*** A lot of people hate hearing recorded playback of their own voice. It wouldn't sound strange to us as the audience, but imagine you're hearing multiple recordings of your voice playing at once. That would be utterly ''maddening''.

* Remember that cute dog that was on an off-screen TV giving one-bark answers to mathematical problems that equal [[{{Stealth Pun}} "wan"]]? Well, let's hope that dog and all other beings with a degree of sentience are [[spoiler:affected by the global anti-AT field in the same way humans are, else they'll likely either be trapped with no way of feeding themselves, die from the destruction, or die slowly from long-term starvation!]]

* Many, many fans wonder why ''Yui'' would bring Shinji, a four-year-old, into the lab with her when she was going to perform the ill-fated Contact Experiment. Well. Gendo's response was to abandon the boy at the [=NERV=] train station, ''and that's with witnesses around.'' Fuyutsuky had to take Shinji to meet "Sensei." What do you suppose would have happened to the boy if Gendo came home from [=NERV=] after Yui "died" and found Shinji, deciding that he wanted nothing to do with the boy, or anything that reminded him of his wife, like pictures of her, which he openly admits destroying? Perhaps Yui knew that and wanted witnesses around for precisely that reason?

** Unfortuantely, the English dub completely ruined this scene by only using Asuka's VA for this scene. So instead of Asuka being assaulted by imitations of herself, it's just her repeating the same few lines over and over and breaking down because... she doesn't like the sound of her own voice?

* During the sequence where Arael conjures multiple Asukas while probing Asuka's memories, each Asuka is voiced by a different actress, to show that what Arael's conjurations are saying are both bizarre and unsettlingly wrong. What brings this into fridge brilliance is that each successive voice actress is actually trying to imitate Asuka's VA's style of speech, almost as if Arael is trying to make his conjurations as close to the real thing as he can.

* Now for the allegations about Shamshel and Leliel: note their shapes and manner of death. Shamshel is, let's be honest here, [[FreudWasRight a giant penis]], and dies when Shinji, another male, stabs him in the Core (i.e. castrates him). Leliel is somewhat more subtle in shape, more blatant in death: she is a black hole in the ground, ending at a mostly zebra-striped ball in the sky, i.e. a womb. She dies when Shinji, here a child, [[{{Gorn}} rips his way out of her in a horrifying parody of c-section.]] Again, ''he'' is the Angel of Day, ''she'' is the Angel of Night. Their forms and manner of death are complementary, something most people miss because of the episode gap, which only exists because Israfel couldn't resist the ShoutOut.

* The entry plug/Eva relationship: once you figure out that [[spoiler: Eva-01 contain Yui's soul]], it's hard to avoid the idea that, by piloting an Eva, Shinji is living out a giant [[FreudWasRight Oedipal metaphor]]. This becomes even more obvious when, during his introspective experiences, Shinji decides that he pilots an Eva because only piloting makes him feel needed.
