In one episode, Rei and Shinji exchange EVAs during an experiment in synchronizing. However, when Shinji speaks to Rei over the video link, her display shows him as broadcasting from "EVA-01", his normal EVA, when he should be shown in "EVA-00", her normal EVA. See more »

You DID see her at the hospital this afternoon, didn't you?
She will be ready to work again in twenty days. By then, we'll be ready to reactivate Unit 00 from cryo-stasis.
It's so hard on these poor children.

Greatest Achievement in Audio/Visual Entertainment
Whether you enjoy the world of anime or not this is an experience you must have before you die. Nothing else in the world is like it. For the sake of your personal experience I cannot tell you much about it and here's why. The first 20 some episodes you are immersed in the semi-futuristic world of Tokyo 3 and the characters are developed beautifully, some of the best character development I've ever witnessed. You get a very very good feel for the world and the situation they live in, only to have that blown away in the final episodes. Please for the sake of yourself watch this, from the start, you will not regret it.
Hideaki Anno has conceived of a story more important to my life than any other.
Hideaki Anno is pure genius.
