Asuka: So I'll make you a deal, Third Child. If you, at some point in the future, let me down utterly, completely and catastrophically like you think you might, I forgive you in advance for it... providing that you don't mope around like an idiot for the rest of your life but find a way, any way, to make it right, and you don't stop trying until you do. Fair enough?
Shinji: Asuka's mad at me. All's right with the world.
- Asuka and Shinji attending the school's dance.
- Asuka sleeping together with Shinji to get rid of her nightmares, followed later by Asuka sleeping together with Shinji to get rid of Shinji's nightmares.
- Shinji preparing to sleep in Misato's flat and realising how much he misses Asuka, sadly reflecting that he would have to wait four months for her arrival. Even the Asuka voice he suddenly hears in his mind telling him not to mope around and go to sleep because he has too much work to do sounds affectionate and concerned, hinting at their later relationship.
