Ryan Evans, Kelsi Nielsen: [together] -a hundred different directions...
Ryan Evans: But whatever happens...
Ryan Evans, Kelsi Nielsen: [together] I know I've got you.
Ryan Evans: It's beautiful.
Kelsi Nielsen: Thanks.
Ryan Evans: No, I mean really, this, the prom number, everything... it's, it's going to be a great show.
[beat]

Ryan Evans: [key change, singing] You're on my mind, you're in my heart...

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.

Ryan Evans: [to Troy and Gabriella after their rehearsal] Pity the actor that has to follow you.
Kelsi Nielsen: I believe that actor is *you*, Mr. Choreographer.

High School Musical (2006) (TV)
Ms. Darbus: [bell rings] Was that a cell phone?
Kelsi: [quietly] No ma'am, that was the warning bell.
Ms. Darbus: Aah.

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]

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!

Kelsi: Oh, actually, if you do the part with that particular song, I imagined it much slow...
Sharpay: *If* we do the part?
[laughs]
Sharpay: Kelsi, my sawed-off Sondheim, I've been in seventeen school productions. And how many times have your compositions been slipped in?
Kelsi: This would be the first.
Sharpay: Which tells us what?
Kelsi: That I need to write you more solos?
Sharpay: No. It tells us that you do not offer direction, suggestion, or commentary. And you should be thankful that me and Ryan are here to lift your music out of its current obscurity. Are we clear?
Kelsi: Yes ma'am. I mean, Sharpay.
Sharpay: Nice talking to you.
