Fulvia and Plutarch are hilarious to me, but that's because I'm not the one who has to live in the same world they do. And I love all the viewer interviews. And you know, when you're a Capitolite, holding someone's hand through every migraine for five years probably feels huge even though to us it's like "to the end of your contract? Oh, how noble," just like how our ancestors from a few centuries ago would probably roll their eyes at 99% of the complaints they'd hear from us.

Yeah, I think it pretty well sums up the concept of "first world problem." ;p On the other hand, Haymitch does get the concept that their ability to empathize, however nutty their point of comparison, is perfectly real.

Fulvia in particular is hilarious. "Why, they'd never lie to Plutarch! He's not a beautician! Er... power to the people, yeah. Beauticians are totally not the same as our noble laborers in the coal mines... eek! You have nasty scars! Get the beauticians!" She's even funnier because she's such a sendup of Hollywood activists.

Who I would not want to work with.
