Misato in front of Hyuga. They speak rather nonchalantly.
Hyuga:“The last time they gave us a fifteen year break. This time it's been only 3 weeks.”
Misato (OFF):“They never care about our convenience, do they?”
Mr. Tines: Three weeks, and Rei is still not being considered for combat duty? In fact, given that she was ahead of him in setting of for NERV, where has she gotten to?
Reichu: No idea. But regarding the former, recall that EVA-00 is still frozen in carboni— I mean, stuck in bakelite. Rei can only be useful if Shinji isn't. Those guys in the orange uniforms must really be slacking off.
OMF: This little chat between Hyuga and Misato exemplifies the generally informal atmosphere in the control center — at least when the icy region around Gendo is absent. The senior staff do all seem to be on good terms with one another, although, in Hyuga's case, chats with Misato have more subtle motives.
