The Hunger Games (2012)
Stanley Tucci: Caesar Flickerman
Caesar Flickerman : So, Peeta, tell me, is there a special girl back home?
Peeta Mellark : No. No, not really.
Caesar Flickerman : No? I don't believe it for a second. Look at that face. Handsome man like you. Peeta... tell me.
Peeta Mellark : Well, there, uh... there is this one girl that I've had a crush on forever.
Caesar Flickerman : Ah.
Peeta Mellark : But I don't think she actually recognized me until the Reaping.
Caesar Flickerman : Well, I'll tell you what, Peeta. You go out there, and you win this thing, and when you get home, she'll have to go out with you. Right, folks?
Peeta Mellark : Thanks, but I, uh, I don't think winning's gonna help me at all.
Caesar Flickerman : And why not?
Peeta Mellark : Because she came here with me.
Caesar Flickerman : Ladies and gentlemen, from District 12: Katniss Everdeen - the girl on fire!
Caesar Flickerman : I think someone's a little nervous. I said, that was quite an entrance you made at the Tribute's Parade the other day. You wanna tell us about it?
Katniss Everdeen : [hesitant] Well, I was just... hoping I wouldn't burn to death...
Caesar Flickerman : [as crowd laughter subsides] When you came out of that chariot, I have to say my heart stopped.
Caesar Flickerman : Did any of you experience it as well?
[crowd enthusiastically agrees]
Caesar Flickerman : My heart stopped.
Katniss Everdeen : [self-consciously] So did mine.
Caesar Flickerman : [laughs along with crowd] Now tell me about the flames. Are they real?
Katniss Everdeen : [still self-conscious] Yes.
[gets encouragement from Cinna in the crowd]
Katniss Everdeen : In fact, I'm wearing them today. Would you like to see?
Caesar Flickerman : Wait, wait, wait! Is it safe?
Katniss Everdeen : [laughs] Yes.
Caesar Flickerman : What do you think, folks?
[crowd roars approval]
Caesar Flickerman : I think they mean yes!
[she stands up, spins around, twirls the fire dress, a vivid display of flame, she wears sheer white stockings and white open-toed high heels]
Caesar Flickerman : Whoa! Steady, steady! Let me thank you, that was really something! Katniss, that was something, that was something, thank you for that!
