May the Odds
This might be the most recognizable quote/saying related to 'The Hunger Games.' And yeah, the odds? Not really in anyone's favor.
Effie Trinket: "May the odds be ever in your favor."
A Good Show
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.
Gale: "They just want a good show, that's all they want."
Katniss: "There's 24 of us Gale. Only one comes out."
Make an Impression
Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) is Katniss' stylist during the Hunger Games. It's his job to make her presentable and viewer-friendly - but it's also his job, as he states, to help her really make the audience like her. When viewers like a tribute, they can offer up staples to them that could help them survive longer in the Hunger Games arena.
Katniss: "So you're here to make me look pretty?"
Cinna: "I'm here to help you make an impression."
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.
Katniss: "I volunteer! I volunteer as Tribute!"
