* ''Oldbag'' of all people actually gets one during the third investigation day, when you prove beyond all doubt that Hammer drugged Powers, stole the Steel Samurai costume and tried to kill Vasquez. She's visibly crushed at the realisation that her idol committed some serious misdeeds, and subsequently spills the beans on the secrets that she's been keeping under wraps at Vasquez's bequest. It's probably the only time in the series when she seems genuinely human, instead of cartoonishly curmudgeonly or a StalkerWithACrush.

* ''Oldbag'' of all people actually gets one during the third investigation day, when you prove beyond all doubt that Hammer drugged Powers, stole the Steel Samurai costume and tried to kill Vasquez. She's visibly crushed at the realisation initially gives out her usual hair-trigger temper as her first response, which slowly fades to a sad resignation as she comes to accept that her beloved idol had committed some serious misdeeds, and subsequently spills the beans on the secrets that she's been keeping under wraps at Vasquez's bequest. It's probably the only time in the series when she seems genuinely human, instead of cartoonishly curmudgeonly or a StalkerWithACrush.
--> '''Oldbag''': ...I see. Poor, poor Hammer. You did wrong, Hammer, rest your soul. Okay, you win. I'll talk. I'm tired, see...Tired of holding it all in.

* Edgeworth losing his cool during the earthquake and feeling responsible for letting the suspect go. To top it all off, you will have to mention it during trial. And instead of a hug or a reasurring word from Phoenix, he gets [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan whipped.]]

* Edgeworth losing his cool panicking and fainting during the earthquake and feeling responsible for earthquake, letting Iris slip away [[spoiler:and trade places with Maya channeling Dahlia in the suspect go. To top it all off, you will Sacred Cavern]]. He kicks himself for the rest of the day over something he really couldn't have prevented. Then Phoenix has to mention bring it during trial. And instead of a hug or a reasurring word from Phoenix, he gets [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan whipped.]]up in court.
-->'''Phoenix''': (I'm sorry. I know you didn't mean to do it. It's not your fault.)

Added DiffLines:

* If you present Lana your attorney's badge when first seeing her at the beginning of the case, Phoenix comments on how he polishes his badge every day. She says, "In a few years, the gold plating will flake off. Then we'll see the real you. [...] Give it three years. Then we'll see what you have become." [[{{HarsherInHindsight}} Given what would eventually happen to Phoenix several years later and what it did to his reputation as a lawyer...]]

--> '''The Judge:''' [[WeUsedToBeFriends I knew you as you used to be, long ago. You were once a fine investigator, and an example to others on the force.]] [[BrokenPedestal I'm sorry to learn that you are no longer that person.]]
--> '''Gant:''' [[ThatManIsDead Those days are gone now, Udgey.]] Thanks for all the memories, though... Don't worry, you'll be fine! [[GracefulLoser Now you have Wrighto here... and Worthy. With these two around, you can't go wrong... You see, if I listen carefully, I can hear it right now... The sound of a new beginning! ]]

* Godot blaming Phoenix for the deaths of Mia and Maya. Even if you know it's not true, Phoenix still thinks he's responsible for what happened to them both. And then as it turns out, Godot was just outwardly blaming Phoenix to hide the fact that deep down inside, he's blaming ''himself'', even though neither him nor Phoenix could've stopped her death from happening. He may be a wise-cracking coffee addict who fearlessly looks a Mafia/yakuza thug in the eye, [[SadClown but he's one of the most tragic characters in the game]].
