Bill McDonagh, BioShock

Misato declaring her friendship with Ritsuko is over, Neon Genesis Evangelion: Genocide

After all, if Shinji was right, Ritsuko, good ole Rits herself was fully aware of the ultimate goals of the Evangelion project.

MC: What happened to your friend?
Shingen: A battle. A cruel one. He lost almost everyone he cared about and came out of those fires a vengeful demon. I couldn't reach him. He broke off our friendship. And we haven't talked since.

And now we're not,
I wish you would tell me why?

"Superboy stomps back in, and he doesn't look pleased. Lex figured either he's going to get hit, or taken to jail, or both. But Blue Boy doesn't do either thing. He said that, since Lex saved his life once, he was going to give him a break and not take him in. He said that squared the debt between them. But he also said that he would never trust him again, that he could never see Lex as a friend again, and, believe it or not, that hurt Lex. Don't ask me or him why, but he said it did hurt."
Nasthalthia Luthor, Kara of Rokyn

Kara: I recognize that I made a mistake in hiding my identity from you for so long, but the past is the past, and I can't change it. Forgive me or not, that's your choice, just like it's your choice to work with Lex. I'm done blaming myself for your bad decisions.
