High School Musical (2006) (TV)
Gabrilla Montez: [about singing previously] Well, you sound like you've done a lot of singing, too.
Troy Bolton: Yeah, my showerhead is very impressed with me.

Gabrilla Montez: The Wildcats' superstar is... afraid?
Troy Bolton: No, no, I'm not afraid. I'm just... scared.

Troy Bolton: Callbacks the same day as the game?
Gabrilla Montez: And the scholastic decathlon!
Taylor: Why would they do this?
Chad: I smell a rat named Darbus...
Kelsi: Actually, I think it's two rats, neither of them named Darbus.
Chad: Do you know something about this... small person?
Kelsi: [sighs] Miss Darbus might think she's protecting the show, but Ryan and Sharpay are pretty much only concerned with protecting *themselves*.
Chad: Do you know what I'm gonna do to those two overmoussed showdogs?
Troy Bolton: Nothing. We're not gonna do anything to them. Except sing... maybe. All right. Now this is only going to happen; if we all work together... Now who's in?
[Everyone joins hands]

Troy Bolton: I'll call you, I'll call you tomorrow.
Gabrilla Montez: Yeah.
Troy Bolton: Here put your number in. Here.
[He takes her picture]
Gabrilla Montez: You too.
Troy Bolton: There you go. Well, just, so you know singing with you was the most fun I've had on this entire vacation. So, uh, where do you live?
[He realizes that she has already left]
Troy Bolton: [looks at her picture, then says her name to himself] Gabriella.

Troy Bolton: Whoa, don't tell me you're good at hoops too.
Gabrilla Montez: You know, I once scored 41 points on a league game.
Troy Bolton: [looks at her, astonished] No way.
Gabrilla Montez: Mmhmm. Yeah, and on the same day I invented the space shuttle and microwave popcorn.
Troy Bolton: [grins wildly as he realizes she tricked him] Ah, microwave popcorn. Haha, very funny.

Gabrilla Montez: [after Sharpay asks if Gabriella and Troy were going to sign up for the musical] Oh no, no, no, I was just looking at all the bulletin boards. Lots going on at this school. Wow.
[Sharpay gives her a look]
Gabrilla Montez: Nice penmanship.

Gabrilla Montez: Do you remember in kindergarten how you'd meet a kid and know nothing about them, then 10 seconds later you're playing like you're best friends, because you didn't have to be anything but yourself?
Troy Bolton: Yeah.
Gabrilla Montez: Singing with you felt like that.

Gabrilla Montez: In my other schools, I was the freaky math girl. It's cool coming here and being... whoever I wanna be. So, you wanna do the callbacks?
Troy Bolton: Hey, just call me freaky callback boy!

Gabrilla Montez: This should be 16 over pi...
Chem Teacher: Yes, Ms Montez?
Gabrilla Montez: Oh, I'm sorry, uh... Shouldn't the 2nd equation read 16 over pi?
Chem Teacher: 16 over pi? That's impossible...
[Chem teacher whips out a calculator]
Chem Teacher: I stand corrected.

Gabrilla Montez: [to Troy] You're a cool guy, Troy. But not for the reasons your friends think.

Gabrilla Montez: Why is everybody staring at you?
Taylor: Not me, you.
Gabrilla Montez: Because of the callbacks? I can't have people staring at me. I really can't.

Gabrilla Montez: When I was singing with you, I felt like just a girl.
Troy Bolton: You even look like one too!

Gabrilla Montez: [music starts playing for "Breaking Free"] I can't do this, Troy. Not with everyone staring at me...
Troy Bolton: Hey, hey, hey. Look at me- right at me. Like the first time together, remember...
[Gabriella nods]
Troy Bolton: Like kindergarten.

Gabrilla Montez: Well, I guess I better go find my Mom and wish her a "Happy New Year."
Troy Bolton: Right, me too. Not your mom, my mom... and dad.

Gabrilla Montez: Did you ever feel like there was a whole other person inside you just looking for a way to come out?
Taylor: No. Not really.

[first lines]
Mrs. Montez: Gabby, it's New Year's Eve. Enough reading.
Gabrilla Montez: But mom, I'm almost done!
Mrs. Montez: The teen party? I've laid out your best clothes. Come get ready.
Gabrilla Montez: Can I have my book back?

Taylor: The answer is yes!
Gabrilla Montez: Huh?
Taylor: Our Scholastic Decathlon team has its first competition next week and there is certainly a spot for you!
Gabrilla Montez: Where did those come from?
Taylor: Didn't you put them in my locker?
Gabrilla Montez: Of course not...
Taylor: Well, we'd love to have you on the team! We meet almost everyday after school. Please?
Gabrilla Montez: I need to catch up on the curriculum here first before I think about joining any clubs.
Sharpay: [walking over] Well, what a perfect way to get caught up. Meeting with the smartest kids in school! What a generous offer, Taylor!

Troy Bolton: [after Homeroom] Hey.
Gabrilla Montez: I don't...
Troy Bolton: Believe it.
Gabrilla Montez: Well me...
Troy Bolton: Either. But how?
Gabrilla Montez: Well my mom's company transfered her here to Alberquerque.

Gabrilla Montez: [singing] I thought you were my fairy tale / A dream when I'm not sleeping / A wish upon a star that's coming true.

Gabrilla Montez: [to Taylor] I heard what he had to say. I'm on your team now, done.

Gabrilla Montez: How well do you know Troy Bolton?
Taylor: Troy? Well, I don't consider myself an expert on that particular sub-species. But, unless you know how to speak cheerleader, as in...
[walks up to a group of cheerleaders]
Taylor: "Ohmygosh, isn't Troy Bolton just the hottie superbomb?"
[cheerleaders swoon over Troy]
Taylor: See what I mean?
Gabrilla Montez: [laughs] I guess I don't know how to speak cheerleader!
Taylor: Which is why we exist in an alternate universe from Troy the basketball boy.

Troy Bolton: Hey! How how you doing?
[Gabriella ignores him]
Troy Bolton: Well, listen, there's something I want to talk to you about.
Gabrilla Montez: [interrupts Troy] and here it is. I know what it's like to carry a load with your friends. I get it. You've got your boys, Troy. It's okay. So we're good.
Troy Bolton: [looking confused] Good about what? I was gonna talk to you about the final callbacks.
Gabrilla Montez: I don't wanna do the callbacks either. I mean who are we trying to kid? You've got your team and now I've got mine. I'll do the scholastic decathlon and you win the championships. It's where we belong.
[pulling something out of her locker]
Gabrilla Montez: Go Wildcats.
Troy Bolton: [still confused] But I...
Gabrilla Montez: [cuts him off] Me neither.
[walks away]
Troy Bolton: [even more confused than before] Gabriella?


High School Musical 2 (2007) (TV)
[after hearing about the staff not being allowed to perform in the talent show, Gabriella confronts Sharpay]
Gabriella Montez: Sharpay! Forget about the rest of us, how about the fact that your brother has worked extremely hard on this show?
Sharpay Evans: Oh boo-hoo, he'll be in the show, he'll do his celebrity impersonations. Don't lecture me about Ryan, given the way you've been interfering with Troy's future.
Gabriella Montez: What?
Sharpay Evans: You've gotten him written up by Fulton for sneaking on the golf course and swimming after hours. I had to step in just to save Troy's job.
Gabriella Montez: I'm not interested in what you think you're doing for Troy, that's between you and him. But you're messing with my friends and my summer and that's not okay with me.
Sharpay Evans: You don't like the fact that I won.
Gabriella Montez: What's the prize? Troy?
[Troy walks up behind Gabriella and hears the rest]
Gabriella Montez: The Star Dazzle award? You have to go through all this just to get either one? No thanks, Sharpay. You're very good at a game that I don't want to play. So, I'm done here. But you better step away from the mirror long enough to check the damage that will always be right behind you.
Sharpay Evans: [upset and mad] *Girls*!
[Sharpay walks off and as Gabriella goes to walk away, Troy runs up]
Troy Bolton: Hey! What do you mean you're done here? I mean, you can't quit.
Gabriella Montez: Us working together sounded good, but plans change and people change. The club talent show was a big deal for Sharpay and evidently for your future, so it's cool, just make it happen, wear your new Italian shoes.
Troy Bolton: Hey, I'm still me.
Gabriella Montez: Blowing off your friends, missing dates, if that's you, then it's good to know.
Troy Bolton: No, no, no. I was only doing that because I'm working on the scholarship thing and you know that.
Gabriella Montez: But if along the way you act like someone you're not, pretty soon that's who you become.
Troy Bolton: I meant what I said about movies, and summer, and just being together.
Gabriella Montez: I'm sure you did, at the time. But I also meant what I said: that I want to remember this summer, but not like this, Troy.

Sharpay Evans: [after falling in the pool and in an angry voice] What are you doing here?
Gabriella Montez: I'm the new lifeguard.

Gabriella Montez: [lifts light] Here's to our future
Troy Bolton: No. Here's to right now.
[they both lean in to kiss]

Troy Bolton: [singing] What about us? What about everything we've been through?
Gabriella Montez: [singing] What about trust?
Troy Bolton: [singing] You know I never wanted to hurt you!
Gabriella Montez: [singing] What about me?
Troy Bolton: [singing] What am I supposed to do?
Gabriella Montez: [singing] I gotta leave, but I'll miss you...

Gabriella Montez: My mom said summer jobs are good on college applications.
Troy Bolton: All part of the frightening concept called our future.

Troy Bolton: ...I promise.
Gabriella Montez: Promise is a really big word, Troy.

Troy Bolton: I always liked the idea of being in charge of my future, until it actually started happening.
Gabriella Montez: So, let's just think about right now.

Ryan Evans: Hey, my Dad says you're doing a great job with the Red Hawks.
Troy Bolton: [nods] Uh, yeah... playing with them is like being in a different world.
Gabriella Montez: Well you missed out on a fun night.
[Ryan imitates swinging a baseball bat]
Gabriella Montez: It was a great game.
Ryan Evans: But the dessert afterwards had to be the best part... her mom makes the best brownies in the entire world...
Troy Bolton: [interrupts] Ya, I know... I've had them...

Sharpay Evans: [as Gabriella walks by] Gabriella. I understand you've moved every summer for the past five years, and I'd hate to think today is
[trying to supress a smile]
Sharpay Evans: ... goodbye.
Gabriella Montez: No worries. My mom promised I'm here until graduation next year.
Sharpay Evans: ...Bless Mom's little heart.

Gabriella Montez: So you coming to the baseball game?
Ryan Evans: I'm not staff. Wasn't invited.
Gabriella Montez: Hey, everyone's invited. Come on hop in.

Kelsi Nielson: [singing] Na, na, na, na. Na, na, na, na. Yeah / You are the music in me. / You know the words "once upon a time" / Make you listen, there's a reason.
Kelsi Nielson, Gabriella Montez: [singing] When you dream there's a chance you'll find / A little laughter, or happy ever after.

Ryan Evans: [surprises Gabriella at the pool] Lookin' good.
Gabriella Montez: [turns to see Ryan] Wow, Wildcat!
Ryan Evans: Too much?
Gabriella Montez: Um... only in daylight.
[laughs]
Gabriella Montez: East High colors. Very impressive.
Ryan Evans: Hey, be true to your school right?
Gabriella Montez: Absolutely. Everyones excited about doing the show.
Ryan Evans: Hey, look, I know everyone thinks that I'm Sharpay's... poodle, but I really think that I could...
Gabriella Montez: Hey, if they were thinking that, they're not thinking that today. How do you do that swing step you did last night?
Ryan Evans: Oh that's easy.
[starts to dance with her and they laugh, then Troy shows up]

Troy Bolton: Your summer activities consultant has arrived.
Gabriella Montez: Hopefully some of those activities will include a job.
Troy Bolton: Hey, whatever happens, as long as we're together, it's cool, right?
Gabriella Montez: You promise?
Troy Bolton: Here's my promise.
[Puts the T necklace on Gabriella]
Gabriella Montez: T as in Troy?
Troy Bolton: Well, I... Yeah.
Troy Bolton: [They're about to kiss but some kid comes up to Troy with a year book] Hey man, how's it going?
[Signs book]
Troy Bolton: There you go, boss.
[Leans in to kiss Gabriella again]
Chad Danforth: [Interrupts] Hoops. Let's go.
Troy Bolton: [Motions to himself and Gabriella] Yeah, cause we're not busy or anything.


High School Musical 3: Senior Year (2008)
Troy Bolton: [on the phone with Gabriella] Hey! I just showed my mom the tux.
Gabriella Montez: We need to talk. I can't be a little adult right now, Troy. I'm hoping you understand that.
Troy Bolton: No, don't even say that. Gabriella, prom is in two days. You're supposed to be on a plane right now.
Gabriella Montez: It's taken me two weeks to get used to being away from you. From East High and all my friends.
Troy Bolton: I know. I know.
Gabriella Montez: So what? I come back, go to prom, and leave again? And when its graduation I'll leave again.
Troy Bolton: That was our plan.
Gabriella Montez: I don't think I can do it Troy. I think I've run out of goodbyes.
Troy Bolton: Why do you keep saying "goodbye"?
Gabriella Montez: I love you, wildcat. But I need to stay right where I am. I'm sorry.
[she hangs up]
Troy Bolton: Gabriella... She's not coming back, man.
Chad Danforth: Shes gonna miss the prom?
Troy Bolton: No, she's not coming back at all.
Chad Danforth: Wow. That's lousy, man.

Troy Bolton: I figured you'd be the last one out of the building.
Gabriella Montez: I don't believe this.
Troy Bolton: I took a wrong turn on the way to prom. So did you.
Gabriella Montez: You are so crazy, Wildcat. And what is it with you and trees?
Troy Bolton: I guess I see things clearly from up here.
Gabriella Montez: Well, you look handsome. Prom is tonight in Albuquerque, 1000 miles away.
Troy Bolton: [he jumps down from the tree] My prom is where ever you are.
[he pulls out a corsage]
Troy Bolton: If I'm gonna have a last dance at East High, it's gonna be with you.
[he puts it on her wrist]

Gabriella Montez: [all sung] Troy!
Troy Bolton: Right now I can hardly breathe.
Gabriella Montez: Oh, you can do it just know that I believe.
Troy Bolton: And thats all I really need.
Gabriella Montez: Then come on!
Troy Bolton: Make me strong! It's time to turn it up. Game on!

Gabriella Montez: I guess my heart just doesn't know it's in high school.

Gabriella Montez: [In the tree house] So, another "top secret hiding place"?
Troy Bolton: [laughs] You're the second girl I've ever had up here.
[Gabriella looks upset]
Troy Bolton: The first was my mom. She only climbed up here to get me down.
Gabriella Montez: [laughs] Well I'm honored. This place is so cool.
Troy Bolton: Yeah me and my dad built it.
Gabriella Montez: So is that the coach from U of A down there?
Troy Bolton: Yeah. I mean he's at my house. Crazy.
Gabriella Montez: I bet he's already got your name on a locker.
Troy Bolton: It's always been my dad's dream. Now I'm gonna end up at his alma mater... Did I just say that?
Gabriella Montez: You know, my mom and I have been talking about Stanford University pretty much since I was born
Troy Bolton: Hey, you're already in. That's so cool.
Gabriella Montez: Except she won't stop talking about it. It's embarrassing.
Troy Bolton: Come on. She's proud of you. I'm proud of you.
Gabriella Montez: The thing about Stanford is that it's a thousand and...
Troy Bolton: [interrupting] Fifty-three miles from here. I know.
[taking her hand]
Troy Bolton: Suddenly it seems like the rest of the school year is coming at us so fast.
Gabriella Montez: I wish it would all just stop. At least just slow down.

Chad Danforth: [Chad and Troy walk into the room where Taylor and Gabriella are editing the yearbook. Chad sets a pan of brownies in front of Taylor] Those are compliments of Zeke. Be Careful, they're still hot.
Taylor McKessie: Okay.
Troy Bolton: But he doesn't tknow they're gone yet, so you have to eat all the evidence.
Gabriella Montez: Kissing up to the yearbook editors. It's a very smart move.
Troy Bolton: Well, Chad's hoping for two pages on himself. And maybe even a third page, just for his hair.
Chad Danforth: Hey, what's right is right.
