HIKARI:“I'm sorry, Asuka. You always walk home with Ikari.”

ASUKA:“Forget it. The only reason I'm with Shinji is because of work.”




18 C071.jpg

071

ASUKA (OFF):“And I don't feel like seeing him today anyway.”




18 C072.jpg

072

ASUKA:“This is about Suzuhara, isn't it?”

HIKARI:“Yes. You could tell?”

ASUKA:“It's obvious. The three stooges are about the only ones who don't see it.”

HIKARI:“But Ikari seems naïve.”

ASUKA:“Actually, he's the most dense of them all.”

UrsusArctos: This entire conversation is a straight-up reference to the classic manga Oniisama-e... as detailed on the tributes page.


dzzthink: I find it funny that everyone in the class is aware of Hikari's crush aside from the three stooges.


UrsusArctos: "Not being aware someone has a crush on you while (almost) everyone else does" is a common romantic trope, although this probably goes to show how disconnected the three stooges are from the class social reality. Just as funny, Toji treats Asuka and Shinji as a couple, but by the time we reach End of Evangelion, whether or not he's right is an open question.

074

ASUKA (OFF):“And he's an idiot to boot. He doesn't know how to relate to people.”

HIKARI (OFF):“Really?”




18 C075.jpg

18 C076.jpg

076

HIKARI:“I think Suzuhara might like Miss Ayanami.”

UrsusArctos: She may be right. Toji did seem to lust after Rei in Episode 05 Cut 120 and it does put his facial expressions in Cut 054 in a new context if he's disappointed that Rei isn't interested in him.

ASUKA:“Suzuhara does?! Miss Perfect?!”

HIKARI:“They seemed to be getting along during lunch.”

ASUKA:“Don't worry, Hikari. There's no way.”




18 C078A.jpg

078A

ASUKA:“She's a million times denser than Shinji is about relating to people!”




18 C078B.jpg

078B

HIKARI:“Really?”




18 C079a.jpg

18 C079b.jpg

18 C079c.jpg

ASUKA:“Really!”

ASUKA:“Can I ask you one thing?”

HIKARI:“What?”

ASUKA:“What do you see in that hot-headed stooge?”

HIKARI:“His kindness...”

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“Ultimately, getting back together with you that time”




18 C086.jpg

086

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“was where all the mistakes began.”

MAN (TELEVISION):“How can you say that now?”




18 C087a.jpg

18 C087b.jpg

087

SHINJI:“Come to think of it...”

ASUKA:“Kaji sure spends a lot of time in the tub.”

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“I can still change my life. There are lots of pitfalls in life,”




18 C088a.jpg

18 C088b.jpg

088

SHINJI:“I wonder who's going to pilot Unit 03?”

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“but even if you fall in, you can just crawl your way out of it again.”

MAN (TELEVISION):“And I'm the pitfall?”




18 C089a.jpg

18 C089b.jpg

18 C089c.jpg

089

ASUKA:“You mean you haven't heard yet?”

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“I don't have to live in sorrow.”

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“But after despair, hope is always waiting for you.”




18 C090.jpg

090

SHINJI:“Who is it?”




18 C091a.jpg

18 C091b.jpg

091

MAN (TELEVISION):“And I'm the pronoun for your despair?”




18 C092a.jpg

18 C092b.jpg

18 C092c.jpg

092

ASUKA:“I don't know.”

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“Yes, the only reason I came back was so we could break up again.”




18 C093a.jpg

18 C093b.jpg

18 C093c.jpg

18 C093d.jpg

093

KAJI:“That was refreshing!”

MAN (TELEVISION):“This is too mean.”




18 C094.jpg

094

KAJI:“What? Are you two fighting again? You guys are hopeless.”

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“Now that I consider it, a man who sucks at kissing never works out!”

MAN (TELEVISION):“My kissing sucks?”

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“Not just your kissing!”

Mr. Tines: The commentary on Episode 16 is laid on thickly here.


UrsusArctos: You mean Episode 15, don't you? The one with the two kisses (one disgusting, the other disastrous)?



18 C095a.jpg

18 C095b.jpg

18 C095c.jpg

18 C095d.jpg

18 C095e.jpg

095

KAJI (OFF):“Are you two always like this when Katsuragi's gone?”

ASUKA:“No!”

ASUKA:“I get to spend the night with you, after all, so I'd love to be all happy and smiling. But I can't do it tonight. I just can't.”

MAN (TELEVISION):“Not just my kissing?!”

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“I knew it! Why did I repeat the same mistake?”

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“Yes, this mistake must be corrected!”




18 C096A.jpg

096A

WOMAN (TELEVISION):“I must start a new life free of regret!”




18 C096B.jpg

096B

KAJI:“I understand. Let's go to bed.”

MAN (TELEVISION):“Before you do that,”




18 C097.jpg

097

KAJI:“Going to bed early is the best thing for these situations.”

MAN (TELEVISION):“why don't you put your clothes on and make the bed?”




18 C098.jpg

18 C099a.jpg

18 C099b.jpg

099

SHINJI:“Are you asleep yet, Kaji?”

KAJI:“No, not yet.”

SHINJI:“What's my father like?”

Mr. Tines: Another all too brief male bonding time. Shinji would have benefited from being transferred to Kaji's care -- but that would have cut too deeply into his double-agent time.


UrsusArctos: Perhaps, but Kaji's repressed death-seeker tendencies might rub off onto Shinji.



18 C100.jpg

KAJI:“Well, that came out of nowhere. I thought you'd ask about Katsuragi.”

SHINJI:“Because it seems like you're always with my father.”




18 C101a.jpg

18 C101b.jpg

101

KAJI:“It's the vice Commander who's always with him. Have you been asking around about your father?”

SHINJI:“Because I haven't been around him much.”

KAJI:“So you don't really know him?”

SHINJI:“But I've learned a lot about him lately. About his work, about my mother, so...”




18 C102.jpg

102

KAJI:“You're wrong there. You only believe that you've learned.”




18 C103.jpg

103

KAJI (OFF):“People can't understand others completely. Who knows if you can even understand yourself? Understanding each other one hundred percent is impossible.”




18 C104a.jpg

18 C104b.jpg

104

KAJI:“Of course, that's why we spend so much time trying to understand ourselves and others. That's what makes life so interesting.”

SHINJI:“Is that also true for you and Miss Misato?”




18 C105.jpg

105

KAJI:“The word we use for "she" literally means "the woman far away". To us, women will always be on the distant shore. Basically, there's a river dividing men and women, deeper and wider than the ocean.”




18 C106.jpg

106

SHINJI:“I don't understand adults.”

dzzthink: As a follow-up to the watermelon scene, Kaji provides a great deal of wisdom. Perhaps this scene is foreshadowing something, or rather Kaji is warning Shinji about his father. Just when Shinji might finally begin developing an understanding of his father with their earlier interactions, there is a great amount of unknown that separates us from forming close relationships.


UrsusArctos: It might reveal Kaji's own failure or incapacity to understand women, and be an oblique admission of that failure. Kaji's small smile during this sequence seems...bitter? Insincere? Kaji talks about women being on "the other shore" but there is one character whose surname literally means "the shore" or "beach" and whose soul comes from an explicitly female being and who does connect with Shinji in a scene that visually evokes this...
