T&T Case 3-4, partial script 1/?

This starts where the one on C-R ends, and goes through just that recess. I'm not doing any further formatting on this; if someone wants to use this in another guide, they can; credit would be nice but I really don't care that much. Apologies for completely illegible HTML if you are trying to convert it; the LJ rich-text WYSIWYG editor produces awful HTML.



[Background: Lobby]
February 16, 1:14 PM
District Court
Defendant Lobby No. 4

Mia:
    Mr. Fawles... I...

Fawles:
    UGGAAA!

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, bu 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.

    All we know is that she's
    a student studying
    literature.

    And one more thing.

Mia:
    ...What is it?

Armando:
    Well, the incident that
    happened 5 years ago
,
    of course.

    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.

    ...About what happened
    5 years ago.

Fawles:
    ...

    OK.
    I trust you.

    That day, 5 years ago.
    I dream of it.  Every day.

[Background: witness photo]

   
This picture.
    It reminds me everything.

    Bridge looks same.
    Just like then...
    5 years ago...

    Like it could fall apart...
    Fall apart any minute...

[Background: Map]

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.

    ...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!?  Ar you
    serious!?

[Background: black]
[replay kidnapping movie]
[Background: overhead view of kidnapping]


    (The detective back then
    was Valerie Hawthorne!)


    At first I thought shooting
    someone for a kidnapping was
    crossing the line, but...
   
    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!

    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...

    Me and Dahlia write kidnap
    note. We send to her dad.
   
    Asked for 2 million dollar
    diamond.  Tell him make
    exchange on Dusky Bridge.

    ...We tell him Valerie make
    transfer cause she new
    detective.

Armando:
    Having a police detective
    in your pocket is a useful 
    thing alright.

    In the end, you were planning
    on splitting the 2 million
    three ways, huh...

Fawles:
    Yeah, but!
    That woman!

[Background: kidnapping scene]

    That woman!
    Valerie!
    She do it for real!

    She shoot at me for real!
    Me and Dahlia!

*BANG!*
[Background: body falls from bridge]

   
    I was shot in arm.
    Dahlia... she jump in river.

[Background: Lobby]

Mia:
    Jump...?
    You don't mean she jumped
    on purpose, do you?

Fawles:
    I couldn't do it!
    I could never push her...!
   
    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.

[Background: Valerie testifying]


Valerie:
    That man... Terry Fawles...
    He killed her!
    He threw her off the bridge!

    He threw my beloved sister
    into the roaring river
    40 feet below!

[Background: Lobby]

Fawles:
    ...These 5 years...
    All I wonder is... Why!
    ...Why! ...Why! ...Why!

    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.

    I don't want to hurt her!
    ...Just ask why!

    Why!  Why did you lie...?
    Why did you betray me...?
   
    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...
   
    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.

    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?
 
[Background: kidnapping]

Fawles:
    That day.  On the bridge...

    Dahlia put it.  In backpack...

[Background: body falls from bridge]

    Now gone. With Dahlia.
    Gone... Forever...

    Into Eagle River...

[Background: Lobby]

Mia:
    (It disappeared with
    Dahlia, huh...?
    Wait a minute...!)


Baliff:
    ...You can come back in now!
    We're about ready to go!

Mia:
    Mr. Fawles!
    Just one more question!

    When you said, "with Dahlia",
    do you mean the diamond is
    still missing...?
   
    Along with the body of
    Dahlia Hawthorne?

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...

    Man oh man...
    Angels these days.

[Background: black with Fawles sprite]

Mia:
    (And Fawles takes the fall...
    And gets a one-way ticket
    to Death Row...)

    (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]
[Diamond
    Type: Other
    Received from Terry Fawles]


Armando:
    The training wheels come off
    now, Mia!  You've got to
    strike while the iron is hot!

    That's one of my rules.
    Remember it.
