Episode 1: Turnabout Memories is the first episode in the video game Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations. The player assumes the role of Mia Fey in her second case, set to defend Phoenix Wright in the murder of Doug Swallow. Dahlia Hawthorne debuts in this case.


A young man is seen lying dead with someone looming over him, panting and thinking, "Why did I do that...?" A few moments ago, the two young men were arguing about a girl, the one on the left warning the one on the right that the girl was bad news.
