Now, when I was a baby, Momma named me after the great Angel War hero, First Boy Shinji Ikari… She said she'd been like a momma to him, too. And, what he did was, he started up this thing called the Third Impact, where he almost killed the planet just so he could save this one girl. Apparently this girl, who was dead to begin with, just stayed dead, and now the place where Momma used to work is a big red desert where nobody can live except a couple of crazy people. Anyway, that’s how I got my name. Shinji Katsuragi. Momma said that the Shinji part was to remind me that sometimes we all do things that, well, just don’t make no sense.
Any which way, Paul, a terrible idea. I'm going to continue to hope for a daughter so she can be automatically spared the trauma of such a terrible name.
Ray's gonna Ray.
