* When Phoenix is still deciding whether to take the case, Gumshoe warns him that if he loses such a high-profile case, his reputation will suffer. Doesn't it seem a bit odd that the opposite isn't true, and that Phoenix's reputation isn't bolstered by not only exonerating Edgeworth of a murder everyone was all but certain he was guilty of, but also solving a 15-year-old case in the process?

* In the class trial, I recall there was someone in the class saying, "Give my money back!" Or something similar to that. I didn't really care about it, but then it was revealed that it was Edgeworth's money that was stolen, and he believed in Phoenix's innocence since there weren't any evidence to prove his guilt. Then, what was that shout and who said that? I don't think Edgeworth would say something like that if he truly believed in Phoenix.

** Yogi burned off his fingerprints so that he couldn't be identified, which indicates to me that he was acting senile to ''hide'' his identity, rather than to make people think he'd been brain-damaged in the incident (which would require ''maintaining'' his identity).

** The answer is just that Phoenix knows there's a woman that looks '''a lot''' like Dahlia and knows him from somewhere despite denying that she attended the same university as him. Not only that - [[spoiler:he didn't know Dahlia was hanged until Edgeworth told him late in the second day of investigation in 3-5]]. For all Phoenix knew, it looked like Dahlia was back and had dyed her hair black. Pay attention to his reaction upon seeing Iris in the newspaper article Pearl brought at the start of 3-5, and it makes more sense.

*** And how would she pull this off? Morgan didn't even know Phoenix would be there at Hazakura, and she had one shot, i doubt Pearl would ever call Dahlia again if she killed someone. Frameups are by their nature much more complicated than simple murders, she couldn't order Dahlia to kill Phoenix and frame Maya and expect reasonable chance of success. And her plan was made on short notice just before she was sent to prison, she didn't have time or resources to hatch anything more complicated than "call Dahlia in Hazakura, tell her to kill Maya, everyone will think it was Iris, so you'll be safe".

*** I'm pretty sure this is right. [=IIRC=], Grey mentions to Phoenix that he heard about Kurain "from an acquaintance," so it's not too hard to assume that this "acquaintance" was Ini [[spoiler:or actually, Mimi]], and go from there.

** Also, worth noting that Godot acts rather condescending towards Dessie in case 3-2, too. The wording of his comments was something along the lines of her being a good wife and swooping in to save her husband, which could easily be read as her "[[UnfortunateImplications knowing her place]]" if you're not especially charitable.

*** The above is the direction that [[Anime/AceAttorney the 2016 anime]] ran with -- as soon as word got out that they'd consulted a medium, even though it was just for reference, the whole thing became a public joke and Misty was permanently disgraced.



** They probably hoped for an answer besides "it's the guy you already thought it was." They probably wanted to hear that it was some option they'd never considered, or someone who entered the elevator after it was opened, rather than some answer that anyone could have made up. Since it was the obvious answer, they figured it was worthless testimony and a waste of everyone's time.

*** The lightning roused Larry from a deep sleep, he craned his neck to see what was going on for a few moments as the bridge was going up in flames, and he snapped awake when he saw what appeared to be a [[spoiler: person flying]], immediately sat up, and sketched the sketch. Not only is it incredibly easy to assume that Larry has misrepresented or inadequately explained his testimony due to having just woke up (and being Larry), it's not that hard to think of a dozen ways those events could have occured that match his testimony as-is.

*** '''''HOLD IT!''''' If it were a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thundersnow thundersnow]], there were probably ''several'' lightning strikes with associated thunder. He woke up at one of the earlier strikes and just happened to be looking outside to see the bolt that struck the bridge.

** "Why do you look so tired all the time, adopted son?" "Well, I keep having these nightmares where I'm in the elevator and I throw a gun and I hear it go off, and then I hear a man scream..." "... They're just nightmares. Don't let them bother you."

** That was probably the reason they attempted to channel Gregory's spirit, hoping for some lead they wouldn't be able to find any other way.

** Or his cravat? There's probably a reason he carries at least a yard of clean cloth on him at all times...
