Thumbnail Theatre: Neon Genesis Evangelion Part 04

Misato: Hey Shinji! ...hmm, he ran away. I wonder why on earth he would do a thing like that? Especially since he's always muttering "I mustn't run away" to himself.

Toji: Hi, I'm here to visit my new best friend Shinji.

Misato: I'm sorry, Shinji's not available to take your call. Please leave your name and message after the tone.

Misato: Shinji, you suck.

Walkman: (click)

Ritsuko: So why did Shinji run away?

Misato: Because of this flashback:

Shinji: Sorry I disobeyed you and beat the Angel anyway.

Misato: You suck.

Shinji: Meanwhile, it's amazing that in the midst of wandering aimlessly around Tokyo-3 I would run into Kensuke.

Kensuke: Hey Ikari, wanna join my fantasy war games?

Shinji: Hmm, he's an even bigger loser than me. I guess my life doesn't totally suck after all.

Kensuke: Hey, are these guys surrounding us NERV Agents?

Shinji: Oops, I spoke too soon.

Misato: So, now that you've run away and been forced back here despite your wishes, will you be a pilot again?

Shinji: I guess I don't have a choice.

Misato: Yes, you do. Don't let the door hit your butt on the way out.

Toji: Be sure to punch me before you go.

Misato: Hmm, I'd better see him off before he leaves forever. Oops, too late.

Shinji: ...

Misato: ...

Shinji: I guess I'll stay after all.

Misato: Glad to hear it, you spineless wimp.
