‘Don’t say ‘I’m sorry’, or she’ll kill me. Don’t say ‘I’m sorry’, or she’ll kill me. Don’t say ‘I’m sorry’, or she’ll kill me.’
Shinji, A Crown Of Stars, chapter 25

Asuka: "You always apologize right away, but do you actually feel sorry?!"
Asuka: "It's like you apologize as a conditioned reflex to avoid being scolded!"
Shinji: "I'm sorry."
Asuka: "Exactly like that. You're just fundamentally too self-deprecating!"

Shinji: So what are your parents like?

Asuka: Why does everything have to take so long with you, Third Child?
Shinji: Sorry.
Asuka: Dammit, don't do that. It bothers me and you know it.
Shinji: Sorry
Asuka: You know, I'm starting to think you do it on purpose. Nobody could be so dense.
Misato: Asuka, stop picking on him. It's just his conditioned response, like a defense.

Asuka hissed her breath out from between her teeth. God, she hated people who apologized for everything, even when it wasn't their fault!
Once More with Feeling, chapter 10

Asuka:"Geez. Doesn't take much to please you!"
Asuka: "What are you apologizing for? You're such an idiot..."
Shinji: "Sorry."
She gave me the death glare, but gave up and simply lay down, closed her eyes and went back to her sunbathing.

Asuka:"I hate it when you do that, you know?"
Shinji: "Yeah..."
She shook her head, slowly bringing it closer to his.
Asuka: "That's the wrong line," she whispered. "You have to say 'I'm sorry'."
Shinji: "Oh?" He grinned, leaning forward to meet her halfway, already feeling her breath on his face. "I'm sorry."
Asuka: "Better..." She closed her eyes, just before their lips...
