

-Lotta
You got the photograph!
You got proof!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Still, we can't see who
is shooting who in this.

-Lotta
Right! Right!

-Lotta
That's why I took
this photo n'...

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
Witness... That's enough.

-Karma
You've had a long day.
Shut your pie-hole.

-Lotta
Sh-shut my what!?

-Phoenix
(What was she going to say?)

-Phoenix
(She took the photo... and
what?)

-Phoenix
(Wait a second...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Gumshoe
She even had a photograph
to prove it.

-Phoenix
But you really can't tell
from the photo who is
shooting.

-Gumshoe
That's why she said she's
going to enlarge the photo.

-Gumshoe
She said "it'll drop the
quality a mite, but should
let us see who's who!"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
(She enlarged that photo!)

-Phoenix
(Why won't von Karma
let her show it?)

-Phoenix
(I've got a hunch!)

-Phoenix
(I bet that enlarged photo
shows something bad for
von Karma!)

-Phoenix
(This is my chance!)

-Phoenix
(If I'm wrong, though, it'll
mean prison for Edgeworth...
or worse.)

-Phoenix
(What should I do!?)

-Phoenix
Ms. Hart!
Look at this photograph.

-Phoenix
You enlarged this photograph,
did you not?

-Lotta
Y-yeah! I did!

-Phoenix
Why has that enlargement not
been presented to the court!?

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
B-because it does not
exist!

-Lotta
What're y'all talking about!?

-Lotta
You were the one who told
me not to show it in court
in the first place!

-Lotta
You old fool!

-Judge
What's the meaning of this,
Mr. von Karma!

-Karma
Er... erm...

-Phoenix
Ms. Hart!

-Phoenix
Show the photo to the court!
Show us the enlargement!

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
The prosecution objects
to the submission of this
evidence!

-Judge
Objection... denied.

-Judge
The witness will show the
enlargement to the court.

-Lotta
Here it is.

-Judge
Hmm. We still cannot see
who is firing in this.

-Judge
It could be the defendant...
or maybe it's not.

-Judge
Regardless, I'll accept this
as evidence.

Lake Photo added to
the Court Record.

-Karma
Happy now, Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Hmm...
(There has to be something!)

-Karma
You asked for the enlargement,
you got the enlargement.

-Karma
And little good it has done
any of us!

-Karma
That's why I requested she
not show it!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
I suppose this means that
the cross-examination...

-Karma
Is over! Obviously!

-Judge
Then, I would like to close
the cross-examination of
Ms. Lotta Hart.

-Karma
And none too soon. That was
a flagrant waste of my time.

-Judge
Mr. von Karma, do you
have anything to add?

-Karma
I stated everything I needed
to when this trial began.

-Karma
Decisive evidence.

-Karma
A decisive witness.

-Karma
What else could possibly
be required?

-Judge
Nothing, of course.

-Judge
Then, I believe it is time
for me to declare my verdict.

-Phoenix
(Wait... it's not supposed
to go like this!)

-Phoenix
(There has to be a clue
in this photo... somewhere!)

(This is bad! Real bad!
What should I do!?)

There is something decidedly

You will show the court

this photo is "strange"?

-Judge
I'm not sure I understand.
What about the shooter is
strange?

-Phoenix
Look at the hand holding
the pistol, Your Honor!

-Judge
The hand...?

-Phoenix
That hand directly contradicts
another piece of evidence!

-Judge
This man's left hand does
what...!?

-Phoenix
Let me show you.

I'll show you the evidence

********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
The evidence is clear.

-Phoenix
The man in this photograph
is holding that pistol in
his left hand.

-Phoenix
However!

-Phoenix
The prints on the murder
weapon were from Edgeworth's
"right hand"!

-Phoenix
Ergo!

-Phoenix
The man shooting the pistol
in this photograph...

-Phoenix
Is not Mr. Edgeworth!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Now that everyone in the
courtroom has quieted down...

-Judge
I would like to reconvene
this court of law!

-Judge
Mr. Wright.

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-Judge
You have given us definitive
proof today.

-Judge
We now know that it was not
Mr. Edgeworth who fired the
pistol that night.

-Judge
However...

-Judge
This leaves us with a rather
large problem.

-Judge
If Mr. Edgeworth didn't do
it, then who shot our victim?

-Karma
Precisely!

-Karma
As we have seen, there were
no other people on the lake
that night!

-Karma
Who but the defendant
could have shot the victim!?

***Ms. Hart*********************************

********************************************

-Phoenix
There is only one explanation
remaining!

-Phoenix
The man who shot the victim
was none other than... the
victim himself!!!

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Judge
So... you are saying that the
victim committed suicide?

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor. I can think
of no other explanation.

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Indeed, that does seem to be
the only remaining option.

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
I'm so very, very sorry,
Mr. Wright.

-Karma
But suicide is out
of the question.

-Phoenix
Wh-what!?

-Karma
An examination of the victim's
wound reveals the distance
at which he was shot.

-Phoenix
The... distance?

-Karma
The victim was clearly shot
from further than a meter
away!

-Phoenix
A meter! Th-that's three feet!

-Karma
There is no way it could
have been suicide!

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Judge
Mr. von Karma! Are you sure
of the accuracy of your data!?

-Karma
Of course! I had already
considered the possibility
of suicide, you see.

Autopsy Report updated
in the Court Record.

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
I see.

-Judge
Very well, allow me to
state my opinion.

-Judge
Considering the situation,
the shooter had to be the
defendant, Mr. Edgeworth.

-Judge
However!

-Judge
The prints on the gun reveal
that the shooter was not
Mr. Edgeworth.

-Judge
This is a conundrum.

-Judge
Therefore, I would like to
suspend proceedings for this
trial for the day.

-Judge
The court orders the defense
and the prosecution to further
investigate this matter.

-Judge
Understood?

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor.

-Karma
...

-Judge
That is all.
The court is adjourned.

December 26, 1:15 PM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 2

-Phoenix
Whew, that was a close one.

-Edgeworth
...

-Phoenix
Hey!

-Phoenix
Don't you have anything
to say!?

-Edgeworth
No. I have yet to be declared
innocent, Wright.

-Phoenix
Well, yeah, but...

-Phoenix
What happened out there
on that lake, anyway!?

-Phoenix
If he didn't commit
suicide, then who...?

-Phoenix
The shooter was about
a meter away, too!

-Edgeworth
...
W-what?
Don't give me that look!

-Edgeworth
I did not kill him!

-Phoenix
I was just kidding around.

-Edgeworth
Hmph.

-Phoenix
Look...

-Phoenix
I'm going to go
check on Maya.

-Edgeworth
Oh...

-Edgeworth
Wright.

-Phoenix
What?

-Edgeworth
Tell her something for me.

-Phoenix
What?

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Tell...

-Edgeworth
Tell her to watch what
she says in court.

-Edgeworth
That's all.

-Phoenix
(Yeah, I'm sure she'll be
happy to hear you say that,
Edgeworth. Jerk!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
I requisitioned a transcript
of Lotta's entire testimony.

-Phoenix
I thought it might give me
some ammunition for the trial
tomorrow.

-Phoenix
Of course she didn't see
the shooter...

-Phoenix
So the only part of her
testimony that stood was
the "bang" she heard.

Lotta's Deposition added
to the Court Record.

Hey! Nick, it's you!

Hey.

Why'd you do that, anyway?

* You can pay for me, okay?

* Huh? How much?

Huh? Oh, really?

He's a live wire that one.

Well, I was going to say

* Oh, right... I wanted to

* -Gumshoe
* What's up?
*
* -Phoenix
* Is he afraid of earthquakes?
* I never heard anything about
* that before.
*
* -Gumshoe
* ...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Mr. Edgeworth doesn't talk
* about himself too much, see.
*
* -Gumshoe
* But there's one thing that's
* clear as day...
*
* -Gumshoe
* Him hating crime the way
* he does...
*
* -Gumshoe
* And him becoming a lawyer...
*
* -Gumshoe
* And him being scared of
* earthquakes...
*
* -Gumshoe
* It all started with that
* incident.
*
* -Phoenix
* The DL-6 Incident?
*
* -Gumshoe
* Yep, that's the one.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Fifteen years ago... when
* he saw his father shot
* before his very eyes!
*
* -Gumshoe
* He still feels the pain now,
* you can see it in his eyes.

***Talk about "Maya Fey"********************

* -Gumshoe
* Huh? She's not out on bail
* yet?
*
* -Gumshoe
* That's strange.
*
* -Gumshoe
* I told 'em to let her go
* as soon as they had their
* report written up.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Man...
*
* -Gumshoe
* I don't know what would have
* happened in that courtroom
* today if it weren't for her.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Seeing her getting dragged
* out by the bailiff...
*
* -Gumshoe
* I'll be honest with you, pal.
* I shed a tear or two.
*
* -Gumshoe
* Edgeworth, he was so moved
* I saw his lip trembling.

* -Phoenix
* Really!?
* (Cold-as-ice Edgeworth!?)
*
* -Gumshoe

Thank you.

-Gumshoe
Don't worry about that.

-Gumshoe
Mr. Edgeworth is posting
the whole amount.

-Phoenix
What? Edgeworth...?

-Gumshoe
Didn't I tell you?

-Gumshoe
He's grateful to her
for what she did.

-Gumshoe
Alright, pal. Well don't
forget to go pick her
up, okay?

-Phoenix
(Hmm...)

to pay this month's rent,
too...)

Y'all really did it

Wh-what did we do now?

Naw, I'm not complaining!

-Maya
Mmm.

-Maya
Okay, Nick, this looks
like a good spot!

-Phoenix
A good spot... for what?

-Maya
Time to do some fishing!

-Phoenix
(She's serious...)

-Phoenix
Umm...
What are you going
to use for bait?

-Maya
Oh...

-Phoenix
Yeah. "Oh."

-Maya
Mmm...

-Phoenix
I figured something like
this would happen.

-Phoenix
We should have brought
Missile along with us, too.
At least then we'd have bait.

-Maya
...!!!

-Maya
N-Nick...! How could you!

-Phoenix
I'm kidding! I'm kidding!

-Maya
Hmph! Some jokes are
better left untold.

-Phoenix
(Oof! She hit me!)

-Maya
Okay...
Watch this, Nick!

-Phoenix
Just try not to reel in
any empty cans or boots,
okay?

-Maya
Here we go!

-Maya
Ack! M-my leg!

Sorry, Lotta...

***Present Missile**************************
*
* -Maya
* Hey, Lotta!
*
* -Lotta
* Oh, cute!
* He yours?
*
* -Maya
* He's a K-9 police dog!
* His name's "Missile."
*
* -Lotta
* Huh.
*
* -Lotta
* K-9s are the ones they use
* to sniff for things, right?
*
* -Lotta
* I wonder what Gourdy
* smells like...
*
* -Maya
* Hmm...
*
* -Maya
* I hadn't thought about that.
*
********************************************

***Present Fishing Pole*********************
*
* -Maya
* Lotta, wait...
* For catching Gourdy...
*
* -Lotta
* A fishing pole!?
* Are you out of your
* doggone mind!?
*
* -Maya
* Yes! I mean... yes,
* it's a fishing pole!
*
* -Lotta
* Huh.
*
* -Lotta
* I never thought of that!
* Good luck!
*
* -Maya
* Thanks!

***Present Metal Detector*******************
*
* -Maya
* Hey, Lotta, look at this:
* It's a metal detector!
*
* -Lotta
* I know what it is.
*
* -Lotta
* Umm...
*
* -Lotta
* I'm not sure that's going
* to pick up Gourdy, though.
*
* -Lotta
* Unless he's been eating

*
* -Maya
* Oh...

*beep* *beep* *beep*

-Maya
N-Nick!

-Maya
It's beeping! The metal
detector's found something!

-Phoenix
Sure is loud enough about it.

-Phoenix
(Whatever it is, it must
be in those bushes...)

-Phoenix
Go check it out, Maya.

-Maya
Why do I have to check it out?

-Maya
...

-Maya
Nick.

-Maya
Look!

-Phoenix
Huh...?
An air tank?

-Phoenix
Huh. The valve looks broken.

-Maya
I thought it was Gourdy...

-Phoenix
Maya, first of all...

-Phoenix
Why would Gourdy be
in the bushes!?

-Phoenix
And second of all, why would
a metal detector react
to a sea monster!?

-Maya
Oh.

-Phoenix
Huh?

-Phoenix
(There's something wrapped
around this air tank...)

-Phoenix
(It looks like... a string
of flags...?

-Maya
Well, we might as well
take it with us now that
we've found it.

-Phoenix
(It's heavy...)

Picked up air tank
of dubious value.

Now that you mention it,

Ah, that's right...
Let's come back later.

* *
* * -Phoenix
* * (There's something about the

* * Say... is this air tank

* * -Butz
* * Wh-why would I have
* * a thing like that?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * Look--see how there's a
* * string of flags around
* * the tank valve?
* *
* * -Phoenix
* * It's just like the string
* * of flags around your Steel
* * Samurai there.
* *
* * -Butz
* * ...!
* *
* * -Butz
* * M-must be a coincidence!
* *
* * -Butz
* * There're strings of flags

* *
* * -Butz
* * L-like elementary schools!

* *
* * -Butz
* * L-look, why would I need

* * * ...
* * *
* * * -Butz
* * * N-now why would you go asking

* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * (Looks like I hit the

* * *
* * * -Butz
* * * ...
* * *
* * * -Butz
* * * Right... right...
* * *
* * * -Butz
* * * Actually, umm...
* * *
* * * -Butz
* * * See, the compressor I always
* * * use was on the fritz.
* * *
* * * -Butz
* * * So I tried using the tank
* * * to inflate it, just once.
* * *
* * * -Butz
* * * And, er, it didn't go so well.
* * *
* * * -Phoenix
* * * (As I suspected!)
* * *
* * * ***Put the tank away************************
* * * *
* * * * -Phoenix
* * * * (I guess I've gotten to

* * * * Heh. Sorry!
* * * *
* * * ********************************************

* * * *

* * * * It "didn't go so well"?
* * * *
* * * * -Butz
* * * * Er, yeah.
* * * *
* * * * -Phoenix
* * * * Do you think you could be
* * * * a little more specific?
* * * *
* * * * -Butz
* * * * C-c'mon...
* * * *
* * * * -Butz
* * * * Look, it's embarrassing
* * * * so I really don't want to

* * * *
* * * * -Maya

* * * *
* * * * -Butz
* * * * ...

* * * * -Butz
* * * * Fine.
* * * *
* * * * -Butz
* * * * Whatever. It's like what
* * * * I said, the compressor was
* * * * busted.
* * * *
* * * * -Butz
* * * * So I took the tank and tried
* * * * to fill the Samurai up with
* * * * that.
* * * *
* * * * -Butz
* * * * And then...
* * * *
* * * * BLAAAAM!
* * * *
* * * * -Butz
* * * * The valve busted open and
* * * * made this incredible noise!
* * * *
* * * * -Butz
* * * * And that tank there took off
* * * * like a rocket.
* * * *
* * * * -Butz
* * * * And it took my poor deflated
* * * * Steel Samurai with it!
* * * *
* * * * -Maya
* * * * What!? Off into Gourd Lake?
* * * *

* * * Well, Larry?
* * * She's right.
* * *
* * * -Butz
* * * Bah!
* * *

***Present Air Tank again*******************
*
* -Butz
* See, I tried to use this
* tank to fill up the Samurai.
*
* -Butz
* I was attaching the tank,
* when it happened!
*
* BLAAAAM!
*
* -Butz
* The valve just busted open
* and the whole thing took off!
*
* -Butz
* The tank shot up in the air
* like a rocket...
*
* -Butz
* And it took my poor deflated
* Steel Samurai with it!
*
* -Butz
* Man, what a sight that was.
*
* -Maya
* I wish I could have seen it!
*
* -Phoenix
* Me too.

***Talk about "The flying air tank"*********
*
* -Maya
* Umm...
*
* -Maya
* So, the tank and the Steel
* Samurai you were trying to
* fill up flew away...
*
* -Maya
* What happened next?
*
* -Butz
* Well, all that happened
* on the 20th or so.
*
* -Phoenix
* (The 20th... a week ago.)
*
* -Butz
* Now, as far as I could see,
* the tank went flying out
* into the lake.
*
* -Butz
* So I went out every night
* in a boat looking for it.
*
* -Butz
* I mean, Kiyance gave me that
* Steel Samurai after all!
*
* -Maya
* And when did you find it?
*
* -Butz
* Just the night before last!
*
* -Butz
* It flew way out there!
* Took me four whole days
* to find it.
*
* -Phoenix
* (The night before last...
* was the night of the murder!)
*
* -Butz
* Sorry for not telling you,
* Nick.
*
* -Butz
* Actually, I was here on the
* night of the murder.
*
* -Butz
* But, you see, I went home
* before midnight.
*
* -Maya
* So you didn't know about
* what happened?
*
* -Butz
* No...
*
* -Maya
* That's too bad...
*
* -Phoenix
* It's not all bad.
*
* -Phoenix
* We've solved one mystery

N-Nick? What's the

Um, based on the available
evidence, I'd say it's the
name of his pasta shop.

-Uncle
That's a relief, isn't
it, Polly?

-Parrot
"Hello! Hello!"

-Uncle
Ayup...

* see what's inside.
* 
* -Maya
* Nick... it's locked.
*
* -Phoenix
* They must keep important
* case files in there.
*
********************************************

***Present anything*************************
*
* -Maya
* Let's just hurry up
* and read these files!
*
* -Maya
* This place is so dusty,
* I want to finish up and
* get out of here...
*
********************************************

***Talk about "The case summary"************
*
* -Phoenix
* Well, first I have to get
* a handle on the main facts...
* like a summary.
*
* -Maya
* Right.
*
* -Maya
* Summary... summary...
* Found it!
*
* -Maya
* Here you go.
*
* -Phoenix
* December 28... 2001.
*
* -Maya
* That's exactly 15 years
* ago from the day after
* tomorrow!
*
* -Phoenix
* (So in two days, the case
* is closed...)
*
* -Phoenix
* The incident took place in
* the elevator of the district
* court.
*
* -Maya
* What!?
*
* -Maya
* Is this the same district
* court where we're holding
* the trial now!?
*
* -Phoenix
* Looks like it.
*
* -Phoenix
* There was a large earthquake
* at 2:00 PM on that day.
*
* -Phoenix
* Part of the court building
* collapsed, and all of the
* lights went out.
*
* -Maya
* Wow... that was some
* earthquake!
*
* -Phoenix
* At the time, three people
* were trapped in the elevator.
*
* -Phoenix
* It took five hours
* for them to be rescued...
*
* -Phoenix
* Five hours!
*
* -Maya
* That would be scary like
* that, in the dark!
*
* -Phoenix
* There was a lack of oxygen
* in the elevator, and the
* survivors were unconscious.
*
* -Maya
* The survivors...?
*
* -Phoenix
* One of the three in the
* elevator had been shot...
* in the heart.
*
* -Maya
* That was Mr. Edgeworth's
* father... wasn't it.
*
* -Phoenix
* (He said that his father
* was shot before his very
* eyes...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (So Miles Edgeworth was one
* of the other passengers in
* that elevator.)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Victim data"*****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Do you have data on the
* victim... Edgeworth's father?
*
* -Maya
* Yeah, hold on...
*
* -Maya
* Victim... victim...
* Here! Found it!
*
* -Phoenix
* Gregory Edgeworth, 35,
* defense attorney. If he were
* still alive, he'd be 50.
*
* -Phoenix
* He had lost that day's case
* in court, and got in the
* elevator with his son, Miles.
*
* -Maya
* "Miles"...!
*
* -Phoenix
* Miles Edgeworth, of course.
*
* -Maya
* So he was on the elevator
* with his father!
*
* -Phoenix
* From the angle of the bullet
* and other evidence, it could
* not have been a suicide...
*
* -Phoenix
* The murder weapon, a pistol,
* was found in the elevator.
*
* -Phoenix
* The pistol had been fired
* two times.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Where have I heard
* that before...?)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Huh...! It sounds just
* like this current case!
* What's going on here?)
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Suspect data"****************
*
* -Phoenix
* Got any data on the suspect
* in there?
*
* -Maya
* Hmm... that would be the guy
* that my mom got arrested.
*
* -Maya
* Hold on... this is it.
*
* -Phoenix
* The man arrested as a suspect
* in DL-6 was... Yanni Yogi?
*
* -Phoenix
* He was a clerk in the court,
* apparently.
*
* -Maya
* So he must have been the
* third person in the elevator.
*
* -Maya
* Well, then he had to have
* done it!
*
* -Phoenix
* But... he was found innocent.
* Thanks to his defense lawyer,
* Robert Hammond.
*
* -Maya
* Hammond... the victim
* in our case!
*
* -Phoenix
* Right.
*
* -Phoenix
* The suspect, Mr. Yogi, was
* oxygen deprived... so much
* so he had brain damage.
*
* -Phoenix
* He lost all memory of being
* in the elevator.
*
* -Phoenix
* After he was declared
* innocent, he disappeared.
*
* -Maya
* Hmm... where could Yogi
* have gone to, I wonder?
*
* -Phoenix
* (He may be closer than
* we think...)
*
********************************************

AFTER TALKING ABOUT EVERYTHING

-Phoenix
I guess I know generally
what happened in DL-6 now.

-Phoenix
I still don't know what
sort of impact the whole
thing had on Edgeworth...

-Maya
Nick.

-Maya
Are we going to take the
whole file? There's too
much! We'll never get it out.

-Phoenix
Y-you're right.

-Phoenix
How about we just take
what we think we'll need...

DL-6 Case File added
to the Court Record.

-Phoenix
Right.

-Phoenix
That's probably all we'll
be able to find here.

-Phoenix
Now, all that's left
is the trial tomorrow...

-Phoenix
I wonder how "Dad" will do
testifying in court...

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

December 27, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 3

-Judge
Court is now in session for
the trial of Mr. Miles
Edgeworth.

-Phoenix
The defense is ready,
Your Honor.

-Karma
...

-Karma
...

-Judge
Very well, apparently the
prosecution is also ready.

-Phoenix
(Who is the judge here,
anyway!?)

-Judge
Mr. von Karma, your
opening statement.

-Karma
...

-Karma
...

-Judge
Er... very well, no opening
statements so...

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
Not so fast, Judge!

-Karma
I was taking a meaningful
pause before speaking!

-Judge
R-right, of course.

-Karma
A prediction!

-Karma
Today's trial will end
three minutes from now!

-Judge
Order... order!

-Judge
Mr. von Karma!
What is the meaning of
your statement just now!?

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
Bah! Must you question
everything!

-Karma
It will be over in
three minutes! We have
no time to waste!

-Karma
I'll call my witness now!

-Judge
R-right...

-Karma
I call my witness... my
decisive witness to the stand!

-Phoenix
(It's that mysterious
boat shop owner.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Karma
Witness... state your
profession.

-Uncle
Mmph... zzzz...

-Uncle
...

-Uncle
I, er, am the proprietor
of the restaurant the
"Wet Noodle" at Gourd Lake.

-Karma
...

-Uncle
And I, er, also rent boats.

-Karma
The night of the incident,
you were in the boat rental
shop, correct?

-Uncle
Er... ayup, yup I was.

-Karma
Please testify.

-Phoenix
(Wait a second...)

-Phoenix
(We still haven't heard
who this old guy is!)

***Raise an objection***********************
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Let it slide*****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* (On second thought, I guess
* it doesn't really matter.)
*
* -Maya
* Doesn't matter!? What are
* you thinking, Nick!?
*
* -Maya
* What if that old man had
* something to do with the
* DL-6 Incident?
*
* -Maya
* If we don't find out who
* he is, we won't be able to
* build a case here!
*
* -Phoenix
* (Hmm, she has a point.)
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Wait a minute!

-Phoenix
The witness hasn't stated
his name yet!

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
Because I did not ask him,
Mr. Wright! Bah!

-Karma
I have predicted this trial
will end in three minutes!

-Karma
Stop asking trivial questions
and cooperate!

-Phoenix
(Yeah, right!)

-Judge
The witness will
state his name.

-Uncle
Zzzz...

-Uncle
...

-Uncle
Mmph! Well, er...

-Uncle
I'm not really sure, ayup.

-Judge
What do you mean?

-Uncle
My, er, memory...

-Karma
Your honor...

-Karma
The witness does not remember
anything beyond the last
several years...

-Karma
Ergo, he cannot recall
his own name.

-Judge
Hmmm... he can't recall,
you say?

-Karma
Yes, but the incident in
question took place three
days ago.

-Karma
He can testify.

-Judge
Very well.

-Judge
Let's hear his testimony
then, shall we. Witness?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Night of the Murder --

(1)
-Uncle
It was the night of the 24th,
just after midnight, ayup.

(2)
-Uncle
I was in the restaurant...
where I er... rent boats,
as usual.

(3)
-Uncle
Then I heard a "bang!"
Ayup.

(4)
-Uncle
When I looked out the
window, I saw a boat just
a' floating on the lake.

(5)
-Uncle
Then I heard another "bang."

(6)
-Uncle
Just about then the boat
comes back to shore, and
a man walks by my window.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...Very well. I'd like to
begin the cross-examination...

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
There is nothing to question
in my witness's testimony!

-Karma
Ergo, no need for
cross-examination!

-Karma
Besides, there are only
10 seconds left before
our three minutes are up!

-Karma
Judge! Your verdict, now!

-Judge
Er... yes...

-Judge
M-Mr. Wright...?

***Cross-examine****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* What are you saying!?
* Of course I'll cross-
* examine the witness!
*
* -Judge
* Hmm...
* Very well, you may begin.
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Don't cross-examine**********************
*
* -Phoenix
* (He's right. That testimony
* sounded pretty solid.)
*
* -Phoenix
* (Maybe I should hold back.)
*
* -Maya
* B-but, Nick! You have to
* cross-examine him!
*
* -Maya
* This is your only chance to
* turn this trial around!
* Your last chance!
*
* -Phoenix
* (O-oh... right.)
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Karma
Raaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

-Judge
E-excuse me?
Mr. von Karma?

-Karma
Three minutes just passed.

-Judge
I see. Well then, let's
just take our time.

-Judge
You may cross-examine
the witness.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Night of the Murder --

(1)
-Uncle
It was the night of the 24th,
just after midnight, ayup.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "Just after midnight,"
   you say?

   -Uncle
   Ayup, just around then.

   -Phoenix
   Are you sure?

   -Uncle
   Pretty sure, ayup.

   -Phoenix
   When I talked to you
   yesterday, you were
   rather vague about the time...

   -Phoenix
   I'm surprised you seem so
   sure about it today.

   -Uncle
   ...

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   I asked him, and he
   remembered.

   -Karma
   Isn't that right!?

   -Uncle
   Zzzz...

   -Uncle
   D-don't glare
   at me like that...!

   -Uncle
   I, er... I remembered it
   clearly, I did. Ayup.

   -Karma
   You see?
   Continue!

(2)
-Uncle
I was in the restaurant...
where I er... rent boats,
as usual.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Is there anyone who can
   verify that?

   -Uncle
   ...

   -Uncle
   Well, I guess Polly could.

   -Phoenix
   Th-that's not good enough
   for a court of law!

   -Judge
   Mr. Wright... exactly
   what's not good enough?

   -Phoenix
   Ah, uh, Your Honor, this
   "Polly" is a parrot.

   -Judge
   A... parrot?

   -Uncle
   Don't be so hard on
   the girl, Keithy-boy!

   -Judge
   Keith...?

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   The prosecution concedes
   that we cannot prove the
   witness was in the shop.

   -Karma
   Witness... please continue.

(3)
-Uncle
Then I heard a "bang!"
Ayup.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   And where did the "bang"
   seem to come from?

   -Uncle
   From the lake, I figure.

   -Karma
   Are you certain?

   -Uncle
   A-ayup.

   -Karma
   Good. Continue!

(4)
-Uncle
When I looked out the
window, I saw a boat just
a' floating on the lake.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Was there someone in the boat?

   -Uncle
   It was pretty far out
   there... I couldn't see
   clearly...

   -Uncle
   But I figure there was
   two men out there, ayup.

   -Phoenix
   But you couldn't see
   them clearly!

   -Uncle
   Ayup... at the time, that is.

   -Phoenix
   (At the time...?)

(5)
-Uncle
Then I heard another "bang."

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So you heard two gunshots
   total?

   -Uncle
   Ayup.

   -Phoenix
   (That's what Lotta said
   in her testimony yesterday.)

(6)
-Uncle
Just about then the boat
comes back to shore, and
a man walks by my window.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "By your window"?

   -Uncle
   Ayup, by my window.
   Right outside the window
   of my little shack.

   -Phoenix
   And, could you see the
   man's face?

   -Uncle
   Well, the fog was pretty darn
   thick, but he was right there
   in front of me. I saw him.

   -Judge
   This is a rather important
   detail! Please add it to
   your testimony.

   -Uncle
   ...

   -Karma
   Tsk, tsk, tsk...

   -Phoenix
   (I have a bad feeling
   about this...)

   ADD PART 7

(7)
-Uncle
That man was the defendant...
he was saying "I can't believe
he's dead."

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   END CROSS-EXAMINATION

-Phoenix
(If I know von Karma, he spent
time preparing his witness.)

-Phoenix
(I'm not going to find
contradictions very easily
in this testimony.)

-Phoenix
(Whew... it's tough being
a lawyer.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
A-are you sure!?

-Uncle
...

-Phoenix
(Uh oh!)

-Phoenix
D-Dad!

-Uncle
Dead certain, Keith!

-Uncle
He said "I can't believe
he's dead" as he was walking
by, too.

-Karma
Witness! Are you sure that
the person you saw was
Miles Edgeworth!?

-Uncle
It was him!
That Edgeworth boy!

-Judge
...

-Judge
This... sounds like decisive
evidence indeed. I see no
room for doubt.

-Phoenix
(von Karma...)

-Phoenix
(He lured me into cross-
examining so he could set
me up for a fall!)

-Karma
Tsk, tsk, tsk...

-Maya
N-Nick...!
I don't like the way things
are going here!

-Maya
Everyone in the courtroom
is glaring at us!

-Phoenix
(I'd better act quick, or this
trial is going to be over!)

***Raise an objection***********************
*
* -Phoenix
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Phoenix
* Your Honor!
*
* -Phoenix
* We proved in yesterday's court
* that it could not have been
* Edgeworth who fired that gun!
*
* -Karma
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Karma
* Mr. Wright.
*
* -Karma
* Are you referring to the
* fingerprints from Edgeworth's
* right hand found on the gun,
*
* -Karma
* and the photograph showing
* a man firing with his left
* hand...?
*
* -Phoenix
* Exactly!
*
* -Karma
* That is easily explainable!
*
* -Karma
* He could have wped his
* prints after he fired!
*
* -Karma
* You are ignoring the
* truth of the matter here!
*
* -Karma
* Everything in this witness's
* testimony is true!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Wait and see what happens****************
*
* -Phoenix
* (But... how can I raise an
* objection without any proof?)
*
* -Karma
* Judge!
* There is no room for doubt
* in the witness's testimony!
*
* -Karma
* I demand that you declare
* your verdict!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Judge
Hmm...

-Phoenix
(The judge is lost in
thought... what should I do?)

***Raise an objection***********************
*
* -Phoenix
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Phoenix
* Your Honor!
*
* -Phoenix
* This witness claims that
* Edgeworth said "I can't
* believe he's dead"...
*
* -Phoenix
* But his word is all we
* have!
*
* -Phoenix
* If he were telling a lie...
*
* -Karma
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Karma
* Mr. Wright.
*
* -Karma
* In a court of law, the
* evidence tells all.
*
* -Karma
* Apparently, you have yet
* to realize even this
* basic fact.
*
* -Karma
* If you say is testimony
* is a lie, show us proof!
*
* -Phoenix
* Urk...
*
* -Maya
* Nick!
* Do we have evidence...?
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

***Wait and see what happens****************
*
* -Phoenix
* (I can't see any room
* to raise an objection...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (I'd better hold back and
* see how things develop.)
*
* -Maya
* Nick!
* We have to do something!
*
* -Maya
* If we stay quiet now,
* Mr. Edgeworth'll be
* found guilty for sure!
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
It's no good!
There's nothing I can do.

-Maya
A... are you sure?

-Phoenix
To be honest...

-Phoenix
I don't know what
to do anymore.

-Maya
Please...

-Maya
Can you hear me, Sis?
Please...

-Maya
We need your help...
Nick needs you...

-Karma
Tsk tsk tsk...

-Karma
Three minutes was perhaps
too high an expectation.

-Karma
However, fifteen minutes
isn't bad! This must be
a new record.

-Judge
Enough!
The witness may leave
the stand.

-Uncle
Zzzz...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
This court sees no reason to
further prolong the trial.

-Judge
Nor is there any need for
more time to decide the case
against the defendant.

-Judge
This case is extremely clear.
I see no room for mis-
interpretation of the facts.

Phoenix
(W-what!? No!)

-Karma
Hmph.

-Judge
This court finds the
defendant, Mr. Miles
Edgeworth...

* G U I L T Y *

-Judge
The accused will surrender
to the court immediately,

-Judge
to be held pending trial at
a higher court within a
month from today's date.

-Judge
That is all.
The court is adjourned!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

W-w-waaaaaaait!

-Judge
Wh-who was that just now?

Me!!!

-Phoenix
Huh?

-Phoenix
Waaaaah!

-Phoenix
L-Larry!

-Judge
Wh-what are you doing here!?

-Butz
Listen! Y-you gotta
listen to me!

-Butz
I... I was...

-Butz
I was there, in the park,
the night of the murder!

-Butz
I... I wasn't sure about
it until just yesterday.

-Butz
B-but today I remembered it!

-Judge
Remembered what?

-Butz
The gunshot!

-Butz
I heard it too!

-Judge
O-order!

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
What is the meaning of this!?

-Karma
The verdict has been decided!
I call for adjournment!

-Judge
One moment, Mr. von Karma.

-Judge
So, you say you heard
a gunshot?

-Butz
Yeah, I did!
A gunshot! That night!

-Butz
I was sitting here in the
audience, listening to the
testimony...

-Butz
Then I realized, something he
said was different from what
I remember!

-Butz
A-anyhow, I can't just sit
here and let you call
Edgey a murderer!

-Butz
It's...
It's just not right!

-Butz
I'll testify!
Lemme testify!

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Judge
Well, this is the first
time something has happened
like this in my court.

-Judge
I'm not quite sure
how to proceed...

-Karma
Judge!
You've already given
your decision!

-Karma
The trial is over!

-Maya
Nick!

-Maya
This is it!
Larry's given us one
final chance at this!

-Phoenix
(She's right!)

-Phoenix
(If only it wasn't Larry...)

-Phoenix
(He could make things
even worse...)

-Maya
Mr. Edgeworth was just
declared guilty, Nick!

-Maya
It doesn't get any worse!

-Phoenix
You're right!
Okay!

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
If there is another witness,
it is our duty to hear him
speak!

-Phoenix
Right here!
Right now!

-Karma
A waste of time!

-Karma
The verdict cannot be
overturned!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
...

-Judge
...

-Judge
Allow me to speak my
opinion.

-Judge
In all court proceedings, it
is our duty to prevent an
inaccurate verdict.

-Judge
In order to make sure no
mistake has been made, every
witness should be heard!

-Karma
Wh-what is this!?

-Judge
I withdraw my previous
verdict of "guilty"!

-Judge
Mr. von Karma!

-Judge
I order you to call this
new witness to testify.

-Judge
Now!

-Karma
Whaaaat!

-Judge
The court will adjourn
for a five minute recess.

-Judge
After that, we will
hear this new witness.

-Judge
Court is adjourned!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

December 27, 10:28 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 2

-Phoenix
Whew...

-Phoenix
That was too close.

-Phoenix
Sorry to keep you on the
edge of your seat like
that, Edgeworth.

-Edgeworth
Hmph.

-Edgeworth
I've seen worse.

-Phoenix
(Yeah right, Edgeworth.
You're sweating bullets!)

-Phoenix
I just wonder what Larry
plans to say in there.

-Maya
Larry was at the lake
that night?

-Phoenix
Yes...

-Phoenix
He said he went looking
for the Steel Samurai balloon
that flew into the lake.

-Maya
Oh right.

-Maya
And he found the balloon
and the air tank that night?

-Phoenix
Yeah.

-Edgeworth
...

-Phoenix
Hey, Edgeworth.

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Huh?
You say something, Wright?

-Phoenix
Yeah, a lot of things.

-Phoenix
You seem out of it.
What's wrong?

-Edgeworth
It... it's nothing.

-Phoenix
Hmm?

-Maya
Umm... Mr. Edgeworth?
There's something I've
been meaning to ask you.

-Edgeworth
What's that?

-Maya
Why are your fingerprints
on the murder weapon?

-Edgeworth
Oh.

-Edgeworth
When he fell into
the lake, I went into
a daze.

-Edgeworth
I couldn't understand what
had happened. I couldn't
think straight.

-Edgeworth
Then I saw the pistol
lying on the floor of
the boat in front of me.

-Edgeworth
I picked it up without
thinking.

-Edgeworth
I didn't have a reason,
really.

-Maya
I see...

-Edgeworth
Wright...

-Phoenix
Yeah?

-Edgeworth
This might be our chance.

-Phoenix
Our chance?

-Edgeworth
von Karma has only ever
run perfect trials.

-Phoenix
Perfect trials...?

-Edgeworth
Perfectly prepared witnesses,
perfectly complete evidence.

-Edgeworth
That's the secret to
his success.

-Edgeworth
This is the first time
he's ever had to deal with
something unexpected!

-Edgeworth
He has let someone he hasn't
even talked to testify before
the court!

-Edgeworth
And that someone... is Larry!

-Phoenix
What are you getting at?

-Edgeworth
It's likely his testimony
will be full of holes, Wright.

-Maya
That's right, Nick!

-Maya
No ten minute trial this time!
We'll milk this one for all
it's worth!

-Phoenix
Hey, it was fifteen minutes!
Fifteen! (Everything depends
on Larry now...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

December 27, 10:35 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 3

-Judge
Court is now back in session.

-Judge
Witness...

-Judge
Please testify to the
court about everything
that you saw...

-Judge
on the night of December
24th.

-Butz
Right... leave it to me!

-Phoenix
(Please, Larry, don't mess
this one up!!!)

-Pheonix
(I hate to admit it, but
you're our last chance!)

-Karma
...

-Phoenix
(von Karma didn't even have
time to prep his witness.)

-Phoenix
(I just hope Edgeworth is
right about this being
our big break...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Night of the Murder --

(1)
-Butz
That night, I was out
in a boat on the lake.

(2)
-Butz
I was looking for something,
and I, er, found it.

(3)
-Butz
So I quietly slipped the
boat back in at the rental
shop dock.

(4)
-Butz
Then, just as I was thinking
about going home, I heard
this "bang"!

(5)
-Butz
I looked out over the lake,
but I didn't notice the boat.

(6)
-Butz
So after I heard that single
gunshot I went home.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
That was an unusually vague
testimony, even for this
court.

-Judge
In any matter, Mr. Wright,
you may begin your cross-
examination.

-Phoenix
Yes, Your Honor...

-Maya
What's wrong, Nick?

-Phoenix
It's Larry!
I have no idea what he's
going to say if I press him.

-Phoenix
I'm a little scared.

-Maya
Hmm...

-Maya
Well, we've come this far.
There's no way to go but
forward, Nick!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Night of the Murder --

(1)
-Butz
That night, I was out
in a boat on the lake.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   ...

   -Judge
   Something wrong, Mr. Wright?

   -Phoenix
   There were so many things
   wrong I don't know where
   to begin...

   -Judge
   Ah...

   -Phoenix
   Um, well, okay. First of
   all, what time was it?

   -Butz
   Oh, it was after 11:00
   when I went out in the
   boat.

   -Butz
   But that time everyone had gone
   home for the night.

   -Butz
   So I waited until the
   coast was clear, so
   to speak.

   -Phoenix
   And why were you out
   on a boat at such a
   late hour...?

(2)
-Butz
I was looking for something,
and I, er, found it.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   "Looking for something"...?

   -Butz
   Er, yeah.

   -Judge
   Mr. Butz, what was it
   you were looking for?

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   What the witness was
   searching for is irrelevant!

   -Karma
   Most likely he was hunting
   for this "Gourdy"!

   -Phoenix
   (You know, it wouldn't
   surprise me one bit
   if that was the truth.)

   -Karma
   This is all irrelevant!
   Let's get it over with.

(3)
-Butz
So I quietly slipped the
boat back in at the rental
shop dock.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Around what time was that?

   -Butz
   Uh...
   Well, let's see...

   -Butz
   I figure I was out searching
   for about an hour...

   -Butz
   I guess it was around
   12:00. Yeah.

   -Judge
   You're not sure?

   -Butz
   Hey! Don't give me that face!

   -Butz
   I'm not some sort of
   human sundial, okay!?

   -Phoenix
   (People use watches
   these days, Larry...)

(4)
-Butz
Then, just as I was thinking
about going home, I heard
this "bang"!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Where did the sound
   come from?

   -Butz
   Yeah, well, I wasn't
   too sure about that.

   -Butz
   I looked around, y'know.

   -Judge
   Did you look at the lake?

   -Butz
   Yeah, I looked.

(5)
-Butz
I looked out over the lake,
but I didn't notice the boat.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Wasn't there a boat
   on the lake!?

   -Judge
   Order! Order!

   -Judge
   Well? Mr. Butz!

   -Butz
   Whoa, whoa.

   -Butz
   Everybody just calm
   down, okay?

   -Butz
   I mean, it was real
   foggy that night.

   -Butz
   I'm not sure whether
   there was a boat out
   there or not.

   -Phoenix
   (Oh, okay, no problem. That's
   just the MOST IMPORTANT PART
   of this case!!!)

   -Karma
   Hmph!

(6)
-Butz
So after I heard that single
gunshot I went home.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So, you only heard one "bang"
   correct?

   -Butz
   Yeah.

   -Phoenix
   (Huh.)

-Maya
Well, Nick?

-Phoenix
Hmm...

-Phoenix
It was a pretty wishy-washy
testimony, wasn't it?

-Phoenix
I guess I should just start
working on the contradictions.

-Maya
Sorry...

-Maya
I wish I could be more
helpful. I wish I could call
my sister...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
W-wait a sec, Larry!

-Butz
Wh-what!?

-Phoenix
You only heard one
"bang"!? You're sure!?

-Butz
That's what I said!

-Phoenix
But Ms. Lotta Hart testified
yesterday that she heard
two "bang"s!

-Phoenix
And the old man just now
said the same thing!

-Phoenix
They both heard two
gunshots that night!

-Butz
Huh?

-Phoenix
Were you even listening!?

-Phoenix
Were you paying attention at
all to what they said?

-Butz
Yo, Nick, please!

-Phoenix
Huh?

-Butz
You know, something's been
bothering me.

-Butz
I'm a witness, see?
I'm like a customer here!

-Butz
So you got to treat me
nice and stuff, okay!?

-Phoenix
...

-Judge
Mr. Butz.

-Butz
What!?

-Judge
You only heard one gunshot?
Are you sure?

-Butz
...

-Butz
Umm...

-Butz
Well, to tell ya the truth...
I'm not sure.

-Judge
Eh...?

-Phoenix
Not sure!?
H-how could you not be sure?

-Butz
Yeah, well...

-Butz
I, uh, I might have
missed the other gunshot.

-Butz
I was, uh, listening
to something else...

-Phoenix
Something... else?

-Butz
My radio, dude!
On my headphones.

-Phoenix
Whaaaaaaat!?

-Judge
Order! Order!
And stop that booing!

-Judge
M-Mr. Butz!

-Judge
You were listening to
a radio on earphones?

-Butz
Y-yeah! So what!
That a crime!?

-Butz
I listen to my radio!
Everybody listens to the
radio! What's the big deal!?

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Mr. von Karma... your
opinion?

-Karma
Waste of time.

-Karma
I do not accept this witness,
nor his shoddy testimony.

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Well, Mr. Wright?
Should he continue the
testimony?

***That's enough****************************
*
* -Phoenix
* (No, I think I've heard

* -Phoenix
* (In fact, I think we've

* -Maya
* What are you saying, Nick!?
*
* -Maya
* If you stop now, Mr. Edgeworth

*
* -Maya

-Phoenix
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
Please... please allow the
witness to continue his
testimony.

-Karma
Bah!

-Karma
Nothing is more pitiful than
a lawyer who doesn't know
when he's lost!

-Judge
Very well, Mr. Butz.

-Judge
Please give your testimony,
and be sure to include details
like your RADIO.

-Butz
Right! Leave it to me!

-Phoenix
(I wouldn't if there were
any other way out of this,
believe me.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- What Larry Heard --

(1)
-Butz
It's lonely, being alone
on Christmas Eve!

(2)
-Butz
That's why I was listening
to an all-requests show on
the radio, see?

(3)
-Butz
I was listening to it
real booming loud, like.

(4)
-Butz
But I'm sure I heard
that gunshot!

(5)
-Butz
I remember exactly what
the DJ was saying when
I heard it, too.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
You were listening to your
radio... at a high volume!?

-Butz
Yeah, what's the big problem?

-Butz
Can't a man listen to his
radio in peace? Isn't this
a free country!?

-Phoenix
(I truly believe Larry has
no idea what the problem
here is.)

-Karma
Judge.

-Karma
Can you believe a word
this witness says?

-Karma
What he heard was probably
nothing more than a drum
beat from the radio!

-Judge
True enough, it is difficult
to believe this testimony.

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Wait, Your Honor!

-Phoenix
The witness said he remembers
exactly what the DJ said when
he heard the gunshot!

-Judge
Excuse me?
"Dee-jay"...?

-Phoenix
An announcer... the guy who
says things on the radio.

-Phoenix
Anyway!

-Phoenix
What this means is, when he
heard the sound, no music
was playing!

-Phoenix
The DH only talks between
songs! So he could have heard
the gunshot from the lake!

-Phoenix
I'd like to cross-examine
the witness, Your Honor!

-Judge
V-very well, Mr. Wright.

-Phoenix
(I can't believe I'm
continuing this charade...)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- What Larry Heard --

(1)
-Butz
It's lonely, being alone
on Christmas Eve!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   So, you turned on the radio?

   -Butz
   Right!

   -Butz
   I just wanted to hear
   someone's voice, y'know?

   -Butz
   You don't know what it's
   like out there, alone,
   on Christmas Eve! Alone!

   -Phoenix
   (I shouldn't have said
   anything...)

(2)
-Butz
That's why I was listening
to an all-requests show on
the radio, see?

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Do you by any chance remember
   the name of the program you
   were listening to?

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   This has nothing to do with
   the case, Your Honor!

   -Judge
   Objection sustained.

   -Judge
   The witness was listening
   to the radio. That is all
   we need to know.

   -Judge
   Tell us, Mr. Butz, how loud
   was your radio set to that
   night?

(3)
-Butz
I was listening to it
real booming loud, like.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Real "booming" loud?

   -Butz
   Yeah, y'know.

   -Judge
   And you had headphones on?

   -Butz
   Yup.

   -Judge
   I wouldn't think you could
   hear anything going on outside
   at all...

(4)
-Butz
But I'm sure I heard
that gunshot!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Can you prove that...?

   -Phoenix
   No... no, of course you can't.

   -Butz
   Nah, I can't prove it.

   -Butz
   But I remember that moment
   real clear.

   -Butz
   I mean, while I was talking
   about it, it came back real
   clear to me, y'know?

(5)
-Butz
I remember exactly what
the DJ was saying when
I heard it, too.

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   What did he say?

   -Karma
   *OBJECTION!*

   -Karma
   Mr. Wright!

   -Karma
   Please cease these
   pointless questions!

   -Karma
   What possible good could
   knowing what a radio DJ
   said do us!?

   -Judge
   Indeed, Mr. von Karma
   has a point.

   -Judge
   I'll allow the question only
   if you see some reason why
   we should care...?

   ***We don't care****************************
   *

   * -Phoenix

   *
   * -Phoenix
   * Understood, Your Honor.
   * I withdraw my question.
   *

   * -Phoenix

-Butz
Just when she said "Hey!
it's almost Christmas!" I
heard the gunshot!

   -Phoenix
   *HOLD IT!*

   -Phoenix
   Are you sure?

   -Butz
   Course I am!

   -Butz
   She had this real
   sexy voice...

   -Phoenix
   (Hmm... maybe von Karma was
   right. I'm not sure how
   that helped us at all.)

-Phoenix
This is the most ludicrous
testimony I've ever heard.

-Phoenix
(But there is one
gleaming ray of hope
in there!)

-Phoenix
(I've got to press it
until we get to the
bottom of what happened!)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
*OBJECTION!*

-Phoenix
Larry! Are you absolutely
sure what you're saying
is correct!?

-Butz
Huh? What's with the face?
You look scary, dude.

-Butz
Hey, if you're trying
to scare me, you better
know I don't scare that easy!

-Judge
Is something the matter,
Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
Did you hear what the
witness just said?

-Phoenix
The DJ said "Hey! It's almost
Christmas!" when he heard
the gunshot!

-Judge
Indeed...
And...?

-Phoenix
"Almost Christmas" means
it wasn't Christmas!

-Phoenix
Do you realize what this
means?

-Phoenix
When he heard the gunshot,
it was still Christmas Eve!!!

-Judge
That would seem to be
the case, yes...

***If Lake Photo used to object*************

-Phoenix
This is a clear
contradiction, Your Honor!

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Judge
What does this mean?

-Judge
The two prior witnesses
heard gunshots after
midnight.

-Judge
However, this witness says
he heard a gunshot before
midnight...

-Karma
Judge.
The answer is simple.

-Karma
The current witness
is plainly mistaken.

-Karma
Just look at hm!
Suspicious!

-Butz
Wh-whaaat!?

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Well, Mr. Wright?

-Judge
What do you think about
Mr. Butz's claim he heard
the gunshot before midnight?

***Larry's wrong****************************

********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
Look at this photograph!

-Phoenix
This was taken by our witness
yesterday, Ms. Lotta Hart,
with her automatic camera.

-Phoenix
The timestamp on the photo
reads "December 24, 11:50 PM."

-Judge
Oh yeah?

-Judge
Hmm?

-Judge
But, there's nothing on
the lake in this picture.

-Phoenix
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
The real issue here is not
why nothing is shown in this
photograph.

-Phoenix
It is why this photograph
exists at all!

Judge
What do you mean?

-Phoenix
Your Honor...

-Phoenix
This photograph was taken
by an automatic camera.

-Phoenix
That camera was set to go off
in response to loud noises!

-Judge
Ahah!

-Phoenix
Correct!

-Phoenix
There was a loud noise on the
lake at 11:50 PM.

-Phoenix
That is why this photograph
was taken!

-Phoenix
In other words...

-Phoenix
When Larry heard that gunshot,
it was most definitely
Christmas Eve!

-Judge
Indeed, it would seem
that is the case!

-Judge
Then... where does that
leave us?

-Judge
Ms. Hart testified that she
heard the gunshots after
midnight.

-Judge
Are you claiming she
was mistaken?

-Phoenix
Not at all, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
It is a fact that the camera
also triggered at 15 minutes
after midnight!

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
That night, there were two
sets of gunshots, with a
25 minute pause between them!

-Judge
Why would this be...?

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
Don't be fooled, Judge!

-Karma
That camera was set to
respond to "loud noises"!

-Judge
Yes?

-Karma
There is no proof that the
"loud noise" at 11:50 was
a gunshot!

-Karma
Why, the witness could have
sneezed, triggering the
camera!

-Butz
H-hey, my nose was clear
that night, man! Clear!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
Well, Mr. Wright?

-Judge
There's no turning back now.

-Judge
Can you prove that the "loud
noise" at 11:50 PM was indeed
a gunshot?

-Judge
Please show the court evidence
if you have any.

***Present something wrong******************

********************************************

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
This is my evidence.

-Judge
The... murder weapon?

-Phoenix
Something about this pistol
was bothering me, Your Honor.

-Phoenix
Both of the witnesses who
testified yesterday heard
two gunshots.

-Phoenix
However, the murder weapon
was fired three times.

-Phoenix
When, then, was the
last shot fired?

-Phoenix
Only now have I realized
the truth.

-Phoenix
That third shot was the shot
Larry heard just before
midnight!

-Judge
Order! Order!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
That would make sense
of the evidence we've
seen so far.

-Judge
...

-Judge
However...

-Judge
This leaves me wondering
exactly what did happen
that night on the lake.

-Karma
Exactly!

-Karma
If this is true, there
were two sets of gunshots,
separated by 25 minutes!

-Karma
One at 11:50, another
at 15 minutes after
midnight!

-Karma
Why, I ask you! Why!?

-Phoenix
(Uh oh, I'd better think
of something quick!)

-Phoenix
(...)

-Phoenix
(Wait a second...!)

-Phoenix
(Gunshots separated by
25 minutes...?)

-Phoenix
Aaaaaaaaaaah!

-Maya
Wh-what's wrong, Nick!?

-Phoenix
I have it! I have it!

-Maya
Huh?

-Phoenix
Remember the case with
the Steel Samurai!?

-Maya
Huh? Yeah, of course
I remember...

-Phoenix
The murderer in this case
had the same idea as the
murderer in that case!

-Maya
What do you mean?

-Phoenix
Maya!

-Maya
Yes!?

-Phoenix
If we don't figure this
out now, we'll never overturn
Edgeworth's guilty verdict!

-Phoenix
I've got a hunch, and I'm
going to run with it...

-Maya
Right!
I mean... is this safe?

-Phoenix
Safe? We've already gotten
a guilty verdict! We have
nothing to lose!

-Maya
...

-Phoenix
You just watch and let me
know if I say anything
that sounds fishy, okay?

-Maya
Right, Nick!

-Phoenix
Your Honor!

-Judge
Y-yes, Mr. Wright?

-Phoenix
The testimony just now has
cleared up this entire case!

-Judge
What do you mean, Mr. Wright!?

Karma
Tsk tsk tsk...

-Karma
So, you've finally
realized the truth?

-Karma
There can be no other
murderer here than
Miles Edgeworth himself.

-Phoenix
Wrong, von Karma!

-Phoenix
A man was shot that night,
but it wasn't Edgeworth
who did the shooting!

-Karma
Listen, rookie.

-Karma
Take a deep breath, and
consider the facts.

-Karma
At the time of the murder,
one boat was on that lake.

-Karma
This was shown by the
witness's photograph.

-Karma
The defendant, Edgeworth,
and the victim, Robert
Hammond were on that boat.

-Karma
There was a gunshot fired
on that boat, and Robert
Hammond fell into the lake.

-Karma
The distance of the shooting
was one meter. It couldn't
have been suicide!

-Karma
Well?

-Karma
The guilty party has to be
the other man on that boat!

-Judge
I admit, it is hard to imagine
any other possibility.

-Phoenix
Yes...

-Phoenix
But this assumes that the
victim was shot at 15 minutes
after midnight.

-Judge
What do you mean by
that, Mr. Wright?

-Judge
We have photographic evidence
of the time of the shooting.

-The timestamp on the photo
says 00:15.

-Phoenix
But Larry heard a gunshot
25 minutes before that!

-Phoenix
Robert Hammond was killed
then! 25 minutes before the
shot on the lake!

-Phoenix
(That's the only way that
Edgeworth could be innocent!)

-Judge
...

-Karma

-Karma
Mr. Wright.
Are you quite mad?

-Karma
Explain who this is
sitting on the boat!

***The murderer and Hammond*****************

* -Karma

* -Karma
* What are you saying!?
*
* -Karma
* That contradicts what you

*
* -Karma
* You said that Robert Hammond

*
* -Phoenix
* Y-yes, that's right.
*
* -Judge
* Also, might I mention...
*
* -Judge
* The defendant, Mr. Edgeworth,
* has admitted to being on that

*
* -Phoenix
* Er, right, Your Honor.
* (Crash and burn...)
*
* -Judge
* Mr. Wright!

-Phoenix
Of course, it was
Edgeowrth and the
murderer!

-Phoenix
After the murderer killed
Robert Hammond at 11:50...

Phoenix
He assumed the guise of
Mr. Hammond and met Edgeworth!

-Judge
Wh... What!?
Are you serious?

-Phoenix
Yes. Edgeworth won't tell
us why he went to the lake
that night.

-Phoenix
However, I have a hunch.

-Phoenix
That night, Robert Hammond
called Edgeworth to the lake.

-Phoenix
Now, Edgeworth didn't know
Robert Hammond's face that
well.

-Phoenix
That's why he didn't suspect
anything when the murderer
took Robert Hammond's place!

-Judge
...

-Judge
I'm not sure what to
make of all this.

-Karma
L-Ludicrous!

-Judge
Mr. Wright.

-Judge
Tell us the name of
the murderer then!

-Phoenix
The murderer's name...?
Right! It's...

***Miles Edgeworth**************************
*
* -Phoenix

*
* -Phoenix
* (I might get a laugh or two

* Uh, Nick?
* Something on your mind?
*

* Huh? Oh, uh, nothing.

***Lotta Hart*******************************

* The murderer is none other

*
* -Judge

*
* -Judge
* The investigative

*
* -Phoenix
* Um, yes.
*
* -Judge
* You're saying that young lady

*
* -Phoenix
* Y-yes, well, she did look

* I am ashamed I actually

*
* -Karma
* Listen!

* -Karma
* You came to this conclusion

*
* -Karma
* That is, this photograph

*
* -Karma
* If you didn't have this

* Correct?
*

* And just who was it who went

*
* -Phoenix

*
* -Phoenix
* It was... Lotta Hart.

* -Karma
* Why would the murderer go

*
* -Phoenix
* I guess... they wouldn't.

* Mr. Wright. I'm going to

* (Whoops.)
*
* -Judge

-Phoenix
Actually, I don't know
the murderer's name.

-Judge
Y-you don't know!?

-Karma
Bah! Again, you waste my time!

-Phoenix
I don't know because
he never told us!

-Karma
...!

-Phoenix
The murderer is the
caretaker of the boat
shop, that old man!

-Phoenix
At 11:50, he was the one who
killed Robert Hammond.

-Judge
The caretaker of the
boat shop!?

-Judge
Wh-where did he do this!?

-Judge
There weren't any boats
on the lake then!

-Phoenix
Why would he have to go
all the way out on the lake
just to shoot someone?

-Phoenix
May I suggest...
That the real scene of this
crime was not in a boat!

-Judge
What!?

-Judge
W-well then, where did
the murder take place!?

-Phoenix
(Show the judge where the
murder really took place!)

***Present Lotta's campsite*****************

*
* -Phoenix
* Yes.
*
* -Judge
* Why would the caretaker of

* -Phoenix
* It was probably an honest

*
* -Judge
* The caretaker made a mistake?

-Phoenix
*TAKE THAT!*

-Phoenix
Here, of course! The boat
shop, where he lives.

-Phoenix
That way he could meet with
the victim without anyone
seeing!

-Karma
*OBJECTION!*

-Karma
Do you have proof that the
boat shop was the scene of
the crime!?

-Phoenix
Recall Larry's testimony
if you will.

-Phoenix
That night he was out on
the lake in a boat, searching
for something.

-Phoenix
He finds it, and returns
the boat.

-Phoenix
Then, just as he's starting
to head for home, he hears
a gunshot!

-Phoenix
He heard a gunshot,
Your Honor!

-Phoenix
Even though he was wearing
headphones at the time!

-Phoenix
In other words, the gunshot
was very, very close by!

-Phoenix
And where would that be if
he had just returned a boat?

-Judge
The boat shop...!

-Judge
Mr. Wright!

-Judge
What happened that night
on Gourd Lake!?

-Judge
Please tell the court,
from the beginning!

-Phoenix
Y-yes, Your Honor.

-Maya
Nick, are you sure
about this...?

-Phoenix
Um, not really.

-Phoenix
But, I think if I start
at the very beginning...

-Phoenix
And I take it slow, I might
just be able to figure this
out...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Phoenix
That night...

-Phoenix
The caretaker of the boat
shop called Robert Hammond
to his shop.

-Phoenix
This was around 11:50.

-Phoenix
That was when the gunshot
that Larry heard was fired.

-Phoenix
After that, the caretaker
put on Robert Hammond's
coat...

-Phoenix
He became Robert Hammond!

-Phoenix
Then he got in the boat with
Edgeworth, and went out into
the middle of the lake.

-Judge
Then... who fired the pistol
on the boat, Mr. Wright?

***Miles Edgeworth**************************
*
* -Phoenix
* It was Miles Edgeworth...
*
* -Maya
* N-Nick!
* How could that be!?
*
* -Maya
* Wasn't the old man holding
* the pistol!?
*
* -Phoenix
* Uh, yeah.
* Good thinking!
*
* -Maya
* That was easy, Nick!
* What I'm worried about
* is what you're thinking!

********************************************

***The boat shop caretaker******************
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
Of course, it was the
murderer who shot the
pistol.

-Phoenix
He shot twice.
Both missed Edgeworth,
on purpose.

-Judge
Wait a minute...

-Phoenix
Y-yes?

-Judge
Why would he shoot twice
if he didn't mean to hit
anyone?

-Phoenix
Uh...
(Details! Details!)

-Karma
Know this, Mr. Wright.

-Karma
The moment you run out of
explanations is the moment
you lose.

-Karma
Tell us why the murderer
had to fire twice!

***Because the first shot missed************
*
* -Phoenix
* B-because the first shot
* missed?
*
* -Judge
* Missed?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah, he was aiming for
* Edgeworth, and he missed...
*
* -Karma
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* -Karma
* What are you saying!?
*
* -Karma
* Did you not just tell us
* that he missed Edgeworth
* on purpose!?
*
* -Phoenix
* Huh? Oh, uh, right.

********************************************

***To create a witness**********************
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

-Phoenix
I believe he shot twice to
create a witness, Your Honor.

-Judge
Create a witness...?

-Phoenix
The murderer lifts his pistol
and fires one shot.

-Phoenix
That ensures that anyone who
heard the shot would look
at the lake.

-Phoenix
Indeed, Ms. Hart did exactly
that after hearing the first gunshot.

-Phoenix
Next!

-Phoenix
The murderer waits a bit
and he fires again.

-Phoenix
Then...

-Phoenix
The murderer jumps
from the boat himself!

-Phoenix
Leaving the pistol
in the boat behind him.

-Judge
...

-Judge
I see!

-Judge
To someone looking from
the edge of the lake...

-Judge
It would appear that one
of the men on the boat
had shot the other!

-Phoenix
The murderer didn't know
about the automatic camera,
of course.

-Phoenix
That's why he shot twice
to draw attention to the
boat!

-Judge
Hmm...

-Phoenix
Once you realize that,
everything else falls
into place!

-Phoenix
The boat shop caretaker
swam back to his shop.

-Phoenix
Then he put Mr. Hammond's
wet coat back on the body.

-Phoenix
And threw the body
into the lake!

-Phoenix
This is what happened,
Your Honor.

-Phoenix
These are the events that
transpired that night on
Gourd Lake.

-Judge
...

-Karma
...

...

-Judge
...

-Judge
Bailiff!

-Judge
Bring out the witness
from before!

-Judge
The boat shop caretaker!
Quickly!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Very well. While we are
waiting for the caretaker...

-Judge
I would like to ask the
defendant, Miles Edgeworth,
a few questions.

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth.
Please take the stand.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Mr. Edgeworth...

-Judge
You heard what the
defense has said?

-Edgeworth
Yes.

-Judge
Well?

-Judge
Why did you go to
the lake that night?

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
What Wright has said
was mostly correct.

-Edgeworth
Astonishingly so, actually.

-Edgeworth
Yes...

-Edgeworth
Several days ago, I received
a letter.

-Edgeworth
The letter was signed,
"Robert Hammond."

-Edgeworth
He asked me to come to the
boat shop by the lake at
midnight on Christmas Eve.

-Edgeworth
He said he had something
very important to discuss
with me.

-Judge
Something important?

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
I'm sorry. I can't say
what it was.

-Judge
Hmm...

-Guard
Your Honor, sir!

-Judge
Bailiff! We are conducting a
trial here, I ask that you
remain quiet...

-Guard
The witness has disappeared!
He isn't at the boat shop,
either!

-Judge
What!?

-Guard
What should I do?

-Judge
F-find him, quickly!
We cannot allow him
to get away!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Judge
Mr. von Karma!
Your witness has disappeared!

-Karma
...

-Karma
A search warrant has already
been issued.

-Judge
Hmm...

-Judge
It goes without saying that
I cannot declare a verdict
under these circumstances.

-Judge
I will extend the trial until
tomorrow, the final day
allowed.

-Judge
I request that the police
department utilize all its
forces to find that witness!

-Judge
Am I understood?

-Karma
...

-Judge
One more thing.

-Judeg
Just who is that boat shop
caretaker?

-Judge
I think his identity has
become very important
to this trial.

-Judge
I want him, and I want
to know who he is.

-Karma
...

-Judge
Very well.
Court is adjourned!

Defendant Lobby No. 2

-Maya
Yay, Nick! You did it!

-Phoenix
Yeah...

-Phoenix
Well, at least we got
out from under that
guilty verdict...

-Maya
And what about Larry!
That was something else!

-Maya
Even von Karma didn't know
what to do with his testimony!

-Maya
Larry really helped us out!

-Phoenix
Sure, once I sifted through
his "unique" testimony.

-Phoenix
Still... he did save us.

-Phoenix
I just wish our cases weren't
so down to the wire all the
time.

-Maya
I know what you mean.

-Maya
Sometimes I feel like it's
us on trial instead of our
clients!

-Phoenix
Hey, Edgeworth...

-Edgeworth
...

-Maya
Umm... Mr. Edgeworth?

-Edgeworth
!

-Edgeworth
D-did you say something?

-Maya
Don't look so pained!

-Maya
I mean, it looks like you're
probably going to get off
the hook!

-Maya
You could try to smile
just a little...? Relax!

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
I'm sorry...

-Edgeworth
But... I fear it's not over
for me yet.

-Phoenix
Wh-what do you mean?

-Edgeworth
Wright...

-Edgeworth
There's something that's
been troubling me for a
long time now.

-Edgeworth
And I don't know whether or
not to tell you...

-Phoenix
Edgeworth?

-Edgeworth
No... there's so little
time left.

-Edgeworth
I want to tell you, to
get it off my chest, but...

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Hmm. I can't make up my mind.

-Edgeworth
...

-Phoenix
What is this about, Edgeworth?

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
It's... a nightmare I've had.

-Edgeworth
A memory of a crime...
that I committed.

-Phoenix
A crime you committed?

-Edgeworth
A memory... of a murder.

* -Butz
* But, seriously, Nick.
*
* -Butz
* That boat shop caretaker

* Way to spoil the mood, Larry.
*
* -Butz
* Hey, I'm just a guy sitting
* in the audience, you know?
*
* -Butz
* But from where I was sitting,
* Edgey seemed pretty... edgy.
*
* -Butz
* I mean, can you really
* know he's telling the
* truth about that night?
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Maya
* Nick?
*
* -Phoenix
* I don't know.

* -Maya
* Why do you trust Mr. Edgeworth
* so much?
*
* -Maya
* I mean, he's changed
* recently, true.
*
* -Maya
* But when we first met
* him, he was kind of a
* jerk, don't ya think?
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* You didn't know him back then.
*
* -Phoenix
* Back when he wanted to
* become a defense attorney.
*
* -Maya
* Wait...
*
* -Maya
* Was that when you two were
* classmates?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yes. In grade school...
*
* -Phoenix
* They saved me...
* Miles...
*
* -Phoenix
* And Larry.
* They saved me and I'll
* never forget it.
*
* -Phoenix
* That's why I became a
* defense attorney, you know.
*
* -Maya
* Whaaaat!?
*
* -Maya
* Hey, hey, Larry.
* What's he talking about?
*
* -Butz
* Huh? Uh... um...

* -Maya
* Okay, Nick. Out with it!
* I'm going to hear this
* story today, and that's final!
*
* -Phoenix
* Okay, okay.
*
* -Phoenix
* It's kind of a long story,
* so hang in there.
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* It was the beginning of
* Spring, 4th grade.
*
* -Phoenix
* I was on trial. A class trial.
*
* -Maya
* A c-class trial!?

********************************************

***Talk about "The class trial"*************
*
* -Phoenix
* You remember, Larry?
* Spring, 4th grade?
*
* -Phoenix
* A kid in my class got his
* lunch money stolen.
*
* -Maya
* Lunch money?
*
* -Phoenix
* Our school was really small.
*
* -Phoenix
* Every month, kids would bring
* in an envelope with money for
* lunch from home.
*
* -Maya
* Huh, I see.
*
* -Phoenix
* Anyway, this kid's envelope
* disappeared. With $38.00 still
* inside.
*
* -Butz
* Oh... Yeah, now that you
* mention it, I do remember
* that!
*
* -Phoenix
* I can see why you'd
* forget though.
*
* -Phoenix
* You were out of school
* that day.
*
* -Phoenix
* Anyway, the envelope had
* been stolen during PE class.
*
* -Phoenix
* I was coming down with a cold,
* so I'd skipped PE that day.
*
* -Phoenix
* I was the only one not
* in class.
*
* -Maya
* So... they thought you did it?
*
* -Phoenix
* Yeah. The kids in class said
* I should be put on trial.
*
* -Maya
* Trial...?
*
* -Phoenix
* So the next day we held a
* classroom trial, with me
* as the defendant.
*

* "Guilty!" "He did it!"
* "Guilty!" "It was you!"

* -Teacher
* "Now, Phoenix, you know you
* shouldn't steal people's
* money! It's not right."
*
* -Phoenix
* In the end, even the teacher
* thought I'd done it.
*
* -Teacher
* "Apologize to the class,
* Phoenix."
*
* -Phoenix
* I... I didn't know what
* was happening.
*
* -Phoenix
* I was so sad...
* I couldn't stop crying.
*
* -Phoenix
* Everyone was staring at me
* like I'd done it...
*
* -Phoenix
* I tried to apologize.
* I went over to where
* the boy was sitting...
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* That's when it happened.
*
* *OBJECTION!*
*
* "He shouldn't have to
* apologize!"
*
* "The only thing that belongs
* in a trial is evidence!"
*
* "Anything else has no place!"
*
* "You should all be ashamed...
* amateurs!"
*
* -Teacher
* "M-Miles?"
*
* -Edgeworth
* "It wasn't you who stole
* my money, was it?"
*
* -Phoenix
* "No..."
*
* -Edgeworth
* "Then you shouldn't
* apologize!"
*
* -Edgeworth
* "Everyone's been shouting
* you did it, but no one has
* any proof!"
*
* -Edgeworth
* "That is why, Your Honor,
* this boy is innocent!"
*
* -Teacher
* "B-but Miles, it was your
* money that was stolen!"
*
* "Yeah yeah!"
* "He did it! He's the one!"
*
* "We don't need proof!"
* "Make him say he's sorry!"
*
* "Why don't you all just
* shut up!!!"
*
* -Butz
* "This is always how it is,
* everybody ganging up and
* picking on one person."
*
* -Butz
* "Just think how he feels!"
*
* -Butz
* "He said he didn't do it,
* so he didn't do it!"
*
* ...
*
* -Teacher
* "Very well."
*
* -Teacher
* "I will replace the money
* myself."
*
* -Teacher
* "This class trial is over."
*
* -Phoenix
* That's how it happened.
*
* -Phoenix
* After that, the three of
* us were always friends.
*
* --------------------------------------------
*
* -Maya
* Wow... I had no idea!
*
* -Butz
* Yeah... I had no idea, either!
* I mean, I forgot.
*
* -Phoenix
* That's when I learned what
* it meant to be alone.
*
* -Phoenix
* Totally alone, without a
* friend in the world.
*
* -Maya
* You did a good thing, Larry!
*
* -Butz
* Um, yeah, well...
*
* -Butz
* I was just lucky that I took
* the day off from school.
*
* -Butz
* If I'd been there they would
* have thought I'd done it!
*
* -Butz
* So, I took it kind of
* personally, see.
*
* -Phoenix
* ("When something smells.
* it's usually the Butz.")
*
********************************************

***Talk about "Edgeworth's goals"***********
*
* -Phoenix
* Anyway, Edgeworth and I talked
* after that class trial.
*
* -Phoenix
* That's when I heard his
* father was a defense attorney.
*
* -Phoenix
* I remember, his eyes would
* shine when he talked about
* his father.
*
* --------------------------------------------
*
* -Edgeworth
* "I'm going to become a defense
* attorney, just like my Dad!"
*
* -Edgeworth
* "A famous defense attorney!"
*
* --------------------------------------------
*
* -Phoenix
* Then, a few months later,
* he suddenly transferred
* to another school.
*
* -Maya
* The DL-6 Incident...
*
* -Phoenix
* Right. I'm not sure, but the
* transfer probably had to do
* with his father's death.
*
* -Maya
* That's so sad!
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* It was several years later
* when I heard Edgeworth's
* name again.
*
* -Phoenix
* There was an article about him
* in the newspaper.
*
* -Phoenix
* The headline was something
* like "Dark Suspicions of
* a Demon Attorney."
*
* -Phoenix
* Fabricating evidence,
* manipulating testimonies,
* covering up facts...
*
* -Phoenix
* The article said he'd do
* anything to get a guilty
* verdict. Anything.
*
* -Butz
* But why?
*
* -Butz
* What happened!? I mean,
* that's not the Edgey I
* used to know at all!
*
* -Phoenix
* That's what I thought too.
*
* -Phoenix
* I tried to get in touch
* with him I don't know
* how many times...
*
* -Phoenix
* He never replied.
*
* -Maya
* I guess he didn't
* want to see his
* old friends...
*
* -Phoenix
* I couldn't just drop
* it, though.
*
* -Phoenix
* I wanted to meet him, to
* learn why he had become
* who he became.
*
* -Phoenix
* That's when I decided.
*
* -Maya
* ...!
*
* -Maya
* Wait... You don't mean...?
*
* -Maya
* That's why!?
*
* -Maya
* That's why you became
* a defense attorney!?
* To meet Edgeworth!?
*
* -Phoenix
* If I was a defense attorney,
* I knew he'd have to meet me
* whether he wanted to or not.
*
* -Phoenix
* In court.
*
* -Phoenix
* ...
*
* -Phoenix
* Edgeworth believed in me,
* and I beleive in him.
*
* -Phoenix
* He's in pain...
* And no one's on his side.
*
* -Phoenix
* I'm the only one who knows
* the real Edgeworth. I'm the
* only one who can help him.
*
* -Butz
* Whoa... Nick.
*
* -Butz
* S-so, is that why you
* helped me out for free?
*
* -Phoenix
* Uh... yes.
*
* -Phoenix
* I helped you because
* I believed in you.
*
* -Phoenix
* (Except I don't remember
* saying I'd do it for free...)
*
* -Butz
* Aww, Nick! Nick!!!
*
* -Maya
* Nick!
*
* -Maya
* We have to save Mr. Edgeworth
* if it's the last thing we do,
* okay?
*
* -Phoenix
* Right.
* (It very well may be...)
*
* -Maya
* First, there's that rental
* boat shop caretaker.
*
* -Maya
* We need to find out
* who or what he is!
*
* -Phoenix
* I'd settle for who.
*
* -Phoenix
* (I guess I can clean out
* some of this evidence
* I no longer need...)
*
* -Phoenix
* (...)
*
* -Phoenix
* Okay, let's go!

MOVE TO: Detention Center

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

December 27
Detention Center
Visitor's Room

-Edgeworth
...

-Phoenix
You look as grim as always.

-Edgeworth
Hmph.

-Maya
Um, Mr. Edgeworth?
I heard the story about
the class trial...

-Edgeworth
Class trial? What do you mean?

-Maya
You... don't remember?

-Edgeworth
No, I don't.

-Maya
Your lunch money was
stolen, wasn't it?
In 4th grade...?

-Edgeworth
Lunch money...?

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Oh... Oh, right.
Yes, I seem to remember
something like that.

-Maya
Nick.
I think you're the only
one who really remembers.

-Phoenix
Well, it probably only
really mattered to me
anyway.

-Maya
Mr. Edgeworth, didn't
you know?

-Maya
That trial was the reason
Nick became a defense
attorney!

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Ridiculous!

-Phoenix
(Gee... thanks.)

-Edgeworth
That said...

-Edgeworth
It does sound like the
kind of thing you'd do.

-Edgeworth
You haven't changed a bit,
have you, Wright? So...simple.
To a fault, even.

-Phoenix
Well, maybe yeah, but...

-Phoenix
I think you changed
too much, Edgeworth.

-Edgeworth
...

-Edgeworth
Perhaps.

***Present Lake Photo***********************

* -Edgeworth
* What are you showing me
* this picture for?
*
* -Phoenix
* Um, uh, no reason.
*
* -Edgeworth
* ...
*
* -Edgeworth
* You know, I was impressed
* by your deduction in the
* trial today.
*
* -Edgeworth
* Granted, you were at the
* end of your rope, but still.
*
* -Maya
* Nick, he noticed.
*
* -Phoenix
* Hah hah.

*
* -Phoenix
* (Tomorrow... Could that be

*
* -Edgeworth
* But... even if the case is

*
* -Edgeworth
* It will never be erased from
