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

From the cross-examination of "Five Years Ago" to just before the last testimony + cross-examination.

[Cross Examination: -- 5 Years Ago --]

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


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


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


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


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


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


Armando:
It's the moment of truth
for this witness, too.

Once the truth about this
staged kidnapping comes out...

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!)


[Wrap back to statement #1]

[Press statement #1]

[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!

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.

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?)


[Return to testimony at statement #2]

[Press statement #2]

[Hold It!]

Mia:
I heard the diamond is valued
in the neighborhood 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!!!

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.

Not as a detective,
of course, but as an
individual.

Mia:
By the way, I want to ask
you, Mr. Edgeworth.

Why do you think he wanted
to make the exchange up
there on that mountain?

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.

In a place like that, it
would be easy to tell if
he was being followed.

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...

[Return to testimony at statement #3]

[Press statement #3]

[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...

[Background: Overhead view of kidnapping]

Somehow, I just KNEW
he was going to use it.

[Background: court]

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!

[Return to testimony at statement #4]

[Press statement #4]

[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...

[Background: Overhead view of kidnapping]

Dahlia:
I-I was dazed. I turned to try
and run away, but Mr. Fawles
turned to grab me as well...

As I ran past, he and I locked
eyes for a second, and he gave
me a large, bloodthirsty grin.

[Background: court]

Judge:
B-Bloodthirsty grin...
Oooh...

Dahlia:
And in the next instant...

[Background: Body falling from bridge]

[Background: court]

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...

When I came to, I had been
carried away by the river
to a strange place.

I'll never forget that day.

The crumbling bridge,
nowhere to run...

[Background: Overhead view of kidnapping]

Dahlia:
Then just one little shove
from behind. That was it.

[Background: court]

Dahlia:
Before my sister could
catch me...
...I fell into the river.

[Return to testimony at statement #5]

[Press statement #5]

[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.

[Return to testimony at statement #6]

[Press statement #6]

[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...)

(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.

And you... You think I
k-k-killed her...
There's no way I could!

Judge:
Hmmmmm...!

[Jump back to wrap-around text]

[Present Map at statement #4]

[Objection: Mia]

Mia:
You say that Mr. Fawles pushed
you into the Eagle River...

However, that's hard to
believe.

Dahlia:
B-But it's true!
I felt a push on my back...

I'm certain of it!
It was Mr. Fawles!

Mia:
I'm sorry... I guess I wasn't
clear enough.

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.

[Background: Overhead view of kidnapping]

Mia:
That bridge hasn't changed one
bit in these last 5 years.

[Background: Map with circles for people]

Mia:
If someone had pushed you
from behind as you have
claimed...

[Background: Circles on map move]

Mia:
...instead of being carried
away by the river...

[Background: court]

Mia:
...you would have been
smashed by the bedrock
below!

A most certain death.

Dahlia:
...

Mia:
Do you understand now,
Dahlia Hawthorne?

[Background: Mia's face]

Mia:
The very notion that my client
pushed you from behind
is impossible!

[Background: court]

Dahlia:
...

Aaaaaah!

[Objection: Edgeworth]

Edgeworth:
Your Honor, this event
occurred 5 years ago!

Why, for all we know, the
water level in the river may
have been higher back then.

[Objection: Mia]

Mia:
But it's 40 feet from the
bridge to the river!

A small change in the water
level wouldn't have made a
difference.

Edgeworth:
Ugggh!

[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
Y-You're right! If the events
occurred just as the witness
has testified...

...then the defendent couldn't
have pushed the witness
into the river.

Young lady!
What is the meaning of this!?

Dahlia:
Uuuh!

I... I... I, err...
You see, I...

[Objection: Edgeworth]

Edgeworth:
Just a moment, Your Honor!

It's true that the witness
testified that the defendent
pushed her into the river...

However! She never stated
that she fell from the back
end
of the bridge!

Mia:
What... What do you mean?

[Background: Overhead view of kidnapping]

Edgeworth:
After being shot in the
arm, it's plausible that
Mr. Fawles panicked!

[Background: Map with circles for people]

Edgeworth:
Therefore, he could have
unwittingly pushed her off
the side of the bridge!

[Background: Circles on map move]

Judge:
If that's true, she would
have fallen into the river!

[Gavel pounding]

[Background: court]

Judge:
Well, Miss Hawthorne!?
Is Mr. Edgeworth's explanation
correct...?

Dahlia:
...

Now that you mention it...

I do remember now.
When I fell off the bridge...

...my skirt got caught on one
of the bridge's side wires!

Mia:
You can't be serious!

[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
Order! Order in the court!

Edgeworth:
It seems Ms. Fey's assault
has finally reached its
conclusion.

[Objection: Mia]

Mia:
(Not now, Mia...!
This is no time to retreat!)


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.

"After being shot in the
arm, it's plausible that
Mr. Fawles panicked!"

"Therefore, he could have
unwittingly pushed her off
the side of the bridge!"

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!


[Prompt for Evidence: present Witness Photo or anything else]

[Present wrong evidence at this prompt]

[Take That!]

Mia:
This evidence shows the
fatal error you've made!

Edgeworth:
...
It's a fatal error, alright.

Unfortunately...
The error is yours, not mine.

Mia:
(Uh-oh, here it comes...)

Judge:
Ms. Fey.

At this point in the trial,
I can't just let that pass!

[Penalty: 20 percent]

Mia:
Ouchie.

(Come on, Mia! Take your
time and think it over again!)


[Jump to this statement]

[Present Witness Photo at this prompt]

[Take That!]

Mia:
Your Honor!
All of the answers are
right here in this photo!

[Background: Witness Photo]

Mia:
Take a look at the wires
supporting both sides of the
bridge!

They start at about the
height of a person's waist...

[Background: Mia's face over Witness Photo]

Mia:
It would be impossible to
push someone off from there!

[Background: court]

Dahlia:
NNNNOOOOOO!

[Objection: Edgeworth]

Edgeworth:
B-But let's remember
the side and strength of
the defendant!

Wires like this wouldn't be
a problem for him!

He could have easily picked
up a 14 year old girl and
thrown her over!

[Objection: Mia]

Mia:
So young, and already so
forgetful, Mr. Edgeworth.

Mr. Fawles had been shot
in the right arm.

Judge:
Ah...!

Mia:
And more importantly...

[Background: Overhead view of kidnapping]

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:
GWAAAAAHHH!

[Background: court]

[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
Order! Order!
Wh-What is the meaning
of this!?

Mia:
Dahlia Hawthorne!

You jumped into the Eagle
River intentionally!

Judge:
What...!?!
What is this!?

[Objection: Edgeworth]

Edgeworth:
Indeed! What do you mean
by such a ridiculous remark!?

Dahlia:
Y-Yes! It's ridiculous!

My sister was there
to help me!

She had her gun and handcuffs.
She could have saved me...

[Background: Overhead view of kidnapping]

Dahlia:
Jumping into a raging river
like that...
That would have been suicide!

[Background: court]

[Objection: Mia]

Mia:
Perhaps...
But still, that's exactly
what you did!

You were probably confident
that you could handle
the swift current.

But even more so...

...the witness had a much
more compelling reason for
jumping into the river!

[Objection: Edgeworth]

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!

This is why she risked her
life by jumping into the
rapids of the Eagle River!


[Prompt for Evidence: present Witness Photo or anything else]

[Present wrong evidence at this prompt]

[Take That!]

Edgeworth:
That isn't even worth a reply.

Ms. Fey. I hold you
personally responsible...

...for confusing the court
and causing great emotional
pain to the witness!

Judge:
I have no choice but to
impose a penalty on you.

[Penalty: 40 percent]

Mia:
(This is an easy one, Mia!
What was it she was after...?)

(Even Edgeworth
must have realized it...!)


[Jump back to prompt]

[Present diamond at this prompt]

[Take That!]

Mia:
Five years ago...

...something else disappeared
along with Dahlia that day.

The item that Valerie brought
up the mountain with her...
The 2 million dollar diamond!

Dahlia:
...!

Edgeworth:
AAAAAAHHH!!
N... No...
It-It can't be...!

Mia:
Yes. Dahlia had it all planned
from the beginning!

[Background: Mia's face]

Mia:
The 2 million dollars...
She was going to keep it
all for herself!

[Background: Overhead view of kidnapping]

Mia:
She forced Mr. Fawles to help
her fake the kidnapping...

[Background: Kidnapping]

*BANG!* [Background: Body falling from bridge]

Mia:
At the last minute, she
betrayed him and threw
herself into the river...

...with the ransom tucked away
safely in her backpack...

Edgeworth:
Why that... that's simply
ridiculous!

[Background: court]

[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
Order! Order! Order!

Edgeworth:
Y-Your Honor!
Five years ago, the witness
was only 14 years old!

Do you really think a 14-year
old is capable of such a
demonic plan!?

Mia:
This woman IS a demon.

And there was one more person
who helped make a demon out
of her.

Her sister...
Valerie Hawthorne.

Judge:
Y-You mean the victim was
involved in the kidnapping
plot as well!?

[Objection: Edgeworth]

Edgeworth:
But she was a detective then!
You're saying she participated
in her sister's kidnapping!?

Mia:
Precisely!

I'm sure that it weighed
heavily on her conscience for
the past 5 years.

This is the sole reason
behind the victim's murder.

Judge:
What do you mean by that?

Mia:
On the day of the murder...

...after receiving the phone
call from Mr. Fawles, Valerie
called her sister, Dahlia.

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...

THAT is when you hatched your
demonic plan to kill two birds
with one stone.

A plan that would ensure
neither of your accomplices
to the kidnapping would talk.

And THAT is why...

...you killed your sister,
Valerie Hawthorne!

[Background: Everybody blinks!]

[no name shown]:
...
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...

Naturally...
you have the evidence
to back it up, don't you?

Mia:
Ev-Evidence...?

Dahlia:
Evidence that I planned the
kidnapping, of course.

That at 14, I plotted it with
Mr. Fawles and my sister.

Mia:
W-Well, I...

Dahlia:
And one more thing.

What happened to the
2 million dollar diamond?

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...!

(How can I prove a fake
kidnapping that happened
5 years ago!?)

(I don't even have decisive
proof of Valerie Hawthorne's
murder...)


Judge:
Well it seems...
that we've come to the end.

To be honest, the witness's
behavior does raise certain
suspicions...

However, I am forced to reject
the assertions made by the
defense.

Dahlia:
Of course you are.

[Background: Mia's sprite on black]

Mia:
(Is this it...?
Is it really over...?)

(That girl has made a fool
of me and there's nothing
I can do about it!)


[Background: court]

Armando:
Ha...!

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?

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.

[Background: Body in trunk]

Armando:
She hid her body in the trunk
of Mr. Fawles's stolen car and
then went to meet with him...

[Background: Witness Photo]

[Background: court]

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?

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!)

(Who is the one personwho
can testify to that demon
woman's crimes...?)


[Prompt for Person: present Terry Fawles or anyone else]

[Present wrong person at this prompt]

[Take That!]

Armando:
Listen up.
This is your last chance.

Think it over carefully
one more time.

Mia:
(Relax, Mia! This is easy...!)

[Jump back to this statement]

[Present Terry Fawles at this prompt]

[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...

Only one person that knows
what Dahlia's role in the
kidnapping was...

[Background: Witness Photo]

Mia:
Only one person that can say
whether the person in the
photo is Valerie Hawthorne...

...or whether it was in fact
her younger sister Dahlia
disguised as her.

There's only one person who
can solve this riddle once
and for all...

And that person is...
Terry Fawles!

[Background: court]

[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
Well, Mr. Edgeworth?
What is your take on this?

Edgeworth:
...

Why not?
The prosecution has no
objection.

Judge:
Very well.

Bailiff!
Bring the defendant to the
witness stand!

Mia:
(This is my last chance,
Mr. Fawles...)

My last chance to establish
Dahlia's guilt...)

[Background: Mia's face on black]

Mia:
(You're all I have left!)


[Background: court]

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!

Dahlia died! Five years ago!
Valerie betrayed me!

Mia:
Mr. Fawles...

I don't know what she said
to you 5 years ago, but one
thing is clear.

Dahlia is very much alive.

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.

Two days ago on Dusky
Bridge... who did you meet?

Was it Valerie Hawthorne?
Or was it Dahlia Hawthorne?

Fawles:
Dahlia... Dahlia...
Did you... betray me?

...

Five years ago she promised...
She promised... Never, ever
betray each other...

Dahlia:
Terry...

Fawles:
Dahlia!
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.

My life is in your hands
right now, Terry.

Fawles:
Dah... lia...

[Gavel pounding]

Judge:
I will allow Mr. Fawles to
testify once and once only.

Well then, Mr. Fawles.
Yours will be the final
testimony in this trial.

Fawles:
...

Judge:
Witness!

Fawles:
GAAAAHHH!!!

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.

At least it'll match the way
he's probably feeling right
now...

Darker and bitterer than
Hell itself.

Fawles:
UWAAAAAH...
