Shinji Ikari: Nobody understands me.
Rei Ayanami: You never understood anything.
Shinji Ikari: I thought this was supposed to be a world without pain, and without uncertainty.
Rei Ayanami: That's because you thought that everyone else felt the same as you do.
Shinji Ikari: You betrayed me! You betrayed my feelings!
Rei Ayanami: You misunderstood from the very beginning. You just believed what you wanted to believe.
Shinji Ikari: Nobody wants me. So they can all just die.
Rei Ayanami: Then what is your hand for?
Shinji Ikari: Nobody cares whether or not I exist. Nothing ever changes. So they can all just die.
Rei Ayanami: Then tell me; what is your heart for?
Shinji Ikari: It would be better if I never existed... I should just die, too.
Rei Ayanami: Then why are you here?
Shinji Ikari: I-is it okay for me to be here?
