Quotes / It's Not You, It's Me

Go To


Gwen: I'm sorry, George.
George: I don't understand, things were going so great. What happened? Something must have happened.
Gwen: It's not you, it's me.
George: You're giving me the "it's not you, it's me" routine? I invented "it's not you, it's me"! Nobody tells me it's them not me; if it's anybody, it's me!
Gwen: All right, George, it's you.
George: You're damn right it's me!

You're beautiful, that's for sure;
You'll never ever fade,
You're lovely- but it's not for sure
That
I won't ever change...
— "I'm Like A Bird", Nelly Furtado

Shinji:"So you do care about me, huh?"
Asuka:"Yeah, [...] That's why I was pushing you away, so I wouldn't hurt you anymore, so you could be happy again."
Shinji:"That has to be the stupidest thing I ever heard"
Scar Tissue, chapter 17

Shinji:"Asuka...please forgive me..." (turning his face away from her:) "I couldn't...protect you."
Asuka (with a comforting look on her face):"Tsss, it's over now... don't wor—"
Shinji (interrupting her):"I'm not fit to be your boyfriend if I can't assure your safety! And therefore...I'm not fit to be Teri's father. So, please, Asuka, leave this room..."
The Child of Love, chapter 7

Asuka: Please, leave. Just leave. I don't want to hurt you anymore.
Shinji: I'm… not going to leave.
Asuka: Then I'm just going to keep kicking you.
Shinji: I am not going to leave! I don't care how much you hurt me. Break every bone in my body if it makes you happy, but I am not going to leave you!
Asuka: But...
Shinji: Why can't you understand? I want to be there when you need me!
Asuka: I don't need you! I don't want to need you!
Shinji: But I need you! And I want to be with you forever!
Asuka: You … what? Why?
Shinji: You told me that if I couldn't live for myself, then … I should live for those around me. I … I can't live for myself, Asuka. So I'll live for someone else instead. I'll live for you.
