Quote #10

[Johanna] throws back her head and shouts, "Whole country in rebellion? Wouldn't want anything like that!"

My mouth drops open in shock. No one, ever, says anything like this in the Games. [...] I have heard her and can never think about her again in the same way. She'll never win any awards for kindness, but she certainly is gutsy. Or crazy. (24.42-43)

Like Peeta, Johanna shows her courage through what she says and when she says it. It's extremely dangerous to express such sarcasm in the Games. Or, as Katniss says, it might just be crazy.
