T&T case 3-4 partial script 5/5

Last piece of this. Working on 2-4 next, most likely.

[Witness Testimony: --Who Terry Fawles Saw--]

Fawles:
That day... 4 PM...
I stopped the car.
I was in front of bridge...

She wasn't there...
So, I waited on bridge.

I watched my car from
bridge. I never put no body
in that car!

Finally, one woman came.
She stood front of me.

We talked...
Then she left.

That was... That was Valerie.
Not my Dahlia!

Mia:
Mr. Fawles!
You're covering for her!

Do you think she would do
the same for you...!?

[Objection: Edgeworth]

Edgeworth:
That's enough, Ms. Fey!

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?)

(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--]

Fawles:
1. That day... 4 PM...
I stopped the car.
I was in front of bridge...


2. She wasn't there...
So, I waited on bridge.


3. I watched my car from
bridge. I never put no body
in that car!


4. Finally, one woman came.
She stood front of me.


5. We talked...
Then she left.


6. That was... That was Valerie.
Not my Dahlia!


Armando:
I know it's obvious, but...
he's clearly lying.

He's been cursed...
by Dahlia Hawthorne.

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...

You'll still have to point out
the contradiction anyway.

That's the curse of being
a defense lawyer, I guess...

[Wrap back to statement #1]

[Press statement #1]

[Hold It!]

Mia:
According to the note, the
meeting was supposed to
take place at 4:30.

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?)

(Could it be...
he's hiding something here?)

[Wrap back to statement #2]

[Press statement #2]

[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...

To find out why a woman
betrayed him.

To him, 30 minutes must've
been like a blink of the eye.

[Wrap back to statement #3]

[Press statement #3]

[Hold It!]

Mia:
You were watching the car?

Fawles:
That bridge. Other side is
broken. Nobody can come
from there.

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...)

(...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.

There's a small shrine up on
the mountain, but that's it...

Fawles:
Anyway...! Nobody came...
No car, nothing!

[Wrap back to statement #4]

[Press statement #4]

[Hold It!]

Mia:
Mr. Fawles.
Think carefully now.

Are you certain that it was
Valerie Hawthorne?

Fawles:
Uh. Uh. Uh...

I never lie!
It-It's the truth!

It was... Valerie!
I remembered her face!

Mia:
Wait a minute. If you had
remembered her face...

...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!

She was different!
It was Valerie!

[Wrap back to statement #5]

[Press statement #5]

[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.

[Background: Overhead view of kidnapping]

Fawles:
She said "Someone needed
to take the blame for it"...

"That was all I could
think to do."
She said that.

[Background: court]

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.

But I don't really remember...

Maybe I did...
Maybe I did push her in...

Mia:
...!

Fawles:
It don't matter no more...

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...

[Wrap back to statement #6]

[Press statement #6]

[Hold It!]

Mia:
How can you be so sure!?

It was raining at the time,
and sunset that day was
at 5 o'clock.

It would have already been
pretty dark on that mountain
at 4:30!

Fawles:
...

Mia:
Please Mr. Fawles!
This is your last chance!

You've already taken the fall
once for something you
didn't do!

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...)

(You'll still do whatever is
necessary to protect her...
Won't you, Mr. Fawles?)


[Jump back to wrap-around text]

[Present Witness Photo at statement #4]

Mia:
So when you got to the bridge,
no one had arrived, huh?

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...

I'm sure that you're lying.

Fawles:
Huh!
Uhh...
Wah...

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?

Just look at this photo.
It's perfectly clear.

[Background: Witness Photo]

Mia:
Obviously, the person that came
first would be the one at the
end of the bridge, right?

[Background: court]

Edgeworth:
B-But that's the victim at
the end of the bridge!

Mia:
Precisely my point.
In other words, Mr. Fawles...

You must have arrived at the
bridge after she did.

Fawles:
Nng...
Urkkk... Ahhh...
Ggggaah... Blah...

Mia:
...

Umm, Mr. Fawles.

Please don't get so worked up.
We just want the truth.

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.

Five years ago, me and
Dahlia... We promised each
other...

We swore we wouldn't
betray each other...

She brought a memento...
To represent... our love.

Mia:
A memento...?

Fawles:
Five years ago, I hid it
under base of tree there.

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?

It's quite charming...
but it looks empty.

Mia:
Your Honor!
You heard what my client said.

He arrived at the scene
at 4 o'clock.

But he then left his car
unattended and walked away!

He was gone for approximately
30 minutes!

Edgeworth:
Urk...!

Mia:
With that much time...

[Background: Mia's face]

Mia:
...Dahlia Hawthorne could have
easily hidden the body in the
trunk of his car!

[Background: court]

Edgeworth:
N-N00000!

[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
Indeed...
There certainly was enough
time for it!

Mia:
(I've still got a chance!)

Mr. Fawles!
There's no mistaking it!

Fawles:
.........

Urp!

Mia:
Huh?
Mr. Fawles...!?

[Fawles spits blood]

Fawles:
Th-That's enough...
Please...

Judge:
W-Witness?

Fawles:
I-I promised her...
5 years ago...

If it ever happens...

...that we can't trust
each other no more...
then...

...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...

So I did it...
I... drank... this...

Mia:
No! We are so close!
Just a little more...

I was going to prove
your innocence!

Fawles:
No... Don't want that...
Don't trust... self...

Maybe kill again...
Kill sweet Dahlia... again...

Mia:
Mr. Fawles!

Fawles:
Mr. Ar... Armando...

Th-Thanks...
For the... coffee...

[Thudding noise]

[Background: Mia's face on black]

Mia:
MR. FAAAAAAAAWLES!!!!

[Background: Fawles slumped over the witness stand]

Mia:
And so my first trial ended...
Suddenly, and tragically.

It ended with no winners...
Only losers.

[Background: court in black&white]

Mia:
I ended up with a wound that
cut so deep into my soul,
I thought it'd never heal.

I'm sure it was the same for
the young prosecutor as well.

[Background: black]

Mia:
But one person...

[Background: court in black&white]

Mia:
The true criminal,
Dahlia Hawthorne...

She left the courtroom with
a secret smile on her
demonically sweet face.

[Background: court in color]

Armando:
Unforgivable...
That witch...

Mia:
M-Mr. Armando...

Armando:
We were so close to the
truth. It was right there in
front of us.

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 breaks mug]

Armando:
The only time a lawyer can
cry is when it's all over.

Mia:
M-Mr. Armando...

[Background: fades to black&white]

Mia:
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...

[Background: Phoenix in hospital bed]

Phoenix:
One year later, in this very
same courthouse...

I, myself, got wrapped up in
"that case".

[Background: montage of 3-1 scenes]

[Background: Dahlia testifying in B&W]

Phoenix:
Only after that, did Dahlia
Hawthorne get put on trial
for her crimes.

[Background: Dahlia's testifying-sprite on black]

Phoenix:
The verdict that was
ultimately handed down
to her was...

[Background: gavel pounding in black&white]

[Background: court in black&white]

Phoenix:
"Guilty", of course.

Naturally, when the verdict
was read, she had a perfect,
angelic smile on her face.

[Background: Phoenix in hospital bed]

Phoenix:
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.
