Katniss Everdeen: [to her baby] Did you have a nightmare? I have nightmares, too. Someday I'll explain it to you, why they came, why they won't ever go away, but I'll tell you how I survive it. I make a list in my head... of all the good things I've seen someone do. Every little thing I can remember. It's like a game. I do it over and over. Gets a little tedious after all these years, but... there are much worse games to play.
Finnick Odair: [Sardonically] Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the seventy-sixth Hunger Games.
Peeta Mellark: What do all those deaths mean? They mean that our lives were never ours. There was no real life because we didn't have any choice. Our lives belong to Snow and our deaths do, too. But if you kill him, Katniss, if you end all of this, all those deaths - they mean something.
Katniss Everdeen: We all have one enemy, and that's Snow! He corrupts everyone and everything! He turns the best of us against each other. Stop killing for him! Tonight, turn your weapons to the Capitol! Turn your weapons to Snow!
Johanna Mason: [On Peeta Mellark] We... we had adjoining cells in the Capitol. We're very familiar with each other's screams.
President Alma Coin: [spreads her arms] Welcome to the New Panem. Today, on the Avenue of the Tributes, all of Panem, a free Panem, will watch more than a mere spectacle. We are gathered to witness an historic moment of justice. Today, the greatest friend to the revolution will fire the shot to end all wars. May her arrow signify the end of tyranny and the beginning of a new era. Mockingjay, may your aim be as true as your heart is pure.
Peeta Mellark: Your favorite color is green. Is that real?
Katniss Everdeen: Yeah. That's real. Yours is orange. Not bright orange. Soft, like the sunset.
Peeta Mellark: Thank you.
Effie Trinket: [embracing Katniss] Promise me you'll find it.
Katniss Everdeen: Find what?
Effie Trinket: The life of a Victor.
Katniss Everdeen: I'm going to kill Snow. Nothing good is safe while he's alive. And I can't make another speech about it. No more cameras. No more propos. No more Games. He needs to see my eyes when I kill him.
Johanna Mason: Now you're talking.
President Alma Coin: [message appears onscreen] Good evening. For those of you who don't know me, please allow me to introduce myself. I am President Alma Coin, leader of the Rebellion. I have interrupted a broadcast from your President in which he attempted to defame a brave young woman. "A face picked from the masses," he called her.
President Snow: Plucked.
President Alma Coin: As if a leader, a true leader, could be anything else. I had the privilege of knowing a small-town girl from the Seam in District 12 who survived the Hunger Games and the Quarter Quell and rose up and turned a nation of slaves into an army! Dead or alive, Katniss Everdeen will remain the face of this revolution. She will not have died for nothing.
President Snow: I wanted to tell you how very sorry I am about your sister. So wasteful. So unnecessary. Anyone could see the game was over by that point. In fact I was just about issue an official surrender when they released those parachutes.
Katniss Everdeen: You released those parachutes.
President Snow: You really think I gave the order? We both know I'm not above killing children, but I'm not wasteful. I take life for specific reasons, and there was no reason for me to destroy a pen full of Capitol children. None at all.
[coughs up blood]
President Snow: I must concede, it was a masterful move on Coin's part. The idea that I was bombing our own helpless children to hold back the rebels. It turned the last of my guards against me. There was no resistance left inside the Capitol or the mansion. Do you know it aired live? There's a particular savvy in that, isn't there? I'm sure she wasn't gunning for your sister, but... these things happen in war. My failure was in being so slow to grasp Coin's plan. She let the Capitol and the Districts destroy one another, then she stepped in to take power with 13's arsenal. Oh, make no mistake, she intends to take my place now. But... I've been watching you. And you watching me. I'm afraid we've both been played for fools.
Katniss Everdeen: I don't believe you.
President Snow: Oh, my dear Miss Everdeen. I thought we'd agreed never to lie to each other.
Katniss Everdeen: You should have been the Mockingjay. Nobody else would tell you what to say.
Johanna Mason: But nobody likes me.
Katniss Everdeen: They're afraid of you.
Johanna Mason: Anybody can kill anybody, Katniss. Even a president. You just have to be willing to sacrifice yourself.
[Katniss has just escaped for the Capitol]
President Alma Coin: What is she doing?
Plutarch Heavensbee: [nonchalant, shrugs slightly] I don't know. It's so frustrating when she goes rogue.
President Alma Coin: This isn't just adolescent, it's insubordination.
Plutarch Heavensbee: Put her on the first hovercraft back.
President Alma Coin: Don't be ridiculous. She can't come back now. She's mythic.
Gale Hawthorne: What's goin' on in your head?
Katniss Everdeen: I don't know.
Gale Hawthorne: That's like kissin' someone who's drunk. Doesn't count.
Peeta Mellark: Friend, lover, Victor, fiancé, enemy, target, mutt. And now ally? Yeah, I'll add that to the list of words I use to try to figure you out.
Peeta Mellark: [of the flowers he is planting] I found these over by the edge of the forest. It's primrose.
[Doctor removing neck brace from Katniss and examining her neck]
Doctor Aurelius: Okay... Okay, I know, I know. I'm sorry. I know it's a little tender.
