"I wanna know exactly what you’re gonna tell Skinner."
"Oh you want our stories straight."
"No, no, no. I didn’t say that. I just want to hear it the way you saw it."

Ecaterina Teodoroiu 1894- 1917
Ecaterina Teodoroiu was a Romanian woman born in Târgu Jiu. She is known for her role on the Eastern Front in World War I, as a front-line soldier. She joined Ion Dragalina's 1st army and fought to repulse Germany's offense. She was sent to the front reluctantly, for women were not required to be at the front and did not often go. She soon proved herself a brave and skilled soldier. She was once captured by the Germans but escaped, killing 3 opposing soldiers on her way out. She was promoted to second-lieutenant and received the Military Virtue Medal. Ecaterina was killed in the Battle of Marasesti when she was hit in the chest by German machine gun fire, her last words were “Forward, men! I’m still with you!” x. A monument now stands on her grave.
"I’m just a fat guy sitting in the cold."
“Why are you sitting in the cold?”
“I’m waiting to go to work. I work an overnight security job. I live in Philly, but I take the bus up here and stay for four days each week. I can’t find work in Philly and I’ve got two kids.”
“Where do you sleep?”
“Starbucks, McDonalds, anywhere I can take a quick nap.”
Can we just stop and talk about this for a minute?
Thresh doesn’t make an alliance. Thresh doesn’t waste time liking her. Thresh knows that either he must kill her or she must kill him for one of them to win.
But this is the only way he can repay her for protecting Rue when he couldn’t. It’s the only way he can repay her for honoring Rue when he couldn’t. He honors her by sparing her friend, the girl who would have died for her.
The revolution really doesn’t start with Katniss.
It starts with Rue.
