Page   1   2   TRIVIA THE NOVEL


[back at her old house Katniss collects more of her mother’s herb bottles from the kitchen]
Gale Hawthorne: This is where you kissed me.
Katniss Everdeen: I didn’t think you remembered that.
Gale Hawthorne: I’d have to be dead to forget that. Maybe not even then.
[Katniss kisses Gale but he pulls away]
Gale Hawthorne: I knew you’d do that.
Katniss Everdeen: How? I didn’t.
Gale Hawthorne: Cause I’m in pain. That’s the only way that I can get your attention. Don’t worry, Katniss. It’ll pass.
[he walks away]


[Katniss and the crew are resting at a riverbank when a Pollux sees an actual mockingjay bird flying by, he points to his mockingjay pin]
Katniss Everdeen: Yeah, that’s a mockingjay.
[Pollux whistles at the bird and the bird along with the rest of its flock start mimicking the three-note whistle]
Gale Hawthorne: Well, now they’ll never shut up.
[Pollux gestures to Katniss to sing]
Katniss Everdeen: You want me to sing?
[Pollux nods his head and Katniss starts singing “The Hanging Tree”]
Katniss Everdeen: Are you, are you coming to the tree? Where they strung up a man, they say who murdered three. Strange things did happen here, no stranger would it be if we met at midnight in the hanging tree. Are you, are you coming to the tree? Where a dead man called out for his love to flee. Strange things did happen here, no stranger would it be if we met at midnight in the hanging tree. Are you, are you coming to the tree? Where I told you to run so we’d both be free. Strange things did happen here, no stranger would it be if we met at midnight in the hanging tree…


[Coin, Heavensbee, Haymitch and Beetee watch the footage of Katniss in District 12 with her singing “The Hanging Tree”]
Katniss Everdeen: Are you, are you coming to the tree? Wear a necklace of hope side by side with me.
Plutarch Heavensbee: That line was originally “necklace of rope.” I had it changed to “necklace of hope.”
Haymitch Abernathy: Wow. You are a true wordsmith.
Plutarch Heavensbee: Little on the nose, but, of course, so is war.
President Alma Coin: Every district’s seeing this?
Beetee: Yes. But not the Capitol. I designed this signal defense system for them, but I can’t find my way through it. Guess I did my job too well. At the time, I was just thinking of the science of it all. We’ll get through it.


[we hear people in other districts singing “The Hanging Tree” song, we then see a crowd carrying crates charging toward a dam, the Peacekeepers open fire on them, the ones that make it through put the crates in the dam and set them off, which obliterates the dam and cuts off power to The Capitol]
President Snow: Moves and countermoves.


[Boggs finds Katniss in the large diner eating with Primrose]
Boggs: Katniss, you’re wanted in Command.
[she leaves with Boggs who escorts her to the command room where another video from Peeta is being shown, Katniss is horrified to see him looking gaunt and sunken-eyed]
Peeta Mellark: Tonight, we’ve received reports of derailed trains, of granaries on fire, and of a savage attack on the hydroelectric dam in District 5.
Katniss Everdeen: Oh, what have they done to you?
Peeta Mellark: I’m begging for restraint and decency.
Beetee: We interrupt your regularly scheduled horse manure to bring you…
[Beetee interrupts the video with Katniss’ propaganda video]mockingjay-13
President Alma Coin: That’s it. That’s our footage.
Plutarch Heavensbee: Beetee’s in.
Peeta Mellark: Katniss?
President Alma Coin: He sees it. He sees our propo.
Peeta Mellark: Katniss, are you there?
[with tears in her eyes she walks closer the screen]
Katniss Everdeen: Peeta.
Peeta Mellark: Katniss?


Caesar Flickerman: Peeta, please continue. You were telling us about these savage attacks.
Peeta Mellark: Yeah.
[Peeta looks into the camera again]
Peeta Mellark: The attack on the dam was a callous and inhuman act of destruction…
[he’s interrupted again by Katniss’ propaganda video]
Peeta Mellark: Think about it. How will this end? What will be left? No one can survive this. No one is safe now. Not here in the Capitol. Not in any of the districts. They’re coming, Katniss. They’re gonna kill everyone. And in District 13 you’ll be dead by morning!
[suddenly Peeta is pulled away and the program is abruptly ended]
Haymitch Abernathy: He’s warning us. That was a warning.
Boggs: Yes, it was.
Katniss Everdeen: We have to get him out before they kill him.


President Alma Coin: Is there anything in the air?
D13 Systems Operator: Nothing on Doppler, ma’am.
President Alma Coin: He was in the mansion, he could have overheard something.
Plutarch Heavensbee: Possibly.
President Alma Coin: It’s time for an air raid drill.
[the alarm for the air raid goes off and everyone makes their way to a lower level]
Air Raid Drill: This is a code red alert. Please, remain calm and begin evacuation protocol.
[Katniss makes her way to the diner to get Primrose]
Katniss Everdeen: Prim! Prim!
Air Raid Drill: Proceed to your nearest stairwell and descend to level 40. Blast doors will be
sealed in six minutes.
[Katniss makes her way to the lower level frantically looking out for her mother and Primrose]
Air Raid Drill: This is a code red alert. Please, remain calm and begin evacuation protocol. Proceed in an orderly fashion to your nearest stairwell and descend to level 40.


[Coin enters the control room]
D13 Systems Operator #2: Madam President, three Capitol squadrons just entered our airspace.
President Alma Coin: How much time do we have?
D13 Systems Operator #2: They’re a few seconds from range.
President Alma Coin: Prepare to scramble the fleet.
D13 Systems Operator #3: Copy that.
President Alma Coin: Open up short-range air defense. Arm long-range missiles for counterattack.
[back on the stairwell as everyone is making their way to the lower level]
Air Raid Drill: This is a code red alert. Please, remain calm and begin evacuation protocol. Proceed in an orderly fashion to your nearest stairwell and descend to level 40. Blast doors will close in four minutes.
[suddenly the lights go out and water starts pouring on everyone on the stairwell causing panic]


[as Katniss makes it to the lower level she looks for her mother and Primrose]
Air Raid Drill: Continue to the Supply Station and claim one pack for each member of your compartment. Please keep all personal items within your assigned area. Be courteous to your fellow citizens. This is a code red alert. All citizens should be inside the bunker. Blast doors will close in two minutes.
Katniss Everdeen: Mom! Where’s Prim?
Katniss’ Mother: I thought she went to find you. She must still be on the stairs.
Katniss Everdeen: There’s no one on the stairs. She went back for the cat.
[Katniss runs out of the bunker to go and find Primrose]
District 13 Citizen: Hey, stop! Stop!
Air Raid Drill: Blast doors will close in one minute.


[back in the controls room]
D13 Systems Operator #2: They hit the far edge of the northwest quadrant. Penetrated forty feet.
D13 Systems Operator #3: Missed the living quarters. Only minor damage to corridors 2 and 3.
President Alma Coin: Is there any radiation?
D13 Systems Operator #3: None detected.
D13 Systems Operator #2: Doppler shows a fourth wave approaching.


[Katniss rushes up the stairs to find Primrose]
Air Raid Drill: Blast doors will close in thirty seconds.
Katniss Everdeen: Prim! Prim!
Primrose Everdeen: Katniss!
[Primrose rushes down the stairs]
Air Raid Drill: This is a code red alert.
Primrose Everdeen: Katniss!
Air Raid Drill: Blast doors will close in fifteen seconds.
Katniss Everdeen: Get down here! Hurry!
Air Raid Drill: This is a code red alert.
Katniss Everdeen: Come on!
Air Raid Drill: Blast doors will close in ten seconds.
[Primrose rushes down towards Katniss carrying the cat in her arms and Gale behind her]
Air Raid Drill: Nine. Eight…
Katniss Everdeen: Come on!
Air Raid Drill: Seven. Six. Five…
[Katniss and Primrose rush towards the blast doors as it’s being closed]
Katniss Everdeen: Hold the doors!
Air Raid Drill: Four. Three. Two…
Katniss Everdeen: Wait! Hold the doors!
Air Raid Drill: One.
[Katniss, Primrose and Gale make it through the doors just as it’s closing]


[as they make it into the bomb shelter]
Katniss Everdeen: You went back for the cat?! What were you thinking?!
Primrose Everdeen: I wasn’t gonna leave him behind! I couldn’t live with myself.
[Katniss embraces Primrose]
Katniss Everdeen: I know, Prim.
Air Raid Drill: Blast doors are now sealed.
Katniss Everdeen: Let’s go.
[suddenly the feel the blasts of the bombs]


[back in the controls room as they are being bombed by the Capitol]
D13 Systems Operator #2: Damage to the aquifer in the northwest quadrant. We lost a transport corridor.
President Alma Coin: There’s nothing else in the northwest.
D13 Systems Operator #3: Our surface-to-air launchers just took a direct hit in sector 3.
President Alma Coin: Because we revealed ourselves, they saw us firing there.
[Coin looks at Boggs for a moment]
President Alma Coin: Stand down. Don’t launch the fleet.
D13 Systems Operator #2: Another twelve Capitol bombers approaching sector 3 in attack formation.
President Alma Coin: Hold fire on their approach.
[they watch the monitor as they get bombed again]
President Alma Coin: What did they hit?
D13 Systems Operator #3: Bedrock. But there’s debris in the ventilation shaft.


President Alma Coin: They’re not targeting our fleet.
Boggs: Or our Special Weaponry.
President Alma Coin: They don’t know what we have or where we have it. Can you confirm that everyone’s safely in the bunker?
Boggs: Already done.
President Alma Coin: Conceal all remaining anti-aircraft guns. Seal launching pads and ventilation corridors. We are gonna wait this out. This is what we’re built for.
Plutarch Heavensbee: They’ll seal us in here like a tomb.
President Alma Coin: The Capitol’s working off some outdated information. I’d rather not update it for them.
Plutarch Heavensbee: Madam President, I…I know it’s not my place…
President Alma Coin: It’s not. You’re a welcome guest, but you’re out of your depth down here.
[to the system operators]
President Alma Coin: Reduce oxygen to fourteen percent to conserve it.
D13 Systems Operator #3: Copy that.
President Alma Coin: Take a deep breath, Mr. Heavensbee. It’s gonna be a long night.
[Heavensbee nods his head as more bomb blasts are heard]


[inside the bomb shelter everyone huddles together in terror as they are being bombed above]
Katniss Everdeen: Prim, talk about something. Anything.
Primrose Everdeen: They promoted me at the hospital. I forgot to tell you. They’re training me to be a doctor.
Katniss Everdeen: They’d be stupid not to.
[they’re interrupted by another terrifying bomb blast]


[Katniss goes over to Finnick’s bunker]
Katniss Everdeen: Hey. Can I sit?
Finnick Odair: Yeah.
[Katniss sits next to Finnick who’s looking at a photo of Annie]mockingjay-14
Katniss Everdeen: Snow’s using Annie to punish you. He’s taunting us with them. I didn’t understand until just now watching that stupid cat.
Finnick Odair: After your first Games, I thought the whole romance was an act. We all expected you to continue that strategy. But it wasn’t until Peeta’s heart stopped and he nearly died that I knew I’d misjudged you. You love him. I’m not saying in what way, maybe you don’t even know yourself. But anyone paying attention can see it.
Katniss Everdeen: How do you live with it?
Finnick Odair: I drag myself out of nightmares and there’s no relief in waking up. But it’s better not to give in to it. It takes ten times longer to put yourself back together than it does to fall apart.


[Boggs wakes Katniss as she sleeps next to Primrose in their bunker]
Boggs: Katniss? Katniss? Come with me.
[Boggs takes Katniss to Coin in the controls room]
President Alma Coin: We took their best shot, didn’t we?
Katniss Everdeen: Yeah.
President Alma Coin: Your mother and sister okay?
Katniss Everdeen: Yeah, they’re fine.
President Alma Coin: I need you to do something for us. I need you to tell Panem that we survived an attack by the Capitol with no casualties, that we remain fully operational.
Katniss Everdeen: Okay.
President Alma Coin: You should know something. We had eight extra minutes of civilian evacuation because of Peeta’s warning. I won’t forget that.
Katniss Everdeen: Thank you.


[Katniss and her propo team make their way outside to make another video]
Effie Trinket: So Katniss, it’s “13 is alive and well and so am I.” Katniss? Katniss. Never one to waste it in rehearsal, I know.
[they walk outside to see the huge amount of damage and the ground covered in hundreds of white roses, Katniss picks up one]
Gale Hawthorne: Why would they drop these?
Katniss Everdeen: For me.
Cressida: Ready to go, Katniss? We’re gonna do this, just like District 8. Tell me about the roses.
[Katniss is still too much in shock to speak]
Cressida: Tell Snow 13 is alive and well.
Katniss Everdeen: He’s gonna kill Peeta.
Cressida: Let’s try again. Can you speak up? We don’t have a mic on you.
[instructing Katniss]
Cressida: “13 is alive and well and so am I.”


Katniss Everdeen: He’s gonna kill Peeta. I can’t.
Cressida: Katniss?
Gale Hawthorne: You can do it, Katniss.
Katniss Everdeen: I can’t do this.
Cressida: “13 is alive and well and so am I.”
Katniss Everdeen: He’s just gonna keep… He’s never gonna stop.
Cressida: Katniss.
[Haymitch goes to Katniss and embraces her]
Effie Trinket: Cressida, we should cut the cameras.
Katniss Everdeen: As long as I’m The Mockingjay.
Haymitch Abernathy: It’s okay, Katniss.
Katniss Everdeen: No, he warned me. He warned me about this. He’s doing this because I’m The Mockingjay. He’s punishing Peeta to punish me. No. No, I can’t do this.
Cressida: Katniss.
Katniss Everdeen: Don’t make me do this!
Boggs: Let her go.
Katniss Everdeen: I gotta get out of here.


[Haymitch finds Katniss in her hiding place]
Haymitch Abernathy: So this is the end, huh? I suppose you’re just gonna hide down here forever?
Katniss Everdeen: I can’t be The Mockingjay.
Haymitch Abernathy: Not The Mockingjay, just Katniss. You know, you’re the only real friend I have down here. I don’t suppose they gave you any kind of medication?
Katniss Everdeen: You’re unbelievable.
Haymitch Abernathy: Okay, but I meant what I said. I… Look, the reason I’m here is to let you know they’re rescuing Peeta.
Katniss Everdeen: What?
Haymitch Abernathy: The dam went down in District 5, took out most of the power to the Capitol, knocked out their signal defense. Beetee’s inside their system now wreaking all kinds of havoc. A window is open to us. How much longer? I don’t know. I guess until the Capitol can get the power back on.
Katniss Everdeen: And President Coin?
Haymitch Abernathy: You know, I can never fully support that woman in light of the prohibition they have going on around this place, but Plutarch got word that Peeta and the others are in the Tribute Center. And with the power out, Coin sees this as an opportunity. She knows that Peeta is the Capitol’s weapon, the same way you’re ours. And as opposed to having you two pointing at each other, she’s going to get him.


Katniss Everdeen: I have to go help.
[Haymitch stops Katniss leaving]
Haymitch Abernathy: Hey, hey, woh, kiddo. Wait. Come on. What, are you just gonna jump out of the vent and go storm the Capitol? Besides, it’s already underway. Six soldiers went in. Volunteer only. And guess who was the first brave soul to sign up.
Katniss Everdeen: Gale.


[Cressida gets Finnick in place to make a propo video]
Cressida: Okay, Finnick?
Finnick Odair: Yeah. Yeah.
Cressida: Go in the center there. Those rocks. Castor, to left. Pollux, you’re with me. So we’ll go straight to camera. Okay? Finnick?
Finnick Odair: Yeah.
Cressida: Okay. Take your time. Just remember to keep talking and don’t stop.
[Finnick looks into the camera]
Finnick Odair: This is Finnick Odair.
[Katniss and Haymitch enter the meeting room where Finnick’s video is being played]
Cressida: Winner of the 65th Hunger Games. And I’m coming to you from District 13, alive and well. We’ve survived an assault from the Capitol, but I’m not here to give you recent news.


Katniss Everdeen: Why is Finnick doing a propo?
Haymitch Abernathy: It’s a lot more than that.
President Alma Coin: Beetee’s commandeered the system.
Beetee: Now that they’re down to generator power there’s a more limited range of frequencies available to them. And I’m filling them all up with Finnick.
Plutarch Heavensbee: Not many will see it, but whoever does will think it’s another propo.
Beetee: What they don’t know is this broadcast is jamming their entire system with noise. Early defense warning, internal communications, everything. As long as the broadcast goes through, our team should be able to get in and out undetected.
[Katniss looks up to continue watching Finnick’s video]
Finnick Odair: The truth, not the myths about a life of luxury. Not the lie about glory for your homeland. You can survive the arena. The moment you leave, you’re a slave.
