Student: Did you see that?

Student: Yes! Yes!

Student: What?

Student: Don't you know that foreigner?

Student: Foreigner?

Student: Yeah, that transferee to 2nd year Class A last week.

Student: She's cool!

Student: I hear she's called Soryuu Asuka Langley.

Student: Definitely cute.

Student: Since she's returned to her homeland after living abroad, maybe
        she's more mature than us?

Student: Don't be silly.
        I'd guess someone broke her heart and now she's trying to forget
        him here, in a different land.

Students: WOW!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Kensuke: Even the cats are saying, "Asuka, Asuka."

Touji:  Everyone is peaceful!

Kensuke: Thank you!

     # Kensuke is giving /selling Asuka's photos which he took on the
     #ship.

Touji: Those pictures don't show what her personality is really like.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Hello, Shinji!

Shinji: gggg

Asuka:  Guten Morgen!

Shinji: Guu... guuten morugenn.

Asuka:  Again! Your face is always gloomy in the morning.
        This is _me_ that's saying hello to you,
        and you should feel glad because of it.
        And there must be one more...

Shinji: Who?

Asuka:  Silly boy!
        I'm talking about the First Children.

Shinji: Oh, Ayanami is..

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Hello! You are Ayanami Rei, the pilot of the prototype unit.
        I am Asuka, Souryuu Asuka Langray, the pilot of Eva Unit Two.
        Let's be good friends!

Rei:    Why?

Asuka:  'Cuz it'd be convenient for various reasons.

Rei:    If ordered to, I will.

Asuka:  Strange girl.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Touji:  That makes sense. I mean, that strange people would be selected as
        Eva pilots.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ritsuko: Hmm...?

Ritsuko: You've become thinner?

Ritsuko: Is that right?

Ryouji: You're in a sad sort of love.

Ritsuko: And how do you know that?

Ryouji: Because those with a mole along the path of tears are destined to
        live a life full of them.

Ritsuko: Are you trying to seduce me? It won't work--that horrible lady is
        staring...

Misato: uuuu.

Ristuko: Long time no see, Kaji-kun.

Ryouji: Yeah, long time no see.

Ritsuko: However, you're being rather silly.

Misato: He's always been silly.
        Your mission to bring Unit Two here is complete.
        You have to return home!

Ryouji: I received an official notice of transfer this morning, so actually
        I have to stay here. I'm lucky that we can be as we once were.

Misato: Who'd want to with you?


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shigeru: Report from Cruiser XXXXXX on watch:
        "Gigantic underwater object discovered off Kii Peninsula. Sending
        data."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Makoto: The received data has been analyzed.
        Wavelength pattern, blue.
        It's been identified as an Angel.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: The interception system of Third New Tokyo City was heavily damaged
        in the previous battle. Only 26% has been restored. The amount of
        operable equipment in an actual battle is almost nil, so we must
        destroy the target before it lands on the waterfront. Unit One
        and Unit Two, countinual attacks in turn. Close-quarter combat!

Shinji & Asuka: Roger!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Since this is my first battle in Japan, why aren't I allowed to
        fight it alone?

Shinji: No way, this has all been planned.

Asuka:  I'll tell you this: don't do anything to disturb me.

Shinji: Fine.

Asuka:  Why were you ever selected as a pilot?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  It's not the way of the warrior to attack in pairs.
        It's not my preference.

Misato: We haven't got the reserves to choose another way, just one:
         survive!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: Ah, it's coming!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: Start the attack!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Okay, here I go! Cover me!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: Oh, I'm covering you?

Asuka:  It's ladies first!

Shinji: Damn it! The newcomer shouldn't be leading me.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  I've got it!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: Oh!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: Oh, no!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: GOOD JOB!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Did you see that, Third Children!
        Combat must always be elegant and without waste.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: Oh!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  What?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: That's unfair!

* The angel separated into two parts and each attacked each Eva.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Maya:   10:58.15 A.M. today.
        Unit One was attacked by one of halves, say A, of the separated target,
        and sank at a point 2 kilometers from Surugawan Bay.
        10:58.20 A.M. Unit Two ceased operation after an attack by the other
        half, say B.

Maya:   Now for comments by the people responsible for the operation.

Ritsuko: It looks bad.

Asuka:  It's because of you that my debut battle was severely ruined!

Shinji: You can't say that! It's Souryuu who was being foolish!

Asuka:  Foolish?! How can such an awkward boy say that?
        That's too rude!

Shinji: You stop being rude! You were too hasty to fight it, and it's the
        result that matters.

Asuka:  What was that? Something like floating corps in the sea!
        It was dishonourable!

Shinji: You can't say that to me!

Maya:   Nerv aborted the operation at 11:03 A.M.
        Command was passed to the U.N. Second force.

Fuyuzuki: They're humilitating us.

Maya:   At 11:05, the target was attacked with an N2 bomb.

Fuyuzuki: We have to update the map.

Maya:   They succeeded in destroying 28% of the component substances.

Asuka:  They've finished it off?

Fuyuzuki: The U.N. just kept it from immediately walking to Nerv HQ.
        Its next attack is simply a matter of time.

Ryouji: Well, we've earned time to prepare. That's fortunate.

Fuyuzuki: Listen to me! Do you know what your task is?

Asuka:  To pilot Eva.
Fuyuzuki: No! To defeat Angels.
        Nerv's doesn't exist so you can perform such dishonourable
        deeds. Therefore, you must co-operate and--

Shinji & Asuka: Why do I have to co-operate with this kind of person?!

Fuyuzuki: Stop!

Asuka: Why are you getting angry?

Ryouji: Adults don't like being humiliated.

Shinji: Excuse me, but where is Misato-san?

Ryouji: Settling things. The responsible officer bears all responsibility.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ritsuko: These papers are protests and reports of damage from the
        ministries concerned. And this is the claimed payment from the
        UN. And these are complaints from the publicity section.

Misato: Hmmm.

Ritsuko: You have to read through these.

Misato: I know what they'll say without reading them.
        They say, "In battle, fight here."

Ritsuko: Good guess.

Misato: After this Angel has been taken care of, I'll do my fighting
        here, orders or not. I will kill this Angel!

Ritsuko: The vice-commander is furious!
        There's no doubt you will be transferred if you humiliate him again.

Misato: Then there's good luck hidden in the misfortune of Commander
        Ikari's absence.

Ritsuko: You would have been fired even before he'd read these...

Misato: But you're kind enough to bring me some clever idea to help me
        avoid being fired...

Ritsuko: Only one.

Misato: You're wonderful! Dr. Akagi Ritsuko, it's good to have a kind,
        old friend!

Ritsuko: You are mistaken. It's not me who is helping an old friend out of
         a tight spot. This idea is Kaji-kun's.

Misato: Kaji's...?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: Hello, I'm back... But no one's here...
        WOW! What are these?
Asuka:  Don't be rude! This is my luggage.

Shinji: What... What made you put it here?

Asuka:  Why you are still here?

Shinji: Still here?

Asuka:  You've been kicked out.

Shinji: Eh? Ah!

Asuka:  Misato is going to live with me.
        Well, it's the natural choice considering which of us is better.
        In truth, though, I wanna live with Kaji-san... Japanese-style
        rooms are rather tiny-- they're not large enough for half of my
        baggage.

Shinji: Ah!! Oh, no!

Asuka:  And why are Japanese people so reckless?
        How can you can live in a room without a lock?
        Unbelievable!

Misato: The Japanese way is kindness and guessing other's wishes.

Shinji & Asuka: Misato-san!

Misato: How are you! You two are getting along well.

Shinji: What do you mean?

Asuka:  What?

Misato: This is the preparation for the next operation.

Shinji & Asuka: Why?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: The seventh Angel has only one weakness: a concentrated, two-point
        attack to the core during separation. That's the only way.
        In other words, an attack by two Evas with completely syncronized
        timing.

Shinji & Asuka: Well...

Misato: So, you two are going to live together from now on.

Shinji & Asuka: Oh, no!

Asuka:  No! I won't accept that. You know that men and women must not
        live together after the age of seven. That's the proverb.

Misato: The angel is proceeding with self-restoration.
        The second attack is predicted to be in six days.
        We have no time.

Asuka:  This is insane!

Misato: Well, the only way to accomplish this insanity is to master an
        attack pattern harmonized to this music, as soon as possible
        within the six days!

Shinji: Well...

Asuka:  No!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Touji:  I'm worried about how Shinji is doing...

Kensuke: He's been absent from school for the last three days.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Touji:  Oh, it's the Class Representative.

Hikari: Two of the Idiot Trio.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Touji:  Why is the Class Rep here?

Hikari: I'm going to inquire after Soryuu-san.
        I'm wondering why you are here.

Kensuke: To inquire after Ikari-kun.

Three:  What are you doing here?!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji & Asuka: Hi!

Touji:  You're betraying us!

Kensuke: The two of them look like a they're a couple.
        I must be imagining things...

Shinji & Asuka: This is being forced on us by Misato-san, who insists that
        Japanese should begin with pattern.

Hikari: You two are acting impure!

Shinji & Asuka: It's a misunderstanding!

Hikari: It's neither a mis-UNDER-standing nor a mis-OVER-standing!

Misato: Ah, welcome!

Touji:  Please, tell us what's going on here!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Touji & Kensuke & Hikari: (Laughter)

Touji:  You should have said that in the first place!

Hikari: And the attempt at unison is going well?

Misato: Just as you see here.

Touji & Kensuke & Hikari: Hmm...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  It's a simple fact! It's impossible for me to be as low-level
        as Shinji is!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: Then you're giving up?

Asuka:  There's no one else.

Misato: Rei!

Rei:    Yes.

Misato: You try.

Rei:    Yes.

Asuka:  Ah...

Asuka:  Aha...

Touji & Kensuke & Hikari: Hmm...

Misato: Then we'd better change the plan so you'll have to pair up
        with Rei.

Asuka:  No! I can't go on!

Shinji: Oh.

Hikari: Ah, Asuka-san!

Touji:  Tears in a demon's eye...

Hikari: Ikari-kun!

Shinji: Well...

Hikari: You have to go after her!

Shinji: What?

Hikari: You're responsible for her tears.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: Well, umm..

Asuka:  Don't say anything.
        I know... I know I must pilot Eva.
        I will-- I will do it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  I must triumph over them! I must!

Shinji: Oh, no, wanting to triumph over them is not good...

Asuka:  Even for a man, you're being too simplistic!
        I want revenge for my injured pride!

Shinji: WOW..

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Where's Misato?

Shinji: At work. An overnight job, she said on the phone.

Asuka:  Then we'll be alone tonight.

Shinji: WOW! Oh, no!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: What?

Asuka:  This is the unbreakable wall of Jerico.

Shinji: What?

Asuka:  If you invade my side over this wall, you shall be executed.
        A child must not be awake late at night. Go to bed!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Who do Japanese sleep on the floor? Unbelievable!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: Ummm...

Shinji: Hmmm...

Shinji: Oh...

Asuka:  Ah...

Shinji: Wow!

Asuka:  Mom! Mommy!

Asuka:  Hmmm...

Shinji: You are a child as well...

#  Shinji tried to kiss Asuka, but stopped, because she uttered "Mom"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Misato: No, someone is staring.

Ryouji: Who?

Misato: Who? Oh, mmm...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: No. We're no longer together.
         I beg you not to do this again.

Ryouji: Your lips don't say "stop"...

Misato: uuuu...

Ryouji: Your lips or your words... Which should I trust?

Misato: mmmm...

Misato: mmmm...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ritsuko: Here you go.

Misato: Thanks.

Ritsuko: At night, it's rare to see you sober.

Misato: Mmm, there's this tiny thing...

Ritsuko: Business? Or a man?

Misato: Well, many things.

Ritsuko: Hmmm, still in love?

Misato: Bahh, don't say such things. Who could love that kind of guy!
        No matter how young I was, it's still the biggest taint on my
        life!

Ritsuko: I was talking about Kaji-kun. You seem moved.

Misato: You were...

Ritsuko: Your anger proves I touched a nerve.

Misato: Hmm...

Ritsuko: You should be more frank. Things have changed from that time
        eight years ago.

Misato: Nothing's changed. He's still immature.
        Here I go: business, business. Tomorrow is the day of final battle!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Staff:  Target has broken through the final defensive line at Gora.

Misato: That thing is coming! We won't fail this time.
        When the music starts, expand the AT-field and
        then just follow the plan. You two ready?

Shinji & Asuka: Roger!

Staff:  Target invading the mountain region.

"Maintain area" or something is better. The place with many mountains.

Asuka:  Are you all right? Full power and full performance from the start!

Shinji: I know. Everything will be over in 62 seconds.

Staff:  Target arriving at Zero Area!

Misato: External power....

Misato: Go!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
        Music and Dance

Staff:  Eva One and Two recognized.

Misato: Oh, no!

Ritsuko: Ugly!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: Hmm, what?

Asuka:  What are you doing on my Unit Two?

Shinji: No! You hit me first!

Asuka:  It's you that first lost the timing.
        You're always so dull!
        What were you doing last night if not sleeping!

Shinji: I was image training for today's battle!

Asuka:  You're lying! You tried to kiss me on the lips!

Shinji: Not fair! You were awake at the time?

Asuka:  That's horrible! I meant it as a joke! You really did it?
        You kissed me?

Shinji: No, I didn't. I stopped.

Asuka:  Ha! Mean! Fool! Dispicable, crazy boy! Unbelievable!

Shinji: gggggggg ah!

Spectators: (Laughter)

Shinji: And you're so childish, you cried for "Mommy"!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Fuyuzuki: They're humilitating us again...

Asuka:  Hmm... I'm so lucky Kaji-san is shopping with me...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ryouji: Wow, what! Here's the swimsuit section.

Asuka:  Hey, how 'bout this?

Ryouji: Ah, no. You're a Junior High school student, far too young to have
        that.

Asuka:  Oh, you're just an old man, too out-of-date.
        These days, suits like this are quite common.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ryouji: Oh, is that so?

Asuka:  A school trip is something special!
        We're supposed to refresh ourselves!

Ryouji: Where are you going on this school excursion?

Asuka:  O-ki-na-wa!
        We're gonna be scuba-diving!

Ryouji: Hmm, scuba-diving...
        It's been three years since went I diving...

Asuka:  Hey, where'd you go for your school excursion?

Rouji:  I never got to go on one.

Asuka:  How come?

Ryouji: Because of the Second Impact.

PenPen: hmm. qua.

Asuka:  Oh, no!

PenPen: gwa!

Asuka:  We can't go on the school trip?

PenPen: Gwa Gwa.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: Right.

Asuka:  Why not?

Misato: You have to wait here in case of attack.

Asuka:  I wasn't told anything about that!

Misato: So I just told you.

Asuka:  Who decided this?

Misato: Me, the Operations Planning Manager.

Asuka:  Hmm... Hey, you. Don't just drink tea.
        Say something to her.
        You're a man!

Shinji: Oh, I kinda figured something like this would happen.

Asuka:  So you've already given up on the excursion?

Shinji: Yeah.

Asuka:  Oh, no! That's pitiful! A tamed man is the worst type!

Shinji: Don't put it like that.

Misato: I know how much you want to go, but there's no other way.
        An angel is likely to attack us while you're away on the
        excursion.

PenPen: Ksh, Ksh, Quye, Cuo!

Asuka:  We always have to wait, wait, wait, wait!
        We're always waiting for an enemy whose appearances we can't
        predict!
        Can't you figure out where they are and attack them first?

Misato: If we could, we would.
        Well, I guess you must think that this will be a good chance--
        after all, while the others are away, you can get some studying done.
        Did you think I didn't know about that?

Shinji: Ah, no!

Misato: You do realize that I know everything even without you telling me.
        I can easily access any information on your exam results.

Asuka:  Phew! You idiot!
        What's the point of school!

Misato: In Rome, do what the Romans do.
        I do hope you're used to school life in Japan...

Asuka:  Screw you...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hikari: Asuka, I'll bring you a souvenir!

Kensuke: I feel so sorry for the two of you...

Touji:   We'll be sure to enjoy your parts as well as ours...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Operator: Hurry, send the Mt. Asamayama data from Bartasaar to Mercior.

Makoto: (laughs)

Shigeru:(laughs)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ritsuko:A school excursion?
        They relax too much in times like these.

Misato: That's because in times like these, they want to play whenever
        they get a chance to play.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Asuka:  What'cha doin'?

Shinji: Studying science.

Asuka:  Aren't you a smart man!

Shinji: But I have to be. Oh!

Asuka:  Hey, look!
        Since I can't go scuba diving at Okinawa, I'll dive here.

Shinji: I see.

Asuka:  Hmm, lemme see. What are you trying to do?
        Can't you solve an equation this easy?
        All right, here's the answer.

Shinji: Eh!

Shinji: It's simple!

Shinji: How can you solve this when you bombed the exam at school?

Asuka:  I couldn't figure out what was written on the exam.

Shinji: You're saying you weren't able to read the questions in Japanese?

Asuka:  That's right. I haven't mastered Kanji.
        I never studied Kanji at the university back home.

Shinji: University?

Asuka:  Yeah, I graduated last year.
        What's written here?

Shinji: It's a problem regarding thermo-expansion.

Asuka:  Thermo-expansion? How childish!
        In short, things expand when warmed, and contract when cooled.

Shinji: I know that, but...

Asuka:  In my case, do you think my breasts might get bigger when they're
        warmed?

Shinji: Don't ask me, I've no idea!

Asuka:  Nothing about you interests me at all.

Shinji: What?

Shinji: Eh?

Asuka:  Look! Look, Shinji!

Shinji: Hmm?

Asuka:  Backroll Entry!

Shinji: <sighs>

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Fuyuzuki:This does not give us a clear image.

Shigeru: Yes, but this spot must have some importance, if it's reported by
         Asamayama Earthquake Research Institute.

Fuyuzuki: Indeed, we cannot ignore it.

Ritsuko: What did Magi judge?

Maya:   Fifty-fifty.

Fuyuzuki: Is someone there?

Shigeru: Captain Katsuragi has already arrived there.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Researcher: That's the limit!

Misato: Continue. 500 more.

Operator: Depth 1200. Anti-pressure armour cracked.

Researcher: Katsuragi-san!

Misato: If it's destroyed, we'll compensate you for it. 200 more, please.

Makoto: Signal on monitor!

Misato: Start analysis.

Makoto: Yes.

Operator: Probe has been compressed and crushed. It exploded.

Misato: Status of analysis?

Makoto: Finished barely in time.
        Pattern Blue!

Misato: No doubt. That's an Angel.
        As of now, this lab is completely closed and under Nerv's
        control. No entry to the room will be permitted, and all events
        from the past six hours are to be kept secret from the outside.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: Quickly, demand A17 from Commander Ikari.

Shigeru: Take care! That's a normal line.

Misato: I know, hurry and switch to a secure line.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Comittee member: A17?

Committe member: A pre-emptive strike?

Gendou: Yes.

Member: Not acceptable! It's too dangerous! You cannot say you have
        forgotten that case 15 years ago.

Gendou: It's an opportunity!
        We've been doing nothing but defending, but we can go on the
        offensive if...

Kirl:   You risk too much!

Gendou: But you know how important getting a sample of a living Angel is.

Kirl:   Failure will not be tolerated.

Fuyuzuki: Failure? If we fail, humanity will cease to exist!
        You'd really risk that?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: This is an Angel?

Ritsuko:Yes. It's something like a chrysalis stage before adulthood.
        The top priority for this operation is to trap the Angel,
        capturing it alive and preserving its original condition
        as much as possible.

Asuka:  If we screw up...?

Ritsuko: Annihilate it as quickly as you can!  All right?

Shinji & Rei & Asuka: Yes.

Ritsuko: Who will carry out the mission?

Asuka:  It's me! I'll dive!

Shinji: But, it must be me.

Ritsuko: Asuka.

Shinji: Oh.

Ritsuko: You'll carry out the mission in Unit Two.

Asuka:  Yes. It'll be easy!

Rei:    What will I do?

Maya:   Prototype Unit Zero does not conform to the standards required by
        the special equipment.

Ritsuko: Then I order Rei and Unit Zero to remain at Headquarters.

Rei:    Yes.

Asuka:  It's such a shame that you can't go to the hot springs.

Ritsuko: Since A17 has been ordered, we will leave as soon as possible.
        Be ready.

Shinji & Asuka: Yes.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Oh, this anti-heat plug suit is no different than the normal one.

Ritsuko: Switch on at the right.

Asuka:  Oh, no! What's this!

Balloon like ugly suit.

Ritsuko: Unit Two is ready.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Oh, no! What's this!

Ritsuko: Special anti-heat, pressure, and radiation suit.
        The Type-D equipment for extreme regions.

Asuka:  That's my Unit Two?
        No, I don't want to go.
        I can't let myself be seen in public!
        Let Shinji do it!

Ryouji: That's a real pity.
        I was looking forward to Asuka's mighty deeds.

Asuka:  Oh, no, I don't have that courage to appear before Kaji-san like
        this.

Maya:   Hmmm... a problem.

Ritsuko: Well... yes.

Shinji:  Then I'll do it.

Rei:    I'll go with Unit Two.

Asuka:  Mmmm...
        Sorry, but I'm not letting you touch my Unit Two.
        I'll go, not the First.
        Just ignore this awful appearence.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Operator: Eva Unit One and Unit Two have arrived.

Misato: Both Units wait at the position.
        Quickly prepare the laser shot and crane.

Makoto: Roger.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Oh, where's Kaji-san?

Misato: That idiot refused to come--there's nothing for him to do.

Asuka:  Damn it! I wanted him to see me succeed.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Woman:  A17 was ordered. That includes freezing the present assets.

Ryouji: Many people are troubled by this.

Woman:  Why didn't you stop him?

Ryouji: There was no reason to. The order is official.

Woman:  But Nerv's failure would mean the annihilation of the world.

Ryouji: They are not that arrogant.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Shinji: What's that?

Ritsuko: The UN Air Force is watching, waiting above us.

Maya:   Until the end of this operation.

Asuka:  They'll help us?

Ritsuko: No, they will finish things--

Maya:   --if we fail.

Asuka:  What do you mean?

Ritsuko: They'll bomb both us and the Angel with an N2 explosive.

Asuka:  That's terrible!

Shinji: Who would order such a thing?

Ritsuko: Commander Ikari.

Shinji: Bastard...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Operator: Laser operation complete.

Shigeru: Course secured.

Maya:   Type-D equipment checks out.

Makoto: Unit Two in ready position.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: Roger.
        Asuka, are you ready?

Asuka:  Anytime.

Misato: Go!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Asuka:  Oh, looks hot!

Maya:   Unit Two entering lava.

Asuka:  Look! Look, Shinji!

Shinji: What?

Asuka:  Giant Stroke Entry!

Shinji: Ah, no...

Asuka:  Present depth 170, speed of descent 20. All systems nominal.
        Visibility is zero--I can't see a thing. Switching to CT monitor,
        but I'm still limited to 120...

Maya:   Depth is 400, 450, 500, 550, 600, 650...

Maya:   900, 950, 1000, 1020.
        Exceeding safety depth.
        Depth 1300: predicted target position.

Misato: Asuka, can you see anything?

Asuka:  Nothing detected. No one's here.

Ritsuko: Lava flow is faster than expected.

Makoto: Target's rate of movement is different from the prediction.

Misato: Hurry with the recalculation! Continue operation.
        Descend further.

Makoto: Eh?!

Maya:   Depth 1350, 1400...

Operator: Second circulation pipe cracked.

Maya:   Depth 1480. Exceeding maximum depth.

Misato: We haven't encountered the target. Continue.
        Asuka, what's your situation?

Asuka:  Still holding out. I wanna finish this job and have a shower.

Misato: I know a good hot spring near here. Let's go after the mission.
        Hang on, just a little more.

Asuka:  Haa... n?

Maya:   Maximium depth plus 120.

Asuka:  Well?

Operator: Eva Unit Two lost the Prog knife.

Maya:   Maximum depth plus 200.

Makoto: Katsuragi-san, no more!
        The device is manned this time!

Misato: I am in command of this operation. Continue.

Asuka:  Yes, it is, but there's no problem. I can go further.

Maya:   Depth 1780: predicted target position after recalculation.

Asuka:  There it is!

Makoto: Target in sight.

Misato: Prepare for capture.

Ritsuko: Both you and the target are driven by the flow,
        so there's only one chance for contact.

Asuka:  I know. Trust me!

Makoto: 30 to the target contact.

Asuka:  Relative speed 2.2. Target in range.

Asuka:  Expanding electromagnetic cage... No problems. Target captured.

Maya:   Oh...

Makoto: Phew!

Misato: Nice, Asuka!

Asuka:  Phew! Capture operation complete. Ascending.

Shinji: Asuka, are you all right?

Asuka:  No question of that--giving birth's easier than worrying...
        To me, this was a simple task.
        However, this is more like a sauna suit than a plug suit--
        I definitely wanna go to the hot spring!

Ritsuko: The tension seems to have suddenly vanished.

Misato: Really?

Ritsuko: You feared the result of today's operation?

Misato: Well, yes. If we messed up, another one of...

Ritsuko: Yes, a Second Impact... I'd never want that again.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: What?

Ritsuko: Ah!

Asuka:  What's this?

Ritsuko: Oh, no, it's begun to emerge earlier than calculated.

Misato: Cage status?

Makoto: It cannot withstand it.

Misato: Abort the capture. Drop the cage!

Asuka:  No!

Misato: Change of operation. Annihilation of Angel is the number one
        priority. Unit Two, withdraw and prepare for battle.

Asuka:  I've been waiting for this!

Asuka:  Oh, idiot, I dropped the knife!
        Approaching from the front!
        Releasing ballasts.

Misato: Asuka, Unit One will drop its knife. Catch it!

Asuka:  Roger!
        Damn, you launched Shinji, didn't you?

Shinji: Yeah!

Operator: 40 to the knife's arrival.

Makoto: Angel approaching rapidly.

Asuka:  No, don't come!
        Hey, hurry! Too late!

Asuka:  What the hell!

Ritsuko: Unbelievable. It opened its mouth.

Maya:   What an incredible structure it has.

Asuka:  mmm...

Maya:   Right leg damaged.

Asuka:  Anti-heat process!
        Shit!

Ritsuko: High temperature and high pressure--
        the target can withstand those critical attacks.
        The Prog knife is ineffective!

Makoto: Then, what can we...

Shinji: I've got it!

Asuka:  Me, too!
        This guy!

Ritsuko: I understand. Thermal expansion!

Asuka:  All cooling liquid pressure to third pipe, hurry!

Asuka:  WOW! gggggg
        phew!

Asuka:  I did it but...
        is it really over?

Asuka:  gggg.

Asuka:  Phew, Shinji!
        Idiot! You didn't have to do that!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Courier: Hello, is there anybody here from Nerv?

Shinji: Yes.

Courier: Then sign here please.
        Thank you.

Shinji: From Kaji-san? What?

PenPen: WeWeWeWe
        Aw Aw Aw.

Shinji: The bath there, to the left.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
PenPen: PRRRRRRRR, PRR PRR.

Shinji: Phew... this is heaven!

PenPen: KwKwKw Kwk

Shinji: I never thought bathing could be this pleasant.

Misato: Shinji-kun, can you hear me?

Shinji: Ah, yes!

Misato: Toss the body shampoo over to us.

Asuka:  The one we brought ran out.

Shinji: Okay. Here it comes!

Asuka:  Roger!

Shinji: ??

Asuka:  Ouch!
        Stupid! Watch your aim! Clumsy boy!

Shinji: Sorry...

Asuka:  Don't hit me on that part.

Misato: Oh, which part...?

Asuka:  aaa... hnnn.

Misato: Hey! Asuka's bubbly skin is funny!

Asuka:  No, don't touch me, I'm ticklish! Oh!

Misato: How about here?

Asuka:  (laughs)

Misato: How about here?

Asuka:  Don't touch me there.

Misato: You lose nothing by that anyway...

Shinji: What?

PenPen: Kw.

Shinji: Ah, no!
        Expanding... how embarrassing.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Misato: Oh, this? A teensy something from the Second Impact.

Asuka:  You know, don't you, about me?

Misato: Well, that's my business.
        Don't worry. It happened a long time ago.
