Title1 1


Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4

That was... no accident... I was drugged... with sleeping pills... I was murdered... by that person... That's why... I took... my revenge... It's only fair... Isn't it... ...Ini?


Maya:
I finally get to see you again, and...

Phoenix:
It's not your fault. You didn't do it.

Maya:
No, I... I did it... I killed that person.

Phoenix:
But that wasn't you.

Maya:
It doesn't matter. It might as well have been me.

Phoenix:
(I can't believe something like this happened...The events of that gloomy, rainy afternoon that started this whole mess...keep playing through my mind...)

Episode 2
Reunion, and Turnabout

June 16, 3:34 PM
Wright & Co. Law Offices


???:
What depressing rain... Do you understand how depressed that makes me!? Do you!?

Phoenix:
Uh, I guess...

???:
But actually, more than being depressed, I'm angry. Angry at that weather girl on TV. "I think our little rainy spell will take a break with a day of sun!"...is what that girl said! I'd stake my life on it!

Phoenix:
Well, it's the weather...

???:
But that's why I didn't bother to bring an umbrella today. What nerve, calling herself a weather girl! She's going to hear about my $1500 suit!

Phoenix:
Um... About your case... Unless you're planning on suing the weather girl...?

???:
... I'm sorry. I thought that before we got down to business, we could have some friendly chatter. My name is Dr. Turner Grey. I'm a surgeon.

Phoenix:
(Remind me never to end up under his knife...)

Grey:
I'm here today because of this incident.

Phoenix:
"Malpractice at Grey Surgical Clinic. Fourteen In-Patients Lose Their Lives!" ...Oh. You're... the doctor at...?

Grey:
It's really quite upsetting. Did you hear me!? UPSETTING!

Phoenix:
Yes, yes, I heard you. I agree, it's quite upsetting, Dr. Grey.

Grey:
The one that screwed up was that nurse! It was her that got the medications mixed up and killed those 14 patients! And yet! Now listen good! And yet! That nurse had the nerve to go and die before admitting to her wrongdoing! She didn't even offer any sort of explanation to me! And this is the kicker! She up and has herself a grand ol' accident and crashed her car! Smash! Crunch! Instantly transforming her car into the accordion model!


Phoenix:
(That's right... About a year ago, all the tabloid shows were talking about it. Fourteen victims of medical malpractice and the nurse's mysterious fatal accident. There were rumors that Dr. Grey had actually caused that crash. People said it was to forever hide the person responsible for the malpractice incident.)


Grey:
Why would I...? Now, I'm just going to say this once -- Why on Earth would I want to kill that nurse? She's the one who killed those 14 patients! Not me!

Phoenix:
I think you need to take a deep breath, doctor, and focus... More to the point, this case is over a year old. Why bring it up now...?

Grey:
That's simple! Because the situation is slipping out of my grasp. This just won't do. My clinic isn't seeing nearly as many patients nowadays. Do you understand what that means!? It means they're not coming to my clinic!

Phoenix:
(You don't say...? If it were me, I don't think I'd want to go either.) So... what would you like me to do about it...?

Grey:
I want you to help me prove I'm innocent.

Phoenix:
Um, you do realize I'm a lawyer, not a private investigator, right?

Grey:
No, this is something only you can do.

Phoenix:
...?

Grey:
Maya Fey. You know this girl, correct?

Phoenix:
...! (Maya! Why would he know her name...!?)

Grey:
I heard you were working under her for a little while.

Phoenix:
Well, yes... I mean... Hey, wait a second here! I worked UNDER her!?

Grey:
Yes. Am I wrong? She told me, so I'm not quite sure if...

Phoenix:
Well, we worked a few trials together. But she went back to her hometown to undergo more training.

Grey:
Ah, yes, I heard. It must be lonely for you.

Phoenix:
Wh-What!? Wait... I'm not...!

Grey:
She must be an extraordinary girl to handle such rigid training.

Phoenix:
Huh?

Grey:
I have an acquaintance who knows a lot about these mystical sorts of things. She's the one who introduced me to Ms. Fey.

Phoenix:
(Is Maya... really that famous...?)

Grey:
And I've already set up an appointment.

Phoenix:
For what?

Grey:
What else!? A channeling! I'm going to have her call the spirit of that nurse that went and got herself killed!

Phoenix:
O-Oh. (Maya... I wonder what she's up to right now...)


Maya:
(Changed from [We, the women of the Fey family, have always been spirit mediums.] in the original release) It's because the power to communicate with spirits flows strongly through us.


Phoenix:
(That's what she told me... I guess she's learned to accept her responsibilities and become an adult...)

Grey:
Not counting training, this will be her first time channeling a spirit, so she gave me one condition before accepting my request.

Phoenix:
A condition...?

Grey:
The condition is you, Mr. Wright. She said that she wouldn't do the channeling without first seeing you again.

Phoenix:
Me...?

Grey:
And that is why I've searched you out! You want to see her too, don't you!?


Phoenix:
(And so... that is how I ended up visiting Maya's hometown with the doctor...)


June 19, 1:25 PM
Kurain Village


Phoenix:
(So this is Kurain Village; Maya's hometown.)

???:
...

Phoenix:
W-Why, hello there.

???:
...

Phoenix:
Hmm... What an odd little girl.

???:
Hey! Wait up, Pearly!!

Phoenix:
(Hm? Someone else is coming this way...)

???:
Niiiiiiiick!

Phoenix:
M-Maya. How are you...? It's good to see you again.

Maya:
Wow, I didn't think you'd really show up!

Phoenix:
It's not that big a deal. You made it sound like you were soooo far away.

Maya:
Well, maybe I exaggerated... just a little.

Phoenix:
It was only 2 hours by train. If I had known you were this close, I'd have visited more.

Maya:
No! You're not allowed. I already decided, you know. Until I become an adult, I have to work hard and be strong by myself...

Phoenix:
Oh... well... Anyway, congratulations. I'm glad to hear training is going well for you.

Maya:
Heh, heh...

After clearing all Talk options:

Maya:
Well, Nick, I've got to get going. It's about time for the channeling to start.

Phoenix:
Huh? Oh, yeah...

Maya:
I'm doing the channeling in my house, so come on in, OK? After I'm done, we can grill up some juicy burgers!

Phoenix:
Alright. Good luck, Maya.

Maya:
Thanks!

Phoenix:
(Well... At least she's still the same perky Maya.)


June 19
Fey Manor
Meditation Room


Grey:
Ah, Mr. Wright. I'm so glad you showed.

Phoenix:
Some nice weather we're having today. Aren't you happy?

Grey:
No, not at all. That stupid weather girl made the wrong call again. "It will rain cats and dogs today!" she said with a straight face. I can't believe they allow such misguided reports on the public airwaves!

Phoenix:
(Looks like talking about the weather with this guy is just asking for punishment...)

Grey:
...But anyway, this is a splendid manor.

Phoenix:
(No argument there... It's hard to believe that this is Maya's house, though...)

Grey:
I was given a guidemap to this building. Here, Mr. Wright. I have a copy for you too.

Guidemap added to the Court Record.


June 19
Fey Manor
Channeling Chamber


Phoenix:
(Wow... It's such a strange atmosphere in here... These flickering lights... I guess they're candles...)

???:
Good sir! Who might you be...?

Phoenix:
Aaah! I-I'm, uh, my name is Phoenix Wright...

???:
Oh... You must be that good sir...

Phoenix:
("Good sir"...? Is she talking about me?)

???:
You are a lawyer, are you not, good sir? I have heard much about you from Mystic Maya.

Phoenix:
Is that so? ("Mystic" Maya...?)

???:
I am Mystic Maya's aunt, Morgan Fey.

Phoenix:
N-Nice to meet you.

Morgan:
Ah, I had wanted to speak with you about a certain incident, good sir. It would seem that perhaps you ask too much of Mystic Maya in performing your duties. Most unbecoming, I'm afraid.

Phoenix:
Huh?

Morgan:
Don't tell me you have already forgotten? That was it not for Mystic Maya and her assistance, you would surely not have won...

Phoenix:
(First a girl that runs away, and now an old lady who says I stink at doing my job... When did I become the poster boy for "How Not to Make a First Impression"...?)

Morgan:
The past is the past though. Let us speak of the present now.

Phoenix:
...Ah, thank you...

After clearing all Talk options:

Morgan:
... Oh, yes. I wonder if you have yet to meet Pearl, good sir.

Phoenix:
Pearl?

Morgan:
She is an adorable, angelic young girl.

Phoenix:
Oh, that odd...

Morgan:
She is my daughter. Now then, what was it you were about to say...?

Phoenix:
Wh-What a cute daughter you have... Ahaha...

Morgan:
A pure heart that knows not of the evils in this world is a powerful thing, good sir. Please refrain from affiliating with her, I request.

Phoenix:
(Well, it's not like I had the chance to anyway...)

Morgan:
I must insist and stress that you not let it occur.

Phoenix:
Okay, okay, I get it!


June 19
Fey Manor
Winding Way


Phoenix:
(Wow. This garden is really breath-taking. Someone put a lot of love into it. What is that over there...? ...Is that an incinerator? It looks a little out of place in a garden like this...)


June 19
Fey Manor
Side Room


Phoenix:
(So this is... the Side Room. Looks like it's more of a break room. There is bedding spread out on the floor. It looks like someone's sleeping in one. I shouldn't disturb them...)


Winding Way (after visiting Side Room and clearing all Talk options in Fey Manor - Channeling Chamber)

???:
Hey! You! Hold on, now! This gal's got a few questions to ask!

Phoenix:
(Hmm... I'm sure I've heard that southern accent somewhere before...)

???:
Oh, well I'll be! It's Mr. Phoenix Wright! How ya been!? Haven't seen you in, what, a year!?

Phoenix:
Um... You... are... uh...

Lotta:
Oh, that's right! This ain't no time to be wastin' time! The channeling's about to get started!

Phoenix:
Is it that time already!?

Lotta:
We all should hurry up and get to the Meditation Room. ...What are you waiting around for!? Come on!

Phoenix:
(Lotta Hart, huh? I've been judging her harshly because of that case, but, I guess looking back, we had some good times, too...)


June 19
Fey Manor
Meditation Room


Morgan:
We will now begin the channeling. Mystic Maya and honored guest, please proceed into the Channeling Chamber.

Grey:
With this, I can finally swat all those pesky flies, once and for all! You hear me!? They won't be able to say a single bad thing about me after this! You would love to hear them apologize, wouldn't you? Wouldn't you, Mr. Wright!?

Phoenix:
Me!? Oh, uh, yeah, I sure would.

Morgan:
Mystic Maya, do you have the Channeling Chamber key?

Maya:
Yup, right here.

Morgan:
That is most satisfactory. That key is one-of-a-kind, so please take care of it well.

Maya:
It'll be fine, Aunt Morgan. I won't lose it, trust me! OK, Dr. Grey. Let's get started.

Grey:
Finally! Let's go!


*click*


Morgan:
Now let us wait patiently out here for them. Please have some lovely bitter green tea and jaw-droppingly large strawberry desserts...

Lotta:
Hold on, now, granny!

Morgan:
...Granny?

Lotta:
How come we ain't allowed in that room!?

Morgan:
Dear madam, you have an "impressive" grasp of English. From where did you learn it?

Lotta:
What!? I'm from the heart of the heartland!

Morgan:
Is that so? Then I humbly request that you return to this "Heart of the Heartland".

Lotta:
Wh-What are ya...?

Morgan:
This is Kurain Village. If you can not follow our traditions and rules, we request that you leave!

Lotta:
...! ... Sorry.

Phoenix:
(Wow. She shut Lotta up! Now THAT's impressive!)

Morgan:
Now then, let us wait.


*BANG*


Lotta:
Hey now! Wh-What was that just now!?

Phoenix:
(It came from inside the Channeling Chamber...)

*BANG*


Lotta:
Hey! Th-That's a gunshot!

Morgan:
E-Excuse me!?

Lotta:
I've heard that sound before. It's a gunshot! I'd bet my afro on it!

Phoenix:
(M-Maya! Maya's in there!)

Lotta:
Yeah! Now that's what I call being a man!

*SLAM* *SLAM* *CRASH!*


Phoenix:
D-Dr. Grey!!

*klik*


???:
...I... ...I was... murdered...

Phoenix:
M-Maya?

???:
That man... ...murdered me... ...so I killed... him...

Phoenix:
Wh-What!?

*klik*


Phoenix:
Lotta! At a time like this!?

Lotta:
Times like this are perfect for snapping up shots! But anyway... what's going on here!? This gal... Is she... ...Maya!?

Step away from there!

Morgan:
Please leave this area to me. Go quickly and inform the police!

Phoenix:
But, but...

Morgan:
Hurry! Before there are more victims here!

Lotta:
Hey, let's go, City Boy! Leave this to the granny!


June 19
Kurain Village


Phoenix:
(My cell phone doesn't get reception way out here... So I ended up using the phone booth to call the police...)

Lotta:
And...?

Phoenix:
They're on their way.

Lotta:
That's good. Lawdy, I saw a genuine "mysterious phenomenon"...

Phoenix:
(She seems really on edge because of all this... Not that I blame her... I'm scared to death by what's going on...)


June 19
Fey Manor
Meditation Room


Morgan:
Ah, Mr. Wright.

Phoenix:
Ms. Fey! How's, um... Mystic... Maya?

Morgan:
She has returned to "this world". The Spirit Severing Technique was successful.

Phoenix:
Let me see her, please!

Morgan:
She is still unconscious. I humbly request that you wait outside for her recovery.

Phoenix:
(Guess I just have to wait... *sigh*)

Gumshoe:
The police are here! Sorry to keep you waiting! Huh? ...You again!?

Phoenix:
What are you doing all the way out here, Detective Gumshoe?

Gumshoe:
It's actually kinda funny. I was in the area for a business trip, pal. Well, time to check out the crime scene. I'll have to question everyone here later on, so just sit tight, alright?

Phoenix:
(Why is he grinning at me...?)

Morgan:
Shall I show you to the scene of the crime, Detective Gymshoe?

Gumshoe:
Um... My name isn't Gymshoe...

Phoenix:
(The two of them went into the Channeling Chamber... I guess all I can do for now is see what everyone else has to say...)


June 19
Kurain Village


Lotta:
...

Phoenix:
(She's probably scared out of her wits after having a murder take place right near her.) Lotta?

Lotta:
GAWDDON'TLETITBEMENEXT!

Phoenix:
Eek! Don't scare me like that!

Lotta:
What do you mean!? Yer the one scaring me! If I weren't so tough, you'd have another dead body on yer hands -- mine!

Phoenix:
Did you see or notice anything that stuck out at you?

Lotta:
Nah... Well, maybe one thing...

Phoenix:
What is it!?

Lotta:
Turns out my poor stomach's not good at handlin' this kind of thing.

Phoenix:
Huh-what?

Lotta:
Curses and ghosts and stuff comin' back to get ya... This is just too much, I say.

Phoenix:
What is too much?

Lotta:
Being an occult photographer. That's some scary stuff, so I think I'm gonna try being a celebrity photographer, now.

Phoenix:
Going after photos more within your reach from now on? More glamour, less gore?

Lotta:
...

Phoenix:
What's up?

Lotta:
Oh, yeah!

Phoenix:
Wh-What is it?

Lotta:
I took some hot pictures earlier!

Phoenix:
Huh?

Lotta:
Remember!? I took some pictures at the murder scene inside!

Phoenix:
(Ack! She did! Two even!)

Lotta:
"The Séance Murder"... I sure like the ring of that. It'll be a sensational story!

Phoenix:
L-Lotta!

Lotta:
Sorry, but my journalistic sense is burnin' inside me! Hate to cut and run, but I'm headin' back in! Gotta beat those cops to the scoop of the century! UWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAhahahahahahahahahahaha... ...

Phoenix:
(I don't know who's scarier... Lotta or the spirits... And why does it feel like we've been through this before...?)


June 19
Fey Manor
Channeling Chamber


Phoenix:
(The police are busily running here and there, and I don't see Maya anywhere...)

Gumshoe:
H-Hey, you! Don't touch anything!

Phoenix:
Look, I really need to ask you some questions!

Gumshoe:
Umm... Don't look at me like I'm some sort of uncaring jerk... Tell you what, pal. I'll let you ask me a few questions, alright?


June 19
Fey Manor
Side Room


Phoenix:
(Hmm, I'm pretty sure there was someone sleeping here earlier...)

???:
Like, how can I help you?

Phoenix:
Ack! Ah, I'm, uh... That is... I...

???:
Um, like, so isn't it about time to start?

Phoenix:
Huh? Time to start what?

???:
You know, like, the channeling!

Phoenix:
Channeling...? Oh, oh, oh, oh!! No, actually, the situation has kind of changed...

???:
Huh? Like, what do you mean?

Phoenix:
(Changed from [Please stay calm, but... a murder has taken place!] in the original release)

???:
... Um, so, like... A murder is that thing where, like, one person kills another, right?

Phoenix:
Yes! A person has killed another person!

???:
Oh, that's... Uh... What are the words I'm looking for...? It's like... ...like totally a bummer.

Phoenix:
...Yeah... (After all that effort, that's all she had to say?)

???:
Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot to, like, introduce myself.

Ini:
My name is Ini Miney. Um... At the college, I'm researching and studying "parapsychology".

Phoenix:
"Parapsychology"?

Ini:
That's right. Um... I think people, like, usually call it, "occult studies" or something. Like supernatural phenomenon, ESP and psychic powers. That sort of stuff.

Phoenix:
(That's pretty out there...) I'm Phoenix Wright, attorney at law.


June 19
Fey Manor
Winding Way


Phoenix:
(There's no one here... as usual.) Ack! ...H-Hey... How are you?

Pearl:
...

Phoenix:
You're Pearl, right?

Pearl:
...

Phoenix:
(Hmm. Silent as ever... ...? What's that she's got in her hand? I've seen it somewhere before...)


After clearing "Any ideas" Talk option in Kurain Village and clearing all Talk options in Fey Manor - Channeling Chamber and Fey Manor - Side Room:

June 19
Fey Manor
Meditation Room


Morgan:
Oh, dear madam... You have such impeccable timing.

Ini:
Like, what's all the buzz?

Gumshoe:
Ahem. Alright everyone, listen up! You too, pal! I'm going to give you all a brief update! Right now, it looks like the investigation's not going to be done until real late...

Morgan:
That is a terrible shame. I propose that everyone sleep here under the roof of the Fey Manor tonight.


Phoenix:
(What a mess. I can't believe how crazy this day turned out... Maya was arrested and taken away by the police. And I don't see myself getting any sleep tonight...)


June 20, 8:02 AM
Fey Manor
Meditation Room


Phoenix:
(*yawn* Uuugh... Morning... I guess I must have nodded off at some point... I hope Maya's OK. I should hurry and get to the Detention Center, ASAP!)


June 20, 10:34 AM
Detention Center
Visitor's Room


Maya:
N... Nick! Nick! I...!

Phoenix:
Maya!

Maya:
What am I going to do!? I never imagined it would turn out like this!

Phoenix:
Calm down, Maya! Take deep breaths. (Come to think of it, the first time I met her... It all started right here, in this detention center...)

Maya:
I finally... I finally get to see you again, and...

Phoenix:
It's not your fault. You didn't do it.

Maya:
No, I... I did it... I killed that person.

Phoenix:
But that wasn't you.

Maya:
It doesn't matter. It might as well have been me. I was too weak... and I... I couldn't control the spirit's power, so...

Phoenix:
(I don't want to bring up the case quite yet, but...)

Maya:
...You don't have to be nice to me. I understand.

After clearing all Talk options:

Phoenix:
... (...I guess this is about all the information I'm going to gather for today...) I'll be back later, Maya. In the meantime, please make sure you prepare it, OK?

Maya:
Huh? "It"? What is "it"?

Phoenix:
The document requesting me to be your attorney, of course.

Maya:
...! But...

Phoenix:
What's wrong?

Maya:
Are you sure? I mean, I'm guilty! I'm a murderer!

Phoenix:
No one's decided that yet.

Maya:
But I did! I killed that person... with these... two hands...!

Phoenix:
That's enough, Maya.

Maya:
It's hopeless! If you defend me, you'll lose, I'm sure...

Phoenix:
Stop it!

Maya:
... ...Help me... Nick, help me... I'm scared...

Phoenix:
Don't worry, I will. When is the trial?

Maya:
It sounds like tomorrow.

Phoenix:
(As usual, zero prep time...) Alright. I'm going now.

Maya:
Wait.

Phoenix:
...?

Maya:
This jewel... This is called a Magatama. It's a magical charm and it's always protected me. Give this to Pearly... And I'm sure she'll lend you her spiritual powers.

Magatama received from Maya.


June 20
Wright & Co. Law Offices


Phoenix:
Phew. It feels like I've been gone forever. But it's only been one day... (Oh, that's right!) Where's that newspaper Dr. Grey brought the other day...? ...Ah, here it is. Right on top of my desk. (This is the only thing he left behind that's going to be of any help...)

Newspaper Clipping 1 added to the Court Record.


After visiting Wright & Co. Law Offices or Kurain Village:

June 20
Detention Center
Visitor's Room


Phoenix:
(Maya must still be in questioning... I hope the detectives are taking it easy on her, but... these kinds of cases aren't taken lightly. I guess I'll come back later.)


June 20
Kurain Village


Phoenix:
(I have to save Maya, no matter what! It's her life on the line! What in the world happened in that room yesterday?)


June 20
Fey Manor
Meditation Room


Phoenix:
(The Meditation Room nurtures all mediums young and old. Even mediums in training, I'd wager. But it's pretty deserted today... ...probably because of the murder yesterday...)


June 20
Fey Manor
Channeling Chamber


Phoenix:
It looks like Detective Gumshoe isn't here today... I should take this chance and thoroughly check this room. If I'm lucky, I might uncover a clue or two...

Morgan:
Oh, Mr. Wright.

Phoenix:
Good morning.

Morgan:
I am on my way to go meet Mystic Maya, and I thought to bring her some items to make her feel more at home. Namely, tea so bitter you lose your tongue and jaw-droppingly large strawberry desserts.

Phoenix:
I'm sure Maya will be very grateful...

Morgan:
That's "Mystic Maya", good sir!

Phoenix:
(Urk. She is one scary lady.)

Morgan:
Oh, dear, sweet Mystic Maya... Pearl wept constantly for you last night, as did I.

Phoenix:
(I know it's important for me to search the site, but I should ask her some questions too, while I have the chance...)

After clearing all Talk options and examining folding screen:

Morgan:
Well, then, I do believe it is time for me to take my leave.

Phoenix:
Alright. Please tell Maya I said hi.

Morgan:
What was that!?

Phoenix:
Uh, I mean, Mystic Maya.

Morgan:
I will tell her.

Phoenix:
(...*sigh*)

Phoenix:
(Little Pearl isn't here today... Maybe she's at school?)


June 20
Fey Manor
Side Room


Ini:
Oh, hey! Like, you're that guy from yesterday... The, uh, dentist guy...

Phoenix:
No, no, I'm a lawyer.

Ini:
That's right! Um... Mr. Smith, Esquire.

Phoenix:
...That's "Wright". Wait, I mean, you're wrong. My name is "Wright".

Ini:
"Smith", "Wright"... Well, I got, like, three letters, at least.

Phoenix:
(I don't think she gets the point...) Anyway, why are you here?

Ini:
So, like, I study this thing called "parapsychology" at this college and...

Phoenix:
Um, you told me about that yesterday. The sesame allergy, too. What I'd really like to know is why you're still here today?

Ini:
Oh! So, like, that's what you meant! Like, you shoulda been more, like, clear about it!

Phoenix:
S-Sorry. My bad.

Ini:
No, it's OK. Like, it's really...

Phoenix:
...

Ini:
...?

Phoenix:
...That's it? Why'd you stop mid-sentence!?

Ini:
Did I? ...So, like... what was I talking about again...?

Phoenix:
... (If Lotta ever wanted another "genuine mysterious phenomenon", it's right here.)


After clearing all Talk options and examining folding screen in Fey Manor - Channeling Chamber, and clearing "The victim" Talk option in Fey Manor - Side Room:

Pearl:
...

Phoenix:
Ack! Y-You surprised me!

Pearl:
...

Phoenix:
And how are you today?

Pearl:
...

Phoenix:
(Hmm... I guess she isn't open to friendly chatting... Huh? She's still holding something in her hand... ...It looks like the same thing she had yesterday...)

Phoenix:
Oh yeah. Maya said to give this to you...

Pearl:
...

Phoenix:
(Ack! I'm in trouble now!! If Morgan sees us like this, I'll be the next one they're channeling...)

Pearl:
Th-That's... That's Mystic Maya's...

Phoenix:
...Huh!? (Sh-She actually spoke!)

Pearl:
Who are you...?

Phoenix:
I-I'm Phoenix Wright. I, uh, worked with Maya...

Pearl:
...Y-You worked with Mystic Maya...? You... You're Mr. Nick, right?

Phoenix:
...Uh, excuse me? (I bet I know who she picked "Nick" up from...)

Pearl:
I know who you are. You're... You're Mystic Maya's... "special someone"...

Phoenix:
WH-WH-WH-WHAT!?

Pearl:
So then... Of course! You're going to help Mystic Maya, aren't you? That's what you're going to do, right?

Phoenix:
W-Well, yeah... I will...

Pearl:
Oh wow... It's like a beautiful fairy tale! That earnest look shining brightly in your eyes... It must be true love...

Phoenix:
...Wh-What!? (Why am I being boiled into a bright red lobster by this little kid!?)

Pearl:
I'm so jealous of Mystic Maya! Ah, what a wonderful relationship...

Phoenix:
W-Wait... I... uhh... I mean... We aren't... Things aren't like...

Pearl:
Hee hee, I can tell you're a good person. Alright, Mr. Nick! I may be small, but I'm going to help you in any way I can!

After clearing all Talk options:

Pearl:
Um, Mr. Nick...?

Phoenix:
Yes, Pearls? I can call you that, right? You're too cute to just call you Pearl.

Pearl:
Sure, Mr. Nick... Umm... Are you sure it's OK for me to have this Magatama?

Phoenix:
Yeah, it's OK. I was told to give it to you.

Pearl:
But, I can't accept something like this! ...All I really should do is charge this Magatama with spiritual energy...

Phoenix:
Spiritual energy?

Pearl:
Please take this. I'm sure it will be helpful.

Phoenix:
...What do you mean?

Pearl:
It will let you see people's secrets.

Phoenix:
See people's... secrets...?

Pearl:
Yes. ...If it's alright with you, I would like to accompany you for a little while. I can explain the Magatama's power to you when we meet someone hiding a secret.

Fey Manor
Meditation Room


Gumshoe:
Hey, it's you, pal! So you're going to be her lawyer, I bet.

Phoenix:
Yes.

Gumshoe:
Oh... I really feel bad for you, pal. Just this once, I wish I could be on your side.

Phoenix:
Detective Gumshoe...

Gumshoe:
Yeah, but I shouldn't be saying that kind of stuff to you. Hey! You're a cute kid.

Pearl:
...

Gumshoe:
Ha ha ha. I'm not scary. Honest!

Phoenix:
(Wow, I never knew Gumshoe liked kids...)

Gumshoe:
H-Hey! I know! I'll show you something cool! How's this? It's a real, genuine pistol...

Phoenix:
D-Detective Gumshoe!! What are you doing showing her something that dangerous!

Gumshoe:
Oh, sorry...


June 20
Fey Manor
Side Room


Phoenix:
Hello again. We seem to be seeing a lot of each other today.

Ini:
Aww, she's, like, tooootally cute! Is she, like, your daughter?

Phoenix:
W-What!? NO! (How old do you think I am!?)

Phoenix:
Please, tell me all you know about Dr. Grey.

Ini:
My... My sister's name was Mimi Miney. She was, like, a nurse at Dr. Grey's clinic.

Phoenix:
(That's what I thought...)

Ini:
I heard that, like, Dr. Grey was really tough on people. Like, a total slave driver. My sis was, like, always coming home totally wiped out 'cause she was overworked.

Phoenix:
Wiped out? So is that why she fell asleep at the wheel?

Ini:
That guy, like, drove my sis so hard, so, like, that's why the accident happened.

Phoenix:
The one where 14 patients died from malpractice?

Ini:
Yeah, like, I think that was the doctor's fault, too. My sis was pushed by, like, everyone's expectations and, like, her duties and stuff. And that pushed her to her death.

Phoenix:
Oh... I'm sorry...

Ini:
So, like, are we done? I've, like, already told my story to, like, everyone...

Pearl:
Do you understand now, Mr. Nick? This is how a Psyche-Lock works.

Phoenix:
...Well, I don't plan to pry into people's hearts unless I absolutely need to...

Pearl:
The lock this time was pretty easy, but... you might meet people who aren't as willing to give in later on. If you don't have enough proof, be careful and know when to stop trying.


After clearing "Successor" Talk option in Fey Manor - Meditation Room and clearing "The victim" Talk option upon breaking Psyche-Lock in Fey Manor - Side Room:

June 20
Kurain Village


Pearl:
Mr. Nick.

Phoenix:
Hmm? What's wrong?

Pearl:
I have never left Kurain Village.

Phoenix:
R-Really? Wow, that's, um, pretty amazing...

Pearl:
You are going to meet with Mystic Maya... aren't you? Please tell her I said hi.

Phoenix:
Hey, wait! (She ran off... Again. Well, I know Ini's secret now, but... I still don't have any idea how I'm going to save Maya. I don't even know if I should go in there with a smile or a straight face... *sigh*)


June 20
Detention Center
Visitor's Room


Phoenix:
(What am I supposed to do!? I'm almost out of time! Can I really do anything? Can I really save her...?)

???:
Sorry to keep you waiting.

Phoenix:
(Huh? Must be Maya...)

???:
It's been a long time, hasn't it, Phoenix?

Phoenix:
...! (That voice...) M-Mia!

Mia:
Even without me being here, it looks like you've learned to stand on your own.


Phoenix:
(Mia... She's Maya's older sister, and my mentor. She was a top-notch defense lawyer, but a certain case forced her into "retirement". But... whenever I'm in trouble, she comes to help, just like this. Her spirit comes back from the other world and borrows Maya's body for a bit...)


Mia:
Phoenix, you can't make that kind of face in front of your client.

Phoenix:
...!

Mia:
A lawyer is someone who smiles no matter how bad it gets, and especially when it's bad.

Phoenix:
Mia...

Mia:
You can't smile at the end if you haven't been smiling the whole way there. In any case, the face you're making now is no face to show a client, Phoenix.

Phoenix:
B-But!

Mia:
So, tell me all about it. I'm going to guess that my sister is in a lot of trouble again...


Phoenix:
(I told her everything about what had happened in the last two days. Mia closed her eyes, deep in thought, while she listened...)


Mia:
...I see...

Phoenix:
Mia... What am I supposed to do?

Mia:
... It's pretty clear what a good lawyer does in this situation.

Phoenix:
A-And that is!? Tell me, please!

Mia:
Believe in your convictions. And fight for the complete acquittal of your client.

After clearing all Talk options and presenting Black Key:

Mia:
... ... You already know everything you need to know. You know what the "key" to this case is... That is enough...

Phoenix:
But... But! How can I win tomorrow without knowing who the real murderer is!? Who... Who could have...?

Mia:
...


Phoenix:
( (Changed from [At the time, I didn't know,] in the original release) but this day was going to end with a turn for the surprising...)


3 PSYCHE-LOCKS


Phoenix:
M-Mia!? Wh-What...!?

Mia:
What's wrong?

Phoenix:
(That's right. Only I can see the Psyche-Locks... Which means... Mia must know something about the real murderer! But for this to be something that she would hide under lock and key from even me... What in the world is going on!?)

To be continued.
