* 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.

** Speaking of Cruel Angel's Thesis, if you freezeframe through the latter half of the opening, you will clearly see an image of Kaworu. Yes, you can see this even in the first episode. The guy was in the anime since the beginning.

*A lighter example, but in 2.0 Kaji takes the children to an aquarium to see what the oceans looked like before second impact. Unfortunately, this involves going through decontamination, which involves getting blasted with hot/cold air (whether it was hot or cold I'm not sure), washed silly with a high-pressure shower, and plunged into an icy tank of water...3 times! Now this sounds like torture...until you realize that in episode 13, Asuka states that she went through decontamination 17 times! If decontamination was anything like it was in 2.0, that means that Shinji, Asuka, and Rei must have nerves and lungs of steel.

** A catholic priest explained to you the difference between love and desire? [[{{Squick}} ...And how did this come up?]]
*** As someone who learned to hate the Church from going at a catholic high school, I can confirm it's not ''necessarily'' squicky because it's what they're supposed to do: love everybody equally and explain (and ''show'') people how to recognize it from desire and infatuations. The {{Squick}} comes out only when they don't understand (or don't care of) the difference between love and desire.
