President Snow (Donald Sutherland): "I wanted to tell you how very sorry I am about your sister. So wasteful. So unnecessary. Anyone could see the game was over by that point. In fact, I was about to issue an official surrender when they released those parachutes."
Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence): "You released those parachutes."
President Snow (Donald Sutherland): "Do you really think I gave the order? We both know I'm not above killing children but I'm not wasteful. I take life for specific reasons and there was no reason for me to destroy a pen full of Capital children. None at all. (coughs into handkerchief)
I must concede it was a masterful move on Coin's part. The idea that I was bombing our own helpless children to hold back the rebels, it turned the last of my guards against me. There was no resistance left inside the Capital or the mansion. Do you know, it aired live?! There's a particular savvy in that. Isn't there?
I'm sure she wasn't gunning for your sister but these things happen in war. My failure was in being so slow to grasp Coin's plan. She let the Capital and the Districts destroy each other and then she stepped in to take power of the 13th Arsenal.
Oh, make no mistake. She intends to take my place now but I've been watching you and you watching me. I'm afraid, we've both been played for fools."
Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence): "I don't believe you!"
President Snow (Donald Sutherland): "Oh my dear Miss Everdeen, I thought we agreed never to lie to each other."
