Caesar Flickerman: So, Peeta, tell me, is there a special girl back home?

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.

Peeta Mellark: You definitely smell better than I do.

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!
