[first lines]
Gale Hawthorne: [as Katniss almost shoots him] Whoa, whoa. Easy. Saw some turkeys on the way here. Crossed right in front of me like I wasn't even there.

Gale Hawthorne: Yeah, and it's gonna be you.

Gale Hawthorne: We could do it, you know. Take off, live in the woods. What we do anyway.
Katniss Everdeen: They'd catch us.
Gale Hawthorne: Well, maybe not.
Katniss Everdeen: Cut out our tongues or worse. We wouldn't make it five miles.

Gale Hawthorne: Listen to me. You're stronger than they are. You are. Get to a bow.
Katniss Everdeen: They may not have one...
Gale Hawthorne: They will if you show 'em how good you are. They just want a good show. That's all they want. If they don't have a bow, then you make one, okay? You know how to hunt.
Katniss Everdeen: Animals.
Gale Hawthorne: It's no different, Katniss.

Katniss Everdeen: How many times is your name in today?
Gale Hawthorne: Forty-two. Guess the odds aren't exactly in my favor.

Gale Hawthorne: What if they did? What if we did?
Katniss Everdeen: Won't happen.
Gale Hawthorne: You root for your favorite, you cry when they get killed. It's sick.
Katniss Everdeen: Gale.
Gale Hawthorne: No one watches and they don't have a game. It's as simple as that. What?
Katniss Everdeen: Nothing.
Gale Hawthorne: Fine. Laugh at me.
Katniss Everdeen: I'm not laughing at you!

[from trailer]

Gale Hawthorne: 'Cause I'm in pain... That's the only way I can get your attention.

[while attempting to hunt a deer]
Katniss Everdeen: He's not even afraid of us.
Gale Hawthorne: It's 'cause they've never been hunted before. It's almost not fair.
