** Adding to that scene is that Regina is dragging herself against a wall during that, trying to reach Acro before he's gone. It seems the guilt is literally weighing her down but she wants to at least get to Acro before he's gone for who knows how long.


** It gets even worse when you realize Morgan's comments about Misty and Mia Fey were all references to the DL-6 incident. Her scathing remarks about them departing shows that she is more concerned on how they violated the Kurian rules rather than how the incident affected the entire Fey clan. Adding to the crimes she was later involved in really rubs in how horrible of a person [[EvilAunt Morgan Fey]] is.

She doesn't understand why Phoenix would celebrate and believes she doesn't have what it takes to be a lawyer, tossing her whip aside. As antagonistic as she was, it's clear that the pressure of being a Von Karma and beating Edgeworth pushed her over the edge. It takes a very stern talk from Edgeworth at the airport and Franziska [[CryCute crying]] to get her resolve back, but if that hadn't happened, she would've given up her entire career.

* The sixth episode of Season 2 brings a bit more of the life of Phoenix, Larry and Edgeworth during the time they were separated. Phoenix and Larry are clearly very sad over the fact Edgeworth left without leaving any means to contact them, and wonder if they're doing alright.

* The death of Terry Fawles - a sad moment in game - is even sadder when animated. Mia actually falls to her knees, screaming his name and begging him to open his eyes as he dies on her lap, while Dahlia smiles in triumph. Diego Armando's words of 'comfort' ("The only time a man can cry is when it's all over") happen in the vacant courtroom afterward, where a young Edgeworth happens to overhear. There's no question how deeply all of them have been affected by Dahlia's scheming.

* Godot admitting to everything after Case 3-5 has been deduced by Phoenix gets taken up a notch when Godot cries. In the game, a stream of red runs down his cheek, making Phoenix believe his wound opened. Godot says that it must be his tears, echoing from an earlier case that a lawyer can only cry when it's all over. The anime makes Godot's tears appear reddish at first, but then they become clear, suggesting that he's actually crying and his tears were merely running down his wound.
