RITSUKO: –––Shinji, have you ever fallen in love?
SHINJI: Not yet…
RITSUKO: In Misato's heart, Kaji was a physically a part of her. Now that he's gone, it's finally hit her. But, some times those painful feelings become so overwhelming, it becomes unbearable. And on those nights, sometimes we need to rely on the power of alcohol just a bit.
A special train pulls into the platform.
SHINJI: Will I understand that sort of thing better once I've fallen in love?
RITSUKO: When you understand it, it means you've become an adult. –––Alright. The Fifth Child is here.
