Evangelion Episode 15

        Avant Title

Fuyuzuki:       Second and Third Lake Ashinoko.
                I don't want any more of them.
                Yesterday, A complaint came from Chairman Keel,
                directly to me.
                He was very upset.
                Towards the end he hinted at your dismissal.

Ikari:        Adam is going well.  As for the Eva project, we've begun
                work on the Dummy Plug.
                What are the old men of Seele complaining about?

Fuyuzuki:     The most important, The Human Instrumentality Project,
                is behind schedule.

Ikari:          All the projects are coupled together.
                There are no problems.

Fuyuzuki:       You also mean Rei?
                By the way, how shall we deal with that man?

Ikari:          Let him do as he likes.
                the same for the Marduk Institute.

Fuyuzuki:       We can make use of him for a while.



Ryouji:         What started here 16 years ago?

        Episode: 15

        Lie and Sil

Woman:         It's me.

Ryouji:         Oh, is that you?

Woman:          Shannon Bio Inc. A foreign capitol Chemical company.
                It's been here for 9 years, with no changes for 9 years.
                Among the 108 enterprises connected to Marduk Institute,
                106 were dummies.

Ryouji:         So, you're saying this is the 107th?

Woman:          The company's registration record...

Ryouji:         You're going to say "look at the list of directors"

Woman:          You already know about that?

Ryouji:         I know most of the names.
                Marduk Institute, a consultative firm established
                directly under The Human Intstrumentality Committee
                in order to select the pilots of Evangelion.
                The form of the system has not been revealed.

Woman:          Your job is to spy on NERV. It's dangerous to
                disturb Marduk.

Ryouji:         Well, I can't seem to keep from investigating everything


Answering Machine: Hello. This is Kaji's. I am out at the moment, but
                you can leave your name and message.

Asuka:          AH!  Help me Kaji-san! What are you doing,
                you pervert! AAAAAA!

Hikari:         What happened?

Asuka:          I've wanted Kaji-san to take me somewhere tomorrow, Sunday.
                I gave him a call, but he's been away for so long.
                These days, he's always out.

Hikari:         That means, you have nothing to do tomorrow.

Asuka:          It's regrettable, but true.

Hikari:         Then, I have a favor to ask you.

Asuka:          What is it?

Hikari:         I mean..

Asuka:          Oh! A date?

Hikari:         It's a friend of my sister Kodama.
                He said: "You must introduce her to me!"

# Hikari's elder sister is named Kodama.
# Hikari's younger sister is named Nozomi.
# These are the names of Japan's bullet trains.
# Kodama (Local Express), Hikari (Super Express), Nozomi (Super-Super Express)


Touji:          Meeen!

# The word used when one hits with sword in Japanese Kendo swordmanship.
# "Men" originally meant the protector-mask, or simply a mask.

Shinji:         Oh!

Touji:          Do your job!

Shinji:         Sorry.

Hikari:         You should know your job is to clean the room!

Announce:       Microsis operation complete.
Announce:       Inversable graph measurement complete.
Announce:       ... Synchro-position is normal.

Ritsuko:        Which dress will you wear tomorrow?

Misato:         Oh, you mean the wedding party?
                I wore that pink suit at Kiyomi's party.
                I just wore that navy blue dress at Kotoko's.

Ritsuko:        How about that orange one?
                You haven't used that recently.

Misato:         Oh, that one. There's a slight reason why...

Ritsuko:        Too tight?

Misato:         Right.
                Should I buy new one on the way home?
                It will cost a lot.

Ritsuko:        We've been invited around so frequently; the amount of
                gratuity is getting huge.

# The guest has to give a gratuity to the host couple in Japan.
# The amount is about 20,000 YEN (200 US$) or more.

Misato:         Shit! Every one is eager to marry before they reach
                thirty .

Ritsuko:        We don't want to be the last ones still single.

Ritsuko:        OK! Your work is finished.

Ritsuko:        You're done.

Asuka:          Always tests, tests. It's so boring!

Ritsuko:        By the way, Shinji-kun seems very depressed today.

Misato:         'cose of tomorrow.

Ritsuko:        Hmm... tomorrow.


Shinji:         I am going to see my father tomorrow.
                What do you think I should talk about with him?

Rei:            Why do you ask me about something like that?

Shinji:         'cose you seemed to enjoy talking with my father the other day.

Shinji:         So, what kind of man is my father?

Rei:            I have no idea.

Shinji:         Is that so.

Rei:            Is it because you've wanted to ask that, that you've
                been staring at me since morning?

Shinji:         Yeah.

Shinji:         Oh, when we were cleaning the room today, when you were wringing
                the floorcloth.
                You looked like a mother then.

Rei:            A mother?

Shinji:         Yeah.
                Yeah, that was just like a mother's way of wringing.
                I bet you'll become a housewife.

Rei:            What do you say!


TV:             Oh, no! It's you who said "we should seperate."

Misato:         I'm back.

TV:             .... maybe .....

Asuka:          Hi.

TV:             What are you saying, in a situation like this?
                I don't know about you, but I'm different from what I was
                in those days.

Misato:         Go to bed right now, because you have a date tomorrow.

TV:             Yet, I still love...

Asuka:          Yeah, with an MD student.
                Oh, I've got it. Hey, can I use that? Your lavender perfume.

Misato:         NO!

TV:             Once .... a woman cannot return to what she was.
                I cannot return to what I was in those days.

Misato:         Shit. You're stingy!

TV:             But I still love you.

Misato:         It's not for a child like you.
                Is Shinji-kun in his room?

TV:             I told you, it's impossible.

Asuka:          He's shut himself in for a while now.
                It seems he doesn't wanna see his father.
                If he hates him, he should say he doesn't want to go.
                Japanese people are so...

TV:             I'd been trying to forget you for three years.

Misato:         It is not that he really hates him.

TV:             Don't say such a thing now.

Misato:          That's a problem, alright.
Ikari:          Go home!

Ikari:          Well done, Shinji.

Misato:         Shinji-kun, I'm coming in.

Misato:         Are you afraid of that? Being alone with your father?
                It's no good to run away all the time.
                You must step forward.
                Otherwise nothing will change.

Shinji:         I know.

Misato:         You are going to find out,
                Not only the first step, but you also have to continue
                to walk after the first one.
                Anyhow, you must go there with your chin up tomorrow,
                since you'll be seeing your mother.

Misato:         Then, g'night.

Asuka:          Hey, you bought a dress for tomorrow? Let me see!

Misato:         (laugh), you wanna see? It's a very expensive one.

Asuka:          That's your opinion, not the price.

Misato:         Here it is. This is perfect!

Asuka:          Yeah! Did you take Kaji-san's tastes into account?

Misato:         I must not. That was over long ago.

Misato:         Then,

Asuka:          I'm

Shinji:         Off.


Speech:         From now on, you must keep three bags in your mind, and ...

Song:           Red, Blue, and Yellow dr...

# Famous oldies in Japan.
# "Red, Blue, and Yellow dress. With the dress, the ladybirds are
# about to dance! Synchonizing to the Samba's rithm, they dance!"

Toastmaster:    Now, it's the time for some good conversation.


        Mr. Kaji Ryouji

Ritsuko:        He hasn't come yet. Ryou-chan.

Misato:         That idiot never comes on time.

Ritsuko:        That was when he dated.
                His attitude was different on the job.

Ryouji:         Hi! You two are more beautiful than ever today.
                I didn't get out of work on time.

Misato:         You're always idling.

Ryouji:         (Laugh)

Misato:         Anyhow, why don't you shave that sloppy beard?
                And that tie is a mess.

Ryouji:         Sorry.

Ritsuko:        You two look like you're married.

Misato:         Ah!

Ryouji:         Good point! Ritchan.

Misato:         Who would marry this kind of guy?!

Ikari:          It's been three years since the last time I was here
                with you alone.

Shinji:         Since that time I ran away, I've never come here.
                I don't feel like my mother sleeps here.
                I don't remember my mother's face.

Ikari:          People continue to live by forgetting things.
                Nevertheless, we have something that we must not forget.
                Yui let me know that indispensable thing.
                To confirm that, I come here.

Shinji:         Don't you have a photo of her or something?

Ikari:          Nothing is left.
                This grave is nothing but a decoration.
                There were no remains.

Shinji:         As my teacher says, you cast everything away.

Ikari:          Everything is in my mind.
                I am satisfied with that, now .

Ikari:          It's time. I'm leaving.

Shinji:         Father!
                I mean, I am glad, that I had a chance to talk with you today.

Ikari:          Is that so?



Those women longed for the touch of other's lips, and thus invited
their kisses.
Shinji:         huh?

Asuka:          Not bad!

Asuka:          You know something like that?

Shinji:         I've been learning since I was five.  This skill...
                I'm not particulartly talented.

Asuka:          Sticking with it is power.
                I'll think a little better of you.

Shinji:         I began this following my teacher's advise.
                I could have quited immediately.

Asuka:          So, why have you continued?

Shinji:         No one told me to stop.

Asuka:          That figures.

Shinji:         You came back early. I thought you would have supper.

Asuka:          It wasn't any fun to be with that boy.
                So, I escaped while we were in line
                for the roller coaster.

Shinji:         That's so cold.

Asuka:          Oh! Only Kaji-san is a real man.

Misato:         It's too late to say such a thing.
                I''m going to fix my hair.

Ryouji:         But don't run away.

Misato:         Beeee.

Ryouji:         Pumps...

Ryouji:         It's been a long time since we three had a drink.

Ritsuko:        She drank too much.
                She's playing around.

Ryouji:         To keep oneself from playing, one drinks more.
                Well, today, it's not me but her.

Ritsuko         But the words of the man who lived with her are important.

Ryouji:         We lived together, though it was before Katsuragi wore

Ritsuko:        We never imagined that during our school days.

Ryouji:         I was just a kid, so it wasn't the life of a man and a woman,
                just room-sharing. Yeah, it was children playing.

Ryoji:          Oh, here you are. A souvenir from a cat.

Ritsuko:        Oh, thanks.
                What an honest man you are.

Ryouji:         To the ladies.
                But a slacker in business.

Ritsuko:        I doubt that.
                And with Misato?

Ryouji:         I lost once. It's not my policy to fight
                a war that I'm sure to lose.

Ritsuko:        I think you have a chance to win.

Ryouji:         To win you, Ritchan?

Ritsuko:        It's not my policy to talk about myself.
                There's nothing amusing there.

Ryouji:         She's not yet back. Katsuragi might be fixing her makeup?

Ritsuko:        What were you doing in Kyoto?

Ryouji:         That souvenir is from Matsushiro.

Ritsuko:        It's no use pretending.
                Too much investigation, and you'll get burned.
                This is advise from a friend.

Ryouji:         I'll take you seriously.
                But, if I get burned, I wish it would be by the fire of love wit
h you...

Misato:         Shall I buy some fireworks for you?

Ryouji:         Oh, you're back.

Misato:         Your attitude never changes.

Ryouji:         Oh, yes, I am changing. To live is to change.

Ritsuko:        Homeostasis and transistasis.

Misato:         What are those?

Ritsuko:        The power to conserve the present status, and the power
                to change.
                The thing which has those two contradictory properties is life.

Ryouji:         That is, men and women.

Ritsuko:        I'm leaving now.
                I still have work to do.

Misato:         You're really leaving?

Ritsuko:        Yeah.

Ryouji:         I am very sorry.

Ritsuko:        See you later.

Misato:         later.

Phone(Misato):  Is that you Shinchan? It's me.
                I'm drinking with Kaji-kun.
                Yeah, it's our third party.

# If you drink later with somebody who was at a party,
# the drinking is called the "Second party."
# And if you drink after the second party,
# it's the Third party.

Shinji:         hm, hm, alright. bye.

Asuka:          Misato?

Shinji:         Yeah. She said she'll be back very late.
                She said "go to bed before I get back"

Asuka:          Oh! Is she coming back tomorrow morning?

Shinji:         I don't think so, because she's with Kaji-san.

Asuka:          You idiot!  Because of that.

Misato:         wwww.

Ryouji:         You're old enough. You shouldn't throw up.

Misato:         Sorry that I'm old enough.

Ryouji:         I'm old enough as well.

Misato:         That's right.

Ryouji:         You are wearing pumps. I feel that it's been a long time.

Misato:         You'd better shave that sloppy beard.

Ryouji:         alright

Misato:         OK, I'll walk from here. Thanks.

Ryouji:         hm.

Misato:         Kaji-kun, have I changed?

Ryouji:         You've gotten prettier.

Misato:         I am sorry that I insisted on separating back then.
                I told you that I had another love,
                but that was a lie.
                Did you find out?

Ryouji:         No.

Misato:         I found, I found that you had something that resembled my
                I was looking for someone like my father. When I discovered
                that, I was afraid. I was afraid of  everything.
                I was afraid of being with you.
                I was afraid of being a woman. I was afraid of everything.
                Although I had hated my father,
                I happened to love a man who looked like my father.

Misato:         To forget everything, I joined NERV, which, however, was the
                institute where my father had been.
                I've been pretending to take revenge on the Angels.

Ryouji:         It's you who chose that path.
                You don't have to apologize to me.

Misato:         No! I didn't choose that path. I just tried to run away.
                I just tried to escape from my father's spell.
                Just like Shinji-kun.
                I'm a coward.
                I am sorry.
                Tonight, I'm talking like this because I'm drunk.

Ryouji:         That's enough.

Ryouji:         I am a child. I have no right to say anything to Shinji-kun.

Ryouji:         That's enough.

Misato:         And then, I try to depend on a man only in situations
                like this. I am a horrible woman.
                Back then, I might have used you.
                I hate myself!

Ryouji:         That's enough! Stop it!

Misato:         I don't know what I can do!

Asuka:          Hey, Shinji, let's kiss.

Shinji:         E? what?

Asuka:          I said kiss. Kiss. You've never kissed, right?

Shinji:         No.

Asuka:          Then, let's kiss.

Shinji:         Hm.. How come?

Asuka:          Because I don't have anything to do.

Shinji:         Nothing to do, so, kiss? That's ...

Asuka:          You don't want to kiss a girl on the anniversary of
                your mother's death?
                Are you afraid that your mother might be watching us
                from heaven?

Shinji:         Not really.

Asuka:          Or, are you afraid?

Shinji:         I am not. I'll kiss you.

Asuka:          Have you brushed your teeth?

Shinji:         yeah.

Asuka:          Then, here we go.

Asuka:          The breath from your nose is tickling me. Don't breathe.

Shinji:         Guwaa.

PenPen:         kwawaa wa wa hya.

Shinji:         gwaaa

Asuka:          (gargling)
                Phew! I can't believe I did that just to kill time.

Ryouji:         Hey, here we are. Pull yourself together.

Shinji:         Kaji-san!

Asuka:          Oh! Kaji-san?

Misato:         Phew, that's hard.

Ryouji:         OK, I'll leave now.

Asuka:          How about staying here tonight?

Ryouji:         People will laugh at me if I go office in this suit.

Asuka:          That doesn't matter. It's OK!
                Hey! Kaji-san!

Asuka:          He smells of lavender.

Ryouji:         Sorry. Please take care of Katsuragi.

Shinji:         Alright.

Ryouji:         OK, g'night.

Shinji:         Good night.

Shinji:         What's the matter? You seem depressed.

Asuka:          Because I kissed a guy like you!


Teacher:        Next is a girl student. Ayanami.
                Is Ayanami absent today?


                Nerv Headquarters
                Central area


                Deep Underground Installation


                Central Dogma.


                2008 meters underground


                Terminal Dogma

Ryouji:         Hi!  How is your hangover?

Misato:         Thanks to this, I'm completely clear.

Ryouji:         That's nice.

Misato:         Is this your real job?
                Or just a part-time job?

Ryouji:         I wonder...

Misato:         The person belonging to the Special Investigations Section,
                of Special Institute Nerv:  Kaji Ryouji.
                At the same time, the person belonging to
                the inquiry section of Japan's Ministry of the Interior,
                Kaji Ryouji.

Ryouji:         Oh, you've found out about that.

Misato:         Don't underestimate Nerv!

Ryouji:         Was this ordered by Commander Ikari?

Misato:         On my own accord. If you pursue this part-time job further,
                you shall die.

Ryouji:         Commander Ikari makes use of me, so I can go further.
                Anyhow, I'm sorry that I've kept this a secret from you.

Misato:         Since I appreciate what you did yesterday,
                I'll let it pass.

Ryouji:         Thanks.
                However, the Commander and Ritchan have also
                kept something secret from you.

Misato:         This is...
                Is this...

Ryouji:         Yes. The key to Second Impact and everything since,
                the starting point of everything. This is Adam.

Misato:         Adam?
                The first Angel is here?
                It looks like I've been underestimating Nerv.

Being overconfident, Shinji is trapped in the Sea of Dirac.
The short time left finds him in despair.
Next Episode, "Disease to die, and..."
Next time, look forward to service!

Episode 16 "disease to die, and..." -- Splitting of the Breast --

---A PART---
Asuka:  (humming)
Misato : mmm... Oh, Shin-chan, you changed the soup stock?

Shinji : Yes, it's dried bonito stock. It's a souvenir from Ritsuko-san.

Asuka : Eek!

Asuka : Too hot!!

Shinji : I'm sorry.

Asuka : Grr... You're always begging. Do you really think you're wrong?

Shinji : Hmm...

Asuka : Shinji, it seems you apologize as a conditioned reflex to avoid
        being scolded.

Shinji : Ah, sorry...

Asuka : Just like that. Basically, you're too self-punishing.

Misato : Oh, oh. That's just Shin-chan's lifestyle.

Asuka:  It's easy for you to accept his lifestyle.
        Lately, you've been too soft on Shinji, haven't you?

Misato : Me?

Asuka : You may have rediscovered your friendship with Kaji-san, but you
        shouldn't simply pass on your happiness.

Misato : I have nothing to do with Kaji.

Ryouji (voice from the telephone) :
        "Hey, Katsuragi. I found a pub that serves good drinks.
        How 'bout tonight? Bye!"

Misto : Ow...

Asuka : I know I've never been with anyone in such a dirty relationship.
        Hell, you pretend to be a guardian?
        Hypocrite! I hate that!!

disease to die  epi
and             sode

Operator(female) : B-type harmonics test, all green.

Operetor(male) : All course adjusting values cleared.

Makoto : Misato-san, you seem exhausted.

Misato : Due to various reasons--private ones.

Ritsuko : Kaji-kun?

Misato : Shut up.
        Well, how's the Third Children?

Maya : Look at this.

Misato : Well.
        Wow, (looking at the monitor) I hope knowing this boosts
        his confidence.

(In the Entry Plug)

Misato :Can you hear me, Shinji-kun?

Shinji :hmm.. Ah, Misato-san! What are the test results?


Shinji : huh!

Asuka : I lost!
        He exceeded me easily!
        To be honest, he did it so easily that I feel just a bit annoyed.
        Great, wonderful, strong, too strong!
        Huh! Undefeatable Shinji-sama!
        Now our job will be easier, right?
        But, we'll have to do our best not to be just left behind.

Rei : Good bye.

Asuka : (punching the door of her locker) Huh! mmmm...

(In a bus)

Bus announce :Next stop is Seishou Kabuse, Seishou Kabuse.
        Convenient for the Bashar, used books & game stores.

Shinji : Yes!

Kids :(chuckle)

Shinji :hmm.

Kids : (chuckle)

Shinji : um,huh.

Operator(female) : Evacuation of West quarter, 5 minutes left.

Operator(male) : Target advancing slowly at 2.5 km per hour.

Ritsuko : You're late!

Misato : Sorry!
        What's going on? The observation centre on Mt.Fuji...

Shigeru : ...did not detect it. It suddenly appeared directly above us.

Makoto :Pattern orange. A.T. Field not detected.

Misato : What does it mean?

Ritsuko : Is it a new kind of Angel?

Maya : MAGI won't commit to a decision.

Misato :Ah, and at a time like this Commander Ikari is absent!

(three Evangelions are standing by)

Misato :Can you hear me?
        I've sent you all data on the target..
        At present, we have nothing further.
        Approach carefully, observe its reaction,
        and, if possible, lead it outside the urban area.

Asuka : All right, sensei.
        I think Shinji-kun should be the vanguard.

Shinji :Ah, huh?

Asuka : Well, in any case,
        this is a job for a man of good record, daring and the number
         one synchro-rate.
         Or have you no confidence, Shin-chan?

Shinji :No, I'm ready!

Asuka : mmm...

Shinji :Here's a good example to follow, Asuka.

Asuka :Wh-- What was that?!

Misato :Hey, guys...

Shinji :You told me, Misato-san, "YOU ARE NUMBER ONE".

Misato :No, that was--

Shinji :(interrupting Misato) To fight a man's job.

Asuka :Anachronistic!
       Unit two, backup.

Rei :Unit Zero backup, as well.

Misato :My kids are doing this without my permission.

Ritsuko : Shinji-kun has developed much, hasn't he?

Misto :No. I've gotta scold him when he gets back.

Ritsuko :You just might be a good teacher.
Shinji :Ayanami, Asuka. How are your configurations?

Rei :Not yet ready.

Asuka :You know Eva can't move that fast.

(Eva-02's umbilical cable is caught at the building.
 Asuka purges the cable and inserts another one in the back of Eva-02)

Asuka : Shit!

Asuka : Oof!

Shinji : You haven't arrived?
        (I'll try to stop it from leaving.)

Ritsuko : It vanished!

Misato :What?

Makoto :Pattern blue. Angel detected directly beneath Unit One.

Shinji :What? Sh-- shadow! Ah,huah!
        What's this!

Misato :Shinji-kun, run! Shinji-kun!

Rei : Ikari-kun.

Asuka :You fool, what are you doing!

Shinji :hoah, whoa!
        Misato-san, what's going on? Misato-san!
        Asuka, Ayanami, cover me!
        Misato-san, can you hear me, Misato-san!

Misato : hm. Eject plug! Send the signal!

Maya :No use. There's no response.
Shinji :Misato-san, Misato-san!

Misato :Shinji-kun!

Misato :Asuka, Rei. Rescue Unit One. Hurry!

Asuka :(Fool! It's no use getting a perfect score only on the examination!)
Maya :It vanished again.

Ritsuko :Asuka, be careful!

Asuka :Shadow!?

Asuka :No!

(buildings sink into the black "shadow".)

Asuka :The city is...

Misato :Asuka, Rei. Withdraw!

Asuka :hm, wa...

Rei : Wait!

Asuka :huh?

Rei : Unit One and Ikari-kun are still inside.

Misato :It's an order. Withdraw.

Maya : Major Katsuragi must be in pain.

Ritsuko : I heard the Umbilical Cable was reeled in but
          its head was lost.

Maya : That means...

Ritsuko : Little energy remains in the internal battery.
          If Shinji-kun doesn't blindly move Eva and
          if he can endure in life-support mode,
          he can survive for 16 hours.
Operator (male A) : Second tank squadron, arrangement completed.

Operator (female) : Roger. Hold cuurent position and stand by.

Operator (male B) : Sub laser, line opened. Data transmitted.

Operator (male C) : Roger. Dispatched in C line.

Shigeru : The UN Force's seige formation is complete.

Misato : Shadow's status?

Makoto : Immobile. It ceased motion when it exceeded 600 meters in
        diameter. But are the land troops useful?

Misato : They're intended to let us apply pressure.

Asuka : Oh, well,
        Acting arbitrarily without consultation, defying operations--
        the consequences are his own fault.
        He got good results on yesterday's test, and he told me
        "Here's a good example to follow!"
        Ha! The boy is brainless!

Asuka : Wh-- what?
        Does insulting Shinji make you that angry?

Rei : Do you pilot Eva to be praised by somebody?

Asuka : No. I need no one's praise but my own!

Misato : Stop it, you two.
        Yes, he acted arbitrarily without consultation,
        so... I'll have to scold him when he gets back.

---A PART:END---
Splitting of the Breast
---B PART---

Shinji : I never thought sleeping could exhaust me.
         (Shinji activates monitor.)
         Still only white noise.

         Radar and sonar have gotten no response.

         This space must be too vast.
         It's been 12 hours since I switched to the life-support-mode. Huh...
         My life will end in 4 or 5 hours...
         ...feel hungry...

Misato : You mean that shadow portion is the Angel's body?

Ritsuko : Yes, it is about 680 meters in diameter, and about 3 nanometers in
         thickness. It sustains that super-thin space with an
         inverted A.T. Field, with the interior of the Field an
         imaginary space known as  "The Sea of Dirac."
         It may connect to another space.

Misato : So what's that sphere?

Ritsuko : It vanishes when the imaginary circuit of the body is closed.
        The object in the sky is nothing but a shadow.

Misato :  So the black shadow that swallowed Unit One is the target?

Asuka : Then we have no way to fight against it.

Shinji : Mm...
        The water is getting muddy! Hhug...
        Purification capacity is decreasing...

        Hah. Mm,mm... it smells.
        Blood, it smells of blood.
        Ha... No! I hate this place!
        Why can't I open this lock!
        Open! Let me out!
        Misato-san, what's going on! Misato-san!
        Asuka! Ayanami!! Eee! Ritusko-san! hhug...
        hhug, cough, m, g, mm,
        Please, help me...

Misato : Forced salvaging of Eva ?

Ritsuko : It's the only way that might be possible.

        Dropping 992 existing N2 depth charges in the central portion,
        timed to within 1 millisecond of using the two existing Eva's
        A.T. Fields to interfere with the imaginary circuit of the Angel.

        In that moment, we concentrate enough explosive energy
        to break the Angel along with the Dirac's Sea
        that forms its body.

Misato : But, you know Eva's body can't...
         Shinji-kun wouldn't...
         Hell, this is no rescue operation.

Ritsuko : In this operation, salvage of the body of Unit One
        has the number one priority over all else.
        We do not care if the body is destroyed.

Misato : Wait a second!

Ritsuko : In this case, the pilot's life is of no concern.

Misato : Mgg.

Ritsuko : Aw!

Ritusko : If Shinji-kun is lost, it's your fault. Just remember that.

Misato : What's the reason you and Commander Ikari are so worried about
         Unit One?
         What is Eva?

Ritsuko : The material I gave you tells you everything regarding Eva.

Misato : Bullshit.

Ritsuko : Trust me, Misato.
        I am commanding everything in this operation.

Ritsuko : We will forward all flights to the Kankuu airport.
        Contact the Air Control and Air Transport Divisions
        of the JDAF.

 Misato : (thinking) Second Impact, Project Instrumentality, Adam.
        There are many secrets I'm in the dark about...
 (In the Entry Plug)

Shinji : Who?

Shinji ' : IKARI Shinji.

Shinji : That's me.

Shinji ' : I am you.
          One has another self within oneself.
          The "self" always consisted of two selves.

Shinji : Two?

Shinji ' : The self who is actually watched by others and
         the self which watches itself.
         IKARI Shinji in your mind.
         IKARI Shinji in KATSURAGI Misato's mind.
         IKARI Shinji in Soryuu Asuka's mind.
         IKARI Shinji in AYANAMI Rei's mind.
         IKARI Shinji in IKARI Gendou's mind.
        Each IKARI Shinji is different from the others,
        but each of them is a true IKARI Shinji.
        You're afraid of the IKARI Shinji in others' minds.

Shinji : I'm afraid of being hated.

Shinji ' : You hate being hurt.
        Who is bad?
        Father is bad.
        The Father who deserted me.

Shinji : I am bad.


Asuka : This is the way you always think of yourself as bad!
        It's being "self-punishing."


Shinji : Hell, I can do nothin'.

Misato :So you think that you can do nothing?


Rei : Don't you trust your father ?


Shinji : (thought) I think I hate my father, but I'm not sure...


Gendou : Well done, Shinji.

Shinji : Father called me by my name.
        I was praised by my father.

Shinji ' : You'll live by simply recalling [lit: chewing the cud of]
           those pleasures?

Shinji : If I trust their words, I can just keep living from now on...

Shinji ' : ...by deceiving yourself ?

Shinji : Everyone does it. Huh,
        People live by doing so.

Shinji ' : If you continue to think you can't change yourself,
         you cannot live on.

Shinji : There is too much pain in this world for me to live.

Shinji ' : For example, you cannot swim ?

Shinji : Humans aren't made to be float.

Shinji ' : That's self-deception.

Shinji : I don't care whatever you call it.

Shinji ' : You have been closing your eyes and turning deaf ears
        to anything you did not want to know.

(flashback from the episode 3)

Kensuke : Sorry, but his younger sister was...
(flashback from the episode 4)

Misato : It's is not your business to care about others!
(flashback from the episode 1 )

Gendou : Get out!
Shinji : No, I don't want to hear this!

Shinji' : Hey, you're running away again.
        No one can live by just linking together the things one enjoys like
        a rosary.
        In particular, I cannot.

Shinji : I've found one thing that I enjoy.
        Am I wrong to do this one likeable thing?!
Makoto : Theoretically, the energy reserves of the Entry Plug
         are nearly at the end.

Maya : Life support system of the Plug Suit will be in the red zone.

Ritsuko : We will bring the schedule 12 minutes forward,
        while Shinji-kun is still likely to be alive.

Shinji : Father,
        am I a useless child ?

Shinji ' : It's from your own side that you ran away.

Voice (male A) : Yes, this man is suspected of killing his own wife.

Voice (male B) : He killed his own wife.

Shinji : No!
        Mother... smiled at ...


Misato : You've done something praiseworthy.

Gendou : Shinji, you shouldn't run.

Misato : Do your best...

Shinji : No, I hate this place,
        and this loneliness. No...
        The Oxygen circulation has stopped.
        Fu, Fu, F...
        It's cold...
        No use, the suit has reached its limit.
        Now the end...
        of everything...

Shinji : Mother?

(flashback ?)

Yui : Is it enough?
     Well, that's good for you.
Shigeru : Both Evas standing by at operating position.

Maya : Ready to generate A.T. Field.

Ritsuko : Roger.

Makoto : 60 seconds to bombing.

(with the rumbling of the ground, "shadow" on the earth cracks.)

Asuka : What's going on?

Misato : Status?

Makoto : No information.

Maya : All meters at full swing.

Ritsuko : But we have done nothing.

Misato : Impossible! Shinji-kun is...

Ritsuko : Unbelievable. The Unit One's energy has reached the zero point.

( the "sphere" in the sky suddenly splits and the bloody fingers
 appears from the interior ...)

Misato and other people : Ah!

Unit One : (Splitting the "sphere"...) GWOOOOOOOO.....

Asuka : Am-- am I riding a thing like that...?

Ritsuko : What... what a creature we copied from...

Misato : (thought) I understand that EVA isn't just a copy of
        the First Angel, but how is NERV going to use the EVAs
        after it defeats every Angel?

Unit One : Ggwoooooooo.....

(After that, Misato opens the Entry Plug)

Misato : Shinji-kun, Shinji-kun, Shinji-kun!

        Shinji-kun, are you okay? Shinji-kun!!

Shinji : ...I just wanted to see... again...

Misato : (weeps)

Asuka : Didn't you say you'd scold him ?

Misato : (weeps)

(in the cage, workers washing EVA )

Ritsuko : I have never felt that Eva has been more horrible than today.
        Is EVA truly on our side ?
        It may hate us.
        Major KATSURAGI may be aware of something.

Gendou : I see. For now, that's fine.

Ritsuko : If Rei and Shinji-kun know the secrets of EVA,
        they will never forgive us...

(In a sickroom , Shinji wakes up. Rei is by his side.)

Shinji : Ho-hum.

Rei : You may just rest for today. We'll do everything for you.

Shinji : Hm. But I'm all right now.

Rei : Well, that's good for you.

Shinji : Huh...

(Rei leaves the room. Asuka is hiding behind the door.)

Asuka : ah, oh! Mmm ...

Shinji : (chuckles)

Shinji : (sniff)

Shinji : ...still smells... of blood...

---B PART:END---


EVA Unit Four, having been constructed in the USA,
vanishes together with the second branch of Nerv.
This incident causes the selection of a new EVA pilot.
