Vater wohnen.

Brüder, überm Sternenzelt
muss ein lieber Vater wohnen
Ihr stürzt nieder, Millionen?

UrsusArctos: This scene is famous (or infamous) as one of the longest held frames in all of anime, but it is an instance of technique being executed devastatingly well. You feel the conflict in Shinji's mind about whether to kill Kaworu or let him live. The second draft had Kaworu rush towards "Adam" in what may have been a deliberate attempt to goad Shinji into squishing him. But having Kaworu calmly await his fate as Shinji makes up his mind is far more powerful.
