                Translated Speech Script.

                Edited by Matthew Opel

Kihl:   You rejected the interrogation of the only person directly involved
        in this incident, the pilot of unit one.
        Major Katsuragi.

Misato: Yes.
        He is emotionally very unstable.
        I do not think it's a good idea to have him stand here right now.

A:      Then, I ask you, as his deputy, Major Katsuragi.

B:      In this incident, didn't the Angels try to contact a human

Misato: The report from the person involved does not suggest that.
        Presumably, it was an irregular incident.

C:      If he remembers correctly.

Misato: No external tampering to his memory was detected.

C:      Eva's AC recorder was not operating.
        There is no way to confirm that.

A:      Was the Angel interested in the human spirit and mind?

Misato: I am not able to answer that question.
        Do Angels have a concept of mind?
        Do they understand human thoughts?
        This is absolutely unknown.

D:      This incident reveals a new aspect:  the Angel tried to possess
        What of the possibility of this aspect linking to the predicted
        13th Angel?

Misato: Considering the pattern so far,
        there is no systematic organization among the Angels.

B:      That's right.
        It is obvious that their actions have been independent, so far.

Misato: What does that mean?

Kihl:   You are not permitted to question.

Misato: Understood.

Kihl:   That is all. Leave.

Misato: Yes.

- -
Kihl:   What do you think, Ikari-kun?

Gendou: The Angels are getting more and more intelligent.
        The time left is...

Kihl:   Very short, you mean to say?

        Episode 17
        The fourth
        Qualified Person

- --
NurseA: The patient in the twelfth room?

NurseB: You mean that first aid case from Incident E?
        She's been hospitalized here for a long time.

NurseC: Her injuries present a very difficult case.

NurseB: She's still a primary student.

NurseA: Has that boy come today?

NurseC: Yeah.
        He never misses visiting twice a week.
        He's a very good brother, thinking so much about his sister.

NurseB: Right!
        Nowadays, that kind of boy is rare.

- --
Gendou: Rei, are you are alright today?

Rei:    Yes.
        Tomorrow, I will be at Dr. Akagi's.
        The day after tomorrow, school.

Gendou: How is school?

Rei:    No problems.

Gendou: I see. Very well.
- --
Hikari: Stand up. Bow. sit down.

Teacher: Oh, Ayanami and Aida are absent, as usual?

Shinji: Kensuke, how come?

Teacher:And, today, Teacher Koike is absent.
        Therefore, Modern Japanese class is self-study.
        The person on duty today is,

Touji:  New Yokosuka.
        He's following battleships today, as usual.
        I hear that the "Myoukou" or something is in port.


Touji:  Ah, Ye, Yes!

Teacher:Take the class bulletin to Ayanami's later.

Touji:  Yes.
- --
Makoto: So, the status of the first branch is OK?
        No need! the data from the reconnaissance plane will be
        confirmed by Magi.

Shigeru: ...

- --
Kouzou: Vanished?
        Did the second branch really vanish?

Shigeru:Yes. Everything has been confirmed.
        It vanished.
- --
Misato: Now I'm finished!

Makoto: The Administrative Department and the Inspection Department
        upstairs are in an uproar.
        The General Affairs Department is in a panic.

Misato: And, the cause is?

Ritsuko: Still under investigation.
        The only clue is this image from a stationary satellite.
        Nothing else remains.

Maya:   Ten minits, Eighto, Seben, Shix, Fibe, Sree, Tsoo, Wan, Contacto.
# This must be "Ten seconds" but Maya clearly says "Ten Minits"
- -
Misato: Terrible!

Maya:   Evangelion Unit Four, together with
        all the installations involved within a radius of 89km
        from the center were annihilated.

Ritsuko: Including thousands of people.

Shigeru: From the time-schedule, the accident seems to have
        occurred during the experimental installation of the
        S2 engine.

Maya:   The possible causes range from insufficient quality of material
        to a mistake in the initial stages of design.
        The total number of combinations is 32,768.

Misato: There's a chance of sabotage.

Makoto: But, it wasn't an explosion, but a disappearance.

Ritsuko: Probably, it was swallowed by the Sea of Dirac, just like Unit One

Misato: Then, the S2 engine has also...

Ritsuko: Vanished.
        And our dreams have vanished, too.

Misato: It's because they force us to use something we don't really understand.

Ritsuko: Eva is also something like that.

- --
Misato: Then, how is Unit three coming?

Ritsuko:We are about to receive it.
        The U.S. administration does not seem to have lost the first branch.

Misato: With Unit three and four, they insisted the rights
        of construction, and demanded to build them.
        But, now, they force us to accept this.
        They're pushing their luck.

Ritsuko: After that tragedy, anyone would lose courage.

Misato: Then, how will we do the booting test?
        Using Rei's dummy?

Ritsuko: I will decide.
- --
Ritsuko:This is the prototype dummy plug.
        Rei's personality was transfered,
        although the human mind and spirit are not digitalizable.
        This is nothing but a fake, a copy
        which imitates the pilot's thinking. It's nothing but a machine.

Gendou: It transmits a signal pattern to Eva.
        Eva considers a pilot to be in it and synchronizes with this.
        That's what we need.
        Install the data to Unit One, and Two.

Ritsuko: It still has some problems.

Gendou: I don't care.
        If Eva moves, that will be fine.

Ritsuko: Understood.

- --
Gendou: The transportation of the Unit is being left entirely to the UN.
        It will arrive this weekend.
        Then you will take care of things.

        The adjustment and the booting test will be done at Matsushiro.

Gendou: The test pilot is?

Ritsuko: The Dummy plug is still too dangerous.
        One of the present candidates will be...

Gendou: appointed as the Fourth.

        There's one child whose core will be ready immediately.

Gendou: I'll leave all of it to you.


Gendou: Rei, we're finished.

Rei:    Yes.

Gendou: Let's eat.

Rei:    Yes.

- --
Hikari: Stand up. Bow.

Students: Phew!

Touji:  WOW, it's time for lunch.
        It's the greatest pleasure of school life.

Asuka:  Oh, You didn't bring our lunch boxes?

Shinji: La, Last night, I was busy with homework, so I didn't have time to cook.

Asuka:  So, because of that, I have to go without lunch?!

Touji:  Oh, a husband-wife quarrel?

Students: (Laugh)

Shinji&Asuka:   NO WAY!

- --
Misato: What? You look so serious.

Ritsuko: In the booting test of Unit three at Matsushiro,
        we will use the Fourth as the pilot.

Misato: The Fourth?
        The fourth children was found?

Ritsuko: Yesterday.

Misato: I haven't received a report from the Marduk Institute yet.

Ritsuko:The official documents will arrive tomorrow.

Misato: Dr. Akagi, are you keeping secrets from me, again?

Ritsuko:No, nothing.

Misato: Well, OK.
        And, who is the selected child?

Misato: Wow, it's THIS child?

Ritsuko:We had no choice.
        The candidates have been gathered in one place,
        and are being protected.

Misato: It's hard to tell.
        Asuka will be fine. She's proud of piloting Eva.
        Rei is exceptional.
        She has not problems with Eva and our work.
        Shinji knows the most about these things.
        I don't want him to be pained any more.

Ritsuko: However, we need children of that kind,
        in order for all of us to survive.

Misato: You're saying to me, "don't avoid complications!"

- --
Students: See ya!

Hikari: Suzuhara, you are on duty for today. Do your job.

Touji:  What are you talking about?

Hikari: The class bulletin! "Take these." said the teacher.

Touji:  What's that? Class Rep, There must be someone else on duty.

Hikari: Ayanami-san is absent today.

Touji:  Ayanami and me?
        Well, there's no choice.
        But, I can't go to a woman's place alone.

Hikari: Then I'll go with...

Touji:  Shinji, walk home with me, OK?!

Hikari: Ah,

Hikari: (sigh)

- --
Shinji: Ayanami, I'm coming in.

Touji:  You can't enter a woman's apartment without permission.

Shinji: There's no other choice.
        She won't read them if we put them in here.
- -
Shinji: Excuse us.

Touji:  Oh, is this a woman's room?
        Not very charming.

Touji:  Oh, no, don't touch that, or she'll get angry.

Shinji:  I'm only cleaning up.

Touji:  I won't help you.
        It's not a man's job.

Shinji: OK, but Misato-san dislikes guys like that.

Touji: mmmm, I don't care!
        It's my policy.
- -
Touji:  Changed a lot.

Shinji: What?

Touji:  You, Shinji.

Shinji: hmm?

Touji:  When I first saw you, I really thought you were a jerk.
        You didn't seem like a guy who'd do something for the sake of
        other people.
        I guess it's that of you're reserved.

Shinji: Ah?

Touji:  Please excuse us.

Rei:    What?

Touji:  Those are the class bulletins that have piled up.

Shinji: Sorry, I cleaned up on my own accord.
        I didn't touch anything except garbage.

Rei:    Th..Thank you.

- --
Touji:  Well, Eva pilots are all strange, alright.

- --
Rei:    "Thank you," the words for gratitude. Those words for the first time.
        I've never even said them to that person.

- ---A PART:END---

- ---B PART---
Kouzou: The city is a paradise that humans made.

Gendou: Driven out from paradise,
        Human beings fled to the earthly world, near death.
        Created by those weakest of living things, created by the sapience
        acquired because of that weakness, was a paradise of our own.

Kouzou: To protect us from the fear of death,
        to satisfy ourselves with pleasure,
        we created a paradise ourselves...
        This city is indeed a paradise.
        This city, equipped with weapons to protect us.

Gendou: A city for those cowards fleeing from
        the outside world, full of enemies.

Kouzou: Cowards live longer. That's one good thing.
        Third New Tokyo City, NERV's camouflaged intercept
        fortress city.
        The Long-delayed seventh construction will be over soon.
        At last it will be complete.

Kouzou: How are you going to report to the committee on the accident
        with Unit four?

Gendou: With the facts:  the cause is unknown.

Kouzou: Anyhow, it was a terrible loss, this time.

Gendou: I don't care about Unit four and the second branch.
        We lost the prototype S2 engine, but we still have the data in
        Germany. Unit one and this installation are enough.

Kouzou: But the committee is in a panic.

Gendou: Of course,  because it's an unscheduled accident.

Kouzou: Seele must be busy revising the schedule.

Gendou: Incidents missed by The Dead Sea Scrolls may occur.
        That will teach the old men a lesson.

- --
Announce: The transformation of the Third Area and the prototype weapon
        test will be done as scheduled.
        Dr. Nishizawa of Third Engineering Section, Dr. Nishizawa,
        Connect the Second Development Section immediately.

Ryouji: Although our intercept system will finally be complete,
        no celebration party is scheduled.
        NERV is such a strict organization.

Maya:   Because Commander Ikari is like he is.

Ryouji: How about you?

Maya:  Is this OK, Kaji-san?
        I'll tell Katsuragi-san and Senior Akagi about this.

Ryouji: Before you talk, I'll cover your mouth.

Misato: How is your work coming?

Ryouji: Oh, well, normally.

Maya:   I have a job to do. Excuse me...
- -
Misato: Although I can't say anything about your private life,
        Please don't seduce young girls, in this situation.

Ryouji: It's not your business to decide that.
        And, is it OK, if it is you, Katsuragi.

Misato: It depends on the answer you're about to give me.
        You must know the secrets of the Marduk Institute and that "ADAM,"

Ryouji: What?

Misato: Don't bother pleading ignorance.

Ryouji: It's not like you to ask help from someone.

Misato: I don't care at all what people say about me.
        I'm not feeling very reserved at the moment.
        The Fourth children was found just in time.
        What is the hidden reason for that?

Ryouji: I'll tell you one thing.

Ryouji: Malduk Institute does not exist.
        Nerv alone is pulling the strings.

Misato: Nerv alone?
        Commander Ikari?

Ryouji: Code Seven Zero Seven. Investigate it.

Misato: Seven Zero Seven?
        Shinji-kun's school?

Shinji: Misato-san.

Misato: What?

Shinji: Ritsuko-san expects you at the meeting for tomorrow's business trip.

Misato: Alright, thanks.

Misato: See you later.

Ryouji: hmm.

Ryouji: How going out for tea with me?

Shinji: I'm a guy.

- --
Shinji: I thought you'd be more serious, Kaji-san.

Ryouji: You're saying that to someone as reliable as me, Shinji-kun?

Shinji: Oh, sorry.

Ryouji: I'm sorry too.
        I didn't mean to say something so rude.
        Oh, I'll show you something good.

- --
Shinji: Are these water melons?

Ryouji: Don't you think they're cute?
        This is my hobby.
        Keep this secret from the others.
        Making something or growing something is wonderful!
        We can see and learn many things through it.
        It also brings pleasure.

Shinji: Also pain.

Ryouji: Do you hate pain?

Shinji: I don't like it.

Ryouji: Did you find something pleasurable?

Ryouji: That's good.
        But, one knowing many pains is kinder to others.
        That's different from weakness.

Ryouji: Hello,

Ryouji: From Katsuragi. The syncro-test will begin soon.

- --
Maya:   Plug depth fixed to 3.2.
        LCL concentration ...
        Harmonics level is minus 1.2, 1.5, 1.6, 1.8, 1.9..
        The present reading is 0.2.
        Level 3 Data deleted.
        The rest saved to Melchior.

Ritsuko: It's true.
        Shinji-kun's syncro ratio is getting worse.

Misato: What does that mean?

Ritsuko:I can't say.
        But, I suppose something happened in the last accident,
        something mental.

Misato: It's even more difficult to tell about Unit three's pilot.

Ritsuko: The pilot himself will be officially notified tomorrow.

Misato: hmmm.

- --
Hikari: Stand! Attention! Bow!

Touji:  Phew, Lunch, lunch!

Announce:Suzuhara Touji of second year A Class, Suzuhara Touji.
        You are expected in the Director's room immediately.

Touji:  What's that?

Kensuke: Did you do something?

Touji:  No, nothing I remember.

- --
Touji:  Excuse me, I'm Suzuhara Touji.

Ritsuko:You are Suzuhara Touji-kun?

- --
Shinji: How was your excursion to New-Yokosuka, yesterday?

        By the way, I obtained some slightly disturbing information.

- -
Shinji: Eva Unit Three?

        The one under construction in the states.
        Is it completed?

Shinji: No idea.

Kensuke: I know you have to keep it secret, but
        please tell me.

Shinji: I've never heard about that.

Kensuke: Don't you know the rumor that the booting test will be
        held at Second experiment installation in Matsushiro?

Shinji: I didn't know.

Kensuke: The pilot hasn't been selected yet?

Shinji: I don't know about that.

Kensuke: Misato-san could let me pilot it.
        Hey, Shinji, please ask her.
        I really want to pilot Eva.

Shinji: Really, I don't know.

Kensuke: Then the story that Unit Four was lost?

Shinji: What was that?

Kensuke:You really don't know about that?
        The second branch was destroyed.
        My daddy's section was in a panic.

Shinji: Really?

Kensuke: Presumably.

Shinji: I never heard anything from Misato-san.

        It doesn't concern the pilot at the end of system.
        If she doesn't tell you, you don't to know about it.
        Sorry for asking strange questions.
        hmm, Anyhow, Touji hasn't come back yet.

- --
Teacher: We, humanity, survived the hell called Second Impact,
        and got up afterwards.
        Currently, the number of children is decreasing, year by year.

Hikari: Oh,,

Touji:  Sorry for being late.

Teacher:I've heard your story. Take a seat.
        Well, those young generations who are the torchbearers of
        the future are...

- --
Kensuke:Hey, let's go home.

Shinji: What about Touji?

Kensuke: He's gonna be late,
        'cose he's on duty.
- --
Announce:It's time to go home.
        Those students remaining in the class rooms are strongly urged
        to go home immediately.
# Oh, Almost the same phrase appeared in GunBuster Episode 1.

Hikari: Suzuhara.

Touji:  Ah?

Hikari: You are on duty.
        You must straighten the desks, and write up the daily record.

Touji:  I haven't had lunch yet.
        When I finish, I'll do it.

Hikari: Suzuhara, your lunch is always a lunch box from the school shop.

Touji:  There's nobody who cooks for me.

Hikari: Suzuhara...-kun.

Touji:  hm?

Hikari: I have two sisters, One is Kodama, the other is Nozomi.
        I always make lunch boxes for them.

Touji:  That's a lot of work for you.

Hikari: So, I'm really good at cooking, though you might not think it.

Touji:  hmm.

Hikari: So, I always waste materials for lunch boxes.

Touji:  Waste...

Hikari: Oh!

Touji:  I'll help you with any amount of leftover disposal.

Hikari: Oh, really,
        Please help.
- --
Asuka:  (humming)
- -

Asuka:  Kaji-san.

Ryouji: Oh, Asuka?
        Sorry, I'm very busy now.
        Can you wait?

Asuka:  hmmm, but you have time to see Misato.

Ryouji: Ah!
        Not now!

Asuka:  Oh, this is our syncro-data.
        Four people?
        What! What does this mean?
        Who made this guy the Fourth children?
        No, I don't understand, what is this?
- --
NERV First Branch USA.

- --
Hikari: (humming)

- ---B PART:END---

From America, Eva Unit Three arrives at Matsushiro for the booting
test.  Everyone enjoys the last day of normal life, without knowing
tomorrow's tragedy. Next Episode is "Selective Recreation of Life"

ECTA 64: This is Ecta 64 calling Neopan 400.
        Confirm  cumulonimbus clouds in your immediate flight path.

Neopan 400: This is Neopan 400.  Cumulonimbus clouds confirmed.
        Barometer indicates no hazard.
        We'll maintain course, expect arrive on schedule.

Ecta 64: This is Ecta 64, roger and out.


Shinji: Uhm, where is Asuka?

Misato: She's gone already.  She is trying to avoid me.

Shinji: Why?

Misato: Shin-chan, it seems women's hearts are still hard for
       you to understand.

Shinji &Misato: Uhm... By the way,

Misato: Go ahead.

Shinji: Is the rumor that Unit 4 was lost true?
        I heard there was an accident and Unit 4 was blown up.

Misato:It's true.  Unit 4 is gone, along with Nerv 2nd Branch.  It was
        during the test of the S2 Engine.
        We'll be OK here. All three units are working fine.
        Both the pilots and the staff are excellent, too.

Shinji: But I heard Unit 3 is coming from the US... The activation test will
        take place at Matsushiro, right?

Misato: Mmmm, I'll leave the house for about 4days, but don't worry since
        Kaji will take care of you guys.

Shinji: But how about the test?

Misato: Ritsuko will be there too, so there won't be any trouble.

Shinji: But what  about the pilot?

Misato: Well, about the pilot...


Shinji: Huh?  Coming!

Kensuke: Good morning, madam.  Today, I came here to make a request to
        you, Major Katsuragi.
        Please make me the pilot for Evangelion Unit 3.

Misato: What?
Ritsuko: So, Shinji doesn't know about it yet?

Misato: I just can't find a chance to tell him.  I'm worried;  I can't
        figure out what he's thinking.

Ritsuko: Come on, you're the one who wanted to be his guardian.

Misato: Yea, I know...  So, when will the pilot be called?

Ritsuko: It's gonna be tomorrow, since there are still
         preparations to be made.

Misato: The pilot may tell him about it by himself.

Ritsuko: That's impossible.  He wasn't happy enough to brag about it.
        The condition he made was to transfer his little sister to the
        headquarters' medical unit.

Kensuke: Misato is cold, really.  Since I'm most willing, why don't they use
        me, even as a back up.

Touji: Huh?  Oh yea.

Shinji: What's up?  You left home much earlier than me but you're pretty

Touji: Oh, no marital quarrel today?

Asuka: I just didn't want to see your faces!  You Three Stooges!

Kensuke: Now for lunch.  Huh?  Where's Touji?

Shinji: I don't see him anywhere.

Kensuke: Gone? Without eating lunch?  HIM?  That's impossible.

Shinji: Yes, he's been acting strange lately.

Rei: Suzuhara-kun,

Touji: Huh? Oh, it's you, Ayanami.  If you're looking for Shinji, he
        isn't here.
        You know about me.  Souryu seems to know about it, too.

Rei:    Yes.

Touji:  Shinji is the only one who doesn't know.
        It's really rare of you to worry about someone else.

Rei:    I am?  I don't really understand.

Touji:  You're worried about Shinji.

Rei:    Really?  May be that's true.

Touji:  Yup.

Asuka:  Hikari! Let's eat lunch.

Misato: Late for two hours; at last, he arrives.
        He's the first guy to make me wait this long.

Ritsuko:When you were dating, you would leave without waiting, right?

Teacher: Therefore, it was the incident generally known as Second Impact.
        I was living at Nebukawa at the time, but now, it is under the sea
        because Antarctica's ice was melted and sea level has risen...

Touji: I'm sorry, transfer student.  I have to hit you.  I have to hit you
        or I won't be satisfied.

Hikari: I'm sorry, Asuka.  You always walk home with Ikari.

Asuka:  Don't worry, I'm with Shinji as a duty, and I'm not in the mood to see
        his face now.
        It's about Suzuhara, right?

Hikari: Yes. Can you tell?

Asuka:  It's so easy to see it.  Only those Three Stooges can't see it.

Hikari: But Ikari-kun seems naive.

Asuka:  That one is the dullest.  Also an idiot.  He doesn't know how to
        get along with other people.

Hikari: Really.
        Ayanami-san might be the girl Suzuhara likes.

Asuka: Suzuhara likes that honors student?

Hikari: They were getting along well at lunch time.

Asuka:  That girl knows how to get along with people about a ten thousandth as
        well as Shinji.

Hikari: Really?

Asuka:  Really!
        May I ask a question?

Hikari: What?

Asuka:  What do you see in that hot headed idiot?

Hikari: He's so kind...

Asuka:  What?

Woman(On TV):   Oh, making up with you then was the mistake!

Man(On TV):     Don't tell me that now...

Shinji: Well...

Asuka: Mr.Kaji takes long baths.

Shinji: Who will pilot Unit 3?

Asuka: What?  You haven't heard about it yet?

Shinji: Who?

Asuka: ...I don't know.

Ryouji: That was a good hot bath.  Huh?  Bickering again?  I can't believe it.
        Are you two are like this whenever Katsuragi is gone?

Asuka:  No!  I want to smile pretty since you are staying with me tonight.
        But not today.  I can't do it!

Ryouji: I understand.  Let's sleep.  Hitting the sack is the best solution
        in a situation like this.

Shinji: Are you asleep already, Mr.Kaji?

Ryouji: No, not yet.

Shinji: What kind of person is my father?

Ryouji: Well, that question is a surprise.  I thought you were going to
        talk about Katsuragi.

Shinji: It seems you're always with him.

Ryouji: The deputy commander is the one with him all the time.
        Are you asking around about your father?

Shinji: I haven't been with him for a long time...

Ryouji: So, you don't know.

Shinji: But I have learned many things about my father recently.  About his
        job, about my mother. So,...

Ryouji: That's wrong.  You just think you understood.  Well, that's why
        people try to know each other.  That's why life is interesting.

Shinji: Does that fit with your relationship with Misato, too?

Ryouji:  Kanojo("she", girlfriend in Japanese) in Kanji means a woman far way.
        For us, women exist on the shore across.  It means there is a river
        wider and deeper than the ocean between men and women.

Shinji: I can't understand grown-ups.

Female Operator: Unit 3 activation test: T minus 30minutes.

Central Command Vehicle (inside)

Male Operator: Data link to Evangelion Unit 1 established.

Ritsuko: It is possible to use this in battle now.

Misato: Oh, good for you.

Ritsuko:You don't sound that eager.  When this unit is delivered, it will
        be under your direct command.

Misato: Exclusive possession of four EVAs...  If we wanted to, we
        could destroy the world.

Ritsuko: Did you talk to Shinji?

Misato: After this test.

Female Operator: Fourth Children has arrived.  Squad 2, begin entry
        preparations immediately.

Hikari: He hasn't come yet, Asuka.

Asuka:  He may not come today.

Hikari: I thought he would eat with me today.  Do you want to have this?

Kensuke:Unit 3 should be in Japan already, right?

Shinji: Yes. I think it arrived yesterday.

Kensuke: I'm so jealous.  Who's gonna pilot it?  Touji, maybe? He's absent

Shinji: No way.

Operator: Entry plug secured.  Begin Phase-one connection.
        Transmitting pulses.  Graph display within norms.

Female Operator: Full nerve link established.  List clear through 2-5-5-0.
        Harmonics all reading standard.
        Approaching absolute threshold.
        There's a huge power surge coming from inside the unit...

Ritsuko: Abort the test.  Cut the circuits.

Female Operator: Impossible.  High energy response within the unit.

Ritsuko:  It can't be... an Angel?

Shigeru: Accident involving an explosion at Matsushiro.

Female: Status unknown.

Fuyutsuki: Send rescue and the 3rd corp.  Take care of everything before
        the Self Defense Force comes.

Shinji: An accident at Matsushiro?  No...  What about Misato?

Rei:    The can't get contact yet.

Shinji: Oh, no. What should I do?

Asuka:  What are you whining about?  We can't do anything but worry now.

Shinji: But we have to fight the Angel on our own...

Rei:    Commander Ikari is taking direct command for now.

Shinji: My father is...?

Shigeru: We've got a visual from Nobeyama.  Visual on the main screen.

All:    aaaah...

Fuyutsuki: Just as we thought.

Gendou: Transmit the termination signal.  Execute forced ejection of the
        entry plug.

Maya:   Impossible.  It doesn't recognize either the termination signal or
        the plug ejection code.

Gendou: How about the pilot?

Makoto: We have his respiration and pulse, however...

Gendou: From this time, Evangelion Unit 3 is abandoned, and the target is
        recognized as the 13th angel.

Makoto: B, But, sir.

Gendou: Develop the front at Nobeyama as planned, and destroy the target.

Shigeru:The target is approaching.

Makoto: All units, stand by for ground battle.

Shinji: What? No way... an Angel?  You mean that's an Angel?

Gendou: Yes. It's the target.

Shinji: The target?  It's an EVA, isn't it?

Asuka:  I can't believe it.  Was it taken over by an Angel?

Shinji: Is it piloted by a kid, just like the other units?  A child my

Asuka:  Don't you know yet?  In Unit 3,...

Shinji: Asuka?

Asuka:  Yeeeeee!

Shinji: Asuka!
Makoto: Eva Unit 2 was silenced completely.

Maya:   Pilot has ejected. Salvage crew is on the way.

Shigeru:The target is moving toward Unit Zero.

Gendou: Rei, avoid close combat, and stop the target.  I'll send Unit 1 soon.

Rei:    Roger.
Rei:    He is inside...
        Ulk, ugrrrrr.

Maya:   The Angel is invading the left arm of Unit Zero.  The synapses are being

Gendou: Cut off the left arm.  Hurry.

Maya:   But we have to sever the neural connection.

Gendou: Cut off the left arm.

Maya:   Yes, sir.

Rei:    Yeeeeeee!

Maya:   Mid-level damage to Unit Zero, and the pilot has been injured.

Shinji: No...

Gendou: The target is approaching.  You will contact it within 20. You
        will take care of it.

Shinji:  You say it's the target,
        but isn't there a person inside?
        A kid my age.
        An entry plug.  There is a person inside of it.

Makoto: Trouble with life support.

Maya:   The pilot is in danger.

Fuyutsuki: Damn it.  Cut the synchronization to 60%.


Fuyutsuki: But if you maintain this condition, the pilot will die.

Gendou: Shiji, why don't you fight?

Shinji: But there's a person inside, father.

Gendou: It doesn't matter.  It's an Angel.  Our Enemy.

Shinji: But I can't do it.  I have to save him.  I can't kill a person.

Gendou: You will die.

Shinji: I don't care.  It's much better than killing someone.

Gendou: Go ahead and cut the synchronization between the pilot and Unit 1

Maya:   Cut it, sir?

Gendou: Yes. Switch the circuit to the dummy plug.

Maya:   But sir, the dummy system still has many problems, and without
        Akagi's direction...

Gendou: It will work better than the current pilot.  Do it.

Maya:   Yes, sir.

Shiji:  What?  What are you doing, father?!

Makoto: Signal reception confirmed.

Maya:   Control system has switched.

Male    Operator: All nerves are now connected to the dummy system.

Female  Operator: 32.8% of the emotional factor is unclear.  Unable to monitor.

Gendou: It doesn't matter.  Release the system.  Commence the attack.

All:    Aaah...

Maya:   Is this the power of the dummy plug?

Female Operator: All systems are normal.

Male Operator: More increase in gain.

Maya:   Ah!

Shinji: Stop it! Father, no!  Please stop doing this!

        Damn! Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop!

        Aa! Stop it!  NOOOO!

Shigeru: E, Eva Unit 3.. no... the target was completely silenced.
Hikari: (Humming)
        This looks good.  Kodama, Nozomi, and me.  Lunch for four.  Will he
        eat with me tomorrow?
Rescuer male: Over here!  A survivor!  BQR, get the medics, hurry!

Male:   Yes, the recorder's graphs... (Unable to hear) Get rid of it.

Misato: Alive...

Ryouji: You were lucky, Katsuragi.

Misato: How about Ritsuko?

Ryouji: Don't worry.
        She's in better shape than you.

Misato: Ah-ha.  How about EVA Unit 3?

Ryouji: It was destroyed as an Angel by Unit 1.

Misato: I, I still haven't told anything to Shiji.
Misato: Shinji...

Shinji: Misato, you're OK.

Misato: I, I'm sorry.  I had to tell you something important, but...

Shinji: Misato, I've...a person... My father...  I begged him not to...

Misato: Shinji, I'm sorry.  I'm sorry.

Maya:   Report from the entry plug salvage crew:  Survival of
        the pilot confirmed.

Shinji: He's alive?!

Male 1: Roger.  Cut the deformed part with a laser.

Male 2: Send exchanged LCL sample to (unable to hear), top priority.

Female 2: Destroy the adhering biological parts.  Prepare for heat

Misato: The pilot of Unit 3 is,
        The 4th Children is

Shiji:  Touji?

Misato: Shiji? Shinji? Shinji? Shinji? Shinji?
