High School Musical (2006) (TV)
Mrs. Bolton: Did we really fly all this way just to play more basketball?
Jack Bolton, Troy Bolton: Yeah.

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.

The Basketball team: From our team to yours.
[Spelled out on their T-shirts]
The Basketball team: G-O-D-R-A-M-A-C-L-U-B
Troy Bolton: Exclamation point.
Ms. Darbus: Well, looks like us Wildcats are in for an interesting afternoon.
Ryan: [Trying to read the shirts] Go, go-go dray, go drame?
[Sharpay scoffs and walks away]
Ryan: Drame?

Sharpay: When's the big game?
Troy Bolton: Uh, two weeks.
Sharpay: You are so dedicated, just like me. I hope you come watch me in the musical. Promise? Toodles.
Troy Bolton: Toodles.

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.

Chad: Look, you're a hoops dude. Not a musical singer person. Have you ever seen Michael Crawford on a cereal box?
Troy Bolton: Who's Michael Crawford?
Chad: Exactly my point. He was the "Phantom of the Opera" on Broadway. Now my mom, she's seen that musical 27 times and she put Michael Crawford's picture in our refrigerator. Not on it. IN it. So my point is, if you play basketball, you'll end up on the cereal box. If you sing in musicals, you'll end up in my mom's refrigerator.
Troy Bolton: Why would she put his picture in your refrigerator?
Chad: I don't know, one of her crazy diet ideas. Look, I don't attempt to understand the female mind, Troy.
Chad: [Miss Fallstaff, the librarian, appears] It's frightening territory.
[Troy sits down at a table and takes out a pencil and a piece of paper]
Chad: How can you expect the rest of us to be focused on a game when you're off somewhere in leotards singing 'Twinkle Town'...
Troy Bolton: [cutting off Chad] No one said *anything* about leotards.
Chad: Not yet my friend, but just you wait.
Troy Bolton: [Gives Chad a really weirded out look]
Chad: [Miss Fallstaff appears] I tried to tell him, Miss Falstaff. I really did.
Troy Bolton: [Looks like he's thinking]

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.

Troy Bolton: Okay, now we will only be able to do this if we all work together.

Troy Bolton: I'll sing with her.
[meaning Gabriella]
Ms. Darbus: Troy Bolton? Where is your sports posse, or whatever you call it?
Troy Bolton: Uhh, team.

Troy Bolton: Dad, did you ever think about trying something new, but were afraid of what your friends might think?
Jack Bolton: What, you mean like going left? You're doing great!

Chad: Look, that music in those shows isn't hip-hop, okay, or rock, or anything essential to culture. It's all show music. It's all costumes and makeup... oh, dude, it's frightening.
Troy Bolton: Yeah, I know. I just thought it would be a good laugh.

Troy Bolton: Hey! How's it going? So anyways
[Troy starts talking and we are unable to hear what he's saying]
Jason: Dream? Do you remember the night before?
Troy Bolton: No, all I remember is like pink jelly.

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.

Ms. Darbus: [She is denying Troy and Gabriella the chance to perform their song, as she called their names twice and they didn't respond. She sees everyone from the basketball game and scholastic decathlon filing into the theater to watch them sing] I... don't know what's going on here, but in any event, it is far too late, and we have not got a pianist.
Ryan Evans: [Smugly] Well, that's show biz.
Troy Bolton: We'll sing without a piano.
Kelsi: [Runs back onstage] Oh no you won't. Pianist here, Ms. Darbus.
Sharpay Evans: You *really* don't want to do that.
Kelsi: [Steps up to Sharpay] Oh yes, I *really* do.
[Runs back to the piano]
Kelsi: Ready on stage!
Sharpay Evans: [Shocked] Oh!
Ms. Darbus: [Impressed] Now *that's* show biz!

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!

Chad: Hey, the whole team's htting the gym for free period, what do you want us to run?
Troy Bolton: I can't - I, uh, have to catch up on, uh, homework.
Chad: What? It's only the second day back, even I'm not even behind on homework yet. And I've been behind on homework since preschool.
Troy Bolton: [laugh] That's hilarious. I'll catch you later?

Troy Bolton: Sharpay's kinda cute too.
Chad: Yeah, so is a mountain lion, but you don't pet it.

Chad: What spell has this elevated IQ temptress girl cast that suddenly makes you wanna be in a musical?
Troy Bolton: Look, I just did it. Who cares?
Chad: Who cares? How about your most loyal best friend?

Troy Bolton: Should I go for it? I better shake this. Yikes.

Troy Bolton: What's up?
Chad: What's up? Oh let's see, um, you miss free period workout yesterday to audition for some heinous musical, and now suddenly people are confessing. Yeah, Zeke, Zeke is baking. Crème brûlée.
Troy Bolton: Oh. What's that?
Zeke: Oh, it's a creamy custard-like filling with a caramelized surface, it's really satisfying.
Troy Bolton: Oh, cool.
Zeke: Shut *up*, Zeke!

Troy Bolton: So dude, you know that school musical thing? Umm, is it true you get extra credit just for auditioning?
Chad: Who cares?
Troy Bolton: You know it's always good to get extra credit, for... college.
Chad: Do you ever think Lebron James or Shaquille O'Neil auditioned for their school musical?
Troy Bolton: Maybe?

Troy Bolton: Dad, detention was my fault. Not hers.
Jack Bolton: You haven't missed a practice in three years. That girl shows up...
Troy Bolton: [interrupts] That girl is named Gabriella. And she's very nice.
Jack Bolton: Well, helping you miss practice doesn't make her very nice. Not in my book, or your team's.

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.

Troy Bolton: And you're not gonna hear me sing, guys, 'cause Gabriella won't even talk to me. And I don't know why.
Chad: Um, we do.
Zeke: [taking something out of his lunch bag] Here, I baked this fresh this morning. You might want to try some before you hear the rest.

Chad: [interrupting Troy and Gabriella's kiss] The team voted you the winning ball.
[shoves it in Troy's arms]
Troy Bolton: Thanks, thanks a lot man.

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.

Troy Bolton: She has an amazing voice.
Ms. Darbus: Perhaps the next musicale.

Troy Bolton: [laughs] Now that's impossible.
Sharpay: [coming out from behind the sign up sheet] What's impossible, Troy? I wouldn't think "impossible" was even in your vocabulary.

Jack Bolton: [in denial about the fact Troy wants to sing] You're the playmaker... not a singer... right?
Troy Bolton: Did you ever think that maybe I could be both?
[drops basketball and leaves, passing his surprised father and friends]

Troy Bolton: I thought you were my friends! Win together, lose together, teammates.
Chad: But suddenly the girl and the singing.

Troy Bolton: [faking excitement after the Scholastic Decathalon reveals their 'surprise' for the basketball team] Oh... an equation.

Troy Bolton: [after Gabriella takes the ball and starts walking around with it] That's travelling. No, that's really bad travelling.

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.

Troy Bolton: [singing] Coach said to fake right and break left / Watch out for the pick and keep an eye on defense / Gotta run the give and go and take the ball to the hole / And don't be afraid to shoot the outside "J" / Just keep your head in the game / Just keep ya head in the game.

Troy Bolton: [singing] I gotta get my, get my head in the game.
The Basketball team: [singing] You gotta get'cha, get'cha, get'cha, get'cha head in the game.

Troy Bolton: [Unaware that he's being watched by Gabriella] You're my guys and this is our team. Gabriella is not important. I'll forget about her. I'll forget the audition and we'll go out and get that champion for the team. Everybody happy now?
Taylor: Behold lunkhead basketball man.

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)
Troy Bolton: Dad, do I seem different to you this summer?
Jack Bolton: You dress a lot better, that's for sure.

[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.

[after the Evans family hit the golf balls in random directions and walk off]
Chad Danforth: Where did it...
Troy Bolton: I have no idea.

Chad Danforth: Next time I see Country Club Princess, I'm gonna launch her and her pink cart straight into the lake.
Troy Bolton: I'll build the ramp, buddy.

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: [British accent] How shall we get the food today, chap?
Chad Danforth: [British accent] Hmm, I don't know. Perhaps skipping?
Troy Bolton: [British accent] Ah! Very well then.
Chad Danforth: [links arms with Troy, still using British accent] Shall we?
Troy Bolton: [skipping with Chad] Hipty skipty. Hipty skipty. Hipty Skipty. Hipty Skipty.
Chad Danforth: [during Troy's 'hipty skipty' chant, while skipping along side him] Bom Bom Bom! Bom Bom Bom! Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom Bom

Troy Bolton: Dude, Ms. Darbus has snapped her cap!
Chad Danforth: Dude, you're actually listening?

Troy Bolton: Hey! Why did you switch songs?
Sharpay Evans: [confused] Switch songs? What?
Troy Bolton: Yeah, Ryan said...
Mr. Fulton: [interrupts] Bolton!
[Fulton rushes Troy onto the stage]
Sharpay Evans: But I didn't learn a new song.
Ryan Evans: [smirking] Exactly.

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...

Troy Bolton: What was the first thing you said to me when I started working here?
Sharpay Evans: Bring me more iced tea?

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: [Approaches a kid hitting the ground with the club] Good job, killer, make the ball fear you.

Troy Bolton: [after Sharpay dumps out her pink golf balls] Cool balls.

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.

Troy Bolton: How's your show going?
Sharpay Evans: How's it going? This show makes the captain of the Titanic look like he won the lottery.

Mr. Fulton: Danforth. Bolton. You're caddying today. Fourty dollars a bag. You've been requested.
Chad Danforth: What?
Troy Bolton: By who?
Chad Danforth: Dude, who cares? For 40 bucks, I'd caddy for Godzilla.
Mr. Fulton: Close. Very close.

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...

Kelsi Nielson: Okay. Everyone. Ryan, the show's on.
Ryan Evans: Where's the music?
[Kelsi hands him the music]
Ryan Evans: Where's Troy?
Troy Bolton: [Walks in] Talked to Sharpay, everything's cool.
Ryan Evans: Hey, speaking of my sister, she wants you to learn a new song.
[Hands Troy the music]
Troy Bolton: [Reading the music] 'Everyday'.
[a beat. Troy realizes what this means]
Troy Bolton: I can't learn a *new* song!
Ryan Evans: Kelsi will help you with it.
Troy Bolton: What?
Troy Bolton: [Grabs Troy's arm and pulls him into the other room] Come on!
Troy Bolton: Hey!
Ryan Evans: [to the Wildcats] It's showtime!

Troy Bolton: [to Gabriella] Whatever happens, long as we're together, it's cool, right?

Chad Danforth: Suddenly, I'm beginning to miss detention with Ms. Darbus. How sick is that?
Troy Bolton: Come on, we got a hoop out back, two free meals a day, and we only have to wear these stupid outfits on duty.

Troy Bolton: [Trying to get away; Distracting her] I *love* your shoes.
Sharpay Evans: [Squeals] You like 'em?
Troy Bolton: I really do.
Sharpay Evans: [Looks down to admire her shoes] I bought them in New York. I have them in nine colors.
[Looks up to see that Troy has disappeared]
Sharpay Evans: Girls, again from the top!

Troy Bolton: [to Gabriella] So maybe today we could have our...
Sharpay Evans: Troy!
Troy Bolton: [to Gabriella] Ah, what time is your lunch break?
Sharpay Evans: Troy!

Sharpay Evans: I think we were meant to sing together, don't you?
Troy Bolton: [Pictures Sharpay in a wedding dress] I need some air.

Sharpay Evans: [Screams so loudly so the entirety of Lava Springs hears her] What do you mean you're not doing the show?
Troy Bolton: Exactly that.
Sharpay Evans: We're singing a duet, Troy! A duet means two people! Well mostly me in this case but whatever! Duet!
Troy Bolton: I'm an employee. Employees aren't allowed in the show.
Sharpay Evans: No, no, no, no. No, no. You're an honorary member.
Troy Bolton: Not any more. I asked Fulton for my kitchen job back.
Sharpay Evans: What?
Troy Bolton: Sharpay, I don't like the way you've been treating my friends. And I don't like the way I've way I've been treating them either, so I'm doing something about it.
Sharpay Evans: An entire table of University boosters are coming to see you, thanks to me.
Troy Bolton: So I'll be their waiter. They'll be thrilled.
Sharpay Evans: Troy, Troy. This could change your life!
Troy Bolton: I'm more interested in what my friends think of me. And what I think of myself.
Sharpay Evans: Oh, we can hold hands around the campfire some other time! Right now we got a show to do.
[Grabs Troy's arm to make him follow her]
Troy Bolton: [Pulls away and points at her] No. You've got a show to do. I got a kitchen to clean.
[Walks away]

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.

Mr. Fulton: The water bugs are back.
Troy Bolton: Look, Mr Fulton, this was my idea, she had nothing to do with it.
Mr. Fulton: I generously overlooked your previous break violation, but then came the golf course jaunt, and now this. Two strikes. Don't get a third. Out of the pool.

Mrs. Bolton: [Walks in to the boys playing basketball in the kitchen and corrals them] Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Can we all redirect this energy by carrying in the groceries?
Jason Cross, Troy Bolton, Jack Bolton, Chad Danforth, Zeke Baylor: Yes, Mrs. Bolton.


High School Musical 3: Senior Year (2008)
[from trailer]
Sharpay Evans: Hey, Troy, when's the big game?
Troy Bolton: Yesterday.
Sharpay Evans: Well, good luck. Toodles!

Chad Danforth: So I guess when they hand us that diploma, we're actually done here.
Troy Bolton: What makes you think we're getting diplomas?

Troy Bolton: [Troy and Chad have just finished pushing Troy's truck back to his house] I'm saving up for a new fuel pump.
Chad Danforth: [aggravated] Mhm, save faster!

Troy Bolton: East High is a place where teachers encouraged us to break the status quo and define ourselves as we choose. Where a jock can cook up a mean crème brulee, and a brainiac can break it down on the dance floor. It's a place where one person, if it's the right person, changes us all. East High is having friends we'll keep for the rest of our lives, and that means we really are 'all in this together'. Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat!

Chad Danforth: What are you gonna do if Julliard says yes?
Troy Bolton: I don't know.
Chad Danforth: That's not what I wanted to hear.

Troy Bolton: [singing] The way we play tonight is what we leave behind. It all comes down to right now it's up to us. So what are we gonna be? T-E-A-M Team! Gotta work it out turn in on!

Troy Bolton: I've never even heard of Julliard.
Ms. Darbus: Well, that may be the case, Mr. Bolton, but evidently Julliard has heard of you.

Troy Bolton: My prom is wherever you are.

Troy Bolton: [singing] This is the last time to get it right. This is the last chance to make it all night. We gotta show what we're all about, work together. This is the last chance to make our mark. History will know who we are. This is the last game so make it count. It's now or never.

Troy Bolton: [to Ryan about Sharpay] You're easier to dance with than her.

Troy Bolton, Chad Danforth: [singing] The boys are back! The boys are back! The boys are back, gonna do it again, gonna wake up your neighborhood.

Chad Danforth: [Embarrassed about asking Taylor to prom in the middle of the lunchroom. Practically whispering] So, uh, hey. I was kinda wondering if you'd maybe go with me.
Taylor McKessie: Oh, hey Chad. They have tuna surprise on the menu. It's good. Really good.
Chad Danforth: [to Troy] Dude.
[Troy shrugs]
Chad Danforth: Taylor, hey, I'm, I'm asking you to prom.
Taylor McKessie: Oh, I'm sorry, I can't hear you 'cause it's so loud in here.
[to Kelsi]
Taylor McKessie: Did you hear something?
Kelsi Nielsen: No.
Martha Cox: Neither did I.
Chad Danforth: [to Troy] Dude.
Troy Bolton: Okay, uh,
[to the students in the lunchroom]
Troy Bolton: excuse me. Excuse me, everybody.
Chad Danforth: What are you...
Troy Bolton: Uh,
[Screams]
Troy Bolton: *yo*!
[Everyone quiets down and looks at them]
Chad Danforth: [In shock that he has everyone's attention] Oh.
Troy Bolton: My friend has something to say.
Chad Danforth: [Climbs up on a table] Taylor McKessie, will you *please* be my date to the Senior Prom?
Taylor McKessie: [Leans in with Gabriella, Kelsi and Martha, talking quietly. After a moment, she stands] I'd be honored!
[Hugs him, then starts talking excitedly with the girls]
Chad Danforth: [to Troy as they're walking away] Dude, I need to go shoot some hoops, or something.
Troy Bolton: [Claps him on the back] You nailed it, man!

Troy Bolton: [Hands Chad flowers] The garden club is rooting for you.
[Chad goes to take them, but Troy pulls them back, making Chad give him the basketball first]

Troy Bolton: You know, I'm not the only one that changed when you came to East High, kids that I just used to pass in the hallway, we're friends now, and we're supposed to be doing this show together. The problem is East High changed when you got there and now it's changed again because you left. You might be ready to say good bye to East High, but East High is not ready to say good bye to you.

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.

Coach Jack Bolton: [Troy and Chad are shooting hoops in the gym] Danforth! Bolton! You get out there and get onstage!
Troy Bolton: Never thought I'd hear my dad say that...

Troy Bolton: [talking to basketball team] Who washed their lucky socks? Out lucky socks that we've worn for three straight play-off games...
[hits shoe]
Troy Bolton: ... games that we won!
Chad Danforth: Mine never left my locker all season.
Troy Bolton: Jason?
Jason Cross: [shrugs] I keep mine in my lunch bag.
Troy Bolton: Zeke?
Zeke Baylor: I vacuum pack mine.
Troy Bolton: There's my team.

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]

Kelsi Nielsen: [Whistles from the Orchestra pit] Hoops man, over here. You look like you're having the time of your life.
Troy Bolton: I'm messing up the dances, I'm messing up all the songs. I'm sorry.
Kelsi Nielsen: It's all of us. All of us pretty much know why. If it wasn't for Gabriella, this musical would be just another "Sharpay Show." It'll be fine.

Chad Danforth: One question: does Berkley play?
Troy Bolton: Oh yeah. We're scheduled to kick some Redhawk butt next November.
Chad Danforth: Game on, hoops.
Troy Bolton: Yeah.

Ms. Darbus: And now a senior who I believe has a decision to make, Mr. Troy Bolton. Troy.
Troy Bolton: [Troy steps forward] I've chosen Basketball.
[the crowd cheers]
Troy Bolton: But I've also chosen theatre.
[the crowd cheers more]
Troy Bolton: The University of California Berkeley offers me both. That's where I'm going to be attending next fall... But most of all, I choose the person who inspires my heart. Which is why picked a school which is exactly thirty two
[Troy turns and faces Gabriella]
Troy Bolton: point seven miles from you.
[Gabriella takes his his and moves forward and stands next to Troy]
Troy Bolton: Miss Gabriella Montez, Stanford University. Pre-law.

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: [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.
