       II. PHOENIX WRIGHT OVERVIEW                                        [0201]
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ 
    
    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is a point and click text adventure for Nintendo 
    DS. The game depicts about the legal system in a fictional world where the 
    golden rule of their criminal code is: "Guilty until proven innocent" (instead 
    of innocent until proven guilty). The burden of proof lies in the defense's 
    shoulder (instead of the prosecutor) to prove that his client is innocent.
    
    In this game, we are playing as a young man by the name of Phoenix Wright, a 
    defense attorney who seems to always get involve in interesting cases 
    throughout his career. His confidence bluffing during the trial has helped him 
    a lot in prolonging the trial, preventing the judge from declaring his client 
    to be GUILTY, so he can have more time to find more evidence to help his 
    client. He also carries out investigation in the crime scene and its 
    surrounding by himself (and his ONE assistant!) in order to build a strong case 
    for his client.
    
    Most of the prosecutors Phoenix faced in the game are obsessed with a 
    "perfect" record, i.e. they have a 100% record that the defendant would always 
    get a GUILTY verdict in their case (they even forge the evidence in order to 
    accomplish this!). Well, that's before they have to deal with Phoenix Wright. 
    Somehow, Phoenix managed to win his case in almost every trial, even 
    though the situation in the first hearing looks almost impossible to turn 
    around. That's why all the episodes have the word "Turnabout" in their titles 
    and Phoenix Wright is called an ACE ATTORNEY!! (and we have a game to play...)
    
    This second game contains a lot of spoilers from the first game, so unless you 
    don't plan to play the first game for a long time (or you like to be spoiled), 
    you may want to play the first game first before starting on this game. The 
    original game is also a lot easier compared to its sequel, as Phoenix was still 
    an amateur defense attorney in the first game.
    
    The episodes and scripts in Phoenix Wright games are nothing short of wonderful 
    and entertaining! They were really well-done and easy to understand. Even the 
    localisation and the translation of the scripts (which are originally Japanese) 
    are excellent. Although there are multitude of spelling mistakes and grammar 
    errors in this second game, most of the humour and the meaning of the texts are 
    not lost and can be easily understood by the Western society.
    
    One might say this game is like a live interactive crime-fiction book with 
    beautiful graphics. And that's true! If you enjoy thinking logically and 
    reading mystery or crime-fiction/detective book, this game is for you. I 
    guarantee you will love it!

    Wellington's blabbering, Moe's random stuff, Oldbag's chatters, etc. 
    
    Or see what funny things will ensue when Phoenix present some random stuff to 
    various people during investigation...
    
    Or you want to reference and find the exact quote of some memorable or silly 
    stuff that being said throughout the game...
    
    Or you just want to read the case again like a book! 
    
    Whatever your need is, this game script should be able to help you, because as 
    has been said above, Phoenix Wright game is a text adventure game, which means 
    the text IS the game! It is just like an interactive book (with beautiful 
    graphics of course!), so if you have played the game and want to have some more 
    nostalgia with it, this script is for you!

    Game script can look a bit like a text dump, aka wall of (meaningless) text in 
    random order. Therefore, some formatting needs to be done in order for these 
    texts to appear in a meaningful sequence and easily searchable.
    
    There are two distinct parts in this game, the investigation part and the 
    trial. The formatting for each part is quite different, but there are a few 
    things that remain the same for both parts:
    
    1. Basic formatting
    <Name tag>:
      Line 1
      Line 2
      Line 3
    
     --> The lines were cut off as they were in the game, for authenticity.
     --> If there isn't any <Name tag>, it means the game also did not have it.
    
    2. A full ---- line
     --> Indicates a change of scene.
    
    3. A halfway ---- line
     --> Indicates a minor change of situation, usually a flashback or a black
         screen (when thinking) or a person going out.
    
    4. xxx three-sided box
     --> You will lose some of your life bar if you choose to do this.
    
    5. *** three-sided box
     --> Choice. At the end of this box, there is usually an indication for you to
         CONTINUE or RETURN TO QUESTION.
    
    6. RETURN TO THE QUESTION BEFORE IT
     --> Going back up to the original question (to prevent dead-end loop).
    
    7. All misspells and grammar mistakes from the game were put in here as is.
    
    
    The following sections will specify the formatting of this document in greater 
    details for investigation part and trial part:
    
    
    -------------
    Investigation                                                            [0322]
    -------------
    
    1. A full ---- line
     --> Moving from one place to another.
     --> Using Maya's Magatama to unlock Psyche-Locks.
    
    2. A halfway ---- line
     --> When you can start examine the background and talk to the person.
     --> After talking to the person, if there is something else happening.
    
    3. +++ three-sided box
     --> Examine (labelled). Note: The labelled names may not be official.
    
    4. >>> three-sided box
     --> Talk (labelled).
    
    5. *** three-sided box
     --> Present (labelled). Evidence first, then profile, then anything else.
    
    6. MOVE TO: "<name of place>"
     --> This shows where you need to go next. This excludes any middle room.
    
    7. In any episode, when you examine the same stuff or present the same thing to
    the same person, and the text appears to be the same, I will only write it at
    the place where the text showed up for the first time. Therefore, if there is 
    something missing in the second part of the investigation, it probably has been 
    done in the first investigation part.
    
    
    -----                          
    Trial                                                                    [0323]
    -----
    
    1. A full ---- line
     --> Start and end of cross-examination.
    
    2. A halfway ---- line
     --> The additional comment after Witness Testimony.
     --> The additional comment after cycling through all Witness statement during
         the Cross Examination.
    
    3. Each statement of Witness Testimony will be labelled (1), (2), etc.
    
    4. Indentation during Cross Examination.
     --> What you get if you PRESS in that statement.

      How did I get into this

      That's far enough!
    
      You can't run forever,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright!
    
    Phoenix:
      Wha...!?
      What have I done wrong!?
    
      I cannot allow you
      to go on like this!

    Phoenix:
      B-But I'm just a simple

    Phoenix:
      What a nightmare...
    
    Phoenix:
      And I bet it was this
      ringtone that caused it...
    
    Phoenix:
      I really shouldn't be dozing
      off right before a trial
      starts anyway...
    
    Phone:
      ...*beep*...
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh... looks like they hung up.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Ah, good.
      I finally found it.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Talk about a close call.
      I hate to do this to you, but...
    
    ? ? ?:
      It's nothing personal...
      Mr. Attorney.

    A few minutes later...
    District Court
    Defendant Lobby No. 1
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      Ouch...
      My head...
      It's throbbing...
    
    Phoenix:
      And why does it feel...
      so foggy in there...?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Gooood morning!
    
    Phoenix:
      Ack!
    
    Phoenix:
      Uh...
      G-Good morning...
    
    ? ? ?:
      What's wrong!?
      You don't look well!
    
    ? ? ?:
      People are at their best
      first thing in the morning!
      Where's that fighting spirit!?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
      Sorry, but can you please
      turn the cheeriness down?
    
    Phoenix:
      My head... sort of hurts...
    
    ? ? ?:
      Roger that!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    ? ? ?:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
      Um...
      Am I in trouble or something?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Huh?
      "Trouble...?"
    
    Phoenix:
      W-Wait, never mind.
      You're a policewoman,
      right?
    
    Phoenix:
      I thought maybe I had
      done something wrong...?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Wh-What are you talking about?
    
    ? ? ?:
      I'm the one in trouble!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
      What?
    
    Byrde:
      I'm placing my life in your
      hands today, Mr. Phoenix
      Wright!
    
    Phoenix:
      Life...
      in...
      my hands...?
    
    Byrde:
      You promised me!
      You said you would prove
      that I was not guilty!
    
    Phoenix:
      "N... Not... guilty"?
    
    Byrde:
      Just when I thought all hope
      was lost; when all the other
      lawyers had laughed me off...
    
    Byrde:
      "Leave it to me!" you said!
      You! The one and only Phoenix
      Wright came to save the day!
    
    Byrde:
      And just like that, I was
      moved to tears, sir!
    
    Byrde:
      I'll never forget what you're
      doing for me, EVER!
    
    Phoenix:
      (What is this girl babbling
      about...?)
    
    Byrde:
      Actually, I really love to
      watch court proceedings, and
      I always root for you to win!
    
    Byrde:
      When I'm off duty, I like to
      come here and...
    
    Byrde:
      ...?
    
    Byrde:
      What's wrong? You've been
      acting really strange and you
      keep staring at me.
    
    Byrde:
      You're making me kind of
      nervous, sir...
    
    Phoenix:
      Oh... sorry.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Hmm... I'm afraid to ask,
      but here goes...)
    
    Phoenix:
      So, this might sound bad,
      but... uh...
      Who are you...?
    
    Byrde:
      Whaaaaat!?
    
    Byrde:
      Mr. Wright!!
      How can you say that!?
    
    Byrde:
      How can you do this to the
      fragile heart of a girl about
      to go on trial...?
    
    Byrde:
      You're absolutely horrible!
    
    Phoenix:
      No -- I mean, I didn't mean it
      like that!
    
    Byrde:
      Is this how a defense attorney
      treats his clients, sir!?
      I can't believe this!!
    
    Phoenix:
      No, it's just...
      ...Well, I think you have the
      wrong person.
    
    Phoenix:
      I'm...
    
    Byrde:
      Yes...!?
      "I'm..."!?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      ... I'm...
      Who am I?
      (Why am I drawing a blank...?)
    
    Bailiff:
      The trial will begin shortly.
    
    Bailiff:
      Will the defendant and her
      lawyer please proceed to
      the courtroom immediately!
    
    Byrde:
      The trial's about to start!
      I'm counting on you in
      there, OK?
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (Hmm... I guess I must
      have amnesia...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Let's see... What can I piece
      together...?)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Hmm, from our conversation,
      I can safely say that I'm
      probably a defense attorney.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (And that girl...
      I said I'd prove her "not
      guilty"...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (I can't believe I made such
      an irresponsible promise.)
    
    Phoenix:
      Aaaaaargh!
      Someone, please!!
    
    Phoenix:
      Tell me this is just a bad
      dream!
    
      (Why do I get the feeling this
      is one dream I won't be waking
      up from...? *gulp*)

      The prosecution is ready,
      Your Honor.

    Phoenix:
      Um, er...
      Are you talking to me...?
    
    Judge:
      Do you see any other defense
      attorneys here?

      Now then, are you ready?
    
    *** Yes ************************************

    * Phoenix:
    *   Yes, Your Honor.

    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (If her life is in my

    Phoenix:
      Actually, you see, Your
      Honor...
      My memory is kind of...
    
    Judge:
      The court will not hear
      the defense's excuses.
    
    Judge:
      Because the defendant is a
      member of the police, this
      case is under great scrutiny.
    
    Judge:
      Therefore, we must make this
      trial fair but swift.
    
    Judge:
      I believe I have told you this
      before. I hope you're not
      telling me you've forgotten!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Actually, I did...)
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Payne, your opening
      statement, please.
    
    Payne:
      Yes, Your Honor.
    
    Payne:
      As I'm sure you're well aware,
      the defendant is accused of
      killing her lover.
    
    Payne:
      What's worse, her lover was a
      fellow police officer!
    
    Phoenix:
      A policeman?
      You did WHAT to a policeman!?
    
    Byrde:
      It wasn't me!
    
    Byrde:
      And besides,
      Dustin and I...
    
    Byrde:
      We weren't "lovers" like that!
    
    Payne:
      In any case...
    
    Payne:
      The prosecution will prove
      that the guilty party is none
      other than the defendant!
    
    Judge:
      Very well.
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Payne, please call your
      first witness.
    
    Payne:
      Hee, hee, hee.
      It's been a while, Mr. Wright.
    
    Payne:
      Let's see what you've
      learned since last time.
    
    Payne:
      I won't show you any mercy
      this time, rookie!
    
    Phoenix:
      Okaaay...
      (And who are you again!?)
    
    Payne:
      Please bring Detective
      Dick Gumshoe to the stand.
    
    Byrde:
      Here we go!
      Don't let me down, Mr. Wright!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Nowhere to hide...
      I'm sooo dead...)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Payne:
      Witness, please state your
      name and occupation.
    
    Gumshoe:
      My name is Dick Gumshoe, sir.
    
    Gumshoe:
      I'm the detective in charge
      of homicides down at the
      precinct, sir.
    
    Judge:
      You don't look very well,
      Detective.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Well, sir, the defendant...
      She works under me,
      so, you know...
    
    Phoenix:
      You work under that detective?
    
    Byrde:
      Yes, sir! And while I was a
      trainee, he was always
      watching out for me, sir!
    
    Byrde:
      He's such a wonderful guy,
      sir! I'll never forget what
      he's done for me!
    
    Phoenix:
      (OK, calm down, I believe
      you.)
    
    Payne:
      Detective Gumshoe.
    
    Payne:
      Please describe for us
      the details of this murder.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Yes, sir.
    
    Gumshoe:
      It happened at the park near
      headquarters, "Exposé Park".
    
    Gumshoe:
      The victim was one of the
      local cops, Dustin Prince.
    
    Gumshoe:
      He was pushed down from the
      benches on the upper path,
      sir.
    
    Gumshoe:
      The landing beat his body up
      bad and snapped his neck.
    
    Payne:
      The details are listed in the
      report that was distributed
      yesterday...
    
    Judge:
      Ah, yes.
      This autopsy report, correct?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Why do I not remember
      getting a copy...?)
    
    Judge:
      I see everything is
      in order here.
    
    Judge:
      Even the estimated time of
      death is unusually well
      documented!
    
    Gumshoe:
      The victim's watch stopped
      from the impact of the
      landing, sir.
    
    Gumshoe:
      The results of the autopsy
      confirmed the time of death.
    
    Payne:
      If I may, Your Honor,
    
    Payne:
      the prosecution would like to
      submit this photograph.
    
    Judge:
      Very well.
      The court accepts
      it into evidence.
    
    *Crime Photo 1 added
     to the Court Record.*
    
    Judge:
      Now then, I recall at
      yesterday's preliminary
      hearing,
    
    Judge:
      a very important piece of
      evidence was brought to
      our attention.
    
    Payne:
      Yes, Your Honor.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Yes, sir.
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes... I guess?
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Wright!
      Is your head on right today!?
    
    Judge:
      There was a very crucial piece
      of evidence found under the
      victim's body!
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, was there?
    
    Byrde:
      Have you lost your mind!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Well, actually...
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, it's just nerves.
      Give me a second.
    
    Byrde:
      Whaaaat!?
    
    Byrde:
      How can you talk like such an
      amateur!? I thought you were
      a pro, sir!
    
    Byrde:
      ...
    
    Byrde:
      Alright, sir.
      I'll help you through this!
    
    Byrde:
      At a time like this, maybe you
      ought to take a glance at the
      Court Record!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Court Record?
    
    Byrde:
      Yup! Info about evidence and
      people involved with this case
      are all listed there, sir!
    
    Byrde:
      You can look at the Court
      Record by touching the
      Court Record Button!
    
    Phoenix:
      The Court Record Button...?
      You really know what you're
      talking about, huh?
    
    Byrde:
      It's too bad I'm a cop, right?
      Just think! I could totally
      be a legal aide instead!
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes, Your Honor!
    
    Judge:
      Court is in session.
      Save your chit-chat for later!
    
    Phoenix:
      S-Sorry, Your Honor...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Well, I guess I'd better
      check the Court Record,
      and see what I can find...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (What was it again?
      The Court Record Button...?)
    
    Judge:
      Alright, Mr. Wright.
      Let's see if your notes are in
      order.
    
    Judge:
      What was the piece of evidence
      found underneath the victim's
      body?
    
    *** A wallet *******************************
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Um... I'm pretty sure it was a
    *   wallet...
    *
    * Payne:
    *   *OBJECTION!*
    *
    * Payne:
    *   This is a court of law! You
    *   can't just make wild guesses!
    *
    * Judge:
    *   Agreed.
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   They're right, Mr. Wright!
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   You have to check the Court
    *   Record before you answer!
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   If you don't, your client
    *   might end up with a
    *   guilty verdict!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   ("Your client"? You do realize
    *   that's you, right?)
    *
    * Judge:
    *   I will ask you one more time.
    *
    * RETURN TO QUESTION
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Glasses ********************************
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   That's simple, Your Honor.
    *   A broken pair of glasses.
    *
    * Judge:
    *   That's right.

    * Payne:
    *   *OBJECTION!*
    *
    * Payne:
    *   Mr. Wright! Please stick to
    *   the facts of this case!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   *OBJECTION!*
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   He is a policeman, correct?
    *
    * Payne:
    *   I don't think you understand
    *   the problem here.
    *
    * Judge:
    *   I will not have an uninformed
    *   lawyer in my court.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Yes, Your Honor.
    *   (Guess there's no fooling
    *   those two.)
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   Please, for my sake, look at
    *   the Court Record, sir!
    *
    * Phoenix:

    *   Button, right?)

    Gumshoe:
      The victim grabbed the
      criminal's glasses as he
      was being shoved, sir,
    
    Gumshoe:
      and held onto them as he fell.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Byrde:
      Hey!
      Why are you giving me the
      evil eye!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Those glasses you're
      wearing...
    
    Byrde:
      Nnnngh...
    
    Byrde:
      Yes, this is my spare pair.
    
    Byrde:
      But these glasses they found
      at the scene of the crime are
      not mine! I swear, sir!
    
    Phoenix:
      You sure about that?
    
    Byrde:
      Look, it was a coincidence
      that on that same day, I
      accidentally stepped on mine!
    
    Phoenix:
      (A "coincidence" she says...
      Urk...)
    
    Payne:
      Eh hee hee hee hee hee hee!
      Your Honor.
    
    Payne:
      I have further evidence to
      present.
    
    Judge:
      Oh? You have more?
    
    Payne:
      And this evidence is very
      decisive.
    
    Judge:
      Very well!
    
    Judge:
      Let's hear from our witness
      about this "evidence".
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- Decisive Evidence --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      There's something even more
      incriminating than the glasses
      under the victim's body, sir.
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      During his date, the victim
      was pushed from the bench
      area.
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      But he managed to write the
      culprit's name on the ground
      where he landed.
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      I don't like saying it, but it
      was clearly the defendant's
      name, "Maggie", sir.
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      With this piece of evidence
      and the glasses, it's hard to
      say she's not the culprit.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Payne:
      This is a picture of the
      writing, Your Honor.
    
    Judge:
      Why, this is...!
    
    Judge:
      Yes, I can see the name
      is clearly written here.
    
    Payne:
      The prosecution would like
      to submit this picture.
    
    Judge:
      Understood.
      The court accepts it into
      evidence.
    
    *Crime Photo 2 added to the
     Court Record.*
    
    Phoenix:
      As if the glasses alone didn't
      make you look suspicious,
    
    Phoenix:
      the victim even wrote your
      name clear as day on the
      ground!
    
    Byrde:
      But, but, but, I already told
      you! Those glasses aren't
      mine!!
    
    Phoenix:
      And how do you explain his
      dying message?
    
    Byrde:
      ...
    
    Byrde:
      It's a conspiracy!
      I'm not guilty, sir!
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Wright, you may cross-
      examine the witness.
    
    Phoenix:
      Cross-examine?
    
    Byrde:
      This is it!
      I'm counting on you!
    
    Phoenix:
      Sure... But what am I supposed
      to do?
    
    Byrde:
      WHAT!?
    
    Byrde:
      This isn't like you at all!
    
    Byrde:
      Normally, this is the part
      where you get in the
      witnesses' faces!
    
    Phoenix:
      Get in their faces and do
      what?
    
    Byrde:
      I guess there's no way
      around it!
    
    Byrde:
      OK, I'm going to lend you a
      hand!
    
    Byrde:
      The prosecution's witnesses
      all hide things from the
      court,
    
    Byrde:
      which means they lie from
      time to time.
    
    Phoenix:
      Lie?
    
    Phoenix:
      But... isn't that detective
      your superior?
    
    Byrde:
      Well, even if they don't mean
      to lie, sometimes people just
      remember things wrong.
    
    Phoenix:
      Hmm, like that detective.
      He does sort of look like
      a scatterbrain...
    
    Byrde:
      It doesn't matter!
      Either way, it's bad for us,
      sir!
    
    Byrde:
      That's why when you question
      witnesses, you have to find
      and expose their lies!
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Wright.
      Your cross-examination,
      please.
    
    Phoenix:
      Y-Yes, Your Honor.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Talk about trial by fire.
      Here goes nothing.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (As long as I can "expose the
      lies", we should be alright.)

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- Decisive Evidence --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      There's something even more
      incriminating than the glasses
      under the victim's body, sir.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Hmm, about those glasses...
    
         Phoenix:
           Do you have any proof
           that those belong to my
           client?
    
         Gumshoe:
           The lenses are for near-
           sightedness, and are almost
           the same strength as hers.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Even the frames look kinda
           like the ones she's wearing
           in her ID, pal.
           
         Phoenix:
           Hmm...
           (What should I do now?)

         *   "Almost" and "kinda" are not

         * Gumshoe:

         *   anything else.

         * Phoenix:
         *   So what you are saying,
         *   detective,
         *
         * Phoenix:
         *   is that you have nothing that
         *   proves those glasses are
         *   my client's.
         *
         * Gumshoe:
         *   Um, something like that...

         *   Wow, that was amazing!
         *
         * Byrde:

    Gumshoe:
      During his date, the victim
      was pushed from the bench
      area.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Now, you're sure he was pushed
           and that's how he fell?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yeah, pal. If you look at the
           wounds on the victim's body,
    
         Gumshoe:
           there's no way it was anything
           else.
    
         Phoenix:
           Hmm...
    
         Judge:
           Please continue with
           your testimony, detective.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Anyway, the victim fell pretty
           far...
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      But he managed to write the
      culprit's name on the ground
      where he landed.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           The culprit's name?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yeah. I was surprised, too.
    
         Gumshoe:
           I didn't want to believe it,
           but...
    
         Phoenix:
           Was the name that of my
           client?
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      I don't like saying it, but it
      was clearly the defendant's
      name, "Maggie", sir.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Are you absolutely certain!?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Sorry, pal, but that's what it
           said.
    
         Gumshoe:
           This is a picture of it. No
           No matter which way you look,
           it still says "Maggie".
    
         Phoenix:
           (Hmm... He's got a point...)
    
         Byrde:
           Hey, hold on!
    
         Phoenix:
           Huh?
    
         Byrde:
           Don't "huh" me!
           I know the picture says
           "Maggie", but...
    
         Phoenix:
           (Now that she mentions it,
           something does feel kind of
           off about this picture...)
    
         Byrde:
           That's how you know you found
           a contradiction! Now hurry up
           and present some evidence!
    
         Phoenix:
           (So THAT'S what spotting a
           contradiction feels like...)
    
         Phoenix:
           (I'd better check the Court
           Record again...)
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      With this piece of evidence
      and the glasses, it's hard to
      say she's not the culprit.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           And you are certain that it
           was the victim who wrote the
           name on the ground?
    
         Gumshoe:
           There were scratches on his
           fingers from the rough sand,
    
         Gumshoe:
           and there were grains of sand
           stuck under his pointer finger
           nail.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm... It certainly seems
           that the name was written
           by the victim himself.
    
         Phoenix:
           (That didn't go well.)
    
         Phoenix:
           (If it really was him, then
           we're in a lot of trouble...)

    * Phoenix:
    *   Um, about this "presenting
    *   evidence"...
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   OK. When you're listening to 
    *   testimony, you can compare
    *   it with the Court Record.
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   If you do that, you're sure to
    *   find contradictions in the
    *   witness's statements!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   C-Contradictions?
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   Well, there are many reasons
    *   why a testimony might
    *   contradict the evidence.
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   The witness might be lying,
    *   or maybe they're just
    *   mistaken.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Uh huh.
    *   And?
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   You still have no idea what
    *   I'm talking about??
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   When you find a contradiction,
    *   open the Court Record to the
    *   item you need...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   And then I present that
    *   evidence, right!?
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   You got it!
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   You can also present people's
    *   profiles as evidence!
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   With so many items, make sure
    *   you present the right thing!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Hmm... Sounds complicated,
    *   but I'll give it a try.
    *   You're pretty good at this.
    *
    * Byrde:
    *   Wow, being praised by a pro!
    *   I don't know what to say!

    Phoenix:
      (What...
      What's come over me...?)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Without thinking, I just
      blurted out, "Objection!"...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (And I yelled it at the top of
      my lungs, finger outstretched,
      ready to take on my opponent!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (What a rush!)
    
    Phoenix:
      Detective Gumshoe!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Y-You talking to me, pal?
    
    Phoenix:
      Please state the defendant's
      name for me!
    
    Payne:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Payne:
      What are you trying to
      prove with this futile
      exercise, Mr. Wright?
    
    Phoenix:
      You'll see. This is a very
      crucial line of questioning!
    
    Phoenix:
      Actually, Mr. Payne, you can
      answer. The defendant's name,
      if you please.
    
    Payne:
      Wh-Where is this ridiculous
      question coming from?
    
    Payne:
      The defendant's, uh, name
      is, uh... "Maggie Byrde".
    
    Phoenix:
      I think someone needs to
      check the Court Record.
    
    Payne:
      What...?
      It says right here that it's
      "Maggey Byrde".
    
    Payne:
      Aaaah!!
    
    Phoenix:
      It looks like the bird
      caught the cat napping!
    
    Judge:
      What's going on here!?
    
    Gumshoe:
      I have no idea either, sir!
    
    Phoenix:
      As you can see,
    
    Phoenix:
      the victim did indeed leave a
      name, "Maggie".
    
    Phoenix:
      However, the defendant's
      name is actually spelled,
      "Maggey"!
    
    Phoenix:
      This is a blatant
      contradiction of facts!
    
    Judge:
      Ohh!
    
    Gumshoe:
      How about that?
      I hadn't even noticed!
    
    Payne:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Payne:
      But, but, but...!
    
    Payne:
      But maybe the victim didn't
      know how to spell her name
      correctly...
    
    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      May I remind you that it was
      you who said,
    
    Phoenix:
      "The defendant is accused of
      killing her lover."
    
    Phoenix:
      If they were truly lovers, it
      would be impossible for him
      to have not known her name!
    
    Payne:
      Noooo!
    
    Judge:
      This is very true.
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Payne.
    
    Payne:
      Y-Yes, Your Honor?
    
    Judge:
      Are you absolutely certain
      that the defendant and the
      victim, Dustin Prince,
    
    Judge:
      were, in fact, lovers?
    
    Payne:
      Y-Yes, I am quite certain,
      Your Honor.
    
    Payne:
      They were a well-known
      couple in the police force.
    
    Judge:
      Detective Gumshoe.
    
    Judge:
      Please testify for the court
      the relationship between the

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- Dustin and Maggey --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      Officer Prince and Officer
      Byrde had been going out for
      about half a year.
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      It sounded like they were even
      talking about marriage.
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      The day of the incident just
      happened to be the victim's
      birthday, sir.
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      Maggey... I mean, Officer
      Byrde, had gotten Officer
      Prince a present.
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      It was something she had
      gotten over 2 months ago.
    
    (6)
    Gumshoe:
      I should know, 'cause she
      came to me to ask what she
      should get for him.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Oh... Those two sound
      like they were close...
    
    Payne:
      Nevertheless, tragedu struck.

      Hmm, yes, I see...

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- Dustin and Maggey --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      Officer Prince and Officer
      Byrde had been going out for
      about half a year.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           How do you know about this?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Every year in March, we have
           a training camp for us cops.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Officer Byrde was a rookie at
           the time, and she and Officer
           Prince seemed to hit it off.
    
         Phoenix:
           (They got close, I take it...)
    
         Gumshoe:
           Actually, I was supposed to
           go, too, but...
    
         Gumshoe:
           I couldn't pay the deposit for
           the trip, so I didn't.
    
         Gumshoe:
           If only I had gone on that
           trip...
    
         Judge:
           What is it?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Oh, uh, nothing, sir!
           Really!
           Anyway...
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      It sounded like they were even
      talking about marriage.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Marriage? But wasn't the
           victim 8 years older than her?
    
         Gumshoe:
           What!? You saying a guy's
           gotta marry someone the
           same age as himself, pal!?
    
         Phoenix:
           No, that's not what I
           meant at all...
    
         Byrde:
           Detective Gumshoe and Dustin
           were only a year apart, you
           know?
    
         Phoenix:
           (Ugh... I think this fella has
           a ways to go before
           marriage...)
    
         Gumshoe:
           Mind your own business, pal!
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      The day of the incident just
      happened to be the victim's
      birthday, sir.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           The day of the incident...
           You mean September 6th?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yeah.
    
         Gumshoe:
           The victim, Officer Prince,
           had just gotten off duty at
           5:30 PM that day,
    
         Gumshoe:
           and since Maggey's night shift
           hadn't started yet, they went
           to the park for a bit...
    
         Judge:
           Ah, I remember when I was
           young and in love. Oh, it was
           a jolly time.
    
         Phoenix:
           (That's great, Your Honor...
           I'm glad you're such a
           cheerful old man...)
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      Maggey... I mean, Officer
      Byrde, had gotten Officer
      Prince a present.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           ... You seem to know a lot
           about the defendant.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Well, that's because, uh, I'm
           her boss. And I've gotta
           watch out for my subordinates!
    
         Phoenix:
           But even what she was going
           to give as a present? Isn't
           that going a bit too far...?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Hey, pal!
           Watch what you say!
    
         Gumshoe:
           I know everything that happens
           under me! If someone so
           much as scratches their...
    
         Phoenix:
           I REALLY don't need to know
           that much...
    
         Payne:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         Payne:
           Mr. Wright! Please refrain
           from badgering the witness!
    
         Judge:
           I agree.
    
         Judge:
           Even if this witness has a
           crush on the defendant,
    
         Judge:
           that should not be the point
           of discussion at this time.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Whoa! Wait a second!
           Why are we talking about
           this!?
    
         Gumshoe:
           It's all YOUR fault, pal!
           You're guilty, guilty, guilty!
           I should have you arrested!
    
         Phoenix:
           (I think the good Detective is
           about done here...)
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      It was something she had
      gotten over 2 months ago.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           "Over 2 months ago?"
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yup.
           She's a very considerate
           woman, pal!
    
         Phoenix:
           So... What was this birthday
           present?
    
         Gumshoe:
           She got him a glove.
    
         Judge:
           A single glove?
           Why would she only give him
           one?
    
         Payne:
           Um, actually, Your Honor, the
           glove in question is a
           baseball glove.
    
         Judge:
           Oh, I see.
           A baseball glove.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Officer Prince was a huge
           baseball fan.
    
         Phoenix:
           (A baseball glove. Hmm...)

    Phoenix:
      There just wasn't anything
      that really stuck out as odd.
    
    Byrde:
      Yeah...
    
    Byrde:
      I wonder what would happen
      if you tried to get more
      information from him?
    
    Phoenix:
      Get more information?
    
    Byrde:
      Yeah! You know!
      Like how they "press" people
      on those old cop shows, sir!
    
    Phoenix:
      So I should try "pressing"
      him, huh?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Byrde:
      Yes!
      Bluffing to the max!
    
    Byrde:
      Now, THIS is the Mr. Wright
      I know!
    
    Byrde:
      I'm so happy you're back, sir!
      I was wondering how long it'd
      take! This is great!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Hmm, pressing people...
      It feels like I've done
      this before.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (As if I used to do this to
      squeeze information from even
      the most tight-lipped people.)
    
    Judge:
      Very well.
    
    Judge:
      If you are that convinced,
      then let's hear some more
      about this matter.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Actually, I brought the glove
      with me today.
    
    Phoenix:
      And?
    
    Judge:
      Why didn't you say so earlier?
      Hurry and show the glove to
      this court!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Well, I didn't think it had
      anything to do with this
      case...
    
    Gumshoe:
      Anyway, this is it, sir.
    
    Judge:
      It's, uh... rather yellow,
      isn't it?
    
    *Baseball Glove added to the
     Court Record.*
    
    Gumshoe:
      Officer Prince really liked
      the color yellow.
    
    Phoenix:
      And that's why you had to
      special order it?
    
    Byrde:
      Yup, that's right!
      That, and one other reason...
    
    Judge:
      I think this court has heard
      enough.
    
    Judge:
      It is clear that the victim
      and the defendant were
      involved with each other.
    
    Payne:
      Yes, that's correct, Your
      Honor.
    
    Judge:
      Now, if that is true, it
      brings up an important
      question.
    
    Judge:
      Was the name "Maggie" really
      written by the victim?
    
    Payne:
      I see your point, Your Honor.
    
    Payne:
      Detective Gumshoe, please
      tell the court a little more
      about the name on the ground.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Yes, sir.

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- Writing on the Ground --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      We first looked into the
      handwriting, sir.
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      Unfortunately, we couldn't
      confirm that it was the
      victim's handwriting.
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      Next, we checked the victim's
      pointer finger.
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      We found that there was sand
      trapped under the victim's
      fingernail.
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      There were also scratches on
      the skin that were caused
      by him writing on the ground.
    
    (6)
    Gumshoe:
      From this, we could confirm
      that the victim wrote this
      name with his right hand.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm... Yes, a perfectly
      logical conclusion.
    
    Judge:
      Now then, Mr. Wright, you may
      cross-examine the witness.
    
    Phoenix:
      Thank you, Your Honor.

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- Writing on the Ground --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      We first looked into the
      handwriting.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           But can you really determine
           handwriting based on a sample
           written in sand?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Heh, this is why amateurs
           are amateurs.
    
         Gumshoe:
           We're not a buncha simpletons,
           pal!
    
         Gumshoe:
           Scientific investigation in
           this country's actually pretty
           good.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm, I believe it's time to
           get back to the real point.
    
         Payne:
           Agreed, Your Honor.
           So, what was the result of the
           investigation?
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      Unfortunately, we couldn't
      confirm that it was the
      victim's handwriting.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           So in the end, you couldn't
           confirm it?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Hey, don't you look down on
           us!
    
         Gumshoe:
           I told you! We're not a bunch
           of simpletons, pal!
    
         Gumshoe:
           Everyone knows you can't find
           out everything you want with
           scientific investigation!
    
         Judge:
           I've never heard that before.
    
         Payne:
           Me, either.
    
         Phoenix:
           Nor I.
    
         Byrde:
           I never heard anything like
           that at the police academy,
           sir...
    
         Gumshoe:
           OK, so I made it up.
           Anyway...
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      Next, we checked the victim's
      pointer finger.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           His pointer finger?
    
         Gumshoe:
           You know, the one you're
           always POINTING and waving
           around in people's faces.
    
         Phoenix:
           Aha, ha, ha.
           Don't tell me it bothers
           you...
    
         Gumshoe:
           Every time you do it, I have a
           mini-heart attack. It's like
           you're trying to kill me, pal.
    
         Payne:
           In any case, you examined
           the victim's index finger,
           correct?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yeah. We figured there should
           be something on his finger if
           he had been writing in sand.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm... And the results?
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      We found that there was sand
      trapped under the victim's
      fingernail.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           And what does that prove?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Well, it proves that he did
           write that name with his
           own finger.
    
         Payne:
           Yes, which explains why there
           was sand stuck under his nail.
    
         Phoenix:
           (I guess he's right...)
    
         Gumshoe:
           And there's more...
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      There were also scratches on
      the skin that were caused
      by him writing on the ground.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           "Scratches on his skin?"
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yup. You can't see them with
           your naked eye, but they're
           there.
    
         Judge:
           That is incredible!
    
         Gumshoe:
           Sure is! That's the power
           of scientific investigation!
    
         Gumshoe:
           They're so small that we had
           to use a magnifying glass...
           like a really strong one.
    
         Gumshoe:
           It's got that really
           scientific-sounding
           name...
    
         Phoenix:
           You mean a microscope?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yeah, that's it!
           We used one of those and
           that's how we found them!
    
         Phoenix:
           (I can't believe this guy
           doesn't know what a
           microscope is...)
    
    (6)
    Gumshoe:
      From this, we could confirm
      that the victim wrote this
      name with his right hand.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Are you absolutely sure?
    
         Gumshoe:
           I believe in the power of
           science.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Hmm, I wonder if my evidence
           is solid enough to counter
           with?)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (Listening to this, you would
      think there was only one
      conclusion...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (that the name was definitely
      written by the victim...)
    
    Byrde:
      But don't you think that
      would be really strange, sir!?
    
    Byrde:
      If Dustin really wrote that
      message with his right hand,
    
    Byrde:
      do you think I would have gone
      through that much trouble to
      get him his present?
    
    Phoenix:
      (The present...?
      What about it...?)

    *Present Baseball Glove* at (6)
    
    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      Detective Gumshoe.
      Take a look at this.
    
    Gumshoe:
      That's the glove, right?
    
    Phoenix:
      Could you tell the court
      what is special about this
      glove?
    
    Gumshoe:
      What's special? Um, never
      really thought about it, but
      uh...
    
    Gumshoe:
      It's REALLY yellow...
      ...
      And that's about it.
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes, it's REALLY yellow, but
      that is only one of its
      qualities.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Huh?
    
    Phoenix:
      There's another reason why
      it's special.
    
    Judge:
      And what would that be?
    
    Phoenix:
      It's very simple.
    
    Phoenix:
      This glove is made for a
      left-handed person!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Left-handed...?
    
    Judge:
      Why, you're absolutely right!
    
    Judge:
      This glove is made to be worn
      on the right hand!
    
    Phoenix:
      That is why it had to be
      custom-made.
    
    Phoenix:
      I have never seen a bright
      yellow left-hander's glove
      for sale. Have you?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Well, um... no.
    
    Phoenix:
      So, Detective.
    
    Phoenix:
      Which hand did the victim
      use to write the name with,
      again...?
    
    Gumshoe:
      That's easy!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Look, it's obvious from this
      picture that it was his...
      W-W-Wait a sec...
    
    Phoenix:
      Don't forget that the victim
      was left-handed!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Aaaaah!!
    
    Payne:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Payne:
      This is... This is...
      I mean... I...
      Objec--
    
    Judge:
      Overruled.
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Wright, I would like to
      know what your line of
      reasoning proves.
    
    Phoenix:
      There is only one conclusion
      that can be drawn!
    
    Phoenix:
      A left-handed person could
      not have written a message
      with his right hand!
    
    Phoenix:
      Therefore!
    
    Phoenix:
      The person who wrote the
      name "Maggie" could not
      have been the victim!
    
    Judge:
      Order! Order!
    
    Judge:
      When you think about it that
      way, then yes,
    
    Judge:
      it is not possible that this
      name was written by the
      victim himself.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Then that means Maggey is...!
    
    Payne:
      No... IT'S NOT POSSIBLE!!
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Payne.
    
    Payne:
      Y-Y-Yes, Your Honor?
    
    Judge:
      The evidence the prosecution
      has presented has failed to
      prove the defendant's guilt.
    
    Judge:
      In fact, I believe you have
      proven her to be innocent!
    
    Payne:
      NOOOOOOO!
    
    Byrde:
      Alright!
      You did it, Mr. Wright!
    
    Byrde:
      Whew! I feel like I can
      breathe again!
    
    Judge:
      It seems that we have reached
      the conclusion.
    
    Judge:
      You did a fine job once again,
      Mr. Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      Me, Your Honor?
      Ah, well, thank you, sir...
    
    Byrde:
      See, you got complimented
      by the judge again!
      You're really good!
    
    Byrde:
      And that's why you can't give
      up being a lawyer, sir!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Are you joking!? I'm more
      than ready to retire!)
    
    Judge:
      I will now announce my
      verdict.
    
    Judge:
      This court finds the
      defendant, Maggey Byrde...
    
    Payne:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Payne:
      No!! Not yet!
    
    Payne:
      I mean, please give me a few
      more minutes, Your Honor.
    
    Judge:
      Wh-What is the meaning of
      this, Mr. Payne!?
    
    Payne:
      The prosecution is not
      finished yet!
    
    Phoenix:
      What do you mean!?
    
    Payne:
      We would like to call our next
      witness to the stand!
    
    Phoenix:
      Whaaaaaaaaaat!?
    
    Judge:
      And what did this witness...
      witness?
    
    Payne:
      The moment the victim was
      pushed to his death!
    
    Payne:
      What's more, he saw the very
      face of the culprit!
    
    Phoenix:
      What the heck!?
    
    Judge:
      Order! Order in the court!
    
    Judge:
      I believe a recess is in
      order.
    
    Judge:
      Afterward, we will hear from
      this new witness.
    
    Phoenix:
      (I had a feeling that was a
      bit too easy...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Hmm, I need more information.
      I'll have to see what I can
      find out during this recess.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (I can't let my guard down!
      It's only going to get tougher
      from here!)
    
    Judge:
      Court is adjourned for recess!
    
    
                                                 To be continued.

      A-Amnesia!?
    
    Byrde:
      I can't believe my lawyer's
      trying to defend me in such
      a state...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
      I... Uh...
    
    Byrde:
      Why didn't you tell me, sir!?
    
    Phoenix:
      I'm sorry I didn't mention
      it to you.
    
    Byrde:
      Oh! I know what to do!
    
    Byrde:
      I heard you can fix something
      like this with a really strong
      shock to your system!
    
    Byrde:
      Come on, lower your head a
      little! A Maggey Kick should
      be all you need!
    
    Phoenix:
      Ah, no, no, no.
      I think I'll pass on this one.
    
    Byrde:
      Come on!...
      Ah, I'm sorry.
    
    Byrde:
      Whenever I see someone in
      trouble, I have a hard time
      leaving them alone...
    
    Byrde:
      I tend to stick my nose where
      it doesn't belong and try to
      tackle everyone's problems.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Well, my head's one problem
      you won't be tackling
      today...)
    
    Phoenix:
      Well, we're here to solve your
      problem first.
      We can deal with mine later.
    
    Phoenix:
      For now, do you think you can
      fill me in on a few things?
    
    Byrde:
      Of course! I'd be honored to!
    
    Byrde:
      Ah, well, I guess we'll start
      with my name and then I can
      tell you about me!
    
    Phoenix:
      No, no, that's ok. Really.
      I think I know you and your
      name pretty well by now.
    
    Phoenix:
      I was wondering if you could
      help me figure out a few
      things about myself.
    
    Phoenix:
      So, my name is
      "Phoenix Wright"?
      What a weird name.
    
    Byrde:
      Hmmmm... This is serious.
      You really don't remember.
    
    Byrde:
      I'll tell you what, sir.
      You can have this back,
      and maybe it'll help!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...?
      This is...
      a business card?
    
    Byrde:
      I got this from you.
      It's my most prized
      possession!
    
    Byrde:
      You can borrow it for now,
      but please give it back, OK!?
    
    Phoenix:
      OK.
      (There are some numbers
      written on the back...)
    
    Byrde:
      Oh, that's your cell phone
      number!
    
    *Phoenix's Business Card
    added to the Court Record.*
    
    Phoenix:
      I guess for now, we should
      stop talking about me,
    
    Phoenix:
      and start talking about this
      case.
    
    Byrde:
      This case...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yup. Can you think of anything
      that would be helpful for me
      to know?
    
    Byrde:
      Um, what can I tell you...?
      Ah, um... Hmm...
    
    Byrde:
      I can't think of anything
      other than the incident
      with that cell phone, but...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Cell phone?
    
    Byrde:
      Yeah! Your eyes lit up when
      we talked about it at the
      Detention Center, sir!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...!
    
    Phoenix:
      Hurry up then and tell me!
      This might be very important!
    
    Byrde:
      OK! Roger!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Byrde:
      It was on the day of the
      crime, just before 6 PM...
    
    Byrde:
      I picked up a lost cell phone
      while on a walk with Dustin.
    
    Phone:
      ...............
    
    Byrde:
      All of a sudden, the phone
      began to ring...
    
    Phone:
      ...*beep*...
    
    Byrde:
      "Um, hello?"
    
    ? ? ?:
      "Oh, thank you! I've been
      searching for my phone."
    
    Byrde:
      "Is this yours? Oh, I'm glad
      you called! We can meet up
      and I can give this back!"
    
    ? ? ?:
      "I'll be right there, um...
      I'm sorry, I didn't catch your
      name..."
    
    Byrde:
      "You can call me Maggey!"
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Byrde:
      We agreed to meet up at 6 PM.
    
    Byrde:
      Dustin and I waited for the
      person to show up...
    
    Byrde:
      but they never did.
    
    Phoenix:
      Hmmmm...
    
    Phoenix:
      So where is the phone you
      found now?
    
    Byrde:
      I gave it to you yesterday!
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh? To me?
      (Is it that phone in my
      pocket...?)
    
    Phoenix:
      Y-You mean this?
    
    Byrde:
      Do you think it has anything
      to do with the murder?
    
    Phoenix:
      I... don't really know...
      But if my eyes "lit up"...
    
    ? ? ?:
      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!
      YOU WERE HERE ALL ALONG!!
    
    ? ? ?:
      You're so mean!!
    
    ? ? ?:
      I called you a million times
      but you wouldn't pick up!
    
    ? ? ?:
      And when I went to check in
      the courtroom, everyone had
      already left...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Ack!
      Now who in the heck is this?)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Let me guess. I'm supposed to
      know this girl too...)
    
    ? ? ?:
      Hey, good morning, Maggey!
    
    Byrde:
      And a good morning to you,
      too, Maya!
    
    Maya:
      So!? So!?
      How's it going!?
    
    Byrde:
      Is there a word for
      "worse than abysmal"...?
    
    Maya:
      Oh?
      And what if I said that
      everything will be fine?
    
    Maya:
      That's right! It's Maya to the
      rescue with the ultra-decisive
      super-important evidence!
    
    Maya:
      Here you are, Nick!
      The thing you wanted me to
      bring!
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh? Oh, ah, thanks...
      (What the heck is this?
      A list?)
    
    Phoenix:
      (It has about 20 people's
      names and phone numbers
      written on it.)
    
    Maya:
      It was kind of tough, but I
      managed to find out some dirt!
    
    Maya:
      It looks like these guys are
      up to no good.
    
    Phoenix:
      "No good"?
      As in?
    
    Maya:
      There's a group of con artists
      the police are currently
      investigating.
    
    Maya:
      I think these guys are members
      of that group.
    
    *Names List added to
    the Court Record.*
    
    Phoenix:
      Why would a group of con
      artists pop up in a case
      like this?
    
    Maya:
      Don't look at me!
    
    Phoenix:
      Hmm...
      And where did you get this
      list from in the first place?
    
    Maya:
      Whaaaaat!?
      Why are you asking that!?
    
    Maya:
      You're the one who asked
      me to look this up yesterday!
    
    Phoenix:
      Oh... is that right?
    
    Maya:
      These numbers were in the
      memory of that phone Maggey
      found.
    
    Phoenix:
      Hmm, so that's where they're
      from.
    
    Maya:
      You're awfully forgetful these
      days, Nick.
    
    Maya:
      I hope I never get to be a
      forgetful old prune like you!
    
    Byrde:
      Um, Maya...
      Actually, Mr. Wright is...
    
    Bailiff:
      Mr. Wright!
      Recess is now over.
    
    Bailiff:
      Please bring the defendant
      and return to the courtroom
      immediately!
    
    Maya:
      Oh, oops! Guess you have to
      get going! We can talk about
      you being old later, Nick!
    
    Byrde:
      W-Wish us luck!
    
    Phoenix:
      (I guess I have all the pieces
      now... More or less.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (All that's left is to put it
      all together. I'm not going
      to lose this. I can't!)
    
    Maya:
      Come on, Nick.
      Better get a move on!
    
    Phoenix:
      Y-Yeah.

    September 8, 11:54 AM
    District Court
    Courtroom No. 2
    
    Judge:
      The court will now reconvene.
      Please call your next witness
      to the stand, Mr. Payne.
    
    Payne:
      Yes, Your Honor.
    
    Payne:
      But before I do, if I may say
      a few words...
    
    Judge:
      What is it, Mr. Payne?
    
    Payne:
      It's about the next witness.
    
    Payne:
      He has a tendency to say
      things that rub people the
      wrong way, you see,
    
    Payne:
      so I ask that the court might
      be a little lenient on...
    
    Judge:
      There is no need to give a
      preface. Just hurry up and
      call your witness, please.
    
    Payne:
      Y-Yes, Your Honor.
      ...The prosecution calls its
      next witness;
    
    Payne:
      a drifter who was taking a
      walk in the park on the day
      of the murder!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Payne:
      Please state your name for
      the court, witness.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Before I do, I'd like to
      clarify a little something.
    
    Payne:
      Huh? Oh, alright, go ahead.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Just now, you introduced my
      wonderful self to the court,
      correct?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Perhaps as a "drifter who was
      taking a walk"?
    
    Payne:
      D-Did I?
    
    ? ? ?:
      But I will not stand for that!
      Now you've tinted the court's
      eyes and colored me wrongly.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Sure, I suppose calling me
      a university student would
      not be the absolute truth,
    
    ? ? ?:
      but to give in and just settle
      would be as evil as death
      and I can't have that!
    
    ? ? ?:
      Everything in my life is to be
      of the utmost, highest, top
      grade quality, you understand.
    
    ? ? ?:
      I am merely looking for that
      perfect, top notch, unbeatable
      university, don't you see...?
    
    ? ? ?:
      I have a rigorous selection
      process and I was in serious
      thought during my "walk" as...
    
    Payne:
      Yes, yes, I understand.
      I'm very sorry. I will be
      more careful from now on.
    
    Maya:
      Wh-What is he?
      A human chatterbox?
    
    Phoenix:
      Ugh... I have to question HIM?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Fashion! Cars! Women! Glasses!
      And of course, University!
      First-rates only need apply!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Glasses...? But you aren't
      wearing glasses...)
    
    Judge:
      That's enough!
      Your name, witness.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Oh? Is that how you want to
      play this?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Using your power and influence
      to keep the young people down.
      I see how you work now.
    
    ? ? ?:
      You old people and your dirty
      tricks. You thought you had
      me, but you thought wrong.
    
    Judge:
      I-I'm sorry.
      It won't happen again.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Oh man...)
    
    ? ? ?:
      I forgive you.
      Alright, I suppose I
      can tell you my name.
    
    Wellington:
      I am Richard Wellington, the
      "Drifting Virtuoso" with a
      Ph.D. in Drifting, as it were.
    
    Wellington:
      If you wanted to, you could
      call me a "University Student
      in Transit".
    
    Payne:
      Ahem, Mr. Wellington.
    
    Payne:
      On the day of the murder, you
      were taking a... er, strolling
      through the park, correct?
    
    Wellington:
      It would appear that you are
      attached to that word. If you
      must, then by all means.
    
    Wellington:
      But I remind you that I am in
      no way a prepubescent boy,
      "out on a walk" with mommy.
    
    Wellington:
      If you must know, I
    
    Payne:
      Anyway! Please testify to this
      court what you saw during your
      walk through the park!
    
    Wellington:
      See, you said it again!
      "Taking a walk"...
      You know, you--
    
    Judge:
      What you witnessed will do,
      Mr. Wellington!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- What I Saw That Day --
    
    (1)
    Wellington:
      I was at the park all
      afternoon, deep in thought
      about my life situation.
    
    (2)
    Wellington:
      I don't remember the time all
      that well, but I do believe it
      was past 6 PM.
    
    (3)
    Wellington:
      All of a sudden, a police
      officer falls from above,
      right in front of my eyes.
    
    (4)
    Wellington:
      Without a thought, I looked
      up, and there I met the eyes
      of a charming, young lady.
    
    (5)
    Wellington:
      Of course I remember her
      sweet face. It was that of
      the pretty defendant there.
    
    (6)
    Wellington:
      The only other thing I saw was
      the banana that fell with the
      police officer.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm, that was certainly
      a decisive testimony.
    
    Maya:
      Decisive!? Nick, did you hear
      what he just said!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah.
    
    Maya:
      That's all you have to say?
      How can you be so calm!?
    
    Phoenix:
      (It's strange... My mind is
      very calm and clear.)
    
    Phoenix:
      Maybe it's because I...
      believe in my client.
    
    Maya:
      You mean Maggey?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes. And if she really is
      innocent, then that can only
      mean one thing:
    
    Phoenix:
      That guy is lying!
    
    Judge:
      You may now question the
      witness, Mr. Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      (I'll find out the truth, no
      matter how well you craft
      your lies!)

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- What I Saw That Day --
    
    (1)
    Wellington:
      I was at the park all
      afternoon, deep in thought
      about my life situation.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           So you were at the park all
           afternoon? You seem to have
           a lot of free time.
    
         Wellington:
           Hmph. That was very rude of
           you. But then again, what can
           I expect?
    
         Wellington:
           That's what you get from a
           man who graduated from a
           no-name, trashy university.
    
         Phoenix:
           N-No name?
           Trashy...?
    
         Wellington:
           Now, this might be hard for a
           mush-headed, feeble-minded
           baboon like you, but
    
         Wellington:
           I have to think very carefully
           about the future of our great
           country.
    
         Phoenix:
           But I thought you said you
           were thinking about which
           college to go to just now...
    
         Wellington:
           Oh, puh-leaze.
    
         Wellington:
           Which university I go to
           will directly affect the
           very future of this country!
    
         Phoenix:
           (That arrogant little snot...)
    
    (2)
    Wellington:
      I don't remember the time all
      that well, but I do believe it
      was past 6 PM.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           How did you know what time
           it was? I see you're not
           wearing a watch, so...
    
         Wellington:
           Is that the best you can do?
           Do you think you can discredit
           me like that?
    
         Wellington:
           You're just a third-rate,
           biased fool. I guess I can't
           expect real smarts from you.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Grr... His arrogance is
           really intolerable...
           So, what should I do now...?)

         * Phoenix:
         *   Answer the question! How did
         *   you know what time it was!?
         *
         * Wellington:

         *   I can't believe I have to

         *   who can only slam on desks
         *   and point at people for fun.
         *

         *
         * Wellington:

         *   like you can understand.
         *
         * Wellington:
         *   There was this little thing
         *   they call a "clock" at the
         *   park.
         *
         * Wellington:
         *   Did you get that? Do you know
         *   what a clock is? It's a thing
         *   that tells you the time.
         *
         * Payne:
         *   As you can see, Mr. Wright,
         *   it's even in this picture of
         *   the crime scene.
         * 
         * Phoenix:
         *   (Oh... So it is... Urk.)
         *
         * Wellington:
         *   I looked at that clock, and
         *   that's how I knew the time.
         *
         * Wellington:

         *   concept of breaking time apart
         *   into fragments...

         *   A real first-class person

         *   chained by, time.
         *
         * Wellington:
         *   And to wear a watch? Hah!
         *   What a ridiculous notion!
         *
         * Wellington:
         *   People should live freely

         *   That's how life should be!

    (3)
    Wellington:
      All of a sudden, a police
      officer falls from above,
      right in front of my eyes.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           And how did you know he was
           a police officer?
    
         Wellington:
           You obviously have no idea
           how powerful my deductive
           reasoning skills are.
    
         Wellington:
           With one glance, I could tell
           just what kind of occupation
           he held.
    
         Wellington:
           That shoddy, do-it-yourself
           hairstyle practically screamed
           "I'm a police officer".
    
         Wellington:
           It was also the way he tied
           his tie and those cheap, low-
           quality shoes. Ugh.
    
         Wellington:
           Oh, and I suppose it was also
           because he was wearing an
           officer's uniform.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Shouldn't that statement have
           come first!?)
    
         Maya:
           Wow, that's pretty impressive.
    
         Maya:
           Hey, Nick! Do you think he's
           figured out what I do?
    
         Phoenix:
           (Even I haven't figured that
           out yet...)
    
    (4)
    Wellington:
      Without a thought, I looked
      up, and there I met the eyes
      of a charming, young lady.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Are you sure you got a good
           look at her face?
    
         Wellington:
           Animals have this thing called
           an "eye", Mr. Wright. They use
           this "eye" to see things.
    
         Wellington:
           In the case of humans, we
           have two of them.
           Yes, even you!
    
         Phoenix:
           I don't care if I have them or
           not! Did you or did you not
           get a clear look at her face!?
    
         Payne:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         Payne:
           That's what the witness was
           just about to get to.
    
         Payne:
           I would like to request that
           Mr. Wright not use such a
           loud voice during questioning.
    
         Judge:
           Sustained. Mr. Wright, please
           refrain from raising your
           voice in this court.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Then please don't make me
           have to raise my voice.)
    
         Wellington:
           Are you finished?
           I'd like to continue, if
           that's alright with you.
    
    (5)
    Wellington:
      Of course I remember her
      sweet face. It was that of
      the pretty defendant there.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           So you're SURE you are not
           mistaken?
    
         Wellington:
           Please. Don't confuse your
           pitiful, train-wreck of a life
           with mine.
    
         Wellington:
           I'm what you call a famous
           brand-name product, while you
           are only a cheap imitation.
    
         Wellington:
           There is no way someone as
           magnificent as myself could
           have made a mistake.
    
         Payne:
           Of course, of course.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Oh ho ho ho. Of course.)
    
         Judge:
           Did you notice anything else
           of interest, witness?
    
    (6)
    Wellington:
      The only other thing I saw was
      the banana that fell with the
      police officer.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           The banana...?
    
         Wellington:
           Well, it was actually more
           than just one. More like a
           bunch of bananas.
    
         Phoenix:
           Now what would a bunch of
           bananas be doing there...?
    
         Wellington:
           And why would I know such a
           thing? I'm only telling you
           what I saw.
    
         Maya:
           That's really strange.
    
         Maya:
           Maggey never mentioned
           anything about a bunch
           of bananas.
    
         Maya:
           That's it, Nick! He's gotta be
           lying about the bananas!
    
         Phoenix:
           (Hmm...
           He could be, but...)
    
         Phoenix:
           (there's no reason for him
           to lie about there being
           bananas at the crime scene.)
    
         Phoenix:
           And what if it's not a lie?
    
         Maya:
           Well, maybe he thought he was
           seeing one thing, and it was
           something else...?
    
         Phoenix:
           (If he mistook something else
           for a bunch of bananas, then
           that would be an inaccuracy.)
    
         Phoenix:
           (Think Phoenix, think!)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (If my client is innocent,
      there is no way he could've
      seen what he says he did.)
    
    Maya:
      Which means if we can somehow
      show he's lying...
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah, that's exactly what we
      need do.
    
    Phoenix:
      (She's right. She's got a
      sharp mind, but I just wish I
      could remember who she is...)
    
    Maya:
      Is everything OK, Nick...?

      I believe I have the bananas
      you saw... right here!
    
    Wellington:
      Ah, so you knew about the
      bananas, too. Why didn't you
      say so earlier?
    
    Wellington:
      But don't think you can use
      this as a way to pull more
      information out of me.

      Huh!? Wh-Wh-What!?

      Doesn't it look delicious?
      Care for a bite?

      You're like those people who

      You're too used to your world

      Sure, in the end, we find out

      not bananas. However...

      when viewed from afar, I do
      think there is room enough for
      doubt, don't you...?

      And that is why I asked you
      how bad your eyesight is!
    
    Wellington:
      They're both 20/200.
      I suppose you're going to tell
      me that's terrible, right!?

      Why are you not wearing
      your glasses today then?
    
    Wellington:
      ...
    
    Wellington:
      Ummm...
      That's because I lost them
      recently, you see...
    
    Wellington:
      Of course, I was planning
      on getting a new pair
      made right away!
    
    Wellington:
      But you know, my glasses
      are no ordinary glasses, so
      to replace them--
    
    Phoenix:
      How about when you witnessed
      the crime? Were you wearing
      your glasses then?
    
    Wellington:
      ...!
    
    Phoenix:
      How about it, witness!?
    
    Wellington:
      Y-You are an unrelenting,
      evil man.
    
    Wellington:
      You're like those people who
      rejected Joan of Arc and put
      her to death!
    
    Wellington:
      She was brave and courageous,
      only to be caught by horrible,
      unrighteous people.
    
    Wellington:
      And while she didn't do
      anything wrong, she was still
      gruesomely burned at the--
    
    Phoenix:
      Which boils down to you were
      not wearing your glasses
      at that time!

      Therefore!
    
    Phoenix:
      The identity of the "woman"
      at the scene of the crime
      and that of the defendant
    
    Phoenix:
      can not be proven to be the

      But the height difference
      was only 9 feet!
    
    Payne:
      It was very possible for him
      to see the face of the culprit
      standing on the upper path!
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...

    Judge:
      Please be more accurate in

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- What Happened Next --
    
    (1)
    Wellington:
      The girl on the upper path
      ran away as soon as she
      realized I was there.
    
    (2)
    Wellington:
      After that, I immediately
      called the police station to
      report the crime.
    
    (3)
    Wellington:
      It must've been 6:45 PM when
      I made the call.
    
    (4)
    Wellington:
      They must have a lot of free
      time on their hands since they
      showed up within 10 minutes.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
    
    Judge:
      So the person who was on the
      upper path saw you and then
      ran away.
    
    Wellington:
      Yes, that is correct.
    
    Wellington:
      Which is why, even someone
      without a superior brain like
      mine can understand that...
    
    Wellington:
      that girl is the murderer!
    
    Judge:
      You may question the witness
      now, Mr. Wright.

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- What Happened Next --
    
    (1)
    Wellington:
      The girl on the upper path
      ran away as soon as she
      realized I was there.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           She ran away, just like that?
    
         Wellington:
           Yes, she did. She saw me and
           flew the nest like the guilty
           bird she is.
    
         Wellington:
           Oh, I'm sorry. Was that pun
           too hard for someone who only
           got a third-rate education?
    
         Phoenix:
           (Actually, that did take me a
           few seconds to get...)
    
         Phoenix:
           Anyway, if she ran away the
           instant she saw you, how could
           you tell it was my client?
    
         Wellington:
           Eek!
    
         Payne:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         Payne:
           The witness has already
           answered that question.
    
         Payne:
           He has stated that the
           defendant is the culprit!
    
         Judge:
           This is true. Mr. Wright, I'm
           striking your question from
           the record.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Hmm, how can I get more
           information out of him?)
    
    (2)
    Wellington:
      After that, I immediately
      called the police station to
      report the crime.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Immediately? As in?
    
         Wellington:
           As in immediately! I mean,
           sure, a minute might have
           elapsed before I did, but...
    
         Wellington:
           That's the duty of every good
           citizen, or did they not teach
           that at your pitiful school?
    
         Phoenix:
           (You think people learn about
           how to call the police in
           COLLEGE!?)
    
         Maya:
           Hey, Nick. I think you should
           take a look at the Court
           Record for a sec.
    
         Phoenix:
           (...?)
    
    (3)
    Wellington:
      It must've been 6:45 PM when
      I made the call.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           How do you know what time
           it was...?
    
         Wellington:
           That detective told me.
           You know which one I mean.
    
         Wellington:
           The one with the jacket that
           makes him look like a dropout
           from a no-name high school.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Hey, pal! I graduated from
           a pretty good, I mean,
           top-ranked college!
    
         Phoenix:
           (I don't believe this.)
    
         Wellington:
           It doesn't matter.
           I don't believe I was mistaken
           on what time I called.
    
         Wellington:
           And if I am wrong, then that
           detective obviously doesn't
           know how to tell time.
    
         Gumshoe:
           What!?
           Why you!!! You're just
           some lousy kid who...
    
         Payne:
           I think the court can see
           your point. Anyway, how
           did the police respond?
    
    (4)
    Wellington:
      They must have a lot of free
      time on their hands since they
      showed up within 10 minutes.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           So you're saying that there
           were police on the scene by
           7:00 PM?
    
         Wellington:
           They got there before that,
           I think.
    
         Wellington:
           There usually aren't many
           people in that area at that
           time of day.
    
         Wellington:
           But suddenly, before I knew
           it, there were people crawling
           all over gawking.
    
         Wellington:
           It certainly says something
           about the morals of the
           people in this country.

      the ordinary in his

      Mr. Wellington, would you
      please take a look at this?
    
    Judge:
      You mean the victim's
      autopsy report?
    
    Phoenix:
      According to this, the murder
      occurred at 6:28 PM.
    
    Wellington:
      So what of it?
    
    Phoenix:
      You said that you called the
      police immediately after the
      murder took place.
    
    Phoenix:
      However, by the time you had
      called the police, it was
      already 6:45 PM.
    
    Phoenix:
      There is clearly a 15 minute
      gap here! Do you deny it!?
    
    Wellington:
      Aaaack!
    
    Phoenix:
      I think this court would like
      to hear what you were doing
      during this 15 minute gap!
    
    Wellington:
      Grrrrrr!
    
    Payne:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Payne:
      The witness was in shock at
      the time after witnessing a
      terrible murder!
    
    Payne:
      It's only to be expected that
      he would be a little dazed...
    
    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      Fifteen minutes is hardly what
      I would call "a little dazed"!

    Judge:
      Mr. Wellington.
    
    Wellington:
      Y-Yes?

      Explain yourself. What were
      you doing during those 15
      minutes?

      Err... I mean...
    
    Phoenix:
      Spit it out!
    
    Wellington:
      I... I was searching for a
      phone booth!
    
    Phoenix:
      A phone booth?
    
    Judge:
      You mean, you don't have a
      cell phone?
    
    Wellington:
      ...!
    
    Wellington:
      You and your questions! As if
      you're trying to open all the
      layers of a Matryoshka doll.
    
    Wellington:
      You must think you're really
      something special!
    
    Phoenix:
      Witness!
    
    Wellington:
      I-I lost my cell phone!
      There! Are you happy!?
    
    Phoenix:
      You lost it...?
    
    Judge:
      Unbelievable! You lose your
      glasses, and your cell phone!
    
    Judge:
      You must be very
      scatterbrained when it
      comes to your belongings.
    
    Wellington:
      What!? Are you saying that
      first-rate people are never
      allowed to lose things!?
    
    Wellington:
      Haven't you ever heard that
      all geniuses have a strange
      quirk or two?
    
    Wellington:
      So by that rationale, since I
      have my own quirk, it would
      mean that I am a genius
    
    Wellington:
      I don't think simple, plain
      people like you can underst--

      He lost... his cell phone?)

      Could it be...?

      You mean this phone Maggey
      found? There's no way...!

    Wellington:
      Heh, what are you getting all
      excited about? You seem to
      be a little confused.
    
    Wellington:
      I found my phone, I'll have

      See. Here is it.
    
    Phoenix:
      Oh... I see...
    
    Maya:
      Hmm, looks like he's got his
      phone.
    
    Maya:
      And I thought that just maybe
      this was his.
    
    Phoenix:
      Hmm...
    
    Judge:
      Well then, I think we've
      cleared this issue up.
    
    Judge:
      At the time of the murder, the
      witness did not have his cell
      phone because he had lost it.
    
    Judge:
      Therefore, the delay in his
      call was caused by his search
      for a phone booth.
    
    Wellington:
      Well, that's the gist of it.
      I guess you could put it
      that way and leave it at that.
    
    Judge:
      Do you have any further
      questions, Mr. Wright?

    Phoenix:
      But Maggey said that she

    Phoenix:
      So there was no reason for him

      U-Under the v-victim's
      body!?
    
    Judge:
      Order! Order!
    
    Wellington:
      N-Now, w-wait a second!
      Hold on!
    
    Wellington:
      I-I didn't confess or confirm
      a-any-anything!
    
    Phoenix:
      Your Honor! I think the answer
      is quite clear here!
    
    Phoenix:
      As he fell, Dustin Prince
      grabbed the culprit's glasses.
    
    Phoenix:
      The culprit knew that he had
      to find his glasses, and
      searched frantically for them.
    
    Phoenix:
      What he didn't realize was
      that they were under the
      victim's body!
    
    Phoenix:
      And that is why it took him
      15 minutes to make that call!
    
    Judge:
      M-Mr. Wright!
      Are you...?
    
    Judge:
      Are you indicting the witness
      as the real murderer!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Of course! That is precisely
      what I am doing!
    
    Wellington:
      Oooo...OOOOWAAAAAAAAAA
      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
    
    Phoenix:
      (I know I'm right!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (He is the real murderer!)
    
    Maya:
      Did you figure it out, Nick!?
    
    Phoenix:
      More or less.
    
    Phoenix:
      Turns out this cell phone
      was the key to this case
      after all.
    
    Phoenix:
      Anyway, now is our chance to
      deep-six this guy.
    
    Phoenix:
      I'll sink him in one shot!
    
    Maya:
      Yeah!
    
    Maya:
      This is so exciting, watching
      you work again!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Somehow, my old self is
      coming back to me.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (It's time to sink or swim;
      everything rests on the edge
      of a knife!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (This is the moment I've been
      waiting for...)

    Payne:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Payne:
      Your Honor! The defense...
      The defense is making a
      mockery of this court!
    
    Payne:
      Without any solid ground to
      stand on, he accuses the
      witness of being the murderer!
    
    Wellington:
      Y-Y-Yeah!
      That-That's right!
    
    Wellington:
      I... I'm no criminal!
    
    Wellington:
      Th-This third-rate, fraud of a
      lawyer...
    
    Phoenix:
      In that case, why don't we
      look at it from a different
      perspective.
    
    Phoenix:
      Let's hear your explanation as
      to why you are NOT the
      murderer!
    
    Wellington:
      Why, that's... That's easy...
      Um...
      Uh...
    
    Wellington:
      For example... There's um...
      The name the victim wrote!
      What about that...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Oh, you mean the name
      "Maggie"?
    
    Wellington:
      Y-Yeah! Even an idiot like
      you can read that, right?
    
    Phoenix:
      But we already know this was
      not written by the victim
      himself.
    
    Phoenix:
      After all, the defendant's
      name is "Maggey" and the
      victim was left-handed.
    
    Judge:
      So basically, you are saying
      that in order to make the
      defendant look guilty,
    
    Judge:
      the real criminal used the
      victim's right hand to write
      her name on the ground?
    
    Wellington:
      B-But...
      But, but!!
    
    Wellington:
      Wouldn't that mean that the
      real criminal was someone
      the defendant knew?
    
    Wellington:
      Otherwise, how else would
      that person know her name
      was "Maggie", er "Maggey"!?
    
    Judge:
      That is a good point.
    
    Judge:
      The witness didn't even
      know of Ms. Byrde before
      this trial.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Ah, I forgot!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Hmm, was there any way
      this creep could've known
      Maggey's name beforehand?)

      Mr. Wellington.
    
    Phoenix:
      You didn't have your cell
      phone with you on the day of
      the murder, correct?
    
    Wellington:
      So what if I didn't?
    
    Phoenix:
      When you realized you had
      lost it, what did you do?

    Judge:
      Mr. Wright, where are you
      going with this line of
      questioning?
    
    Judge:
      Do you think there is some
      relation between this witness'
      cell phone and the murder?
    
    Phoenix:
      I do, Your Honor.
    
    Phoenix:
      On the day of the murder,
      Maggey Byrde picked up
      a lost phone in the park.
    
    Phoenix:
      And!
    
    Phoenix:
      She also received a phone call
      from the owner of the phone!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phone:
      ...............
    
    Phone:
      ...*beep*...
    
    Byrde:
      "Um, hello?"
    
    ? ? ?:
      "Oh, thank you! I've been
      searching for my phone."
    
    Byrde:

      you called! We can meet up
      and I can give this back!"

      "I'll be right there, um...
      I'm sorry, I didn't catch your
      name..."
    
    Byrde:
      "You can call me Maggey!"
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      That was when you learned
      that her name was "Maggey"!
    
    Wellington:
      Uh, um, nnngh...
    
    Phoenix:
      But you made one fatal
      mistake.
    
    Judge:
      Fatal mistake?
    
    Phoenix:
      My client's name is "Maggey"
      but the name that was written
      on the ground was "Maggie".
    
    Phoenix:
      This is a mistake that could
      only occur if all you knew was
      how her name sounded!

    Judge:
      And your point is?
    
    Payne:
      It's very simple, Your Honor.
      A person usually would not
      kill someone without a reason.
    
    Payne:
      Mr. Wellington had no reason
      to kill anyone!
    
    Wellington:
      That is absolutely correct!
      I don't have a motive!
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
      Mr. Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      Your Honor?
    
    Judge:
      Can you explain what motive
      this witness could have had?
    
    Phoenix:

      Are you sure, Nick!?
    
    Phoenix:
      If I said I can't offer an
      explanation, then the
      trial's over, right?
    
    Maya:
      Yeah, but...

    Phoenix:
      Hmm, well...
    
    Phoenix:
      I don't think Mr. Wellington
      went to pick up his phone
      in a very friendly manner.
    
    Payne:
      But he was promised his phone,
      so why would he have been
      unfriendly to the defendant?
    
    Phoenix:
      I think he must have seen
      something that didn't agree
      with him when he got there.
    
    Judge:
      Well, then Mr. Wright...
    
    Judge:
      What was this "something" that
      didn't agree with the witness?

    *Present Dustin Prince profile*
    
    Phoenix:
      *TAKE THAT!*
    
    Phoenix:
      What Mr. Wellington saw
      was... the victim.
    
    Payne:
      T-The...
      The victim!?
      You mean Dustin Prince!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Dustin Prince had gone on
      his date right after his shift
      was over.
    
    Phoenix:
      With no time to change, he
      went to the park still wearing
      his police uniform!
    
    Judge:
      Oh!
    
      "The girl that picked up my
      phone is with a policeman!"
    
    Phoenix:
      He couldn't have known they
      were going out so he began
      to worry.
    
    Phoenix:
      He was afraid the policeman
      would ask a few questions
      before returning the phone.
    
      "If I do anything suspicious,
      he might run a check on my
      phone..."
    
    Phoenix:
      In his mind, it was possible
      they had already run a
      check on the phone!
    
    Judge:
      And he went into a panic, is
      what you're saying?
    
    Phoenix:
      Exactly.
    
    Phoenix:
      Officer Prince was murdered
      simply because he was in
      uniform!
    
    Payne:
      Mr. Payne.
      Do you have any comments?
    
    Payne:
      I, um... I'm thinking...
    
    Judge:
      Hmm, it seems the truth
      has come out at last.
    
    Judge:

      third-rate education...
    
    Phoenix:

      mean!?

      The evidence... Evidence!
    
    Maya:
      Uuugh! That guy is really
      creeping me out--
    
    Wellington:
      All you've been waving around
      and talking about is that
      "suspicious" cell phone.
    
    Wellington:
      Suspicious phone number this,
      suspicious con group that!
      They're all on that phone!
    
    Wellington:
      But who's to say that phone
      is really mine!? Where's your
      proof!? Your evidence!?
    
    Phoenix:
      You want proof that this
      phone is yours?
    
    Wellington:
      Ahahahaha!
      Ahehehehehe!
      I already told you earlier!
    
    Wellington:
      That phone I lost -- I've
      already found it!
    
    Wellington:
      You don't have even the
      slightest idea who the phone
      in your hand belongs to!
    
    Wellington:
      You can be sure it isn't mine,
      you simpleton!
    
    Phoenix:
      WHAT!?
    
    Wellington:
      Hehehehe... Heh... Hehehehe...
      It feels good to see you
      squirm.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm... We do seem to have
      a problem on our hands with
      this phone.
    
    Judge:
      Whose phone is it? Without
      knowing that, it's meaningless
      as evidence.
    
    Phoenix:
      Your Honor!
    
    Phoenix:
      (This is bad... I can't let
      him turn the tables on me
      like this!!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Hmm... This cell phone...)

      to be! Hmm... Maybe...)

    Wellington:
      Y-Your...
    
    Wellington:
      AAAAAAAAAAAH!
      No, no, no, no, no!
      It can't...!!
    
    Phoenix:
      By the way, before I forget,
      thank you very much for the
      lump on my head this morning.
    
    Wellington:
      Nnnnngh...
    
    Phoenix:
      I don't think I need to
      explain any further,
      except to say:
    
    Phoenix:
      When you went to retrieve your
      cell phone, you mistakenly
      took the wrong one!
    
    Wellington:
      ...Mmgh...
    
    Wellington:
      Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
      aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
      aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    
    Wellington:
      aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
      aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
      aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    
    Wellington:
      aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAA
      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    
    Wellington:
      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
      AAAAAaaaaaaaagggggggghhhnn!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      So that is what happened.
      You were knocked out by
      Mr. Wellington...
    
    Phoenix:
      He is a man who lives on
      his pride and self-image
      alone.
    
    Phoenix:
      And in order to hide his
      involvement with the
      con artists' group,
    
    Phoenix:
      he has become paranoid, and
      has lost all ability to make
      rational judgments.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
    
    Payne:
      Then... Then, Mr. Wright...
      The phone you're holding...
    
    Phoenix:
      It's Mr. Wellington's,
      naturally.
    
    Judge:
      Speaking of that man, how is
      he, Mr. Payne?
    
    Payne:
      Ah, he was arrested and
      has been taken away, Your
      Honor.
    
    Judge:
      Very well.
    
    Judge:
      Now then, this court finds the
      defendant, Maggey Byrde...
    
    * N O T   G U I L T Y *
    
    Judge:
      That is all.
      This court is adjourned!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    September 8, 2:16 PM
    District Court
    Defendant Lobby No. 1
    
    Byrde:
      I knew that the real you would
      shine through eventually!
    
    Byrde:
      I am so moved by what
      you've done for me, sir!
    
    Byrde:
      Thank you so much, Mr. Wright!
    
    Maya:
      I feel really bad for Dustin.
      He didn't do anything to
      deserve this...
    
    Byrde:
      ...
      It's probably because of me...
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh?
    
    Byrde:
      My whole life has been nothing
      but a whirlwind of bad luck
      and failures.
    
    Maya:
      Your whole life?
      It couldn't have been
      that bad, could it?
    
    Byrde:
      Since I was 6 months old, when
      I fell from the 9th floor of
      my apartment building,
    
    Byrde:
      I've been hit by all sorts of
      vehicles, gotten sick from
      all sorts of foods,
    
    Byrde:
      failed at almost every test
      I've ever taken, experienced
      almost every kind of disaster,
    
    Byrde:
      and never won or even tied at
      a game of tic-tac-toe!
    
    Byrde:
      My life has really been
      nothing but a string of
      disasters.
    
    Phoenix:
      That is, uh... pretty bad...
    
    Byrde:
      Up until I went to college, I
      was known as the "Goddess of
      Misfortune".
    
    Byrde:
      And then, at the academy,
      everyone called me "Lady
      Luckless".
    
    Maya:
      "Lady Luckless"...
    
    Byrde:
      What's worse is that my
      misfortune always seems to
      latch onto those around me.
    
    Maya:
      What do you mean?
    
    Byrde:
      When I see someone in trouble,
      I always try to help...
    
    Phoenix:
      Ah, that's right. You were
      talking about this earlier.
    
    Byrde:
      It happened again recently,
      too, sir.
    
    Byrde:
      There was an old lady
      pacing back and forth
      by the pedestrian crosswalk.
    
    Byrde:
      I gave her my hand and...
    
    Byrde:
      before I knew it, we were
      having dinner at my house.
    
    Maya:
      ...
      Oh.
    
    Byrde:
      I'm sure that Dustin's gone
      because of me...
    
    Maya:
      That's not true!
    
    Byrde:
      That glove didn't even have
      any sort of special meaning.
    
    Byrde:
      It was just a present to say
      thanks for covering one of
      my night shifts.
    
    Maya:
      Oh, I see...
    
    Byrde:
      Everything is all my fault!
      Dustin's death,
    
    Byrde:
      your head being all messed
      up...
    
    Phoenix:
      Uh, well, I don't think my
      head is that messed up yet...
    
    Byrde:
      I'm going to find a new life
      for myself starting now.
    
    Byrde:
      The next time we meet, I'm
      sure I'll...
    
    Byrde:
      I'm sure I'll have found a
      whole ocean's worth of
      good luck by then, sir!
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah. After all, the "Goddess
      of Misfortune" is only a name!
    
    Byrde:
      You bet!
      I'm gonna make it! I promise!
    
    Byrde:
      Next time we meet, I'll only
      be an "Unlucky Person",
      instead of a goddess!
    
    Phoenix:
      Y-Yeah! That's the spirit!
    
    Byrde:
      Well, Mr. Wright, Maya,
      I should get going.
    
    Maya:
      OK!
      Good luck to you!
    
    Byrde:
      Thanks! You take care of
      yourselves, too!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      *sigh* What a horrible day...
    
    Phoenix:
      I've gotten my memory back,
      but things are still a little
      fuzzy...
    
    Maya:
      But you're OK, and that's what
      counts. You really had me
      worried!
    
    Maya:
      Come on, let's go back to
      the office.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Hmm... I'm afraid to ask,
      but here goes...)
    
    Phoenix:
      So, this might sound bad,
      but... uh...
      Who are you...?
    
    Maya:
      What!?
    
    Maya:
      I thought you said you got
      your memory back!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (At that moment,)
    
    Phoenix:
      (everything really did come
      back to me...)
    
    
      Detective Gumshoe...
    
      He's someone I've had clashes
      with in the past during
      certain cases.
    
      But he's also been a good ally
      during others.
    
    
      The Judge...
    
      He's a lovable, kind old man
      who is easily swayed by other
      people's opinions.
    
      But in the end, he always
      comes up with the right
      verdict.
    
    
      ...
      This person...
      I haven't got a clue...
    
      He seems to know me, but
    
      maybe he's mistaking me
      for someone else...?
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (And this girl...)
      ...Maya...?
    
    Maya:
      You... You finally remembered!
    
    Phoenix:
      (This is Maya Fey, my
      assistant.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (That's right... I have so
      many unforgettable memories
      about her.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (For example...)
    
    Maya:
      Earth to Nick!
      What's wrong?
    
    Maya:
      You keep staring at me!
      Don't tell me you've missed
      me?
    
    Phoenix:
      Uh, well, yeah I suppose
      I have.
    
    Phoenix:
      I feel like I haven't seen you
      in ages.
    
    Maya:
      Oh?
    
    Maya:
      Well, I'm back now. So it's
      time for us to create new
      memories together!
    
    Phoenix:
      Alright. Sounds good.
    
    Phoenix:
      (All the phone numbers on
      my phone were erased by
      Mr. Wellington.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (I guess I have to start over
      from the very beginning...)
    
    Maya:
      Come on, Nick!
      Let's go to our usual burger
      joint!
    
    Phoenix:
      OK, OK.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Actually, it hasn't even been
      two months since she came
      back into my life.)
    
    --------------------------------------------

    That was... no accident...
    
    I was drugged...
         with sleeping pills...
    
    I was murdered...
         by that person...

      I finally get to see you

    Phoenix:
      It's not your fault.
      You didn't do it.
    
    Maya:
      No, I... I did it...
      I killed that person.
    
    Phoenix:
      But that wasn't you.
    
    Maya:
      It doesn't matter.
      It might as well have been me.

    ? ? ?:
      What depressing rain...
    
    ? ? ?:
      Do you understand how
      depressed that makes me!?
      Do you!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Uh, I guess...
    
    ? ? ?:
      But actually, more than being
      depressed, I'm angry. Angry
      at that weather girl on TV.
    
    ? ? ?:
      "I think our little rainy
      spell will take a break
      with a day of sun!"
    
    ? ? ?:
      ...is what that girl said!
      I'd stake my life on it!
    
    Phoenix:
      Well, it's the weather...
    
    ? ? ?:
      But that's why I didn't bother
      to bring an umbrella today.
    
    ? ? ?:
      What nerve, calling herself
      a weather girl! She's going
      to hear about my $1500 suit!
    
    Phoenix:
      Um...
      About your case...
    
    Phoenix:
      Unless you're planning on
      suing the weather girl...?
    
    ? ? ?:
      ...
    
    ? ? ?:
      I'm sorry.
    
    ? ? ?:
      I thought that before we got
      down to business, we could
      have some friendly chatter.
    
    ? ? ?:
      My name is Dr. Turner Grey.
      I'm a surgeon.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Remind me never to end
      up under his knife...)
    
    Grey:
      I'm here today because of
      this incident.
    
    Phoenix:
      "Malpractice at Grey Surgical
      Clinic. Fourteen In-Patients
      Lose Their Lives!"
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Oh.
      You're... the doctor at...?
    
    Grey:
      It's really quite upsetting.
    
    Grey:
      Did you hear me!?
      UPSETTING!
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes, yes, I heard you.
      I agree, it's quite upsetting,
      Dr. Grey.
    
    Grey:
      The one that screwed up
      was that nurse!
    
    Grey:
      It was her that got the
      medications mixed up and
      killed those 14 patients!
    
    Grey:
      And yet!
      Now listen good!
      And yet!
    
    Grey:
      That nurse had the nerve to
      go and die before admitting
      to her wrongdoing!
    
    Grey:
      She didn't even offer any
      sort of explanation to me!
      And this is the kicker!
    
    Grey:
      She up and has herself a grand
      ol' accident and crashed her
      car!
    
    Grey:
      Smash! Crunch!
      Instantly transforming her
      car into the accordion model!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (That's right... About a year
      ago, all the tabloid shows
      were talking about it.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Fourteen victims of medical
      malpractice and the nurse's
      mysterious fatal accident.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (There were rumors that
      Dr. Grey had actually
      caused that crash.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (People said it was to forever
      hide the person responsible
      for the malpractice incident.)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Grey:
      Why would I...?
      Now, I'm just going to say
      this once --
    
    Grey:
      Why on Earth would I want to
      kill that nurse?
    
    Grey:
      She's the one who killed those
      14 patients! Not me!
    
    Phoenix:
      I think you need to take a
      deep breath, doctor, and
      focus...
    
    Phoenix:
      More to the point, this case
      is over a year old.
      Why bring it up now...?
    
    Grey:
      That's simple! Because
      the situation is slipping
      out of my grasp.
    
    Grey:
      This just won't do.
      My clinic isn't seeing nearly
      as many patients nowadays.
    
    Grey:
      Do you understand what that
      means!? It means they're not
      coming to my clinic!
    
    Phoenix:
      (You don't say...?
      If it were me, I don't think
      I'd want to go either.)
    
    Phoenix:
      So... what would you like me
      to do about it...?
    
    Grey:
      I want you to help me prove
      I'm innocent.
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, you do realize I'm a
      lawyer, not a private
      investigator, right?
    
    Grey:
      No, this is something only
      you can do.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...?
    
    Grey:
      Maya Fey. You know this
      girl, correct?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Maya! Why would he know
      her name...!?)
    
    Grey:
      I heard you were working under
      her for a little while.
    
    Phoenix:
      Well, yes... I mean...
      Hey, wait a second here!
    
    Phoenix:
      I worked UNDER her!?
    
    Grey:
      Yes. Am I wrong?
      She told me, so I'm not
      quite sure if...
    
    Phoenix:
      Well, we worked a few trials
      together.
    
    Phoenix:
      But she went back to her
      hometown to undergo more
      training.
    
    Grey:
      Ah, yes, I heard. It must be
      lonely for you.
    
    Phoenix:
      Wh-What!?
      Wait... I'm not...!
    
    Grey:
      She must be an
      extraordinary girl to
      handle such rigid training.
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh?
    
    Grey:
      I have an acquaintance who
      knows a lot about these
      mystical sorts of things.
    
    Grey:
      She's the one who introduced
      me to Ms. Fey.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Is Maya... really that
      famous...?)
    
    Grey:
      And I've already set up an
      appointment.
    
    Phoenix:
      For what?
    
    Grey:
      What else!?
      A channeling!
    
    Grey:
      I'm going to have her call the
      spirit of that nurse that went
      and got herself killed!
    
    Phoenix:
      O-Oh.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Maya... I wonder what she's
      up to right now...)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Maya:
      We, the women of the Fey
      family, have always been
      spirit mediums.
    
    Maya:
      It's because the power to
      communicate with spirits
      flows strongly through us.
    
    Phoenix:
      (That's what she told me...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (I guess she's learned to
      accept her responsibilities
      and become an adult...)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Grey:
      Not counting training, this
      will be her first time
      channeling a spirit,
    
    Grey:
      so she gave me one condition
      before accepting my request.
    
    Phoenix:
      A condition...?
    
    Grey:
      The condition is you,
      Mr. Wright.
    
    Grey:
      She said that she wouldn't
      do the channeling without
      first seeing you again.
    
    Phoenix:
      Me...?
    
    Grey:
      And that is why I've searched
      you out!
    
    Grey:
      You want to see her too,
      don't you!?
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (And so...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (that is how I ended up
      visiting Maya's hometown
      with the doctor...)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    June 19, 1:25 PM
    Kurain Village
    
    Phoenix:
      (So this is Kurain Village;
      Maya's hometown.)
    
    ? ? ?:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      W-Why, hello there.
    
    ? ? ?:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      Hmm... What an odd little
      girl.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Hey! Wait up, Pearly!!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Hm? Someone else is
      coming this way...)
    
    ? ? ?:
      Niiiiiiiick!
    
    Phoenix:
      M-Maya. How are you...?
      It's good to see you again.
    
    Maya:
      Wow, I didn't think you'd
      really show up!
    
    Phoenix:
      It's not that big a deal. You
      made it sound like you were
      soooo far away.
    
    Maya:
      Well, maybe I exaggerated...
      just a little.
    
    Phoenix:
      It was only 2 hours by train.
      If I had known you were this
      close, I'd have visited more.
    
    Maya:
      No! You're not allowed.
      I already decided, you know.
    
    Maya:
      Until I become an adult, I
      have to work hard and be
      strong by myself...
    
    Phoenix:
      Oh... well...
    
    Phoenix:
      Anyway, congratulations.
      I'm glad to hear training
      is going well for you.
    
    Maya:
      Heh, heh...

    +++ Phone booth ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's an old-style phone booth.
    +   I can't say it fits in with
    +   this area too well.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   My cell phone doesn't get
    +   reception up here, so who
    +   knows. I may need it later.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Bus shelter ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   An old bus stop.
    +   It says "Kurain Village"
    +   on the sign post.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The buses seem incredibly
    +   inconvenient since they
    +   only come 3 times a day.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Giant rock +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A giant rock that seems to
    +   be reaching for the sky.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Its origins are written on a
    +   beat-up, old sign.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It looks like this giant
    +   rock is called the
    +   "Kurain Boulder".
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a really complex
    +   explanation written here,
    +   but long story short,
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   it's a big stone for spirits
    +   to live in...
    +   Or something like that...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Road and houses further ++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Rustic, thatch-roofed houses
    +   where the other villagers live
    +   line the street.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   They're nowhere near as large
    +   or as nice as the manor in
    +   front of me.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's kind of odd that I don't
    +   see any of the other villagers
    +   walking around, though...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Fey manor ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The biggest, most elegant
    +   of the buildings I can see
    +   from here.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This is Fey Manor; the place
    +   Maya calls home.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's easy to be overwhelmed
    +   by its presence...

    *** Attorney's Badge ***********************
    *
    * Maya:
    *   Ah, it's good to see this
    *   tarnished badge again.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   What do you mean by
    *   "tarnished"...?
    *
    * Maya:
    *   Well, look. This badge is
    *   like every other.
    *
    * Maya:
    *   It's bound to lose its color
    *   and shine after years and
    *   years.
    *
    * Maya:
    *   But you know, polishing it
    *   up once in a while wouldn't
    *   be a bad idea.
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Dr. Turner Grey profile ****************
    *
    * Maya:
    *   Hey, it's my client!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   "Client," huh?
    *   You're really serious
    *   about your work, aren't you?
    *
    * Maya:
    *   I thought I'd say it once,
    *   just to try it out,
    *
    * Maya:
    *   like how you always say,
    *   "My client."
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Anything else **************************
    *
    * Maya:
    *   Ha ha ha. I'm warning you!
    *   I'm not the same weak Maya
    *   you knew a year ago, Nick!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   You seem to have a lot of
    *   faith in yourself.
    *
    * Maya:
    *   You'll see soon enough.
    *
    * Maya:
    *   I think you'll be totally
    *   shocked by how good
    *   my hamburgers are now!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Were you training to be a
    *   medium or a cook?)

    --------------------------------------------
    
    *AFTER TALKING TO MAYA*
    
    Maya:
      Well, Nick, I've got to get
      going. It's about time for
      the channeling to start.
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh? Oh, yeah...
    
    Maya:
      I'm doing the channeling
      in my house, so come on
      in, OK?
    
    Maya:
      After I'm done, we can grill
      up some juicy burgers!
    
    Phoenix:
      Alright.
      Good luck, Maya.
    
    Maya:
      Thanks!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Well...
      At least she's still the
      same perky Maya.)
    
    MOVE TO: "Meditation Room"
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    June 19
    Fey Manor
    Meditation Room
    
    Grey:
      Ah, Mr. Wright. I'm so glad
      you showed.
    
    Phoenix:
      Some nice weather we're
      having today.
      Aren't you happy?
    
    Grey:
      No, not at all.
    
    Grey:
      That stupid weather girl made
      the wrong call again.
    
    Grey:
      "It will rain cats and dogs
      today!" she said with a
      straight face.
    
    Grey:
      I can't believe they allow
      such misguided reports on
      the public airwaves!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Looks like talking about the
      weather with this guy is just
      asking for punishment...)
    
    Grey:
      ...But anyway, this is a
      splendid manor.
    
    Phoenix:
      (No argument there...
      It's hard to believe that this
      is Maya's house, though...)
    
    Grey:
      I was give a guidemap to this
      building.
    
    Grey:
      Here, Mr. Wright.
      I have a copy for you too.
    
    *Guidemap added to the

    +++ Door +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A door that leads to the
    +   Channeling Chamber, the place
    +   where spirits and people meet.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The iron in this door was
    +   tempered, making it very
    +   solid.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It looks like there is a
    +   strong lock on this door
    +   to top it off.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Writing on top of the door +++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Someone with a lot of skill
    +   wrote these four Chinese
    +   characters with a brush.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Oh look, here's a translation:
    +   "Once in a Lifetime."
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Its message is people should
    +   value their ghostly meetings
    +   as once in a lifetime chances.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Blue board +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A piece of cloth with a ton
    +   of finely-written characters
    +   jammed onto it.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Probably esoteric knowledge
    +   only mediums should know.
    +   ...Hmm, let's see...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Here's one in English...
    +   It says...
    +   "100 Ways to Save Money".
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   ...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Being a medium sounds like
    +   a rough way of life...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Opening to the Winding way +++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This door leads out to the
    +   Winding Way.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The weather outside looks
    +   really nice.

    *   Don't make me laugh.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Huh?
    *
    * Grey:
    *   This is the countryside.
    *   Land here is dirt cheap.
    *
    * Grey:
    *   I will have something much
    *   greater one day! I will build
    *   my own grand mansion!
    *
    * Grey:
    *   Did you hear me!? A grand

    *   seem like nothing!

    *   my face? Thanks...)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    June 19
    Fey Manor
    Channeling Chamber
    
    Phoenix:
      (Wow... It's such a strange
      atmosphere in here...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (These flickering lights...
      I guess they're candles...)
    
    ? ? ?:
      Good sir!
      Who might you be...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Aaah!
      I-I'm, uh, my name is
      Phoenix Wright...
    
    ? ? ?:
      Oh... You must be that
      good sir...
    
    Phoenix:
      ("Good sir"...? Is she
      talking about me?)
    
    ? ? ?:
      You are a lawyer, are you not,
      good sir?
    
    ? ? ?:
      I have heard much about
      you from Mystic Maya.
    
    Phoenix:
      Is that so?
      ("Mystic" Maya...?)
    
    ? ? ?:
      I am Mystic Maya's aunt,
      Morgan Fey.
    
    Phoenix:
      N-Nice to meet you.
    
    Morgan:
      Ah, I had wanted to speak with
      you about a certain incident,
      good sir.
    
    Morgan:
      It would seem that perhaps you
      ask too much of Mystic Maya
      in performing your duties.
    
    Morgan:
      Most unbecoming, I'm afraid.
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh?
    
    Morgan:
      Don't tell me you have already
      forgotten?
    
    Morgan:
      That was it not for Mystic
      Maya and her assistance, you
      would surly not have won...
    
    Phoenix:
      (First a girl that runs away,
      and now an old lady who says
      I stink at doing my job...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (When did I become the poster
      boy for "How Not to Make a
      First Impression"...?)
    
    Morgan:
      The past is the past
      though. Let's us speak
      of the present now.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Ah, thank you...

    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ Door +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The Meditation Room is on
    +   the other side of this very
    +   heavy-looking door.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There is a giant iron lock
    +   where the handle is.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It feels like a curtain that
    +   separates the normal world
    +   from the spirit one.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Floor panels +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This is where the medium
    +   sits, I assume. There are
    +   4 panels of this flooring.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The straw in the flooring
    +   feels a little damp, probably
    +   from the humidity in the air.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Alter ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I guess this is an alter.
    +   Whatever it is, it feels
    +   very important.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A mirror-like object with
    +   a cloudy reflective surface,
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   and some branches of a
    +   sacred tree have been set in
    +   a pre-determined arrangement.
    +
    + Morgan:
    +   Good sir! I wonder if you
    +   would please not touch
    +   the sacred objects.
    +
    + Morgan:
    +   Those objects are being
    +   offered to the spirits.
    +
    + Morgan:
    +   If you were to touch them,
    +   good sir, they would become
    +   cursed. Yes, cursed.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (She really didn't have to
    +   talk down to me. I'm not
    +   that much of an idiot...)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Folding screen +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This folding screen is really
    +   showing its age. All of its
    +   edges are a bit tattered.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The lettering is fading too.
    +   I think I recognize a few of
    +   the characters on here...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   ...Ku
    +       ...ra
    +           ...in...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I'm pretty sure that's what it
    +   says... Maybe I'll ask Maya
    +   about it later...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Behind the folding screen ++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There is some empty space
    +   behind the folding screen.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The light of the candles can't
    +   reach back there, so it's
    +   completely dark.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    >
    > Phoenix:
    >   So... how strong are you...?
    >
    > Morgan:
    >   ...
    >   It is a shame, however I

    > Morgan:

    >
    > Morgan:

    > Morgan:

    June 19

    Winding Way
    
    Phoenix:
      (Wow. This garden is really
      breath-taking. Someone put
      a lot of love into it.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (What is that over there...?
      ...Is that an incinerator?)
    
    Phoenix:
      (It looks a little out of
      place in a garden like
      this...)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ The garden +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A splendid garden with a
    +   small lamp and traditional
    +   decorations.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a bit small to walk
    +   around in...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Although, that incinerator
    +   piques my curiosity...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Incinerator ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a small incinerator.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I don't think garbage trucks
    +   come all the way out here
    +   to a little village like this.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   So every family has to burn
    +   their own trash.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Side Room ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It looks like there's a room
    +   over there, too.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A peaceful feeling is
    +   emanating from it.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Urn ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a really old urn.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The ashes of a person
    +   long dead are inside.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It looks like something with
    +   a long history...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Other than that, it's not very
    +   interesting, so time to move
    +   on.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    MOVE TO: "Side Room"
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    June 19
    Fey Manor
    Side Room
    
    Phoenix:
      (So this is... the Side Room.
      Looks like it's more of a
      break room.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (There is bedding spread out
      on the floor. It looks like
      someone's sleeping in one.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (I shouldn't disturb them...)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ Wooden bear sculpture ++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a decorative wooden bear
    +   sculpture. There's a plate
    +   attached to the base.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   "Kurain Village - The Heart
    +   of Channeling"
    +   What the!? It's a souvenir.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   So does this mean it's easy
    +   to spot bears here... And for
    +   them to spot you...? *gulp*
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Alcove +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a small alcove.
    +   I have no idea what it's
    +   supposed to mean or symbolize.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   If I had one of these in the
    +   office, it would end up as
    +   storage space.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   But here, it's decorated with
    +   some pretty flowers and a
    +   beautiful hanging scroll.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Sliding door +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This is the first time I've
    +   seen a sliding door like this
    +   in person.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   From here, I can see the
    +   Winding Way and the little
    +   garden in the courtyard.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Bed on right +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's bedding spread out
    +   on the floor. Is that someone
    +   sleeping in one over there?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   She's probably an exhausted
    +   medium taking a break and
    +   catching some z's.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   If I wake her up, she might be
    +   grumpy and throw a spell on
    +   me.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's probably a good idea to
    +   not disturb her sleep...

      Channeling Chamber.
    
    Grey:
      With this, I can finally

    Grey:
      You hear me!? They won't
      be able to say a single bad
      thing about me after this!
    
    Grey:
      You would love to hear them

      Wouldn't you, Mr. Wright!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Me!? Oh, uh, yeah, I sure

    Morgan:
      Mystic Maya, do you have the

    Maya:
      Yup, right here.
    
    Morgan:
      That is most satisfactory.
    
    Morgan:
      That key is one-of-a-kind, so

    Maya:
      It'll be fine, Aunt Morgan.
      I won't lose it, trust me!

      OK, Dr. Grey.

      What!? I'm from the heart
      of the heartland!

    *
    * Lotta:
    *   Must be an awful thing to
    *   see each other again and
    *   have this happen.
    *
    * Lotta:
    *   Never woulda guessed that
    *   gal would end up being a
    *   murderer.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   That wasn't Maya!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   She was being controlled
    *   by a spirit...
    *
    * Lotta:
    *   Come on, now, City Boy.
    *   Ya really think the cops'll
    *   believe that?
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Dr. Turner Grey profile ****************
    *
    * Lotta:
    *   Hey, it's that Dr. Grey guy.
    *   Pity what happened to him.
    *
    * Lotta:
    *   Pretty scary what ghouls and
    *   ghosts can do to a man, huh?
    *   Gawd rest his poor soul.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Hmm... Since when was Lotta
    *   so religious...?)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Morgan Fey profile *********************
    *
    * Lotta:
    *   That old lady sure can be
    *   forceful.

    *** Dick Gumshoe profile *******************
    *
    * Lotta:
    *   I swear I've seen his face
    *   before. Maybe during that
    *   last case...
    *
    * Lotta:
    *   Whenever something happens,
    *   this detective guy is always
    *   there.
    *
    * Lotta:
    *   I wonder if he's the real
    *   baddie behind everything?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Somehow, I highly
    *   doubt it...)
    *

    *** Anything else **************************
    *
    * Lotta:
    *   Nope. Don't know nothin'
    *   about that.
    *
    * Lotta:
    *   Things that don't catch my
    *   eye, don't catch my interest.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (And she calls herself a
    *   journalist??)

    Phoenix:
      Calm down, Maya!
      Take deep breaths.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Come to think of it, the
      first time I met her...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (It all started right here,
      in this detention center...)
    
    Maya:
      I finally...
    
    Maya:
      I finally get to see you
      again, and...
    
    Phoenix:
      It's not your fault.
      You didn't do it.
    
    Maya:
      No, I... I did it...
      I killed that person.
    
    Phoenix:
      But that wasn't you.
    
    Maya:
      It doesn't matter.
      It might as well have been me.
    
    Maya:
      I was too weak... and I...
      I couldn't control the
      spirit's power, so...
    
    Phoenix:
      (I don't want to bring up the
      case quite yet, but...)
    
    Maya:
      ...You don't have to be nice
      to me. I understand.

    +++ Guard ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This guard monitors

    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I wonder if he's bored. Not
    +   that I can tell since he never

    Phoenix:
      (...I guess this is about all
      the information I'm going to
      gather for today...)
    
    Phoenix:
      I'll be back later, Maya.
      In the meantime, please make
      sure you prepare it, OK?
    
    Maya:
      Huh? "It"?
      What is "it"?
    
    Phoenix:
      The document requesting
      me to be your attorney,
      of course.
    
    Maya:
      ...!
    
    Maya:
      But...
    
    Phoenix:
      What's wrong?
    
    Maya:
      Are you sure?
      I mean, I'm guilty!
      I'm a murderer!
    
    Phoenix:
      No one's decided that yet.
    
    Maya:
      But I did! I killed that
      person... with these...
      two hands...!
    
    Phoenix:
      That's enough, Maya.
    
    Maya:
      It's hopeless! If you defend

      This is called a Magatama.
      It's a magical charm and it's

    June 20
    Wright & Co. Law Offices
    
    Phoenix:
      Phew. It feels like I've been
      gone forever.
    
    Phoenix:
      But it's only been one day...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Oh, that's right!)
    
    Phoenix:
      Where's that newspaper
      Dr. Grey brought the
      other day...?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Ah, here it is. Right on
      top of my desk.
    
    Phoenix:
      (This is the only thing he
      left behind that's going
      to be of any help...)

    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ Window +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There is a giant building
    +   just outside the window.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's the Gatewater Hotel, a
    +   high-class, luxury hotel.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Until recently, it had been
    +   a normal, business-class
    +   hotel.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Plant ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Charley.
    +   A quite decorative plant.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a memento of my boss,
    +   Mia... who passed away.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The rest of the room may be in
    +   shambles, but I always manage
    +   to care for this little fella.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Poster +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A poster of the TV action
    +   hero, the Steel Samurai.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Maya stuck it up here right
    +   before she left.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I wouldn't say that the Steel
    +   Samurai and an attorney's
    +   office are a good match, but
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Maya threatened to curse me
    +   with some magic spell... so I
    +   guess it can stay.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Bookshelf ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Difficult-looking legal books
    +   stand in a formidable row.
    +   They mock me.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   ...Actually, I've neglected
    +   them for so long, a layer
    +   of dust has started to form.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   One of these days, I should
    +   try to build up the courage to
    +   read one... Maybe.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Desk +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's my desk.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I keep it neat for those rare
    +   occasions when I actually
    +   have a client in the office.

    June 20
    Detention Center
    Visitor's Room
    
    Phoenix:
      (Maya must still be in
      questioning...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (I hope the detectives are
      taking it easy on her, but...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (these kinds of cases
      aren't taken lightly.
      I guess I'll come back later.)
    
    MOVE TO: "Kurain Village"

    June 20
    Kurain Village
    
    Phoenix:
      (I have to save Maya, no
      matter what!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (It's her life on the line!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (What in the world happened
      in that room yesterday?)
    
    MOVE TO: "Meditation Room"
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    June 20
    Fey Manor
    Meditation Room
    
    Phoenix:
      (The Meditation Room nurtures
      all mediums young and old.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Even mediums in training,
      I'd wager. But it's pretty
      deserted today...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (...probably because of the
      murder yesterday...)
    
    MOVE TO: "Channeling Chamber"
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    June 20
    Fey Manor
    Channeling Chamber
    
    Phoenix:
      It looks like Detective
      Gumshoe isn't here today...
    
    Phoenix:
      I should take this chance and
      thoroughly check this room.
    
    Phoenix:
      If I'm lucky, I might uncover
      a clue or two...
    
    Morgan:
      Oh, Mr. Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      Good morning.
    
    Morgan:
      I am on my way to go meet
      Mystic Maya,
    
    Morgan:
      and I thought to bring her
      some items to make her
      feel more at home.
    
    Morgan:
      Namely, tea so bitter you lose
      your tongue and jaw-droppingly
      large strawberry desserts.
    
    Phoenix:
      I'm sure Maya will be very
      grateful...
    
    Morgan:
      That's "Mystic Maya", good
      sir!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Urk. She is one scary lady.)
    
    Morgan:
      Oh, dear, sweet Mystic Maya...
    
    Morgan:
      Pearl wept constantly for
      you last night, as did I.
    
    Phoenix:
      (I know it's important for me
      to search the site,)
    
    Phoenix:
      (but I should ask her some
      questions too, while I have
      the chance...)

    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ Door +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The Meditation Room is on
    +   the other side of this very
    +   heavy-looking door.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The lock on it is broken,
    +   because, well... I broke it.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It doesn't seem possible, but
    +   I managed to break it pretty
    +   badly.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   When we want to do something
    +   bad enough, people can do the
    +   most amazing things.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Floor panels on left +++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This is where the medium
    +   sits, I assume. There are
    +   4 panels of this flooring.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The straw in the flooring
    +   feels a little damp, probably
    +   from the humidity in the air.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   No matter what I do, my eyes
    +   keep getting drawn to the pool
    +   of blood in the center here.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Alter ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I guess this is an alter.
    +   Whatever it is, it feels
    +   very important.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A mirror-like object with
    +   a cloudy reflective surface,
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   and some branches of a
    +   sacred tree have been set in
    +   a pre-determined arrangement.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I'd guess they're used during
    +   the channeling...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Folding screen +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a beautiful and expensive
    +   folding screen. It also looks
    +   quite old.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There seems to be some sort
    +   of sacred text written on
    +   it, but I can't read it.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   ...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   !
    +   Th-This is...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a hole! Could this have
    +   been made by a bullet?
    +
    + *Folding Screen added to the
    + Court Record.*
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Behind the folding screen ++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There is some empty space
    +   behind the folding screen.
    +

    *** Maya's Magatama ************************
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   ...Oh my!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Wh-What is it?
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   That... That is Mystic Maya's
    *   Magatama.
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   Why would you have this in
    *   your possession!?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   I-I'm sorry!
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   Return it to Mystic Maya at
    *   once!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Y-Yes, madam!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Why did I feel like I was
    *   being scolded by my own
    *   mother just now...?)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Folding Screen *************************
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   Ah, so even someone such as
    *   yourself can take interest in
    *   something like this.
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   This is the Kurain Channeling
    *   Technique Sacred Writings.
    *   There are 6 panels in all.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   I see...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   But that's not what
    *   caught my eye. You see
    *   this hole here...?
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   It is an old screen, you see.
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   It is only logical that
    *   perhaps a bug or worm of
    *   some sort is the culprit.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Even though this looks
    *   nothing like the eating
    *   patterns of any bug I know...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Maya Fey profile ***********************
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   I can hardly believe Mystic
    *   Maya has become like this.
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   Directly influenced
    *   by the likes of you,
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   and becoming caught up in
    *   a situation such as this...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   I'm sorry...
    *   (...Hey, hold on! How
    *   is all this MY fault!?)
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   I told her so many times, as I
    *   have also told Pearl,
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   "Do not associate with strange
    *   old men you don't know".
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Well, that shouldn't apply to
    *   me then, especially since I'm
    *   hardly an "old man" yet!!)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Dr. Turner Grey ************************
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   That doctor was one of those
    *   people.
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   Those who intend harm upon
    *   the spirits receive harm
    *   in return; it's karma at work.
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   It seems that he was the one
    *   to take the nurse's life,
    *   wouldn't you agree?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (I guess that's possible...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Pearl Fey profile **********************
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   Good sir!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Y...Yes?
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   When did you take this
    *   picture!?
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   This is one of those... what
    *   are they called...? Those...
    *   "hidden camera" pictures!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   N-No!!
    *   It's not one of those at all!!
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   Such an unforgivable offense!
    *   You will hand it over to me!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   N-No! I won't!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (If I ever want to talk about
    *   Pearl again, I should be much
    *   more careful...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Morgan Fey profile *********************
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   It shows the same face as the
    *   one I see in the mirror every
    *   day.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   And? Anything else?
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   No. That is all.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Why in the world did I
    *   bother to show this to
    *   her!?)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Any other evidence *********************
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   I will be leaving shortly to
    *   meet with Mystic Maya.
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   I simply do not have the
    *   time to look at such
    *   trivial matters.
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Any other profile **********************
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   We usually do not welcome
    *   strangers into our village as
    *   they disturb the aura here.
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   Especially people like you,
    *   good sir.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   H-Hey, what do you mean,
    *   "especially people like me?"
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   You selfishly make Mystic
    *   Maya help you with your
    *   work...
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   You should be thankful I have
    *   not taken your life for such a
    *   disrespectful act.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Y-Yes, madam...
    *
    * Morgan:
    *   And even more importantly,
    *   remember that if anything
    *   were to happen to Pearl...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (What is that supposed to
    *   mean!?)
    *
    ********************************************

    *AFTER TALKING TO MORGAN AND RETRIEVE FOLDING SCREEN*
    
    Morgan:
      Well, then, I do believe it is
      time for me to take my leave.
    
    Phoenix:
      Alright. Please tell Maya
      I said hi.
    
    Morgan:
      What was that!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Uh, I mean, Mystic Maya.
    
    Morgan:
      I will tell her.
    
    Phoenix:

      uh, dentist guy...
    
    Phoenix:
      No, no, I'm a lawyer.
    
    Ini:
      That's right!
      Um... Mr. Smith, Esquire.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...That's "Wright".
      Wait, I mean, you're wrong.
      My name is "Wright".
    
    Ini:
      "Smith", "Wright"... Well, I
      got, like, three letters,
      at least.
    
    Phoenix:
      (I don't think she gets the
      point...)
    
    Phoenix:
      Anyway, why are you here?
    
    Ini:
      So, like, I study this thing
      called "parapsychology" at
      this college and...
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, you told me about that
      yesterday. The sesame
      allergy, too.
    
    Phoenix:
      What I'd really like to know
      is why you're still here
      today?
    
    Ini:
      Oh! So, like, that's what you
      meant! Like, you shoulda been
      more, like, clear about it!
    
    Phoenix:
      S-Sorry. My bad.
    
    Ini:
      No, it's OK.
      Like, it's really...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Ini:
      ...?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...That's it?
      Why'd you stop mid-sentence!?
    
    Ini:
      Did I?
      ...So, like... what was
      I talking about again...?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...

    +++ Wooden bear sculpture ++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a decorative wooden bear
    +   sculpture. There's a plate
    +   attached to the base.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   "Kurain Village - The Heart
    +   of Channeling"
    +   What the!? It's a souvenir.
    +
    + Ini:
    +   Isn't it cuuuuute?
    +   I, like, totally bought that!
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Ah... so it's yours, huh?
    +
    + Ini:
    +   Yeah. So, like, this village
    +   is really famous for, like,
    +   channeling and bears.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Heh.
    +   (...Wait. Famous for bears!?)
    +
    + Ini:
    +   But it's, like, OK.
    +
    + Ini:
    +   If you ever, like, see a bear,
    +   you just play dead, and they,
    +   like, leave you alone.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I-Is that right?
    +
    + Ini:
    +   Yeah.
    +   Cause, like, fighting back
    +   is totally of no use.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Has she actually tried
    +   to fight one!?)
    +

    +++ Yellow box +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Hmm, now where did
    +   this box come from?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I'm sure this wasn't here last
    +   night.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It looks like a box for
    +   storing clothes... But it's
    +   pretty big for just clothes...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's mostly empty, but a few

      her something that dangerous!

    *   Yeah, but that's not all, pal.
    *   Things only got worse after

    * Gumshoe:

    *   Now, there was a smart man.

      This is the power of the

      If it's only one, I think you
      can easily unlock it.
    
    Phoenix:
      "Unlock"...? But how?
    
    Pearl:
      Please use Mystic Maya's

      and let's remove the lock.
    
    Phoenix:

      I'll give it a try.)
    
    Pearl:
      You must be careful, though,
      Mr. Nick. If you make a
      mistake, it will hurt you.
    
    Pearl:
      If you don't think you have
      the proof you need, you must
      have the courage to stop.

      While it may be possible that
      you never actually met
      Dr. Grey in person,

      I do believe you might have
      at least, indirectly known of

    Ini:
      Um..."Mimi Miney"...
    
    Phoenix:
      "Miney" is a pretty rare
      last name, wouldn't you say?
    
    Phoenix:
      Ms. Mimi Miney wouldn't
      happen to be a relative of
      yours, would she?
    
    Ini:
      ...!
    
    Ini:
      So you noticed.
      Sh-She was my older sister.
    
    Phoenix:
      I'm sorry about your loss...
    
    Phoenix:
      Your sister... Was she a
      nurse... Perhaps at Dr. Grey's
      surgical clinic?
    
    Ini:
      ...!
    
    Phoenix:
      Grey Surgical Clinic...
    
    Phoenix:
      I don't think I need to tell
      you that the clinic was run by
      the victim, Dr. Turner Grey.
    
    Phoenix:
      Which is how you knew of
      Dr. Grey; you knew him
      through your sister!

      Do you understand now,
      Mr. Nick? This is how a
      Psyche-Lock works.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Well, I don't plan to pry
      into people's hearts unless
      I absolutely need to...
    
    Pearl:
      The lock this time was
      pretty easy, but...
    
    Pearl:
      you might meet people who
      aren't as willing to give in
      later on.
    
    Pearl:
      If you don't have enough
      proof, be careful and know
      when to stop trying.

      Hmm? What's wrong?
    
    Pearl:
      I have never left Kurain
      Village.
    
    Phoenix:
      R-Really? Wow, that's, um,
      pretty amazing...
    
    Pearl:
      You are going to meet with
      Mystic Maya... aren't you?
    
    Pearl:
      Please tell her I said hi.
    
    Phoenix:
      Hey, wait!
    
    Phoenix:
      (She ran off... Again.
      Well, I know Ini's
      secret now, but...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (I still don't have any idea
      how I'm going to save Maya.)
    
    Phoenix:

      Can I really save her...?)
    
    ? ? ?:
      Sorry to keep you waiting.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Huh? Must be Maya...)
    
    ? ? ?:
      It's been a long time, hasn't
      it, Phoenix?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...!
      (That voice...)
    
    Phoenix:
      M-Mia!
    
    Mia:
      Even without me being here,
      it looks like you've learned
      to stand on your own.

    Phoenix:
      (Mia... She's Maya's older
      sister, and my mentor.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (She was a top-notch defense
      lawyer, but a certain case
      forced her into "retirement".)

      (But... whenever I'm in
      trouble, she comes to
      help, just like this.)

      the other world and borrows
      Maya's body for a bit...)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Mia:
      Phoenix, you can't make that
      kind of face in front of your
      client.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...!
    
    Mia:
      A lawyer is someone who smiles
      no matter how bad it gets, and
      especially when it's bad.
    
    Phoenix:
      Mia...
    
    Mia:
      You can't smile at the end if
      you haven't been smiling the
      whole way there.
    
    Mia:
      In any case, the face you're
      making now is no face to
      show a client, Phoenix.
    
    Phoenix:
      B-But!
    
    Mia:
      So, tell me all about it.
    
    Mia:
      I'm going to guess that my
      sister is in a lot of trouble
      again...
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (I told her everything about
      what had happened in the
      last two days.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Mia closed her eyes, deep
      in thought, while she
      listened...)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Mia:
      ...I see...
    
    Phoenix:
      Mia... What am I supposed to
      do?
    
    Mia:
      ...
    
    Mia:
      It's pretty clear what a good
      lawyer does in this situation.
    
    Phoenix:
      A-And that is!?
      Tell me, please!
    
    Mia:
      Believe in your convictions.
    
    Mia:
      And fight for the complete
      acquittal of your client.

    Maya:
      Um... I'm really scared...
      What if Von Karma tries
      to do something to me?
    
    Maya:
      At least I know Mr. Edgeworth
      would be nicer to me than Von
      Karma!
    
    Pearl:
      Mr. Eh-ji-werth? Who is that?
    
    Maya:
      Um, he's Nick's rival...
      Well, he's also a friend.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Edgeworth:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Maya:
      I still remember him as if
      I had just seen him only
      yesterday.
    
    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Maya:
      Every trial was a scorching
      fierce battle until the very
      end.
    
    Edgeworth:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Maya:
      It was always back and forth
      with them. But when you're
      rivals for life...
    
    Phoenix:
      Maya!
      Please don't mention
      that name ever again...
    
    Maya:
      Huh...?
      But why, Nick?
    
    Phoenix:
      I'm... I'm sorry, Maya.
      I forgot you don't know...
    
    Phoenix:
      He... He's...
      He's gone...
      And he's not coming back...
    
    Maya:
      Whaaaat!?
    
    Maya:
      W-W-Wait...
      Wait a second!!
      What's that supposed to mean!?
    
    Bailiff:
      Court will commence shortly.
      Please proceed into the
      courtroom.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      Let's go.
      Now's not the time to talk
      about that anyway.
    
    Maya:
      N...Nick...?

    June 21, 10:00 AM
    District Court
    Courtroom No. 2
    
    Judge:
      Court is now in session for
      the trial of Maya Fey.
    
    Judge:
      Are the prosecution and the
      defense prepared?
    
    ? ? ?:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
      (What is with this girl...?)
    
    Judge:
      ...
    
    Judge:
      *Ahem!*
      Mr. Wright!!
      Are you finally prepared!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh?
    
    Phoenix:
      A-Ah, yes, Your Honor.
      (Why does he always
      seem mad at me!?)
    
    ? ? ?:
      Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...!
    
    ? ? ?:
      You must be a little shocked
      because I am a woman, correct?
    
    Phoenix:
      (...Hold on. So this kid is
      the "famed" Prosecutor
      von Karma...?)
    
    von Karma:
      I am Franziska von Karma,
      the Prodigy.
    
    Phoenix:
      I... see...
    
    von Karma:
      I gave up a promising career
      in Germany and came to this
      country for one sole reason.
    
    von Karma:
      Revenge.
    
    Phoenix:
      Revenge...?
      (Is this about her father,
      Manfred von Karma...?)
    
    Judge:
      Um... If it's something of a
      personal nature, I'm sure you
      can...
    
    Judge:
      Oww!
    
    von Karma:
      I'm talking.
    
    von Karma:
      If you interrupt again, my
      whip will do the speaking
      for me.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Please speak with your mouth
      like a normal person...
      I beg of you...)
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeow!!
    
    von Karma:
      Make no mistake;
      I will defeat you!
    
    von Karma:
      Prepare to go down,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright!
    
    Judge:
      Prosecutor von Karma, your
      opening statement, please...
    
    von Karma:
      Those of Von Karma blood
      have only one fate.
    
    von Karma:
      And that is "perfection".
    
    von Karma:
      The defendant, Maya Fey, will
      find no escape from her guilt
      on my watch.
    
    Judge:
      V-Very well...
      What is the defense's
      position?
    
    Phoenix:
      Your Honor.
    
    Judge:
      Does the defense wish to
      enter a plea of "not guilty"?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Yes.
    
    von Karma:
      Foolish fool who foolishly
      dreams of foolish dreams...
    
    von Karma:
      Ten minutes. I give the
      defense ten minutes
      before it changes its plea.
    
    von Karma:
      That's right. I'll have you
      running for the "justified
      self-defense" plea in no time.
    
    Phoenix:
      ("Justified self-defense"...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (A plea usually reserved for
      when a person unintentionally
      kills in defense of himself.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (We could very easily make
      a solid case that it was
      self-defense, but...)
    
    Phoenix:
      The defense stands by the
      plea of "not guilty", Your
      Honor!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Because to plead "justified
      self-defense" is to say you
      did kill someone.)
    
    von Karma:
      How foolish.
    
    von Karma:
      If that's how you want to play
      it, Mr. Phoenix Wright,
    
    von Karma:
      then I shall now call
      the first witness.
    
    Phoenix:
      (She's just as scary as
      her father. Like father, like
      daughter I suppose.)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    von Karma:
      Witness, your name and
      occupation?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Yes, sir! My name is Dick
      Gumshoe. I'm a detective at
      the local precinct.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Aah!!
    
    von Karma:
      Get to the point already.
    
    von Karma:
      Explain to the court the
      details of this murder.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Y-Yes, sir! Um, if everyone
      would please look at this
      map.
    
    Gumshoe:
      The Channeling Chamber has
      no windows and the door was
      locked shut.
    
    Gumshoe:
      At the time of the murder,
      only the victim and the
      defendant were in the room.
    
    Judge:
      What were they doing in there?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Um... They... Well, they were
      channeling... a spirit... Sir.
    
    Judge:
      Ch-Channeling a spirit??
    
    Phoenix:
      (The look of disbelief on the
      judge's face is...)
    
    Gumshoe:
      *ahem*
      Anyway, a few minutes
      after the channeling started,
    
    Gumshoe:
      gunshots were heard coming
      from inside the room, sir.
    
    Gumshoe:
      A few of the witnesses broke
      the door down, and rushed into
      the room.
    
    Judge:
      Ah, and that's when they found
      that the victim was already
      dead, correct?
    
    Judge:
      Hmm, I believe this is one of
      the most open and shut cases
      I have ever presided over.
    
    *Floor Plans added to the
    Court Record.*
    
    Judge:
      So, how was the victim killed?
    
    Gumshoe:
      I was about to get to that...
    
    von Karma:
      Stop wasting my time, then.

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- Cause of Death --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      The direct cause of death was
      a pistol shot to the forehead,
      sir.
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      The shot was fired from
      point-blank range.
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      But before the victim was
      shot, sir, he was stabbed in
      the chest.
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      The wound was very severe,
      but not enough to cause
      instantaneous death.
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      The murderer used the pistol
      to finish the victim off after
      the stabbing.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
    
    Judge:
      So the victim was stabbed
      before being shot...
    
    Gumshoe:
      This is the victim's autopsy
      report, sir.
    
    *Autopsy Report added to
    the Court Record.*
    
    Judge:
      The court accepts it into
      evidence. Mr. Wright, you
      may question the witness.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- Cause of Death --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      The direct cause of death was
      a pistol shot to the forehead,
      sir.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           The murder weapon, Detective
           Gumshoe. Whose pistol was
           it?
    
         Gumshoe:
           It was the victim's.
    
         Phoenix:
           The victim?
           Now, why would he have...
    
         von Karma:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         von Karma:
           "Why would he have a pistol?"
           Who cares?
    
         von Karma:
           The point that you are missing
           is whose fingerprints are on
           that pistol.
    
         von Karma:
           If you're not already paying
           attention to that, then I
           suggest you start.
    
         Judge:
           Fingerprints?
           There were fingerprints?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Along with the victim's,
    
         Gumshoe:
           the defendant, Maya Fey's
           were also on the grip, sir.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm.
    
         Judge:
           So the defendant's
           fingerprints were left
           on the murder weapon...
    
         Phoenix:
           (Hmm...
           I walked right into
           her hands there.)
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      The shot was fired from
      point-blank range.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Point blank, huh?
           So about how far away was
           it?
    
         Gumshoe:
           It was anywhere between
           12 to 20 inches away.
    
         Phoenix:
           And how do you know he was
           shot at point blank?
    
         von Karma:
           Tsk, tsk, tsk.
           Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
         von Karma:
           I grow tired of the foolish
           foolery of the foolish fools
           of this foolish country...
    
         Phoenix:
           E-Excuse me!?
    
         von Karma:
           Gunpowder burn.
    
         Phoenix:
           ...Gunpowder burn?
    
         von Karma:
           When something is shot from
           point blank, a burn area is
           left around the bullet hole.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Gunpowder exploding is what
           makes a bullet fire, and that
           gets real hot, pal.
    
         Gumshoe:
           And there were definitely some
           gunpowder burns left on the
           victim's forehead!
    
         Phoenix:
           (Wow... Never knew that...
           Live and learn, I guess...)
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      But before the victim was
      shot, sir, he was stabbed in
      the chest.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Stabbed...
           And what was he stabbed with?
    
         Gumshoe:
           A fruit knife.
    
         Judge:
           I see.
           And whose knife was it?
    
         Gumshoe:
           It looks like it belongs to
           the Feys, sir.
    
         Gumshoe:
           And of course, Maya Fey's
           fingerprints are all over it.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm... All over it, huh?
    
         Phoenix:
           (Urk.
           This does not look good...)
    
         von Karma:
           Ha ha ha.
           What will you do now,
           Mr. Phoenix Wright?
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      The wound was very severe,
      but not enough to cause
      instantaneous death.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           How severe was the wound?
    
         Gumshoe:
           If it had been half an inch
           more to the right, it would've
           hit the victim's heart.
    
         Gumshoe:
           After a stab like that, it's
           impossible to fight back, let
           alone stand.
    
         Phoenix:
           (This testimony makes Maya
           look like she had stabbed him
           with the intent to kill...)
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      The murderer used the pistol
      to finish the victim off after
      the stabbing.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Are you sure he was stabbed
           first, then shot?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yup.
           Sure as sure can be.
    
         Gumshoe:
           One look at the wounds and
           you'd come to the same
           conclusion too, pal.
    
         von Karma:
           A fool is a fool who will only
           listen to the foolish opinions
           of other foolish fools...
    
         von Karma:
           A pistol shot to the forehead
           at point blank is certainly
           enough to kill instantly.
    
         von Karma:
           Does it matter, then, which
           was first?
    
         von Karma:
           Think a little more before you
           open that big mouth of yours,
           Mr. Phoenix Wright!
    
         Phoenix:
           (Grr... What a pain...)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (Nothing sounds out of place
      so far...)

      about the murder weapons,
      for now...)

      We have clearly established
      how the victim was murdered.

      I brought the two murder
      weapons with me today.

    von Karma:
      Eyewitnesses claim to have
      heard two gunshots at this
      time.

      And the two murder weapons,
      both with the defendant's
      fingerprints on them...?
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
      This does seem like an
      open and shut case.

      Naturally!

      bad to worse...)

      yours.

      That is quite true...

    Phoenix:
      Y-Yes?
    
    Judge:
      Even in the face of all this,
      do you still wish to plead
      "not guilty"?
    
    Judge:
      It's the opinion of this court
      that if you do not adjust your
      plea, you stand to lose.
    
    von Karma:
      See, just as I promised,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
    von Karma:
      You would change your
      plea in less than ten
      minutes...
    
    Judge:
      What will you do, Mr. Wright?
    
    Judge:
      Will you change to "justified
      self-defense"? Because now
      would be the time to do so.
    
    Judge:
      This is your final chance.

      Y-Yes, sir!

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- Incriminating Evidence --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      Sorry, pal but there's an even
      more incriminating piece of
      evidence.
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      This is the costume the
      defendant was wearing at
      the time of the crime.
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      As you can see, it's covered
      in blood.
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      The defendant attacked and
      killed a person who, without a
      doubt, was not fighting back.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      So this is the costume...
    
    Judge:
      There certainly is evidence of
      a back spray of blood on this.
    
    Gumshoe:
      This piece directly links Maya
      Fey to the crime, sir.
    
    Judge:
      I see...
      The court accepts
      this into evidence.
    
    *Maya's Costume added to the
    Court Record.*
    
    Judge:
      Alright, Mr. Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Maya's fingerprints on both
      murder weapons and blood
      splatters on her clothes...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Could this situation get any
      worse??)
    
    von Karma:
      Hah.
      What's wrong?
      You seem to be at a loss.
    
    von Karma:
      I think this is the last piece
      of testimony the prosecution
      should have to offer.
    
    von Karma:
      Feel free to sulk off with
      your tail between your legs,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Please stop calling me by my
      full name. It's disturbing.)

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- Incriminating Evidence --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      Sorry, pal but there's an even
      more incriminating piece of
      evidence.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Why didn't you say so in your
           testimony earlier!?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Uh... You're kinda scary
           today, you know, pal?
    
         Judge:
           Come now, Mr. Wright...
           There is no need for that kind
           of attitude in my court...
    
         Phoenix:
           ...
    
         Judge:
           A-Alright. Just, please stop
           glaring at me like that...
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      This is the costume the
      defendant was wearing at
      the time of the crime.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Maya's... costume?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yeah. She was wearing this
           when we arrested her.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Maya... She's wearing her
           channeling costume today
           too...)
    
         Phoenix:
           (Is she not allowed to wear
           anything else...?)
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      As you can see, it's covered
      in blood.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           This blood on the costume...
    
         Gumshoe:
           Lab results show that it
           is the victim's blood.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm... So there is blood from
           the victim on the defendant's
           clothes.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Definitely not good... Urk.)
    
         Phoenix:
           Hmm, where there any other
           clues you could gleam from
           this piece of evidence?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Um, well...
    
         von Karma:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         von Karma:
           If you must change the topic,
           then the good detective here
           must testify again.
    
         von Karma:
           But too bad. Not enough time.
           Time to move on.
    
         Judge:
           Ah, yes, Ms. von Karma is
           perfectly correct...
    
         Phoenix:
           (Grr... Now even the Judge is
           on her side!)
    
         Phoenix:

      The defendant attacked and
      killed a person who, without a
      doubt, was not fighting back.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           He wasn't "fighting back"?
           How do you know if he was
           or wasn't!?
    
         Gumshoe:
           We could find no evidence that
           the victim put up any sort of
           struggle, pal.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
    
         Judge:
           So did the murderer have a
           fight with the victim, or not?
    
         Judge:
           Depending on this, the
           circumstances around this
           murder change drastically.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Ugh... We're in real trouble
           now...)
    
         Phoenix:
           (If only I had something to
           prove that the victim did
           fight back...)

      (That Von Karma! She thinks
      she can decide the verdict
      with this testimony alone!)

      then I'll have her!)

      Detective Dick Gumshoe!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Y-Yes?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Heh, having you call me by
      my full name is kind of a
      weird feeling...
    
    Phoenix:
      You said that my client killed
      "a person who, without a
      doubt, was not fighting back."
    
    Gumshoe:
      Yeah, I did.
    
    Phoenix:
      Then what, may I ask, is
      the bullet hole you police
      overlooked supposed to mean!?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Eh, um... What does it mean?
    
    Phoenix:
      I'll tell you what it means.
    
    Phoenix:
      It means that the victim had
      fired off a shot.
    
    Phoenix:
      Is this what it means to
      "not fight back"?
    
    Gumshoe:
      A-Ah!
      You're right!
    
    Judge:
      It would seem that way!
    
    Judge:
      If the victim tried to shoot
      the defendant, then...
      It would change everything...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Alright! The wind seems
      to be shifting...)
    
    von Karma:
      Hah.
    
    Phoenix:
      (What is with that "are you
      finished yet" laugh?)
    
    von Karma:
      Are you finished yet,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright?
    
    Judge:
      Ms. von Karma?
    
    von Karma:
      It seems... that Maya Fey was
      shot at by the victim.
    
    von Karma:
      However, that is only grounds
      enough to support a "justified
      self-defense" plea.
    
    Judge:
      That is correct.
    
    von Karma:
      But I'm sure you remember,
      Your Honor, what the defense
      clearly said.
    
    von Karma:
      They rejected "justified self-
      defense" and pleaded "not
      guilty."
    
    Phoenix:
      Ack!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Now that you...
    
    Judge:
      Why, that's right!
    
    von Karma:
      Which means!
    
    von Karma:
      The defense has yet to prove
      anything at all!
    
    Phoenix:
      Nooooo!!
    
    Judge:
      W-Well...
      Yes, that's true...
    
    von Karma:
      Furthermore...
    
    von Karma:
      just the fact that there is a
      bullet hole in the costume...
    
    von Karma:
      is not enough to substantiate
      even a plea of "justified
      self-defense".
    
    Judge:
      Huh? How so?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Aaah!
    
    von Karma:
      Don't just stand there.
    
    von Karma:
      Hurry up and tell the court
      what transpired that day.
    
    von Karma:
      ...With the new information we
      acquired added in, of course.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Huh?
      You mean... By myself...?
    
    Gumshoe:
      You want me to put together
      the scenario all by myself?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Aah!
    
    von Karma:
      ...
    
    Gumshoe:
      Y-Yes, sir! Right away, sir!

    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      During the channeling, the
      defendant saw her chance to
      stab the victim in the chest.
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      Of course, the victim used the
      last of his strength to fight
      back, sir.
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      While the two were fighting,
      the victim took out his gun.
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      The victim took a shot, but
      because they were too close,
      he missed.
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      The defendant then picked up
      on the opening, took the
      victim's gun and ended it...
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
      This scenario you have put
      together does make sense...
    
    Gumshoe:
      Yes, sir.
    
    Judge:
      Well, Mr. Wright?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Just by listening, it does
      make sense...)

      (However, I won't give up
      that easily!)
    
    Judge:
      P-Please refrain from glaring
      at me like that...

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- What Transpired --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      During the channeling, the
      defendant saw her chance to
      stab the victim in the chest.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           There is quite a difference
           in height between Dr. Grey
           and the defendant.
    
         Phoenix:
           Add in body strength, and
           it seems unlikely the defendant
           could have stabbed the victim!
    
         Gumshoe:
           Now that you mention it...
           Yeah, I guess...
    
         von Karma:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         von Karma:
           You think you can get away
           with such flimsy reasoning?
           Mr. Phoenix Wright!
    
         von Karma:
           Maya Fey was in the middle
           of channeling, was she not?
    
         Phoenix:
           ...?
    
         von Karma:
           When channeling with the
           Kurain Channeling Technique,
           the medium physically changes.
    
         von Karma:
           With the nurse's build, the
           defendant could have easily
           been a match for the doctor.
    
         Phoenix:
           (I don't believe it... She
           even studied up on the
           Kurain Channeling Technique!)
    
         von Karma:
           Like I said before...
           I am perfect.
    
         Judge:
           Um... Uh... About what you
           were talking about...
           I didn't quite get it...
    
         Phoenix:
           ...
    
         von Karma:
           ...
    
         Judge:
           Um, n-never mind.
           Let's continue with the
           testimony...
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      Of course, the victim used the
      last of his strength to fight
      back, sir.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           So he was stabbed, but the
           stab wound didn't kill him.
    
         Gumshoe:
           But if you think about the
           blood loss, it was pretty bad.
    
         Phoenix:
           How bad would you say it was?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Actually, I went to give blood
           the other day.
    
         Gumshoe:
           And afterward, I felt a little
           lightheaded and dizzy.
    
         Gumshoe:
           ...I guess the damage was
           maybe... about 10 times the
           dizziness...?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Ack!
    
         von Karma:
           ...
    
         Gumshoe:
           S-Sorry!
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      While the two were fighting,
      the victim took out his gun.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Where in the world did that
           pistol come from?
    
         Gumshoe:
           It looks like the victim,
           Dr. Grey had specifically
           bought it for that day.
    
         Phoenix:
           But a handgun...?
    
         Gumshoe:
           He got it off the black market
           about 2 days before the
           murder.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Why did Dr. Grey bring a
           gun...?)
    
         Phoenix:
           (Was he taking precautions
           against something...?)
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      The victim took a shot, but
      because they were too close,
      he missed.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           So, you're saying that the
           bullet hole in this costume
           was made then?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Sorry, pal, but that's what
           I'd think.
    
         Gumshoe:
           The two of them were already
           fighting when a shot was
           fired.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Maya... I'm really glad you
           weren't hurt...)
    
         von Karma:
           ...
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      The defendant then picked up
      on the opening and took the
      victim's gun and ended it...
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Maya has never fired a gun
           before in her life!
    
         Gumshoe:
           The victim had already taken
           off the safety.
    
         Gumshoe:
           With the safety off, even an
           amateur like you can fire it
           by pulling the trigger.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Even me...? I wonder...?)
    
         von Karma:
           Now do you understand?
    
         von Karma:
           A Von Karma's logic is
           perfect.

    Phoenix:
      (His testimony certainly makes
      us look very bad,)

      (but there's gotta be a
      contradiction in there
      somewhere...)

      to uncover the truth!

    Phoenix:
      Missing the tiny hole on this
      costume...
    
    Phoenix:
      will be the prosecution's
      undoing.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Eh? What do you mean?
    
    Phoenix:
      This little hole has actually
      created a huge hole in your
      testimony!
    
    Judge:
      E-Explain yourself,
      Mr. Wright!
    
    Phoenix:
      You said the two of them were
      fighting when the victim fired
      his gun at point blank.
    
    Phoenix:
      If that were true, then where
      is the gunpowder burn on
      this costume!?
    
    Gumshoe:
      G-Gunpowder... burn?
    
    Phoenix:
      This is what you testified
      earlier:
    
    Phoenix:
      "When something is shot from
      point blank, a burn area is
      left around the bullet hole."
    
    Gumshoe:
      OH!
    
    Phoenix:
      But there is not a single
      trace of gunpowder burn
      on this costume!!
    
    Judge:
      That is a very good point.
    
    Judge:
      And... what exactly does this
      mean?
    
    Phoenix:
      It means that when the shot
      was fired, they were standing
      apart from each other.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
    
    von Karma:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    von Karma:
      I'm disappointed,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
    von Karma:
      You think you can punch a hole
      in my logic with that?
    
    von Karma:
      With wishy-washy thinking
      like that, anyone can explain
      anything away!
    
    Phoenix:
      Then I implore you to disprove
      my line of thinking.
    
    von Karma:
      Let's see...
    
    von Karma:
      In the middle of their fight,
      the victim pushed the
      defendant away.
    
    von Karma:
      And it was then, when they
      were separated, that he fired!
      How was that?
    
    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      As if that was even possible.
    
    Phoenix:
      According to testimony, the
      wound from the stabbing was
      very severe.
    
    Phoenix:
      The victim would not have
      had the strength to push the
      defendant very far after that!
    
    von Karma:
      ...!
    
    von Karma:
      W-Well... Then...
    
    von Karma:
      That's right!
      The defendant must have
      pushed the victim away!
    
    von Karma:
      After stabbing him, she must
      have put some space between
      the doctor and herself.
    
    von Karma:
      And then while she was
      preparing to strike again,
      the doctor took his shot.
    
    von Karma:
      There.
      That sound satisfy even you.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm... That does make an
      awful lot of sense.
    
    Judge:
      What do you think, Mr. Wright?
    
    Phoenix:
      (I must be careful. I can't
      afford to make a mistake
      here!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Concentrate and think!)

    x 
    x Phoenix:
    x   I admit it. Somehow, your
    x   reasoning makes logical
    x   sense.
    x
    x von Karma:
    x   That's it. That's exactly what
    x   I wanted to hear from you,
    x   Mr. Phoenix Wright!

      (There has to be a snag in
      her explanation somewhere!)
    
    Phoenix:
      ("She put some distance
      between them before rushing
      to make the final blow.")
    
    Phoenix:
      ("And when she was about
      to strike, the doctor took his
      shot.")
    
    Phoenix:
      (There must be a piece of
      evidence that contradicts
      this line of thinking!)

    *   more, pal.

    *   so embarrassing...)

    *Present Folding Screen*
    
    Phoenix:
      *TAKE THAT!*
    
    Phoenix:
      This is the piece of evidence
      that destroys your logic.
    
    Judge:
      What is that?
      A folding screen?
    
    Phoenix:
      I would like to point the
      court's attention to the
      "hole" in this folding screen.
    
    von Karma:
      Aaah!
    
    Phoenix:
      It looks like you already know
      what I'm talking about.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Who? Where? What?
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Wright!
      Your explanation, please!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Are these two really that
      clueless...?)
    
    Phoenix:
      The bullet went through the
      defendant's sleeve first, then
      the folding screen.
    
    Phoenix:
      It passed through at a height
      of approximately 8 inches off
      the ground... Which means!
    
    Phoenix:
      When the shot was fired,
      Maya... I mean, the defendant,
    
    Phoenix:
      was not getting ready to
      strike, but was actually
      squatting low to the ground!
    
    Judge:
      Order! Order!
    
    Judge:
      Th-This changes everything!
    
    Phoenix:
      Please look at this diagram
      of the crime scene.
    
    Phoenix:
      The victim, Dr. Grey was
      here when he fired
      the shot.
    
    Phoenix:
      And the bullet hit this
      folding screen.
    
    Phoenix:
      It hit at this location, about
      8 inches off the ground.
    
    Phoenix:
      At this time, the defendant
      was in this area.

    *Present left side of the bullet hole*
    
    Phoenix:
      *TAKE THAT!*
    
    Phoenix:
      She was standing here, near
      the folding screen!
    
    von Karma:
      W-Wait a second!
    
    von Karma:
      We know the defendant was
      close to the ground based on
      the height of the bullet hole.
    
    von Karma:
      But... How can you gauge the
      distance from that!?
    
    von Karma:
      Isn't it possible that the
      defendant was standing
      much closer to the victim?
    
    Phoenix:
      That's impossible.
    
    von Karma:
      B-But why!?
    
    Phoenix:
      You, of all people, should
      know the answer to that
      question, Ms. von Karma.
    
    Phoenix:
      If she were shot from
      somewhere closer, there would
      be gunpowder burns present.
    
    Phoenix:
      However!
    
    Phoenix:
      There is nothing of the sort
      around the bullet hole of this
      costume!
    
    von Karma:
      Aaaaaah!
    
    von Karma:
      C-Curse you, Mr. Phoenix
      Wright! You...!
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
    
    Judge:
      I believe it has now been
      proven that
    
    Judge:
      the defendant was standing
      a ways from the victim when
      she was shot at.
    
    Judge:
      But do you think this has
      changed the defendant's
      situation...?
    
    *** It doesn't change anything. ************

    Phoenix:
      Honestly, Your Honor!
      This changes everything!
    
    Phoenix:
      The prosecution has claimed
      that the defendant was aiming
      to kill by stabbing.
    
    Phoenix:
      If that were true, delivering
      the final strike with the
      knife would be ideal.
    
    Phoenix:
      However! Where and what
      was the defendant doing at
      the time...?
    
    Gumshoe:
      ...Squatting all the way by
      the folding screen...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Exactly.
    
    Phoenix:
      If Maya Fey was the real
      murderer,
    
    Phoenix:
      why would she be by the
      folding screen instead of
      preparing to strike?
    
    von Karma:
      Nnngh...
    
    Judge:
      Upon further consideration, it
      does make very little sense.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Yeah, I figured there had to
      be a reason.
    
    Phoenix:
      Figuring things out and
      proving the logic behind
      everything is YOUR job!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Oof...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Alright! With this, the rest
      of the trial should be in
      the b--)

    von Karma:
      You are such a smart man,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
    von Karma:
      To think that you've been able
      to take a completely hopeless
      case to this point...
    
    von Karma:
      Now I know why papa had a
      tough time with you.
      Mmm, you amuse me...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Uuugh. Of all the things to
      inherit, why did it have to be
      that smarmy smile!?)
    
    von Karma:
      Detective.
    
    von Karma:
      How dare you damage my
      perfect logic!?
    
    Gumshoe:
      H-Huh!?...
      How is it all my fault??
    
    von Karma:
      You can start repairing your
      standing by first removing
      that three-strand "goatee".
    
    von Karma:
      Oh, and rest assured your
      punishment will come later.
    
    Gumshoe:
      ...P-Punishment...
    
    von Karma:
      Well then, Your Honor, I think
      I've had all I can take of
      this Detective's face.
    
    von Karma:
      I think it's time to call in
      the next witness.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Next witness...?
      That's gotta be Lotta!)
    
    Judge:
      Very well.
    
    Judge:
      The court will take a 5 minute
      recess.
    
    Judge:
      After we reconvene, we will
      hear from the next witness.

      Phew, that was a close one.
    
    Maya:
      I know you were giving
      it your all to defend me.
    
    Maya:
      But I could feel the death

    Phoenix:
      I felt like I was pretty
      close to dying myself...
    
    Pearl:
      But you were wonderful out
      there.
    
    Pearl:
      You listened carefully, made

      into believing you.

      Th-Thanks.
      Wait... Tricked??

      That must be the "lawyer's"

    Lotta:
      Mr. Lawyer there broke the
      door down, and we rushed
      into the room.

    Lotta:
      Inside was the dead victim,
      and the defendant, wavin'
      a pistol around.

      I swear, other than those two,
      there was no one else in the

      Aah!
    
    von Karma:
      Does it look like I care?

      Just hurry up and show your
      picture to the court.
    
    Phoenix:
      (The moment of truth.
      What will be in that picture?)

      Umm, let's see here...
      This here's the picture!
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...

      It would certainly seem that
      only the defendant and the
      victim were in that room.

           Anyway, folks, only the

           court, Mr. Phoenix Wright?
           Was it really a gunshot?
    
         Phoenix:
           ...Yes. I think it was
           something that sounded
           like a gunshot...
    
         Judge:
           And why are we here listening
           to the defense testify!?
    
         Phoenix:
           (...And the world becomes just
           a little crueler...)
    
         Lotta:
           I heard a gunshot a long time
           ago, so I know. And I tell ya
           that was a gunshot I heard.
    
         Lotta:
           Now, this -- this is where the
           story heats up!
    
    (3)
    Lotta:
      Mr. Lawyer there broke the
      door down, and we rushed
      into the room.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           So, let me get this straight!
           This "Mr. Lawyer there"
           broke the door down!?
    
         von Karma:
           Honestly, Mr. Phoenix Wright.
           Why don't you tell us what
           happened, then?
    
         Phoenix:
           Um... Yes, Ms. von Karma...
           I broke the door down.
           Sorry.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Why does this feel like an
           inquisition?)
    
         Lotta:
           No need for apologizin'!
           That was great! You're a real
           man!
    
         Judge:
           Oh, really?
           That's something I would've
           liked to see.
    
         Phoenix:
           (The judge is smiling rather
           openly. I'll take that as a 
           good sign...)
    
         von Karma:
           And?
           What did you see once you
           broke in?
    
    (4)
    Lotta:
      Inside was the dead victim,
      and the defendant, wavin'
      a pistol around.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Are you sure it was the
           defendant, Maya Fey!?
    
         Lotta:
           Sure, I'm sure!
    
         Phoenix:
           (Lotta seems awful confident
           in her testimony...)

    Phoenix:
      W-What!?
    
    *klik*
    
    Phoenix:
      Lotta! At a time like this!?
    
    Lotta:
      Times like this are perfect
      for snapping up shots!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Mia:
      You see... There is one final
      piece of the puzzle.
    
    Phoenix:
      Mia...?
    
    Mia:
      Question Lotta one more
      time, Phoenix.
    
    Mia:
      I don't know if she's doing it
      subconsciously or on purpose,
      but...
    
    Mia:
      she's not testifying
      truthfully.
    
    Judge:
      Now then, this court would
      like to end the cross-
      examination period.
    
    Phoenix:
      *HOLD IT!*
    
    Phoenix:
      Please wait, Your Honor!
    
    Phoenix:
      The defense would like to
      request that the witness
      testify one more time.
    
    Judge:
      Overruled.
    
    Judge:
      I'm afraid you're too late,
      Mr. Wright. The cross-
      examination has already ended.
    
    Judge:
      Furthermore, any unrelated
      ques-
    
    von Karma:
      It's fine.
      I'll allow another testimony.
    
    von Karma:
      A Von Karma's case is
      perfect.
      Absolutely flawless.
    
    von Karma:
      And what better time than
      this for you to see that.
    
    Judge:
      B-But... I mean...
      I have some place I must
      go after this...
    
    Judge:
      Mmph!
      A-Al-Alright! I'll allow it!
    
    Judge:
      Ms. Hart! Hurry and give us
      another testimony!
    
    Lotta:
      Well... heck... What am I
      supposed to talk about?
    
    Phoenix:
      Please tell us once more what
      happened when you burst into
      the Channeling Chamber.
    
    Lotta:
      OK! You got it!
    
    Mia:
      See, you got through to the
      judge somehow, right?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Well, actually it was
      Von Karma's whip that
      got through to him...)

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- Witness' Account, Pt.2 --
    
    (1)
    Lotta:
      When we broke into that
      room, all I could focus on
      was Maya.
    
    (2)
    Lotta:
      I was... uh, kinda scared of
      the dead body, so I didn't
      take a good look at it.
    
    (3)
    Lotta:
      I'm really bad when it comes
      to blood and ghosts and stuff.
    
    (4)
    Lotta:
      But I still managed to point
      my camera at Maya and take
      a shot!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Nothing sounds different
      from before...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Some parts of her testimony
      were very vague.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (I should press her on those
      sections!)
    
    von Karma:
      Struggle all you like as you
      taste the bitterness of your
      defeat.
    
    von Karma:
      Well, amuse me with your
      useless questions, Mr. Phoenix
      Wright. I'm waiting...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- Witness' Account, Pt.2 --
    
    (1)
    Lotta:
      When we broke into that
      room, all I could focus on
      was Maya.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           So, what did she look like?
    
         Lotta:
           Ya know, she looked almost
           like a different person.
    
         Judge:
           A... A different person?
    
         von Karma:
           She may have seemed like a
           different person, however, she
           was still Maya Fey.
    
         von Karma:
           We have already made
           that point abundantly
           clear!
    
         Judge:
           Yes, that is true...
    
         Judge:
           Well, then, Ms. Hart.
           Did you happen to
           see anything else?
    
    (2)
    Lotta:
      I was... uh, kinda scared of
      the dead body, so I didn't
      take a good look at it.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Then perhaps that body was
           not Dr. Grey's at all!
    
         Lotta:
           Eh!?
           W-Well...
           I reckon that's possible...
    
         von Karma:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         von Karma:
           If the body inside that room
           was not that of Dr. Grey,
    
         von Karma:
           then whose body was it,
           Mr. Phoenix Wright!?
    
         Phoenix:
           Well, what if it was that of
           Maya Fey after the channeling?
           Or maybe --
    
         Phoenix:
           Oww!
    
         von Karma:
           Foolish fool spouting foolish
           foolishness, just as I expect
           of a foolish fool such as you.
    
         von Karma:
           If that were the case, then
           that would mean that Maya
           Fey is, in fact, dead.
    
         von Karma:
           And that would make the
           defendant's chair quite a
           lonely place, wouldn't it!?
    
         Phoenix:
           (Urk... Sorry, Maya...)
    
         Lotta:
           Are y'all done here?
           Can I continue?
    
    (3)
    Lotta:
      I'm really bad when it comes
      to blood and ghosts and stuff.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           And even knowing that, you
           still persist in being a
           paranormal photographer?
    
         Lotta:
           That's why I'm getting out of
           this here business.
    
         Lotta:
           This gal's gonna get the dirt
           on the stars and be a tabloid
           photographer from now on!
    
         Phoenix:
           (She goes through jobs faster
           than a baby through diapers.)
    
         Phoenix:
           Wah!
    
         von Karma:
           Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
         von Karma:
           Would it kill you to stay on
           topic for a change?
    
         Judge:
           Well? Would it, Mr. Wright?
    
         Phoenix:
           (Nice, tag-teamed in stereo.
           Guess I should be grateful
           it's not in 5.1...)
    
    (4)
    Lotta:
      But I still managed to point
      my camera at Maya and take
      a shot!
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Two, right?
    
         Lotta:
           T-Two what?
    
         Phoenix:
           Two shots.
    
         Phoenix:
           You took two shots.

    Mia:
      There must be something
      we can use in her testimony
      just now.

      We must find it!
      At all costs...

      submitted as evidence!

      picture you have been
      withholding!?
    
    Lotta:
      No, no, no!
      You've got it all wrong!
      It's not me!
    
    Lotta:
      I-I didn't mean anything bad!
      I know I can be a little mean,
      but I ain't evil!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Well, at least she knows
      herself...)
    
    Judge:
      Then why have you not shown
      this "other picture" to this
      court yet?
    
    Lotta:
      Well, ain't it obvious!?
      That prosecutor woman told
      me to shut my trap about it!
    
    Phoenix:
      W-What!?
    
    Phoenix:

      Von Karma!!

      critical evidence...!

    Judge:
      Ms. von Karma.
      Would you care to explain
      yourself to this court?
    
    von Karma:
      I thought this picture was not
      important, and thus, felt no
      need to submit it. That's all.
    
    Phoenix:
      H-How could you think...!?
    
    von Karma:
      The pictures were more or
      less the same, so why bother
      with the second?
    
    von Karma:
      I mean, it's just so much more
      trouble than it's worth for me
      to submit this as evidence.
    
    Phoenix:
      "M-More trouble that it's
      worth!?" How... How can you
      say that!?
    
    von Karma:
      If you want to see it that
      badly, I'll submit it.

    Judge:
      Wh-What is...?
      What is this picture!?
    
    von Karma:
      It's obviously the second
      picture the witness took that
      day at the scene of the crime.
    
    von Karma:
      Well, it's a little off
      center. But that's what you
      get with a nervous amateur.
    
    Judge:
      Well, I think the important
      point here is the person
      in this picture!
    
    Judge:
      This is most definitely
      NOT Maya Fey!
    
    Judge:
      What is the meaning of this!?
    
    Phoenix:
      (This might be the break
      I was looking for...)

    von Karma:
      Your Honor. I would like for
      you to take a look at this
      picture.
    
    von Karma:
      This was taken yesterday
      at the Detention Center's
      Visitor's Room.
    
    von Karma:
      This is Mr. Phoenix Wright
      and the defendant, Maya
      Fey during his visit...
    
    Judge:
      Maya Fey?
    
    Judge:
      But... Isn't this a totally
      different person!?
    
    von Karma:
      She looks this way because
      she is obviously in the middle
      of channeling a spirit!
    
    Judge:
      It's unbelievable...
      That she can...
    
    von Karma:
      However, it is true.
    
    von Karma:
      When Maya Fey is in that
      state, she physically changes
      into the person she's calling!
    
    Judge:
      ...
    
    Mia:
      I wonder if she knows
      what she's doing...
    
    Phoenix:
      (M-Mia!)
    
    Mia:
      Taking pictures of someone
      during a private visit is
      illegal.
    
    Mia:
      That picture can't be
      submitted as evidence.
    
    von Karma:
      ...
    
    von Karma:
      Obviously, this picture is
      illegal.
    
    von Karma:
      But I never intended to submit
      it as evidence in the first
      place!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Wh-What is she...?)
    
    von Karma:
      From the moment I showed
      this picture to the court,
      this case became all mine.
    
    von Karma:
      After all, this image has now
      been forever burned into the
      judge's mind.
    
    Judge:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      (I... I don't have even a
      single witty line...)
    
    Mia:
      It looks like we've been had.
    
    Judge:
      I don't claim to understand
      this, and I still cannot
      believe it...
    
    Judge:
      Are you saying that this
      person... this person is
      the defendant, Maya Fey!?
    
    Phoenix:
      (If I give up here, the trial
      will end!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (But... If I slip up and say
      something wrong, it will
      cost me...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Is there any way I can
      prove that the person in
      this picture is not Maya!?)
    
    xxx I can't prove it. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    x Phoenix:

    x   silent on this one.
    x
    x Phoenix:
    x   ...Yes... Your Honor...
    x
    x von Karma:
    x   And to think. I even gave you
    x   this chance to prove your
    x   point for free.
    x
    x von Karma:

    x   Well, then. I believe we have

      "Should be there"...?
    
    von Karma:
      Aaaaah!

      There was a bullet hole in

      And what "incompetent
      fools"...?
    
    von Karma:
      If those fools down at the
      precinct hadn't missed the
      bullet hole,
    
    von Karma:
      I would have gotten a report
      about it.
    
    von Karma:
      As I didn't, I could not have

      the picture -- everything!)

      But you can't prove that.
    
    Mia:
      Franziska von Karma's idea
      of a "perfect case" is quite
      fascinating, don't you think?
    
    von Karma:
      Your Honor.
      You need not worry.
    
    von Karma:
      If you must assign a penalty,
      I'll personally make sure that
      detective gets what's coming.

      I'm sure there will be a great
      gnashing of teeth at the
      next salary discussion.

      (Poor Gumshoe...)
    
    Judge:
      In any case, this is a very
      big problem!
    
    Judge:
      When the defendant was taken
      into custody, her costume had
      a bullet hole in its sleeve.

      would appear that right after
      the shooting, there was none!

      The judge is confused by
      this strange twist of events.

      This is your chance, Phoenix!
      Load all you've got into this
      one shot, alright!?

    * Phoenix:
    *   I'm sorry, but I simply can't.
    *
    * von Karma:
    *   Y-You see!?
    *
    * von Karma:
    *   And the reason is quite
    *   simple. Because there is
    *   no explanation. That's why!
    *
    * Judge:
    *   Hmm...
    *   As I thought. Another big
    *   waste of this court's time.
    *
    * Mia:
    *   Phoenix! You can't just give
    *   up like that!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   But Mia!
    *
    * Mia:
    *   Rethink things one more
    *   time! There has to be an
    *   explanation!
    *
    * von Karma:
    *   I'm already "perfect".
    *   So of course, my conclusions
    *   are also "perfect".

    Phoenix:
      *TAKE THAT!*
    
    Phoenix:
      Ms. Hart.
      Do you remember this key?
    
    Lotta:
      Um... Well, I've seen it...
      Hey! That's the Channeling
      Chamber key, right?
    
    Lotta:
      Before the channeling started,
      Maya locked the door from
      the inside with that...
    
    von Karma:
      The defendant herself locked
      the door...?
    
    Lotta:
      Yeah! That's why we all
      couldn't get the door open.
    
    Lotta:
      That key's the only one of
      its kind, after all.
    
    Judge:
      Oh... One of a kind, you say?
    
    von Karma:
      ...!
    
    von Karma:
      Wait...
      Mr. Phoenix Wright...
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes?
      (It looks like she's catching
      on...)
    
    von Karma:
      I'm afraid to ask, but...
    
    von Karma:
      Why is that key currently
      in your possession?
    
    Judge:
      Huh? What do you mean?
    
    Phoenix:
      If Maya Fey locked herself
      in, then the key should have
      been with her.
    
    Judge:
      Yes, agreed.
    
    Phoenix:
      However, she did not have
      the key at the time of her
      arrest!
    
    Lotta:
      Aah!
      Well, ain't that a kick!
    
    Lotta:
      So how come you're holdin'
      it!?
    
    Phoenix:
      I got this as a present from
      a certain little girl.
    
    Phoenix:
      And that little girl was
      nowhere near the crime
      scene at the time!
    
    von Karma:
      Th-Th-That's preposterous!
    
    Phoenix:
      This means that Maya Fey
      must have left the room!
    
    Phoenix:
      If she had not, then I would
      not be holding this key
      you see before you!
    
    von Karma:
      N-Nooooooo!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      It seems we have come to an
      impasse.
    
    Judge:
      This picture has clearly
      captured the face of the
      murderer.
    
    Judge:
      However, is this person the
      defendant or not?
    
    Judge:
      The defense is arguing that
      this person is not the
      defendant.
    
    Judge:
      Furthermore, as proof, this
      key has been submitted as
      evidence.
    
    Judge:
      Ms. von Karma.
    
    von Karma:
      How. Can. This. Be!?
    
    Judge:
      At this point in time,
      a verdict on the defendant
      is not possible.
    
    von Karma:
      My perfect case!
      How is there a flaw
      in my perfect case!
    
    von Karma:
      Don't think you've won yet,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright!
    
    von Karma:
      I am a prodigy!
      I have never lost a case!
    
    von Karma:
      And I don't intend to lose
      here in this courtroom to
      a fool like you!
    
    von Karma:
      I don't care what I have to
      do... I will get my guilty
      verdict!
    
    Judge:
      That's enough!
      If you would like to
      continue, do so in the lobby.
    
    Judge:
      Court will reconvene tomorrow
      at 10 AM.
    
    Judge:
      That is all.
      Court is adjourned.

      Woooow!
      That was you Pearly!?
      You summoned my sis!?
    
    Pearl:
      Yes. I felt I had no choice...
    
    Maya:
      Great going, Pearly!
      I knew you were special!
      Hey, Nick, did you know?
    
    Phoenix:
      (...Umm, yeah. It's not like
      anyone else in there could
      have done that.)
    
    Maya:
      Hmm, Nick...
    
    Maya:
      I know you're trying really
      hard and all, but...
    
    Maya:
      I really don't remember ever
      leaving that room.
    
    Pearl:
      And I don't think that
      a third person...
    
    Pearl:
      could have gone into
      that room.
    
    Phoenix:
      Y-Yeah...
    
    Phoenix:
      Well, at least we have until
      tomorrow to figure things
      out.
    
    Phoenix:
      Like, what happened in that
      room, for instance.
    
    Maya:
      Yeah.
      I'm counting on you!
    
    Pearl:
      Ah...
      I envy the two of you...
    
    Maya:
      Oh, by the way, Nick.
    
    Maya:
      Do you think you could
      take Pearly back home for
      me?
    
    Phoenix:
      Sure.
    
    Phoenix:
      Alright, Pearls. You ready to
      go buy some tickets?
    
    Pearl:
      Huh? A tik-ket?

    Pearl:
      Thank you very much for
      bringing me home, Mr. Nick.
    
    Phoenix:
      You're welcome. I had to come
      and look into a few things
      here today anyway.
    
    Pearl:
      Um...
      I thought about this a little.
    
    Phoenix:
      ?
    
    Pearl:
      If Mystic Maya didn't kill
      that nice man...
    
    Phoenix:
      She definitely didn't!
    
    Pearl:
      Yes, of course.
    
    Pearl:
      But if she didn't...
      Then someone else did, right?
    
    Pearl:
      Um, that "murderer" person!
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes, Pearls.
    
    Pearl:
      Oh... I see...
    
    Phoenix:
      (I wonder what's wrong...
      She seems sad...)

    *   So... that's a lawyer's Sacred
    *   Treasure?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Huh?
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   I feel like it has a
    *   mysterious power,
    *   just like my Magatama...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Hmm, well, I guess I can let
    *   her think what she wants on
    *   this one...)

    *** Folding Screen *************************
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   So you like things about
    *   spirit channeling too?
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   The Kurain Sacred Writings
    *   are on this folding screen.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Oh? 
    *   Is that what's written on it?
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   There are six lines to the
    *   Sacred Writings.
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Cleanse thy soul...
    *   Open the door to the spiritual
    *   realm beyond...
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Converse with the departed...
    *   ...
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Cast on thyself Protection...
    *   Maintain the spell...
    *   Release the spell...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (So basically, this has
    *   nothing to do with the
    *   murder... Well, that's super.)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Black Key ******************************
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   About this key, Pearls...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   You found it on the day of the
    *   murder, right?
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Yes.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Now, where you found this
    *   key is very important.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   So, please tell me, Pearl.
    *   Where did you find this?
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Um... I found it in the
    *   incinerator...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   The incinerator?
    *   (Hmm, is she talking about
    *   the one in the garden?)
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   The door on it was a little
    *   open, so I took a peek...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   When was that?
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   It was after the channeling,
    *   when everyone was in a panic.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Hmm...
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Um...
    *   Mr. Nick?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   ...?
    *   Yes?
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Are you going to tell my
    *   mother?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Huh? You mean, tell Morgan
    *   what you did?
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Yes. If she finds out that I
    *   was playing in the left-over
    *   trash,
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   I'll get a spanking.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   ...Ah, gotcha.
    *   Well, let's keep it a secret
    *   from her then, alright?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Hmm, the incinerator, huh?
    *   Sounds like a good place to
    *   search next...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Knife **********************************
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   I've seen this knife before.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Really!?
    *   Where!?
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   M-My kitchen...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Oh... That's right...
    *   This knife belongs to
    *   the Feys...)
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   I'll skin and cut up some
    *   apples for you later,

    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It looks like something with

    +   I'm sure this wasn't here

      Like, that urn over there.

    + Phoenix:
    +   And this key was also
    +   found in there.
    +
    + Phoenix:

    +   are a bunch of cracks.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   But I guess maybe the spirit
    +   could live in the space
    +   between the cracks...
    +

      Who started the Kurain

      Eh?
    
    Pearl:
      Um, it was Mystic Ami...

      That's right. And how do you
      spell her name? Do you know?
    
    Pearl:
      How do I spell her name?
      Um... I don't know...
    
    Phoenix:
      It's spelled "A-M-I".
    
    Pearl:
      *gasp!*
    
    Phoenix:
      I thought it was a little odd
      when I saw "I AM" written

    Pearl:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      And that's how I knew that
      someone must have broken
      this urn.
    
    Phoenix:
      And made a mistake in
      spelling when they put it
      back together again...

    Phoenix:
      Wh-What are you going on
      about?
    
    Phoenix:
      And as for "following" or
      "chasing" or whatever it is,
      isn't that what YOU'RE doing!?
    
    Lotta:
      Um, well, ya see...

      Well, yer not exactly a real

    Mia:
      I was really worried so I

      doing.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...You might get caught on
      film again...
    
    Mia:
      There are certain risks you
      have to take in life, or in my

    Mia:
      Anyway, how are you doing?
      Have you found anything
      useful?

      Um, only a little. I think I'm

    Phoenix:
      (...So, this is where Ini was
      hospitalized...)
    
    ? ? ?:
      Hmm, yes... Are you here to
      visit a patient? Hmm...
    
    Phoenix:
      Ah, yes...
      Are you a doctor here...?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Hmm, yes...
      I'm Director Hotti...
      Hoh, hoh.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Ack! I didn't think I'd be
      speaking with the Director
      himself...)
    
    Hotti:
      Hmm, yes...? So what can
      I help you with? Uh, huh...
    
    Phoenix:
      I'd like to ask you a few
      questions about Ms. Ini Miney.
    
    Hotti:
      Hmm? Ms. Miney? Ms. Ini Miney?
      ...Hmm... Yes... Hmm...
      OH! Her!
    
    Hotti:
      Ah, it's too bad.
    
    Hotti:
      I'll tell you something. That
      girl left here a long time
      ago.
    
    Nurse:
      Here you are!
      Sir!
    
    Phoenix:
      ?
    
    Nurse:
      You know you shouldn't be up
      and about! Come on, it's back
      to your room with you!
    
    Hotti:
      Ah, Sweet'ums! Calm down,
      calm down. Don't be so harsh
      to an old man like me.
    
    Nurse:
      Don't you dare start that
      "Sweet'ums" thing with me!
    
    Nurse:
      If you don't behave, you'll
      get yourself tossed out of
      this hospital!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Wow. I didn't think nurses
      could be this direct or
      forceful towards their boss.)
    
    Nurse:
      Come now. Be a good boy and
      give me the Director's white
      lab coat!
    
    Hotti:
      OK, OK. I got it.
      I. Got. It.
      Hmm, yes...

      Don't "Hmm, yes" me.
      Who in the world are you?
    
    Hotti:
      I'm Director Hotti.
      Hoh, hoh.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      (The nurse went off some-
      where... Oh the inhumanity.
      Only person I can talk to...)

    + Phoenix:
    +   This must be the waiting area.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's got the feeling of one
    +   and there are sofas lined
    +   up...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   but I don't see all that many
    +   patients.
    +
    + Hotti:
    +   Hmm, yes... Well, it's the
    +   quality, not quantity that
    +   counts. Uh huh...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (What in the world did that
    +   have to do with anything...?)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Door at the back +++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (I wonder where that door
    +   way down there leads to...?)
    +
    + Hotti:
    +   Oh, that's the X-ray room.
    +   Hmm, yes...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   H-H-How did you know
    +   what I was thinking!?
    +
    + Hotti:
    +   Hmm, yes... Well, it's...
    +   Because that's the X-ray
    +   room... Uh huh, yes...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (There is something very
    +   peculiar about this guy...
    +   Because I know it's not me...)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Limping patient ++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This patient is undergoing
    +   rehabilitation.
    +
    + Hotti:
    +   And look at that strained face
    +   twisting in all those ways...
    +   and that oily sweat... hmm...
    +
    + Hotti:
    +   His whole body is swaying back
    +   and forth, wobble-wobble, like
    +   he's about to fall. Hmm, yes.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Hey! Don't just cut into my
    +   monologue like that!
    +   I'm explaining things here!
    +
    + Hotti:
    +   Ah, sorry. Hmm, yes...
    +   Most sorry...
    +   Yes... Uh, huh...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Reception area +++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This is the clinic's reception
    +   desk, but it doesn't look like
    +   there's anyone at the counter.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   On the wall is this month's
    +   "Word to the Wise":
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   "Do something in vain,
    +   and your only reward is
    +   tiredness."
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Hmm, not exactly the best
    +   thing to be telling your
    +   patients, is it?
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   ...Yeah...

      You mean, it's from Maya's
      costume that she was wearing
      at the time of the murder?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes.
    
    Mia:
      But when Maya was arrested,
      she was wearing her costume.
    
    Phoenix:
      That just means someone
      changed her clothes.
    
    Mia:
      Changed her clothes?
      But why...?
    
    Phoenix:
      I don't know why.
    
    Phoenix:
      But... There is only one
      person who could've
      done that.
    
    Mia:
      The one person who was taking
      care of Maya... My aunt.
    
    Mia:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      What's that look mean?
    
    Mia:
      Your argument is too flimsy.
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh?
    
    Mia:
      You have no proof that this
      piece of cloth is actually
      from Maya's costume.
    
    Phoenix:
      But... this blood...
    
    Mia:
      And do you know whose blood
      that is at this point in time?
      You don't, do you?
    
    Mia:
      Do you have any proof that
      piece of cloth is from Maya's
      costume?

    *Present Black Key*
    
    Phoenix:
      *TAKE THAT!*
    
    Phoenix:
      I think this is the proof
      you're looking for.
    
    Mia:
      ...The key to the Channeling
      Chamber, huh?
    
    Phoenix:
      At the beginning of the
      channeling, Maya had
      possession of this key.
    
    Phoenix:
      And yet, somehow, it magically
      ended up in the incinerator
      in the center garden.
    
    Mia:
      ...You're right.
    
    Phoenix:
      And this is what Maya told me.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
      "While I was channeling, the
      key was sitting inside my
      sleeve."
    
      And both this key and the
      piece of cloth were found
      inside the incinerator.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      Which means that this piece
      of cloth was a part of Maya's
      costume.
    
    Mia:
      It would certainly seem that
      way...
    
    Phoenix:
      Someone changed her into a
      different set of clothes.
    
    Phoenix:
      And then, burned the costume
      she was wearing in the
      incinerator.
    
    Phoenix:
      There is only one person who
      could've done that.
    
    Mia:
      The one person who was taking
      care of Maya... My aunt.
    
    Phoenix:
      Exactly!

    Mia:
      You did very well, Phoenix.
    
    Phoenix:
      Thank you.
    
    Mia:
      As long as you have those
      two pieces of evidence, you
      can cast suspicion on my aunt.
    
    Mia:
      However.
    
    Phoenix:
      H-However?
    
    Mia:
      Like I said in the beginning,
      my aunt has an alibi.
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah... She was with us
      the whole time...
    
    Mia:
      Here's my final question.
      You don't have to present
      solid proof of this for me.
    
    Mia:
      But I want to know. If my aunt
      is the culprit, then how did
      she commit the murder?
    
    Phoenix:
      How she did it, huh...?
    
    Mia:
      I want to hear your thoughts.
    
    Mia:
      In order for my aunt to murder
      Dr. Grey, who or what did she
      need...?

    Maya:
      Um... Nick...
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah?
    
    Maya:
      Did you know that Von Karma's
      daughter is only 18...
      Just like me...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, yeah.
      ...Why?
    
    Maya:
      I was just thinking about
      how strong she is...
    
    Maya:
      I mean, she's been in Germany
      all this time all by herself,
      and she's so grown up!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Yeah, and I'm sure she
      felt a lot of pressure from
      her father's reputation.
    
    Maya:
      ...And then you look at me,
      and, well...
    
    Maya:
      I'm the daughter of the
      Master, but I'm still just
      a little girl.
    
    Maya:
      And on top of that, I'm the
      suspect in a murder trial.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Um... But I think you're
      really strong too, Maya, for
      all you've gone through...)

    Pearl:
      The two of you look like
      you're doing well today.
      I'm happy for you!
    
    Maya:
      Hey!
      Morning, Pearly!
    
    Pearl:
      You'll be safe today, Mystic
      Maya!
    
    Maya:
      Huh?
      What do you mean?
    
    Pearl:
      My mother is coming today
      to show her support!
    
    Maya:
      Y-Yeah...
      Yeah! That's right, Pearly!
    
    Phoenix:
      Hey, Pearls...
    
    Pearl:
      ...?
      Yes, Mr. Nick?
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, do you think you could do
      me a big favor? Could you
      channel Mia today too?
    
    Pearl:
      Huh? ...I was sort of hoping
      to sit in the audience today
      and watch...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Please. It's very important
      to me. I don't feel confident
      enough without her help...
    
    Pearl:
      Mr. Nick!
      That's enough!
    
    Pearl:
      You can't show weakness in
      front of the person you love!
    
    Maya:
      P-Pearly!
      N-Not this again...
    
    Phoenix:
      Please, can you do this
      for us, Pearls?
    
    Pearl:
      Um... Alright. I'll do it.
      I'll do it for Mystic Maya's
      sake.
    
    Pearl:
      See you later, then!
      I'll leave you two to
      your alone time!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Phew, thank goodness.
    
    Maya:
      Nick?
    
    Phoenix:
      This way, Pearls won't be able
      to see today's trial...

    Courtroom No. 2
    
    Judge:
      Court is now in session for
      the trial of Maya Fey.
    
    Phoenix:
      The defense is ready, Your
      Honor.
    
    von Karma:
      Let's start already.
    
    von Karma:
      Mr. Phoenix Wright.
      I look forward to tonight's
      news with great joy.
    
    von Karma:
      The image of your defeated
      face will be transmitted
      all over the world!
    
    Mia:
      All over the world, huh?
      Sounds like you've made quite
      a name for yourself, Phoenix.
    
    von Karma:
      Don't be foolish, you foolish
      fool wearing the foolishly
      foolish clothes.
    
    von Karma:
      The famous one is me!
    
    von Karma:
      I'm the prodigy who has never
      lost a case since becoming a
      prosecutor five years ago.
    
    von Karma:
      Naturally, the world's eyes
      are on me, as I conduct my
      first trial in this country!
    
    Mia:
      Uh, huh...
      That's nice, Ms. von Karma.
    
    von Karma:
      Hmph.
      Glad to see you're in such
      good "spirits" today, Ms. Fey.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Uhh... It's true what they
      say... Women really are scary
      when they fight... *gulp*)
    
    Judge:
      Now then. A very interesting
      theory was presented during
      yesterday's session.
    
    von Karma:
      That the defendant could have
      left the Channeling Chamber,
      correct?
    
    Judge:
      Yes.
      And this key is proof of that.
    
    Judge:
      This key, the only key to the
      Channeling Chamber, was not
      where it should have been.
    
    von Karma:
      Your Honor, I would like to
      say one thing before we begin.
    
    Judge:
      A-Alright...
      Let's hear it.
    
    von Karma:
      The prosecution has determined
      that from the time of the
      murder to the time of arrest,
    
    von Karma:
      the defendant did indeed leave
      the room at one point.
    
    Phoenix:
      Wh-What!?
    
    Judge:
      But... Ms. von Karma!
    
    Judge:
      Then... How do you explain
      this picture?
    
    Judge:
      Are you saying then, that the
      person in this picture is not
      the defendant...?
    
    von Karma:
      I never said that wasn't the
      defendant.
    
    Judge:
      Th-Then what is the meaning
      of this...?
    
    von Karma:
      All I am saying is that Maya
      Fey, after killing the victim,
      exited the room.
    
    von Karma:
      And I believe that is when
      she dropped this key.
    
    Judge:
      Can you substantiate your
      claim?
    
    von Karma:
      Isn't that what I'm here for?
    
    von Karma:
      The prosecution would like to
      call the defendant's aunt,
      Morgan Fey, to the stand.
    
    Mia:
      ...Just as I suspected.
      Aunt Morgan...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Poor Mia... She seems really
      torn by this...)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    von Karma:
      Witness.
      Name and occupation.
    
    Morgan:
      My name is Morgan Fey,
      and I am a spirit medium,
      in a manner of speaking...
    
    Judge:
      I'm sorry, but what do you
      mean, "in a manner of
      speaking"...?
    
    Judge:
      Aaah!
    
    von Karma:
      I don't think anyone really
      cares.
    
    von Karma:
      Now then, after the murder
      took place, you kept watch
      over the defendant, correct?
    
    Morgan:
      Yes, that is correct.
    
    Morgan:
      I performed the Spirit
      Severing Technique
      on Mystic Maya then.
    
    Judge:
      S-Spirit Severing Technique?
    
    Morgan:
      A technique to remove a spirit
      from a body and send it back
      to the other world. That is...
    
    Judge:
      Yes...?
      That is...?
    
    Judge:
      Mmfph!
    
    von Karma:
      You. Be quiet.
    
    von Karma:
      Now, witness.
    
    von Karma:
      Something happened while
      you were performing this
      technique, correct?
    
    Morgan:
      ...Yes, that is correct.
    
    Phoenix:
      Wh-What in the world
      could've...!?
    
    Morgan:
      Mystic Maya... She escaped
      from the room...
    
    Judge:
      Wh-What!?
    
    von Karma:
      And here we come to the
      heart of the matter.
    
    von Karma:
      Maya Fey, while in a possessed
      state, managed to escape from
      the Channeling Chamber!
    
    Judge:
      Order! Order! Order!
    
    Judge:
      Ms. Fey! Please testify to
      this court what happened
      during that time!
    
    Morgan:
      Your Honor, I will try
      my best...
    
    Mia:
      I think someone just upped
      the ante on this trial...

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- Maya's Escape --
    
    (1)
    Morgan:
      After we heard the gunshots,
      those two broke the door
      open and entered the Chamber.
    
    (2)
    Morgan:
      I requested that Mr. Wright
      and the other lady please
      contact the police.
    
    (3)
    Morgan:
      A pistol was hanging from
      Mystic Maya's hand and
      she was in a daze...
    
    (4)
    Morgan:
      Then, quite suddenly, she
      thrusted me away from herself
      and escaped from the room.
    
    (5)
    Morgan:
      With great strength, she hit
      the base of my neck and
      I fainted for a short while...
    
    (6)
    Morgan:
      I'm afraid I have no knowledge
      of where she went after that.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      Why have you hidden this
      until now!?
    
    Morgan:
      I... I did not wish to cause
      more trouble for Mystic
      Maya.
    
    Morgan:
      However... I must correct
      falsities when they arise.
    
    von Karma:
      That's right.
      She is simply correcting
      a falsity, Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Why is she making it a point
      to take a stab at me...
      Never mind.)
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Wright, your cross-
      examination, please.
    
    Mia:
      My aunt is a very smart and
      sly person.
    
    Mia:
      It's going to be hard for us
      to find a crack in her
      testimony...

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- Maya's Escape --
    
    (1)
    Morgan:
      After we heard the gunshots,
      those two broke the door
      open and entered the Chamber.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Just now, you said, "those
           two." Who were the two people
           you were referring to?
    
         Morgan:
           I was referring to that
           foreign lady and yourself,
           good sir.
    
         Phoenix:
           Um, Lotta's not a foreigner...
           despite how she talks...
    
         Morgan:
           Oh, is that so?
    
         Morgan:
           I'm sorry...
    
         Morgan:
           I simply could not understand
           her atrocious English, not to
           mention she looked awful!
    
         Phoenix:
           (I can already see people in
           the heartland gearing up for
           a riot...)
    
         Morgan:
           In any case, I have already
           sent the repair bill to your
           office, Mr. Wright.
    
         Phoenix:
           Oh, uh, thanks.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
           What did you do after that,
           Ms. Fey?
    
    (2)
    Morgan:
      I requested that Mr. Wright
      and the other lady please
      contact the police.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Was it really necessary to
           have two people do something
           so simple as call the police?
    
         Phoenix:
           If there was a possibility of
           escape, then one of us should
           have stayed behind!
    
         Judge:
           Hmm, yes.
           That is a very good point.
    
         Morgan:
           At that time, I, myself, was a
           little confused.
    
         Morgan:
           On top of which, there was
           another...
    
         Judge:
           Another what, madam?
    
         Morgan:
           Oh, it's nothing.
           No need to concern yourself.
    
         Phoenix:
           (I want to hear the end of
           that sentence...)

         * Phoenix:

         *
         * Judge:

         *   of you, Ms. Fey.
         *
         * Phoenix:

         *   have a good impression of
         *   her and a bad one of us...)
         *
         * Mia:
         *   Looks like she caught us
         *   napping.
         *   That's my aunt for you...

         * Judge:

    Morgan:
      A pistol was hanging from
      Mystic Maya's hand and
      she was in a daze...
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           During our investigation,
           you stated that you struck
           the defendant on the head,
    
         Phoenix:
           and this strike caused Maya
           to lose conciousness. Do
           you stand by this statement?
    
         Morgan:
           I'm afraid I don't.
           The statement I gave you
           was a lie...
    
         Phoenix:
           ...!
    
         Phoenix:
           B-But why would you lie
           about something like that!?
    
         Morgan:
           It is very painful for me to
           say this, however...
    
         von Karma:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         von Karma:
           The witness was lying
           to cover for the defendant.
    
         Phoenix:
           (She was... covering for
           Maya...?)
    
         *** Question further ***********************

         *
         * Morgan:
         *   Well, yes... It was only later
         *   that I was informed of what
         *   had occurred.
         *
         * Morgan:
         *   That the renegade Mystic
         *   Maya had done something

    Morgan:
      Then, quite suddenly, she
      thrusted me away from herself
      and escaped from the room.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Was it really that easy for
           her to escape from you?
    
         Morgan:
           I'm ashamed to admit to
           such a thing, however, yes...
    
         Phoenix:
           But you are physically
           larger and stronger than
           the defendant.
    
         Phoenix:
           There is no way she could have
           escaped from you so easily...
    
         von Karma:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         von Karma:
           Have you forgotten already,
           Mr. Phoenix Wright? What about
           this picture!?
    
         von Karma:
           Remember that at the time,
           the defendant was not
           physically "Maya Fey".
    
         Phoenix:
           ...Ack!
    
         Judge:
           Hmm... Growing old is such a
           mysterious thing.
           Trust me, I know first-hand.
    
         Morgan:
           Basically, Mystic Maya's
           body was still that of the
           nurse she had called.
    
         Phoenix:
           But if she had run away,
           wouldn't you have given
           chase right away!?
    
         Morgan:
           Well, yes, I would have...
           however...
    
    (5)
    Morgan:
      With great strength, she hit
      the base of my neck and
      I fainted for a short while...
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           You fainted...?
    
         Morgan:
           I became dizzy, and then
           collapsed onto the floor.
    
         Judge:
           How long were you
           unconscious?
    
         Morgan:
           I... I'm not sure.
           About ten minutes, perhaps.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
    
         Judge:
           And the defendant almost
           certainly went somewhere
           in that time...
    
         von Karma:
           Happy?
           Witness, elaborate on that
           point for us.
    
    (6)
    Morgan:
      I'm afraid I have no knowledge
      of where she went after that.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Is that because you were
           unconscious?
    
         Morgan:
           Why, yes...
    
         Phoenix:
           (Great, well, now what...?)
    
         *** Question further ***********************
         *
         * Phoenix:
         *   So while you were unconscious,

         *   where the defendant went?
         *
         * Morgan:
         *   I would think that's obvious,
         *   good sir.
         *
         * Phoenix:
         *   If that's true...
         *
         * Phoenix:
         *   then how can you know for sure
         *   that the defendant left the

         *
         * Judge:
         *   Now that you mention it...

         *   What do you mean by that!?

      From what I can tell, there
      is nothing wrong with this

      we can establish that Maya

      Yes, yes... That is exactly

      Be quiet, you!

      Now then, what the escapee

      speak with a certain person!

      She... She went to speak with
      someone!?
    
    Judge:
      Wh-Who was it!?
    
    von Karma:
      The prosecution calls Ms. Ini
      Miney, who was sleeping in the
      Side Room at the time.
    
    Phoenix:
      I-Ini Miney...?

      Um... OK, so my name is,

    Ini:
      I'm, like, researching, like,
      parapsychology stuff at the,
      um, university.
    
    Judge:
      What is this "parapsychology"?
    
    Ini:
      Um... Let's see...
      It's, like, I guess, most
      people call it "occult stuff".

      Even if that's what most
      people call it, I can't say I
      understand what that means...
    
    von Karma:
      Then I suggest you go home
      and research it yourself.

      Yes, sir.
    
    von Karma:
      Now then, Ms. Miney,
    
    von Karma:
      after the murder took place,
      you spoke with the defendant,
      Maya Fey.
    
    von Karma:
      Is this correct?
    
    Ini:
      Um... Well...
      Hmm...
      Like, I guess...

      If that's the case, then

      I, like, hadn't seen her in
      like, so long... I was so
      happy in, like, a sad way...
    
    (5)
    Ini:
      My sister... She, like, told
      me something, like, totally
      terrible.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Now hold your horses, young
      lady! You're saying the person
      that entered was your sister!?
    
    Judge:
      Don't you mean the defendant,
      Maya Fey...?
    
    von Karma:
      Really, now... Your Honor.
    
    von Karma:
      Maya Fey was still in the
      middle of channeling at
      that time.
    
    Judge:
      A-Are you saying that the
      spirit was the spirit of this
      witness' sister!?
    
    von Karma:
      Yes, Mimi Miney. She was
      a nurse at Dr. Grey's clinic.
    
    Judge:
      Oh... W-Well... This is...
    
    von Karma:
      Witness.
    
    Ini:
      Like, yeah?
    
    von Karma:
      In your testimony, you
      mentioned a "terrible" thing.
    
    von Karma:
      Why don't you tell the court
      what this terrible thing was?
    
    von Karma:
      I'm sure we'd love to hear
      about it.
    
    Ini:
      ...Um, like... Do I totally,
      like, really have to?
    
    von Karma:
      Of course.
    
    Judge:
      Ms. Miney... please.
    
    Ini:
      ...
    
    Ini:
      My sister...
      Like, this is what she
      said to me.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    That was... no accident...
    
    I was drugged...
         with sleeping pills...
    
    I was murdered...
         by that person...
    
    That's why...
          I took...
               my revenge...
    
    It's only fair...
               Isn't it...
                         ...Ini?
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      She "took her revenge?"
    
    Judge:
      Are you sure that's what
      she said?
    
    Ini:
      Y-Yes...
    
    von Karma:
      There, are you satisfied,
      Your Honor?
    
    Judge:
      ...I still can't believe it.
    
    Judge:
      I can't believe that a spirit
      would go so far as to use a
      medium to get revenge...
    
    von Karma:
      It is a bit hard to swallow,
    
    von Karma:
      however, all the evidence and
      testimonies point to this
      as the truth!
    
    von Karma:
      ...The end.
    
    Judge:
      ...What do you think,
      Mr. Wright?
    
    Judge:
      It certainly seems like all
      the loose ends are accounted
      for...
    
    Phoenix:
      (This...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (This testimony just now...
      Was it all made up?
      Was it just one huge lie...?)
    
    Mia:
      Of course it was, Phoenix.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Mia!
      What do you mean?
    
    Mia:
      It's well constructed... but
      that's all it is.
    
    Mia:
      But even the most well-spun
      lies can be undone.
    
    Mia:
      We can do it, Phoenix. Let's
      find that one loose thread and
      unwind this tapestry of lies.
    
    Phoenix:
      Your Honor! There is room for
      doubt, so the defense will
      cross-examine this witness.
    
    Phoenix:
      We believe that our cross-
      examination will reveal the
      real truth behind this murder!
    
    von Karma:
      Yet again the foolish fool
      spouts out more foolishly
      foolish drabble...
    
    von Karma:
      I wonder if you'll make this
      one more entertaining than
      the last...

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- After the Murder --
    
    (1)
    Ini:
      Like, when the channeling
      started, I was, like, sleeping
      in the Side Room.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Was that because of your,
           um... sesame allergy, was it?
    
         Ini:
           Like, that's right.
    
         Ini:
           I, like, think there were
           sesame seeds, like, in the
           lunch they served that day.
    
         Ini:
           I had this, like, premonition
           that it was going to totally
           be a "seedy" day.
    
         von Karma:
           Yes, indeed.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
           I see...
    
         Phoenix:
           (...Am I the only one who
           missed the boat here...?)
    
         Judge:
           Anyway, so you were taking
           a nap. Did something happen
           while you were sleeping?
    
    (2)
    Ini:
      Like, a little later, someone
      came into the room, like,
      really suddenly.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Do you know the time?
    
         Ini:
           Um, uh... Like, maybe a little
           before 11 AM? Something like
           that, I think...
    
         Phoenix:
           E-Eleven AM...?
    
         Ini:
           Yeah. Like, my stomach is
           totally ready for, like, food.
    
         Phoenix:
           ...
    
         Phoenix:
           Ah, no... I think you
           misunderstood me... I'm not
           asking what time it is now...
    
         Phoenix:
           I meant what time was it
           when the "someone" came
           into your room!
    
         Ini:
           Oh! So, like, that's what you
           meant! Like, you shoulda been
           more, like, clear about it!
    
         Phoenix:
           S-Sorry. My bad.
    
         Ini:
           No, it's OK.
           Like, it's really...
    
         Phoenix:
           ...
    
         Ini:
           ...?
    
         Phoenix:
           ...That's it?
           Why'd you stop mid-sentence!?
    
         Ini:
           Did I?
           ...So, like... what was
           I talking about again...?
    
         Phoenix:
           ...
           N-Never mind...
    
         von Karma:
           ...Witness. About this person
           who entered the Side Room...
    
    (3)
    Ini:
      It was, like, oh my gawd,
      totally my sister!
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Are you absolutely sure?
    
         Ini:
           ...I guess?
    
         Phoenix:
           You "guess"...?
    
         Phoenix:
           Was it or was it not your
           sister who entered?
    
         Ini:
           Like, I don't know.
    
         Ini:
           I mean, like, I totally don't
           know "your sister" at all,
           Mr. Smith.
    
         Phoenix:
           (First off, my name is not
           Mr. Smith. Second, I'm an
           only child.)
    
         Phoenix:
           (...Hmm, but more than that,
           she's managed to mess up the
           question with her answer...)
    
         Judge:
           Well, Mr. Wright?
    
         Phoenix:
           Th-The defense rests...
    
         von Karma:
           Well, that was a colossal
           waste of our time!
    
         von Karma:
           Now then, witness. How did
           you feel when you saw
           Ms. Mimi Miney?
    
    (4)
    Ini:
      I, like, hadn't seen her in,
      like, so long... I was so
      happy in, like, a sad way...
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           You were... happy in a sad
           way...?
    
         Ini:
           Yeah, like, I mean, it was
           my sister!
    
         Phoenix:
           But wouldn't most people react
           here with surprise at seeing a
           dead loved one alive again?
    
         Ini:
           Um, but, like, maybe if I was,
           like, someone who didn't know
           about, like, the occult.
    
         Ini:
           But I, like, know all about
           the Kurain Channeling
           Technique.
    
         von Karma:
           The point here, is the witness
           immediately recognized that
           it was her "sister".
    
         Ini:
           Yeah, like, what she said.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Hmm... Should I drop this
           line of questioning...?)
    
         *** Question further ***********************

         *
         * Judge:

         *   witness felt when she saw

      She really put a lot of

      We can't rush this.
      Let's take it slowly, one step

      She's bound to slip up

      Don't give up.
      But don't get careless, OK?

      Ms. Miney, may I remind you

      You said that there was

      L-Like, yeah... And...?
    
    Phoenix:
      But I don't really think you
      thought that at all.
      Take a look at this picture.

      This is a picture of the
      "sister" you met.

      I would think that even you

           *HOLD IT!*

           Ms. Mimi Miney, like at the
           time?
    
         Ini:
           Well, she was, like, totally
           flipped out 'cause she
           just shot Dr. Grey...
    
         Ini:
           But, I think, like, she knew.
           She, like, said she did
           something really bad.
    
         Ini:
           And, like, she said she
           wanted to go with me to,
           like, apologize to Ms. Morgan.
    
         Phoenix:
           Did Mimi's spirit really say

           Was your sister calm by that
           time?
    
         Ini:
           Like, I guess so...
    
         Ini:
           I guess maybe, like, taking
           her revenge on Dr. Grey, like,
           made her feel a lot better...
    
         von Karma:
           I'd like to feel a lot better
           too... Mr. Phoenix Wright.
           The sooner the better...

      It just so happens that at the

    *
    * Mia:
    *   She is the real murderer.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   That's a pretty daring

    *   It's worth a shot, even if
    *   it's in the dark.
    *
    * Mia:
    *   So, let's try to prove that

      And, like, Ms. Morgan was
      the only one in the Channeling

      It's true that at the time,

    Phoenix:
      The murderer had planted
      herself at the scene of the
      crime long beforehand.
    
    Phoenix:
      Dressed in a medium's costume
      and wearing a wig, she
      pretended to be the defendant.
    
    Phoenix:
      And then, the channeling
      started.
    
    Phoenix:
      The murderer crept silently
      towards the other two, both of
      whom had their eyes closed.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...First, she drugged Maya Fey
      with a strong sleeping agent.
    
    Phoenix:
      Then, she stabbed Dr. Grey
      with the knife!
    
    Phoenix:
      Next, she hid my client inside
      the clothing box...
    
    Phoenix:
      She did that so she could take
      Maya's place and frame her
      for the crime.
    
    Mia:
      ...But that's when something
      unexpected happened.

    Phoenix:
      With the last of his strength,
      he fired a shot at his
      attacker!
    
    Phoenix:
      And that is why the hole in
      the folding screen was so low
      to the ground!
    
    Phoenix:
      The murderer then took the
      gun from Dr. Grey, and...
    
    *bang!*

      After that, you and the other
      lady thought to break into the

      Yes, a gunshot is certainly
      something you wouldn't
      expect to hear.

      Which is why, upon hearing
      the shots, we forced our way
      into the Channeling Chamber.

    Phoenix:
      *TAKE THAT!*
    
    Ini:
      ...Hah!
    
    Ini:
      Just as I thought.
      You bore me with your silly
      answers, Phoenix Wright!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Just great. Now even SHE is
      calling me by my full name...)
    
    Ini:
      You think I did this to get
      revenge for my sister's
      death?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes!
    
    Phoenix:
      Because through that accident,
      you suffered a lot of hurt and
      pain yourself!
    
    Ini:
      Don't be stupid!
    
    Ini:
      No one has proof that Dr. Grey
      drugged my sister, right?
    
    Ini:
      And you want to say I wanted
      to take revenge based on
      nothing?
    
    Judge:
      Wh-What do you mean by
      that...?
    
    Ini:
      Senile, stupid gramps.
    
    Ini:
      ...
      I'm, like, going to explain,
      so, like, please listen, OK?
    
    Ini:
      It's been over half a year
      since I was discharged from
      the hospital.
    
    Ini:
      If I, like, wanted revenge,
      then, like, I wouldn't have
      waited this long.
    
    Ini:
      Um, and 'sides, like, the guy
      that thought of the spirit
      thing, was, like, Dr. Grey.
    
    Ini:
      It was, like, a total
      coincidence he asked me about
      it, you know?
    
    Phoenix:
      (She... She's back to her
      airhead self...!)
    
    Phoenix:
      H-However, you see--
    
    Phoenix:
      Eeeowch!
    
    von Karma:
      Pathetic, Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
    von Karma:
      You failed to support your
      own theory.
    
    von Karma:
      ...The end.
    
    Judge:
      I think we have our answer,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
    Judge:
      What Ms. Miney has stated
      is very true.
    
    Judge:
      The revenge plan is overly
      complicated, and she has
      no motive in the first place.
    
    Judge:
      Furthermore, there is no
      reason for Ms. Morgan Fey to
      cooperate with this plan.
    
    Judge:
      You don't even have any truly
      decisive pieces of evidence
      to demonstrate your point.
    
    von Karma:
      Tsk, tsk. So many faults,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright. You should
      really learn your place.
    
    Phoenix:
      Nnghuuurk!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Wh-What happened!?
      I thought I had her for
      sure!...)
    
    Ini:
      Hee hee...
      See, like, that's what I,
      like, told you!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...?
    
    Ini:
      I'm going to serve you a slice
      of humble pie!
    
    Judge:
      Very well, I now conclude the
      cross-examination of Ms. Ini
      Miney!
    
      *HOLD IT!*
    
    Mia:
      Your Honor.
      Please, allow the defense one
      more minute.
    
    Judge:
      Alright.
    
    Mia:
      You can't lose here.
      Have faith in yourself,
      Phoenix!
    
    Phoenix:
      Mia...
    
    Mia:
      Yes, it does sound like
      a ridiculously messed up
      plan for a murder,
    
    Mia:
      but you know, regardless, that
      girl trained for this crime.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...R-Really?
    
    Mia:
      ...
      Listen, Phoenix.
    
    Mia:
      Everything happens for a
      reason.
    
    Mia:
      There is a reason for why she
      had to kill Dr. Grey.
    
    Mia:
      And it is also the reason
      she had no choice but to kill
      him in this fashion.
    
    Judge:
      Time is up, Mr. Wright.
    
    Judge:
      Your final answer, please.
    
    Judge:
      If you want to say that you
      can prove Ms. Miney had a
      motive, then...
    
    Judge:
      why did she kill the victim in
      this way?
      Can you provide the reason?
    
    Phoenix:
      (...Can I...
      Can I really do this...?)
    
    *** Yes, I can. ****************************
    *
    * CONTINUE

    Phoenix:
      (I am not totally confident
      here, but I know that I must
      press on no matter what...)
    
    Mia:
      That's right, Phoenix!
      Only you can do this now!
    
    Phoenix:
      I will show and substantiate
      the fact that Ms. Miney had
      a motive!
    
    Ini:
      Ha ha ha. Too bad.
      You're too late!
    
    Ini:
      My cross-examination has
      already ended, after all.
    
    Ini:
      Eeek!
    
    von Karma:
      ...Interesting.
    
    von Karma:
      I'll let you have your chance,
      Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
    Ini:
      Wh-What!?
      Y-You're supposed to be on
      my side!
    
    Ini:
      Aiiiii!
    
    von Karma:
      A Von Karma only cares about
      the perfect win.
    
    von Karma:
      As long as you have the will
      to fight, I will knock you
      down, Mr. Phoenix Wright!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    von Karma:
      And I don't care if you are my
      witness! So help me, I will
      blow you out of my way!
    
    Ini:
      N-No way...
    
    Judge:
      Very well.
    
    Judge:
      The court will take a 5 minute
      recess.
    
    Judge:
      We will continue the cross-
      examination after we
      reconvene.
    
    Ini:
      H-Hey! W-Wait a sec, here
    
    
                                                 To be continued.

    Maya:
      ...Is it really true... about
      my aunt...?
    
    Phoenix:
      I'm afraid so, Maya.
      There is no way Ini could've
      killed Dr. Grey by herself.
    
    Phoenix:
      And under the circumstances,
      there's no one else other than
      your aunt, Morgan.
    
    Maya:
      That... That's terrible...
      Why? Why would my aunt...?
    
      Everything is going just as
      I predicted, Mr. Phoenix
      Wright.
    
    von Karma:
      Ack!
      Ms. von Karma!
    
    Maya:
      Why are you doing this!?
      Why are you trying to take
      revenge on Nick!?
    
    Maya:
      Nick had nothing to do with
      what happened to your dad.
    
    von Karma:
      Don't you have something
      better to be worrying about?

      Say, your own situation?

      Ugnn...
      ...Looking down on me, even

    Phoenix:
      Are you done yet?
      You've cause me enough pain
      and suffering.
    
    von Karma:
      Not yet.
    
    von Karma:
      My goal is to defeat you, and
      let the whole world know of
      your defeat.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...But even if you do that,
      it won't bring your father
      back...

      ...

      Hmph.

    von Karma:
      In the meantime, let's bring

    Judge:
      Court will now reconvene.
      Mr. Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes, Your Honor?
    
    Judge:
      Can you prove Ms. Ini Miney
      had a motive?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes, I believe I can.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Ini Miney and Dr. Grey have
      only one point of connection.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (And that is the car accident
      one year ago. The motive I'm
      looking for must be there...)
    
    Phoenix:
      Ms. Miney. Please testify to
      this court about your car
      accident last year.
    
    Ini:
      Huh? I thought, like, you
      wanted to, like, ask about my,
      like, motive.
    
    Ini:
      I, like, don't see the point
      in, like, bringing up the
      past.
    
    Judge:
      Ms. Miney, if you please.
    
    Ini:
      ...OK, OK.
      Like, I totally don't think
      it'll do any good, but...

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- Last Year's Accident --
    
    (1)
    Ini:
      That was...
      like, last year, in May.
    
    (2)
    Ini:
      Like, something really bad
      had happened at, like, my
      sister's clinic around then...
    
    (3)
    Ini:
      And like, the night of the
      accident, my sis was totally
      tired while she was driving.
    
    (4)
    Ini:
      I was, like, totally pooped
      too, so I, like, fell asleep
      in the passenger's seat...
    
    (5)
    Ini:
      I, like, woke up 'cause of a
      jolt, and, like, it was a sea
      of flames around me.
    
    (6)
    Ini:
      I, like, opened the door and,
      like, got away.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
      I think I've heard of this
      incident.
    
    Phoenix:
      It was all the talk on the
      tabloid shows, day after day,
      last year.
    
    Judge:
      Yes, and there was talk
      about Dr. Grey... drugging
      your sister...?
    
    Judge:
      Gwuugh!
    
    von Karma:
      Those were merely "rumors".
      ...Totally baseless gossip.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm, yes...
      Mr. Wright, you may question
      the witness.
    
    Mia:
      Right now, it's impossible to
      prove
    
    Mia:
      that Dr. Grey did in fact drug
      Ms. Miney's sister.
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah... Which means I'll have
      to work this from another
      angle.

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- Last Year's Accident --
    
    (1)
    Ini:
      That was...
      like, last year, in May.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Didn't some sort of medical
           malpractice happen at your
           sister's hospital then...?
    
         Ini:
           Yeah, like, that was in May
           too.
    
         Ini:
           Like, the thing with all the
           patients dying was, like, May
           2nd,
    
         Ini:
           and like, our accident was,
           like, on the 24th.
    
         Phoenix:
           Two accidents back to back...
           Do you assume it's just
           a coincidence?
    
         Ini:
           My sis was, like, totally
           tired, so that's why, duh.
    
    (2)
    Ini:
      Like, something really bad
      had happened at, like, my
      sister's clinic around then...
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           That was the malpractice
           incident where 14 patients
           died, correct?
    
         Ini:
           Yeah.
    
         Phoenix:
           What was the cause of the
           mistake?
    
         Ini:
           Like, I heard it was 'cause
           the medicines, like, got mixed
           up.
    
         Phoenix:
           Was that the fault of your
           sister, Mimi Miney?
    
         Ini:
           Like, no way.
           Dr. Grey, like, wanted to
           blame it on my sis...
    
         von Karma:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         von Karma:
           That incident has nothing
           to do with our murder here.
    
         von Karma:
           Besides, the police report has
           already documented that it was
           entirely Mimi Miney's fault.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Which means as far as the
           "real" facts are concerned...)
    
         Phoenix:
           (Mimi Miney is the one who
           made the mistake...)
    
         Ini:
           But, like, it really wasn't my
           sis...
    
    (3)
    Ini:
      And like, the night of the
      accident, my sis was totally
      tired while she was driving.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           She was "totally tired"?
           You mean, exhausted?
    
         Ini:
           Like, she had to talk to the
           police, and, like, was being
           investigated, like, every day.
    
         Ini:
           It was, like, a totally
           terrible situation.
    
         Phoenix:
           It's no wonder, then, that
           the car accident happened,
           huh?

           What happened to her?
    
         Ini:
           I... I didn't see her...
    
         Ini:
           The car was, like, totally
           black, and there was, like,
           a ton of smoke...
    
         Ini:
           I, like, totally had, like, no
           clue what was going on.
    
    (6)
    Ini:
      I, like, opened the door and,
      like, got away.

           I...
           I, like, kept wanting to
           forget that time,
    
         Ini:
           so, like, I don't remember
           things about the accident in,
           like, details anymore...
    
         Judge:
           Hmm, well, it's alright.
           No need to push yourself.
    
         Ini:
           I think I, like, gave an
           interview after the accident.
    
         Ini:
           Like, that would probably be
           the most accurate, you know?
    
         Phoenix:
           (Hmm, if it's that article,
           then I've already got it...)
    
    (6b)
    Ini:
      I, like, didn't have my
      license, so, like, I couldn't
      take over driving for her.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           And that's why you were in
           the passenger's seat?
    
         Ini:
           Like, yeah.
    
         Ini:
           I was, like, at my college's
           research lab 'till, like,
           really late...
    
         Ini:
           So my sis was, like, giving
           me a ride home.
    
         Phoenix:
           I see...
    
         Mia:
           Phoenix.
    
         Phoenix:
           Y-Yes?
    
         Mia:
           You can't do this.
           You're being too easy on her.

    Phoenix:
      (There's got to be some
      sort of secret sleeping in

    Phoenix:
      Ms. Miney.
      That was a lame lie just now.
    
    Ini:
      Like, what do you mean?
    
    Phoenix:
      I know you had a license
      back then!
    
    Phoenix:
      This is a photo you took for
      the express purpose of getting
      a driver's license!
    
    Ini:
      Umm...
    
    Judge:
      What is the meaning of this,
      Ms. Miney!?
    
    Ini:
      Ah, um... Uh...
      That's... That's right!
    
    Ini:
      Y-Yeah, I had, like,
      a license... But...
    
    Ini:
      ...
    
    Ini:
      But I didn't get it until
      after the accident!
    
    Phoenix:
      No, you had it.
    
    Phoenix:
      You had it at the time of the
      accident!
    
    Phoenix:
      Director Hotti... or the guy
      pretending to be him anyway,
      said so!
    
    Ini:
      What, are you talking about
      that perverted fake clinic
      director?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes, that perverted fake
      clinic director. And how did
      you know he was perverted.
    
    Phoenix:
      Eowch!
    
    von Karma:
      No one cares.
    
    von Karma:
      Witness. When did you receive
      your driver's license?
    
    Ini:
      Like, last November.
    
    Phoenix:
      What?
      N-N-November...?
    
    von Karma:
      The accident happened last
      May. That's a half year lapse
      in time, Mr. Phoenix Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      Wh-Wh-Wh-Wh-What in the!?
    
    Judge:
      Th-Th-Th-Th-That's what
      happened, Mr. Wright!
    
    Judge:
      At the time of the accident,
      Ms. Miney did not have a
      driver's license.
    
    Phoenix:
      Uuuuurk...
    
    Phoenix:
      OW!
    
    von Karma:
      Cry, and my whip will
      accommodate.
    
    Judge:
      Anyway, without a license, the
      witness and her sister could
      not have switched drivers.
    
    Ini:
      I'm, like, glad you get it,
      but...
    
    Ini:
      like, even if I had my
      license,
    
    Ini:
      I, like, don't think my sis
      woulda, like, let me drive.
    
    Phoenix:
      (...Hmm...)
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeow!
    
    Mia:
      Don't just stand there
      "hmm"-ing to yourself!
    
    Phoenix:
      Not you too, Mia! With
      the whip... And the pain...
      And the oww...
    
    Mia:
      Ms. Miney! Why do you think
      you would not have been
      allowed to drive anyway?
    
    Ini:
      Eh?
      Um...
      That's because...
    
    Judge:
      I think this situation calls
      for a more detailed testimony.
      Ms. Miney, if you please.
    
    Ini:
      Eh?
      Like, how annoying.
    
    Ini:
      Oops, like, sorry.
      Didn't mean to be mean...

    (1)
    Ini:
      Like, around that time, I was,
      like, really close to getting
      my license.
    
    (2)
    Ini:
      My sis was, like, this totally
      big fan of cars and, like,
      really valued them.
    
    (3)
    Ini:
      She, like, had just gotten
      this really shiny, bright red
      sports car.
    
    (4)
    Ini:
      She, like, would say things
      like, "No way am I letting a
      newb drive my car!"
    
    (5)
    Ini:
      So, like, that's why I ended
      up in the passenger's seat
      that night too.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
      I see...
      A bright red car for sports...
    
    Judge:
      Now then, the defense may
      question the witness.

           So what do you mean by,
           "really close"?
    
         Ini:
           Like, I had one of those
           "permit" things. I think
           that's what they're called.
    
         Phoenix:
           Um, "permit"?
    
         Ini:
           Wow, the big name lawyer
           boy doesn't even know what
           a driver's permit is!?
    
         Phoenix:
           Well, this lawyer never had
           a permit.
    
         Phoenix:
           Wah!

           All she's said in the last few

           How much would you say
           she valued her car?
    
         Ini:
           Well, like, she'd flip out at,
           like, a drop of rain...
    
         Ini:
           and, like, she would notice
           if someone, like, touched the
           car door with dirty hands.
    
         Phoenix:
           (In that case, why bother

         Ini:
           She was, like, totally
           awesome!
    
         Ini:
           She, like, said she was going

           bumped my question off-track
           again...)

    Ini:
      So, like, that's why I ended
      up in the passenger's seat
      that night too.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           And that was when the
           accident occurred, correct?
    
         Ini:
           Like, yeah...
           I, like, immediately reached
           for the passenger side door,
    
         Ini:
           and fled, like, in a daze...

           Hmm... Sounds like you had
           a terrifying time...

      There is something very big
      here.
    
    Mia:
      It's going to be hard to break
      apart such a natural-sounding
      testimony.
    
    Mia:
      But we have to attack it.
      And by doing so, a flaw will
      show itself. It has to.
    
    Phoenix:
      D-Do you really think so?
    
    Mia:
      Believe.
      There is a path, I know it.
    
    Phoenix:

      like a prophet for a second
      there...)

    Phoenix:
      Do you remember this
      article?
    
    Ini:
      ...?
    
    Phoenix:
      It's an article about the
      accident. You had said this
      in it:
    
    Phoenix:
      "But I opened the right door,
      and, like, got out"...
    
    Phoenix:
      That's correct, isn't it?
    
    Ini:
      Like, why are you suddenly
      asking me about that...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Your Honor.
      Which side is the passenger's
      seat: the left or the right?
    
    Judge:
      Well, it's on the right side,
      of course, because the
      driver's on the left side.
    
    Phoenix:
      That would be if it were an
      American car. But it would be
      the opposite in a British car.
    
    Judge:
      Opposite...?
    
    Phoenix:
      The two of them were riding
      in a British car!
    
    Phoenix:
      In that case, the passenger
      side would be the left side!

      Aaaaah!
    
    Judge:
      Wh-What do you mean by this!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Ms. Miney! You said that you
      had escaped using the right
      side door of the car!
    
    Phoenix:
      But if you were sitting there,
    
    Phoenix:
      then that means you were in
      the driver's seat!

      Mr. Phoenix Wright is

    von Karma:
      Ini said the person who
      was driving was her older
      sister, Mimi Miney!
    
    Phoenix:
      That is what Ini said, yes
      But that is where her story
      falls apart.
    
    Phoenix:
      Somewhere, all of us made a
      big error in our assumptions!
    
    Mia:
      Phoenix.
    
    Mia:
      It looks like you've finally
      found the real root of this
      murder!
    
    Phoenix:
      If we connect all the dots,
      there can only be one answer!
    
    Phoenix:
      I'd like to ask the court a
      question. Ini or Mimi -- who
      was really driving that night?

    Phoenix:
      When she was admitted into the
      hospital, this witness was
      suffering severe facial burns.
    
    Phoenix:
      So for the purpose of facial
      reconstruction, they used a
      picture.
    
    von Karma:
      Facial reconstruction surgery!?
    
    Phoenix:
      This is the picture she gave
      to her doctors at the time.
    
    Phoenix:
      That's right! It's a picture
      of her younger sister!
    
    Ini:
      Nooooo!

      was Ini Miney.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Her sister, Mimi, then stole
      her face... And was reborn as
      Ini.)

      erased "Mimi Miney"

      Your Honor.
    
    Mia:
      I'm sure you can now see why
      Mimi had to kill Dr. Grey.
    
    Judge:
      Wh-What do you mean?
    
    Judge:
      Aaah!
    
    von Karma:
      What is the meaning of 
      this nonsense!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Dr. Grey wanted to call back
      the spirit of a dead person.
    
    Phoenix:
      Specifically, the spirit of
      his nurse that died in the
      crash, Mimi Miney.
    
    Phoenix:
      However, that would not have
      been possible!
    
    Phoenix:
      Because "Mimi Miney" was
      still, in fact, alive!
    
    Phoenix:
      And that fact would have been
      discovered had the channeling
      been conducted.
    
    Phoenix:
      So this witness had to stop
      that from happening...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...at all costs!
    
    von Karma:
      And... And...
    
    von Karma:
      And that's why she had to kill
      Dr. Turner Grey?
      Is that what you're saying!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes.
    
    Phoenix:
      Before the channeling,
    
    Phoenix:
      Dr. Grey had the misfortune of
      consulting this witness about
      communicating with the dead.
    
    Phoenix:
      And in that moment, his fate
      was sealed!

      That's right, I admit it.
      My real name is Mimi Miney.

      He got what he deserved
      in the end.
    
    Mimi:
      And I was so close to finally
      ditching "Mimi" too.
    
    Mimi:
      So close...
    
    Judge:
      But... But why!?
    
    Judge:
      Why would you go so far to
      throw away your self...?
    
    Judge:
      To become your own sister!?
    
    Mimi:

      box, right?
    
    Maya:
      That box...
    
    Maya:
      That was the box you used
      to store your clothes in a
      long time ago...
    
    Mia:
      That's right!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      Hmm... There is still one
      thing I don't quite get.
    
    Mia:
      What's that?
    
    Phoenix:
      What would've happened if
      Mimi hadn't shot Dr. Grey...?
    
    Phoenix:
      I mean, we broke in because
      we heard a gunshot.
    
    Mia:
      I think Mimi Miney had planned
      to open the door to the
      Chamber herself.
    
    Mia:
      And then, you and Lotta would
      have witnessed quite a scene;
    
    Mia:
      a "possessed" Maya Fey, who
      had just committed a murder.
    
    Phoenix:
      She had it planned down to
      the smallest detail, huh...?
    
    Maya:
      Nick!
    
    Phoenix:
      Congrats, Maya.
    
    Maya:
      Thanks!
    
    Maya:
      Looks like you bailed me out
      of another jam.
    
    Phoenix:
      Well... you know...
    
    Maya:
      But...
    
    Maya:
      I really don't want something
      like this to happen ever
      again.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...?
    
    Maya:
      I'm fine because I have you
      to help me out, Nick...
    
    Maya:
      But every time something
      happens, I lose someone
      special to me.
    
    Maya:
      First my sister...
      And now my aunt...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Maya:
      Hey, Nick... Tell me...
    
    Maya:
      Tell me why my aunt went
      and did something so horrible?
    
    Maya:
      Why would she help Ms. Mimi
      with a plan like that...!?
    
    Maya:
      I just...
      I just don't understand it,
      Nick...
    
    Phoenix:
      Maya, it's over. Why don't
      we just let it be.
    
    Maya:
      Nick, please, I need an
      answer...
    
    Phoenix:
      (The reason Morgan helped
      Mimi with her plan was...)

    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Everything was done for her

    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   It was all so that Pearls

    *
    * Maya:
    *   Y-Yeah... I can see that...

      You are the only one suitable

      Now! The moment you've
      all been waiting for!
    
      Who will be this year's Grand
      Prix Champion?
    
      Who will be our
      "Hero of Heroes"!?
    
      Will it be last year's runner-
      up, Jammin' Ninja!?
    
      Or maybe Captain Saipan
      all the way from the lovely
      tropical island of Saipan!?
    
      I see the students of a
      certain Starry School are
      raring to win!
    
      And Global Hero Onyankopon
      doesn't want to go home
      without the prize!
    
      We hope lady luck is with all
      our heroes tonight!
    
      And now!
    
      The winner of the third
      annual Hero of Heroes
      Grand Prix...
    
      IS ME!!
    
      Whoooooooooa!
      The true hero of the night
      has appeared in our midst!
    
    == Hero of Heroes  Super Hero ==
    
      It looks like this year's
      Grand Prix goes to this
      fantastic warrior!
    
      The Nickel Samurai!
    
      Too bad, Jammin' Ninja.
      Looks like the title eluded
      you again this year!

    Maya:
      Alright! Yes! Did you hear
      that, Nick!? Did you!? The
      Nickel Samurai! He did it!
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah, he sure did...
      *sigh*
      I'm getting too old for this.
    
    Powers:
      Ah, I'm proud of the guy for
      doing the series justice.
    
    Pearl:
      U-Um...
      So the person everyone was
      cheering for...
    
    Pearl:
      I guess he got the prize?
    
    Maya:
      Yup!
    
    Maya:
      You know who we're talking
      about, right Pearly?
      "The Nickel Samurai"!
    
    Pearl:
      No. Every Sunday, I only watch
      the Educational Channel's
      "Kids' Masterpiece Theatre".
    
    Maya:
      OK, that's it! From now on,
      it's "The Nickel Samurai"!
      All the kids watch it!
    
    Pearl:
      Do you like "The Nickel
      Samurai" too, Mr. Nick?
    
    Maya:
      Nah, Nick's an old fart, so
      he's not allowed to watch
      it anymore.
    
    Phoenix:
      That's right. But I do like
      "Kids' Masterpiece Theatre".
    
    Maya:
      Hey, I didn't know you were
      so young at heart, Nick!
    
    Pearl:
      Mr. Nick! You're a grown-up!
      You're not allowed to watch
      it anymore!
    
    Pearl:
      You're supposed to act your
      age and have interests that
      match.
    
    Pearl:
      ...It's very important.
    
    Maya:
      Aw, give it a rest, Pearly!
    
    Powers:
      Looks like I made the right
      choice in inviting everyone
      here.
    
    Powers:
      I'm glad you're all having a
      good time.
    
    Maya:
      Aaaaah... It's like a dream!
    
    Powers:
      Too bad for the Jammin' Ninja,
      though.
    
    Powers:
      Last year, he lost to The
      Pink Princess: Warrior of
      Little Olde Tokyo.
    
    Powers:
      I thought this might be his
      year...
    
    Maya:
      Yeah...
    
    Maya:
      Oh, hey, did anyone else think
      that the Jammin' Ninja was
      a bit different today?
    
    Pearl:
      Different?
      What do you mean?
    
    Maya:
      Um, well, he wasn't carrying
      his bright red guitar.
    
    Powers:
      Hey, you're right!
      Strange he'd walk around
      without his signature guitar.
    
    Phoenix:
      (...*sigh*
      I will never understand these
      people and their shows...)
    
    Phoenix:
      Anyway, Mr. Powers, thank
      you very much for tonight.
    
    Powers:
      A-Aw, it was nothing... I owe
      you one, so it's just my way
      of saying thanks.
    
    Maya:
      Hey, Nick! Come on!
      It's time to get going to the
      lobby!
    
    Maya:
      There's a post-ceremony stage
      show that's supposed to start
      real soon.
    
    Powers:
      And then, I heard there's
      going to be a press conference
      after that.
    
    Phoenix:
      A press conference? Is he
      going to make a speech about
      winning this year's prize?
    
    Powers:
      Uh, well, not exactly...
      Something about the Nickel
      Samurai confessing something.
    
    Phoenix:
      Confessing...?
      Sounds pretty serious.
    
    Maya:
      Argh! Nick! COME ON!
      You don't want us to be the
      last ones there, do you!?
    
    Pearl:
      Yeah, Mr. Nick!
      Do you!?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Why me...?
      The show doesn't even start
      for another 20 minutes...)

    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ Doors on the left ++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a grand set of doors
    +   over there.
    +
    + Powers:
    +   And behind those doors is an
    +   equally grand lobby.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Shall we go and take a look,
    +   Mr. Nick?
    +
    + Maya:
    +   Hey, wait up! This grand
    +   dessert is calling to me...
    +   It's saying, "Eat me now!"
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Walls or ceiling +++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This sure is one luxurious
    +   hotel.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Almost to the point of gaudy,
    +   with how it blends together
    +   everything "fancy" imaginable.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Speaking of fancy, didn't
    +   that bellboy give me something
    +   like that last year?)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Chandelier +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Maya:
    +   That chandelier is really
    +   something, isn't it?
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   I thought it was a kind of
    +   space ship...
    +
    + Maya:
    +   Hey, Nick. How about we get
    +   one of these for the office?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   One of those hanging from our
    +   poor, weak ceiling? I don't
    +   think so.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Tables at the back +++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Maya:
    +   If this is all a dream, I
    +   don't ever want to wake up!
    +
    + Maya:
    +   And all the directors and
    +   stars that were here to see
    +   the heroes, wow.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I had no idea who most of them
    +   were.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Neither did I.
    +
    + Maya:
    +   Nick, you've got to cut that
    +   "news only" habit out.
    +
    + Maya:
    +   Your new show is going to be
    +   "The Nickel Samurai!"
    +   Every Sunday morning at 8!
    +
    + Maya:
    +   Oh, I know! We can watch it
    +   together starting next week!
    +
    + Maya:
    +   I'll come wake you up extra
    +   early to make sure, OK?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Ah, I'm fine... You know, you
    +   really don't have to on my
    +   account...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ The stage ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The awards ceremony was just
    +   held on that stage.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It was really fabulous.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   You just reminded me of the
    +   circus for a second.
    +
    + Maya:
    +   Well, shows like that are
    +   guaranteed to be good, you
    +   know?
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Front table ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +

    + Phoenix:
    +   (Poor Pearls, having eaten
    +   only vegetables all her life.
    +   She's been missing out...)
    +
    + Maya:
    +   Don't worry! Any leftovers
    +   belong in my happily awaiting
    +   stomach anyway!
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   You're such a glutton, Maya.
    +
    + Powers:
    +   Ah, I lose this one to Maya.
    +   You sure can eat.
    +
    + Maya:
    +   Well, a growing girl needs her
    +   nutrients!

    MOVE TO: "Hallway"
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    March 20
    Gatewater Hotel
    Hallway
    
    Phoenix:
      Wow, what is with this place?
      Looks like I've stumbled into
      Oz or something.
    
    Phoenix:
      Way in the back, there's a
      sign for the bathroom.
    
    Phoenix:
      I bet we have a little time to
      look around before the show
      starts...
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ Teddy bear +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I can understand flowers in
    +   front of the dressing rooms,
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   but what are stuffed bears
    +   doing here...?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Could it be that there's an
    +   action star who has a soft
    +   spot for teddy bears...?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   ...Nah, can't be.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Flowers on the left ++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Compared to the flowers on the
    +   other side of the hall, these
    +   are much more gorgeous.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Let's see... Record companies,
    +   fan clubs, company workers,
    +   family...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Carrying all these flowers
    +   home would be hard, I think...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Door on the left +++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a piece of paper taped
    +   to the door that says, "Juan
    +   Corrida's Room".
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   "Juan Corrida"...
    +   His name just sounds like
    +   a star's name.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I've heard it before, but I
    +   don't know anything about
    +   him at all.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ End of corridor ++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There are toilets in each room
    +   in this hotel,
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   but since all sorts of events
    +   are held here,
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   there are bathrooms for people
    +   who aren't staying here to
    +   use as well.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Perfect for people like me,
    +   who can't afford a stay here
    +   in the first place...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Flowers on the right +++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   "To Mr. Engarde
    +   From the Global Studio Staff"
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Ah, it'd be nice if lawyers
    +   got flowers too.
    +   Something like,
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   "To Mr. Wright
    +   From All Your Grateful
    +   Clients".
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Door on the right ++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a piece of paper taped
    +   to the door that says, "Matt
    +   Engarde's Room".
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   "Matt Engarde"...
    +   I've heard that name before.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Oh, yeah. Maya's always
    +   yammering about him like the
    +   obsessed fan she is...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    MOVE TO: "Viola Hall"
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Powers:
      Sounds like the post-ceremony
      show is about to start.
    
    Maya:
      Alright! I'm so pumped!
    
    Maya:
      I wonder if he's going to show
      off his special move today?
      "Nickel Samurai Smelting!"
    
    Powers:
      Actually, what I'm interested
      in most is the press
      conference.
    
    Maya:
      You mean the "big confession"
      the Nickel Samurai's going to
      make after the show?
    
    Maya:
      So what is it?
      Don't you know what it's
      about, Mr. Powers?
    
    Powers:
      Uh, well, I'm not the Steel
      Samurai anymore, so I don't
      have any idea.
    
    Maya:
      Bah.
    
    Powers:
      S-Sorry.
    
    Powers:
      Ah, so I guess you are all
      going to the press conference
      then?
    
    Maya:
      Yeah, of course!
    
    Powers:
      If that's the case, then here,
      take these tickets so you can
      get in.
    
    *Press Conference Ticket added
    to the Court Record.*
    
    Phoenix:
      Thank you very much.
      Well, let's get going to the
      lobby.
    
    Pearl:
      It looks like it's over this
      way, Mr. Nick!
    
    Maya:
      OK!
      For great justice!

    *** Press Conference Ticket ****************
    *
    * Powers:
    *   They called this so suddenly
    *   that something about it just
    *   seems off, you know?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   You mean the press conference?
    *
    * Powers:
    *   Yeah. He said,
    *   "There's something I'd like to
    *   confess if I win."
    *
    * Powers:
    *   I heard he faxed his request
    *   for a conference in to the
    *   office only yesterday.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Yesterday...
    *   (Yeah, that is kind of
    *   sudden.)
    *
    * Powers:
    *   But I guess his manager set
    *   everything up somehow, so he
    *   was lucky.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Hmm... Nice manager.

      Hmm... Only a really gaudy
      hotel would have such a large,
      gaudy lobby to match.
    
    Pearl:
      Ah, I think they're going to

      Honestly, youth these days
      can't be bothered to listen to
      other people when they talk!
    
    ? ? ?:
      Just the other day it was the
      same thing! There was a small
      footbridge with a sign next to
    
    ? ? ?:
      it that said, "Beware, Bridge
      Out!" And along comes a snot-
      nosed little punk kid right up
    
    ? ? ?:
      to the bridge. I tried to tell
      the boy the bridge was out and
      it was dangerous, but would he
    
    ? ? ?:
      listen!? No, of course not! He
      said he'd be careful and only
      walk on the "in" part of the
    
    ? ? ?:
      bridge since the "out" part is
      what was dangerous! I am not
      kidding you here! The kid said
    
    ? ? ?:
      that and really meant it!
      WELL! I really let him have it
      then, and knocked him clear
    
    ? ? ?:
      off of that bridge! Honestly,
      kids these days don't know
      right from wrong, I tell you!

      program, trying to play nice.
    
    Powers:
      Ah, yeah, that's me.
      Thankfully I still have a
      job...
    
    Oldbag:
      I love that show, and you're a
      hoot! You're the "big
      brother" character, right?
    
    Oldbag:
      Yes, even with your face
      covered by a mask, I know. You
      ended up with a rabbit face.
    
    Oldbag:
      What a work of art, but that's
      how it is, you know? I mean,
      if you didn't wear the mask,
    
    Oldbag:
      who knows how many TVs you'd
      break? Really, and shame on
      those kids exercising around
    
    Oldbag:
      you. They're getting what they
      deserve. This is why I thought
      you shouldn't be anywhere...
    
    Phoenix:
      Um... What are you doing here?
    
    Oldbag:
      Look at my uniform and tell
      me you can't tell I'm a member
      of security!
    
    Maya:
      But that outfit...
    
    Oldbag:
      Annoying, noisy brats get
      the blaster!

    + Maya:
    +   Wow, it looks like there's a
    +   fancy restaurant on the second
    +   floor!
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   You STILL feel like eating?
    +
    + Maya:
    +   I mean, since we're here, you
    +   know?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Don't pull the "since we're

    +
    + Pearl:
    +   What a beautiful mansion.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Do you live in this wonderful
    +   world every day, Mr. Nick?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Oh, no, this is my first time
    +   in a place like this.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Camera +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I'm going to say these cameras
    +   were set up to cover the post-
    +   ceremony stage show.
    +
    + Maya:
    +   But I wonder where everyone's
    +   gone, abandoning their cameras
    +   like this...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (I guess something big must
    +   have happened...)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ The stage ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's the stage for the post-

    +
    + Powers:
    +   There was supposed to be a
    +   press meeting after the show,
    +   but now...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It looks like no one will hear
    +   what the Nickel Samurai had
    +   to confess after all.

    +++ Seats ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Maya:
    +   We're here, so we might as
    +   well take some pictures. OK,
    +   everyone, sit in a chair!
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   But we're all out of film...
    +
    + Maya:
    +   Don't worry about it. There's
    +   a zillion cameras over there
    +   we can borrow.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Hey, hey! You can't just go
    +   and "borrow" an expensive
    +   professional camera like that!

    *AFTER TALKING TO OLDBAG*
    
    Maya:
      ...Hey, Nick.
    
    Phoenix:
      Wh-What is it?
      I don't like that devilish
      smile playing on your lips...
    
    Maya:
      Let's make like we're going to
      the bathroom, and check things
      out!
    
    Phoenix:
      N-No way.
      The police told us not go
      anywhere, remember?
    
    Maya:
      Huh!?
      How B-O-R-I-N-G!
    
    Maya:
      You're such a boring guy!
      You've got no motivation!
      No spirit!
    
    Pearl:
      Huh? What? What's going on?
      Are you giving Mystic Maya
      trouble again, Mr. Nick?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Not you too, Pearls...
      Please don't stick your little
      nose into this one...)
    
    Maya:
      So listen to this, Pearly.
      This one time at lawyer camp,
      Nick...
    
    Phoenix:
      O-OK!
      I get it!
      Let's go take a look.
    
    Maya:
      Yay!
      I know you couldn't say no to
      me, Nick!
    
    Pearl:
      That's right.
    
    Pearl:
      You'd walk over miles of hot
      coals for Mystic Maya,
      wouldn't you Mr. Nick?
    
    Phoenix:
      (That would be EVERY time
      we work a case together...)
    
    Maya:
      Well, what are we waiting for?
      Let's go already! You can come
      along too, Pearly.
    
    Pearl:
      Goody!
      I get to come! I get to come!

    Viola Hall
    
    Phoenix:
      There's nothing really out
      of the ordinary here...
    
    Pearl:
      Are you looking for the "some-
      thing" that the old lady was
      talking about?
    
    Phoenix:
      Doesn't look like it happened
      here. Well, we'd better go
      look somewhere else.
    
    Maya:
      Alright!
      Then, let's try...
    
    Bellboy:
      Excuse me.
    
    Maya:
      Ack!
    
    Bellboy:
      Are you by chance, Ms. Maya
      Fey?
    
    Maya:
      Um, yeah... That's me.
    
    Bellboy:
      You have a phone call waiting
      for you at the front desk.
    
    Maya:
      A call?
      I wonder if it's someone
      from Kurain Village...
    
    Pearl:
      What's wrong, Mystic Maya?
    
    Maya:
      Oh, nothing.
      I'll just go on ahead to check
      it out, OK?
    
    Pearl:
      OK.
    
    Bellboy:
      Right this way, Ms. Fey.
    
    Pearl:
      Let's go look somewhere else
      now, Mr. Nick.
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah, OK.
    
    Pearl:
      This is a little exciting...
      And a little scary...

    +++ Doors on the left ++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a grand set of doors
    +   over there.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's the doors Maya followed
    +   the bellboy out of.
    +

    + Pearl:
    +   So, that's called a "shan-deh

    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Yup.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   What is that for?
    +   What does it do?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Well, it's for lighting up a
    +   room, Pearls.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Um, Mr. Nick? Can I look down
    +   now? My neck hurts...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Tables at the back +++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   They haven't cleaned up all
    +   the food yet.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a sad feeling hanging
    +   in the air now that the party
    +   is over...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ The stage ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The awards ceremony was just
    +   held on that stage.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It was really fabulous.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   You just reminded me of the
    +   circus for a second.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   I wonder if everyone is
    +   alright.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (I heard that Berry Big Circus
    +   just recently started holding
    +   performances again...)
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I'm sure they're all fine,
    +   Pearls.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Front table ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   It's a feast fit for a king!
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Yeah.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   It was the first time I ate
    +   that food.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   What was it called again?
    +   I think it started with "key".
    +   Key... Wee?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   That's right, a "kiwi".
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   I don't know what to say.
    +   It's a sweet but sour fruit
    +   all in one.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Poor Pearls, having eaten
    +   only vegetables all her life.
    +   She's been missing out...)

    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ Second floor +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A lobby with a grand
    +   staircase always feels
    +   enormous.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   But right now, the only thing
    +   filling this enormous room is
    +   anxiety about the murder.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   ...I really hope nothing else
    +   bad happens here...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Camera +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   These cameras must belong to
    +   the press that came to cover
    +   the conference.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   They're all basically doing
    +   the same thing: staring at the
    +   empty stage.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Seats ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Seats for the spectators of
    +   the post-ceremony show and
    +   the press conference.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   But it's too bad neither event

    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   I didn't know she had such an

    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Awesome power...?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   I thought maybe I should do

    *   take up a hobby.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   So I went out and bought some
    *   Morning Glory seeds and
    *   planted them, pal.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   ...That's a good way to
    *   improve yourself.

    * Gumshoe:
    *   Ho ho ho.
    *   Well, it's nothing really...

    *   So who's number two?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Maya Fey.
    *   ...But it looks like she's not
    *   around this time.
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   It must be nice to be such
    *   good friends with each other,
    *   isn't it Mr. Nick?
    *

    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   ...

    *   But I know who Juan Corrida

    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   You can't talk about one
    *   without talking about the

    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   They even debuted around the

    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   So they have this real fiery

    *

      So what's going on,
      Mr. Wright?
    
    Phoenix:
      It looks like Juan Corrida
      has been killed.
    
    Powers:
      Wh-Wh-What!?
      Juan is... He's...!?
    
    Phoenix:
      It looks like he was
      murdered... And a suspect
      was arrested.
    
    Phoenix:
      That suspect is Mr. Matt
      Engarde.
    
    Powers:
      Y-You're joking, right!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Nope. They arrested the Nickel
      Samurai on suspicion of
      murdering the Jammin' Ninja.
    
    Powers:
      Ooogh... Not again...
      I feel sick.
    
    Pearl:
      "Again"...?

      ...About a year ago, something

      I still can't believe...
      No way...
      No way Matt would...
    
    Phoenix:
      (...?
      What's Mr. Powers got in his

    *AFTER TALKING TO POWERS*
    
    Pearl:
      Um... I was just wondering...
      Where's Mystic Maya?
      She's been gone a long time.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Now that she mentions it, she
      was only going to answer a
      phone call...)
    
    Pearl:
      Maybe she got lost.
    
    Pearl:
      I'll take a quick look around
      for her.
    
    ...*beep beep beep*...
    
    Phoenix:
      Ack!
    
    Pearl:
      Wh-What is it, Mr. Nick!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh?
      I... I'm not sure...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Did this transceiver
      just...?)
    
    ...*beep*...
    
    Phoenix:
      Y-Yes, hello?
      Wright here...
    
    ? ? ?:
      Is this Mr. Phoenix Wright,
      the attorney?
    
    Phoenix:
      And you are...!?
    
    ? ? ?:
      You don't need to know who
      I am.
    
    ? ? ?:
      I think you have other things
      to be concerning yourself
      with... Such as...
    
    Maya:
      Heeelp!
      Niiiiick!
    
    Pearl:
      M-Mystic Maya!
    
    Phoenix:
      Maya...?
    
    ? ? ?:
      So, Mr. Wright. Wouldn't you
      agree that the more important
      issue is the fate of the girl?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Her fate? Does he mean
      what I think he means...?)
    
    Phoenix:
      Maya!
      Where are you!?
      Are you hurt!?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Come now.
      Don't fall apart on me yet.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Th-This... No!
      This can't be!)
    
    ? ? ?:
      Now that I have your
      attention, Mr. Attorney,
    
    ? ? ?:
      I have a modest proposal for
      you.
    
    ? ? ?:
      If you do what I require, then
      I will return to you your
      valuable "item" unharmed.
    
    ? ? ?:
      ...What is this called again
      in your fancy lawyer terms?
    
    Phoenix:
      ..."Kidnapping for ransom"...
    
    ? ? ?:
      Yes, that's it.
    
    ? ? ?:
      This is a kidnapping.
    
    Pearl:
      Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
      Mystic Maya!
      Mystic Mayaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!
    
    Phoenix:
      (M-My sight... Everything's
      fading away...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Maya... Maya...
      Maya's been kidnapped!)
    
    ? ? ?:
      You there?
      Mr. Wright, are you there?
    
    Phoenix:
      H-How much!?
      How much do you want!?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Very good, Mr. Attorney.
      I'm glad you have such a good
      grasp of the situation.
    
    Phoenix:
      Hurry up and state your
      condition! And then return
      Maya --
    
    ? ? ?:
      Money is not what I seek.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...What?
    
    ? ? ?:
      What I want is a certain
      verdict. I would like a
      complete acquittal.
    
    Phoenix:
      Complete acquittal!?
      Wh-What in the world have
      you done to need...!?
    
    ? ? ?:
      I am not the person you will
      be representing.
    
    Phoenix:
      What...?
    
    ? ? ?:
      You are currently at the
      Gatewater Hotel, are you not?
    
    ? ? ?:
      And I know that a murder has
      just taken place there.
    
    Phoenix:
      Juan Corrida was killed, and
      the suspect is Matt Engarde...
    
    ? ? ?:
      You are, as expected, quite on
      top of things, Mr. Attorney.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Now then.
      What I want is very simple.
    
    ? ? ?:
      I want you to obtain a
      complete acquittal for Matt
      Engarde.
    
    Phoenix:
      M-Matt Engarde?
      But why?
    
    ? ? ?:
      He did not kill anyone.
      I can attest to that.
      However...
    
    Phoenix:
      H-However!?
      However what!?
    
    ? ? ?:
      However, someone is framing
      him for the murder.
    
    ? ? ?:
      A very smart someone who is
      setting him up to take the
      fall...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      (If I agree and do what he
      wants, can I believe he'll
      keep his end of the bargain!?)
    
    ? ? ?:
      You are, of course, at
      liberty to believe me or
      not.
    
    ? ? ?:
      However, there is one thing
      you can take as fact.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Right now, your very precious
      "item" is with me, in my
      possession.
    
    Maya:
      Mmngnhhh... Heeelp!...
      Nngmph... NIIIICK!
    
    Phoenix:
      Maya!
    
    ? ? ?:
      You have two days.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Of course, tonight, he will be
      in questioning with the
      police.
    
    ? ? ?:
      But the trial is in two days.
    
    ? ? ?:
      At that trial, you will win a
      not guilty verdict.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Remember, you only have
      one chance.
      One chance, Mr. Wright.
    
    Phoenix:
      O-One...!?
      Y-You expect me to get a not
      guilty in one trial day!?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Yes, exactly. I don't believe
      I was wrong in choosing you,
      so don't let me down.
    
    Phoenix:
      Aagh!
    
    ? ? ?:
      Oh, yes, that's right.
      Now that I am playing the role
      of the kidnapper,
    
    ? ? ?:
      I can't pass up this chance to
      say,
    
    ? ? ?:
      "And don't even think about
      callin' the cops!" ...Hmm, not
      great, but you get the idea.
    
    Phoenix:
      D-Dammit!
      Who...
    
    Phoenix:
      Who the hell are you!?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Alright, I'll tell you that
      much.
    
    ? ? ?:
      My name is...
    
    ? ? ?:
      ...De Killer.
    
    ...*beep*...

    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Pearl:
      M-Mr. Nick!
      Wh-Where is Mystic Maya!?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...She's been kidnapped.
    
    Pearl:
      N-No...
      ...
      It's all my fault!
    
    Pearl:
      If only I had gone with Mystic
      Maya...!
    
    Phoenix:
      It's not your fault, Pearls.
    
    Pearl:
      But it is! It is!
      Mystic Mayaaaaaaaaaa!
      Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
    
    Powers:
      Mr. Wright... I think we...
      I think we should tell the
      police what it's going on...!
    
    Phoenix:
      (No! We can't do that!
      If we do, who knows what
      will happen to Maya...)
    
    Pearl:
      Mr. Nick!
      What about the detective
      we saw earlier...?
    
    Phoenix:
      (...Detective Gumshoe!)
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes, that's it!
      Wait here, and I'll be right
      back!
    
    Powers:
      Alright! I'll take care of
      Pearl while you're away!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Gumshoe:
      WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!?
      RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANSOM!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Shhh!
      Not so loud!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...The ransom is complete
      acquittal for Matt Engarde.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Wait, the deal is "complete
      acquittal" in exchange for
      Maya, you mean...?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Then this means Matt Engarde
      is obviously the killer, pal!
      No doubt about it!
    
    Phoenix:
      But the guy said that
      Mr. Engarde is innocent...
    
    Gumshoe:
      You really believe what a
      KIDNAPPER tells you, pal!?
    
    Phoenix:
      (I guess he has a point... If
      Engarde is really innocent,
      then why the kidnapping?)
    
    Gumshoe:
      And on top of everything else,
      there's all this evidence we
      keep finding.
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh?
    
    Gumshoe:
      The guys with the eagle eyes
      are really lapping it up like
      they just caught a huge fish.
    
    Phoenix:
      Umm...
    
    Gumshoe:
      But it's strange. There's so
      much evidence that it feels
      like something's wrong.
    
    Phoenix:
      There's too much evidence?
      Is that possible?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Actually, didn't the
      kidnapper say something about
      Engarde being "set-up"...?)
    
    Gumshoe:
      Anyway, looks like you won't
      be leaving here tonight, pal.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Just sit tight and cooperate
      with the investigation.
      Tomorrow you can start yours.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...A-Alright...
      (Isn't there another way...?)
    
    Gumshoe:
      We've also got to be careful
      about pushing the kidnapper
      the wrong way.
    
    Phoenix:
      You're right...

      Don't worry.

      Yes, that's right. Only one
      person can save you now, and
      that is Mr. Phoenix Wright.

      ...Huh? Wh-What?
      Nick... Nick's going to save
      me...?

      Calm down and be a good
      girl. Think of this as a
      business transaction.
    
    Maya:
      A... A business transaction?
    
    ? ? ?:
      I am going to contact him now.

      I hope you'll cooperate and
      play your assigned role well.

      don't think Pearls got any

      Mystic Maya... She's alright,
      right!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah, she's alright.
      Either way, I'm going to save
      her. You can trust me on that.
    
    Pearl:
      Please...
      Please... Help her...

      hours to start, so Pearls and
      I came down here early...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (To visit one Nickel Samurai,
      charged with the murder of
      the Jammin' Ninja...)
    
    Engarde:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      G-Good morning.
      How are you today?
    
    Engarde:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      I know this situation might
      be a little tough for you...
    
    Engarde:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      Um... We're...
    
    Engarde:
      Oh, sorry dude...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...?
    
    Engarde:
      I already signed up...
    
    Phoenix:
      E-Excuse me...?
    
    Engarde:
      I already have life insurance.
      I signed up a long time ago
      cause my job is, you know...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      Oh! No no no...
      We're not insurance
      salespeople!
    
    Engarde:
      Really...?
    
    Engarde:
      Dude, I really don't need that
      right now either.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...?
    
    Engarde:
      Fire extinguishers. I mean,
      this building isn't my house,
      so...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      No no no...
      We're not here to sell you
      fire extinguishers either!
    
    Phoenix:
      I'm a lawyer.
      My name is Phoenix Wright.
    
    Engarde:
      A lawyer...?
    
    Engarde:
      ...
    
    Engarde:
      Hold on a sec.
      I'm gonna ask my manager, OK?
    
    Engarde:
      ...
      ...
    
    Pearl:
      The Nickel Samurai sure is
      a strange person, isn't he?
    
    Phoenix:
      (I think "strange" is
      an understatement.)
    
    Engarde:
      Sorry about that.
    
    Engarde:
      You're just in time.
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh!?
    
    Engarde:
      You're a lawyer dude, right?
    
    Engarde:
      My manager's looking for a
      good one right now, so how
      about it?
    
    Pearl:
      M-Mr. Nick!
      This is our chance!
    
    Phoenix:
      (I have to make him let me
      take his case! I have to!)

    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ Surveillance camera ++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Smile, you're on candid
    +   camera.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Mr. Engarde keeps sneaking
    +   glances up at the security
    +   camera on the wall...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I wonder if he is still trying
    +   to be a star?
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Guard ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This guard monitors the
    +   visitor's room.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   He's so quiet, you could
    +   forget he was even there... If
    +   he wasn't watching everything.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   He's pushed up against the
    +   wall... Kinda like a magnet on
    +   a refrigerator.
    +

    PRESENT (TO ENGARDE)

    *** Attorney's Badge ***********************
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Mr. Engarde, this is an
    *   attorney's badge.
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Dude, I'm sorry, but I don't
    *   have the free time to be
    *   looking at things like that.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   ...Huh?
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   I'm much too busy with Nickel
    *   Samurai stuff right now.
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   I don't have the time to take
    *   a lawyer's correspondence
    *   course...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Why does he believe I'm a
    *   salesman!? Insurance, then
    *   extinguishers... Now this!!)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Press Conference Ticket ****************
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   ...?
    *   What's that?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   It's a ticket for the press
    *   conference.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   You were going to give one
    *   after winning the Grand Prix,
    *   right?
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Huh?
    *   Me?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Yes. While you were in-costume
    *   no less.
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Um, I never heard anything
    *   like that, dude. I only heard
    *   about the stage show.
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   I always leave that kind of
    *   stuff to my manager.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (He didn't know...?
    *   That's odd...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Radio Transceiver **********************
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   ...Mr. Nick?
    *   What are you going to do with
    *   that?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   I don't know yet, but I
    *   figured I could at least show
    *   it to him...
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Is that a transceiver?
    *   Hey, it looks like a real nice
    *   one too.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   I got it as a "present" from
    *   someone.
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Hmm? Interesting.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   I've also been instructed to
    *   take your case.
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Is that what you heard from
    *   the transceiver?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Yes.
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Dude, that's terrible! Don't
    *   let some disembodied voice
    *   boss you around!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (This coming from a man
    *   with a cell phone on his
    *   wrist...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Will Powers profile ********************
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   I've seen him somewhere
    *   before... Is he a member of my
    *   fan club?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   That's Mr. Powers.
    *   Isn't he supposed to be kind
    *   of like a mentor to you?
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Powers...?
    *   Oh yeah! He's the guy on that
    *   kid's exercise program.
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   I gave him an autograph just
    *   the other day.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (He doesn't see Mr. Powers
    *   as a mentor at all...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Juan Corrida profile *******************
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Man, it's too bad he's dead...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   You killed him...
    *   That's the most logical
    *   conclusion, don't you agree?
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Dude, what are you talking
    *   about!?
    *   You're making a huge mistake.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   If that's such a mistake, then
    *   why did they issue an arrest
    *   warrant for you!?
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Hold on a sec.
    *   I'm gonna ask the guy in
    *   charge of this place, OK?
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   ...
    *   ...
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Stars sure know a lot of
    *   people, don't they?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (I wonder if that phone even
    *   really gets reception in
    *   here...)
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   ...Um, I guess you're right
    *   about the warrant after all.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Ladies and gentlemen, I
    *   believe we might be making
    *   some progress here!)

    *   Yeah...
    *   I'm such a handsome devil.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Uh... Um, yeah...
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   And I'm way good at sports!
    *   Karate, tennis, judo, soccer,
    *   football, hockey, fencing...
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Dude, it's no wonder I'm so
    *   popular.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Uh... Um, yeah...
    *   (You're also good at sitting
    *   in a jail cell, Mr. Popular.)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Any other evidence *********************
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   Dude, I know I like to throw
    *   money around,
    *
    * Engarde:
    *   but it's not like I buy
    *   anything and everything.
    *
    * Phoenix:

    *   up for sale anyway!)

    Engarde:
      ...Well, dude, I think it's
      about time for me to get
      going.
    
    Phoenix:
      Please, wait!
      ...I really need to take your
      case!
    
    Engarde:
      There's always other people in
      need of a lawyer, right? Want
      me to introduce you to a few?
    
    Pearl:
      Please!
      Please let Mr. Nick represent
      you!
    
    Engarde:
      Man, oh man. Lawyers these
      days. Now you dudes use kids
      to pull in clients too?
    
    Phoenix:
      If you don't take me as your
      lawyer, then De Killer is
      going to...!
    
    Engarde:
      ...
    
    Engarde:
      Wait... What did you just say?
    
    Phoenix:
      "De Killer"...
    
    Engarde:
      D-De Killer!?
    
    Phoenix:
      (...What's he doing?
      He looks like he's mulling
      something over...)
    
    Engarde:
      ...
    
    Engarde:
      Alright, dude.
      I accept your terms.
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh?
    
    Engarde:
      I'll let you represent me in
      court.
    
    Pearl:
      W-We did it!
      We did it, Mr. Nick!
    
    Phoenix:
      Uh, yeah...
    
    Phoenix:
      (I don't feel any better for
      it... And he doesn't look too
      happy either...)
    
    Engarde:
      Go ahead, ask me anything.
      I'll help out as much as I

    *AFTER TALKING TO ENGARDE*
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      (...I guess this is about all
      I'm going to get out of
      him...)
    
    Pearl:
      Mr. Nick?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah?
    
    Pearl:
      Let's ask one last thing.
    
    Pearl:
      Let's test Mr. Engarde to see
      if he really is innocent or
      not...
    
    Phoenix:
      W-We can do that...?
    
    Pearl:
      Yes.
    
    Pearl:
      If you use this...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Maya's Magatama!)
    
    Pearl:
      He won't be able to hide any
      secrets from you, Mr. Nick.
    
    Pearl:
      I'm sure of it.
    
    Phoenix:
      (I get it...!)
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Mr. Engarde, I'd like to
      ask you one more question.
    
    Phoenix:
      Please answer me honestly.
    
    Engarde:
      What is it, dude?
    
    Phoenix:
      Did you kill Mr. Juan Corrida?
    
    Engarde:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      Please put the phone away and
      answer this question yourself.
    
    Engarde:
      Alright.
      Just so we're clear, dude,
    
    Engarde:
      I didn't kill anyone, and that
      includes Juan Corrida, OK?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Pearl:
      Well, Mr. Nick?
    
    Phoenix:
      Nothing.
      Not a chain or lock in sight.
    
    Pearl:
      Which means...
      I think it is alright to trust
      him.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Yeah, it does appear that
      way.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Well, at least I can breathe
      a sigh of relief knowing my
      client is innocent.)
    
    Engarde:
      Um... The trial's tomorrow,
      right?
    
    Engarde:
      I'm counting on you, dude.
    
    
                                                 To be continued.

      Well, at least we were able to
      get Mr. Matt Engarde as our
      client.
    
    Phoenix:
      And we know that he didn't
      do it...
      Which is very important...
    
    Pearl:
      So!
      So now what should we do!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Well, the trial is tomorrow.
      And we only get this one
      chance.
    
    Phoenix:
      There's only one way to prove
      Mr. Engarde's innocence.
    
    Phoenix:
      We have to find the real
      killer.
    
    Pearl:
      OK!
      Then let's start looking!

    + Phoenix:
    +   There is a giant building
    +   just outside the window.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's the Gatewater Hotel, a
    +   high-class, luxury hotel.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Actually, the crime happened
    +   at the recently completed
    +   hotel in the center of town,
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   the Gatewater Imperial Hotel.
    +

    +   Ah, it's OK...
    +   I already did that...
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   ...The watering can... Where
    +   are you, Mr. Watering Can...?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Pearls gets too wound up if

    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Y-Yeah, that's right.
    +
    + Pearl:

    +++ Bookshelf ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    + Phoenix:
    +   Difficult-looking legal books
    +   stand in a formidable row.
    +   They mock me.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Oh! Do you need to look
    +   something up in one of these
    +   law books, Mr. Nick!?
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Wh-Which book is it!?
    +   Which book do you need!?
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   ...

    +   Umm... I can't read those hard

    +   My desk.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Since I don't have time to
    +   sit, it's unusually clean...
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Oh! I cleaned it up some more
    +   for you last night!

    March 21
    Gatewater Hotel
    Viola Hall
    
    Phoenix:
      Looks like the investigation
      is still in full swing.
    
    Phoenix:
      The hotel staff and the police
      are running around like a
      bunch of headless chickens.
    
    Pearl:
      I wonder if we can do any
      investigating of our own in
      this kind of atmosphere...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Well, got to roll up the
      sleeves and try, I guess.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ Doors on the left ++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a grand set of doors
    +   over there.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's the doors Maya followed
    +   the bellboy out of, only to
    +   disappear...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   ...If only we had all gone
    +   together...
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Chandelier +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   That is such a beautiful
    +   sight.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The chandelier?
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Yes.
    +   But I can't believe it...
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   I can't believe that such a
    +   terrible murder happened under
    +   such beautiful lights...
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   It's shocking.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ The stage ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   The awards ceremony was held
    +   on that stage just last night.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It was really fabulous.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   You just reminded me of the
    +   circus for a second.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   I wonder if everyone is
    +   alright.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (I heard that Berry Big Circus
    +   just recently started holding
    +   performances again...)

    + Phoenix:
    +   I'm sure they're all fine,
    +   Pearls.

    + Pearl:
    +   We ate at this table last
    +   night, didn't we?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Yes.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   I was really happy then.
    +
    + Phoenix:

    Lotta:
      Hey! Mr. Cop fella!
      The thief's showed his face!
    
    Phoenix:
      Wh-Wh-What!?
    
    Lotta:
      Arrest him! Put him on trial!
      Find him guilty!
      Give him the death penalty!
    
    Phoenix:
      Wh-What's wrong, Lotta!?
      Are you feeling alright?
    
    Lotta:
      Looked here and there and
      up and down the mountain,
      but it ain't here!
    
    Lotta:
      So why don't ya just hurry up
      and give it back to me, ya
      creep!
    
    Pearl:
      Um, what are you looking
      for...?
    
    Lotta:
      My CAMERA!
      C-A-M-E-R-A!
    
    Lotta:
      It's my life blood! I'm gonna
      die without my $700 camera!!
    
    Phoenix:
      Y-Your camera...?
    
    Lotta:
      Look, don't lots of people say
      the criminal always goes back
      to the scene of the crime!?
    
    Lotta:
      And lookie lookie, here ya
      are!
    
    Phoenix:
      Yep. Here I am... Faced with
      a Lotta trouble.

    +++ Teddy bear +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I can understand flowers in
    +   front of the dressing rooms,
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   but what are stuffed bears
    +   doing here...?
    +
    + Lotta:
    +   I didn't touch them! Wasn't
    +   me, I tell ya! I give ya my
    +   word!
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Why do I get the impression
    +   Lotta helped herself to one
    +   of them...?)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Flowers on the left ++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Compared to the flowers on the
    +   other side of the hall, these
    +   are much more gorgeous.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Let's see... Record companies,
    +   fan clubs, company workers,
    +   family...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Carrying all these flowers
    +   home would be hard, I think...
    +
    + Lotta:
    +   Yeah, that's what I thought
    +   too, so I was a nice enough
    +   gal to lend a helpin' hand!
    +
    + Lotta:
    +   ...Secretly, of course.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (I have a feeling one of these
    +   days, I'm going to end up
    +   defending her in court...)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Door on the left +++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a piece of paper taped
    +   to the door that says, "Juan
    +   Corrida's Room".
    +
    + Lotta:
    +   So that's the scene of the
    +   murder, I reckon.
    +
    + Lotta:
    +   I thought somethin' had gone
    +   on that night,
    +
    + Lotta:
    +   but I didn't never think it
    +   was murder.
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Door on the right ++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a piece of paper taped
    +   to the door that says, "Matt
    +   Engarde's Room".
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   So Mr. Engarde was here during
    +   his break, right?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   That's what he claims.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Hmm... The crime scene...
    +   If he had wanted to get to
    +   Mr. Corrida's room...)
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (He would have had to pass
    +   through this hallway.)

    Engarde's Hotel Room
    
    Pearl:
      Um... Where are we?
    
    Phoenix:
      We're in Mr. Matt Engarde's
      dressing room... This is our
      client's room.
    
    ? ? ?:
      May I help you with something?
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, uh... We're...
    
    ? ? ?:
      You're Mr. Engarde's lawyer,
      correct?
      I gathered as much.
    
    ? ? ?:
      I also looked for lawyers on
      my end, but to no avail.
    
    Phoenix:
      Um... How did you know I'm his
      lawyer...?
    
    ? ? ?:
      You were just saying that he
      is your client.
    
    ? ? ?:
      In a situation like this, the
      only person who would use such
      a word would be his lawyer.
    
    Pearl:
      Wow...
    
    ? ? ?:
      It's simple deduction, really.
    
    ? ? ?:
      The trial is tomorrow, and
      Mr. Engarde's situation is
      looking rather grim.
    
    ? ? ?:
      So you came here, one stop in
      your mad dash, to find clues
      to build his case, correct?
    
    Phoenix:
      Well, you're not totally
      right, but you're not totally
      off either.
    
    Pearl:
      It's really not the time to be
      showing off, Mr. Nick.
    
    Andrews:
      I am Adrian Andrews.
    
    Andrews:
      I hate to waste time, so let's
      get down to business.
    
    Phoenix:
      A-Alright...

    +++ Red suitcase +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's probably Mr. Engarde's
    +   suitcase.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   For someone who was only
    +   going to be here for the award
    +   show, this is a lot of stuff.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Looks like he has about three
    +   days' worth of clothes in
    +   here.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Stars really are different
    +   from us, aren't they...?
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Bedroom ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   That's the bedroom over there.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   That's a bed...?
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Wow, they have really big beds
    +   here!
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Sofa +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's some samurai-looking
    +   clothes on the sofa here.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Um, I think that jacket
    +   looking thing is called a
    +   "happi".
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Whatever it is, I'm sure
    +   something like that would make
    +   a great souvenir.)
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Maya would be absolutely
    +   thrilled...)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Table ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Looks like dishes left over
    +   from dinner...
    +   A dinner for two, at that.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   I'm sure they're Mr. Engarde
    +   and Ms. Andrews' plates.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Looks like they had T-bone
    +   steaks... What's with Global
    +   Studios and T-bone steaks...?
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ The plate on the bottom right ++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a giant bone sitting
    +   on the plate.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   I...
    +   I don't really like meat...
    +

    + Phoenix:
    +   (There's something... weird

      We're in Mr. Juan Corrida's
      room, Pearls.
    
    Pearl:
      Mr. Corrida...?
    
    Phoenix:
      The victim... Which makes this
      the crime scene too.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Oh!
      It's you!
    
    Gumshoe:
      So!? What's happened!?
      The kidnapper!
      Has he contacted you again!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Not yet. He probably won't
      until we win Mr. Engarde's
      acquittal.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Umm...
      You doing OK, pal?
      Hanging in there?
    
    Phoenix:
      (I just want Maya to be
      alright...)
    
    Pearl:
      ...
    
    Gumshoe:
      We don't have a lot of time
      left, but I'm going to help
      you as much as I can, pal.
    
    Phoenix:
      Can you do that?
      Even if we want to look around
      the crime scene...?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Just this once...
      "Special circumstances" right,
      pal?
    
    Gumshoe:
      I'll even tell you everything
      I know.
      But you've gotta keep quiet.
    
    Gumshoe:
      It's my neck on the line here.
    
    Phoenix:
      Thank you.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Oh, that's right.
      I got you guys a map of the
      hotel, pal.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Here you go, little missy.
    
    Pearl:
      Wow, you're giving it to me!?
      Thank you!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Ha ha. Wouldn't want you to
      get lost in a hotel too big
      for its own good.
    
    Pearl:
      Mr. Nick!
      I got a map!
    
    Phoenix:
      That's great, Pearls!
    
    Pearl:
      ...
    
    Pearl:
      Um... But Mr. Nick, I can't
      read what it says...

    EXAMINE
    -------
    
    +++ Refrigerator +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There are all sorts of things
    +   in this refrigerator...
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   The carrot juice bottle and
    +   the tomato juice bottle are
    +   both empty...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Empty...?
    +   (It's too much of a hassle to
    +   throw them away, I guess.)
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   They're all vegetable juices.
    +   I guess he must've been a real
    +   health nut.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   ...Oh! There's a beet, some
    +   ketchup, and a bottle of
    +   strawberry jam too!
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Maybe red was his favorite
    +   color...?
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Bears ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Wow, there are a lot of
    +   bears!
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Alarm clock ones, collector's
    +   editions, stuffed teddies,
    +   plastic models...)
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (It's pretty overwhelming...
    +   Is there a kind of bear he
    +   doesn't have...?)
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   There's even a few in the
    +   trash can...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Yeah...
    +   I get the feeling maybe the
    +   guy didn't really like bears.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Poor teddies...
    +
    + --------------------------------------------
    +
    +   It's hard to "bear" with all
    +   these problems... Growl!
    +
    +   Aha! Aha! Aha! Aha! Aha!
    +   Aha! Aha! Aha! Aha! Aha!
    +   Aha! Aha! Aha! Aha! Aha!
    +
    + --------------------------------------------
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   ...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (I don't think I want to
    +   "bear" with the trauma the
    +   last case caused me...)
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   What's wrong, Mr. Nick?
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Desk +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Hmph!
    +   It's so messy here!
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Pearls really likes things
    +   neat and tidy, I take it...)
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   There are a lot of electronic
    +   things in here that I've never
    +   seen before.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Hey, Mr. Nick!
    +   Tell me what they are, pretty
    +   please?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   OK.
    +   That over there is a "watch".
    +   You wear it on your wrist.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   ...
    +   I know what a watch is...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Oops. For a second there,
    +   I forgot I was talking with
    +   Pearls, not Maya...)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Blue suitcase ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a suitcase. There are so
    +   many things in it that I bet
    +   it barely closes.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's his clothes, a dryer,
    +   an electric shaver,
    +   a calculator...
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Do all stars pack too much
    +   stuff like Mr. Corrida?
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Table on the right side ++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It looks like Mr. Corrida had
    +   dinner last night.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   This bottle...
    +   It's tomato juice.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (We had a lot of food at the
    +   award show last night...)
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (But I wonder if the stars had
    +   gone onstage after only eating
    +   a meager meal like this...)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Bedroom ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   So that's a bed, right?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Yup. It's big, but it's a bed.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Aaah! Mr. Nick!
    +   It's sooooo soft!
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (Big beds must be a rarity for
    +   her...)
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Floor mess near the guitar case ++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Bottles of cosmetics are
    +   scattered all over the floor.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This is probably where
    +   Mr. Corrida fought his
    +   assailant.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   What's this glass fragment
    +   from...?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A flower vase maybe? There are
    +   flowers on the floor, but I
    +   don't know what they are.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   You don't know much about
    +   flowers, do you Mr. Nick?
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Guitar case ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This is... a guitar case, I
    +   guess. A little beat up, but
    +   still useable.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   That's strange.
    +   The guitar is not here...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Maybe he forgot to bring
    +   it to the show?
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   But Mystic Maya...
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   She said the bright red guitar
    +   was the Jammin' Ninja's
    +   signature item...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (That's true...)
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Huh?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   This guitar case is wet.
    +   But it's only wet on top of
    +   the lid...
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Yeah... There's no water
    +   inside the case...
    +   This is water, isn't it...?
    +
    + *Guitar Case added to the
    + Court Record.*
    +
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    +++ Wine glass +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's a beautiful wine glass,
    +   and there's... tomato juice
    +   in it.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Ewww. Tomato juice.
    +   I don't really like it much.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   There's a bottle of it on the
    +   table over there. That's
    +   probably where this came from.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   But doesn't it seem weird?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   ...What seems weird?
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   I mean, everything else is
    +   scattered all over the floor.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   ...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   (She's right. The flower vase
    +   was broken and the make-up
    +   is strewn everywhere.)
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Why is this glass the only
    +   thing that's still alright...?
    +

    PRESENT (TO GUMSHOE)

    *** Radio Transceiver **********************
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   That's your "present" from
    *   the kidnapper, huh?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   While you're talking, it sends
    *   and receives radio waves...
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   If we could trace that...
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Yeah! We could use it to find
    *   out where the bad guy is!
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (It uses radio waves, huh?)
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   I got it!
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   I'll go find a radio scanner,
    *   and let you borrow it, pal!

    *** Guitar Case ****************************
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   What can you tell me about
    *   this guitar case?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Oh, that.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   This is just what I heard,
    *   pal, but that's the Jammin'
    *   Ninja's signature item.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   The guitar case?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   No, not that! What do you take
    *   me as? I mean the guitar
    *   inside, of course!
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   But... The guitar is missing.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Yeah, we looked for it too.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   It's not normal for a person
    *   to forget to bring their most
    *   famous item to an award show.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (It's starting to sound like
    *   that red guitar is related to
    *   this case after all...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Wine Glass *****************************
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   So about this wine glass...
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Ah, so you noticed it, pal.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   The whole crime scene was a
    *   mess, but this glass was the
    *   only thing that was untouched.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   You noticed that too,
    *   Detective Gumshoe...?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   No, actually Ms. von Karma
    *   noticed it first.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Yeah... Pearls noticed it
    *   before me too...
    *   Hey, wait a minute.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   So... does that mean Ms. von
    *   Karma's coming here...?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Yeah, she's coming.
    *   Man, you're going to be in so
    *   much trouble, pal.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   I think it'd be best if you
    *   didn't bump into her here.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   You can bet the instant I see
    *   her, I'll be running the 1,000
    *   meter dash.

    *   It makes you want to say, "I
    *   can't believe this is the
    *   scene of a murder."
    *
    * Phoenix:

    *   I really want to help you look

    * Pearl:
    *   OK.
    *   What is it?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Don't ever pick up a whip, OK?
    *   Don't even think about it.
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Huh!?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   If you ever find yourself
    *   thinking you want one,
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   try to make due with a good
    *   slap to the face. Got that?
    *   Slap the person in the face.

    * Gumshoe:
    *   Promise me, OK?

    * Phoenix:
    *   Yeah, probably because she's

    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Nah, even with her helmet

    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   No matter what I do, I really
    *   stink at talking with people
    *   like her.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   As soon as I open my mouth,
    *   I get all flustered.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   See, she's one of those women

    *   who "gets things done".
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Yeah, she does give that sort

    *   it all together.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Compared to her, you can
    *   easily tell I'm a "can't do

    * Gumshoe:

      Wh-What's that beeping

    Phoenix:
      (Hmm... I've heard this sound

    Gumshoe:
      It's Ms. von Karma...
    
    Pearl:
      Huh?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Whenever I hear that sound,
      for some reason, she pops
      out of nowhere and whips me!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Come to think of it, that

      S-Sorry!

      Later, pal!

    von Karma:
      At last, you reveal your true

      Mr. Phoenix Wright!
    
    Phoenix:
      (*gulp* Would it be too much
      to ask for you to be nice to
      me for a change...?)
    
    von Karma:
      So you're the type to steal
      information from pitifully
      hopeless detectives!
    
    von Karma:
      That's very dishonorable of
      you!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Owww!)
    
    von Karma:
      Hey!
      Don't you dare run away,

      Ah!
    
    von Karma:
      I didn't think the detectives

      Uwaah!
    
    von Karma:
      Detective!
      Come over here for a second!

      ooooooooooooooooooooow!
    
    von Karma:
      ...Hmph.
    
    von Karma:
      I feel better knowing at least
      you were man enough to face
      your punishment.
    
    Phoenix:
      (He was so scared, he just
      froze up on the spot...)
    
    von Karma:
      Mr. Phoenix Wright!
    
    von Karma:
      You... You have soiled my
      perfect prosecution record.
    
    von Karma:
      I'll never forget that.
    
    von Karma:
      This time...
      Victory is mine!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      Victory is yours?
      Is that all this means

      Come, Scruff-face!
      The investigation briefing
      is about to begin.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Y-Yes, sir!
    
    von Karma:
      This isn't over yet...
      I swear on my family's honor!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Ow! Now what did she throw
      at me...!?)
    
    Phoenix:
      (What is this...?)
    
    Gumshoe:
      ...Well, I guess this means
      I've gotta get back to the
      precinct now, pal.
    
    Gumshoe:
      If you ever need me, come
      down to the Criminal Affairs
      Department, alright?
    
    Gumshoe:
      And if you can, try not to let
      Ms. von Karma see you...

    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's called an "autograph".
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Auto-graff?
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   It's got Mr. Corrida's
    +   name written on it, so it's
    +   his autograph.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   I can't read it at all.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   To be honest, I've never seen
    +   writing that looks like this.
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Ah, it's a special way of
    +   writing called "cursive".
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Look here. See how it says,
    +   "To my dearest Wendy" in
    +   more normal letters here?
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Th-This sloppy, unreadable
    +   writing! It's crazy and cruel
    +   to give this to someone!

    *   (The bright red guitar... The

    + Phoenix:
    +   There are computers and files

    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   I guess the detectives don't

    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   A poster of a female
    +   police officer...
    +
    + Phoenix:
    +   Wait, no. That's the latest
    +   "Babes in Uniform" calendar.
    +   My bad.

    +++ The Blue Badger ++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Aww, it's kind of cute.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Mr. Nick, what is this stuffed
    +   animal's name...?
    +
    + Chief:
    +   That's the "Blue Badger"!
    +
    + Chief:
    +   It was my idea! I made it!
    +   It's this precinct's mascot,
    +   you know.
    +
    + Pearl:
    +   Oh, wow...
    +
    + Chief:
    +   I'll get him assigned mascot

    *** Guitar Case ****************************
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   What can you tell me about
    *   this guitar case...?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Oh, that.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   This is just what I heard,
    *   pal, but that's the Jammin'
    *   Ninja's signature item.
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   But... The guitar wasn't in
    *   his hotel room...
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Yeah, we looked for it too.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   It's not normal for a person
    *   to forget to bring their most
    *   famous item to an award show.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (It's starting to sound like
    *   that red guitar is related to
    *   this case after all...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Wine Glass *****************************
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   The stuff in that glass is
    *   tomato juice, pal.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Tomato juice...
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   I heard the victim really
    *   loved that stuff.
    *   Favorite drink in the world.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   ...It was his favorite drink?
    *   (First time I've heard
    *   that...)
    *

    *** Magazine Clipping **********************
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   We're pretty interested in
    *   this bit of gossip ourselves.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   The scandal with Mr. Corrida?
    *   But why?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Well, two years ago...
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   A woman committed suicide.
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Suicide...
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Her name was Celeste Inpax.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   And she was Juan Corrida's
    *   manager.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   The victim's manager...?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   But that's not all, pal.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Ms. Inpax was Ms. Adrian
    *   Andrews' mentor...
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   She taught Ms. Andrews
    *   everything she knew about the
    *   business from square one.
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Her mentor...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (A woman who was both
    *   Mr. Corrida's manager and
    *   Ms. Andrews' mentor...)
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Could her suicide have
    *   something to do with this
    *   case...?)
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Do you want to know more
    *   about her, pal?
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Juan Corrida profile *******************
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   I'm not a real fan of action
    *   shows or anything...
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   But I know who Juan Corrida
    *   and Matt Engarde are.
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Juan Corrida, though, he was
    *   always desperately trying to
    *   be better than Matt Engarde.
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Adrian Andrews profile *****************
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   There's something interesting
    *   about this woman, pal.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   And what is that?
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   You don't know?
    *   Haven't you heard the gossip
    *   about her?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Gossip, huh...)
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (I wonder if he knows anything
    *   about that article...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Anything else **************************
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   If I'm caught leaking info to
    *   you here in the precinct,
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   my neck's gonna be in a
    *   ringer, pal.
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   Y-Your neck!?
    *   No!
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   Ah, I mean my "neck" as a
    *   joke...
    *
    * Gumshoe:
    *   But yeah, ask me about things
    *   that have to do with the case
    *   only, alright pal?

      I'm getting sick of dealing
      with one foolish idiot after
      another...

      You can't seem to stop allying
      yourself with the enemy, can
      you?

      I don't need a traitor in my
      midst.

      Y-Y-You don't...
      You don't mean...
    
    von Karma:
      I do.
      Scruffy.

      You have thirty minutes to get
      out of here. You are no longer
      needed. Good bye.
    
    Pearl:
      Th-That's...
    
    Gumshoe:
      W-Wait...
      Please wait, sir!
    
    Gumshoe:
      If I don't get this month's
      pay, I'll star--
    
    von Karma:
      Quiet!

      This is Mr. Edgeworth?
    
    Edgeworth:
      What am I going to do with
      you...?
    
    Edgeworth:
      Still blaming others when
      things go wrong?
    
    Edgeworth:
      You haven't changed a bit,
      Franziska.
    
    von Karma:

      ...
    
    von Karma:
      ...
      Y... You...
    
    von Karma:
      How dare you show your face
      to me without a shred of shame
      upon it!?
    
    von Karma:
      You've soiled the Von Karma
      name and dragged it through
      the mud.
    
    von Karma:
      Run away with your tail
      between your legs like the
      ill-bred dog you are!
    
    Edgeworth:
      Are you talking about the Von
      Karma family creed? "To be
      perfect in every way..."
    
    Edgeworth:
      Then let's hear it, Franziska.
      How are things going?
    
    Edgeworth:
      I hear you are having a rough
      time maintaining perfection in
      this country.
    
    von Karma:
      Y-You!
    
    Edgeworth:
      You seem to be getting
      crushed under the weight of
      it all.
    
    Edgeworth:
      That's why I came back.
    
    von Karma:
      Keep your assumptions to
      yourself!
    
    von Karma:
      I... I haven't given in yet!
      I won't lose!
    
    von Karma:
      This case is mine!
      I'll never hand it over to
      you! Never!
    
    von Karma:
      Mr. Phoenix Wright!
    
    von Karma:
      I will see you tomorrow...
      In court.
    
    von Karma:
      It will be a clinical lesson
      on the meaning of "total
      victory"!
    
    Edgeworth:
      Hmph. Still the same wild
      mare she always was.

    PRESENT (TO EDGEWORTH)
    ----------------------
    
    *** Suicide Report *************************
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   I don't like to look through
    *   reports.
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   I like suicide reports even
    *   less.
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   Worst of all are the reports
    *   that have multiple parts like
    *   that one. That has two.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   ...Two parts?
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   What you just handed me is
    *   the first part of the report...
    *   Here is the second part.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (The second part of the
    *   report is about an
    *   attempted suicide...)
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   The attempter's name...!
    *   It's "Adrian Andrews"!
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   M-Ms. Andrews...?
    *   Um, what did she do?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   She...
    *   She tried to kill herself...?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   She doesn't seem like the kind
    *   of person to try and kill
    *   herself...
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   You think she's a strong
    *   career woman?
    *   That is just her image.
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   Adrian Andrews... She has a
    *   certain secret she's always
    *   trying to hide.
    *
    * Pearl:
    *   A secret...?
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   ...Her "co-dependency".
    *   That's the key word.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   ("Co-dependency"... The word
    *   most unsuited to describing
    *   that woman...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Attempted Suicide Report ***************
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   Appearances can be
    *   deceiving.
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   It's such a cliché saying...
    *   But it's cliché because it's
    *   true.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Ms. Andrews...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (To think that behind that
    *   unwavering, brave front...)
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (She's been hiding this
    *   weakness in fear...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Juan Corrida profile *******************
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   There is an interesting rumor
    *   about this man...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   You mean the one about
    *   Ms. Andrews getting close to
    *   him?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   But that's pretty common
    *   tabloid fare, isn't it?
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   I don't take things at face
    *   value when there's more to be
    *   found...
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Matt Engarde profile *******************
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   While I was abroad,
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   these deplorable types of
    *   actors became popular, I
    *   take it.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   Well, "refreshing like a
    *   spring breeze" is his motto...
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   "R-Refreshing"!?
    *   And what is so refreshing
    *   about a spring breeze!?
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Sounds like the pollen is not
    *   treating him well this
    *   year...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Adrian Andrews profile *****************
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   Adrian Andrews...
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   She holds a large secret
    *   within herself.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   A secret...?
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   You can't help but feel that
    *   this whole case revolves
    *   around her...
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Celeste Inpax profile ******************
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   Hmm... This woman is another
    *   key to the case.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   D-Do you really think so?
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   She was Adrian Andrews'
    *   mentor a long time ago,
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   but suddenly, she was called
    *   away by a production, and
    *   became Juan Corrida's manager.
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   And then, a few months
    *   later...
    *   Celeste Inpax died.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   B-But her death was a
    *   suicide, right?
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   Yes.
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   But there is still one riddle
    *   left unsolved...
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   A riddle...?
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   Her suicide note.
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   It went missing.
    *   No one could find it.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (A suicide note that just
    *   vanished, huh...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Any other evidence *********************
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   I have no interest in talking
    *   about useless evidence.
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   Put a little more thought into
    *   what you show me... Phoenix
    *   Wright.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Still as stuck up as ever...)
    *
    ********************************************
    
    *** Any other profile **********************
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   We are looking into leads,
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   but we can only look into a
    *   few key players with our
    *   limited resources.
    *
    * Edgeworth:
    *   There's no reason for us to
    *   waste our energy investigating
    *   this person.
    *
    * Phoenix:
    *   (Why don't you just tell it to

      That's right.

    ? ? ?:
      So I suggest you win a quick
      acquittal, my friend.
    
    ? ? ?:
      At any cost.
      Wouldn't you agree?
    
    Phoenix:
      Wait!
      Maya!
      Let me hear her!
    
    ? ? ?:
      ...Very well.
    
    Maya:
      ...Ask my...!
    
    Phoenix:
      Maya!
      Is that you!?
    
    Maya:
      ...Sis...
      Ask my sis!
    
    ...*beep*...
    
    Phoenix:
      Maya!
      Maya!
      ...Dammit! He cut me off!
    
    Pearl:
      Mystic Maya said, "Ask my
      sis," didn't she?
    
    Phoenix:
      "Sis"...?
      What does she mean by that...?
    
      Come on, Phoenix!
      *sigh*
      You're a hopeless one...
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, s-sorry...
      ...Ack!!
    
    Phoenix:
      Mia!
    
    Mia:
      I have a message from Maya,
      so come, ask me anything you
      want about her.

      I could really go for some
      apple pie...
    
    Maya:
      I mean, at a time like this,
      sweets are the only way
      to go!
    
    Maya:
      I have to stay positive!
      He promised he wasn't going to

    +
    + Maya:
    +   And these...
    +   They feel like barrels.
    +
    + Maya:

    Maya:
      If I use this, maybe I can get

      I had a feeling this card

      I'm such a genius!

    Engarde:
      Adrian did it...?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...That's what it looks like.
    
    Engarde:
      Dude, no way!
      That woman couldn't do
      anything like that.
    
    Phoenix:
      In court today, there will
      be a mountain of evidence
      that will implicate you.
    
    Engarde:
      A mountain of evidence...?
    
    Phoenix:
      I'm certain there is someone
      out there trying very hard to
      pin this whole thing on you.
    
    Engarde:
      Please, Mr. Lawyer!
      Dude, like I said yesterday...
    
    Engarde:
      I'm "refreshing like a spring
      breeze", alright?
    
    Engarde:
      I can't let any sort of
      scandal ruin that.
    
    Phoenix:
      I understand...
    
    ? ? ?:
      Well, it's almost time.
    
    Phoenix:
      Mia...
    
    Mia:
      We must get a complete
      acquittal today.
    
    Phoenix:
      I know...
    
    Phoenix:
      I can't focus on Maya's
      situation right now.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Or Pearls' either.
    
    Phoenix:
      No matter what, I have to
      focus on winning this case
      by the end of the day!
    
    Mia:
      Indeed.
      Well, let's get going!
    
    ...*beep beep beep*...
    
    Phoenix:
      (It's him!)
    
    ...*beep*...
    
    Phoenix:
      This is Wright!
    
    ? ? ?:
      Good morning.
      This is it, Mr. Attorney; the
      day of the trial.
    
    Phoenix:
      Maya... She's unharmed,
      right!?
    
    ? ? ?:
      Well...
    
    ? ? ?:
      When I checked on her earlier
      this morning, she seemed a
      bit, how shall we say, tired.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...!
    
    ? ? ?:
      Don't worry.
      People don't die that easily.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Besides, what you really
      should be concentrating on, is
      winning today's trial.
    
    Phoenix:
      G...Grrrr...
    
    ? ? ?:
      For myself, you must win
      today's trial.
    
    ? ? ?:
      Which is why...
    
    ? ? ?:
      I sent you a little present
      this morning.
    
    Phoenix:
      Present?
      What in the world would you
      want to give me!?
    
    ? ? ?:
      You'll figure it out once the
      trial opens... even if you
      don't "like" my gift...
    
    ? ? ?:
      I expect you to graciously
      accept it, and win the day's
      contest... If you please.
    
    Phoenix:
      Wait!
    
    ...*beep*...
    
    Phoenix:
      (The kidnapper sent me a
      "present"...?)
    
    Engarde:
      Mr. Lawyer dude?
      Who was that...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Ah, um... No one.
      It has nothing to do with you,
      so forget you heard anything!
    
    Engarde:
      ...Dude, did your nose just
      get longer?

      Court is now in session for
      the trial of Matt Engarde.
    
    Judge:
      Are the prosecution and
      defense ready?
    
    Phoenix:
      The defense is ready, Your
      Honor.

    Judge:
      I say! Mr. Wright!
      What happened to Ms. von
      Karma!?
    
    Phoenix:
      I-I don't know, Your Honor!
      (Why are you getting mad at
      me!?)
    
    Bailiff:
      ...Your Honor!
    
    Judge:
      Please be quiet, bailiff.
      Court is in session.
    
    Judge:
      If you must tell me something,
      please keep it brief.
      Now then, what is it?
    
    Bailiff:
      Prosecutor...
      Prosecutor von Karma has...
    
    Bailiff:
      This morning, Ms. von Karma
      was shot by an unknown
      gunman!
    
    Judge:
      ...
      WWWWWWWHAT!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Sh-Shot!?
    
    Mia:
      Somehow...
    
    Mia:
      I think this is the "present"
      that man was talking about.
    
    Phoenix:
      His "present"...!
    
    Mia:
      Ms. von Karma is one of the
      top prosecutors in the
      country at the moment.
    
    Mia:
      If she disappeared...
    
    Mia:
      This would be to your
      "advantage".
    
    Phoenix:
      (Th-This...
      This is totally insane!)
    
    Phoenix:
      M-Ms. von Karma!
      Is she alright!?
    
    Judge:
      I don't have that answer!
      ...
    
    ? ? ?:
      She's alive and in stable
      condition.
    
    Judge:
      That's good...
      Phew.
    
    Judge:
      ...
      ...!
      Y-Y-You're...
    
    Phoenix:
      (I thought he'd show up...)
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...Your Honor...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Due to the circumstances,
      Ms. Franziska von Karma can
      not appear in court today.
    
    Edgeworth:
      I, Miles Edgeworth, will be
      taking her place.
    
    Edgeworth:
      The prosecution is ready...
      naturally.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Edgeworth:
      Ms. von Karma was shot in her
      right shoulder, and is
      currently undergoing surgery.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Luckily, I have looked this
      case over and am familiar with
      the details.
    
    Edgeworth:
      The prosecution seeks to
      prove the guilt of Mr. Matt
      Engarde.
    
    Judge:
      Th-The court acknowledges
      the prosecution.
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...Wright.
    
    Edgeworth:
      I finally found the answer I
      was struggling for on my long
      journey this past year.
    
    Edgeworth:
      By the time this case comes to
      an end, you too, will know the
      answer.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...!
    
    Edgeworth:
      Now then, the prosecution
      would like to call its first
      witness...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Please bring Detective
      Gumshoe to the witness
      stand!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Edgeworth:
      Witness, your name and
      occupation.
    
    Gumshoe:
      My name's Dick Gumshoe, sir.
    
    Gumshoe:
      I'm a detective down at the
      precinct... for now.
    
    Judge:
      "For now"...?
    
    Gumshoe:
      After this trial's over... I'm
      supposed to turn in my badge,
      sir.
    
    Phoenix:
      (D-Detective Gumshoe...)
    
    Edgeworth:
      The prosecution has no need
      for a depressed witness.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Lift your head up and face
      forward like a proud officer,
      Detective Dick Gumshoe!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Y-Yes, sir!
    
    Edgeworth:
      Now, let's have your
      testimony.
    
    Edgeworth:
      If we want to explore the
      various facets of this case,
      we must start with that.
    
    Mia:
      Get ready, Phoenix.
      This is going to be one very
      rough fight.
    
    Phoenix:
      Yeah...
      It would have to be with
      Edgeworth as my opponent.
    
    Phoenix:
      (The answer he was
      "struggling" for...
      Interesting...)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Show me this "answer" you
      finally found, Edgeworth...)

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- Bare Facts of the Case --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      This murder happened after
      the Hero of Heroes award
      ceremony, sir.
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      The victim, Juan Corrida, was
      found dead in his hotel room.
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      After looking into the cause
      of death, we believe he was
      definitely murdered, sir.
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      At first, we thought there was
      something suspicious about the
      empty guitar case.
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      However, we later found out
      that the guitar case had
      nothing to do with the murder.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
    
    Judge:
      After the award ceremony
      ended, the victim was alone
      in his room...?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Yes, sir!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Both the victim and defendant
      went alone to their rooms,
      sir.
    
    Judge:
      I see.
      Mr. Wright, you may begin your
      cross-examination.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- Bare Facts of the Case --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      This murder happened after
      the Hero of Heroes award
      ceremony, sir.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Would you please give us a
           brief timeline of what
           happened after the ceremony?
    
         Gumshoe:
           OK, pal.
           The ceremony started at 6 PM.
    
         Gumshoe:
           It ended around 8 PM...
           and then there was a short
           break.
    
         Gumshoe:
           A special post-ceremony show
           was supposed to start in the
           lobby 30 minutes later.
    
         Phoenix:
           And that's when the victim's
           body was found, correct?
    
         Edgeworth:
           Which is to say, the murder
           occurred during that thirty
           minute break period.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
           Please continue with your
           testimony, Detective.

    Gumshoe:
      The victim, Juan Corrida, was
      found dead in his hotel room.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           The person who discovered
           the victim's body was
           Adrian Andrews, correct?
    
         Gumshoe:
           ...Yeah.
    
         Judge:
           Who is this "Adrian Andrews"
           you're talking about?
    
         Gumshoe:
           She's the defendant, Matt
           Engarde's, manager. She's a
           really pretty lady... sir.
    
         Judge:
           Ah, so she's a pretty lady...
           I wonder if she will grace us
           with her presence...
    
         Gumshoe:
           When the post-ceremony show
           was about to start, she went
           to get Mr. Engarde.
    
         Gumshoe:
           After visiting his room, she
           next went to the victim's room
           to get him for the show, sir.
    
         Judge:
           I see...
           And that's when she found the
           victim's body...
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      After looking into the cause
      of death, we believe he was
      definitely murdered, sir.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           The cause of death... Wasn't
           that because Mr. Corrida was
           stabbed in the chest...?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Only a careless amateur would
           believe something so brainless
           as that, pal.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Take a good, hard look at the
           crime photo.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Now, a real pro's attention
           would be drawn here, to this
           bandana.
    
         Judge:
           Mmm... "Banana"...
    
         Gumshoe:
           Um, his "bandana", sir...
           That's the thing wrapped
           tightly around his neck, sir.
    
         Judge:
           Ah, yes, yes. I see.
           His banana-scented bandana.
    
         Phoenix:
           Then, what about the knife...?
    
         Gumshoe:
           It seems to have been stuck in
           the victim's chest on purpose
           after his death.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
           We have a crafty murderer
           on our hands here.
    
         *Autopsy Report added to the
         Court Record.*
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      At first, we thought there was
      something suspicious about the
      empty guitar case.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           And why did you think that?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Because it was empty, pal.
    
         Gumshoe:
           The Jammin' Ninja doesn't go
           anywhere without his bright
           red guitar.
    
         Gumshoe:
           And we couldn't find it
           anywhere at the scene of the
           crime.
    
         Judge:
           Oh! Then how about this
           theory!
    
         Judge:
           A fan really wanted the
           guitar and did the crime to
           get it! How's that!?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Um, we thought of that too...
           But...
    
         Phoenix:
           But...?
    
         Gumshoe:
           The only fingerprints on the
           guitar case were the victim's.
    
         Phoenix:
           Only the victim's, huh...?
    
         Judge:
           Hmm... I see.
           Ah, so much for my theory
           then...
    
         *Guitar Case updated in the
         Court Record.*
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      However, we later found out
      that the guitar case had
      nothing to do with the murder.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           What convinced you it had
           nothing to do with the case?
    
         Gumshoe:
           The guitar wasn't at the
           Gatewater Hotel that night.
    
         Judge:
           Well then, where was it?
    
         Gumshoe:
           The bright red guitar was
           eventually found at the TV
           studio.
    
         Gumshoe:
           The victim, Juan Corrida, had
           apparently only taken the case
           with him, sir.
    
         Judge:
           So you mean he forgot to put
           the guitar inside the case...?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yes, sir. Even when he was
           onstage for the ceremony, he
           didn't have his guitar.
    
         Phoenix:
           So that guitar case was empty
           even before he got to the
           hotel...
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yeah, that's right.
           So it really had nothing to do
           with the case after all.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Mia:
      Our first order of business
      should be to gather more
      info from his testimony.
    
    Phoenix:
      But there might be a trap
      set up for us somewhere...
    
    Mia:
      Maybe.
    
    Mia:
      However, setting off traps is
      a part of a lawyer's job too.
    
    Phoenix:
      If you say so...
    
    Mia:
      Of course, we're supposed to
      escape from them too, wouldn't
      you say?

    *After pressing at (3), (4) and (5)*
    
    Edgeworth:
      I believe that is enough.
    
    Edgeworth:
      First, the victim was choked
      to death with his bandana.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Then, after the victim was
      dead, the killer deliberately
      stabbed him with a knife.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Which brings me to my next
      point.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Why then, did the police
      arrest Matt Engarde...?
    
    Edgeworth:
      Because there was reason
      enough to suspect him.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Here it comes...
      Looks like Edgeworth's back
      in full swing...)
    
    Judge:
      Very well.
      Detective Gumshoe, please
      testify about this matter.
    
    Gumshoe:
      Yes, sir!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- Why Arrest Engarde? --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      Matt Engarde and Juan Corrida
      were huge rivals with each
      other.
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      They each thought the other
      guy was "in his way". That's
      motive enough in my book.
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      As for evidence... There's the
      Jammin' Ninja's button.
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      It was ripped off of the ninja
      costume and was found in
      Mr. Engarde's "hakama".
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      The defendant's fingerprints
      were also all over the knife.
    
    (6)
    Gumshoe:
      The defendant bought the knife
      for the crime... Which makes
      this a premeditated murder!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm... So the defendant's
      fingerprints were found on the
      knife used in the stabbing.
    
    Gumshoe:
      It was sort of sticky on the
      handle, so the fingerprints
      came out pretty clearly, sir.
    
    *Knife added to the Court
    Record.*
    
    Gumshoe:
      ...And there's this button.
    
    Judge:
      That was found in the
      defendant's clothes, was it?
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
      And is this button also
      covered in blood...?
    
    Gumshoe:
      Yes, and we know that the
      blood on it is the victim's
      blood, sir.
    
    Phoenix:
      What!?
    
    *Jammin' Ninja's Button added
    to the Court Record.*
    
    Judge:
      All of this points very
      clearly to the defendant,
      doesn't it?
    
    Edgeworth:
      Yes, it most certainly does,
      Your Honor.
      Ready to give in yet, Wright?
    
    Phoenix:
      Hmph!
      I'll find the hole in your
      argument somehow!
    
    Edgeworth:
      You can press as hard as you'd
      like. Just hurry up with your
      usual pointless questions.
    
    Phoenix:
      Grrrrrrrrr...

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- Why Arrest Engarde? --
    
    (1)
    Gumshoe:
      Matt Engarde and Juan Corrida
      were huge rivals with each
      other.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           But in terms of popularity,
           Mr. Engarde won, did he not?
    
         Gumshoe:
           ...Yeah.
           But you know what's ironic,
           pal?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Juan Corrida was always one
           step behind Mr. Engarde in
           everything.
    
         Gumshoe:
           This year it seemed like he'd
           finally caught up, ready for
           the big, final showdown.
    
         Phoenix:
           But Mr. Corrida lost the Grand
           Prix in the end...
    
         Judge:
           That is too bad...
           He must have been pretty
           downhearted after losing.
    
         Edgeworth:
           ...
    
    (2)
    Gumshoe:
      They each thought the other
      guy was "in his way". That's
      motive enough in my book.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Wait just one second here!
    
         Phoenix:
           Mr. Engarde was beating
           Mr. Corrida in the popularity
           polls!
    
         Gumshoe:
           Well, yeah, I guess, but...
    
         Phoenix:
           Which means that in the
           defendant's eyes, the victim
           was not a rival at all!
    
         Phoenix:
           Which means he had no motive
           to kill at all!
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
           Yes, I quite agree.
    
         Judge:
           Well, Detective?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Um, it's not...
           Well...
    
         Gumshoe:
           I guess if you put it that
           way, then yeah, the defendant
           would've had no motive...
    
         Edgeworth:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         Edgeworth:
           Detective. I'm beginning to
           see why you were fired.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Eh!? N-No! Not you too,
           Mr. Edgeworth, sir!
           That's...
    
         Edgeworth:
           I look forward to your pension
           negotiations.
    
         Gumshoe:
           N-N-N-NOOOOOOOOOOO!
    
         Judge:
           Now, now, Detective.
           Let's continue with the
           testimony.
    
         Gumshoe:
           *sniffle* Noooo...
           Not my poor pension too...
    
         Edgeworth:
           Detective!
           If you value your money, I
           suggest you proceed!
    
         Gumshoe:
           Y-Yes, sir!
           We can talk about my pension
           later, sir!
    
         Phoenix:
           (Um, what about what I was
           saying...?
           Hello? Anyone...?)
    
    (3)
    Gumshoe:
      As for evidence... There's the
      Jammin' Ninja's button.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Do you have any proof that
           button belonged to the victim?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Huh?
           What do you mean, pal?
    
         Phoenix:
           Oh.
           Umm, let me put it this way...
    
         Phoenix:
           I'm asking you if you have any
           evidence to back up your claim
           that,
    
         Phoenix:
           "this button was ripped off of
           the Jammin' Ninja's costume".
    
         Gumshoe:
           Huh?
           But can't you tell by just
           looking at it?
    
         Phoenix:
           ...
    
         Gumshoe:
           A-And the victim's blood is
           on it.
    
         Phoenix:
           Anyone could have smeared
           that blood on there afterward.
    
         Gumshoe:
           ...
    
         Gumshoe:
           M-M-Mr. Edgeworth...
           Help me... sir!
    
         Phoenix:
           (Alright! I knew it had to be
           this piece of evidence. Now to
           reel this one in...)
    
         Edgeworth:
           ...Thread.
    
         Phoenix:
           Huh?
    
         Edgeworth:
           The button was attached to the
           costume by thread, obviously.
    
         Edgeworth:
           And that thread snapped when
           the button was torn off.
    
         Edgeworth:
           If you match up the ends of
           the thread on the costume with
           the thread on the button...
    
         Edgeworth:
           it's a perfect match.
    
         Gumshoe:
           Yeah, that's it!
           They're a perfect match, pal!
    
         Phoenix:
           Urk.
    
         Mia:
           That's Edgeworth for you.
           Never misses a beat.
    
    (4)
    Gumshoe:
      It was ripped off of the ninja
      costume and was found in
      Mr. Engarde's "hakama".
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           When was this button found?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Pretty soon after the body was
           found, we rounded up everyone
           who knew Mr. Corrida.
    
         Gumshoe:
           And then we did a search on
           them all. That's when we found
           the button.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
           So it was almost immediately
           after the murder...
    
         Edgeworth:
           The police didn't have the
           free time to lollygag and play
           tricks, unlike some people...
    
         Phoenix:
           (Hey! What is he trying to
           say about me here?)
    
    (5)
    Gumshoe:
      The defendant's fingerprints
      were also all over the knife.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           How were the fingerprints
           arranged on the knife?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Huh?
           What do you mean, pal?
    
         Phoenix:
           By examining the fingerprints,
           you can determine how the
           defendant held the knife.
    
         Phoenix:
           For example, did he hold it
           normally, or overhand...?
    
         Gumshoe:
           Oh! Is that what you meant!?
           Well, we didn't actually think
           of that...
    
         Phoenix:
           (I can't believe the bumbling
           of this department...)
    
         Edgeworth:
           ...Hopeless.
           Were you paying attention to
           the testimony, Wright?
    
         Edgeworth:
           The defendant's fingerprints
           were "all over" the knife.
    
         Edgeworth:
           There is no way to determine
           how the knife was held at the
           moment of the murder.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
           So is the defendant the owner
           of this knife, then?
    
    (6)
    Gumshoe:
      The defendant bought the knife
      for the crime... Which makes
      this a premeditated murder!
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           There is no way this was a
           premeditated murder, even if
           he bought the knife!
    
         Gumshoe:
           Sorry, pal.
           This isn't just some pocket
           knife.
    
         Gumshoe:
           It's not really useful for
           anything, and you can't just
           walk around with it either.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Argh.
           Well, this is not good...)
    
         Phoenix:
           (If the prosecution can prove
           it was a premeditated murder,
           we're done for...)
    
         Mia:
           ...Phoenix.
    
         Phoenix:
           Y-Yes?
    
         Mia:
           There's something very
           interesting about what the
           detective said just now.
    
         Mia:
           Think carefully, before it's
           too late.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (A button covered in the
      victim's blood... And a knife
      with Engarde's fingerprints!)
    
    Mia:
      Be grateful. If the judge were
      more rash, he would've already
      pounded his gavel in closing.
    
    Phoenix:
      We're still in a world of
      trouble...
    
    Mia:
      Well, before any battle, you
      must find your enemy's
      weakness.
    
    Mia:
      So let's find the weakness in
      this testimony, no matter how
      small it may be, OK Phoenix?

    *Present Knife* at (6)
    
    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      Wait a second!
    
    Gumshoe:
      Wh-What?
    
    Phoenix:
      So the basis of your argument
      that this was a premeditated
      murder is simply that
    
    Phoenix:
      my client "bought a knife
      beforehand"?
    
    Gumshoe:
      That's right, pal.
      The defendant...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Did not buy this knife.
    
    Gumshoe:
      H-Huh!?
    
    Phoenix:
      Take a good look at the handle
      of this knife, and you'll know
      what I'm talking about.
    
    Gumshoe:
      ...Huh?
    
    Judge:
      It has a "Gatewater" seal set
      into the handle...
    
    Gumshoe:
      "Gatewater"...?
      I think I've heard that name
      somewhere before.
    
    Phoenix:
      That's the name of the hotel.
      The Gatewater Hotel.
    
    Gumshoe:
      ...
      Uh oh.
    
    Phoenix:
      The murder knife was actually
      property of the hotel!
    
    Phoenix:
      Which means this murder was
      not premeditated!
    
    Judge:
      Yes, that is very true!
      This is a very big...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Heh heh heh...
    
    Judge:
      Wh-What is it, Mr. Edgeworth?
    
    Edgeworth:
      I'm sorry, but the defense is
      simply too careless.
    
    Phoenix:
      What!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      I think whether the crime was
      premeditated or not...
      has already been determined.
    
    Phoenix:
      H-How so!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      I admit this knife is hotel
      property.
    
    Edgeworth:
      There is no one currently on
      the police force that is dumb
      enough not to realize this.
    
    Gumshoe:
      ...But I didn't kn...
      Oh...
      *whimper*
    
    Edgeworth:
      The question is...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Where did this knife come
      from?
    
    Judge:
      Wh-Why that's obvious! It came
      from the victim, Mr. Corrida's
      room...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Sorry, Your Honor, but that is
      incorrect.
    
    Edgeworth:
      The victim ate a last meal
      before he was murdered.
      With that being the case...
    
    Edgeworth:
      I would like to draw the
      court's attention to what is
      on top of the table.
    
    Judge:
      There is a knife and a fork
      on the table!
    
    Judge:
      Then...
    
    Judge:
      Where in the world did this
      knife come from!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      If it pleases the court...
    
    Edgeworth:
      I would like for us to recall
      the room of the defendant,
      Mr. Matt Engarde.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Especially what was on top of
      his table...
    
    Edgeworth:
      There is something missing...
      Perhaps, it is a single knife?
    
    Edgeworth:
      We investigated the leftover
      dishes for fingerprints, and
      while we were investigating,
    
    Edgeworth:
      we came to the conclusion that
      Mr. Matt Engarde's knife was
      missing.
    
    Phoenix:
      Urk...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Mr. Engarde had gone to the
      victim's room with the knife
      he had used during dinner.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Why would he carry a knife on
      a visit?
      To kill, of course.
    
    Edgeworth:
      And with that, I believe the
      prosecution has proven...
    
    Edgeworth:
      This was a premeditated
      murder.
    
    Judge:
      Amazing, Mr. Edgeworth.
      Absolutely brilliant.
      A brilliantly clear deduction.
    
    Mia:
      It seems like Edgeworth had
      this planned from the very
      beginning...
    
    Phoenix:
      (This must be one of those
      "traps", and I just walked
      headlong into it!)
    
    Judge:
      A murder weapon with
      fingerprints, and a button
      from the victim's costume.
    
    Judge:
      There is quite a sizable
      amount of evidence here.
    
    Edgeworth:
      I can safely say that any
      further deliberation is a
      waste of Your Honor's time.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Although...
    
    Edgeworth:
      I wouldn't mind if the defense
      were to present evidence not
      yet shown to the court.
    
    Phoenix:
      (Evidence not yet shown...?)
    
    Mia:
      He means evidence that the
      court hasn't seen yet.
      In other words, new evidence.
    
    Judge:
      What does the defense have
      to say about this, Mr. Wright?
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, well...
    
    Mia:
      Phoenix.
    
    Mia:
      The judge is favoring the
      prosecution right now.
    
    Mia:
      If we answer with something
      wrong here...
    
    Phoenix:
      (That gavel of his will be
      ringing out to the sound of
      our defeat!)
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Wright, do you have some-
      thing important and necessary
      to present to this court?
    
    *** Actually, I do. ************************

    * Judge:
    *   Looks like the defense isn't

    *

    *

    Phoenix:
      One piece of evidence that
      catches my attention.
    
    Phoenix:
      Something that this court has
      yet to see!
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Wright.
    
    Judge:
      I will say this one more time.
      I do not feel this trial needs
      to continue at all.
    
    Judge:
      ...
      However, I am giving you one
      chance... and only one.
    
    Edgeworth:
      What the judge is saying,
      Wright, is don't try pulling
      one of your usual bluffs here.
    
    Phoenix:
      (If I mess this up, it's
      curtains for all of us!)
    
    Judge:
      You may now present one, and
      only one piece of evidence.

      important evidence that you

    *Present Wine Glass*
    
    Phoenix:
      *TAKE THAT!*
    
    Judge:
      This... is a wine glass, is it
      not?
    
    Phoenix:
      Please look at the photo of
      the crime scene one more
      time!
    
    Phoenix:
      The scene is a mess because
      of the victim's struggle
      against his assailant.
    
    Phoenix:
      The vase was broken, his make-
      up is all over the floor...
    
    Phoenix:
      These were all things that
      were at one point, sitting on
      top of the dresser.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
      Well, yes, I see your point.
    
    Phoenix:
      However!
    
    Phoenix:
      This glass that is sitting on
      top of the dresser is
      mysteriously untouched.
    
    Phoenix:
      The only thing that had not
      fallen over along with every-
      thing else is this wine glass!
    
    Phoenix:
      This piece of evidence is more
      than strange enough to warrant
      further consideration!
    
    Judge:
      ...
    
    Gumshoe:
      ...
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      W-Well?
      What do you all have to
      say...?
    
    Judge:
      Ah, well, yes, it is a little
      peculiar...
    
    Phoenix:
      Y-Yes, isn't it!?
      I thought it was!
    
    Judge:
      You can stop looking at me
      with those puppy dog eyes of
      yours now.
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Edgeworth?
    
    Edgeworth:
      What is it, Your Honor?
    
    Judge:
      Your opinion...
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...You don't need my opinion.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Because there is no special
      meaning to that glass.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...What!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      It's safe to say that the
      glass was set there after
      the crime took place.
    
    Edgeworth:
      By the person who discovered
      the body, Adrian Andrews, for
      example.
    
    Edgeworth:
      She could have easily been so
      shocked that she set the glass
      down without thinking.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm... That does sound very
      plausible.
      Mr. Wright?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Could Ms. Andrews really have
      set that glass down without
      thinking...?)
    
    *** It's possible. *************************

    *   to Ms. Andrews not being the
    *   one who set the cup down.)

    *   here, that would only make the

    Phoenix:
      The defense would like to
      challenge the prosecution's
      theory.
    
    Phoenix:
      We would like to see something
      that proves it was Ms. Andrews
      who set the cup on the table!
    
    Judge:
      Hmm... You've turned the
      situation on its head yet
      again, as usual.
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Edgeworth.
      Do you have any proof to
      back up your claim?
    
    Phoenix:
      (There's no way he has any.
      He's just bluffing!)
    
    Edgeworth:
      Unlike Mr. Wright, I never say
      anything unless I have the
      evidence to support it.
    
    Phoenix:
      Wh-What!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      You're not thinking hard
      enough today, Wright.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Did you think this wine glass
      escaped my notice?
    
    Phoenix:
      Th-Then...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Of course it has been
      thoroughly inspected...
      for fingerprints.
    
    Phoenix:
      Fingerprints...
    
    Edgeworth:
      There were only one set of
      fingerprints left on this wine
      glass.
    
    Judge:
      Only one?
      Well, whose were they!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      They were not the victim's nor
      the defendant's. Rather, they
      were of one Adrian Andrews.
    
    Phoenix:
      WHAT!?
    
    *Wine Glass updated in the
    Court Record.*
    
    Edgeworth:
      That is why I said that the
      person who had discovered
      the body had left it there.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Are we done here, Mr. Wright?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Grrr!
      I can't believe I fell into
      another trap!)
    
    Edgeworth:
      Ms. Andrews was probably
      holding the glass when she
      went to see Mr. Corrida.
    
    Edgeworth:
      But upon seeing his dead body,
      she was stunned, and set the
      glass down on the dresser.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm... What you just said
      makes a lot of sense.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Tsk tsk tsk...
      Now do you see, Wright?
    
    Edgeworth:
      You can't change any part of
      my scenario as it explains
      everything all too well.
    
    Phoenix:
      Grrr!
    
    Edgeworth:
      I've thought long and hard
      this past year about what it
      means to be a "prosecutor".
    
    Edgeworth:
      And from here on out, I will
      show you the answer I have
      come to discover!
    
    Judge:
      W-Wait a second...
      Mr. Edgeworth!
    
    Judge:
      I think the prosecution has
      provided enough evidence for
      me to enter my verdict...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Unfortunately, I can not allow
      you to pass judgment yet.
    
    Edgeworth:
      The prosecution has yet
      another witness we would
      like the court to hear from.

      G.O.T.C.H.A!
    
    Edgeworth:
      Grrrrrrrrr...
    
    Phoenix:
      (I wonder what happened to
      that calm composure he had
      earlier...)
    
    Oldbag:
      Oh, Edgey-boy!
      It's been what, a year since
      we last met, hasn't it?
    
    Oldbag:
      You should be more happy to
      see me!
    
    Edgeworth:
      I saw the report with her
      testimony, but who knew that
      under that helmet...
    
    Edgeworth:
      it was the wicked witch of
      the witness stand!?
    
    Oldbag:
      I tell you, this time I know
      what I'm supposed to do!
    
    Oldbag:
      So today, I'm going to tell
      you anything and everything!
    
    Oldbag:
      Even things that don't have to
      do with that terrible crime.
    
    Judge:
      Ms... Witness...
      "That terrible crime" is all
      this court needs to know.
    
    Ray Gun:
      *rata-tat-tat-tat-tat...*
    
    Judge:
      Oof!
    
    Oldbag:
      Shush! I'm talking to my dear
      Edgey-Wedgey right now!
    
    Oldbag:
      Don't interrupt us, gramps!
    
    Judge:
      Yes, madam.
    
    Edgeworth:
      No no no, please, by all means
      interrupt her!
      Please!
    
    Edgeworth:
      *ahem*
      Anyway, witness, your
      testimony please.
    
    Oldbag:
      It's true what they say that
      youth are hotheaded nowadays.
      Not that I mind at all, Edgey.
    
    Oldbag:
      Now then, what should I start
      with...?
    
    Edgeworth:
      The witness was on security
      detail at the hotel on the
      night of the murder.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Is this correct, Ms. Oldbag?
    
    Oldbag:
      It was a great job being able
      to see my dearie Juan!
    
    Oldbag:
      It was almost too much for
      my little heart to handle!
    
    Judge:
      You mean... You were a fan of
      the victim?
    
    Oldbag:
      Look, everyone is crazy over
      that Engarde, saying he's cute
      in a fresh way, or something.
    
    Oldbag:
      But not me! I wouldn't say
      anything so silly.
    
    Oldbag:
      After all, I have no interest
      in a little child like him.
    
    Oldbag:
      I'm only interested in a real
      man: Juan Corrida!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Um... But those two were the
      same age...)
    
    Oldbag:
      Anyway, as I was saying,
    
    Oldbag:
      I was pacing in front of his
      room that night.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Very well. Please tell the
      court what you witnessed the
      night of the murder.
    
    Oldbag:
      Leave it to me, Edgey-poo!

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- What You Witnessed --
    
    (1)
    Oldbag:
      Anyway, after the ceremony,
      I went to pace around in the
      hallway in front of his room.
    
    (2)
    Oldbag:
      There was something I was
      interested in finding out, you
      know...
    
    (3)
    Oldbag:
      Well, since I was on the job,
      I made sure to keep a good
      eye out the whole time.
    
    (4)
    Oldbag:
      That's when someone showed
      up! It was a man coming out
      of poor Juan's room.
    
    (5)
    Oldbag:
      It was Engarde. Matt Engarde.
      He was trying to sneak his way
      out of Juan's room!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
      So Mr. Engarde came out from
      the victim's room...
    
    Oldbag:
      See! It has to be him!
      He's the murderer!
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...
    
    Judge:
      I see.
    
    Judge:
      Well, Mr. Wright.
      You may begin your cross-
      examination.

    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- What You Witnessed --
    
    (1)
    Oldbag:
      Anyway, after the ceremony,
      I went to pace around in the
      hallway in front of his room.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Ms. Oldbag, what was your
           post on that night?
    
         Oldbag:
           The lobby. I was supposed to
           help set up the stage for that
           trifling show.
    
         Oldbag:
           But I refused to help, I'll
           have you know. It was for that
           Lead-headed Samurai's show.
    
         Oldbag:
           Heh, I even took out a few of
           the nails.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Maybe it was a good thing
           the show didn't go on...)
    
         Oldbag:
           Besides, that manager with
           the glasses seemed to be
           working hard at it without me.
    
         Oldbag:
           So I thought I'd take a break
           and spread my wings a little.
    
         Phoenix:
           And that's when you went to
           hang around the victim's door?
    
    (2)
    Oldbag:
      There was something I was
      interested in finding out, you
      know...
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Something you were
           "interested" in?
           And just what was that?
    
         Oldbag:
           It's not some little thing I
           can just go around telling
           everyone, you know.
    
         Oldbag:
           It's top secret, between me
           and Juan.
    
         Oldbag:
           Ah, and Edgey, of course.
    
         Judge:
           Mr. Edgeworth.
           What is this thing she was
           "interested" in...?
    
         Edgeworth:
           I have no idea.
           I despise gossip, Your Honor.
    
         Phoenix:
           ("Gossip"...?)
    
         Edgeworth:
           If this has something to do
           with the case, then you can
           append it to your testimony.
    
         Mia:
           It looks like we shouldn't
           force it right now.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm... And did the witness
           stay in the vicinity of the
           victim's door the entire time?
    
    (3)
    Oldbag:
      Well, since I was on the job,
      I made sure to keep a good
      eye out the whole time.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Oh? Then would you tell us the
           number of people who went in
           and out of Mr. Corrida's room?
    
         Oldbag:
           I have no idea!
    
         Oldbag:
           I wasn't born so I could count
           things for those who didn't
           pay attention in class!
    
         Oldbag:
           That's why ever since I turned
           20, I quit keeping track of
           how old I really am!
    
         Judge:
           ...Yes, well, that would
           explain why your age was not
           recorded in the report.
    
         Edgeworth:
           In any case...
    
         Edgeworth:
           The witness then saw
           someone, correct?
    
    (4)
    Oldbag:
      That's when someone showed
      up! It was a man coming out
      of poor Juan's room.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Who in the world was that!?
    
         Oldbag:
           I'm not allowed to say!
    
         Oldbag:
           This sort of information has
           to be carefully guarded from
           the masses, sonny.
    
         Oldbag:
           The man that came out of
           Juan's room... It was...
           He was...
    
         Judge:
           Yes...?
           He was...?
    
         Oldbag:
           ...
           Ah! I'm too scared! I can't
           say his name out loud!
    
         Phoenix:
           (Oh, what I wouldn't give to
           have Franziska's whip right
           about now...)
    
         Oldbag:
           Well, I guess I can tell you,
           since he was such a bad boy
           anyway.
    
    (5)
    Oldbag:
      It was Engarde. Matt Engarde.
      He was trying to sneak his way
      out of Juan's room!
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           You saw my client!?
           Are you sure about that!?
    
         Oldbag:
           Yessey!
    
         Phoenix:
           Really?
    
         Oldbag:
           Annoying brat!
           When I say I saw someone,
           I saw that person!
    
         Phoenix:
           (Why do I get a sense of
           déjà vu?)
    
         Phoenix:
           (Maybe to avoid a mess like
           last year, I should delve into
           this a bit further...)

    Oldbag:
      He was wearing his flashy
      racing jacket. Honestly, it's
      all just for show.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Are you sure the defendant
           was wearing a racing jacket?
    
         Oldbag:
           What do you think?
    
         Oldbag:
           It's not like I've seen him in
           anything other than that
           horrible thing.
    
         Oldbag:
           I'm sure he was wearing it!
    
         Phoenix:

    Phoenix:
      That's bad for us. Really bad.
    
    Mia:
      But, that's how the human mind
      is. It also has the tendency
      to jump off-topic.
    
    Mia:
      She's strayed onto a few
      interesting side-topics this
      time too, hasn't she?
    
    Mia:
      But that's what makes her
      a sweet old lady, right?

      Ms. Oldbag...
    
    Oldbag:
      What!?
      Don't say my name for no
      reason!
    
    Phoenix:
      Do you know what this is?
    
    Oldbag:
      Aaaah!
      It's button number 2 on the
      Jammin' Ninja's costume!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Now I KNOW she's an obsessed
      fan... She identified it in a
      single glance!)
    
    Oldbag:
      Give it here! Give it here!
      If you don't give it to me,
      I'll punish you with this!
    
    Ray Gun:
      *rata-tat-tat-tat-tat...*
    
    Phoenix:
      (Wow... She really is a die-
      hard fan to want a button
      covered in blood...)
    
    Phoenix:
      This button was discovered on
      Mr. Engarde's body during a
      full body search.
    
    Oldbag:
      See! See!
    
    Oldbag:
      This button proves beyond a
      shadow of a doubt it was
      that rascal Engarde!
    
    Phoenix:
      It was caught up in the pleats
      of his Nickel Samurai hakama
      pants.
    
    Oldbag:
      See! See!
    
    Oldbag:
      And Engarde is the Nickel
      Samurai!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Witness!
    
    Phoenix:
      Now, it may just be me, and
      I do have an active
      imagination,
    
    Phoenix:
      but just now, didn't you say
      that the defendant...
    
    Phoenix:
      Matt Engarde was wearing his
      "usual racing jacket"!?
    
    Oldbag:
      ...
      ...
      ...
    
    Oldbag:
      Ah...
      I'm so sorry.
    
    Oldbag:
      Sorry that you judge people
      based on what they wear!
    
    Oldbag:
      If I wore the trendiest dress,
      then maybe you'd think I was
      the most gorgeous woman ever!
    
    Oldbag:
      But instead, I have to put up
      with wearing this ridiculous-
      looking outfit. You'd agree
    
    Oldbag:
      this outfit is hideous, right?
      I've got a tape recorder stuck
      on my chest! Lemme tell you,
    
    Oldbag:
      it's HEAVY! So heavy, I wish
      we would have switched to CDs
      ages ago! But I'm keeping that
    
    Oldbag:
      dream alive for all those kids
      out there, I work hard with a
      smile on my face, don't you
    
    Oldbag:
      understand!? Now, take a look
      in the mirror. Your clothes
      are about as interesting as a
    
    Oldbag:
      documentary on curling! You
      should take a tip or ten from
      Edgey-poo. Now HE'S got style!

    Judge:
      was not Mr. Engarde, the
      man...
    
    Judge:
      but Mr. Engarde, the Nickel
      Samurai!?
    
    Oldbag:
      But when you think about
      it...
    
    Oldbag:
      They're really one and the
      same anyway...
    
    Phoenix:
      Ms. Oldbag!
      This is a very important
      point we're talking about!
    
    Oldbag:
      Edgey-poo!
      Do you think so too?
    
    Edgeworth:
      Well, it might be something
      worth thinking about.
    
    Phoenix:
      Just say, "It's important" and
      agree with me for a change!

      Witness! Think carefully and
      try to remember as much as
      you can before you testify!

      Engarde... Engarde...
      Yes, now I remember!
    
    (2)
    Oldbag:
      The Nickel Samurai, that's
      right, it was the Nickel
      Samurai that I saw!
    
    (3)
    Oldbag:
      Yes, it would have been
      convenient for him to wear
      his costume during the murder.
    
    (4)
    Oldbag:
      He had to go to that post-
      ceremony stage show right
      after the crime, you know.
    
    (5)
    Oldbag:
      So he must've worn that
      Nickel Samurai costume when
      he was stabbing poor Juan.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      I... I knew it...
    
    Phoenix:
      I knew you'd say he was
      inside that costume!
    
    Oldbag:
      What?
    
    Oldbag:
      Did you think there could've
      been someone else inside that
      costume?
    
    Oldbag:
      Don't be a bad little boy,
      thinking such rude things.
    
    Phoenix:
      But... But the possibility
      does exist!
    
    Oldbag:
      Ah, young'uns today.
      I told you, there is no way it
      was anyone else.
    
    Judge:
      H-How do you know that?
    
    Oldbag:
      Because... I said so.
      And what I say is the truth.

      (At least she's just as
      delightful a witness as
      she was a year ago...)

      Yes, now I remember!
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Would you please get on
           with your testimony!
    
         Oldbag:
           Hmph! Watch your language,
           young man! What sort of tone
           is that to take with an elder!
    
         Oldbag:
           My youthfulness isn't what it
           used to be, so you should
           forgive me for everything!
    
         Oldbag:
           If you keep on barking at me
           like that, I'll start singing
           at the top of my lungs!
    
         Phoenix:
           Uh, what?
    
         Oldbag:
           "A striking figure by the sea,
           standing all alone is he.
           He's the Nickel Samurai!"
    
         Phoenix:
           (...She's actually singing...
           Someone help my poor ears.)
    
         Judge:
           Mr. Edgeworth.
           Can you please do something
           about this racket!?
    
         Edgeworth:
           Witness. I'll give you a piece
           of gum later if you'll be good
           and stick to just the facts.
    
         Oldbag:
           OKAAAAAAAY!
           ...
           You promise, right!?
    
         Edgeworth:
           Wright. I'll be sending the
           bill for the chewing gum to
           your office at a later date.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Remind me to send you a
           thank you note later too,
           Edgeworth, old chum...)
    
    (2)
    Oldbag:
      The Nickel Samurai, that's
      right, it was the Nickel
      Samurai that I saw!
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Be a little more careful with
           your testimony, please!
    
         Phoenix:
           Not too long ago, you said he
           was wearing his "racing
           jacket", and now he's not!?
    
         Oldbag:
           "Not too long ago"...?
    
         Oldbag:
           Then let me ask you this!
           When you were itty-bitty,
           what was your grand dream?
    
         Phoenix:
           ...Huh?
    
         Oldbag:
           What did you want to be when
           you grew up, whippersnapper!?
    
         Phoenix:
           My dream, huh...?
    
         Phoenix:
           Well, I... uh, wanted to be
           Judge Wackner, hero of the
           Public's Court. So what!?
    
         Oldbag:
           See!
    
         Oldbag:
           And look at where you are now!
           You're not Judge Wackner, are
           you!? Are you!?
    
         Phoenix:
           Well...
    
         Oldbag:
           "What I said earlier"...
    
         Oldbag:
           Who puts any weight into
           things like that!?
    
         Oldbag:
           The "now" is everything!
           I can't be held responsible
           for the "past"!
    
         Phoenix:
           (Since when did court become
           theatrics over testimonies?)
    
         Oldbag:
           All that matters is that man
           was inside that costume.
           Isn't that enough!?
    
    (3)
    Oldbag:
      Yes, it would have been
      convenient for him to wear
      his costume during the murder.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           And why would that be?
    
         Oldbag:
           That way, no one could see
           his face, of course!
    
         Phoenix:
           But there's still no advantage
           for him that I can see.
    
         Phoenix:
           In fact, you would think the
           costume would make him stand
           out all the more!
    
         Oldbag:
           ...
    
         Oldbag:
           You are such a annoying child,
           you know that? You disagree
           with everything I say...
    
         Phoenix:
           (Isn't that what YOU'RE always
           doing to me!?)
    
         Oldbag:
           I got it! Maybe it was more
           troublesome for him to change
           in and out of his costume!
    
    (4)
    Oldbag:
      He had to go to that post-
      ceremony stage show right
      after the crime, you know.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Was there anyone else
           scheduled to appear at the
           post-ceremony show?
    
         Oldbag:
           Well, all the contestants were
           supposed to go onstage in a
           friendly gesture thing.
    
         Phoenix:
           And that included the Jammin'
           Ninja...?
    
         Oldbag:
           Of course it included him!
    
         Oldbag:
           That's why when Engarde
           came out of dear Juan's room,
    
         Oldbag:
           I didn't give it a second
           thought.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm... I see.
    
         Oldbag:
           Well, anyway.
    
    (5)
    Oldbag:
      So he must've worn that
      Nickel Samurai costume when
      he was stabbing poor Juan.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           So let me ask you one last
           time.
    
         Phoenix:
           The person you saw, it really
           was the Nickel Samurai?
    
         Oldbag:
           As showy as ever.
    
         Oldbag:
           Haven't I been saying that
           from the very beginning!?
    
         Phoenix:
           (Can I throw in the towel
           yet?)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      Hmm...
    
    Mia:
      You don't need to think too
      hard on this one.
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh?
    
    Mia:
      There's a contradiction in her
      testimony and it's sitting in
      plain sight.
    
    Mia:
      The question is what that
      contradiction means for us...
    
    Phoenix:
      (Well, I have to figure out
      what you're talking about
      first, but OK...)

    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      Please take a look at this.
    
    Oldbag:
      Yeah, so, it's a knife.
      Big deal.
    
    Oldbag:
      If you're trying to scare me
      with that, I'll have you know
      it won't work!
    
    Phoenix:
      No no, that's not my intention
      at all...
    
    Judge:
      That's the knife that was used
      in the murder, correct?
    
    Phoenix:
      Your Honor. Do you know why
      this piece of evidence is
      important to this case?
    
    Judge:
      You don't even have to ask.
      It's because the defendant's
      fingerprints are on it.
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Is that what you're driving
      at...?
    
    Phoenix:
      That is exactly what I am
      driving at.
    
    Judge:
      What are we driving at?
      And whose car are we driving?
    
    Phoenix:
      If Mr. Engarde was really in
      the Nickel Samurai costume at
      the time of the murder,
    
    Phoenix:
      then it's impossible for his
      fingerprints to have been left
      on this knife!
    
    Phoenix:
      Actually, he would have wiped
      all previous fingerprints on
      this knife right off!
    
    Judge:
      Oh, that's right! The Nickel
      Samurai wears gloves,
      doesn't he?
    
    Edgeworth:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Edgeworth:
      He probably took his gloves
      off before he began the
      stabbing!
    
    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      And why would he do something
      like that? To leave his prints
      on the murder weapon?
    
    Phoenix:
      There is no way he would do
      something like that!
    
    Edgeworth:
      However, there is one
      possibility!
    
    Phoenix:
      Then let's hear your
      "possibility"!
    
    Edgeworth:
      It's very simple.
    
    Edgeworth:
      The defendant went to the
      victim's room while in costume
      as the Nickel Samurai.
    
    Edgeworth:
      At that time, the defendant
      held no intent to murder.
    
    Edgeworth:
      He was probably just going to
      relax and talk with the victim
      about the stage show.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Which is why he took his
      gloves off!
    
    Judge:
      Hmm...
      But the murder still did take
      place...
    
    Edgeworth:
      It's well known that the
      defendant and the victim had
      bad blood between them.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm, yes... I have heard of
      that...
    
    Judge:
      Well, Mr. Wright? What do you
      have to say about
      Mr. Edgeworth's theory...?
    
    Phoenix:
      (So let me get this straight.
      Edgeworth's theory goes like
      this:)
    
    Phoenix:
      (When the defendant went to
      the victim's room, he had no
      intentions of killing him.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Now, up to this point, are
      there any problems with his
      theory...?)

    *   closer to a guilty verdict.
    *

      This theory contradicts
      something in an earlier
      testimony!
    
    Edgeworth:
      Wh-What are you babbling
      about...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Now, for argument sake, let's
      suppose Mr. Engarde was the
      killer. If that's the case,
    
    Phoenix:
      I think it's impossible for

    *Present Knife*
    
    Phoenix:
      *TAKE THAT!*
    
    Phoenix:
      This knife.
      This was used by Mr. Engarde
      at dinner.
    
    Judge:
      Y-Yes, we did establish that.
    
    Phoenix:
      Which means that if my client
      was, in fact, the killer...
    
    Phoenix:
      Then he brought this knife
      with him when he went to visit
      Mr. Corrida.
    
    Edgeworth:
      I suppose...
    
    Phoenix:
      However, you just said it
      yourself.
    
    Phoenix:
      "At that time, the defendant
      held no intent to murder."
    
    Phoenix:
      If that were true, then why
      would he bring a knife!?
      He wouldn't, would he!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      Hmm...
    
    Phoenix:
      Which means, Mr. Edgeworth,
    
    Phoenix:
      your theory was flawed from
      supposition one!
    
    Phoenix:
      And one more thing!
    
    Phoenix:
      If the murderer was wearing
      the costume at the time of
      the murder...
    
    Phoenix:
      Then there should be glove
      marks left on the knife!
    
    Phoenix:
      Which means the defendant's
      fingerprints shouldn't be all
      over it like bees on a hive!
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      And that brings me to my final
      point...
    
    Phoenix:
      This knife was planted by the
      real killer to hide their
      identity and mislead us!
    
    Judge:
      O-Order!
      Order, I say!
      Order in the court!!
    
    Judge:
      Was this knife really planted
      by the killer!?
    
    Judge:
      Why would the murderer
      do such a thing!?
    
    xxx To hide the murder method. xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    x
    x Phoenix:
    x   It's to hide the way in which
    x   the murder was carried out,
    x   of course!
    x
    x Edgeworth:
    x   M-More of your nonsense!?
    x
    x Phoenix:
    x   Take another good look at
    x   the autopsy report!
    x
    x Phoenix:
    x   The victim actually died from
    x   strangulation!
    x
    x Phoenix:
    x   The killer tried to hide this
    x   by stabbing a knife into the
    x   victim's chest!
    x
    x Judge:
    x   But doesn't the autopsy
    x   admit that the cause of
    x   death was strangulation?
    x
    x Phoenix:
    x   Well, yes, the real cause of
    x   death was easily discovered...
    x
    x Edgeworth:
    x   Then I'd say the knife did a
    x   terrible job of "concealing"
    x   this fact!

    x   ...
    x
    x Phoenix:

    Edgeworth:
      We have looked into this

      baseless gossip.

           get me to say "touché"!
    
    (2)
    Oldbag:
      He thought he could ruin
      poor Juan by causing a huge
      scandal!
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           A scandal...? What do you
           mean by that?
    
         Oldbag:
           You're a dimwitted one, aren't
           you? I can't believe you don't
           know what a "scandal" is!
    
         Oldbag:
           Honestly, what are they
           teaching kids in middle
           school these days...?
    
         Phoenix:
           Ah, no no! I wasn't asking
           what the word "scandal" means!
           Even I know that much!
    
         Oldbag:
           Well! That Engarde thought he
           could own a monopoly on
           popularity!
    
    (3)
    Oldbag:
      So to do that, he sent his own
      manager to get in close with
      Juan!
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           You don't have any proof that
           Mr. Engarde did any such
           thing!
    
         Oldbag:
           You must be suffering from
           shock; the shock of hearing
           the truth.
    
         Oldbag:
           And now, since you're in so
           much shock, you can't do
           anything right!
    
         Phoenix:
           (You're right, I can't do any-
           thing, but boy do I wish I
           could do something about you.)
    
         Oldbag:
           Alright then, sonny, show me
           what you've got!
    
         Oldbag:
           Can you show me proof that
           Engarde didn't bear any ill-
           will towards Juan!?

      trash can! That's all!

      You're lying, dammit!
      And I can prove it!!

      I don't believe that the note

      that night!

    *Present Lotta's Camera*
    
    Phoenix:
      *TAKE THAT!*
    
    Phoenix:
      Ms. Oldbag!
    
    Phoenix:
      That note was with a camera,
      inside its case, wasn't it?
    
    Judge:
      A camera...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yesterday, Lotta Hart was
      raising a huge stink over her
      camera.
    
    Phoenix:
      She kept saying something
      like, "My sweetie $1,600
      camera disappeared on me!"
    
    Judge:
      Why...
      Why...
      Witness!!
    
    Oldbag:
      What is it, gramps?
    
    Phoenix:
      If you have the note, then it
      is only logical that you have
      the camera too!
    
    Oldbag:
      Grr...
      Looks like you found me out
      again, sonny...
    
    Oldbag:
      Is this the camera you're
      looking for?
    
    Phoenix:
      Ah, that's...!
    
    Oldbag:
      What!?
      Even though I look like this,
      I'm still a person, you know!
    
    Oldbag:
      I still eat meals like you, I
      fall in love... and "borrow"
      things from people!
    
    Judge:
      Um... I think your definition
      of "borrow" is a little off...
    
    Oldbag:
      I saw that woman's business
      card and that's when I noticed
      it said,
    
    Oldbag:
      "Slimebag Celebrity
      Photographer Extraordinaire"!
    
    Oldbag:
      Well, when I saw that, I had
      to know what sort of pictures
      she had taken!
    
    Oldbag:
      I'm a professional security
      guard! It's my business to
      know these things!
    
    Judge:
      Bailiff!
    
    Judge:
      Check this camera's photos.
      Hurry!
    
    Judge:
      We must examine them at once!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Well, Mr. Edgeworth...
      What do we have?
    
    Edgeworth:
      There is only one photo that
      seems to be relevant to this
      case.
    
    Judge:
      Please present it to the
      court!
    
    Judge:
      Th-This is...
      This is the Nickel Samurai!
    
    Oldbag:
      See, I told you!
      That's the guy I saw!
    
    Judge:
      This proves that the witness
      was not lying earlier about
      this matter.
    
    *Lotta's Photo added to the
    Court Record.*
    
    Judge:
      Wh-What does all this mean,
      Mr. Edgeworth!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      This photo by itself does not
      prove that the person in it is
      the defendant. However!
    
    Edgeworth:
      In his own confession,
      Mr. Engarde clearly stated
      that...
    
    Edgeworth:
      At the time of the murder, he
      was still in his Nickel
      Samurai costume!
    
    Judge:
      If that is the case, then...
      this Nickel Samurai is...
    
    Edgeworth:
      The defendant.
    
    Judge:
      How did it come to this...?
    
    Judge:
      I think this brings us to the
      end. We have examined every
      piece of evidence thoroughly.
    
    Judge:
      Final comments, Mr. Wright?
      The court will consider them
      before we close.
    
    Judge:
      Do you agree that this photo
      is decisive evidence against
      your client?
    
    Phoenix:
      (If this photo really is
      decisive, then we're done
      for!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (But if I raise an objection
      here and blow it, then I would
      put Maya's life in jeopardy.)
    
    Phoenix:
      (I can't make a mistake here!
      There is only one road out of
      this mess!)
    
    Phoenix:

    * Edgeworth:

    *

    *   I see...

    *   rest on this matter.
    *
    * Judge:
    *   In that case, there is no

      There's... There's something

    Edgeworth:
      I knew this was coming,
      Wright.
    
    Judge:
      Your thoughts, Mr. Edgeworth?
    
    Edgeworth:
      I think we can all agree there
      is nothing strange with this
      photo.
    
    Edgeworth:
      There is no way for the
      defense to debunk this photo,
      even with a bunker buster.
    
    Judge:
      "Debunk with a bunker
      buster"!? Is that what you're
      planning to do, Mr. Wright!?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, anyway, please look at the
      photo one more time!
    
    Judge:
      If you really believe you can
      honestly find something wrong
      with this photo,
    
    Judge:
      then you should only need
      one chance, correct...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Um... Well...
    
    Phoenix:
      (I have to find something
      wrong with this photo! I can't
      let this chance go by!)
    
    Phoenix:
      (Where in the heck did she
      take this picture anyway...?)
    
    Phoenix:
      (It's all out of focus! Why
      can't she take a good shot,
      especially when it counts!?)
    
    Judge:
      Now then, let's hear your
      objection.

      What does that mean...?

      The "Nickel Samurai" in this

    Edgeworth:
      I wonder if you would care to
      elaborate... With actual
      facts, that is.
    
    Phoenix:
      Let's take a look at the
      Nickel Samurai's poster.
    
    Phoenix:
      Please pay particular
      attention to the area around
      the bottom of the hakama.
    
    Judge:
      His... His socks... You can
      see his socks...
    
    Phoenix:
      Exactly!
      However, in this photo...
    
    Phoenix:
      The Nickel Samurai is clearly
      holding his hakama up just
      to walk!
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      There is only one explanation
      for this!
    
    Phoenix:
      The person inside this costume
      is clearly much shorter than
      the defendant!
    
    Phoenix:

      things around for myself this
      time!)
    
    Mia:
      That's curious...
    
    Phoenix:
      Huh?
      What is?
    
    Mia:
      Edgeworth is unusually calm
      today...
    
    Phoenix:
      That's true...
    
    Mia:
      He's just letting the trial
      run itself; as if he's only
      along for the ride.
    
    Phoenix:
      "Along for the ride"...?
      What do you mean by that?
    
    Mia:
      I can only think that perhaps
      he doesn't feel under attack
      at all...
    
    Phoenix:
      (He doesn't feel under
      attack!? Then, he's not taking
      any damage!?)
    
    Judge:
      Mr. Edgeworth!
      Where does this leave us!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...
    
    Judge:
      If the person in this photo is
      not Matt Engarde...
    
    Judge:
      Then everything the
      prosecution has tried to prove
      has become meaningless!
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Hmm... I thought it would
      come to this.
    
    Phoenix:
      WHAT!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      Wright.
      I have something I want to
      ask you.
    
    Edgeworth:
      I think you have proven that
      the person inside this costume
      is not Matt Engarde.
    
    Edgeworth:
      In that case...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Who IS this a photo of...?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Who is the person wearing
      the Nickel Samurai costume?)
    
    Mia:
      Don't stress out over this,
      Phoenix.
      It's very simple.
    
    Mia:
      What you should be focused on
      is Edgeworth's attitude, don't
      you think?
    
    Phoenix:
      (Yeah...
      Why is he so calm...?)
    
    Judge:

      A-Adrian Andrews...?

      If you want to know who that
      Nickel Samurai is, it is none
      other than this woman!
    
    Edgeworth:
      And why would you say it would
      be Ms. Andrews!? What in the
      world points you to her?
    
    Phoenix:
      For starters, she's short.
    
    Phoenix:
      And, she can freely move in
      and out of Mr. Engarde's room.
    
    Phoenix:
      Finally, she had dinner with
      Mr. Engarde that night.
    
    Judge:
      And how does that all add up?
    
    Phoenix:
      It means that it makes it very
      easy for her to get a certain
      item.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...A certain knife with
      Mr. Engarde's fingerprints all
      over it!

      The knife that was used as a
      murder weapon!

      it is you want, Wright?

    Edgeworth:
      I abhor wasting such valuable
      time...
    
    Phoenix:
      E-Edgeworth?
    
    Edgeworth:
      Your Honor.
      I request that you please
      continue with today's trial.
    
    Judge:
      B-But...
    
    Judge:
      We cannot continue due to
      this unexpected development!
    
    Edgeworth:
      Tsk, tsk.
      "Unexpected" development?
    
    Edgeworth:
      I think you underestimate
      me, Your Honor.
    
    Judge:
      And what do you mean by
      that...?
    
    Edgeworth:
      That Mr. Phoenix Wright would
      slave his way to subpoenaing
      Ms. Adrian Andrews is all
    
    Edgeworth:
      happening according to plan...
      Even if Wright was a bit slow
      to catch on...
    
    Phoenix:
      Wh-Wh-Wh...
    
    Phoenix:
      WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT!?
    
    Judge:
      What is the meaning of your
      statement, Mr. Edgeworth!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      Ms. Adrian Andrews is
      currently waiting in the
      prosecution lobby...
    
    Edgeworth:
      She is the next witness.
    
    Phoenix:
      ...!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Everything... Everything was
      planned out in advance by
      that man...?)
    
    Mia:
      Somehow, I knew there was
      no way Edgeworth would
      overlook Ms. Andrews...
    
    Mia:
      Looks like this battle is far
      from over.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Exactly.
    
    Judge:
      Very well.
    
    Judge:
      We will call the next witness.
    
    Judge:
      However...
    
    Judge:
      Before we proceed, we shall
      take a 10 minute recess.
    
    Judge:
      Please prepare your witness
      in that time, Mr. Edgeworth.
    
    Edgeworth:
      ...
    
    Judge:
      The court will now take a 10
      minute recess.
    
    
                                                 To be continued.

    March 22, 2:14 PM
    District Court
    Defendant Lobby No. 3
    
    Engarde:
      Dude! I can't believe that
      Adrian... No way! Not cool and
      collected Adrian Andrews!
    
    Phoenix:
      She is your manager. It would
      have been very easy for her
      to pull this off.
    
    Phoenix:
      The only person who had easy
      access to the knife you used
      at dinner was, well... Her.
    
    Engarde:
      So after the ceremony,
      during the break, huh...?
    
    Engarde:
      I was sleeping like a log
      the entire time...
    
    Phoenix:
      See, she could have also
      easily planted that blood-
      covered button in your hakama.
    
    Engarde:
      Hmm... Because she was the one
      that came to wake me up?
    
    Engarde:
      ...
    
    Engarde:
      Then... Dude, you're saying
      it really was her...?
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes. She is the real killer...
      She was the one who murdered
      Juan Corrida.
    
    Engarde:
      But... Why!?
      I thought she was buds with
      Juan...!
    
    Phoenix:
      She has her own agenda.
    
    Engarde:
      H-Her own agenda!?
      Wh-What are you talking about?
    
    Phoenix:
      I'm sure you'll see by the
      time this trial's over.
    
    Phoenix:
      It'll be alright.
      I'll get you acquitted by the
      end of today.
    
    Engarde:
      Get me a verdict that's
      refreshing like a spring
      breeze, OK Mr. Lawyer dude?
    
    Mia:
      Phoenix...
    
    Mia:
      You think her motive is
      related to Celeste Inpax's
      missing suicide note, right?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Yes.
    
    Phoenix:
      Ms. Andrews depended on
      Ms. Inpax for her strength
      and will to live.
    
    Phoenix:
      But then Ms. Inpax suddenly
      killer herself.
    
    Phoenix:
      It sounds like she left a
      suicide note, and the person
      thought to have hidden it...
    
    Mia:
      ...Is Juan Corrida, the
      victim of this murder.
    
    Phoenix:
      And that's why I think that
      Ms. Andrews got close to
      Mr. Corrida...
    
    Phoenix:
      All to get the suicide note
      back!
    
    Mia:
      That sounds plausible...
    
    Mia:
      But one thing bothers me.
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, what...?
    
    Mia:
      Who was it that first told
      us about their relationship?
    
    Mia:
      Better stated, Mr. Andrews'
      co-dependency with regards
      to Ms. Inpax...?
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      It was Edgeworth...
    
    Mia:
      It looks like he's still the
      one in command of this ship.
    
    Mia:
      Don't let your guard down yet.

    March 22, 2:25 PM
    District Court
    Courtroom No. 3
    
    Judge:
      Court will now reconvene.
      Now then, Mr. Edgeworth,
      if you please.
    
    Edgeworth:
      The prosecution calls the
      witness subpoenaed by this
      court.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Ms. Adrian Andrews, the person
      who discovered the crime in
      Mr. Juan Corrida's room!
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Edgeworth:
      What is your occupation?
    
    Andrews:
      I am the manager of the
      defendant in this case,
      Mr. Matt Engarde.
    
    Judge:
      I see.
      Now then...
    
    Andrews:
      Before we begin, Your Honor,
      I have one request.
    
    Judge:
      Uh, yes, sure.
      What is it?
    
    Andrews:
      I'm sure everyone in this room
      is wondering the same thing,
    
    Andrews:
      and would love to find out
      more about my relationship
      with the victim.
    
    Andrews:
      After all, it was the topic of
      a certain weekly "magazine"
      recently...
    
    Judge:
      Ah, no, I have no idea what
      you mean. I've never even
      heard of "Gossip Land"...
    
    Phoenix:
      (If the judge was ever a
      prosecution witness, he'd
      do all my work for me...)
    
    Edgeworth:
      Anyway, I was wondering if you
      could please tell us about
      your relation to the victim.
    
    Andrews:
      Yes, I was seeing Mr. Corrida.
    
    Andrews:
      I was also aware of the
      rivalry that existed between
      Matt and Juan...
    
    Andrews:
      But this was a private matter
      between Juan and myself.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm, so it was a "fry 'n bait"
      matter... or was that "bait 'n
      fry"? Reminds me of fishing...
    
    Andrews:
      But I...
      But I didn't kill him.
    
    Edgeworth:
      No one has accused you of
      that.
    
    Andrews:
      I've got a feeling someone
      will soon...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...!
    
    Judge:
      I think we all understand your
      relationship with the victim
      now, Ms. Andrews.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Very well then. Witness,
      please testify to the court
    
    Edgeworth:
      about what happened when
      you discovered the murder
      that had taken place.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- When I Found the Body --
    
    (1)
    Andrews:
      It was time for the show to
      start, so I went to get Matt
      from his room.
    
    (2)
    Andrews:
      After that, I went to Juan's
      room.
    
    (3)
    Andrews:
      And there was his dead body.
      I... I was in shock...
    
    (4)
    Andrews:
      What I saw was, naturally, the
      exact same scene as in the
      crime scene photo.
    
    (5)
    Andrews:
      I felt as though I was about
      to faint, so I poured myself a
      glass of juice.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      You poured yourself a
      glass of juice...?
    
    Andrews:
      Yes. Sadly, I didn't remember
      not to touch things at the
      scene of a crime...
    
    Andrews:
      And I disturbed the crime
      scene by moving this one
      thing...
    
    Edgeworth:
      And that is when the
      fingerprints on the wine glass
      were made, Your Honor.
    
    Judge:
      I see.
    
    Judge:
      Well, Mr. Wright, you may
      cross-examine the witness.
    
    Mia:
      Phoenix.
    
    Mia:
      She is one cool and collected
      customer, and she has the
      brains to match.
    
    Phoenix:
      Yes... I know.
    
    Mia:
      In order to catch a person
      like her, you have to avoid
      head-on confrontations.
    
    Mia:
      You should disrupt her pace.
    
    Phoenix:
      Disrupt her pace...?
    
    Mia:
      She's the type of woman who
      is easily thrown off by things
      inconsistent with her thinking
    
    Mia:
      so you have to attack when
      she least expects it.
    
    Mia:
      The instant you let up on your
      offense is the instant this
      trial is over. Understand?
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    CROSS EXAMINATION
    -- When I Found the Body --
    
    (1)
    Andrews:
      It was time for the show to
      start, so I went to get Matt
      from his room.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           And what was Mr. Engarde doing
           at the time...?
    
         Andrews:
           He was taking a nap.
    
         Andrews:
           He was worn out from his mini
           performance as the Nickel
           Samurai during the ceremony...
    
         Phoenix:
           (Hmm, Mr. Engarde did say he
           was taking a nap...)
    
         Phoenix:
           Then I guess you could say
           it could not have been taken
           out of his room, yes?
    
         Andrews:
           Excuse me?
           "It"...?
           What are you...?
    
         Edgeworth:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         Edgeworth:
           Wright. I thought years of
           school would have taught you
           how to construct a sentence.
    
         Edgeworth:
           If you can't make a sensible
           sentence with a subject, then
           I'll make one for you. Watch.
    
         Edgeworth:
           Did you, Ms. Andrews, remove
           Mr. Engarde's knife from his
           room?
    
         Andrews:
           ...No.
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
    
         Edgeworth:
           Subject, verb, object Wright.
           Did you skip basic grammar?
           The witness may continue.
    
    (2)
    Andrews:
      After that, I went to Juan's
      room.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           And why did you do that...?
    
         Andrews:
           As a friendly gesture, Juan
           was to make an appearance
           with the other Heroes.
    
         Phoenix:
           (So the show was supposed to
           be a "show" of friendship,
           huh?)
    
         *** Press further **************************

         * Phoenix:
         *   Is that the only reason?
         *

         *   I beg your pardon?
         *   What are you implying...?
         *
         * Phoenix:

         *

         *   personal matter to discuss
         *   with the victim...?
         *
         * Andrews:
         *   ...
         *
         * Andrews:
         *   Sorry, but I didn't have any
         *   such intentions in mind at
         *   that time.
         *
         * Phoenix:
         *   (I can't get her to talk
         *   without a strong piece
         *   of evidence, I guess...)
         *
         * Edgeworth:
         *   May we continue now...?
         *   Witness, what did you see when
         *   you got to his room?

    (3)
    Andrews:
      And there was his dead body.
      I... I was in shock...
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           You were "in shock"...?
    
         Andrews:
           What? Was I not supposed to
           be?
    
         Phoenix:
           (Ms. Andrews is a very
           calculating person...)
    
         Phoenix:
           (And despite how "close" they
           were, I doubt she had romantic
           feelings for Mr. Corrida...)
    
         Edgeworth:
           Anyone randomly stumbling upon
           a dead body would be in shock.
    
         Edgeworth:
           And you can't seriously expect
           that a young beauty like her
           would not be shocked.
    
         Phoenix:
           (Somehow, I don't think beauty
           has anything to do with being
           shocked or not...)
    
         Judge:
           Hmm... I see...
    
    (4)
    Andrews:
      What I saw was, naturally, the
      exact same scene as in the
      crime scene photo.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           This is the photo you're
           referring to, correct?
    
         Andrews:
           Yes, the one with the knife
           lodged in his chest...
    
         Phoenix:
           And the guitar case was like
           this too?
    
         Andrews:
           Yes, it was open and empty, of
           course.
    
         Edgeworth:
           And then, what did you do
           next, witness?
    
    (5)
    Andrews:
      I felt as though I was about
      to faint, so I poured myself a
      glass of juice.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Juice...?
    
         Andrews:
           Yes, there was a bottle of
           tomato juice on the table, so
           I helped myself.
    
         Phoenix:
           But you didn't drink any of
           it, did you?
    
         Andrews:
           Huh?
    
         Phoenix:
           There were no lip marks left
           on this wine glass to suggest
           that anyone drank from it.
    
         Andrews:
           I... I wasn't feeling terribly
           great, so I set the glass
           down. Without drinking it...
    
    (5b)
    Andrews:
      I was the one who knocked the
      flower vase over, where it
      fell onto the guitar case.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           What kind of flower vase was
           it?
    
         Andrews:
           It was a glass vase... and it
           was fairly big and heavy.
    
         Andrews:
           I thought I would try to take
           Juan's pulse...
    
         Andrews:
           So I set the glass I was
           holding down on the dresser.
    
         Andrews:
           And that's when my elbow
           accidentally hit the vase...
    
         Phoenix:
           (That's odd. I thought she
           was always in total control
           of herself...?)
    
         Mia:
           That's what she would like
           people to think.
    
         Mia:
           Always be mindful of the gap
           between the perception and
           reality.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix:
      (It doesn't sound like there's
      any glaring contradictions in
      her testimony just now...)
    
    Mia:
      I warned you earlier that she
      would not crack so easily.
    
    Mia:
      The only way to make her
      is to...
    
    Phoenix:
      ...Keep on the offensive and
      not let up.
    
    Mia:
      The only way you're going to
      catch her is with some very
      strong, decisive evidence...
    
    Phoenix:
      (I have to find something!
      I just have to!
      ...For Maya's sake...)

    *After pressing at (3) and (5)*
    
    Phoenix:
      Ms. Andrews, I would like to
      confirm with you one more
      time.
    
    Phoenix:
      When you discovered the dead
      body of Juan Corrida, you were
      in great shock.
    
    Phoenix:
      And that's when you poured
      yourself the glass of juice,
      correct?
    
    Andrews:
      And what of it...?
    
    Andrews:
      My mind really was a complete
      blank at the time.
    
    Phoenix:
      Your mind was a complete
      blank?
    
    Phoenix:
      I didn't think that was
      possible for you.
    
    Andrews:
      Aren't you rude today?
    
    Andrews:
      I was so dazed that I made
      one careless mistake...
      That one thing...
    
    Phoenix:
      What "one thing"?
    
    Andrews:
      Um, never mind.
      It's no big deal.
    
    Phoenix:
      (What was she starting to say
      just now...?)

    Phoenix:
      Ms. Andrews!
    
    Phoenix:
      I'm convinced that as you
      said, you made a "mistake" at
      the scene of the crime.
    
    Andrews:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      What I really want to know is
      what this "mistake" was.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Hmm, actually... So would I...
    
    Andrews:
      I... I'm sorry...
      It's just...
      It's kind of... embarrassing...
    
    Andrews:
      When I... When I set the glass
      down on the dresser...
    
    Andrews:
      I accidentally... knocked the
      flower vase over...
    
    Judge:
      F-Flower vase...? Are you
      talking about the one on the
      floor in the crime photo...?
    
    Judge:
      This mess of glass shards!?
    
    Andrews:
      It was originally on top of
      the dresser...
    
    Andrews:
      but when I bumped into it with
      my elbow, it fell... onto the
      guitar case.
    
    Edgeworth:
      Wh-Why did you withhold such
      an important piece of
      information!?
    
    Andrews:
      I'm sorry...
      I thought that since the crime
      scene was already in disarray,
    
    Andrews:
      that people would simply
      assume the vase was just
      another part of the mess.
    
    Judge:
      It looks like yet another fact
      has come to light here.
    
    Judge:
      Please add this and anything
      else you have to reveal to
      your testimony.
    
    Andrews:
      I'm sorry... But...
    
    Andrews:
      I have nothing more to add...
      I didn't touch anything
      else.

    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      You testified that you knocked
      the flower vase over.
      Is this correct?
    
    Andrews:
      Yes.
    
    Phoenix:
      And are you sure it fell onto
      the guitar case?
    
    Andrews:
      I-Is there some problem
      with what I said...?
    
    Phoenix:
      It's not "some" problem,
      it's a "major" problem.
    
    Phoenix:
      It's true that the top of the
      guitar case was wet with
      water.
    
    Phoenix:
      However, that's exactly what
      is so strange!
    
    Phoenix:
      Ms. Andrews!
    
    Phoenix:
      You testified that the vase
      fell onto the guitar case!
    
    Phoenix:
      However!
    
    Phoenix:
      If that was true, the case
      should have gotten wet on the
      inside, not the outside!
    
    Judge:
      Th-That's very true!
    
    Phoenix:
      Furthermore, there is one
      other strange thing about this
      guitar case.
    
    Judge:
      And wh-what is that?
    
    Phoenix:
      Let's take another look at the
      crime scene photo.
    
    Phoenix:
      The remains of the vase are
      scattered on the floor.
    
    Judge:
      And what is wrong with that?
    
    Phoenix:
      If the guitar case was open
      when the vase fell...
    
    Phoenix:
      The glass shards should be
      INSIDE, not outside the case!
    
    Andrews:
      Ah!
    
    Edgeworth:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Edgeworth:
      What is your point, Wright!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      That the case was closed at
      the time the vase was knocked
      over?
    
    Edgeworth:
      Is that all!?
    
    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      No.
      Think back to what Ms. Andrews
      testified to!
    
    Phoenix:
      She said that other than the
      vase, she didn't touch
      anything else!
    
    Edgeworth:
      Nngh...
    
    Judge:
      Yes, that's right... She did
      implicitly say she didn't
      touch the guitar case!
    
    Edgeworth:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Edgeworth:
      But... But this whole matter
      with the guitar case is a dead
      end!
    
    Edgeworth:
      The bright red guitar was
      found at the studio! It has no
      bearing on this case at all!
    
    Phoenix:
      ...
    
    Phoenix:
      That may very well be,
      however...
    
    Phoenix:
      (An empty guitar case does
      seem to have no relation to
      this case...)
    
    Judge:
      Hmm... It seems that there
      is no deeper meaning to the
      guitar case.
    
    Judge:
      Well, Mr. Wright? Do you think
      we need to hear more details
      about the guitar case?

      Heh! I can't believe ANYONE

      Alright.

    Judge:

      case.

      Yes, Your Honor.

    WITNESS TESTIMONY
    -- The Guitar Case --
    
    (1)
    Andrews:
      I don't remember too clearly
      because I was a bit dazed.
    
    (2)
    Andrews:
      I suppose I must have opened
      the guitar case... after I
      knocked the vase over.
    
    (3)
    Andrews:
      It's not a big deal though,
      right? The case was empty
      after all.
    
    (4)
    Andrews:
      As for why I opened the
      case...
      Even I don't know.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Judge:
      Hmm... It looks like this
      really wasn't a very important
      point.
    
    Edgeworth:
      This wastefulness is such a
      familiar feeling by now that
      it's almost... comforting.
    
    Phoenix:
      Um, anyway, I'll just go
      ahead and start the cross-
      examination...
    
    Edgeworth:
      Hmph. Using "anyway" to change
      the topic; a convenient escape
      for a weak man.

           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           During your testimony just
           now, did you remember those
           events clearly in your mind?
    
         Andrews:
           ...
    
         Andrews:
           Well, you see...
    
         Phoenix:
           Are you sure you are the one
           who opened the guitar case?

         Phoenix:
           ...
    
         Mia:
           She's...
    
         Mia:
           She's waiting for someone to
           tell her if she should answer
           or not...
    
         Phoenix:
           (Her "co-dependency" is coming
           through, huh...?)
    
         Judge:
           Well, Ms. Andrews...?
    
         Andrews:
           Y...Yes, it was me...
    
    (2)
    Andrews:
      I suppose I must have opened
      the guitar case... after I
      knocked the vase over.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           So, you opened the
           guitar case then?
    
         Andrews:
           Y-Yes... Well, maybe...
    
         Phoenix:
           ...
    
         Phoenix:
           Why did you open the guitar
           case?
    
         Andrews:
           Huh?
    
         Phoenix:
           Mr. Corrida's dead body was
           right there in front of you,
           wasn't it?
    
         Phoenix:
           I would think that the first
           thing you would do is call for
           help, not open a guitar case.
    
         Edgeworth:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         Edgeworth:
           As the witness has said
           multiple times, when she
           found the dead body,
    
         Edgeworth:
           she was "dazed".
    
         Judge:
           Hmm...
    
         Andrews:
           Maybe I...
    
         Andrews:
           Maybe I was curious to know
           if the bright red guitar was
           alright or not.
    
         Andrews:
           I thought, "Maybe the criminal
           took it."
    
         Phoenix:
           (Why would she care about
           the bright red guitar...?)
    
         Andrews:
           But, getting back on topic...
    
    (3)
    Andrews:
      It's not a big deal though,
      right? The case was empty
      after all.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Was it really empty?
    
         Andrews:
           ...?
    
         Phoenix:
           I was just wondering if maybe
           when you opened the case,
    
         Phoenix:
           the guitar was still inside.
    
         Edgeworth:
           *OBJECTION!*
    
         Edgeworth:
           How long have you been a
           lawyer, Mr. Wright!? Have a
           little professionalism.
    
         Edgeworth:
           The bright red guitar was
           found at the studio.
    
         Edgeworth:
           These trials would be
           over in half the time if you
           would just pay attention.
    
         Judge:
           Yes, pay more attention,
           Mr. Wright!
    
         Phoenix:
           Sorry...
    
    (4)
    Andrews:
      As for why I opened the
      case...
      Even I don't know.
    
         Phoenix:
           *HOLD IT!*
    
         Phoenix:
           Was that because you were
           "shocked and dazed" at
           discovering the victim's body?
    
         Andrews:
           Yes... That's probably it.
    
         Phoenix:
           ...
    
         Andrews:
           ...
    
         Phoenix:
           (I'm not going to get anywhere
           if I continue pressing her
           like this...)
    
         Phoenix:
           (The only way to make her talk
           is with evidence... I guess I
           should give it a try...)
    
    --------------------------------------------
    
    Mia:
      Come on, Phoenix. We can't
      afford to let up on her now.
    
    Phoenix:
      I wasn't planning on letting
      up, but...
    
    Mia:
      She's at her weakest now, so
      this is our chance!
    
    Phoenix:
      (Yeah, if we had a weapon to
      hit her with...)
    
    Mia:
      I'm sure a weapon is hiding
      somewhere in the Court
      Record, waiting to be found.

      Why would you say that!?
    
    Phoenix:
      It's elementary, my dear.

      on this guitar case are those

      Gloves...?
      But why would you be wearing
      gloves at the time?
    
    Andrews:
      It was the night of the award
      ceremony.
    
    Andrews:
      So of course I dressed up for
      the occasion.
    
    Andrews:
      Yes, now I remember...
      I'm almost sure I was wearing
      a pair of thin gloves.
    
    Judge:
      Hmm... I see...
    
    Judge:
      Well, Mr. Wright. It seems
      the witness was wearing gloves
      at the scene of the crime.

      You left your fingerprints

      Even if you took your gloves

      What do you mean?
    
    Mia:
      I believe that guitar case
      plays a very important role
      here.
    
    Phoenix:
      But it's just an empty case...
    
    Mia:
      I wonder if it really was
      empty though...
    
    Phoenix:
      B-But the guitar...
      The bright red guitar was at
      the studio!
    
    Mia:
      Phoenix, drop all of your
      presumptions.
    
    Mia:
      What was in the guitar case
      was not the bright red guitar.

      (You don't mean... it was a
      bright WHITE guitar!? Wait,
      that's not right either...)
    
    Judge:
      Hmm, I admit it would be
      unnatural for someone to
      do that.
    
    Judge:
      So the witness was not

    Edgeworth:
      Your Honor, this is obviously

    Edgeworth:
      Steer the court towards an
      unrelated topic, and lull us
      all into his misguided...
    
    Phoenix:
      *OBJECTION!*
    
    Phoenix:
      No, Your Honor! Please
      recall that Ms. Andrews had
      testified that the vase
    
    Phoenix:
      "fell onto the guitar case"!
    
    Phoenix:
      Which means that the case
      was closed when the crime
      took place!
    
    Phoenix:
      However, it is wide open in
      this photo of the crime scene!

      I am sure this guitar case has

      If you are so sure, Wright,

      didn't intend to prove!
    
    Edgeworth:
      Deflate that head of yours!
      You haven't proven anything

      It doesn't take a genius to

      What I am proposing is...

      Inside the guitar case was
      the Nickel Samurai!
      The hero's very own costume!

      Wright! Are you saying that
      the witness opened the guitar
      case to take out a costume!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      What insane point would there
      be to doing something like
      that!?
    
    Phoenix:
      That insane point would be
      to wear the costume, of
      course.
    
    Phoenix:
      Ms. Andrews put it on to hide
      her identity so she could make
      her escape.

      Just outside the door was an
      investigative photographer who
      was starving for a big scoop.

      And in the end, she managed

      The Nickel Samurai's costume
      would have been Mr. Matt
      Engarde's!
    
    Edgeworth:
      Why would something of the
      defendant's be in the victim's
      room!?
    
    Edgeworth:
      And inside the guitar case,
      of all places!?

      Hmm, true...
      That is a little baffling...

      Mr. Wright, the court would
      like to hear your thoughts.

    x   S-Stolen!?
    x   But why would someone do
    x   such a thing!?

    x   Maybe the thief wanted to
