Latest quotes added:

Peeta Mellark (to Katniss): I have no chance of winning! None! All right? It's true. Everybody knows it. You know what my mother said? She said District 12 might finally have a winner. But she wasn't talking about me. She was talking about you.

(Peeta smiles and waves at people welcoming them in Capitol...)

Haymitch Abernarthy (to Katniss): You better keep this knife. He knows what he's doing.

Haymitch Abernarthy (to Katniss): You really want to know how to stay alive? You get people to like you. Oh. Not what you were expecting? Well, when you're in the middle of The Games and you're starving or freezing, some water, a knife, or even some matches can mean the difference between life and death. And those things only come from sponsors. And to get sponsors, you have to make people like you. And right now, sweetheart, you're not off to a real good start.

President Snow: War. Terrible war. Widows, orphans, a motherless child. This was the uprising that rocked our land. Thirteen districts rebelled against the country that fed them, loved them, protected them. Brother turned on brother until nothing remained. And then came the peace, hard fought, sorely won. A people rose up from the ashes, and a new era was born. But freedom has a cost. And the traitors were defeated. We swore as a nation we would never know this treason again. And so it was decreed that each year the various districts of Panem would offer up, in tribute, one young man and woman to fight to the death in a pageant of honor, courage, and sacrifice. The lone Victor, bathed in riches, would serve as a reminder of our generosity and our forgiveness. This is how we remember our past. This is how we safeguard our future.

Katniss Everdeen: I'm never having kids.

Gale Hawthorne: I might, if I didn't live here.

Katniss Everdeen: But you do live here.
