Quotes: Moving the Goalposts
"About the time we think we can make ends meet, somebody moves the ends."

"We can still win. It's what we Gamemakers like to call a 'wrinkle'."
Plutarch Heavensbee, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Polly: "Hey! That was a lucky guess, and according to Polly's book of rules, which was written by yours truly, lucky guesses don't count. So there. No, you'll have to work a lot harder than that to win."
Botley: "That's not fair, Polly! If that's the right work of art, you can't just change the rules like that!"
Polly: "'You can't change the rules like that!' Well, guess what, Blotley, this is my house, and my missions, and you play how I say. Now I say, solve this!"
