[Katniss laughs]
Katniss Everdeen: You know I wouldn’t believe you even if you did.
[Flickerman and the audience laugh]
Caesar Flickerman: I love her! The girl on fire, so cheeky.


Caesar Flickerman: But, Katniss, on more serious note. I think we’re all here a little disappointed, more than a little disappointed, that a certain wedding did not take place. Aren’t we folks? Mm…alas. But, am I correct in assuming that this is the gown that you would have worn on that day, yes or no?
Katniss Everdeen: Yes. President Snow thought everyone would want to see it.

Katniss Everdeen: Like a Mockingjay.
Caesar Flickerman: Your stylist has certainly outdone himself this time, hasn’t he?
[Snow watches this display with disapproval at his home]
Caesar Flickerman: What theatricality? Cinna, take a bow.

[the audience rise to their feet to protest in outrage out of concern for Katniss]
Caesar Flickerman: Calm down. This is news to all of us.
[Peeta looks at Haymitch and Haymitch nods his approval of this lie]
Caesar Flickerman: Alright.
[Flickerman whispers something to Peeta who quickly goes up to join the other victors all standing on a raised platform behind Flickerman, the audience continues to act outraged, calling for the games to be canceled]

[as Peeta joins the other tributes he goes over to Katniss and they embrace each other, then Katniss joins hands with the tribute next to her, Finnick notices this and he joins hands with the tribute next to him and all the other tributes join hands with each other]

[later that night in their living quarters; to Peeta]
Katniss Everdeen: There’s no way they’ll cancel, they can’t.
[Haymitch and Effie enter the room]
Haymitch Abernathy: Baby bump was a stroke of genius. Unfortunately, the games are still on. This is goodbye, for now.
Effie Trinket: Presents for the boys.
[she hands Haymitch and Peeta a small box each]
Haymitch Abernathy: What is this?
[he opens the box and finds a gold wristband]

[she walks over to him, embraces him and whispers; referring to Peeta]

Plutarch Heavensbee: Be patient. They’re holding hands now, but the minute the gun goes off it’ll be a bloodbath.
[Plutarch looks at Snow]
Plutarch Heavensbee: And the whole idea of revolution will be discredited.


[as they look at the footage of Katniss showing off her mockingjay outfit on Flickerman’s show]
President Snow: And the idea of her? The idea of the Mockingjay?
Plutarch Heavensbee: The more allies she betrays, the more friends she kills, the more she reveals her true self.
President Snow: As long as it ends with her picture in the sky and the sound of cannon.
Plutarch Heavensbee: And it shall.
President Snow: It better.
Plutarch Heavensbee: Let’s watch her get her hands dirty first.
President Snow: Hm.
Plutarch Heavensbee: Excuse me.
[Plutarch leaves the room to enter the controls room where all the arena operators are, they are rise when Plutarch enters, he looks around the room for a moment]
Plutarch Heavensbee: Let’s start.


[before Katniss enters the arena Cinna gives her some last advice]
Cinna: The suit is light, not thermal. So I’d guess tropics or desert.
[they hear the announcer on the speakers]
Announcer: Sixty seconds till launch.
Katniss Everdeen: That dress was beautiful. I think it’s the best one you’ve ever made.
Cinna: I thought you’d like it.
Katniss Everdeen: I just wanted to tell you because I don’t know…
Cinna: Stop. Remember I’m still betting on you, girl on fire.
[he pins a small mockingjay pin on her upper arm and hides it under another layer of cloth, they look at each other for a moment before embracing each other]

[suddenly they hear 3 cannon’s being shot marking more tribute deaths, Finnick smiles]
Finnick Odair: Well, I guess they’re not holding hands anymore.
[Finnick laughs]
Katniss Everdeen: You think that’s funny?
Finnick Odair: Every time that cannon goes off it’s music to my ears. I don’t care about any of them.
[she looks at him disapprovingly]
Katniss Everdeen: Good to hear.
Finnick Odair: Wanna face the career pack alone? What would Haymitch say?
Katniss Everdeen: Haymitch isn’t here.
Peeta Mellark: Let’s keep moving.

[she climbs a tree and shoots an arrow into the sky which hits the force field revealing that it’s a dome; to the other after she’s climbed back down]
Katniss Everdeen: The force field, it’s a dome. We’re at the edge of the arena. I couldn’t find any signs of fresh water.
Finnick Odair: It’s gonna get dark soon. We’ll be safe if our backs protected. We should set up camp, take turns sleeping. I can take first watch.
Katniss Everdeen: Not a chance.
[Finnick looks offended]
Finnick Odair: Honey, that thing I did back there for Peeta, that was called saving his life. If I wanted to kill either of you I would’ve done it by now.
[he turns and walks off; Katniss turns to Peeta]
Katniss Everdeen: Why don’t you get some rest? I’ll take the first watch.
Peeta Mellark: Just for a little bit.

Finnick Odair: A what?


[Katniss sticks the spile into a nearby tree trunk, she waits for a moment and water starts to pour out through the spile, Katniss drinks it with thirst]
Finnick Odair: Are you kidding me? You’re kidding me!
[to Peeta as he joins them]
Finnick Odair: Have some water. Have some water.
[Peeta drinks from it next, then Finnick and then Katniss again]
Finnick Odair: I’m gonna get a leaf.
[Finnick returns with a leaf]
