Max pleads that he was nowhere near the crime scene, and that he was at the ringmaster's office the whole time. He says he brought his stage clothes with him when he went to talk with Russell. Russell went outside, wearing Max's outfit, to do something. He looked a lot like Max. When the crime scene was investigated, only his silk hat was found, but where were his cloak and roses? This is a deep mystery indeed.
Moe the Clown is called to the stand. He makes a couple of jokes (that no one laughs at) before testifying about what he saw.
Moe's Testimony: What You Witnessed
What's this?! Did Moe just talk about his own problem? Let's try this again. Unfortunately for Gumshoe, Von Karma made a deal that the detective will listen to all of Moe's jokes after the court proceedings!
Moe's Testimony: What You Witnessed (for real this time)
The Judge warns you if you press Moe the wrong way (yes, press!) you will get penalized! Quite unfair, don't you think?
To help newcomers which statements to avoid: Don't agree to first statement on his eight o'clock joke and don't press statement 2. Pressing statement 6 should also be avoided, at least until you get more information. Especially choosing Of course I don't that involves a penalty.
What You Witnessed: Cross-examination
Press on Moe's third statement. Then, Keep pressing. Yesterday, Moe told you he heard a large "THUMP" outside. Moe says he forgot to mention it and revises his testimony.
- I heard a huge noise outside the window, and that's what made me take a look outside.
Press on that statement. Moe says it sounded like someone getting hit... hard.
Press statement six. Moe says he didn't see a murder weapon. Then what did he see? You ask him if he really did see the crime at all. Von Karma tells you if you can't answer, you will get an even larger penalty than usual - half of your health bar! When asked to accept the challenge, say "Of course I do!" Moe says he saw the crime scene AFTER Max "clonked" Russell dead, so he did not see the crime occurring!
Moe admits von Karma made him lie. However, he says he did see the silhouette. The Judge has Moe testify about the silhouette.
Moe's Testimony: The Silhouette
The Silhouette: Cross-examination
Present the Max G. Promo Poster on the second or third statement. Silk hat and a black cloak? What about the white roses? Moe says there weren't any roses there! Von Karma says it was too dark, but you say the roses were white. Von Karma then states that the roses fell off, but you say the police would've found them.
Recall Trilo's testimony. He said he saw all three symbols, but Moe now says he only saw two.
The Judge decides to hear another testimony from Moe.
Moe's Testimony: The Silhouette, Part 2
The judge warns you that if you make even one mistake, he will end the trial and declare his verdict!
For newcomers, it will be ideal not to press any statements! The reason is simply Franziska whips you and half your health bar drops! So don't bother with it because all statements act the same way.
The Silhouette, Part 2: Cross-examination
Present the Silk Hat on the fourth statement. The silk hat was found at the crime scene, but Moe says Max was wearing it the whole time. Moe insists that he saw Max wearing it the whole time.
Phoenix asks Moe how the murderer left the crime scene. Moe says he just turned and walked away. The Judge wants you to show evidence to counter this claim. Present the Crime Photo. You can see the victim's footprints, but where are the murderer's?
Moe decides to testify once more and promises to tell the truth this time. Von Karma made him hide the truth, but no more lies this time. She tells the Judge that he will have the same opinion as her: "It's not funny".
Moe's Testimony: The Truth
The murderer flew!? The Judge asks what you think of the testimony. Say whatever you want, as Franziska will call you a fool anyway.
The Judge wants to know how Max flew. He decides to adjourn court for today.
Max says he can't really fly; he just uses invisible strings that carry him through the air. You'll just have to find the real flying criminal and shoot him down (not literally, of course).
