Turnabout Goodbyes

It's been, what, 15 years?

About that, yes.

15 years is a long time to wait...

You can't imagine how much I've suffered...

You... suffered?

And now... the perfect opportunity presents itself.

At last... I shall have my revenge!

What!?

...Merry Christmas.

Maya:
Hey, hey, Nick! Do you know if there's any good waterfalls around here?

Phoenix:
Waterfalls...? Dare I ask why?

Maya:
Duh, Nick! Isn't it obvious? I need a waterfall to stand under! Preferably a freezing one!

Phoenix:
... Oh... Is that part of your spirit medium training?

Maya:
Of course! Except, I've been slacking off lately... I need to brave the elements and be forged anew under the rushing spring waters!

Phoenix:
Umm... Okay... I don't know about any falls per se, but Gourd Lake is pretty close...

Maya:
Oh. Darn.

Phoenix:
Sorry, but them's the breaks. Couldn't you just take a cold shower or something?

Maya:
... Good idea!

Phoenix:
(So much for the rushing spring waters...)

TV:
Next in the news... A large, unidentified animal was sighted at Gourd Lake! The town is buzzing with excitement! Locals are calling it "Gourdy" in a tip of the hat to Nessie, the Loch Ness monster. Though its namesake, Nessie, proved to be a hoax... locals are confident their Gourdy is the real deal. ...

Phoenix:
*yawn* Bor-ing. Can't they show real news for a change?

Maya:
Nick?

Phoenix:
?

Maya:
The water pressure's kind of low in that shower.

Phoenix:
... You want more pressure, huh? Why don't you go down to the fire department and have them spray you with the hose?

Maya:
... Good idea, Nick!

Phoenix:
(Apparently, E.S.P. is no aid in detecting sarcasm...)

TV:
We interrupt this program to bring you a special news bulletin! Strange occurrences continue at Gourd Lake... But this time, it's murder!

Phoenix:
(Gourd Lake again?)

TV:
The body of a man was found in the lake early this morning. A suspect was apprehended. Sources inside the police department revealed... that the suspect's name is Miles Edgeworth, age 24. Edgeworth was an up-and-coming prosecution attorney, known for his skill and connections. He was guaranteed a long and rewarding career... has he thrown it all away?

Phoenix:
(...? E-Edgeworth!?) What's going on!? Edgeworth would never do something like--

Maya:
Nick?

Phoenix:
Yipes! M-Maya!

Maya:
The fireman yelled at me when I called him.

Phoenix:
We've got bigger things to worry about than that! They arrested Edgeworth!

Maya:
What? You mean, the prosecutor?

Phoenix:
Yeah, he's a suspect... in a murder!

Maya:
Whaaaaat!? When? Where? Whom? Why? How?

Phoenix:
I-I don't know!

Maya:
Let's go find out, Nick!


December 25
Detention Center
Visitor's Room

Maya:
You know, Nick... We've all been in here one time or another, haven't we?

Phoenix:
I guess it comes with the territory.

Maya:
I'm not sure it's something we should mention to too many people... Aah!

Phoenix:
... Hey! Edgeworth! Come back!

Edgeworth:
What are you doing here!?

Maya:
Nick, I don't think he's in a very good mood.

Phoenix:
Well, he is in detention. Were you in a good mood when you were here?

Edgeworth:
So, you've come to laugh at the fallen attorney? Then laugh, laugh! Well? Why aren't you laughing?

Maya:
Nick... Should we be laughing?

Phoenix:
Nah. It's a trick. Laugh and he'll get mad... or burst into tears. Edgeworth. We don't have so much free time we can spend it coming down here to laugh at you.

Edgeworth:
... Yes you do.

Phoenix:
(Actually, he's right.)

Edgeworth:
... I hoped you wouldn't come. I didn't want you to see me. Not like this.

Phoenix:
(Hey, I didn't want to see you either, believe me.)

(Clearing "Did you do it" "Talk" option leads to:)

Phoenix:
Edgeworth... this is really hard for me to ask... But... you didn't do it, right? Right?

Edgeworth:
... Think what you will. I have only one request.

Phoenix:
Huh?

Edgeworth:
Stay out of this case.

Maya:
Why!? B-but Nick is trying to help you!

Edgeworth:
I know...! I know that! But I don't want your help, okay?

Maya:
!!! Why not?

Edgeworth:
... Look, just go away, and leave me alone!

Maya:
Nick... Mr. Edgeworth did it, didn't he.

Phoenix:
Maya! Let's go investigate elsewhere.

Maya:
But, Nick...


December 25
Gourd Lake Park
Entrance

Maya:
This is where it happened?

Phoenix:
Yeah. Gourd Lake is in the middle of this park.

Maya:
I can see some police walking around in there.

Phoenix:
Questioning people, probably.

Maya:
Hey! Isn't that Detective Gumshoe over there?

Gumshoe:
Well, pal!? There's enough of us here! Anyone found anything?

Police:
S-sorry, sir... Nothing.

Gumshoe:
Idiot! The trial's tomorrow! We need clues, on the double!

Police:
B-but, sir... There weren't any clues... that's why we arrested that attorney, Mr. Edgeworth! It's clear, sir. He's the one who--

Gumshoe:
Shaddup! Just you try saying that again! I'll... er... I'll make you sorry if you do! I mean... just, get outta my face, pal!

Police:
Y-yes, sir!

Maya:
Detective Gumshoe's kinda scary today!

Gumshoe:
Recruits... peh! ... Aah!

Maya:
Eek!

Gumshoe:
Hey, you're that Harry guy! Harry Butz!

Phoenix:
Wright! Phoenix Wright! (Will he ever learn my name!?)

Gumshoe:
And just what are you doing here, pal? Investigating!?

Phoenix:
Huh? Um, well, yes. I suppose.

Gumshoe:
Well, I'm here to help! Ask me anything you want! Bring it!

Maya:
He seems different than usual. I wonder what's up? Umm... Mr. Edgeworth hasn't actually asked us to defend him yet...

Gumshoe:
Huh!? Oh? Y-you don't say...

(Clearing all "Talk" options leads to:)

Police:
Detective Gumshoe, sir!

Gumshoe:
What? Find something!?

Police:
Um, no, sir. Not yet. But there was a call from the precinct. They want to hold an investigation briefing...

Gumshoe:
A briefing? Right! I'm off! Oh... Sorry, pal. I guess you heard. I gotta go. Any last things you want to ask me about before I head back?

Phoenix:
You're not coming back, Detective?

Gumshoe:
Erm... Probably not, pal.

Phoenix:
So, what should we do if we have something to talk to you about...?

Gumshoe:
Ah, right. Here, I'll show you how to get to the precinct. Come down and see me anytime.

Detective Gumshoe gave you directions to the police station.

Phoenix:
Oh, hey! Detective Gumshoe!

Gumshoe:
W-what!?

Phoenix:
Um, we'd like to take a look around in the park. Can we walk around?

Gumshoe:
Yeah! No problem, pal. You got my permission.

Maya:
You know, Nick. I think there's something to be said for talking to people when they're busy.

Phoenix:
Yeah. They don't have time to think about not giving you information...

Maya:
Right! Now, let's get investigating!


December 25
Police Department
Criminal Affairs

Maya:
... Looks like Detective Gumshoe isn't here.

Chief:
Something wrong, miss? Hmm? Turning yourself in? Okay, what did you do? Shoplifting? Larceny? Public indecency...?

Maya:
N-no! None of those things! We're looking for Detective Gumshoe... is he around?

Chief:
Gumshoe? Oh yeah. He's in a meeting right now. I don't think he'll be out any time soon.

Maya:
Okay, we'll come back.

Chief:
You do that. Oh, and go straight home and stay out of trouble. No more shoplifting, you got that?

Maya:
... Do I look like a criminal or something?


December 25
Gourd Lake
Public Beach

Maya:
Wowsers! This is "Gourd Lake"?

Phoenix:
Yup. I'm not sure it warrants a "wowsers," though.

Maya:
Hmm. Probably not. But hey, look at that snack stand!

Phoenix:
"Samurai Dogs"...?

Maya:
I wanna Samurai Dog! Please! I bet they're great!

Phoenix:
With a name like Samurai Dog, how could they not be?

Maya:
They're a little behind the times, though. The kids are all into "The Pink Princess" now. I mean, like, y'know!?

Phoenix:
(Nope.)

December 25
Boat Rental Shop

Maya:
Nick... what is this place?

Phoenix:
A boat rental shop. Closed for Christmas it seems. I guess a murder taking place on one of the boats won't be good for business, either.

Maya:
Boats... I've never ridden on a boat.

Phoenix:
Really? Well, how about we go out on one when the trial is finished?

Maya:
Hey, good idea! You bet!


December 25
Gourd Lake Woods

Maya:
I like it here, Nick. Look... someone's camping!

Phoenix:
They've got guts, camping at the scene of a murder.

Maya:
Hey, hey, Nick! If they were camping here last night, they might know about the murder!

Phoenix:
(That's true...) Good call, Maya. Let's go talk to them.

Phoenix:
This camera has a mic and some sort of attachment. It must take pictures when triggered by a noise.

Maya:
Wow! Cool! Let's try it out! *cough* "Hi, I'm Nick!" ... Maybe I'm not saying it loud enough. "HEY! I'M NICK!!!" ... Huh. NIIIIIIIIII......IIIIIIIIIICK!

Phoenix:
Will you stop that?

Maya:
Maybe it's broken?

Phoenix:
D-don't kick it! Maybe it isn't set up to respond to voices?

Maya:
Well what then? I know!

Phoenix:
The party popper...?

*BANG*

klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik klik

Maya:
... Yep. It responded.

???:
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw! Hey, you! Git yer hands offa' that!

Maya:
Eek!

???:
What in the Sam Hill...!? Look what ya done now! There goes a whole roll of film!

Maya:
Ah? Wha... huh? S-sorry!

???:
Sorry's nice but it don't pay my bills! Y'all know how much a roll of film costs!?

Maya:
I-I'll pay you back!

???:
What were ya'll thinkin' settin' off a party-popper in a place like this?

Maya:
Uh... well...

???:
What! Don't try to play stupid with me just 'cause you think I'm some country bumpkin! Yeah, I know how y'all Yanks think! "I say, those southern folks talk with that exaggerated drawl, why they must be dumb!" Well let me tell you, just because I might be dumb don't mean we all are!

Maya:
N-Nick, help!

???:
And who are you, now? Her chaperone?

Phoenix:
Yeah, uh, no, rather, uhh... we're sort of... friends?

???:
Jus' figure out what y'all are gonna say and say it for bejeezum's sake! Gawd, I'd rather sit through one of papa's drawls than listen to you stutter all day.

Phoenix:
(Oh boy... I guess we should pay her for the film...)

???:
Watch it!

Phoenix:
Yes ma'am. (On second thought, I'll pay later...)

Maya:
I'm really sorry!

Phoenix:
I, er, this is my badge.

???:
Huh? Aren't badges supposed t' be all shiny and impressive? You a cop or something?

Phoenix:
Umm... I'm a lawyer.

???:
Wh-what!? Y'all ain't gonna try and pull one o' them lawsuits on me over that film now? Cause I'll have you know I'm a fighter and I wrassled meaner looking' things'n you!

Phoenix:
N-no, that's not it at all. We're here investigating a murder that took place here, on the lake.

???:
A murder...? ... Sounds cool! Why didn't y'all say that in the first place! Go ahead, ask me anything ya like!

Phoenix:
(Finally! Some cooperation!)

???:
You too. Y'all can come out of hiding now. I won't bite. Hard.

Phoenix:
(Come to think of it, where did Maya get to?)

Maya:
S-sorry... I-I was feeling a little overwhelmed. The culture gap and all...

???:
Never you mind, honey. I kin' talk Yank for ya if... ahem... if it pleases you?

Maya:
Th-thanks. I think I'll be okay.

Lotta:
Great then! I'm Lotta, Lotta Hart, but y'all can call me Lotta! I'm here photographing meteor showers for a research project. Mighty pleased ta meet ya!

Phoenix:
Lotta?

Lotta:
Yeah?

Phoenix:
So, your camera... it triggers on loud explosion noises?

Lotta:
Ayup.

Phoenix:
Actually, the victim in the case we're researching--he was shot with a pistol.

Lotta:
A pistol...?

Phoenix:
Right. Now wouldn't a gunshot make a similar noise to our party popper...?

Lotta:
I guess it would.

Phoenix:
Your camera... didn't get a picture of the murder, did it?

Lotta:
... Hey! Y'all are pretty bright!

Phoenix:
Huh?

Lotta:
I see what yer sayin'... Tell ya what, I'll have a look-see at my film.

Phoenix:
It would have been a photo taken late last night...

Lotta:
I checked 'em once, don't remember if there was anything on 'em though. But what if I got sumtin'! I could be witness to a genuine murder! Yeehaw! I'll go check that film. Y'all come back now, y'hear?

Maya:
She went inside her SUV. I guess we should come back later...

Gumshoe:

Phoenix:
What is it?

Maya:
Oh. Nothing... just, something's been bothering me. ... Could you show me that autopsy report once more? ... ... ... Hey! I-I remember now! This guy! This is a lawyer that was at that office Mia worked at! I met him once when I went there to hang out with Sis!

Phoenix:
That office...? Wait! You mean Grossberg's office?

Maya:
Right! That guy!

Phoenix:
(That was the last name I expected to come up... Maybe I should go talk to him... for old time's sake.)

Grossberg Law Offices

Phoenix:
It's been a while since I was here last. Mr. Grossberg is out as usual.

Maya:
Hey, Nick. Look at the wall.

Phoenix:
(That painting is still missing... Mia must have known about the deal with Mr. Grossberg and Redd White... She kept track of all of White's extortion and blackmail rackets.)

Hey y'all!

Lotta!

Lotta:
Wait up a sec! We got bingo!

Maya:
Bingo...?

Lotta:
My automatic camera took two pictures last night!

Maya:
Hey!

Lotta:
This is them. Take a look!

Phoenix:
Wait...!

Lotta:
See? See? He's shooting him with that pistol!

Phoenix:
I-it looks like that, yes.

Maya:
But you can't really tell who that is shooting.

Lotta:
Yeah, well there was enough fog out there last night t' strangle a bullfrog. But, y'know... Seeing these photos reminded me of something.

Maya:
What...?

Lotta:
I saw the murder happen. I'm a witness!

Maya:
Whaaaaaaa!?

Phoenix:
A-are you serious!?

Lotta:
Course!

Phoenix:
(How do you forget... never mind.)

Lotta:
Y'all reckon I should tell the cops?

Lotta:
Hey, so, I'm off to talk to the cops. Y'all can have this photo. Later.

Phoenix:
W-w-wait! Lotta!

Lotta:
What? Can't y'all see I'm kinda busy?

Phoenix:
T-tell us what you saw, too! Please?

Lotta:
Nice try, honey, but I wasn't born yesterday. I'm a witness, and that means I'm on the side of justice, and that means the cops! I'd sooner eat the south side of a north-bound skunk than tell you!

Maya:
L-Lotta!

Lotta:
Don't let it get your skivvies in a bunch. Friends today, enemies tomorrow! Or was that the other way round? No matter. I'm gone! Hey! Maybe they'll let me do some testifying! Hot darn!

Maya:
She left... ... Well, that's one more witness. What do we do now, Nick?

Phoenix:
(Well, if she saw something, there's not much we can do about it. The question is: what exactly did she see...? I guess we'll find out in the trial tomorrow.)

Looks like the police have given up their questioning.

???:
Hey!

Maya:
Aah! N-Nick! I think Santa's mad at you!

???:
Long time no see, Nick.

Maya:
Nick... you know Santa!? Wow... Nick and St. Nick... Hey! I see the connection!

Phoenix:
Don't be ridiculous!

???:
Dude, it's me!

Phoenix:
L... Larry! What are you doing here!?

Butz:
Isn't it obvious? I'm working my day job! I sell Samurai Dogs! Want one? Gotta get money for dates, you know, My girl Kiyance deserves the best!

Phoenix:
(K-Kiyance...? Not another model, I hope...)

Butz:
Oh, Kiyance's a fine, fine woman, Nick. It was her idea that I wear this costume! She was all "You go girlfriend!" Y'know? She bought this costume for me!

Phoenix:
That... that's great, Larry.

Maya:
Wow! A Santa costume! She must be really nice!

Butz:
Whoa! Cute! Nick! Who's she? She's not your...?

Phoenix:
Not my... what? N-no, she's not!

Maya:
I'm his partner, Maya Fey. I'm, uh, the little sister.

Butz:
Sister...? ... Wow, Nick, must be tough. Working nine to five, having to take care of a little sister...

Maya:
N-no, I'm not Nick's sister, I'm my older sister's little sister...

Butz:
Huh. Sounds great!

Phoenix:
(Don't worry, Maya, he's not listening...)

Ah hah! You're Mia's... something, are you not?

Phoenix:
I was her understudy, yes. Phoenix Wright.

Grossberg:
Ah hah! And you, you're Mia's... something too, are you not?

Maya:
Her little sister, yes!

Grossberg:
You've grown! You've come to look a lot like your sister, you know? It takes me back. "Ahh... the days of my youth... like the scent of fresh lemon..." you see.

Phoenix:
Um, Mr. Grossberg, sir?

Grossberg:
Hmm...? Ah, yes. I beg your pardon. Of course you came here to discuss something. What is it then? Something the matter?

(Clearing "The DL6 Incident" "Talk" option leads to:)

What's this? I was hoping you'd gotten my message the first time.

Phoenix:
Edgeworth, what about your defense?

Edgeworth:
...! It's no concern of yours.

Phoenix:
(Guess he hasn't found anyone yet.)

(Clearing all "Talk" options and presenting Lake Photo leads to:)

Edgeworth:
... Wright.

Phoenix:
?

Edgeworth:
It pains me to ask you this now...

Maya:
I know! You want us to defend you!

Edgeworth:
Yes... Will you?

Phoenix:
This is my chance to finally pay you back.

Maya:
Pay him back...?

Edgeworth:
Pay me back? For what? I don't remember ever doing anything for you.

Phoenix:
Never mind... I guess you don't really need to know.

Edgeworth:
Huh... My letter of request. Please give it to Detective Gumshoe.

Edgeworth's Request put in pocket.

Phoenix:
Well, I guess we should... ... W-what's that!?

Maya:
E-earthquake! Nick! It's a big one! Whaaaaa! I-it's calming down... ... Whew... that was scary!

Phoenix:
...? Huh? Where's Edgeworth?

Maya:
... There. He's on the floor in a ball, shivering. I guess he doesn't do so well with earthquakes.

Phoenix:
(I've heard of running, but curling up in a ball?)

Maya:
Well, I guess we're done. Mr. Edgeworth doesn't seem like he's going to stand up any time soon. Let's go, Nick.

Phoenix:
Uh.. right. We have to give Edgeworth's letter of request to Detective Gumshoe.

Gumshoe:
What's going on here!?

Maya:
Eek!

Phoenix:
W-what's wrong, Detective?

Gumshoe:
This wild lady comes in here just a while ago... Says she came "to talk to y'all after hearing what Mr. Wright had to say"! What's this all about, pal!?

Phoenix:
(Lotta Hart...)

Gumshoe:
Why are you going around finding more witnesses!? You want to give Mr. Edgeworth the death sentence, pal!?

Phoenix:
N-no, not at all... Just... I mean, she did see something. There's nothing I can do about that. I can't go around covering up evidence!

Gumshoe:
Er... You trying to say something about the way I do my job?

Phoenix:
No sir!

Phoenix:
Look what I got.

Gumshoe:
... Hey, you did it, pal! Glad I waited till the last minute to file those papers! I'll rip 'em up and start new ones for you!

Phoenix:
Thanks, Detective. Well, see you in court tomorrow, then.

Gumshoe:
Good luck, pal.

Gumshoe:
Hey! You guys feel that earthquake a little while back? I was worried!

Maya:
Worried? We're fine! I've lived out here my whole life. I'm pretty used to them by now.

Gumshoe:
Oh, I wasn't worried about you two. I was worried about Mr. Edgeworth!

Phoenix:
(Oh, right...) He did seem to over-react a little, now that you mention it.

Gumshoe:
Yeah, well, I'm not surprised. It was a pretty big quake. I'm going to go check on him. You two go eat and get your rest for tomorrow's trial. Later!

Maya:
... I wonder what it is with Mr. Edgeworth and earthquakes?

Phoenix:
I wonder... He was never that scared of them when he was in school.


Phoenix:
(Then again, I was only in the same class as him for 4th grade. He transferred to another school after that. I wonder what happened to Edgeworth...)

To be continued.
