In Episode 18, automatically controlled Unit One, in which Shinji was,
destroyed Unit Three and almost killed Touji (Shinji's classmate)
Evangelion Episode 19

        Avant Title

Maya:     The interlocking circuit has been cut.

Kouzou:   How about the ejection signal?

Maya:     It's locked from the plug side.
          Doesn't get received.

Makoto:   But Shinji-kun, if we hadn't done that,
          you'd have been done for!
Shinji:   That's not my concern.

Makoto:   But that also is a fact.

Shinji:   Don't make me more angry by saying such things!
          185 seconds are left to Unit One.
                  This is enough for destroying at least half of the Headquarters.

Shigeru:  He, in his current condition, would do it.

Maya:     Shinji-kun, listen to us.
          Without Commander Ikari's judgment,
          everyone could have been killed.

Shinji:   I'm saying that's not my concern!
          My father ... that man was going to kill Touji,
          by these hands of mine.

         Episode: 19

         Battle of a Man

Shinji:   Father, you are there, aren't you?
          Say something; answer me!

Gendou:   Raise the LCL pressure to the limit.

Maya:     Huh!?

Gendou:   There is no time to spare for an impossible child.
Shinji:   I still have a direct connect....
          ug, ghuahah, ahg,
          darn, darn, d, darn...
Male voice 1: The dissolving process of the right breast has been completed.

Female voice: We'll start the cleansing of the body fluids from
              three-O on schedule.

Male voice 2: The sixth part is going to be processed by heat.
              The operators in the area, evacuate now.

Ritsuko:  Are you OK already?

Misato:   There is no problem in so far as I can work.
          I just can't be off in this state of emergency.
          What happened to Shinji-kun?

Ritsuko:  I heard that they cut the emergency hatch open 
          with a laser cutter, and he has been removed by force.

Misato:   I got really told on by this case...

Asuka:    It may be all up with him.
          That idiot won't get by, I guess.

Rei:      How's Ikari-kun?

Asuka:    He hasn't been injured, so he'll come around soon.
          He'd be dreaming now.

Rei:      Dream?

Asuka:    Yeah, haven't you dreamt?

Touji:    Shinji,
          why is Shinji lying on the bed by me?
          I wonder where I am.
          Is it my sister's hospital?

-- Touji's "dream" --

Touji:    Oh my, aren't they Shinji and Ayanami?

Rei:      Shinji-kun, why did you do that?

Shinji:   I couldn't forgive my father, who betrayed me.
          Though finally I could have a nice talk with him,
          My father doesn't understand my feeling at all.

Rei:      Did you try to understand ... your father's feeling?

Shinji:   I did.

Rei:      Why don't you try?

Shinji:   I said "I did"!

Rei:      You run away from disagreeable things like that.

Shinji:   Isn't it all right?
          What's wrong with running away from disagreeable things?

Touji:    What are they arguing, those two...?

-- back to the reality --

Nurse:    You have a special permission to visit him only for
          five minutes.

Hikari:   Yes ma'am, thank you very much.

Touji:    Oh my, the Class Rep., ain't you?

Hikari:   Suzuhara, are you OK?

Touji:    Looks like I'm alive.
          Somehow I felt Shinji was here, but I wonder if it was a dream.

Hikari:   I heard Ikari-kun had left the hospital yesterday.
          You were sleeping for three days, Suzuhara.

Touji:    Was I?  So long as three days?
          Class Rep, you ...

Hikari:   Ugh, I came here as the Class Rep, by the official duty.
          It's nothing but that.

Touji:    Ah, I know.

Hikari:   (No, you don't.)

Touji:    I apologize...  that I couldn't eat the lunch.

Hikari:   Never mind ... such a matter.
          But I'm sorry.
          They say I can't let you eat a lunch here.

Touji:    Class Rep.

Hikari:   What?

Touji:    Can I ask you one favor?

Hikari:   Uh huh.

Touji:    Why don't you tell my sister that I've got nothing serious?

Hikari:   Uh huh.

NERV worker: Get out, Mr. Shinji Ikari.
             General Commander will be seeing you.
Gendou:   Disobeying orders.  Private occupation of EVA.
          Crude intimidation.  These are all criminal acts.
          Do you have anything you want to claim?

Shinji:   Yes, I don't want to pilot EVA any more.
          I don't want to stay here either.

Gendou:   Well then, get out.

Shinji:   I will.  I'll return where the Teacher is.

Gendou:   Do you run again?
          You disappointed me.
          I assume we won't see again.

Shinji:   I intend we won't.

Gendou:   It's me.
          The Third Child-REN is to be obliterated.
          Set Rei as the basis for the Unit One pilot and
          the dummy plug as backup.

Kensuke:  Are you Shinji listening?
          Is it true that you are going out of here?
          It's true, isn't it?
          But why?
          Why you run now?
          I've been admiring you.
          I envied you.  You are different from us.
          Darn, while even Touji can pilot EVA, I...

Female voice: This line has been monitored.
              For the security reasons, we have terminated the call.
              Thank you for your cooperation.
Shinji:   I assume Asuka won't come, being speechless.

Misato:   No, she even didn't say 'hi' to you.

Shinji:   It's becoming to her.
          I'm relieved.

Misato:   It'll be hard to keep saying those pretty things.

Shinji:   That's your way of life, Misato-san.
          I can't follow that.

Misato:   I think you know, but there will be a fair amount of restrictions
          on your behavior.

Shinji:   I know.  Um....

Misato:   What?

Shinji:   Tell me just one thing;
          Why it's Touji...  the Fourth Child-REN...?

Misato:   The fourth level candidates are all your class mates.
          I learned that recently too.
          It was all contrived.

Shinji:   Everyone, everyone in the class...

Misato:   As for Suzuhara-kun's matter,
          it's not a mistake recovered by apologizing with any words.
          But Shinji-kun, to be honest, I was projecting my dream,
          hope and purpose upon you.
          I know it's been a load to you.
          But we, everyone at NERV, had no choice but to trust our 
          future to you.
          Just remember that, please.

Shinji:   It's a selfish cause, isn't it?

Misato:   I know that.
          I'll leave your pass-code up to the headquarters and your room
          as they are.

Shinji:   It's no use.
          Please do away with them.
          I won't pilot EVA any more.

Misato:   (He's speaking positively [in his own words].
           It's the first time to hear something like this.)
Announce: Right now, the emergency was announced around the Tokai region.
          The residents should evacuate to the designated shelter as soon 
          as possible.  To repeat.  Right now, ....

Display:  Government Exclusive Express R-13, Dept. 13:38, For Shin-Atsugi, 2

Shinji:   It's an Angel.




Operator: To all, the battle alert of the first kind.
          Prepare for the surface-to-air countering.

Kouzou:   The target status?

Shigeru:  Currently invading.
          The Komagatake defense line, broken through.
Operator: From First to Eighteenth Armors, damaged.

Makoto:   It's got special armors as many as eighteen in an instant!

Misato:   We can't make it for the ground level countering by EVA.

Misato:   Post Unit Two in the Geofront,
          on the rim of the Headquarters facilities.
          Let Asuka snipe the target at the instant it invades into the
          The Unit Zero status?

Maya:     It's been posted at the AT field neutral zone.

Ritsuko:  The left arm hasn't been regenerated.

Misato:   Then, can't be engaged...

Gendou:   Put Rei out on Unit One.

Misato:   Hmm?

Gendou:   Prepare a dummy plug as backup.

Misato:   Yes sir.
????:     Start the entry.

Maya:     LCL injected.

Ritsuko:  Start the A10 nerve connection.

Rei:      Ug!
          (It doesn't make it, any more.)
Operator: Pulses reverse.

Maya:     Unit One is refusing the nerve connection.

Ritsuko:  I cannot believe that.

Kouzou:   Ikari...

Gendou:   Yes, it's refusing me.

Gendou:   Stop the start-up.
          Let Rei make a sortie on Unit Zero.
          Restart Unit One by the dummy plug.

Misato:   But Unit Zero is....

Rei:      I don't mind.  I go.

Misato:   Rei!?
Rei:      Even if I die, there is a substitute.
Shinji:    (I decided not to pilot any more...)

A Man:     Hey you, what are you doing?
           Evacuate to the shelter quickly.
Shigeru:  It's no good.
          One more hit will break through all the armors.

Misato:   I trust on you, Asuka.
Asuka:    Here it comes.
          Even though someone like Shinji is absent,
          that's just a cinch for me alone.

Asuka:    This damn ....!

Asuka:    Shit, Next!

Asuka:    The AT field must have been neutralized.
          Why it doesn't get done for?

Asuka:    Here I am, who can't lose any more!

Asuka:    Huh?  No kidding!

Asuka:    Kugh, huhg...
          This damn SOB!
Misato:   Asuka!
          Cut all the nerve connection.  Fast!
Asuka:    Huh!?.

-- flashback --
Asuka: Evacuation exercise?
        Are you idiot?
        That's nothing to do with us pilots.

Shinji:   Huhhgh!

Announce: Direct hit to the eighth sector.

Shinji:   Huuhh.

Announce: Abandon the sixth shelter.
          Survivors, rush to the third shelter!

Shigeru:  Unit Two wrecked.  Not able to combat.

Misato:   How's Asuka?
Makoto:   She's safe ... alive!

Asuka:    Kwuh, hh,..hhg, .... SOB...
Shigeru:  The Angel starts moving.
Misato:   The Unit One status?
Female operator:  Dummy plug loading completed.

Female operator:  The probe insertion completed.
Ritsuko:  Start the contact.

Maya:     Roger.

Ritsuko:  What is it?

Maya:     Pulses disappear.
          It refuses the dummy.
          It failed.  EVA Unit One doesn't start up.  

Ritsuko:  The dummy, Rei...

Kouzou:   .. is refused.

Gendou:   Fuyuzuki, I leave you here for a while.

A Man:    The injured are to the sixth block.

A Man:    Let the non-injured hurry to the third center! 

A Man:    This way!
A Man:    Fast!
A Man:    Hurry up!
A Man:    Fast!
A Man:    Hey you!  What are you doing?  Do you want to die?
Shinji:   Asuka...
Ryouji:   Isn't it Shinji-kun?
Shinji:   Kaji-san.
          What are you doing in the place like this?

Ryouji:   Those are my lines.  What are you doing, Shinji-kun? 

Shinji:   I, I won't pilot EVA any more.  Since I decided so...

Ryouji:   Uh-huh?
          As my part-time job has gone public,
          I lost a position in the battle shift.
          Since then, I'm watering here.

Shinji:   In such a time?

Ryouji:   It's because of such a time.
          Though I like to be in Katusragi's breasts,
          I'd like to be here when I die.

Shinji:   Die?

Ryouji:   Right.
          They say that when an Angel comes into contact with Adam,
          which is sleeping underground here, all humans will be
          terminated, which will be the Third Impact.
          It can be stopped only by Evangelion, which is as powerful as

Shinji:   Ayanami!  Even without a rifle!
Rei:      Kuhg!
Ritsuko:  Wants blow herself away?

Gendou:   Rei!
Rei:      AT field, full power!
Shinji:   Ugh, guhh.
Makoto:   Huh, Unit Zero!
Misato:   Rei!
Ritsuko:  What did she dare....?
Shinji:   Hh, Huhh...

Ryouji:   Shinji-kun, I can do nothing but water here.
          But for you, I bet there is the thing which YOU can do and
          only you can do.
          Nobody forces you.
          Think by yourself and decide by yourself ...
          what you should do now.
          Well, I wish you no regret.

Male operator: Direct hit to the third basement.

Makoto:   Final armor plate fused.

Misato:   It's no good.  The main shaft is exposed.

Ritsuko:  Isn't Unit One ready yet?

Male operator: Dummy plug refused.
Male operator: It failed.  No response.

Gendou:   Carry on.  Once more, do it again from one-O-eight.

Shinji:   Let me pilot!
          Let me, me, pilot this, Unit One!

Gendou:   Why are you here?

Shinji:   Ngh, I, I am the pilot of Evangelion Unit One, Ikari Shinji!
Shigeru:  The target intruded into the main shaft!
          It's descending.

Misato:   What is its destination?

Makoto:   Directly advancing to the Central Dogma.

Misato:   It's coming here.
          All personnel to be evacuated.  Fast!

Makoto:   All personnel to be evacuated.
          To repeat; all personnel to be evacuated.

Misato:   Sh**t. (sp?)
Misato:   EVA Unit One!  Shinji-kun.

Shinji:   Misato-san!

Misato:   No. 5, launch it immediately!

Shinji:   The power run out!
Maya:     It's the Unit One operation limit.
          The backup doesn't work either.

Misato:   Shinji-kun.
Misato:   Shinji-kun!
Shinji:   Move, move, move.  Move, please move.
          There is no use if it doesn't move now!
Misato:   That is ...?
Shinji:   Move, move, move,
          move, move, move, move, move, move, move,
          move, move, please move!
          If it doesn't move now, if I don't do it now,
          everyone's going to die!
          I can't stand such a thing any more.
          So, please move!
Maya:     E, Eva restarted.
Misato:   Awesome....

Maya:     Impossible, I cannot believe it.
          The synchro-rate of Unit One is over 400 %.

Ritsuko:  It means *she* has been awakened.
Misato:   It's devouring the Angel.
Ritsuko:  Is it that she's taking the S2 organ into herself?
-                                 an?
Maya:     Ugh!
Ritsuko:  The binding ...

Makoto:   Thebinding?

Ritsuko:  Yes, it's not an armor.
          It's the restrainer for us to control EVA's intrinsic power.
          The spell is now being dissolved by her own power.
          For us, it's impossible to stop EVA any more.
Ryouji:   The awakening and liberation of Unit One.
          Seele wouldn't overlook it.
          Is this also in your scenario, Commander Ikari?

Kouzou:   It's begun, hasn't it?

Gendou:   Yes, everything begins now.

---EVA Episode 19: END-----------------------------------------------------

Mankind was saved by the awakening of EVA.
But Shinji has been taken into Unit One,
and physically fused with it.
Salvaging him fails.
What crying Misato saw is ...
