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...)

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 third 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!

Ever wonder what you will get if you chose that other choices? Oh, you forgot 
to save and you didn't have enough life bar; also you were too thrilled to stop 
and try the other option because you wanted to finish the case asap! 

Or do you ever wonder what all those fast texts are actually saying? Like when
your conservation was cut, there was fast action, etc

Or see what funny things will ensue when you 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

  That girl...
  You shouldn't see her anymore.

  Hey!
  It's none of your business!

  I'm telling you for your sake.
  If you continue to see her,

  Y-You're lying!

  Just listen to me.
  There's something you need
  to know about that girl... ...

  Stop it!

  D-Don't talk about her like
  that!

  It-It wasn't me!
  I-I d-didn't...

  I didn't do it!

-- 5 Years Earlier --
       Mia Fey
      2nd Trial

April 11, 9:40 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 3

Mia:
  (Whew, it's finally time...
  I'm kind of nervous...)

? ? ?:
  *Ah-HHHHEM!*

Mia:
  Oh! Mr. Grossberg!
  Good morning!

Grossberg:
  Ah, Mia.
  Please calm yourself down!

Grossberg:
  You're going to get yourself
  arrested for suspicious
  behavior, you know.

Mia:
  What are you talking about!!
  I am relaxed, Mr. Grossberg!!
  Look at me, I'm relaxed!!

Grossberg:
  *Grrrmmphh*
  L-Let go of my lapels!

Grossberg:
  Hmph... You obviously
  haven't got the temperament
  to be a lawyer.

Mia:
  I, err... I'm so sorry!
  It's just that I'm so
  nervous today...

Grossberg:
  Oh, that's right.
  This is your first time in the
  big leagues, isn't it?

Grossberg:
  Well, never you fear my dear.
  I, Marvin Grossberg, am
  at your service!

Mia:
  Umm, actually this is my
  second time in court...

Grossberg:
  Still, you surprised me...
  What, with your earnest
  request last night...

Grossberg:
  "Let me handle this case!"
  you suddenly said. And quite
  forcefully, too!

Mia:
  I just found out yesterday.
  About the case, I mean.

Grossberg:
  What?
  And you've already learned all
  the relevant facts?

Mia:
  Well about that... You see...
  I mean, of course I have!
  I think.

Grossberg:
  Oh dear...

Grossberg:
  In any case, don't let our
  client see you're so nervous.

Grossberg:
  You see the poor young man in
  the pink sweater over there?
  That's our client.

Phoenix:
  *cough* *sniffle*
  Good morning there everybody!

Mia:
  Good morning...
  (Try to keep smiling, Mia!)

Phoenix:
  I, err, I just want to say...
  I'll give it all I've got!

Phoenix:
  Yup, it'll be fine!
  No prob!
  *cough* *achoo* *achoo*

Mia:
  Oh, what's wrong?
  Do you have a cold or
  something... Mr. Wry?

Phoenix:
  Actually, it's Wright... Like
  the flying brothers... People
  screw it up all the time.

Phoenix:
  And yes I have a cold.
  That's what this mask is for.

Phoenix:
  My doc says this way, I won't
  give it to anyone else...
  Be kind to others, he says...

Mia:
  Right, Mr. Wright!
  You have nothing to fear
  in court today!

Mia:
  If you are truly innocent...
  I promise I will save you!

Phoenix:
  Nnnnggghh... P-Please
  l-let go of my shirt...
  *cough*

Mia:
  (That's right, he's the one
  on trial, not you! He's the
  one who should be nervous!)

Mia:
  (You need to stay strong for
  your client, Mia!)

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

Mia:
  My name is Mia Fey.
  I'm still pretty new at this
  lawyer thing...

Mia:
  The first time I appeared in
  court was a year ago.

Mia:
  But that trial traumatized me
  so badly, I thought I'd never
  set foot in another courtroom.

Mia:
  It's been one year since then,
  and well, here I am again.

Mia:
  But this time...
  This time I'll win.

Mia:
  For my client...
  And for myself.

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

April 11, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 2

Judge:
  Court is now in session for
  the trial of Phoenix Wright.

Mia:
  The defense is
  ready, Your Honor!

Payne:
  The prosecution is
  ready, Your Honor.

Judge:
  The defense today is...
  Ms... Ms... Mia Fey, was it?

Mia:
  Y-Yes, Your Honor.
  Is there a problem?

Judge:
  I was under the impression
  that Marvin Grossberg was
  to be leading the defense.

Mia:
  Yes! Well, you see...

Mia:
  Mr. Grossberg had...
  A-A bit of an emergency...

Judge:
  Emergency?
  But isn't that him standing
  there right next to you?

Mia:
  Yes, well...

Judge:
  You... You're just a rookie.
  Are you sure you can really
  handle this?

Mia:
  (Don't let him scare you, Mia!
  Give him your toughest look!)

Mia:
  Of course, Your Honor!
  ...
  I think.

Judge:
  Hmm...

Judge:
  Well, Mr. Payne.
  Your opening statement,
  please.

Payne:
  Well, well, well...

Payne:
  I can't believe a veteran like
  me has to spend his time baby-
  sitting a new defense lawyer.

Mia:
  ...!

Payne:
  Don't worry little girl.
  It will all be over soon.

Mia:
  (What was that all about?
  Was he trying to trash-talk
  me?)

Payne:
  Now then, I'd like to proceed
  with a summary of events
  on the day in question.

Payne:
  The incident occurred on
  the campus of Ivy University.

Payne:
  The murder victim was a
  student named Doug Swallow.

Payne:
  He was a fourth year student
  studying Pharmacology.

Judge:
  Hmm... It sounds like he was
  a very bright young man.

Payne:
  Yes, well, next we have a
  photo taken at the scene of
  the crime.

Payne:
  Students discovered the scene
  shortly after the murder. They
  found the victim's body...

Payne:
  ...and the defendant, who had
  obviously bungled his getaway.
  They then called the police.

Judge:
  Hmm... That certainly makes
  the defendant look very
  suspicious indeed.

Judge:
  Very well.
  The court accepts this photo
  into the record as evidence.

*Crime Photo 1 added to
the Court Record.*

Judge:
  By the way...

Judge:
  I can't quite tell the cause
  of death from this photo.

Payne:
  Hee, hee, hee...

Payne:
  Your reputation for sagacity
  is well-earned, Your Honor.

Payne:
  The truth is that this victim
  died a rather unusual death.

Mia:
  An unusual death...!?

Judge:
  What do you mean, Mr. Payne!?

Payne:
  Well...
  Perhaps the defense would
  like to take this question.

Mia:
  Huh...!?

Payne:
  A simple question. I thought
  I might loosen you up a bit.

Payne:
  I am a genteel-man, if you
  will.

Mia:
  Um, a what?

Mia:
  (Stand up to him, Mia!
  Show him what you're made of!)

Grossberg:
  Ah, a perfect opportunity!
  Well, what was it? The cause!
  Go on!

Grossberg:
  ...

Grossberg:
  ...Please say you know at
  least this much.

Mia:
  I-I'm so sorry...
  I-I didn't get a chance to
  read through the whole file.

Grossberg:
  *groan*
  My hemorrhoids are beginning
  to act up...

Grossberg:
  Now see here!

Grossberg:
  The details of the case are
  filed under the Court Record.

Grossberg:
  But you knew that already,
  didn't you?

Mia:
  (Ah! The Court Record! I think
  I can see that by touching the
  Court Record Button...)

Grossberg:
  All of the weapons we need can
  be found in the Court Record.

Grossberg:
  Take a good, hard look at the
  data there and think carefully
  before you answer, m'dear!

Mia:
  Y-Yes, sir!
  I'll do just that!

Mia:
  (I've got to stay calm!
  I can't let that prosecutor
  get the better of me!)

Mia:
  (The Court Record... OK, let's
  take a look! I just touch the
  Court Record Button here...)

Judge:
  Now then, would the attorney
  for the defense please answer
  the question?

Judge:
  What was the cause of death?

*** Asphyxiation ***************************
*
* Mia:
*   Well... I think you'll find
*   it was a case of asphyxiation.
*
* Judge:
*   Hmm...
*   Asphyxiation, huh?
*
* Grossberg:
*   M-Mia!
*   What are you saying!?
*
* Mia:
*   Well it's stuffy in here!
*   I can hardly breathe.
*
* Grossberg:
*   No one's asking how you feel!
*   Please, make sure to properly
*   read the Court Record!
*
* Mia:
*   I-I'm so sorry!
*   I'll take a better look!
*
* Mia:
*   (Hang in there, Mia! Open
*   the Court Record with the
*   Court Record Button...)
*
* Judge:
*   Hmm...
*   I'll ask you once again.
*
* RETURN TO QUESTION
*
********************************************

*** Electrocution **************************
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

*** Hypothermia ****************************
*
* Mia:
*   Err... Hypothermia, I believe.
*
*   ...
*   ...
*   ......
*
* Mia:
*   Umm, Mr. Grossberg?
*
* Mia:
*   Does it suddenly feel very
*   cold in here to you?
*
* Grossberg:
*   That's because your absurd
*   reply has brought a chill
*   to the courtroom!
*
* Mia:
*   I-I'm so sorry...
*
* Grossberg:
*   Look at the Court Record more
*   carefully, would you!
*
* Grossberg:
*   How can you expect to win
*   a case this way!?
*
* Mia:
*   (Hang in there, Mia! Open
*   the Court Record with the
*   Court Record Button...)
*
* Judge:
*   Hmm...
*   I'll ask you once again.
*
* RETURN TO QUESTION
*
********************************************

Mia:
  According to the Court Record,
  it was a fatal electric shock.
  In other words, electrocution.

Judge:
  Electrocution? Hmm...
  But how could such a thing
  happen?

Judge:
  Did the murderer use some
  type of new, super-powerful
  stun-gun, perhaps?

Payne:
  The answer to that will become
  crystal clear as this trial
  proceeds, Your Honor.

Payne:
  But before that, there is one
  more vital issue.

Mia:
  Wh-What's that?

Payne:
  Why, motive of course.

Payne:
  Apparently there was some
  bad blood between the victim
  and the defendant.

Judge:
  Bad blood...?

Mia:
  Wh-What do you mean...?

Payne:
  Oopsie! I'm terribly sorry.

Payne:
  You're the defense attorney,
  so you must know all about it.

Payne:
  I shouldn't be stealing your
  spotlight like this.

Mia:
  (I really don't like this
  guy's smug attitude...)

Grossberg:
  That's Winston Payne for you.
  He is one smooth operator,
  if you catch my drift.

Grossberg:
  They don't call him the
  "Rookie Killer" for nothing,
  you know.

Judge:
  Now then, let's hear from
  the defense.

Judge:
  What was the source of the
  bad blood between the victim
  and the defendant?

Judge:
  And this time, I would like to
  see some supporting evidence!

Mia:
  Ev-Evidence...?

Grossberg:
  Ah, no need to get all worked
  up over this.

Grossberg:
  As I said, all our weapons can
  be found in the Court Record.

Grossberg:
  Find the evidence you need
  and then shove it into Ol'
  Graybeard's face!

Mia:
  Y-Yes, sir!
  Into Ol' Graybeard's face!

Judge:
  Err, Mr. Grossberg.

Judge:
  Try to set a better example
  for the young lady!

Grossberg:
  Mia, evidence isn't the only
  thing in the Court Record.
  People's profiles are as well.

Grossberg:
  You can toggle between
  Profiles and Evidence, so be
  sure to go over it all!

Judge:
  Now then, let's see what
  you've got.

Judge:
  What was the cause of the
  bad blood between Phoenix
  Wright and the victim?

*** Present something wrong ****************
*
* Mia:
*   *TAKE THAT!*
*
* Judge:
*   Mr. Grossberg...
*
* Judge:
*   I honestly think it would be
*   best for the defense if you
*   were in charge.
*
* Judge:
*   I'm afraid Ms. Fey might stir
*   up some bad blood with this
*   court if she were to continue.
*
* Grossberg:
*   Or simply put, you are quite
*   mistaken, m'dear.
*
* Mia:
*   Oh no...
*   I'm so sorry...
*
* Judge:
*   Even if you are new, your
*   lack of preparation is
*   inexcusable.
*
* Judge:
*   Now take a moment and think it
*   over again.
*
* Mia:
*   Y-Yes, Your Honor!
*   (It's OK! You've got another
*   chance, Mia!)
*
* RETURN TO QUESTION
*
********************************************

*Present Dahlia Hawthorne profile*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  The reason for the bad blood
  between the two of them was...
  this woman here.

Judge:
  Dahlia Hawthorne, is it?

Payne:
  Very good, Ms. Fey.
  You seem to have picked up
  on at least this much.

Payne:
  This woman is the girlfriend
  of the defendant, Phoenix
  Wright.

Payne:
  But up until about eight
  months ago, she was with
  the victim, Mr. Swallow.

Payne:
  Clearly she has some part
  to play in this story.

Judge:
  Hmm...

Grossberg:
  Ah, he's done it again.

Grossberg:
  Before the cross-examination
  starts, he's already got the
  judge thinking like he wants.

Judge:
  Very well, Mr. Payne.
  Please call your first
  witness!

Payne:
  If it pleases the court, the
  prosecution would like to
  call Mr. Phoenix Wright.

Judge:
  What? The defendant himself?
  Well, Ms. Fey?

Mia:
  (It's fine! After all,
  Mr. Wright is innocent, right?)

Mia:
  The defense has no objection.

Judge:
  Very well.

Judge:
  The court calls Mr. Phoenix
  Wright to the witness stand!

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

Payne:
  Witness, please state your
  name and occupation.

Phoenix:
  Oh, ah, yes...
  My name is Phoenix Wright.

Phoenix:
  My job is, um... Well, right
  now, I guess I'm a suspect.

Judge:
  No, no. He means what did
  you do before you were
  arrested?

Phoenix:
  Oh...
  *achoo* *achoo* *achoo*
  I was a university student.

Payne:
  Mr. Wright.

Payne:
  You understand that you are
  suspected in the death of your
  fellow student, Doug Swa--

Phoenix:
  But! But I didn't do it!
  I'm innocent I tell you!

Phoenix:
  I'm telling you I was...
  *achoo* *achoo* *cough*
  *cough* *achoo* *cough*

Judge:
  Would the defendant please
  refrain from passing on his
  cold to the rest of us!

Payne:
  It seems the witness has
  something he wants to say.

Judge:
  Hmm...
  Well then, Mr. Wright.

Judge:
  Please tell us about your
  relation to the victim.

Phoenix:
  Right away, Your Honor!

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Victim and I --

(1)
Phoenix:
  Um, I...
  I admit I was there...

(2)
Phoenix:
  But I'm not a killer!
  All I did was find his body!

(3)
Phoenix:
  I hardly knew the guy to begin
  with...

(4)
Phoenix:
  I never even talked to that
  stuck-up British wannabe!

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

Judge:
  Hmm... I see.
  So you hardly knew the victim?

Phoenix:
  Right!
  Like I said, I'm not a killer!

Mia:
  Whew... It looks like the
  judge understands.

Grossberg:
  Mmfph...
  You're being naïve, you know.
  Too naïve.

Mia:
  Huh...?

Payne:
  Hee, hee, hee, hee, hee.

Payne:
  It seems that you've forgotten
  one small thing, young lady.

Mia:
  And that would be...?

Payne:
  This witness still has to
  undergo something called
  cross-examination.

Mia:
  Cross-examination...?

Grossberg:
  He's right. And it's the
  defense's duty to carry out
  the cross-examination.

Grossberg:
  The purpose is to determine if
  a witness's testimony contains
  any contradictions.

Mia:
  Contradictions...?

Grossberg:
  If a witness is lying, their
  statements will conflict with
  the Court Record.

Mia:
  But... Mr. Wright is my
  client!

Grossberg:
  Even if he is your client, in
  court, all lies must be struck
  down.

Grossberg:
  As a lawyer, that is
  your duty, you see.

Mia:
  (What does he mean by that?
  Is he saying that testimony
  just now...)

Mia:
  (That there was a lie --
  a contradiction?)

Judge:
  Now then, your cross-
  examination, if you please,
  Ms. Fey.

Mia:
  (Please, Mr. Wright... Tell me
  you haven't been lying!)

Mia:
  (You wouldn't do that to me...
  would you...?)

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Victim and I --

(1)
Phoenix:
  Um, I...
  I admit I was there...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       When you say "there", you
       mean the place where the
       victim was murdered?

     Phoenix:
       Y-Yeah, sort of.
       The place where SOMETHING
       happened anyway.

     Payne:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Payne:
       "Something"? You can't hide
       what happened. We have
       photographic evidence.

     Phoenix:
       *achoo*
       *achoo* *achoo* *achoo*

     Mia:
       A-Anyway, Mr. Wright...

     Mia:
       What were you doing at the
       scene of the crime?

     Mia:
       I thought you said you didn't
       know the victim, Mr. Swallow.

     Phoenix:
       It was just a coincidence!
       We bumped into each other
       by accident.

     Judge:
       A coincidence, huh...?

(2)
Phoenix:
  But I'm not a killer!
  All I did was find his body!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You say you found the body?
       So who called the police?

     Phoenix:
       Huh!? Um...
       *achoo* *cough* *achoo*
       *cough* *achoo* *cough*

     Payne:
       Unfortunately it was some
       other students that notified
       the police.

     Judge:
       "Other students"...?

     Payne:
       That's correct.
       They were witnesses.

     Payne:
       Witnesses who saw the
       defendant standing there,
       next to the body, in shock!

     Judge:
       W-What!
       Is this true, Mr. Wright!?

     Phoenix:
       *achoo*
       *achoo* *achoo*
       *achoo* *achoo* *achoo*

     Mia:
       (Could you stop sneezing every
       time you're in a bind...?)

     Phoenix:
       W-Well, it's true that I was
       pretty shocked when I found
       the body.

     Phoenix:
       But, but I...

(3)
Phoenix:
  I hardly knew the guy to begin
  with...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So, you didn't know his face,
       or even his name, right?

     Phoenix:
       Right!
       Um, well, no...
       That is... I mean...

     Mia:
       So... Which is it?
       Did you know him or not?

     Phoenix:
       *achoo*
       *achoo* *achoo*

     Judge:
       Now, see here! You can't avoid
       answering the question by
       sneezing all day!

     Phoenix:
       Err... Umm, well...
       I guess I did know his name.

     Mia:
       (N-News to me! Why didn't he
       tell me that before...?)

     Phoenix:
       Um... I heard he used to
       date Dollie.

     Judge:
       Who is this "Dollie" person?

     Payne:
       Ah yes, that would be the
       defendant's lover, Ms. Dahlia
       Hawthorne.

     Judge:
       Oh, I see.
       Ah, young love...
       So bittersweet...

     Phoenix:
       But that's all I knew
       about him!

(4)
Phoenix:
  I never even talked to that
  stuck-up British wannabe!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Mr. Wright, you stated the
       following in your testimony:

     Mia:
       "I hardly knew the guy to
       begin with..."

     Phoenix:
       Th-That's right! I mean why
       would I even--

     Mia:
       But that doesn't sound right.

     Mia:
       If you hardly knew him...

     Mia:
       ...then why would you say that
       the victim was a "stuck-up
       British wannabe"!?

     Phoenix:
       ...

     Mia:
       ...

     Phoenix:
       ...
       *achoo*

     Mia:
       Well, Mr. Wright!?

     Phoenix:
       Ah! No! It wasn't me!
       I'm not a killer, I swear!

     Judge:
       Mr. Wright. I will give you an
       opportunity to revise your
       testimony.

     Judge:
       How is it that you knew the
       victim was, as you put it,
       a "British wannabe"...?

     Phoenix:
       Y-Yes, well...

     ADD STATEMENT (4b)

(4b)
Phoenix:
  He was always walking around
  with a huge Union Jack on the
  back of his shirt.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Did you see it at the
       crime scene?
       The Union Jack, I mean.

     Phoenix:
       Y-Yes, that's right!
       I saw it at the crime scene!

     Phoenix:
       That's why... That's why I
       figured he must love British
       stuff, see?

     Phoenix:
       It's true! Cross my heart!
       I swear I didn't do it...

     Mia:
       (He's acting fishier than the
       salmon I ate last night...)

     Judge:
       May I ask you something,
       Ms. Fey?

     Mia:
       Y-Yes, Your Honor.
       (What is it now?)

     Judge:
       Who is this person anyway?
       This "Union Jack" fellow...

     Mia:
       ...

     Payne:
       The Union Jack is the name
       of the flag of England.

     Judge:
       Oh, I see...
       So you mean like the
       "Stars and Stripes", right?

     Payne:
       As usual, Your Honor, your
       insight astounds me.

     Mia:
       (Hey, something just
       occurred to me...)

     Mia:
       (Isn't there something
       strange about this bit
       just now?)

     Grossberg:
       Mia...
       There is a contradiction here!

     Mia:
       M-Mr. Grossberg!

     Grossberg:
       Quickly now! Show that
       boy you mean business!
       With evidence, I mean!

     Mia:
       (OK, Mia, check the
       Court Record carefully!)

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

Grossberg:
  Well m'dear, do you think you
  can manage on your own from
  this point?

*** I can handle it myself. ****************
*
* Mia:
*   (One year ago... I was in a
*   courtroom just like this.)
*
* Mia:
*   (I can do it.
*   I can handle this myself!)
*
* Grossberg:
*   Mmrgh... You mustn't try to
*   bite off more than you can
*   chew, Mia.
*
* Mia:
*   I-I'll be fine!
*   I know what I have to do!
*
* Grossberg:
*   Remember, you can always press
*   him to get more information.
*   Oh, and one more thing.
*
* Grossberg:
*   When you're going to state a
*   contradiction, make sure you
*   present some definitive proof.
*
* CONTINUE
*
********************************************

*** I need some help. **********************
*
* Mia:
*   Umm, Mr. Grossberg...
*   I could use a little help...
*
* Grossberg:
*   Ah, please don't look so sad.
*   It brings a tear to my eye
*   when you do.
*
* Grossberg:
*   Alright, listen carefully. By
*   comparing the testimony
*   to the Court Record...
*
* Grossberg:
*   ...you should be able to
*   discover any contradictions,
*   if there are any.
*
* Grossberg:
*   And when you've found one...
*
* Mia:
*   I present the piece of
*   evidence that contradicts
*   the witness's testimony...?
*
* Grossberg:
*   Yes. That's the ticket!
*
* Mia:
*   But still... I don't see any
*   contradictions in Mr. Wright's
*   testimony!
*
* Grossberg:
*   Hmm... Maybe you don't have
*   enough information yet.
*
* Mia:
*   Information...?
*
* Grossberg:
*   You can press for more
*   information by leaning on
*   a witness.
*
* Mia:
*   Even if they're my own client?
*
* Grossberg:
*   It doesn't matter who it is,
*   if you think they're lying,
*   press them like a cheap suit!
*
* Grossberg:
*   That is the obligation of

Mia:
  (OK, Mia. One more time, from
  the very beginning of his
  testimony!)

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*Present Crime Photo 1* at (4b)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  Are you certain you saw the
  "Union Jack"?

Phoenix:
  Y-Yeah, I'm sure. It was
  right there on his back.

Judge:
  Ms. Fey, is there some point
  to this line of questioning?

Mia:
  Your Honor, please take
  another look at the crime
  scene photo.

Mia:
  As you can see, there's
  absolutely nothing written on
  the victim's back.

Phoenix:
  Hey! Wait a minute!
  He's wearing a leather jacket!

Phoenix:
  The Union Jack was on the
  back of the t-shirt he
  was wearing...

Mia:
  I was under the impression
  that you accidentally came
  across the body.

Mia:
  But, if that was really
  the case, then you wouldn't
  know that, would you?

Mia:
  You'd have no idea at all
  what he was wearing
  underneath that jacket!

Mia:
  Mr. Wright...
  You've been lying to me!

Phoenix:
  ...
  P-P-P-Please forgive me!
  Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!

Grossberg:
  Mia!
  You've made our client cry!

Mia:
  Let him! That "P" on his
  chest doesn't stand for
  Phoenix anyways!

Mia:
  I can't believe I trusted him!
  Mr. Wright was all wrong!

Payne:
  Hee, hee, hee, hee.
  That was an impressive bit
  of cross-examination.

Mia:
  ...!

Payne:
  Thank you for uncovering
  the defendant's lies for me.

Payne:
  It's quite clear that this man
  did not simply "stumble upon"
  the scene of the crime!

Phoenix:
  Uggghhh...

Mia:
  (Uh oh...
  Did I go too far?)

Payne:
  By the way, Mr. Wright.

Payne:
  You seem to have a rather bad
  cold. Have you taken any
  medicine for it?

Phoenix:
  I, err, umm...
  Yeah, I took some but...

Payne:
  Was the medicine that you
  took an over-the-counter brand
  called "Coldkiller X"?

Phoenix:
  Yeah, that's right!
  It kills colds good!

Phoenix:
  Hey, wait a second...

Phoenix:
  How did you know I'm a big
  fan of Coldkiller X...?

Payne:
  Hee, hee, hee, hee...
  Would you happen to have that
  medicine with you right now?

Phoenix:
  Well...
  Actually, I seem to have
  lost it somewhere...

Mia:
  (He lost it?
  Does this even have anything
  to do with the case...?)

Payne:
  Mr. Wright...

Payne:
  Shall I tell you where your
  cold medicine is right now?

Phoenix:
  Huh...?

Payne:
  Your Honor! I'd like you to
  take a look at another photo
  from the crime scene!

Judge:
  Wh-What's this!
  In the victim's hand, it's...

Judge:
  It's Coldkiller X...!

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  Y-Yes, but even I've got a
  bottle of Coldkiller X in my
  apartment!

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  I'm sorry, but I'm afraid that
  argument won't work.

Payne:
  There's no doubt as to who
  this bottle of Coldkiller X
  belonged to.

Payne:
  Especially since Mr. Wright's
  fingerprints were all over it!

Mia:
  Wh-What!?

Payne:
  Sensing his murderous intent,
  Mr. Swallow must have picked
  up the bottle of medicine...

Payne:
  ...dropped by Mr. Wright and
  hid it in his hand.

Payne:
  His purpose in doing so can
  only have been to identify his
  killer as Phoenix Wright!

Judge:
  Order! Order in the court!

Payne:
  Your Honor!
  I'd like to present this photo
  and bottle as evidence!

Judge:
  Very well.
  The court will accept them
  into the record.

*Crime Photo 2 added to
the Court Record.*

*Coldkiller X added to
the Court Record.*

Payne:
  Also, the victim's
  wristwatch was broken.

Judge:
  Broken...?

Payne:
  Yes, it ceased functioning
  when a large wave of
  electricity passed through it.

Payne:
  Well, Mr. Wright!
  Do you have some kind of
  explanation for all of this!?

Phoenix:
  Uggghhh...

Mia:
  (This is really bad...)

Grossberg:
  Oh, my buttocks...
  My poor, poor hemorrhoids...

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- What Really Happened --

(1)
Phoenix:
  The truth is...
  I went because he called me.

(2)
Phoenix:
  He was in the Pharmacology
  Dept., so we agreed to meet at
  2:45 behind that building...

(3)
Phoenix:
  We talked for a bit, and then
  at around 3:00, we split up.

(4)
Phoenix:
  Then later when I went back,
  I found him lying there.

(5)
Phoenix:
  I'd been taking Coldkiller X for
  the last 2 or 3 days...

(6)
Phoenix:
  But I lost my bottle of it
  around lunchtime on the day
  of the accident.

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

Judge:
  Mr. Wright! That's completely
  different than the testimony
  you gave previously!

Phoenix:
  *achoo* *achoo* *achoo*

Phoenix:
  I-I'm sorry, Your Honor!
  I was afraid you wouldn't
  believe the truth!

Payne:
  You'll forgive me if I say
  I hardly find your current
  testimony any more credible.

Judge:
  Hmm...
  Ms. Fey, please begin your
  cross-examination.

Mia:
  (Oh please, Mr. Wright...
  Don't tell any more lies.)

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- What Really Happened --

(1)
Phoenix:
  The truth is...
  I went because he called me.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Had you ever met the victim
       before then?

     Phoenix:
       No! Never!
       ...
       But...

     Phoenix:
       That day, he called me up and
       told me he wanted to talk
       about Dollie.

     Judge:
       And this "Dollie" person
       is...?

     Phoenix:
       My um...
       It's kind of embarrassing.
       She's my, umm, sweetheart...

     Grossberg:
       Oomph...!
       Wh-What...
       What was that for, Mia!?

     Mia:
       Oh! I'm so sorry! I just felt
       like slapping something all
       of a sudden!

     Payne:
       Dahlia Hawthorne was also
       the lover of the murder
       victim, Doug Swallow.

     Payne:
       ...Before she met
       Mr. Wright, that is.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       So it was one of those nasty
       love triangles, I see...

(2)
Phoenix:
  He was in the Pharmacology
  Dept., so we agreed to meet at
  2:45 behind that building...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Was it Mr. Swallow who
       indicated you should meet at
       2:45?

     Phoenix:
       Yeah. And we were both there
       right on time.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       You said the victim was in the
       Pharmacology Dept., correct?

     Phoenix:
       Yeah, he was studying how to
       manufacture and improve
       pharmaceuticals.

     Phoenix:
       Everyone called him the
       "Alchemist of Ivy U".

     Judge:
       An "alchemist"... I see...

     Phoenix:
       I gotta admit it was a little
       suspicious. He had a whole
       laboratory and everything!

     Phoenix:
       It was filled with chemicals
       and strange machines that run
       on high-voltage electricity.

     Judge:
       Ho ho. How fascinating.
       He sounds like he was quite
       an ambitious young man.

     Mia:
       (What do I do!?
       Maybe I should ask him for
       some more details?)

     *** About timing of the meeting ************
     *
     * Mia:
     *   So you are absolutely
     *   certain that you met at 2:45?
     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   Yeah, pretty sure.
     *   That's the time class ends.
     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   But they're always doing
     *   experiments, so it doesn't
     *   matter much.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   Experiments...?
     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   Yeah. Those pharmacology
     *   guys are always in the lab
     *   whipping up something.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (Well, it looks like he's
     *   right about the time anyway.)
     *
     * Payne:
     *   Witness, let's go on with
     *   your testimony.
     *
     ********************************************

     *** About Pharmacology Dept. ***************
     *
     * Mia:
     *   I was wondering if you could
     *   tell us a bit more about the
     *   Pharmacology Department.
     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   Well OK, sure.
     *   I don't know all that much
     *   though.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   A little bit earlier in your
     *   testimony, you said something
     *   interesting.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   You said the department uses
     *   strange machines that run on
     *   high-voltage electricity.
     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   That's right.
     *   And they sure look dangerous.
     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   They use non-standard
     *   voltages, so there are high-
     *   voltage cables everywhere.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   "High-voltage cables"...
     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   Yeah, there were electrical
     *   poles set up all around the
     *   building.
     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   The high-voltage cables run
     *   overhead around the roof.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (Finally I think we're
     *   getting somewhere...!)
     *
     ********************************************

     *** Forget about it ************************
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (I've gotten everything I need
     *   from this statement. It's time
     *   to move on.)
     *
     * Payne:
     *   In any case, let's continue
     *   with your testimony.
     *
     ********************************************

(3)
Phoenix:
  We talked for a bit, and then
  at around 3:00, we split up.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So what was it you were
       talking about?

     Phoenix:
       You know... *achoo* *cough*
       That maybe we should hang out
       again sometime.

     Mia:
       ("Hang out again sometime"?
       I wish that were true.)

(4)
Phoenix:
  Then later when I went back,
  I found him lying there.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So you say you went back...

     Phoenix:
       Umm, yeah.
       That's when I found the body.

     Mia:
       Yes, but why did you go back
       in the first place?
       Weren't you angry with him?

     Phoenix:
       Well, th-that's right, I was.

     Phoenix:
       ...

     Mia:
       Then why, Mr. Wright?
       Why did you go back there?

     Phoenix:
       ...

     Phoenix:
       Umm...
       I thought maybe we could
       make up.

     Mia:
       ...

     Payne:
       ...

     Judge:
       ...

     Phoenix:
       ...
       *achoo* *achoo*

     Mia:
       (Judging by the atmosphere...
       I'm pretty sure no one is
       buying this.)

(5)
Phoenix:
  I'd been taking Coldkiller X for
  the last 2 or 3 days...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       It's rather unusual to catch a
       cold this time of the year,
       isn't it?

     Phoenix:
       Yeah, I always get a little
       careless when the weather
       starts to warm up.

     Phoenix:
       I guess I shouldn't sleep
       with the window open
       this early in spring, huh?

     Mia:
       (I suppose common sense
       is not always common...)

     Mia:
       So...
       Did anyone else know that you
       were taking cold medicine?

     Phoenix:
       Well, I always took one
       after meals...

     Phoenix:
       So I'm pretty sure all my
       friends knew about it.

(6)
Phoenix:
  But I lost my bottle of it
  around lunchtime on the day
  of the accident.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       On the day of the incident,
       what did you do for lunch...?

     Phoenix:
       Huh? What does that have
       to do with anything?

     Mia:
       You can never be too sure...

     Phoenix:
       I always eat with Dollie...
       Just the two of us.

     Phoenix:
       Dollie's homemade lunches are
       just the greatest!

     Phoenix:
       Mmm! Her mini-omelettes are
       magically delicious!
       Eheh heh heh.

     Grossberg:
       Yeowch!!
       Wh-Why did you punch me in
       the jaw!?

     Mia:
       Oh! I-I'm so sorry...!
       I just felt like hurting
       someone all of a sudden!

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

Grossberg:
  Well, Mia?

Mia:
  I don't know...

Mia:
  I can't seem to find any
  contradictions.

Grossberg:
  The boy isn't exactly what
  I'd call a natural-born liar,
  you know.

Grossberg:
  But still, we can't have him
  continue to spout nonsense.

Mia:
  I know... But what can I do!?

Grossberg:
  Well, I'm certain he must
  still be hiding something.

Grossberg:
  Information! Right now it's
  information we need more
  than anything else!

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*After pressing at (2) [+ second choice] and (6)*

Judge:
  I think that's enough for now.

Judge:
  So the defendant and the
  victim met at approximately
  the time of his death.

Judge:
  And then the defendant
  returned to the scene for some
  unknown reason.

Payne:
  I'm not entirely convinced by
  his explanation about the
  medicine bottle either.

Judge:
  Let me be frank here,
  Mr. Wright.

Judge:
  Your testimony cannot be
  trusted.

Phoenix:
  Wh-What do you mean!?

Payne:
  Hee, hee, hee, hee...

Payne:
  I knew it was too much work
  for a little girl.

Mia:
  Hmph...!

Judge:
  However, there is one
  mystery that still remains.

Payne:
  There is, Your Honor?

Judge:
  How the murder was
  carried out, of course.

Judge:
  Just how was the victim
  electrocuted?

Judge:
  I don't believe the murder
  weapon has been produced yet,
  correct?

Payne:
  Well, that is... I...
  You are correct, Your Honor.

Mia:
  (So how exactly was
  Mr. Swallow killed...?)

Mia:
  (If I could somehow establish
  how it was done...)

Mia:
  (Maybe I could still come out
  of this mess smelling like a
  rose!)

Mia:
  Your Honor!

Judge:
  Y-Yes, Ms. Fey?

Mia:
  I believe that if we were to
  piece together everything
  we've heard up until now...

Mia:
  ...we should be able to solve
  the mystery of how
  Mr. Swallow died.

Judge:
  Th-That would be most
  impressive!

Payne:
  Hee, hee, hee, hee...
  Quite the brash statement
  coming from a rookie!

Payne:
  But even a beginner like you
  must understand the basic
  rules of the court, yes?

Payne:
  An attorney must be able to
  substantiate their arguments
  with evidence!

Mia:
  Hmph! Of course I know that!
  (Actually, I had totally
  forgotten about that...)

Judge:
  Now then, Ms. Fey.
  Let me see what you've got.

Judge:
  Show me how you believe
  the victim was electrocuted!

*Present Crime Photo 1*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  As for the cause of
  death...

Mia:
  ...I'd say this picture
  captures it quite well!

Judge:
  Wh-What!?

Judge:
  But there is nothing that
  even remotely resembles
  a murder weapon here...

Judge:
  Hmm, I'm afraid the defense is
  going to have to explain this
  in a bit more detail.

Judge:
  Ms. Fey, where exactly in this
  photo is the murder weapon?

*** Present anywhere else ******************
*
* Mia:
*   Well naturally...

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

*Present severed electrical cable*

Mia:
  Well, naturally...
  it's right here!

Judge:
  That's... That's...
  What is that?

Mia:
  A severed electrical cable,
  I believe... Your Honor.

Mia:
  Remember the testimony
  we've heard.

Mia:
  The machines the pharmacology
  students use in their experi-
  ments require high voltage...

Mia:
  ...and because of that, there
  are special high-voltage
  cables strung up everywhere!

Judge:
  So then, the high-voltage
  cable...!

Mia:
  Yes, the high-voltage cable is
  the cause of death. That is
  the most likely explanation!

Judge:
  Hmm...
  That certainly sounds
  plausible.

Judge:
  Well, Mr. Payne? What do you
  have to say about this?

Payne:
  Well... I believe some praise
  is in order.

Mia:
  Don't toy with me, old man!

Payne:
  Now, now. The victim's cause
  of death may indeed have been
  a high-voltage cable.

Payne:
  However!
  I want you to think about
  what that really implies!

Payne:
  The only one who had the
  opportunity to use the cable
  as a murder weapon was...

Payne:
  The defendant!

Phoenix:
  ...
  *achoo*

Judge:
  Hmm...
  That much is certainly true.

Payne:
  Yes, and that's not all.
  We have proof.

Payne:
  Irrefutable proof that will
  establish that Mr. Wright
  was the murderer.

Judge:
  Y-You do!? Well, what is it!?

Payne:
  His fingerprints.

Judge:
  Fingerprints...?

Judge:
  You mean that the defendant's
  fingerprints were on something
  besides the medicine bottle?

Payne:
  Let's take another look at the
  crime scene photo.

Payne:
  As you can see, the victim is
  wearing a leather jacket.

Payne:
  And as you may know, leather
  holds fingerprints quite well.

Mia:
  Ah!
  Y-You mean...?

Payne:
  Yes. It was quite clearly
  imprinted on the chest
  area of the victim's jacket.

Payne:
  The palm print of the
  defendant's very own hand!

Judge:
  Wh-Whaaat!?

Payne:
  I can only think of one way
  Mr. Wright could have left
  a print like that.

Payne:
  Intent on murder, he squarely
  pushed the victim towards the
  severed electrical cable!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!
  That's enough!

Judge:
  I think we can conclude that
  there is no reason to continue
  with this cross-examination.

Grossberg:
  Stick a fork in us, we're
  done.

Mia:
  M-Mr. Grossberg!

Grossberg:
  My hemorrhoids never lie.
  The show is over, Mia.

Grossberg:
  I knew that boy was guilty the
  first time I saw him.

Mia:
  N-No! You're wrong!

Mia:
  Mr. Wright is innocent.

Judge:
  No further evidence is
  required to convince me of
  this man's guilt!

Mia:
  Y-Your Honor...!

Judge:
  At this time, I am prepared to
  render a verdict in this case!

Mia:
  *HOLD IT!*

Judge:
  Do you have something
  further to add, Ms. Fey?

Mia:
  Is this what you want,
  Mr. Wright!?

Phoenix:
  ...!

Mia:
  You still haven't told us
  the truth... the whole truth.

Mia:
  If you don't say something
  now, the judge is going to
  hand down his verdict!

Phoenix:
  B-But I... I can't!
  I-I just can't say it!

Phoenix:
  If I told you what really
  happened, then I'd b-be...

Mia:
  It's OK, Mr. Wright.
  I'm your attorney.
  You can trust me.

Phoenix:
  M-Miss Fey...

Mia:
  No matter what it is you have
  to say...

Mia:
  I believe in you and I'll
  represent you to the very end.

Phoenix:
  ...!

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  We've already established
  the defendant's guilt.

Payne:
  There's no further need for
  him to say anything.

Phoenix:
  *cough* *cough*

Phoenix:
  W-Wait a minute!

Mia:
  Mr. Wright...

Phoenix:
  I...
  I'll tell you what really
  happened!

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  But I've already told you,
  Mr. Wright. There's no need
  for further...

Phoenix:
  *cough*

Phoenix:
  I-I-I... I did it...
  I admit it!
  I pushed him!

Phoenix:
  It's my fault...
  My f-fault that D-Doug Swallow
  is dead!

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

  That girl...
  You shouldn't see her anymore.

  Hey!
  It's none of your business!

  I'm telling you for your sake.
  If you continue to see her,
  it's going to be bad news.

  Y-You're lying!

  Just listen to me.
  There's something you need
  to know about that girl... ...

  Stop it!

  D-Don't talk about her like
  that!

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

Judge:
  ...
  What you just said...
  Was that the truth!?

Phoenix:
  Y-Yes, I... I was afraid...
  Afraid that if I told the
  truth...

Phoenix:
  ...everyone would think I was
  the murderer for sure!

Judge:
  Well, as things currently
  stand, we're all absolutely
  convinced you are!

Phoenix:
  P-Please...!

Phoenix:
  Please give me one more
  chance to explain!

Phoenix:
  This time I swear...
  I swear I'll tell the whole
  truth!

Phoenix:
  It'll be OK, won't it,
  Miss Fey? I...
  I believe in you!

Mia:
  Oh! Um, th-thank you.

Mia:
  (I still can't believe it...
  He really did push the
  victim...)

Grossberg:
  Unnngh...
  It feels like my hemorrhoids
  are doing the Harlem Shake!

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- When I Pushed The Victim --

(1)
Phoenix:
  That guy... He was talking
  bad about Dollie...

(2)
Phoenix:
  I lost my temper and gave
  him a shove!

(3)
Phoenix:
  At that moment, I heard
  some kind of loud noise...

(4)
Phoenix:
  A little while after I left,
  I started to get worried.

(5)
Phoenix:
  So I went back. But h-he
  was just laying there, d-dead!

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

Payne:
  Well, the explanation is
  really quite simple.

Payne:
  When you pushed him,
  Mr. Swallow flew back and
  touched the electrical cable.

Payne:
  He died from the shock.
  And that, as they say, is
  that.

Judge:
  Hmm... A simple explanation
  indeed.

Payne:
  At the time of the incident,
  a light rain had been falling.

Payne:
  Wet from the rain, the victim
  was more easily electrocuted.

Phoenix:
  B-But!

Phoenix:
  When I pushed him, there
  weren't any electrical cables
  nearby!

Phoenix:
  If there had been something
  like that, even I would've
  noticed it!

Mia:
  (That's true...
  Even a dufus like him couldn't
  miss that!)

Judge:
  Hmm...
  Ms. Fey.

Judge:
  Let me warn you right now that
  if your cross-examination
  doesn't yield any new facts...

Judge:
  ...I intend to deliver my
  verdict without further delay.
  Are we clear on that?

Mia:
  Y-Yes, Your Honor.

Mia:
  (Don't give up, Mia!)

Mia:
  (If he is innocent, there must
  be some kind of evidence
  somewhere that will prove it!)

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- When I Pushed The Victim --

(1)
Phoenix:
  That guy... He was talking
  bad about Dollie...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So what kinds of things did
       Mr. Swallow say to you?

     Phoenix:
       He said all sorts of terrible
       things about Dollie!

     Phoenix:
       He said that she was a
       bad girl!

     Payne:
       ...

     Mia:
       ...

     Judge:
       ...
       Umm...
       Is that all?

     Phoenix:
       Yup!

     Judge:
       Well, Ms. Fey, you
       heard him yourself.

     Mia:
       (Oh boy! You're not doing
       yourself any favors here,
       Mr. Wright!)

     Mia:
       (Please don't make this harder
       for me than it already is!)

     Phoenix:
       Anyway... After he said that,
       I just, I just...

(2)
Phoenix:
  I lost my temper and gave
  him a shove!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Can you tell me about what
       happened in a little more
       detail?

     Phoenix:
       That guy... He just said what
       he wanted to say to me...

     Phoenix:
       And then he put on the jacket
       he was holding and started
       to leave.

     Phoenix:
       That's when... That's when I
       lost my temper and flew into
       a furious frenzy!

     Phoenix:
       I just gave him a... light,
       gentle shove to the chest.

     Mia:
       And when you did that, there
       was no severed cable anywhere
       to be seen?

     Phoenix:
       Right! There was nothing
       like that at all!

     Payne:
       But is it possible that you
       merely overlooked it?

     Phoenix:
       ...
       Well, I guess it's possible.

     Mia:
       (What are you doing!? Don't
       let that guy steamroll over
       you like cheap asphalt!)

     Judge:
       I believe what's important
       here is the moment the
       push occurred.

     Judge:
       Let's continue on with the
       testimony, witness.

(3)
Phoenix:
  At that moment, I heard some
  kind of loud noise...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       A "loud noise"?
       And what would you say that
       loud noise was, Mr. Wright?

     Phoenix:
       I'm not sure...
       But it was really loud!

     Phoenix:
       It was like, "SNAP!"...
       You know, come to think of it,
       I wonder what that was...

     Payne:
       Hee, hee, hee, hee...

     Payne:
       Clearly, Your Honor, it was
       the sound of the victim being
       electrocuted.

     Mia:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Mia:
       Y-You're not qualified to
       decide that!

     Mia:
       (What should I do?
       I'm treading on some
       dangerous ground here...)

     *** Ask for more details *******************

     * Phoenix:
     *   He fell right on top of it,

     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   That was probably the noise
     *   I heard.
     *
     * Judge:
     *   An umbrella, huh? And did that
     *   umbrella belong to the victim?
     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   Yeah, it was a plastic
     *   umbrella. Cheap and frail,
     *   kind of like the owner!
     *
     * Phoenix:
     *   Then again, I wish I had any

Phoenix:
  After I shoved him, he...
  He fell down on top of his
  cheap umbrella.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So Mr. Swallow fell on top of
       his umbrella?
       And you are certain of this?

     Phoenix:
       Yeah.
       It was right there under him.

     Phoenix:
       Actually, if it hadn't been
       under him, I was planning on
       borrowing it for myself.

     Mia:
       The umbrella, you mean?

     Phoenix:
       Well yeah, you see I was
       wearing this sweater here...

     Phoenix:
       Dollie stayed up late for
       nights at a time knitting
       it for me...

     Phoenix:
       I didn't want the rain to
       dampen the handmade symbol
       of her love...

     Grossberg:
       Oomph! My stomach is not
       to be used as your personal
       soccer ball, Mia!

     Mia:
       Ah! I-I'm so sorry!

     Judge:
       Continue on with your
       testimony, witness.

(4)
Phoenix:
  A little while after I left,
  I started to get worried.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       After you shoved the victim,
       did you leave the scene right
       away?

     Phoenix:
       Yes, I did! I admit it!
       I-I was furious!

     Payne:
       You left without even checking
       Mr. Swallow's condition?

     Phoenix:
       Well, um, yeah...
       But like I said, I got worried
       about him later.

(5)
Phoenix:
  So I went back. But h-he
  was just laying there, d-dead!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       At that time, did you see
       anyone else at the scene of
       the crime?

     Phoenix:
       *cough* *cough*...
       *cough* *cough* *cough*
       Um, nope. Nobody...

     Mia:
       (Geez. Could that stupid
       cough possibly sound any
       phonier?)

     Judge:
       Hmm...

     Judge:
       In that case, it's very hard
       to believe someone else could
       have been the murderer...

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

Grossberg:
  Unless we can find something
  that shows his innocence from
  that testimony, m'dear...

Grossberg:
  I'm afraid the judge will make
  his final decision with
  no remorse whatsoever!

Mia:
  Y-Yes, sir!

Mia:
  (Right now I need more info;
  info that will help me turn
  up some contradictions!)

*Present Crime Photo 1* at (3b)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  Why didn't you testify about
  the umbrella from the very
  beginning?

Phoenix:
  Come on...
  If I had mentioned that...

Mia:
  I would've been able to
  counter the prosecution's
  arguments earlier!

Payne:
  Wh-What do you mean by that?

Mia:
  Take another look at the crime
  scene photo!

Mia:
  According to Mr. Wright, the
  victim fell on top of his
  umbrella.

Mia:
  However, if you look
  closely...

Mia:
  ...the umbrella is nowhere
  near the victim. Actually,
  it's by the electrical pole!

Judge:
  Y-You're absolutely right!

Mia:
  The conclusion here is
  obvious.

Mia:
  After the defendant left, the
  victim moved from where he
  fell. In other words...

Mia:
  After he was pushed by
  the defendant, Mr. Swallow
  was still alive!

Payne:
  Nnnnooooo!!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!
  The victim... He moved...!?

Judge:
  Mr. Payne!
  The umbrella in this photo...
  Where is it now?

Payne:
  W-Well, it was collected by
  the police at the crime
  scene...

Judge:
  I want it presented as
  evidence immediately!

*Umbrella added to the
Court Record.*

Payne:
  B-But the umbrella could
  have simply been blown
  there by the wind!

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  According to the testimony,
  the victim fell on top of the
  umbrella.

Mia:
  There's simply no way it
  could have been blown there
  by the wind!

Payne:
  Nnn... Gggg... Hrrmph!
  B-B-But...!

Judge:
  I know this matter of the
  umbrella seems relatively
  trivial...

Judge:
  But as long as the smallest
  doubt remains, I cannot
  render final judgment!

Payne:
  N-N-N...

Payne:
  Noooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

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

Judge:
  However, I still find it hard
  to believe that a huge hole
  has been blown in the...

Judge:
  ...prosecution's case by the
  defendant's testimony.

*Phoenix's Testimony added
to the Court Record.*

Grossberg:
  Well done, Mia!

Payne:
  ......Hee hee.
  Hee hee hee hee hee...

Judge:
  Mr. Payne!
  What are you chuckling about?

Payne:
  Pardon me, Your Honor.
  It seems I was expecting too
  much of a free ride.

Payne:
  It was foolish to think I
  could establish guilt through
  cross-examination alone.

Judge:
  I'm afraid I don't follow what
  you're saying!

Mia:
  ...

Mia:
  Let me guess.
  You have another witness.

Payne:
  Exactly!
  And this witness's testimony
  will be incontrovertible!

Judge:
  Well!? Who is this witness!?

Payne:
  Ms. Dahlia Hawthorne.

Judge:
  Dahlia Hawthorne?
  You don't mean...
  "Dollie"?

Payne:
  I do, Your Honor.

Payne:
  The defendant's very own
  lover is a witness to the
  whole thing!

Payne:
  That's right. She was at the
  scene of the crime when
  the murder took place!

Judge:
  Whaaaat!?

Payne:
  I'm sorry to break the bad
  news to you, my dear.

Mia:
  ...

Mia:
  "Bad news"?
  You couldn't be more wrong.

Mia:
  Actually...
  I've been waiting for this.

Payne:
  You can't be serious...

Grossberg:
  Mia!
  What do you mean by that...?

Judge:
  I think this is a good point
  for us to stop at. Court will
  now enter a 20 minute recess.

Judge:
  Afterwards, we will listen to
  the testimony of Ms. Dahlia
  Hawthorne.

April 11, 11:52 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 3

Phoenix:
  Miss Fey... I-I'm sorry
  about what happened back
  there... I... I...

Mia:
  It's alright. At least you
  told us the truth in the end,
  Mr. Wright.

Phoenix:
  Yeah...
  So I guess I can start to
  relax then, huh?

Grossberg:
  Relax, my boy? You can't be
  serious! After hiding such
  important facts...

Phoenix:
  B-But...!
  But the next witness is my
  Dollie, right?

Phoenix:
  She'll save me!
  I just know she will!

Mia:
  Why do you think that?

Phoenix:
  Huh!? What do you mean!?
  She... She's the love of
  my life, that's why!

Mia:
  The love of your life, huh...

Mia:
  Would you mind telling me more
  about you and... Ms. Dahlia
  Hawthorne?

Phoenix:
  Sure! No problem!

Phoenix:
  Dollie and I... We first met
  about eight months ago right
  here in this very courthouse.

Phoenix:
  Actually, I'm studying to be a
  lawyer, on the side...
  Anyway!

Phoenix:
  One day, she and I just bumped
  into each other in the reading
  room downstairs.

Phoenix:
  That's why I really think it
  was fate that brought us
  together.

Phoenix:
  As soon as I first set eyes
  on her, I knew she was the
  one for me.

Phoenix:
  Oh, here! Take a look at this!

Mia:
  ...!

Phoenix:
  She gave this to me the day
  we met as a symbol of our
  love!

Phoenix:
  She had been wearing it
  around her neck that day,
  but then...

Phoenix:
  ...she took it off, but before
  she gave it to me she said,
  "I want you to carry this."

Grossberg:
  So she gave it to you as a
  present, I see.

Phoenix:
  This darling little bottle is
  filled with memories of my
  darling little Dollie!

Mia:
  It certainly is a little
  bottle alright.

Phoenix:
  It makes me so happy, I
  show it to everyone I meet!

Phoenix:
  I want to share my happiness
  with the whole world!

*Dahlia's Present borrowed
from Phoenix Wright.*

Mia:
  Um, anyway...

Mia:
  So after that, you and
  Ms. Hawthorne started dating?

Phoenix:
  Yeah, but she's so shy. Every
  time I see her, she always
  says the same thing to me.

Phoenix:
  "Please give it back now."

Grossberg:
  What a strange girl, asking
  for a present back like
  that...

Mia:
  By the way, Mr. Wright.

Mia:
  The day you first met Dahlia
  Hawthorne, eight months ago...

Mia:
  It wouldn't happen to have
  been on August 27th, would it?

Phoenix:
  Huh...?
  Y-Yeah, it was...
  But how did you...?

Mia:
  This happened on August 27th,
  right here in this courthouse.

Phoenix:
  What's this?
  A newspaper clipping?

Phoenix:
  Let's see...
  "Murder in the Courthouse?"
  M-Murder?

Grossberg:
  What are you reading there!?
  Let me see that!

Grossberg:
  .........!
  Oh, I see.

Grossberg:
  Mia... I think I understand
  what you're trying to say.

Grossberg:
  And I think I understand why
  you suddenly took such a
  keen interest in this case.

Grossberg:
  You believe there is some
  relationship between these
  two cases. Am I correct?

*Newspaper Clipping added
to the Court Record.*

Mia:
  I hope you don't mind,
  Mr. Grossberg...

Mia:
  I... I need to finish this
  myself.

Grossberg:
  Ah, yes, but... I'm afraid
  what you have will not be
  enough, m'dear.

Grossberg:
  I'll go and have a look at the
  downstairs reading room and
  see what else I can find.

Mia:
  Th-Thank you!

Grossberg:
  I want to do whatever I can to
  be of help to you, Mia!

Grossberg:
  Well, it looks like recess is
  about over. We'd better all
  get moving!

Mia:
  (I guess so...)

Mia:
  (That recess sure seemed
  longer than 20 minutes
  though...)


                                             To be continued.

April 11, 12:13 PM
District Court
Courtroom No. 2

Judge:
  Court will now reconvene.
  Mr. Payne, please call your
  witness.

Payne:
  This next person is someone
  who witnessed the crime as
  it happened.

Payne:
  The prosecution calls
  Ms. Dahlia Hawthorne
  to the stand!

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

Payne:
  ...

Judge:
  ...

Mia:
  (Wh-What's with this stiff
  silence...?)

Judge:
  In my long career as a judge,
  I have been deceived by many
  witnesses.

Judge:
  It's my job to doubt;
  to take no one at
  their word...

Judge:
  But in your case, I must
  admit that you radiate a
  glow of complete sincerity.

Mia:
  (I can't believe he actually
  said that!)

Payne:
  Oh! Um, now then, witness.
  Could you please state your
  full name?

Dahlia:
  ...
  I, umm...

Judge:
  Don't worry, sweetie.
  There's no need to be nervous!

Payne:
  If anyone says anything rude,
  you can be sure, I'll cut them
  right down to size!

Judge:
  And I will bash them
  with my gavel!

Mia:
  (I love how they look straight
  at me when they say that...)

Dahlia:
  Um, thank you... for calming
  my nerves.

Dahlia:
  You are all so nice...
  I almost feel right at home.

Payne:
  Not at all!

Judge:
  It was nothing!

Mia:
  If we may move on now...
  What is your full name
  and occupation?

Dahlia:
  My name is Dahlia Hawthorne.

Dahlia:
  I'm a junior in Literature
  at Ivy University.

Dahlia:
  I just want to say...
  It's an honor for me to be
  here in your noble presence.

Payne:
  The honor is all mine!

Judge:
  No... The honor is all mine.

Mia:
  (Well, we know whose
  milkshake brings all the
  boys to the yard...)

Dahlia:
  ...Umm. Sir?

Payne:
  Is there something I can
  help you with?

Judge:
  You just go on and say
  whatever is on your mind!

Dahlia:
  I'm sure that there must be
  some kind of mistake.

Dahlia:
  Feenie wouldn't kill anyone.
  I just know it!

Judge:
  Yes, yes...
  I can see why you'd say that.

Mia:
  (She's going to be a tough
  witness, alright...)

Mia:
  (It only took her 12 seconds
  to wrap them all around
  her little finger.)

Judge:
  Now then, please proceed
  with your testimony.

Judge:
  Let's hear about what you
  witnessed on the day of the
  incident, if you please.

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- What I Witnessed --

(1)
Dahlia:
  I had been planning to go
  back to Feenie's place after
  class was over.

(2)
Dahlia:
  Feenie and Dougie...
  They were talking
  behind the building.

(3)
Dahlia:
  Then suddenly... Dougie got
  all wobbly and just collapsed.

(4)
Dahlia:
  That's when Feenie noticed
  that I was there.

(5)
Dahlia:
  I went to go and find some
  other students and they
  called the authorities.

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

Judge:
  I-I don't know what to say!
  According to you,
  Ms. Hawthorne...

Judge:
  ...the defendant didn't do
  anything wrong!

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  Young lady.

Payne:
  As old as I am, even I recall
  how hot the flames of young
  passion can burn.

Payne:
  Nevertheless... It is my job
  to discover the truth.

Payne:
  Please, tell us the truth...

Dahlia:
  But... But, I...
  I would never...

Mia:
  *HOLD IT!*

Mia:
  That's more than enough,
  witness. I won't allow this
  to continue.

Judge:
  Wh-What do you mean by that?

Mia:
  Please, just let me proceed
  with my cross-examination,
  Your Honor.

Mia:
  I, for one, don't plan to win
  my case on a bunch of
  paper-thin lies!

Dahlia:
  ...Tee hee.
  You haven't changed a bit...

Dahlia:
  Mia Fey.

Mia:
  ...

Payne:
  What's this?
  So, you two are... acquainted?

Mia:
  Yes.
  We've met before... Once.

Dahlia:
  ...

Judge:
  In any case, Ms. Fey,
  the floor is all yours.

Dahlia:
  It's good to see you again,
  Madame Fey!

Mia:
  "Madame"!?
  (I'm no one's grandma yet,
  girlie!)

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- What I Witnessed --

(1)
Dahlia:
  I had been planning to go
  back to Feenie's place after
  class was over.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Now, unless I'm mistaken,
       Feenie -- I mean, Mr. Wright
       is in the Art Department.

     Mia:
       If that's the case, then
       what were you doing by
       the Pharmacology building?

     Dahlia:
       Well... I'm in the Literature
       Department. I'm studying
       Japanese Senryu poetry.

     Judge:
       Oho hoh! How wonderful!
       It's that humorous, yet
       satirical style of haiku, yes?

     Dahlia:
       "Nothing left to do...
       When a man reaches this age,
       sleep is his best friend."

     Mia:
       (That's supposed to be poetry?
       Sounds more like a mid-life
       crisis!)

     Dahlia:
       For me to get to the Art
       Department, I have to walk
       through that back area.

     Judge:
       Ah, yes I see.
       That makes sense.

     Judge:
       When I want to enter the
       courthouse, I always walk
       through the front doors.

     Mia:
       (How else would you enter?
       Teleportation!?)

(2)
Dahlia:
  Feenie and Dougie...
  They were talking
  behind the building.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So who is this "Dougie"
       person?

     Dahlia:
       Oh, I'm sorry. Doug Swallow.
       We were dating until about
       eight months ago...

     Mia:
       So what were Dougie-- *ahem*
       Mr. Swallow and Mr. Wright
       talking about anyway?

     Dahlia:
       ...

     Dahlia:
       H-How can you be so mean?

     Dahlia:
       I would never...
       I would never eavesdrop...

     Dahlia:
       I wasn't raised to be so rude
       and unrefined!

     Payne:
       That's right, Ms. Fey!

     Judge:
       Don't drag the witness down
       to your level!

     Mia:
       (Why am I being demonized
       here?)

     Judge:
       Please, go on.
       What did you see next?

(3)
Dahlia:
  Then suddenly... Dougie got
  all wobbly and just collapsed.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Are you saying that the
       victim just collapsed on
       his own?

     Dahlia:
       Y-Yes.

     Mia:
       In other words, the defendant
       never touched the victim.
       Is that right?

     Dahlia:
       I was watching the whole time.
       Feenie never did a thing to
       Dougie!

     Mia:
       (If I press her for no good
       reason, I just know the judge
       will get angry with me...)

     Mia:
       (Hmm, so what should I do
       about her testimony just now?)

     *** Leave it alone *************************
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (Hmm... I suppose her
     *   statement works in
     *   our favor, for now.)
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (I'll hold off on looking
     *   into it any deeper until
     *   it's necessary.)
     *
     * Judge:
     *   Very well, young lady, please
     *   go on with your testimony.
     *
     ********************************************

     *** Show contradiction *********************
     *
     * Mia:
     *   Feeble lies are not very
     *   becoming, Ms. Hawthorne,
     *   so let's drop them, shall we?
     *
     * Dahlia:
     *   Wh-What...! I...!
     *   I would never...!
     *
     * Payne:
     *   *OBJECTION!*
     *
     * Payne:
     *   Ms. Fey! I will not allow
     *   you to badger this witness!
     *
     * Mia:
     *   ...
     *
     * Payne:
     *   I-I believe the defense is
     *   engaged in a-a... fishing
     *   expedition.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   ...
     *
     * Payne:

     *
     * Payne:
     *   P-Please don't glare at
     *   me like that...!
     *   I-I'm just doing my job!
     *
     * Mia:
     *   Now then, Ms. Hawthorne.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   The defendant's palmprint
     *   was found on Mr. Swallow's
     *   leather jacket.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   It has already been shown that
     *   Mr. Wright did, in fact, push
     *   the victim.
     *
     * Dahlia:
     *   What...?
     *
     * Mia:
     *   There's no need to try to
     *   cover for the defendant.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   It would be much better if you
     *   came out and told us the whole
     *   truth.
     *
     * Judge:
     *   Hmm...
     *
     * Judge:
     *   There's nothing to worry
     *   about, young lady. Just tell
     *   us everything that you saw.
     *
     * Dahlia:
     *   Y-Yes, Your Honor... I-I will.
     *   If you don't mind, I-I'd like
     *   to revise my testimony.

(3b)
Dahlia:
  Um, actually, I didn't see the
  moment he pushed Dougie.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You didn't see it!?

     Dahlia:
       Well, I saw the moment when
       Dougie fell to the ground...

     Payne:
       And at that time, there was
       only the two of them at the
       scene?

     Payne:
       The defendant, Phoenix Wright,
       and the victim, Doug Swallow?

     Dahlia:
       Yes... that's right.

(4)
Dahlia:
  That's when Feenie noticed
  that I was there.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       And what did Mr. Wright say
       when he saw you?

     Dahlia:
       I-I'm sorry.
       I-I was so flustered that I...

     Dahlia:
       I really don't remember.
       P-Please forgive me.

     Mia:
       You don't remember...?

     Judge:
       Well, that's common enough.

     Judge:
       Sometimes I can't recall a
       sentence I passed only
       minutes prior!

     Mia:
       (Please... Someone, anyone...
       Stop him before he gets
       hurt... by me.)

(4b)
Dahlia:
  It didn't look like they were
  fighting, and I didn't hear
  any noise either.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So then, what did it look
       like they were doing to you?

     Dahlia:
       I thought they were having a
       nice, friendly afternoon
       conversation.

     Mia:
       (Oh, give me a break!)

     Dahlia:
       That's why I really wasn't
       watching them all that
       closely.

     Judge:
       Did you notice anything out
       of the ordinary at all?

     Dahlia:
       No, nothing at all...
       Mr. Judge.

     Judge:
       Oh, I like the sound of that!
       "Mr. Judge"...

     Judge:
       Now then, please proceed with
       your testimony.

(5)
Dahlia:
  I went to go and find some
  other students and they
  called the authorities.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       When you say "students"
       do you mean students from the
       Pharmacology Department?

     Dahlia:
       Yes. They're all very fond of
       their drugs...

     Mia:
       Please try to stay on topic!

     Mia:
       So to find some Pharmacology
       students, you went to the
       labs, correct?

     Dahlia:
       That's what I was planning
       to do... But in the end, I
       wound up not going.

     Dahlia:
       A group of about 10 research
       students came running
       out of the building entrance.

     Dahlia:
       Somehow they all seemed to
       know what was going on...

     Mia:
       (The students knew what
       was going on...?)

     *** Leave it alone *************************
     *
     * Mia:

     *   They have nothing to do with
     *   the incident.)
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (I think what I need is more
     *   information about Dahlia
     *   herself.)
     *
     ********************************************

     *** Press for more details *****************
     *
     * Mia:

     * Dahlia:
     *   Well... I don't know for sure
     *   that they knew what had
     *   happened.
     *
     * Dahlia:
     *   It's just, they all seemed
     *   kind of excited about
     *   something.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (Hmm... It doesn't look like
     *   I'm going to get any more

  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  You say you didn't hear any
  noise. Is that correct?

Dahlia:
  Yes. That's why I was very
  relaxed, looking at the
  scenery around me.

Mia:
  That's nice, but I find that
  just a little odd.

Mia:
  I have here, the testimony of
  your boyfriend, Mr. Phoenix
  Wright.

Mia:
  And he clearly testified to
  the effect...

Mia:
  ...that when he pushed the
  victim, he heard a sharp,
  loud noise.

Dahlia:
  H-He said that?

Mia:
  If you were really that close
  to the two of them, why didn't
  you hear this noise as well?

Dahlia:
  I...!

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  W-Well, maybe the noise just
  wasn't all that memorable.

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  But according to Mr. Wright's
  testimony, it was a sharp
  noise like a "SNAP"!

Mia:
  There's no way a noise like
  that could fail to make an
  impression!

Payne:
  Ack!!

Dahlia:
  Umm...
  May I have a moment
  to answer?

Judge:
  B-By all means!

Dahlia:
  I know the reason why I
  didn't hear the noise.

Dahlia:
  You see, the truth is...

Dahlia:
  I had my headphones on, and
  I was listening to music at
  the time.

Payne:
  H-H-Headphones...?
  You mean that both of your
  ears were covered?

Dahlia:
  The rain was just beginning
  to let up...

Dahlia:
  But it seemed as though Thor
  wasn't ready for his fun to
  come to an end yet.

Dahlia:
  So the sky continued to flash
  and rumble.

Mia:
  Thunder and lightning, huh...

Dahlia:
  Yes, I'm afraid of the sound
  of thunder.

Dahlia:
  So I put my headphones on
  to block it out...

Payne:
  Hee, hee, hee, hee...
  Well, Your Honor?

Payne:
  As you can see, there
  weren't any contradictions
  in her testimony after all.

Judge:
  Hmm...

Mia:
  (Wait a sec, Mia!
  That testimony just now...)

Mia:
  (She said something that
  could totally change this
  whole case!)

Mia:
  Your Honor! There is
  a problem with the
  witness's testimony!

Judge:
  Wh-What do you mean!?

Mia:
  Didn't you notice?
  She said there was lightning,
  correct?

Judge:
  Yes... What about it?

Mia:
  Well, lightning is actually a
  large discharge of electricity
  in the atmosphere, am I right?

Judge:
  Now's not the time for a
  science lesson, Ms. Fey!

Mia:
  Yes, Your Honor. Anyway,
  since the cause of death
  was electrocution...

Mia:
  ...isn't it possible that the
  victim died from being hit
  by a bolt of lightning!?

Judge:
  Oh!

Payne:
  Ah!

Dahlia:
  ...!

Judge:
  Hmm... I must admit that
  the thought had not
  occurred to me!

Mia:
  (Just what kind of thoughts
  DO occur to this guy anyway?)

Mia:
  This entire case is built on
  the premise that Mr. Doug
  Swallow was "murdered"...

Mia:
  ...but that very premise
  itself is mistaken!

Mia:
  The defense believes that
  Mr. Swallow was, in fact, the
  victim of a stray bolt!

Judge:
  I-It appears the defense
  may be on to something!

Judge:
  Could it be that the death
  was actually accidental?

Mia:
  (Alright, you did it, Mia!)

Mia:
  (I'll be taking that "Not
  Guilty" now if you don't--)

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  Hee, hee, hee, hee, hee...

Payne:
  I'm hurt that you have such a
  low opinion of me, Ms. Fey.

Mia:
  Huh...?

Payne:
  I'm not a fool, you know.
  The prosecution has done its
  research, Your Honor.

Payne:
  We found that there were
  no lightning strikes on
  that day at that location!

Mia:
  Whaaa!?

Payne:
  What's more...

Payne:
  We have evidence that the
  electrical cable is definitely
  linked to this case.

Judge:
  E-Evidence, Mr. Payne!?
  Well, what is this evidence?

Payne:
  This affidavit.

Judge:
  And who is this affidavit
  from?

Payne:
  The Pharmacology students who
  were conducting experiments in
  their labs that day.

Payne:
  Allow me to read out to the
  court the testimony of the
  Pharmacology students.

Payne:
  "All equipment in the labs
  lost power all of a sudden at
  around 3:00 PM that day."

Judge:
  Was it a blackout?

Payne:
  All of the labs' equipment
  runs of high-voltage, Your
  Honor.

Mia:
  So you're saying the equipment
  lost power because...

Payne:
  Precisely.
  They lost power because of
  the severed electrical cable.

Payne:
  The power outage occurred
  at approximately 3:00 PM...

Judge:
  Which fits with the time of
  death listed in the autopsy
  report.

Payne:
  Exactly! In other words...

Payne:
  The victim died as a result of
  touching the severed
  electrical cable.

Payne:
  According to the students,
  the cables were very old.

Payne:
  They were planning on having
  them replaced in the near
  future.

Judge:
  Hmm, I see...

Payne:
  Apparently the cables had
  become so brittle...

Payne:
  ...that even the smallest bump
  would've caused them to break.

*Students' Testimony added
to the Court Record.*

Judge:
  However...
  There is one thing
  that troubles me.

Judge:
  If the cable could have been
  broken by any small bump...

Judge:
  ...then it wouldn't have
  snapped if it hadn't been
  bumped into, correct?

Payne:
  W-Well... I suppose you could
  say that.

Judge:
  Hmm, Ms. Fey.

Judge:
  Do you have any thoughts
  regarding the cause of the
  severed cable?

Mia:
  Y-Your Honor...

Mia:
  (I don't like how this is
  looking one bit!)

Mia:
  (I have to come up with
  something to try to regain
  some momentum!)

Mia:
  If it pleases the court, the
  defense would like to state
  its opinion.

Judge:
  Well then, let's hear it.

Judge:
  Who or what was it that
  caused the cable to break?

*** Present something wrong ****************

*
* Mia:
*   This is it!
*   This is why the cable snapped.
*
* Payne:

*
* Judge:
*   I believe that the only thing
*   that has snapped is the mind
*   of the defense.
*

*Present Phoenix Wright profile*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  Your Honor.
  Please think back to
  Mr. Wright's testimony.

Judge:
  The defendant's testimony?

Mia:
  He said that after he pushed
  the victim, he heard a loud,
  sharp noise.

Mia:
  Now, this happened at around
  3:00 PM, correct?

Judge:
  Yes, that sounds right.
  Wait! Are you saying that...

Mia:
  The lab equipment lost power
  at 2:55 PM... which fits right
  in Mr. Wright's timeline.

Mia:
  In other words, it was
  Mr. Wright's shove that
  caused the power outage.

Payne:
  Yes!
  The prosecution also came
  to that same conclusion.

Payne:
  And it was that very shove
  that caused Mr. Swallow to be
  electrocuted!

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  I'm afraid I can't agree with
  you there, Mr. Payne.

Payne:
  Wh-What's that supposed
  to mean?

Mia:
  Take a good look at where
  the victim landed after being
  shoved.

Mia:
  See the umbrella?
  It's by the electrical pole.

Mia:
  That's right. The victim
  banged into that pole as a
  result of being pushed.

Mia:
  It was that impact that caused
  the cable to break.

Judge:
  Hmm... Well, that makes sense.
  And then the victim was
  electrocuted.

Mia:
  I'm sorry Your Honor, but no.
  It doesn't make sense at all.

Mia:
  If the victim was shoved into
  the far pole...

Mia:
  ...then he couldn't have been
  electrocuted by this severed
  cable in the foreground here!

Payne:
  AAAAAAAAAAHH!!

Mia:
  In other words...

Mia:
  Someone other than my client
  must have electrocuted the
  victim!

Judge:
  Order!
  Order in the court!

Mia:
  (Ah, the lamentations of
  my enemy. How I've longed
  to hear them!)

Judge:
  It-It's true...
  The defense is
  absolutely correct!

Judge:
  There doesn't seem to be any
  way the defendant could have
  done it--

Dahlia:
  Umm...
  Mr. Judge, sir?
  May I say something?

Dahlia:
  The madame attorney's
  explanation...

Dahlia:
  She said some things that are
  a little different than I
  remember them.

Judge:
  Wh-Wh-

Payne:
  Wh-Wh-

Mia:
  What the...!?

Dahlia:
  Please, just once more.

Dahlia:
  May I please testify one
  last time?
  Please... Mr. Judge?

Judge:
  Of course it's alright!

Judge:
  Just go right ahead and give
  your new testimony!

Mia:
  (This is it...)

Mia:
  (She's finally starting to
  show her true colors!)

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- What I Witnessed, Part 2 --

(1)
Dahlia:
  The truth is...
  Feenie pushed him twice.

(2)
Dahlia:
  The first time was into the
  electrical pole.
  That's when the cable broke.

(3)
Dahlia:
  Then Dougie tried his best
  to run away from him...

(4)
Dahlia:
  But Feenie caught up and
  crashed into him from behind.

(5)
Dahlia:
  The cable snapping, and Dougie
  being electrocuted -- it all
  occured in less than a minute.

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

Judge:
  Hmm...
  So after being shoved...

Judge:
  ...the victim got up and
  tried to run away.

Payne:
  And that is when the
  defendant pushed him for the
  second time.

Dahlia:
  I'm so sorry, Feenie...
  But I... I just have to tell
  the truth.

Dahlia:
  Am I doing the right thing?
  Am I, Mr. Judge?

Dahlia:
  Of course you are, my dear!
  As painful as it may seem,
  you are.

Judge:
  Now then, Ms. Fey.
  You may proceed with your
  cross-examination!

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- What I Witnessed, Part 2 --

(1)
Dahlia:
  The truth is...
  Feenie pushed him twice.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Ms. Hawthorne...
       Previously in your testimony
       you said the following...

     Mia:
       "Actually, I didn't see the
       moment he pushed Dougie."

     Dahlia:
       I know... I-I'm sorry.
       I wanted to protect Feenie.

     Mia:
       So that's why you basically
       lied to the court?

     Dahlia:
       I was a bad girl... I know...
       Um, Mr. Judge?

     Judge:
       Y-Yes?

     Dahlia:
       Would you please, please
       forgive little old me?

     Mia:
       Of course he won't!
       What you did is called
       "perjury"...

     Judge:
       Oh, come now!
       It was just a little old
       white lie!

     Judge:
       We'll forget it this time!
       But please be more careful
       from now on, alright?

     Dahlia:
       Oh, thank you so much,
       Mr. Judge.

     Judge:
       Not at all!
       Ho ho ho...!

     Mia:
       (The judge had better be more
       careful himself! A dark alley
       is friendlier than that girl!)

(2)
Dahlia:
  The first time was into the
  electrical pole.
  That's when the cable broke.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You're saying you actually saw
       the victim get pushed into the
       electrical pole?

     Dahlia:
       I know he doesn't look it, but
       Feenie can be a bit of an imp
       when he wants to be.

     Mia:
       (Oh, really...?)

     Dahlia:
       But I never imagined that he
       would cause an electrical
       cable to break...

     Dahlia:
       Feenie really is scary
       when he gets mad...

     Judge:
       Yes, he sounds like a very
       dangerous individual indeed.

(3)
Dahlia:
  Then Dougie tried his best
  to run away from him...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So let me get this straight.

     Mia:
       You were happily listening to
       music on your headphones while
       you watched this scene unfold?

     Dahlia:
       Waaaaah...

     Payne:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Payne:
       Ms. Fey! I'll have to ask you
       to stop badgering the witness!

     Dahlia:
       Umm... I wasn't happy...
       I was so scared that I
       couldn't even move.

     Dahlia:
       All I could do was stand there
       and cheer them on...

     Mia:
       Ch-Cheer them on?
       What do you mean by that?

     Dahlia:
       Well, I wished the best for
       them both, and that they would
       each give the fight their all.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       That's very sweet of you
       to be so supportive.

     Payne:
       And what happened after that?

(4)
Dahlia:
  But Feenie caught up and
  crashed into him from behind.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       That doesn't sound quite
       right...

     Mia:
       There were handprints found
       on the chest of the victim's
       leather jacket.

     Mia:
       Mr. Payne, were there also
       prints found on the back of
       his leather jacket?

     Payne:
       W-Well, um...
       N-No, there weren't...

     Dahlia:
       Madame Fey, may I suggest
       that you listen a little more
       carefully?

     Mia:
       ...!?

     Dahlia:
       I said that he "crashed" into
       him from behind, right?

     Dahlia:
       My Feenie wouldn't leave any
       prints behind in that case,
       would he?

     Mia:
       Unngghh...

(5)
Dahlia:
  The cable snapping, and Dougie
  being electrocuted -- it all
  occured in less than a minute.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Did you actually witness the
       moment the victim was
       electrocuted?

     Dahlia:
       I-I'm sorry.
       I didn't actually see it.

     Dahlia:
       I... I turned my eyes away...

     Payne:
       That's understandable.

     Judge:
       Yes indeed. It would have
       been a horrific sight for
       anyone to behold.

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

Mia:
  (If I don't figure out the
  contradiction here...)

Mia:
  (...it's all over!)

Mia:
  (She didn't have much time
  to come up with her lie, so
  this is my best chance.)

Mia:
  (There must be a hole in her
  testimony somewhere!
  Think, Mia!)

Dahlia:
  I'm afraid I don't
  understand...

Mia:

  Could you please take a look

Dahlia:
  Oh. That medicine...
  That's the one Feenie likes
  to take for his cold.

Mia:
  It's not the medicine I want
  you to look at...

Mia:
  It's the wristwatch.

Mia:
  It stopped at the precise time
  the victim was electrocuted.

Mia:
  In other words... 3:05 PM.

Judge:
  Yes, and your point is,
  Ms. Fey...?

Mia:
  My point is this!

Mia:
  What time was it when the lab
  suffered that power outage due
  to the cable snapping?

Payne:
  Well, according to the
  students' testimony, the
  answer is clear.

Payne:
  It was 2:55 PM...
  Yeeaaaaaaarrrgghhh!!

Mia:
  Would you care to explain to
  the court, Ms. Dahlia
  Hawthorne...

Mia:
  ...what exactly happened
  during this 10 minute
  interval!?

Dahlia:
  ...!

Mia:

  that the real murderer killed
  Mr. Doug Swallow!

Mia:
  ...are completely unaccounted
  for!

Payne:

Payne:
  Th-Then who was it!?
  Who else are you saying
  could've done it!?

Mia:
  There's only one person
  who could have murdered
  Mr. Swallow.

Mia:
  Only after my client
  had left the scene...

Mia:
  ...was there a window of
  opportunity for the real
  killer!

Judge:
  Ms. Fey.

Judge:
  Is the defense ready to indict
  someone as this "real killer"?

Mia:
  (It's finally time.)

Mia:
  (This is the moment I've
  been waiting for.)

Mia:
  Yes, Your Honor.
  We are ready.

Judge:
  Very well.
  But remember!

Judge:
  If you accuse the wrong
  person, you will be penalized.

  *achoo*

Judge:
  Y-Y-You!
  Wh-What is it!?

Phoenix:
  Please... Please strike
  everything the defense said
  just now from the record!

Mia:
  What the...!?
  Are you daft!?

Phoenix:
  You're totally wrong,
  Miss Fey!

Phoenix:
  Dollie...
  She...

Phoenix:
  She couldn't do something
  like that!

Judge:
  Mr. Wright!!
  Get back in your seat!

Judge:
  Bailiff!
  Grab that man!

Phoenix:
  Aaaarrgghh... *achoo* *achoo*
  Leave my Dollie alone!
  *achoo* *cough*

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

? ? ?:
  ...
  *sigh*
  That boy...

Grossberg:
  He's gotten himself in
  way over his head.

Mia:
  Oh...!
  Mr. Grossberg! You're back!

Grossberg:
  It seems I've arrived just
  in the nick of time.

Grossberg:
  I found the police report
  on that incident in your
  newspaper clipping!

*Police Report added
to the Court Record.*

Mia:
  Thank you so much!
  This is exactly what I was
  hoping for!

Grossberg:
  You'd better take a good
  look at it...

Grossberg:
  It... err... details how you
  came to lose your boyfriend.

Judge:
  Now then, the defense
  has made a very serious
  accusation.

Judge:
  Mr. Payne, what do you have
  to say about this?

Payne:
  W-Well really, Your Honor...
  I... I... That is I...

Dahlia:
  May I interrupt you for
  just a moment,
  Mr. Prosecutor?

Payne:
  Ah, don't you worry, my
  dear. I have this situation
  well in hand.

Dahlia:
  ...
  ...
  *sniffle*

Payne:
  Err, that is I... Um...
  G-G-Go right ahead.

Dahlia:
  Madame Fey, are you
  seriously accusing me of
  killing my sweet Dougie?

Mia:
  Yes. I am.

Mia:
  Not only am I saying you
  murdered Doug Swallow...

Mia:
  ...but you also tried to pin
  the whole thing on your
  current lover, Phoenix Wright!

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  I told you that you should
  let me handle this...

Dahlia:
  ...
  ...
  *weep*

Payne:
  Urk. Sorry.
  P-Please go ahead.

Dahlia:
  How can you say that!?
  I'm absolutely devoted to my
  dear Feenie.

Dahlia:
  The notion that I would try
  to frame him is ludicrous!

Dahlia:
  This is all just too much for
  poor little me to bear!!

Grossberg:
  Ah, I believe the girl is
  trying to ask what on Earth
  her motive would be.

Mia:
  (The answer to that lies
  somewhere in this police
  report. It must!)

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

Mia:
  Eight months ago, an incident
  occurred in the basement
  cafeteria of this building.

Mia:
  And then...
  that same day the two of
  them "accidentally" meet...

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

Mia:
  Your Honor.

Mia:
  The defense requests further
  testimony from Ms. Dahlia
  Hawthorne!

Judge:
  F-Further testimony...?
  What about?

Mia:
  About the events of the day
  when she first met the
  defendant, Mr. Phoenix Wright.

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  What could that possibly have
  to do with this case!?

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  The witness claims that she
  has no reason to frame the
  defendant, am I correct?

Mia:
  Well I have evidence that
  suggests that she, in fact,
  had a very good reason!

Judge:
  Very well then, the court
  grants the defense's request.

Judge:
  Young lady.
  Would you mind staying on
  for just a bit longer?

Dahlia:
  Of course not, Mr. Judge.

Mia:
  (Get ready for the battle of
  your life, Dahlia Hawthorne!)

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- How I Met My Feenie --

(1)
Dahlia:
  I first met my darling Feenie
  eight months ago.

(2)
Dahlia:
  It's like we were destined to
  meet in this very courthouse's
  basement reading room.

(3)
Dahlia:
  The moment our eyes met,
  my heart skipped a beat!

(4)
Dahlia:
  We've been going out ever
  since that fateful day.

(5)
Phoenix:
  We're so lovey-wuvey we
  literally make people sick!
  It's just jealousy, I think...

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

Judge:
  Mr. Wright! Do that again and
  you will be held in contempt
  of court!

Mia:
  (And now we enter the final
  act of our little drama!)

Grossberg:
  As we used to say in the days
  of my youth, "Go get her!"

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- How I Met My Feenie --

(1)
Dahlia:
  I first met my darling Feenie
  eight months ago.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So until that time, you had
       been dating Doug Swallow?

     Dahlia:
       Y-Yes.
       I'm a real fool, I know.

     Dahlia:
       Letting my emotions change
       so quickly...
       I'm ashamed of myself.

     Judge:
       No, no. Not at all!

     Judge:
       Look at me!
       I'm infamous for changing
       my mind!

     Judge:
       My critics have even taken
       to calling me "Judge Fickle"!
       Ho! Ho! Ho!

     Mia:
       (Maybe you should look for
       a different line of work...)

     Grossberg:
       Despite that, however, he
       always, always hands down
       the correct verdict.

     Grossberg:
       That's why some people also
       call him "The Great Judgini".

(2)
Dahlia:
  It's like we were destined to
  meet in this very courthouse's
  basement reading room.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       The courthouse reading room?
       That's a strange place to meet
       the love of your life.

     Dahlia:
       That's not true, Madame Fey.
       After all, Feenie was...

     Dahlia:
       Feenie was not only an art
       student, but he was also
       planning on becoming a lawyer.

     Mia:
       I'm not talking about him.
       I'm talking about you,
       Ms. Hawthorne.

     Mia:
       What was a literature student
       like you doing in a courthouse
       reading room?

     Payne:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Payne:
       This line of questioning is a
       waste of time! It has nothing
       to do with our murder case!

     Judge:
       Ms. Fey, I'm warning you.
       If this has nothing to do
       with Mr. Swallow's case...

     Mia:
       (I have to remember the
       judge is on Dahlia's side.
       I'd better tread carefully...)

     *** Wait and see ***************************
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (Mia, if the judge gets any
     *   angrier, you'll lose the
     *   whole case!)
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (I'll just have to hold my
     *   tongue for the time being.)
     *
     * Judge:
     *   Now then, young lady, please
     *   go on with your testimony.
     *
     * Judge:
     *   Tell us about the time you
     *   first met Phoenix Wright.
     *
     ********************************************

     *** Keep pressing **************************
     *
     * Mia:
     *   Your Honor, if you'll allow me
     *   some latitude, I think I can
     *   establish relevance.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   Please ask her to continue
     *   on with her testimony!
     *
     * Judge:
     *   Very well.
     *   Young lady, I've got a simple
     *   question for you.
     *
     * Judge:
     *   What were you doing downstairs
     *   in the courthouse reading
     *   room?
     *
     * Dahlia:
     *   If it pleases Your Honor,
     *   the answer is simply this.
     *
     * ADD STATEMENT (2b)
     *
     ********************************************

(2b)
Dahlia:
  I had come to this courthouse
  to do some research for a
  paper I was writing.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You were writing a paper?
       On what?

     Dahlia:
       On the relationship between
       modern Senryu poetry and
       the criminal underworld.

     Judge:
       Ho ho ho. That sounds like a
       fascinating research idea.

     Dahlia:
       "Am I getting old?
       Now I've even forgotten
       what I've forgotten..."

     Mia:
       (Again with the mid-life
       crisis stuff!?)

     Grossberg:
       Mia, why did that girl really
       come to this courthouse? Isn't
       that what you wanted to know?

     Grossberg:
       And speaking of forgetting
       things, you haven't forgotten
       the police report, have you?

     Grossberg:
       I went through a lot of
       trouble to get it, m'dear, so
       be sure to read it carefully.

(3)
Dahlia:
  The moment our eyes met,
  my heart skipped a beat!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Hmm... So what was it about
       Mr. Wright that made your
       heart malfunction like that?

     Mia:
       In my personal opinion, he
       just looks like a typical
       snotty-nosed college brat.

     Dahlia:
       Perhaps to a woman your age.
       But to me, Feenie is handsome!

     Mia:
       Perhaps to you, Ms. Hawthorne.
       But to the rest of the planet,
       he's a dime a dozen.

     Payne:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Payne:
       Love is a mysterious thing,
       and I object to this line of
       questioning!

     Payne:
       If you were to look at my wife
       for example, you might all
       be shocked!

     Judge:
       He's telling the truth.
       It was truly, truly shocking.

     Dahlia:
       "Beautiful mushroom,
       growing tall in the darkness.
       It comes from cow dung."

     Dahlia:
       That's the poem that best
       describes how I feel about my
       Feenie.

(4)
Dahlia:
  We've been going out ever
  since that fateful day.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Were there any bad feelings
       between you and Mr. Swallow?

     Dahlia:
       No, none at all.
       We parted on very good terms.

     Mia:
       But that can't be!

     Payne:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Payne:
       Our investigation also shows
       that it was a clean breakup.

     Mia:
       Huh...
       Are you... Are you sure?

     Payne:
       Yes, it seems that they both
       wanted it that way.

     Mia:
       (So the victim wanted to
       break up with her...?)

     *** Press further **************************
     *
     * Mia:
     *   So you're saying that
     *   Mr. Swallow also wanted
     *   to break up with you?
     *
     * Dahlia:
     *   W-Well, y-you see...
     *
     * Payne:
     *   *OBJECTION!*
     *
     * Payne:
     *   What a cruel thing to ask a
     *   lovely young lady like this!
     *
     * Payne:
     *   ...
     *   By the way, I have never ONCE
     *   considered leaving MY wife!
     *
     * Judge:
     *   No one cares, Mr. Payne.
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (She didn't deny it...
     *   That must mean...)
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (Doug Swallow must have
     *   seen through her little act.)
     *
     * Mia:

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

Grossberg:
  Listen to me, Mia.
  That woman has the judge in
  the palm of her hand, you see.

Grossberg:
  So the only way to discredit
  her is to find a contradiction
  in her testimony!

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*Present Police Report* at (2b)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  Ms. Hawthorne, you weren't
  here because of your research
  paper, were you?

Mia:
  Didn't you actually come here
  for a much more important
  reason?

Dahlia:
  ...!

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  Wh-What is the meaning of
  that cocky smile on your face,
  Ms. Fey!?

Mia:
  Eight months ago, right here
  in this very courthouse,
  there was another tragedy.

Payne:
  Another tragedy...?

Judge:
  Do you mean the incident
  in which an attorney was
  poisoned?

Dahlia:
  ...

Mia:
  The name of the suspect
  in that incident is listed
  here in this report.

Mia:
  And that name is...
  Dahlia Hawthorne!

Payne:
  What!?

Judge:
  D-Dahlia H-Hawthorne!?

Mia:
  Yes! The sweetie-pie of
  everyone's eye, Ms. Dahlia
  Hawthorne!

Mia:
  She was the prime suspect
  in a criminal case just eight
  months ago!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!
  ...
  Th-This is unbelievable!

Judge:
  It's true then...
  The loveliest rose can hide
  the cruelest thorn...

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  Ms. Fey!
  Th-That's not fair!

Payne:
  You can't slander my witness
  with an unrelated case!

Dahlia:
  Umm...

Payne:
  I, Winston Payne, will not
  allow it!

Dahlia:
  Mr. Prosecutor...
  I believe I was speaking.

Payne:
  Urk. P-Pardon me...
  G-Go right ahead...

Dahlia:
  It's true that about
  eight months ago...

Dahlia:
  ...the police expressed some
  interest in me.

Judge:
  Hmm...
  Expressed some interest, huh?

Dahlia:
  Mr. Judge, sir... I know I'm
  under oath, so I'll tell you
  the absolute truth.

Dahlia:
  I did not commit the crime
  that occurred during that
  incident eight months ago.

Judge:
  I see...

Mia:
  (OK... I've tied the
  two crimes together!)

Mia:
  (Now I've just got to stay on
  the offensive!)

Grossberg:
  Well done, Mia!

Grossberg:
  Ooohhh...
  You've really lit a fire in my
  heart... And my buttocks!

Grossberg:
  I can hardly tell which is
  more inflamed, my spirit...
  or my hemorrhoids!

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Poisoning --

(1)
Dahlia:
  I met the lawyer who was
  poisoned to discuss something
  in the cafeteria that day.

(2)
Dahlia:
  I left my seat for just a
  moment, and that's when
  it happened!

(3)
Dahlia:
  From what I heard, it was
  a liquid poison that is lethal
  at just 2 teaspoons.

(4)
Dahlia:
  Not only that, I heard it was
  a very special kind of poison.

(5)
Dahlia:
  So you see, I'm innocent!
  I wouldn't even know where
  to get a poison like that!

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

Judge:
  Hmm...
  So that's what happened
  here eight months ago.

Payne:
  However, as you've heard from
  the witness's testimony, she
  had nothing to do with it.

Payne:
  I think the defense is
  just about out of tricks...

Mia:
  I'm terribly sorry, Mr. Payne.

Mia:
  But I'm afraid the defense has
  many more tricks up its
  sleeve today.

Mia:
  And I'll be sure to show them
  to you before the end of this
  cross-examination!

Payne:
  Unnggh!

Payne:
  What the...!?
  Why does the defense
  suddenly feel stronger...?

Grossberg:
  Aha! Mia!
  You're glowing with a true
  lawyer's aura, m'dear!

Grossberg:
  That proud posture and
  self-confidence!
  Absolutely smashing!

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Poisoning --

(1)
Dahlia:
  I met the lawyer who was
  poisoned to discuss something
  in the cafeteria that day.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       What were you talking about
       with the defense attorney?

     Dahlia:
       Well I... I'm sorry, but
       that's confidential.

     Judge:
       According to the report,
       you were being interviewed
       regarding another case.

     Dahlia:
       The lawyer that was killed...

     Dahlia:
       He said he wanted to talk
       about an incident I was caught
       up in when I was younger.

     Mia:
       Why don't you tell us all
       what that incident was?

     Payne:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Payne:
       That has absolutely nothing
       at all to do with this case!

     Judge:
       Objection sustained.
       The defense's question is
       stricken from the record.

     Mia:
       You get involved in a lot of
       "incidents", don't you,
       Ms. Hawthorne?

     Dahlia:
       Well, I guess I was just
       born under a bad sign.

     Phoenix:
       Don't worry, Dollie!
       I'll protect you!

     Judge:
       You heard the man.
       Now THAT is true love,
       young lady!

     Dahlia:
       Oh, Feenie...
       Please...

     Mia:
       (*gag* Those two really are
       making me ill. Albeit for
       decidedly different reasons.)

(2)
Dahlia:
  I left my seat for just a
  moment, and that's when
  it happened!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       How long were you gone?

     Dahlia:
       I've already answered all
       these questions for the
       police...

     Dahlia:
       But if you must know, maybe
       10 or 20 minutes...

     Mia:
       And where were you during
       that stretch of time?
       Using the toilet?

     Phoenix:
       What are you SAYING,
       Miss Fey!?

     Phoenix:
       Toilet!?
       My perfect little Dollie
       doesn't poop!

     Judge:
       You heard the defendant,
       Ms. Fey.
       Better luck next time.

     Dahlia:
       Oh, Feenie...
       Please...

     Payne:
       The police have already
       looked into this whole matter.

     Payne:
       This line of questioning is
       nothing but a waste of the
       court's time!

     Judge:
       Objection sustained.
       Ms. Hawthorne, please
       continue with your testimony.

(3)
Dahlia:
  From what I heard, it was
  a liquid poison that is lethal
  at just 2 teaspoons.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       About how much liquid is
       2 teaspoons?

     Judge:
       Hmm, well let me see...

     Judge:
       My bottle of eyedrops says
       it's 1/2 fluid ounce... Which
       is equal to 3 teaspoons...

     Mia:
       (So it's about two-thirds
       of that amount, huh...)

     Dahlia:
       The poison was found in the
       lawyer's mug of coffee.

     Dahlia:
       It must have been after I
       left the table...

     Dahlia:
       Someone must have quietly
       slipped it in there.

(4)
Dahlia:
  Not only that, I heard it was
  a very special kind of poison.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       A "special kind of poison"?
       How so?

     Dahlia:
       Well, I heard that it's
       almost impossible to detect.

     Judge:
       Oh? And where would something
       like that come from...?

     Dahlia:
       I'm sorry... All I know is
       what I overheard the
       policemen saying.

     Dahlia:
       They said something about
       using advanced chemical
       processes to purify it...

     Judge:
       "Chemical processes"...?
       Well, well... That's quite...

     Judge:
       ...impressive.
       Most impressive...

     Mia:
       (The better question is, how
       did the criminal get something
       like that?)

(5)
Dahlia:
  So you see, I'm innocent!
  I wouldn't even know where
  to get a poison like that!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       And that's the reason they
       didn't arrest you?

     Mia:
       Because no one could show
       how you could've gotten the
       poison?

     Dahlia:
       I think that's a good enough
       reason, Madame Fey.

     Payne:
       She's right. And I think we've
       all had enough of Ms. Fey's
       questions!

     Judge:
       Hmm...

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

Grossberg:
  So in essence, the main reason
  Ms. Hawthorne was never
  arrested for this crime...

Grossberg:
  ...was because no one could
  show how she could have
  obtained the poison.

Mia:
  Then all we have to do is find
  a way to establish how she
  could've gotten some, right?

Mia:
  (Great... Now just how did a
  lit. student get a hold of
  poison, of all things...?)

*Present Doug Swallow profile* at (5)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  You wouldn't know how
  to get that kind of poison?
  I don't believe you.

Dahlia:
  What...!?

Mia:
  In fact, you had easy
  access to that kind of
  poison, didn't you?

Mia:
  At your boyfriend's lab!

Judge:
  B-Boyfriend!?
  You mean the victim,
  Doug Swallow!?

Mia:
  That's right. Up until eight
  months ago, Ms. Hawthorne
  was dating Mr. Swallow.

Mia:
  And if you'll recall,
  Mr. Swallow was a Pharmacology
  student at Ivy University.

Payne:
  Ph-Ph-Pharmacology...

Mia:
  His laboratory contained
  highly advanced chemistry
  equipment.

Mia:
  In fact, without such
  equipment...

Mia:
  ...the culprit could never
  have obtained such a rare
  and special poison!

Dahlia:
  ...!

Mia:
  Well, Ms. Hawthorne?
  It seems you had access to
  such a poison after all.

Mia:
  And then, it was a matter of
  slipping it into the victim's
  coffee when he wasn't looking.

Mia:
  The only person who could've
  done that was the one sitting
  at his very table -- you!

Dahlia:
  NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!
  C-C-Could it be...!?

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  Th-That's nothing but a
  baseless accus--

Dahlia:
  May I say something, Madame
  Fey?

Mia:
  What is it, Ms. Hawthorne?

Dahlia:
  The amount of poison in
  the coffee was 2 teaspoons,
  correct?

Dahlia:
  In order to carry that much
  liquid... you would need some
  kind of container.

Judge:
  Well, yes... That's true.

Dahlia:
  I was searched immediately
  after the incident took place.

Payne:
  Quite true. In fact the
  entire courthouse was
  turned upside down.

Dahlia:
  But... they didn't find a
  suspicious container
  anywhere, did they?

Mia:
  (She's right...
  They even mentioned that
  in the report!)

Mia:
  W-Well, you could've easily
  gotten rid of something that
  small!

Dahlia:
  Excuse me, Madame, but this
  is a court of law!

Dahlia:
  If you're saying I threw the
  poison container away...

Dahlia:
  ...I think you need to show
  some kind of proof!

Mia:
  P-Proof...!?
  (She got me good with that!)

Judge:
  Provide some evidence or
  I'll have to disallow this
  line of questioning, Ms. Fey!

Grossberg:
  Unless we can come up
  with some evidence, we're
  going to lose this lead!

Mia:
  (The police conducted a full
  body search of Dahlia and of
  the entire courthouse.)

Mia:
  (And yet the container holding
  the poison disappeared right
  after the crime occurred...)

Judge:
  If you're going to accuse the
  young lady of committing the
  murder...

Judge:
  ...then where is the container
  the poison was carried in?
  What happened to it?

*Present Dahlia's Present or Phoenix Wright profile*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  You were forced to get
  rid of the container in a
  hurry, weren't you?

Mia:
  And that's why you passed
  it on to someone that had
  nothing to do with the case!

Mia:
  Someone that you knew
  wouldn't be searched!

Judge:
  W-Who is this person!?

Mia:
  Mr. Phoenix Wright, of course.

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  So the defendant was this
  witness's accomplice?

Mia:
  Of course not.

Mia:
  She gave the poison to
  him disguised as... a present.

Dahlia:
  Wh-What...!?
  B-But...
  But that's...!

Judge:
  Hmm... That's a charming
  little necklace.

Judge:
  Is this... a little bottle?
  It's really quite cute.

Judge:
  So what about it?
  What does it mean, Ms. Fey?

Mia:
  The day that the witness met
  and fell for Mr. Phoenix
  Wright was eight months ago...

Mia:
  August 27th.
  The very same day as the
  poisoning incident.

Mia:
  Under the pretense of love,
  the witness gave my client
  a present.

Mia:
  All for the purpose of hiding
  the one piece of evidence
  that would give her away!

Judge:
  Whaaat!?
  Are you saying there's a
  deadly poison in here!?

Mia:
  No, there's no longer any
  poison in that bottle.

Mia:
  However!

Mia:
  I'm certain if the crime lab
  were to analyze it, they
  would find a trace amount!

Dahlia:
  .........

Dahlia:
  NOOOOOOOOOO!!
  WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!

Judge:
  Or-Order! Order in the court!
  Ahh, umm...

Phoenix:
  *OBJECTION!*

Phoenix:
  On behalf of Dollie, I object!

Payne:
  M-Mr. Wright!
  Control yourself!

Phoenix:
  I-I won't let you bully
  her like this...!

Judge:
  Mr. Wright!
  I thought I told you to stay
  in your seat!

Mia:
  Mr. Wright... Why?

Mia:
  Why are you going through so
  much trouble to protect her?

Phoenix:
  Why?

Phoenix:
  B-Because...!
  Because I'm madly in
  love with her!

............

Judge:
  Hmmm, hmmmm...

Judge:
  "Madly in love"... I haven't
  heard anyone say that in
  a long time...

Mia:
  Mr. Wright...
  Have you ever thought
  about this...

Mia:
  Why exactly would a woman
  like Dahlia Hawthorne want
  to date you anyway?

Phoenix:
  W-Well...
  I guess she must be madly
  in love with me too...

Mia:
  (Mr. Wright... Please!
  Open your eyes...!)

Mia:
  At this point in the trial,
  I think it should be obvious
  to everyone.

Mia:
  The real reason that Dahlia
  Hawthorne is dating you is...

*** she's madly in love with you. **********
*
* Mia:
*   Naturally it's because she
*   has fallen madly in love with
*   you too!
*
* Phoenix:
*   See? Just like I told you!
*
* Grossberg:
*   M-M-Mia!
*   Are you thinking clearly!?
*
* Grossberg:
*   Th-That flies in the face of
*   everything we've learned up
*   to this point!
*
* Mia:
*   I-I'm sorry!
*   I don't know why I even said
*   that...
*
* Mia:
*   *sigh* I guess it's because
*   I just like the sound of that
*   phrase, "madly in love"...
*
* Judge:
*   Ms. Fey.

* Judge:
*   You can't remain a starry-eyed

Mia:
  Dahlia Hawthorne was not
  and is not madly in love
  with you.

Mia:
  The only think she's after is
  that bottle necklace you love
  to wear around your neck!

Phoenix:
  My n-necklace...?

Mia:
  Back there in the waiting
  room, you said it yourself...

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

Phoenix:
  Yeah, but she's so shy. Every
  time I see her, she always
  says the same thing to me.

Phoenix:
  "Please give it back now."

Grossberg:
  What a strange girl, asking
  for a present back like
  that...

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

Mia:
  For Dahlia Hawthorne, that
  necklace is irrefutable
  evidence of her crime.

Mia:
  That's why she absolutely
  had to get it back.

Phoenix:
  Y-You're lying!

Mia:
  But you never gave it
  back to her.

Mia:
  And to make things worse for
  her, you insisted on showing
  it to everyone you met.

Mia:
  That's why she......

Phoenix:
  ...I don't......
  I don't believe you...

Phoenix:
  NOOO!! Th-That's a LIE!!
  Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!

Mia:
  Eeeeeek!!

? ? ?:
  M-Mia!
  Are you alright!?

  Ah! The defendant!
  He-He's getting away!

? ? ?:
  Bailiff! Hurry!
  After him!

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

Grossberg:
  Mia! Mia!
  Are you alright!?

Mia:
  Y-Yes, I-I think so...

Grossberg:
  That boy...!
  He went completely insane!

Mia:
  Where... Where's Mr. Wright?

Grossberg:
  It looks like the bailiff
  caught him, so he should be
  brought back here soon.

Mia:
  Thank goodness...
  ...
  Oh no!

Grossberg:
  What is it!?

Mia:
  The bottle necklace...!
  Ms. Hawthorne's "present"...!

Mia:
  It's gone...!

Grossberg:
  Whaaaaat...!
  That's terrible!!

Mia:
  Mr. Wright must have grabbed
  it when he slammed into me!

Grossberg:
  Foolish boy...!
  That's the only thing that
  could have saved him...

Grossberg:
  What in blazes are we supposed
  to do noooow!!

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

Judge:
  Mr. Wright!! This sort of
  behavior is unprecedented in
  the history of this court!

Phoenix:
  I-I'm sorry...

Payne:
  I'm afraid that your apology
  is not enough!

Mia:
  Mr. Wright!

Mia:
  What did you do with the
  bottle necklace?

Phoenix:
  F-Forgive me...
  I... I... I'm sorry...

Mia:
  It's OK.
  Just give back the necklace.

Phoenix:
  ...
  I ate it.

Mia:
  ...
  You what?

Judge:
  You... You...
  You ate it...?

Phoenix:
  It was too big to swallow,
  so I had to chew it into
  little bits first, but yeah...

Phoenix:
  ...Ugh.
  Aaaaaaaaahhhh!

Mia:
  What the...?

Payne:
  Wha--...?

Judge:
  What is he doing now!?

Mia:
  *HOLD IT!*

Mia:
  Y-Your Honor!!
  You've got to stop the trial!!

Mia:
  Mr. Wright! Mr. Wright!
  Are you feeling OK!?
  Does your stomach hurt!?

Mia:
  That bottle you swallowed
  may have had some poison
  left in it!

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  Ehee hee...
  Hee, hee, hee, hee, hee...

Payne:
  It seems the defendant has
  proven the prosecution's
  case for us.

Payne:
  Clearly that bottle did not
  contain a deadly poison!

Mia:
  H-How can you be so sure!?

Payne:
  Hee, hee, hee...
  I think that's obvious...

Payne:
  As you can see, the
  defendant is still very
  much alive.

Payne:
  As for the poison? More like a
  fledgling defense attorney's
  overactive imagination!

Judge:
  Hmm...
  So it would seem.

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  No!
  There must be some mistake!

Mia:
  The bottle must not have
  had any poison left in it!

Mia:
  Either that or the poison
  must have lost its
  potency...

Payne:
  There, there...
  It's alright, rookie.

Payne:
  Trusting your client is the
  most noble thing a defense
  attorney can do.

Payne:
  And it's heartwarming to see
  that you placed this much
  faith in Mr. Wright.

Phoenix:
  ...!

Payne:
  But that's how it is for us
  on the prosecution side, too!

Payne:
  For example, I would trust
  the witness, Ms. Hawthorne,
  with my very life!

Payne:
  Which is why I can state that
  your assessment of her is
  completely wrong!

Judge:
  That's enough!

Judge:
  Unfortunately, Ms. Fey,
  I cannot accept your
  explanation of the events.

Mia:
  B-But why!?

Judge:
  This may be impossible for
  a beginner like you to
  understand...

Judge:
  ...but in a court of law,
  evidence is everything.

Mia:
  Unngggh!

Mia:
  (Even though I've proven so
  much, is she going to get
  away with everything...?)

Judge:
  Well, now that the suspicion
  surrounding Ms. Hawthorne
  has been cleared up...

Judge:
  I would like to proceed
  with the trial.

Phoenix:
  *HOLD IT!*

Mia:
  M...

Mia:
  Mr. Wright!

Phoenix:
  I'm sorry, Miss Fey.
  It totally slipped my mind.

Phoenix:
  I'm really, really sorry...

Phoenix:
  I know you believed in me,
  and I feel like I really let
  you down.

Mia:
  Mr. Wright...
  What are you trying to say?

Phoenix:
  Um...
  There's something I forgot
  to tell you.

Judge:
  What is it!?

Phoenix:
  That day...
  The day I met Doug Swallow...

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

  That girl...
  You shouldn't see her anymore.

  Hey!
  It's none of your business!

  I'm telling you for your sake.
  If you continue to see her,
  it's going to be bad news.

  Y-You're lying!

  Just listen to me.
  There's something you need
  to know about that girl... ...

Swallow:
  Last night, someone stole
  some poison from our lab.

Phoenix:
  P-Poison...?

Swallow:
  The same thing happened
  eight months ago. A drug
  sample was stolen.

Swallow:
  She came to the lab that
  time, too.

Swallow:
  It could only have been her!
  That girl is a thief!

Phoenix:
  Stop it!

Phoenix:
  D-Don't talk about her like
  that!

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

Mia:
  Is it true?
  Did he really say that?

Payne:
  Th-That's ridiculous!

Phoenix:
  There's one more thing...
  After I pushed him that day...

Phoenix:
  I got worried and came
  back to have a look.

Phoenix:
  And she was there...
  Dollie was right there.

Phoenix:
  She was crouched down
  next to him...

Mia:
  What!?

Phoenix:
  She told me not to ever
  tell anyone about it, but...

Phoenix:
  I'm sorry, Dollie!

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  Y-Your Honor!
  This is...
  The defendant is...

Phoenix:
  Miss Fey! You tell them!

Phoenix:
  D-Dollie didn't do it...
  Sh-She's innocent!

Mia:
  (So Dahlia stole poison eight
  months ago too, huh...)

Mia:
  (If you put that together
  with Mr. Wright's testimony...)

Mia:
  (...then there's only one
  possible conclusion!)

Mia:
  The defense believes that
  Ms. Dahlia Hawthorne...

Mia:
  ...stole some poison on the
  night before she killed Doug
  Swallow.

Judge:
  The night before...!?

Mia:
  Naturally, her motive for
  stealing it was to kill
  someone!

Phoenix:
  Miss Fey...

Judge:
  If you're so certain of your
  theory, then let me ask you
  this.

Mia:
  (Mia, this is your last
  chance. Think carefully
  now...)

Mia:
  (There's something that
  she desperately wanted
  to get back... Therefore...)

Judge:
  Exactly who was Ms. Dahlia
  Hawthorne planning to kill?

*Present Phoenix Wright profile*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  There was one person that was
  standing squarely in
  Ms. Dahlia Hawthorne's way...

Mia:
  And that person was...
  Mr. Phoenix Wright!

Phoenix:
  ...
  M-M-M-M-M-M-Meeee!?

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  Th-That's preposterous!!

Payne:
  After all, it was Doug Swallow
  that was murdered!

Mia:
  Well, it's true that that's
  how things worked out...

Mia:
  But, let's remember that
  Mr. Swallow died of
  electrocution, not poison.

Mia:
  The person that Ms. Hawthorne
  was planning to poison was in
  fact...

Mia:
  You, Phoenix Wright.
  There's no one else
  that it could be.

Judge:
  B-But how can that be!?
  I-I thought Mr. Wright and
  Ms. Hawthorne were in love!

Mia:
  (Poor Mr. Wright...
  This must be killing him...)

Mia:
  (Hang in there... I'll bring
  her to justice... I swear it!)

Mia:
  As I said before, the only
  thing Ms. Hawthorne truly
  cared about was...

Mia:
  ...the one piece of evidence
  linking her to that incident
  eight months ago.

Mia:
  That's right.
  The bottle necklace.
  That's all she cared about.

Judge:
  But even so...
  Why... Why would she go
  so far as to murder him!?

Mia:
  Eight months ago, just after
  the fall of that attorney in
  the basement cafeteria...

Mia:
  Dahlia Hawthorne could
  think of only one thing.

Mia:
  How to get rid of the bottle
  necklace as quickly as
  possible!

Phoenix:
  N-No... It-It can't be...

Mia:
  It was a pretty good move she
  made, too. The evidence was
  missing for a long time.

Mia:
  But there was just one
  big problem.

Mia:
  Although she got him to hide
  the evidence, Mr. Wright
  refused to return it to her.

Mia:
  To him, the tiny little bottle
  was a cherished treasure.

Mia:
  He even showed it to
  everyone he met!

Judge:
  Y-You mean...
  TH-THAT'S why she tried to
  kill Mr. Wright...?

Mia:
  Correct, Your Honor.
  It was to retrieve that piece
  of evidence.

Phoenix:
  ...
  Th-Th-Th...

Phoenix:
  That can't be trueeeeeeeee!!

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

Dahlia:
  "Feenie"...
  What a joke you are.

Dahlia:
  Honestly, how can any woman
  ever count on you for
  anything?

Dahlia:
  I even told you time and time
  again to keep your trap shut
  about me and that necklace.

Dahlia:
  ...You disgust me!

Judge:
  M-Ms. Hawthorne...?

Mia:
  It appears that this
  trial will be coming
  to an end soon...

Dahlia:
  Fine. I can tell you plan on
  making me into a criminal
  no matter what I say!

Mia:
  You ARE a criminal,
  Ms. Hawthorne!

Dahlia:
  We'll see about that.
  But first, where's your
  evidence?

Dahlia:
  It seems your sniveling
  little crybaby of a client has
  eaten the bottle as a snack.

Mia:
  Urk...!
  W-Well, umm...

Dahlia:
  Hey! Old man!
  Are you senile or something!?

Dahlia:
  Why don't you say something
  instead of sitting there with
  that dumb look on your face!

Judge:
  M-M-Ms. Hawthorne!
  What's happened to you...!?

Dahlia:
  Hmph!
  Are you really that shocked?

Dahlia:
  ...

Dahlia:
  Or do you prefer me...
  this way, Mr. Judge?

Judge:
  Nnnnggghh...!

Dahlia:
  With absolutely no proof, you
  treat a voluntary witness
  like she's a mass-murderer...

Dahlia:
  Well, I have nothing more
  to say. I'll be heading home
  now, if you don't mind.

Judge:
  B-But y-you're not finished...

Dahlia:
  Fine!
  Then ask this nasty old
  hag to finish up already!

Mia:
  *HOLD IT!*

Mia:
  (I can't let her get away
  this time!)

Grossberg:
  Stop, Mia!

Grossberg:
  If you keep on pushing
  without any evidence...

Grossberg:
  ...you could pay the
  ultimate price as a lawyer!

Mia:
  The ultimate price...?

Judge:
  You'd be forced to take off
  your attorney's badge forever,
  I'm afraid.

Mia:
  N-No...!

Dahlia:
  You'd better think it over
  carefully, Ms. Fey...
  Or should I say, Ms. Gray.

Judge:
  Well, Ms. Fey?

Judge:
  Can you provide evidence
  that would establish her guilt
  once and for all?

Mia:
  (If I mess up here, my
  career as a lawyer is over!)

Mia:
  (But to be honest... at this
  point I don't have any
  evidence that's well-founded.)

Mia:
  (Even so...)

Mia:
  (I'd rather lose my attorney's
  badge than let her get
  away with murder!)

Mia:
  Your Honor!
  The defense would like
  to present proof!

Payne:
  Im-Impossible!
  You can't possibly...

Dahlia:
  Stupid woman!

Judge:
  It is the opinion of the court
  that there has already been
  enough discussion.

Judge:
  Therefore, I will allow only
  one piece of evidence to
  be presented.

Mia:
  J-Just one!?

Judge:
  If you are unable to
  establish her guilt...

Judge:
  ...then I'm afraid that a very
  harsh verdict will immediately
  be handed down on Mr. Wright.

Mia:
  I understand, Your Honor.

Dahlia:
  I can just imagine the
  headlines for tomorrow's
  newspaper.

Dahlia:
  Up-and-coming lawyer
  plummets to Earth before she
  gets the chance to soar...

Mia:
  (She was planning to
  poison Mr. Wright...)

Mia:
  (If that's the case, then
  the poison was probably
  in there!)

Judge:
  Well then, Ms. Fey.
  Please present your evidence.

Judge:
  Show to this court irrefutable
  proof that Ms. Hawthorne was
  planning to poison Mr. Wright!

xxx Present something wrong xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
x
x Mia:
x   *TAKE THAT!*
x
x Judge:
x   Ms. Fey...!
x   After all that thinking, THIS
x   is your best answer!?
x
x Grossberg:
x   C-Couldn't you have
x   tried a little bit harder...?
x
x Mia:
x   Please wait, Your Honor!
x   I just... made a mistake!
x
x Judge:
x   Very well.
x   But even I have my limits!
x
x RETURN TO QUESTION
x
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

*Present Coldkiller X*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  Here it is, Your Honor!
  The evidence that will prove
  her guilt once and for all.

Judge:
  Coldkiller X...
  Phoenix Wright's beloved
  cold medicine.

Payne:
  Hee, hee, hee, hee...
  Does our rookie defense
  attorney have a bit of a cold?

Mia:
  If I did, I still wouldn't
  take this cold medicine.

Mia:
  After all...
  It's been poisoned.

Judge:
  Wh-What!?

Mia:
  Remember what the defendant
  said in his testimony.

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

Phoenix:
  But I lost my bottle of it
  around lunchtime on the day
  of the accident.

Phoenix:
  I always eat with Dollie...
  Just the two of us.

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

Mia:
  She was the one who took
  his bottle of Coldkiller X.

Mia:
  Then she poisoned it,
  knowing that Mr. Wright was
  going to take some.

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  Now you're really grasping
  at straws!

Payne:
  After all, it was the victim,
  Doug Swallow, that was
  holding the medicine.

Mia:
  I would like the court to
  recall the crime that happened
  here eight months ago.

Mia:
  Where did Ms. Hawthorne
  hide the evidence?

Judge:
  Huh?
  What are you talking about?

Mia:
  Eight months ago,
  the poison was hidden
  in her bottle necklace...

Mia:
  ...which she then gave to
  someone else for
  safekeeping.

Mia:
  Someone she had accidentally
  run into in the reading room.
  My client, Mr. Phoenix Wright!

Mia:
  Yes, that's right...
  She did the same thing
  this time as well.

Mia:
  After shoving the victim,
  Mr. Phoenix Wright left
  the scene of the crime.

Mia:
  That is when the murderer,
  Dahlia Hawthorne, appeared.

Mia:
  With her, she was carrying
  the poisoned bottle of
  Coldkiller X.

Mia:
  This, of course, was so she
  could carry out her plan to
  murder Mr. Wright.

Judge:
  Hmm, I believe she did testify
  that she was going to meet
  with the defendant.

Mia:
  Yes, and she heard and saw
  everything that happened
  at the scene of the crime.

Mia:
  Including what the defendant
  and victim were arguing about,
  and the cut electrical cable.

  That's when she realized,
  "I can't allow Doug
  Swallow to live!"

Mia:
  She used the severed
  electrical cable to silence
  him forever.

Mia:
  Unfortunately for her,
  this is when the problem
  occurred.

Mia:
  Mr. Wright, who she thought
  had left the scene, came back
  to check on the victim.

Mia:
  And on top of that, because
  of the power outage, some
  students showed up as well.

Mia:
  It's hardly any wonder that
  she was, as she put it,
  in a state of panic.

Mia:
  Recall that she was carrying
  that bottle of poisoned cold
  medicine.

Mia:
  She must have thought,
  "What if they search me like
  they did eight months ago?"

Payne:
  E-Eight months ago...?

Mia:
  Yes, she disposed of the
  evidence exactly the same
  way as she did back then!

Mia:
  She had someone else hold it!
  In this case... Doug Swallow!

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

  ............

Dahlia:
  Oh come on now, everyone.
  Surely you aren't fooled,
  are you?

Dahlia:
  This stupid woman!
  She's nothing but a
  filthy, stinking liar!

Dahlia:
  Right, Mr. Prosecutor...?

Payne:
  Huh...!?

Payne:
  Y-Yes...
  Th-That's exactly right.
  It's just pure desperation!

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  Hmm... I wonder which one
  of us is the desperate one?

Mia:
  So, Ms. Hawthorne.

Mia:
  This cold medicine...
  I wonder if you wouldn't
  mind taking some?

Dahlia:
  ...!?

Mia:
  Well, Mr. Wright ate that
  necklace of yours, right?

Mia:
  Now it's your turn to
  prove your innocence.
  What do you say?

Dahlia:
  ...!

Mia:
  If I'm just a filthy, stinking
  liar, then there's no need
  to worry.

Mia:
  So come on! Show us!
  I dare you to take some of
  this medicine right now!

Dahlia:
  ...

Dahlia:
  ...Grr... Nngghh... Hnnn...

Dahlia:
  MIA FEY...!
  MIA... FEYYYY...!!

Dahlia:
  Do. You. Think. You've. Won?
  Well!? Do you, Mia Fey?

Mia:
  ...!

Dahlia:
  Heh... Heh... Heh... Heheh...
  That's. Just. Fine!

Dahlia:
  For the time being...

Dahlia:
  For the time being,
  victory is yours.

Mia:
  "For the time being"?

Dahlia:
  Well... I have a very long
  memory, you know.

Dahlia:
  You and I will meet again...
  I'm certain of it.

Mia:
  ...?

Dahlia:
  Well then, Mr. Judge...
  I'll see you later too, OK?

Judge:
  Huh...!?
  Err, why, um...
  Y-Yes...

Dahlia:
  I'm going to go spend a
  little quality time with the
  men in blue now.

Dahlia:
  I wish you all the best.

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

Mia:
  (Whew...)

Mia:
  (It's finally all over.)

Payne:
  *OBJECTION!*

Payne:
  I...
  I refuse to accept this!

Payne:
  The defense hasn't shown a
  scrap of evidence to support
  their outrageous claim!

Judge:
  B-But even so, your witness
  seems to have accepted it...

Payne:
  I don't care!!
  I'm Winston Payne!

Payne:
  And I don't believe one
  word that this rookie lawyer
  has said!

Mia:
  Well then, Mr. Payne,
  let me ask you this.

Payne:
  Y-Yes!?

Mia:
  Would you care to try
  this cold medicine?

Payne:
  WHAT!?

Mia:
  Just a little earlier, I
  could've sworn you said...

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

Payne:
  There, there...
  It's alright, rookie.

Payne:
  For example, I would trust
  the witness, Ms. Hawthorne,
  with my very life!

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

Mia:
  So, if she's so trustworthy...

Mia:
  ...then I'm sure there
  couldn't possibly be any
  poison in here, right?

Payne:
  Err... Well... Ummm...
  You see... Umm... Y-Yes...

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  ...And here comes the
  backpedal!

Mia:
  Come on now, "Rookie Killer"!
  Show this rookie how it's
  done!

Mia:
  How much trust do you
  really have for this woman?

Mia:
  Are you willing to bet
  your life!?

Payne:
  Gggg... Nnngh... Unnngggggh...

Payne:
  NNNNNNYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Payne:
  M-M-My HAAAAAAAAAAIIIIRRR!!
  IT-IT-IT'S FLYYYYYIIIIIIIING
  OOOOOFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!

Payne:
  MY BEAUUUUUUUTIFUL HAIR!!
  NOOOOOOO!!!
  NOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Payne:
  WAAAAAHAAAAWAAAAHAAAA
  NO-NO-NO-NO-No-No-no-no
  noooooooooooooooooooooo...

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

Judge:
  Umm, Mr. Payne?
  About Ms. Dahlia Hawthorne...?

Payne:
  Y-Y-Yes, Your Honor!
  I'll file papers for her
  immediate arrest...

Judge:
  Hmmm...
  Tragic... but not surprising.

Judge:
  I knew there was something
  suspicious about her from
  the very beginning!

Mia:
  (Don't lie! Just admit you
  were wrong!)

Judge:
  By the way, Ms. Fey?

Mia:
  Y-Yes, Your Honor?

Judge:
  You said earlier that you and
  Ms. Dahlia Hawthorne knew
  each other...?

Mia:
  ...

Mia:
  Your Honor...
  How we knew each other had
  nothing to do with this case.

Judge:
  Hmmm...
  Very well...

Judge:
  Err, Mr. Payne.

Payne:
  This can't be happening!
  It's a nightmare! It's like
  losing to my daughter!

Judge:
  ...It appears Mr. Payne has
  lost his spirit along with his
  hair.

Judge:
  Does the defendant have
  anything further to say?

Phoenix:
  It-It can't be true...
  My... Dear... Dollie...
  *achoo*

Judge:
  Hmm... Very well then...

Judge:
  I believe I am ready to
  pass judgment and bring
  this trial to an end.

Judge:
  The court finds the
  defendant, Phoenix Wright...

* N O T   G U I L T Y *

Judge:
  This court is adjourned!

April 11, 3:16 PM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 3

Grossberg:
  Mia!
  You were wonderful in there!

Mia:
  Thank you for everything,
  Mr. Grossberg.

Grossberg:
  During the verdict, I thought
  my hemorrhoids were going
  to explode like Mt. Vesuvius!

Mia:
  Umm, Mr. Grossberg...
  Do you, um, maybe think you
  could stop talking about them?

Grossberg:
  Hmph! That's rather rude.

Grossberg:
  Anyway, this case
  really made me think.

Grossberg:
  What does it really mean to
  have a relationship of mutual
  trust with the client?

Grossberg:
  Perhaps it is we veteran
  lawyers who have lost
  sight of this.

Phoenix:
  ...

Mia:
  Oh! Mr. Wright...!
  Congratulations!

Phoenix:
  Th-Thanks...
  Um, you know...
  I was thinking...

Mia:
  Go on...

Phoenix:
  The Dollie that I saw up there
  on the witness stand...

Phoenix:
  I don't think that was
  really her.

Mia:
  Um, what?

Phoenix:
  Yeah... The Dollie I know could
  NEVER have said those kinds
  of terrible things...

Phoenix:
  Maybe... Maybe she was like...
  I don't know... A fake or
  something.

Mia:
  (Boy... This poor kid still
  hasn't got a clue...)

Mia:
  You need to forget about
  her, Mr. Wright.
  For your own sake...

Phoenix:
  Yeah, you're right...
  That's probably for the best.

Mia:
  Also...
  You need to relax a bit more.
  Try to grow up a little.

Phoenix:
  B-But...

Phoenix:
  Out of all my friends, everyone
  says I'm the most grown up!

Mia:
  (Eek! What kind of company
  must this guy keep!?)

Phoenix:
  ...

Phoenix:
  Right now I...
  I'm studying to become
  a lawyer myself.

Mia:
  That's what you keep saying...

Mia:
  But I thought you were
  in the Art Department?

Phoenix:
  Well, yeah...
  I guess I am...

Phoenix:
  But there's a friend that I
  desperately want to help!

Phoenix:
  And if I hurry, then I should
  still be able to save him in
  time!

Mia:
  I see.

Phoenix:
  Say, Miss Fey?

Phoenix:
  A lawyer is someone who
  can help people when they're
  in trouble, right?

Mia:
  Mr. Wright,
  I'm still new at this myself.

Mia:
  But...
  I think that's exactly what
  a lawyer is.

Phoenix:
  OK... I'm going to do it.
  I'll study my butt off.
  I'll become a lawyer for sure!

Phoenix:
  I hope...
  I hope we see each other again
  some day, maybe even in court.

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

Phoenix:
  It's been five years since I
  was acquitted of all charges.

Phoenix:
  I became a lawyer like I
  planned, and managed to
  save my friend.

Phoenix:
  But Mia has passed on
  to a better place.

Phoenix:
  For me, this trial brings up
  a lot of painful memories.

Phoenix:
  But... it also brings up some
  very precious ones.

Phoenix:
  And memories that I thought
  would never rise to the
  surface again...

Phoenix:
  Mia is gone now.

Phoenix:
  But even so...
  I can hear her in my mind.

Mia:
  Phoenix, no matter what,
  always believe in your client.

Mia:
  In a court of law, your
  greatest weapon is your
  belief.

Phoenix:
  ...Five long years...

Phoenix:
  Something has happened
  that's made me think back
  to her words of wisdom...

Phoenix:
  But that is a story for
  another day...

Maya:
  Hey, Nick!
  Get a load of this!

Maya:
  Hey, are you listening to me!?
  You can clean the toilet
  later! This is important!

Phoenix:
  *sigh*
  What are you freaking
  out about now?

Maya:
  Hee hee.

Maya:
  Today will be the last time
  you talk to me that way!

Phoenix:
  Huh?

Maya:
  We're about to hit the
  big time!

Phoenix:
  "Big time"? And what do
  you mean by "we"? You don't
  mean you and me are...?

Maya:
  Ha! Don't be silly.

Maya:
  I'm talking about me and
  Pearly, of course!

Pearl:
  Hello.
  It's a pleasure to see you
  again, Mr. Nick!

Phoenix:
  Pearls! You haven't changed
  a bit! Wait... What are
  you doing here anyway?

Pearl:
  Hee hee.
  Haven't you heard, Mr. Nick?

Pearl:
  Here! Take a look at this!

Phoenix:
  (What's this...?
  Some kind of poster?)

Phoenix:
  Kurain Village...
  Isn't that...?

Maya:
  That's right.
  It's our hometown...
  Pearly and mine, that is.

Phoenix:
  What's this about "treasures"
  from the boonies?

Maya:
  Ha ha ha. Very funny.
  You can laugh all you want...

Maya:
  But you'll be singing another
  tune tonight!

  Her very first client was a

  That was a whole year before
  Mia and I ever met.

       Mia Fey
     First Trial

February 16, 9:24 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 4

Mia:
  (Ugh... I'm so nervous.
  I feel like I'm going to die.)

Mia:
  (I never should've
  accepted this case...)

Mia:
  Eeeeeeek!

Mia:
  ...Ah! G-G-Good morning!
  (Don't be so jumpy, Mia!)

? ? ?:
  I-I din't do nuttin'!
  I swear!
  I din't kill nobody!

Mia:
  (Terry Fawles...
  ...My first client.)

Mia:
  (Sentenced to death 5 years
  ago, and now... a prison
  escapee.)

Fawles:
  ...

Mia:
  (Just relax, Mia! Make small
  talk and try to relax him!)

Mia:
  ...Err, umm...
  So why did you escape anyway?

Fawles:
  Ah. Ah.
  UGGA!

Mia:
  Eeeeek!
  I'm sorry! I'm sorry!

Fawles:
  ...Ugh.
  I din't do nuttin'!
  I din't kill nobody!

Fawles:
  I never... I never lie!
  I din't escape from nowhere!

Mia:
  Err...

Mia:
  But, Mr. Fawles...
  The police just recaptured
  you two days ago.

Fawles:
  ...
  Ugh.
  Sorry. I told a little lie.

Mia:
  (Oh boy...)

Fawles:
  But anyway, I din't do it!
  I never killed nobody!

Mia:
  Umm, sorry for asking but...
  You're on death row, right?

Fawles:
  Uh. Uh...
  UGGA!

Mia:
  Eeeeeek!
  I'm really, really sorry!

Fawles:
  They sentenced me to die
  5 years ago!
  But I was tricked I tell you!

Fawles:
  That woman! She lied in her
  testimony! ...That's why I got
  the death penalty!

Fawles:
  I swear it! I din't kill her!
  I could never do that!

Mia:
  (Two days ago, he escaped
  from the police wagon when
  it crashed...)

Mia:
  (Then about 8 hours later...)

Mia:
  (A policewoman was murdered
  before the police could
  recapture him.)

Mia:
  (The police believe that
  Terry Fawles did it.)

Mia:
  Umm... After you escaped,
  did you meet a policewoman?

Fawles:
  ...

Fawles:
  Yeah... I did.
  ...She's the reason I escaped.

Mia:
  (So that much is true...
  He did meet with the victim.)

Fawles:
  But I din't kill her!

Fawles:
  She was alive when I left!
  She was alive...!
  It-It's true!

Mia:
  (I can trust him... right?
  I mean, I should...)

? ? ?:
  Ha...!

? ? ?:
  You're not going to figure
  out the truth by just staring
  at the guy...

Mia:
  Y-You're... Why are you here?

? ? ?:
  I came to see how our little
  kitten was doing all alone in
  the big, scary lion's den.

? ? ?:
  ...I thought maybe you'd like
  someone to play with.

Mia:
  Err, where is Mr. Grossberg?

? ? ?:
  Ha...!
  That old man is probably
  still in bed.

? ? ?:
  I bet he's clutching an empty
  bottle and mumbling in his
  sleep.

Armando:
  Aren't I good enough?
  After all, it's me...
  Diego Armando!

Mia:
  I-I didn't say...

Mia:
  So, Diego Armando, the finest
  attorney at Grossberg Law
  Offices, is here for me...?

Armando:
  No, no, no...
  You've got it all wrong!
  Today, YOU'RE the finest!

Armando:
  After all, it took an amazing
  amount of guts to take this
  case!

Armando:
  Imagine...
  An escaped death row convict
  for a first client!

Mia:
  Yeah, err... Th-Thanks.
  (I sure wish I could get
  out of it though!)

Armando:
  Ha...!
  Relax.
  I just heard some good news.

Armando:
  The prosecutor for today
  is fresh out of his diapers
  as well.

Mia:
  R-Really!?

Armando:
  However...
  Unlike a certain somebody
  who I won't mention...

Armando:
  ...he's earned the reputation
  as a "genius" since beginning
  his law career.

Mia:
  (G-Genius...?)

Armando:
  Well, it's about time
  to head in, Kitten.

Armando:
  Sharpen those claws of yours.
  It's go time!

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

Mia:
  (A solitary confinement cell
  for the condemned must be
  the world's loneliest place.)

Mia:
  (...And that's what my client
  ran away from.)

Mia:
  (Every other lawyer gave up
  on him... But not me.)

Mia:
  (When I saw those overflowing
  eyes and heard that simple,
  child-like voice...)

Mia:
  (I just had the feeling that
  he was telling the truth.)

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

February 16, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 4

Judge:
  Court is now in session for
  the trial of Terry Fawles.

Mia:
  The defense is ready,
  Your Honor.

? ? ?:
  The prosecution has been
  ready for a while, Your Honor.

Judge:
  I understand the lawyers for
  both sides are newcomers...?

Mia:
  Y-Y-Yes, Your Honor.
  I'm Mia Fey.

Edgeworth:
  Miles Edgeworth... Your Honor.

Judge:
  So you're the new prosecutor
  everyone is talking about, eh?

Judge:
  They say you joined the
  prosecutor's office at quite
  an early age.

Edgeworth:
  At 20... Your Honor.

Armando:
  I guess our little kitten
  hasn't earned herself much
  of a reputation yet, huh?

Mia:
  (Come on, Mia!
  You can't lose! Not to
  someone younger than you!)

Edgeworth:
  ...Hmph.

Judge:
  Young people running a trial.
  I'm not too sure how I feel
  about that.

Judge:
  ...Now then, the defendant in
  this case is currently a
  felon on death row.

Judge:
  Two days ago, he escaped
  from a police wagon.
  Is that correct?

Edgeworth:
  Precisely.

Armando:
  But the defendant is not on
  trial for escaping prison.

Armando:
  On the day that the defendant
  escaped, a policewoman was
  murdered...

Mia:
  So we're here to determine
  if Mr. Fawles was responsible
  for her death...?

Armando:
  You got it, Kitten.

Judge:
  Well then, Mr. Edgeworth.
  Let's hear your opening
  statement.

Edgeworth:
  Yes, Your Honor.
  It was five years ago.

Edgeworth:
  The defendant, Terry Fawles,
  was sentenced to death in this
  very court.

Edgeworth:
  His crimes were kidnapping,
  extortion... and murder.

Edgeworth:
  The girl he threw off the
  bridge was only 14 years old.

Judge:
  A truly horrible crime.
  I remember it well.

Judge:
  There was no decisive
  evidence, so the trial was
  long and protracted.

Edgeworth:
  Correct.
  But in the end, what finally
  decided the case was...

Edgeworth:
  ...a certain witness's
  testimony.

Mia:
  A witness's testimony...

Edgeworth:
  The testimony of Detective
  Valerie Hawthorne; the person
  who confronted this criminal.

Edgeworth:
  She arrested Mr. Fawles at
  the scene and later testified
  against him.

Edgeworth:
  She said she witnessed
  Mr. Fawles throw his young
  victim into the river.

Edgeworth:
  For those who are not aware,
  Eagle River is well-known for
  its powerful current.

Edgeworth:
  Most bodies that fall in
  are never recovered...

Mia:
  (So Ms. Hawthorne's testimony
  was the one that put him
  away...)

Judge:
  That policewoman you
  just mentioned...
  That wouldn't be...?

Edgeworth:
  Exactly. The victim.
  The same woman that was
  killed 2 days ago...

Edgeworth:
  Police Sergeant...
  Valerie Hawthorne.

Judge:
  Aha...! I see...

Judge:
  The man who was sentenced to
  death based on her testimony
  escaped two days ago...

Judge:
  ...with only one thing on his
  mind. To take revenge against
  the woman who convicted him.

Judge:
  ...
  Hmm...

Judge:
  Aha! The truth is becoming
  clear to me now!

Mia:
  Huh?

Judge:
  Yes, yes...

Judge:
  It's quite obvious that the
  defendant is guilty.

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  W-Wait a minute!
  That's not right!

Mia:
  At least hear the case
  before you decide on the
  outcome, Your Honor!

Judge:
  Grrrngh...

Judge:
  Watch yourself, Ms. Fey! I'm
  not sure I care for your word
  choice, or your tone of voice.

Edgeworth:
  Young people these days simply
  don't know how to respect
  their elders.

Mia:
  (Why you...! You're even
  younger than me, you
  hypocrite!)

Judge:
  Now then, Mr. Edgeworth,
  please call your first
  witness.

Edgeworth:
  I call the detective who was
  in charge of the initial
  investigation of this case.

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

Edgeworth:
  Witness...
  State your name and
  occupation.

Gumshoe:
  Gumshoe. Dick Gumshoe.
  I'm the homicide detective
  in charge of the case, sir!

Gumshoe:
  I finally got promoted to
  the detective division half a
  year ago!

Mia:
  I don't believe anyone
  asked you about that.

Gumshoe:
  Hey, ma'am! You got any idea
  how much work it takes...
  ......

Mia:
  Wh-What is it?

Gumshoe:
  You...
  Y-You're really gorgeous...

Mia:
  Excuse me?

Gumshoe:
  No, seriously...
  My heart...
  It's aching for you...

Edgeworth:
  Detective. Pull yourself
  together and try to be
  professional. Otherwise...

Edgeworth:
  I'll write you up on contempt
  so quick that something other
  than your heart will ache!

Gumshoe:
  Urk...
  O-OK, I-I got it!

Judge:
  ...Now, Detective.
  Tell us about the incident.

Gumshoe:
  Yes, sir! Right away!

Gumshoe:
  The victim was Sergeant
  Valerie Hawthorne, a veteran
  on the police force.

Gumshoe:
  She was stabbed in the back
  with a knife and died from
  excessive blood loss.

Judge:
  That much is already stated
  in the autopsy report.

Judge:
  The court would like to hear
  more details about the
  incident itself.

Gumshoe:
  Yes, sir! I gotcha!
  OK! Let's take a look at this
  aerial map of the area here!

Gumshoe:
  This is a sketch of
  Dusky Bridge, an old
  suspension bridge.

Gumshoe:
  And the river that runs under
  there is Eagle River.

Gumshoe:
  The victim and the defendant
  met there...
  On top of the bridge.

Gumshoe:
  After stabbing her in the
  back, the killer carried
  the victim back to his car.

Gumshoe:
  He was recaptured at a police
  checkpoint as he was trying to
  make his getaway, sir.

Judge:
  Hmm... I see...

*Dusky Bridge Map added
to the Court Record.*

Judge:
  Was the victim's blood
  found on the bridge?

Gumshoe:
  The victim, Sergeant Valerie
  Hawthorne, was wearing a
  thick coat, sir.

Gumshoe:
  Unfortunately, no traces of
  blood were found on the
  bridge.

Judge:
  Hmm...

Judge:
  Mr. Edgeworth. I warn you
  that I absolutely despise
  conjecture.

Judge:
  If there was no blood on the
  bridge, then you have no proof
  that they even met there!

Edgeworth:
  Your Honor.

Edgeworth:
  If you would listen to the
  testimony we have prepared,
  I'm sure you'll be convinced.

Edgeworth:
  The two of them most
  certainly did meet on the
  bridge that day...

Judge:
  Why, Mr. Edgeworth...

Judge:
  I'm not sure I like you
  wagging your finger at me as
  though I were some hoser!

Judge:
  Detective, proceed
  with your testimony!

Gumshoe:
  Um... Yes, sir!

Mia:
  (Here we go, Mia! Hang on...!)

Armando:
  OK now...
  Listen carefully, Kitten.

Armando:
  One little mistake and this
  guy will drink you for morning
  tea! Trust me and get ready.

  your claws out, and show them
  what you've got... Kitten.

Mia:
  (It's OK, Mia. Stay calm...)

Mia:
  (Just remember those court
  procedure videos you stayed
  up all last night watching!)

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Summary of the Incident --

(1)
Gumshoe:
  On the day of the incident,
  an unknown person phoned the
  sergeant and asked to meet.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       This "unknown person"...
       You have no idea who it
       might be, right?

     Gumshoe:
       Sorry, but I'm afraid I do!

     Mia:
       What...?

     Gumshoe:
       The one who called
       Sergeant Hawthorne was the
       defendant, Terry Fawles!

     Judge:
       Wh-Wh-Whaaat!
       The defendant...!
       The defendant called her!?

     Gumshoe:
       Sergeant Hawthorne was a very
       thorough person, sir!

     Gumshoe:
       She left a note about her
       phone call with Mr. Fawles.

     Mia:
       A note...?

     Gumshoe:
       Yeah, a top-secret memo
       that she left on her desk.

     *Victim's Note added to
     the Court Record.*

     Judge:
       Hmm...

     Judge:
       According to this note, it
       seems the one who called her
       to the bridge was indeed...

     Judge:
       ...the defendant,
       Terry Fawles!

     Mia:
       Nngh!
       (Whose bright idea was it to
       keep that note from me!?)

     Armando:
       Ha...!
       Looks like the judge is even
       more sure of his verdict now.

     Armando:
       Listen up!
       Never ask a question if you
       don't already know the answer!

     Mia:
       (It's that detective's fault!
       He's the one that said,
       "unknown person"...!)

     Gumshoe:
       Hey now!
       Don't make that face at me!

     Gumshoe:
       I just said it that way 'cause
       the prosecutor told me to!

     Mia:
       (Was that... a trap...?)

     Mia:
       (...With that cute face,
       I didn't expect him to
       be so sneaky.)

     Edgeworth:
       Hmph.

(2)
Gumshoe:
  Sergeant Hawthorne went to
  Dusky Bridge at the designaed
  time and met with Mr. Fawles.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       A bridge up in the mountains?
       But why meet there?

     Gumshoe:
       Because it is a very important
       place to the defendant,
       that's why.

     Judge:
       What do you mean by that?

     Edgeworth:
       If you remember, 5 years ago,
       the defendant kidnapped
       a young girl.

     Edgeworth:
       He was chased onto a bridge...
       And it was there that he
       killed his hostage.

     Edgeworth:
       And the place where all of
       this occurred is, of course,
       Dusky Bridge.

     Mia:
       ...!

     Gumshoe:
       The very place where
       Sergeant Hawthorne arrested
       and handcuffed Mr. Fawles.

     Armando:
       Ha...!
       Returning to the scene of the
       crime... How nostalgic.

(3)
Gumshoe:
  And that's where she was
  brutally murdered, sir.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Was the body of the victim
       discovered right away?

     Gumshoe:
       Yeah.
       We were really on the ball.

     Gumshoe:
       We found the criminal within
       one hour of the murder.

     Gumshoe:
       It was great! We even got to
       say, "Don't move! We've got
       you surrounded!"

     Mia:
       (...Wait a second.
       Isn't there something weird
       about that...?)

     Armando:
       The location was a suspension
       bridge, up in the mountains.

     Armando:
       So how did they find out
       about the crime so quickly...?

     Mia:
       Sergeant Hawthorne must have
       mentioned the phone call to
       someone else, right?

     Armando;
       Ha...!

     Armando:
       If that's what had happened,
       then she wouldn't have been
       killed.

     Gumshoe:
       She never mentioned the
       phone call from Mr. Fawles.
       But...

     Gumshoe:
       She left a note on her
       desk about it.

     Gumshoe:
       If only I had noticed it
       earlier...
       Maybe she'd still be alive.

     Mia:
       (I wonder why she didn't
       mention the phone call to
       anyone...?)

(4)
Gumshoe:
  The criminal stuffed her body
  into his car trunk and tried
  to make a getaway.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Mr. Fawles had a car, then?

     Gumshoe:
       Well, that bridge is way up
       in the mountains, ma'am.

     Gumshoe:
       The defendant and the victim
       both went up there by car.
       I mean, how else, right?

     Judge:
       What! You mean the
       defendant drove his own car?

     Gumshoe:
       No, no, of course not.
       ...It was stolen.

     Gumshoe:
       He stole it from a
       young couple that had been
       waiting at a red light.

     Judge:
       Hmm... Car thieves...
       I'm not sure how I feel
       about car thieves.

     Mia:
       (Is this guy sure about how
       he feels about ANYTHING?)

     Gumshoe:
       This is a photo of the stolen
       car's trunk.

     Gumshoe:
       ...Naturally, that's the body
       of Valerie Hawthorne in there.

     Judge:
       Whoa! That...
       That doesn't look too
       comfortable...

     *Crime Photo added to
     the Court Record.*

     Mia:
       The victim...
       She was stabbed in the back,
       correct?

     Gumshoe:
       Yeah.

     Armando:
       Ha...!

     Armando:
       ...For some reason, men
       always seem to get stabbed
       in the back...

     Mia:
       (We're talking about a
       woman here...)

     Gumshoe:
       You can't tell from this
       photo, but...

     Gumshoe:
       ...the knife was stuck in her
       back nice and firm.

     Judge:
       The condition of the body
       when it was discovered is
       very important information.

     Judge:
       Detective, was there anything
       strange or noteworthy in the
       trunk of the car?

     ADD STATEMENT (4b)

(4b)
Gumshoe:
  Here's a photo of the trunk.
  But I don't see anything
  strange, do you? Anyway...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       What did the defendant
       have to say about this photo?

     Gumshoe:
       What he always says, ma'am!

     Fawles:
       I din't do it!
       I din't do nuttin'!!

     Gumshoe:
       ...That's all he says.

     Judge:
       "Nuttin'"? I wouldn't say
       he did "nuttin'". At the very
       least, we know he stole a car!

     Gumshoe:
       It's just what he always says,
       Your Honor.
       And then he always says...

     Fawles:
       ...
       Uh.
       Sorry. I told a little lie.

     Gumshoe:
       ...Or something like that.

     Mia:
       ...

     Judge:
       Well, in any case, it seems
       he was caught and arrested.

     Edgeworth:
       Precisely.

(5)
Gumshoe:
  Mr. Fawles was arrested at a
  police checkpoint we set up
  at the base of the mountain.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       That certainly is some
       impressive police work.

     Gumshoe:
       Well, no, actually it was
       way too close for comfort.

     Gumshoe:
       We set up that checkpoint
       just after 5:00 PM...

     Gumshoe:
       We figured that Mr. Fawles
       might just try to run.

     Mia:
       ...What do you mean it was
       too close for comfort?

     Edgeworth:
       The two of them arranged
       to meet at 4:30 PM.

     Edgeworth:
       And it takes approximately 30
       minutes to go from the bridge
       to the checkpoint.

     Mia:
       (Hmm... That WAS kinda close.
       Any later and Mr. Fawles could
       have slipped right by.)

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

Armando:
  Listen up, Kitten.
  There's a big trap waiting for
  you in that testimony.

Mia:
  A t-trap?

Armando:
  Walk into it carelessly, and
  it'll leave more than just
  a flesh wound. Fun, huh?

Mia:
  No, it's NOT!

Armando:
  Well, if you want to have any
  chance at all, you'd better
  get some more information.

Armando:
  And if you're going to get
  caught in a trap, it's best to
  get caught early.


Armando:
  You can always look for
  contradictions afterwards.

Mia:
  (The ever-famous
  "contradictions". I sure hope
  I can find some of those...)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  ...Witness!

Mia:
  ............

Gumshoe:
  ............

Edgeworth:
  ............

Judge:
  ............

Judge:
  Wh-What is it...?
  Do you have something
  to say, Ms. Fey!?

Mia:
  I-I'm sorry!
  I-I totally forgot what I was
  going to say...

Mia:
  This is... This is the first
  time I've ever had to actually
  address someone like that...

Judge:
  Grrgh...
  You should have practiced
  before coming to court!

Judge:
  Honestly, Ms. Fey...
  I'm not sure I like this!

Armando:
  Hmph...!
  Say there, little Kitten, want
  a piece of my coffee candy?

Mia:
  Candy?

Armando:
  Well, you're still too young
  to be drinking real coffee.

Mia:
  (Grrr... Come on, Mia!
  Shake it off!
  You're a lawyer!)

Mia:
  Detective!

Gumshoe:
  Y-Yes, ma'am!

Mia:
  This photo...

Mia:
  You said that there was
  nothing peculiar about it.
  ...Is that correct?

Gumshoe:
  Y-Yeah, that's what I said!

Mia:
  Well then, I suggest you take
  another look at the note
  written by the victim!

Gumshoe:
  The n-n-note...?

Mia:
  It very clearly says,
  "Wear white scarf for
  identification."...

Mia:
  The caller must have forgotten
  what the victim looked like.
  Thus, this special request.

Gumshoe:
  Aaah... I, umm...!

Mia:
  I have one very simple
  question for you, Detective.
  Where is the white scarf?

Mia:
  I can't seem to find it in
  this photo...

Gumshoe:
  Um... Well, to be honest,
  we didn't find it in the
  trunk, ma'am...

Mia:
  And you stopped there!?
  You should have looked for it!

Gumshoe:
  Aaaaaaarrrggg...!

Judge:
  The caller told her to wear it
  to identify herself, so I'd
  expect she did just that!

Judge:
  Well, Mr. Edgeworth!?
  What do you have to say
  about this!?

Edgeworth:
  *sigh*

Edgeworth:
  I see the defense is a
  little... lacking.

Mia:
  ...!

Edgeworth:
  The scarf you are searching
  so desperately for...
  ...Is it this one, perchance?

Mia:
  ...Ah!

Gumshoe:
  Wh-Where did you find that,
  sir!?

Edgeworth:
  On Dusky Bridge. I was there
  first, and decided to conduct
  my own investigation.

Gumshoe:
  Wh-Why...?
  Why didn't you tell me?

Edgeworth:
  I made a decision to keep
  all pieces of evidence in my
  personal satchel.

Edgeworth:
  It's the safest place I know.

Armando:
  Hmph!
  That hot-shot sure has a flair
  for the dramatic...

Edgeworth:
  It's not exactly "white", as
  the caller requested...

Edgeworth:
  But as you can see, it's
  close enough, for what it
  was intended for.

Judge:
  Hmmm...
  It looks like it spent some
  time in the mud.

Edgeworth:
  Not surprising...
  It was drizzling on the
  mountain that day.

Mia:
  (Prosecutor Edgeworth...
  He was intentionally hiding
  that scarf the whole time!)

Judge:
  The court will accept the
  scarf into evidence.

*Scarf added to the
Court Record.*

Edgeworth:
  Now, if the attorney for the
  defense is finished
  embarrassing herself...

Edgeworth:
  ...I'd like to move on with
  the testimony. That IS alright
  with you, isn't it, Ms. Fey?

Mia:
  (Boy would I like to wrap this
  scarf around his smarmy little
  neck...)

Edgeworth:
  Very good. Now, if we're done
  with this mud-covered scarf
  business...

Edgeworth:
  ...the prosecution moves to
  establish conclusively, and
  with hard evidence that...

Edgeworth:
  ...Ms. Hawthorne and
  Mr. Fawles did indeed meet
  on that bridge that day.

Edgeworth:
  Further, we will show exactly
  what occurred there.

Judge:
  That sounds quite promising.
  I can't wait to hear all
  about it.

Mia:
  (Argh... Everything is moving
  at his whim...)

Armando:
  Don't forget, Kitten.
  There's a reason why everyone
  considers this kid a genius.

Mia:
  (A genius, huh...)

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Events on Dusky Bridge --

(1)
Gumshoe:
  Actually, there's an
  eyewitness who was there
  when the incident took place.

(2)
Gumshoe:
  This photo was accidentally
  taken by the witness. It shows
  her wearing the scarf, sir.

(3)
Gumshoe:
  It was drizzling that day;
  unfortunately, it's a little
  hard to see what's going on.

(4)
Gumshoe:
  Anyway, the criminal shoved
  the victim down from behind
  and stabbed her in the back!

(5)
Gumshoe:
  ...That must have been
  when the scarf fell off.

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

Judge:
  Hmm.
  Looking at this photo...

Judge:
  ...you really get the sense
  that this bridge is very high
  up.

Edgeworth:
  It is about a 40 feet drop
  from the bridge to the Eagle
  River down below.

Judge:
  Mr. Edgeworth, who took this
  photo anyway?

Edgeworth:
  Let's just say that it was a
  well-intentioned third party.

Judge:
  Aha! A potential witness!
  So why isn't this person
  in the courtroom?

Gumshoe:
  Well... They said they
  absolutely did not want
  to testify.

Edgeworth:
  ...The person in question is
  very delicate, Your Honor.

Edgeworth:
  Besides, as long as we have
  this photo, we see no reason
  to compel her to testify.

Judge:
  ...
  I'm not sure how I feel
  about that!

*Witness's Photo added
to the Court Record.*

Edgeworth:
  So, as you can see,
  Terry Fawles had both the
  motive and the opportunity.

Edgeworth:
  I think it's quite clear at
  this point what happened on
  that bridge.

Judge:
  ...
  Hmm.

Judge:
  Aha! The truth is becoming
  clear to me now!

Mia:
  Huh?

Judge:
  Yes, it's quite obvious.
  He's clearly guilty.

Mia:
  N-Not again!
  That's not fair!

Mia:
  I haven't even done my
  cross-examination yet!

Judge:
  Hmm...

Mia:
  (What do you mean, "Hmm"!?)

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Events on Dusky Bridge --

(1)
Gumshoe:
  Actually, there's an
  eyewitness who was there
  when the incident took place.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Who is this eyewitness?

     Gumshoe:
       She's a college student!

     Mia:
       A female college student...?

     Gumshoe:
       That's right!
       Meaning she's "female" AND
       a "college student", ma'am!

     Gumshoe:
       She doesn't do well in
       front of other people, so I
       came to testify for her.

     Mia:
       Maybe so! But as the attorney
       for the defense, I have the
       right to cross-examine her...

     Edgeworth:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Edgeworth:
       For the time being, we're not
       relying on the witness's
       statements... That is all.

     Mia:
       Wh-What is that supposed
       to mean!?

     Edgeworth:
       ...The prosecution has other,
       more decisive evidence.

     Edgeworth:
       Our case doesn't rest on the
       vague testimony of a
       female college student.

     Judge:
       A female college student, eh.

     Gumshoe:
       It means she's "female" AND
       a "college student", sir!

     Edgeworth:
       If you absolutely must hear
       her testimony, you'll have to
       give us a good reason why.

     Mia:
       Grrr...

     Judge:
       Please tell us about the
       more decisive evidence in
       question.

(2)
Gumshoe:
  This photo was accidentally
  taken by the witness. It shows
  her wearing the scarf, sir.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       (The victim is wearing a
       scarf in that photo alright.) 

     Mia:
       So, about the witness who
       took this photo...

     Mia:
       What was this person doing
       all the way in the mountains?

     Gumshoe:
       She was taking photos of
       wild flowers apparently.

     Edgeworth:
       There are many unusual types
       of flora on that mountain,
       Ms. Fey.

     Edgeworth:
       People in the area say
       it's because of the spirits
       that live there.

     Judge:
       S-S-Spirits!
       Now that you mention it,
       th-this photo...

     Judge:
       This cloudy fog-like thing...
       Is-Is it a ghost!?
       I-I don't believe it!

     Gumshoe:
       No, Your Honor, no...
       I don't think it's a ghost.

(3)
Gumshoe:
  It was drizzling that day;
  unfortunately, it's a little
  hard to see what's going on.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Drizzling, huh?

     Gumshoe:
       That's right. There was a
       light rain coming down.
       The whole place was dreary...

     Gumshoe:
       ...But not as dreary as the
       mood that's in this court
       room right now. Ha ha.

     Mia:
       ...

     Edgeworth:
       ...

     Judge:
       ...

     Gumshoe:
       ...Looks like a cold front
       just moved in.

     Edgeworth:
       In any case...

     Edgeworth:
       The point is that the area
       was quite damp.
       There was even some fog.

     Gumshoe:
       I even slipped and fell while
       I was on the bridge.
       It was really something.

(4)
Gumshoe:
  Anyway, the criminal shoved
  the victim down from behind
  and stabbed her in the back!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Is that part of the witness's
       testimony as well?

     Gumshoe:
       Of course it is.

     Gumshoe:
       He pushed the victim hard in
       the back and she fell down
       right on her stomach!

     Judge:
       Hmm...

     Judge:
       ...I remember that happening
       once myself.
       It was really broodle.

     Mia:
       ...

     Mia:
       (Are you talking about seeing
       someone get pushed, or were
       you the one getting pushed?)

     Mia:
       (Or does it mean that you
       pushed someone down like
       that once...?)

     Mia:
       (With his mind-boggling tales
       and the way he said, "brutal",
       I wonder if he's Canadian...)

     Armando:
       Ha...!

     Armando:
       Save your nasty look for
       the right person.

     Mia:
       Huh...?

     Armando:
       ...Take a look.

     Armando:
       Poor baby... The Court Record
       seems to have wet itself.

     Mia:
       Hey! Watch where you
       spill your coffee!

     Mia:
       (The Court Record, huh...)

(5)
Gumshoe:
  ...That must have been
  when the scarf fell off.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So in other words, there was
       a struggle between the
       criminal and the victim, huh?

     Gumshoe:
       That's what the witness said.

     Gumshoe:
       Well.
       It looks like she didn't
       remember about the scarf.

     Gumshoe:
       But from what she said,
       it sounded like a pretty
       violent fight, ma'am.

     Mia:
       (The area was wet from rain.
       The bridge was probably wet,
       too.)

     Mia:
       (Which would explain why the
       scarf was all covered in
       mud, but...)

     Mia:
       (There's something about
       this testimony that's still
       bothering me...)

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

Armando:
  Heh, talk about a surprise.
  I had no idea there was
  a photo.

Mia:
  S-So what do I do... ?

Armando:
  You really still believe him?
  Mr. Crybaby, I mean?

Mia:
  Of course I do!

Armando:
  Hmph...!
  So the little kitten believes
  in fairy tales, huh...

Armando:
  In that case, the answer
  is obvious.

Armando:
  If what you believe is
  the truth...

Armando:
  ...then that means that
  somewhere, hidden in that
  testimony, is a contradiction.

Armando:
  One huge contradiction
  waiting to be discovered.
  ...That's your chance.

*Present Crime Photo* at (4)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  So at the time of the crime,
  there was a light drizzle
  coming down, correct?

Gumshoe:
  Yeah, and fog, too.
  Just a generally soggy
  atmosphere.

Mia:
  Well, I have evidence
  that doesn't go with
  the soggy atmosphere.

Judge:
  But this is a photo of the
  victim's body that was found
  in the car trunk.

Mia:
  Considering the conditions
  at the scene of the crime,
  something isn't right.

Edgeworth:
  ...

Judge:
  Well by all means...
  Please enlighten us as to
  what isn't right!

Judge:
  What is it about this photo of
  the trunk that doesn't fit
  with the conditions that day?

x
x Mia:

x

*Present victim's coat*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  Naturally the answer is...
  right here!

Judge:
  The victim's... coat?

Judge:
  As far as I can see, there
  is nothing strange about it.

Mia:
  That's exactly what's strange!

Mia:
  Remember the testimony!
  What were the conditions
  on the bridge that day?

Mia:
  It was drizzling and foggy.
  Dusky Bridge was all wet.

Mia:
  If the victim really had
  fallen down on her stomach
  on top of the bridge...

Mia:
  ...then the front of her coat
  should have been covered
  in mud!

Gumshoe:
  Urk...!

Edgeworth:
  ...!

Judge:
  That...
  That's exactly right!

Judge:
  The other day I fell on a
  muddy street and my gorgeous
  playoff beard was befouled!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  ...I do admit that the
  crime scene was quite wet
  that day.

Edgeworth:
  However! That doesn't mean
  that the top of the bridge
  itself was muddy!

Edgeworth:
  If Your Honor had fallen in
  the shower instead of on a
  muddy street...

Edgeworth:
  ...his glorious hockey beard,
  pride of the Legal League,
  would be wet, but not muddy!

Judge:
  Fortunately, I have yet to
  test that. Still, your point
  is well-taken.

Edgeworth:
  Can you prove that the
  surface of the bridge
  was muddy that day?

Mia:
  (The surface of the bridge,
  huh...)

Armando:
  Ha...!
  A real man wouldn't
  stand for a taunt like this!

Mia:
  (Neither would a real woman!)

Mia:
  Of course I can!

Edgeworth:
  ...!

Mia:
  Here is the evidence that
  proves the surface of the
  bridge was muddy!

*Present Scarf*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  The evidence is...
  this scarf!

Judge:
  Ah...!

Mia:
  It should be obvious...

Mia:
  If the scarf fell onto the
  bridge and got this muddy...

Mia:
  It means that the bridge
  was obviously covered in mud!

Edgeworth:
  Urrrnngh...!
  No... I can't be outwitted by
  this novice bimbo...!

Mia:
  (Hey! Same to you, buddy!)

Judge:
  Ms. Fey's assertion makes
  perfect sense to me...

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  I do admit that there
  appears to be a
  contradiction between...

Edgeworth:
  ...the condition of the
  victim's coat and her
  scarf.

Edgeworth:
  However!
  The real question is... why is
  there a contradiction?

Mia:
  Huh?

Edgeworth:
  For every contradiction,
  there exists an explanation.

Edgeworth:
  Let's look at what the
  explanation in this case
  may be, shall we?

Mia:
  A-Alright...!
  (It's not like he's really
  giving me a choice here...)

Armando:
  Ha...!

Armando:
  You're doing pretty good.
  ...For a little kitten.

Mia:
  M-Mr. Armando!

Armando:
  No matter what he says, a
  contradiction always comes
  down to a lie.

Armando:
  It's either the victim
  discovered in the trunk...

Armando:
  ...the witness's photo showing
  the defendant and the
  victim...

Armando:
  ...or the witness's testimony
  that stated she saw the
  moment of the murder.

Armando:
  Just relax and think it over.
  It's pretty simple, isn't it?

Armando:
  The false evidence...
  It's one of those three.

Judge:
  Hmph! What you said just now!
  I'm not sure I like that!

Mia:
  Th-That wasn't me, Your Honor!
  It was the coffee aficionado
  over here that said it!

Judge:
  This court is not in the
  habit of accepting false
  evidence, you know!

Armando:
  Blame it on him, Your Honor.
  He's the one trying to slip
  false evidence into the court.

Mia:
  ...!

Armando:
  But we won't let him!
  We'll expose his evidence as
  the flimsy scam it really is!

Mia:
  Y-Yes!

Mia:
  The false evidence in
  this case is the...

*** witness's photo. ***********************
*
* Mia:
*   About the photo that the
*   prosecution claims was taken
*   by a witness...
*
* Mia:
*   It certainly seems to show
*   a man in a prison uniform
*   and a woman in a coat.
*
* Mia:
*   However! We can't tell any
*   more than that from the photo!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   *OBJECTION!*
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Are you saying the people in
*   the photo may not be the
*   victim and the defendant?
*
* Mia:
*   W-Well, that's certainly
*   a possibility!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   So perhaps it was another
*   prisoner and policewoman?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I admit, people have their
*   quirks. Perhaps they were part
*   of a role-playing group?
*
* Mia:
*   W-Well, I suppose that's
*   also p-possible... I guess...
*
* Armando:
*   You messed up again... Kitten.
*
* Mia:
*   M-Mr. Armando!
*
* Armando:
*   There should be something
*   else that's even more
*   suspicious.
*
* Armando:
*   Now think the whole thing

*
* Judge:
*   From this point on, Ms. Fey,
*   I will penalize you for making

*   If the victim really did try

* Mia:

*
* Mia:
*   Therefore! The body that

*
* Mia:
*   It was NOT the body of

*
* Judge:
*   Wh-What do you have to

*
* Edgeworth:
*   *sigh*
*   Objection.
*
* Judge:
*   Hmm...
*   Not only a whisper, but he
*   mixed in a sigh, too.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Valerie Hawthorne was more

* Edgeworth:

Mia:
  It is a no-brainer.
  Obviously it's the witness
  that's suspicious!

Mia:
  During his earlier testimony,
  the detective pointed out
  a crucial fact.

Mia:
  "The criminal shoved the
  victim down from behind
  and stabbed her in the back."

Mia:
  Now, is that testimony
  exactly what the witness
  claims to have seen?

Gumshoe:
  Yeah.
  ...That's what the witness
  told us.

Mia:
  That testimony...
  is filled with holes.

Mia:
  After all, the victim's coat
  isn't dirty at all.

Judge:
  Hmm... That's true.

Armando:
  Ha...!
  It's not just true.
  It's the truth.

Armando:
  If there was a truly decisive
  witness in this case...

Armando:
  ...I'm certain that boy wonder
  over there would have called
  them in the first place!

Mia:
  ...Your Honor!

Mia:
  The defense requests
  to cross-examine the
  eyewitness!

Mia:
  The testimony presented so
  far is not only vague, but
  contradictory as well!

Judge:
  Well, Mr. Edgeworth?

Judge:
  It appears that we'll need
  to hear from your mystery
  witness after all.

Edgeworth:
  ...
  *sigh*
  You should brace yourself.

Edgeworth:
  ...For the brutal truth.

Mia:
  ...?

Edgeworth:
  Your Honor, the prosecution
  has no intention of hiding the
  witness from the court.

Edgeworth:
  We are prepared to present
  our witness at any time.

Judge:
  Very well...
  Please bring forth your
  witness at this time.

Mia:
  (What Mr. Edgeworth said...
  kind of worries me...)

Mia:
  (What does he mean by
  "the brutal truth"?)

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

Judge:
  Now, let's proceed with the
  testimony.

Judge:
  Mr. Edgeworth.
  Please go right ahead.

Edgeworth:
  Thank you, Your Honor.
  The prosecution summons...

Edgeworth:
  ...the woman who saw the
  events that day with her
  very own eyes.

Mia:
  (This is it, Mia! The battle
  begins here!)

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

Edgeworth:
  ...Witness.
  What is your name and
  occupation?

Edgeworth:
  ...

Judge:
  ...

Mia:
  (Everyone is so silent that
  I can hear their hearts going
  pitter-patter...)

Judge:
  Hmm... Ohh...

Judge:
  When I look at you...
  How can I put it...?

Judge:
  You look as scrumptous as a
  double-double and a dozen
  doughnut holes...

Judge:
  I feel like I want to hurry
  up and hand down a verdict
  just to have a bite...

Mia:
  (Hey, hey! Not so fast!)

Edgeworth:
  ...*sigh*
  As I said before...

Edgeworth:
  This witness is very
  sensitive and delicate.

Edgeworth:
  I would ask the court to
  please exercise care when
  addressing her.

Judge:
  Yes, indeed...
  Thank you, Mr. Edgeworth.
  You are a true gentleman.

Judge:
  Ms. Fey!
  You could learn a lot from
  this man!

Mia:
  (...If he's such a gentleman,
  he sure doesn't act like one
  to me.)

? ? ?:
  Umm... Sir?

Judge:
  Hmmm...
  Eh? Yes, my dear?

? ? ?:
  This is my first time,
  so I'm sure I'll make a
  lot of mistakes.

? ? ?:
  Anyway... I just wanted to
  say I'm sorry for all the
  trouble I might cause...

Judge:
  Hmmmmm...
  Not at all! It's no trouble
  at all!

Mia:
  Now then...
  May we please have your
  name and occupation?

Melissa:
  My name is, umm...
  ...Melissa Foster.

Melissa:
  I'm a college student...
  A-A freshman in the
  literature department.

Edgeworth:
  You were on the scene
  when the unfortunate event
  occurred, correct?

Mia:
  ...And you were the one
  who took this photo?
  Is that accurate?

Melissa:
  Waaaaaah!
  H-How can you be so mean...?

Judge:
  Now see here! What are you
  doing shoving that in her face
  like that!?

Mia:
  Huh? B-But it's just a
  photograph! It's not like
  it's something dangerous!

Judge:
  Next time I'll be forced
  to penalize you!

Mia:
  (Uh oh... I don't like the
  turn this has taken...)

Melissa:
  ...

Mia:
  ...?
  (Is she... staring at me?)

Melissa:
  Umm...
  And you would be...?

Mia:
  Huh?
  I-I'm the defense lawyer.
  ...My name is Mia Fey.

Melissa:
  ...

Melissa:
  ...I see.
  So you are...

Judge:
  Now then, young lady.
  Could you please give us
  your testimony?

Melissa:
  Yes, Your Honor...
  I-I'll do my best.

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Witness's Photograph --

(1)
Melissa:
  I... I was using my camera to
  take some pictures of wild
  flowers.

(2)
Melissa:
  Then, I noticed there were
  two people standing up on
  the suspension bridge.

(3)
Melissa:
  Suddenly, they just
  started fighting!

(4)
Melissa:
  That's when I hurried
  and took the photo that
  shows the crucial moment.

(5)
Melissa:
  And right after that,
  I called the police.

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

Judge:
  Hmm...

Judge:
  By the way, where were
  you standing when the
  incident occurred...?

Edgeworth:
  I believe the map would
  be of help here.

Melissa:
  Umm... I was standing right
  over... here.

Melissa:
  I was standing in a
  beautiful field, surrounded
  by tall cliffs.

Judge:
  So you took the photo
  from that location, eh.

Melissa:
  I brought the camera I was
  using at the time, just like
  Mr. Edgeworth asked me to.

Judge:
  Ho ho ho.
  What a cute camera...
  Just like its owner.

*Camera added to the
Court Record.*

Judge:
  ...Alright then, Ms. Fey.
  Time for your cross-
  examination.

Judge:
  But I warn you, make the
  witness cry again, and you'll
  feel the wrath of my gavel.

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Witness's Photograph --

(1)
Melissa:
  I... I was using my camera to
  take some pictures of wild
  flowers.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Did you say... "wild flowers"?

     Melissa:
       Yes, the mountain is
       famous for its beautiful
       spring wild flowers.

     Mia:
       Umm... But it's only February.

     Melissa:
       Well, I... I couldn't wait
       for Spring to come.

     Judge:
       Ho ho...
       I know just how you feel!

     Judge:
       It's just like when I first
       started growing this glorious
       beard of mine...

     Judge:
       I just couldn't wait, so I
       wore a dyed blonde Santa beard
       until mine grew in properly.

     Edgeworth:
       ...Would you mind if we got
       back to the facts of the
       case, Your Honor?

(2)
Melissa:
  Then, I noticed there were
  two people standing up on
  the suspension bridge.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Was there anything strange
       about the two of them?

     Melissa:
       I... I'm a bad girl.
       ...I know I am.

     Melissa:
       It looked like they were
       having a really serious
       conversation up there...

     Melissa:
       ...So I decided to watch them.
       Like some kind of Peeping Tom.

     Judge:
       No, not at all!
       Everyone is like that!

     Judge:
       I love watching other
       people fight, too. In fact,
       I can't get enough of it!

     Judge:
       ...Actually, that's why I
       took this job in the first
       place.

     Mia:
       (Too much info, Your Honor!)

     Edgeworth:
       ...In any case, it's perfectly
       natural for you to have
       kept watching them.

     Edgeworth:
       Especially dressed as they
       were...

     Melissa:
       Well, anyway... I was
       watching them very closely.

(3)
Melissa:
  Suddenly, they just
  started fighting!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Do you have any idea what
       they were fighting about?

     Melissa:
       Eh? No... I have no idea.
       Why do you ask that?

     Mia:
       Oh, I just thought that
       maybe you overheard
       what they said...

     Melissa:
       ...

     Mia:
       ...!

     Melissa:
       I would never...
       I would never eavesdrop...

     Melissa:
       I've got more class than that!

     Judge:
       That's right, Ms. Fey!
       Don't drag the witness down
       to your level!

     Mia:
       (Grrrr...!)

(4)
Melissa:
  That's when I hurried
  and took the photo that
  shows the crucial moment.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Why did you take a photo?

     Melissa:
       Well, the two of them were
       really going at it...

     Melissa:
       Ever since I was a little
       girl, I always wanted to be
       a news reporter...

     Melissa:
       I guess that part of me
       just kind of took over...

     Mia:
       (Smells like a lie to me...)

     Judge:
       Yes, I understand completely!

     Judge:
       Even now, I can't completely
       abandon my boyhood dreams...

     Judge:
       I still use my grandson to
       test my comedy routines on!

     Mia:
       (So he wanted to be a
       comedian, huh. ...Not that it
       has any bearing on this.)

     Melissa:
       All I could do was to
       use my camera.

     Melissa:
       So I took the photo of
       the crucial moment and
       gave it to the police.

(4b)
Melissa:
  The victim turned around
  and tried to run away, but...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       The victim...
       Why do you think she tried
       to run away?

     Melissa:
       Umm...

     Mia:
       With her police training, she
       certainly knew better than to
       turn her back on a criminal...

     Edgeworth:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Edgeworth:
       This was a large, powerful
       man with a knife.

     Edgeworth:
       If it had been a quaggy woman
       like you, I'm sure she would
       have acted differently.

     Mia:
       ("Quaggy"!? Why you...!)

     Judge:
       If it had been me, I probably
       would have jumped into the
       river!

     Mia:
       (There's still something
       wrong with this testimony...)

(5)
Melissa:
  And right after that,
  I called the police.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You called the police?

     Melissa:
       Yes. Because it looked to me
       like the murderer was going to
       try to escape.

     Edgeworth:
       ...We were already moving
       before the call even came in.

     Edgeworth:
       Thanks to the victim's note,
       we had already started our
       operation.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       That was certainly tough
       luck for the criminal, eh.

(5b)
Melissa:
  She only got about 10 yards
  before she was stabbed
  in the back.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So you're saying
       Sergeant Hawthorne wasn't
       able to get away from him...?

     Melissa:
       Well, it's a narrow bridge
       and it was swaying back
       and forth...

     Melissa:
       If you ask me, both of them
       were in danger of falling off.

     Melissa:
       I only wish I could have
       done something to help her...

     Judge:
       Hmmmm...
       That seems to make sense.

     Mia:
       I wonder about that...
       Something seems kind
       of off...

     Armando:
       Ha...!
       You have a good sixth sense.

     Armando:
       When you feel that something's
       off, that's when you need to
       figure out why...
 
--------------------------------------------

Mia:
  (If Terry Fawles isn't
  the criminal...)

Mia:
  (Then there must be
  something strange in that
  girl's testimony!)

Armando:
  Be careful, Kitten.

Armando:
  That girl has the judge
  wrapped right around her
  little finger.

Armando:
  You're going to have a tough
  time poking holes in that
  testimony of hers.

Mia:
  (You're going to have to
  come up with something
  really good, Mia!)

*Present Witness's Photo* at (4)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  ...Witness.

Mia:
  When you said you took a
  photo of the crucial moment, 
  is this what you meant?

Melissa:
  Err...

Mia:
  All I can see in this photo
  are two people facing
  each other.

Mia:
  You testified that you saw
  the two of them starting to
  fight.

Mia:
  Normally that's the kind of
  thing we would refer to as
  a crucial moment!

Mia:
  Why haven't you presented
  a photo like that!?

Melissa:
  ...W-Well, you see...

Edgeworth:
  ...The photo we presented
  was the only one there was.

Mia:
  But if you really wanted to
  capture the crucial moment...

Mia:
  ...then what happened next?
  You must have taken a photo
  of it!

Judge:
  Hm...
  Hmmmmm... Doh!

Judge:
  Err... Umm...
  My apologies, young lady...

Judge:
  But Ms. Fey's assertion
  is not without a certain
  amount of merit...

Mia:
  (He can certainly downplay
  a situation, can't he...)

Melissa:
  ...I-I'm sorry...
  ...I'm a very bad girl.

Melissa:
  I umm...
  I used it all up...
  The film, I mean.

Judge:
  You ran out of film!?

Melissa:
  Err, this photo was the
  last one.

Mia:
  What!?

Edgeworth:
  Unfortunately, that is the
  truth.

Edgeworth:
  ...I personally examined all
  of the photographs she took
  that day.

Edgeworth:
  All the other photos are of
  the witness herself, playing
  among the wild flowers.

Mia:
  The witness herself?
  Then who took the photos?

Melissa:
  Well... You see...
  My camera has a timer
  feature built into it.

Mia:
  So, you took photos of
  yourself!?

Judge:
  Hmm...
  I remember taking some photos
  of myself once, too!

Mia:
  (Please! No details...!)

Judge:
  ...It seems that Ms. Fey's
  assertion was not so decisive
  after all.

Mia:
  W-Wait!
  Just a minute!

Judge:
  Well, if she had no film left,
  she couldn't very well take
  more pictures, eh.

Edgeworth:
  Ms. Foster, perhaps then
  you could tell us about a
  different sort of photo.

Edgeworth:
  Photos of the incident that
  you "took" with your very
  own eyes.

Melissa:
  Mr. Edgeworth...
  You're quite the poet!

Judge:
  Very well then! Let's get back
  to the cross-examination.

Judge:
  ...Let's hear your thoughts
  on the fight that you
  witnessed!

Melissa:
  Yes... Mr. Judge.

Mia:
  (Boy, this guy is really a
  sucker for sweet talk...)

Armando:
  Ha...!

Armando:
  It looks like the other kitten
  in the room is the one that's
  getting all the attention.

Mia:
  Yeah, it's sickening.

*Present Dusky Bridge Map* at (4b) or (5b)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  Witness!
  Your testimony is a joke!

Melissa:
  Huh... Wh-What...?
  B-But I... I just...

Judge:
  Ms. Fey!
  I thought I warned you not
  to make the witness cry!

Mia:
  One short testimony and
  two bad contradictions...

Mia:
  There's no possible excuse!

Judge:
  You say there were...
  two contradictions!?

Mia:
  It's simple.
  Just take a look at the
  diagram of the area.

Mia:
  According to her testimony,
  the two of them were in the
  middle of the bridge.

Mia:
  But if they were, and the
  victim had turned around
  and tried to run...

Mia:
  Well, then...

Judge:
  S-She would've hit a
  dead-end...!

Mia:
  You said 10 yards, but she
  couldn't have ran even 5!

Mia:
  Because Dusky Bridge is
  collapsed on that side!

Melissa:
  Waaaaaah!

Judge:
  Wh-What does all this
  mean!?

Mia:
  It's very simple, Your Honor.

Mia:
  This charming, little witness
  told a charming, little lie.

Mia:
  That's all there is to it.

Melissa:
  Nnnn...ggg...urk...

Judge:
  Th-This beautiful, young
  lady has been l-lying
  to the court...?

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Just a moment, Your Honor.

Mia:
  (M-Mr. Edgeworth...!)

Edgeworth:
  Your Honor...
  Allow me to personally
  apologize for the confusion.

Judge:
  What do you mean?

Edgeworth:
  There's one major mistake
  in this diagram.

Mia:
  What did you say!?

Judge:
  What are you referring to?

Edgeworth:
  It's all because this diagram
  was made after the incident
  occurred.

Edgeworth:
  It's a very old bridge...
  We couldn't find any
  official blueprints of it.

Judge:
  S-So you're saying...?

Edgeworth:
  I'm saying that even though
  this bridge is currently
  in disrepair...

Edgeworth:
  ...there's no evidence that
  can prove that the bridge was
  broken during the incident.

Mia:
  Th-That's ridiculous...!

Edgeworth:
  You can't actually tell the
  condition of the bridge from
  this photo...

Edgeworth:
  I apologize to the court for
  not being more clear when
  I presented the evidence.

Judge:
  Hmm.
  Hmmmm...

Armando:
  Ha...!
  That guy is good.

Mia:
  Huh? What do you mean?

Armando:
  He planned it from the
  beginning.

Armando:
  He's a genius alright...
  That diagram of the bridge
  was his insurance policy.

Mia:
  (What!? That coward!)

Judge:
  Well, Ms. Fey...
  It seems you've once again
  made a reckless accusation.

Mia:
  ...!

Melissa:
  I-I'm so sorry!
  I should have been more
  careful myself...!

Judge:
  No, no, no, no!
  It wasn't YOUR fault at all!

Edgeworth:
  Now then...
  Shall we go on with the trial?

Edgeworth:
  I'd like to establish, once
  and for all, what it was that
  the witness actually saw.

Judge:
  Indeed.

Judge:
  Alright, young lady...

Judge:
  May I ask you to please
  proceed with your testimony?

Melissa:
  But I...
  It's so hard to go on...!

Judge:
  We're all on your side,
  Ms. Foster!

Edgeworth:
  There's no need to worry.
  Just tell us what you saw.

Melissa:
  Y-Yes, sir!

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Running From the Crime --

(1)
Melissa:
  After he stabbed her in the
  back, he quickly picked her
  up in his arms.

(2)
Melissa:
  Then he carried her over
  to the car.

(3)
Melissa:
  I suppose that was the
  only way he could make
  sure the body stayed hidden.

(4)
Melissa:
  He couldn't just leave the
  body on top of the bridge.

(5)
Melissa:
  Oh, I'm sorry... I'm only
  supposed to talk about what
  I saw.

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

Judge:
  Hmm...
  Witnessing such violence
  must have been difficult.

Melissa:
  Yes, sir...
  I-I'm still shaken up...

Armando:
  If he accepts this testimony
  as it is, we're finished.

Mia:
  D-Don't say that...!

Armando:
  Oh well...
  Maybe I'll stop off at my
  favorite café on the way home.

Armando:
  They make a really great
  mocha latté...

Mia:
  This trial isn't over yet!

Armando:
  Ha...!
  That's what I like to hear...

Judge:
  Alright, Ms. Fey.
  Your cross-examination,
  if you please.

Mia:
  (The contradiction is staring
  you right in the face, Mia!
  Go on the attack!)

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Running From the Crime --

(1)
Melissa:
  After he stabbed her in the
  back, he quickly picked her
  up in his arms.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Are you saying that the
       victim didn't fall down
       on the bridge?

     Melissa:
       Err... Umm...
       Actually, maybe she did fall.

     Edgeworth:
       Of course she didn't fall
       down on the bridge.

     Edgeworth:
       If she had fallen down,
       this photo wouldn't make
       any sense.

     Edgeworth:
       If that was the case, her
       coat would've been all muddy.

     Mia:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Mia:
       If you don't mind, I was
       asking the witness!

     Edgeworth:
       *sigh*
       No need to be so rude.

     Judge:
       Well, young lady?

     Melissa:
       ...

     Melissa:
       Of course she didn't
       fall down.

     Melissa:
       The man in the prison uniform
       grabbed her before she could.

     Mia:
       ...

     Armando:
       Ha...!
       We're one step too slow...

     Edgeworth:
       And then, what did the
       defendant do after that?

(2)
Melissa:
  Then he carried her over
  to the car.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You personally witnessed that?

     Melissa:
       Y-Yes...

     Mia:
       Did anything strange happen
       when he did that?

     Melissa:
       Well, I don't know if you'd
       call it strange or not...

     Melissa:
       ...but that's when the
       victim's scarf fell off.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       You mean this scarf!?

     Edgeworth:
       Her words match what we
       found at the scene.
       I don't see any problem...

(3)
Melissa:
  I suppose that was the
  only way he could make
  sure the body stayed hidden.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You mean the defendant carried
       the body all by himself?

     Melissa:
       Y-Yes...

     Edgeworth:
       Considering the size of the
       defendant, I don't think it
       would be difficult.

     Mia:
       Yes, but... Let's remember
       they were on a narrow bridge
       that was ready to collapse!

     Mia:
       Is it even possible for him to
       have carried a dead body on
       a bridge like that...?

     Edgeworth:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Edgeworth:
       Well, the fact of the
       matter is that he DID!

     Edgeworth:
       That kind of talk is just
       silly!

     Mia:
       (Wow... Why did he get so
       emotional all of a sudden?)

     Judge:
       Ms. Fey, if you think there's
       some other possibility, please
       share it with the rest of us.

(3b)
Melissa:
  The killer broke into the
  trunk of the stolen car and
  hid the body in there.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       What did the man do then?

     Melissa:
       Well... Naturally, he got in
       the car and was about to flee.

     Melissa:
       That's... That's when I
       came to my senses.

     Melissa:
       I said to myself,
       "You have to call the police!"

     Edgeworth:
       And so that's when you
       called the police?

     Mia:
       You're sure that you saw
       all that with your own eyes?

     Melissa:
       Yes. I'm 100% certain.

(4)
Melissa:
  He couldn't just leave the
  body on top of the bridge.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Why do you say that? It's
       already a broken-down bridge
       hidden away in the mountains.

     Mia:
       Doing anything more to hide
       the corpse would be going
       overboard, wouldn't it?

     Melissa:
       Yes, but that mountain is
       famous among hikers.

     Melissa:
       A surprising number of
       people go up there.

     Mia:
       But it's February, right?
       And it was raining that day,
       correct?

     Melissa:
       There is also a small temple
       and a channeling dojo there.

     Melissa:
       You know those monks...
       They just love cold, isolated
       places...

     Edgeworth:
       I think the witness is trying
       to say that the corpse could
       have been found at any time...

     Edgeworth:
       Besides, the witness is
       merely reporting what she
       witnessed with her own eyes.

     Melissa:
       ...

(5)
Melissa:
  Oh, I'm sorry... I'm only
  supposed to talk about what
  I saw.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       And you're absolutely certain
       that it was my client who was
       carrying the body?

     Melissa:
       ...

     Melissa:
       Well, he was wearing a
       prisoner's uniform, but...
       as for his face...

     Judge:
       So you're saying you didn't
       get a clear look at his face?

     Melissa:
       Well, they were far away and
       it was raining as well.

     Melissa:
       I-I thought I was only
       supposed to say exactly
       what I saw...

     Judge:
       Excellent!
       You're a remarkably honest
       young woman!

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

Mia:
  (Something about this
  testimony is bothering
  me, but what...?)

Armando:
  Hey, Kitten...
  Have you ever put salt
  in your coffee?

Mia:
  No... Why would I!?

Armando:
  Why not?

Mia:
  Huh...?

Armando:
  It may actually go better
  with coffee than sugar, right?

Mia:
  ...

Armando:
  Listen. My point is if you're
  not sure, you might as well
  add a ton of salt to it.

Armando:
  It might... bring out the rust
  in something. Like a piece
  of evidence.

Mia:
  (He's right, Mia...
  Go present something.
  You've got nothing to lose!)

Armando:
  By the way, I wouldn't put
  salt in my coffee. The two
  don't go well, after all.

*Present Dusky Bridge Map* at (3)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  A killer not wanting his
  victim to be found...
  I can understand that.

Mia:
  However! The idea of moving
  the body for that purpose is
  clearly odd.

Mia:
  There was a much easier
  way to make sure the body
  wasn't found!

Edgeworth:
  ...

Judge:
  W-Well? What is it!?

Mia:
  Take another look at the
  map of the area and you'll
  see how.

Mia:
  There's a river right below
  the bridge.

Mia:
  Earlier Mr. Edgeworth pointed
  out something interesting
  about the river.

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

Edgeworth:
  For those who are not aware,
  Eagle River is well-known for
  its powerful current.

Edgeworth:
  Most bodies that fall in
  are never recovered...

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

Judge:
  Ahh...

Mia:
  In the kidnapping case 5 years
  ago, the victim's body was
  carried away and never found.

Melissa:
  ...!

Mia:
  If 10 murders were to occur
  at that same spot above the
  Eagle River...

Mia:
  ...you can bet your boots that
  every other killer would have
  tossed the body in the water!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!

Judge:
  I'm not sure if I care
  for the way you put that,
  Ms. Fey!

Judge:
  But I must admit it does seem
  odd not to have thrown the
  body into the river!

Melissa:
  Ooooh...!

Judge:
  Well, Mr. Edgeworth?

Edgeworth:
  *sigh*
  How sad.

Edgeworth:
  Perhaps Ms. Fey would do
  well to try taking a dip in
  the river herself.

Edgeworth:
  After all, you claim to be
  such an expert in the ways
  of nature...

Mia:
  What are you talking about?

Edgeworth:
  My point is that no matter how
  odd you may find the killer's
  method of body-disposal...

Edgeworth:
  ...the fact is that this is
  what the killer did.

Edgeworth:
  None of your arguments have
  anything to do with what the
  witness saw.

Judge:
  Hmm...
  Quite true...

Judge:
  Ms. Fey, it seems that your
  assertion is without merit
  after all.

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  But what the witness claims
  to have seen is totally
  ridiculous...

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Surely you can't deny that
  the body was found in the
  trunk of the car.

Judge:
  That's certainly consistent
  with what the witness has
  told us.

Mia:
  Ugh...

Edgeworth:
  Please, witness, go on
  with your testimony.

Melissa:
  I-I'll try...

Edgeworth:
  All you have to do is
  tell us only what you saw.

Edgeworth:
  Otherwise the mean lady
  might yell at you again.

Mia:
  (Who is he talking about!?)

Melissa:
  Alright!
  I-I'll do my best!

*Present Dusky Bridge Map or Witness's Photo* at (3b)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  Well, Ms. Foster...
  It looks like you've done it
  this time.

Melissa:
  ...?
  D-Done what?

Mia:
  Made a crucial mistake.

Judge:
  A c-crucial mistake?
  Like what, Ms. Fey!?

Mia:
  "The killer broke into the
  trunk of the stolen car and
  hid the body in there."

Mia:
  You're saying you saw
  that, right? With your
  very own eyes?

Melissa:
  Y-Yes... And...?

Mia:
  It's simple, Ms. Foster.
  Take a look at the diagram.

Mia:
  The place you claim to have
  taken the photo from that
  day is here.

Mia:
  Do you see what I mean?
  Even if you tried to see
  the car...

Mia:
  ...this outcropping of rock is
  directly in the way.

Melissa:
  Ah...!

Mia:
  That's right, Ms. Foster.

Mia:
  From where you were standing,
  you could not have possibly
  seen the killer's car.

Melissa:
  Aaaaah...!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  I admit that the diagram shows
  a large outcropping of rock.

Edgeworth:
  However...
  It isn't so tall that it would
  stop her from seeing the car!

Melissa:
  Th-That's right!

Melissa:
  It-It's not high at all...

Melissa:
  I-I was able to see his car
  just fine!

Mia:
  I'm so sorry...
  But that just doesn't wash.

Melissa:
  ...!

Mia:
  I believe it was the witness
  who presented this as evidence
  to the court, yes?

Mia:
  This is the location that the
  photo was taken from.

Mia:
  Your own photo tells the
  whole story!

Mia:
  You can clearly see the
  left side of the bridge...

Mia:
  But the outcropping that is
  being referred to is really
  more like a cliff.

Judge:
  Ah!

Mia:
  Your view should have been
  completely cut off by this
  cliff!

Mia:
  But still you claim to have
  been able to see the killer's
  car!

Melissa:
  ...

Melissa:
  Noooooo!

Judge:
  Or-Order! Order in the court!
  What is the meaning of all
  this ballyhoo...!?

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Your Honor...
  Don't jump to any hasty
  conclusions.

Edgeworth:
  The fact that the escapee fled
  in a stolen car was reported
  on the news.

Edgeworth:
  After witnessing a murder, I'm
  sure you can appreciate that
  the witness was very upset.

Edgeworth:
  She must have heard about the
  stolen car and convinced
  herself that she saw it.

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  But she was repeatedly
  warned before starting her
  testimony!

Mia:
  She was told to testify only
  about what she saw with her
  own eyes!

Judge:
  Hmmmmm... Oh!

Melissa:
  Err... Mr. Judge?

Judge:
  Wh-What is it?

Melissa:
  I think... I think I must have
  remembered things wrong...

Mia:
  *HOLD IT!*

Mia:
  Hey! Wait a minute!
  You can't just say that...!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Ms. Fey, no one on the face
  of the planet is perfect.

Judge:
  Hmmmm... Yes, indeed...
  Quite true!
  You know what they say...

Judge:
  "To err is human,
  to forgive, divine."

Judge:
  I'm inclined to give the
  benefit of the doubt to
  our witness here.

Mia:
  What...!?
  Th-That's not fair...!

Armando:
  Ha...!
  Save the tears for
  later, Kitten!

Mia:
  M-Mr. Armando!

Armando:
  Don't look back until the
  trial is over. Now is the time
  to go forward.

Mia:
  B-But...!
  But that wasn't fair!

Armando:
  OK, Kitten, you need to
  relax. Then you need to
  remember...

Armando:
  The other kitten's
  testimony!

Melissa:
  The killer broke into the
  trunk of the stolen car and
  hid the body in there.

Armando:
  So tell us...
  How did you know that?

Armando:
  How did you know that he
  broke into the trunk?

Mia:
  Aha...!

Armando:
  Until you can explain how
  you knew that...

Armando:
  ...you're going to have a lot
  of very suspicious people on
  this side of the courtroom.

Melissa:
  ...

Judge:
  W-Well, witness?

Melissa:
  Well, I'm certain that he
  broke into the trunk.

Melissa:
  Because... Because there were
  marks left on the trunk lid.

Melissa:
  I'm certain they were scratch
  marks from when he broke
  into it...!

Judge:
  W-What...!?
  L-Let me see that photo!

Judge:
  It's true... These certainly
  look like scratch marks
  around the keyhole!

Judge:
  HMMMM...!

Judge:
  It's obvious that this trunk
  has been broken open.

Judge:
  Well, Ms. Fey?
  Are you satisfied...?

Mia:
  (The judge is on her side!
  I can't make any mistakes
  here!)

Mia:
  (What she just said...
  Is there a contradiction in
  there somewhere...?)

xxx I'll buy it. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
x
x Mia:
x   (Something about it still
x   doesn't feel right, but...)
x
x Mia:

x   I'm satisfied... Sort of.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   I hope this has cleared up
x   any doubts...
x

x
x Armando:

  You said you were in a field

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Mia:
  There's only one way that
  the witness had the chance
  to see those scratches.

Judge:
  Y-Yes? What was it?

Mia:
  Naturally...

Mia:
  When she opened the trunk...
  and stuffed the corpse in
  herself!

Edgeworth:
  ...!

Mia:
  The person who really hid
  the body in the trunk of that
  car was...

Mia:
  Melissa Foster!
  It was you that did it,
  wasn't it!?

Melissa:
  Th-That's ridiculous!
  I could never...!

Melissa:
  It was the man in the
  prison garb!
  He-He's the one that...

Mia:
  I don't think so, Ms. Foster.

Mia:
  If Mr. Fawles had been the
  one that put the corpse in
  the trunk...

Mia:
  ...he would have simply used
  the car key. There was no need
  to break it open.

Melissa:
  B-But...!
  He stole the car...!

Mia:
  He stole it from a young
  couple that had been waiting
  at a red light.

Mia:
  Which means that the key
  would have still been in the
  ignition.

Melissa:
  Oh...! I-I... I see...

Mia:
  Thank you for telling us about
  the scratches, Ms. Foster.

Mia:
  Without that, we never would
  have uncovered the truth.

Mia:
  It couldn't have been
  Mr. Fawles that put the body
  in the trunk!

Melissa:
  Nooooo!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  P-Preposterous!
  To even suggest that the
  witness put the body in there!

Edgeworth:
  If that were true... then how
  do you explain the photo
  that she took?

Edgeworth:
  The corpse could only have
  been put in the trunk when
  the incident occurred.

Edgeworth:
  And we already know that
  at the time, she was taking
  photographs!

Mia:
  (Now is your chance, Mia!
  Finish this thing!)

Mia:
  On the contrary, I'm not so
  certain about that anymore,
  Mr. Edgeworth.

Edgeworth:
  ...!

Mia:
  There's no need to think
  too deeply about it.

Mia:
  What I'm saying is the shutter
  for this may not have been
  pushed by Ms. Foster herself!

*Present Camera*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  I don't think you can make
  a mistake about it. Take
  a look at her camera.

Mia:
  It has a timer built into it!
  Even a mini-tripod!

Judge:
  Hmmmm...!

Mia:
  Almost as if the camera
  was brought just to take
  this picture!

Melissa:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  What are you trying to
  say then, Ms. Fey!?

Edgeworth:
  That when the crime occurred,
  Ms. Foster wasn't in the field
  as she claimed!?

Mia:
  (Well, if she really did use
  the camera's auto-timer...)

Mia:
  (...then the answer is yes,
  she was somewhere else.)

Mia:
  Exactly.
  She was NOT in the field.

Judge:
  Hmm...
  Would the defense
  please explain further.

Armando:
  Listen...
  This is a crucial point.

Armando:
  "Where was Ms. Foster when
  the incident occurred...?"

Armando:
  In answering that question,
  we'll also make clear
  Ms. Foster's true identity.

Judge:
  Well then, please answer
  this question.

Judge:
  Where was Melissa Foster
  when the incident on the
  bridge occurred?

x Mia:
x   *TAKE THAT!*
x
x Mia:
x   Naturally the witness was
x   right... here!
x   ...I think.
x
x Judge:
x   Hmm... In the spot where
x   the defendant's car was?
x
x Mia:
x   Yes! She had to put the body
x   in the trunk before the
x   defendant returned!
x
x Edgeworth:
x   *OBJECTION!*
x
x Edgeworth:
x   You don't mind if I ask
x   one teenie-weenie question,
x   do you, Ms. Fey...?
x
x Mia:
x   (Uh oh. He's got that
x   condescending tone in his
x   voice...)
x
x Edgeworth:
x   If she put the body in
x   the trunk at that time,
x   as you suggest...
x
x Edgeworth:
x   ...that must mean that
x   Valerie Hawthorne was already
x   dead at that point, correct?
x
x Judge:
x   Hmm, indeed.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   Please take a look at the
x   top of Dusky Bridge.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   It certainly looks to me like
x   the victim is still alive...
x   Am I mistaken?
x
x Mia:
x   Err...
x
x Edgeworth:
x   If Valerie Hawthorne was
x   already dead, then...
x   who is this?
x
x Edgeworth:
x   The mountain is famous for
x   spirits, so maybe you think it
x   was the ghost of the victim?
x
x Mia:
x   ...
x
x Mia:
x   Well, it COULD have been
x   a spirit... Right?
x
x Judge:
x   Ms. Fey! Don't waste the
x   court's time with this kind
x   of foolishness!
x
x Mia:
x   A-Anyway! I still maintain
x   that the witness was in a
x   different place at the time!
x
x Judge:
x   Are you certain?
x
x Mia:
x   Yes, I am certain!
x   More or less.

x
x Mia:
x   Naturally, the witness was

x
x Judge:
x   Hmmmmm...
x   Well, what do you think,
x   Mr. Edgeworth?
x
x Edgeworth:
x   *sigh*
x
x Edgeworth:
x   Before pointing out where the
x   witness was standing, Ms. Fey
x   should do something herself.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   She should figure out where
x   SHE stands, if you catch
x   my drift!
x
x Mia:
x   (Oh don't worry, the drift
x   was certainly caught...)

*Present the blue circle (the victim)*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  Naturally, the witness
  was right here!

Judge:
  B-But that's...

Judge:
  But that's where the victim,
  Ms. Hawthorne was standing!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!
  Ms. Fey! What on earth...!?

Mia:
  Your Honor, if I may...

Mia:
  After parting with the
  "victim" on the bridge, the
  defendant fled by car.

Mia:
  But this would mean
  that there was no time to
  put the victim in the trunk.

Mia:
  In other words, if someone
  put the body in the trunk...

Mia:
  ...it could only have been
  before the defendant met
  the "victim"!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  How asinine!
  Of course Mr. Fawles
  met with the victim!

Edgeworth:
  The only person with the
  opportunity to have put the
  victim in the trunk...

Edgeworth:
  ...is the same man that killed
  her, Terry Fawles!

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  You still don't understand,
  do you, Mr. Edgeworth?

Mia:
  By the time the witness's
  photo was taken, the victim
  was already dead...

Mia:
  The person in the photo was
  NOT Valerie Hawthorne!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  What!? I've never heard
  anything more ridiculous
  in my entire life!

Edgeworth:
  Then who exactly is the
  "victim" in this photo!?

Mia:
  It's obvious, isn't it?
  It's your own witness.

Melissa:
  ...!

Judge:
  Wh-Wh-Whaaaat...!?

Mia:
  It's the only possible
  explanation.

Mia:
  The woman that Mr. Fawles
  met on the bridge that day was
  not Valerie Hawthorne!

Mia:
  It was you!
  Melissa Foster!

Melissa:
  M-M-Me...!?

Mia:
  Let's remember that it was
  raining and foggy on the
  mountain that day.

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles himself believed
  that the woman in front of
  him was Valerie Hawthorne!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  But the defendant knew
  Valerie Hawthorne very well!

Edgeworth:
  After all, she was the woman
  whose testimony helped get
  him convicted!

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia
  But since then, my client has
  spent five hard years in a
  federal penitentiary!

Mia:
  He couldn't remember exactly
  what she looked like anymore!

Edgeworth:
  You are just making this
  up as you go along!
  Where's your proof!?

Mia:
  (I've got it all right here!
  This piece of evidence will
  blow this case wide open...!)

Mia:
  At the time of the incident,
  Mr. Fawles had forgotten what
  Valerie Hawthorne looked like!

*Present Victim's Note or Scarf*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles had forgotten
  the victim's face.

Mia:
  That's why he needed some
  piece of identification.
  Namely, this muddy scarf!

Melissa:
  Ah...!

Mia:
  It was Mr. Fawles who
  requested that she wear this
  scarf to identify herself.

Mia:
  That's already been proven
  by the note the victim left!

Edgeworth:
  ...

Mia:
  In other words, as long as
  you were wearing a scarf
  like he asked...

Mia:
  ...anyone could have pretended
  to be Valerie Hawthorne!

Melissa:
  ...

Mia:
  Well? What do you have to
  say to that, Melissa Foster!?

Melissa:
  Nnng...Gggh...Unnn...!

Melissa:
  N-N-N-N-N-Nnnnoooooooo!!!

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

Judge:
  Err... Ahh...
  Where's Ms. Foster...?

Edgeworth:
  She's collecting herself
  in the Lobby.

Judge:
  Hmmmmm...

Mia:
  (It's obvious that
  Melissa Foster did it.)

Mia:
  (She hid the body in the
  trunk and disguised herself
  as the victim...)

Mia:
  (She set up the camera to
  snap a fake photo of them
  together...)

Armando:
  The only question is...
  why did she do it...?

Mia
  Well, isn't that obvious?

Mia:
  She's the true criminal!

Armando:
  Ha...!

Judge:
  Well, we'll have to wait for
  Ms. Foster to compose
  herself before we start again.

Judge:
  Until then, this court is
  in recess.

Judge:
  The defense and the
  prosecution are instructed
  to wait in the lobby.

Mia:
  Yes, Your Honor.

Edgeworth:
  Understood.

Judge:
  Very well!
  This court is in recess!


                                             To be continued.

District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 4

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles, I...

Fawles:
  UGGAAAA!

Mia:
  Eeeeeek!
  I'm sorry! I-I'm sorry!

Fawles:
  I wanna say thanks.
  You're real good!
  You really hooked me up!

Mia:
  Thanks! We're almost there!
  Once I prove that she
  committed the crime...

Armando:
  ...Yeah, but there's one more
  big obstacle we've got to
  get past.

Mia:
  Ob-Obstacle...?

Armando:
  Yeah. Motive.
  Why would Melissa Foster
  kill that policewoman anyway?

Mia:
  (Motive, huh...)

Armando:
  Anyway... We're still badly
  in need of information.

Mia:
  Information... Right...

Armando:
  What we need the most
  is info about this
  Melissa Foster herself.

Armando:
  All we know is that she's
  a student studying
  literature.

Armando:
  And one more thing.

Mia:
  ...What is it?

Armando:
  Well, the incident that
  happened 5 years ago,
  of course.

Armando:
  The kidnapping-murder case
  that Zebra Boy is on
  death row for...

Fawles:
  I din't do nuttin'!
  I din't kill nobody!
  I never lie!

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles! In that case...
  Tell us more about it.

Mia:
  ...About what happened
  5 years ago.

Fawles:
  ...

Fawles:
  OK.
  I trust you.

Fawles:
  That day. 5 years ago.
  I dream of it. Every day.

Fawles:
  This picture.
  It reminds me everything.

Fawles:
  Bridge looks same.
  Just like then...
  5 years ago...

Fawles:
  Like it could fall apart...
  Fall apart any minute...

Mia:
  (So it's been broken like
  that for at least 5 years...)

Armando:
  Ha...! Sorry buddy, but you
  sound like the one that could
  fall apart at any minute.

Fawles:
  It true. I did...
  ...I did kidnap her.

Fawles:
  ...Five years ago.
  I kidnapped. My girlfriend.
  Dahlia Hawthorne.

Mia:
  Y-Your g-girlfriend?
  Huh...?

Armando:
  Hey, hold on there!
  Did you say, "Hawthorne"!?

Mia:
  (The victim's last name...!)

Fawles:
  Dahlia Hawthorne...
  Valerie's little sister.

Mia:
  Wh-Wh-Whaaat!? Are you
  serious!?

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

  The girl... Let her go!

  Shut up!
  C-Come closer...
  And I kill her!

  Sorry, but you're not going
  to get the chance...

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

Mia:
  (The detective back then
  was Valerie Hawthorne!)

Mia:
  At first I thought shooting
  someone for a kidnapping was
  crossing the line, but...

Mia:
  If it was to protect her
  little sister, I can
  understand why she did it...

Fawles:
  Wrong! No protect sister!
  Valerie betray me! Betray us!

Mia:
  What do you mean she
  betrayed you!?

Fawles:
  Everything. All lies.
  All make-believe.
  Kidnapping, too...

Mia:
  A make-believe kidnapping?

Fawles:
  Dahlia. My girlfriend.
  My love. My Teen Angel.

Mia:
  (Ugh. Did he actually say,
  "My Teen Angel"? He's seen
  one too many soap operas.)

Fawles:
  I do anything she says.
  Anything Dahlia says...

Mia:
  ("Anything Dahlia says"...?)
  H-Hold on a minute!

Mia:
  What you're saying is that
  the kidnapping 5 years ago
  was planned by...

Fawles:
  Yeah. Me and Dahlia...
  ...And Valerie, too.

Mia:
  (Valerie was in on it!?)

Fawles:
  Dahlia's family rich. Jewelry
  business. We get one jewel...
  That's what we thought...

Fawles:
  Me and Dahlia wrote kidnap
  note. We send to her dad.

Fawles:
  Asked for 2 million dollar
  diamond. Tell him make
  exchange on Dusky Bridge.

Fawles:
  ...We tell him Valerie make
  transfer 'cause she new
  detective.

Armando:
  Having a police detective
  in your pocket is a useful
  thing alright.

Armando:
  In the end, you were planning
  on splitting the 2 million
  three ways, huh...

Fawles:
  Yeah, but!
  That woman!

Fawles:
  That woman!
  Valerie!
  She do it for real!

Fawles:
  She shoot at me for real!
  Me and Dahlia!

          *BANG!*

Fawles:
  I was shot in arm.
  Dahlia... She jump in river.

Mia:
  Jump...?
  You don't mean she jumped
  on purpose, do you?

Fawles:
  I couldn't do it!
  I could never push her...!

Fawles:
  Anyway, I blacked out...
  Wake up with police all over.

Armando:
  ...And that's when they
  decided to give you the
  death sentence.

Fawles:
  I couldn't believe it.
  That woman. She betrayed me.

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

Valerie:
  That man... Terry Fawles...
  He killed her!
  He threw her off the bridge!

Valerie:
  He threw my beloved sister
  into the roaring river
  40 feet below!

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

Fawles:
  ...These 5 years...
  All I wonder is... Why!
  ...Why! ...Why! ...Why!

Fawles:
  Why did she lie!?
  That's all I want to know!

Armando:
  So that's why you called her.
  You wanted to hear the truth
  from Valerie herself.

Fawles:
  Yes... but I forget what she
  look like. So I tell her
  to wear scarf.

Fawles:
  I don't want to hurt her!
  ...Just ask why!

Fawles:
  Why! Why did you lie...?
  Why did you betray me...?

Fawles:
  I just want to hear answer
  come from her mouth.
  That's all!

Mia:
  (So that's why...
  That's why you made a crazy
  escape like that...)

Armando:
  Just one thing, Zebra Boy...

Armando:
  My senses are tingling all
  over. Tell me, Mr. Fawles...
  Where is it?

Mia:
  ...Huh? Where's what?

Armando:
  Come on now, Kitten...
  The ransom.
  The 2 million dollar diamond.

Armando:
  Remember that now?
  Did you give it back to Pops?
  Did the police take it?

Fawles:
  ...I dunno.

Mia:
  Huh? You don't know?

Fawles:
  No really. I dunno.
  It's gone. With Dahlia.

Mia:
  ...With Dahlia?

Fawles:
  That day. On the bridge...

Fawles:
  Dahlia put it. In backpack...

Fawles:
  Now gone. With Dahlia.
  Gone... Forever...

Fawles:
  Into Eagle River...

Mia:
  (It disappeared with
  Dahlia, huh...?
  Wait a minute...!)

Bailiff:
  ...You can come back in now!
  We're about ready to go!

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles!
  Just one more question!

Mia:
  When you said, "with Dahlia",
  do you mean the diamond is
  still missing...?

Mia:
  Along with the body of
  Dahlia Hawthorne?

Fawles:
  ...

Fawles:
  Never found her...
  My sweet Dahlia...

Mia:
  (They never found her...!)

Fawles:
  Swallowed by river... Gone...
  Dahlia... My Teen Angel...

Armando:
  Your "Teen Angel"...?
  How old was she anyway?

Fawles:
  Just 14...

Mia:
  F-F-Fourteen!?
  (I guess you were robbing
  cradles before diamonds...)

Armando:
  She plans a fake kidnapping
  and disappears into the river
  with a rock worth 2 mil...

Armando:
  Man oh man...
  Angels these days.

Mia:
  (Fawles takes the fall...
  And gets a one-way ticket
  to Death Row...)

Mia:
  (Is Dahlia Hawthorne an
  angel or is she really a...)

Armando:
  ...It's time, Kitten.
  It looks like we have a few
  more aces up our sleeve now.

Mia:
  ...You bet!

*Diamond added to the
Court Record.*

Armando:
  The training wheels come off
  now, Mia! You've got to
  strike while the iron is hot!

Armando:
  That's one of my rules.
  Remember it.

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

February 16, 1:49 PM
District Court
Courtroom No. 4

Judge:
  Now then, let's continue with
  the trial of Mr. Terry Fawles.

Judge:
  ...Witness.
  Are you feeling better?

Melissa:
  Y-Yes, Your Honor...
  I-I'll try my best.

Judge:
  Hmm...
  You're a brave young lady.

Mia:
  (Not this again...)

Edgeworth:
  I can understand a defense
  lawyer wanting to get her
  client off the hook...

Edgeworth:
  However!
  To try to pin the crime on
  an innocent student is...

Mia:
  What are you talking about!?

Edgeworth:
  My witness is not the person
  on trial here.

Edgeworth:
  She's an innocent bystander
  who witnessed a violent crime.
  ...That's all.

Edgeworth:
  What possible reason would
  a girl like this have for
  murdering a policewoman!

Judge:
  Hmm...
  It's certainly hard to imagine
  this woman as a murderer...

Mia:
  (Her motive, huh...
  I figured that's what I had
  to establish next...)

Judge:
  Well, Ms. Fey?
  Do you have any evidence
  of a motive?

Mia:
  ...
  Err, yes! Of course!
  ...I think.

Armando:
  Hah...!
  You're still acting as tame as
  a kitten... Kitten.

Mia:
  Mr. Armando...

Armando:
  Listen...
  A lawyer is someone who smiles
  no matter how bad it gets.

Mia:
  ...!

Armando:
  Smiling on the outside while
  your guts are twisted in knots
  is the mark of a pro.

Mia:
  ...Maybe so, but I wish you
  would quit grinning at me
  like that.

Melissa:
  Umm... Excuse me...
  May I speak, Mr. Judge?

Judge:
  Of course!
  Mr. Judge is ready
  anytime you like!

Melissa:
  I'd like... I'd like to
  say something.

Melissa:
  Some people here are
  suspicious of me, right?
  Th-That's why...

Melissa:
  I... I at least wanted you,
  Mr. Judge, to know that it's
  not true...

Judge:
  Hmmmmm!
  I see! You're such an honest
  and upstanding young lady.

Armando:
  It looks like this witness
  is a real professional.

Mia:
  Wh-What do you mean!?

Armando:
  Look at that 100-watt smile.

Armando:
  ...Just when things are
  darkest for her... CLICK.
  She lights right up!

Judge:
  Very well then! Let's hear
  what the witness has to say!

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Melissa Foster's History --

(1)
Melissa:
  I... I was out of the country
  until the year before last.

(2)
Melissa:
  Until I entered college, I
  had never even been to
  Eagle Mountain before...

(3)
Melissa:
  And I certainly don't have any
  reason for wanting to hurt a
  police officer.

(4)
Melissa:
  Holding a grudge and killing
  the officer who testified
  against you 5 years ago...

(5)
Melissa:
  Or kidnapping a poor girl...
  I just think the defendant is
  a terrible, horrible monster!

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

Judge:
  Hmm...
  Out of the country, eh...

Edgeworth:
  Precisely.

Edgeworth:
  Furthermore, she has
  no possible motive for
  committing murder.

Judge:
  Hmm, indeed...

Armando:
  You're up to bat, Kitten.
  Sharpen those claws and
  put on your best smile.

Mia:
  Y-You bet!

Mia:
  (Somehow, I have to tie her
  to this case...)

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Melissa Foster's History --

(1)
Melissa:
  I... I was out of the country
  until the year before last.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So, what country were
       you living in then?

     Melissa:
       We were all living abroad,
       but after my parents were
       killed...

     Edgeworth:
       It was a brutal civil war.
       She had to try to make her way
       back home alone...

     Melissa:
       I lost everything...
       I didn't even have any
       personal identification...

     Mia:
       (What kind of sob story
       is this...?)

     Mia:
       (...What do I do? Should
       I press her for details?)

     *** Wait and see ***************************
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (There's nothing I can do

     *
     * Mia:
     *   (All I can do is wait to

     *   I'll even repeat it for you.
     *   What country were you in?
     *
     * Edgeworth:
     *   *OBJECTION!*
     *
     * Edgeworth:
     *   Your Honor, this line of
     *   questioning is childish.
     *
     * Edgeworth:
     *   What country she was in and
     *   how many languages she may
     *   speak are irrelevant here.
     *
     * Edgeworth:
     *   What we're here to evaluate is
     *   whether this witness has any
     *   connection to this case.
     *
     * Melissa:
     *   I've lived abroad ever since
     *   I was a little girl...
     *

     *   That's why I could never

Melissa:
  Naturally, I didn't know
  either the victim or
  the defendant.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You didn't know either person?
       Are you certain of that?

     Melissa:
       Yes. I'm afraid I'm rather
       shy around people.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       Oh well, that can't be helped.

     Mia:
       (Why is he just agreeing with
       everything that comes out of
       her mouth...?)

     Judge:
       The first time you saw either
       of them was when they
       were on the bridge, correct?

     Melissa:
       Yes... It really was
       a coincidence.

(2)
Melissa:
  Until I entered college, I
  had never even been to
  Eagle Mountain before...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       So what made you decide to
       go to Eagle Mountain anyway?

     Melissa:
       I just love being outdoors...
       Picnics, hiking... You know,
       that sort of thing.

     Mia:
       (...You don't look like much
       of a hiker to me. But you do
       look like a digger of sorts.)

     Mia:
       But Eagle Mountain is a
       two-hour drive from here and
       no trains run through there.

     Mia:
       There are plenty of mountains
       that are closer and easier to
       get to.

     Melissa:
       Well, I went there once with
       the college Hiking Club.

     Melissa:
       I fell in love with its stark,
       desolate beauty and its cold,
       yet romantic, gloominess...

     Mia:
       (Didn't know you were such
       a goth...)

     Mia:
       By the way, what's the name
       of your college...?

     Edgeworth:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Edgeworth:
       The prosecution objects to
       any questions that involve
       the witness's private life.

     Mia:
       ...!

     Edgeworth:
       All that matters is that
       she is a material witness
       to a crime.

     Edgeworth:
       The witness doesn't need to
       respond to questions that are
       clearly malicious in intent.

     Melissa:
       Thank you!
       She's really gone too far...!

     Judge:
       Hmmmmm!
       Ms. Fey! You're treading on
       thin ice here!

     Mia:
       (I hardly said anything!
       Talk about sensitive...)

(3)
Melissa:
  And I certainly don't have any
  reason for wanting to hurt a
  police officer.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Perhaps, but your behavior
       that day was very suspicious!

     Mia:
       Not only have you contradicted
       yourself here in court, but
       you know things you shouldn't.

     Mia:
       For example, the scratches
       on the trunk of the car.

     Melissa:
       Well th-that's...

     Edgeworth:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Edgeworth:
       Unfortunately Ms. Fey,
       your last statement proves
       nothing.

     Mia:
       Oh really!? And why is that?

     Edgeworth:
       The witness came to the
       police station once to
       identify the suspect.

     Edgeworth:
       It's entirely possible that,
       at that time, an officer
       showed her this photo.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       That seems like a
       rather serious mistake.

     Armando:
       Ha...!
       That's the oldest trick
       in the prosecutor's book.

     Mia:
       Th-That's not fair...!

     Melissa:
       That wicked inmate...
       I'll never be able to
       forget that horrible day...

(4)
Melissa:
  Holding a grudge and killing
  the officer who testified
  against you 5 years ago...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       A grudge...?

     Melissa:
       Well, the policewoman's
       testimony was crucial,
       wasn't it?

     Melissa:
       ...Crucial in getting the
       defendant sentenced to death.

     Edgeworth:
       Yes, and that's precisely
       why he harbored such deep
       anger against her.

     Edgeworth:
       So much anger that he
       forgot his own guilt...

     Mia:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Mia:
       My client has always
       maintained that he's innocent
       of those charges!

     Melissa:
       He seems rather forgetful.
       ...Your client, I mean.

     Mia:
       ...!

     Melissa:
       Not only did he forget about
       what he did, but he forgot the
       poor policewoman as well.

     Mia:
       What do you mean by that?

     Melissa:
       Your client...
       He forgot what the
       detective looked like, right?

     Melissa:
       It's too bad for her that he
       didn't forget about her
       testimony as well.

     Mia:
       (Well, she's right about that.
       Mr. Fawles is kind of
       forgetful...)

     *
     * Mia:
     *   You said, "he forgot what
     *   the detective looked like."
     *   What did you mean by that?
     *
     * Melissa:
     *   Well he couldn't tell who
     *   she was without some kind of
     *   identification, right?
     *
     * Edgeworth:
     *   Quite right... That's why the
     *   victim was wearing a scarf
     *   as identification.
     *
     * Melissa:
     *   Why, if I had been wearing a
     *   white scarf that day...
     *
     * Melissa:
     *   ...then he probably would
     *   have tried to kill me...
     *
     * Judge:
     *   Hmm...
     *   That's true.
     *   He's clearly a bitter man!
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (This is bad. Mr. Fawles's
     *   reputation just keeps getting
     *   worse and worse.)
     *
     * Mia:
     *   (Sometimes it's best not to
     *   poke too deep... What should I
     *   do with that last statement?)
     *
     * *** Have it added to the testimony *********
     * *
     * * Mia:
     * *   Your Honor! What the witness
     * *   said just now was tremendously
     * *   important!
     * *
     * * Mia:
     * *   I'd like it added to the
     * *   official testimony!
     * *
     * * Edgeworth:
     * *   The prosecution has no
     * *   objection...
     * *
     * * Edgeworth:
     * *   After all, the defendant is
     * *   a killer and a mentally
     * *   unbalanced one at that...
     * *
     * * Edgeworth:
     * *   That testimony only helps to
     * *   further prove that point...
     * *
     * * Judge:

     * *
     * * Mia:
     * *   N-No, that's not why I...

     Mia:
       (Any more damage to my
       client's image could be a
       disaster...)

     Mia:
       (The judge already has a
       bad enough opinion of him...)

     Judge:
       You just can't trust someone
       with a bad memory.

     Judge:
       What did you eat for dinner
       one week ago today?

     Judge:
       ...At the very least, a person
       should remember that much.

     Judge:
       As for me, it was payday, so
       I had a nice moose steak with
       some poutine on the side.

     Mia:
       (...And how does this relate
       to anything!?)

     Edgeworth:
       Whether it's eating steak
       or committing murder, a person
       shouldn't deny their actions.

     Edgeworth:
       I'm in complete agreement,
       Your Honor.

Melissa:
  I guess I'm lucky I wasn't
  wearing a white scarf.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       What do you mean by lucky?

     Melissa:
       Well... It's February now.
       Everyone is wearing scarves.

     Melissa:
       If I had accidentally worn
       a white scarf like he said...

     Edgeworth:
       Then you yourself might
       have been killed.

     Judge:
       Hmmmmm... That would've
       been a terrible loss for
       this world!

     Armando:
       Ha...!
       It looks like you pressed
       too hard this time, Kitten.

     Mia:
       Mr. Armando...

     Armando:
       Keep looking around you and
       you're going to lose sight of
       the finish line.

     Armando:
       Justice is blind, but she's
       not deaf. Sometimes you have
       to know when not to talk.

(5)
Melissa:
  Or kidnapping a poor girl...
  I just think the defendant is
  a terrible, horrible monster!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You knew about that incident?

     Mia:
       But weren't you out of
       the country until the
       year before last?

     Melissa:
       Well, I saw a report about
       the escaped convict on the
       news.

     Melissa:
       They had an in-depth report
       about his whole history.

     Judge:
       So you were still living
       abroad 5 years ago, is
       that right?

     Melissa:
       Yes...

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

Mia:
  (I can't let her get away
  with these lies...!)

Armando:
  Listen to me. She's neck-deep
  in this whole thing...

Armando:
  Somehow, you're just going to
  have to get her to show the
  court her true self.

*
* Mia:
*   Witness... I want you to
*   look at this photo you took.
*
* Mia:
*   It's hard to see in the photo,
*   but look at the scarf the
*   victim wore as identification.
*
* Judge:
*   Ah, you are talking about
*   this scarf right here, eh?
*
* Melissa:
*   Y-Yes! That's it!
*   The scarf the policewoman
*   was wearing...

*

*
* Mia:
*   ...This is the scarf you

*
* Mia:
*   But it certainly doesn't look

*
* Edgeworth:
*   Well, it was foggy that day...

*
* Edgeworth:
*   It's not surprising that
*   she mistook it for white!
*
* Mia:
*   *OBJECTION!*
*
* Mia:
*   Sorry, but not this time.
*
* Mia:
*   The witness just confirmed
*   that this was the victim's
*   scarf!
*
* Judge:
*   Yes, but...
*   What's the significance...?
*
* Judge:
*   It's true that the scarf
*   doesn't look white, but...
*
* Mia:
*   There's only one explanation
*   for this mix-up!

*Present Dahlia Hawthorne profile*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  And that person is...
  Dahlia Hawthorne!

Judge:
  Dahlia Hawthorne...?
  I've never heard that name
  before.

Mia:
  Look at the victim's note.
  This is what it says...

Mia:
  "Talk to Dahlia. Tell her this
  time..." There is her name,
  right there.

Judge:
  Wh-What's this...
  So who is this person!?
  This... Dahlia Hawthorne...

Edgeworth:
  *sigh*...

Edgeworth:
  Ms. Fey must be desperate
  if she's trying to bring the
  dead back to life.

Judge:
  The d-dead...?

Edgeworth:
  Dahlia Hawthorne was
  the victim's deceased
  younger sister.

Edgeworth:
  She was killed in a crime
  5 years ago.

Judge:
  Killed in a crime...?
  Y-You don't mean...!?

Edgeworth:
  Yes. She was kidnapped...
  And killed. By Terry Fawles!

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  You said she was "killed"...
  But was she really?

Edgeworth:
  What are you implying...?

Mia:
  Of course, people thought
  she had died 5 years ago...

Mia:
  ...when she fell off of
  Dusky Bridge and was lost
  in the Eagle River.

Mia:
  However!
  Her corpse was never found!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  She was declared legally
  dead 5 years ago!

Edgeworth:
  As far as the law is
  concerned, Dahlia Hawthorne
  is officially dead.

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  But the fact remains that her
  body was never recovered!

Mia:
  Dahlia Hawthorne was
  14 years old, 5 years ago.

Mia:
  If she were still alive,
  she would be 19 now.

Mia:
  ...Melissa Foster.

Mia:
  I believe that's the same
  age you are!

Melissa:
  Ah...!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Even you couldn't...!
  Ms. Fey...!
  You're not saying...!

Mia:
  But I am.
  That's precisely what
  I'm saying.

Mia:
  This "witness" before us is
  the girl that was kidnapped
  and killed 5 years ago!

Mia:
  This girl is in fact
  Ms. Dahlia Hawthorne!

Judge:
  WHA...!
  WHAAAAAAT!

Armando:
  Ha...! Nice work...
  That was like tossing a
  grenade into a 3-alarm fire!

Armando:
  But unless you can tie all
  the loose ends together...

Armando:
  ...you're nothing but a
  hit-and-run arsonist.

Mia:
  I... I understand.

Mia:
  (If I can expose her true
  nature, I can turn this whole
  case on its head!)

Mia:
  (Now is my chance to make
  Mr. Edgeworth squirm...!)

Judge:
  Hmm... Hmm... Hmmm...

Judge:
  Witness!
  Just who are you anyway!?

Melissa:
  I... I... I'm...

Edgeworth:
  I didn't think it'd come
  to this.

Edgeworth:
  That's enough...
  You don't have to say anymore,
  witness.

Melissa:
  ...
  Yes.
  I understand.

Judge:
  Wh-What!
  Mr. Edgeworth!
  Explain yourself!

Edgeworth:
  Your Honor.
  I have an admission to make.

Edgeworth:
  I honestly never thought the
  defense would pursue the
  matter this far...

Judge:
  You don't...!
  You don't mean...!

Edgeworth:
  ...Yes. The prosecutor's
  office isn't filled with
  fools, you know.

Edgeworth:
  Naturally, we conduct full
  background checks on all
  of our witnesses.

Mia:
  Wh-What did he say...?

Armando:
  Ha...!
  It looks like the kid knew.

Armando:
  He knew her true identity
  from the get-go.

Mia:
  No way...!
  But then why...!

Armando:
  If you hadn't revealed her
  secret, he wasn't going to
  say anything about it.

Armando:
  All he wanted was her
  testimony, so he made
  a little trade.

Edgeworth:
  Let me introduce you to...

Edgeworth:
  ...the victim's younger
  sister, Ms. Dahlia Hawthorne.

Judge:
  But... But...
  I thought she died 5 years
  ago...?

Edgeworth:
  We thought so as well...
  But... Well, as you can see...

Mia:
  Why!? Why did she hide
  her identity for 5 years!?

Edgeworth:
  That has nothing to
  do with the current case.

Edgeworth:
  She was merely an accidental
  witness to a crime...

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  Accidental...?
  I don't believe that for
  a minute!

Mia:
  For the last 5 years, she's
  been playing the role of
  victim!

Mia:
  And now we find her acting
  suspiciously at another murder
  scene!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  ...Really, Ms. Fey!
  Your strategy is
  clearly obvious.

Edgeworth:
  You're trying to pin your
  client's crime on an innocent
  witness in order to win...

Edgeworth:
  ...At any cost.

Mia:
  H-How dare you!

Edgeworth:
  Please, let us take a moment
  to think.

Edgeworth:
  Five years ago, this girl was
  kidnapped and nearly killed.

Judge:
  Hmm...

Edgeworth:
  But even worse than that...
  5 years later...

Edgeworth:
  ...Dahlia Hawthorne lost
  something much more
  precious. Her big sister.

Edgeworth:
  Ms. Fey must be insane to
  even suggest that she
  murdered her.

Mia:
  Whaaaaat!?

Judge:
  ...I'm inclined to agree
  with the prosecutor's logic.

Judge:
  Ms. Fey!
  Do you have any evidence
  to back up your assertion!?

Judge:
  What possible reason would
  this witness have for killing
  her beloved sister!?

Mia:
  W-Well you see...

Mia:
  (I thought I was winning,
  but somehow he's turned it
  around on me!)

Armando:
  Ha...!

Armando:
  I think you need a little
  push in the right
  direction, Kitten...

  The defense is prepared
  to present evidence
  supporting our claim!

Mia:
  Ah! That wasn't me!
  It was this guy...
  This crazy coffee addict...

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  I think we've heard enough
  empty threats from you,
  old man.

Armando:
  Ha...!
  What makes you think
  they're empty, boy?

Edgeworth:
  Because your protégé looks
  like she's sweating bullets!

Mia:
  Ah...!
  (I AM sweating bullets!)

Armando:
  ...You think you're in a
  tough spot, huh?

Mia:
  Of course! Aren't I?

Armando:
  ...No. You've just arrived
  at the moment of truth,
  that's all.

Armando:
  Whether you win or lose...
  That's up to you.

Mia:
  (Up to me...?)

Edgeworth:
  *sigh*...
  The rashness of youth.
  How charming.

Mia:
  (This coming from someone
  younger than me!)

Judge:
  Now then, let's not waste
  any more time.
  ...Ms. Fey.

Judge:
  What motive would this witness
  have for murdering her own
  sister, Valerie Hawthorne?

xxx Present something wrong xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
x
x Mia:
x   *TAKE THAT!*
x
x Edgeworth:
x   ...What is this?
x   Is this the defense's idea of
x   a joke?
x
x Judge:
x   If so, I certainly don't
x   get the punch line...
x   Well? Ms. Fey?
x
x Mia:
x   Oh, that was...
x   The rashness of youth!
x
x Judge:
x   Th-The rashness of youth!?
x   And what is your point in
x   furthering such a stereotype!?
x
x Armando:
x   That witness stayed hidden
x   for 5 years, Kitten.
x
x Armando:
x   There must be a good reason
x   for that.
x
x Armando:
x   And somehow it must involve

*Present Victim's Note*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  ...The story starts after
  Terry Fawles escaped.

Mia:
  He called Valerie and
  told her he wanted to meet.
  This is the note she left...

Mia:
  It says, "Talk to Dahlia.
  Tell her this time, the
  whole truth must come out."

Mia:
  ...Valerie Hawthorne gave
  Dahlia a warning.

Mia:
  She told her she was going
  to reveal to the world the
  whole truth.

Judge:
  The whole truth...?

Mia:
  There was a dangerously
  important secret between
  Valerie and Dahlia.

Mia:
  That's the reason Dahlia felt
  she had to kill Valerie...

Mia:
  To keep her mouth shut
  permanently!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  A terrific story, Ms. Fey!
  If you like fiction, that is.

Edgeworth:
  Enlighten the court, Ms. Fey.
  What was this secret that
  was so important?

Edgeworth:
  Where's your evidence!?

Armando:
  Dahlia and Valerie Hawthorne,
  and Terry Fawles...

Armando:
  There's only one
  important secret that
  connects them all...

Mia:
  Oh, yes... I know this secret.

Mia:
  ...Your Honor!
  The defense would like to
  request further testimony.

Judge:
  Wh-What testimony?

Mia:
  Regarding the kidnapping
  5 years ago. We believe it
  will explain a lot of things.

Mia:
  Such as the nature of the
  important secret between
  the Hawthorne sisters!

Dahlia:
  Ugh...!

Judge:
  ...Very well.
  I'll grant your request for
  further testimony.

Judge:
  I know it will be painful for
  you, but can enlighten us once
  more, my little maple leaf?

Dahlia:
  Y-Yes, I-I'll try.
  Mr. Judge...

Mia:
  (Putting on the old charm
  one more time, Dahlia?)

Mia:
  (But this will be the last
  time you hide behind your
  womanly wiles!)

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- 5 Years Ago --

(1)
Dahlia:
  Five years ago, I was
  kidnapped by Mr. Fawles.

(2)
Dahlia:
  The ransom price was a raw
  diamond. My sister, Valerie,
  brought it to the bridge...

(3)
Dahlia:
  After she made the exchange,
  she shot Mr. Fawles in
  the arm!

(4)
Dahlia:
  That's when Mr. Fawles tried
  to kill me by shoving me off
  the bridge from behind!

(5)
Dahlia:
  I survived, but I was afraid I
  might be kidnapped again
  for my family's money...

(6)
Dahlia:
  So I decided to change
  my identity and start
  a new life...

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

Judge:
  Hmmm...

Edgeworth:
  ...The kidnapping left her
  emotionally scarred.

Edgeworth:
  With her sister's help, she
  left the Hawthorne family and
  started all over again.

Edgeworth:
  And we're to believe after
  all that, she murdered her
  sister? Preposterous!

Judge:
  Thank you, Mr. Edgeworth.
  ...Ms. Fey?

Mia:
  Y-Yes, Your Honor.

Judge:
  As you've heard, the witness
  is still traumatized from
  the kidnapping.

Judge:
  ...I'll ask you again to be
  extremely gentle in your
  cross-examination.

Mia:
  (...Mr. Edgeworth got the jump
  on me again...)

Armando:
  Ha...!
  If we're not allowed to fight,
  then let's twist some arms.

Armando:
  ...Listen up.
  We've still got that info...
  That ace up our sleeve.

Mia:
  ...What info?

Armando:
  Come on, Kitten.
  Don't say you've forgotten
  already.

Armando:
  The fact that the kidnapping
  5 years ago was staged!

Mia:
  (That's right, it was a fake
  kidnapping! Terry Fawles
  told us that in the lobby.)

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

Fawles:
  I do anything she says.
  Anything Dahlia says...

Mia:
  What you're saying is that
  the kidnapping 5 years ago
  was planned by...

Fawles:
  Yeah. Me and Dahlia...
  ...And Valerie, too.

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

Mia:
  (Yes! That's it!
  The fake kidnapping is your
  best shot, Mia!)

Mia:
  (That's her secret!)

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- 5 Years Ago --

(1)
Dahlia:
  Five years ago, I was
  kidnapped by Mr. Fawles.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Did you and Mr. Fawles
       have a relationship?

     Dahlia:
       ...Y-Yes.
       As a tutor...

     Mia:
       You were tutoring him?
       Mr. Fawles?

     Dahlia:
       N-No, of course not!
       Don't be ridiculous!

     Dahlia:
       Mr. Fawles came to the house
       to tutor ME!

     Mia:
       (That makes sense... 5 years
       ago, she was only 14.)

     Edgeworth:
       He probably came up with
       the kidnapping plan during
       that time.

     Edgeworth:
       The Hawthornes are in the
       jewelry trade and are quite
       wealthy, you see.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       Quite the clever fellow, that
       Mr. Fawles.

     Mia:
       (Did I hear him right!?
       Did he just call Mr. Fawles
       a clever fellow?)

(2)
Dahlia:
  The ransom price was a raw
  diamond. My sister, Valerie,
  brought it to the bridge...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       I heard the diamond is valued
       in the neighboorhood of
       2 million dollars.

     Judge:
       2 million dollars!?

     Dahlia:
       It was still uncut, so
       it was about the size of
       a pint of milk.

     Judge:
       HMMMMM!!!

     Judge:
       A 2 million dollar pint
       of milk... I don't know what
       to think about that!

     Edgeworth:
       The defendant demanded
       that her sister, Valerie,
       make the exchange.

     Edgeworth:
       Not as a detective,
       of course, but as an
       individual.

     Mia:
       By the way, I want to ask
       you, Mr. Edgeworth.

     Mia:
       Why do you think he wanted
       to make the exchange up
       there on that mountain?

     Mia:
       If he ever got surrounded,
       it would be hard to escape...

     Edgeworth:
       There's one thing a kidnapper
       wants to prevent, and that's
       police involvement.

     Edgeworth:
       In a place like that, it
       would be easy to tell if
       he was being followed.

     Edgeworth:
       With only one entrance to
       the mountain, he was
       ensuring his safety.

     Dahlia:
       What a wickedly clever man
       that Mr. Fawles is...

     Mia:
       (Yeah, right.
       It was all YOUR plan...)

     Dahlia:
       Anyway, Valerie brought the
       diamond to the mountain and...

(3)
Dahlia:
  After she made the exchange,
  she shot Mr. Fawles in
  the arm!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       That was a dangerous thing
       to do considering you were
       being held hostage.

     Dahlia:
       Yes, but...
       Actually, that saved my life.

     Judge:
       What do you mean?

     Dahlia:
       You see, Mr. Fawles was
       holding a knife in his
       right hand...

     Dahlia:
       Somehow, I just KNEW
       he was going to use it.

     Dahlia:
       I knew he was going to
       use that knife to kill me!

     Mia:
       ...!

     Dahlia:
       That's why my sister shot him!
       It was to save me!

(4)
Dahlia:
  That's when Mr. Fawles tried
  to kill me by shoving me off
  the bridge from behind!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       I'd like to hear more about
       what happened right at
       that moment!

     Dahlia:
       Well, when Mr. Fawles was
       shot in the right arm, he let
       go of me...

     Dahlia:
       I-I was dazed. I turned to try
       and run away, but Mr. Fawles
       turned to grab me as well...

     Dahlia:
       As I ran past, he and I locked
       eyes for a second, and he gave
       me a large, bloodthirsty grin.

     Judge:
       B-Bloodthirsty grin...
       Oooh...

     Dahlia:
       And in the next instant...

     Edgeworth:
       I advise the court to remember
       that the river is 18 feet deep
       and incredibly swift...

     Dahlia:
       I-I was a strong swimmer,
       but I was knocked out...

     Dahlia:
       When I came to, I had been
       carried away by the river
       to a strange place.

     Dahlia:
       I'll never forget that day.

     Dahlia:
       The crumbling bridge,
       nowhere to run...

     Dahlia:
       Then just one little shove
       from behind. That was it.

     Dahlia:
       Before my sister could
       catch me...
       ...I fell into the river.

(5)
Dahlia:
  I survived, but I was afraid I
  might be kidnapped again
  for my family's money...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       And that's why you
       hid your identity?

     Dahlia:
       Yes...
       I only told my sister.

     Judge:
       Valerie Hawthorne, eh.

     Dahlia:
       Yes, she's the only one who
       knew about me.

     Edgeworth:
       Meanwhile, legally, this
       witness has been deceased
       for 5 years.

     Dahlia:
       I... I didn't ever want
       something like that to
       happen to me again.

(6)
Dahlia:
  So I decided to change
  my identity and start
  a new life...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       And that new identity was
       "Melissa Foster", right?

     Dahlia:
       Yes, my sister helped me get
       the official paperwork
       taken care of.

     Mia:
       (That makes sense...)

     Mia:
       (Without an insider's help,
       doing all of the paperwork
       would've been impossible.)

     Dahlia:
       She was the only person left
       in the world I could count on.

     Dahlia:
       And you... You think I
       k-k-killed her...
       There's no way I could!

     Judge:
       Hmmmmm...!

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

Armando:
  It's the moment of truth
  for this witness, too.

Armando:
  Once the truth about this
  staged kidnapping comes out...

Armando:
  Everyone in the court will
  know how much of a Jezebel
  she really is!

Mia:
  (I've just got to prove that
  kidnapping was a hoax!)

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*Present Dusky Bridge Map* at (4)

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  You say that Mr. Fawles pushed
  you into the Eagle River...

Mia:
  However, that's hard to
  believe.

Dahlia:
  B-But it's true!
  I felt a push on my back...

Dahlia:
  I'm certain of it!
  It was Mr. Fawles!

Mia:
  I'm sorry... I guess I wasn't
  clear enough.

Mia:
  I shouldn't have said, "that's
  hard to believe." I should've
  said, "That's impossible."

Dahlia:
  I-Impossible...?

Mia:
  I ask that the court recall
  the condition of Dusky Bridge,
  now and 5 years ago.

Mia:
  That bridge hasn't changed one
  bit in these last 5 years.

Mia:
  If someone had pushed you
  from behind as you have
  claimed...

Mia:
  ...instead of being carried
  away by the river...

Mia:
  ...you would have been
  smashed by the bedrock
  below!

Mia:
  A most certain death.

Dahlia:
  ...

Mia:
  Do you understand now,
  Dahlia Hawthorne?

Mia:
  The very notion that my client
  pushed you from behind
  is impossible!

Dahlia:
  ...

Dahlia:
  Aaaaaah!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Your Honor, this event
  occurred 5 years ago!

Edgeworth:
  Why, for all we know, the
  water level in the river may
  have been higher back then.

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  But it's 40 feet from the
  bridge to the river!

Mia:
  A small change in the water
  level wouldn't have made a
  difference!

Edgeworth:
  Ugggh!

Judge:
  Y-You're right! If the events
  occurred just as the witness
  has testified...

Judge:
  ...then the defendant couldn't
  have pushed the witness
  into the river.

Judge:
  Young lady!
  What is the meaning of this!?

Dahlia:
  Uuuh!

Dahlia:
  I... I... I, err...
  You see, I...

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Just a moment, Your Honor!

Edgeworth:
  It's true that the witness
  testified that the defendant
  pushed her into the river...

Edgeworth:
  However! She never stated
  that she fell from the back
  end of the bridge!

Mia:
  What... What do you mean?

Edgeworth:
  After being shot in the
  arm, it's plausible that
  Mr. Fawles panicked!

Edgeworth:
  Therefore, he could have
  unwittingly pushed her off
  the side of the bridge!

Judge:
  If that's true, she would
  have fallen into the river!

Judge:
  Well, Miss Hawthorne!?
  Is Mr. Edgeworth's explanation
  correct...?

Dahlia:
  ...

Dahlia:
  Now that you mention it...

Dahlia:
  I do remember now.
  When I fell off the bridge...

Dahlia:
  ...my skirt got caught on one
  of the bridge's side wires!

Mia:
  You can't be serious!

Judge:
  Order! Order in the court!

Edgeworth:
  It seems Ms. Fey's assault
  has finally reached its
  conclusion.

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  (Not now, Mia...!
  This is no time to retreat!)

Mia:
  Unfortunately for you...
  this is just the start of
  Ms. Fey's assault!

Edgeworth:
  Wh-What?

Mia:
  I believe your reasoning
  went something like this,
  Mr. Edgeworth.

Mia:
  "After being shot in the
  arm, it's plausible that
  Mr. Fawles panicked!"

Mia:
  "Therefore, he could have
  unwittingly pushed her off
  the side of the bridge!"

Mia:
  However! Once again,
  I'm forced to say,
  "That's impossible!"

Edgeworth:
  R-Ridiculous!
  What's so impossible
  about it!?

Mia:
  Because your flawed logic
  contradicts the Court
  Record!

*Present Witness's Photo*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  Your Honor!
  All of the answers are
  right here in this photo!

Mia:
  Take a look at the wires
  supporting both sides of the
  bridge!

Mia:
  They extend up to about
  five feet off the ground...

Mia:
  It would be impossible to
  push someone off from there!

Dahlia:
  NNNNOOOOOOO!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  B-But let's remember
  the size and strength of
  the defendant!

Edgeworth:
  Wires like this wouldn't be
  a problem for him!

Edgeworth:
  He could have easily picked
  up a 14 year old girl and
  thrown her over!

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  So young, and already so
  forgetful, Mr. Edgeworth.

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles had been shot
  in the right arm.

Judge:
  Ah...!

Mia:
  And more importantly...

Mia:
  ...Valerie Hawthorne had
  her gun trained on him...
  at point-blank range!

Edgeworth:
  Ugh...!

Mia:
  So! Mr. Fawles throwing the
  witness off the bridge? That
  is clearly impossible!

Edgeworth:
  GWAAAAAAAHHH!

Judge:
  Order! Order!
  Wh-What is the meaning
  of this!?

Mia:
  Dahlia Hawthorne!

Mia:
  You jumped into the Eagle
  River intentionally!

Judge:
  What...!?
  What is this...!?

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Indeed! What do you mean
  by such a ridiculous remark!?

Dahlia:
  Y-Yes! It's ridiculous!

Dahlia:
  My sister was there
  to help me!

Dahlia:
  She had her gun and handcuffs.
  She could have saved me...

Dahlia:
  Jumping into a raging river
  like that...
  That would have been suicide!

Mia:
  *OBJECTION!*

Mia:
  Perhaps...
  But still, that's exactly
  what you did!

Mia:
  You were probably confident
  that you could handle
  the swift current.

Mia:
  But even more so...

Mia:
  ...the witness had a much
  more compelling reason for
  jumping into the river!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Oh? Then what was it!? What
  was so important that she'd
  want to jump into the river!?

Mia:
  The witness is still alive.
  This fact alone explains
  everything!

Mia:
  This is why she risked her
  life by jumping into the
  rapids of the Eagle River!

*Present Diamond*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  Five years ago...

Mia:
  ...something else disappeared
  along with Dahlia that day.

Mia:
  The item that Valerie brought
  up the mountain with her...
  The 2 million dollar diamond!

Dahlia:
  ...!

Edgeworth:
  AAAAAHHH!!
  N... No...
  It-It can't be...!

Mia:
  Yes. Dahlia had it all planned
  from the beginning!

Mia:
  The 2 million dollars...
  She was going to keep it
  all for herself!

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

Mia:
  She forced Mr. Fawles to help
  her fake the kidnapping...

          *BANG!*

Mia:
  At the last minute, she
  betrayed him and threw
  herself into the river...

Mia:
  ...with the ransom tucked away
  safely in her backpack...

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

Edgeworth:
  Why that's... that's simply
  ridiculous!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Y-Your Honor!
  Five years ago, the witness
  was only 14 years old!

Edgeworth:
  Do you really think a
  14 year old is capable
  of such a demonic plan!?

Mia:
  This woman IS a demon.

Mia:
  And there was one more person
  who helped make a demon out
  of her.

Mia:
  Her sister...
  Valerie Hawthorne.

Judge:
  Y-You mean the victim was
  involved in the kidnapping
  plot as well!?

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  But she was a detective then!
  You're saying she participated
  in her sister's kidnapping!?

Mia:
  Precisely!

Mia:
  I'm sure that it weighed
  heavily on her conscience for
  the past 5 years.

Mia:
  This is the sole reason
  behind the victim's murder.

Judge:
  What do you mean by that?

Mia:
  On the day of the murder...

Mia:
  ...after receiving the phone
  call from Mr. Fawles, Valerie
  called her sister, Dahlia.

Mia:
  And then she told her what
  she was planning to do.

Judge:
  "Planning to do"...?

Edgeworth:
  She was going to tell the
  whole truth... As she wrote
  in her note!

Mia:
  THAT is what sealed Valerie
  Hawthorne's fate...

Mia:
  THAT is when you hatched your
  demonic plan to kill two birds
  with one stone.

Mia:
  A plan that would ensure
  neither of your accomplices
  to the kidnapping would talk.

Mia:
  And THAT is why...

Mia:
  ...you killed your sister,
  Valerie Hawthorne!

  ...
  Hee hee...

Judge:
  Wh-Who is that!?
  Laughing at a time like this!

Dahlia:
  Forgive me.
  It's just hilarious...

Judge:
  W-Witness?
  Is that you?

Dahlia:
  You amuse me, woman!
  MS. MIA FEY...

Mia:
  ...!

Dahlia:
  You can certainly weave an
  exciting tale...

Dahlia:
  Naturally...
  you have the evidence
  to back it up, don't you?

Mia:
  Ev-Evidence...?

Dahlia:
  Evidence that I planned the
  kidnapping, of course...

Dahlia:
  That at 14, I plotted it with
  Mr. Fawles and my sister.

Mia:
  W-Well, I...

Dahlia:
  And one more thing.

Dahlia:
  What happened to the
  2 million dollar diamond?

Dahlia:
  If you can't provide evidence
  to at least show that...

Judge:
  Hmmmmm...
  Well, Ms. Fey?

Mia:
  I...
  I don't know...

Dahlia:
  What a joke.
  YOU, MS. FEY...
  Are you stupid or something?

Mia:
  Nnrgh...!

Mia:
  (How can I prove a fake
  kidnapping that happened
  5 years ago!?)

Mia:
  (I don't even have decisive
  proof of Valerie Hawthorne's
  murder...)

Judge:
  Well it seems...
  that we've come to the end.

Judge:
  To be honest, the witness's
  behavior does raise certain
  suspicions...

Judge:
  However, I am forced to reject
  the assertions made by the
  defense.

Dahlia:
  Of course you are.

Mia:
  (Is this it...?
  Is it really over...?)

Mia:
  (That girl has made a fool
  of me and there's nothing
  I can do about it!)

Armando:
  Ha...!

Armando:
  Without evidence the trial
  is over? Who decided that?

Mia:
  M-Mr. Armando!

Armando:
  Come on now, Kitten. Haven't
  you figured out that you
  can make your own rules?

Armando:
  For example, even if there's
  no evidence, there's still
  testimony!

Mia:
  (T-Testimony...?)

Armando:
  On the day in question,
  Dahlia Hawthorne murdered
  her sister, Valerie Hawthorne.

Armando:
  She hid her body in the trunk
  of Mr. Fawles's stolen car and
  then went to meet with him...

Armando:
  ...disguised as her sister,
  Valerie Hawthorne.
  That's what you think, right?

Mia:
  Y-Yes, that's right...

Armando:
  In that case, there's only
  one answer, right?

Armando:
  There is only one person
  left who can testify about
  Valerie Hawthorne's murder!

Mia:
  (Since there's no proof,
  there's only one thing left
  to do!)

Mia:
  (Who is the one person who
  can testify to that demon
  woman's crimes...?)

*Present Terry Fawles profile*

Mia:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Mia:
  Your Honor!
  The defense wishes to call
  a new witness!

Judge:
  A new witness?

Mia:
  Yes! We would like to hear the
  testimony of Terry Fawles!

Edgeworth:
  The defendant...!?

Mia:
  There's only one person that
  can shed any further light
  on the situation...

Mia:
  Only one person that knows
  what Dahlia's role in the
  kidnapping was...

Mia:
  Only one person that can say
  whether the person in the
  photo is Valerie Hawthorne...

Mia:
  ...or whether it was in fact
  her younger sister Dahlia,
  disguised as her.

Mia:
  There's only one person who
  can solve this riddle once
  and for all...

Mia:
  And that person is...
  Terry Fawles!

Judge:
  Well, Mr. Edgeworth?
  What is your take on this?

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  Why not?
  The prosecution has no
  objection.

Judge:
  Very well.

Judge:
  Bailiff!
  Bring the defendant to the
  witness stand!

Mia:
  (This is my last chance,
  Mr. Fawles...)

Mia:
  (My last chance to establish
  Dahlia's guilt...)

Mia:
  (You're all I have left!)

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

Judge:
  Defendant, you've heard
  everything that's been said
  up to this point, yes?

Fawles:
  Uhh... Umm...
  I don't believe it! No way!

Fawles:
  Dahlia died! Five years ago!
  Valerie betrayed me!

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles...

Mia:
  I don't know what she said
  to you 5 years ago, but one
  thing is clear.

Mia:
  Dahlia is very much alive.

Mia:
  And you were used.
  For 2 million dollars.

Fawles:
  That's... Not... True...

Judge:
  Mr. Fawles.
  There's only one question
  I want the answer to.

Judge:
  Two days ago on Dusky
  Bridge... who did you meet?

Judge:
  Was it Valerie Hawthorne?
  Or was it Dahlia Hawthorne?

Fawles:
  Dahlia... Dahlia...
  Did you... betray me?

Fawles:
  ...

Fawles:
  Five years ago she promised...
  She promised... Never, ever
  betray each other...

Dahlia:
  Terry...

Fawles:
  Dahlia!

Dawles:
  It-It's true!
  You are alive...!

Dahlia:
  You don't trust me anymore?
  That makes me sad.

Fawles:
  Tell the truth!
  The real truth!
  I... I believed in you!

Dahlia:
  ...
  I shouldn't NEED to say it.
  You should already know...

Fawles:
  ...!

Dahlia:
  But...
  There is one thing
  that I WILL say.

Dahlia:
  My life is in your hands
  right now, Terry.

Fawles:
  Dah...lia...

Judge:
  I will allow Mr. Fawles to
  testify once and once only.

Judge:
  Well then, Mr. Fawles.
  Yours will be the final
  testimony in this trial.

Fawles:
  ...

Judge:
  Witness!

Fawles:
  GAAAAAAAHHH!!!!

Judge:
  Eeeeek!
  I'm sorry!
  I apologize!

Fawles:
  Uwah! Uwah! UWAAAAH!!
  W-Water!
  P-Please! Water!

Mia:
  Hmm?

Fawles:
  Can't talk...
  Need water...

Armando:
  Ha...!
  Oh well, I guess it'll have
  to be my coffee instead.

Armando:
  At least it'll match the way
  he's probably feeling right
  now...

Armando:
  Darker and bitterer than
  Hell itself.

Fawles:
  UWAAAAAH...

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Who Terry Fawles Saw --

(1)
Fawles:
  That day... 4 PM...
  I stopped the car.
  I was in front of bridge...

(2)
Fawles:
  She wasn't there...
  So, I waited on bridge.

(3)
Fawles:
  I watched my car from
  bridge. I never put no body
  in that car!

(4)
Fawles:
  Finally, one woman came.
  She stood front of me.

(5)
Fawles:
  We talked...
  Then she left.

(6)
Fawles:
  That was... That was Valerie.
  Not my Dahlia!

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

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles!
  You're covering for her!

Mia:
  Do you think she would
  do the same for you...!?

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  That's enough, Ms. Fey!

Edgeworth:
  His last statement was a
  fitting way to end the final
  testimony of the trial...

Mia:
  ...!

Judge:
  Well then, Ms. Fey...
  Please proceed with your
  cross-examination.

Mia:
  (Is this how you want it to
  end, Mr. Fawles?)

Mia:
  (Another guilty verdict to go
  along with your death
  sentence!?)

Armando:
  There's only one person who
  can stop it... You, Kitten.
  ...I think.

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Who Terry Fawles Saw --

(1)
Fawles:
  That day... 4 PM...
  I stopped the car.
  I was in front of bridge...

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       According to the note, the
       meeting was supposed to
       take place at 4:30.

     Mia:
       You certainly arrived early,
       didn't you?

     Fawles:
       It was raining...
       Already dark, too...

     Mia:
       You waited on the bridge
       for 30 minutes?

     Fawles:
       ...

     Mia:
       Mr. Fawles...?

     Fawles:
       Eagle Mountain... That spot...
       Strong, strong memories...

     Mia:
       ...
       (Why did he just clam up?)

     Mia:
       (Could it be...
       he's hiding something here?)

(2)
Fawles:
  She wasn't there...
  So, I waited on bridge.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You were quite early, so you
       waited on the bridge, correct?

     Fawles:
       Yeah... I like waiting.
       I'm used to it.

     Armando:
       I'm sure he is. Zebra Boy
       waited 5 years to ask a
       single question...

     Armando:
       To find out why a woman
       betrayed him.

     Armando:
       To him, 30 minutes must've
       been like a blink of the eye.

(3)
Fawles:
  I watched my car from
  bridge. I never put no body
  in that car!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       You were watching the car?

     Fawles:
       That bridge. Other side is
       broken. Nobody can come
       from there.

     Fawles:
       So... I was watching car.

     Edgeworth:
       *sigh*...
       What else were you expecting
       him to do...?

     Mia:
       (I suppose that's the obvious
       thing to do, but...)

     Mia:
       (...something's bothering me.
       I'm getting that feeling...
       A contradiction?)

     Judge:
       I wonder what's on the other
       side of the broken bridge
       anyway?

     Edgeworth:
       No one lives there.

     Edgeworth:
       There's a small shrine up on
       the mountain, but that's it...

     Fawles:
       Anyway...! Nobody came...
       No car, nothing!

(4)
Fawles:
  Finally, one woman came.
  She stood front of me.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       Mr. Fawles.
       Think carefully now.

     Mia:
       Are you certain that it was
       Valerie Hawthorne?

     Fawles:
       Uh. Uh. Uh...

     Fawles:
       I never lie!
       It-It's the truth!

     Fawles:
       It was... Valerie!
       I remembered her face!

     Mia:
       Wait a minute. If you had
       remembered her face...

     Mia:
       ...then why did you make
       her wear a scarf as
       identification?

     Fawles:
       ...
       Uh.
       Sorry. I told a little lie.

     Mia:
       ......

     Fawles:
       But! The woman I met...
       She was different from
       woman standing here now!

     Fawles:
       She was different!
       It was Valerie!

(5)
Fawles:
  We talked...
  Then she left.

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       What did you talk to her
       about anyway?

     Fawles:
       ...

     Mia:
       Mr. Fawles!

     Fawles:
       Valerie told the truth.
       About the kidnapping
       5 years ago.

     Fawles:
       She said, "Someone needed
       to take the blame for it"...

     Fawles:
       "That was all I could
       think to do."
       She said that.

     Fawles:
       That's why she lied...
       Got me the death penalty...

     Edgeworth:
       And were you satisfied with
       that answer, witness?

     Fawles:
       Dahlia died...
       It was my fault.

     Fawles:
       But I don't really remember...

     Fawles:
       Maybe I did...
       Maybe I did push her in...

     Mia:
       ...!

     Fawles:
       It don't matter no more...

     Fawles:
       Either way... My Dahlia...
       My sweet Teen Angel... Dead.

     Mia:
       (But you just saw that
       she isn't dead!)

     Fawles:
       After Valerie talk to me on
       bridge...
       Nothing left to live for...

(6)
Fawles:
  That was... That was Valerie.
  Not my Dahlia!

     Mia:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Mia:
       How can you be so sure!?

     Mia:
       It was raining at the time,
       and sunset that day was
       at 5 o'clock.

     Mia:
       It would have already been
       pretty dark on that mountain
       at 4:30!

     Fawles:
       ...

     Mia:
       Please Mr. Fawles!
       This is your last chance!

     Mia:
       You've already taken the fall
       once for something you
       didn't do!

     Fawles:
       ...

     Fawles:
       That woman...
       It wasn't Dahlia.

     Edgeworth:
       Stop right there!
       What more needs to be said!?

     Judge:
       Hmmmmm.

     Mia:
       (Even if it means the death
       penalty. Even if it means
       taking the blame for murder...)

     Fawles:
       (You'll still do whatever is
       necessary to protect her...
       Won't you, Mr. Fawles?)

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

Armando:
  I know it's obvious, but...
  he's clearly lying.

Armando:
  He's been cursed...
  by Dahlia Hawthorne.

Armando:
  He'll probably go to his grave
  still believing in her.

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles...

Armando:
  Even if you can show he's
  lying, the poor guy will still
  be cursed...

Armando:
  You'll still have to point out
  the contradiction anyway.

Armando:
  That's the curse of being
  a defense lawyer, I guess...

Mia:

Mia:
  So when you got to the bridge,
  no one had arrived, huh?

Mia:
  So you waited on the bridge...
  You're sure of that?

Fawles:
  ...
  Yeah. I'm sure.

Mia:
  You're sure, huh...?
  Well then I'm sure too,
  Mr. Fawles...

Mia:
  I'm sure that you're lying.

Fawles:
  Huh!
  Uhh...
  Wah...

Fawles:
  Wah! Wah! WAAAH!!

Edgeworth:
  Oh? I would love to hear
  your rationale on this,
  Ms. Fey...

Mia:
  You want to know who
  arrived at the bridge first?

Mia:
  Just look at this photo.
  It's perfectly clear.

Mia:
  Obviously the person that came
  first would be the one at the
  end of the bridge, right?

Edgeworth:
  B-But that's the victim at
  the end of the bridge!

Mia:
  Precisely my point.
  In other words, Mr. Fawles...

Mia:
  You must have arrived at the
  bridge after she did.

Fawles:
  Nng...
  Urkkk... Ahhh...
  Ggggaah... Blah...

Mia:
  ...

Mia:
  Umm, Mr. Fawles.

Mia:
  Please don't get so worked up.
  We just want the truth.

Fawles:
  ...

Fawles:
  I got there around 4 o'clock.
  It's true.

Mia:
  ...!

Fawles:
  I... I had somewhere to go.
  A special place...

Judge:
  Did you go to this special
  place before you went
  to the bridge?

Fawles:
  Yeah...
  It's an old temple about
  15 minutes from the bridge.

Fawles:
  Five years ago, me and
  Dahlia... We promised each
  other...

Fawles:
  We swore we wouldn't
  betray each other...

Fawles:
  She brought a memento...
  To represent... our love.

Mia:
  A memento...?

Fawles:
  Five years ago, I hid it
  under base of tree there.

Fawles:
  It's a special memory for me.
  This is it... This is what
  I went to get.

Judge:
  This little bottle on a
  necklace is your memento?

Judge:
  It's quite charming...
  but it looks empty.

Mia:
  Your Honor!
  You heard what my client said.

Mia:
  He arrived at the scene
  at 4 o'clock.

Mia:
  But he then left his car
  unattended and walked away!

Mia:
  He was gone for approximately
  30 minutes!

Edgeworth:
  Urk...!

Mia:
  With that much time...

Mia:
  ...Dahlia Hawthorne could have
  easily hidden the body in the
  trunk of his car!

Edgeworth:
  N-NOOOOOOO!

Judge:
  Indeed...
  There certainly was enough
  time for it!

Mia:
  (I've still got a chance!)

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles!
  There's no mistaking it!

Fawles:
  ............

Fawles:
  Urp!

Mia:
  Huh?
  Mr. Fawles...!?

Fawles:
  Th-That's enough...
  Please...

Judge:
  W-Witness?

Fawles:
  I-I promised her...
  5 years ago...

Fawles:
  If it ever happens...

Fawles:
  ...that we can't trust
  each other no more...
  Then...

Fawles:
  ...we're supposed to...
  drink... bottle... Ugh...

Edgeworth:
  N-No! Stop the trial!
  Your Honor! We need a recess!

Fawles:
  I... I was stupid...
  Couldn't... keep... promise...

Fawles:
  So I did it...
  I... drank... this...

Mia:
  No! We are so close!
  Just a little more...

Mia:
  I was going to prove
  your innocence!

Fawles:
  No... Don't want that...
  Don't... trust... self...

Fawles:
  Maybe kill again...
  Kill sweet Dahlia... again...

Mia:
  Mr. Fawles!

Fawles:
  Mr. Ar... Armando...

Fawles:
  Th-Thanks...
  For the... coffee...

Mia:
  MR. FAAAAAAAAWLES!!!!

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

Mia:
  And so my first trial ended...
  Suddenly, and tragically.

Mia:
  It ended with no winners...
  Only losers.

Mia:
  I ended up with a wound that
  cut so deep into my soul,
  I thought it'd never heal.

Mia:
  I'm sure it was the same for
  the young prosecutor as well.

Mia:
  But one person...

Mia:
  The true criminal,
  Dahlia Hawthorne...

Mia:
  She left the courtroom with
  a secret smile on her
  demonically sweet face.

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

Armando:
  Unforgivable...
  That witch...

Mia:
  M-Mr. Armando...

Armando:
  We were so close to the
  truth. It was right there in
  front of us.

Armando:
  You were just a little
  too soft, Kitten...

Mia:
  It's my fault!
  It's all my fault that
  Mr. Fawles killed himself!

Armando:
  Don't cry, Kitten.
  You're going to make my
  coffee all salty.

Mia:
  I-I knew it...!
  I kn-knew I wasn't cut
  out for this...!

Armando:
  ...............
  Mia...

Mia:
  ...!

Armando:
  Don't you get it?
  You can't cry yet.

Armando:
  The only time a lawyer can
  cry is when it's all over.

Mia:
  M-Mr. Armando...

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

  No matter how tough the
  case... No matter how
  bitter the memories...

  ...they always fade over time.
  Then you file them away and
  eventually forget them...

  One year later, in this very
  same courthouse...

  I, myself, got wrapped up in
  "that case".

  Only after that, did Dahlia
  Hawthorne get put on trial
  for her crimes.

  The verdict that was
  ultimately handed down
  to her was...

  "Guilty", of course.

  Naturally, when the verdict
  was read, she had a perfect,
  angelic smile on her face.

  It was finally all over.
  At least, that's what I
  thought at the time.

  Unfortunately...

  I couldn't have been
  more wrong...

  It's been 5 years, but now
  something has happened that's
  made me remember all this.

  It is said that this sacred
  sword represents life itself.

  Though the branches may

February 6, 9:48 AM
Wright & Co. Law Offices

Maya:
  Hey, Nick.

Phoenix:
  Yeah? What is it?

Maya:
  You know how I've got
  spiritual powers, unlike you?

Phoenix:
  Um, sure...
  You are a spirit medium,
  after all.

Maya:
  But just like you, if I don't
  keep my powers sharp,
  they get dull, right?

Phoenix:
  Um... I guess so, yeah.

Maya:
  Glad you agree!
  OK, Pearly! You're up!

Phoenix:
  (Pearls...?)

Pearl:
  So! That's why we need to
  go on a special "Spiritual
  Hot Spot Tour", Mr. Nick!

Phoenix:
  ...Huh? I'm lost.
  What's this magazine you're
  shoving in my face?

Pearl:
  It's the New Year's issue of
  "Oh! Cult!", Winter Spiritual
  Locations Special!

Phoenix:
  ...Oh.
  (Pearls looks so happy.)

Maya:
  "Maximize your spiritual
  powers with just one night
  of intensive training!"

Maya:
  ...Oh! It sounds too good to
  be true!

Phoenix:
  I'll say.
  It sounds more like a scam
  to me.

Maya:
  It's at a spiritual retreat
  called "Hazakura Temple".

Maya:
  It's way up in the mountains,
  and I bet it's nice and cold.
  ...Just perfect for training!

Phoenix:
  (Now I definitely don't
  want to go...)

Maya:
  You know, I think I've heard
  of this temple before. It's a
  famous channeling dojo.

Maya:
  It's hard for even real spirit
  mediums like us to make
  reservations up there!

Phoenix:
  Reservations...?
  For a temple?
  Are you serious?

Pearl:
  Don't worry!
  I've already made special
  reservations, just for us!

Maya:
  Yeah! And I signed up for the
  "Special Course"!

Phoenix:
  Th-That's nice.
  And the timing couldn't
  be better.

Phoenix:
  ...Since we don't have a case
  right now anyway.

Maya:
  Alrighty then! It's settled!

Maya:
  Well, come on!
  Don't just stand there!
  Start packing your stuff!

Pearl:
  Yes, Mr. Nick!
  You'd better start packing
  your stuff!

Phoenix:
  Huh...?
  M-ME!?
  Why do I have to go!?

Maya:
  Well, we have to be
  accompanied by someone
  over 20 years old.

Phoenix:
  Hey! I don't have anything to
  do with spirit power. The only
  thing I can channel is a TV.

Phoenix:
  ...
  So, um, is there a heated pool
  at this "Hazakura Temple"?

Pearl:
  No, but you can stand
  under a freezing waterfall!

Phoenix:
  ...

Phoenix:
  Sorry, but I think I'll pass.
  I hate cold places.

Maya:
  Whaaat!? No way!
  How can you be so selfish!?

Pearl:
  Come on, Mr. Nick!
  Look at this place!
  Doesn't it look beautiful!?

Phoenix:
  Nope. Not going. I'm gonna be
  nice and toasty at home.......
  .................What the...!?

Pearl:
  Wh-What is it, Mr. Nick?

Phoenix:
  Let me see that magazine!

Phoenix:
  Th-This nun...

Maya:
  Is she a friend of yours
  or something, Nick?

Phoenix:
  (Th-This girl...
  I-It's...!)

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

Dahlia:
  My name is Dahlia Hawthorne.

Dahlia:
  I just want to say...
  It's an honor for me to be
  here in your noble presence.

Dahlia:
  Honestly, how can any woman
  ever count on you for
  anything?

Dahlia:
  ...You disgust me!

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

Phoenix:
  But...
  It can't be!

Phoenix:
  (She was found guilty and
  should still be in prison...)

Pearl:
  ...Mr. Nick?

Phoenix:
  ...
  I'll go.

Maya:
  Huh...?

Phoenix:
  Hazakura Temple...
  I said I'll go.

Maya:
  Yay!
  Isn't that great, Pearly!?

Pearl:
  Yes! Oh, thank you!
  Thank you, Mr. Nick!

Pearl:
  You'd do anything for Mystic
  Maya, right? Even walk over
  burning coals, right!?

*"Oh! Cult!" New Year's
Issue received from Pearls.*

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

Phoenix:
  (Dahlia Hawthorne...)

Phoenix:
  (I knew there was no way she
  could possibly be at that
  temple...)

Phoenix:
  (But, I just had to
  be see for myself...)

Phoenix:
  (...who this "nun"
  really was.)

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

February 7, 3:24 PM
Hazakura Temple
Main Gate

Maya:
  Brrrrr... It-It-It's so
  c-c-cold here, Nick!

Phoenix:
  Maybe you should put on
  something warmer for a change!

Maya:
  W-W-Well, it's supposed
  to be c-c-cold...
  It's t-t-training.

Maya:
  ...Ah-Achoo!

Phoenix:
  (Her teeth are chattering so
  loudly, it's all I can do to
  make out what she's saying...)

Pearl:
  Wow, Mystic Maya! So this is
  the famous Hazakura Temple!

Maya:
  P-P-P-Pearly...
  I-I-I-I...
  Ah-Achoo!

? ? ?:
  Well, well, well...
  How nice to see you here.
  Welcome to our temple!

Maya:
  Oh...! Th-Th-Thank you...
  Ah-Achoo!

? ? ?:
  Oh my, my, my...
  Thank you for coming
  all this way.

? ? ?:
  Come now, come now.
  You must have been cold.

Phoenix:
  What's with the past tense...?
  We're freezing into human
  popsicles as we spea--!

? ? ?:
  Ho ho ho.
  Well, we are high up in
  the mountains after all.

? ? ?:
  In any case, we shouldn't
  speak here.
  ...Please follow me inside.

Maya:
  Th-Thank you. I was starting
  to think I would pass--

? ? ?:
  Oh! Yes, yes!
  I almost forgot to
  introduce myself.

Bikini:
  I'm the head nun here at
  the temple. My name is Bikini.

Maya:
  B-B-B-Bikini...!?

Bikini:
  That's riiight!

Bikini:
  Actually, that's my
  "temple" name.
  What do you think?

Bikini:
  It's a tradition to have one,
  and I wanted something that
  has a nice image to it.

Bikini:
  So I thought, "Why not choose
  a bikini?" Besides, it makes
  me seem younger.

Bikini:
  Wa ha ha ha! Ho ho ho!

Maya:
  It certainly does!
  Oh, I signed up for your
  "Special Course"!

Bikini:
  Well, my, my, my.
  Quite brave of you
  considering how cold it is!

Bikini:
  Young people can be so
  reckless with their health!

Bikini:
  Don't blame me if you become
  one with those you channel.
  Wa ha ha! Ho ho ho!

Pearl:
  R-Reckless...?

Maya:
  "Wa ha ha"...?

Pearl:
  Maybe you should take it easy
  tonight, Mystic Maya...
  We can come back another day.

Maya:
  But you went through
  all that trouble to get
  reservations for m--

Bikini:
  Yes, yes, yes, that's right!
  You've come all this way, so
  please, enjoy yourselves!

Bikini:
  There's still time before
  supper, so why don't you
  have a look around?

EXAMINE
-------

+++ The gate +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   What do you think, Nick?
+   Pretty awesome gate, huh?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It sure is...
+   It looks pretty well
+   maintained, too.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   This thing kinda puts your
+   hometown to shame, Maya.
+
+ Maya:
+   Yeah... Well, a lot of things
+   have happened in Kurain
+   Village.
+
+ Maya:
+   We used to be a lot richer,
+   back when people hired us
+   to perform channelings.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Oh, I see... But now the place
+   looks a bit run down...
+
+ Maya:
+   Hmm... I guess I was just
+   born in the wrong time.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The Main Hall ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   That looks like the Main Hall
+   where we'll be staying
+   tonight.
+
+ Maya:
+   From here, it looks like one
+   of those ice hotels you
+   always hear about!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...They gotta have a heater
+   or something in there, don't
+   you think? I don't wanna die.
+
+ Maya:
+   I'm not worried, I brought
+   my hot-water bottle.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Did you bring one for me?
+
+ Maya:
+   What are you talking
+   about, Nick?
+
+ Maya:
+   Who carries around
+   2 hot-water bottles?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Brr! If the cold doesn't
+   kill me, the ice queen over
+   here will finish the job...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Bell tower +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   Oh, look! It's a cute
+   little bell tower!
+
+ Maya:
+   I absolutely love the
+   sound of a giant bell!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Oh?
+   So, which do you like better?
+   That or the sound of money?
+
+ Maya:
+   ...!
+   ......
+
+ Maya:
+   Sorry, but I'll take money
+   for the win, Nick.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Wh-What are you
+   apologizing for?
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Snowmobile +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   Oh look, it's one of those
+   snow motorcycle things!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Most people call that a
+   "snowmobile", you know.
+
+ Maya:
+   "Snow motorcycle things",
+   "Snowblowmeal".
+   Same thing.
+
+ Maya:
+   Hmm... Too bad we didn't
+   invite Desirée.
+
+ Maya:
+   I bet she could race like the
+   wind on this "Slowmobile"!
+
+ Maya:
+   Or maybe she'd give me ride
+   on this "Blowsnowbile".
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Argh!
+   I told you, it's "snowmobile"!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MOVE TO: "Main Hall"

February 7
Hazakura Temple
Main Hall

Maya:
  Th-Th-The Main Hall...
  I th-think it's even
  c-c-c-colder in here! Achoo!

Pearl:
  Ah! Mr. Nick!
  Do you smell that?
  It smells like meat and gravy!

Maya:
  Yeah, you're right! I guess
  it's pot roast for tonight!
  Yum!

Phoenix:
  ...Weird. I thought they would
  serve something a little
  more... well, traditional.

Maya:
  What are you talking
  about, Nick!?

Maya:
  You think monks and nuns
  just sit around eating rice
  gruel all the time!?

Pearl:
  Mystic Maya is right! Ooh! I
  hope there's mashed potatoes,
  too! I love mashed potatoes!

? ? ?:
  Ha ha ha...
  What a cute little acolyte!

? ? ?:
  Greetings to all of you.

Phoenix:
  Oh... Um, hello.

Phoenix:
  (Wow, this lady makes Maya
  look like a 6.8/10 on the
  weirdness scale.)

Maya:
  Your outfit...
  Did you come here for the
  Special Course, too...?

? ? ?:
  Ha, ha, ha...
  Unfortunately, no.
  Actually, I'm...

Pearl:
  Aaaaaaaaaah!

Pearl:
  Y-You're...!
  Y-You're...!

Pearl:
  You're Ms. Elise Deauxnim!

Elise:
  Yes, that's right...
  You know of me?

Pearl:
  M-M-My name...
  My name is Pearl Fey!

Pearl:
  I-I'm your biggest fan!

Maya:
  Who is she, Nick?

Phoenix:
  Hmm... I see it now...
  Zvarri! A fortune-teller...?

Pearl:
  I-I've got all your books,
  Ms. Deauxnim!

Elise:
  Ha, ha, ha...
  What a sweet thing to say.
  And please, call me Elise.

Phoenix:
  Um, "books"...?

Pearl:
  Mr. Nick, don't you know
  anything!? Don't you even
  know who this is?

Phoenix:
  Well, um...

Phoenix:
  ...An author, maybe?

Elise:
  Yes, and an illustrator.
  ...Of picture books.

Maya:
  Picture books, huh?
  Oh, now I get it...

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Walls/Sliding doors ++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I bet the writing on these
+   sliding doors are instructions
+   for spirit channeling...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Kinda like how we scribbled
+   math formulas on the bathroom
+   walls to remember them.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Except we couldn't go to the
+   bathroom during tests... And
+   I can't read these walls.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Stuff on the floor +++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There are straw zabuton
+   cushions arranged around
+   a hibachi brazier...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I haven't seen a layout like
+   this since I saw this really
+   old Japanese movie on TV.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...If it wasn't for this
+   hibachi, they'd probably
+   freeze to death.
+

+++ Altar ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's an altar. It looks a bit
+   old, but someone does a
+   good job taking care of it.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Speaking of altars, I remember
+   seeing one like this in Kurain
+   Village last year.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess they really do have
+   something to do with
+   spiritual power after all.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Large Magatama on the altar ++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There's a laughably large
+   Magatama on the altar.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   If I can see Psyche-Locks
+   with the tiny Magatama I've
+   got...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...I can only imagine what
+   kind of power this bad boy
+   has under his hood!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Left corner near the altar +++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's a stack of straw
+   zabuton cushions.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Maya told me this type of
+   zabuton is called "enza"...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I suppose if I'd never come
+   here, I'd have missed out on
+   all these new things.
+

PRESENT (TO ELISE)
------------------

*** Anything *******************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   Ms. Deauxnim?
*   What do you think about this?
*
* Pearl:
*   Mr. Nick!
*   Do you think Ms. Elise
*   is a suspect?
*
* Phoenix:
*   Huh...?
*
* Pearl:
*   You may be Mystic Maya's
*   special someone, but I won't
*   let you do this to Ms. Elise!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (A suspect? Why would I
*   suspect her of anything? It's
*   not like anything's happened.)
*
* Maya:
*   Isn't it cute, Nick? Pearly's
*   getting all overprotective of
*   her new friend.
*
********************************************

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

*AFTER TALKING TO ELISE*

Elise:
  Well, you'll have to
  excuse me now...

Elise:
  I have to go help with the
  dinner preparations.

Pearl:
  Wow! You mean you're
  cooking dinner tonight?

Elise:
  That's right. Would you
  like to help too, Pearl?

Pearl:
  Yes, yes!
  I want to help with
  whatever I can!

Phoenix:
  (Pearls looks like she just
  won the lottery...)

Maya:
  Oh, I'll help too, then...

Elise:
  ...No, it's fine.
  Please don't worry about it.

Elise:
  Feel free to relax and explore
  the area with your friend.

Maya:
  Huh!? But...

Elise:
  ...Oh, yes!
  Please take this. I think
  it will be of help to you.

Elise:
  It's a map of the area.
  We wouldn't want you to
  get lost now, would we?

Phoenix:
  (The "Inner Temple"...
  There it is, on the other
  side of the bridge...)

Phoenix:
  Well, if you insist, I guess
  we'll take this chance to go
  check out the other temple.

*Hazakura Temple Map added
to the Court Record.*

Pearl:
  OK! I'll see you two
  later then!

Pearl:
  Remember!
  You're not allowed to fight!

Maya:
  Come on, Nick! Let's go!
  At least we'll stay warm
  if we keep moving!

MOVE TO: "Main Gate"

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

February 7
Hazakura Temple
Main Gate

Maya:
  Huh? Where did
  Sister Bikini go?

Phoenix:
  I guess she went to the
  Inner Temple... To go
  help that other nun out.

Maya:
  Oh, right... I think her name
  is... Iris?

Phoenix:
  Y-Yeah...
  That was it.

Phoenix:
  (I want to find out who
  Iris really is, but I'm scared
  of what I'll find...)

Maya:
  ...?

MOVE TO: "Suspension Bridge"

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

February 7
Dusky Bridge

Maya:
  Wow! Look at this broken
  down old bridge, Nick!

Phoenix:
  Y-Yeah, and look at that
  big canyon below us.

Maya:
  Hey! There's a river down
  there! It looks like it's
  flowing real fast!

Maya:
  ...What's wrong, Nick?
  You look like you've
  seen a ghost!

Phoenix:
  I-I'm just not very good
  with heights...

Maya:
  Oh...
  Hey! I've got it!

Maya:
  Maybe you should face your
  fear and try hurling yourself
  off the edge?

Maya:
  You know!
  One... Two... Three... Jump!

Maya:
  It might be just what
  you need to get over
  your fear of heights!

Phoenix:
  ...Yeah, death is a real
  good way to overcome
  phobias alright.

Phoenix:
  Anyway, it sure looks like a
  rickety bridge.

Maya:
  Can't argue there.

Maya:
  That's probably why
  it's called, "Dusty Bridge".

Phoenix:
  Read it again, Maya.
  It says, "Dusky Bridge".

Maya:
  Well, it's practically
  the same thing.

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Cliff on the other side ++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It looks like it's about
+   20 yards to that cliff
+   over there.
+
+ Maya:
+   I guess that's where I'll be
+   training tonight.
+
+ Maya:
+   Do you want to train
+   with me, Nick?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   And do the Special Course?
+   I think not.
+
+ Maya:
+   But it'd be so great if you
+   had spiritual powers, too!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Really? "I see dead people"
+   sounds more like a
+   cause for alarm to me...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Wooden sign on the left side +++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There's a narrow path going
+   off in a different direction
+   than that of the Main Hall.
+
+ Maya:
+   The sign here is so old, the
+   text seems to have vanished.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   The path leads to a wooden
+   staircase that goes down to
+   the bottom of the canyon.
+
+ Maya:
+   OK, I'll write, "wooden
+   staircase" on it then.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...Do you really think that
+   is necessary? You'd have to be
+   blind not to see the stairs.
+
+ Maya:
+   Well, it can't hurt.
+   Just pass me a pencil, OK?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Graffiti is a crime, Maya.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The bridge +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   Come on, Nick!
+   Why don't we hop across
+   the bridge. It'll be fun!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I'm not so sure... It looks
+   like a bunny hopping across
+   the bridge would destroy it.
+
+ Maya:
+   OK, Nick. Then let's try to
+   find a cute little white
+   bunny and test your theory.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (That right there sums up
+   the fundamental difference
+   between sane and insane.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Stone boulder ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Some letters are engraved
+   into a roughly cut boulder.
+
+ Maya:
+   "D-U-S-T-Y Bridge", huh?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It says, "Dusky"!
+   "Dusky Bridge"! OK?
+
+ Maya:
+   C'mon, Nick! Take a look at
+   that bridge and tell me it's
+   not supposed to be "Dusty"!
+
+ Maya:
+   This sign is obviously wrong,
+   and I'm gonna fix it!
+   Now give me a pencil, Nick!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Do I look like a pencil holder
+   to you?
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Red public phone +++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   I can't believe there's
+   a public phone here.
+   Who would ever use it?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   The people who live here, I
+   guess. I doubt they have any
+   real phones there.
+
+ Maya:
+   Yeah, but it took like
+   20 minutes to walk here
+   from the Main Hall!
+
+ Maya:
+   ...
+
+ Maya:
+   It would've been smarter of
+   them to build the Main Hall
+   here, don't you think?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...Maybe you should work
+   on channeling someone who
+   makes logical sense, Maya.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MOVE TO: "Inner Temple Gate"

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

February 7
Inner Temple Gate

Maya:
  Whoa, that bridge was shaking
  like jello in an earthquake.

Phoenix:
  ...

Maya:
  And at least half of the wood
  on that rickety bridge was
  rotting, I'd bet.

Phoenix:
  ...

Maya:
  Not to mention the last part
  only had like one board
  left on it!

Phoenix:
  ...

Maya:
  What's wrong with you?
  Your face is all green.

Phoenix:
  C-Can you not pick on me
  for a second?

Phoenix:
  I'm still trying to get over
  the shock that we made it
  safely across that death trap.

Maya:
  Yeah, I guess I'm a bit
  surprised, too...

Maya:
  Yikes! That "temple" is in
  bad shape. It looks like it
  could collapse anytime...

Phoenix:
  I guess people don't use
  it too often.

Phoenix:
  Is this really where you're
  going to train tonight?

Maya:
  That has to be it.

Maya:
  It's kinda creepy around
  here... Like a ghost might
  jump out at you or something!

Phoenix:
  (A spirit medium afraid of
  ghosts...? Isn't it ironic,
  don't you think?)

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ The bridge +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I don't care how much you
+   pay me, I don't want to cross
+   that bridge again.
+
+ Maya:
+   No worries, Nick. No one is
+   offering you any money.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That's because no reasonable
+   person would call that pile
+   of popsicle sticks a bridge!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   The latter half of it was
+   nothing more than a few planks
+   of wood and some string!
+
+ Maya:
+   Hey, if we want to get back,
+   we've got no choice but to
+   cross it again, you know.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Maybe I'll just stay... I've
+   always dreamed of living in
+   a little shack in the woods.
+
+ Maya:
+   ...Wow, you really are
+   scared, aren't you?
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Suspension wire ++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   It looks like this bridge
+   is suspended by 4 of
+   these wires.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...They're reeeally thin.
+   Shouldn't they be just a
+   little thicker...?
+
+ Maya:
+   Oh, stop it!
+   You're such a worrywart, Nick!
+
+ Maya:
+   If the bridge were really
+   going to collapse...
+
+ Maya:
+   ...I'm pretty sure the boards
+   would break before these
+   wires ever did!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Maya:
+   What's wrong?
+   You're turning into an
+   over-ripe avocado again.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Buddha statues +++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   Oh, wow!
+   Look at these neat
+   Buddha statues.
+
+ Maya:
+   Maybe I'll take one home
+   with me.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Maya!
+
+ Maya:
+   But there are so many.
+   They wouldn't notice if
+   I took just one.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Are you kidding?
+   Of course they'll notice!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   What are you gonna
+   do with one of those anyway?
+
+ Maya:
+   Put it in the office
+   of course!
+
+ Maya:
+   We can trade that wooden
+   statue in the office reception
+   area for one of these!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (You know, come to think of
+   it, where did that wooden
+   statue come from anyway...?)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Incinerator ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   Hey! There's a giant robot
+   buried in the snow!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Well, there's something
+   buried in the snow, but...
+   I think it's an incinerator.
+
+ Maya:
+   Oh... Hee hee.
+   But you've gotta admit it
+   looks a lot like a robot.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Um, sure... Anyway, I don't
+   think it gets used much.
+   It's looking pretty rusty.
+
+ Maya:
+   Hey, Nick!
+   Do you think this Giant
+   Robo-cinerator can walk?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I told you! It's not a robot!
+   ...And it's not especially big
+   either.
+
+ Maya:
+   Bah, you have no imagination.
+   I thought it'd be real neat if
+   you had to beat it to advance.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (A fight between a lawyer and
+   an overgrown furnace? Who'd
+   ever pay to see that!?)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Yellow gate ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   Hey! A half-opened gate!
+   That's practically a welcome
+   mat!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Yeah, except the sign on
+   here says, "No Entry".
+
+ Maya:
+   Umm, Nick.
+
+ Maya:
+   Rules are made to be
+   broken, you know.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...You expect a lawyer to
+   go along with that?
+
+ Maya:
+   Oh, come on! You're such
+   an old lady sometimes!
+   Let's just go!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Don't blame it on me when
+   Sister Bikini puts a curse
+   on you.
+
+ Maya:
+   ...
+
+ Maya:
+   Now you've got me scared.
+   Um, let's just forget about
+   it, OK?
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Wooden log on left with sign +++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   Looks like there's something
+   written on it.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I can't read it, but if I had
+   to take a good guess, I'd
+   say it says, "Inner Temple".
+
+ Maya:
+   What's the point of a sign
+   if you can't read it?
+
+ Maya:
+   Must be tough for the mailman
+   when he's delivering here.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (I guess the sign is a good
+   indication of how long this
+   place has been here...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The gate +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   So that's the Inner Temple
+   up ahead, huh?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It looks kinda run-down.
+
+ Maya:
+   Well, it wouldn't be very
+   temple-like if it was all
+   bright and shiny.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   So you're training here
+   tonight, huh?
+
+ Maya:
+   Yup!
+   Then everyone'll see my
+   spiritual powers!
+
+   ...Uuurrrgh...ggnngh...ggh...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Sounds like your stomach
+   wants to show off its
+   digestive powers instead...
+
+ Maya:
+   I wonder if that roast
+   is ready yet?
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MOVE TO: "Training Hall"

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

February 7
Inner Temple
Training Hall

Phoenix:
  Man, look at this place...
  It's just a tiny,
  freezing-cold room.

Phoenix:
  So this is where you'll both
  be training, huh...

Maya:
  Huh?
  What do you mean, "both"?
  I'm the only one.

Phoenix:
  Really?
  But I thought...

Maya:
  Pearly's just a little kid.
  She couldn't handle this
  kind of intense training.

Phoenix:
  (So says the girl who I can
  barely hear over her bones
  chattering...)

Maya:
  Anyway... The real training
  room must be behind that
  door over there.

Maya:
  Yeah, I get the feeling it's
  back there, definitely.

Phoenix:
  (If only because the cavern
  behind that door is giving off
  a real supernatural feel...)

? ? ?:
  Um...

? ? ?:
  Excuse me, but...
  Who are you...?

? ? ?:
  ...Ah!
  ...

Phoenix:
  Y-You're...

Maya:
  Hi there! We're just looking
  around since we're going to
  be staying here tonight...

? ? ?:
  ...

Maya:
  ...?
  Is something wrong?

? ? ?:
  Uh, er, no!
  It-It's nothing...

Maya:
  I wonder why she spaced out
  like that. Don't you, Nick?

Phoenix:
  Uh...
  D-Did you say something,
  M-Maya?

Maya:
  ...
  Not you too, Nick...

Iris:
  I... M-My name is Iris.
  I'm one of the nuns here
  at this temple.

Maya:
  I'm Maya Fey.
  It's a pleasure to meet you!

Iris:
  The pleasure is mine...

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  Oh, er, please excuse me!
  I have some... um, chores
  to attend to.

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

Maya:
  She sure is beautiful...
  and a bit spacey, I guess...

Maya:
  I guess she's just not used
  to talking with urban
  sophisticates like us.

Phoenix:
  ...

Maya:
  Nick?

Phoenix:
  (That girl...
  It-It can't be, but...)

Maya:
  ...?

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Dresser drawers ++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   Look at this antique dresser.
+   I wonder if there's anything
+   valuable inside.
+
+ Maya:
+   Let's have a look...
+
+ Maya:
+   Hmph... Nothing!
+   Just a bunch of clothes.
+
+ Maya:
+   Hey, Nick.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+   Huh! Oh, sorry.
+   I was just... thinking.
+
+ Maya:
+   Oh? About Iris, I bet!
+   Looks like you've been
+   bitten by the love bug, Nick!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Sacred cavern entrance +++++++++++++++++
+
+ Maya:
+   The actual training area must
+   be on the other side of this
+   door. I wonder what it's like.
+
+ Maya:
+   Phooey...
+   It's locked.
+
+ Maya:
+   Come on, Nick!
+   You know you want to
+   open it for me!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...I can't.
+
+ Maya:
+   ...
+
+ Maya:
+   You've been in kind of a bad
+   mood lately, haven't you,
+   Nick?
+
+ Maya:
+   ...Zvarri!
+   I know what it is!
+   I-R-I-S.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Maya:
+   Ha ha ha ha ha!
+   */Iris and Nick, sitting
+   in a tree! K-I-S-S-I-N-G!*/
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Hanging scroll +++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (A hanging scroll...
+   It doesn't look that
+   old either...)
+
+ Maya:
+   AAAAAAH!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   AAAAAAAAACK!
+   Wh-What is it!?
+   Why did you scream like that!?
+
+ Maya:
+   Th-This scroll...!
+
+ Maya:
+   It-It's my mother...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Wh...
+   Whaaaaaaaat!?
+
+ Maya:
+   ...It's Misty Fey.
+   The Master of the Kurain
+   School of Channeling...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Are... Are you sure?
+
+ Maya:
+   Yes...
+
+ Maya:
+   The crest at the top
+   of the scroll...
+
+ Maya:
+   That's the special mark of
+   the Master of our tradition.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (So that's what the mark
+   means...)
+
+ Maya:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   What is it?
+
+ Maya:
+   N-Nothing...
+
+ Maya:
+   It's just that... I last saw
+   her over 15 years ago...
+
+ Maya:
+   If it wasn't for that crest...
+   I wouldn't have even known
+   it was her.
+
+ Maya:
+   My own mother... And I can't
+   even recognize her face.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Maya...

+ *Hanging Scroll added

+++ Hanging scroll (again) +++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's a hanging wall scroll
+   showing Maya's mother,
+   Misty Fey.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's not that old.
+   That crest at the top is the
+   official mark of the Master.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I wonder if this temple has
+   some sort of connection to
+   the Fey family...
+
+ Maya:
+   I think it does, actually.
+
+ Maya:
+   Supposedly, it was founded by
+   a branch family member of
+   the Kurain School.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (I'll have to ask Bikini in
+   more detail when I get the
+   chance...)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (About Maya... And the
+   Fey family in general.)

MOVE TO: "Suspension Bridge"

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

February 7
Dusky Bridge

Maya:
  Whew, we managed to make
  it across Dusty Bridge.

Phoenix:
  ...

Maya:
  Nick, you look green.
  Are you feeling alright?

Phoenix:
  ...

Maya:
  Hey! What's wrong with you?

Maya:
  Ever since we met Sister Iris
  at the Training Hall, you've
  been really quiet.

Phoenix:
  Huh!? Oh, um. Sorry...

? ? ?:
  Hey, you! ...Wait up!

Maya:
  ...?
  You think he's yelling at us?

Phoenix:
  He must be.
  There's no one else around...

? ? ?:
  Would you mind moving?
  You're standing right in
  my way.

? ? ?:
  ...
  Ah!

Maya:
  Hey!
  I know you! You're...

? ? ?:
  Whoa!
  Sorry!
  Gotta run!

? ? ?:
  ...See ya!

Phoenix:
  H-Hey!
  Wait a minute!

? ? ?:
  Oh, uh, nice to meet you.
  ...I'm Laurice Deauxnim.

Phoenix:
  Liar! You're Larry!
  Your clothes may change,
  but you're still the Butz.

Butz:
  Shaddup!

Butz:
  I'm... I'm... Lauriiiiice!

Butz:
  And I'm just here to do a
  sketch of Dusky Bridge!

Maya:
  So... it really is our Larry.
  ...Not that I get why he's
  pretending to be someone else.

PRESENT (TO BUTZ)
-----------------

*** Maya Fey profile ***********************
*
* Butz:
*   Wow! You're even cuter than
*   the last time I saw you.
*
* Maya:
*   Oh, really!?
*
* Butz:
*   Yeah, you look like a
*   totally different person!
*   Don't you think so, Nick?
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Maybe it's 'cause we're
*   always together, but she looks
*   pretty much the same to me.)
*
********************************************

*** Mia Fey profile ************************
*
* Butz:
*   Hey, I remember her!
*   That's Maya's big sister!
*
* Maya:
*   Wow! You really do remember!
*
* Butz:
*   Yeah, who could forget!
*   A couple of gorgeous sisters!
*   Hubba hubba!
*
* Maya:
*   You hear that, Nick!
*   Gorgeous!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Oh yeah... That's right.
*   When I defended Larry...)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Mia was still alive...)
*
********************************************

*** Pearl Fey profile **********************
*
* Butz:
*   I haven't seen her in a
*   while, so I bet she's gotten
*   a lot bigger.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Well, it's only been 5 months
*   since we celebrated Ron's
*   non-guilty verdict.
*
* Butz:
*   Maybe so, but kids these
*   days grow up so fast.
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...She hasn't changed a
*   bit as far as I can tell.
*
* Butz:
*   Come on, Nick...
*   I really doubt that.
*
* Butz:
*   You just don't know 'cause
*   you don't pay enough
*   attention, that's all.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Sometimes I really worry
*   about what goes on inside
*   this guy's head...)
*
********************************************

*** Bikini profile *************************
*
* Maya:
*   She seems really motherly,
*   doesn't she?
*
* Butz:
*   What do you mean "seems"
*   motherly? She IS my mother.
*
* Maya:
*   ...She's your WHAT!?
*
* Butz:
*   I'm gonna have to take a
*   pass on answering that one.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Wait a second. Why is he
*   getting off so easy this
*   time...!?)
*
********************************************

*** Elise Deauxnim profile *****************
*
* Butz:
*   Elise is really something.
*   She's like a mother to me.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Yeah, you can tell from the
*   kindness reflected in her
*   eyes.
*
* Butz:
*   When I first looked into her
*   eyes, I just couldn't help it.
*
* Butz:
*   I started blabbing about all
*   the bad things I had done
*   in my life.
*
* Butz:
*   She just laughed that gentle
*   laugh of hers and listened!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Are you sure she wasn't
*   just laughing at you...?)
*
********************************************

*** Iris profile ***************************
*
* Butz:
*   Whoo yeah! Her!
*   My little Iris!
*
* Maya:
*   She's really pretty.
*
* Butz:
*   This girl... She's perfect!
*   She's exactly my type!
*
* Butz:
*   I wonder if she would model
*   for me. I want to draw a
*   portrait of her.
*
* Maya:
*   Yeah, you always liked those
*   model types, didn't you Larry?
*
* Maya:
*   ...Hey, wait a sec!
*   Didn't you say you were
*   swearing off women...?
*
* Butz:
*   Huh!?
*   Yeah, that's right.
*   Of course I have!
*
* Butz:
*   I have... basically.
*   But...
*
* Maya:
*   "But"...?
*
* Butz:
*   But... Iris is different.
*
* Butz:
*   I feel like...
*   I feel like I still have one
*   chance left at the dream...
*
* Phoenix:
*   (This guy will never change.)
*
********************************************

*** Anything else **************************
*
* Butz:
*   Hey, I know I may not look
*   like it, but I'm an artist.
*
* Butz:
*   I refuse to look at anything
*   that doesn't have a radiant
*   or beautiful motif.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Picky, picky, aren't you...?)
*
********************************************

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

*AFTER TALKING TO BUTZ*

Pearl:
  Everyone!

Maya:
  Hey! Pearly!

Pearl:
  Dinner preparations are
  complete!

Pearl:
  Please come quickly to
  the Main Hall!

Maya:
  Alright!
  I can't wait to dig in,
  Pearly!

Pearl:
  I'm going to go to the Inner
  Temple and call Sister Iris!

Pearl:
  I also want to have a look at
  where Mystic Maya is going
  to be training...

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

February 7, 7:46 PM
Hazakura Temple
Main Hall

Maya:
  Boy am I stuffed...

Phoenix:
  Are you sure it's alright
  to eat that much before
  your training?

Maya:
  Well, this kind of training is
  a battle of endurance.

Pearl:
  Mystic Maya... Please don't
  do anything that might put
  your health at risk.

Maya:
  Ha ha ha.
  No pain, no gain, I guess.

Pearl:
  Nngh...
  I'm still worried about you...

Bikini:
  Well, well, well. Let's not
  dilly-dally shilly-shally. You
  must get ready for tonight.

Elise:
  Good luck.
  ...Maya.

Maya:
  Alright! Here I go!
  I'll see you all tomorrow,
  I guess!

Bikini:
  Iris, please ring the bell at
  10:00 for lights out, alright?

Iris:
  Yes, Sister Bikini.

Bikini:
  And then, after you ring the
  bell, I want you to come join
  us at the Training Hall.

Iris:
  I understand, Sister Bikini.

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

Phoenix:
  (Maya and Bikini really seem
  excited about this training
  thing tonight...)

Elise:
  ...Well, Pearl? What are you
  going to do tonight?

Pearl:
  Well, umm...

Elise:
  If you'd like, you can
  come to my room.

Elise:
  Perhaps we can read some
  books together.

Pearl:
  R-Really!?
  I'd love to!

Pearl:
  I, umm...
  I'm not very good at reading.

Elise:
  Ha ha ha.
  Well then, would you like to
  practice reading with me?

Pearl:
  Ah! I'd love to!

Phoenix:
  (Pearls is absolutely smitten
  with Ms. Deauxnim...)

Phoenix:
  So Larry, what are you
  going to do?

Butz:
  Huh... Me?
  Um, well...

Butz:
  I'm just gonna hang out in
  my room. I can't stand the
  cold at all.

Phoenix:
  (I totally hear you there.)

Pearl:
  Um, Ms. Elise?
  So, for example, how do you
  read this?

Elise:
  It says, "gravely"...
  That's kind of a tough word.

Pearl:
  Oh! OK!
  And what about this word?

Elise:
  That's another tough one.
  It says, "roast".

Phoenix:
  (What kind of a book is
  she reading anyway...?)

Pearl:
  Well, I'm going to go wash
  the dishes and help clean up.

Pearl:
  I'll go visit you when
  I'm done, Ms. Elise!

Phoenix:
  (Well, not much to do except
  head to my room and huddle
  under the covers, I guess...)

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

February 7, 9:12 PM
Hazakura Temple
Main Hall

Phoenix:
  (Ugh... It's a whole different
  type of cold up here in
  the mountains!)

Phoenix:
  (Argh... Why couldn't the
  nearest bathroom be just a
  little closer to my room...?)

? ? ?:
  ...Mr. Wright?

Phoenix:
  Yaaaaaaah!

Phoenix:
  Oh! Ah, Ms. Deauxnim!
  Are you going to use the
  bathroom, too?

Elise:
  Um, no. But...
  Have you seen Pearl?

Phoenix:
  No... Not since after dinner.

Phoenix:
  I thought she said she was
  going to go to your room...

Elise:
  I know...
  But she never showed up.

Elise:
  I-I'm going to go
  look for her.
  ...Excuse me.

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

Phoenix:
  (Ms. Elise Deauxnim...
  A woman as mysterious in
  origin as her last name...)

Phoenix:
  (But...)

Phoenix:
  (The really mysterious
  one is...)

Iris:
  Oh...

Phoenix:
  Ah...!
  S-Sister Iris...!

Iris:
  G... G-Good evening...

Phoenix:
  (The real mysterious
  one is this girl...!)

Iris:
  Um, are you on your way
  to the bathroom too,
  Mr. Wright?

Phoenix:
  (...I can't let this chance
  pass me by!)

Phoenix:
  (I should try to talk with
  her... And maybe get some
  answers.)

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

MOVE
----

Phoenix:
  ...It's freezing cold out
  there. And dark, too.

Phoenix:
  There's nothing I need to
  do, so I think I'll just stay
  roasty-toasty in here.

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

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

*AFTER TALKING TO IRIS*

Iris:
  Ah...

Phoenix:
  Is something wrong?

Iris:
  I-I didn't realize it was so
  late. I have to go and ring
  the bell for lights out...

Phoenix:
  (I guess it's almost 10:00
  now, huh?)

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  Um... Mr. Wright?

Phoenix:
  ...Yes?

Iris:
  If it's alright with you...
  I would like you to have this.

Phoenix:
  But this is your hood...

Iris:
  It has the power to protect
  you from evil spirits.

Phoenix:
  (Come to think of it,
  Sister Bikini was wearing
  one of these, too...)

Iris:
  I pray for your safety
  on this dark, cold night.

*Iris's Hood received
from Iris.*

Iris:
  I'm sorry, but I must
  bid you goodnight.

Phoenix:
  Wait a minute,
  Sister Iris...

Iris:
  Y-Yes...?

Phoenix:
  Just now, you called me
  by my name...
  You said, "Mr. Wright".

Phoenix:
  How did you know my name?
  I never introduced myself
  to you.

Iris:
  Th-That's...

Phoenix:
  ...Sister Iris.
  Please, tell me the truth.

Phoenix:
  You and I...
  Have we ever met before?

Iris:
  ...

*5 PSYCHE-LOCKS*

Phoenix:
  I-Iris...

Iris:
  O-Oh!
  It-It's almost 10:00...

Iris:
  Perhaps we can speak again...
  tomorrow.

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

*gong* *gong* *gong*

Phoenix:

  She does know me...)

  YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Phoenix:
  (Wh-What the...!?)

Phoenix:
  (That blood-curdling scream
  came from the courtyard!)

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

February 7, 11:06 PM
Hazakura Temple
Courtyard

Phoenix:
  (That scream... I'm sure
  it came from around here...)

Phoenix:
  ...Aaaah!

Phoenix:
  (S-Someone's there... On the
  ground...!)

Phoenix:
  M-Ms. Deauxniiiiiim!

  ...*squish*

Phoenix:
  (...I just stepped on
  something soft.)

Bikini:
  Hey! Don't step on my
  tummy like that!

Phoenix:
  Wh-What are you doing
  lying there in the snow!?

Bikini:
  I was passed out!
  What do you think!?

Phoenix:
  So that blood-curdling
  scream was you...?

Bikini:
  F-Forget about that!
  H-Hurry up and call
  the police!

Phoenix:
  Is there even a phone in
  the Main Hall?

Bikini:
  No, but we still get reception
  up here in the mountains!

Bikini:
  You must have a cell
  phone on you, right!?

Phoenix:
  I, um... I didn't bring it
  with me--

Bikini:
  Oh, you're useless!

Bikini:
  I mean, even Iris has
  a cell phone...

Bikini:
  We've got no choice!
  You'll have to use the public
  phone by Dusky Bridge!

Bikini:
  Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
  Run as fast as you can!

Phoenix:
  Y-Yes, ma'am...

Bikini:
  If you don't hurry,
  Iris will...
  Iris will...!

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

February 7, 11:18 PM
Dusky Bridge

Phoenix:
  ...*huff*...*huff*...
  (It's farther than I thought.)

Phoenix:
  (The bridge is just up ahead.
  I have to go tell Maya what
  happened, too!)

Phoenix:
  ............

Phoenix:
  ...Aaaaaaaaaah!

Phoenix:
  Dusky Bridge...!
  It's burning down!
  (What the heck happened!?)

Butz:
  What are you doing here?

Phoenix:
  Aaaaaaaaah!

Butz:
  Huh? What is it?
  Is it me?

Phoenix:
  D-Don't scare me like that,
  Larry! I almost had a heart
  attack!

Butz:
  My name isn't Larry!
  It's Laurice!

Phoenix:
  Larry, hurry up and call
  the police! I'm going to
  the Inner Temple!

Butz:
  D-Don't be stupid!
  The bridge is nothing but a
  burning wreck right now!

Phoenix:
  Listen to me! There's been
  a murder! Here! At Hazakura
  Temple!

Butz:
  Wha-Whaaaaat!?

Phoenix:
  The murderer might have
  fled across the bridge!

Phoenix:
  I have to make sure
  Maya is safe!

Butz:
  B-B-But...

Phoenix:
  Please! Call the police!
  I've got to go!
  ...Get outta my way, Larry!

Butz:
  It-It's too dangerous!
  Nick, w-wait!

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

Phoenix:
  (I must have been crazy...)

Phoenix:
  (I knew how dangerous it was,
  but I still went for it...)

  ...*crack!*...

Phoenix:
  AAAAAAAAAAHHHH!

Butz:
  Niiiiiick----!

Phoenix:
  (Weakened even more by the
  fire, the rickety old bridge's
  planks snapped and gave way.)

Phoenix:
  (And as I was swallowed by
  the eternal darkness that
  surrounded me...)

Phoenix:
  (...a final, terrified scream
  rose up to pierce the frozen
  air of that harrowing night.)


                                             To be continued.

  (Who could that be
  at this time of night...?)

Phone:
  ...*beep*...

Edgeworth:
  ...Yes? Edgeworth speaking...

Butz:
  Edgey! Get up!
  It's an emergency!

Edgeworth:
  ...Huh? Larry...?
  Do you know what time it is?

Butz:
  It's not "Larry"!
  It's "Laurice"!
  Laurice Deauxnim!

Edgeworth:
  (...)

Edgeworth:
  (This is nothing more than
  a terrible nightmare...
  I'll just roll over and...)

Butz:
  W-Wait! Don't hang up!
  ...It's an emergency!

Butz:
  It's Nick! H-He...
  He took a really nasty spill!

Edgeworth:
  Well, it wouldn't be the
  first time, so...

Butz:
  I'm not joking!
  His life is in danger!

Edgeworth:
  Wh-What...!?
  What happened!?
  Tell me!

Butz:
  Talk about a guy with bad
  luck! He may already be dead!

Butz:
  Anyway, you've got to come
  back! You're the only one
  that can help!

Butz:
  My Iris... My beautiful Iris!
  She needs help...!

Edgeworth:
  Alright. I don't know what's
  going on, but... I'll be there
  as soon as I can.

Butz:
  I-I'm at the detention center!
  Please! Hurryyyyyy!

Phone:
  ...*beep*...

Edgeworth:
  (It's been one year since
  I left that country...)

Edgeworth:
  (I thought I wouldn't have to
  see him again for a while...)

Edgeworth:
  (Sounds like it won't be a
  pretty reunion... As if I
  expected anything to change.)

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

February 8, 2:19 PM
Detention Center
Visitor's Room

Butz:
  You're late, Edgey!
  What took you so long!?

Edgeworth:
  I don't want to hear it!
  I chartered a private jet to
  come as quickly as I could!

Butz:
  Well, you should've
  chartered a faster one!

Butz:
  Anyway, just listen!

Butz:
  Something happened to
  Ms. Elise... and Nick is...
  Maya... and Iris's Bikini...

Butz:
  ...Huh?

Butz:
  Say something, Edgey!

Edgeworth:
  ...Before I came here, I
  stopped in at the hospital
  where Wright is.

Edgeworth:
  I believe I have a better
  understanding of the situation
  than you, at this point.

Edgeworth:
  The murder victim was
  the picture book author,
  Ms. Elise Deauxnim.

Edgeworth:
  She was found by Wright and
  the head nun. The suspect is
  the temple's younger nun.

Edgeworth:
  Then later, while Wright was
  crossing the bridge, it broke
  and he fell into the river.

Edgeworth:
  The hospital says that he'll
  need at least 2 days of
  bed rest.

Butz:
  Y-Yes! Th-That's right!
  You got it!

Butz:
  B-But they arrested her...
  My sweet little Iris!

Edgeworth:
  (And here I was, convinced HE
  was the one the police had
  arrested...)

Edgeworth:
  However... I still don't
  understand what these
  two items are for.

Butz:
  What are you talking about?

Edgeworth:
  They're things Wright gave
  to me when I was leaving
  his room.

Edgeworth:
  (This is the first...)

Edgeworth:
  (He said some nonsense
  about being able to see into
  people's hearts with this...)

Edgeworth:
  (And the other... He couldn't
  possibly be asking what
  I think he is... could he?)

Butz:
  I'm begging you!
  Iris's trial starts tomorrow!

Butz:
  With Nick out of the picture,
  you're all I've got left!

Butz:
  You're the only one that
  can represent her!

Edgeworth:
  ...
  What did you just say?

Butz:
  You know!
  REPRESENT! DEFEND!
  What were you expecting!?

Butz:
  Why do you think I called
  you anyway!?

Edgeworth:
  ...I'm a prosecutor, Larry.
  A prosecutor.

Edgeworth:
  Do YOU understand what I'm
  saying? A prosecutor is a
  lawyer who...

Butz:
  Don't talk to me like a kid!
  I graduated from junior high,
  you know!

Butz:
  Don't worry about it!
  I promise I won't tell!

Edgeworth:
  But I...

Butz:
  I mean, I heard a paper badge
  had no problem fooling an
  entire court before!

Edgeworth:
  (...How could this country's
  judicial system have fallen
  into such decay!?)

Butz:
  Please, Edgey!

Butz:
  At least listen to her...
  Listen to Iris's side of
  the story!

Edgeworth:
  (So Wright wasn't joking
  when he gave me this
  badge after all...)

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

Iris:
  Thank you for coming.
  ...My name is Iris.

Edgeworth:
  ...Edgeworth. Miles Edgeworth.

Edgeworth:
  I don't know if I can be
  of any help, but...

Edgeworth:
  ...I will at least hear what
  you have to say.
  ...About the murder.

Iris:
  Um...

Edgeworth:
  ...?

Iris:
  M-Mr. Wright!
  H-H-How is he?

Iris:
  Mr. Laurice said that he...
  That he might even die...

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  Fortunately, he will be fine.
  (Larry, you moron! How could
  you say something like that!?)

Edgeworth:
  He was badly bruised when
  he hit the water, but
  otherwise he is unharmed.

Iris:
  ...
  Thank goodness...

Edgeworth:
  But, he's caught some kind
  of nasty cold.

Iris:
  A cold...?

Edgeworth:
  He's running a high fever and
  is drifting in and out of
  consciousness.

Iris:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  (I must be imagining things.)

Edgeworth:
  (This woman... I feel like
  I've met her before...)

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Surveillance camera ++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   The camera is glaring at me.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   "If something glares at you,
+   it's only polite to return the
+   favor," is what I was taught.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...
+
+ Iris:
+   Um... Is something
+   bothering you?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...Hm? Oh, e-excuse me.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Guard ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   The guard is glaring at me.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   "If something glares at you,
+   it's only polite to return the
+   favor," is what I was taught.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...
+
+ Iris:
+   Um...
+   Are you alright,
+   Mr. Edgeworth?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...Hm? Oh, e-excuse me.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


MOVE
----

Edgeworth:
  ...Going to a crime scene is
  akin to entering a jungle
  teeming with dangerous beasts.

Edgeworth:
  Before he goes there, a hunter
  needs to make sure he has
  plenty of ammunition.

Edgeworth:
  And in my case, that
  ammunition is called,
  "information".

PRESENT (TO IRIS)
-----------------

*** Attorney's Badge ***********************
*
* Iris:
*   Is that an attorney's badge?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Yes, this belongs to Wright.
*
* Iris:
*   Really?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I'm actually a prosecutor.
*
* Iris:
*   Oh...! Then why do you
*   have a defense attorney's
*   badge pinned on your lapel...?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Well, you see...
*   I, um... I borrowed it.
*
********************************************

*** Hanging Scroll *************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Who is the woman on this
*   hanging scroll?
*
* Iris:
*   Well, I don't know the
*   details, but...
*
* Iris:
*   I've heard she's the Master
*   of the Kurain Channeling
*   Technique.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   M-Master?
*
* Iris:
*   Yes. Mystic Misty.
*   She was a great spirit medium.
*   ...That's what I've heard.
*
* Iris:
*   I also heard that she went
*   missing over 15 years ago.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Spirit mediums... There's
*   no such thing anyway...
*
* Iris:
*   Mr. Edgeworth...?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I know all about them...
*   They're nothing but frauds!
*
* Iris:
*   ...?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (She doesn't know anything
*   about it, of course...)
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (But there was a time,
*   17 years ago, when I met
*   the "Master" myself...)
*
********************************************

*** Iris's Hood ****************************
*
* Iris:
*   That's called a
*   "Demon-Warding Hood".
*
* Iris:
*   ...I gave that to Mr. Wright
*   last night.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   He was wearing this when I
*   saw him at the hospital today.
*
* Iris:
*   It's an important item for
*   protecting acolytes from
*   evil spirits.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   If it's so important, then why
*   did you give it to him?
*
* Iris:
*   Last night... I felt...
*   something...
*
* Iris:
*   I felt that something
*   terrible was about to
*   happen...
*
* Iris:
*   I... I didn't want Mr. Wright
*   to fall into its grip.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (Well he wound up falling into
*   something much deeper and
*   colder...)
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (I probably shouldn't say
*   that out loud, though. Thank
*   god for inner monologue.)
*
********************************************

*** "Oh! Cult!" New Year's Issue ***********
*
* Iris:
*   ...I was against the idea
*   of our temple appearing in
*   that magazine.
*
* Iris:
*   I was afraid that... this type
*   of a tragedy might occur.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   In that case, why did you
*   allow them to run an article
*   about you?
*
* Iris:
*   It was Sister Bikini...
*   She's actually rather fond of
*   attention... Surprisingly so.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (She certainly does look
*   rather happy in this photo...)
*
********************************************

*** Photo of Elise or Elise Deauxnim profile ***
*
* Iris:
*   That's Mystic Elise Deauxnim.
*   She's a picture book author,
*   or so I've heard.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Does she come to
*   Hazakura Temple often...?
*
* Iris:
*   No... This was her first time.
*
* Iris:
*   It's just that...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...?
*
* Iris:
*   She was a very important
*   visitor.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Is that so?
*
* Iris:
*   Yes, Sister Bikini told me,
*   "Be certain not to offend
*   her."
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (The victim, Ms. Elise
*   Deauxnim...)
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (The prosecutor's office still
*   doesn't have much information
*   about her it seems...)
*
********************************************

*** Phoenix Wright profile *****************
*
* Iris:
*   Mr. Wright...
*   How bad is his cold?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Well his fever is very high.
*   As a result, he's rather
*   confused.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   He's worried about Maya,
*   who is still trapped in the
*   Inner Temple...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...And he's quite worried
*   about you as well, it seems.
*
* Iris:
*   ...Really?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Yes... Naturally, once he
*   recovers, I'll pass the baton
*   back to him.
*
* Iris:
*   No... Don't...
*
* Iris:
*   I'm sure that Mr. Wright
*   wouldn't want that...
*
* Iris:
*   He wouldn't want to
*   defend me.
*
********************************************

*** Larry Butz profile *********************
*
* Iris:
*   Oh... That's Mr. Laurice.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...I'm sorry?
*   Who did you say it was?
*
* Iris:
*   Laurice Deauxnim.
*   He is Mystic Elise's
*   apprentice, I think.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (Alright... Now who exactly
*   is this guy...?)
*
* Iris:
*   He's a very sincere,
*   hard-working person.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*
* Iris:
*   Um...
*   Did I say something wrong,
*   Mr. Edgeworth?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   E-Excuse me.
*   I was temporarily at a
*   loss for words.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (Take a trip... Come home...
*   Be thrust suddenly into
*   bizarro world...)
*
********************************************

*** Iris profile ***************************
*
* Iris:
*   You want to know about me?
*   There's not much to tell,
*   I'm afraid.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Just let me get one thing
*   straight. You were raised at
*   Hazakura Temple, correct?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   And yet, somehow, you seem
*   to know Wright.
*
* Iris:
*   ...!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   So you two must have crossed
*   paths somewhere.
*
* Iris:
*   ...No, Mr. Edgeworth.
*   Whomever it was...
*
* Iris:
*   ...it couldn't have been me.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (What is that supposed
*   to mean?)
*
********************************************

*** Anything else **************************
*
* Iris:
*   I'm sorry...
*
* Iris:
*   I don't leave the temple
*   grounds very often...
*
* Iris:
*   So I don't know very much
*   about the outside world.
*
********************************************

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

*AFTER TALKING TO IRIS*

Edgeworth:
  Hmm...

Edgeworth:
  It appears that's about
  all that you can tell me.

Iris:
  Thank you very much for
  listening to my story.

Edgeworth:
  ...I visited Wright at the
  hospital before coming here.

Edgeworth:
  He asked me to take care
  of you...

Iris:
  ...M-Me?

Edgeworth:
  Yes, at the trial tomorrow...
  He asked me to defend you.

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  If Mr. Wright has that much
  faith in you, Mr. Edgeworth...

Iris:
  ...Then I will gladly entrust
  my fate in your capable hands.

Edgeworth:
  But before that,
  I have one question.

Iris:
  Yes?

Edgeworth:
  Do you know Wright?

Iris:
  Er...
  Wh-Why would you ask that?

Edgeworth:
  Whenever you came up in our
  conversation, he would begin
  to act a little... strange.

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  Mr. Edgeworth...
  Are you his friend?

Edgeworth:
  Friend? Well...
  In a sense, yes.

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  It was 5 years ago...

Iris:
  That's when I...
  That's when I...
  deceived him.

Edgeworth:
  You "deceived" him...?

Iris:
  I heard that he was...
  in a lot of pain after what
  happened.

Iris:
  I know what a weak person
  I am.

Iris:
  That's why...
  That's why I thought it was
  best if he never saw me again.

Iris:
  I wanted him to just forget
  about me, without learning
  the truth.

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  Well, if you ask me, Wright is
  still suffering...

Edgeworth:
  And until he learns the truth,
  I don't think he will ever be
  able to truly recover.

Edgeworth:
  ...Iris.
  It's not too late.

Edgeworth:
  You should go to him.
  ...Tell him the truth.

Iris:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  I'll defend you, but only if
  you agree to that one
  condition.

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  Alright, Mr. Edgeworth...
  I promise.

Edgeworth:
  ...Very well. I'll do
  everything in my power to
  get you an acquittal.

Edgeworth:
  (That's enough information
  gathering for now. I should
  head to the crime scene...)

MOVE TO: "Suspension Bridge"

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

February 8
Dusky Bridge

Edgeworth:
  (It sure is cold alright...)

Edgeworth:
  (So this is it...
  Dusky Bridge...)

? ? ?:
  Ahem!
  M-Mr. Edgeworth!

Edgeworth:
  Urk... Detective Gumshoe.

Gumshoe:
  Long time no see!
  It's been about a year?
  ...Or has it been longer?

Edgeworth:
  It doesn't matter, Detective.
  What does matter is why you're
  shuffling around up here.

Gumshoe:
  Oh, ouch!
  ...And there was a
  sharp left jab!

Gumshoe:
  Well, I'm happy to see
  you anyway, Mr. Edgeworth!

Edgeworth:
  Let me guess... You were
  transferred into another
  section at work.

Edgeworth:
  A good choice. The vast amount
  of nothing up here must be
  quite easy to guard.

Gumshoe:
  I heard you were back in the
  country and arranged to come
  all the way out here!

Gumshoe:
  Everybody was real nice.
  They even let me take charge
  of the investigation, sir.

Edgeworth:
  (...Gumshoe indeed!
  Like gum on your shoe, he's
  impossible to get rid of!)

Gumshoe:
  I'm supposed to report on the
  details of the crime scene,
  sir!

Gumshoe:
  Anyway! Here I am!
  Detective Dick Gumshoe!
  Reporting for duty!

Edgeworth:
  ...Great.
  Um, thank you, Detective.

Gumshoe:
  I thought Prosecutor Godot
  was gonna get here before me.

Gumshoe:
  That guy's a real mystery,
  I tell you!

Edgeworth:
  (...Prosecutor Godot?)

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Cliff on the other side ++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   It looks like a pretty good
+   distance to that far cliff.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah... It's gotta be around
+   100 yards or so.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Detective... That's not even
+   CLOSE to a hundred yards.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Well...
+   I gotta admit I'm not very
+   good at judging distances.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (It's about 20 yards or so.
+   And impossible to cross
+   without a bridge, it seems...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Wooden sign on the left side +++++++++++
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   There's a little shack down
+   that way called, "Heavenly
+   Hall".
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   A shack...?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It's like a run-down doghouse
+   for losers that can't bear the
+   freezing drafts of wind...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Kinda reminds me of
+   my apartment, sir.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   The name "Heavenly Hall"
+   makes it sound like a
+   palace...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Giving a hovel a great name
+   is a crime itself! I'd call
+   it false advertising!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   By the way, the name of my
+   apartment complex is
+   "Compton Castles"...
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...That's not such a great
+   name, if you ask me.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Well, it's not such a
+   great apartment either, sir.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The bridge +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   So this is the bridge Wright
+   tried to cross?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Pretty reckless, if you
+   ask me.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   I'm amazed he survived the
+   fall from up here...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah, he's one lucky guy, sir.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Now I see how he manages
+   to win his cases in court.
+   Blind luck.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (I think dumb luck suits
+   Wright just a bit better.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Stone boulder ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Some letters are wildly
+   engraved into a roughly
+   cut boulder.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   "Dusky Bridge"...
+   It certainly is an
+   appropriate name.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   You need to get some glasses,
+   Mr. Edgeworth! That sign says,
+   "Dusty Bridge".
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I can see how you read
+   it wrong, though, sir.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   You're the one who needs
+   glasses, Detective.
+   Try reading it one more time.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Ah! You're right!
+   It's "Dusky Bridge" after all!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...
+   I guess whoever wrote
+   this made a mistake!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Red public phone +++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Hey! It's a public phone!
+   You don't see a lot of
+   these anymore!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...That's true.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Since we've got one here,
+   why don't we take a photo as
+   a memento!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Well, um, sure. Why not?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Oh, darn it!
+   I don't have a camera with me!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...I'm gonna go buy a
+   disposable camera!
+   I'll be right back, sir!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (What's so special about
+   public phones, and why is
+   he so fascinated by them...?)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

PRESENT (TO GUMSHOE)
--------------------

*** Attorney's Badge ***********************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Huh?
*   What's that thing doing on
*   your lapel, Mr. Edgeworth?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...Is it really that odd?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   You bet it is, sir!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   A prosecutor wearing a
*   defense attorney's badge?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   That's like a detective with
*   a license to kill!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (Does this little thing hold
*   that ominous of a meaning...?)
*
********************************************

*** Magatama *******************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Have you ever seen this
*   thing before...?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Hey, thanks a lot. I was
*   getting kind of hungry!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...*chomp!*
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Wh-What are you doing,
*   Detective!?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Ack!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...I thought it was some
*   kind of candy that would
*   fill me up, sir.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Lately I've been feeling
*   so hungry all the time...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (Nngh... Maybe his salary has
*   been cut just a little too
*   much...?)
*
********************************************

*** Photo of Elise or Elise Deauxnim profile ***
*
* Gumshoe:
*   There's a lot we don't know
*   about this victim...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   We don't know her real name,
*   her background...
*   We don't know anything really.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   That's rather odd...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   If she was trying to hide her
*   identity, why would she
*   become an author?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I'll bet it was just one
*   of those things.
*   You know...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She probably never
*   expected to get so
*   popular.
*
********************************************

*** Phoenix Wright profile *****************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Whenever something happens,
*   this guy always shows up like
*   he hasn't got a care.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   In fact, you know what...?
*   Every time he shows up, I
*   always wonder the same thing.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   "Maybe somehow he's
*   actually the cause of all
*   these incidents!"
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (I wonder if Gumshoe has
*   realized it yet...)
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (But you could say the exact
*   the same thing about him!)
*
********************************************

*** Dick Gumshoe profile *******************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Your face is more drawn out
*   than the last time I saw you
*   over a year ago.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   R-Really?
*   I thought so!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   No, wait...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   It's not so much "drawn out",
*   as "weary and tired", or maybe
*   just plain old "thin".
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I thought that too, sir.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   My salary's been kinda
*   on the low end...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   So yeah, my food options
*   have been kinda non-existent.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Off-brand chicken soup,
*   off-brand spaghetti, off-brand
*   bread... That sort of stuff.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I thought you were really
*   into instant noodles last
*   year...?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...I got really sick of the
*   stuff after a while, sir.
*
********************************************

*** Larry Butz profile *********************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   He's supposed to be Ms. Elise
*   Deauxnim's apprentice or
*   something.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...I see.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah, he drew a nice
*   portrait of me.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...That's nice.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   But he made me pay
*   him 50 cents for it.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...I'm sorry about that.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   You don't seem very
*   interested in him,
*   Mr. Edgeworth.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...I really don't want to talk
*   about him. That's why.
*
********************************************

*** Iris profile ***************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I feel like I've seen this
*   girl somewhere before!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   She wasn't from a prior
*   case, was she?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Nope, can't be.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   We did a database search
*   with her fingerprints and
*   came up with nothing.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I see...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (I just can't shake this
*   nagging feeling...)
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Well, everyone knows that you
*   are quite popular with the
*   ladies, sir...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Maybe she's an old girlfriend
*   that you sent to Dumpsville
*   when you were younger.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   D-Detective!
*   Where did you hear such
*   nonsense from!?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I didn't hear it from anyone.
*   It's just sorta how I imagine
*   you to be... sir.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (...D-Do I really inspire this
*   sort of frothing desire from
*   the female masses?)
*
********************************************

*** Godot profile **************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I usually hear about promising
*   young prosecutor candidates
*   while they're still in school.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   But I've never seen or
*   heard of this person.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I gotta admit...
*   He's puzzling alright.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   He just appeared one day,
*   big mug of steaming coffee
*   in his hand...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Hmm...
*   He sounds like an interesting
*   man...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah... The whole prosecutor's
*   office is really into double
*   espresso macchiatos lately.
*
********************************************

*** Anything else **************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Look, I'm just your everyday,
*   simple detective.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Don't ask me such tough
*   questions, OK?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...That's not something to
*   be proud of, Detective!
*
********************************************

MOVE TO: "Detention Center"

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

February 8
Detention Center
Visitor's Room

Edgeworth:
  (It looks like Iris is being
  interrogated right now.)

Edgeworth:
  ...This place certainly
  brings back memories.

Gumshoe:
  Oh yeah. Come to think of
  it, you got thrown in here
  once too, didn't you, sir?

Gumshoe:
  But you know what?
  I've never been in jail
  a single time!

Edgeworth:
  (I should think it's hard to
  land in jail when you're so
  harmless...)

Edgeworth:
  Yes, well...

Edgeworth:
  If you're in jail, you don't
  have to pay for your own
  meals, you know.

Gumshoe:
  ...*gasp!*

Gumshoe:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  Don't get any funny
  ideas, Detective...!

Gumshoe:
  ...Too late, I already did.

Edgeworth:
  (In any case... I guess I'll
  have to come back here
  later...)

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Surveillance camera ++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   That camera is meant to
+   monitor everything that
+   happens in here.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   And right now, it's pointed
+   straight at the guard.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Guard ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   The guard is staring at me
+   with a puzzled expression
+   on his face.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Me... and the badge
+   on my lapel.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...I get the feeling he
+   recognizes me.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MOVE TO: "Main Gate"

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

February 8
Hazakura Temple
Main Gate

Butz:
  Yo! Edgey!
  What took you so long!?

Butz:
  I'm so cold, my brain's
  turned to sherbet.

Edgeworth:
  ...I knew it was a mistake to
  race back to this country.

Butz:
  Wh-What do you mean...?

Edgeworth:
  Wright is going to be fine,
  and the case itself isn't
  anything unusual...

Edgeworth:
  And I find myself taking a
  request to defend a woman
  accused of murder!

Gumshoe:
  ...H-Hey! Wait a sec!
  Hold it!
  Objection!

Gumshoe:
  What's going on here,
  Mr. Edgeworth!?

Edgeworth:
  Um, it's hard to explain,
  but one thing led to
  another and...

Butz:
  What kind of lame excuse
  is that!? And you call
  yourself a defense attorney!?

Gumshoe:
  Prosecutor Edgeworth is a
  prosecutor, and that's why
  he's Prosecutor Edgeworth!

Gumshoe:
  "Prosecutor Edgeworth, Defense
  Attorney" just sounds plain
  old weird, pal!

Gumshoe:
  ...Right,
  Prosecutor Edgeworth!?

Edgeworth:
  (...I'm not sure what role
  I'm supposed to be playing
  anymore.)

Butz:
  Hmph! Dude, Edgey...
  I don't see you for
  a couple of years...

Butz:
  ...and your heart turns
  to sherbet!

Edgeworth:
  ...I'd say more like sorbet.
  It is rather cold here.

Butz:
  Iris didn't murder her!
  Someone else did it!

Butz:
  I just know it, OK!?
  So trust me on this one!

Edgeworth:
  Ever the romantic,
  aren't you, Larry?

Edgeworth:
  Nevertheless, I'll do
  whatever I can to prove
  her innocence.

Edgeworth:
  (At least until I pass the
  baton on to Wright, that is.)

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ The gate +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   This gate looks quite old;
+   strong enough to resist
+   the weight of time.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   That's the Mr. Edgeworth I
+   know! You got a real flair for
+   words, sir!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   I have always appreciated
+   this kind of old, timeless
+   elegance.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   That's exactly how I
+   feel, too!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Take this coat for example!
+   Like a fine wine, it gets
+   better with age!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Even fine wine turns to
+   vinegar and begins to stink
+   at some point.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...I suggest you wash that
+   atrocious rag you call a
+   coat, Detective.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The Main Hall ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   That must be the Main Hall
+   back there.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   A brilliant deduction, sir!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ............
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Are you trying to flatter me,
+   Detective Gumshoe?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Umm...
+   A brilliant use of suspense
+   to build the tension, sir!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (According to Wright, the head
+   nun has some important
+   information.)
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (I can't miss the opportunity
+   to speak with her...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Bell tower +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   I can see a small bell tower
+   from here.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Hey, that just reminded me!
+   There's something I've
+   always wondered about...
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (Something tells me he's going
+   to tell me what's on his mind,
+   whether I like it or not...)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   We call a person who tells
+   a lie a "liar", right?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   So why don't we call a
+   person who rings a bell
+   a "beller"?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Or "truer" for a guy who tells
+   the truth! Oh man, I'm not
+   gonna get any sleep tonight!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (I had no idea he was
+   such a deep thinker...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Snowmobile +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   I suppose this type of thing
+   is necessary up here in the
+   mountains.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Say, this just gave me a
+   great idea!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (Something tells me he's going
+   to tell me what's on his mind,
+   whether I like it or not...)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I've got an idea for a brand
+   new invention! It might even
+   make me rich!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   An invention...?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah! A car that can

+   I'll call it a "Snow Car"!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   So what do you think, sir?
+   Would you go for a ride
+   on something like that?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...Only after you take the
+   first 1000 test rides.

*** Attorney's Badge ***********************
*
* Butz:
*   Come to think of it, when
*   you were a kid, you were
*   always saying,
*
* Butz:
*   "When I grow up, I want to be
*   a lawyer and defend people,"
*   or something like that.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...That was a long time ago.
*
* Butz:
*   But see, now you've got the
*   chance to follow your
*   boyhood dream for a day!
*
* Butz:
*   Edgey! You've gotta do it!
*   You gotta save my little Iris!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (Grr... This is exactly why
*   I hate childhood friends...)
*
********************************************

*** Photo of Elise or Elise Deauxnim profile ***
*
* Butz:
*   ...I still can't believe it.
*   She was such a great person...
*
* Butz:
*   But! Someone's pinning this
*   murder on my sweet little
*   Iris!
*
* Butz:
*   Edgey! Please!
*   I'm counting on you!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Well... Frankly, I was hoping
*   you could give me a little
*   more than that.
*
* Butz:
*   ...Errr. Well then...
*
* Butz:
*   I got it! I'll draw you a
*   portrait! How about that!?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*   Since you're kind enough
*   to offer... alright.
*
********************************************

*** Phoenix Wright profile *****************
*
* Butz:
*   He was a good guy...
*   A real pal to the end.
*
* Butz:
*   When I look back now, I have
*   nothing but good memories.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   What's with the past tense?
*   He's not dead, you know!
*
* Butz:
*   Yeah, you're right.
*   Anyway, the guy owes me.
*   After all, I saved his life.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   What is that supposed
*   to mean?
*
* Butz:
*   If I hadn't called for help
*   so quickly, he would have
*   died.
*
* Butz:
*   It's no surprise though. I
*   used to be a security guard.
*   It was all instinct, baby!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (He has a point... He called
*   me pretty quickly, too...)
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (I think Larry's pretty good
*   at motivating people.)
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (I just wish he would try
*   motivating himself once
*   in a while!)
*
********************************************

*** Larry Butz profile *********************
*
* Butz:
*   Huh? Me? All you have to
*   know is to remember not to
*   call me "Larry" anymore.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   What...?
*
* Butz:
*   I'm a new person now.
*   I've been reborn...
*   as Laurice Deauxnim!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Alright, fine.
*   Let me ask you something
*   else then, Larry.
*
* Butz:
*   Call me "Laurice"!!
*   If you don't...
*
* Butz:
*   ...then I'll call you...
*   I'll call you...
*   "Milise Deauxnim"!
*
********************************************

*** Iris profile ***************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I have a feeling that
*   she's hiding something...
*
* Butz:
*   Could be... After all, she's
*   shy and gets embarrassed
*   pretty easily.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...I don't think that has
*   anything to do with it.
*
* Butz:
*   Why not?
*   Look, I know all about this
*   kind of thing.
*
* Butz:
*   C'mon Edgey... You were a guy
*   once! Lots of girls are like
*   Iris. You know I'm right!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Well, you most certainly seem
*   to have convinced yourself!
*
* Butz:
*   Man, I love shy girls like
*   her! It-It's just so... cute!
*   You know what I mean?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (Still doesn't listen to
*   others, I see... I guess some
*   people just never change.)
*
********************************************

*** Anything else **************************
*
* Butz:
*   Hey, I know I may not look
*   like it, but I'm an artist.
*
* Butz:
*   I refuse to look at anything

*   or beautiful motif.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (...He didn't even give it
*   a glance.)

MOVE TO: "Main Hall"

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

February 8
Hazakura Temple
Main Hall

Bikini:
  *sigh*

Gumshoe:
  Hey! Hello there!
  Um, so how are you feeling?

Bikini:
  Alright, I suppose.
  ...Huh? Who is this?

Edgeworth:
  I... My name is...
  Miles Edgeworth.

Bikini:
  My my my.
  A handsome boy such as
  yourself is always welcome!

Bikini:
  *sigh*
  If circumstances weren't
  so tragic, I might just...

Edgeworth:
  (Please don't call me "boy".)
  I'm sorry to trouble you...

Edgeworth:
  But I'm looking for a
  woman in a bikini.

Bikini:
  Well, you have found her.
  Now, what can I do for you?

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  I'm sorry, but I don't see
  any bikinis...

Bikini:
  Ha ha ha!
  If you ask nicely, I might
  give you a peek, big boy.

Bikini:
  Wa ha ha ho ho ho!

Gumshoe:
  Umm... Mr. Edgeworth?

Gumshoe:
  This is the head nun,
  Sister Bikini... She's the
  witness.

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  Why didn't you tell me that
  earlier!?

Edgeworth:
  This is exactly why your
  salary keeps on getting cut!

Gumshoe:
  Nngh...
  My stomach is already growling
  in protest...

Bikini:
  So... Um... What's the latest
  about my beloved Iris!?

Edgeworth:
  Well, first...
  I want to hear what you know.

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Walls/Sliding doors ++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   There's flowing script
+   written everywhere on
+   the walls.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Man, I'd bet you'd have awful
+   nightmares if you tried to
+   sleep in here.
+
+ Bikini:
+   This is our Main Hall, so it's
+   protected by a variety of
+   magic spells and charms...
+
+ Bikini:
+   They're all designed to
+   prevent evil forces from
+   entering.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   So if I slept here the uggie-
+   woogie-boogieman wouldn't hunt
+   me down for eternity? Alright!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (Does this guy think about
+   anything other than eating
+   and sleeping...?)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Stuff on the floor +++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Oh! It's a warmed cat box!
+   But where are all the cats?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...It's called a "hibachi".
+   It's for heating the room.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Oh! Look at all these ancient
+   straw frisbees!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Those are a type of "zabuton"
+   cushions called "enza"!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Why are you giving me
+   such a hard time?
+   Huh, Mr. Edgeworth? Why?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Because learning something new
+   might actually be a good thing
+   for you, Detective!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Altar ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   It's an altar with a giant
+   Magatama enshrined on it.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   There are lots of candles
+   lined up on it, too.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   You know...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I haven't had a birthday party
+   for myself in a while...
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Maybe you should blow out
+   those candles over there to
+   make up for that.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Mr. Edgeworth?
+   Would you mind singing
+   "Happy Birthday" to me?
+
+ Bikini:
+   S-Stop that! Cut that out!
+   Please don't blow out the
+   altar candles!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Large Magatama on the altar ++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...That thing sure casts a
+   strong presence over the
+   whole room.
+
+ Bikini:
+   This is the "Lesser Magatama".
+   It's a precious heirloom
+   containing a great many souls.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Huh...!?
+   This is "lesser"!? What is
+   the "greater" one like?
+
+ Bikini:
+   The "Greater Magatama"
+   is displayed in the Main
+   Room of Fey Manor.
+
+ Bikini:
+   It was supposed to be
+   shown at the Treasures
+   of Kurain exhibit...
+
+ Bikini:
+   But, it was so large that
+   they couldn't bring it
+   through the doors.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Left corner near the altar +++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (There are more enza cushions
+   in the corner of the room.)
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...What's that white piece of
+   paper sticking out from under
+   that stack...?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Hmm... Beats me.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Would you mind checking that
+   for me, Detective Gumshoe?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Y-Yes, sir!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Here you are, Mr. Edgeworth!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   It looks like an old
+   manila envelope...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Eeeeeeeeeeaaaah!!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...What is it, Detective?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Th-This...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   This could be it!
+   An ultra important clue!
+   A super-special clue!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...I suppose I should read
+   it myself then.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It looks like a letter
+   addressed to Sister Iris.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   "tonight at 10 at Heavenly
+   Hall. ... ...unless you want
+   your 'secret' to be exposed."
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Th-This sounds like
+   a blackmail letter...!
+
+ *Note to Iris added
+ to the Court Record.*
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Nice going there,
+   Mr. Edgeworth!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Why can't I ever find
+   clues like that!?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   You're an ultra-important
+   prosecutor!!
+   A super-duper prosecutor!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Well, I suppose it takes a
+   super-duper kind of dumb to
+   miss a clue like this.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Left corner near the altar (again) +++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (There are more enza cushions
+   in the corner of the room.)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Nice going there,
+   Mr. Edgeworth!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Why can't I ever find
+   clues like that!?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   You're an ultra-important
+   prosecutor!!
+   A super-duper prosecutor!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Well, I suppose it takes a
+   super-duper kind of dumb to
+   miss a clue like this.
+

*   Excuse me?
*
* Bikini:
*   Oh, of course this piece

*

*

*   Apparently, she intended to

*   Who is this daughter?
*
* Bikini:
*   Well, I myself am part

*   That's why we always wear

*

*   Of course I saw her.
*

*   I told her to meet us after

*
* Gumshoe:
*   So you're saying Iris came

*
* Bikini:
*   Of course she did.
*   Iris has always been a good,

*

*   After that, I had Maya begin

*   The Fey name is synonymous

MOVE TO: "Courtyard"

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

February 8
Hazakura Temple
Courtyard

Gumshoe:
  And this is where the
  murder took place, sir!

Gumshoe:
  Other than removing the body,
  we left everything else
  untouched!

Edgeworth:
  Thanks, Detective.
  I'll just have a look around.

Edgeworth:
  (It looks like the police are
  still investigating...)

Gumshoe:
  Oh yeah, by the way...
  I thought I'd better ask,
  just to be sure...

Gumshoe:
  Are you really gonna
  defend that nun, Iris, at
  the trial tomorrow?

Edgeworth:
  Yes, I will... I gave her my
  word and now I must follow
  through with my commitments.

Gumshoe:
  Well, in that case...
  I've gotta be careful...

Gumshoe:
  Gotta make sure I don't
  leak the prosecution's
  whole investigation...

Edgeworth:
  Don't worry about it,
  Detective.

Edgeworth:
  Just keep your mouth closed
  and I think most of it will
  flow out on its own.

Gumshoe:
  ...

Gumshoe:
  Roger, sir!
  I know exactly what
  you're saying!

Edgeworth:
  Very well, Detective...
  (Thankfully his diarrhea of
  the mouth is permanent...)

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Lantern on the left ++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   It's a lantern... I suppose
+   they light it at night.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   There's something elegant
+   about the light of a fire.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   At the end of each month,
+   I always like to relax in
+   my room by candlelight.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Detective...
+   Can you not afford to pay
+   your electricity bill...?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...How did you know?
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The staff on the snow ++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   What's this...?
+   It looks like a wizard's
+   staff.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   That belonged to the victim,
+   Ms. Elise Deauxnim.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   There's nothing strange or
+   magical about it.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...Oh yeah!
+   Listen, this is just
+   between us, OK sir?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Yes... What?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   This is top-secret stuff!
+   Don't tell anyone about this.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...Alright.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   The truth is...
+   When I was a kid...
+   I wanted to be a wizard!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ......
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   That's it?
+   That's what you wanted
+   to tell me?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   That's it.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (This staff was made from
+   a very strong kind of wood...)
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...What about fingerprints?
+   Were there any on it?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Just the victim's.
+
+ *Victim's Staff added
+ to the Court Record.*
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Ami Fey statue +++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   So the sword from this
+   gold statue is actually
+   the murder weapon?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It sure is. It's called a
+   "Shichishito" by the way.
+   Nasty piece of work, sir.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   There's still blood on it...
+   I suppose this is the
+   victim's blood?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yup. It's all over the blade.
+   And speaking of "all
+   over the blade"...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   There are fingerprints
+   all over the hilt of the
+   Shichishito, too.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Fingerprints...?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Naturally they match the
+   prints we got from the
+   younger nun, the defendant.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (Her fingerprints are on
+   the murder weapon...!?)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   What's wrong?
+   You're looking really solemn.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Is this how it is for Wright?
+   Is this what it's like to be
+   a defense lawyer?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah, I figure it doesn't
+   feel really good.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...To be honest, it feels
+   more like it's detrimental
+   to your health.
+
+ *Shichishito added
+ to the Court Record.*
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Stone wall +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   The Main Gate must be just
+   over that stone wall.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Ah, stone walls...
+   I jumped over a few of
+   those in my time.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Most of them are good
+   memories, but not all.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Detective... Perhaps someone
+   should introduce you to the
+   concept of paucity of words...
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Top right corner +++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   The Main Hall of Hazakura
+   Temple is above us here.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Hey... You're right!
+   But I'm pretty sure the Main
+   Hall didn't have a 2nd floor.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Hazakura Temple was built on a
+   steep part of the mountain.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   The front and back of the
+   Main Hall are on different
+   levels.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Oh... That makes sense...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   But wouldn't it be easier
+   just to build the place
+   slanted, sir?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (I fail to see how he can
+   consider that to be an even
+   remotely good idea.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Ski apparatus ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Ah! I just love skiing!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Really? You don't um...
+   seem like the type.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Well, what about sleds?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Sleds? Nah. They're a little
+   too kiddy, you know? Messes
+   with my "hard boiled" image.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...What's with the silence,
+   Mr. Edgeworth?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (I...Is the world starting to
+   go mad?)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

PRESENT (TO GUMSHOE)
--------------------

*** Victim's Staff *************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh, so I think I might have
*   already told you about this,
*   but...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   The truth is...
*   When I was a little kid...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   You wanted to become
*   a wizard, right?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Hey, that's amazing!
*   How did you know that!?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   So? What do you think? I'd
*   make a really great one,
*   don't you think?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   We just had this conversation
*   a little while ago, Detective!
*
********************************************

*** Shichishito ****************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   This sword represents the
*   multiple branches that life
*   can take, all ending as one.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Hmm...
*   I've never heard that one.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   You know what I think
*   about sometimes?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   What kind of life would I have
*   had if I hadn't joined the
*   Homicide Division.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...So you think about
*   that kind of thing too, huh?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Of course I do.
*   I think about it a lot.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Me as a traffic cop.
*   Me as a detention officer.
*   Me as the Blue Badger...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (...I guess he doesn't have
*   any plans to leave the force.)
*
********************************************

*** Bikini profile *************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   This is the witness who saw
*   the crime take place out there
*   in the temple courtyard.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I'm pretty sure it's gonna be
*   her testimony that'll be key
*   to this case, sir.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   So you mean she's going to
*   be a witness in the trial
*   tomorrow...?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Of course!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   A nun is as trustworthy
*   as you can get! We got
*   this one in the bag!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*   Oh.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I-I mean, I've always been
*   on your side, Mr. Edgeworth,
*   sir!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   So yeah, this is a pretty
*   tight spot we've gotten
*   ourselves into, huh!?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (Now I understand why Wright
*   is always breaking into a
*   cold sweat...)
*
********************************************

*** Maya Fey profile ***********************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I wonder if Maya is alright?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I could never show my face
*   to Wright again if something
*   were to happen to her.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Aww, it'll be OK.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   If that ever happens, you
*   can just show him my face.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   How's that...?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Ack!
*   Um, I didn't mean it like
*   that, sir!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   It was just a silly
*   little joke!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I wonder if there is another
*   way to get across to the
*   other side?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   The support wires for the
*   bridge are still intact,
*   correct?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   That bridge is almost
*   20 yards long...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I know I may look like it,
*   Mr. Edgeworth, but I'm
*   no super hero.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (In any case, I just hope
*   Maya is alright...)
*
********************************************

*** Pearl Fey profile **********************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   What about Pearl...?
*   Has no one seen her at
*   all since last night?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Seems that way...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Apparently, she hasn't gone
*   back to Kurain Village either,
*   sir.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   But it's true that she was
*   with Elise Deauxnim at some
*   point last night?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   No doubt about it.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Ah...!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Y-You mean that maybe
*   whoever killed Ms. Deauxnim
*   also...!?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   D-Don't jump to any
*   crazy conclusions!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oooooouuuch!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...You sure have one mean
*   punch, Mr. Edgeworth! It's
*   down-right fierce!
*

MOVE TO: "Main Gate"

February 8
Hazakura Temple
Main Gate

Edgeworth:
  ...Hmm.
  I don't see Larry anywhere.

Gumshoe:
  Maybe we scared the
  poor kid away!

Edgeworth:
  (His heart was shut tight
  with a Psycholock.)

Edgeworth:
  (I guess I'll have to look
  for him now...
  What a thorn in my side.)

MOVE TO: "Detention Center"

February 8
Detention Center
Visitor's Room

Iris:
  Ah... Mr. Edgeworth...

Edgeworth:
  ...I came back because I
  need to ask you a few more
  questions, if you don't mind.

Iris:
  But I... I've already told you
  everything that I...

Edgeworth:
  ...Iris.
  Please remember.

Edgeworth:
  I'm on your side.
  You can tell me anything.

Iris:
  Y-Yes... Th-Thank you.

PRESENT (TO IRIS)
-----------------

*** Note to Iris ***************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   This letter... It appears to
*   be addressed to you.
*
* Iris:
*   ...
*
* Iris:
*   I think it's someone's idea
*   of a joke, Mr. Edgeworth.
*
* Iris:
*   That's why I threw it away.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (She's not giving me a
*   straight answer for some
*   reason.)
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (I'm going to have to find
*   someone else who can give me
*   more information about this.)
*
********************************************

*** Shichishito ****************************
*
* Iris:
*   I-Is that the murder weapon?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Yes, it is.
*   Have you ever seen it before?
*
* Iris:
*   Y-Yes.
*   Mystic Ami was holding it...
*   in the courtyard...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (And apparently, the head
*   nun witnessed the whole sad
*   affair...)
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (She saw you stabbing
*   Ms. Elise Deauxnim with
*   this very sword last night...)
*
* Iris:
*   ...?
*
********************************************

*** Larry Butz profile *********************
*
* Iris:
*   Oh... That's Mr. Laurice.
*
* Iris:
*   He's a very sincere,
*   hard-working person.
*
* Iris:
*   He was even kind enough to
*   draw a portrait of me.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (Knowing Larry...)
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (...this woman is exactly the
*   type that he would fall in
*   love with at first sight.)
*
********************************************

*** Bikini profile *************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...I'd like to ask you about
*   Sister Bikini, the head of
*   Hazakura Temple.
*
* Iris:
*   She raised me as if she
*   were my real mother.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   "As if she were your
*   real mother"...?
*
* Iris:
*   I was left at Hazakura Temple
*   when I was just a small child.
*
* Iris:
*   And she's taken care
*   of me ever since.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Forgive me for sounding rude,
*   but what about your family?
*
* Iris:
*   ...
*   I'm sorry, but I'd rather
*   not talk about this.
*

*** Maya Fey profile ***********************
*
* Iris:
*   Oh... This is the woman
*   who was to undergo
*   training last night.
*
* Iris:
*   She seems like a very
*   strong, reliable woman.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*
* Edgeworth:

* Edgeworth:

*** Pearl Fey profile **********************
*
* Iris:
*   This is the trainee's younger

*
* Iris:
*   She's cute as a button!
*   And she seems to really love
*   mashed potatoes and gravy!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...Oh?
*
* Iris:
*   She even said she was going
*   to have the leftovers for
*   dinner the next night...
*
* Iris:
*   And then she took the leftover
*   potatoes and the whole pot of
*   gravy with her to her room.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (That's quite an appetite
*   for such a little girl...)

*Present Magatama*

Edgeworth:
  *TAKE THAT!*

*2 PSYCHE-LOCKS*

-- I Was Frightened --

Edgeworth:
  Since I have been handed this
  case, it is my duty to dig up
  all the answers. Understand?

Iris:
  Y-Yes, sir...

Edgeworth:
  The smallest flame can
  sometimes bathe a case
  in a whole new light...

Edgeworth:
  In my years in court,
  I've seen it happen over
  and over again.

Edgeworth:
  That's why I'm committed to
  searching until I have those
  answers.

Edgeworth:
  Now then, is it really true
  that you didn't go to the
  Inner Temple last night...?

Iris:
  Y-Yes, I swear...
  I already told you that.

Edgeworth:
  ...Yes. You said you didn't
  go because you were
  frightened.

Iris:
  ...Th-That's right.

Edgeworth:
  If that's the case...

Edgeworth:
  ...then the obvious question
  is, "What were you so afraid
  of?"

Iris:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  Iris...
  I wonder.

Edgeworth:
  Is this what frightened you so
  much that you couldn't even
  leave your own room!?

x Edgeworth:

x
x Iris:
x   I-I'm sorry, but...
x   you're wrong...
x
x Edgeworth:
x   Huh...?
x   Why is your voice trembling
x   like that?
x
x Iris:
x   It's just that... Your eyes...
x   Your eyes are scaring me...
x
x Edgeworth:
x   Urk!
x   (Blast! I must be trying
x   too hard to bluff.)
x
x Edgeworth:
x   ...Please excuse me.
x   I'm still not used to this
x   role I've been assigned.
x
x Iris:
x   N-No, I should apologize...
x   I'm sorry for being such
x   a scaredy-cat.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   Anyway... I'm still determined
x   to find the answers to this

*Present Note to Iris*

Edgeworth:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Edgeworth:
  I found this in the Main Hall.
  It is addressed to you.

Iris:
  Ah... Th-That's...!

Edgeworth:
  Well, Iris...?

Iris:
  Why... Why are you glaring
  at me like that?

Edgeworth:
  You were scared of the
  blackmailer who wrote this
  to you, isn't that correct!?

Iris:
  Aaaaah!

*1 LOCK BROKEN*

Edgeworth:
  (Was it the evidence or the
  power of my glare that broke
  that lock...?)

Edgeworth:
  (Oh well, I don't suppose
  it matters either way.)

Iris:
  B-But, Mr. Edgeworth.

Edgeworth:
  ...Yes?

Iris:
  I thought that letter was
  just someone playing a
  prank on me...

Edgeworth:
  A "prank"?

Iris:
  Well, yes...

Iris:
  After all, even if I did have
  a "secret"...

Iris:
  ...there's no one to tell it
  to that would cause me
  any grief.

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  Hmm... I wonder about that.

Iris:
  Sister Bikini is like a
  mother to me.

Iris:
  I would never hide
  anything from her!

Edgeworth:
  No, you may not have
  anything to hide under
  normal circumstances.

Edgeworth:
  However!
  Last night was different.

Iris:
  ...!

Edgeworth:
  Unfortunately, I don't know
  the exact nature of your
  secret yet.

Edgeworth:
  However...!
  Whatever it is...

Edgeworth:
  ...there is one person you
  didn't want your secret told
  to!

xxx Present something wrong xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
x
x Edgeworth:
x   *TAKE THAT!*
x
x Edgeworth:
x   Well, Iris?
x
x Iris:
x   ...Mr. Edgeworth. Is it
x   just possible that maybe...
x
x Iris:
x   ...you yourself have a deep,
x   dark secret in your heart?
x
x Edgeworth:
x   ...!
x   Why do you say that...!?
x
x Iris:
x   As they say, it takes
x   one to know one.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   (How could she have known
x   about that...? Is she peering
x   into my soul!?)
x
x Edgeworth:
x   ...It's true that there is a
x   deep-seated darkness in
x   my heart.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   However, the only way I
x   can get rid of it is to fully
x   uncover the truth!

*Present Phoenix Wright profile*

Edgeworth:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Edgeworth:
  Phoenix Wright...

Iris:
  Ah...!

Edgeworth:
  You mean something to
  Wright, it seems...

Edgeworth:
  And I can tell he holds a
  special place in your heart
  as well.

Edgeworth:
  That's why you didn't want
  him, of all people, to know
  your deep, dark secret.

Edgeworth:
  Well? What do you have to say?

Iris:

Iris:
  I should've expected as

*AFTER TALKING TO IRIS*

Edgeworth:
  In any case, you still claim
  to have never left your room
  last night?

Iris:
  Yes. That's exactly right.

*Iris's Testimony added
to the Court Record.*

Edgeworth:
  The trial starts tomorrow...
  I promise you, I will win.

Edgeworth:
  I'm going to win so that
  you and Phoenix Wright can
  see each other again.

Iris:
  ...!

Edgeworth:
  But when I do...

Edgeworth:
  ...you must promise me
  that you will tell him
  your secret.

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  But it's pointless...

Edgeworth:
  Why would you say that?

Iris:
  Because I may know who
  Phoenix Wright is...

Iris:
  But...
  He has no idea who I am.

MOVE TO: "Heavenly Hall"

February 8
Heavenly Hall

Gumshoe:
  Whoa! Not much of a
  view down here, huh?

Gumshoe:
  It's still better than the
  view from my apartment,
  though.

Edgeworth:
  Tsk! Someone's here!
  Hide yourself, Detective!

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

? ? ?:
  Oh! Why why why!?
  Why does this always happen!?

Butz:
  Whenever I find a girl I like,
  they always run away!

Butz:
  I even chased one of them
  to Tibet... Next it's going
  to be prison, I guess.

Butz:
  ...I'll steal that detective's
  wallet. That'll get me
  locked up for sure.

Butz:
  ...Nah. I can't do that to
  someone who looks like he's
  down on his luck.

Gumshoe:
  ...He's just talking to
  himself.

Edgeworth:
  Shh! Be quiet and listen!

Butz:
  I knew it... I shouldn't
  have done that!
  I blew it again...

Edgeworth:
  ("Done that"?
  What did he do, I wonder...)

Gumshoe:
  Hey! You!
  About what you just said...
  I got an objection!

Butz:
  Wh-Wh-Wh-What the...!?
  Ed-Edgey!
  You dirty rat!

Edgeworth:
  *glare*
  (Gumshoe... You oaf...!)

Gumshoe:
  I-I'm sorry, sir!

Gumshoe:
  Before I knew it, I was
  shouting out, "Objection!".

Gumshoe:
  And in a loud, commanding
  voice, too! I even pointed
  with my pointer finger!

Edgeworth:
  ...You've watched too
  many trials.

Gumshoe:
  I'm sorry!

Edgeworth:
  OK, Larry, the jig is up.
  What have you got to say
  for yourself?

Butz:
  Ungh...

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ River ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   This is the Eagle River, sir.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It runs pretty fast, so it
+   doesn't ice over, even in
+   the winter.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   If it had iced over, Wright
+   would have been in some
+   serious trouble.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   You're right about that!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   He would've landed on
+   the ice, and slid downstream
+   to who knows where.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (...Not exactly what I meant,
+   but alright...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Bridge +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   It's a little far, but I have
+   a pretty clear view of Dusky
+   Bridge from here.
+
+ Butz:
+   Ahh. I still can't believe it!
+   ...Really.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...?
+   What is it, Larry?
+
+ Butz:
+   Huh! Err, uhh, nothing.
+   It's nothing!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Sounds pretty suspicious
+   to me!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (Something about that
+   statement smells... And you
+   know what they say...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Stairs +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   These go all the way to Dusky
+   Bridge. It's a pretty long,
+   but easy, walk.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I fell down 4 times on
+   my way down here, sir!
+
+ Butz:
+   Oh, sorry about that,
+   Detective.
+
+ Butz:
+   I ate four bananas and tossed
+   their peels on the stairs on
+   my way down here...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   What!? So that's what I was
+   slipping on!
+
+ Butz:
+   Be careful on the way back.
+   Those deadly banana peels
+   are still out there.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Hmm... That's a real important
+   piece of information right
+   there, Mr. Edgeworth!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Flags ornament +++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   What is this festive-looking
+   ornament?
+
+ Butz:
+   It reminds me of art class
+   in grade school.
+
+ Butz:
+   We used to have a lot of fun
+   decorating the classroom with
+   origami. Remember?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   W-Well, I...
+
+ Butz:
+   Oh, yeah...
+   You were never any good
+   at it.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Really?
+
+ Butz:
+   Yeah, this guy was so bad,
+   he couldn't even fold a
+   dollar, let alone a crane.
+
+ Butz:
+   Everyone tried to comfort
+   him, but he would just sit
+   there sobbing.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Really? I never would have
+   expected that.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Be quiet already! I'll never
+   forget the shame of that day!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   You want a crane! I can now
+   make a perfect quarter-inch
+   crane without a single flaw!
+
+ Butz:
+   ...
+   You know, Edgey...
+
+ Butz:
+   Nothing for nothing, but a
+   quarter-inch crane without
+   a single flaw is not easy.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah, that's quite a feat,
+   Prosecutor Edgeworth!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   (Grr... This is exactly why
+   I hate childhood friends...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The shack ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   That's a horrible graffiti
+   problem you've got there, pal.
+
+ Butz:
+   You don't know anything,
+   Detective. This is art!
+
+ Butz:
+   It's an expression of my
+   bittersweet love for Iris.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Larry. Do you know what
+   the difference between
+   graffiti and true art is?
+
+ Butz:
+   ...
+
+ Butz:
+   It's how the artist himself
+   defines it, right?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...
+   (I should've seen that one
+   coming.)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Well, if that's the case, then
+   all of my lunchboxes are
+   masterpieces too, pal!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Shack's roof +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   The straw roof is totally
+   covered with freshly fallen
+   powdery snow.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Wow, makes a nice image,
+   doesn't it? I always did like
+   the rustic look.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   "Heavenly Hall"...
+   I suppose it's an appropriate
+   name in some sense.
+
+ Butz:
+   You got that right.
+
+ Butz:
+   Look at that bridge up there.
+   This place has to be heaven,
+   because that thing is hell.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...
+   You would do well to remember,
+   Larry...
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...that this is a sacred place
+   to some people.
+

*
* Butz:
*   ......

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

*** Bikini profile *************************
*
* Butz:
*   I'm just no good with
*   people like her.
*
* Butz:
*   She reminds me too much
*   of my mother.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*   May I speak now?
*
* Butz:
*   Huh? Sure.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I don't care how you feel
*   about her personally...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...just tell me what you know
*   about her and how she's
*   related to the case.
*
* Butz:
*   ...
*
* Butz:
*   Don't you think you're
*   expecting a little too
*   much of me?
*
* Butz:
*   I'm just a 25 year old
*   jobless bum trying to
*   be an apprentice artist!
*
* Butz:
*   Ha ha ha ha!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (...I'm actually starting

*** Maya Fey profile ***********************

* Butz:

* Butz:
*   Nick was trying to go

*
* Butz:
*   But instead, he wound up
*   falling off the bridge.
*
* Butz:
*   I'm not surprised though.
*   Nick always gets himself
*   into trouble.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   (Well if that isn't the pot
*   calling the kettle black...)
*
* Butz:
*   I just hope that Maya

*
* Edgeworth:
*   Yes, well... Apparently she

*
* Butz:
*   Wh-What did you say!?

*
* Butz:
*   Why are you wasting your

-- The Night of the Crime --

Edgeworth:
  Alright, now you're going to
  tell me what you really saw
  last night...

Butz:
  Whoa. You're really upset,
  aren't you, Edgey?
  OK, I'll talk!

Edgeworth:
  ...Huh?
  (That was a bit too easy...)

Butz:
  Yeah, anyway! It was awesome!
  Never seen anything like it!

Butz:
  At around 10 o'clock last
  night, it started thundering.

Butz:
  I'd been sleeping...
  I'm not sure for how long.

Butz:
  Suddenly... ZING!
  The world in front of
  me went white!

Butz:
  Like I'd just been slapped
  in the face by my old
  girlfriend, Naomi!

Edgeworth:
  ...And then?

Butz:
  And then...
  It was on fire!
  The bridge was on fire!

Edgeworth:
  Dusky Bridge caught on fire!?
  Are you saying you saw it
  with your own eyes?

Butz:
  Hey! Why are you giving me
  the evil eye!?
  I'm telling the truth!

Edgeworth:
  (Hmm... There are still 3
  Psycholocks remaining...)

Edgeworth:
  (That means he's still
  trying to hide something...)

Edgeworth:
  By the way, Larry...
  Where were you when
  you saw that happen?

Butz:
  Wh-Wh-Wh-Where you say?
  Wh-Wh-What do you mean!?

Edgeworth:
  What do you mean,
  "What do I mean"!?
  ...Just answer the question!

Butz:
  I-I was in my own room...
  by the Main Hall!

Butz:
  Where else would I be!?

Edgeworth:
  As usual, you're as
  transparent as an empty
  jelly jar.

Edgeworth:
  The problem, I suspect, lies
  there...

Butz:
  Th-Th-Th-Th-There?
  Wh-Wh-Wh-Wh-Whaddya
  mean th-th-there?

Edgeworth:
  It's impossible for you to
  have seen lightning strike
  Dusky Bridge from your room!

x Edgeworth:

x
x Edgeworth:
x   Look at this, Larry!
x
x Butz:
x   ...
x   Hey, forget about that.
x   Try drinking your hot water.
x
x Butz:
x   If you don't drink it fast
x   it's going to get cold.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   Oh, sorry...
x
x Edgeworth:
x   (It's cold alright...
x   The water...
x   And my evidence.)
x
x Butz:
x   Well? Have you calmed
x   down yet?
x
x Edgeworth:
x   Um, yes... I'm going
x   to think it over again.
x
x Butz:
x   H-Hey, I'm telling you...
x   there's nothing to think over!
x
x Butz:
x   I was in my room doing
x   "she loves me, she loves me
x   not" with a bunch of flowers.

*Present Hazakura Temple Map*

Edgeworth:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Edgeworth:
  This is a map of the area.
  Take a look around the
  vicinity of Hazakura Temple.

Butz:
  Wh-What am I looking for?

Edgeworth:
  I think that should be
  fairly obvious.

Edgeworth:
  The Main Hall is surrounded
  by trees and it's impossible
  to see the bridge from here.

Butz:
  What...!?
  Why didn't you tell me
  that before!?

*1 LOCK BROKEN*

Edgeworth:
  ...Well? How about it?

Butz:
  How about what?

Edgeworth:
  Do you feel like talking now?

Butz:
  About what?

Edgeworth:
  ...
  (It looks like it won't be
  that easy after all...)

Edgeworth:
  ...You leave me no choice.
  I'll have to move on to the
  next step.

Edgeworth:
  You weren't in your room at
  the temple. So then...
  Where were you?

Butz:
  Y-Y-You don't know that
  I wasn't in my room!

Edgeworth:
  (So where was Larry, and
  why was he there...?)

Edgeworth:
  (If I've read the situation up
  to this point correctly, the
  answer is fairly obvious.)

Edgeworth:
  ...Very well then.
  Let's test my theory.

Edgeworth:
  The place you witnessed
  lightning striking Dusky
  Bridge from was... here!

xxx Present anywhere else xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
x
x Edgeworth:
x   *TAKE THAT!*
x
x Edgeworth:
x   This is where you were!
x   Well, what do you think,
x   Larry!?
x
x Butz:
x   Oh... Not much I guess.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   ...
x   I'm sorry, but what kind of
x   answer is that?
x
x Butz:
x   Well, you were just making
x   small talk, right? Like "How
x   are you doing?" or something.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   ...Larry.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   Look at the expression on
x   my face. Do I look like I was
x   just making small talk?
x
x Butz:
x   To be honest?
x   No... I guess not.
x   Ha ha ha ha ha...
x
x Edgeworth:
x   (It appears I didn't think it
x   through carefully enough.)
x
x RETURN TO QUESTION

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

*Present Heavenly Hall*

Edgeworth:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Edgeworth:
  The place you saw the
  lightning strike from was
  naturally Heavenly Hall!

Butz:
  ...Wh-Why would I be hanging
  out in this old shack?

Butz:
  It's freezing cold, there's no
  electricity, and it could fall
  apart at any minute...

Edgeworth:
  Larry... How do you know
  that anyway?

Edgeworth:
  How do you know there's
  no electricity? After all,
  it's not that dark yet.

Butz:
  Ah... Uh-oh!

Edgeworth:
  In other words, you have just
  provided evidence to prove
  my theory...

Edgeworth:
  My theory that you've at least
  once in your life visited
  Heavenly Hall after sunset!

*1 LOCK BROKEN*

Butz:
  I have to admit I'm impressed,
  Edgey! You're in a totally
  different league from Nick.

Edgeworth:
  ...That's nice.
  Now tell me.

Edgeworth:
  What were you doing at this
  cold little shack last night?

Butz:
  That's what you might call...
  A "Fair de Core".

Edgeworth:
  I think you mean
  "affaire de coeur".

Edgeworth:
  Could it be you were...
  waiting for someone?

Butz:
  Ooooh nooo!

Butz:
  Y-You really are one
  scary guy, you know...

Edgeworth:
  I believe that last night, you
  were waiting for this person
  to come meet you!

x
x Butz:
x   You should save your finger
x   pointing for the courtroom.
x
x Edgeworth:
x   Tsk...!
x
x Butz:
x   It's no wonder people call you
x   a workaholic. You work too
x   hard! You should be like me!
x
x Edgeworth:

x   hard" than "hardly work"
x   like a loafaholic like you...)
x
x Edgeworth:
x   In any case...
x   I know you were waiting
x   for someone!
x
x Butz:
x   Yeah, but... It's like I said.

Edgeworth:
  There's only one person you'd
  wait for in a horrible place
  like this, Larry.

Butz:
  I told you before...
  Don't call me "Larry"...

Edgeworth:
  The person you were
  waiting for was... Iris!

Butz:
  Ohh... Suddenly I feel
  cold all over, Edgey.

Edgeworth:
  No doubt because of my
  chilly glare.

Butz:
  So you think I got the hots
  for Sister Iris, huh...?

Butz:
  D-Do you have some
  kind of evidence!?

Butz:
  You got something that proves
  I was waiting for her!?
  Or are you just guessing?

  line and end this ridiculous
  little game...)

Edgeworth:

Edgeworth:
  You called her to this spot
  with a pathetic blackmail
  letter!

Butz:
  Oh! H-Hey!
  G-G-Give that back!
  You're embarrassing me!

Butz:
  What are you doing with
  that anyway!?

Edgeworth:
  That's not important!
  ...I misjudged you, Larry.

Butz:
  What do you mean...?

Edgeworth:
  Taking advantage of a woman's
  frailty like that! You should
  be ashamed of yourself!

Butz:
  Ohhh... OHHHH!

Edgeworth:
  First of all, what's this at
  the top of the letter?
  It says, "Salutation here"!

Butz:
  W-Well that's what it said
  in that book, "Letter Writing
  for Dummies"!

Edgeworth:
  You're not supposed to
  actually write that!

Edgeworth:
  That's where you're supposed

February 9, 9:47 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 1

Iris:
  Oh my... Mr. Laurice feels
  that way about... me...?

Edgeworth:
  Apparently... he isn't aware
  of your real secret at all.

Iris:
  ...
  ......

Edgeworth:
  This is no time to be
  embarrassed!

Iris:
  I-I'm sorry!

Iris:
  I'm just... hardly accustomed
  to that sort of thing.

Edgeworth:
  Worry not... And in any case,
  whatever it was that he saw on
  the night of the incident...

Edgeworth:
  Mark my words, I will drag
  it out him!

Iris:
  Does that mean... Mr. Laurice
  is the witness today...?

Edgeworth:
  ...No.

Edgeworth:
  I believe that nun...
  will be the first to take
  the stand.

Iris:
  Sister Bikini...

Edgeworth:
  She claims to have seen the
  very instant in which you
  carried out the crime.

Iris:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  I just want to ask you one
  last time.

Edgeworth:
  It really wasn't you who
  killed Ms. Elise Deauxnim,
  correct?

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  That is correct. It wasn't
  me.

Edgeworth:
  ...Very well then.

Iris:
  Um... Mr. Edgeworth?

Edgeworth:
  ...Yes?

Iris:
  You are a prosecutor...
  aren't you?

Iris:
  Are you sure about this?
  If your true identity is
  revealed...

Edgeworth:
  Don't worry.
  ...I've taken the necessary
  steps.

Iris:
  Y-You have...?

Edgeworth:
  ...Iris.

Edgeworth:
  It is a prosecutor's job
  to doubt people.

Iris:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  But right now... I am a
  defense attorney.

Edgeworth:
  A defense attorney's job is to
  believe in people, and to
  believe until the bitter end.

Edgeworth:
  That's what a friend of mine
  told me once.

Iris:
  Mr. Edgeworth...

Edgeworth:
  You may pass judgment on me
  from the defendant's chair.
  You are the one to decide...

Edgeworth:
  ...whether or not I am able
  to do the task I have been
  entrusted.

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  ...Very well, sir.
  I leave my defense in
  your capable hands.

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

February 9, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 7

Judge:
  Court is now in session for
  the trial of Sister Iris of
  Hazakura Temple.

Edgeworth:
  The defense is ready,
  Your Honor.

Judge:
  ...The defense does indeed
  appear to be ready...

Judge:
  However, the same cannot be
  said for the prosecution in
  this case.

Edgeworth:
  ...Indeed.

Judge:
  I'm not sure I like such
  blatant waste of this
  court's time.

Judge:
  An empty prosecutor's chair
  can only mean...

Judge:
  ...that the prosecutor has no
  confidence in their ability to
  prove their case.

Judge:
  It would seem this case is
  already over before it had
  a chance to begin.

Judge:
  I am ready to announce my
  verdict at this time. This
  court finds the defendant...

? ? ?:
  *OBJECTION!*

? ? ?:
  The prosecution...
  stands ready.

Judge:
  A-And you are...?

von Karma:
  Franziska von Karma...
  Prosecuting prodigy.

Judge:
  V-Von Karma, you say...?

Judge:
  Perchance, you wouldn't be of
  any relation to the legendary
  prosecutor Manfred von Karma?

von Karma:
  ...

von Karma:
  Legends are a thing of the
  past. I am a Von Karma.
  That is all.

von Karma:
  Upon a special request, I flew
  in today for the purposes of
  prosecuting this case.

Judge:
  Y-You did!?
  Then... you must be quite a
  big shot, eh!

Judge:
  By the way,
  Mr. Edgeworth...

Edgeworth:
  Yes, Your Honor?

Judge:
  I'm almost certain that I've
  seen you somewhere before.
  Or am I just imagining things?

Judge:
  You look very much like a
  prosecutor I met once...

Edgeworth:
  ...I believe you are imagining
  things, Your Honor.

Judge:
  Ms. von Karma?
  Do you have anything to say?

von Karma:
  ...

von Karma:
  There is no such weakling as
  this man among those of the
  Prosecutor's Office.

Judge:
  There... there isn't...?
  But I'm sure... once before,
  in this courtroom...

Judge:
  Ack!

von Karma:
  ...I told you, there is no
  such weakling!

Judge:
  Wh-What is that!? A whip!?
  I'm not sure I care for such a
  thing in my courtroom!

Judge:
  B-Bailiff! Remove that whip,
  at...

Edgeworth:
  *HOLD IT!*

Edgeworth:
  ...I have no objection to
  the whip.

Judge:
  Y-You don't...?

Edgeworth:
  The prosecution can wield a
  whip or drink seventeen cups
  of coffee...

Edgeworth:
  But there is still only one
  truth. That is what I stand
  here to prove today!

von Karma:
  This promises to be
  interesting...
  Miles Edgeworth.

von Karma:
  ...I had expected to face
  Phoenix Wright here today.

von Karma:
  But looking at you now...

von Karma:
  ...maybe this is what I have
  been waiting for all this
  time.

von Karma:
  Miles Edgeworth! I will not
  allow this chance to crush
  you slip through my fingers!

Edgeworth:
  ...I see you brought your
  flair for the histrionic.

Judge:
  Allow me to add to the things
  I'm not sure about... People
  acting bizarrely in my court!

Judge:
  Uwa-hah!

von Karma:
  ...The stage is set.
  Now continue with the
  proceedings, Your Honor.

Judge:
  Very well. Ms. von Karma,
  please give an outline of
  this case.

Judge:
  With as little whipping as
  possible!

von Karma:
  The murder victim is the
  famed picture book author,
  Ms. Elise Deauxnim.

von Karma:
  Her body was found in the
  Hazakura Temple courtyard.

von Karma:
  She had been stabbed through
  the torso by a ceremonial
  sword from a golden statue.

Judge:
  The sword in this picture...
  is the weapon in question,
  correct...?

Judge:
  ...Very well.
  The court accepts this
  photo of the crime scene.

*Crime Photo added to the
Court Record.*

von Karma:
  There is no mistake. This
  was the doing of Sister Iris.

von Karma:
  After all... there is a
  witness to her crime.

Judge:
  ...Very well.

Judge:
  Please bring this witness to
  the stand!

Edgeworth:
  (And so it begins...)

Edgeworth:
  (My first and my last trial...
  as a defense attorney!)

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

von Karma:
  ...Witness. State your name
  and occupation. Please.

Judge:
  H-Hold on here! I'm not sure
  about being not sure if
  I care for this at all!

Judge:
  Witness! Please stand up
  nice and straight!

Edgeworth:
  If I recall correctly...

Edgeworth:
  ...there are a few milk crates
  in the defendant's lobby for
  witnesses with bad backs.

Judge:
  Bailiff!
  Fetch a crate for this
  poor lady, please!

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

von Karma:
  ...Once again. Your name
  and occupation, please.

Bikini:
  Little old me? Well, I'm the
  head nun of Hazakura Temple
  on Eagle Mountain.

Bikini:
  My name is Bikini.
  You got it? Bikini.
  Nice to meet everyone.

Judge:
  ...

Judge:
  But you don't appear to be
  wearing a bikini right now...

Judge:
  Uwah!

von Karma:
  ...The courtroom is the garden
  of holy judgment.

von Karma:
  Those with lechery in their
  hearts should leave this
  sanctuary at once!

Judge:
  Y-You want me to leave!?

Bikini:
  No need to get your bikinis in
  a twist! Let me tell you, I'm
  a sight to behold in summer!

Bikini:
  Wha ha ha! Ha ha ha! Ha ha!

Edgeworth:
  In any case...

Edgeworth:
  Witness. I hear that you
  saw the crime take place on
  the night in question.

Bikini:
  That's right!

Bikini:
  I can still hardly believe it
  myself, to be honest.

Bikini:
  There's no way dear little
  Iris could do anything like
  that...

Judge:
  Let us hear what you have
  to say then.

Judge:
  First, tell us aboot your own
  movements that night, eh!

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Night of the Murder --

(1)
Bikini:
  That night I was helping an
  acolyte with her training in
  the Inner Temple. But...

(2)
Bikini:
  Well, as you can see, my
  back likes to act up.
  Violently.

(3)
Bikini:
  So, I left Iris to help the
  acolyte, and returned to
  Hazakura Temple.

(4)
Bikini:
  There's no bath at the Inner
  Temple, you see, and I needed
  a long, hot soak.

(5)
Bikini:
  It was after I had finished,
  just as I was heading back...
  that's when I saw it!

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

Judge:
  Hmm...

Judge:
  So it was simply coincidence
  that you found yourself
  returning to Hazakura Temple?

Bikini:
  ...Yes, you could say that.

Bikini:
  If my back hadn't been in so
  much pain, I would have stayed
  at the Inner Temple.

Edgeworth:
  (That sounds like a pretty
  important statement she
  just made...)

von Karma:
  There is only one problem
  with this testimony that I
  can see...

von Karma:
  And you're not about to fall
  at the first hurdle, now are
  you, Miles Edgeworth?

Edgeworth:
  ...

Judge:
  Mr. Edgeworth.
  ...Please begin your cross-
  examination.

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Night of the Murder --

(1)
Bikini:
  That night I was helping an
  acolyte with her training in
  the Inner Temple. But...

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       What is this Inner Temple...?

     Bikini:
       Well, see, conversing with the
       spirits is what we train
       people to do, right?

     Judge:
       We'll be the ones asking you
       the questions, madam.

     Bikini:
       ...In order to do that, a
       place strong in spiritual
       power is required.

     Bikini:
       There's a small temple across
       Dusky Bridge, called the
       Inner Temple.

     Bikini:
       Acolytes must spend an entire
       night there to undergo intense
       training.

     Edgeworth:
       And how exactly do you help
       with this process...?

     Bikini:
       It is all quite exacting.
       It can't be performed without
       a nun supervising.

     von Karma:
       Like a tutor, watching to make
       sure a spoiled child studies.

     Edgeworth:
       (A tutor with a whip, in your
       case.)

     Edgeworth:
       If that is the case...

     Edgeworth:
       ...then why did you return to
       Hazakura Temple, where the
       murder took place?

(2)
Bikini:
  Well, as you can see, my
  back likes to act up.
  Violently.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       Violently...?

     Bikini:
       That's right. It's no laughing
       matter, especially in winter!

     Bikini:
       I can't hold anything heavier
       than a knife and fork during
       the cold months!

     Bikini:
       Just being alive is like
       strict training!

     Bikini:
       Wah ha ha! Wha ha! Wah ha ha!

     Edgeworth:
       On the night of the murder,
       was this fabulous back of
       yours hurting again...?

     Bikini:
       That's right. Raging like a
       bull in a pigpen. I almost
       fainted once or twice!

     Bikini:
       I just knew that unless I
       warmed it up, it was going
       to finally finish me off!

(3)
Bikini:
  So, I left Iris to help the
  acolyte, and returned to
  Hazakura Temple.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       You "left Iris to help"...
       With what?

     Bikini:
       What do you think? The
       acolyte's training, of course.

     Bikini:
       It was just past 10 PM, so
       we were starting to enter into
       the training exercises proper.

     Judge:
       Wasn't it your place to
       remain with the disciple?

     Bikini:
       Well, the job is simply to
       watch over the acolyte so
       that they don't pass away.

     Edgeworth:
       Just to confirm this point
       again, that night...

     Edgeworth:
       ...you met Iris in the Inner
       Temple, correct?

     Bikini:
       Yes, yes. She's a gentle,
       honest girl.

     Bikini:
       She's never once failed to
       follow my directions.

(3b)
Bikini:
  Iris came to the Inner Temple.
  She was dressed exactly as
  she had been at dinner.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       Are you sure that you're
       not making a mistake...?

     Bikini:
       ...You, young man, need to
       get your estimation of me
       up from the floor!

     Edgeworth:
       Nngh...!

     Bikini:
       Iris always wears the same
       clothes.

     Bikini:
       The smallest thing out of
       place would have stood out
       like a sore thumb to me!

     Bikini:
       You're making a mistake,
       thinking I made a mistake!

     Judge:
       ...An excellent finish there,
       witness.

     Edgeworth:
       (Still, I have to wonder...)

(4)
Bikini:
  There's no bath at the Inner
  Temple, you see, and I needed
  a long, hot soak.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       ...So you returned to the
       Hazakura Temple in order to
       take a bath?

     Bikini:
       My back is to blame for
       everything.

     Bikini:
       It's a "do or be done in"
       kind of world, after all.

     Edgeworth:
       How long were you in the
       bath for, if you don't
       mind me asking?

     Bikini:
       ...

     Bikini:
       My my my, what a filthy little
       rogue you are! I know what's
       on your mind!

     Edgeworth:
       ...?

     Bikini:
       I bet your next question is
       going to be, "Where exactly
       did you wash?"

     Bikini:
       Ah, THIS is why you have to
       watch the young ones...

     Edgeworth:
       W-What are you going on
       about!? I was...

     Edgeworth:
       Gwah!

     von Karma:
       ...Pathetic, Miles Edgeworth.

     Judge:
       The lowest of the low.

     Edgeworth:
       (Is there some sort of
       "Kick Me" sign stuck to the
       defense's bench!?)

     Bikini:
       Anyway, I couldn't afford to
       be away from my post for too
       long, you understand, so...

(5)
Bikini:
  It was after I had finished,
  just as I was heading back...
  that's when I saw it!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       The crime took place in
       the courtyard, correct...?

     Bikini:
       When you go from my room to
       the Main Hall...

     Bikini:
       ...you have to take a winding
       hallway from which you can see
       the courtyard.

     von Karma:
       That's right.
       In other words...

     von Karma:
       ...it was pure coincidence
       that the witness saw the crime
       taking place before her eyes.

     von Karma:
       There was no complicated
       set-up in this case!

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       That certainly seems to be
       true.

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

Edgeworth:
  (There is indeed only one
  problem with this testimony.)

Edgeworth:
  (If I can clearly point out
  what it is, then I can begin
  to quantify...)

Edgeworth:
  (...just how good this
  witness's memory and
  observation skills are.)

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*Present Iris's Testimony* at (3)

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  ...Witnesses have to undergo
  their own trials, I'm afraid.

Edgeworth:
  The defendant's fate rests on
  their powers of observation
  and memory, after all.

Bikini:
  Well, well, well. Don't worry!
  I'm more than up to the task!

Bikini:
  I'm a woman of faith, after
  all. The head honcho of
  Hazakura Temple.

Edgeworth:
  In that case, Ms. Honcho...
  I'd like you to explain
  something for me.

Edgeworth:
  The discrepancy between your
  testimony and that of the
  defendant, Iris.

Edgeworth:
  She claims that after ringing
  the lights out bell, she went
  back and stayed in her room.

Edgeworth:
  ...Which means! She did not go
  to the Inner Temple at all!

Bikini:
  N... No...!
  She said that...?

von Karma:
  *OBJECTION!*

von Karma:
  A defendant or a witness...

von Karma:
  Who is more likely to lie,
  do you suppose?

von Karma:
  The defendant is simply lying
  to cover her back!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  But that is completely
  illogical.

Edgeworth:
  The murder was committed in
  the courtyard of Hazakura
  Temple.

Edgeworth:
  Claiming that she "went to the
  Inner Temple" would make for
  a much better alibi.

von Karma:
  ...!

Bikini:
  But that is odd...

Bikini:
  Whatever the reason...
  I can't believe that she would
  lie...!

Judge:
  Hmm... she does indeed have
  honest eyes!

Judge:
  Uwaaaah!

von Karma:
  ...All people lie.
  That is my belief.

Judge:
  Why am I the only one being
  whipped in here...!?

Judge:
  Anyway! Neither the witness
  nor the defendant have any
  reason to lie!

Judge:
  Which means...

Judge:
  We must call your memory into
  question...

Bikini:
  Dear, dear, dear. You're older
  than me and yet you want to
  play that game, do you?

Judge:
  A-Ah, well, that isn't
  exactly what I...

Bikini:
  My memory is perfect! Crystal
  clear! Especially in winter!

Judge:
  Then... I suppose it's too
  early to end this cross-
  examination, eh.

Judge:
  Mr. Edgeworth. If you are
  going to question the memory
  of this witness...

Judge:
  ...you will need to show
  me a more decisive piece
  of evidence.

Edgeworth:
  ...Understood, Your Honor.
  (I was naïve to think that
  alone would do the trick.)

Judge:
  Then please add your comments
  aboot Iris to the testimony...

Judge:
  And let us return to the
  cross-examination.

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  ...Witness. Let's get one
  thing straight.

Edgeworth:
  The defendant whom you claim
  to have met...

Edgeworth:
  ...she was wearing this
  "Demon-Warding Hood", correct?

Bikini:
  Of course!

Bikini:
  That is a very important
  piece of clothing, I'll have
  you know!

Bikini:
  Wha ha ha! Wha ha ha! Ha ha...
  Wait a minute...

von Karma:
  *OBJECTION!*

von Karma:
  H-Hold it right there!
  Why do you have that...!?

Edgeworth:
  That's the question of the
  day, now isn't it...
  Ms. von Karma?

Edgeworth:
  I'll have you know that this
  hood was given to someone
  as a gift that night.

Edgeworth:
  Before the lights out bell
  was rung.

von Karma:
  W... What!?

Edgeworth:
  ...You know where I'm going
  with this, don't you?

Edgeworth:
  If the witness had seen the
  defendant as she claims...

Edgeworth:
  ...the defendant couldn't
  have been wearing this
  very hood!

Bikini:
  Well well well!

Edgeworth:
  (It's not a bad feeling at
  all, exposing contradictions
  like this...)

Edgeworth:
  (Now I understand that happy
  look on Wright's face every
  time he does it...)

Judge:
  Order! Order in the court!
  Witness, your response...

Judge:
  Wuahaaa!

von Karma:
  ...Sister.

von Karma:
  This hood... You have spare
  ones around the temple, don't
  you?

Bikini:
  Spares... Well...

Bikini:
  I do tend to make too many of
  them.

Judge:
  I see...
  A stockpile. A surplus of
  hoods, eh?

Bikini:
  Each nun is only given
  one hood.

Bikini:
  This should be the only hood
  that Iris owned...

Judge:
  Hmm...
  Then this is quite strange!

Judge:
  Waaaah!

von Karma:
  If there was a surplus of
  hoods, then she could have
  worn one of those!

von Karma:
  ...There is no contradiction
  here!

Judge:
  Hmm...

Edgeworth:
  (I'm sorry to break this to
  you, Ms. von Karma... but you
  won't get away that easily.)

Edgeworth:
  (Discrepancies such as this
  will sow seeds in any human
  heart.)

Edgeworth:
  (The seeds of doubt.)

Judge:
  ...Witness.

Judge:
  While I don't wish to call
  your testimony into doubt...

Judge:
  ...you must give every detail
  with precision.

Bikini:
  I-I'm not sure I'm comfortable
  going along with this...

von Karma:
  Sister. You shall continue
  with your testimony.

von Karma:
  Tell us what you saw after
  finishing your bath, on your
  way back to the Inner Temple!

Edgeworth:
  (Those seeds of doubt are
  sprouting in the Judge's
  heart.)

Edgeworth:
  (They just need a little more
  stimulation to bear fruit...)

Edgeworth:
  (Contradictory
  stimulation.)

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- After My Bath --

(1)
Bikini:
  I finished my bath around 11,
  and I thought I should return
  to the Inner Temple.

(2)
Bikini:
  And as I was walking back... I
  heard a noise from the court-
  yard. I took a look and...

(3)
Bikini:
  Iris was...! Oh, Mystic Elise!
  And with that sword, of all
  things!

(4)
Bikini:
  Mystic Elise was staying in
  the corner room, which faces
  out onto the courtyard.

(5)
Bikini:
  The stabbing I saw must have
  occurred after she was
  pushed out of her window.

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

Judge:
  You saw a truly terrible
  sight, didn't you...?

Judge:
  If I was in your place...

Judge:
  ...then it would be much like
  Ms. von Karma whipping
  Mr. Edgeworth in two in court!

Judge:
  And me, seeing it all from
  this very chair!

Judge:
  ...Er, well, something like
  that.

Edgeworth:
  (This judge...)

Edgeworth:
  (His imagination is about as
  vivid and creative as
  Detective Gumshoe...)

von Karma:
  I would look the fool if I
  commented on such foolishness.

von Karma:
  Anyway, this case is mine...
  Miles Edgeworth!

Edgeworth:
  Calling everyone by their full
  name... Can't you do something
  about that habit of yours?

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- After My Bath --

(1)
Bikini:
  I finished my bath around 11,
  and I thought I should return
  to the Inner Temple.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       ...How far is it from your
       room to the Inner Temple?

     Bikini:
       Let me think a moment...

     Bikini:
       About twenty minutes, on these
       stumps of mine.

     Bikini:
       It's about 15 minutes to
       Dusky Bridge from Hazakura
       Temple.

     Bikini:
       The Inner Temple is just
       beyond the bridge.

     von Karma:
       Still, you never made it
       back there that night, did
       you?

     Bikini:
        T-That's right...

     Bikini:
       I was heading along the
       walkway toward the Main
       Hall...

(2)
Bikini:
  And as I was walking back... I
  heard a noise from the court-
  yard. I took a look and...

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       You say you heard a noise...?

     Bikini:
       "Thump"... Just like that.

     von Karma:
       ...That could only be the
       sound of the victim falling.

     Bikini:
       It's very quiet in the temple,
       you know.

     Bikini:
       You can even hear the snow
       falling from the branches.

     Bikini:
       "Thump"... Just like that.

     Judge:
       But then, couldn't this noise
       you heard have been snow
       falling to the ground?

     Bikini:
       ...

     Bikini:
       I never thought of that.

     Bikini:
       Wah ha ha. Wha ha ha. Ha ha...

     Judge:
       Hoh hoh. Hoh hoh. Hoh hoh...

     Judge:
       Uaaaaaah!

     von Karma:
       The next one to laugh gets
       a whipping!

     Bikini:
       Well. Whatever the source of
       the sound, I looked over at
       the courtyard and...

(3)
Bikini:
  Iris was...! Oh, Mystic Elise!
  And with that sword, of all
  things!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       ...This is the second time
       that the witness has testified
       to seeing the defendant.

     Edgeworth:
       But... some doubt remains in
       these claims.

     Bikini:
       Hey, just what does that
       mean!?

     Bikini:
       Just because you're a good-
       looking young man doesn't
       give you the right to...

     Edgeworth:
       The murderer who stabbed
       the victim with the sword...

     Edgeworth:
       Sister Bikini, try to recall
       exactly who it was you saw!
       As clearly as you can!

     Bikini:
       Hmm... Well. You're a
       handsome young man,
       so I'll forgive you.

     Bikini:
       ...
       Oh! Now that you mention it...

     Bikini:
       There was something awfully
       strange about her...

     Bikini:
       Something that has been
       bugging me all this time!

     Edgeworth:
       ...Please, don't keep us in
       suspense.

     Bikini:
       Her hood!

     von Karma:
       Her hood...?

     Bikini:
       That's right!
       ...It's coming back to me...

     Bikini:
       Iris... She wasn't wearing her
       hood!

     Bikini:
       I thought something was
       out of place, but...

     Bikini:
       It all makes sense now,
       doesn't it?

     Bikini:
       After all, she'd given that
       hood away to someone, right?

     Edgeworth:
       ...Urk!

     von Karma:
       Hah...

     von Karma:
       You've dug your own grave,
       Miles Edgeworth!

     Judge:
       What do you say,
       Mr. Edgeworth? Is this
       testimony important?

(3b)
Bikini:
  Now that you mention it...
  Iris didn't have her hood on.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
        You are sure about that...?

     Bikini:
       Yes. After all, we always
       wear the same clothes.

     Bikini:
       Ah! I don't mean because we're
       poor, you understand? It's
       our style. Yes, that's it!
 
     Edgeworth:
       ...There's absolutely no need
       to explain yourself.

     Bikini:
       Anyway! She looked different
       from normal, so that really
       stuck out.

     von Karma:
       Like me holding a whippet
       puppy instead of my whip.

     Edgeworth:
       (At least then it might bite
       you and not someone else...)

     Bikini:
       Iris didn't have her hood on.
       I'm sure of it!

     Judge:
       ...Very well.

     Judge:
       Now, please tell us aboot
       the victim, eh.

(4)
Bikini:
  Mystic Elise was staying in
  the corner room, which faces
  out onto the courtyard.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       The room the victim was
       staying in overlooked the
       courtyard, correct?

     Judge:
       Which means... the victim's
       room was on the second floor?

     Bikini:
       No, no. Hazakura Temple is
       a single story building.

     Bikini:
       But the mountain itself
       slopes downward...

     Bikini:
       ...which elevates the Main
       Gate side of the temple and
       the guest rooms in the back...

     Bikini:
       ...to about the height of a
       two story building.

     Judge:
       I see... And the victim was
       staying in one of these
       elevated rooms, correct?

     Bikini:
       Yes... I should know. I'm the
       one who carried her things to
       her room, after all...

(5)
Bikini:
  The stabbing I saw must have
  occurred after she was
  pushed out of her window.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       What makes you so sure of all
       this...?

     Bikini:
       It's just like I told
       you earlier...

     Bikini:
       "I heard a noise from the
       courtyard."
       OK?

     Bikini:
       "Thump"... Just like that.

     von Karma:
       You're one smart sister,
       I'll give you that.

     von Karma:
       The autopsy report states
       that...

     von Karma:
       ...the victim's body was
       covered in bruises...

     von Karma:
       ...indicating a fall from
       around 10 feet in height.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       It appears that the witness
       was not mistaken then.

     Bikini:
       Yep. Yep. I'm more than just
       a pretty face. Especially in
       winter!

     Bikini:
       I'm a woman of faith, after
       all. The head honcho of
       Hazakura Temple.

     Edgeworth:
       (There's only two of them
       working there...!)

     von Karma:
       What's wrong, Miles Edgeworth?
       No snappy comeback remark?

     Edgeworth:
       ...

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

Edgeworth:
  (...It doesn't feel like she
  is lying.)

Edgeworth: 
  (This is very powerful
  testimony, too.)

Edgeworth:
  (She claims to have seen the
  instant in which the defendant
  stabbed the victim...)

Edgeworth:
  (There are only two things
  I can believe in right now...)

Edgeworth:
  (My client, Iris, and my
  own abilities as a defense
  attorney.)

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*Present Elise's Autopsy Report* at (5)

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  ...Impressive logic. That's
  what I'd like to say, anyway.

Bikini:
  Oh please do! My brain is
  something else... especially
  in winter!

Edgeworth:
  However... I think you are
  overlooking one thing.

Edgeworth:
  ...Ms. von Karma. Would you
  be so kind as to take another
  look at the autopsy report?

von Karma:
  T-The autopsy report...?

Edgeworth:
  The victim did fall from a
  height of 10 feet.

Edgeworth:
  ...However.

Edgeworth:
  This fall...
  was after she was killed.

von Karma:
  Ah...!

Judge:
  T-That's right! It says
  "after death" right here!

Edgeworth:
  The scene the witness claims
  to have seen is contradictory!

Edgeworth:
  If the defendant stabbed and
  killed the victim there in
  the courtyard...

Edgeworth:
  ...how did the victim then go
  on to take a ten foot fall!?

von Karma:
  Aaah!

Judge:
  O-Order! Order!

Judge:
  The victim was killed and
  then fell!

Judge:
  If that is the case...

Judge:
  ...then the victim must have
  been killed in her room...
  Don't you agree?

von Karma:
  Th-That is the logical
  conclusion...

von Karma:
  Yes, that's right! The victim
  must have been stabbed by the
  defendant in her own room!

von Karma:
  And she was then thrown out
  of her window down into the
  courtyard below!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Were there any signs of a
  struggle in Ms. Deauxnim's
  room...?

von Karma:
  ...!

Edgeworth:
  She was stabbed with a sword!
  That would leave a blood
  stain, wouldn't you agree?

Judge:
  W-Well, Ms. von Karma?
  Was there any blood...?

Judge:
  Waaaaaah!

von Karma:
  ...No traces of blood were
  found in the victim's room.

Judge:
  ...Your whip has just caused
  traces of blood to be found
  on my glorious playoff beard.

Judge:
  However! If there was no
  blood in the room, then your
  claim that...

Judge:
  Waaaaah!

von Karma:
  I'm sure there's no need for
  me to go over this...

von Karma:
  ...as I'm sure Your Honor is
  well aware...

von Karma:
  ...of when a stab wound
  produces the most blood.

Judge:
  When it produces the most
  blood...?

von Karma:
  Very little blood is actually
  lost at the moment of a
  blade's insertion.

von Karma:
  If you want to talk about
  when the most blood would
  be lost from a body...

von Karma:
  ...that would be when the
  blade is removed.

Edgeworth:
  Indeed.
  With the weapon still in
  place...

Edgeworth:
  ...it acts like a lid on the
  wound.

Judge:
  That's true... With the weapon
  still in the body, there
  wouldn't be much bleeding...

Judge:
  A perfectly reasonable
  line of thinking!

von Karma:
  We have come to a
  conclusion then!

von Karma:
  The victim was thrown out of
  the window with the sword
  still in place...

von Karma:
  This removes all of the
  contradictions!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!
  I must admit that this is a
  probable version of events!

Edgeworth:
  (I'd expect no less from
  Franziska von Karma...)

Edgeworth:
  (She locates and takes control
  of every vital point!)

von Karma:
  ...Hmph...

Judge:
  It seems...

Judge:
  ...that we need a clearer
  testimony from the witness.

Judge:
  Remove all supposition on your
  part and tell us only the
  truth, please!

Judge:
  Witness! Please!
  Remain standing on the crate!

Bikini:
  Don't go selling me short
  now!

Bikini:
  The weight of winter snow
  has bent me out of shape!

Bikini:
  ...Especially my back and
  my mood!

von Karma:
  Sister.
  Please give us your
  testimony.

von Karma:
  I will give you a vigorous
  massage once we are finished
  here.

Edgeworth:
  (...With the whip?)

Bikini:
  ...Oh, boy.
  Alright, alright...

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Further Details --

(1)
Bikini:
  When I looked across at the
  scene, the sword was already
  in place.

(2)
Bikini:
  Thinking about it now, I
  didn't actually see her stab
  Mystic Elise.

(3)
Bikini:
  I've never seen so much blood
  before...

(4)
Bikini:
  That's when I fainted. You
  can't blame me, can you?

(5)
Bikini:
  And when I awoke... Mystic Ami
  was... stabbing Mystic Elise
  through the back!

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

Judge:
  Hmm...

Judge:
  This all confirms
  Ms. von Karma's theory...

von Karma:
  Von Karmas strive for
  nothing but perfection.

von Karma:
  Putting together such facts
  is nothing for me! You should
  know that, Miles Edgeworth!

Edgeworth:
   ("Perfection" is an
  impossibility,
  Franziska von Karma...)

Edgeworth:
  (And I'm here to teach you
  just that...)

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Further Details --

(1)
Bikini:
  When I looked across at the
  scene, the sword was already
  in place.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       At that time... was the
       victim bleeding?

     Bikini:
       Well... I was very shocked
       to be seeing all this, of
       course...

     Bikini:
       So I'm not entirely sure...

     Bikini:
       But I don't think I saw any
       blood. Not then.

     von Karma:
       ...I'm sure that you didn't.

     von Karma:
       The weapon was acting as a
       plug in the wound.

     Edgeworth:
       In any case... Let's be clear
       on one very important point.

     Edgeworth:
       Did you actually see the
       instant in which the victim
       was stabbed!?

(2)
Bikini:
  Thinking about it now, I
  didn't actually see her stab
  Mystic Elise.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       ...Think carefully. This is
       very important.

     Bikini:
       It's Iris we are talking
       about here! I'm thinking for
       all I'm worth!

     Bikini:
       ...

     Bikini:
       No, when I looked over, the
       sword was already in
       Mystic Elise's body.

     Judge:
       Hmmmmmm...

     Edgeworth:
       (It might not be
       conclusive, but...)

     Edgeworth:
       (...this testimony supports
       her theory.)

     von Karma:
       The victim was stabbed in
       her room and then dropped into
       the courtyard...

     von Karma:
       ...I think this proves it
       rather well, Miles Edgeworth.


(2b)
Bikini:
  I saw the instant in which
  the blade, plunged in to the
  hilt, was smoothly drawn out.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       "Smoothly", you say...
       You're saying you saw the
       sword smoothly slide out?

     Bikini:
       That's right...

     Bikini:
       The whole thing happened right
       next to the gold statue of
       Mystic Ami.

     Bikini:
       Mystic Elise was on the
       ground, and Iris was
       stooped over her.

     Bikini:
       The sword was buried up to
       the hilt.

     Bikini:
       When Iris stood up, the sword
       in her hand just slid out of
       Mystic Elise's body.

     Bikini:
       It slid out from that gaping
       wound...!
       Aaaah...

     Judge:
       It goes without saying...
       that if the sword was removed
       there would be bleeding.

     von Karma:
       ...Nothing out of place here.

     Edgeworth:
       (Is that really the case...?)

     Edgeworth:
       (I can't help but feel that
       something about this testimony
       is very out of place...)

     Edgeworth:
       (That something which couldn't
       possibly have happened...
       appears to have happened.)

(3)
Bikini:
  I've never seen so much blood

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       ...So you're saying that
       you saw the victim's blood?

     Bikini:
       T-That's right! Some of
       it had splattered onto
       Iris, too...

     von Karma:
       When the defendant was
       arrested, she was meditating
       in her room.

     von Karma:
       And her blood-flecked clothing
       was neatly folded in the
       corner.

     Edgeworth:
       Wh-What!?
       (Her clothes were blood-
       flecked as well...?)

     Judge:
       Hmmm...
       That seems quite conclusive
       to me...

Bikini:
  I've never seen so much blood
  before...

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       Was the bleeding caused by
       the killer removing the
       sword...?

     Bikini:
       No mistaking it! I remember it
       all, clear as day!

     Edgeworth:
       ...Don't you think that's a
       bit odd?

     von Karma:
       What do you mean,
       Miles Edgeworth?

     Edgeworth:
       Why would the killer pull
       out the sword?

     von Karma:
       What...?

     Edgeworth:
       If all she wanted to do was
       place the weapon in the hand
       of the gold statue...

     Edgeworth:
       ...then there was no reason to
       remove it from the body.

     Edgeworth:
       All that would've accomplished
       is causing the victim to bleed
       unnecessarily.

     Edgeworth:
       ...Your thoughts,
       Ms. von Karma?

     von Karma:
       T-That's...

     Judge:
       Indeed...
       It is strange, now that you
       mention it.

     Edgeworth:
       (I'm going to need to
       find an answer to this
       mystery, too...)

     von Karma:
       A-Anyway! The witness saw
       something terrible!

     von Karma:
       ...So what did you do after
       that, witness?

(4)
Bikini:
  That's when I fainted. You
  can't blame me, can you?

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       Now, on to what the
       killer did next...

     Edgeworth:
       You saw none of it? Correct?

     Bikini:
       Well...
       I was unconscious...

     von Karma:
       How long were you out for?

     Bikini:
       I don't know... 10, maybe
       20 minutes...?

     Bikini:
       A young man with a very
       prickly looking head woke
       me up.

     Bikini:
       ...By stepping on me,
       actually.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       I'm not sure I like that
       method of resuscitation!

     Bikini:
       Well, I wasn't asking for
       mouth-to-mouth, or anything
       of the sort...

     Bikini:
       ...but I would've welcomed a
       more gentle awakening right
       about then, let me tell you.

     Edgeworth:
       ...I shall have words with the
       offender personally.

     Edgeworth:
       What did you see upon
       awakening...?

(5)
Bikini:
  And when I awoke... Mystic Ami
  was... stabbing Mystic Elise
  through the back!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       By "Mystic Ami", you are
       referring to the golden
       statue, correct?

     Bikini:
       Just stabbing someone with
       the Shichishito, a sacred
       treasure, is terrible enough.

     Bikini:
       But to then make Mystic Ami
       hold the blade...!

     von Karma:
       Truly, a heinous, despicable
       crime.

     Edgeworth:
       It is easy to despise
       something. Anyone can do it.

     Edgeworth:
       However, there is something
       that cannot be done so
       easily...

     von Karma:
       Whatever it is, I'm sure
       it's doubly hard for you.
       Anyway, what is the problem?

     Edgeworth:
       Exactly why would the killer
       set up this gruesome scene?

     Edgeworth:
       Can anyone explain the
       reasoning behind that?

     von Karma:
       ...!

     Judge:
       Hmmmmm...
       No, I don't think I can.

     von Karma:
       ...

     von Karma:
       There isn't always a logical
       reason behind why someone
       acts!

     Bikini:
       That's true, so true.
       In early spring, for example,
       I often find myself...

     Edgeworth:
       ("There isn't always"...
       That phrase might come
       in handy someday.)

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

Edgeworth:
  (There are too many
  unnatural elements in this
  case...)

Edgeworth:
  (Why was it necessary to use
  the Shichishito from the Ami
  statue as a weapon?)

Edgeworth:
  (Why was the weapon finally
  placed back in the hand of
  the statue?)

Edgeworth:
  (If I can expose the flaws in
  this testimony, perhaps then I
  will begin to find the truth.)

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*Present Shichishito* at (2b)

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Sister Bikini.
  You are a reliable witness...

Edgeworth:
  At least, I'd like to think
  so. But there are too many
  contradictions here.

Bikini:
  W-What do you mean?
  You make it sound as though
  I'm a liar!

Bikini:
  But... You're a handsome
  young man, so I'll forgive
  you.

von Karma:
  What contradictions are
  you talking about?

Edgeworth:
  In the scene that the
  witness claims to have seen...

Edgeworth:
  ...the weapon was thrust up to
  its hilt into the victim.

Edgeworth:
  Furthermore... the killer
  withdrew the weapon smoothly
  from the body.

Edgeworth:
  ...However!
  Both of these are complete
  impossibilities!

Judge:
  What do you mean...?
  Please, explain you...

Judge:
  Uwaaaaah!

von Karma:
  Explain yourself!

Edgeworth:
  To start with... Do you think
  it would be possible to stab
  someone to the hilt with this?

Edgeworth:
  No matter how I look at the
  defendant, she doesn't appear
  strong enough for that.

von Karma:
  *OBJECTION!*

von Karma:
  "Doesn't appear"...?
  What meaningless dribble!

von Karma:
  I, too, may appear to be
  weak and frail...

von Karma:
  But I can crush men under my
  heel and make them weep,
  should I so choose!

Judge:
  The objection stands!

Judge:
  I wept a little back there,
  I must admit.

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  ...That isn't the only issue
  here.

Edgeworth:
  If this sword was truly
  stabbed into the body up to
  the hilt...

Edgeworth:
  Well, just look at all the
  branches on it. It certainly
  wouldn't come out smoothly.

von Karma:
  T-That's...

Edgeworth:
  We also have the problem of
  the amount of bleeding.

Edgeworth:
  It's true that when a blade is
  left in a body, it acts as a
  "plug" of sorts.

Edgeworth:
  However! When the weapon
  is shaped like this, it's an
  entirely different story.

Edgeworth:
  The wound would be too large
  for the blade to completely
  stop from bleeding!

von Karma:
  *OBJECTION!*

von Karma:
  T-That's nothing more than
  conjecture!

von Karma:
  In reality, the victim was
  stabbed with the Shichishito.

von Karma:
  Even a weapon of this
  nature...

von Karma:
  ...may still sometimes slide
  out smoothly, and may still
  sometimes stop the blood loss!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  I'm not finished.

Edgeworth:
  There is still one more...
  conclusive contradiction.

Judge:
  Y-You've still got more!?

Edgeworth:
  ...This one is simple.

Edgeworth:
  If this sword really was
  thrust in all the way to
  the hilt...

Edgeworth:
  ...why is there only blood
  on the tip of it?

von Karma:
  Ah...!

Edgeworth:
  If this witness is
  telling the truth...

Edgeworth:
  Then there should be blood
  along the entire length of
  the sword!

von Karma:
  Noooooo!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Ord--

Judge:
  Whaaaaaaaa!

von Karma:
  Bravo... Miles Edgeworth.

von Karma:
  Raising this many
  contradictions from a single
  piece of evidence!

von Karma:
  All the other attorneys I know
  could maybe manage one, if
  that!

Judge:
  But what does this all mean!?

Judge:
  You have proven contradictions
  regarding the murder weapon,
  but...

Edgeworth:
  ...Having come this far,
  there can only be one answer.

von Karma:
  And that is...?

Edgeworth:
  The weapon used to kill the
  victim...

Edgeworth:
  ...was not the Shichishito!

Judge:
  W-Whaaaaaaaaat!?

von Karma:
  A foolishly foolish idea born
  from the foolish mind of a
  foolhardy foolish fool.

Edgeworth:
  Let's examine this again. What
  was it that made us think this
  sword was the murder weapon?

Bikini:
  W-Well...

Bikini:
  It's because Mystic Ami
  was holding it...

Edgeworth:
  ...Exactly.
  However!

Edgeworth:
  If you reflect on this, that
  is the only basis we have
  to assume such a thing.

Edgeworth:
  The impression left by the
  scene was just too strong.
  That is what influenced us.

Edgeworth:
  It influenced us to believe
  that the Shichishito was the
  murder weapon!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!
  Waaaaaaaaah!

von Karma:
  So maybe the Shichishito was
  not the murder weapon.

von Karma:
  Even if that is the case...
  it changes nothing,
  Miles Edgeworth!

von Karma:
  The Sister here saw
  everything!

von Karma:
  She saw the defendant stab
  the victim with a sword-like
  object.

Judge:
  Hmmmmmm...
  That's true!

Judge:
  Your response, Mr. Edgeworth?

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  If that is so... I would like
  the prosecution to answer the
  obvious question it raises.

Judge:
  The obvious... question?

Edgeworth:
  ...Yes. Namely...

Edgeworth:
  Where did the real murder
  weapon disappear to?

von Karma:
  ...!

Edgeworth:
  It goes without saying that
  the police searched the Main
  Hall and the surrounding area.

Edgeworth:
  ...Perhaps the prosecution
  can enlighten us as to if a
  "sword-like object" was found.

von Karma:
  T-That's...

Judge:
  Answer the question,
  Ms. von Karma!

von Karma:
  ...

von Karma:
  No evidence of that kind was
  found.

Judge:
  Hmmmmm...
  Another mystery to throw
  onto the pile!

Judge:
  A trial without a murder
  weapon is a tricky beast!

Bikini:
  Excuse me...
  Could I say something...?

Bikini:
  I just remembered
  something, actually...

von Karma:
  ...What is it, Sister?

Bikini:
  I was just thinking...
  It's possible...

Bikini:
  ...that just maybe...
  what actually happened was...
  it was just over there...

Judge:
  ...
  What exactly are you going
  on aboot here?

Bikini:
  The murder weapon, I mean!
  Maybe...

Bikini:
  I think I might know where
  the sword was disposed of!

Edgeworth:
  You what!?

von Karma:
  Well then...

von Karma:
  I think we need to hear
  testimony from you one more
  time, Sister.

Edgeworth:
  (Impossible...!)

Edgeworth:
  (What else... What else could
  this old woman have seen!?)

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Location of the Weapon --

(1)
Bikini:
  I saw the murder at around
  11 PM...

(2)
Bikini:
  And after asking that it be
  reported, I went out to the
  Main Gate.

(3)
Bikini:
  And there... I saw tracks!
  Tracks that indicated the
  snowmobile had been used!

(4)
Bikini:
  It takes 15 minutes to walk
  to Dusky Bridge, but less
  than 5 using one of those!

(5)
Bikini:
  Maybe they threw the weapon
  into Eagle River and came
  back while I was knocked out?

(6)
Bikini:
  ...Iris could have done that.
  She can drive a snowmobile
  after all...

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

Judge:
  Hmmmmmm...

Judge:
  Witness. Please, tell us
  everything you know right
  away next time.

Bikini:
  Well. I'm not in the best
  of shape. What with my back
  and my age, you know.

von Karma:
  Quite...

von Karma:
  There were indeed snowmobile
  tracks in front of the Main
  Gate.

von Karma:
  Here is a photograph.

Judge:
  A snowmobile, eh... I see.
  Well, it certainly is an
  interesting theory...

von Karma:
  The tracks begin in
  front of Hazakura Temple...

von Karma:
  ...and run all the way to
  Dusky Bridge!

*Tracks Photo added to the
Court Record.*

von Karma:
  ...That solves your pesky
  little problem, yes?

von Karma:
  The Eagle River's current is
  quite swift, meaning that it
  doesn't freeze over in winter.

von Karma:
  Making it the perfect place to
  dispose of the murder weapon!

Edgeworth:
  (Did she really go to the
  river to dispose of the
  murder weapon...?)

Judge:
  Mr. Edgeworth!
  ...Your cross-examination,
  please.

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Location of the weapon --

(1)
Bikini:
  I saw the murder at around
  11 PM...

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       ...You are sure about the
       time?

     Bikini:
       Yes... I was worried about
       it, after all.

     Judge:
       Why was that?

     Bikini:
       Because I have a strong sense
       of responsibility. Especially
       at this time of year.

     Bikini:
       The acolyte was being
       doused in freezing
       water at the time...

     Bikini:
       I couldn't very well take
       it easy in the bath all night
       now, could I?

     Bikini:
       So at 11, I decided to leave
       Hazakura Temple.

     Edgeworth:
       (Her estimation of the time
       seems reliable, at least.)

     von Karma:
       Please continue, Sister.

(2)
Bikini:
  And after asking that it be
  reported, I went out to the
  Main Gate.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       You asked Phoenix Wright to
       report the crime, correct?

     Bikini:
       Right, right, the one who
       trampled me.

     Edgeworth:
       (It seems she is the type to
       hold a grudge...)

     Bikini:
       There isn't a phone in the
       Main Hall, so I sent him
       to the bridge.

     von Karma:
       Phoenix Wright...
       He didn't even have his
       cell phone on him?

     Edgeworth:
       He had forgotten it at home,
       apparently.

     von Karma:
       What a naïve boy, as always!

     von Karma:
       Not only do I always carry my
       phone, but I always have my
       whip in hand, too!

     Bikini:
       Anyway, I was really scared...
       And it was taking him a while
       to get back...

     Bikini:
       So I thought I'd go out by the
       Main Gate for a spell.

(3)
Bikini:
  And there... I saw tracks!
  Tracks that indicated the
  snowmobile had been used!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       As I recall, there was a
       snowmobile outside the
       Main Gate when I visited.

     Bikini:
       That's it. That's the only
       one we have.

     Bikini:
       It'll run no matter how much
       snow falls!

     Edgeworth:
       Now, you're certain the
       snowmobile was there at the
       Main Gate when you arrived?

     Bikini:
       Yes, of course. It was parked
       in front of the gate.

     von Karma:
       So... she had already gone,
       discarded the murder weapon,
       and returned by that time.

     Edgeworth:
       (...I'm not sure if this is
       really relevant...
       What should I do...?)

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

(4)
Bikini:
  It takes 15 minutes to walk
  to Dusky Bridge, but less
  than 5 using one of those!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       In that case... why didn't you
       use it yourself? You could've
       spared yourself some walking.

     Bikini:
       Ah! There's a reason for
       that! Have we got a moment
       for me to explain?

     Judge:
       I think that's why the
       question was asked
       in the first place...

     Bikini:
       ...It was about a month ago.

     Bikini:
       I was driving my beloved
       little snowmobile, happy
       as can be.

     Bikini:
       I'd fetched some water and
       was heading back when I went
       and crashed into a tree!

     Bikini:
       The tree and my back both
       went crunch. Just like that.
       Crunch.

     Judge:
       Hmm... Crunch.

      Bikini:
       ...I haven't been able to find
       the courage to ride anything
       since then...

     Bikini:
       Anyway, the killer must have
       used it!

(5)
Bikini:
  Maybe they threw the weapon
  into Eagle River and came
  back while I was knocked out?

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       Refresh our memory. How
       long were you knocked out
       for...?

     Bikini:
       Like I said, somewhere
       between 10 to 20 minutes.

     von Karma:
       It's possible to get to the
       bridge and back in 10 minutes
       using the snowmobile...

     Edgeworth:
       ...I have to concede that is
       more than enough time.

     von Karma:
       Is that all you wish to
       concede, Miles Edgeworth?

     Edgeworth:
       ...

(6)
Bikini:
  ...Iris could have done that.
  She can drive a snowmobile
  after all...

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       While it would have been
       possible, time-wise...

     Edgeworth:
       ...one element remains
       out of place here.

     Judge:
       Oh? And what would this
       mystery element be?

     Edgeworth:
       The killer's reasoning, Your
       Honor. "Why did the killer do
       all of this?"

     Edgeworth:
       Why go to the Eagle River to
       dispose of the murder weapon
       when there are other methods?

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       Too many unanswered questions!

     Judge:
       Your response, Ms. von Karma?

     Judge:
       Waaaaaaaah!

     von Karma:
       Turning to me for help
       over the slightest thing!

     von Karma:
       Why don't you think for
       yourself once in a while?
       ...Your Honor.

     Judge:
       Whaaaaat!?

     Edgeworth:
       (She's as over the top
       as always...)

     von Karma:
       A-Anyway...

     von Karma:
       Whatever the reason, the fact
       remains that the defendant
       could have done this!

     von Karma:
       The murder weapon was disposed
       of in the river! Another point
       to me, Miles Edgeworth!

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

Edgeworth:
  (Another mystery to feed
  the fire...)

Edgeworth:
  ("Was there any reason to
  go and throw away the murder
  weapon"...?)

Edgeworth:
  (Luckily, there is surely
  a problem with this
  testimony.)

Edgeworth:
  (Now all I have to do is
  start poking holes in this
  flawed account...)

*Present Tracks Photo* at (5)

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  I admit this photograph proves
  something.

Edgeworth:
  It proves that the snowmobile
  was used on the night of
  the murder.

von Karma:
  You've finally accepted the
  inevitable, it seems...
  Miles Edgeworth.

Edgeworth:
  However...

Edgeworth:
  If what the witness says is
  true, why is there only
  one set of tracks?

von Karma:
  What do you mean...?

Edgeworth:
  Iris left Hazakura Temple,
  threw the weapon into the
  river, and then returned.

Edgeworth:
  If this was the case, then
  naturally there should be two
  sets of tracks in the snow!

Edgeworth:
  Those from heading out to
  the bridge, and those from
  coming back.

Bikini:
  ...

Bikini:
  Ah...!
  You're right!

von Karma:
  Hmph...

von Karma:
  You are forgetting one
  thing, Miles Edgeworth.

Edgeworth:
  ...?

von Karma:
  On the night of the murder,
  it was snowing.

von Karma:
  The tracks leading to the
  bridge were erased by the
  snowfall.

von Karma:
  This removes your precious
  contradiction, now doesn't
  it!

Judge:
  I see! While she was at the
  river, the snow stopped...

Judge:
  ...leaving just the return
  tracks in the snow.

von Karma:
  What do you have to say now,
  Miles Edgeworth!

Edgeworth:
  (Is there a flaw in her
  theory...?)

Edgeworth:
  (This idea that the snowfall
  covered one set of tracks...?)

Edgeworth:
  The tracks to the river

  What a nice theory.

Edgeworth:

  That is impossible.

von Karma:

von Karma:
  Would you care to explain...

von Karma:
  ...why there is a rude index

Edgeworth:
  ...No need. The evidence will
  do all of the talking for me.

Judge:
  On the night of the murder
  the killer went to, and
  returned from, Dusky Bridge...

Judge:
  ...in order to dispose of the
  murder weapon. The outgoing

* Edgeworth:
*   Witness! Please tell us again
*   what time it was when you
*   witnessed the crime.
*
* Bikini:
*   Like I said!
*   It was around 11.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...Of course, this means that
*   the weapon was thrown away
*   after that time, correct?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   On that note... Please take a
*   look at this data.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   It is the weather report for
*   Eagle Mountain on the night
*   of the murder.
*
* Judge:
*   The... weather report...?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Snow started to fall at

*

*   ...!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Therefore! When the Sister
*   witnessed the crime at
*   11 PM...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...the snow had already

*
* Edgeworth:

Edgeworth:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Edgeworth:
  Ultimately, it all comes down
  to one point.

Edgeworth:
  That being...

Edgeworth:
  Whether or not it was snowing
  in that courtyard when the
  victim was stabbed...

von Karma:
  That's right.
  But proving that is...

Edgeworth:
  Incredibly easy.

von Karma:
  ...!

Edgeworth:
  If we want to know whether
  it was snowing or not, this
  photo will tell us everything.

Edgeworth:
  Of course, I am referring to
  the photo of the crime scene.

Edgeworth:
  As you can see... everything
  is covered with snow.

Edgeworth:
  ...With just one exception.

von Karma:
  And that is...?

Edgeworth:
  The victim herself,
  Ms. Elise Deauxnim!

Edgeworth:
  Why is there no snow on top
  of her...?

Edgeworth:
  The answer is simple!

Edgeworth:
  It had stopped snowing when
  she was killed, that's why!

von Karma:
  Gnnngh!

Edgeworth:
  In other words!

Edgeworth:
  If the killer really did go
  to the Eagle River to dispose
  of the murder weapon...

Edgeworth:
  ...then in this photograph,
  there should be two sets of
  tracks!

von Karma:
  Aaaaah!

Judge:
  Order! Order!
  Just what are you...

Judge:
  Gyahaah!

von Karma:
  J-Just what are you
  suggesting, Miles Edgeworth!?

Edgeworth:
  (To be honest... I am not
  entirely sure myself. But...)

Edgeworth:
  This is simply what all of
  the facts point to.

Edgeworth:
  That night... someone used the
  snowmobile to leave Hazakura
  Temple.

Edgeworth:
  From the tracks left, it can
  be understood that they were
  heading for Dusky Bridge.

Edgeworth:
  At that time... it was still
  snowing.

von Karma:
  Of course it was. Because
  those tracks were gone.

Edgeworth:
  Then when this person
  returned to Hazakura Temple...

Edgeworth:
  ...the snow had stopped. Thus,
  the return tracks remained.

Judge:
  Hmmmmm...

Bikini:
  Can I say something?

Bikini:
  This all sounds a bit fishy
  to me...

von Karma:
  ...What does, Sister?

Bikini:
  There is only one key for the
  snowmobile.

Edgeworth:
  ...!

von Karma:
  Furthermore, on the night
  in question, we know that
  the defendant had it!

von Karma:
  The key was found in her
  room after the murder!

Bikini:
  ...Which can only mean,
  that night...

Bikini:
  Iris used the snowmobile to
  go to the Inner Temple...

Edgeworth:
  (But... Iris said that she
  never went there...)

Edgeworth:
  (I should probably press
  on this point some more when
  I get the chance...)

Bikini:
  The snowmobile can't cross
  the suspension bridge...

Bikini:
  So, she must have left it on
  the Hazakura side of the
  bridge and crossed on foot.

Judge:
  ...That sounds right.

Bikini:
  But... What's odd is, when I
  left Iris and returned to
  Hazakura Temple...

Bikini:
  I didn't see anything near
  Dusky Bridge.

von Karma:
  Y-You must have just failed
  to see it, Sister.

Bikini:
  Maybe... But when I made it
  back to Hazakura Temple...

Bikini:
  ...it was there, by the Main
  Gate... The snowmobile,
  I mean.

Bikini:
  I know what I saw.
  It was covered in snow, too...

Edgeworth:
  B-But that... isn't possible!

Judge:
  Order! Order!
  Order in the court!
  ...What does this all mean?

von Karma:
  ...Nngh...

Edgeworth:
  So then what was the
  snowmobile used for...?

Edgeworth:
  It wasn't taken by the
  defendant when she went to
  the Inner Temple.

Edgeworth:
  If it had been, then the
  witness couldn't possibly
  have seen it by the gate.

Edgeworth:
  Furthermore... it wasn't used
  by the killer to dispose of
  the murder weapon.

Edgeworth:
  If that was the case, there
  should be two sets of tracks
  in this photo.

Edgeworth:
  All we know is this...

Edgeworth:
  After it stopped snowing...
  someone used the snowmobile
  to return to Hazakura Temple!

Judge:
  Hmmmmmm...

Edgeworth:
  (I never thought a simple
  snowmobile could cause so
  much trouble...)

Judge:
  ...

Judge:
  I think we've arrived at
  this point due to the
  witness...

Bikini:
  Yes, yes.
  I've nothing more to add.

Bikini:
  I've told you everything,
  everything that I know.

Judge:
  Well then... That still
  leaves us with the same
  problem.

Judge:
  If only there was someone...
  A witness who could testify to
  having seen the snowmobile!

Edgeworth:
  (A witness, huh...)

Judge:
  Was there no one out, walking
  perhaps, near Dusky Bridge
  on that night?

Bikini:
  ...
  I don't think that's likely.

Bikini:
  It was cold enough to freeze
  your ears off.

Bikini:
  Only an idiot would go out
  wandering in that.

Bikini:
  ...Unless they had something
  really important to do.

Judge:
  Hmmmm...
  That's a shame.

Edgeworth:
  (Hold on...)

Edgeworth:
  (Something is coming to me...)

Edgeworth:
  (An idiot may well have
  gone wandering out on
  that sub-arctic night!)

Edgeworth:
  ...Your Honor!

Edgeworth:
  I actually have an idea...
  There may be one individual
  able to help us.

Judge:
  R-Really!?

von Karma:
  ...You know of someone who
  might have seen the snowmobile
  on the night of the murder...?

Edgeworth:
  I don't know for sure if he
  saw it or not...

Edgeworth:
  But there are two things
  about him that do come to
  mind.

Judge:
  Which are...?

Edgeworth:
  First... that he saw
  "something incredible" on the
  night of the murder.

von Karma:
  ...And the second being?

Edgeworth:
  This individual that I am
  thinking of went wandering
  outside on that cold night...

Edgeworth:
  In other words, he is our
  kind of idiot.

  idiot you're talking aboot!?

*Present Larry Butz profile*

Edgeworth:

  This guy must be a product of
  "Jean-Luc de Laduc's Guide To
  Obnoxious French Painting"...

Edgeworth:
  This is Larry Butz... The
  student of the victim,
  Elise Deauxnim.

Judge:
  Her student...?
  Interesting.

Judge:
  Why was he wandering on the
  night of the murder?

Edgeworth:
  T-That's...

Edgeworth:
  (I could tell them all about
  his designs for Iris...)

Edgeworth:
  (But it may cost us his
  credibility as a witness...
  Before I even call him.)

Edgeworth:
  He is, after all, an artist.

Edgeworth:
  He was, perhaps, searching
  for something in the snowy
  scenery that would move him.

Edgeworth:
  ...Although I cannot
  guarantee that this is the
  reason.

von Karma:
  And so...? This unfortunate,
  unreliable-looking man...

von Karma:
  What exactly was it that he
  saw?

Edgeworth:
  I intend to extract that
  from him, right here in
  this courtroom.

Judge:
  Summon this youth as a
  witness immediately!

von Karma:
  ...

von Karma:
  I have no choice, do I?

Edgeworth:
  I believe he is in the gallery
  for this trial.

Edgeworth:
  It will not take long to
  summon him.

February 9, 11:15 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 1

Iris:
  Excuse me... Mr. Edgeworth?
  I'm not really sure what to
  say...

Edgeworth:
  Iris.
  We only have 20 minutes.

Edgeworth:
  There are two things which I
  need to ask you before we
  reconvene.

Iris:
  ...Alright. I'll help
  you any way I can.

Edgeworth:
  First, about that night.
  You really didn't go to the
  Inner Temple, correct?

Edgeworth:
  The last witness claims to
  have met and talked with you
  in the Training Hall.

Edgeworth:
  Either you or Sister Bikini...

Edgeworth:
  ...is lying.

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  Mr. Edgeworth.
  It is just as I said
  yesterday.

Iris:
  Until the incident occurred...
  I was in my own room, in
  Hazakura Temple.

Edgeworth:
  ...Very well.
  The second thing, then.

Edgeworth:
  That night, the temple
  snowmobile was used in between
  the time Sister Bikini...

Edgeworth:
  ...returned to the Main Hall
  and when she bore witness to
  the murder.

Edgeworth:
  Sometime between 10:30 and
  11 PM that night.

Edgeworth:
  Were you the one who used
  the snowmobile?

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  There is only one key for
  the snowmobile.

Iris:
  The only person who could
  have used it... was me.

Edgeworth:
  So it was you...!

Edgeworth:
  But... why?

Edgeworth:
  ...What made you go out to
  Dusky Bridge?

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  I'm sorry, Mr. Edgeworth.

*5 PSYCHE-LOCKS*

Edgeworth:
  Iris...

Iris:
  I can't... tell you about
  that... yet.

Edgeworth:
  "Yet"...?

Iris:
  Not until her safety is
  confirmed...

Edgeworth:
  Her?

Iris:
  The safety of the acolyte...

Edgeworth:
  (The "acolyte", huh...)

Edgeworth:
  (She's must be talking about
  Maya...)

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  Iris. Look me in the eye
  and tell me the truth.

Edgeworth:
  Did you kill Elise Deauxnim?

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  No matter who or what may
  come...

Iris:
  I could never take a life.

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  (As I thought... no
  Psycholock...)

Edgeworth:
  ...Very well.

Edgeworth:
  It is my job to get to the
  truth.

Edgeworth:
  You'll discover this for
  yourself soon enough.

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

February 9, 11:36 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 7

Judge:
  ...Court will now reconvene.

Judge:
  Ms. von Karma. Where is the
  witness...?

von Karma:
  During the break, a man was
  detained for suspicious
  behavior in the gallery.

Edgeworth:
  Suspicious behavior...?

von Karma:
  He was sketching something...
  Very intensely.

Judge:
  Dare I ask what the witness
  was sketching when he was
  detained?

von Karma:
  He drew a terrifying woman,
  armed with a demonic face
  and a vicious whip.

Judge:
  ...

Judge:
  I can only presume that
  his intention was to
  capture you--

Judge:
  ...Aaaah!

von Karma:
  Anyway, it's time to drag
  this pathetic excuse for an
  artist before the court!

von Karma:
  Laurice Deauxnim!
  I hope you're ready...
  Get in here!

Edgeworth:
  (It would seem that whip
  is going to see plenty more
  use today...)

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

Butz:
  Ouch!

von Karma:
  ...Your sketch is in
  contempt of this court!

Butz:
  H-Hey!
  I was just artistically
  rendering...

Butz:
  Ou-Ouch!

von Karma:
  You tried to run away from the
  bailiff who was trying to hand
  you your subpoena, correct?

Butz:
  L-Look! I'm nothing but
  a fledgling artist, training
  out in the mountains!

Butz:
  I'm only down here in the
  city because I ran out of
  green paint.

Butz:
  Well, to use the technical
  term for the color,
  "viridian".

Edgeworth:
  ...Larry...

Edgeworth:
  This isn't an art store,
  now is it...?

Butz:
  I know!
  I graduated junior high, OK!?

Butz:
  Look. Art is all about working
  in the fields, isn't it?

Judge:
  Working in the fields...?

Edgeworth:
  I presume he wanted to say
  "field work"... I hope.

Butz:
  Th-That's it!
  Thanks, buddy!

Edgeworth:
  (It's kind of sad that I was
  able to understand his mangled
  train wreck of a sentence...)

Butz:
  I just happened to stop in
  here and found a wonderful
  new model!

von Karma:
  ...

Butz:
  So see!? I've got nothing
  to do with this trial!
  At all!

Butz:
  I expect all of your faces to
  be red when you realize
  this mistake! Bright red!

Butz:
  Or, to use the technical
  term, "crimson lake".

Butz:
  ...Ou-Ou-Ouch!

Butz:
  Ou-Ou-Ou-Ouch!
  Ouch!

Judge:
  Ou-Ou-Ou-Ouch!
  Ouch! Ou-Ouch!

von Karma:
  Stop your pathetic blabbing
  and testify like a man!

Judge:
  Refrain from whipping me,
  Ms. von Karma! Cross-whipping
  is as bad as cross-checking.

Judge:
  Witness! That was all your
  fault! Testify, now!

Butz:
  Waaaah...
  This is almost too much for
  me...!

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- What I Saw --

(1)
Butz:
  I was at that lodge out in
  the mountains, looking up at
  the stars that night.

(2)
Butz:
  I walked to the bridge a
  number of times, but...

(3)
Butz:
  I didn't see a s-snowmobile!

(4)
Butz:
  I didn't meet anyone at the
  bridge that night!

(5)
Butz:
  The girl I was waiting for
  didn't show up... My teacher
  died on me...

(6)
Butz:
  I'm all alone now.
  Aren't I, Edgeyyyyy...!?

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

Judge:
  Witness! Please refrain from
  talking directly to the
  lawyers during your testimony!

Butz:
  I-I'm just a nobody! Nothing
  but a small, worthless man,
  aren't I!?

Butz:
  And why wasn't I asked
  for my name and occupation...
  or anything else...!?

Judge:
  ...

Judge:
  Mr. Edgeworth. This man seems
  to have quite a severe
  inferiority complex.

Edgeworth:
  ...He's recently been the
  cause of numerous incidents.

Edgeworth:
  I think he's finally realized
  for himself...

Edgeworth:
  ...just how much of a nuisance
  he has been to other people!

Butz:
  Yeah, that's right! I'm
  behind everything, every
  case!

Butz:
  Watch out, OK!
  Just touching me will make
  you eternally unhappy!

Judge:
  ...Well then, let us proceed
  with the cross-examination.
  With no touching, thank you.

Judge:
  We can delve into other
  details at a later time.

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- What I Saw --

(1)
Butz:
  I was at that lodge out in
  the mountains, looking up at
  the stars that night.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       ...

     Judge:
       What ever is the matter,
       Mr. Edgeworth?

     Edgeworth:
       This one single statement is
       so full of contradictions...

     Edgeworth:
       For a moment there, I thought
       I was going to collapse.

     Judge:
       Hmm...

     von Karma:
       So, witness?

     von Karma:
       Any idea as to where these
       contradictions in your
       testimony lie?

     von Karma:
       Depending on your answer...
       I may let my whip have its
       way.

     Butz:
       OK, give me a minute...

     Butz:
       Well, it was snowing that
       night so I couldn't possibly
       have seen the stars.

     Butz:
       That run-down shack is hardly
       a "lodge", is it...?

     Butz:
       And even if the stars could be
       seen, it isn't like I was
       there to look at them, right?

     Edgeworth:
       ...

     von Karma:
       See? You can do it if you try.

     Butz:
       Heh heh heh...

     Butz:
       Ou-Ou-Ou-Ouch!

     von Karma:
       ...There is only one issue
       here.

     von Karma:
       What you saw at Dusky Bridge.

(2)
Butz:
  I walked to the bridge a
  number of times, but...

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       "A number of times"...?
       How many?

     Butz:
       Maybe... five times?
       I went once every twenty
       minutes.

     Edgeworth:
       Which means...

     Edgeworth:
       ...you spent almost two hours
       at Heavenly Hall that night?

     Butz:
       You bet! Real love is about
       waiting with your heart in
       your hands!

     Judge:
       Love, you say...?

     Edgeworth:
       It was this man's intention
       to summon the defendant to
       the small shack.

     Edgeworth:
       ...Using this blackmail
       letter.

     Judge:
       B-Blackmail...!?

     Butz:
       No, no! That was simply a
       product of overflowing love...

     Butz:
       A-Agh!

     von Karma:
       You huffy, puffy, loosey-
       goosey excuse for a whimpering
       whining wuss of a witness!

     Judge:
       So... what did you see?
       I hope for your sake you
       saw a snowmobile...

     Judge:
       You huffy, puffy, loosey-
       goosey excuse for a whimpering
       whining wuss of a witness, eh!

     Butz:
       Um... well...
       You see...

     Edgeworth:
       (Being called those names
       doesn't seem to bother him
       at all...)

(3)
Butz:
  I didn't see a s-snowmobile!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       ...Larry!
       You really didn't see it?

     Butz:
       H-H-Hey!
       No need to hit your desk!
       I can hear you!

     Butz:
       ...I didn't see it!
       I didn't see a s-s-snowmobile!

     Edgeworth:
       ...

     Edgeworth:
       Larry. Say "snowmobile" for
       me, please?

     Butz:
       S-S-S-Snowmobile.

     Edgeworth:
       If you truly have nothing to
       hide...

     Edgeworth:
       ...then why are you
       stammering like you just
       flew over a cuckoo's nest!?

     Butz:
       Sh-Shut up! W-W-What is this!?
       I don't know! Don't ask me!

     Edgeworth:
       (It seems that I'll need to
       start from a more obvious
       contradiction.)

     Edgeworth:
       (I'm going to strike the blow
       that will finally get him to
       spill the beans!)

(4)
Butz:
  I didn't meet anyone at the
  bridge that night!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       You didn't meet anyone?

     Butz:
       That's right.
       Because I've got nothing to
       do with this!

     Butz:
       And I'm just here to buy some
       viridian paint, OK!?

     Butz:
       Come on, I expect to see those
       crimson lake faces! Now!

     Judge:
       ...

     Judge:
       It would appear that simply
       pressing him isn't going to be
       enough, Mr. Edgeworth.

     Edgeworth:
       ...Indeed.

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

Edgeworth:
  (It seems that he's going to
  claim to have nothing to
  do with this to the end.)

Edgeworth:
  (I don't want this guy to
  cost us any more time...)

Edgeworth:
  (I need to slice through his
  obvious contradictions and
  keep things moving along...)

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*Present Phoenix Wright profile*

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Larry Butz...

Edgeworth:
  I can understand why you
  might want to throw your old
  life away.

Edgeworth:
  You're pretty pathetic, and
  you cause all sorts of
  trouble...

Butz:
  I'm sorry...!

Edgeworth:
  But... Having realized just
  how much of a nuisance you
  have been...

Edgeworth:
  ...that could be considered
  a step in the right direction.

Butz:
  Edgey! Are you...
  trying to console me?

Judge:
  It certainly doesn't sound
  that way to me.

Edgeworth:
  However...

Edgeworth:
  I cannot forgive you for
  simply turning away from the
  incidents you create!

Butz:
  Waaah...
  You're totally pinning this
  on me...

Edgeworth:
  ...Now then. Let us talk
  about the night of the murder.

Edgeworth:
  Sister Bikini, after seeing
  the murder take place, asked
  Phoenix Wright to report it.

Edgeworth:
  Thus, he headed for the
  public phone by the bridge...

Edgeworth:
  There, he happened across
  a certain nefarious
  individual!

Edgeworth:
  You, Larry Butz!

Butz:
  ...

Butz:
  That's right.
  Me, in the flesh.

Judge:
  Hmm...
  Listen carefully, witness.

Judge:
  It doesn't matter if you
  change your name.

Judge:
  So long as you remain pretty
  pathetic, you will continue to
  cause these incidents!

Judge:
  That reality will not change!

Butz:
  B-But...!
  What do you want me to do,
  then!?

Edgeworth:
  Larry. What you need to
  change is your inner self.

Edgeworth:
  "What you saw that night"...

Edgeworth:
  Testify truthfully!
  That is all you can do
  for now.

Butz:
  ...

Butz:
  Edgey... I...

Butz:
  I think...
  I've finally woken up!

Butz:
  ...

Butz:
  Well. I guess I could still
  be sleeping...

Butz:
  But anyway!
  I'll do it! I'll testify!

Butz:
  ...

Butz:
  Well. I'm not sure this'll
  go especially well...

Judge:
  I'll ask again, then,
  witness.

Judge:
  What did you see on the
  night of the murder?

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- What I Saw, Pt. 2 --

(1)
Butz:
  I went to the shack at around
  9, so it would have been
  about 10:30 PM...

(2)
Butz:
  I was lying under my bedding
  when a white flash almost
  blinded me!

(3)
Butz:
  I looked out the window...
  and Dusky Bridge was on fire!

(4)
Butz:
  There was still some thunder,
  but I went right away to check
  it out.

(5)
Butz:
  That's when I ran into Nick.

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

Judge:
  Hmmmm...

Judge:
  You certainly saw quite a
  lot, didn't you?

von Karma:
  So... what happened to the
  bridge after it caught on
  fire?

Butz:
  It was like me after a
  three day stint chasing a
  girl...

Butz:
  It totally burnt out.
  Like, almost totally gone.

Butz:
  ...I mean, trying to cross the
  burning remains was what
  caused Nick to fall.

von Karma:
  W-What did you say!?

Edgeworth:
  Oh, don't worry... nothing
  life-threatening. He just
  caught a cold.

von Karma:
  As always, hard to know
  if he should be called lucky
  or unlucky...

Judge:
  Now, Mr. Edgeworth!
  Please commence your
  cross-examination.

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- What I Saw, Pt. 2 --

(1)
Butz:
  I went to the shack at around
  9, so it would have been
  about 10:30 PM...

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       What did you do out there
       in the cold for an hour
       and a half?

     Butz:
       Well, if you really must
       know... I was busy being
       excited. I guess.

     Judge:
       Hmmmmm...
       "Excited"?
       Dare I even ask...?

     Butz:
       I set the meeting time as
       10:00 PM, right?

     Butz:
       But I couldn't wait.
       And I thought she might come
       early, too.

     Edgeworth:
       ...Well, it appears she didn't
       come at all, in the end.

     von Karma:
       Because they never arranged
       to meet in the first place,
       did they?

     Butz:
       Shut up!
       Don't go picking my fond
       memories apart!

     Butz:
       Anyway, I was getting a little
       worried.

     Butz:
       I thought maybe Iris had
       lost her way.

     Butz:
       So every twenty minutes or
       so, I went out to the bridge.

     Butz:
       But I didn't see anything
       particularly suspicious...

     Butz:
       I didn't have anything else
       to do, so I went back to
       the shack to wait for her.

(2)
Butz:
  I was lying under my bedding
  when a white flash almost
  blinded me!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       This "light" was, of course...

     Butz:
       Lightning. Like...
       KERPOW!

     Butz:
       Like a slap from Naomi,
       honestly!
       A big bada-boom!

     Butz:
       Hagaaaaah!

     von Karma:
       ...Or a little like that?

     Butz:
       Waaah!
       That's more like a punch from
       Miranda!

     Judge:
       Witness, did you actually see
       the lightning hit the bridge?

     Butz:
       Well, I was a bit startled by
       the flash of light, so...

(3)
Butz:
  I looked out the window...
  and Dusky Bridge was on fire!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       Seeing that, what did you do?

     Butz:
       What do you think!?
       I was burning up as well!
       From the fire in my heart!

     von Karma:
       And that's why you went
       to take a look at the bridge?

     Butz:
       Well. To be honest...

     Butz:
       It was freezing cold, so at
       first I thought, "Forget it.
       I'm not leaving my covers."

     Butz:
       But it had pretty much
       stopped snowing... So, I
       dunno, I changed my mind.

     Judge:
       Hmmmmmm.

     Judge:
       I'm not sure I care for the
       "forget it" attitude you had
       at first, witness.

(4)
Butz:
  There was still some thunder,
  but I went right away to check
  it out.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       You said "right away"...
       But exactly how long after
       the strike was that?

     Butz:
       Hmm...

     Butz:
       The lightning fell, and then
       the bridge caught on fire...
       Maybe around five minutes?

     Butz:
       I mean. I suddenly thought,
       "Gotta go check this out!"

     von Karma:
       How far is this small shack
       you were in from the bridge?

     Butz:
       Hold on... Well, it had pretty
       much stopped snowing...

     Butz:
       I guess about a five-minute
       walk?

     Edgeworth:
       And how did Dusky Bridge look
       when you got there?

     Butz:
       Like I had recovered a piece
       of my childhood.

     Butz:
       I mean, not even the bonfires
       kids make during school
       camping trips can compare!

     Edgeworth:
       (...Well? Should I press him
       for a little more info?)

     *** Not right now. *************************

     * Butz:

     *

     *
     * Butz:
     *   H-Huh?
     *   Yeah, OK.
     *   A reason... My reason...
     *
     * Butz:
     *   It isn't that I didn't try

     *** Why did you go to the bridge? **********

     * Edgeworth:
     *   So you suddenly thought to

     *
     * Edgeworth:
     *   Does this mean that you

     *   of doing so?
     *
     * Butz:
     *   W-Well... Yeah, I guess it

     *
     * Butz:
     *   It was really cold...
     *   I didn't really want to go
     *   out there.
     *
     * Edgeworth:
     *   If that's the case...
     *
     * Edgeworth:

Butz:
  That's when I ran into Nick.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       How did Phoenix Wright look
       when you met him?

     Butz:
       Hmm... He looked like a
       beaten up mule. He was
       dead tired.

     Butz:
       I mean, he had run all the
       way from Hazakura Temple.

     Butz:
       He simply stood, staring at
       me, breathing hard for a
       moment.

     von Karma:
       How far is it to Hazakura
       Temple from the bridge?

     Butz:
       On his legs... a 15 minute
       run, I'd say.

     Judge:
       ...And that's when the murder
       was reported?

     Butz:
       That's right! And then he
       took a fall from the bridge!

(5b)
Butz:
  I arrived at the bridge, and
  Nick showed up less than a
  minute later.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       You claim to have arrived at
       the bridge at the same time
       as Wright?

     Butz:
       Y-Yeah!

     Butz:
       I thought, "I'd better tell
       someone about this."

     Butz:
       But then Nick came up yelling
       about murder!

     Butz:
       It totally made me forget
       about the bridge.

     Butz:
       The fire was pretty much out
       by then, anyway.

     Edgeworth:
       (What's this feeling...?
       I suddenly have a terrible
       case of unease...!)

     von Karma:
       It was after contacting the
       police that Phoenix Wright
       fell from the bridge, correct?

     Butz:
       Yeah. That's pretty much it.
       More or less.

(5c)
Butz:
  I thought I'd never get
  another chance to see
  something so big burning!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!* 

     Edgeworth:
       ...So you decided to go and
       see what was happening?

     Butz:
       That's right! We're talking
       about a massive suspension
       bridge burning to high heaven!

     Butz:
       That's not something you see
       every day. A real spec...
       specule...

     Butz:
       ...
       Like, really special?

     Edgeworth:
       (Can we really trust a
       witness who is unable to
       pronounce "spectacle"?)

     Judge:
       Life seems to love hitting
       this poor witness below
       the belt...

     Butz:
       Well, my motto is to "hit life
       back as hard as I can."

     Butz:
       A-Agah!

     von Karma:
       ...I'll give you a few hits
       too, if you'd like.
       With my whip.

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

Edgeworth:
  (...He told me about the
  burning bridge yesterday.)

Edgeworth:
  (But there's still something
  that doesn't quite fit...)

Edgeworth:
  (It looks like...)

Edgeworth:
  (...despite his change of
  heart, Larry still isn't
  telling us the whole truth.)

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*Present Weather Data* at (5b)

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Your very existence being a
  contradiction, I'm not sure if
  you can grasp this or not...

Butz:
  What the hey, Edgey!?
  You make me sound like
  some sort of alien!

Edgeworth:
  But your testimony is
  conclusively contradictory.

Edgeworth:
  The problem here...
  is time.

Butz:
  I've never been the best
  timekeeper, you know.

Butz:
  "Three minutes after Billy
  leaves on foot, you follow
  him on your bicycle."

Butz:
  "How long does it take for
  you to catch up with him?"
  Terrible at those.

Edgeworth:
  ...This is much more simple.

Edgeworth:
  You saw the lightning strike
  Dusky Bridge...

Edgeworth:
  ...and immediately went to see
  what had happened.
  ...Is this correct?

Butz:
  Yeah... Well, I wasted about
  five minutes first, but more
  or less.

Edgeworth:
  ...I have the weather data
  from the night of the murder
  here.

Edgeworth:
  According to this, the
  lightning fell at 10:45 PM.

Edgeworth:
  You say it takes less than
  five minutes from the shack to
  Dusky Bridge.

Edgeworth:
  Meaning you probably got there
  at around 11 PM.

Butz:
  ...That all sounds about
  right, I guess.

Butz:
  And then Nick showed up and
  did his falling act.

Edgeworth:
  That is impossible.

von Karma:
  ...What do you mean?

Edgeworth:
  11 PM is when the murder
  occurred in Hazakura Temple.

Edgeworth:
  Thus... Wright was still
  there, in the courtyard.

Edgeworth:
  There is no way that Larry
  could have encountered him at
  Dusky Bridge at that time!

von Karma:
  ...!

Butz:
  Ah! Excuse me! I-I have an
  objection!

Judge:
  You do?

Butz:
  Edgey! How many times do
  I have to say this!?

Butz:
  I'm not Larry!
  I'm Laurice Deauxnim!

Butz:
  Gyaaah!

von Karma:
  ...It has not been proven that
  the murder occurred at 11 PM.

von Karma:
  The Sister only said, "around
  11".

von Karma:
  ...In which case! It could
  have been earlier than that!

Edgeworth:
  ...Watch your footing there,
  Ms. Franziska von Karma.
  The slope ahead is slippery!

Edgeworth:
  For there is still no way that
  Wright could have been at
  Dusky Bridge at 11 PM!

von Karma:
  And why not!?

Edgeworth:
  It is clearly written here
  in the weather data report.

Edgeworth:
  It took around 30 minutes for
  the bridge to burn out.

Edgeworth:
  Therefore! The bridge must
  have been burning until at
  least 11:15 PM!

Judge:
  Which means... what, exactly?

Edgeworth:
  Wright did not see the
  bridge as it was burning
  that night.

Edgeworth:
  He did not arrive there until
  after the flames had died
  down!

Edgeworth:
  ...Larry!

Edgeworth:
  You arrived at the bridge
  at 11 PM.

Edgeworth:
  Wright did not make it there
  until at least 11:15...

Edgeworth:
  Are you still trying to hide
  something from us!?

Edgeworth:
  What happened during these
  missing 15 minutes!?

Butz:
  Urk...

Butz:
  I... I feel like I just
  woke up...

Butz:
  I guess I was still
  sleeping after all!
  Ha ha ha! Pinch me!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!
  Ordaaaaaaaaagh!

von Karma:
  ...So there was a missing 15
  minutes prior to meeting
  Phoenix Wright.

von Karma:
  I hardly see that as much of
  a problem!

Butz:
  Yeah! Not much of a problem at
  all!

Edgeworth:
  Really...?

Edgeworth:
  The bridge is burning before
  your eyes, and there is a
  phone right next to it.

Edgeworth:
  Why, then, did you not report
  the accident?

Judge:
  Did you simply... watch the
  bridge burn?

Edgeworth:
  That is the problem here...

Edgeworth:
  Even after the bridge burnt
  out, he was still there!

Edgeworth:
  He simply stood there and
  didn't report anything.

von Karma:
  Th-That's what it sounds
  like...

Edgeworth:
  This might be Larry we are
  talking about, but even he is
  incapable of being so stupid.

Edgeworth:
  There has to be a reason
  for his inaction!

Butz:
  ...

Butz:
  Edgey...

Butz:
  I think it's about time
  I got serious with you,
  dude.

Edgeworth:
  ...Just as I thought, you've
  been playing with us all this
  time.

Butz:
  Listen...
  I'm...

Butz:
  I'm going to tell you
  everything! Are you sure
  you want to hear it all!?

Edgeworth:
  Y-Yes...

Butz:
  I may reeeeally say it this
  time! Everything!

Butz:
  Kahaah!

von Karma:
  ...Then say it!

Judge:
  Very well...
  I have a terribly bad feeling
  aboot this; however...

Judge:
  ...let's have the witness
  finally give us the whole
  truth.

Judge:
  Now... for this 15 minute
  gap, what where you doing,
  witness!?

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Missing 15 Minutes --

(1)
Butz:
  I'm a Deauxnim. I'm an artist!
  What do you think I was doing?

(2)
Butz:
  Sketching! In front of the
  bridge! I was whipped up into
  a frenzy of art!

(3)
Butz:
  The shock and awe that I
  was feeling... I transferred
  it all directly onto the page!

(4)
Butz:
  ...Before I realized it, the
  flames had gone out and then
  he came running up.

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

Judge:
  Hmmmmm...

Judge:
  I suppose artists can be
  strange folk...

Butz:
  That's right! I'm willing to
  sacrifice everything in order
  to draw the perfect sketch!

Edgeworth:
  (...Including the truth, from
  the sound of it!)

Judge:
  Mr. Edgeworth.
  Has this removed the last of
  your doubts?

Edgeworth:
  Not at all, Your Honor.
  One very large doubt still
  remains.

Judge:
  And what would that be?

Edgeworth:
  This is a surprisingly
  believable story, especially
  considering the source...

Edgeworth:
  So why did he think he
  needed to hide it from us
  until now?

Edgeworth:
  I intend to drag the reason
  out of him!

Butz:
  Hah ha ha! You'll regret this,
  Edgey!

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Missing 15 Minutes --

(1)
Butz:
  I'm a Deauxnim. I'm an artist!
  What do you think I was doing?

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       Tell us, Larry...

     Butz:
       My name is Laurice!
       Get it right!

     Butz:
       Mistakes like that are what
       keep you from being popular
       with the ladies like I am!

     Judge:
       ...

     Judge:
       Just who exactly are you!?

     Butz:
       I'm Laurice Deauxnim!
       Apprentice extraordinaire!

     Edgeworth:
       That's what he calls himself,
       in any case.

     Judge:
       ...Then you are... an artist?

     Butz:
       Of course!
       I'm an artist, the real thing!

     Edgeworth:
       Yet again, that's what he
       calls himself.

     von Karma:
       ...Names mean nothing.

     von Karma:
       There is only one issue
       I care to discuss.
       What were you doing?

     Edgeworth:
       (That is a very big issue,
       indeed.)

(2)
Butz:
  Sketching! In front of the
  bridge! I was whipped up into
  a frenzy of art!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       S-Sketching!?
       The burning bridge?

     Butz:
       The burning bridge and
       everything that came with it!

     Edgeworth:
       ...

     Edgeworth:
       What?
       "Came with it"...?

     Butz:
       You want to hear this from
       my lips, do you, Edgey!?

     Butz:
       Y-You'll regret this!
       That sketch of mine is...

     Butz:
       Gaaah!

     von Karma:
       ...Enough.

     von Karma:
       Just take that ridiculous
       sketch of yours out
       already, witness!

     Butz:
       ...

     Butz:
       W-W-W-What are you talking
       about? I don't know what you
       mean!

     Judge:
       That does indeed appear to be
       the fastest solution.

     Judge:
       ...I'll leave it to you,
       Mr. Edgeworth.

     Edgeworth:
       (What should I do...?)

     Edgeworth:
       (I've got a terrible feeling
       that the instant this sketch
       is revealed...)

     Edgeworth:
       (...the entire world may be
       changed by what is depicted
       there...!)

     *** Leave it alone *************************

     * Edgeworth:
     *   ...I cannot recommend looking
     *   at the sketch.
     *

     *   His "works of art" are a
     *   force of nature best measured
     *   on the Richter scale.

Butz:
  Sketching! In front of the
  bridge! I was whipped up into
  a frenzy of art!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       ...Could the reason you were
       so excited be...?

     Butz:
       What do you think!?

     Butz:
       My girlfriend was flying
       through the sky!

     Butz:
       Almost 30 feet above the
       bridge!

     Butz:
       I felt like I might start
       flying myself.

     Edgeworth:
       (If only you'd be so
       kind as to fly out of
       all of our lives...!)

     Butz:
       Anyway! I completely lost
       myself when I was drawing
       this scene!

(2c)
Butz:
  I saw Iris flying!
  Her white hood fluttering!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       Just where did you see this
       sight from!?

     Butz:
       Hey! No need to shout...

     Butz:
       When I was lying in bed in
       that run-down shack...

     Butz:
       The crack of the lightning
       bolt made me realize that
       the bridge was burning.

     Butz:
       I just watched it for a
       while from there, thinking
       how nicely it was burning!

     Butz:
       Then after about five
       minutes, I saw it.

     von Karma:
       The defendant "flying"...?

     Butz:
       That's right!

     Butz:
       That's when I decided to go
       to the bridge!

     Judge:
       ...I see. That all makes
       sense.

     Judge:
       Aside from the sketch
       itself...

     Edgeworth:
       (Yes... This sketch doesn't
       make any sense...)

     Edgeworth:
       (I just need to convince
       the artist that his work is
       ludicrous.)

(3)
Butz:
  The shock and awe that I
  was feeling... I transferred
  it all directly onto the page!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       The burning bridge moved you
       that much, did it?

     Edgeworth:
       ...I find that hard to
       believe.

     Butz:
       You moron, Edgey!
       You don't understand me
       at all!

     Butz:
       If I see an abandoned cat,
       I find myself passing by it
       with tears in my eyes!

     Butz:
       I am a man overflowing with
       irresponsible kindness!

     Butz:
       And I use my irresponsible
       kindness to fill the pages
       of my notebook!

     von Karma:
       An artist, using a notebook...
       It's so pathetic, it makes me
       want to cry myself.

     von Karma:
       I command you to go buy at
       least a proper sketch pad!

     Butz:
       W-W-What has that got to do
       with anything!?

     Judge:
       I'm not sure if I care for an
       artist using a notebook for
       sketching. Proceed, witness.

(4)
Butz:
  ...Before I realized it, the
  flames had gone out and then
  he came running up.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       You forgot the passage of
       time to that extent, did you?

     Butz:
       Well... Once I get caught up
       in something, I tend to forget
       everything else...

     Edgeworth:
       (That's true... He's always
       been that way.)

     Edgeworth:
       (I guess he's not lying about
       that, at least.)

     von Karma:
       Phoenix Wright appeared
       on the scene after 11:15...

     von Karma:
       If he was drawing until then,
       that dispels all doubts.

     Judge:
       Aside from doubts of his
       humanity, eh...

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

Edgeworth:
  (There is a big clue waiting
  for me in this cross-
  examination...)

Edgeworth:
  (This testimony does nothing
  less than mock the court...)

Edgeworth:
  (But I am sure that there is
  a vital kernel of truth hidden
  in it somewhere!)

*Present Iris's Hood* at (2c)

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  Larry. What did you really
  see that night...?

Edgeworth:
  Not that I particularly care.

Butz:
  In your position, that's
  just being irresponsible!

Butz:
  I... I drew exactly what I
  saw!

Butz:
  I'll give you a whole
  dollar that it's the truth!

Edgeworth:
  If that is truly the case...

Edgeworth:
  Then there is one thing that
  we can say for certain.

Judge:
  What might that be...?

Edgeworth:
  That the person who flew over
  the bridge...

Edgeworth:
  ...could not have been the
  defendant, Iris!

Butz:
  W-W-What!?
  What do you mean?
  I don't understand!?

Butz:
  Uwaaagh!

von Karma:
  A foolhardy folly of a foolish
  statement by an equally
  foolishly foolhardy fool.

von Karma:
  How, exactly, can you make
  this claim?

Edgeworth:
  ...Tell us, Larry.
  According to this picture...

Edgeworth:
  ...the individual whom you say
  you saw was wearing a hood.
  Correct?

Butz:
  Of course she was!

Butz:
  That run-down shack is quite a
  way from the bridge...

Butz:
  The hood is what told me
  that this floating angel
  was my Iris!

Butz:
  The hood is my darling Iris!
  And Iris is my darling hood!

Butz:
  Waaah!

von Karma:
  It seems there are bigger
  fools in this world than the
  one at the defense's bench.

Edgeworth:
  ...Larry, there's something
  you need to be made aware of.

Edgeworth:
  On the night of the murder...
  Iris wasn't wearing her hood.

Edgeworth:
  She had given it to Wright
  as a gift!

Edgeworth:
  Are you going to change your
  story now? Perhaps suggest it
  was Wright who took flight!?

Butz:
  W-What are you talking about!?

Edgeworth:
  ...I think you understand
  what I mean just fine.

Butz:
  Why...?

Butz:
  Why did Nick have Iris's
  hood!?

Edgeworth:
  Eh...?

Butz:
  Edgey!
  What's going on with
  Iris and Nick!?

Butz:
  Why you, Niiiiiick!
  You dooooooog!

Judge:
  I do believe...

Judge:
  ...that this unbelievably
  mysterious sketch...

Judge:
  ...is destined to disappear,
  discredited and discarded.
  Straight into the garbage.

Butz:
  ...Hah...

Butz:
  Hah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
  Hah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Butz:
  Hagaaah!

von Karma:
  ...What is it now, witness?

Butz:
  It feels like... I've been
  waiting 25 years for
  this very day to come!

Butz:
  Edgey!
  Today is the day I get to
  completely stupefy you!

Edgeworth:
  W-What...!?

Judge:
  What is the meaning of your
  outburst, witness!?

Butz:
  ...I hate to have to do this,
  but I have some definitive
  evidence.

Edgeworth:
  "Definitive"...?

von Karma:
  "Evidence"...?

Butz:
  Iris did indeed come flying
  over the burning bridge!

Butz:
  And I, Laurice Deauxnim...

Butz:
  ...shall prove it!

Judge:
  I didn't expect to ask
  this again...

Judge:
  But we shall be needing
  your testimony once again.

Judge:
  Tell us anything you know
  concerning the defendant as
  depicted in this sketch...

Judge:
  And show us your evidence that
  this nightmare was actually a
  reality!

Butz:
  ...OK. I hope you're ready,
  Edgey!

Butz:
  Because I'm going to feed
  you a whopping serving of
  pain!

Edgeworth:
  (...You've been serving us a
  whopping serving of pain this
  whole time. Trust me.)

Witness Testimony
-- Proof That Iris Flew! --

(1)
Butz:
  When I reached Dusky Bridge
  she was already gone...

(2)
Butz:
  I was so worried!
  So I frantically searched all
  over for her!

(3)
Butz:
  That led to me finding
  a beautiful crystal sphere,
  half-buried in the snow!

(4)
Butz:
  I'm sure that Iris was simply
  wearing a spare hood.

(5)
Butz:
  After all, no one else could
  have lost a crystal sphere
  that night.

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

Judge:
  A c-crystal sphere...!?

Butz:
  This one.
  Pretty, isn't it?
  But finders keepers!

von Karma:
  That sphere...
  Where did you find it?


Butz:
  Let me see... Around here,
  somewhere? Looks about right.

Edgeworth:
  And it was half-buried in
  the snow...?

Butz:
  It had pretty much stopped
  snowing by then...

Butz:
  But there was still some
  falling as I walked to
  the bridge.

Judge:
  Hmmmm...
  The court accepts this
  crystal sphere!

Butz:
  ...That's mine, OK!?
  I want it back afterward!

Judge:
  There's something on it,
  isn't there...

von Karma:
  ...?

Judge:
  Oh my...
  It's a blood stain!

Edgeworth:
  (What!? A blood stain...!?)

*Crystal Sphere added to the
Court Record.*

Butz:
  You ready, Edgey!?

Butz:
  By tomorrow morning,
  you'll be calling me
  "Master Larry"!

Butz:
  Yeah, I like the sound of
  that! No one's going to push
  me around anymore!

Edgeworth:
  (...Didn't you want to be
  called "Laurice Deauxnim"
  only a few minutes ago!?)

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Proof That Iris Flew! --

(1)
Butz:
  When I reached Dusky Bridge
  she was already gone...

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       ...So, you went to the
       burning bridge?

     Butz:
       That's right! To meet Iris!

     Butz:
       She actually flew to get to
       me! The least I could do
       was meet her halfway!

     Judge:
       But... the defendant was not
       at the bridge when you got
       there, you say?

     Butz:
       I guess she went back to
       Hazakura Temple.

     Butz:
       She's a girl, after all.
       She must have wanted to look
       her best.

     Edgeworth:
       (It must be lovely to live in
       the fantasyland of Larry's
       mind...)

     Edgeworth:
       (Actually, it's so depressing
       that I can't even work up the
       energy to point...)

     Judge:
       So... what did you do next?

(2)
Butz:
  I was so worried!
  So I frantically searched all
  over for her!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       So you searched all over
       for her?

     Butz:
       She was flying pretty high,
       you know.

     Butz:
       I thought maybe she slipped on
       her landing and got hurt. Hey!
       It was more than possible!

     Butz:
       Also, when I headed out to
       the shack the first time, I
       was snacking on a banana.

     Butz:
       I was pretty sure I threw the
       peel away somewhere around
       there, so, you know...

     Edgeworth:
       ...
       (Can one guy really be
       this stupid?)

     Edgeworth:
       So, did you find any signs
       of her so-called "landing"?

     Butz:
       Hmm...
       I don't really remember.

     Butz:
       I kept on falling over myself,
       and kinda lost it for a while
       there.

     Judge:
       You... fell over yourself?

     Butz:
       Yeah. The snow was deep, and
       there was even a banana peel
       out there!

     Edgeworth:
       ...
       (Yup. There's stupid, and
       then there's Larry Butz.)

     Judge:
       The short of it is that you
       didn't find any signs of her
       "landing", correct?

     Judge:
       Then what happened next?

(3)
Butz:
  That led to me finding
  a beautiful crystal sphere,
  half-buried in the snow!

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       "Half-buried"...?

     Butz:
       It was sitting in the snow,
       with a little gathered on
       top of it.

     Butz:
       It was very hard to spot,
       actually. I mean, it was dark
       out, too.

     Judge:
       I'm impressed... You did well
       to find it!

     Butz:
       No matter what you may think
       when you look at me, I'm a
       pro. A genius security guard.

     Butz:
       I used a penlight I "borrowed"
       from my company to help in
       my search...

     Butz:
       And it sparkled really
       brightly, as if it was saying,
       "Here I am!" to me.

     Edgeworth:
       It does indeed look very
       much like the crystal sphere
       on Iris's hood...

     Edgeworth:
       But need I remind you that
       she was not wearing her hood
       that night?

(4)
Butz:
  I'm sure that Iris was simply
  wearing a spare hood.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       Each nun is assigned their
       own hood! And they are
       assigned only one!

     Butz:
       I don't know anything about
       that, OK! And Iris is special,
       alright dude!?

     Butz:
       Even if she did steal a
       spare hood...
       I'll forgive her!

     Edgeworth:
       (This is getting us nowhere...
       Our destination for the day,
       it seems.)

     Judge:
       However... this crystal
       sphere was found near the
       bridge. That is a fact.

     Judge:
       If it didn't come from a
       hood, where could it have
       come from?

     Edgeworth:
       (That is the question I aim
       to answer.)

(5)
Butz:
  After all, no one else could
  have lost a crystal sphere
  that night.

     Edgeworth:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Edgeworth:
       Let me confirm this
       one last time, Larry.

     Edgeworth:
       The reasons you thought that
       this was "Iris"...

     Edgeworth:
       ...are the hood and this
       crystal sphere, correct?

     Butz:
       That's right! My gut is
       never wrong!

     Butz:
       I met that old Bikini the
       next morning...

     Butz:
       And her crystal sphere was
       still there, safe and sound!

     Judge:
       Indeed...

     Judge:
       She was wearing it in this
       very room, earlier today.

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

Edgeworth:
  (This case isn't going to
  end without a fight...)

Edgeworth:
  (Exposing the obvious
  contradictions in this
  testimony will be easy...)

Edgeworth:
  (But I fear that all that
  awaits us are further
  mysteries!)

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  ...Larry.

Edgeworth:
  That night...
  There was someone.

Edgeworth:
  Someone who lost a crystal
  sphere.

Butz:
  Th-There was...?

Butz:
  Who!?
  Who was this stupid idiot!?

Edgeworth:
  Ms. Elise Deauxnim!
  The mentor to a stupid
  idiot!

von Karma:
  The victim...!?

Edgeworth:
  I have a photo of her here.

Edgeworth:
  And on the end of her staff,
  you can see a familiar looking
  crystal sphere.

Butz:
  H-Hey...!

Butz:
  That's my photograph!
  ...Give it back!

Butz:
  Ou-Ou-Ouuuuch!

von Karma:
  ...A crystal sphere like that
  is quite easy to find.

von Karma:
  I have one just like it
  on my broach.

Edgeworth:
  (They look nothing alike!)

Edgeworth:
  In any case... please take a
  look at this.

Edgeworth:
  This is the victim's staff,
  found at the scene of the
  crime!

Judge:
  ...Aaaaah!
  The crystal sphere...
  It's gone!

Butz:
  W-W-W-W...

Butz:
  What!? What!? What!? What!?

Butz:
  WHAAAAAAAAAAT!?

Judge:
  J-Just what does this mean!?

Edgeworth:
  If anyone jumped... or flew
  across the bridge that
  night...

Edgeworth:
  ...it certainly was not Iris!
  After all...

Edgeworth:
  She was not wearing her hood!
  More importantly...

Edgeworth:
  ...the crystal sphere found at
  the "landing site" was not
  hers either!

Judge:
  T-That means...
  The one who flew...

Judge:
  ...and dropped the sphere...
  was the victim, Ms. Elise
  Deauxnim!?

von Karma:
  *OBJECTION!*

von Karma:
  A fool alongside another fool,
  on a fool's errand to reach a
  foolish conclusion!

von Karma:
  First of all, this "sketch",
  which I prefer to call a
  scribble, is ridiculous!

von Karma:
  People cannot fly!
  ...Thus, it is rejected!

Butz:
  Y-You can't do that!
  I saw it! With my own two--

Butz:
  Eyeeeeeeiiiz!

von Karma:
  ...And this crystal sphere.

von Karma:
  This is nothing more than
  a red herring!

Edgeworth:
  You honestly believe that...?

von Karma:
  Give it some thought, and I'm
  sure you'll realize it as
  well, Miles Edgeworth!

von Karma:
  Elise Deauxnim was in her
  room on the night of the
  murder.

von Karma:
  There was no reason for her to
  go to Dusky Bridge!

von Karma:
  Therefore, this sphere cannot
  be related to this case.
  That is all.

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!*

Edgeworth:
  ...Ms. Franziska von Karma.

Edgeworth:
  The only people who will
  accept that explanation...
  are scatterbrains and clowns!

Butz:
  Why are you pointing at me!?

Edgeworth:
  The victim's crystal sphere
  was found, near the bridge, on
  the night of her murder.

Edgeworth:
  Yet you expect us to believe
  this has nothing to do with
  the case!?

von Karma:
  *OBJECTION!*

von Karma:
  That crystal sphere...

von Karma:
  It was probably thrown away
  at the bridge after the
  murder.

Judge:
  After the murder?

von Karma:
  There is blood on the crystal
  sphere, isn't there?

von Karma:
  This naturally suggests that
  it was thrown away after
  the murder took place.

von Karma:
  The killer placed it there
  to throw the investigation
  off the scent...

von Karma:
  The same reason that he drew
  that ridiculous sketch!

Butz:
  ...
  ......

Butz:
  What...?

Butz:
  You mean... I'm the killer!?

Butz:
  No waaaagh!

von Karma:
  Enough joking...

von Karma:
  Just when did this crystal
  sphere appear near the foot
  of the bridge?

von Karma:
  Unless this can be proven in
  some way, I refuse to believe
  this is related to the case!

Edgeworth:
  (She makes a valid point...)

Edgeworth:
  (There is no evidence that
  Elise Deauxnim left Hazakura
  Temple that night.)

Edgeworth:
  (...However, if somehow
  this crystal sphere...)

Edgeworth:
  (...can be proven to have been
  dropped before the victim
  was killed...)

Edgeworth:
  (...then this case is going
  to transform into something
  else entirely!)

Judge:
  Your response, Mr. Edgeworth?

Judge:
  I want your final opinion on
  the disposition of this
  crystal sphere!

Judge:
  If it is not related to the
  case, then this witness who
  you called...

Judge:
  ...will have been nothing more
  than a monumental waste of
  time!

von Karma:
  Prepare yourself for some
  very appropriate punishment,
  Miles Edgeworth.

Edgeworth:
  (Can I prove it...?)

Edgeworth:
  (Can I prove that the crystal
  sphere was dropped before
  the murder took place...?)

*** Yes, I can. ****************************

Edgeworth:
  ...Your Honor.
  Allow me to prove something
  to you.

Edgeworth:
  I will prove that this crystal
  sphere is a vital link to
  solving this case!

Judge:
  You will do what!?

von Karma:
  That look in your eyes...

von Karma:
  You remind me of
  Phoenix Wright when he is
  cornered.

Edgeworth:
  That should come as no
  surprise.

Edgeworth:
  (Because right now, I am
  Phoenix Wright, and I am
  indeed cornered...!)

Judge:
  I order you to present your
  evidence, Mr. Edgeworth!

Judge:
  Evidence that proves that the
  crystal sphere was indeed
  dropped before the murder!

*Present Crime Photo*

Edgeworth:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Edgeworth:
  This crystal sphere...
  It was half-buried in the
  snow, correct?

Butz:
  That's right. If it hadn't
  stopped snowing then it would
  have been game over. 

Butz:
 ...The snow would have totally
  covered it!

Edgeworth:
  ...That's all I needed to hear
  from you, Larry.

Edgeworth:
  ...Your testimony makes one
  thing quite clear.

Judge:
  W-What...?

Edgeworth:
  When the crystal sphere was
  dropped, it was snowing, even
  if it was ever so slightly...

von Karma:
  Snowing...?

Edgeworth:
  On the other hand, let us
  look at the scene of the
  murder.

Edgeworth:
  As proven earlier today...
  there is no snow on the
  victim's body.

Judge:
  Ah...!

Edgeworth:
  ...Therefore!

Edgeworth:
  The crystal sphere must have
  been dropped before the
  murder!

von Karma:
  Wha...

von Karma:
  Whaaaaat!?

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!

Edgeworth:
  On the night of the murder
  the victim did indeed go to
  Dusky Bridge!

Edgeworth:
  And there, something occurred
  that caused this crystal
  sphere to come loose!

Judge:
  What... What could that have
  been!?

Edgeworth:
  This sphere...
  There is some blood on it,
  isn't there?

von Karma:
  ...!

Edgeworth:
  Allow me to raise a certain
  possibility at this junction!

Edgeworth:
  The real crime scene was
  near the foot of Dusky Bridge!

von Karma:
  *OBJECTION!* 

von Karma:
  The murder didn't take
  place in the Hazakura Temple
  courtyard...!?

von Karma:
  Only a fool would suggest
  such a foolish piece of
  absolute foolishness!

Edgeworth:
  Just who is the fool?
  And which part is so foolish,
  Ms. von Karma?

von Karma:
  Have you been paying any
  attention this whole time,
  Miles Edgeworth!?

von Karma:
  The Sister saw everything!

von Karma:
  She saw the victim being
  killed by the defendant in the
  Hazakura Temple courtyard!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!* 

Edgeworth:
  ...That's not exactly true,
  now is it?

Edgeworth:
  To put it more precisely,
  what she saw was...

Edgeworth:
  ...the murder weapon being
  removed from the victim's
  body.

von Karma:
  Th-That's the same thing!

Edgeworth:
  ...No, it isn't!

von Karma:
  !

Edgeworth:
  ...You said it yourself.

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

von Karma:
  Very little blood is actually
  lost...

von Karma:
  ...at the moment of a
  blade's insertion.

von Karma:
  If you want to talk about
  when the most blood would
  be lost from a body...

von Karma:
  ...that would be when the
  blade is removed.

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

Edgeworth:
  If that statement is the
  truth...

Edgeworth:
  ...then Dusky Bridge could
  very easily be the scene of
  the murder.

Edgeworth:
  The murder weapon was not
  removed! Thus, there was no
  bleeding!

von Karma:
  *OBJECTION!*

von Karma:
  You are forgetting one vital
  thing, Miles Edgeworth!

von Karma:
  Elise Deauxnim's body was
  found in Hazakura Temple!

von Karma:
  On foot it takes 15 minutes
  to travel from Dusky Bridge
  to Hazakura Temple.

von Karma:
  You mean to suggest someone
  carried the body all that
  way!?

Edgeworth:
  (I've made it this far...
  The only place to take this
  is to the end!)

Edgeworth:
  (I just need to prove
  the possibility it happened
  as I presume...!)

Judge:
  Now, if the defense is ready,
  the court would like to
  have an explanation.

Judge:
  Please show us the method by
  which the victim's body was
  carried to Hazakura Temple!

*Present Tracks Photo*

Edgeworth:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Edgeworth:
  On that snowy night...

Edgeworth:
  ...there is one way that a
  body could have been moved.

Edgeworth:
  The snowmobile.

von Karma:
  Ah...!

Edgeworth:
  As we know... the snowmobile
  was used that night.

Edgeworth:
  It was explained as having
  been used to dispose of the
  murder weapon...

Edgeworth:
  But it could also have been
  used to carry a body!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Order!
  Gyaaaaah!

von Karma:
  This... This is completely
  unacceptable, Miles Edgeworth!

von Karma:
  You've dug yourself into
  your own grave!

Edgeworth:
  What do you mean!?

von Karma:
  The only one who could have
  used the snowmobile was the
  defendant.

von Karma:
  She's the one who moved the
  body! Doesn't that put the
  final nail in your coffin...?

Edgeworth:
  Heh...

Edgeworth:
  You're too late...
  Franziska von Karma.

Edgeworth:
  And in fact, the defense has
  proven something else
  entirely.

Edgeworth:
  We have shown that this
  case requires further
  investigation!

von Karma:
  W-What!?

Edgeworth:
  ...Where was the victim,
  Elise Deauxnim really killed?

Edgeworth:
  ...If her body was moved,
  whatever for?

Edgeworth:
  And finally...

Edgeworth:
  Just what does this image
  mean?

von Karma:
  Do you even need to think
  about that!?

von Karma:
  Such a creature could never
  see the truth, let alone
  describe it!

Edgeworth:
  *OBJECTION!* 

Edgeworth:
  ...This witness certainly
  sits on one of the lowest
  possible branches of humanity.

Edgeworth:
  However! He would never utter
  a lie that could hurt a girl
  with whom he is enamored!

Edgeworth:
  He drew this, so it is
  something that actually
  happened.

Edgeworth:
  The defense stands firm
  on this point.

Butz:
  Ed-Edgey!
  Thank you...!

Judge:
  ...That settles it, then.

Judge:
  I cannot give a verdict under
  these circumstances.

von Karma:
  Grrr... Grrrrrr!

Edgeworth:
  (Wright...)

Edgeworth:
  (I seem to have fulfilled my
  part in this...)

Edgeworth:
  It is just as I thought.

Edgeworth:
  Franziska von Karma...
  You make a wonderful
  partner.

von Karma:
  Excuse me...?

Edgeworth:
  There was one reason, and one
  alone, for me being here.

Edgeworth:
  To expose the darkness lurking
  in this case, and then pass it
  on to Wright!

Butz:
  R-Really? That's what this
  was all about?

Butz:
  You could have just told me
  that from the very beginning!

Butz:
  Then I wouldn't have had
  Franzy whipping me all...

Butz:
  Daaaaaayyyowch!

von Karma:
  Miles Edgeworth...

von Karma:
  I don't care about what you
  were here to do!

von Karma:
  This was my chance to finally
  grind you under my heel!

Edgeworth:
  A shame that your chance seems
  to have slipped by you.

Butz:
  What a shame,
  Franzzzyyyyyyyy!

von Karma:
  ...This is all your fault!

von Karma:
  Such a terrible witness...
  You are an affront to all
  the legal system stands for!

Butz:
  Ouuuouuuouooooouuuuuou
  ouuooououooouuuuouoouuch!

von Karma:
  I demand satisfaction!

Judge:
  ...I cannot believe that the
  witness's testimony relates to
  an actual event.

Judge:
  However, there has to be
  some sort of answer for
  the questions it raises.

Judge:
  Have his words here today
  been the truth or lies?

Judge:
  Next time we gather in
  this courtroom...

Judge:
  ...those are the matters that
  shall be addressed!

Judge:
  I am counting on thorough
  investigations by both the
  defense and the prosecution.

Edgeworth:
  (And with this...)

Edgeworth:
  (The rest is up to you...
  Wright...)

von Karma:
  ...

Judge:
  Court is now adjourned!


                                             To be continued.

Phoenix:
  I'm still up at this hour,
  reading through the trial
  record of a certain case.

Phoenix:
  It's the first case my mentor,
  Mia, had ever handled in a
  court of law.

Phoenix:
  The horrifying truth that I
  refuse to accept is holding me
  hostage here within its pages.

Phoenix:
  Dahlia Hawthorne...

Phoenix:
  What I have read, I don't want

Phoenix:
  What is written here...
  This wasn't the Dahlia I knew.

Phoenix:
  After falling into the Eagle
  River, I was somehow
  miraculously saved...

Phoenix:
  But I ended up catching a
  cold that seemed to knock me
  around the world and back.

Phoenix:
  I feel dizzy, my ears are
  ringing, my throat burns,
  and my head is on fire.

Phoenix:
  But I will recover!
  I have to recover by this

Phoenix:
  I have to meet with the most
  ill-tempered witness
  imaginable.

Phoenix:
  But I know that he will be
  able to help me... somehow!

February 9, 2:43 PM
Dusky Bridge

Edgeworth:
  Wright... Are you sure you're
  well enough to be doing this?

Edgeworth:
  You still look a little green
  in the face.

Gumshoe:
  Or maybe "viridian", in
  artist-speak.

Phoenix:
  Actually, my fever has gone
  down quite a bit.

Gumshoe:
  How's your temperature now?

Phoenix:
  Only 102.2 degrees...
  Nothing to worry about.

Phoenix:
  *cough*
  *cough* *cough* *cough*

Phoenix:
  Anyway...
  I read today's trial record.

Phoenix:
  You weren't bad, Edgeworth...
  Pretty impressive despite
  the circumstances.

Edgeworth:
  We're not in the clear yet.

Edgeworth:
  The main point of contention
  tomorrow is going to be the
  murder weapon.

Phoenix:
  Yeah...

Edgeworth:
  In the end, the Shichishito
  did not deliver the deadly
  blow.

Edgeworth:
  Which means there must be
  another sword hiding out there
  that we don't know about...

Phoenix:
  (Another sword, huh...)

Gumshoe:
  Don't you worry
  about anything, pal!

Gumshoe:
  I'll dig up the murder weapon
  myself, or I'll eat my coat!

Phoenix:
  ...Thanks again, Edgeworth.
  I'll handle things from here.

Edgeworth:
  Heh...
  That is probably for the best.

Edgeworth:
  Actually, I was thinking about
  paying the old precinct a
  little visit.

Edgeworth:
  There's something
  I want to look into...

Phoenix:
  And that is...?

Edgeworth:
  Our client's background,
  naturally.

Gumshoe:
  You mean Iris, sir...?

Edgeworth:
  I have the feeling that we've
  met before.

Phoenix:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  All I want is confirmation,
  one way or the other.

Edgeworth:
  And since I probably won't be
  getting that from you...

Phoenix:
  I'm sorry, Edgeworth...

Edgeworth:
  I bid you adieu, Wright.
  ...Take care.

Gumshoe:
  Guess I should get moving,
  too.

Phoenix:
  Why?
  Do you need to be somewhere?

Gumshoe:
  Yeah, I've gotta get to work
  on this bridge, pal.

Gumshoe:
  I'm rigging something up so
  we can get across to the
  other side.

Phoenix:
  (Ack! That's right! Maya is
  still stuck over at the Inner
  Temple...)

Gumshoe:
  But don't you worry, pal!

Gumshoe:
  As soon as it's all set,
  you'll be the first to know.

Phoenix:
  Th-Thank you, Gumshoe!
  *cough* *cough*

Phoenix:
  *cough*
  *cough* *cough*

Gumshoe:
  No problem, pal.
  Just try not to give me that
  cough of yours, OK?

Gumshoe:
  Alright, I'm off!

Phoenix:
  (Hang in there, Maya.
  We'll get you out. I promise.)

Phoenix:
  (But in the meantime... I've
  got to continue collecting
  evidence!)

+++ Cliff on the other side ++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It looks like it's about
+   20 yards to that cliff
+   over there.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But I can't see the Inner
+   Temple from here.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I really hope Maya's OK...
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Wooden sign on the left side +++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There's a narrow path going
+   off in a different direction
+   than that of the Main Hall.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Looks like someone's taken the
+   effort to write "To Heavenly
+   Hall" on the signpost.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The bridge +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That thing looks like it's
+   ready to collapse... At least
+   more than it did before.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   According to Bikini, Eagle
+   Mountain is very prone to
+   earthquakes.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Which reminds me...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   If my memory serves me
+   correctly, Edgeworth isn't
+   exactly a fan of earthquakes.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Stone boulder ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Now it really is more of a
+   "Dusty Bridge" than a
+   "Dusky Bridge".
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That kidnapping incident
+   happened here 11 years ago,
+   so maybe it's cursed, too.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Red public phone +++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Hazakura Temple doesn't have
+   a single private phone line...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...and there aren't any houses
+   in the area, so I guess Bikini
+   is the only one who uses this.

-------

+++ River ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   This is the famous Eagle
+   River. I got to try out its
+   rough rapids the other night.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   They say it has a really
+   strong current.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   And they weren't kidding.
+   It's both powerful and
+   fast-flowing.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I was dead lucky...
+   I mean lucky not to be
+   dead!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Bridge +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That's Dusky Bridge up there.
+   It's amazing how clearly you
+   can see it from so far away.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Larry supposedly saw
+   everything through the
+   shack's window.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Not much light gets down here,
+   so it must be pitch black at
+   night...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But this area was probably
+   illuminated that night because
+   of the burning bridge above.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Stairs +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   These steps lead up to the
+   foot of Dusky Bridge.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Coming down is a cinch, but
+   going back up doesn't look
+   like a walk in the park.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I'm starting to understand why
+   rivers always want to flow
+   downstream, not up.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Flags ornament +++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That stuff is really ruining
+   the beautiful atmosphere
+   around here.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's so inappropriate.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Like Sister Bikini in a
+   bikini! *shudder* ...I've
+   gotta think of the kittens...
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The shack ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Look at this graffiti,
+   scrawled right on the
+   front of the shack.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   At least he managed to get
+   a pretty good likeness.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   When I really think about it,
+   I guess art kind of suits him.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I mean, his very existence is
+   an art... of sorts.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Shack's roof +++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   The snow is really piled up on
+   the straw roof.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's otherworldly... Like
+   something out of a fairy tale.
+   ...Well, the roof part anyway.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   The sign says,
+   "Heavenly Hall".
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess it's pretty fitting.
+   If you spent a night in this
+   little freezing shack...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...you'd probably find
+   yourself at the pearly
+   gates by morning.

Butz:
  I'm talking about the heroine
  here! The heroine in my book.
  It'll make you famous.

Butz:
  Aaagh!

von Karma:

von Karma:
  A fool's fool fools fools
  who foolishly accept the

von Karma:
  Wouldn't you agree...
  Phoenix Wright?

Phoenix:
  Eh...?

Phoenix:
  Wait a second...
  I-I know you...
  You're... Um...

Phoenix:
  Oww!

von Karma:
  Your reflexes and mind
  need to shape up!

Phoenix:
  (My brain's frying like a
  sunny-side up and you want
  to grill me over a name!?)

Butz:
  Franzy! You can't do that!

Butz:
  Even as we speak, Nick's
  on the brink of death!
  ...Or so I'm told.

von Karma:
  "Whip a dead horse!"
  Isn't that one of your
  American sayings?

Phoenix:
  No, it's not!
  And I'm not on the brink of
  anything.

Butz:
  Come on, Nick.
  Tell her, would you?

Butz:
  She must model for my picture
  book, "Franzy's Whip Lash
  Splash: Simple & Magnificent"!

Butz:
  Gaaah!

von Karma:
  Before you ask me to model,
  learn to give at least
  semi-coherent testimony.

Phoenix:
  And before that, you'll have
  to learn how to live a
  semi-coherent life, Larry.

Butz:
  ...

Butz:
  I don't care what anyone says!
  I'm telling the truth!
  I saw what I saw!

Butz:
  She flew, I'm telling you!
  Whooosh! Just like that dude
  with the red underwear!

Butz:
  Don't think I'm gonna forgive
  you guys when you come
  crawling back to apologize!

Phoenix:
  (*sigh*
  Off he goes...)

von Karma:
  Phoenix Wright, it's been a
  year since we last met. A
  pleasure to see you again.

+ Phoenix:
+   This is one impressive gate.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Compared to the grandeur of

+   Estate, it's but a pet door.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It looks really idyllic with
+   all that snow on it, don't
+   you think?
+
+ von Karma:
+   All that snow? Don't make me
+   laugh. This is but a light
+   dusting where I come from.

+++ The Main Hall ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   You can see the Main Hall
+   from here.
+
+ von Karma:
+   I wonder how the head nun
+   is holding up...?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Oh, wow. Is that an inkling of
+   human kindness I sense?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Oww!
+
+ von Karma:
+   Do you enjoy causing other
+   people pain with that sharp
+   tongue of yours?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (It's nothing compared to the
+   pain you cause with that
+   leathery whip of yours...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Bell tower +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's a quaint, little bell
+   tower.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I never would've thought
+   that something this horrible
+   was about to happen...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...when Iris rang the
+   lights out bell that night.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Snowmobile +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I'd love to know what that
+   thing was used for on the
+   night of the crime.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Hah! Still thinking small I
+   see, Phoenix Wright.
+   Or perhaps, not at all.
+
+ von Karma:
+   That's why you will never
+   defeat me!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Sorry to burst your bubble,
+   but I don't recall ever losing
+   to you.
+
+ von Karma:
+   It's time for us to settle
+   this once and for all with
+   one final showdown!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Looks like she mentally
+   blocked out my victories
+   over her from her memory...)

MOVE TO: "Main Hall"

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

February 9
Hazakura Temple
Main Hall

? ? ?:
  Hmmmaaaaaaaaaaaaah...

Phoenix:
  (...That was one long sigh!)

Phoenix:
  Umm... Sister Bikini?

Bikini:
  My my my! I didn't know you
  were here! How are you doing?
  Wa ha. Wa ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Bikini:
  Hmmmaaaaaaaaaaaaah...

Phoenix:
  Um, you don't have to pretend
  to be in a good mood for
  my sake...

Bikini:
  I...

Bikini:
  I suppose I've made a terrible
  mess of things, haven't I?

Bikini:
  I let Mystic Elise die, and
  then there's Iris as well...

Phoenix:
  ("Mystic Elise"...?
  Now that I think about it...
  Hmm...)

Bikini:
  There's an acolyte stuck at
  the Inner Temple...

Bikini:
  ...and that poor little girl
  has gone missing, too.

Phoenix:
  That little girl...?

Phoenix:
  Y-You don't mean Pearls...
  do you?

Bikini:
  Yes, I'm afraid I do!

Bikini:
  She hasn't been seen since the
  morning after the incident.

Phoenix:
  Pearls? She's missing!?
  (Why didn't someone tell me
  about this earlier!?)

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Stuff on the floor +++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I've only seen a layout like
+   this when I saw this really
+   old Japanese movie on TV.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Wow! This hibachi brazier
+   really puts out a lot of heat!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Just thinking about how happy
+   we were, sitting here eating
+   pot roast and gravy... *sigh*

TALK (TO BIKINI)
----------------

>>> Iris >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

> Bikini:
>   I must be getting old...

>
> Bikini:
>   You believe me, don't you?
>   I'm not a liar! I would never

>
> Bikini:
>   I know what I saw! I saw Iris

>   Elise's body that night...
>
> Bikini:
>   I'm certain of it!
>   At least, I was until this
>   morning...
>
> Phoenix:
>   (I don't see any Psyche-Locks,

>
> Phoenix:
>   Um... So why are you so

>   a sudden?
>
> Bikini:
>   You know that artist who

>
> --------------------------------------------
>
> Butz:

>   Her white hood fluttering!
>
> Butz:
>   I felt like I might start

>
> --------------------------------------------
>
> Bikini:
>   When I saw that man testify

>   so impossible...
>
> Bikini:
>   ...I started to wonder if I

>   I was on the witness stand.
>
> Phoenix:
>   I wouldn't take that guy
>   too seriously.
>
> Phoenix:
>   He's an artist, but all he

>   and nothing else.
>
> Phoenix:
>   (If both Bikini and Larry are

>
> Phoenix:
>   (...that can only mean one

>
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

>>> Inner Temple >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
>
> Phoenix:
>   On the night of the incident,
>   you met Iris at the Inner
>   Temple. Is that correct?
>
> Bikini:
>   That's right. I'm sure it was

>
> Phoenix:
>   (But Iris claims she was in
>   her room in Hazakura Temple.)
>
> Bikini:
>   I knew I shouldn't have come

>
> Phoenix:
>   But because you did, Maya is

>
> Bikini:
>   Nngh...
>   I am so sorry.
>
> Bikini:
>   The drafts in that place are
>   nothing to shake a stick at.
>   Winter is especially bad.
>
> Phoenix:
>   (I'll bet. The Training Hall
>   looks like it's about to fall
>   down any second.)
>
> Bikini:
>   Eagle Mountain has always
>   been prone to earthquakes,
>   just so you know.
>
> Phoenix:
>   E-Earthquakes...?
>
> Bikini:
>   Yes. I wouldn't be surprised
>   if the next big one levels the
>   Training Hall.
>
> Phoenix:
>   (We've got to get Maya
>   out of there... fast!)
>
> Bikini:
>   But still. There's really no
>   need to worry...
>
> Bikini:
>   That area on the other side
>   of Dusky Bridge is isolated
>   like an island.
>
> Phoenix:
>   It's like an island?
>   How so?
>
> Bikini:
>   Well, the only thing on that
>   side of the bridge is the
>   Inner Temple.
>
> Bikini:
>   No one lives out there, and
>   it's surrounded on all sides
>   by the river or the forest.
>
> Phoenix:
>   I-I see...
>
> Bikini:
>   So a criminal would be
>   trapped should they choose
>   to flee in that direction.
>
> Bikini:
>   And as long as the bridge is
>   out of commission, he or she
>   will have to stay there.
>
> Phoenix:
>   ...
>
> Phoenix:
>   That means Maya could be stuck
>   out there with a murderer and
>   no way to escape either!
>
> Bikini:
>   Oh dear!
>   Yes, I suppose it does!
>
> Phoenix:
>   (Nngh... Please, Gumshoe!

>
> Phoenix:

> Phoenix:

>
> Bikini:
>   ...
>
> Bikini:
>   I'm afraid I don't know her

>
> Phoenix:
>   No, no. I'm wondering why she
>   came to stay in a place like

>
> Phoenix:
>   I mean, she told us herself

>   spiritual training.
>
> Bikini:
>   My my my... You make it sound
>   like this place is some sort
>   of dump, Mr. Wright.
>
> Bikini:
>   Mystic Elise was here to soak

>   Mountain, if you must know.
>
> Phoenix:
>   There. You did it again...
>   Sister Bikini...
>
> Phoenix:
>   I noticed you always refer

>   "Mystic Elise".
>
> Bikini:
>   ...Oh!?
>
> Phoenix:
>   Yes. Now, why is that?
>   After all, she's not here as
>   an acolyte...
>
> Bikini:
>   W-We address all our visitors
>   as "Mystic". It makes their
>   experience feel authentic.
>
> Bikini:
>   A-And anyway...
>   She's older than me. You must
>   respect your elders, you know.
>
> Phoenix:
>   How do you know that?
>   How can you say for sure that

>
> Bikini:
>   ...
>
> *5 PSYCHE-LOCKS*

> Phoenix:
>   (Hmm...)

PRESENT (TO BIKINI)
-------------------

*** "Oh! Cult!" New Year's Issue ***********
*
* Phoenix:
*   Um, about this picture...
*
* Bikini:
*   Oh, that old thing!
*
* Bikini:
*   I always turned those
*   reporter-types away in
*   the past.
*
* Bikini:
*   But Iris was so insistent
*   this time.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Iris?
*
* Bikini:
*   Oh, yes! Iris loves to be the
*   center of attention, you know.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Really? I find that kinda
*   hard to believe...)
*
********************************************

*** Hanging Scroll *************************
*
* Bikini:
*   Huh... Ahh!
*   Well, well, well...
*   Look what you've found!
*
* Bikini:
*   That's the Master of the
*   Kurain Channeling Technique,
*   Mystic Misty Fey!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (So this woman is Maya's
*   mother, huh...)
*
* Bikini:
*   It's been nearly 20 years
*   since Mystic Misty
*   disappeared.
*
* Bikini:
*   Apparently, she intended to
*   pass the torch on to her
*   daughter.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Her daughter? Don't you know
*   who her daughter is?
*
* Bikini:
*   Well, I myself am part
*   of a branch family of
*   the Fey clan.
*
* Bikini:
*   But even I am not privy to
*   that kind of information when
*   it concerns the main family...
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Hmm, Bikini doesn't seem to
*   know Maya's standing within
*   the Fey family...)
*
********************************************

*** Iris's Hood ****************************
*
* Bikini:
*   Well, well, well!
*   That's a Demon-Warding Hood!
*
* Bikini:
*   Acolytes are highly
*   susceptible to possession
*   by evil spirits, you know.
*
* Bikini:
*   That's why we always wear
*   these for protection.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Iris gave this to me on
*   the night of the murder.
*
* Phoenix:
*   But then I went and fell into
*   the river and got this nasty
*   fever...
*
* Phoenix:
*   I thought maybe if I were to
*   wear this hood, it'd make my
*   fever go down faster!
*
* Bikini:
*   ...
*
* Bikini:
*   I don't think so. Colds and
*   spirit power have nothing to
*   do with each other.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Way to crush a man's hope.)
*
********************************************

*** Shichishito ****************************
*
* Bikini:
*   Maybe my eyes were playing
*   tricks on me.
*
* Bikini:
*   I mean, Iris could never do
*   such a wicked thing.
*
* Phoenix:
*   But they proved it in court
*   today, didn't they?
*
* Phoenix:
*   That this sword wasn't the
*   murder weapon.
*
* Bikini:
*   That's what they were saying,
*   yes.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (The problem is, I saw it,
*   too...)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (I'm sure that what I saw was
*   this blade stabbed into
*   Ms. Deauxnim's body.)
*
********************************************

*** Victim's Staff *************************
*
* Bikini:
*   Ah, it's Mystic Elise's staff.
*
* Bikini:
*   Hmm... The crystal sphere
*   really is missing from it.
*
* Phoenix:
*   But the sphere was found near
*   Dusky Bridge, right?
*
* Bikini:
*   Yes. Even though I'm sure
*   Mystic Elise was in Hazakura
*   Temple that entire evening.
*
********************************************

*** Tracks Photo ***************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   About this photograph...
*
* Bikini:
*   Oh, yes. Those are our
*   snowmobile's tracks, alright.
*   I'd know them anywhere!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (But there's only one set...
*   Which means...)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (...the rider went out while
*   it was still snowing, and came
*   back after it had stopped.)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (That's really the only
*   logical explanation,
*   I suppose.)
*
********************************************

*** Larry's Sketch *************************
*
* Bikini:
*   Honestly!
*   It's like the end of the
*   world.
*
* Phoenix:
*   It's not a good thing,
*   that's for sure.
*
* Bikini:
*   To think people have the
*   gall to call this kind of
*   scribbling by the name of art!
*
* Phoenix:
*   Huh?
*
* Bikini:
*   If that's the sort of standard
*   you need for the arts these
*   days, I could be a pop diva!
*
* Phoenix:
*   Um, sure. But what about the
*   contents of the picture? What
*   do you make of that?
*
* Bikini:
*   ...
*
* Bikini:
*   It's definitely the end of
*   the world.
*
********************************************

*** Crystal Sphere *************************
*
* Bikini:
*   This crystal sphere...
*
* Bikini:
*   It's not from a Demon-Warding
*   Hood, but I would guess it
*   serves a similar purpose.
*
* Phoenix:
*   If it's not from a hood, then
*   I guess it really is from
*   Ms. Deauxnim's staff.
*
* Bikini:
*   Look at the blood on it.
*   Oh, poor Mystic Elise...
*
********************************************

*** Maya Fey profile ***********************
*
* Bikini:
*   She's a very important
*   visitor, you know!
*   An honored acolyte!
*
* Phoenix:
*   She is?
*   Do you know her or
*   something?
*
* Bikini:
*   The Fey name is synonymous
*   with the Kurain Channeling
*   Technique.
*
* Bikini:
*   Therefore, she must be a
*   spirit medium of great power
*   indeed.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Looks like Bikini is in
*   the dark.)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (She doesn't seem to know
*   that Maya is the daughter of
*   the Master of Kurain.)
*
********************************************

*** Pearl Fey profile **********************
*
* Bikini:
*   Oh dear. I wonder where on
*   Earth this little girl has
*   wandered off to?
*
* Bikini:
*   She's nowhere near the
*   Main Hall. That's for sure.

* Bikini:

* Bikini:
*   Now Mystic Elise is dead, and
*   an acolyte is trapped inside
*   the Inner Temple...
*
* Bikini:
*   ...and that poor little girl
*   has gone missing, too.
*

*
* Phoenix:

*   For allowing harm to come to

*   Although, the portrait he did

*   (Still...)

MOVE TO: "Courtyard"

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

February 9
Hazakura Temple
Courtyard

Phoenix:
  (This is where Sister Bikini
  witnessed the incident.)

Phoenix:
  (It's hard to imagine she
  was lying on the stand, so...)

Phoenix:
  (...maybe there are some
  clues that have yet to be
  found.)

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Lantern on the left ++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There are a few of these stone
+   lanterns scattered around in
+   this courtyard.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Without the city glare to
+   compete with, I imagine they
+   would seem a lot brighter.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess Sister Bikini must
+   light them now, since Iris
+   can't be here.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The staff on the snow ++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Ms. Deauxnim's staff...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I definitely remember there
+   being a crystal sphere
+   attached to the staff.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess Larry eventually found
+   the sphere near the foot of
+   Dusky Bridge, but...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...what was it doing all the
+   way out there...?
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Ami Fey statue +++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   The Shichishito.
+   It's there in Mystic Ami's
+   right hand.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But it was proven in court
+   today that it wasn't the
+   murder weapon.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Given the design, it must've
+   been used for some pretty
+   gruesome things in the past...
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Stone wall +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   The Main Gate's on the other
+   side of that stone wall.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   The difference in elevation
+   is almost 10 feet. That's how
+   steep this hillside is!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   And that's also the height
+   the body fell from, according
+   to the autopsy.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Is it possible that
+   Ms. Deauxnim was pushed
+   from the top of the wall...?
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Top right corner +++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That building up there is
+   the Main Hall. It was where
+   we were staying.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It sits kind of funny because
+   it was built on a very steep
+   slope.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   If you enter from the Main
+   Gate side, these rooms above
+   me are on the ground floor.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Apparently, Ms. Deauxnim was
+   staying in the corner room.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess that's where she was
+   pushed from that night...
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Ski apparatus ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   They get quite a bit of snow
+   up here on Eagle Mountain.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Around here, skis aren't just
+   for fun. They're tools for
+   getting around.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But the sled... Now that's
+   gotta be for Bikini's own
+   personal entertainment!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MOVE TO: "Main Hall"

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

? ? ?:
  Heeeeeeeeeey!

Bikini:
  Wh-What was that jarring,
  inconsiderately loud yell...?

Gumshoe:
  So this is where you've been!
  Keeping nice and warm, I see!

Phoenix:
  Detective!
  H-Have you finished repair--

Gumshoe:
  The bridge!? Yeah, I did!
  I told you I'd let you know!

Bikini:
  Well well well! Then I'll come
  along with you and...

Gumshoe:
  Sorry, ma'am! No unauthorized
  entry. Access is restricted to
  people involved in the case.

Bikini:
  What was that!?

Bikini:
  I'm involved, aren't I? You
  couldn't get much more
  involved than me!

Gumshoe:
  Well yeah, but that's not what
  I mea--

Gumshoe:
  Aaah!

von Karma:
  It's been a while, Scruffy...

Gumshoe:
  Y-You're...!

Gumshoe:
  Ms. v-v-v-v-v-v-

Gumshoe:
  Von Karmaaaaaaah!

von Karma:
  Sister. Please, leave
  the investigation to me.

Bikini:
  My my my.
  Well, you certainly seem to
  have everything under control!

von Karma:
  I am on your side.
  I won't do anything you
  don't want me to.

Phoenix:
  (...As you work to pin the
  guilt on Iris.)

von Karma:
  What are you daydreaming
  about, Phoenix Wright!?

Phoenix:
  OWW!
  That hurts, you know! 

von Karma:
  Silence!

von Karma:
  I, Franziska von Karma, will
  personally guide you through
  your investigation.

von Karma:
  So you will follow me!

Phoenix:
  (...She's not seriously
  going to follow me around,
  is she...?)

MOVE TO: "Inner Temple Gate"

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

February 9
Inner Temple Gate

Phoenix:
  Things have certainly become
  a lot livelier than before.

von Karma:
  They must have commenced
  with the investigation.

? ? ?:
  Oh!
  ...Mr. Nick!

Phoenix:
  (Th-That voice...)

Phoenix:
  Pearls!

Pearl:
  ...Mr. Nick...
  Mr. Niiick!

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

Phoenix:
  So you were here...
  ever since that night...

Pearl:
  I was so lonely, I thought I
  was going to die!

Pearl:
  When I woke up in the morning
  and saw that Dusky Bridge
  was gone...

Pearl:
  I...
  I realized I was all alone.

Phoenix:
  (She was all alone...?)

von Karma:
  It must have been very trying
  for you, little girl.

Pearl:
  Ah!
  You're...

von Karma:
  I am Franziska von Karma,
  the Prodigy. There's no need
  to worry now that I'm here.

Pearl:
  You're the prosecutor who was
  so mean to Mystic Maya last
  year.

von Karma:
  Well...

Pearl:
  I... I don't like you.
  You're nothing but a little
  girl without your whip!

von Karma:
  ...!

Pearl:
  Mystic Maya didn't do anything
  wrong, but you were so mean!
  I'll never forgive you!

von Karma:
  I...
  I...!

Phoenix:
  (It looks like Pearls's words
  are getting under her skin...)

von Karma:
  ............

Phoenix:
  Yeowwww!
  Why are you whipping me!?
  I didn't even say anything!

von Karma:
  You didn't have to. The
  smile on your lips gave
  you away!

Phoenix:
  A-Anyway...
  Pearls...?

Phoenix:
  Weren't you with Maya?

Pearl:
  Ah!

Pearl:
  ...

Pearl:
  I'm sorry!
  It's... It's all my fault!

Phoenix:
  Huh!? What are you talking
  about, Pearls?

Pearl:
  I...
  I...

Pearl:
  Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
  Mystic Mayaaaaaaa!

Phoenix:
  Hey, wait! Pearls!
  (She just ran off!)

Phoenix:
  Oww!

von Karma:
  That was cruel, Phoenix
  Wright. To make a little girl
  cry like that is inexcusable!

Phoenix:
  (What was that all about?
  Pearls acting like that...
  It's giving me the creeps.)

Phoenix:
  (I guess I'd better take
  another look around since
  I've finally got a chance!)

Phoenix:
  (Especially since something
  about this place seems
  different from two days ago.)

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ The bridge +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   You can see Dusky Bridge from
+   here. It's an unusually long
+   bridge, isn't it?
+
+ von Karma:
+   I would say it's about
+   20 yards.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess the gorge is too wide
+   to cross with a piece of rope
+   or wire, huh?
+
+ von Karma:
+   Therefore, no one has crossed
+   the gorge in either direction
+   since the night of the murder.
+
+ von Karma:
+   A simple, yet sound deduction,
+   wouldn't you say, Phoenix
+   Wright?
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Metal hook +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ von Karma:
+   Phoenix Wright!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   What!? And would you stop
+   calling me by my full name
+   like that?
+
+ von Karma:
+   Was this once a prosperous
+   port?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   A port...?
+
+ von Karma:
+   Yes. That metal hook is a
+   mooring post for boats,
+   you know.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Oh, that. That's an anchor
+   for one of the wires that used
+   to hold up the bridge.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I think the wire that was tied
+   to this one probably snapped
+   when the bridge burned down.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (I mean, there's no way there
+   was ever a port all the way up
+   here...)
+
+ von Karma:
+   Don't get smart with me,
+   Phoenix Wright!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But I didn't say anything!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Buddha statues +++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Look at all the Buddha statues
+   lined up along this path.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Phoenix Wright...
+
+ von Karma:
+   Do you think this is how many
+   siblings the head nun has?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Why don't you ask her the
+   next time you see her?
+
+ von Karma:
+   ...You know what?
+   I think I will.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (And she'll probably slap you
+   for prying into her private
+   affairs.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Incinerator ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (There's a weird smell coming
+   from that incinerator.)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (The door is also open, almost
+   like it's begging me to look
+   inside...)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Well, well. Let's see what
+   stunning clue is concealed
+   in here, shall we?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Huh? It's empty!
+
+ von Karma:
+   How naïve of you,
+   Phoenix Wright.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But it's a bit strange, don't
+   you think?
+   ...Franziska von Karma?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (I seem to remember...)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (...there was snow on this
+   incinerator the first time I
+   saw it.)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (In other words, someone's
+   been using it to burn
+   something recently...)
+
+ von Karma:
+   Listen, Phoenix Wright!
+
+ von Karma:
+   It's impertinent to call
+   people by their full name!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I was only copying you.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Yellow gate ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There's a little gate that
+   leads into the garden.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It says "No Entry" on the
+   sign, though.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Come now, Phoenix Wright!
+   What are you doing? Let's
+   go in.
+
+ von Karma:
+   It's half open anyway.
+   What harm could come of it?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But it says, "No Entry".
+
+ von Karma:
+   ...
+
+ von Karma:
+   Don't you Americans enjoy
+   doing whatever you like and
+   then simply say, "Whatever!?"
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That's got nothing to do with
+   anything!
+   (And who told you that!?)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Wooden log on left with sign +++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   The sign says "Inner Temple".
+
+ von Karma:
+   I don't know how you're
+   reading it, but it's illegible
+   to me.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Actually, I can't read it
+   either.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Feigning comprehension isn't
+   a very good habit to have,
+   Phoenix Wright.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (She looks really happy to
+   have finally caught me on
+   something...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The gate +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ von Karma:
+   This must be the door that
+   leads to the Inner Temple.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Where Maya Fey was training
+   on the night of the murder...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Yes. There's a solitary room
+   there called the Training
+   Hall.
+
+ von Karma:
+   You could do with some
+   training yourself, Phoenix
+   Wright!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+   YEOWWW!
+
+ von Karma:
+   You're completely out of
+   shape.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Nngh... I don't know how
+   much more of this woman
+   I can take!)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MOVE TO: "Training Hall"

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

February 9
Inner Temple
Training Hall

Phoenix:
  ...

von Karma:
  What's wrong?
  Why are you so quiet?

Phoenix:
  Maya... She was supposed to
  be in here training.

von Karma:
  Yet, it appears she's nowhere
  to be seen.

Phoenix:
  ...

Phoenix:
  (What's that...?
  That strange lock...?)

Phoenix:
  (It wasn't there two days
  ago.)

Phoenix:
  (This whole room is really
  giving off some strange
  vibes...)

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Dresser drawers ++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's an antique dresser.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Don't you dare open it,
+   Phoenix Wright!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Now I know how Maya feels
+   when I tell her not to touch
+   things...)
+
+ von Karma:
+   ...
+
+ von Karma:
+   What a pity. It's full of
+   nothing but old clothes for
+   the acolytes.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I thought we weren't opening
+   it!
+
+ von Karma:
+   I'm from the Prosecutor's
+   Office. I can do anything.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Yeah, you can do anything...
+   Except stand up to a 9 year
+   old girl.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Sacred cavern entrance +++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Hmm... This door...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   When I was here two days ago,
+   that weird lock wasn't on it.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Those chains... It's almost as
+   if they're guarding something
+   inside that cavern.
+
+ von Karma:
+   I've never seen a lock quite
+   like this before.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (I have. I've seen locks and
+   chains just like this before.)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (They look just like the ones
+   that guard a person's secrets
+   during a Psyche-Lock.)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (I wonder if this lock is
+   guarding something, too.)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Dark secrets in a dark
+   cavern...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Hanging scroll +++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ von Karma:
+   What do you think this
+   yellowish poster is, Phoenix
+   Wright?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's a scroll, not a poster.
+   It's a picture of a woman
+   who's actually...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ von Karma:
+   A woman? I don't see any
+   woman here.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (There's a different
+   atmosphere in this room since
+   the last time I was here.)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (No... It's not a different
+   atmosphere, it's a different
+   smell!)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's gravy!
+
+ von Karma:
+   ...What's the matter?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   This scroll... It's been
+   completely covered in gravy!
+
+ von Karma:
+   Ah. Yes. There is a very
+   appetizing smell in the air.
+
+ von Karma:
+   But gravy is a type of sauce.
+
+ von Karma:
+   So when you run out of paint,
+   you Americans use gravy
+   as a substitute, I see.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   No! No one does that!
+   For starters, it stinks!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (This must be the gravy that
+   we had with the roast on the
+   night of the incident.)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (But why would anyone do this?
+   Why this scroll?)
+
+ *Hanging Scroll updated.
+ Touch to see before and after
+ view under the Check screen.*
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Hanging scroll (again) +++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (This scroll shows a picture
+   of Misty Fey, Master of the
+   Kurain Channeling Technique.)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (But why would anyone cover it
+   in gravy?)
+
+ von Karma:
+   I can't make out what's drawn
+   on this scroll at all.
+
+ von Karma:
+   I'll never understand you
+   Americans and your so-called
+   artists...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Artists? Um, yeah...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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

*AFTER EXAMINING THE LOCK AND HANGING SCROLL*

? ? ?:
  What took you so long?

? ? ?:
  I thought even you'd manage
  to get here faster than this,
  Mr. Trite.

Phoenix:
  P-Prosecutor Godot!
  I didn't know you were here.

von Karma:
  Prosecutor?

Phoenix:
  How come you didn't show up
  at the trial today?

Godot:
  Ha...!
  I could ask you the exact
  same question.

Phoenix:
  Huh? But I was...
  I had a cold, so...

Godot:
  I had something slightly more
  important than a common cold
  to deal with.

Godot:
  The importance of which is
  something you have no hope
  of ever understanding.

von Karma:
  Enough! I believe I have the
  measure of you.

von Karma:
  You are the very worst kind of
  prosecutor. What could be more
  important than a trial?

Godot:
  ...

Godot:
  Who's the wild mare, Trite?

Phoenix:
  This is Ms. von Karma. She
  was the acting prosecutor
  in your absence today.

Godot:
  Ha...!
  Well, I guess I owe you one
  then.

Godot:
  But you can go now, princess.
  It's time for the big boys
  to take the reins.

von Karma:
  Just who do you think you
  are!? This case is my...

Godot:
  Hey, Filly. Know your
  role, and shut your mouth.
  I can't stand women like you.

Godot:
  I'm only going to say this
  once, Lady von Whippingberg.
  Go home!

von Karma:
  ...

von Karma:
  Phoeeenix Wriiight!

Phoenix:
  Wh-What are you hitting me
  for!?

Godot:
  Ha...!
  You deserve more cracks of
  the whip than that, Trite.

Phoenix:
  Wh-What!?

Godot:
  You still don't get it, do
  you?

Godot:
  You don't realize that you've
  set something in motion that
  you'll never be able to undo.

Phoenix:
  (There's something different
  about Godot today...)

Phoenix:
  (I'm getting such a strong
  sense of... something from
  behind that mask of his.)

Phoenix:
  (Is it anger?
  Or...)

Phoenix:
  (Is it... sorrow?)

PRESENT (TO GODOT)
------------------

*** Anything *******************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   Um, Godot... Would you mind
*   taking a look at this?
*
* Godot:
*   Ha...! My eyes have a date
*   with the horizon. They're
*   flirting with the gulls.
*
* Godot:
*   I don't have any intention of
*   aiding a defense attorney like
*   you, Trite.
*
* von Karma:
*   But you must help him!
*   Even just a little!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Look who's talking!)
*
* von Karma:
*   I had no idea such a smooth
*   refusal could make me so
*   angry!
*
********************************************

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

*AFTER TALKING TO GODOT*

Godot:
  ...
  So.

Godot:
  I should be getting back to
  work.

Phoenix:
  Wait, Godot!

Phoenix:
  How sure about Maya are you?

Godot:
  ...
  There's no doubt in my mind.

Godot:
  She's in the Sacred Cavern
  somewhere. It's the only place
  she could be.

Phoenix:
  ...

Godot:
  You'd better start praying.

Godot:
  You'd better pray that friend
  of yours brings the accused
  back here soon.

Phoenix:
  (Edgeworth?)

Godot:
  Listen up, Trite.
  There's only one thing I want
  to say to you before I go.

Godot:
  I'll never accept you.
  Never.

Phoenix:
  ...!

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

von Karma:
  You should choose your friends
  more carefully, Phoenix
  Wright.

Phoenix:
  That's what everyone says.

Phoenix:
  (It looks like I don't have
  much of a choice...)

Phoenix:
  (I guess I'll just have to do
  what I can for now.)

MOVE TO: "Inner Temple Gate"

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

? ? ?:
  ...

? ? ?:
  I dunno...
  Should I... Or shouldn't I...?

Phoenix:
  (Sound like someone's talking
  to himself, but where's that
  coming from?)

Gumshoe:
  Yeah. I guess I better wash
  that off. That's what I'll do.

Gumshoe:
  No, but I can't do that.
  I'm a detective...

Gumshoe:
  ...Argh! My brain!
  This is driving me nuts!

Gumshoe:
  Aaaah!

von Karma:
  Is something troubling you,
  Scruffy?

Gumshoe:
  P-Please don't whip me
  like that all of a sudden,
  sir!

von Karma:
  It was merely a simple
  greeting. A friendly tap on
  the shoulder... with my whip.

Phoenix:
  So what's up, Gumshoe?
  Is something on your mind?

Gumshoe:
  H-H-How did you know, pal!?

von Karma:
  Perhaps you were trying to
  decided if you wanted to wash
  "that" off or not...?

Gumshoe:
  H-H-How did you know, sir!?

Gumshoe:
  Oh! Yeah!
  I nearly forgot.

Gumshoe:
  You can't go through that
  little gate there, OK?

Phoenix:
  Um... You mean the one that
  says "No Entry" on it?

Gumshoe:
  ...

Gumshoe:
  I... um... kinda already snuck
  in there!

Phoenix:
  (Is he trying to be clever
  or something...?)

von Karma:
  So what's behind there,
  Scruffy?

Gumshoe:
  Huh? A kind of... garden-like
  garden.

Phoenix:
  A garden?

Gumshoe:
  Yeah. Anyway, it's under
  investigation right now, so
  keep out!

Gumshoe:
  I'm not telling you, I'm
  asking you, pal! You got me?

Phoenix:
  (Isn't it normally the other
  way around?)

Gumshoe:
  Well, see you later!

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

von Karma:
  So... shall we adjourn to this
  garden, Phoenix Wright?

Phoenix:
  (Of course! What else would
  we do?)

Phoenix:
  (I really want to know what
  Gumshoe was thinking of
  washing off!)

MOVE TO: "Garden"

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

February 9
Inner Temple
Garden

Phoenix:
  ...

von Karma:
  There's a strange feeling in
  the air. I wonder what it
  is...

Phoenix:
  (Strange feeling?
  Forget about that!)

Phoenix:
  (What's that strange writing
  on the stone lantern?)

Gumshoe:
  Aaah!

Gumshoe:
  What are you doing here, sir!?
  I thought I said you can't
  come in here!

von Karma:
  Don't you know, Scruffy?
  A Von Karma will always show
  up wherever there is a clue!

von Karma:
  And there are plenty of clues
  to be found here.

Gumshoe:
  B-But...

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Bottom left area +++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   A little lantern, a little
+   statue...
+
+ von Karma:
+   It is certainly a quaint
+   little garden.
+   Oh!
+
+ von Karma:
+   What is this huge bowl here
+   for?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Oh, I know this one! It's...
+   um... It's a ...water bowl,
+   isn't it?
+
+ von Karma:
+   Everything else is completely
+   frozen over...
+
+ von Karma:
+   But the ice in this bowl has
+   been broken.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That's true...
+   (I wonder if this has any
+   impact on the case...?)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Umm... Well...
+   I, uh...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I doused my face earlier with
+   the water in this.
+   I was getting kinda sleepy...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Gaaargh!
+
+ von Karma:
+   Next time you're sleepy, you
+   need only come to me! Got it!?
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Red thing on the snow ++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There's a charm or something
+   poking out from the snow.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (It looks pretty old.
+   There's a leather cord
+   tied to it, too.)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Apparently, it belonged to the
+   victim.
+
+ von Karma:
+   To Ms. Elise Deauxnim?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah. There was a broken
+   leather cord around the lady's
+   neck.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   The ends of the cords found
+   on both the victim and on
+   this charm match exactly.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (This means that this charm
+   definitely belonged to
+   Ms. Deauxnim.)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (This could be a really
+   vital piece of evidence.)
+
+ *Kurain Master's Talisman
+ added to the Court Record.*
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Any torch (or their stands) ++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There are a couple of
+   torches here.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess you need all the light
+   you can get up here in the
+   mountains.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah. I was looking at those
+   things, pal.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It looks like they've been lit
+   pretty recently.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Recently?
+   How recent are we talking
+   about?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   As recent as the night of
+   the murder...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Maya was training here on
+   the night of the murder...)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (It's not unreasonable to
+   think these things were lit
+   up at the time, I guess.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Ground surrounding the stone lantern +++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...Well, this is odd.
+   There's no snow on the ground
+   here.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   And it's an almost perfect
+   rectangle. It couldn't have
+   happened naturally.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Yes. It appears as though
+   someone has carefully cleared
+   away the snow.
+
+ von Karma:
+   No doubt it was you, wasn't
+   it, Scruffy!?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Huh? No, it wasn't me, sir!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It was already like that when
+   my men and I got here to
+   start the investigation.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (If it wasn't the police, then
+   who did it...?)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Oh, yeah. There's something I
+   need to tell you. Just between
+   the three of us, OK?
+
+ von Karma:
+   What is it?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It's top secret.
+   You can't tell anyone, got it?
+
+ von Karma:
+   ...Understood.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Well, when I was a kid, I got
+   knocked out of the local
+   wrestling contest, you see.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I was so disappointed, I just
+   picked up my mouth guard and
+   cried all the way home.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Man, I got in so much trouble
+   when I left it on the couch!
+
+ von Karma:
+   ...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...
+
+ von Karma:
+   ...Is that it?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   That's it.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Gaaargh!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Whoever cleared the snow away
+   must have had a reason...)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Although I can't even begin
+   to imagine what that reason
+   could be.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The stone lantern ++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   What the heck is that!?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Uh-oh...
+   You spotted it, huh, pal?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Are you kidding me!?
+   It couldn't be more obvious!
+
+ von Karma:
+   It says... "Maya"...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah. And before you ask,
+   it's written in blood...
+
+ von Karma:
+   You will answer all our
+   questions now, Scruffy!
+   Without exception!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Y-Yes, sir!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

PRESENT (TO GUMSHOE)
--------------------

*** Attorney's Badge ***********************
*
* Phoenix:
*   Hey, look. It's my attorney's
*   badge.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Ha ha. Good one, pal.
*   You're always good for a
*   laugh with your little badge.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   But a real man...
*   A real man has a police badge.
*
********************************************

*** Magatama *******************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Hey, that looks good.
*   Is it a cough drop?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I tell you, pal. I've had a
*   sore throat all day.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Ack! No!
*   That's my Magatama!
*   You can't eat it!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh...
*
* Phoenix:
*   (At least he doesn't just put
*   stuff in his mouth first and
*   ask questions later anymore.)
*
********************************************

*** Hanging Scroll *************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   Do you know anything about
*   this scroll, Detective?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Well, I know it smells great!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah, this is just the kind of
*   weather for some steaming
*   mashed potatoes and gravy.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I really love that stuff.
*   I eat it so much that my
*   coat even smel--
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Aaah!
*
* von Karma:
*   Have you nothing else to say
*   about this than your inane
*   ramblings about gravy!?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*   N-Not really.
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...Let's leave it at that, OK?
*
********************************************

*** Photo of Elise or Elise Deauxnim profile ***
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She sure was a mysterious
*   person.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Her real name, her past...
*   It's all a complete mystery.
*
* von Karma:
*   Still, it strikes me as odd...
*
* von Karma:
*   Why would someone who
*   wishes to remain anonymous
*   become an author?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   You know what probably
*   happened?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I bet she didn't know her
*   books were gonna be such a
*   success. That's what I think.
*
********************************************

*** Shichishito ****************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I didn't follow the ins and
*   outs of it, but...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...it turned out that this
*   wasn't the murder weapon,
*   right?
*
* Phoenix:
*   If what Sister Bikini saw is
*   right, then no, it's not.
*
* Phoenix:
*   She said the murder weapon was
*   thrust into the victim up to
*   the hilt.
*
* Phoenix:
*   But the blood stains on this
*   aren't consistent with her
*   story.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Don't worry, pal! I'll
*   uncover the real murder
*   weapon.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   If I haven't turned it up by
*   Spring, you can take my badge!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (The case will be long over
*   by then, Gumshoe!)
*
********************************************

*** Victim's Staff *************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   That staff belonged to the
*   victim.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Yeah, and apart from the
*   crystal missing from the top,
*   there's nothing wrong with it.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh, I just remembered
*   something important! This
*   is just between us, OK?
*
* von Karma:
*   Is it going to have anything
*   to do with the case,
*   Detective?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Well, no. But it's really...
*
* von Karma:
*   Then I'm not interested.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yes, sir.
*
********************************************

*** Crime Photo ****************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   What do you make of this
*   photo of the crime scene...?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   It's really gruesome... All I
*   gotta say is that the killer
*   is messed up in the head.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   But it turns out that
*   Shichishito thing wasn't
*   even the murder weapon.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   So then, why would someone
*   stab it in the victim like
*   that?
*
* Phoenix:
*   (That's the mystery we're
*   here to solve...)
*
********************************************

*** Larry's Sketch *************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   It was like a circus today
*   in court.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   All thanks to this little
*   sketch.
*
* von Karma:
*   At the risk of repeating
*   myself...
*
* von Karma:
*   ...you really ought to choose
*   your friends more carefully,
*   Phoenix Wright.
*
* Phoenix:
*   OK, I know Larry's a bit
*   out there...
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...but he genuinely wants to
*   help Iris. I'm sure of that.
*
* Phoenix:
*   He wouldn't have produced
*   this for no good reason.
*
* von Karma:
*   You are nothing more than a
*   marshmallow on the inside.
*   The both of you.
*
********************************************

*** Crystal Sphere *************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   This was found close to Dusky
*   Bridge, wasn't it?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   That's what that artist guy
*   said, yeah.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Right after the defendant flew
*   over the burning bridge!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   According to his testimony,
*   she dropped it when she landed
*   on the other side.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (But this crystal didn't
*   belong to Iris.)
*
* von Karma:
*   The crystal had dropped
*   out of Ms. Elise Deauxnim's
*   staff.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   And there are traces of blood
*   on it, too.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (The real question is what was
*   it doing near the foot of
*   Dusky Bridge...?)
*
********************************************

*** Kurain Master's Talisman ***************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   That thing must've been worn
*   by the victim. There's no
*   other way of looking at it.
*
* Phoenix:
*   You mean, because of the
*   matching leather cord found
*   around the victim's neck?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah. I bet it was one of
*   those things she always wore.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I've got this safe driving
*   charm I've been wearing for
*   over a year now.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   If I ever get into an
*   accident, it guarantees it'll
*   be the other guy's fault.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Isn't it supposed to stop
*   you from having an accident
*   in the first place?)
*
********************************************

*** Maya Fey profile ***********************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   The situation hasn't changed.
*   We still don't know anything
*   about Maya's whereabouts.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She's gotta be in the Sacred
*   Cavern, though. That's the
*   only place left.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I heard it's real cold in
*   there. We've gotta get her out
*   fast, or it could be bad, pal.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Isn't there anything you can
*   do, Detective!?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   What are you talking about!?
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...Huh?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   We're already on it! You
*   couldn't get a faster response
*   from a computer.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Mr. Godot put everything in
*   place right away. That guy
*   doesn't mess around.
*
* Phoenix:
*   G-Godot?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah. The coffee-drinking
*   mystery man who didn't show
*   in court.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I gotta say. He's totally made
*   me rethink my perception of
*   him, pal.
*
********************************************

*** Mia Fey profile ************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She cross-examined me once,
*   you know.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah. That was us. The big
*   guns locking horns.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Witness versus lawyer!
*   It was a battle of cunning
*   tactics and tricks.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (But the witness isn't
*   supposed to play any
*   tricks...)
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I can't believe she's gone...
*
********************************************

*** Pearl Fey profile **********************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Apparently, the girl was
*   trapped over here since the
*   night of the murder.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Did she say anything to you
*   about Maya?
*
* Phoenix:
*   She wouldn't tell me...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She's not gonna tell me
*   something if she wouldn't even
*   speak to you, pal.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She was real upset. She
*   wouldn't stop crying.
*
* von Karma:
*   Phoenix Wright!
*   Look sharp and go comfort that
*   poor young girl!
*
* Phoenix:
*   I will... Trust me, I will...
*
********************************************

*** Godot profile **************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   That guy's got more mysteries
*   than a Choose Your Own
*   Escapade book, pal.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Yeah, I know.
*   Trust me I already know.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I can't believe he skipped the
*   trial like that, without even
*   getting permission.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   He'd have been fired for sure
*   if he worked for a normal
*   company.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Hmm... Never would've
*   expected the Prosecutor's
*   Office to be so lax...)
*
* von Karma:
*   Don't get the wrong
*   impression, Phoenix Wright.
*   More importantly...
*
* von Karma:
*   Doesn't it strike you as odd
*   that the police are unaware of
*   that man's medical situation?
*
* --------------------------------------------
*
* Godot:
*   Of course, being extradited
*   from Hell is a tedious
*   affair.
*
* Godot:
*   The meticulous regeneration
*   and adjustment of all your
*   internal organs is...
*
* Godot:
*   Well... Let's just say modern
*   medicine allows us all to live
*   to a ripe old age.
*
* Godot:
*   Even someone like me.
*
* --------------------------------------------
*
* Phoenix:
*   Yeah. Why is he hiding that
*   from everyone?
*
* von Karma:
*   Additionally it raises
*   another question...
*
* von Karma:
*   Why did he choose to tell
*   only you?
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Yeah. Why did he?)
*
********************************************

*** Dick Gumshoe profile *******************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Hey, you wanna hear
*   something, pal?
*   Come on, I know you do!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Maggey says she's gonna buy
*   me a new coat!
*
* Phoenix:
*   Really? That's great!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah. I think it's to say
*   thanks for helping her out
*   during that last case!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Which means...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I can finally chuck out this
*   stinky, sweat-soaked rag!
*
* von Karma:
*   You mean, you don't have any
*   special attachments to that
*   coat...?
*
* von Karma:
*   And after all the effort I
*   took to mail it back to you
*   from Germany...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Ah, well, I'll be sure to take
*   good care of it once it's
*   retired, sir.
*
********************************************

*** Bikini profile *************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She's a sweet old lady.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She doesn't look like the
*   lying type to me.
*
* Phoenix:
*   But there was a problem with
*   her testimony, wasn't there?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah, but I don't think it
*   was her fault.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She was just trying to say the
*   right thing, and it came out
*   wrong, that's all.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I know what it's like.
*   Happens to me all the time!
*
* von Karma:
*   For a detective, you are
*   completely lacking in
*   powers of observation!
*
********************************************

*** Iris profile ***************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I dunno. I'm not so sure
*   anymore.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   The clues we found today
*   have turned this case all
*   topsy-turvy.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I can't see how Iris could've
*   done it now.
*
* von Karma:
*   Oh? How interesting, Scruffy.
*   Sadly, I don't share the
*   same sentiment.
*
* von Karma:
*   Prepare yourself well for
*   tomorrow, Phoenix Wright!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Why does every prosecutor
*   want to burn me at the
*   stake so badly...?)
*
********************************************

*** Laurice Deauxnim profile ***************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   He was Ms. Elise Deauxnim's
*   apprentice, or so I heard.
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...Well, I suppose you could
*   call him that.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   The guy drew a portrait of
*   me, you know.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Well, lucky you, I suppose.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah, but I had to pay him
*   50 cents for it.
*
* Phoenix:
*   That's pretty awful.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   You aren't really enthused
*   about this guy either, huh...?
*
* Phoenix:
*   Well... he made a mockery
*   of the court today.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (And I'm almost sure he did it
*   on purpose, too...)
*
********************************************

*** Franziska von Karma profile ************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ............
*   Wow! What a beauty, huh?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Gaargh!
*
* von Karma:
*   What was that long pause
*   for, Scruffy!?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ............
*   That's a real nice broach
*   she's got, too.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Gaargh!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Gumshoe needs to learn how
*   to give compliments faster
*   than Franziska gives lashes.)
*
********************************************

*** Miles Edgeworth profile ****************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I haven't seen Mr. Edgeworth
*   for about a year. Talk about
*   a long time!
*
* Phoenix:
*   Do you know why he moved
*   overseas?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I don't know. Probably to look
*   cool.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Huh?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   There's a lot of weight
*   attached to doing research
*   overseas, you know.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Once I've done my stint in
*   Paris, you'll have to call me
*   Monsieur Gumchaussure.
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...
*
* Phoenix:
*   People really don't get
*   Edgeworth, do they?
*
* von Karma:
*   It's his own fault for not
*   explaining anything about
*   himself.
*
********************************************

*** Anything else **************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   What about this, Detective
*   Gumshoe? Any thoughts?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah... Well...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   It's pretty chilly today, huh?
*   My brain doesn't work properly
*   in the cold.
*
* von Karma:
*   Perhaps we'll just have to
*   wait until Summer when it's
*   warmer?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh, no. My brain doesn't work
*   properly in the heat.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I'm kinda weak in the head.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (There are some things you
*   shouldn't advertise, Gumshoe.
*   Especially in front of her...)

MOVE TO: "Main Gate"

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

February 9
Hazakura Temple
Main Gate

von Karma:
  It seems you have a visitor.

Iris:
  Mr. Wright!

Phoenix:
  Iris!
  I'm really glad to see you!

Edgeworth:
  Godot managed to mobilize
  the police by claiming a state
  of emergency.

von Karma:
  Not him again.

Phoenix:
  Never mind him! We've gotta
  hurry and unlock the Sacred
  Cavern...

Iris:
  I'm sorry, Mr. Wright! It's my
  fault someone so important
  to you is locked in there...

Iris:
  Mr. Edgeworth. Can we
  finish our conversation later?

Edgeworth:
  ...Alright.

Edgeworth:
  Let's hurry to the Inner
  Temple then.
  ...I'll see you later, Wright.

Phoenix:
  *HOLD IT!*

Phoenix:
  Wait, Edgeworth!
  I'm coming with you guys!

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  Sorry, Wright.
  I can't allow you to come
  with us.

Phoenix:
  What!?

Edgeworth:
  I hate to be the one to break
  it to you, but...

Edgeworth:
  ...Maya Fey is in a rather...
  delicate position.

Phoenix:
  What do you mean by a
  delicate position...?

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  This isn't simply a rescue
  operation, Wright. It's also
  an investigation.

Edgeworth:
  That being the case... we
  can't allow members of the
  public to interfere.

Phoenix:
  C-Come on, Edgeworth...

Edgeworth:
  If anything happens, you'll be
  the first to know.
  ...Please understand, Wright.

Phoenix:
  But it's Maya!

Iris:
  Mr. Wright!

Iris:
  All that matters is that
  Mystic Maya is rescued,
  correct?

Phoenix:
  I...

von Karma:
  Listen to the voice of reason
  for a change, Phoenix Wright.

Edgeworth:
  From now on, consider anything
  beyond Dusky Bridge to be off
  limits.

Edgeworth:
  We'll be going now...
  Excuse us.

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

Phoenix:
  ...

Phoenix:
  Aaack!

von Karma:
  This is no time to be standing
  around, Phoenix Wright!

von Karma:
  Aren't there other things
  that demand your attention?

Phoenix:
  ...
  (She's right...)

Phoenix:
  ...Thanks.
  For reminding me.

MOVE TO: "Main Hall"

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

February 9
Hazakura Temple
Main Hall

Bikini:
  ...

Phoenix:
  Sister Bikini looks like she's
  shrunk some since I last
  saw her...

von Karma:
  Don't be so rude, Phoenix
  Wright.

von Karma:
  What's wrong, Sister Bikini?

Bikini:
  My my my! Hello, you two!
  How are you doing?
  Wa ha. Wa ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Bikini:
  Hmmmaaaaaaaaaaaaah...

Phoenix:
  (From the sound of that sigh,
  I guess she's still pretty
  down.)

Bikini:
  Iris was just here, you know.
  She was accompanied by that
  handsome, crimson-clad prince!

Phoenix:
  (Is she talking about
  Edgeworth?)

Bikini:
  It was just a courtesy call.
  I wasn't allowed to talk with
  her at all.

Bikini:
  Oh dear. It's all my fault
  that this has happened.

Bikini:
  Poor Iris. She was worried
  about my back, would you
  believe?

Bikini:
  What have I done to her...?

von Karma:
  Only what you had to do,
  Sister.

von Karma:
  You bravely and truthfully
  testified about what you saw.
  There's no shame in that.

von Karma:
  And we'll see to it that your
  testimony wasn't made in vain!

Bikini:
  ...

Bikini:
  Well, I don't hear anyone else
  saying that.

Bikini:
  ...
  ......

Bikini:
  Mr. Blue-Suits doesn't seem
  to share your opinion, I see.

Phoenix:
  Huh? Me?

Phoenix:
  ...Ack!

von Karma:
  *glare*

Phoenix:
  O-Oh, yes!
  You did great, Sister Bikini.
  ...Absolutely spectacular!

Bikini:
  *sniffle*
  You two are the only ones
  who've said that to meeee!

Phoenix:
  (I can't shake the feeling
  that I just became a shill
  to a shrew.)

von Karma:
  Do you have a problem,
  Phoenix Wright?

Phoenix:
  (Sure, she was brave to
  testify so truthfully like
  that.)

Phoenix:
  (But I know she's still hiding

-- Elise Deauxnim --

Phoenix:
  Sister Bikini. The truth is
  becoming increasingly
  clear to me.

Phoenix:
  I'm convinced that Ms. Elise
  Deauxnim had a special
  significance to this temple.

Phoenix:
  As to why she had a special
  significance, I believe it has
  to do with her true identity.

Bikini:
  What on Earth are you
  talking about?
  She... She was...

Bikini:
  M-Mystic Elise was an author.
  Just an author... of picture
  books.

Phoenix:
  To be honest...

Phoenix:
  I had my suspicions almost
  immediately after I met her.

Bikini:
  S-Suspicions?

Phoenix:
  Yes. But I didn't have any
  evidence to support my theory,
  though.

Phoenix:
  But now I do. This piece of
  evidence proves Ms. Deauxnim's
  true identity!

x   What do you have to say to

x
x Bikini:
x   Of course!
x   I don't know why it didn't

x
x Bikini:
x   Your heart. It's impure!
x   It's riddled with wickedness

x
x Phoenix:
x   Huh?
x
x Bikini:
x   That's why you keep coming up

Phoenix:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Phoenix:
  Ms. Deauxnim had this charm
  with her at all times.

Bikini:
  Kaaargh!
  Where did you...!?

Phoenix:
  This isn't some cheap
  good luck charm, either.

Bikini:
  Th-Then... What do you
  think it is, Mr. Wright?

Bikini:
  Wh-What could a talisman like
  that possibly mean?

Phoenix:
  It's a "talisman", is it?
  Interesting...

Bikini:
  Oops!

Phoenix:
  This thing speaks volumes
  about who Ms. Deauxnim
  really was.

Phoenix:
  This talisman and one other

*Present Hanging Scroll*

Phoenix:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Phoenix:
  The painting is obscured by
  this gravy stain at the
  moment...

Bikini:
  ...!

Phoenix:
  But this scroll shows the
  Master of the Kurain
  Channeling Technique.

Phoenix:
  The crest at the top is a
  sign of that honorable title.

Phoenix:
  The very same crest that
  adorns the talisman the
  victim carried with her!

Bikini:
  Aaaah!

Phoenix:
  This crest is reserved for
  the Master of Kurain.

Bikini:
  Who on Earth told you that
  nonsense!? I-I've got no idea
  what you're talking about!

Phoenix:
  The new Master, Maya Fey,
  told me!

Bikini:
  Wh...

Bikini:
  WHAT!?

Bikini:
  Y-You mean that acolyte...
  is Misty Fey's...

Phoenix:
  Daughter? Yes.

Bikini:
  ...

Bikini:
  Are you sure?

Phoenix:
  Yes. In fact, since her first
  daughter passed away, Maya is
  Misty Fey's sole successor.

Bikini:

*AFTER TALKING TO BIKINI*

Bikini:
  ...

von Karma:
  Wh-What's happening?

Phoenix:
  (I-It can't be...)

Bikini:
  E-Earthquake!

Phoenix:
  Aaaaaaaargh!

Bikini:
  Oh my goodness!
  The Inner Temple! This kind of
  tremor might...

von Karma:
  The Inner Temple?

Bikini:
  The Sacred Cavern in the
  Training Hall! It might very
  well cave in!

Phoenix:
  WH-WHAT!?

Phoenix:
  MAYA!!!

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

von Karma:
  It...
  It seems to have... passed...

Phoenix:
  Well, we can't just stand
  here and do nothing!
  Let's go!

von Karma:
  What? Where?

Phoenix:
  To the Inner Temple, of
  course! Where else!?

von Karma:
  ...!

Phoenix:
  Sister Bikini!
  We'll finish this later,
  alright!?

Bikini:
  Of course.
  You run along now!

Bikini:
  People may have been hurt.
  I must get some first aid
  kits ready.

von Karma:
  Come on then, Phoenix Wright!

von Karma:
  They won't bar you from
  entering as long as I'm with
  you.

Phoenix:
  Th-Thank you...

Phoenix:
  (Right at that moment, I had
  the worst feeling in my gut.)

Phoenix:
  (We just had an earthquake...)

Phoenix:
  (I wonder if he's alright...)

von Karma:
  You look worried.
  ...Are you thinking about
  Miles Edgeworth?

Phoenix:
  ...

Phoenix:
  Come on. Let's go!

MOVE TO: "Main Gate"

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

Phoenix:
  (We've gotta hurry to the
  Inner Temple and...)

Edgeworth:
  ...Wright!

Phoenix:
  Aah! Wh-What are you doing
  here?

Edgeworth:
  Gurgh...

Edgeworth:
  H-How could I have...?

Edgeworth:
  ...

von Karma:
  How do you expect us to
  understand if you don't speak
  up!

Phoenix:
  Yeooowww!

Phoenix:
  Hey! Why am I the one getting
  whipped!?

Edgeworth:
  Sh-She's gone...

Phoenix:
  (N-No...!)

Edgeworth:
  The defendant... Iris...
  She's... gone...

von Karma:
  Gone where?

Edgeworth:
  She fled...
  She escaped!

von Karma:
  WHAT!?

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

Phoenix:
  So... it was just now...
  during the...

Edgeworth:
  ...

Phoenix:
  (It's easy to see Edgeworth's
  one and only weakness.)

Phoenix:
  (His fear of earthquakes...)

Edgeworth:
  I should've known better
  than to escort the defendant
  alone!

Edgeworth:
  As soon as the ground started
  shaking, everything went
  dark before my eyes and...

Edgeworth:
  ...I stupidly passed out!

Phoenix:
  That incident... haunts you
  to this day, doesn't it?

Edgeworth:
  ...

Edgeworth:
  That's no excuse for letting
  the suspect get away...

Edgeworth:
  I can't believe I let it
  happen.

Edgeworth:
  Wright, the Inner Temple area
  is a dead end, so she only
  could've escaped to this side.

von Karma:
  We haven't seen her.

Edgeworth:
  Then we need to get a manhunt
  underway now, and search Eagle
  Mountain from top to bottom!

Phoenix:
  Wait, Edgeworth.

Phoenix:
  Have you thoroughly checked
  the Inner Temple yet?

Edgeworth:
  Don't be ridiculous!
  Why would I?

Edgeworth:
  The Inner Temple is like an
  island. There's no way to
  escape but to cross...

Phoenix:
  No, that's not it...

Phoenix:
  Iris isn't the type of person
  to run away, Edgeworth.

Edgeworth:
  What are you talking about?

Phoenix:
  Sister Bikini mentioned
  something when we were
  with her.

Phoenix:
  She said that the Sacred
  Cavern might've caved in
  because of the quake.

von Karma:
  Then you think Iris might've
  gone to the Inner Temple to
  check on the situation...?

Phoenix:
  Listen, Edgeworth. I'm sure
  she's at the Inner Temple.
  A manhunt is not necessary.

Edgeworth:
  Wright...

Phoenix:
  Let's not waste any more time.
  We need to get to the Training
  Hall's Sacred Cavern now!

Edgeworth:
  ...
  Alright. Let's go!

Phoenix:
  (Fortunately, the Sacred
  Cavern didn't cave in.)

*5 PSYCHE-LOCKS*

Edgeworth:
  Wright, is this what Godot
  was talking about?

Phoenix:
  ...Yeah.
  The trick locks.

Edgeworth:
  Now then, Iris.
  Please remove these at once.

Iris:
  Umm... Mr. Edgeworth...
  I'm afraid I can't...

Iris:
  It-It's not possible for me...

Edgeworth:
  What!?

Phoenix:
  (During the earthquake, when
  the cavern was in danger of
  caving in, Iris escaped.)

Phoenix:
  (And I know that there was
  only one lock when I last
  came here.)

von Karma:
  So you're saying that you
  can't undo the new locks?

Iris:
  ...Yes.

Edgeworth:
  If only I was stronger...!

Phoenix:
  Edgeworth, how are you
  feeling? You look a little
  pale in the face.

Edgeworth:
  Like you're one to talk with
  your face all green.

von Karma:
  ...Miles Edgeworth.
  Go and get some air.

von Karma:
  I'll watch over the suspect.
  You go and get a grip on
  yourself.

Edgeworth:
  Don't be ridiculous!
  I'm perfectly finngh!

von Karma:
  There's no telling what sort
  of mistakes you could make
  in your current state.

von Karma:
  Go and get some rest!
  That's your only concern
  now, Miles Edgeworth!

Edgeworth:
  ......
  ...
  Understood.

Edgeworth:
  I'll handle the investigation
  in the garden... You take
  care of things here.

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

Phoenix:
  (Edgeworth...)

Phoenix:
  He's got so much pride that
  he's probably off crying in
  a corner of the garden...

von Karma:
  Pride is simply another
  trap that hinders us in
  our lives.

von Karma:
  That said... One must
  have pride to be effective
  on the job.

von Karma:
  At any rate, it seems that
  this is where we part ways,
  Phoenix Wright.

von Karma:
  I'm going to stay here and
  see if I can't help solve
  these bothersome puzzles.

Phoenix:
  ...I see.
  Well, thanks for your help.

Phoenix:
  Now then... Do you mind if
  I ask you a few things, Iris?

Iris:
  No, not at all...

+   Hmm... This door...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   When I was here earlier,
+   there was only one lock,
+   but now there's five of them.
+
+ von Karma:
+   Those chains... It's almost as
+   if they're guarding something
+   inside that cavern.
+
+ von Karma:
+   I've never seen locks quite
+   like these before.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (I have. I've seen locks
+   and chains just like these
+   before.)

MOVE TO: "Garden"

February 9
Inner Temple
Garden

Phoenix:
  The cops are still combing
  the place. They look pretty
  nervous...

Phoenix:
  I'd be nervous, too.
  It's got to be a tough job.

Phoenix:
  Especially with someone giving
  you the evil eye the whole
  time.

Edgeworth:
  *mutter, mutter*
  How could I have done that...?

Phoenix:
  (Wow. I can't believe it's
  still bothering him.)

Phoenix:
  Edgeworth...?

Edgeworth:
  Aaaah!
  ...

Phoenix:
  ...

Phoenix:
  Hey! Don't you dare run away!

Edgeworth:
  ...What do you want, Wright?

Phoenix:
  What do I want?

Edgeworth:
  If you came here to laugh at
  me, then get on with it.

Edgeworth:
  Go on! Laugh away!

Phoenix:
  (*sigh* I was ready to hug it
  out with him, but he's just
  the same, prideful Edgeworth.)

Phoenix:
  You went back to the Criminal
  Affairs Department, right?

Phoenix:
  You said you wanted to
  look into something concerning
  Iris.

Edgeworth:
  Y-Yes...

Edgeworth:
  ...And thanks to what I found,
  I was reminded of something
  terrible.

EXAMINE
-------

+++ Bottom left area +++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   A little lantern, a little
+   statue...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's small, but the whole
+   place is incredibly well-kept.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   There's just one thing that's
+   troubling me.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Everything else is covered in
+   snow or frozen over...
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...but the ice in this bowl
+   has been broken by someone.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Maybe one of the detectives
+   washed their face in it or
+   something?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Don't be ridiculous, Wright!
+   No detective would be that
+   careless at a crime scene!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (He's really angry... I'd
+   better not say it was Gumshoe
+   or his salary's gonna pay...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Red thing on the snow ++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There's a charm or something
+   poking out from the snow.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (It looks pretty old.
+   There's a leather cord
+   tied to it, too.)
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   It belonged to the victim.
+   We're sure of that now.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   It's going in the evidence
+   room once the investigation
+   is over, so hands off, Wright.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   You don't need to tell me
+   that!
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Well, our dear friend Larry
+   just tried to steal it when no
+   one was looking.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (He probably just wanted
+   something to remember his
+   esteemed teacher by...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Any torch (or their stands) ++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There are torches of the
+   naked flame variety.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess you need all the light
+   you can get up here in the
+   mountains.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Accordingly to Detective
+   Gumshoe, they were lit on the
+   night of the murder.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Well, Maya was training up
+   here, so there's nothing
+   strange about that.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Except...
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Apparently, they don't light
+   these torches for training
+   sessions.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Huh?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   I heard that too much light
+   isn't conducive to spiritual
+   training.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Oh... I didn't know that...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Ground surrounding the stone lantern +++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Why's this the only area
+   with no snow?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Someone must have cleared it
+   away. What other explanation
+   is there?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Of course, I played the
+   "What If?" game as well...
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   But when I asked our trusty
+   bungler, Detective Gumshoe,
+   he said it wasn't him.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (I suppose Edgeworth has a
+   point...)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Whoever cleared the snow
+   away must've had a reason
+   to do so.)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (I just can't imagine what
+   that reason could be.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The stone lantern ++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   I suppose you've noticed
+   that Maya's name is written
+   on this lantern.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's pretty hard to miss,
+   you know.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   It's written in Ms. Deauxnim's
+   blood.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   She was probably forced up
+   against the lantern by the
+   killer.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Then with her back against
+   the lantern, she wrote that
+   name with her finger.
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   That's why it's written
+   upside-down.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   You think the victim wrote
+   this herself?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   Isn't that the obvious
+   conclusion?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But why would she write Maya's
+   name?
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   ...
+
+ Edgeworth:
+   I don't think that's something
+   I want to discuss with you.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

> Phoenix:
>   So you went back to the

>
> Edgeworth:
>   Yes. I checked over every

>
> Edgeworth:
>   And I was right.
>
> Edgeworth:
>   I had seen her face before,
>   six years ago.
>
> Phoenix:
>   Six years ago...?
>
> Edgeworth:
>   It was my first appearance in

> Phoenix:

PRESENT (TO EDGEWORTH)
----------------------

*** Attorney's Badge ***********************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Is that your attorney's badge?
*   Interesting.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I never imagined I'd ever see
*   you wearing one of these,
*   Wright.
*
* Phoenix:
*   It's because of you that I
*   became one, Edgeworth.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*
* Phoenix:
*   Not that I have any regrets.
*   I really don't.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*
* Phoenix:
*   (If you're trying to say
*   "thanks", you can start by
*   saying it a bit louder...)
*
********************************************

*** Photo of Elise or Elise Deauxnim profile ***
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Another victim we know nothing
*   about. Same as always.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I hope you'll tell me if you
*   know something about our
*   mystery woman, Wright.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (I know that Elise Deauxnim
*   was no ordinary visitor to
*   the temple.)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (But her true identity could
*   be a useful weapon for the
*   defense.)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (And I can't give that away
*   just like that...)
*
********************************************

*** Iris's Hood ****************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Iris gave that to you,
*   didn't she?
*
* Phoenix:
*   Yes, and it really works! It
*   helped my fever go down
*   quicker. I'm sure of it.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   So you say! But your face is
*   as white as a sheet, and sweat
*   is running down your cheek!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Anyway, it seems to me like
*   there's something going on
*   between the two of you.
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...
*   Actually...
*
* Phoenix:
*   I don't know exactly why, but
*   there's something about Iris
*   that just tugs at me.
*
* Phoenix:
*   I can't figure out whether I
*   feel like I know her, or don't
*   know her at all.
*
* Phoenix:
*   It's really weird.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Hmm...
*
********************************************

*** Larry's Sketch *************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Get that piece of filth out
*   of my face!
*
* Phoenix:
*   You're still mad, huh,
*   Edgeworth?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I know a thing or two about
*   Larry Butz, just like you.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   We both know he likes to act
*   up, but this? Even he couldn't
*   make something like this up.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   If this is what he drew,
*   then... this is what he saw.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   As unbelievable as it may
*   seem...
*
* Phoenix:
*   I know.
*   That's what I think, too.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Every time! Every single time
*   I see that guy, he's in it up
*   to his neck!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (I knew it. Edgeworth's still
*   mad as a hornet at Larry.)
*
********************************************

*** Maya Fey profile ***********************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I don't know Maya Fey very
*   well.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   But it seems to me that the
*   girl is always landing herself
*   in trouble.
*
* Phoenix:
*   It seems to me that you know
*   her better than you think!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I do sincerely hope she's
*   going to be alright...
*
********************************************

*** Mia Fey profile ************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   One of the biggest names in
*   the world of law, as I'm sure
*   you'll agree.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   For better or for worse, we
*   were only destined to meet
*   once in the courtroom.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (I know. I read all about it.)
*
* Edgeworth:
*   It was the first time for the
*   both of us. Two novices, head
*   to head.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I can still remember how
*   downhearted I felt after that
*   trial ended the way it did...
*
* Phoenix:
*   (I wonder if Mia felt the
*   same way, too.)
*
********************************************

*** Pearl Fey profile **********************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   It seems Pearl was trapped on
*   this side of the river on the
*   night of the murder.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Did she tell you anything?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Listen, Wright...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   She's just a kid. I can't
*   force things out of her.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   You'll have to be the one to
*   find out what she knows.
*
********************************************

*** Godot profile **************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   He's something of a legend,
*   I hear.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Don't say it like you don't
*   know anything about him!
*   Tell me what you know.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   It's a bit strange, actually.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   If he really was anything
*   special, I should have heard
*   about him by now.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I'm always well-informed about
*   the rookies coming into the
*   Prosecutor's Office, you know.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Then you mean...
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...he isn't anything special?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Hmph. You should already
*   know the answer to that.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Although, there is one other
*   possibility...
*
* Phoenix:
*   What's that?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   He could have come into the
*   profession from a different
*   channel.
*
* Phoenix:
*   What different channel?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   There's more than one way to
*   become a prosecutor, Wright.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Perhaps he started off as a
*   defense attorney, but decided
*   it wasn't for him?
*
* Phoenix:
*   A defense attorney...?
*   (I didn't even know you could
*   switch sides like that...)
*
********************************************

*** Dick Gumshoe profile *******************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I was just with Detective
*   Gumshoe. I treated him to
*   some pasta.
*
* Phoenix:
*   You owe him that much!
*   After all, it's your fault
*   his salary is so low!
*
* Edgeworth:
*   H-How's it my fault?
*
* Phoenix:
*   And look, if you're going to
*   buy the guy lunch, at least
*   get him something decent, OK?
*
* Phoenix:
*   Gumshoe practically lives on
*   pasta and noodles already.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Well I did order some extra
*   parmesan cheese on top.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   He was crying tears of joy as
*   he dug into it. It was quite
*   moving.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (...All you have to do is
*   give the poor guy a raise...)
*
********************************************

*** Bikini profile *************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   It's crossed my mind once or
*   twice that her testimony might
*   be a bunch of lies.
*
* Phoenix:
*   There certainly are a lot of
*   problems with it.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   The thing is...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...as far as I can tell, she
*   has no reason to deceive us.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I believe she did meet the
*   defendant at the Inner Temple,
*   and witnessed the murder, too.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   The one in the Hazakura Temple
*   courtyard, in any case.
*
********************************************

*** Iris profile ***************************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Apparently, Iris was taken in
*   by the sisters here at the
*   temple when she was a child.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   However, we still don't know
*   much about her past, so we're
*   looking into it.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (This reminds me...)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Edgeworth went back to the
*   Criminal Affairs Department to
*   look up some stuff on her...)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (I should ask him what he
*   found.)
*
********************************************

*** Laurice Deauxnim profile ***************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Apparently he had become
*   something of an apprentice to
*   Elise Deauxnim.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Yes. Something like that.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   He did this portrait for me
*   earlier.
*
* Phoenix:
*   That's great...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Let's just leave it at that
*   about Larry, alright?
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Looks like someone's still
*   mad at the Butz for his
*   performance in court today.)
*
********************************************

*** Franziska von Karma profile ************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   It's been more than a year
*   since I last saw Franziska
*   myself.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   But it seems that she's been
*   dying to see you again.
*
* Phoenix:
*   She really said that...?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I believe she wants to eat you
*   for breakfast! Or to put it
*   another way, whip you silly.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Literally and metaphorically.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Oh.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Go on, let her have her way!
*   It would make for a great
*   anecdote about my trip!
*
* Phoenix:
*   Forget it, Edgeworth!
*
********************************************

*** Miles Edgeworth profile ****************
*
* Edgeworth:
*   If you want to know how to
*   run the perfect trial, there's
*   a lot to study and learn.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Oh, is that what you're
*   studying about right now?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I've sat at the prosecutor's
*   bench for trials in five
*   different countries now.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   The first thing you must do is
*   gain complete mastery of the
*   language. It's quite a task.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (I'd never get anywhere then!
*   It's taken me a lifetime to
*   sort of master one language!)
*
********************************************

*** Anything else **************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   What do you think about this,
*   Edgeworth?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   Sorry, Wright...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   You're a defense attorney,
*   and I'm a prosecutor.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   It wouldn't be right for us to
*   discuss things so intimately.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (But you were acting for the
*   defense in the trial today!)
*
********************************************

MOVE TO: "Inner Temple Gate"

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

February 9
Inner Temple Gate

Phoenix:
  (I'm finally getting to the
  bottom of this case.)

Phoenix:
  (I can count on Iris to break
  those locks, so I should try
  to gather more clues.)

Phoenix:
  (From Sister Bikini,
  Edgeworth, Gumshoe...)

Phoenix:
  (...and Pearls...)

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ The bridge +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   You can see Dusky Bridge from
+   here, and it feels like an
+   unusually long bridge to me.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess the gorge is too wide
+   to cross with a piece of rope
+   or wire.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   In other words, no one has
+   crossed it in either direction
+   since the night of the murder.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Which means that scene in the
+   Inner Temple's garden couldn't
+   have been set up by someone.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Metal hook +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That's an anchor for one of
+   the wires that used to hold
+   up the bridge.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess it must have snapped
+   during the fire.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Buddha statues +++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Look at all the Buddha statues
+   lined up along this path.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Looks like one of the cakes
+   someone left as an offering is
+   missing, though.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess Gumshoe couldn't
+   resist, the poor guy.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Incinerator ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There's something strange
+   about this incinerator.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I'm sure there was snow on it
+   the first time I saw it.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That, and the door's open.
+   Someone's been burning
+   something, that's for sure.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's a shame there isn't a
+   trace of what it was left
+   inside.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Yellow gate ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   On the other side of that
+   little gate is the garden.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Edgeworth is probably still
+   in there, crying softly to
+   himself.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I guess we better hug it out
+   and talk about what he's
+   uncovered so far.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Wooden log on left with sign +++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I can't read it very well, but
+   I think that sign says, "Inner
+   Temple" on it.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Or maybe it says, "Training
+   Hall".
+
+ Phoenix:
+   No. Maybe it's not that at
+   all. Maybe it says, "The
+   Bridge of Dawn".
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...I really should get back to
+   work!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The gate +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Maya has got to be inside
+   the Sacred Cavern.
+   She's just got to be.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I hate feeling so useless.
+   It's driving me nuts.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But I need to look for clues
+   so that I'm ready when we
+   finally get her out of there.
+

MOVE TO: "Suspension Bridge"

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

February 9
Dusky Bridge

Phoenix:
  It's weird that there's no one
  around all of a sudden.

Phoenix:
  It sure gets quiet up here in
  the mountains when you're all
  on your own.

Phoenix:
  Speaking of alone... I guess I
  should go check out the shack
  just down this path...

Phoenix:
  Maybe I'll find Larry there
  sulking again.

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

EXAMINE

+++ The bridge +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That thing looks like it's
+   ready to collapse... At least
+   more than it did before.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   According to Bikini, Eagle
+   Mountain is very prone to
+   earthquakes.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I had a feeling something bad
+   was going to happen, and sure
+   enough, it did.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Yup. Edgeworth definitely
+   couldn't live up here!

MOVE TO: "Main Gate"

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

February 9
Hazakura Temple
Main Gate

Phoenix:
  I wonder if Sister Bikini has
  gone back to the Main Hall
  already.

Phoenix:
  I haven't seen Gumshoe
  around for a while, either.

Phoenix:
  Maybe they're having a cup of
  tea together somewhere.

Phoenix:
  I bet Gumshoe is Sister
  Bikini's type.

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

EXAMINE
-------

+++ The gate +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   This is one impressive gate.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's pretty grand for
+   something that belongs to
+   a branch family of the clan.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I bet they make an exorbitant
+   amount of money here.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I mean, that whole Special
+   Course thing has got to be
+   good business!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Ack! Noooo!!
+   I'm starting to think
+   like Maya!
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The Main Hall ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   You can see the Main Hall
+   from here.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Sister Bikini should
+   be back by now.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   We were interrupted earlier by
+   the earthquake.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I think I should go pick up
+   our conversation where we
+   left off.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Bell tower +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's a quaint, little bell
+   tower.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I never would've thought
+   that something this horrible
+   was about to happen...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...when Iris rang the lights
+   out bell that night.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Snowmobile +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I wonder what this thing was
+   used for on the night of the
+   murder...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   There is only one key to this
+   snowmobile, and Iris is the
+   one who had it.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   So I have to wonder if it was
+   her...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...But she says she never left
+   Hazakura Temple that night.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MOVE TO: "Main Hall"

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

February 9
Hazakura Temple
Main Hall

Phoenix:
  Looks like Sister Bikini is
  not here.

Phoenix:
  She must be sorting things out
  after the quake. Must be hard
  on her with her bad back.

Phoenix:
  There are a few things I
  really need to discuss with
  her.

Phoenix:
  Guess I'll drop by again
  later and see if she's
  around.

MOVE TO: "Heavenly Hall"

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

February 9
Heavenly Hall

Pearl:
  Oh! Mr. Nick!

Phoenix:
  Pearls!
  What are you doing here?

Pearl:
  N-Nothing...
  What about Mystic Maya!?
  Is she alright!?

Phoenix:
  Um... Well... We don't know
  yet.

Pearl:
  Oh... I see...

Butz:
  Hey!
  What do you think you're
  doing here, Nick!?

Phoenix:
  Larry...

Butz:
  This is the losers' shack,
  where losers get together to
  lose themselves!

Phoenix:
  This is the what...?

Butz:
  Hey, we find comfort in each
  other's failures, OK? You
  got a problem with that?

Pearl:
  Look, Mr. Nick. Mr. Laurice
  did a picture of me!

Phoenix:
  That's, um... great, Pearls.

Butz:
  We're going to gather
  firewood now.

Butz:
  We'll be cooking some
  half-rotten potatoes over
  a miserable little camp fire.

Butz:
  So stay out of our way!

Phoenix:
  (I don't believe this... Why
  can't he try getting fired up
  over becoming a better man?)

Butz:
  No one believes a word I say
  anymore.

Butz:
  Listen to me, Pearl. You don't
  wanna trust this kind of guy,
  OK? He'll only let you down!

Pearl:
  ...
  Oh, Mystic Maya...

MOVE TO: "Main Hall"

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

February 9
Hazakura Temple
Main Hall

Bikini:
  Well!? What's the damage!?
  How is the Sacred Cavern!?

Phoenix:
  It looks like it survived.
  But we have a bigger
  problem now.

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

Phoenix:
  (I told Sister Bikini all
  about it...)

Phoenix:
  (About the five locks that
  were stopping us from getting
  inside the Sacred Cavern.)

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

Bikini:
  ...

Bikini:
  But who... who could've
  done that...?

Bikini:
  The only people who know how
  to set those trick locks are
  those of the Kurain Tradition.

Phoenix:
  We have Iris at the Sacred
  Cavern, trying her best to
  open them for us right now.

Phoenix:
  Actually, there's something
  I've been meaning to talk with
  you about, Sister Bikini.

Bikini:
  Oh, yes. We were in the middle
  of a chat, weren't we?

Phoenix:
  Yes. You were telling me how
  the Master of Kurain
  disappeared 17 years ago.

Phoenix:
  I want to know why Misty
  Fey suddenly appeared at
  this temple.

Bikini:
  It was about a week ago when
  Mystic Elise... No, I mean
  Mystic Misty, arrived.

Bikini:
  After she showed me the
  talisman that proved she was
  the Master, she said...

Bikini:
  "Someone is trying to destroy
  the Kurain Tradition's main
  family line."

Bikini:
  "I am here to put a stop to
  them."

Phoenix:
  Someone was trying to
  destroy the main family line?

Bikini:
  There is only one heir to the
  title of "Master" at any time,
  and it's usually the eldest.

Bikini:
  That child becomes the new
  Master of Kurain, and her
  daughters, the main family.

Bikini:
  All other mediums become
  branch family members, with no
  hope of controlling the clan.

Bikini:
  That's why nothing has changed
  throughout the history of the
  clan...

Bikini:
  Branch families always have
  and always will plot to erase
  those of the main family line.

Phoenix:
  ...!

Phoenix:
  (Is the power of the Master
  worth this much bloodshed...?)

>
> Phoenix:
>   (And the medium who performed

PRESENT (TO BIKINI)

*** Hanging Scroll *************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   Um, would you mind taking a
*   look at this, Sister Bikini?
*
* Bikini:
*   Aaaah!
*
* Bikini:
*   Our scroll! Our precious
*   scroll! What on earth have you
*   done to it!?
*
* Phoenix:
*   No, no! It wasn't me!
*   I swear!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (But who did this, and why
*   would anyone want to cover
*   this thing in gravy?)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (More importantly, does this
*   have anything to do with the
*   case...?)
*
********************************************

*** Maya Fey profile ***********************
*
* Bikini:
*   So... This young lady is the
*   new Master...
*
* Phoenix:
*   That's right. Maya Fey.
*
* Bikini:
*   Oh dear, oh dear...
*   If I'd known who she was...
*
* Bikini:
*   I would've prepared a feast,
*   not a boring old pot roast
*   and some gravy!
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...
*
* Phoenix:
*   Once we get her out, you can
*   give her all the feasts you
*   want.
*
* Bikini:
*   Of course! You just make sure
*   you get her out, alright?
*
* Bikini:
*   She's the Master!
*   You just have to rescue her!
*
********************************************

*** Pearl Fey profile **********************
*
* Bikini:
*   Ah... This poor little girl...
*
* Phoenix:
*   (First I lost Maya, and now
*   Pearls...)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (How much more pain is this
*   case going to cause me!?)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Urgh... Not to mention this
*   fever is giving me a killer
*   migraine...)
*
********************************************

*** Elise Deauxnim profile *****************
*
* Bikini:
*   How... How can I ever
*   make up for this...?
*
* Phoenix:
*   Make up for what?
*
* Bikini:
*   For allowing harm to come to
*   such an important person!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Sister Bikini must feel
*   really responsible for
*   what happened...)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Ms. Deauxnim was the Master
*   after all...)
*
********************************************

*** Morgan Fey profile *********************
*
* Bikini:
*   When I think about it, I do
*   kind of feel sorry for Mystic
*   Morgan.
*
* Bikini:
*   It wasn't her fault that her
*   sister was a more powerful
*   spirit medium.
*
* Bikini:
*   Mystic Morgan just couldn't
*   compete with her sister.
*
* Bikini:
*   It must have been really
*   tough on her...
*
* Phoenix:
*   Even so...
*
* Phoenix:
*   That doesn't excuse all the
*   things she did.
*
* Bikini:
*   ...
*
* Bikini:
*   No... Of course not.
*
********************************************

*** ?????? profile *************************
*
* Bikini:
*   Iris had a twin sister...
*
* Bikini:
*   That's really all I know about
*   her.
*
* Bikini:
*   That and the fact that she
*   was taken away from her mother
*   by her jeweler father.
*
* Bikini:
*   I don't have any idea where
*   she is or what she's doing
*   now.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (I could tell her...)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (But she'd probably have a
*   coronary and a half...)

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

*AFTER TALKING TO BIKINI*

Phoenix:
  ...
  Thank you very much.

Phoenix:
  You've helped clear up a lot
  of details.

Phoenix:
  Pearls had two older sisters,
  huh...

Bikini:
  Yes, that's right...

Bikini:
  No doubt it was all because of
  Mystic Morgan's anger towards
  the main family...

Phoenix:
  Anger? What do you mean?

Bikini:
  Her twin daughters were taken
  from her by her jeweler
  husband.

Bikini:
  But even that couldn't destroy
  her dream that a child of hers
  would one day lead the clan.

Phoenix:
  (That's why she had Pearls?)

Bikini:
  It seems that the incident
  here was a result of Mystic
  Morgan's anger.

Bikini:
  It was able to break free of
  the bars that confine her.

Phoenix:
  (So Iris has a twin sister...)

Phoenix:
  (The plot thickens...)

Phoenix:
  (But this information will be
  useless unless I can flesh it
  out a bit.)

Phoenix:
  (I need to ask more questions,
  and get some more info!)

MOVE TO: "Courtyard"

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

February 9
Hazakura Temple
Courtyard

? ? ?:
  ............

Phoenix:
  (Sounds like someone's happy.
  What tune is that they're
  humming...?)

Gumshoe:
  */No motive, no crime. No
  motive, no crime. Sing it with
  me - No motive, no crime!*/

Gumshoe:
  */...I remember, when we use
  to search... in the Channeling
  Room in Kurain...*/

Gumshoe:
  Whoop! I love my job!

Gumshoe:
  Who cares if the clues I
  find are no good?

Gumshoe:
  That's not what
  investigating's all about!

Gumshoe:
  The investigator investigates
  for the love of investigating!
  It's a passion!

Gumshoe:
  */Good cases we have, good
  cases we've lost...
  Along the way...*/

Phoenix:
  (...I would have never guessed
  that Gumshoe was into reggae.)

Gumshoe:
  */Every case is gonna be air
  tight... Every case is gonna
  be air tight...*/

Gumshoe:
  Hey, pal.

Phoenix:
  Huh? Who, me?

Gumshoe:
  How long have you been there?

Phoenix:
  ...
  I just got here.

Gumshoe:
  ...Oh, OK.

Phoenix:
  So what are you up to,
  Detective?

Gumshoe:
  I'm investigating, pal.

Gumshoe:
  I made a promise to
  Mr. Edgeworth.

Gumshoe:
  I promised I would find the
  real murder weapon.

Phoenix:
  (The real murder weapon...)

Gumshoe:
  That barbed sword thing turned
  out to be a false lead, right?

Gumshoe:
  I'm giving it my best shot
  here, but I still haven't
  turned up any clues.

Gumshoe:
  I just found these weird
  scraps of paper. It looks like
  a letter or something.

Gumshoe:
  It doesn't seem to have
  anything to do with the
  case, though...

Phoenix:
  (A letter?)

PRESENT (TO GUMSHOE)

*** Hanging Scroll *************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   Do you know anything about
*   this scroll, Detective?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Well, I know it smells great!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah, this is just the kind of
*   weather for some steaming
*   mashed potatoes and gravy.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh! And weenies!
*   Mashed potatoes with gravy
*   and weenies!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Potatoes and weenies are the
*   two greatest foods invented by
*   man. A dream combination!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Although, I can't afford to
*   try them together yet.
*   It's an unfulfilled dream...
*
* Phoenix:
*   Um... I was hoping you'd have
*   more to say about the scroll
*   and less about the gravy...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh, sorry. Nah, I can't tell
*   you much about that scroll,
*   pal.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (...Why do I bother anymore?)
*
********************************************

*** Photo of Elise or Elise Deauxnim profile ***
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She sure was a mysterious
*   person.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Her real name, her past...
*   It's all a complete mystery.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Not quite. She was Maya's
*   mother.)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (But Gumshoe doesn't know
*   that yet...)
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Just like every other case,
*   huh? Always a mystery!
*
********************************************

*** Victim's Staff *************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   That staff belonged to the
*   victim.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Yeah, and apart from the
*   crystal missing from the top,
*   there's nothing wrong with it.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh, I just remembered
*   something important! This
*   is just between us, OK?
*
* Phoenix:
*   O-OK... What is it?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I've never told anyone this
*   before... It's a secret.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I...
*   I actually wanted to be a
*   wizard when I was a kid.
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*
* Phoenix:
*   Is that it?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah, that's it.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Hmm... How did the crystal
*   sphere get separated from
*   the staff?)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (And what was it doing near
*   the foot of Dusky Bridge...?)
*
********************************************

*** Larry's Sketch *************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   It was like a circus today
*   in court.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   All thanks to this little
*   sketch.
*
* von Karma:
*   You want my advice?
*   You should ignore it, pal.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Look, I know Larry's a bit
*   out there.
*
* Phoenix:
*   But he wouldn't just draw
*   something like this as a
*   joke.
*
* von Karma:
*   Then I guess I should start
*   getting hyped for tomorrow's
*   trial.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Huh?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Seeing you trying to explain
*   that thing...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I wouldn't miss it for the
*   world, pal!
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Maybe he's right. Maybe I
*   should just ignore this
*   useless piece of graffiti.)

*** Crystal Sphere *************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   This was found close to Dusky
*   Bridge, wasn't it?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   That's what that artist guy
*   said, yeah.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Right after the defendant flew
*   over the burning bridge!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   According to his testimony,
*   she dropped it when she landed
*   on the other side.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (But this crystal didn't
*   belong to Iris.)
*
* Gumshoe:
*   There are traces of blood
*   on it too, you know, pal.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (The real question is what was
*   it doing near the foot of
*   Dusky Bridge...?)
*
********************************************

*** Pearl Fey profile **********************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   The girl was trapped over at
*   the Inner Temple since the
*   night of the murder.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Did she say anything to you
*   about Maya?
*
* Phoenix:
*   She wouldn't tell me...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She's not gonna tell me
*   something if she wouldn't even
*   speak to you, pal.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She was real upset. She
*   wouldn't stop crying.
*
********************************************

*** Godot profile **************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   That guy's got more mysteries
*   than a Choose Your Own
*   Escapade book, pal.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Yeah, I know.
*   Trust me.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I can't believe he skipped the
*   trial like that, without even
*   getting permission.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   He'd have been fired for sure
*   if he worked for a normal
*   company.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Do you know where he is now?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Nah. But I bet he's walking
*   around somewhere with a mug
*   of coffee in one hand.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Hmm, I should've figured...)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (It looks like Gumshoe doesn't
*   know about Godot's physical
*   condition...)
*
* --------------------------------------------
*
* Godot:
*   Of course, being extradited
*   from Hell is a tedious
*   affair.
*
* Godot:
*   The meticulous regeneration
*   and adjustment of all your
*   internal organs is...
*
* Godot:
*   Well... Let's just say modern
*   medicine allows us all to live
*   to a ripe old age.
*
* Godot:
*   Even someone like me.
*
* --------------------------------------------
*
* Phoenix:
*   (He had a good reason for
*   missing the trial.)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (So why didn't he tell
*   anyone about it?)

*   Maggey says she's gonna buy
*   me a new coat!
*
* Phoenix:
*   Really? That's great!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah. I think it's to say
*   thanks for helping her out
*   during that last case!

*   I can finally chuck out this

* Gumshoe:
*   She's a sweet old lady.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She doesn't look like the

*
* Phoenix:
*   But there was a problem with
*   her testimony, wasn't there?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah, but I don't think it

*
* Gumshoe:
*   She was just trying to say the

*   The clues we found today

*
* Gumshoe:
*   I can't see how Iris could've

*
* Phoenix:
*   What clues are you talking
*   about?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I dunno if I should be telling

*
* Gumshoe:
*   The fact that the Inner Temple
*   Garden was the crime scene.
*   And... that bloody writing.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   However you look at it, Maya
*   Fey's the only person who...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Hey! Quit giving me that evil
*   stare, would you? You look
*   just like Mr. Edgeworth.
*
* Phoenix:
*   It wasn't Maya!
*   There is no way it could've
*   been her!
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I knew I shouldn't have said
*   anything.

*** Franziska von Karma profile ************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Hey, speaking of
*   Ms. von Karma, what's she
*   up to...?
*
* Phoenix:
*   She's keeping an eye on Iris
*   at the Inner Temple.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh, really!?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Phew! I can relax at last;
*   now that you've lost her.
*
* Phoenix:
*   She has a real thing for
*   hitting you with that whip
*   of hers, huh?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah, but I'm kinda getting
*   used to it... which scares
*   me a lot.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh! So this one time, she
*   forgot her whip at home
*   or something...
*
* Phoenix:
*   And...? Tell me you were able
*   to have a violence-free day.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Nah. She slapped me instead.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I prefer the whip. Getting
*   slapped all day makes you
*   look like such a loser.
*
* Phoenix:
*   (And being whipped doesn't?)
*
********************************************

*** Miles Edgeworth profile ****************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I haven't seen Mr. Edgeworth
*   for about a year. Talk about
*   a long time!
*
* Phoenix:
*   Do you know why he moved
*   overseas?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I don't know. Probably to look
*   cool.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Huh?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   There's a lot of weight
*   attached to doing research
*   overseas, you know.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Once I've done my stint in
*   Paris, you'll have to call me
*   Monsieur Gumchaussure.
*
* Phoenix:
*   ...
*
* Phoenix:
*   (People really don't get
*   Edgeworth, do they?)
*
********************************************

*** Morgan Fey profile *********************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I've seen this lady someplace
*   before.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ............
*   Isn't she that jaw-droppingly
*   large strawberry desert woman?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh, yeah! She's Pearl Fey's
*   mother, right?
*
* Phoenix:
*   That's right.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She was involved in that
*   incident in Kurain Village
*   last year, wasn't she?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*   Hey!
*   She was the one who did it!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (Why doesn't he think his
*   whole thought through
*   BEFORE opening his mouth!?)
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah, that was one ugly case,
*   huh, pal?
*
* Phoenix:
*   ("Was"?
*   I don't know...)
*
* Phoenix:
*   (The more we look at this
*   case, the more I feel like
*   that one never ended...)
*
* Gumshoe:
*   She's locked up safe in
*   solitary confinement at the
*   detention center, though...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   At least we can rule her
*   out of this case!
*
********************************************

*** Anything else **************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   What about this, Detective
*   Gumshoe? Any thoughts?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Yeah... Well...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   It's pretty chilly today, huh?
*   My brain doesn't work properly
*   in the cold.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Perhaps we'll just have to
*   wait until Summer when it's
*   warmer?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh, no. My brain doesn't work
*   properly in the heat.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I'm kinda weak in the head.

METAL DETECTOR MODE
-------------------

+++ Skis +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   It's just a pair of skis.
+   Nothing useful for our
+   case here.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I'm actually pretty good on
+   skis you know, pal.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I just love to fly down the
+   slopes with my coat fluttering
+   in the wind!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Really? I had no idea.
+   How good are you, then?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Well...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I'm better on skis than I am
+   on skates. But not as good
+   as when I'm on a snowboard.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (That's a pretty detailed
+   answer.)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Oh! But you know what I'm
+   best at? Making mashed
+   potatoes and gravy.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (The guy's losing it. Must be
+   the altitude. We'd better get
+   back to the investigation...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Sled +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That's odd. This sled's made
+   of plastic...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It says, "Bikini #1" on the
+   side...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Maybe there's something
+   under it...)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Hey, what's this?
+   A-A badge...?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Ah-haaaaaa!
+   I've been hunting high and low
+   for that!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   I-It's yours, Detective?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   That thing's priceless to a
+   guy like me, pal. A cop can't
+   be a cop without his badge!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I'm sure glad I put that
+   dime in there now.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   How did you manage to drop
+   your badge here, of all
+   places!?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I know! I bet it happened
+   this morning.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I was playing around with the
+   sled and...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Stop right there.
+   I don't need to hear any more.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Step-ladder ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Look, a ladder!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That's a "step"-ladder.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   What's the difference?
+   Looks like a normal ladder to
+   me, pal.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Surely everyone knows the
+   difference... I mean, they're
+   pretty ordinary objects...)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I've met plenty of guys like
+   you, always picking on the
+   smallest details.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   The vegetable store guy near
+   my place does it all the time.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   He even corrects me when I ask
+   for a head of lettuce. "That's
+   a cabbage," he says.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I'm telling you, they're the
+   exact same thing!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   No they're not! They're
+   completely different!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   You have to plant both of them
+   firmly in the ground before
+   they can grow, don't you?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Listen. You gotta take a step
+   back and look at the bigger
+   picture sometimes.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Otherwise you could miss a
+   really important clue. That's
+   advice from a pro, pal!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (...The last person I need
+   advice from is this guy in
+   front of me.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Snow on the left side of the sled ++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   This must be an old pan handle
+   or something.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   H-How do you know that!?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Huh, what?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   That was my nickname in junior
+   high.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   What, "pan handle"?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I didn't have much money
+   back then, pal.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I used to bum stuff off the
+   other kids sometimes, so they
+   called me "Panhandler".
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   "Panhandler", huh?
+   I can see that.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Thinking back, it's actually
+   kind of a nice memory now.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Snow near the one above ++++++++++++++++
+   (there is a black dot)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   This looks like... a wallet?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Ah-haaaa!
+   That's where it's been!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Is it yours, Detective?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I'm always dropping it, so I
+   put a bell on it.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But you still dropped it
+   anyway...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah, but now I found it
+   again, pal.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...Your wallet is completely
+   empty.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Well, I drop it all the time,
+   so I don't put money in it
+   anymore.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   ...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Then how come the metal
+   detector picked it up...?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Must be because of the bell,
+   I guess.
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Snow just below Ami Fey statue +++++++++
+   (the fourth step from the statue)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Hey, I found a dollar coin.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Huh? M-Money!? If you find
+   money, you have to turn it in
+   to the police. Or a detective.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   If the owner doesn't come
+   forward within six months,
+   you get to keep 10 percent!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   The other ninety percent goes
+   to m... I mean, to the Police
+   Department.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   D-Don't get so close to me,
+   Detective. Give me some space,
+   will you!?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Here's the coin.
+   Happy?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...
+   I definitely made the right
+   decision becoming a detective.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Yikes... Talk about a serious
+   case of denial...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Snow beside the one above ++++++++++++++
+   (on the left side)
+
+ Phoenix:
+   What's this...?
+   A pen?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Hey! I've been looking all
+   over for that, pal!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Huh? It's yours?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah. My old man gave it to
+   me when I qualified as a
+   detective.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   He told me it'd be good for
+   sticking in suspects' faces.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   That makes you detectives
+   sound really nasty.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It's my dream to stick it in
+   your face one day, Wright!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Then don't go losing it!)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Ami Fey statue +++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   That Shichishito next to the
+   golden statue wasn't the real
+   murder weapon, pal.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Yeah, I know.
+   I just thought I'd check it
+   again anyway.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Oh, yeah! That reminds me!
+   Do you know about that sword?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It's supposed to represent the
+   multiple branches that life
+   can take, all ending as one.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Yes. I heard something about
+   that.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   You know what I think
+   about sometimes?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   What kind of life I'd be
+   leading had I not joined
+   the Homicide Division.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   You think about that kind of
+   stuff, Detective?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Of course I do.
+   I think about it a lot.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Me as a traffic cop.
+   Me as a detention officer.
+   Me as the Blue Badger...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (...There's something to be
+   said about the humor value of
+   Gumshoe as the Blue Badger.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Snow near the front lantern's fences +++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Looks like there's something
+   round buried in the ground
+   here...)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Don't touch that, pal!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Huh? What is it?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It's a trap! People set them
+   out to catch us detectives.
+   They're real nasty.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   A trap... for detectives?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   You mean like those fierce
+   traps with sharp teeth that
+   are supposed to snag your leg?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah! Those!
+   I got my finger caught in
+   one of those once.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Y-Your finger?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   There was this bit of cheese,
+   and it looked so tasty. I
+   reached out, and then... bam!
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (...I'm not sure I know how
+   to respond to a story as
+   stupidly pitiful as that.)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ The staff on the snow ++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   This is Ms. Deauxnim's staff,
+   isn't it?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Scientifically speaking,
+   they're usually made of wood.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   But the detector is reacting
+   to it.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Yeah, but however you look at
+   it, the thing's made of wood,
+   alright?
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   I don't bother investigating
+   anything unless it looks like
+   it might be metallic.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Isn't the whole point of a
+   metal detector to find metal
+   where you can't see it?)
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   It's weird that this thing is
+   causing a racket...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Here, let me take a look
+   at it.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Hey! Hands off!
+   Examining evidence is a job
+   for the...
+
+ *crack*
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Ack! The top is coming off!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Look what you've done! You've
+   damaged a really important
+   piece of evidence.
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Aaaaaaaaah!
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Th-That's a...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   A... A sword...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Inside the staff...
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Is this...
+   Could it be...
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   ...The murder weapon!?
+
+ CONTINUE
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++ Anywhere else ++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+
+ Phoenix:
+   Hmm... It doesn't look like
+   there's anything here.
+
+ Gumshoe:
+   Hey, pal! You've gotta watch
+   the CHECK gauge and wait
+   for it to flash, OK!?
+
+ Phoenix:
+   (Alright, already...
+   I'm not exactly a wiz at
+   machinery, you know...)
+
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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

*AFTER TALKING TO GUMSHOE*

Gumshoe:
  OK, I'm gonna run over to
  forensics.

Gumshoe:
  There's gotta be some traces
  of blood left, even if most of
  it has been wiped off.

Gumshoe:
  See you later, pal!

Gumshoe:
  */Every case is gonna be air
  tight... Every case is gonna
  be air tight...*/

Phoenix:
  *HOLD IT!*

Phoenix:
  Wait up, Detective!

Gumshoe:
  Huh? What is it, pal?
  I'm a pretty busy guy right
  now, you know.

Phoenix:
  You're going to get that
  staff analyzed, right?

Phoenix:
  Would you mind holding off
  for just a while?

Gumshoe:
  Huh? What are you talking
  about, pal!?

Phoenix:
  Please!

Phoenix:
  Just until we find Maya...

Gumshoe:
  Maya? What's this got to
  do with her?

Phoenix:
  I don't know, but I'm starting
  to get a really bad feeling in
  the pit of my stomach.

Gumshoe:
  Oh?
  How so?

Phoenix:
  Look, Maya's trapped
  inside the Sacred Cavern
  right now and...

Phoenix:
  Well, we don't even know if
  she's OK or not...

Phoenix:
  The more evidence and
  testimony I hear, the more
  uneasy I feel.

Gumshoe:
  Y-You don't think...?

Gumshoe:
  Maya's been murd--

Phoenix:
  Please, Detective!
  Let's just wait until we can
  get inside the Sacred Cavern.

Gumshoe:
  You're... looking kinda
  viridian there...

Phoenix:
  ...

Gumshoe:
  OK, OK.
  Just stop it with that
  face, pal.

Gumshoe:
  One thing, though...

Gumshoe:
  This staff's secret trick...
  Let's keep it between you
  and me, alright?

Gumshoe:
  If it gets out that we knew
  about it and didn't say
  anything, we're finished.

Phoenix:
  ...I understand.

Gumshoe:
  This is just a regular, run-
  of-the-mill staff, you got it?

Gumshoe:
  ...OK, now you take good care
  of it, pal.

Phoenix:
  Thank you, Detective.

Gumshoe:
  ...

Gumshoe:
  Don't worry... She'll be fine.

Phoenix:
  Gumshoe...

Gumshoe:
  You know, there's a place at
  the base of this mountain that
  has some really good pasta.

Gumshoe:
  How about I take you there
  when you find Maya, huh, pal?

Phoenix:
  Sure... Thanks...

*Victim's Staff received from
Detective Gumshoe for safe-
keeping.*

Phoenix:
  (I can't help but wonder,
  though...)

Phoenix:
  (What was Elise Deauxnim doing
  with a staff like this in the
  first place...?)

PRESENT (TO GUMSHOE)

*** Victim's Staff *************************
*
* Gumshoe:
*   I still can't believe it, pal!
*   I'd never have guessed there
*   was a sword in that thing.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Sure, there isn't any blood
*   left on it, but...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...there's a good chance this
*   is the murder weapon, pal!
*
* Phoenix:
*   But this is Ms. Deauxnim's
*   staff, right?
*
* Phoenix:
*   That would mean she was killed
*   with her own weapon.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*   I guess so.
*
* Phoenix:
*   And there's something else
*   that's bothering me, too.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Oh? What's that, pal?
*
* Phoenix:
*   Ms. Deauxnim was an author and
*   an illustrator, right?
*
* Phoenix:
*   So what was she doing carrying
*   a sword around with her?
*
* Gumshoe:
*   ...
*
* Gumshoe:
*   That's a good question.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   And there's gotta be a good
*   answer to it, I guess.
*
* Gumshoe:
*   Good luck finding it, pal!
*
* Phoenix:
*   (...I'm beginning to see why
*   he receives the salary he
*   does.)

MOVE TO: "Heavenly Hall"

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

February 9
Heavenly Hall

Phoenix:
  Hmm... I was expecting Larry
  and Pearls to be here.

Phoenix:
  I guess they must've gone
  to collect firewood.

Phoenix:
  I suppose I'll have to check
  back later.

MOVE TO: "Garden"

PRESENT (TO EDGEWORTH)
----------------------

*** ?????? profile *************************
*
* Phoenix:
*   Hey, Edgeworth...
*
* Phoenix:
*   Did you know that Iris had
*   a twin sister...?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   WHAT!?
*   A-A twin...?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   You can't be serious!
*
* Phoenix:
*   Sister Bikini told me.
*   But...
*
* Phoenix:
*   The problem is, she didn't
*   know the name of this twin.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   There was nothing about Iris
*   having a sister in the files
*   I checked.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Well, Iris was taken in by the
*   temple when she was really
*   young.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Apparently her sister was
*   raised by her father. A
*   jeweler, I think.
*
* Edgeworth:
*   A jeweler!?
*
* Edgeworth:
*   ...
*   Wright, I...
*
* Edgeworth:
*   I might just know who this
*   twin sister of hers is.
*
* Phoenix:
*   I had a feeling you'd say
*   that.
*
* Phoenix:
*   Let me guess...
*
* Phoenix:
*   Her name is Dahlia Hawthorne,
*   right?
*
* Edgeworth:

*AFTER TALKING TO EDGEWORTH*

Phoenix:
  It seems you're not aware of
  one other connection yet,
  Edgeworth.

Edgeworth:
  And what is that?

Phoenix:
  It's about Iris and Dahlia
  Hawthorne's mother.

Edgeworth:
  What's their mother got to do
  with any of this?

Phoenix:
  She's Morgan Fey.

Phoenix:
  A spirit medium from a branch
  family of the Kurain
  Channeling Technique.

Edgeworth:
  ...
  Did you say, "Kurain
  Channeling Technique"...?

Phoenix:
  D-Do you know something
  about it?

Edgeworth:
  Oh, yes. I know it's connected
  with that fraudulent spirit
  medium!

Phoenix:
  (Fraudulent...?)

Edgeworth:
  I was involved in another
  nightmare, 17 years ago.

Edgeworth:
  I was caught up in the middle
  of a murder investigation. The
  police didn't have any leads.

Edgeworth:
  They were stumped...
  And that's when they called
  her in.

Edgeworth:
  She was a very famous spirit
  medium and the "Master"
  of her channeling school.

Edgeworth:
  But you know what happened?

Edgeworth:
  As a result of her efforts, an
  innocent man was accused of
  murder!

Edgeworth:
  She and her powers!
  They were all fraudulent!

Phoenix:
  ...Edgeworth...

Edgeworth:
  Go to the Police Records Room.
  It's all in there.

Edgeworth:
  All you have to do is check
  the DL-6 Incident case file
  and you'll know!

Phoenix:
  (Of course... How could I
  forget...)

Phoenix:
  (Edgeworth was the victim in
  that case.)

Phoenix:
  Edgeworth...
  You'll understand someday...

Phoenix:
  And then, you'll see that the
  Kurain Channeling Technique is
  real...

-- The Night of the Crime --

Phoenix:
  I think it's time you told the
  truth about what you were
  doing on that night.

Iris:
  ...

Phoenix:
  You said you were in your room
  at Hazakura Temple the entire
  time.

Phoenix:
  Do you still claim that to be
  the truth?

Iris:
  Yes...
  That's where I was.

Phoenix:
  Iris... I believe you're
  innocent.

Phoenix:
  That's why I want to believe
  what you're telling me, too.
  But I can't.

Phoenix:
  Because this person saw you
  somewhere else on the night
  of the murder!

x Iris:

x   I can't.
x

*Present Bikini profile*

Phoenix:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Phoenix:
  I'm talking about
  Sister Bikini, of course.

Iris:
  Sister Bikini...

Phoenix:
  Her testimony in court today
  was very clear.

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

Bikini:
  That night I was helping an
  acolyte with her training in
  the Inner Temple. But...

Bikini:
  Well, as you can see, my
  back likes to act up.
  Violently.

Bikini:
  So, I left Iris to help the
  acolyte, and returned to
  Hazakura Temple.

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

Phoenix:
  Sister Bikini didn't just
  see you, she spoke with you.

Phoenix:
  You two talked about Maya's
  training that night.

Phoenix:
  So you see, Iris...

Phoenix:
  ...you were there at the Inner
  Temple on the night of the
  murder!

Iris:
  That's... very impressive,
  Mr. Wright.

*1 LOCK BROKEN*

Iris:
  The acolyte's actual training
  was due to start after 10
  o'clock that night.

Iris:
  I left the Main Hall early, so
  I wouldn't be late.

Phoenix:
  What time was that?

Iris:
  Let me see...

Iris:
  It takes about 20 minutes to
  walk between the Main Hall
  and the Inner Temple.

Iris:
  So, I would've left at about
  9:40 PM, I think.

Phoenix:
  ...

Phoenix:
  I'm sorry, Iris, but lying
  just doesn't suit you.

Iris:
  Huh?

Phoenix:
  Now, you say you left the Main
  Hall at 9:40 PM, but what you
  say doesn't add up with this!

xxx Present something wrong xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
x
x Phoenix:
x   *TAKE THAT!*
x

x   I'm sorry, Mr. Wright...
x
x Iris:
x   But mistakes just don't suit
x   you.
x
x Phoenix:
x   Huh?
x
x Iris:
x   I had hoped you would get
x   at least this much correct.
x
x Iris:
x   I hate seeing you mess up and
x   getting all disappointed.
x
x Phoenix:
x   (Nngh... I didn't know she
x   could be so harsh...)
x
x Phoenix:
x   Iris, what are you trying to
x   hide...?
x
x Iris:

x
x Phoenix:
x   The more you lie about it, the
x   more I know it's got to be
x   something really important.

*Present Iris's Hood or Iris's Testimony*

Phoenix:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Phoenix:
  You yourself testified to the
  contrary, don't you remember?

Phoenix:
  You said you rang the lights
  out bell at 10 o'clock that
  night.

Iris:
  Ah!

Phoenix:
  Plus, only moments before you
  rang that bell...

Phoenix:
  ...you were seen at the Main
  Hall by the most reliable
  witness I have.

Iris:
  Who's that?

Phoenix:
  Me.

Iris:
  Mr. Wright...

Phoenix:
  We even spoke a little that
  evening.

Phoenix:
  That's when you gave me this.

Phoenix:
  Surely you haven't
  forgotten?

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  N-No... That's right.
  I remember...

*1 LOCK BROKEN*

Phoenix:
  And that brings us to another
  puzzling fact, Iris.

Phoenix:
  At 10 o'clock on the night of
  the murder...

Phoenix:
  ...you were seen in two
  different places at the
  same time!

Iris:
  ...

Phoenix:
  It's time you told me exactly
  what's been going on, Iris.

Phoenix:
  So far, I've managed to prove
  two things.

Phoenix:
  First, on the night of the
  incident, you were at the
  Inner Temple.

Phoenix:
  And second, at the exact
  same time, you were ringing
  the bell at Hazakura Temple!

Phoenix:
  There's only one possible
  explanation for this apparent
  impossibility!

xxx You were at Hazakura Temple. xxxxxxxxxxx
x               OR
xxx You were at the Inner Temple. xxxxxxxxxx
x
x Phoenix:
x   There is only one of you,
x   Iris.
x
x Phoenix:
x   You couldn't possibly have
x   been in two places at once.
x
x Phoenix:
x   That being the case, you
x   were probably really at...
x
x Iris:
x   Mr. Wright?
x
x Phoenix:
x   Yes? What is it?
x
x Iris:
x   That's what I wanted to ask
x   you.
x
x Iris:
x   What was that "probably" you
x   just came out with?
x
x Phoenix:
x   I, umm... Well...
x
x Phoenix:
x   The problem is, you spoke to
x   witnesses at both the Main
x   Hall and the Inner Temple.
x
x Phoenix:
x   It's kind of hard to disprove
x   either sighting, but...
x
x Iris:
x   That's no position for a
x   lawyer to find himself in,
x   is it?
x
x Phoenix:
x   N-No...
x   (She got me there!)
x
x Iris:
x   It seems to me like there just
x   isn't a solution to this
x   puzzle.
x
x Iris:
x   It's probably best if you just
x   forget the whole thing,
x   Mr. Wright.
x
x Phoenix:
x   ...
x
x Phoenix:
x   I'm sorry, Iris, but I can't
x   do that.

Phoenix:
  On the night of the incident,
  you were seen in two different
  places at the same time.

Phoenix:
  Which means, there must have
  been two of you.

Phoenix:
  I can't think of any other
  explanation, Iris.

Iris:
  B-But that's crazy!
  How could that be!?

Iris:
  There's only one of me!
  It's impossible!

Phoenix:
  Impossible?
  I wonder...

Phoenix:
  The way you're trembling
  certainly seems to suggest
  otherwise.

Iris:
  *gulp*

Iris:
  You're seriously trying to
  suggest there's more than one
  of me?

Iris:
  Then show me the evidence!

  there is more than one of me!

x

Phoenix:

Phoenix:
  I have a firm grasp of the

Phoenix:
  You have a sister, don't you?
  A twin sister, perhaps?

Iris:
  Ah!

Phoenix:
  That's right.
  Dahlia Hawthorne.
  A woman I know only too well.

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  I had no idea you knew of her.
  Very impressive, Mr. Wright.

Iris:
  But...
  She's no longer...

Phoenix:
  Yes, I know.

Phoenix:
  Her sentence was carried
  out recently, wasn't it...?

Iris:
  ...

Phoenix:
  I'm sorry.

Iris:
  Thank you.

Phoenix:
  There's no need to explain
  now, is there Iris?

Phoenix:
  This "second you" who was
  here at the temple on the
  night of the murder...

Phoenix:
  ...it was your twin sister,
  Dahlia Hawthorne!

Iris:
  B-But you just said it
  yourself a second ago!

Iris:
  My sister's dead!
  Have you forgotten that?

Phoenix:
  Have you forgotten this, Iris?

Phoenix:
  This is a channeling dojo,
  a training ground of the
  Kurain Channeling Technique.

Iris:
  ...!

Phoenix:
  That night...

Phoenix:
  ...someone channeled Dahlia's
  spirit. And you knew about it!

Phoenix:

  together...)

von Karma:
  ...I have asked her everything

von Karma:
  This incident...

von Karma:
  Everything related to it
  goes back to the history
  of the Fey clan.

Phoenix:
  ...That's what it looks like.

Phoenix:
  Iris... There's just one more
  thing I want you to tell me.

Iris:
  What is it...?

Phoenix:
  During the incident in which
  your sister, Dahlia Hawthorne,
  poisoned a lawyer...

Phoenix:
  ...she began relations with a
  certain college student
  in order to hide the evidence.

Phoenix:
  That college student...
  Have you heard anything
  about him...?

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  Well...
  I did hear one thing...

Iris:
  She said she hated his guts.

Phoenix:
  ...

Phoenix:
  ...I see.
  Thank you for your help.

Iris:
  You're welcome...

von Karma:
  Hurry up, Phoenix Wright!
  There is still much to
  investigate!

Iris:
  Leave these locks to me.
  I'll open them for you, I
  promise.

Phoenix:
  Thank you.

  I had to go instead.

Pearl:
  I was so worried, I... I had
  to go.

Pearl:
  I didn't know what to do with
  myself. I was so nervous.

Phoenix:
  (So Pearls never went to
  Ms. Deauxnim's room...)

Phoenix:
  (Because she was too worried
  about something or someone
  else...)

Phoenix:
  ...Pearls.

Phoenix:
  On the night of the murder,
  you went to this place, didn't
  you...?

*Present Maya Fey profile*

Phoenix:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Phoenix:
  It's obvious what you were so
  worried about, Pearls.

Phoenix:
  It was Maya, wasn't it?

Pearl:
  Ah!

Phoenix:
  You knew the training Maya
  was undertaking was dangerous.

Phoenix:
  After all, it was the Special
  Course.

Pearl:
  ...

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

Maya:
  I signed up for your
  "Special Course"!

Bikini:
  Well, my, my, my.
  Quite brave of you
  considering how cold it is!

Bikini:
  Young people can be so
  reckless with their health!

Bikini:
  Don't blame me if you become
  one with those you channel.
  Wa ha ha! Ho ho ho!

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

Phoenix:
  Sister Bikini scared you with
  what she said, didn't she?

Phoenix:
  And because it was you who
  introduced Hazakura Temple
  to Maya in the first place...

Phoenix:
  ...you felt responsible,
  didn't you?

Pearl:
  ...

Pearl:
  Thinking about what could
  happen to Mystic Maya made
  me more and more worried...

Pearl:
  I couldn't sit still at all.

Pearl:
  That's why I decided to go
  and find out how she was
  doing at the Inner Temple.

*1 LOCK BROKEN*

Phoenix:
  Then we're clear now that you
  went to the Inner Temple that
  night, Pearls.

Phoenix:
  What's not clear is what
  happened after that...

Pearl:
  Unngh...

Phoenix:
  About what time was it when
  you headed over to the Inner
  Temple?

Pearl:
  Um... It was probably around
  9:30 when I left the Main
  Hall.

Pearl:
  I heard the real training was
  supposed to start at 10.

Pearl:
  I wanted to get there before
  it started.

Pearl:
  But there was so much snow,
  so I didn't get there until
  after 10 o'clock.

Phoenix:
  Until after 10?
  How did you know what
  time it was?

Pearl:
  Because I heard the bell
  ringing for lights out.

Phoenix:
  (She heard the lights out
  bell...?)

Phoenix:
  The Hazakura Temple bell's
  pretty small though, isn't it?

Phoenix:
  You must have really good
  hearing.

Pearl:
  I... I was really trying to
  pick up the sound of that
  bell, that's all.

Pearl:
  I didn't want to miss it.
  That would be terrible.

Phoenix:
  (She was trying to hear the
  bell...?)

Phoenix:
  Tell me, Pearls...

Phoenix:
  Why were you so worried about
  hearing that bell?

Pearl:
  Huh!?
  Oh! I...

Phoenix:
  I think I know why. The reason
  you were so worried about that
  bell was because of this:

x   look a bit tired. The spikes
x   aren't looking so sharp.

x   of me, either.)

*Present Burnt Letter*

Phoenix:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Phoenix:
  You were given some
  instructions to follow for
  that night, weren't you?

Pearl:
  ...!

Phoenix:
  I presume you recognize these
  pieces of paper?

Pearl:
  Aaaaah!
  Wh-Where did you...?

Phoenix:
  In the incinerator at the
  Inner Temple.

Phoenix:
  Pearls...

Phoenix:
  You were following the
  instructions in this letter
  that night, weren't you?

Phoenix:
  That's why you couldn't
  afford to miss the sound of
  the lights out bell.

Pearl:
  I... I'm speechless, Mr. Nick!
  You're amazing!

*1 LOCK BROKEN*

Phoenix:
  These instructions that were
  found in the incinerator...

Phoenix:
  I believe they were written
  for you, Pearls.

Pearl:
  For me!? I... No...

Phoenix:
  As you can see, a large
  portion has been burnt...

Phoenix:
  But the last section is still
  fairly legible.

Phoenix:
  "As soon as you hear the
  lights out bell, you must
  channel her spirit."

Pearl:
  ...

Phoenix:
  Who was it, Pearls? Whose
  spirit were you supposed to
  be channeling?

Pearl:
  Nngh...

Phoenix:
  (Taking into account the
  author of the note, and their
  purpose for writing it...)

Phoenix:
  (...whose spirit would Pearls
  have been trying to channel?)

Phoenix:
  (Don't over-think it, Phoenix!
  It's pretty obvious who Pearls
  was supposed to channel...)

Phoenix:
  The person you were trying to
  channel that night, Pearls,
  was...

*Present Dahlia Hawthorne profile*

Phoenix:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Phoenix:
  It was Dahlia Hawthorne,
  wasn't it? That was the name
  that was in the letter.

Pearl:
  Ah!

*1 LOCK BROKEN*

Phoenix:
  (It's just as I suspected...)

Phoenix:
  (It wasn't Iris who Sister
  Bikini met at the Inner Temple
  that night...)

Phoenix:
  (It was Dahlia Hawthorne!)

Phoenix:
  Do you know anything about
  her, Pearls?

Phoenix:
  Do you know what kind of a
  woman Dahlia Hawthorne was?

Pearl:
  Umm... no.

Pearl:
  I've never heard of anyone
  by that name before reading
  those instructions...

Phoenix:
  (I thought so.
  Pearls doesn't have a clue.)

Phoenix:
  (She doesn't know that Dahlia
  is her sister...)

Phoenix:
  About the instructions in the
  letter I found, Pearls...

Phoenix:
  Who wrote them?

Pearl:
  Umm...

Phoenix:
  Whoever it was asked you to
  channel the spirit of someone
  you'd never heard of...

Phoenix:
  You must have quite a lot of
  respect for them.

Pearl:
  ...

Phoenix:
  After all, you followed their
  instructions without question.

Phoenix:
  So here's my next question.

Phoenix:
  Who wrote this set of
  instructions for you to
  follow...?

*Present Morgan Fey profile*

Phoenix:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Phoenix:
  Pearls...

Phoenix:
  I have to wonder about
  something...

Phoenix:
  You didn't have any idea what
  these instructions meant, did
  you?

Pearl:
  ...*ba-dump*

Phoenix:
  But you followed them to the
  letter regardless.

Phoenix:
  Why? Because it was your
  own mother who asked you.
  That's why.

Pearl:
  H-How did you...?

Phoenix:
  I figured it out.

Phoenix:
  The person who wrote you this
  letter was your own mother,
  Morgan Fey!

Pearl:
  Uh...

Pearl:
  Waaaaaaaah!

Phoenix:
  Alright, Pearls! It's time you
  started telling me the truth.

Pearl:
  M-M-Mr. N-Nick...
  I-I-I...

Phoenix:

  me? I don't like this...)

Pearl:
  D-D-Don't underestimate m-me,
  j-just because I'm a ch-child!

Phoenix:
  Huh?

Pearl:
  If you're trying to say I
  followed these instructions...

Pearl:
  I'd l-like to see some proof!

Phoenix:
  Whaaaat!?

Pearl:
  Because... I...
  I d-don't think y-y-you
  have a-a-any!

Phoenix:
  Nnnnnngh...

Phoenix:
  (She'd say anything rather
  than admit to carrying out
  those instructions...)

Phoenix:
  (I guess I'll have to produce
  some more evidence, then. One
  more thing should do it.)

Phoenix:
  ...Alright, Pearls.

Phoenix:
  We both know someone carried
  out these instructions on the
  night of the murder.

Phoenix:
  But you're right. There's no
  evidence that proves it was
  you.

Pearl:
  I-I-I knew it!

Phoenix:
  However...

Phoenix:
  I do know that whoever did
  it was a child.

Pearl:
  Huh?
  H-How do you know that!?

Phoenix:
  It couldn't have been an
  adult...

Phoenix:
  No adult would've made a
  simple mistake like that.

Pearl:
  A... simple mistake? What
  do you mean by that?

Phoenix:
  I'm sure you thought you
  were carefully following the
  instructions you'd been given.

Phoenix:
  But you misunderstood some
  of the words, and this is the
  evidence that proves it!

*Present Hanging Scroll*

Phoenix:

Phoenix:
  It was you who splattered
  gravy on this hanging scroll,
  wasn't it?

Pearl:
  Ah!

Pearl:
  Wh-What!?
  Wh-Why would I d-do
  something like...?

Phoenix:
  Do you remember what was
  written in that letter?

Phoenix:
  "Gravely roast the Master in
  the fires of Hades and bring
  our vengeance to fruition."

Phoenix:
  But you didn't know how to
  read the words "gravely" and
  "roast" among others, right?

Pearl:
  H-How do you know that!?

Phoenix:
  Remember the conversation
  you had with Ms. Deauxnim on
  the night of the murder...?

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

Elise:
  Perhaps we can read some
  books together.

Pearl:
  R-Really!?
  I'd love to!

Pearl:
  I, umm...
  I'm not very good at reading.

Elise:
  Ha ha ha.
  Well then, would you like to
  practice reading with me?

Pearl:
  Um, Ms. Elise?
  So, for example, how do you
  read this?

Elise:
  It says, "gravely"...
  That's kind of a tough word.

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

Phoenix:
  Sure, Ms. Deauxnim taught you
  how to read "gravely" and
  "roast".

Phoenix:
  But what she didn't teach
  you...

Phoenix:
  ...is what they meant!

Pearl:
  "Gravely" sounded like "gravy"
  to me, and the only "roast" I
  could think of was the food...

Phoenix:
  And that's why you did it...

Phoenix:
  That's why you covered the
  picture of the Master in gravy
  from that night's pot roast.

Pearl:
  ...
  To be honest...

Pearl:
  I did think it was a bit
  strange.

Pearl:
  I guess I really did get
  the wrong idea...

Phoenix:
  Just a tiny bit.

Pearl:
  I... I really am useless!

Pearl:
  I didn't even manage to burn
  the letter properly as my
  mother had asked of me...

*AFTER TALKING TO PEARL*

Phoenix:
  Thanks, Pearls.
  You really helped me out.

Pearl:
  You're very welcome!

Pearl:
  My mother is watching
  over us!

Pearl:
  So I'm sure Mystic Maya
  will be alright!

Phoenix:
  ...
  (Look at that innocent smile
  on her face.)

Phoenix:
  (What am I supposed to say
  to her?)

? ? ?:
  Ha...!

Godot:
  Finally figured it out, have
  you, Trite?

Godot:
  You've finally realized how
  terrible of a crime being
  painfully oblivious is.

Phoenix:
  G-Godot!

Godot:
  The entrance to the Sacred
  Cavern looks like a freaking
  puzzle workshop.

Phoenix:
  (I guess he's talking about
  Iris and the lock-breaking
  effort...)

Godot:
  ...But it's all a waste
  of time.

Phoenix:
  W-Why do you say that?

Godot:
  Because Maya Fey isn't coming
  back.

Phoenix:
  What?

Phoenix:
  You don't know what you're
  talking about! How can you say
  something like that?

Godot:
  It was your job to protect
  her, Trite.

Godot:
  Just like it was your job to
  protect Mia Fey...

Godot:
  Two sisters, caught up in the
  worst circumstances.

Phoenix:
  I... I realize that, but...

Godot:
  And you were the only one
  who was by their sides.

Godot:
  You were the only one who
  could have saved them.

Phoenix:
  But I didn't know anything
  about what was going on!

Godot:
  Ha...!
  What did I just say, Trite?

Godot:
  Being oblivious is a heinous
  crime in itself.

Phoenix:
  ...!

Godot:
  Tomorrow...

Godot:
  We'll settle everything in
  court tomorrow.
  ...Once and for all.

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

Pearl:
  M-Mr. Nick...

Pearl:
  Is... Is what that man just
  said true?

Phoenix:
  It'll be alright, Pearls.

Phoenix:
  I'm sure Maya's alive.
  You'll see for yourself
  tomorrow!

Pearl:
  I... Yeah! That's right!

Pearl:
  I know I can trust you,
  Mr. Nick!

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

Morgan:
     ...My dear Pearl...

Morgan:
  ...You've done so well, my
             child. My Pearl...

Morgan:
  ...It's better that you don't
             know...

Morgan:
  ...I knew this day would come
                for you...

Morgan:
  ...The blood of the main
       family is no more...

Morgan:
  ...Now you... You are to take
         the place at the head
      of the Fey clan...

Morgan:
  ...My last, great wish...
           It seems I was
                 just in time...


                                             To be continued.

February 10, 9:39 AM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 1

Pearl:
  Good morning!
  ...Oh? Are you by yourself?

Phoenix:
  Ah... Morning, Pearls.

Pearl:
  M-Mr. Nick! Please tell me!
  What's going to happen to
  Mystic Maya?

Phoenix:
  I'm sorry...
  We don't know yet.

Phoenix:
  The investigation is still
  going on, so I wasn't allowed
  into the Inner Temple.

Pearl:
  Oh, I see...

Pearl:
  So is Sister Iris still trying
  to remove those trick locks
  in the Training Hall?

Phoenix:
  No... She's the defendant
  in this case, so she can't
  be at the Inner Temple.

Phoenix:
  She's required to be
  here in court.

Pearl:
  Um... Then...
  How come she's not here
  in the defendant's lobby?

Phoenix:
  (I have to admit it's
  kinda strange...)

? ? ?:
  ...If you're looking for Iris,
  she's in the prosecutor's
  lobby.

Phoenix:
  ...Ed-Edgeworth.

Phoenix:
  What's Iris doing over there?

Edgeworth:
  She's going over today's
  testimony with the prosecutor
  as we speak.

Phoenix:
  Today's testimony...?

Edgeworth:
  You heard me...

Edgeworth:
  Iris is going to be
  testifying as a witness
  for the prosecution.

Phoenix:
  Wait, what!?

Edgeworth:
  The prosecutor is squeezing
  her for a confession.
  ...Or so I heard.

Phoenix:
  (Franziska von Karma...
  What are you up to...?)

Edgeworth:
  I know what you're thinking,
  but Franziska isn't going to
  be the prosecutor today.

Phoenix:
  What...!?
  Then who is?

Edgeworth:
  Who else would it be but
  Godot?

Phoenix:
  G-Godot...

Edgeworth:
  ...Franziska is engaged in
  some important work at
  the Sacred Cavern.

Pearl:
  The Sacred Cavern...?
  You don't mean that she's...

Edgeworth:
  Exactly.

Edgeworth:
  She has been out there all
  night, trying to remove those
  trick locks.

Edgeworth:
  With the head nun's
  assistance, naturally.

Edgeworth:
  We estimate that the last of
  the locks should be taken
  care of in about three hours.

Edgeworth:
  I hope everything continues to
  go smoothly and we receive
  some good news soon.

Phoenix:
  Yeah... Thanks, Edgeworth.

Edgeworth:
  Prosecutor Godot intends to
  nail this case shut today.

Edgeworth:
  Be prepared to fight
  like there's no tomorrow!

Phoenix:
  ...You don't have to tell
  me that.

Edgeworth:
  I know.
  I can already see it in
  your eyes.

Edgeworth:
  You're not the same
  fever-ridden, frantic maniac
  you were yesterday.

Phoenix:
  It's strange... On the way
  here, I decided that today
  would be the end of all this.

Phoenix:
  Almost immediately after I
  made that decision, I felt
  myself getting stronger.

Edgeworth:
  Interesting...

Edgeworth:
  Maybe you've passed your
  cold onto someone else,
  literally.

Edgeworth:
  And with that...

Edgeworth:
  I leave the rest in your
  capable hands... partner.

Phoenix:
  Thanks...

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

Phoenix:
  (...I still don't have answers
  for most of the riddles
  plaguing this case.)

Phoenix:
  (The circumstances around the
  murder of Ms. Elise Deauxnim,
  no, I mean Ms. Misty Fey...)

Phoenix:
  (The impossible flight Larry
  claims to have seen...)

Phoenix:
  (And... What that woman is
  really after...)

Phoenix:
  I will solve them all and
  bring this whole tragedy
  to an end!

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

February 10, 10:00 AM
District Court
Courtroom No. 7

Judge:
  Court is now in session
  for the trial of Iris of
  Hazakura Temple.

Godot:
  ...

Phoenix:
  ...

Phoenix:
  Umm... Your Honor...?
  Wh-What are you...?

Judge:
  Who? Me?

Judge:
  Well, my little brother came
  to visit me in my chambers
  earlier this morning.

Judge:
  All of a sudden, in the blink
  of an eye, he developed a
  scorching fever and fainted!

Judge:
  Therefore, I'll be standing
  in for him.

Phoenix:
  I-I see, Your Honor...
  (So they're brothers!
  That explains a lot...)

Judge:
  My poor brother. He looked a
  bit pale, not to mention sad
  that he couldn't be here.

Godot:
  It is impossible to predict
  what the future has in store
  for any of us.

Godot:
  This is precisely why people
  feel the need to judge the
  past.

Godot:
  And we of the court have been
  charged with the solemn duty
  of passing such judgment.

Judge:
  ...Well said, Mr. Godot.

Judge:
  I understood exactly what
  you said... at least up until
  the end, anyway.

Judge:
  Now then, Mr. Godot.
  Please proceed with your
  opening statement.

Godot:
  ...Humans are fragile, fickle
  beings. Our hearts change with
  the shifting of the tides.

Godot:
  There is only one thing
  that remains a constant
  in this crazy world...

Godot:
  The bitter darkness that lies
  at the bottom of this mug.

Judge:
  So then you mean...?
  Um... Forget it.
  What do you mean?

Godot:
  During yesterday's trial,
  the accused refused to admit
  her role in the crime.

Godot:
  But today, she has had a
  change of heart...

Godot:
  Sister Iris of Hazakura Temple
  has a confession to make.

Judge:
  C-Confession...!
  Th-The defendant...?

Phoenix:
  (Iris...)

Phoenix:
  (Why didn't she discuss this
  with me first...?)

Judge:
  Very well.

Judge:
  This court will now hear the
  defendant's confession!

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

Godot:
  ...Upon meeting a beautiful
  lady, always ask for her
  name and profession.

Godot:
  That's one of my rules.

Iris:
  ...Um, my name is Iris.

Iris:
  I am but a simple nun
  undergoing training at
  Hazakura Temple.

Judge:
  Witness, is there something
  that you want to confess to?

Iris:
  ...Yes. But first, I want to
  apologize to Mr. Wright...

Iris:
  I... I can't continue lying
  to everyone anymore.

Phoenix:
  I-It's alright...
  What is it...?

Iris:
  Mr. Wright, I have to admit
  that I... I did play a part in
  this terrible incident.

Judge:
  Are...
  Are you actually confessing!?

Judge:
  Are you saying that you were
  the one who murdered Ms. Elise
  Deauxnim?

Iris:
  ...No, I'm not, Your Honor.

Iris:
  But I dealt with the cover
  up, after the murder took
  place.

Iris:
  After her spirit left,
  I took the lifeless shell
  of Mystic Elise...

Iris:
  ...and carried it to the
  Hazakura Temple Courtyard
  where I desecrated it.

Judge:
  Wh...
  Whaaaat!?

Judge:
  O-Order in the court! Order!

Judge:
  W-Witness...!
  Are you...

Judge:
  Are you saying you were an
  accomplice to the murder!?

Iris:
  ...
  Yes. That's correct.

Phoenix:
  ...Whaaaaaaat!?

Phoenix:
  (Three minutes in court and
  I'm already covered in a cold
  sweat...)

Godot:
  Ha...!
  Everyone on the planet is
  an accomplice to something.

Godot:
  It just happens to be that
  in this case, it's to murder.

Godot:
  Isn't that right...
  Mr. Trite?

Phoenix:
  (Grrr, that Godot...)

Phoenix:
  (So this is the confession
  they were conferring about!)

Phoenix:
  (It pains me to say this...)

Phoenix:
  (...but it looks like Iris's
  testimony was all a lie.)

*Iris's Testimony crumpled up
and shoved into a pocket.*

Godot:
  Now then, little lady.
  If you don't mind, I've got
  a question for you.

Godot:
  Whose crime were you trying
  to cover up by your actions?

Phoenix:
  (Iris was covering for
  someone...?)

Phoenix:
  (Nngh... Now I'm definitely
  up the creek without a
  paddle... or a lifejacket.)

Iris:
  ...I've been at Hazakura
  Temple ever since I was
  a little girl.

Iris:
  Hazakura Temple is run by one
  of the branch families of the
  Kurain Tradition.

Iris:
  One of our missions is to
  protect the main family.

Judge:
  I'm sorry, but
  "main family"...?

Iris:
  Yes, and that's why I would
  dirty myself, if need be, to
  protect her...

Iris:
  The daughter of the Master
  of the Kurain Channeling
  Technique, Mystic Maya Fey!

Phoenix:
  Huh...?

Godot:
  Wake up and smell the coffee,
  Trite.

Phoenix:
  Sh-She's naming...
  MAYAAAAAAAAA!?

Judge:
  Order! Order in the court!

Judge:
  So not only did you witness
  the murder... You know the
  name of the murderer!

Iris:
  I'm terribly sorry...
  But it's true.

Iris:
  I saw her commit the crime
  with my very own eyes...

Iris:
  And then I cleaned up the
  area to try to protect her.

Phoenix:
  *OBJECTION!*

Phoenix:
  Th-That's ridiculous!
  Maya could never do
  such a--

Judge:
  The defense will refrain from
  commenting until the
  appropriate time.

Judge:
  Now, witness.
  Let's hear your testimony.

Judge:
  What exactly happened on
  the night of the crime?

Iris:
  ...

Iris:
  ...Yes, Your Honor.

Phoenix:
  (I thought I was prepared
  for the unexpected...)

Phoenix:
  (But I never imagined the
  case would wind up going
  in this direction...)

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Real Murderer --

(1)
Iris:
  I went to the Inner Temple
  that night and I saw it all
  happen in the garden.

(2)
Iris:
  I saw Mystic Elise strike
  Mystic Maya with her staff!

(3)
Iris:
  While Mystic Maya was still
  stumbling, Mystic Elise moved
  in to deliver a fatal strike!

(4)
Iris:
  Mystic Maya tried desperately
  to defend herself and stole
  the weapon...!

(5)
Iris:
  It was only in self-defense!
  You can't blame her for it!

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

Judge:
  So it was in self-defense?

Iris:
  Yes. Mystic Elise was the one
  who attacked first!

Judge:
  Hmm...

Iris:
  That's why I tried my best
  to protect Mystic Maya!

Godot:
  You moved the victim's body
  to the temple so that Maya
  wouldn't be suspected...

Godot:
  Isn't that right?
  Not bad... You've got the
  instincts of a true criminal.

Phoenix:
  (Something's not quite right.
  I'm sure it was established
  yesterday...)

Phoenix:
  (...that Iris never went to
  the Inner Temple that night.)

Phoenix:
  (And that the person who did
  go was... that woman...)

Phoenix:
  (...Iris even admitted it.)

Judge:
  Now then, Mr. Wright.
  Please proceed with your
  cross-examination.

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Real Murderer --

(1)
Iris:
  I went to the Inner Temple
  that night and I saw it all
  happen in the garden.

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       Sister Iris! Your testimony
       has changed quite a bit
       since yesterday.

     Phoenix:
       You stated yesterday that, on
       the night of the murder, you
       didn't go to the Inner Temple.

     Godot:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Godot:
       Did she now? Too bad for you,
       what she said yesterday
       doesn't mean much today.

     Godot:
       By the way, where were you
       when she claimed that she
       didn't go?

     Phoenix:
       Umm, I... It was in the Inner
       Temple's Training Hall...

     Godot:
       A private conversation between
       the two of you does not
       constitute testimony.

     Godot:
       That would be properly
       described as hearsay.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       What do you have to say,
       witness?

     Iris:
       I-I just couldn't tell him
       the truth at that time.

     Iris:
       Mystic Maya...
       She's your girlfriend,
       isn't she?

     Phoenix:
       ...!

     Iris:
       I... I didn't want to be the
       one to break it to you that I
       saw her commit murder...

     Judge:
       There, there...
       We all understand how
       difficult this is for you.

     Judge:
       Now then, let's continue
       with the testimony.

     Judge:
       What did you witness in
       the temple garden...?

     Iris:
       Well, Your Honor...

(2)
Iris:
  I saw Mystic Elise strike
  Mystic Maya with her staff!

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       You're saying that the
       victim attacked Maya...
       I mean Ms. Fey?

     Iris:
       Y-Yes... It was a
       truly frightening scene.

     Iris:
       Mystic Maya was struck hard
       on the head and looked like
       she was going to collapse.

     Phoenix:
       What were you doing
       at the time?

     Iris:
       Um...

     Phoenix:
       Why didn't you stop
       them from fighting!?

     Iris:
       I-I'm terribly sorry,
       Mr. Wright...

     Iris:
       I was... I was frightened...
       I couldn't move...

     Iris:
       I couldn't even speak,
       I was in such shock...

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       That's perfectly
       understandable, my dear.

     Phoenix:
       (This doesn't sound right...)

     Phoenix:
       (I don't believe this
       testimony for a minute!)

     Judge:
       ...What happened after that?

(3)
Iris:
  While Mystic Maya was still
  stumbling, Mystic Elise moved
  in to deliver a fatal strike!

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       She moved in to deliver a
       fatal strike?

     Iris:
       ...Yes, I'm sure of it.

     Iris:
       She threw down her staff and
       reached into her robe for
       a weapon...

     Phoenix:
       Wait a minute!
       What was this weapon...?

     Iris:
       It-It was...
       some kind of dagger.

     Phoenix:
       (A dagger, huh...?)

     Phoenix:
       And Elise Deauxnim tried to
       stab her with this weapon?

     Phoenix:
       ...To kill Ms. Fey?

     Iris:
       Yes... Exactly.

     Phoenix:
       ...

     Godot:
       Ha...!

     Godot:
       You look like I did after I
       mistakenly took a swig of
       Worcestershire sauce.

     Phoenix:
       ...!

     Godot:
       Do you have a problem with
       the testimony we're hearing
       from your client, Lawyer Boy?

     Phoenix:
       (Hmm... Do I have a problem
       with Iris's testimony...?)

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

(3b)
Iris:
  She threw her staff away
  and pulled a dagger from
  inside her robe!

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       She threw her staff away?

     Iris:
       Mystic Elise was trying to
       kill Mystic Maya.

     Iris:
       I think that's why she wanted
       a more lethal weapon.

     Judge:
       It's true...
       It's not easy to inflict a
       deadly blow with a staff.

     Phoenix:
       Sister Iris, let me make
       sure I've got this straight.

     Phoenix:
       The victim herself chose to
       throw away her staff?

     Iris:
       Y-Yes.
       That's what I saw...

     Judge:
       Is there anything odd
       about that, Mr. Wright?

     Phoenix:
       ...
       (Yeah, it's odd alright.)

     Iris:
       Mystic Elise attacked Mystic
       Maya with the dagger. I'm
       sure of this.

(4)
Iris:
  Mystic Maya tried desperately
  to defend herself and stole
  the weapon...!

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       ...And then?

     Iris:
       Mystic Maya, she turned things
       around and then...

     Iris:
       ...she used the weapon she
       had taken and lunged forward
       for a strike!

     Judge:
       W-Witness! Are you
       absolutely certain!?

     Iris:
       Yes...
       B-But believe me, she
       had no choice!

     Iris:
       If Mystic Maya hadn't done
       something...

     Godot:
       ...Maya Fey's name would've
       been written on this autopsy
       report instead.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       Yes, I see...

     Phoenix:
       (This is bad...)

     Phoenix:
       (I still can't put the
       pieces together...)

     Phoenix:
       (Unless I find a contradiction
       in her testimony, Maya's going
       to get blamed for this.)

     Iris:
       I...
       I only have this to say...

(5)
Iris:
  It was only in self-defense!
  You can't blame her for it!

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       ...So you're saying Maya Fey
       was the one who stabbed
       Ms. Elise Deauxnim.

     Phoenix:
       Sister Iris! Is that really
       what you saw?

     Iris:
       Yes...

     Godot:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Godot:
       Tsk, tsk, tsk, Trite.

     Godot:
       If your mug is filled with
       black and bitter suspicions...

     Godot:
       The only way to get rid of
       them is to drink them down
       quick...

     Godot:
       ...Like this!

     Phoenix:
       Umm...
       I know that's supposed be a
       metaphor, but I don't get it.

     Godot:
       There's only one thing you
       need to "get", Trite.
       It's called evidence...

     Godot:
       Now hurry up...
       Before my next cup gets cold!

     Phoenix:
       (What does that mean...?)

     Phoenix:
       (Is Godot waiting for me to
       point out the contradictions?)

     Iris:
       ...

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

Phoenix:
  (I'd like to avoid the whole
  spirit channeling thing if I
  can...)

Phoenix:
  (Not only would it be
  inadmissible as evidence...)

Phoenix:
  (...but I think it might
  actually hurt our standing
  with the judge.)

Phoenix:
  (First I need to pick her
  testimony apart and expose the
  unnatural-sounding parts...)

Phoenix:
  (I don't know why Iris would
  tell a story like this...)

Phoenix:
  (...but there are two things
  I noticed that just don't
  add up!)

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*Present Victim's Staff* at (3b)

Phoenix:
  *OBJECTION!*

Phoenix:
  Sister Iris...

Phoenix:
  There's something strange
  about your version of events.

Iris:
  Huh...?

Phoenix:
  Ms. Deauxnim throwing her
  staff away makes no sense
  at all to me.

Iris:
  B-But all you can do with
  a staff is hit someone...

Phoenix:
  Naturally you wouldn't know
  this, Sister Iris, but...

Phoenix:
  ...the victim's staff had a
  special feature about it.

Phoenix:
  As you can see,
  it's a sword.

Iris:
  Ah...!

Phoenix:
  If Elise Deauxnim really had
  wanted to kill Maya Fey...

Phoenix:
  ...she wouldn't have needed
  to use a separate dagger!

Phoenix:
  Not when she already had a
  beautiful blade in her hands
  already!

Phoenix:
  ...Well, Sister Iris?
  What do you have to say?

Iris:
  Uhh, err, I...

Godot:
  *OBJECTION!*

Godot:
  ...That was an impressive
  bit of investigating, Trite.

Godot:
  I never would have thought
  there was a sword hidden
  in that staff.

Godot:
  But even so...
  How should I put this?

Phoenix:
  ...!

Godot:
  A long sword is unwieldy,
  and thus quite ineffective
  in close-quarters combat.

Godot:
  Maybe that's why she chose
  a dagger over her blade.

Phoenix:
  Um, well...

Godot:
  Anyway, the type of weapon
  she chose to use isn't what's
  important.

Godot:
  The important thing is that
  she tried to kill Maya Fey.

Godot:
  As long as there's nothing
  strange about that, there's no
  problem with her testimony.

Phoenix:
  (But there is something
  strange about this whole
  testimony!)

Judge:
  Well, Mr. Wright?
  The prosecution has a point.

Phoenix:
  ...Very well, Your Honor.
  The defense will now present
  evidence to back its argument.

Iris:
  M-Mr. Wright...!

Phoenix:
  I have here another piece of
  evidence that shows that this
  testimony can't be trusted.

Phoenix:
  Because Ms. Elise Deauxnim
  would never attempt to take
  the life of Maya Fey!

x Godot:

*Present Elise Deauxnim profile*

Phoenix:
  *TAKE THAT!*

Phoenix:
  ...Elise Deauxnim would never
  have attacked Maya Fey.

Iris:
  Ho-How can you be so sure...?

Phoenix:
  Because the victim's real
  name was not "Elise Deauxnim".

Phoenix:
  Her real name was...
  "Misty Fey".

Judge:
  ..."Fey"?

Iris:
  Aaah! N-No...!
  N-Not Mystic Misty Fey!

Judge:
  Wh-Who is this Misty Fey?
  Is she related to...?

Phoenix:
  Misty Fey is the Master of
  the Kurain Channeling
  Technique. She is also...

Phoenix:
  ...the mother of Maya Fey!

Judge:
  A-Are you serious!?

Iris:
  Is it... really true?
  Mr. Wright...!?

Iris:
  Was Elise Deauxnim actually
  the great Mystic Misty!?

Phoenix:
  There's no doubt about it.

Phoenix:
  (It looks like Iris had no
  idea...)

Iris:
  I can hardly believe it...

Phoenix:
  The idea that she would try to
  kill her only daughter, one
  she hadn't seen in 17 years...

Phoenix:
  Perhaps the prosecution can
  offer some explanation for why
  she would do such a thing!

Godot:
  ...Ugh...!

Judge:
  Order! Order in the court!

Judge:
  Upon first hearing the
  witness's testimony, it
  seemed natural enough.

Judge:
  ...However.

Judge:
  In light of some facts that
  have just been presented...

Iris:
  ...

Judge:
  One, that the victim
  supposedly threw away a sword
  during a fight...

Judge:
  ...and two, that the two
  people battling to the death
  were mother and daughter...

Judge:
  Despite the facts being
  believable when taken on their
  own...

Judge:
  ...when taken together, the
  entire story seems difficult
  to believe.

Godot:
  ...Listen. There's nothing in
  this world that is impossible.

Godot:
  Except for one little thing.

Judge:
  Yes? What is this one little
  impossible thing...?

Godot:
  Ha...!
  You still don't get it.

Godot:
  You think maybe my beans
  are under-roasted, but you
  have no idea gramps.

Phoenix:
  Umm...
  Could you get to your point?

Godot:
  I heard this witness's
  confession this morning...

Godot:
  ...just as I had taken the
  first sip of my eighth cup
  of morning coffee.

Judge:
  ...You're going to ruin your
  health, my friend.

Godot:
  Anyway, after hearing this
  woman's confession...

Godot:
  I had a detective who loves to
  investigate sent to the scene
  of the crime.

Godot:
  And... he discovered this
  little beauty.

Judge:
  Is that the dagger the witness
  testified to seeing...?

Godot:
  Obviously, Your Honor...
  But do you not notice
  something else?

Judge:
  ...Now that you mention it,
  if you look closely, there
  appears to be a bloodstain!

Phoenix:
  Wh-Where did you find that?

Phoenix:
  I didn't see that when I
  investigated the crime scene!

Godot:
  ...Did you investigate the
  pine tree at the crime scene?

Phoenix:
  Huh? The pine tree...?

Godot:
  This dagger was stuck in the
  back side of the pine tree.

Godot:
  When the last blow was struck,
  ending the violent battle
  between the two women...

Godot:
  ...this little baby was thrown
  in the direction of the back
  of the pine tree.

Judge:
  Which means... the blood on
  this dagger belongs to the
  victim, correct!?

Godot:
  Ha...!
  Were you even listening,
  old man?

Godot:
  I first heard this confession
  this morning.

Godot:
  Just as I had taken the first
  sip of my 13th cup of morning
  coffee.

Phoenix:
  (Didn't you say it was your
  8th just a few minutes ago!?)

Godot:
  I didn't have enough time
  to get the blood analyzed
  on such short notice.

Judge:
  In any case, the court will
  accept the dagger as evidence.

Judge:
  Furthermore, I order that a
  blood test be performed on it
  immediately!

Godot:
  This is my sweetheart.
  Make sure you treat her right.

Judge:
  ...Bailiff! Get this piece of
  evidence to the crime lab
  for testing immediately!

*Dagger added to the
Court Record.*

Judge:
  Now then...

Judge:
  The testimony we've just
  heard had numerous
  unbelievable aspects to it.

Judge:
  However! After having
  found the very dagger the
  witness spoke of...

Judge:
  ...I believe we can consider
  her testimony to be credible.

Godot:
  Cute girls never lie. Ever.

Judge:
  In any case, witness...
  If you could please testify
  again to this court.

Iris:
  Umm...
  About what, Your Honor?

Judge:
  About the incident you saw...
  The battle between the two
  women!

Iris:
  ...Yes, Your Honor.

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

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- The Battle --

(1)
Iris:
  Mystic Maya stumbled briefly
  after being hit over the head
  with the staff...

(2)
Iris:
  But then she dodged
  Mystic Elise's next attack
  and stole her weapon!

(3)
Iris:
  Suddenly Mystic Elise was the
  one on the defensive, with her
  back to the stone lantern.

(4)
Iris:
  That's when Mystic Maya
  stabbed Mystic Elise!

(5)
Iris:
  Mystic Elise managed to fling
  the knife away, but then...
  Then... she collapsed.

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

Judge:
  ...That was a very heart-
  breaking story.

Iris:
  I don't know if there were
  any bad feelings between
  them, but...

Iris:
  It had been 17 years since
  Mystic Misty's disappearance.

Iris:
  ...Perhaps they simply
  didn't recognize each
  other anymore...

Judge:
  Hmm...
  That seems reasonable.

Judge:
  Now then, Mr. Wright.
  Proceed with your
  cross-examination.

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- The Battle --

(1)
Iris:
  Mystic Maya stumbled briefly
  after being hit over the head
  with the staff...

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       Iris, where were you standing
       when you witnessed all this?

     Iris:
       Umm... What do you mean?

     Phoenix:
       Well, if either of them
       had noticed you...

     Phoenix:
       ...they might not have
       continued their battle.

     Iris:
       I...
       I wonder if that's true...

     Iris:
       The two of them...
       They were standing near the
       garden's stone lantern.

     Iris:
       I... I was watching the whole
       thing from behind.

     Iris:
       It was dark where the two of
       them were, so...

     Iris:
       I think that's why they didn't
       see me.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       So it was dark in the garden
       when the murder took place...

     Judge:
       Tell me, what did Ms. Maya Fey
       do after she was struck?

(2)
Iris:
  But then she dodged
  Mystic Elise's next attack
  and stole her weapon!

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       What happened to the
       victim's staff then?

     Iris:
       I-I'm not sure.

     Iris:
       The area was very dark, so...
       I really couldn't see.

     Iris:
       I think it got knocked
       away somewhere as the
       fight escalated.

     Judge:
       That makes sense...

     Judge:
       That would explain the
       need for the dagger.

     Iris:
       Mystic Elise raised the
       dagger to strike.

     Iris:
       But Mystic Maya dodged it
       at the last second.

     Iris:
       The dagger struck the lantern
       and fell to the ground.

     Iris:
       And then at some point,
       Mystic Maya picked it up...!

     Phoenix:
       (Nothing sounds especially
       strange yet...)

     Judge:
       What did the victim do when
       the weapon was stolen
       from her?

(3)
Iris:
  Suddenly Mystic Elise was the
  one on the defensive, with her
  back to the stone lantern.

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       You're saying that Maya Fey
       turned the tables on the
       victim?

     Iris:
       Y-Yes...

     Iris:
       ...But Mystic Maya wasn't
       herself at the time.

     Iris:
       After all...
       Her life was in danger...

     Phoenix:
       (I still can't believe it...)

     Phoenix:
       (The idea of Maya cornering
       someone at knifepoint!
       It's just silly!)

     Godot:
       As they say...
       "A cornered fox is more
       dangerous than a jackal".

     Phoenix:
       I believe the correct
       description of a cornered fox
       is "scared and petrified".

     Godot:
       ...

     Godot:
       Your animal analogies have
       grown tiresome!

     Phoenix:
       (You were the one who
       started it!)

     Judge:
       Anyway...

     Judge:
       So, after Maya Fey backed the
       victim into the stone lantern,
       what happened next?

(4)
Iris:
  That's when Mystic Maya
  stabbed Mystic Elise!

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       Are you absolutely certain
       that's what you saw!?

     Iris:
       ...

     Iris:
       Yes, I'm almost certain.

     Phoenix:
       "Almost"...?

     Iris:
       The garden was dark...

     Iris:
       I couldn't really tell
       who was who.

     Phoenix:
       (What did she just say!?)

     Phoenix:
       S-So in other words, it
       could have been someone
       else entirely...!

     Godot:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Godot:
       We know that Maya Fey
       was at the Inner Temple
       that night.

     Godot:
       And that the woman that
       was killed was Elise Deauxnim.

     Godot:
       Isn't it fairly obvious who
       attacked who?

     Phoenix:
       Nnrgh...
       (I don't have anything to
       counter that yet...)

     Judge:
       ...Well then, witness.
       Please continue with
       your testimony.

     Iris:
       ...Yes, Your Honor.

     Iris:
       The two of them faced each
       other for a moment...

     Iris:
       Then Mystic Maya rushed
       straight into Mystic Elise!

     Iris:
       Then Mystic Elise doubled
       over and fell to the ground.

     Judge:
       Hmm...
       So she was stabbed in
       the stomach, huh?

     Iris:
       Yes...

(5)
Iris:
  Mystic Elise managed to fling
  the knife away, but then...
  Then... she collapsed.

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       Where did that dagger go?

     Iris:
       ...I have no idea.
       It was dark and I
       couldn't see.

     Godot:
       According to the detective
       who found the dagger...

     Godot:
       ...it was stuck into the pine
       tree in the garden.

     Godot:
       Most likely it was flung
       towards the tree after
       the stuggle.

     Judge:
       That is the most likely
       explanation, yes.

     Phoenix:
       After being stabbed in the
       stomach, did the victim
       collapse right away?

     Iris:
       ...

     Iris:
       Now that I think of it...

     Iris:
       ...she seemed to stare at
       Mystic Maya for a while.

     Iris:
       And Mystic Maya stood there,
       not moving an inch...

     Iris:
       It felt for a moment like
       time had just stopped.

     Judge:
       Hmm...

     Iris:
       But then, suddenly, as if
       the spell had worn off,
       Mystic Elise fell over...

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

Phoenix:
  (It seems like a reasonable
  story at first...)

Phoenix:
  (But... there's one thing that
  is completely impossible.)

Phoenix:
  (The very idea of Maya
  stabbing someone...)

Phoenix:
  (That alone is impossible!
  Which means...)

Phoenix:
  (...this faulty testimony must
  contain another contradiction
  in it somewhere.)

RETURN TO THE START OF CROSS-EXAMINATION

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

*Present Elise's Autopsy Report* at (4)

Phoenix:
  *OBJECTION!*

Phoenix:
  ...Something about you just
  isn't right today, Iris!

Iris:
  Huh...?

Phoenix:
  Until now, I didn't think you
  were the type to make such
  a careless mistake.

Phoenix:
  However! The testimony you
  just gave contains quite
  a few contradictions.

Iris:
  Wh-What do you mean?
  What's so wrong about my
  testimony?

Phoenix:
  According to you...

Phoenix:
  ...Maya Fey stabbed the
  victim, who had her back to
  the stone lantern... Correct?

Iris:
  Y-Yes... That's right.

Phoenix:
  But in that case, the victim
  would've been stabbed in the
  stomach, right?

Judge:
  Y-Yes, I think so...

Phoenix:
  But! According to the
  autopsy report...

Phoenix:
  ...the cause of death was
  due to blood loss from a stab
  wound in her back.

Iris:
  Ah...!

Phoenix:
  This proves that the victim
  was stabbed from behind,
  not from the front!

Phoenix:
  Sister Iris!

Phoenix:
  It appears another seed of
  doubt has sprouted from your
  testimony!

Iris:
  Aaaaaaaah!

Judge:
  What...!? What is the meaning
  of this, Mr. Wright!?

Godot:
  Ha...!
  It's simple.

Godot:
  People are like books. We've
  all got a front and a back.
  You get my drift?

Judge:
  ...

Judge:
  Umm, is that all you
  have to say?

Godot:
  I can also say that darkness
  loves to play with the human
  mind.

Phoenix:
  *OBJECTION!*

Phoenix:
  Could you please knock it off
  with the cheesy proverbs and
  illogical metaphors already!?

Phoenix:
  The point is, too much of
  this testimony just doesn't
  make sense!

Phoenix:
  Throwing away a useful staff,
  the people fighting being
  mother and daughter...

Phoenix:
  And now, she falsely
  claims the victim was
  stabbed in the stomach!

Judge:
  Hmm...
  There certainly are some
  inconsistencies.

Phoenix:
  Well, Iris...
  How about it!?

Iris:
  ...
  W-Well, it's just...

Godot:
  If you ask me, you're just
  being too naïve about the
  whole thing.

Phoenix:
  What do you mean...?

Godot:
  There are 253 distinct types
  of bitterness in coffee...

Godot:
  But to pick out each one
  requires total concentration
  and the use of all the senses.

Godot:
  Were you really concentrating
  on what this witness actually
  said?

Judge:
  Prosecutor Godot!
  Explain yourself!

Godot:
  The witness was quite
  unambigious about her own
  ambiguities when she said...

Godot:
  ...that the garden was dark
  and she couldn't see clearly.

Phoenix:
  ...!

Godot:
  A human needs one thing
  to see clearly.

Godot:
  And that is... light.

Judge:
  Light...

Godot:
  By the way, did you know?

Godot:
  The Inner Temple has a rule
  that on nights when an acolyte
  is there training...

Godot:
  ...the stone lantern in the
  garden is to always be lit.

Phoenix:
  (Hmm... I did wonder what
  that stone lantern was there
  for...)

Judge:
  Well if that's true...

Judge:
  ...shouldn't the witness have
  been able to see the crime
  more clearly?

Godot:
  ...Normally yes, Your Honor.
  But according to the
  head nun, Sister Bikini...

Godot:
  ...on the night of the crime,
  it was impossible to light
  that stone lantern.

Phoenix:
  Impossible...?

Godot:
  It hadn't been used in a long
  time and the wick was
  no good.

Godot:
  In other words... It had to
  be nearly pitch black in
  the garden that night.

Godot:
  There could have been a
  faint light coming from the
  Training Hall, but that's all.

Judge:
  Most enlightening...

Godot:
  Yes, that illuminating fact
  has chased all the
  contradictions away!

Godot:
  ...If the staff was dropped,
  it would be difficult to see.

Godot:
  It also explains why they
  didn't recognize each other.

Godot:
  We can't see the demons
  that lurk in the night...
  That's why humans are weak.

Godot:
  Isn't that right, Trite?

Phoenix:
  N--

Phoenix:
  Nooooooooooooooo!

Judge:
  Order! Order! Ordeeer!

Godot:
  Here, Your Honor.
  Let me present the stone
  lantern into evidence.

Godot:
  Maybe it will rekindle the
  flame of truth in your mind.

*Stone Lantern added
to the Court Record.*

Judge:
  ............

Phoenix:
  (Why is the judge just sitting
  there with that look on his
  face...?)

Godot:
  ...What's wrong, Your Honor?
  Was that flame too hot?

Judge:
  Th-This lantern...
  There's something written
  on it!

Godot:
  ...?

Judge:
  Wh-Why...
  It's written in blood!

Phoenix:
  (Oooh boy...!)

Phoenix:
  (So the judge didn't know
  about that yet...)

Godot:
  Written... in blood?

Iris:
  ...

Judge:
  It... It says...!

Judge:
  It says, "Maya" upside-down!

Godot:
  Wh-What the...!?

Iris:
  Oh yes... That's right...

Iris:
  After being cornered
  and then stabbed by
  Mystic Maya...

Iris:
  Mystic Elise didn't fall down
  right away.

Iris:
  She must have been writing
  that on the stone lantern
  behind her...

Iris:
  ...with the blood that was
  draining out of her body!

Judge:
  Hmm...
  It certainly looks that way...

Godot:
  *OBJECTION!*

Godot:
  Hang on...
  Hang on just a minute!

Godot:
  What are you all talking
  about!?

Judge:
  What do you mean, "What are
  we all talking about?"

Phoenix:
  We're talking about the
  message written in blood...

Godot:
  Hmph... Nonsense!

Godot:
  This lantern...
  It's as clean as a whistle!

Phoenix:
  (C-Could it be...?)

Phoenix:
  (He can't see the bloody
  writing at all...!?)

Phoenix:
  (Now that I think of it,
  he did say something to
  me yesterday...)

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

Godot:
  My eyesight is pretty
  messed up.

Godot:
  Even with these huge goggles
  on my head, I still can't see
  everything.

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

Phoenix:
  (So that's what he
  meant by that...)

Judge:
  ...In any case, this is
  obviously an important clue.

Judge:
  We now know that the
  crime scene was dark...

Judge:
  ...and that the victim
  scrawled this message
  on the stone lantern!

Judge:
  Well, Mr. Godot?
  Anything further?

Godot:
  ...

Judge:
  M-Mr. Godot?

Godot:
  ...!
  Errr, umm...

Godot:
  OK then...
  Let's move on.

Phoenix:
  (Godot is literally shaking,
  and somehow, I don't think
  it's from caffeine overdose.)

Judge:
  ...I believe it has now been
  established...

Judge:
  ...that Ms. Deauxnim was
  killed by Maya Fey.

Phoenix:
  (Th-That's... just wrong!)

Godot:
  ...Now it's time to turn
  our attention to you.

Iris:
  ...Yes, sir.

Godot:
  After the victim died, you
  did something, didn't you?

Godot:
  Let's hear it.
  ...We're all ears.

WITNESS TESTIMONY
-- Sister Iris's Cover-Up --

(1)
Iris:
  After Mystic Elise died...
  I called out to Mystic Maya.

(2)
Iris:
  I thought it was my duty to
  protect the future Master of
  the Kurain Tradition.

(3)
Iris:
  So I removed the body from
  the Inner Temple by myself...

(4)
Iris:
  I dragged it behind
  me all the way across
  Dusky Bridge.

(5)
Iris:
  Then I used the snowmobile
  to carry it back to
  Hazakura Temple and...

(6)
Iris:
  ...I used the Shichishito to
  alter the way the wound
  looked.

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

Judge:
  ...So you moved the body.

Iris:
  Yes... I was raised at
  Hazakura Temple...

Iris:
  I owe a great deal of
  thanks to the Fey clan.

Iris:
  But even so...
  I never imagined...

Iris:
  ...that Elise Deauxnim was
  actually Misty Fey!

Iris:
  I've...
  I've committed a terrible sin!

Judge:
  Hmm...
  A terrible trick of fate.

Phoenix:
  (I believe you're looking for
  "twist of fate", Your Honor.)

Iris:
  I intended to return to the
  Inner Temple after taking care
  of the body...

Iris:
  But...

Godot:
  You were spotted by the
  head nun, correct?

Iris:
  Yes... And that's why
  I couldn't go back.

Judge:
  ...Your story makes sense,
  I suppose.

Judge:
  Mr. Wright, go ahead with your
  cross-examination.

Phoenix:
  ...Yes, Your Honor.

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

CROSS EXAMINATION
-- Sister Iris's Cover-Up --

(1)
Iris:
  After Mystic Elise died...
  I called out to Mystic Maya.

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       So you waited until everything
       was over before making a
       move?

     Iris:
       N-No, it's not like that...

     Godot:
       *OBJECTION!*

     Godot:
       She saw someone murdered
       right in front of her eyes...

     Godot:
       It's not surprising that
       she was a little timid...

     Judge:
       ...Yes, I suppose that's true.

     Judge:
       Sometimes when I'm watching
       lawyers argue back and forth
       with each other...

     Judge:
       ...I feel so helpless that I
       just sit quietly and wait for
       them to reach a conclusion.

     Phoenix:
       (...Isn't it your job as the
       judge to mediate the
       argument!?)

     Iris:
       It wasn't until Mystic Maya
       saw me...

     Iris:
       ...that it finally dawned on
       her what she had done.

(2)
Iris:
  I thought it was my duty to
  protect the future Master of
  the Kurain Tradition.

     Phoenix:
       *HOLD IT!*

     Phoenix:
       So then... You knew...?

     Phoenix:
       You knew the significance of
       the name "Maya Fey"...?

     Iris:
       Y-Yes...
       Of course I did.

     Phoenix:
       (That's odd...)

     Phoenix:
       (I mean, Sister Bikini didn't
       recognize Maya's name, let
       alone her position...)
