Case 2 - Turnabout Sisters
Trial #2 - Part 3

: What happened? ... Oh, right... I lost the trial. I was... hallucinating. ...

: Ah, you're finally awake.

: ... "Gak"? That's no way to greet an old friend! Phoenix, I want you to look at me.

: Y-You're... M-Maya...?

: When you accepted your defeat in court... It appears that was enough of a shock to awaken Maya's true powers.
: So... Maya is channeling you, Mia?
: That's right. I am Maya, but I'm also Mia.

: Maya never gave up. You can't either! That's what I came here to tell you.
: ...! B-but!
: We don't have much time, Phoenix. Now listen. You've already won.
: Huh...?
: You have that Receipt in the court record, right?

: Phoenix! White wrote that, not me!
: So... so what do I do with it?
: Look at the front of the receipt!
: The... front?

: (Looks like it's from a famous department store. "$1,000.00"... wow, big spender! "Item"... "glass light stand"...! "Date of purchase"... "September 4"...) ...! September 4!
: That's right, Phoenix.

: I bought that stand the day before I was killed!
: Whoa!
: Now, what did Mr. White say in his testimony?

: There you go! I think the court is about to reconvene!
: Go do it, Phoenix! You know you're innocent, now you just have to prove it!
: Right!

: The court will now reconvene for the trial of Mr. Phoenix Wright.
: Is the defendant... rather, are you alright, Mr. Wright?
: Yes. Sorry, Your Honor. I'm fine now.
: Then, let's start where we left off.

: Your Honor.
: There is nothing to go back to! The cross-examination of Mr. White is finished!
: All that is required now is for you to pass judgment on the defendant Phoenix Wright!
: Hmm...

: Your Honor! Please, give me one more chance. I promise you, this is the last time I'll ask you!
: Hmm...
: But, as Mr. Edgeworth has noted, the trial is more or less finished.
: Mr. Edgeworth, do you have an opinion on this matter?

: I say... let us give Mr. Phoenix Wright his "last chance."
: Very well! You may begin your cross-examination.

: Do you have proof!?

: Miss April May knew the details of Ms. Fey's phone conversation! This proves that the wiretap was placed before the murder!
: Huh... right. (Gah! I have to show him the evidence Mia gave me!)

That's about all that changes - that line gets appended to the end of everything,

: See the word "Maya" written in blood...?

: I think not. Look at the other side of the receipt.
: Th-the other side?
: Your Honor. Would you tell the court what is written on the other side of that receipt?

: Well! A "glass light stand"! And the date of purchase... Why, that's the day before the murder!

: Mr. White. When you allegedly entered Fey & Co. Law Offices at the beginning of September...

: Well, Mr. White? Can't get out of this one, can you?

: (Uh oh... he's losing it.) ...
: Well, Your Honor. I understand there must be quite a bit of PRESSURE on you.

: But I think you'll agree you can't judge me "guilty" under these circumstances.
: ! ...... Very well.

: Then, that is all for the trial of...

: Not so fast, Phoenix Wright!

: Eh? (What! No way can he worm his way out of this one! Oh wait... I forgot. It's Edgeworth.)

: There is a certain thread of logic to the defendant's claims.

: However! There is no concrete proof that Phoenix Wright is innocent!
: (...!)
: Ergo!
: I would like to request one more day before Phoenix Wright is granted his freedom. I need time to make one more inquiry into this matter.
: Hmm...!
: (Another inquiry...!? This isn't going to be another one of those "updated autopsy reports"! This guy just makes up evidence as he pleases!)

: (Hmm. I don't know where he's going with this. I'd better hold back for now.)
: I see...
: Very well. As there is no objection from the defense, I grant Mr. Edgeworth his extra day.

: Mr. White's guilt is obvious! There is no need to prolong this trial any further!
: Hmm.
: Well, Mr. Edgeworth?

: If anyone is going to call Mr. White to trial, it would be me, the prosecution.
: I need a day to ascertain whether your claims have any basis in factual evidence!
: Hmm.
: I see. Objection denied!
: Whaaaat!


: The completion of the trial of Mr. Phoenix Wright will be postponed until tomorrow.
: (No! There's no telling what will happen if I can't end this now!)

: (Edgeworth is sure to come up with--or just make up--something! And after Mia showed up to help me and all..)

: Mr. Your Honor!
: May I go home?
: Of course. Thank you for your time.
: (Gah!)

: (M-Mia...!)

: Read this note out loud.
: Mia? What's this...?

: Your Honor. If I may...?
: You're quite persistent today, Mr. Wright!
: (You bet I am! My life is riding on this one!)

: Many of them sounded strangely familiar. People in finance, famous celebrities... That's when it happened.

: P-please, stop! Make him stop! How... how did you get that list!?
: Mr. White. Admit your guilt, right here, right now. Or else this list will be released to the press!

: Case closed, Your Honor.

: Well, I see no reason to continue this trial.
: Mr. Wright?
: Yes, Your Honor.
: You've done it again! That was quite a spirited defense!
: Yes, Your Honor. I guess you could say that. (If only you knew how "spirit"-ed it was!)
: Hmm. Well!
: This court finds the defense... Ahem! Rather, the defendant, Mr. Phoenix Wright...

: That is all. The court is adjourned!

: But, congratulations! You're lucky I was born a Fey!
: I'm lucky I had both you and Maya on my side.
: I'm glad you made it. ... Thank you, Phoenix. You risked a lot to help me... and Maya. I won't forget it as long as I live!
: (As long as you "live"...?)
: ... My time here's running out.
: Huh?
: Maya's powers are still weak.
: I can't stay here that long.
: W-what!? No! There's still so much to say!
: Don't worry. I'm sure we'll meet again.
: Ch-Chief!
: Hee hee. I'm not the "Chief" anymore.
: Phoenix? Can you come to the office tonight... say, 9:00?
: The office...?
: I'll see you later.

: You came!
: Mia...
: I was kinda worried you might not.
: Huh? Of course I came...
: Well then! I'm pretty hungry. How about a burger?
: M-Mia...?
: ... Bwah hah hah! You should see your face!
: Mia!

: M-Maya...?

: (Look like... you WERE her!)
: Hmm! I might be able to use that. "Oh, Phoenix! Go to the store and buy me lunch, would you?"
: Uhm, Maya... Why are you here?

: See? Mia wrote me a letter. "Take care of Phoenix for me."
: Take care of... huh?
: She means the office! This office!
: Someone has to help with the new Wright & Co. Law Offices, right?

: Wait, no, on second thought, let's make this casual!
: Yo, Nick! Maya here, ready to get down to business! You... don't mind me calling you "Nick," do you? It's a great name! Mia said that's what your friend Larry calls you.
: ("Nick"...?)
: You know what this means? We're partners!

: It is Maya's fault I'm here now. But... If it wasn't for her I'd probably be in jail! "Wright & Co. Law Offices." It's got a good ring to it. Yeah! Thanks, Maya!

: (Good luck, Phoenix. I'll always be here... watching.)

: Huh? Do... what?
: Burgers, dummy! Burgers! There's a great burger joint just down the street. C'mon! Time's a wasting!
: O-okay! Wait up!
