A Good Show
Gale: "They just want a good show, that's all they want."
Katniss: "There's 24 of us Gale. Only one comes out."
Yes, The Capitol (aka the Evil Government) does want a "good show" - literally. Each year, the Hunger Games are broadcast on live television throughout all 12 Panem Districts. It's like 'X Factor USA,' only with, you know, children killing other children. Yeah okay, it's nothing like 'X Factor.' Never mind.

Show You Off
Cinna: "I'm sorry that this happened to you. I'm here to help you in any way that I can."
Katniss: "Most people just congratulate me."
Cinna: "I don't see the point in that. So tonight, at the tribute parade, I'm gonna take you out and show you off to the world."
The relationship between Cinna and Katniss is truly a special one. He's on her side from the start.

Show Them Everything
Haymitch: "This is the time to show them everything. Make sure they remember you."
Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) is a former District 12 Hunger Games tribute (so yes, he won in his games). As a result, Haymitch is chosen to mentor Peeta and Katniss in the 74th Hunger Games. Haymitch says above all, making an impression is key - show the Capitol what you've got and they're going to take you very, very seriously.

May the Odds
Effie Trinket: "May the odds be ever in your favor."
This might be the most recognizable quote/saying related to 'The Hunger Games.' And yeah, the odds? Not really in anyone's favor.

Boy With the Bread
Katniss Everdeen: "I don't want to lose the boy with the bread."
Without giving too much away (in case you haven't seen the movie or read 'The Hunger Games' book yet), Katniss becomes attached to a young boy -- and later in her life, he becomes incredibly important to her survivial.

Katniss: "I volunteer! I volunteer as Tribute!"
When Katniss' younger sister, Primrose (Willow Shields), is chosen as the District 12 Hunger Games tribute, big sister steps up in a major way. Katniss doesn't think, she acts: immediately volunteering herself to go in Prim's place. Prim is only 12 years old, and Katniss knows she doesn't have the know-how to have any sort of shot at all of surviving the Games.
