Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (1997)
Shinji Ikari: I'm so fucked up.

Misato Katsuragi: You hate yourself, don't you? That's why you hurt others. Deep down you know you suffer more when you cause someone else pain... than if you just let yourself get hurt. But Shinji, that was your decision, so it makes it a valid choice. That's what you wanted. So, that makes it worthwhile. Stop lying to yourself and realize that you *do* have options. Then... accept the choices you've made.
Shinji Ikari: But you're not me! You don't know what I have to go through! You don't understand!
Misato Katsuragi: [enraged] So fucking what if I'm not you! That doesn't mean it's okay for you to give up! If you do, I'll *never* forgive you as long as I live!

Shinji Ikari: No-one understands me.
Rei Ayanami: You never understood anything.
Shinji Ikari: I thought this was supposed to be a world without pain and without uncertainty.
Rei Ayanami: That's because you thought that everyone else felt the same as you do.
Shinji Ikari: You betrayed me! You betrayed my feelings!
Rei Ayanami: You misunderstood from the very beginning. You just believed what you wanted to believe.
Shinji Ikari: Nobody wants me, so they can all just die.
Rei Ayanami: Then what is your hand for?
Shinji Ikari: Nobody cares whether I live or die. Nothing will change... so they can all just die...
Rei Ayanami: Then what is your heart for?
Shinji Ikari: It would be better if I never existed. I should just die too.
Rei Ayanami: Then why are you here?
Shinji Ikari: Is it OK for me to be here?
[the word "Silence" flashes on the screen and fades away]
Shinji Ikari: NOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooo!

Misato Katsuragi: The power's still on. There's still time. Shinji, listen to me... from now on, you're on your own. You'll have to make your own decisions. No one can do it for you.
Shinji Ikari: I... I can't. I'm no good. I can't pilot EVA if all I do is hurt and kill people. I thought I had no choice but to pilot EVA, but I was just lying to myself. I'm not worthy of piloting an EVA, because I don't understand anything. I'm incapable of doing anything good for anybody else! I did something terrible, though. I killed Kaworu! I'm a horrible person. I'm dishonest, and a coward. All I ever do is hurt people. So I'd rather do nothing at all!
Misato Katsuragi: I'm not gonna feel sorry for you. If you don't like feeling pain, then you can just sit here and let them kill you! Crying isn't going to solve anything either!

Misato Katsuragi: Giving up halfway is worse than never trying at all. Come on! Get up! MOVE IT!
Shinji Ikari: I want to die. Just leave me here.
Misato Katsuragi: Stop talking like a stubborn little brat! Like it or not, you're still alive. Get moving and DO something! You can die later!

Asuka Langly Soryu: You don't understand anything. You just stay away from me.
Shinji Ikari: I do understand.
Asuka Langly Soryu: You couldn't possibly - you jerk! You really think you can ever know me? You think you can even help me? Don't make me laugh! You're such a moron! You will never understand!
Shinji Ikari: How can I ever understand you if you won't say anything? You never talk to me, but you expect me to understand you! That's *impossible*!

Shinji Ikari: I wanna stay with you, Asuka... and I want to help you. But, I don't know what to do.
Asuka Langly Soryu: Then don't do anything. Don't come near me. All you ever do is hurt me.
Shinji Ikari: Asuka, help me! Please! Asuka, you're the only person that can help me!
Asuka Langly Soryu: Liar.
Shinji Ikari: Asuka...
Asuka Langly Soryu: Anyone will do. You don't care who it is! You're afraid of Misato, and the First Child... you're afraid of your mother and father, too! So now you come running to me...
Shinji Ikari: No, I need you to help me...
Asuka Langly Soryu: [talking over Shinji] - because that's the easiest way to keep from getting hurt! You never even loved yourself! You're all you have and you never even learned to like yourself!
[Pushes Shinji down]
Asuka Langly Soryu: How pathetic.
Shinji Ikari: [getting back up] Help me. Somebody... please, help me. Help me. Help me... somebody... please help me. Somebody, HELP ME! Don't leave me alone! Don't abandon me! PLEASE DON'T KILL ME!
Asuka Langly Soryu: No.

Shinji Ikari: Goodbye... Mother.

JSSDF Soldier: [the JSSDF army is completely overwhelming NERV HQ, when suddenly a crucifix-shaped burst of energy comes from the lake outside] What the hell is that?
JSSDF Commander: [EVA-02, piloted by Asuka, rises from the lake lifting a battleship in its hands, its eyes glowing like a demon's] Dear God!
Asuka Langley Sohryuu: Schwein-hund!
[Asuka flings the battleship at the JSSDF, resulting in a massive explosion that wipes out an entire artillery battalion]
Asuka Langley Sohryuu: Moma! Moma! Now I understand! The meaning of the AT field! You were always protecting me! Always watching over me!
[Two large missiles hit EVA-02 but Asuka shrugs them off harmlessly]
Asuka Langley Sohryuu: Always, we were always together moma!
Maya Ibuki: [over the radio inside NERV HQ] EVA Unit-02 has activated! Asuka is okay! She's alive!
Shinji Ikari: Asuka?
JSSDF Commander: [EVA-02 is wading through a barrage of fire from JSSDF tanks and hoverjets] The cable! Focus on the cable! Use whatever you can to sever it!
Asuka Langley Sohryuu: [EVA-02's umbilical power cable is severed] Scheiss!... Even without my umbilical cable attached... I've still got 12,000 plates of fortified armor! And I've got my AT field!
[EVA-02 projects its AT field like a weapon, destroying several hoverjets]
Asuka Langley Sohryuu: There's no way I can lose!
[EVA-02 grabs a hoverjet by its tail]
Asuka Langley Sohryuu: EAT THIS ARSCHLOCH!
[EVA-02 swings the hoverjet by its tail so its front smashes into a second hoverjet. In one fluid motion, it roundhouse kicks a third, then flings the remaining tail piece of the first a fourth one, destroying them. The JSSDF is in full route]
Asuka Langley Sohryuu: .


"Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Beginning and the End, or "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" (#1.24)" (1996)
Shinji Ikari: It's time.
Kaworu Nagisa: Time to go?
Shinji Ikari: Yeah. I have to go to bed.
Kaworu Nagisa: With me?
Shinji Ikari: [stutters] No!

Kaworu Nagisa: Humans constantly feel pain in their hearts. Because the heart is so sensitive to pain, humans also feel that to live is to suffer. You're so delicate, like glass, especially your heart.
Shinji Ikari: Me?
Kaworu Nagisa: Yes, and you have my regard for it.
Shinji Ikari: Regard?
Kaworu Nagisa: In other words, I love you.

[Unit-01 grips Kaworu in its left hand]
Shinji Ikari: Kaworu-kun, why?
Kaworu Nagisa: Because it's my destiny to continue to live, even if it may result in the destruction of humanity. But I can also die here. Life and death are of equal value to me. Dying of your own will. That is the one and only absolute freedom there is.
Shinji Ikari: What? Kaworu-kun, I don't understand what you're saying! Kaworu-kun...
Kaworu Nagisa: And, you are not a being who should die. Your people need the future. Thank you. I'm glad I met you.
[for a long, long moment, Shinji and the EVA hold still, as Kaworu looks up at them. Then, the fist closes with a loud crush]

[last lines]
Shinji Ikari: Kaworu-kun said that he loved me. It was... it was the first time someone told me they loved me. He was like me, and Ayanami. I loved him. Kaworu-kun was the one who should have survived. He was a much better person than I am. Kaworu-kun should have been the one to survive.
Misato Katsuragi: You're wrong. Only those who have the will to live get to survive. He wished to die. He abandoned his will to live, clinging instead to a false hope. You did nothing wrong, Shinji-kun.
Misato Katsuragi: You're cold, Misato-san.


"Neon Genesis Evangelion: Asuka Strikes! (#1.8)" (1995)
Asuka Langley Soryu: [EVA-02 will not start because Shinji is in the cockpit with Asuka]
Asuka Langley Soryu: It's thought noise! I told you not to disturb me!
Shinji Ikari: What do you mean?
Asuka Langley Soryu: [sighs frustratedly] You're thinking in Japanese, aren't you? If you MUST think, do it in German!
Shinji Ikari: Uh, well, I'll try... um, strudel, bratwurst...
Asuka Langley Soryu: Ach! Dummkopf!

Ryoji Kaji: [to Shinji] So, I understand you're living with Katsuragi.
Shinji Ikari: Uh, yeah...
Ryoji Kaji: So, is she still so... wild in bed?
Shinji Ikari, Misato Katsuragi, Ryoji Kaji, Asuka Langley Soryu, Toji Suzuhara, Kaworu Nagisa: WHAAAAAT?


"Neon Genesis Evangelion: Unfamiliar Ceiling (#1.2)" (1995)
Shinji Ikari: [naked] M... M... Mis... Misato!
Misato Katsuragi: What?
Shinji Ikari: A p-p... A pe... pe... A p... A p... Huh?
Misato Katsuragi: Oh, him? He's one of those new warm water penguins.
Shinji Ikari: That was... what?
Misato Katsuragi: His name's Pen-Pen. He's your other roommate.
[takes a sip of beer]
Misato Katsuragi: Um... why don't you cover up?

[Shinji is moving in with Misato and putting away the groceries; Misato is in the other room, changing]
Shinji Ikari: [Notices Pen Pen's habitat] Hey, what's in the other refrigerator?
Misato Katsuragi: Oh, don't bother him! He's probably still sleeping!
Shinji Ikari: Still... sleeping?...


"Neon Genesis Evangelion: Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win! (#1.9)" (1995)
Asuka Langly Soryu: [threatening Shinji through the dividing wall between her room and his] This is the unbreakable Wall of Jericho, Third Child.
Shinji Ikari: What...?
Asuka Langly Soryu: Take one step over this wall and you'll be a dead man!


Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance (2009)
Ryoji Kaji: Say, is Colonel Katsuragi around here?
Shinji Ikari: Huh?
Ryoji Kaji: I'm an old friend of hers. I bet we could swap stories about her snoring keeping us up an night. Right, Shinji?


"Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angel Attack (#1.1)" (1995)
Shinji Ikari: So, you're asking me to take this thing and go out there and fight?!
Gendo Ikari: Correct.
Shinji Ikari: How could you do this to me?! I thought you didn't want me! Why?! Why did you have to call me now, father?!
Gendo Ikari: Because I have a use for you.
