Haymitch Abernarthy: They're not happy with you.
Katniss Everdeen: Why? Because I didn't die?
Haymitch Abernarthy: Because you showed them up.
Katniss Everdeen: Well, I'm sorry it didn't go the way they planned. I'm not very happy with them either.
Haymitch Abernarthy: Katniss! This is serious. Not just for you. They don't take these things lightly. When they ask, you say you couldn't help yourself. You were so in love with this boy that the thought of not being with him was unthinkable. You'd rather die than not be with him. You understand?
(Katniss and Peeta are the only one's left...)
Seneca Crane (Announcement): Attention. Attention, Tributes. There has been a slight rule change. The previous revision, allowing for two Victors from the same district, has been revoked. Only one Victor may be crowned. Good luck. And may the odds be ever in your favor.
(Cato is holding Peeta in headlock...)
Cato (to Katniss): Go on. Shoot. Then we both go down and you'd win. Go on. I'm dead anyway. I always was, right? I didn't know that till now. How is that? Is that what they want? Huh? I could still do this. I could still do this. One more kill. It's the only thing I know how to do. Bring pride to my district. Not that it matters.
President Snow: So you like an underdog?
Seneca Crane: Everyone likes an underdog.
President Snow: I don't. Have you been out there? 10? 11? 12?
Seneca Crane: Not personally. No.
President Snow: Well, I have. There are lots of underdogs. Lots of coal, too. Grow crops, minerals, things we need. There are lots of underdogs. And I think if you could see them, you would not root for them either. I like you. Be careful.
Haymitch Abernarthy: He did you a favor.
Katniss Everdeen: He made me look weak.
Haymitch Abernarthy: He made you look desirable, which in your case, can't hurt, sweetheart.
Cinna: He's right, Katniss.
Haymitch Abernarthy: Of course I'm right. Now, I can sell the star-crossed lovers from District 12...
Katniss Everdeen: We are not star-crossed lovers.
Haymitch Abernarthy: It's a television show!

In a dystopian future, the totalitarian nation of Panem is divided into 12 districts and the Capitol. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal retribution for a past rebellion, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors while the citizens of Panem are required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives. (IMDb)
