"Are there Capitol hoverplanes speeding in to blow us out of the sky?"

"Buttercup's eyes reflect the faint glow of the safety light over the door as he lies in the crook of Prim's arm, back on the job, protecting her from the night."

"The stink of unwashed bodies, stale urine, and infection breaks through the cloud of antiseptic."

"Another force to contend with."

"The shock of hearing Haymitch's voice yesterday, of learning that he was not only functional but had some measure of control over my life again, enraged me."
