                "Neon Genesis Evangelion: Episode 17"
                Translated Speech Script.

                Written by Kentaro ONIZUKA


Hmmmm, "Eva" is going darker and darker, bl..dier and bl..dier, more
and more serious. By the last episode, every one may die.  As the
result, the earth becomes the stage of battle among Eva Units and Angels,
where only one person remaining is Gendo.
# This is my guess.

Kihl:   You rejected the interrogation to the only person concerned to
        the incident this time, the pilot of the unit one.
        Major Katsuragi.

Misato: Yes.
        His emotion is very unstable.
        I don't think it's a good idea that he stands here at the moment.

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

B:      In this incident, isn't it that the Angels tried to contact a human 

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

C:      As long as he remembers correctly.

Misato: No exterior operation to his memory was recognized.

C:      Eva's AC recorder was not operating.
        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 the concept of mind?
        Do they understand human thoughts?
        Those are absolutely unknown.

D:      This incident shows the new point that the Angel tried to possess
        How about the possiblity of that point linking to the predictable 
        13th Angel.

Misato: Considering the patterns so far,
        the systematic coupling among the Angels is negative.

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

Misato: What does that mean?

Kihl:   You are not permitted to question.

Misato: Understood.

Kihl:   That's it. Lieve.

Misato: Yes.

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

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

Kihl:   very short. You mean so?

        Episode 17
        The fourth
        Qualified Person 

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

NurseB: You mean that first aid in the Incident E?
        It's long since been hospitalized here.

NurseC: Quite difficult case is that injury.

NurseB: She's still a primary student.

NurseA: Has come today, that boy?

NurseC: Yeah.
        He never misses coming twice a week.
        A very good brother thinking much of his sister.

NurseB: That's right!
        Nowadays, that kinda boys are not many.

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

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

Gendou: How is your school life?

Rei:    I have no problem.

Gendou: I see. Then OK.
- --
Hikari: Stand up. Bow. sit down.

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

Shinji: Kensuke, how come?

Teacher:And, today, Teacher Koike is absent.
        Therefore, the class of Modern Japanese is selfstudy.
        Today's person on duty is,

Touji:  New Yokosuka.
        Following battleships today as usual.
        I hear that something like "Myoukou" is in the port.


Touji:  Ah, Ye, Yes! 

Teacher:Take the materials to Ayanami's later.

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


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

Shigeru:Yes. Everything confirmed.
        It vanished.    
- --
Misato: Now I'm done for!

Makoto: The administration department and the inspection department above
        are uproarious. 
        The general affaire department is in panic.

Misato: And, the cause is?

Ritsuko:still under investigation.
        Only one clue is this image from a stationary satelite.
        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 concerned inside the range 89km 
        from the centre were perfectly vanished.

Ritsuko:Including thousands of people.

Shigeru:Presuming from the time-schedule, it should have been 
        the accident during the expreriment of installing
        S2 engine.

Maya:   The possible cause is, from insufficient quality of material
        to the mistake in the initial stage of the design.
        The total number of combination is 32,768.

Misato: There's a chance of sabotage.

Makoto: But, it was not an explosion, but a vanishment.

Ritsuko: Probably, swallowed by Direc's sea, just like Unit One
        at that time.

Misato: Then, also the S2 engine repared,,

Ritsuko: Vanished.
        And our dream also vanished.

Misato: It's because they forced to use something not quite understood.

Ritsuko: Eva is also such a thing.

- --
Misato: Then, how is the Unit three left going?

Ritsuko:We are about to accept that.
        U.S. administration does not seem to loose the first branch.

Misato: As for the Unit three and four, they insisted the right
        of the construction, and forced to build them.
        But, now, they force us to accept that.
        They push their luck.

Ritsuko:After that tragedy, anyone looses courage.

Misato: Then, how to do the booting test?
        using Rei's dummy?

Ritsuko:I will decide.
- --
Ritsuko:This is the prototype dummy plug.
        Rei's personality was transfered,
        though, the human mind, spirit is not digitalizable.
        This is nothing but a fake, something quasi,
        which imitates the pilot's thinking. Nothing but a machine.

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

Ritsuko:This still has some problems.

Gendou: Don't care.
        If Eva moves, it will be OK.

Ritsuko: Understood.

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

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

Gendou: Test pilot is?

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

Gendou: appointed to the fourth.

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

Gendou: Entirely left to you.


Gendou: Rei, it's over.

Rei:    Yes.

Gendou: Let's have a meal.

Rei:    Yes.

- --
Hikari: Stand up. Bow.

Students: Phew!

Touji:  WOW, it's time for meal.
        It's the biggest pleasure in school life.

Asuka:  Oh, You did not bring our lanch boxes?

Shinji: La, Last night, I was busy at homework, so no time to cook.

Asuka:  Because of that, you say I must stay without lunch!

Touji:  Oh, the quallel between wife and husband?

Students: (Laugh)

Shinji&Asuka:   NO WAY!

- --
Misato: What? you seem serious.

Ritsuko:In the booting test of the 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 yet received the report from Malduk Institute.

Ritsuko:The official documents will arrive tomorrow.

Misato: Well, Dr. Akagi, don't you have something secret to me, again?

Ritsuko:No, nothing.

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

Misato: Wow, Is that no one but this child?

Ritsuko:We had no choice.
        The candidates were collected in one place
        and are being protected.

Misato: It's hard to tell this.
        Asuka is OK. She is proud of pilotting Eva.
        Rei is exceptional.
        Nothing good if concerned with Eva things and our matters.
        It is Shinji that knows these matters best.
        I don't want him to be more painful.

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

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

- --
Students: Ciao!

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

Touji:  What are you talking about?

Hikari: Materials! "Take these." said the teacher.

Touji:  What's that? Class Rep. There must be another one on duty.

Hikari: Ayanami-san is absent today.

Touji:  Ayanami and me?
        Then, it's no other choice.
        But, I no can go to a woman's flat alone.

Hikari: Then I will be together with you.

Touji:  Shinji, go home together with me, I hope!

Hikari: Ah,

Hikari: (sigh)

- --
Shinji: Ayanami, let me in.

Touji:  No good to enter into a woman's flat without permission.

Shinji: No other choice.
        She won't read if we put them into this.
- -
Shinji: Let me in.

Touji:  Oh, is this a woman's room?
        Nothing charming.

Touji:  Oh, no, don't touch, or She will get angry.

Touji:  I am only settling.

Touji:  I don't help you.
        It's not a man's business.

Shinji: OK, but Misato-san dislikes such a guy.

Touji:  hmmmm, No, I don't mind.
        'Cose It's my policy.
- -
Touji:  Changed a lot.

Shinji: What?

Touji:  You, Shinji.

Shinji: hmm?

Touji:  When I saw you first, I truly thought you a disgusting guy.
        You ain't seem like a guy who does something for the sake of 
        other people.
        Anyhow, It's sort of you are reserved.

Shinji: Ah?

Touji:  We are disturbing you.

Rei:    What?

Touji:  Those are the piled materials.

Shinji: Sorry, I settled on my own accord.
        I touched nothing but rubbish.

Rei:    Th..Thank you.

- --
Touji:  Well, It's true that Eva pilots are all strange guys.

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

- ---B PART---
Kouzou: Town, is a paradise that humans made.

Gendou: Driven out from the paradise,
        Fleeing to the world on the earth nearby death were human beings.
        Made by those weakest living things, made by the sapience 
        aquired because of that weakness, was a paradise of our own.

Kouzou: To protect from the fear of death,
        to satisfy ourselves with joy,
        made is a paradise...
        This town is indeed one.
        Equipped with weapons to protect ourselves, is this town.

Gendou: The town for those cawardly people fleeing from 
        the world outside with full of enemies.

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

Kouzou: How are you going to report to the committee on the accident
        of Unit four.

Gendou: The same as the fact, the cause is unknown.

Kouzou: Anyhow, it was a big damage, this time.

Gendou: I don't care about the unit four and the second branch.
        We lost the sample of S2 engine, while have data remaining in
        Germany. Unit one and this installation are enough.

Kouzou: But the committee is in panic.

Gendou: Natural because it's an unscheduled accident.

Kouzou: Seele must be busy at revising the schedule-table.

Gendou: Incidents missed in The Dead Sea Scroll may happen.
        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 at Third engineering Section, Dr. Nishizawa,
        Connect to the Second development section immedeately.

Ryouji: Although the intercept system here will be finally complete,
        no celebration party is scheduled.
        NERV is a very strict system.

Maya:   Because Commander Ikari is such a man.

Ryouji: How about you?

Maya:   Are you OK with this, Kaji-san?
        I will tell this to Katsuragi-san and Senior Akagi.
Ryouji: Before you say, I cover your mouth.

Misato: Your business is going on?

Ryouji: Oh, well, normally.

Maya:   I have a job to do. Excuse me.
- -
Misato: Although I don't say anything about your private life,
        I beg you not to seduce young girls here in this emergent

Ryouji: It is not your business to administrate it.
        And, is it OK, if it is you, Katsuragi.

Misato: It depends on your answer you are about to say.
        You must know the secrets of Malduk Institute and ADAM 

Ryouji: What?

Misato: No use pretending to be ignorant.

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

Misato: I don't care a bit what people say about me.
        I am not reserved at the moment.
        Timely the fourth children was found.
        What is the hidden reason for that?

Ryouji: I tell you one thing.

Ryouji: Malduk Institute does not exist.
        It's nothing but NERV that is pulling the strings.

Misato: Nothing but NERV?
        Commander Ikari?

Ryouji: Code Seven O Seven. Investigate it.

Misato: Seven O 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, thanx.

Misato: See you next.

Ryouji: hmm.

Ryouji: How about having a cup of tea with me.

Shinji: Me,  male.

- --
Shinji: I thought Kaji-san be more serious.

Ryouji: You dare say such a word to someone reliable, Shinji-kun.

Shinji: Oh, sorry.

Ryouji: Oh, I am sorry too.
        I don't mean to say something unpleasant.
        Oh, I show you one thing good.

- --
Shinji: Water melon is this?

Ryouji: Don't you think it's cute?
        This is my hobby.
        Keep this secret to others.
        Making something, or bring something up is nice!
        We see and learn many things through that.
        Also pleasure.

Shinji: Also something painful.

Ryouji: Do you dislike something painful?

Shinji: I don't like.

Ryouji: Did you find some pleasure.

Ryouji: That's nice.
        But, the one knowing many pains is more kind to others.
        That's different from weekness.

Ryouji: Hello, Hello, 

Ryouji: From Katsuragi. Syncro-test will be held 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.
        Level3 Data deleted.
        Others are saved to Melchior.

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

Misato: What does that mean?

Ritsuko:I can say nothing.
        But, I guess something happened in the last accident,
        something mental.

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

Ritsuko:But, the person onself will be officially notified tomorrow.

Misato: hmmm.

- --
Hikari: Stand up, Attention, Bow.

Touji:  Phew, Meal Meal!

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

Touji:  What's that?

Kensuke: Did you do something?

Touji:  No, nothing I remember.

- --
Touji:  Suzuhara Touji is entering.

Ritsuko:You are Suzuhara Touji-kun.

- --
Shinji: How is your excursion to New-Yokosuka, yesterday.

Kensuke:Absolutely Nice!
        By the way, I obtained some information slightly worrying.

- -
Shinji: Eva Unit Three?

        The guy under construction in the states.

Shinji: No idea.

Kensuke: I know why you must keep secret, but
        please tell me.

Shinji: I've never heard of that.

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

Shinji: I don't know.

Kensuke: The pilot has not yet been appointed?

Shinji: I've no idea about that.

Kensuke: She could let me pilot that, Misato-san.
        Hey, Shinji, please ask that.
        I really wish to get on Eva.

Shinji: Really I don't know.

Kensuke: Then the story that Unit Four was lost?

Shinji: What is that?

Kensuke:Don't you really know that?
        The second branch was blown down.
        My daddy's section was in panic.

Shinji: Really?

Kensuke: Presumably.

Shinji: I've never heard anything from Misato-san.

        The pilot at the end of system has nothing to do with that.
        If she does not tell you, you need not to know that.
        Sorry for my asking strange questions.
        hmm, Anyhow, Touji guy has not yet been back.

- --
Teacher: We, human beings survived the hell called the Second Impact,
        and stood up after that.
        Currently, the children are decreasing, year by year.

Hikari: Oh,,

Touji:  Sorry for late.

Teacher:I've heard of the story. Sit down on the seat.
        Well, those young generations who are torchbearers of
        the future are...

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

Shinji: Touji is?

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

Hikari: Suzuhara.

Touji:  Ah?

Hikari: You are on duty.
        You must align desks, and write the dayly record.

Touji:  Me, not yet had lunch.
        When finish, I will do.

Hikari: Suzuhara's lunch is always the lunch box at the school shop.

Touji:  It's nobody that cooks for me.

Hikari: Suzuhara,,, -kun.

Touji:  hm?

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

Touji:  It's a toil for you.

Hikari: So, I am quite good at cooking, though you might not imagin so.

Touji:  hmm.

Hikari: So, I always waste the materials for lunch box.

Touji:  You are wasting.

Hikari: Oh!

Touji:  For the leftover disposal, I will help you at any amount.

Hikari: Oh, Yeah,
        Please help me.

Ryouji: Oh, you Asuka?
        Sorry, I am very busy now.

Asuka:  hmmm, but You have a time to see Misato.

Ryouji: Oh!

Asuka:  Wow, this is our syncro-data.
        Oh, four persons?
