Thumbnail Theatre: Neon Genesis Evangelion Part 24

Asuka: Look mommy! I grew up to be a model for Blood II ads!

Ritsuko:: Look mommy! I grew up to be a scene from a women-in-prison movie!

Shinji: It sure is getting depressing around here, what with Asuka going nuts, Misato depressed about Kaji, Rei being my mother, Ritsuko in jail and Tokyo-3 being atomised.

Kaworu: If this were a Disney cartoon, this would be a good time for a show-stopping production number. Instead I'll just hum Ode To Joy.

Shinji: Who are you?

Kaworu: Someone who loves you.

Shinji: Leia!

Kaworu: Uh... no. Kaworu Nagisa, the Fifth Child. My name has many layers of meaning in Japanese, but since this is the English version we'll have to settle for struggling to pronounce my name right.

Misato: Wow, the Fifth Child is magically synchro-licious! What's the dilly-o, Ritsuko?

Ritsuko:: Let's just say this show is becoming more and more like "Touched By An Angel" every day.

Kaworu: Let's take a bath and have a sleepover, Shinji. That way no matter what happens to the world in the future, we will be immortalized in endless yaoi fanfics for this one night.

Shinji: Oh, OK. Sounds good. What's "yaoi"?

Kaworu: It's where I gaze at you and say I love you. Like this: I love you.

SEELE: Crank up the Beethoven, it's time to kick some butt.

Unit-02: Let's-a go!

Misato: That symphony! It must be an Angel descending into Dogma! Shinji, go kick the Angel's butt.

Shinji: Kaworu's an Angel? Kaworu said he loved me, and now he wants to destroy humanity? Two-timer! DIIIIEEEE!

Tabris: I used to love you, but I have to kill you.

Rei: Don't mind me, I'm just generating an AT Field and stuff.

Tabris: Holy smokes! This isn't Adam, it's a totally different religious symbol altogether! We've been snookered for the past 23 episodes! What a scam!

Shinji: Kaworu, you suck! Give me one good reason I shouldn't kill you.

Kaworu: No, no, you should kill me. Because I love you.

Shinji: Oh no, now I feel all confused.

Misato: OK, Shinji, so you just killed the only person who has ever expressed love for you. No biggie - I'm sure you'll get over it sooner or later.

Shinji: Hey, I'm always up for a new excuse to mope and feel sorry for myself.
