|A passage inside the ceiling city. Misato makes a phone call while Shinji stands alone.
Misato:“Like I said, I'll take care of Shinji-kun. I've already got permission from the brass… …And don't worry, it's not like I'm going to "put the moves" on a kid.”
Ritsuko (OFF - TEL):“Of course you're not! What the hell are you thinking? You're always like that. Honestly!”
Misato holds the receiver away.
Misato:“She could never take a joke.”
