Miles, circa Turnabout Samurai: by the way, Franziska…just checking but uh. if i asked, would you still concuss me with a fire extinguisher 

Franziska: what are you talking about, Miles Edgeworth

: …………..never mind

i’d like to think that Miles, as Chief Prosecutor, institutes some kind of protocol on how to handle children who are suddenly left with no guardian in the courthouse

no one tries to find Kay or anything? she’s just roaming around after her father dies? after Zak vanishes Phoenix is like “uh i guess i could adopt you or like…put you up in a hotel or something???” like this child’s care totally falls on the shoulders of a kind unemployed stranger

why is no one prepared to deal with this. no wonder Manfred von Karma could just walk off with someone else’s kid
