---A PART---
Asuka:  (humming)
Misato : mmm...,oh,Shin-chan,you changed the soup stock,didn't you?

Shinji : Yes,stock of dried bonito. That's Ritsuko-san't souvenir.

Asuka : Eek!

Asuka : Too hot!!

Shinji : I'm sorry.

Asuka : grr...you always begs so.Do you think you're really wrong?

Shinji : hmm...

Asuka : Shinji,it seems you beg as a conditional reflex not to be scolded.
Shinji :ah,I'm sorry.

Asuka : Like you did. You're essentially too self-punishing.

Misato : Oh,oh.That's Shin-chan's life-style.
Asuka : You're optimistic to accept his lifestyle.
        Lately,you're too soft on Shinji,aren't you?
Misato : Me?

Asuka : You recovered the frendship with Kaji-san, but you shouldn't 
        give us your happiness.
Misato : I have nothing to do with that Kaji.

Ryouji (voice from the telephone) :
        "Hey,Katsuragi,I found the pub that serves good beverages.
        How about tonight?Thank you."
Misto : Ou,Ouch.

Asuka : I know I've never gone around together in such dirty relationship.
        Heck, you pretend to show yourself as a guardian.
        Hypocrytic! I hate that!!
Motal disease   epi
and             sode

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

Operetor(male) : Clear all course adjusting values.

Makoto : Misato-san,you seem exhausted.

Misato : Due to some reasons.Due to my privacy.

Ritsuko : Due to Kaji-kun?

Misato : Shut up. ow!
        Well,how about the Third Children?
Maya : Look.

Misato : Well.
        Wow,(looking at the monitor) I hope he gains confidence 
        to know this.
(In the Entry Plug)

Misato :Can you hear me,Shinji-kun?

Shinji :hmm..ah, Misato-san! How is the result of the test?


Shinji : huh!

Asuka :I'm beaten!
        He easily exceeds me!
        'cause he did it such easily, to be frank, I feel a bit vexing.
        Great,wonderful, strong, too strong!
        huh! Undefeatable Shinji-sama!
        Now that our job will be easier, won't it?
        But, we have to do our best not to be left behind.
Rei :Good bye.

Asuka :(thumping the door of her locker)huh! mmmm...

(In a bus)

Bus announce :Next stop is,Seishou Kabuse,Seishou Kabuse.
        Convinient for the Bashar,used books & game store.
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. 2.5 km per hour.

Ritsuko : You're late!

Misato : Ah, sorry.
        What's going on? The observation centre of Mt.Fuji did ...
Shigeru : ...not detect it.It suddenly appeared right above.

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

Misato : What does it mean?

Ritsuko : Is it the new kind of Angels?

Maya : MAGI doesn't commit the dicision.

Misato :Oh no. Commander Ikari is absent in this situation!

(three Evangelions are standing by)
Misato :Can you hear me?
        Target's data are those I've sent.
        Presently, we don't have further data.
        Approach carefully, watch its reaction,
        and If possible, lead it to outside the urban area.
Asuka : Alright, sensei.
        I think Shinji-kun must be the van.
Shinji :ah,huh?

Asuka : well,in any case,
        This is a job for a man of good record, daring and the number
         one of the Syncro-rate.
         Or do you have no confidence,Shin-chan?
Shinji :No! I am ready to do!

Asuka : mmm...

Shinji :I'll show a good example for you,Asuka.

Asuka :Wh,Wh,What do you mean!

Misato :Hey ,guys ....

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

Misato :Oh, that was ..

Shinji :(interupting Misato) To fight is manly job.

Asuka :Anachronistic!
        Unit two, backup.
Rei :Unit Zero acts as backup, too.

Misato :My kids do that, without my permission.

Ritsuko : Shinji-kun developped much,didn't he?

Misto :No. I must scold him when he returns.

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

Rei :Not Yet.

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

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

Asuka : Shit!

Asuka : Oof!

Shinji : You don't come?
        (I try to prevent it to leaving.)
Ritsuko : It vanished!

Misto :What?

Makoto :Pattern blue. Angel detected. Right below Unit One.

Shinji :What? Sh, Shadow! Ah,huah!
        What's this! 
Misato :Run, Shinji-kun, run!

Rei : Ikari-kun.

Asuka :You fool,what are you doing!

Shinji :hoah,whoa!
        Misato-san, what's going on? Misao-san!
        Asuka, Ayanami, cover me!
        Misato-san,can you hear me,Misato-san!
Misato : hm. Eject plug! Send signal!

Maya :No response.
Shinji :Misato-san, Misato-san!

Misato :Shinji-kun!

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

Asuka :(Fool! It's no use of perfect record on the examination-only!)
Maya :It vanished again.

Ritsuko :Asuka, be careful!

Asuka :Shadow!?

Asuka :No!

(buildings sink in the black "shadow".)

Asuka :What? City is ...

Misato :Asuka, Rei. withdraw!

Asuka :hm, wa..

Rei : Wait!

Asuka :huh?

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

Misato :You are ordered! withdraw!

Maya : Major Katsuragi must feel pain.

Ritsuko : I hear that Umbilical Cable was pulled up but
          it lost its head.
Maya : That means...

Ritsuko : Energy remained withi the internal battery is little.
          If Shinji-kun won't blindly move Eva and
          if he can endure with life-support mode,
          he can survive for 16 hours.
Operator (male A) : Second  tank squadron, arrange completed.

Operator (female) : Roger. Keep the present position and stand by.

Operator (male B) : Sub laser, line opens. Information sent.

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

Shigeru : UN Force's seiging is complete.

Misato : that Shadow's status?

Makoto : not moving. It seesed the motion when it exceeded 600 meter in 
        diameter. But land troop is useful?

Misato : It intends to give us pressure.

Asuka : Oh well,
        Acting arbitrarily without consultation, defying the operation.
        It's the consequence of his own fault.
        He made good result on yesterday's test,
        though he said, "I'll show a good example", huh, what a 
        frivolous boy he is!
Asuka : Wh, What?
        Does abusing Shinji makes you so unpleasant?
Rei : Do you get on Eva to be praised by somebody?

Asuka : No. I wanna be praised not by somebody but by myself!

Misato : Stop, you people.
        Yes, he acted arbitrarily without consultation.
        So I'll have to scold him when he's back.

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

Shinji : I never thought sleeping exhausts me.
         (Shinji activates monitor.)
         Still only white noise.
    Rader and sonar has gotten no response.
    Because this space is too vast.
    12 hours after 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, about 680 meter in diameter, about 3 nano meter in 
         thickness. It sustains that super-thin space with the 
         inverted A.T.Field, and the interior of the Field is the 
         imaginary space called "Dirac's Sea."
         It may connect to another space.
Misato : What's that sphere?

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

Misato : It means the black shadow that introjected Unit One is the target?

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

Shinji : Mm...
        Water is getting muddy! Hug.
        Purification capacity is reducing.
    Hah. M,m.. it smells.
    blood, smells of blood.
    Ha, No! I hate this place!
    Why can't I release this lock!
    Open! Let me out!
    Misato-san!! What's going on, Misato-san!
    Asuka! Ayanami!! Eee! Ritusko-san! hug,
    Father, hug, cough, m, g, mm,
    Please, help me.
Misato : Forced salvaging Eva ?
Ritsuko : It's the only way that might be possible.

        Dropping 992 existing NN depth charges  to the centeral portion,
        in timing with,
        interfering the imaginary circtuit of the Angel in 1 mili second
        with two existing  Eva's A.T. Fields.
    In that moment, concentrating the explosive energy,
    to break the Angel together with Dirac's Sea 
    that forms its body.
Misato : But, you know, how Eva's body, eee,
        will be. Heck, 
        It's not the rescue operaion.
Ritsuko : In this operation, salvage of the body of Unit One 
        is the number one priority over everything.
        We don't care if the body is destroyed.
Misato : Hah, wait a moment!

Ritsuko : In this case, we don't care the pilot's life.

Misato : Mgg.

(Misto slaps Ritsuko)

Ritsuko : Aw!

Ritusko : Oh, it's your fault if you lose Shinji-kun. Huh, remember that.
Misato : What's the reason why you and the commandor Ikari
        stick on the Unit One ?
        Huh, what is Eva ?
Ritsuko : The materials I gave you tells you all about Eva.

Misato : You are liar.

Ritsuko : Trust me, Misto.
        I'll command anything about this operation. 
Ritsuko : We'll forward flights to the Kankuu airport.
        Contact the air controll and the air transport division
        of the JDAF.
 Misato : (thinking) Second Impact, Project Instrumentality, and Adam.
        There're more secrets that I am ignorant of.
 (In the Entry Plug)

Shinji : Who? 
Shinji ' : IKARI Shinji.

Shinji : It's me.

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

Shinji : Two ?

Shinji ' : The self who's actually watched by others and 
         the self who wathces itself.
         IKARI Shinji in your mind.
         IKARI Shinji in KATSURAGI Misato's mind.
         IKARI Shinji in Souryuu Asuka's mind.
         IKARI Shinji in AYANAMI Rei's mind.
         IKARI Shinji in IKARI Gendou's mind.
        Any IKARI Shinji is differnt from each other,
        but each of them is true IKARI Shinji.
        You're afraid of IKARI Shinji in other's mind.
Shinji : I'm afraid of being hated.

Shinji : You hate to be hurted.
        Who's bad ?
        Father is bad.
        Father who deserted me.
Shinji : I am bad.


Asuka : This way you always think yourself bad!
        That is "self-punishing."


Shinji : Heck, it's me who can do nothin'.

Misato :It's you that think you can do nothing?


Rei : Don't you trust your father ?


Shinji : (thought) I think I hate father. But I'm not sure.


Gendou : Well done, Shinji.

Shinji : Father called me by my name.
        I was praised by that my father.
Shinji ' : You'll live with chewing the cub of the pleasure.

Shinji : If I trust this word, heck, I can live on from now on.

Shinji ' : ... by deceiving yourself ?

Shinji : Everyone does so. Huh,
        Doing so, people live.
Shinji ' : Unless you continue to think you may not change yourself,
         you can't live on.
Shinji : There're too many pains in this world for me to live.
Shinji ' : For example, you cannot swim ? 

Shinji : Human isn't made floatable.

Shinji : It's self-decetion.

Shinji : I don't care whatever you refer to it.

Shinji : You has been closing your eyes and turning your ears deaf 
        against 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 : This is not your business to care others!
(flashback from the episode 1 )

Gendou : Get Out!
Shinji : No, I don't want to hear that!

Shinji' : Hey, you run away again.
        No one  can live on with linking things one enjoys like 
        the rosary.
        Particularly, I cannot.
Shinji : I found one thing I enjoy.
        Am I wrong if I do the thing enjoyable?
Makoto : Theoretically, reserved power source of the Entry Plug
         will nearly end.
Maya : Life support system of the Plug Suit will be in red zone.

Ritsuko : We shall bring the schedule 12 minutes forward.
        while Shinji-kun is likely to be alive.
Shinji : Father,
        Am I a useless child ?
Shinji : It's from your 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 did a praiseworthy thing.

Gendou : You shouldn't run, Shinji.

Misato :

Shinji : I hate this place,
        and loneliness.
     The circulation of Oxygen ended here.
     Fu, Fu, F, it's cold.
     Fuah, No, Suit reaches its margin.
     Now the end, hah, tired, haah, of everything.
Shinji : Mam.

(flashback ?)

Yui : Is it enough?
     Well, that's good for you.
Shigeru : Both of Evas, stand by the 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 take full swing.

Ritsuko : But nothing have we done.

Misato : Oh! Shinji-kun is ...

Ritsuko : Unbelievable. The energy within Unit One has reached 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 the thing like that ?

Ritsuko : What, what thing we copied from ...

Misato : (thought) I understand that EVA isn't just a copy of 
        the First Angel, though, how is NERV going to use EVAs
        after it defeats all Angels ?
Unit One : Ggwoooooooo.....

(After that, Misato opens the Entry Plug)

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

        Shinji-kun, are you alright ? Shinji-kun!!
Shinji : ... I just wanted to see ..... again .....

Misato : (weeps)

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

Misato : (weeps)

(in the cage, workers washing EVA )

Ritsuko : I've never felt Eva more horrible than today.
        Is EVA truely our side ?
        It may hate us.
        Major KATSURAGI may be aware of something.
Gendou : I see. At the moment, it's OK.

Ritsuko : If Rei and Shinji-kun know the secrets of EVA,
        they may will never forgive us.
(In a sickroom , Shinji wakes up. Rei is by his side.)

Shinji : Ho-hum.

Rei : You may sleep today. We'll do thing for you.

Shinji : Hm. But, I'm alright now.

Rei : Well, that's good for you.

Shinji : Huh ...

(Rei goes out the room. Asuka is hiding behind the door.)

Asuka : ah, oh! Mmm ...

Shinji : (chuckles)

Shinji : (sniff)

Shinji : still smells, of blood.
