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

From where the previous one left off until just before the first cross-examination of Dahlia (5 Years Ago). This is long because there's two paths through a large chunk of it. And a really adorable Diego&Mia failure scene; it seems the makers really like to reward you for screwing up the MOST OBVIOUS prompts.
[There are two ways to progress: present the scarf or the victim's note at statement #4A]

[Present at statement 4A: scarf]

[Take That!]

Mia:
Witness... I want you to
look at this photo you took.

[Background: witness photo]

It's hard to see in the photo,
but look at the scarf the
victim wore as identification.

[Background: court]

Judge:
Ah, you are talking about
this scarf right here, eh?

Melissa:
Y-Yes! That's it!
The scarf the policewoman
was wearing...

[Background: court]

Mia:
(I've got her now, just
don't mess up...)

[Background: court]


Mia:
...But that's strange.

Just before, in your
testimony, you stated
the following:

"I guess I'm lucky I wasn't
wearing a white scarf."

Judge:
Wh-White?

Mia:
...This is the scarf you
identified as belonging to
the victim.

But it certainly doesn't look
white to me!

Melissa:
Oh...!

[Objection: Edgeworth]

Edgeworth:
Well, it was foggy that doay...
And it was raining as well!

It's not surprising that
she mistook it for white!

[Objection: Mia]

Mia:
Sorry, but not this time.

The witness just confirmed
that this was the victim's
scarf!

Judge:
Yes, but...
What's the significance...?

It's true that the scarf
doesn't look white, but...

Mia:
There's only one explanation
for this mix-up!

The reason why the witness
thought the scarf was
white is...

[
Prompt for Evidence: victim's note or anything else]

[Present wrong evidence at prompt]

[Take That!]

Mia:
Here's the definitive piece of
evidence that proves it!

Melissa:
...

Edgeworth:
......

Judge:
That...?
That's your definitive piece
of evidence?

Mia:
Yes!
...If my thinking is correct.

Edgeworth:
Well then.
We have one mystery solved!
The answer is simple.

Ms. Fey's thinking is wrong.
...That's all there is to it.

Mia:
Huh?

Armando:
Please, Kitten.
You've got to do something...
You're killing me over here.

Judge:
Ms. Fey, I've got a definitive
penalty to reward you for your
definitive piece of evidence.

[Penalty: 30 percent]

Mia:
(Well, that wasn't what I
was expecting...)


Judge:
Well... Do you have
evidence or not?

Perhaps you can tell us about
why the witness thought the scarf was white, eh?

[Prompt again]

[Present at prompt: victim's note]
[Take That!]

Mia:
...Witness.
Have you ever seen this note?

Melissa:
N-Note...?
I, err... No, never...

Judge:
It's top-secret evidence.
There's no reason that you
would have.

Mia:
Hmm, I wonder about that...

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

Mia:
This note shows Mr. Fawles's
instructions to the victim
regarding their meeting.

It says...
"Wear white scarf for
identification."

Edgeworth:
White... Scarf...?
AAAAAAH!!!

Mia:
Witness!
You KNEW what this note said!

[Background: Mia's face]

Mia:
There's no other possible
reason for you to mistake
the scarf's color!

[Skip to the next scene]

[Present at statement 4A: victim's note]

[Take That!]

Mia:
...It's true. Mr. Fawles did
give instructions to Valerie
Hawthorne about their meeting.

The note that she left said:
"Wear white scarf for
identification."

Judge:
Yes, what about it...?

Mia:
Isn't it obvious!?
Doesn't it strike you as odd!?

That note was a secret piece
of evidence! How is it that
the witness knows about it!?

Melissa:
Ahh...!

[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
Order! Order!
Hmm... It is odd, isn't it?

Well, Mr. Edgeworth!?

Did you show top-secret
evidence to the witness...?

Edgeworth:
Y-Your Honor...
I certainly never gave anyone
permission to do such a thing.

Mia:
In that case, the only way the
witness could know about the
note would b--

Melissa:
J-Just a moment!

Of course... Of course I
didn't know about the note!

It's just...
I saw it when it happened.
...With my own eyes.

[Background: Witness Photo]

When the victim went to
see the killer...

She used her own scarf
to signal him.

[Background: court]

That's why... That's why I
assumed that the signal was
a white scarf.

Judge:
Hmmm...
I suppose that makes sense.

Mia:
(Come on, Mia!
You can't let her weasel
out of it that easily!)


...Witness!
Sorry, but your explanation
isn't going to work here.

Melissa:
B-But why!?
It-It's true!
That's what I saw!

Mia:
Impossible. There's no way you
could have seen the victim use
a white scarf to signal him!


[Prompt for Evidence: scarf or anything else]

[Present wrong evidence at prompt]

[Take That!]

Mia:
Here's the definitive piece of
evidence that proves it!

Melissa:
...

Edgeworth:
......

Judge:
That...?
That's your definitive piece
of evidence?

Mia:
Yes!
...If my thinking is correct.

Edgeworth:
Well then.
We have one mystery solved!
The answer is simple.

Ms. Fey's thinking is wrong.
...That's all there is to it.

Mia:
Huh?

Armando:
Please, Kitten.
You've got to do something...
You're killing me over here.

Judge:
Ms. Fey, I've got a definitive
penalty to reward you for your
definitive piece of evidence.

[Penalty: 30 percent]

Mia:
(Well, that wasn't what I
was expecting...)


Melissa:
Well? ...Do you finally
believe me?

Mia:
(Come on, Mia! You're
running out of time...!)


[Jump back to this statement]

[Present at prompt: scarf]
[Take That!]

Mia:
You've said several times
in your testimony that the
victim was wearing a scarf...

...A white scarf, correct?

Melissa:
Yes...
Is something wrong...?

Mia:
That's what I'd like to know.
...Ms. Foster.

Have a look at this.
It's the victim's scarf!

Melissa:
Ah...!

Mia:
I'm sure people would disagree
about what to call this color.
...However!

It certainly is not white!

You KNEW what the note said!

Edgeworth:
She knew... The contents
of the note...?
N-NOOOOO!

Mia:
It says, "Wear white scarf
for identification."

[Background: Mia's face]

That's the reason why you
said it was white!

[Background: court]

[Note/Scarf scenes rejoin here.]

[Background: court]

Melissa:
Ugh... Unn... Urgh...!

Mia:
Well, Ms. Foster!?

Melissa:
NOOOOO!

[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
Order! Order! Order!
Mr. Edgeworth! I'm waiting for
an explanation!

Edgeworth:
I'm quite sure this note
wasn't leaked to the public!

Mia:
And yet...!
This witness knew exactly
what the note said!

At the time of the murder,
the number of people that
knew were quite... limited.

Terry Fawles is one.
The person who wrote the note,
Valerie Hawthorne, is another.

And finally...
One more person.

Judge:
Did you say...
"One more person"?

Armando:
That's right... A person that
no one would have suspected...

Have you figured it out,
Kitten?

Mia:
Yup!

The third person that knew
the contents of the note
was...!


[Prompt for Evidence: present Dahlia Hawthorne or anything else]

[Present wrong evidence at this prompt]

[Take That!]

Armando:
...Hang on there, Kitten.

Mia:
What is it, Mr. Armando?

Armando:
Here. I made some special
café con leche for you...
I put in plenty of sugar.

Drink it up before it gets
cold. Don't be shy.

Mia:
Umm...
Why are you doing this?

Armando:
Your brain needs stimulation
Drink some of this and then
think it over again.

Listen. Keep messing up
like that and you're going
to get the judge mad.

Judge:
Ms. Fey!

Don't just stand there
casually drinking coffee!

[Penalty: 30 percent]

Mia:
(Oops...
I think it's too late...)


B-But Your Honor...!
Th-There is one more person!

There is a person besides
Mr. Fawles and the victim that
knew what the note said.

[Jump to this statement]

[Present Dahlia Hawthorne at this prompt]

[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...

"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*...

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.

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!

[Objection: Mia]

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...

...when she fell off of
Dusky Bridge and was lost
in the Eagle River.

However!
Her corpse was never found!

[Objection: Edgeworth]

Edgeworth:
She was declared legally
dead 5 years ago!

As far as the law is
concerned, Dahlia Hawthorne
is officially dead.

[Objection: Mia]

Mia:
But the fact remains that her
body was never recovered!

Dahlia Hawthorne was
14 years old, 5 years ago.

If she were still alive,
she would be 19 now.

...Melissa Foster.

I believe that's the same
age you are!

Melissa:
Ah...!

[Objection: Edgeworth]

Edgeworth:
Even you couldn't...!
Ms. Fey...!
You're not saying...!

Mia:
But I am.
That's precisely what
I'm saying.

This "witness" before us is
the girl that was kidnapped
and killed 5 years ago!

[Background: Mia's face]

Mia:
This girl is in fact
Ms. Dahlia Hawthorne!

Judge:
WHA...
WHAAAAAT!

Armando:
Ha...! Nice work...
That was like tossing a
grenade into a 3-alarm fire!

But unless you can tie all
the loose ends together...

...you're nothing but a
hit-and-run arsonist.

Mia:
I... I understand.

(If I can expose her true
nature, I can turn this whole
case on its head!)

(Now is my chance to make
Mr. Edgeworth squirm...!)


Judge:
Hmm... Hmm... Hmmm...

Witness!
Just who are you anyway!?

Melissa:
I... I... I'm...

Edgeworth:
I didn't think it'd come
to this.

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.

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.

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.

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.

All he wanted was her
testimony, so he made
a little trade.

Edgeworth:
Let me introduce you to...

...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.

She was merely an accidental
witness to a crime...

Mia:
Accidental...?
I don't believe that for
a minute!

For the last 5 years, she's
been playing the role of
victim!

And now we find her acting
suspiciously at another murder
scene!

[Objection: Edgeworth]

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...

...At any cost.

Mia:
H-How dare you!

Edgeworth:
Please, let us take a moment
to think.

Five years ago, this girl was
kidnapped and nearly killed.

Judge:
Hmm...

Edgeworth:
But even worse than that...
5 years later...

...Dahlia Hawthorne lost
something much more
precious. Her big sister.

Ms. Fey must be insane to
even suggest that she
murdered her.

Mia:
Whaaaat!?

[Gavel pounding]


Judge:
...I'm inclined to agree
with the prosecutor's logic.

Ms. Fey!
Do you have any evidence
to back up your assertion!?

What possible reason would
this witness have for killing
her beloved sister!?

Mia:
W-Well you see...

(I thought I was winning,
but somehow he's turned it
around
on me!)


Armando:
Ha...!
I think you need a little
push in the right
direction, Kitten...

The defense is prepared
to present evidence
supporting our claim!

[Background: Everyone blinks in surprise]


Mia:
Ah! That wasn't me!
It was this guy...
This crazy coffee addict...

[Objection: Edgeworth]

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.

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 that me!)


[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
Now then, let's not waste
any more time.
...Ms. Fey.
What motive would this witness
have for murdering her own
sister, Valerie Hawthorne?


[Present evidence: victim's note or anything else]

[Present wrong evidence at this prompt]

Edgeworth:
...What is this?
Is this the defense's idea of
a joke?

Judge:
If so, I certainly don't
get the punch line...
Well? Ms. Fey?

Mia:
Oh, that was...
The rashness of youth!

Judge:
Th-The rashness of youth!?
And what is your point in
furthering such a stereotype!?

[Penalty: 30 percent]

Armando:
That witness stayed hidden
for 5 years, Kitten.

There must be a good reason
for that.

And somehow it must involve
Valerie Hawthorne...

Mia:
(OK, one more time, Mia! You
gotta read the Court Record
more carefully this time!)


[Jump back to here]

[Present victim's note at this prompt]

Mia:
...The story starts after
Terry Fawles escaped.

He called Valerie and
told her he wanted to meet.
This is the note she left...

It says: "Talk to Dahlia.
Tell her this time, the
whole truth must come out."

...Valerie Hawthorne gave
Dahlia a warning.

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.

That's the reason Dahlia felt
she had to kill Valerie...

To keep her mouth shut
permanently!

[Objection: Edgeworth]

Edgeworth:
A terrific story, Ms. Fey!
If you like fiction, that is.

Enlighten the court, Ms. Fey.
What was this secret that
was so important?

Where's your evidence!?

Armando:
Dahlia and Valerie Hawthorne,
and Terry Fawles...

There's only one
important secret that
connects them all...

Mia:
Oh, yes... I know this secret.

...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.

Such as the nature of the
important secret between
the Hawthorne sisters!

Dahlia:
Ugh...!

[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
...Very well.
I'll grant your request for
further testimony.

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?)

(But this will be the last
time you hide behind your
womanly wiles!)


[Witness Testimony: -- 5 Years Ago --]

Dahlia:
Five years ago, I was
kidnapped by Mr. Fawles.

[Background: kidnapping]

The ransom price was a raw
diamond. My sister, Valerie,
brought it to the bridge...

[Background: court]

After she made the exchange
she shot Mr. Fawles in
the arm!

[Background: body falling from bridge]

That's when Mr. Fawles tried
to kill me by shoving me off
the bridge from behind!

I survived, but I was afraid I
might be kidnapped again
for my family's money...

So I decided to change
my identity and start
a new life...

Judge:
Hmmm...

Edgeworth:
...The kidnapping left her
emotionally scarred.

With her sister's help, she
left the Hawthorne family and
started all over again.

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.

...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.

...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.

The fact that the kidnapping
5 years ago was staged!

[Background: black with Armando]

Mia:
(That's right, it was a fake
kidnapping
! Terry Fawles
told us that in the lobby.)


[Background: lobby flashback]

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.

[Background: court]

Mia:
(Yes! That's it!
The fake kidnapping is your
best shot, Mia!)

(That's her secret!)
