"Fire Burns Brighter In The Darkness."
―Official tagline

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is the film adaptation of the first half of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins and the sequel to Catching Fire film. It was released at November 20th at the UK and November 21st at the USA. It is set to be released at February 8th in China. The story continues to follow Katniss Everdeen; having twice survived the Hunger Games, Katniss finds herself in District 13. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss reluctantly becomes the symbol of a mass rebellion, a mockingjay, against the Capitol and fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage. All of the actors whose roles continue into the final films reprised their roles in Mockingjay. It was directed by Francis Lawrence. The film was Nominated for Best Original Song in the 72nd Golden Globe Awards.


After being rescued from the destroyed arena in the 75th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen, along with fellow Victors Beetee and Finnick Odair, are taken to District 13, an underground rebel facility hidden beneath the ruins of the old District 13, where she is reunited with her mother and sister Prim. While recuperating, she is introduced to President Alma Coin, the rebel leader, and is told that her actions in the arena sparked riots and strikes against the Capitol. Coin asks her if she will become the "Mockingjay"—the symbol of the rebellion—as part of their "hearts and minds" strategy. Katniss flatly declines, angrily reminding her that they left Peeta Mellark, her portrayed lover and fellow District 12 tribute, behind in the arena. At the suggestion of Plutarch Heavensbee, the former Gamemaker, she is taken to see the ruins of District 12, which was completely leveled by a Capitol bombing campaign (with the exception of the houses in the Victor's Village). After seeing that Peeta is being used by Capitol state television to try and quell the rebellion, Katniss reluctantly changes her mind and agrees to become Coin's Mockingjay, on the condition that Peeta and the other victors will be rescued at the earliest opportunity and pardoned.

After Haymitch notes that Katniss thrives on spontaneity, she is introduced to her film team (led by Capitol escapee Cressida), is dressed up in a specially-designed outfit, and given Effie Trinket as a stylist and close friend Gale as a bodyguard. They go out to District 8 to visit a hospital, but as the visit concludes, a Capitol bombing squadron arrives and bombs the hospital, killing everyone inside. In her rage, Katniss gives a rousing speech to the camera, which is broadcast when Beetee hijacks the Capitol's news feed. The team then go back to District 12, where Gale tells the story of its destruction, and Katniss is filmed singing "The Hanging Tree." After both are broadcast, strikers in District 7 kill an entire team of Peacekeepers with hidden land mines, and a rebel demolition team from District 5 destroys the dam providing the Capitol with electricity, forcing them to use power generators and weakening their ability to broadcast their propaganda.

That night, Katniss is watching Peeta being interviewed by Caesar Flickerman, the Games' former presenter, when, in an apparent defiance of his captors, he suddenly shouts a warning to the camera that the Capitol is about to attack District 13. Coin orders a mass evacuation into the underground shelters. While Prim is nearly locked out when she goes back to get her cat, everyone manages to get inside safely, and the facility survives the attack unharmed. Upon emerging, Katniss discovers that the area is littered with white roses, and realizes that President Snow has sent them to taunt her, and presumes that he is about to kill Peeta. As Peeta's warning gave the District an additional eight minutes evacuation time, Coin dispatches an elite special forces team, which includes Gale, to rescue him, along with Johanna Mason, and Annie Cresta, the remaining Victors, from their prison in the Capitol's Tribute center. The rescue is successful. However, when Katniss goes to greet Peeta, he unexpectedly attacks and strangles her into unconsciousness, before being knocked unconscious himself by Boggs.

Katniss wakes up in the medical facility, and is informed that Peeta has been "hijacked"— a form of physical/mental torture in which he is brainwashed into wanting to kill Katniss through aversion therapy and tracker jacker venom—explaining why the Capitol allowed Gale's team to escape. A process to undo the therapy begins, with Peeta kept in isolation. Meanwhile, Coin announces the successful rescue of the Victors, and that the fight may now be taken to the Capitol.[2] During Coin's speech, Katniss looks for Peeta and looks in horror as she sees the hijacked Peeta in solitary confinement, restrained.

The story concludes in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2.


The film adaptations of Mockingjay have been announced: Part 1 will be released November 21, 2014, and Part 2 will be released November 20, 2015. This follows what the actors in The Hunger Games have been saying about signing on for four films.[3] Based upon Lionsgate's renaming of the film for Catching Fire, it is known that the last films will be called The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. While filming in Atlanta, Georgia it was revealed that both parts will be shot back-to-back.[4]


New Characters Introduced:


  • Katniss Everdeen: (whispering, to herself) "Start simple- start with what you know is true. My name is Katniss Everdeen. My home is District 12. I was in the Hunger Games. I escaped. Peeta... (her voice breaks) Peeta was left behind."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (harshly) "Finnick."
  • Finnick Odair: (stops sobbing, but doesn't look at her) "I...wanted to go back, for Johanna and Peeta. But, uh, I- I couldn't move. (pause) They have Annie, too. She was taken...She-she's in the Capitol. (pauses again) I wish she was dead. I wish they were all dead, and we were, too."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (looking at the vast size of 13's underground network) "We were always told that there was nothing left of 13."
  • Boggs: "Capitol bombed the surface into rubble... But we're military. We learned to survive down here, training, preparing... The war never stopped, for us."
  • Alma Coin: "When you fired your arrow at that forcefield, you electrified the nation. There have been riots and rebellions and uprisings in seven districts in the last few weeks."
  • Alma Coin: (sharply) "Miss Everdeen, this Revolution is about everyone. It's about all of us- and we need a voice."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (quiet, but furious) "Then you should have saved Peeta." (walks out)
  • Alma Coin: (swivels in her chair to face Plutarch) "...Maybe you should have rescued the boy, instead."
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "No. (shakes his head) No, no, no... Listen to me, no-one else can do this but her."
  • Alma Coin: "This is not the girl you described."
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "Well, obviously we need to make this personal for her. She needs to be reminded who the real enemy is-"
  • Alma Coin: "She knows who the enemy is, that's not the issue."
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "No, she's forgotten. (pause) There's discussing, and there's showing. We need to let her see what the Capitol did to 12."
  • Alma Coin: "She-can't-handle it. The Games destroyed her."
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "This is our only choice. (pause) People don't always turn up the way you want them to, Madame President. But, that anger- that anger-driven defiance- is what we need. We need a lightning rod. We need to unite these people, who have been doing nothing but killing one another in an arena for decades. She's the face of this rebellion- they'll follow her."
  • Coriolanus Snow: "Egeria, you'll have to re-write these lines. I won't call them rebels. These are senseless acts of defiance- and I won't legitimize them."
  • Egeria: (nods) "We'll call them... 'criminals'.
  • Coriolanus Snow: "H'm." (shakes his head)
  • Egeria: "...'Radicals?'"
  • Coriolanus Snow: "H'm. (nods slowly, daubs at a small razor cut on his cheek) Otherwise, we're breaking my oldest rule... Never let them see you bleed."
  • Coriolanus Snow: "The criminals you see before you used symbols for sedition. Which is why, all images associated with the Mockingjay are now...forbidden. (Snow's granddaughter hastily unwinds her braid) For those who ignore the warnings of history... (Peacekeepers execute the captive rebels) Prepare to pay the ultimate price."
  • Peeta Mellark: "Well, first you have to understand what it's like to be in the Games. I mean, you only get one wish, and it's very costly."
  • Caesar Flickerman: (nods) "It costs you your life."
  • Peeta Mellark: "I think it costs more than your life."
  • Caesar Flickerman: (bewildered) "What do you mean? What's more than your life?"
  • Peeta Mellark: "To murder innocent people?... That costs everything you are."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "There can't be a ceasefire. Not after everything Snow's done."
  • Gale Hawthorne: (referring to Peeta's pro-ceasefire propo) "...He could have done a lot of damage tonight. In most Districts, people are still to afraid to rise up- they need the courage."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "...Why do you think he said that?"
  • Gale Hawthorne: "I dunno- maybe he was forced. (pause) He looked okay to me... maybe he made some kind of deal to protect you."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "...He's still playing the Game."
  • Primrose Everdeen: "Tell me what's happening. I'm good at keeping secrets- even from Mom."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (smiles weakly at her) "No-one hates the Capitol more than me, and I want to help... but I keep thinking, even if we win this war, what happens to Peeta? I mean, I know he's not safe in the Capitol... but he's definitely not safe here."
  • Primrose Everdeen: "...I don't think you know how important you are to them. If you want something, all you have to do is ask... You could demand almost anything, and they'd have to give it to you."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (strokes Prim's hair, smiles) "...I should wake you up more often, Little Duck."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "Thank you for agreeing to meet with me. I've decided, I'll be your Mockingjay- but I have some conditions. (pulls a crumpled sheet of paper from her pocket, Coin and Plutarch stare at her curiously) Peeta, and the other two Victors held in the Capitol- Johanna Mason and Annie Cresta- will be rescued at the earliest opportunity. If, and when, Peeta is rescued, he will receive a full and unconditional pardon. No punishment will be inflicted- and the same goes for the other two."
  • Alma Coin: (nods carefully) "...No."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "It's not their fault that you abandoned them in that arena. They're doing and saying whatever they can to to survive."
  • Alma Coin: "Individuals don't make demands in District 13. There will be a trial, and a fair judgement... Thank you." (pretends to go back through her paperwork; Plutarch keeps watching Katniss in anticipation)
  • Katniss Everdeen: (furiously) "The Victors will be granted immunity! (Coin looks up at her sharply) And you will announce it before the population of 13! You will hold yourself and your government responsible, or you will find another Mockingjay!"
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: (slaps his hand on the table in satisfaction) "That's it! That's her, right there! Picture it, with the costume- gunfire in the background- a hint of smoke... That's our Mockingjay. (turns to Coin, whose eyes have not moved from Katniss) Madame President, we're losing ground because the people are losing hope. (gestures at Katniss) This is worth the risk- she's worth the risk. Tribunals, pardons, power of the people, this can all be the bedrock of the new Panem... But, I think, in wartime, even the noblest of causes can be bent a little."
  • Alma Coin: (long pause, then nods) "Do you have any other... conditions?"
  • Katniss Everdeen: (pause) "...My sister gets to keep her cat."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "...I hardly ever see children around here."
  • Primrose Everdeen: "Most of them were lost in an epidemic, a few years ago. (pause) Coin lost her family, too- a daughter and a husband." (Katniss looks at her, then back up at Coin)
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "Madame President, may I say, you were so very ...concise."
  • Alma Coin: "...You believe there was more to be said?"
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "May I speak freely?"
  • Alma Coin: (sarcastically) "You don't appear to do anything else."
  • Effie Trinket: "You know, everything old can be made new again... (sarcastically) Like democracy. Which brings me to this... (she holds out a black folder, and Katniss opens it to reveal mockingjay costume sketches)
  • Katniss Everdeen: (sadly) "Cinna... He's dead, isn't he?" (Effie looks truly sorry)
  • Effie Trinket: "...Yes, dear. (pause) He made Plutarch promise not to show you this until you'd agreed to be the Mockingjay, on your own. He knew the risks, as did we all... He believed in this Revolution, just as he believed in you."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (looking at Cinna's designs) "...They're beautiful."
  • Effie Trinket: "They have it. (Katniss looks at her) They have the Mockingjay outfit. Now, there's not much of a Prep Team here in 13... but we are going to make you the best-dressed rebel in history."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (uncertainly, but with as much anger as she can muster) "People of Panem, we fight, we dare, to end this hunger for justice!" (Plutarch and Effie wince and look at her in confusion. Haymitch walks into the studio, clapping sarcastically)
  • Haymitch Abernathy: "And that, my friends, is how a revolution dies. Hello, Katniss. (Katniss glares at him) Is this how you greet old friends?" (blows his nose)
  • Katniss Everdeen: "Maybe I just don't recognize you sober."
  • Haymitch Abernathy: (wipes his face with a handkerchief) "Well, then I guess it looks as bad as it feels."
  • Haymitch Abernathy: (after watching the pitiful attempts to make a Mockingjay propo with Coin, Plutarch, Katniss, Effie, Beetee, Boggs and Gale) "Madame... President, indulge me for a moment. (stands up) Let's everybody think of one incident where Katniss Everdeen genuinely moved you. And I'm not talking about when you were jealous of her hairstyle, or her dress went up in flames, or when she made a halfway decent shot with an arrow (Katniss glares at him)- and not when Peeta made you like her. So- one moment when she made you feel something."
  • Effie Trinket: (raises her hand quickly) "Oh- when she volunteered for her sister at the Reaping."
  • Haymitch Abernathy: "Excellent example. (clears a space on the screen, wiping out several items) ...I hope that wasn't important. (glances over his shoulder at Coin) Volunteer...for sis. (writes Volunteer 4 Sis) Go on- another example."
  • Effie Trinket: (raises her hand again) "When she sang that song, for little Rue."
  • Haymitch Abernathy: "Oh, yeah. Who didn't get choked up at that? (writes it in) You know, Effie, I like you better without all that makeup."
  • Effie Trinket: "I like you better sober." (Haymitch gives her a confused look over his shoulder)
  • Beetee Latier: "When she chose Rue as an ally, as well." (Haymitch writes it in)
  • Haymitch Abernathy: "Now, who can tell me what all these moments have in common?"
  • Gale Hawthorne: (smiles) "Nobody told her what to do."
  • Beetee Latier: "Unscripted, yes. (looks to Katniss) So- maybe we should just leave her alone."
  • Boggs: "And wash her face. She's still a girl, and you made her look thirty-five." (Katniss smiles at him)
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "The opportunities for spontaneity here underground are sorely lacking- so, if you're suggesting we toss her into combat-"
  • Alma Coin: "I can't sanction putting an untrained civilian into combat just for effect. This is not the Capitol"
  • Haymitch Abernathy: "No, that's exactly what I'm suggesting- put her in the field!"
  • Alma Coin: "We won't be able to protect her-"
  • Haymitch Abernathy: "Listen, you're looking for the face of the Revolution? She cannot be coached- believe me, I would know. It has to come from her."
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "So, perhaps somewhere lower-risk?..."
  • Beetee Latier: "District 8. They reported heavy bombing this morning, but there's no military targets left."
  • Alma Coin: "We won't be able to guarantee her safety-"
  • Katniss Everdeen: (scornfully) "You'll never be able to guarantee my safety. (pause) I want to go."
  • Alma Coin: "...And, if you're killed?"
  • Katniss Everdeen: (raises her eyebrow) "...Make sure you get it on camera." (Plutarch claps his hands approvingly)
  • Beetee Latier: "Here- (indicates an array of high-tech arrows to Katniss) Regular, incindiary, explosive- three types of arrows, all color-coded. (Katniss picks up one of the red-tipped explosive arrows and twirls it) And tell Finnick I'm working on a trident for him- that ought to cheer him up- (he notices Katniss nocking the arrow to her bow and aiming at the target, and hastily wheels himself over to stop her) Er, let's- not fire the red ones in here."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (looking over District 13's weapon arsenals) "You had all of this, and you just left the Districts to fend for themselves?"
  • Boggs: "It's not that simple, Katniss. We barely survived, and we were in no shape to launch a counterattack. Yeah, we could've bombed the Capitol- but they would have retaliated, with at least twice the firepower. And then what? Nobody would have been alive to claim victory."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "Sounds exactly like what Peeta said, when you all called him a traitor."
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "Quick introductions! Katniss, these people have come a long way to support our cause. (indicates Cressida) This is Cressida. In my opinion, one of the finest up-and-coming film directors in the Capitol-"
  • Cressida: (humorously) "Until I up and left. (nods to Katniss) Hi." (Katniss nods back)
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "Let's see what you can do! Be safe!" (he leaves the hovercraft)
  • Cressida: (to Katniss and Gale) "This is my assistant, Messalla-"
  • Messalla: (nods) "It's an honor to meet you."
  • Cressida: "-And your cameramen over there, Castor-"
  • Castor: (smiles, nods) "Hello."
  • Cressida: "-And Pollux. (Pollux smiles and nods to Katniss, who nods in return)
  • Boggs: "Let's get locked in." (they take their seats. Katniss glances at Pollux as she sits next to him)
  • Katniss Everdeen: (to Pollux)"...You're all from the Capitol? Plutarch got you out?"
  • Cressida: "Don't expect much chitchat from him. He's an Avox. The Capitol cut his tongue out years ago. (Pollux smiles weakly and exchanges hand signs with Castor) And no, it wasn't any sort of rescue, if that's what you mean. We all fled on our own. For this... (smiles) for you."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (looking into the hospital teeming with wounded and dying rebels) "...Don't film me in there. I can't help them-"
  • Cressida: (gently) "Just let them see your face, hmm?" (Katniss nods and steps inside; she walks slowly through the hospital in her Mockingjay outfit. Boggs, Gale, Paylor and the camera crew follow at a distance. By the time Katniss reaches the center of the room, all the rebels have seen her and are watching her.)
  • Young Girl: "Katniss?...Katniss Everdeen? (Katniss stops) ...What are you doing here?"
  • Katniss Everdeen: "...I- I came to see you."
  • Old Woman: "What- what about the baby?"
  • Katniss Everdeen: (showing pain, but for a different reason) "I lost it."
  • Young Man: "Are you fighting, Katniss? (stares at her intently) Are you here to fight with us?"
  • Katniss Everdeen: "I am... I will." (pause, then the young man raises his hand in the three-finger salute of District 12; one by one, every single rebel in the hospital follows, until they are all saluting Katniss)
  • Cressida: (to Pollux, operating his camera) "Tighter- tighter."
  • Antonius: "Not many of the cameras in 8 were left operational after the bombing... but we were able to confirm, it's her." (gestures to a screen showing Katniss and her propo team walking through the rubble of District 8)
  • Coriolanus Snow: "Zoom in, closer." (the camera closes in on Katniss in her Mockingjay armor, Snow smiles)
  • Antonius: "She was visiting a makeshift hospital full of wounded, though we don't know if she's still there. (pause) We could scramble hovercraft near the area- we might be able to target her."
  • Coriolanus Snow: (shakes his head no) "H'm...Kill the wounded."
  • Egeria: (shocked) "...Sir?"
  • Coriolanus Snow: (stares coldly at her) "You wrote that speech yourself, Egeria: Any association with the Mockingjay symbol is forbidden. Everyone inside that hospital has just committed treason. Show them what it costs, to be friends with Katniss Everdeen."
  • Cressida: "Katniss, can you tell everyone what's happening? (Katniss stares, grief-stricken, at the burning hospital) Katniss, what do you want to say?" (slowly, Katniss turns around, her expression full of fury; Cressida subtly gestures for her to face the cameras)
  • Katniss Everdeen: (facing Pollux's camera and Cressida, as Gale, Boggs and Paylor watch her) "I want the rebels to know that I'm alive... that I'm in District 8, where the Capitol just bombed a hospital filled with unarmed men, women, and children! And there will be no survivors. If you think for one second that the Capitol will ever treat us fairly, you are lying to yourself! Because we know who they are, and what they do! (points to the blazing hospital behind her) This is what they do, and we must fight back! (turns to face Castor's camera) I have a message for President Snow... You can torture us, and bomb us, and burn our districts to the ground- but do you see that?" (points to the destroyed, shot-down bomber hovercraft behind her) "Fire is catching, and if we burn, you burn with us!"
  • Alma Coin: (after watching Katniss' first propo) "...Plutarch's faith in you wasn't misplaced."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "...Thank you."
  • Finnick Odair: (to Katniss, watching Coin rally District 13 in a military chant) "You don't like hearing the fight song at a funeral, do you? (Katniss glances at him, and nods) But, the more people we get on our side, the closer we are to Peeta and Annie."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "...Yeah."
  • Gale Hawthorne: (on Peeta's pro- Capitol propo, after Peeta has clearly been abused) "We need to respond."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (glares at him) Did you see how he looks?!"
  • Gale Hawthorne: (contemptuously) "All I saw was a coward."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (furious) "You have no idea what they've done to him-"
  • Gale Hawthorne: (angry) "I don't care! I would never say what he just said, not if they tortured me, not if they had a gun to my head!"
  • Katniss Everdeen: "That is the same Peeta that defended you at the whipping post!"
  • Gale Hawthorne: "No, it isn't. Now, he's only defending himself. (his comunicuff beeps) Coin's calling a meeting- we need to respond." (starts to go)
  • Katniss Everdeen: (sharply) "When did 'we' become you and Coin?"
  • Gale Hawthorne: (turns around and comes back to her) "Everyone has a choice, Katniss. How can he sit there in the Capitol, and defend the people who destroyed his home and murdered his family?!"
  • Katniss Everdeen: (the realization dawns on her) "...Because he doesn't know. How can he? No one's seen what the Capitol did to 12. I have to show them."
  • Cressida: "Katniss, what happened here?" (Katniss stares at the ruins of District 12 all around her, unsure of what to say)
  • Gale Hawthorne: "...We were all standing here, watching you shoot the forcefield with your arrow, when the screen went dark. (Katniss turns to face him) We didn't know what was going on. Peacekeepers started forcing us back into our homes, and for about an hour, nothing. A little after nine, we heard their trucks pulling out- all of them, every single Peacekeeper. I knew what that meant. (pause) A couple guys from the mines and I, we started pulling people out of their houses, trying to herd them towards the fence, but a lot of people were afraid of the woods- so they tried to break for the road, down there. (starts walking towards the road behind the Justice Building)
  • Cressida: (to Pollux, quietly) "...Stay with Gale." (Pollux nods, the group walks around the Justice Building)
  • Gale Hawthorne: "Nine hundred and fifteen of us made it to the fence... and then we watched, as the hovercraft circled back towards the road...and firebombed them all. (they turn the corner, and Cressida, Messala, Pollux and Castor are shocked by the hundreds of burned bodies on the road. Gale sinks to his knees) Nine hundred and fifteen, out of ten thousand. (pause) I should've gotten more out, I should've grabbed more people- so many kids, I could've carried-"
  • Cressida: "You saved so many people, Gale. Without you there wouldn't be anything left of District 12, not even the memory of it." (Katniss puts her hand on Gale's shoulder)
  • Gale Hawthorne: "...This is where you kissed me."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (walks slowly towards him) "...I didn't think you'd remember that."
  • Gale Hawthorne: (smiles) "I'd have to be dead to forget that... and maybe not even then. (pause, then Katniss kisses him. After a moment, Gale pulls away slightly) I knew you'd do that."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "How? I didn't."
  • Gale Hawthorne: "'Cause I'm in pain. (smiles sadly at her) That's the only way I can really get your attention. (awkward pause) Don't worry, Katniss- it'll pass." (he walks out)
  • [Pollux sees a mockingjay land near them, smiles at Katniss and taps his mockingjay badge questioningly]
  • Katniss Everdeen: (smiles) "Yeah, that's a mockingjay." (Pollux whistles Katniss and Rue's four-note signal; the mockingjay flies away, and mockingjays all around the lake begin to repeat the whistle.)
  • Gale: "...Now they'll never shut up." (Pollux gestures to Katniss, requesting for her to sing)
  • Katniss Everdeen: "...You want me to sing? (Pollux beams at her and nods. Long pause, then Katniss begins to sing, with the mockingjays faintly joining in in the background) Are you- are you- coming to the tree/ Where they strung up a man they say who murdered three/ Strange things did happen there, no stranger would it be/ If we met at midnight in the hanging tree..." (Cressida nudges Castor, who begins recording the song with his camera)
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: (on the propo of Katniss singing "The Hanging Tree") "That line was originally 'necklace of rope', but I had it changed to 'necklace of hope'.
  • Haymitch Abernathy: (sarcastically) "My- you are truly a wordsmith."
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: (proudly, oblivious) "Yeah, it's a little on the nose- but hey, so's war."
  • Coriolanus Snow: (watching the Capitol blackout after District 5's dam is destroyed) "Moves... and countermoves."
  • Peeta Mellark: (in a Capitol interview/propo, having seen the airwaves hijacked with propaganda showing Katniss) "...Think about what this means! No-one can survive this! No-one is safe- not here in the Capitol, not in any of the Districts! (his horrified, confused expression suddenly clears a little) They're coming, Katniss. (onscreen, Katniss sees Peacekeepers seizing him) They're coming for all of you- and in District 13, you'll all be dead by morning!-" (the airwaves are abruptly cut off, Katniss gasps in horror)
  • 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!-"
  • Alma Coin: "Anything approaching our airspace?"
  • Radar Technician: "Nothing on Doppler, Ma'am."
  • Alma Coin: "Still, he was in the mansion- he could have heard something. (pause) It's time for an air-raid drill."
  • Defense Technician: "Our surface-to-air launchers in Sector 9 just took a direct hit."
  • Alma Coin: (nods slowly)"Because we revealed ourselves. (pause) Stand down, don't launch the fleet."
  • Defense Technician: "Copy that."
  • Radar Technician: "Another twelve Capitol bombers approaching for the attack."
  • Alma Coin: "Hold fire. (the bombs fall, causing the bunker around them to shudder slightly) What did they hit?"
  • Defense Technician: "Bedrock- but there's some debris in the corridors."
  • Alma Coin: "They aren't targeting the fleet-"
  • Boggs: "Or our Special Weaponry."
  • Alma Coin: "...They don't know what we have here, or where we have it. Can you confirm that all civilians made it to the bunkers?"
  • Boggs: "Already done."
  • Alma Coin: (nods) "Conceal all other anti-aircraft guns; seal up launch pads and ventilation corridors. We are gonna wait this one out- This is what we're built for."
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "They'll seal us in here, like a tomb!"
  • Alma Coin: "The Capitol is working off of some outdated information, here- I'd rather not update them."
  • Plutarch Heavensbee: "Madame President, I- I know it's not my place-"
  • Alma Coin: "No, it's not. You're a welcome guest, but you're out of your depth down here. (to Boggs) Reduce oxygen levels to fourteen percent to conserve the air supply. (Plutarch turns pale; another bomb hits, and he shudders) Take a deep breath, Mr. Heavensbee- it's going to be a long night."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (watching small cracks form in the ceiling as bombs strike the upper levels of District 13) "Prim, talk about something. Anything."
  • Primrose Everdeen: "...They promoted me at the hospital. I forgot to tell you. They're training me to become a doctor." (Mrs. Everdeen hugs both of them, Katniss smiles at her)
  • Katniss Everdeen: "They'd be stupid not to."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "Can I sit here?"
  • Finnick Odair: "Yeah." (Katniss sits next to him on his bunk, they look at the photo of Annie Finnick is holding)
  • Katniss Everdeen: "Snow's using Annie to punish you- he's taunting us with them. I didn't realize it until just now, watching that stupid cat."
  • Finnick Odair: "...After your first Games, I assumed the whole romance was an act. We all expected you'd continue with 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. (pause) I'm not saying what way- maybe you don't know yourself. But anyone who was paying attention would notice."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "...How do you live with it?"
  • Finnick Odair: "...I drag myself out of nightmares, and find there's no relief in waking up. But... it's better not to give in to it. It takes ten times longer to pull yourself together than it does to fall apart."
  • Alma Coin: "Well, we took their best shot- and we survived."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "..Yeah."
  • Alma Coin: "Are your mother and sister alright?"
  • Katniss Everdeen: "Yeah, they're fine."
  • Alma Coin: "Good. (pause) I need you to do something for me. I need you to tell Panem that we survived an attack by the Capitol with no casualties. I need you to show them the Mockingjay is alive, and that we remain intact and operational."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "Okay."
  • Alma Coin: "There's something you should know- we had eight extra minutes of civilian evacuation because of Peeta's warning. I won't forget that."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "Thank you."
  • Finnick Odair: "This is Finnick Odair, winner of the 65th Hunger Games. I'm coming to you live from District 13, but I'm not here to give you recent news..."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "Why is Finnick doing a propo?"
  • Haymitch Abernathy: "Oh, it's much more than a propo."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "President Snow, can you hear me?  I need to speak with-"
  • Coriolanus Snow: (suddenly comes on the air, gloating) "Miss Everdeen! What an honor... I don't imagine you're calling me to... thank me for the roses?" (grins at her viciously)
  • Katniss Everdeen: "I never asked for any of this.  I never asked to be in the Games. I never asked to be the Mockingjay.  I just wanted to save my sister, and keep Peeta alive.  You know that  So, please... just let him go.  Let him go, and I will stop being the Mockingjay.  I will run away, and you will never have to hear from me again.  I promise."
  • Coriolanus Snow: (smiles and shakes his head) "Miss Everdeen... You couldn't run away from this, anymore than you could have run from the Games."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "You told me to convince you that I was in love with Peeta. Haven't I at least done that?"
  • Coriolanus Snow: (smiles coldly) "Miss Everdeen... It's the things we love the most... that destroy us. (pause) I want you to remember that I said that to you."
  • Katniss Everdeen: "Gale! (runs and hugs him) Are you okay?...What's wrong?"
  • Gale Hawthorne: "...I don't get it. Every gun was back online, and on us, and we flew right past. They let us go. (pause) He's in there. The gas we used on the guards knocked him out too, but it's wearing off. You should be there when he wakes up."
  • Katniss Everdeen: (hugs him again) "...Thank you. (to Bogs) Thank you."
  • Primrose Everdeen: "...The Capitol changed Peeta's memories of Katniss?!"
  • Beetee Latier: "To make her seem life-threatening."
  • Haymitch Abernathy: "They turned him into a weapon, Katniss- to kill you." (Katniss, unable to speak because of the throat injuries Peeta gave her, stares silently at the wall)
  • Primrose Everdeen: "But you are going to try and reverse it, right?"
  • Beetee Latier: "Fear is the most difficult emotion to overcome- we're hardwired to remember fear."
  • Alma Coin: (final lines of the movie) "Today, we have rescued the Victors. Tomorrow... PANEM!" (raises her fist, and all of District 13 cheers)
