Episode 1: Turnabout Revival

Intro Cutscene:

 

???:

It’s been a bit, ey?

???:

Who are you?

???:

You should know me from somewhere at least.

 

???:

Come now, don’t tell me you don’t remember me…

 

???:

I doubt I have ever met such a monster in my life.

 

???:

Well if you don’t want your son’s life to be gambled here, I suggest you back down and take the fall…

 

???:

...I-

 

???:

Welcome home... Miles Edgeworth.

 

Beginning:

 

DECEMBER 6TH, 8:45 AM. EDGEWORTH RESIDENCE.

 

Edgeworth:

Happy birthday, Sebastian.

 

Debeste:

Thanks, dad!

 

Debeste(Thinking):

My name is Sebastian Debeste.

Debeste(Thinking):

 I’ve been a prosecutor for a while, but some things happened that made me rethink my life… 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

But now, I’ve trained to become a better prosecutor. 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Ever since Mr. Edgeworth adopted me, he’s helped me figure out what to do with my life. And now I’m here…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Oh yeah, and this is my… dad… Miles Edgeworth. 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

He’s the chief prosecutor.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I was also...once...a prosecutor. Haha… how funny that turned out.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

But now I’m one day away from getting my Prosecutor’s Badge back!

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I’ve finished my studies and now I am ready to become a prosecutor… all on my own!

Edgeworth:

Now, you’re 24 years old now, I believe…

 

Debeste:

Yeah! That’s right.

Edgeworth:

It’s been so long since I took you in… Do you think you’re ready to receive your badge?

 

Debeste:

I am ready!

Edgeworth:

Are you sure?

Debeste:

Of course! I’ve been ready since last year too, but…

Edgeworth:

You think so… Well, we’ll soon see if you’re right.

Debeste:

I’m totally right! After all, I am the be-

 

Edgeworth: 

Anyways, I was planning to check up on Kay and that hopeless detective today. 

 

Edgeworth:

You remember them, right? I know it’s been a while.

 

Debeste:

 Yes! They were with you during that one trial! 

 

Debeste:

But that girl’s a thief isn’t she? Aren’t I supposed to prosecute her?

 

Debeste:

 Is this a test, Mr. Edgeworth? 

 

Edgeworth: 

Uhh, no… 

 

Edgeworth:

She’s not really a thief… 

 

Edgeworth:

And she’s a detective now anyways…

 

Debeste: 

Wha- Really? 

 

Debeste:

She’s really a detective now? Like Mr. Dick? 

 

Edgeworth: 

In a sense, yes. 

 

Edgeworth:

I don’t think Gumshoe is really doing detective work these days, though… 

 

Edgeworth:

I wouldn’t really call him a detective anymore. 

Debeste: 

Oh, okay.

Edgeworth: 

Do you want to come with me?

 

Edgeworth:

I know you don’t want to listen to old men ramble about work, but I’m sure you can play with Kay or something-

 

Debeste: 

I’m not a kid, Mr, Edgeworth! Also, you’re not that old! 

 

Edgeworth: 

I know, I know. 

 

Edgeworth:

So are you coming or not?

 

Debeste: 

Yes, I’m coming!

 

Debeste:

I need to see how a detective acts before I start prosecuting! 

 

Debeste:

That’s how the best of Debeste works!~ 

 

Edgeworth: 

Mhm. You still haven’t changed at all.

 

Debeste: 

Hey! What does that mean?

 

Edgeworth: 

It’s nothing Sebastian.

 

Edgeworth:

Just try to look ready for today.

 

Debeste:

I’ll go do that now!

Edgeworth:

W-wait!

DECEMBER 6TH, 9:00 AM. EDGEWORTH RESIDENCE, LIBRARY.

 

Debeste:

I have to pass through the library to get to my own room.

 

Debeste:

Before dad bought this mansion, I lived in his office at the prosecutor’s building.

 

Debeste:

Oh? A book must’ve fallen…

 

Debeste:

 I look around the corner of a bookshelf and see Mr. Edgeworth’s bodyguard laying on the ground with books all over him.

 

Debeste: 

Ah! Mr. Shizzle! 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

 I ran up to him and tried to help. 

 

Debeste: 

Mr. Shizzle! Are you okay? 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

He didn’t respond or move at all.

 

Debeste: 

Uhh… Mr. Edgeworth! 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I called for Mr. Edgeworth in desperation. He came over quickly.

 

Edgeworth: 

Sebastian, what’s wrong? 

 

Edgeworth:

Oh… Dartfick! Sebastian, is he…?

 

Debeste: 

I… I think so…

Edgeworth: 

Alright. Stay calm. I’ll call the police. 

Debeste(Thinking):

 Mr. Edgeworth starts to tell the police what happened when he gets interrupted by a knock at the door.

 

Edgeworth: 

Stay here. I’ll answer. 

 

Debeste: 

But Mr. Edgeworth! What if that’s-

 

Edgeworth: 

I told you to stay calm, didn’t I? The police are on the way. It’ll be fine. 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Mr. Edgeworth runs towards the door and leaves me near the body.

 

Debeste: 

Uhh… Uhh… 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

 What’s going on? I hear a man talking to Mr. Edgeworth. Who is that? What’s happening? 

 

Debeste:

 ….. 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

 I know he told me to stay, but… I can’t! He could be in danger! 

 

Debeste: 

I’m sorry, Mr. Shizzle! 

 

DECEMBER 6th, 9:15 AM. EDGEWORTH RESIDENCE, HALLWAY.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

 I run after my dad, and see something I didn’t expect.

 

Edgeworth: 

Ah- Sebastian! What are you doi-

 

???: 

Shut up, old man. What did I tell you?

 

Debeste: 

Who are you? What are you doing to Mr. Edgeworth? 

???: 

Hmm? Oh, you’re his kid, Huh? 

 

???:

I’m sorry that you have to see this, but your father here is a clear-cut criminal. 

 

Debeste: 

What? No he’s not! He would never! 

 

???: 

Heh… You’re a real cute kid. You really trust your father, don’t you? What’s your name, by the way?

 

Debeste: 

I’m not a kid! And it’s Sebastian Debeste! 

 

???: 

Haha… Apologies. Hap’piraki, Debeste.

 

Debeste: 

Huh? Happy rocky…?

 

Edgeworth: 

Sebastian. It’s just a greeting. This is a new detective and he’s Khura’inese.

 

Debeste: 

Oh! Well, happy rocky to you too! I mean-

 

Aman:

 I appreciate it. My name is Detective Aigh’Kihled Aman. 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

 He sticks out his hand for me.

 

Debeste: 

I’m not gonna get friendly with you! My dad didn’t do anything! 

 

Aman:

 Hmpf… You’re real stubborn… 

 

Debeste: 

The police are on the way! And they’ll find the real killer! 

Aman: 

The police? 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

He glares at Mr. Edgeworth for a second.

 

Debeste: 

I’ll never let you arrest him for no reason! This is ridiculous! You can’t do this! 

 

Aman: 

That’s fine… That’s totally fine… This is just the challenge I need. 

 

Debeste: 

Huh?

 

Aman: 

We’ll wrap this up before the police even get here. How about that? 

 

Aman:

No need to waste their time! 

 

Aman:

I’ll destroy your half-assed reasoning and lock him up before you can hear the sirens, kid! 

 

ARGUMENT-

Aigh’Kihled Aman, Why He Should Be Locked Up!

 

Aman:

Are you serious?

 

Aman:

Mr. Edgeworth literally lives here and the body was found in HIS house.

 

Aman:

Who else could it be?

 

Aman:

Give me ONE good reason why we should not arrest him, then I might give you a chance to investigate.

 

ARGUMENT OVER

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Was… that an argument just now?

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I don’t have any evidence but… I have to do this! For Mr. Edgeworth!

 

REBUTTAL-

Sebastian Debeste, Why He Should Be Locked Up!

 

Aman:

Are you serious, kid?

 

Aman:

This is your dad’s place, you know?

 

Aman:

Who else could it be?

 

Aman:

Give me ONE good reason why we should not arrest him, then I might give you a chance to investigate.

 

(Present: Edgeworth’s Badge)

 

Debeste:

I Object!

Aman:

Huh?

 

Aman:

What’s this piece of plastic?

 

Debeste:

This is Mr. Edgeworth’s prosecutor’s badge!

 

Debeste:

As a prosecutor, Mr. Edgeworth always strived to thoroughly investigate crime scenes and find the truth of a murder!

 

Aman:

So what’s your point?

 

Debeste:

Because if we rush this investigation, we will end up arresting the wrong person!

 

Aman:

But, It’s obvious he did it…

 

Debeste:

Just a Minute!

 

Debeste:

Until you provide me with an opportunity, motive, and hard evidence…

 

Debeste: 

I cannot allow you to arrest Mr. Edgeworth!

 

Aman:

Ooh.

 

Aman:

You’re a tough one…

 

Aman:

Fine.

 

Aman:

I can only allow you a brief look at the scene.

 

Debeste:

I thank you.

 

Aman:

Not that it’ll do you much.

 

Aman:

Any fool can tell your old man’s the killer.

 

Edgeworth:

Detective Aman! 

 

Edgeworth:

We will not know that until we look at the scene of the crime for ourselves!

 

Debeste:

Yeah, that! 

 

Edgeworth:

Good job Sebastian, you sounded just like a real prosecutor just now.

 

Debeste:

I did?

 

Edgeworth:

It’s easy to hear your passion for the truth.

 

Debeste:

Wow, dad. You really surprise me!

 

Debeste(Thinking):

And so my first investigation as a new prosecutor began…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

But I personally don’t think it’s the best start…

 

Aman:

So make it snappy! If you can’t find anything…

 

Aman:

I’ll arrest the old man before you can say “Pohlkunka!”

 

Debeste:

Pole… koonka?

 

Edgeworth:

It’s a Khura’inese expression of shock. 

 

Aman: 

Just get on with it already.

 

DECEMBER 6TH, 10:00 AM. EDGEWORTH RESIDENCE, LIBRARY.

 

Debeste:

Alright, still getting over the shock of Mr. Shizzle

 

Edgeworth:

I didn’t know you were that close to him…

 

Debeste: 

He was your bodyguard! We lived with him for 3 years!

 

Edgeworth: 

Well it was just something I got after becoming Chief Prosecutor…

 

Debeste: 

It doesn’t matter! Someone murdered Mr. Shizzle in cold blood, and I’m gonna find out who!

 

INVESTIGATION

BEGIN

 

(Investigate: Bookshelf)

 

Debeste: 

Wow, I never really thought about how many books are in here!

 

Edgeworth:

Don’t you study here all the time?

 

Debeste:

Well, yeah… but that’s mostly with books supplied to me.

 

Debeste: 

There’s so many shelves!

 

(Added Bookshelf to Logic)

 

(Investigate: Shizzle’s Body)

 

Debeste:

Mr. Shizzle… who could’ve done this to you?

 

Debeste:

He was shot in the back…

 

Debeste:

He’s also covered with a lot of books… It looks like they fell from the shelf.

 

(Added Fallen Books to Logic)

 

(Investigate: Shizzle’s Glasses)

 

Debeste:

I didn’t know Mr. Shizzle wore glasses… but he’s lying face down?

 

(Added Glasses to Logic)

 

Debeste:

Were they broken during the struggle?

 

(Crime Scene Notes added to Organizer)

 

(Logic: Bookshelf and Fallen Books)

 

Debeste:

I see now…

 

Debeste:

If these books really did fall during the struggle…

 

Debeste:

The books from the bookshelf probably would’ve been more spread out, right?

 

Debeste:

But instead they’re all on top of Mr. Shizzle…

Edgeworth:

 

Debeste:

So these books must’ve been placed here to cover up something on Mr. Shizzle’s body!

 

(Fallen Books added to Organizer)

 

(Talk: Edgeworth)

 

Edgeworth:

Yes, Sebastian?

 

(Talk Subject: Shizzle’s Glasses)

 

Debeste:

Mr. Edgeworth, I never knew Mr. Shizzle wore glasses…

 

Edgeworth:

Yes. It certainly is a strange sight.

 

Debeste:

Speaking of glasses, did you get a new pair? I’ve never seen you wear those before!

 

Edgeworth:

Ah…

 

(Talk Subject: Different Glasses)

 

Debeste:

Mr. Edgeworth, I remember your glasses being brown, but now they're black.

 

Edgeworth:

I did happen to get new glasses. 

 

Debeste:

Get new glasses? But you were wearing those brown ones last night!

 

Edgeworth:

 

(Edgeworth’s Glasses added to Logic)

 

Debeste:

Looks like that’s all I’m going to get out of Mr. Edgeworth for now…

 

(Logic: Glasses and Edgeworth’s Glasses)

 

Debeste:

Now that I look closer at it…

 

Debeste:

The glasses on Mr. Shizzle’s body and the glasses you were wearing Mr. Edgeworth…

 

Debeste:

...Look exactly the same!

 

Edgeworth:

Indeed they do.

 

Debeste:

Would these not happen to be your glasses Mr. Edgeworth?

Edgeworth:

No. Just a coincidence.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Shizzle not wearing glasses, Mr. Edgeworth’s different color glasses…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I’m not getting the whole story here…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

...Looks like it’s time to conduct the case to my benefit!

 

(Ballad: The Glasses Conundrum)

 

Debeste:

Alright dad, if you really don’t know anything about Mr. Shizzle’s glasses…

 

Debeste:

I’d like for you to explain how your glasses changed so quickly!

 

Edgeworth:

I shall happily do so…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I feel bad for trying to pressure Mr. Edgeworth, but I feel like he’s hiding something from me.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

If he’s hiding something, he should contradict himself at some point…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

So all I need to do is point out which statements contradict each other!

 

Edgeworth:

(Statement 1)

I really don’t see where the confusion is…

 

Edgeworth:

(Statement 2)

Last night, I told you I was going to bed and for you not to stay up too late…

 

Edgeworth:

(Statement 3)

A few hours later, I tripped on something and broke my glasses.

 

Edgeworth:

(Statement 4)

That’s why I replaced my glasses…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Alright, I just need to look for two statements that contradict each other.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Shouldn’t be too hard.

 

Edgeworth:

...

 

PITTING:

Edgeworth:

(Statement 1)

I really don’t see where the confusion is…

 

Edgeworth:

(Statement 2)

Last night, I told you I was going to bed and for you not to stay up too late…

(Pit: Statement 2 and Statement 3)

 

Debeste:

Look at it this Way!

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I’m sorry, Mr. Edgeworth…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

But you’re definitely hiding something…

 

Edgeworth:

Um… yes?

 

Debeste:

Oh! Right…

 

Debeste:

If you said you were going to bed…

Debeste:

Then how would you have tripped on something in your bed? 

Edgeworth:

Ah! I.. uh…

 

Debeste:

What I think happened is you…

 

(Select: Had a fight in the library.)

 

Debeste:

Something happened that would end up in your glasses breaking in the library…

 

Edgeworth:

That’s a wild accusation. Would you like to show me some proof, Sebastion?

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Gah!

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Do I have any proof?

 

Debeste(Thinking):

What proves that Mr. Shizzle’s glasses are actually Mr. Edgeworth’s glasses?

 

(Present: Crime Scene Notes)

 

Debeste:

Take a Look!

 

Edgeworth:

The crime scene?

 

Edgeworth:

What exactly does this prove?

 

Debeste:

Note that Mr. Shizzle is facing downwards…

 

Debeste:

So I ask you, how exactly did his glasses break?

 

Edgeworth:

Obviously, the boo-

 

Edgeworth:

Ah!

 

Debeste:

How would Mr. Shizzle’s glasses have broken at all if he was facing the ground?

 

Debeste:

I believe this proves that these glasses are in fact yours!

 

Edgeworth:

Hmm…

 

Edgeworth:

Yes, this is certainly true…

 

Debeste:

It’s the only explanation as to how the glasses were broken!

 

Edgeworth:

Objection!

 

Edgeworth:

Sebastian, you’re still young…

 

Edgeworth:

Take it easy on an old man like me. I don’t have the energy to keep up with your wild fantasies…

 

Debeste:

Huh?

 

Edgeworth:

The victim is indeed lying downwards…

 

Edgeworth:

So wouldn’t it be safe to say that his glasses broke on impact with the ground?

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Could that really be true?

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I better look at the crime scene one more time…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

What in this photo can disprove that theory?

 

(Select: Shizzle’s Hands)

 

Debeste:

I’ve Got It!

 

Debeste:
Mr. Edgeworth…

 

Edgeworth:

Yes?

 

Debeste:

Think about it like this! What would you do if you were about to fall?

 

Debeste:

How would your body react?

 

Edgeworth:

I would…

 

Edgeworth:

Place my hands out in front of me…

 

Edgeworth:

To break my fall.

 

Debeste:

Now look at Mr. Shizzle’s hands…

 

Edgeworth:

Gah!

 

Edgeworth:

They’re… by his side?

 

Debeste:

Correct…

 

Debeste:

This could only mean one thing…

 

Debeste:

Mr. Shizzle did not fall forward!

 

Debeste:

And yet, he’s facing downwards!

 

Edgeworth:

Ahhhhhh!

 

Debeste:

So how could his glasses possibly have broken?

 

Edgeworth:

Ngggggg…

 

Edgeworth:

You’re sharp.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I think he’s finally gonna tell the truth now.

 

(Talk Subject: The Truth)

 

Edgeworth:

I was in this library last night…

 

Debeste:

Wait…

 

Debate:

WHAT?!

 

Edgeworth:

I saw Mr. Shizzle’s body on the floor.

 

Edgeworth:

And I was confronted by the true culprit.

 

Debeste:

!

 

Edgeworth:

He punched me in the face, breaking my glasses.

 

Edgeworth:

They fell off my face, and he placed them onto Mr. Shizzles body.

 

Debeste:

Looks like he panicked and didn’t know what to do with them…

 

Edgeworth:

He threatened me and so I left him be.

 

Edgeworth:

As for how he even got into the house to begin with, I have no idea.

 

(Crime Scene Notes updated in Organizer)

 

Debeste(Thinking):

So the glasses did belong to Mr. Edgeworth.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

This case is starting to unravel…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

One thread at a time.

 

TO BE CONTINUED…

 

End:

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I believe I’m starting to understand this case a little better…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Let’s see…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

The true culprit somehow wormed themselves into the library…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Then they killed Mr. Shizzle, covered up the body with books, and then was caught by Mr. Edgeworth.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

The killer panicked, and broke Mr. Edgeworth’s glasses…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Then proceeded to place them on Mr. Shizzle’s body.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

This case definitely needs more investigation.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

But I think the first thing I should do is find out why the killer needed to cover up the body with books.

 

Debeste:

Why would the killer need to cover the body with books?

 

Debeste:

I guess I’ll just lift the-

 

Edgeworth:

Sebastian!

 

Debeste:

Ah!

 

Debeste:

What is it?

 

Edgeworth:

You can’t just tamper with the crime scene like that!

 

Edgeworth:

We will have to wait until the police arrive…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

He’s got a point…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I suppose next I should try to find out how the killer came into the house in the first place...

 

(Unknown Entry added to Logic)

 

(Investigate: Ventilation Shaft)

 

Debeste:

This is quite a large ventilation shaft…

 

Debeste:

Even enough for a human to fit through…

 

Debeste: 

Huh?!

 

Debeste:

There’s a bloodstain!

 

Debeste:

Is this where the killer escaped from?

 

(Bloodstain added to Organizer)

 

(Ventilation Shaft added to Logic)

 

(Logic: Unknown Entry and Ventilation Shaft)

Debeste:

A full-grown man could fit through that vent shaft…

 

Edgeworth:

But there’s a grate over the entry.

 

Edgeworth:

You’d need a screwdriver to get through.

 

Debeste:

Even so…

 

Debeste:

This investigation was…

 

Debeste:

...interesting.

 

INVESTIGATION

COMPLETE

 

Edgeworth:

I suppose we’re done here…

 

Debeste:

I think it’s-

 

Aman:

Your time is up!

 

Debeste:

Detective Aman!

 

Aman:
You’ve had your time to investigate…

Aman:

So if you can’t show me some solid proot then-

Debeste: 

Uhh… Proot?

 

Aman:

You know, like evidence. C’mon, kid. You gotta know this!

 

Debeste:

Sorry, but I’ve never actually heard of that… Ahah…  

 

Edgeworth:

Sebastian!

 

Edgeworth:

I believe what Detective Aman means is “Proof.”

Aman:

Whatever! It doesn’t matter!

 

Aman:

I’m still not done!

 

ARGUMENT
Aigh’Kihled Aman, Solid Proof

 

Aman:

Even with this investigation, there’s no way you could’ve uncovered anything useful.

 

Aman:

Even if you bluff your way through this, Edgeworth is the killer no matter how you slice it!

 

Aman:

I want to see solid proof that he didn’t do it!

 

Aman:

Show me THAT, and I’ll be impressed.

 

ARGUMENT OVER

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Alright, he’s starting to let down a little bit.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

I’ll have to show him how The Best operates!

 

REBUTTAL

Sebastian Debeste, Solid Proof

Aman:

Even with this investigation, there’s no way you could’ve uncovered anything useful.

 

Aman:

Even if you bluff your way through this, Edgeworth is the killer no matter how you slice it!

 

Debeste:

Just a Minute!

 

Debeste:

Now what makes you so sure that it’s Mr. Edgeworth again?

Aman:

I mean the murder was comitted in HIS house.

 

Aman:

And there is no sign of unlawful entry to the residence.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Wait, what?

 

Debeste(Thinking):

That last statement sounded important.

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Better hold onto it.

 

Aman:

There was no evidence of any unwanted entry to the house that night.

 

(Present: Bloodstain)

 

Debeste:

I Object!

 

Debeste:

A bloodstain was found in the fairly large vent in the library.

 

Aman:

What?

 

Debeste:

And the matter of fact is…

 

Debeste:

It can’t be accessed from the inside normally!

 

Aman:

Objection!

 

Aman:

Well then, he got a screwdriver and unscrewed the grate!

 

Debeste:

Just a Minute!

 

Debeste:

Detective Aman!

 

Aman:

What is it, kid?

 

Debeste:

You haven’t looked at the crime scene in depth…

 

Debeste:

So I ask…

 

Debeste:

How did you know that the vent was guarded by a grate?!

 

Aman:

Gah! Nggggg….

 

Aman:

I saw it just now, while having this very conversation.

 

Aman:

There’s nothing off about the vent!

 

Debeste:

I Object!

 

Debeste:

And yet there’s a huge bloodstain in it!

 

Debeste:

This should clear Mr. Edgeworth of all suspicion!

 

Aman:

Oh yeah?!

 

Aman:

Well, do YOU have any idea who killed him?

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Do I?

 

Debeste(Thinking):

What piece of evidence points to the true culprit?

 

(Present: Fallen Books)

 

Aman:

WHAT?!

 

Debeste:

These books were found on top of Mr. Shizzles body.

 

Aman:

Ok. And your point is?

 

Debeste:

Notice how the books are only on top of Mr. Shizzle and nowhere beside him.

 

Debeste:

It’s almost as if the killer was trying to cover up something...

Aman:

Hmpf. And you think this coincidence means anything? Funny.

 

Debeste: 

Coincidence? 

 

Debeste:

We’ll figure out whether it’s a coincidence or not after we move those books and check what’s underneath. 

 

Aman:

Tch...

 

Debeste:

Detective Aman!

 

Debeste:

You will let us examine what’s under the fallen books!

 

Aman:

Gah….

 

Aman:

Nggggggggggg….

 

Aman:

No.

 

Debeste:

What?!

 

Aman:

I have the authority here.

 

Aman:

And even if I can’t arrest Mr. Edgeworth just yet…

 

Aman:

I still have every power to prevent you from tampering with the crime scene.

 

Debeste:

No!

 

Debeste:

NO!

 

Edgeworth:

Calm down Sebastian.

 

Edgeworth:

The police will be here any mo-

 

???:

POLICE!

 

Police:

What’s the situation?

 

Aman:

The man in red!

 

Aman:

He murdered this poor man in cold blood!

 

Debeste:

I Object!

 

Debeste:

No! It’s not true!

 

Debeste:

The books…

 

Debeste:

What’s under them will show the true culprit!

 

Police:

Well, I think we will look at the scene for ourselves…

 

Aman:

Officer!

 

Aman:

I have already found the true perpetrator of this heinous crime!

 

Aman:

We’re done here!

 

Police:

Sorry man… just doing my job.

 

Police:

What the?

 

Police:

It looks like a bead of some sort…

 

Debeste:

What? A bead?

 

(Bead added to Organizer)

 

Aman:

Ghh…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Why does Detective Aman look so nervous?

 

Aman:

Now that your childish fantasy has come to fruition and it produced nothing…

 

Aman:

Allow me to present my argument as to why Miles Edgeworth is the killer!

 

ARGUMENT:

Aigh’Kihled Aman, The Final Proof!

 

Aman:

Come one, this is ridiculous!

 

Aman:

The body is in Edgeworth’s house!

 

Aman:

So what if there's a bloodstain in the vent?

 

Aman:

It’s not my fault the killer’s a messy individual, so don’t waste my time!

 

Aman:

There’s no evidence that points to anyone else, and that’s all that matters.

 

Aman:

That’s my final proof!

 

ARGUMENT OVER

 

Debeste(Thinking):

This is it! 

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Now I just need to shove some evidence in his face!

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Easier said than done… haha…

 

REBUTTAL:

Sebastian Debeste, The Final Proof!

 

Aman:

Come one, this is ridiculous!

 

Aman:

The body is in Edgeworth’s house!

 

Aman:

So what if there's a bloodstain in the vent?

 

Aman:

It’s not my fault the killer’s a messy individual, so don’t waste my time!

 

Aman:

There’s no evidence that points to anyone else, and that’s all that matters.

 

(Present: Bead)

 

Debeste:

I Object!

 

Aman:

You’ve gotta be messing with me, kid. Come on!

 

Debeste: I’m not! I am very serious.

 

Edgeworth:

He’s right, you know. If you just had a few more minutes, you might’ve gotten away…

 

Aman:

Wha-?

 

Debeste:

Detective Aman!

 

Debeste:

I accuse you of being the murderer of Dartfick Shizzle!

 

 Aman:

What do you mean? This is absurd! I’m the detective, you know?

 

Debeste:

Your culture seems to be a fan of beads…

 

Aman:

My culture also isn’t a fan of defense attorneys, and yet you still defend someone who is obviously guilty. I should arrest you both.

 

Debeste: 

But- But-

 

Edgeworth: 

Sebastian, don’t lose focus!

 

Debeste:

Right! Detective Aman, would you call it a coincidence that you happen to be missing a bead?

 

Aman:

Hell yeah I would!

 

Debeste:

Wait, what?

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Dammit! I thought I had him!

 

Aman:

Look kid, I’m not stupid…

 

Aman:

If I really did leave that bead at the scene, then why would I have to cover it up instead of just taking it with me?

 

Debeste(Thinking):

Why didn’t he take the bead with him?

 

(Select: You Were Interrupted)

 

Debeste:

Just think of the whole reason why the bead is there in the first place…

 

Aman:

What are you getting at?

 

Debeste:

Right when you were about to make your escape…

 

Debeste:

You were interrupted by none other than Miles Edgeworth!

 

Aman:

Wha… WHAT?!

 

Police:

What’s the problem, Aman? That’s not true, is it?

 

Edgeworth:

This is it Sebastian…

 

Edgeworth:

End this!

 

Edgeworth:

Put this sorry man in his place!

 

Debeste:

You two got into a skirmish and in the fight, Mr. Edgeworth ripped off one of your beads!

 

Aman:

No!

 

Aman:

You’re wrong!

 

Aman:

Anyone could have done that!

 

Aman:

But more importantly… Can you prove that happened at all?

 

Aman:

You’ve just been spouting nonsense this whole time. Give me some evidence! Give me proof! Give me anything! 

(Present Crime Scene Notes)

Debeste:

Notice the fact that Mr. Shizzle has glasses on his face…

 

Aman:

What?!

 

Debeste:

All this time, I thought the killer put the glasses on Mr. Shizzle…

 

Debeste:

But it was Miles Edgeworth!

 

Debeste:

You broke his glasses, and to leave evidence…

 

Debeste:

He put his glasses on Mr. Shizzle’s body!

 

Debeste:

What’s more is that Mr. Shizzle doesn’t wear glasses! 

 

Aman:

E-E… EDGEWORTH!!!

 

Edgeworth:

Good job Sebastian, keep going…

 

Edgeworth:

Don’t stop the momentum!

 

Debeste:

You couldn’t take the bead with you!

 

Debeste:

Because there was a witness!

 

Aman:

Objection!

 

Aman:

So?

 

Aman:

Anyone with a bead necklace could have done this…

 

Debeste:

I’m afraid that’s not the case…

 

Aman:

WHAT?!

 

Debeste(Thinking):

This is it…

 

Debeste(Thinking):

The ultimate proof!

 

Debeste(What should I do?)

 

(Select: Body Search)

 

Debeste:

I kindly ask the police to conduct a body search of Detective Aman!

 

Aman:

Objection!

 

Aman:

On what grounds?

 

Edgeworth:

You have had a mountain of evidence put upon you, and you cannot counteract any of it!

 

Edgeworth:

That is plenty of reason to conduct a body search!

 

Police:

Very well…

 

Aman:

No!

 

Aman:

NO!

 

Aman:

GET AWAY FROM ME!

 

Police:

We found a screwdriver in his pocket…

 

Debeste:

That’s it!

 

Debeste(Thinking):

This screwdriver explains what piece of evidence?

 

(Present: Bloodstain)

 

Debeste:

Take a Look!

 

Debeste:

In order to use this vent to enter the house, you would need a screwdriver in order to remove the grate!

 

Debeste:

Detective Aman!

 

Debeste:

All the evidence points to you!

 

Aman:

No…

 

Aman:

DEBESTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

 

Aman:

It- It’s not my fault!

 

Aman:

If that bastard had just followed orders…

 

Aman:

I wouldn’t be stuck like this…

 

Aman:

Damn you… You-

 

Aman:

AND YOU!

 

Aman:

Sebastian Debeste…

 

Aman:

Miles Edgeworth!

 

Aman:

You’ll PAY!

 

Aman:

Both of you!

 

Edgeworth:

I’m very proud of you, Sebastian.

 

Debeste:

Thanks… dad…

 

Debeste:

I do have one question though…

 

Edgeworth:

And what would that be?

 

Debeste:

Why did you put your glasses on Mr. Shizzle’s face?

 

Edgeworth:

 

Edgeworth:

A little bit of foresight can take you a long way Sebastian.

 

Debeste:

Foresight?

 

Edgeworth:

Nevermind… you’ll learn soon.

 

Debeste(Thinking): 

I hate when Mr. Edgeworth says ominously vague things to me.

 

Debeste: 

So… What do we do now? Are we gonna go see Mr. Dick and Kay now?

 

Edgeworth:

 No, not today. I think we’ve had quite enough excitement for one day.

 

Edgeworth:

 I’ve got a library to start cleaning up. You can go to sleep for now. I’ll do the same in a bit.

 

Debeste Okay…

 

Debeste (Thinking): I was hoping we could… Wait…

 

Debeste: Umm… Do you smell that, Mr. Edgeworth?

 

Edgeworth:

 Oh! Surely not… There’s no way…

 

Debeste: What? What is it?

 

Edgeworth: 

Sebastian, come with me! We have to get out of the house right now!

 

Debeste (thinking): On that day, Mr. Edgeworth’s mansion burned down mysteriously and from that day forward, my life would become a lot more challenging.
