Phoenix:
My name is Phoenix Wright... ...head of the Wright Anything Agency, and a lawyer. Although, I was doing something else entirely for a while there. As for why I decided to formally get back into lawyering... ...let's just say there's unfinished business to take care of. Anyway, I thought I'd reminisce about my first case back on the job. And what a case it was! It happened only a few months after Athena joined our office...

Special Episode
Turnabout Reclaimed




July 20, 12:37 AM
Wright Anything Agency

Phoenix:
(Today is my first day back on the job as a lawyer. Putting this attorney's badge on again really makes it hit home. Boy am I pumped! Even Trucy said, "Looking good, Daddy!") So Athena, Apollo, what do you think of the ol' attorney's badge?

Athena:
Wow! This Shipshape Aquarium's show is great! I can't get enough of it!

Phoenix:
Um... Athena?

Athena:
I still can't believe they showed the Swashbuckler Spectacular on TV! Good thing I recorded this! ...Now, who's ready for another viewing!

Apollo:
You've already watched it five times! Let's watch something else now!

Athena:
How can you even suggest such a thing?! This show is therapeutic!

Phoenix:
(Uh, boss here, asking you guys a question...)

Apollo:
What's so "therapeutic" about watching a killer whale?

Athena:
What?! Don't you know anything?! Animal-assisted therapy is an established psychiatric treatment!

Apollo:
You're kidding. That kind of thing really exists?

Athena:
It's a real thing! I've been to the aquarium myself to try it, and it really helps. I still go to there every now and then to further my psychology studies. The last time I went, I saw a dolphin and an orca swimming around together! It was so--

Phoenix:
Hey, do you two think you could quit goofing off and do some work for a change?

Apollo:
Work? But we've already cleaned the toilet... Twice. Each. ...Hey, wait a minute. Is that your badge I see?

Athena:
Wow! Congrats on getting your attorney's badge back, Boss!

Phoenix:
Thanks. Starting today, I'm officially a lawyer again! (Sheesh. Took 'em long enough to notice...)

Apollo:
Gee, Mr. Wright... With that badge on, you suddenly look so... capable!

Phoenix:
Ha ha ha. Um, thanks? (It's not like I was some lazy bum, you know!)

Apollo:
But what made you suddenly so fired up to get your badge back, anyway?

Phoenix:
Ah, well... I made a promise to a certain someone... An important promise.

Apollo:
What could be so important...?

Phoenix:
Anyway, we have three lawyers now, so we'd better start taking on lots of work!

Athena:
I'm all for that! Let's get this agency hoppin'!

Phoenix:
(Well, we have plenty of enthusiasm. All we need now are some clients... It's been eight years since I last wore this badge. I feel like a rookie all over again.)

TV:
...And this just in... The owned of Shipshape Aquarium, "Captain" Jack Shipley... ...has been murdered. The suspect in the case is reportedly already in custody inside the aquarium.

Apollo:
Isn't that the aquarium we were just watching, Athena?!

Athena:
It is! ...I can't believe it! A murder at Shipshape Aquarium...?! But I love that place! We need to get to the bottom of this!

???:
R-Really? I guess I'm in luck, then! I need Phoenix Wright to save my friend!

Phoenix:
(Wh-Who in the world is this?!) Um... are you a client...?

Athena:
Wait... That costume... It looks just like... I've got it! You must work at Shipshape Aquarium!

Buckler:
That's right! You min-now it! I'm Sasha Buckler! I perform like an agile catfish in our pirate show! It'll blowfish your mind!

Phoenix:
("Minnow"? "Blowfish"? Those puns floundered a bit...)

Athena:
Hee hee! I figured out the client's identity! Chalk one up for analytical psychology!

Buckler:
My friend is under suspicion of murder, so I really need some help. That's why I've gotta find this "Phoenix Wright" guy...

Phoenix:
Well, I'm Phoenix Wright... And this is Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes. They're lawyers, too.

Apollo:
If there's anything you need, all you have to do is ask!

Athena:
The same goes for me too, Ms. Buckler!

Buckler:
Ha ha! Just call me "Sasha." And I'll call you all by your first names, too, if that's all right. Phoenix, Apollo, Athena, you have to help me! Please save my friend!

Phoenix:
(Guess we'd better start by asking her more about her defense request.)



Buckler:
Well, no time to stand around and mullet over things! I want you to meet my friend right away! Come to Shipshape Aquarium with me!

Athena:
You got it!

Apollo:
And I'll go, too!

Phoenix:
Sorry, but I need you to stay here and keep an eye on the office until Trucy gets back. You never know when a new client might stop by.

Apollo:
How come I'M the one who has to stay behind?!

Phoenix:
Thanks a million, Apollo. Well, ladies, let's move to the aquarium, shall we?






July 20
Shipshape Aquarium - Aqua Tunnel

Athena:
Wow, this is gorgeous! It's just like being under the sea!

Buckler:
Yeah, this is the Aqua Tunnel, our pride and joy. I'm r-eel-y glad you like it! I'm going to go on ahead and fill the detective in on your arrival. Take a look around the tunnel, and then come meet me at the pool up ahead on the right.

Athena:
Hey, Boss! Look at this cute little fish!

Phoenix:
Mmm... I bet it would be delicious grilled.

Athena:
Seriously? Is that really all you can think of?

Phoenix:
Well, I didn't get to eat lunch today-- Ooh! And here comes some grilled chicken!

Athena:
That's not a chicken! It's a penguin! C'mere, little cutie!

............*kree*

Athena:
.........It ignored me...

Phoenix:
Maybe it was hungry, too... Oh, look. It dropped something.

Athena:
Ah! It's an ad for the Swashbuckler Spectacular show!

Phoenix:
That penguin had a whole bunch of these stuffed in its backpack.

Athena:
So it's passing out flyers, huh? How cute!

Phoenix:
A carrier penguin that distributes flyers? ...We could use one of those for our office.

Swashbuckler Flyer added to the Court Record.

Phoenix:
Well, can't keep the client waiting! We'd better get going.

Athena:
Yeah, you're right. Time to roll up our sleeves!




July 20
Shipshape Aquarium - ???

Phoenix:
Huh? I don't see Sasha...

???:
Ah! Are you two the lawyers Ms. Buckler mentioned?

Athena:
Detective Fulbright! Are you the lead detective on this case?!

Fulbright:
That's right. As long as evil exists in this world, there'll be no rest for me! And who is your sea urchin-like friend there? I don't believe we've met...?

Phoenix:
(Is he talking about me?) I'm the defendant's lawyer, Phoenix Wright.

Fulbright:
Well, I'm Detective Bobby Fulbright! People don't usually get to see this area. It's only open now because of the investigation. You two are pretty lucky to get this peek behind the scenes of an aquarium!

Phoenix:
Lucky... Right... (This guy is even louder than Apollo...) So, where is the suspect being questioned? And where is Ms. Buckler?

???:
Here I be, me buckos!

Athena:
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!

Phoenix:
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh!

Buckler:
Shiver me timbers! There be one of Dread Pirate Nostache's scurvy swabs!

Fulbright:
I beg your pardon?! I'm not anyones "swab," "scurvy" or otherwise!

Buckler:
More shameless than a sea lion ye be, tryin' to make off with me best bucko! If ye want to pick a fight with us, ye'd best bring along an army o' great white sharks!

???:
*squeek*... Fweeeeeeet!

Phoenix:
S-Sasha, what's going on here...?

Buckler:
Let me introduce you! This is the friend I was telling you about! Her name is Ora Shipley... ...but she only responds to "Orla," so that's what people call her. I'm her trainer. She's the suspect in the murder, but she'd never hurt anybody.

Orla:
Fweet!

Phoenix:
SHE'S the suspect...?!

Buckler:
Yeah, and thank goodness you came before they put her down! I'm r-eel-y grateful to the two of you. I just know you'll save Orla!

Phoenix:
...WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!

Fulbright:
Don't tell me you didn't even know who your client was?

Athena:
A-An orca is the suspect? Our client is an orca?! Is this for real?!

Buckler:
Oh, did I forget to mention that? Oopsie!

Phoenix:
(That's one VERY BIG OOPSIE!) By the way, what was with that mustache earlier...?

Buckler:
Oh, this be part of me costume for the Swashbuckler Spectacular! When I be wearin' the mustache, I be one of Cap'n Orla's Swashbucklers! A transformation as dramatic as a puffer fish's, wouldn't you say?

Phoenix:
(I don't think I would ever say that.)

Athena:
It's a pirate-themed aquarium, so that's why Orla is wearing a pirate hat, right?

Buckler:
Yup! She really loves wearing hats. She puts them on all the time. But her fake mustache keeps falling off, so that's a problem...

Phoenix:
I-I see... Well, why don't we start with you telling us a bit more about Orla?



Phoenix:
(I got my badge back now, so I know exactly what I have to do.) ...I'll defend Orla in court.

Fulbright:
Huh?

Phoenix:
Even an orca deserves a fair trial. If the one responsible for Orla is dead... then I'll take responsibility for her!

Athena:
You'll what?! I guess doing crazy things just once in your career wasn't enough, huh? But what the heck! I'll take responsibility for her, too!

Fulbright:
Are you two insane?! This is a case of accidental death caused by an animal! It's not a murder case! With no evidence of foul play, this case will never go to court!

Phoenix:
Then let us investigate the crime scene. If we can prove this was a murder, we might be able to take it to trial. And then Orla would certainly need the help of a few good lawyers!

Fulbright:
Hmm... I guess so... But who's ever heard of a trial for a killer whale?!

Athena:
Just because it's never been done before doesn't mean we can't do it now!

Fulbright:
But... Hmmmmmmmmm...

Athena:
Please, Detective Fulbright! For justice's sake!

Fulbright:
............ The police have determined that an animal that has harmed a human should be put down. But I don't know for sure whether that was a just decision... If your sense of justice compels you to take on the defense of this animal... ...then my sense of justice tells me to let this case be reexamined for possible merit!

Phoenix:
Y-You mean it?!

Athena:
Really?! That's fantastic! You're not such a bad guy after all, Detective Fulbright!

Fulbright:
Just remember, this case hasn't been officially recognized as a homicide yet. I'll get in touch with the prosecutor's office, but I'm not making any promises. Anyway, I'd better be off!

Buckler:
You two are our lifeboat! I'll be right here if you need me!

Phoenix:
Thanks. I've got a feeling we'll really need your help with this investigation.

Athena:
We're still not sure if it'll go to trial, but as Orla's lawyers, we'll do everything we can!

Phoenix:
To get this case into court, we'll need a prosecutor to make an indictment... ...so we have to find enough evidence to prove it's a criminal case.

Athena:
There just has to be something that shows the culprit was somebody other than Orla!

Phoenix:
Hmm... Detective Fulbright said there were no weapons in the area, other than her... ...so we'd better look for something to prove him wrong. I'd better make a note of that so I don't forget.

Athena:
You sure are organized, Boss! Maybe I should get a notebook of my own!

Phoenix:
I just like to jot down Notes on the case in the Court Record as I go along. We can use it as a sort of "To Do" list.

Athena:
Great idea! I'll add things, too. And whenever we're stuck, we can just refer to the notes!

Phoenix:
(To read the Notes, I just open the Court Recors (R). The I can switch between the tabs by touching them, or with R and L.) There! Note jotted. Now let's investigate this crime scene.

Athena:
There has to be some evidence here we can use in court! Examining the crime scene from every angle is the key here!

Phoenix:
That's right. If we change our perspective, we might come across new evidence. To change perspectives, I can touch the arrows on the bottom screen or use [D-Pad].

Athena:
Or, if there's a particular spot that's got your attention, get right up to it and look away!

Phoenix:
(Like that outline of the body in the far right there...?)

Athena:
Of course, talking to everybody involved is one of the keys to good investigation.

Phoenix:
Exactly. And if we Present items to people, we might learn even more.

Athena:
Right! It all boils down to thorough legwork! Well, let's get started!



Phoenix:
I guess that's about it.

Athena:
Under different circumstances, I would've loved to see the Swashbuckler Spectacular...

Buckler:
The three of us always performed the show together -- me, Orla, and the captain... Today's show has been canceled, but we could put on a little performance for you now! We be Cap'n Orla's Swashbucklers, me buckos! We love to sail the seven seas! We've come to rout that mangy blaggard, Dread Pirate Nostache! Avast! There he be, Nostache himself! Prepare to feed the fish!

Phoenix:
Um... am I playing the role of "Nostache"?

Athena:
Well, Sasha has a "stache," and you don't, so I guess so...

Buckler:
Hit 'im with yer water cannon, Cap'n, and spare no quarter!

Phoenix:
Aaaaaaagh!

Orla:
Fwe fwe fweet. Fwe fwe fwe fweeet! Fwe fwe fwe fweet fwe fwe fweet!

Buckler:
We swim through storms and wave all because you see... Grand treasure and adventure's waitin' just for me!

Athena:
Wow! That was awesome! Your performance packed quite a wallop!

Phoenix:
Yeah... I, for one, feel like I took quite a beating...

Buckler:
Sorry 'bout that! Can't have a show without a bad-guy role, right?

Phoenix:
But a singing orca, huh? It must've been tough to train her to do that.

Buckler:
That's Orla's best trick. She can only sing one song, though.

Phoenix:
(Well, she's still got one up on a pianist who can't play even one song...) Well, now that we've had a taste of the show, we'd better do some more investigating.

Athena:
Good idea. Let's go to the Aqua Tunnel!





July 20
Shipshape Aquarium - Aqua Tunnel

Fulbright:
So you all done investigating the pool already?

Phoenix:
We had a good look around, but now we're moving on to other areas.

Athena:
How is the police investigation going? Did you -- say, for example -- find any other suspects besides Orla...?

Fulbright:
Ha ha ha! Wouldn't that be fortunate for you if we did? But no, I'm afraid not. And even more unfortunate for you... ...I'm afraid we found decisive evidence of the orca's guilt.

Phoenix:
(What?!) P-Please tell us more, Detective!
