The reason I ask is because, despite everyone assuming that Mari's referring to the old Rei here, Rei Q's original is in fact Yui. Sure, Mari could be out of the loop in regards to the whole Yui clone business, but that doesn't seem too likely. A lot of dirt about Nerv, including the clones, had to have been found out by the people who would later go on to form Wille during the timeskip. And even if not every Wille member is privy to that knowledge, Mari has always seemed to have an air about her that suggests that she knows more about what's going on at any given moment than the average character.
Geez, I never even thought of that
I mean... from what we have seen, Mari never met Rei.
