Miss Darbus: Mr. Danforth, this is a place for learning not a hockey arena. There is also a final sign-up for next week’s scholastic decathlon competition. Chem. club president can answer all your questions about that. (Troy ring Gabriella) Miss Darbus: Ah the cell phone menace has returned to our crucible of learning Miss Darbus: Sharpay & Ryan cell phones (Sharpay gasps) Miss Darbus: we have zero tolerance for cell phones in class miss Motez cell phone. And welcome to east high we will get to know each other in detention Mr. Bolton I see your phone is involved we will see you in detention as well Chad: No that’s not even possibility Miss Darbus your honour, see cos we have basketball practice and Troy… Miss Darbus: Ah that’s 15 minutes for you too.

Well my mom’s company Transferred her here to Albuquerque I can?t believe you live here I looked for you at the lodge but you weren?t there! Troy: (whispering)We had to leave first thing Gabriella: Why are you whispering? Troy: What? oh, uh…my friends know about the snow boarding but I haven’t quite told them about the(whisper)singing thing. Zeke: What’s up?
Troy: Hey! Gabriella: Too much for them to handle? Troy; No, no it was cool, but you know my friend’s it’s not what I do it was like another person so uh welcome to east high. well, now you’ve met miss Darbus I bet you can’t wait to sign-up for that. Gabriella: I won’t be signing up for a while I just wanna get to know the school, but if you sign up I?d consider coming to the show. Troy: Yeah, that’s completely impossible. Sharpay:what’s impossible troy? I wouldn’t even think “impossible? is even in your vocabulary. oh so nice of you to show your new classmate around oh uh were you going to sign up too my brother, Ryan & I have starred in all the school productions and we really welcome newcomers. there are a lot of supporting roles. I?m sure we could find something for you. Gabriella: No, no, no I was just looking at all the bulletin boards! there?s a lot going on at this school. wow! oh nice penmanship! Sharpay: so Troy, I missed you in the holidays what’d you do? Troy: you know um…played basketball, snowboarding, more basketball Sharpay: so when’s the big game? Troy:2 weeks Sharpay: You are so dedicated just like me. I hope you can come watch me in the show. Promise me?(Troy nods)toodles! (wave) Troy: Toodles Troy: Hey! dude you know that school musical thing? as a treat don’t you get extra credit? Chad: So what who cares? Troy: Well it’s always good to get extra credit…for college Chad: Show music it’s all make-up and costumes(shiver) dude, it?s frightening. Troy: Yeah I know. I thought it’d be a good laugh. you know sharpay’s kinda cute too Chad: yeah so is a mountain lion. but you don’t pet it. Troy: ALL RIGHT WILDCAT’S! PAIR UP! Let’s go! come on! (get’cha head in the game song) Sharpay: So it seemed you knew troy Bolton. Gabriella: Not really. he was just showing me around well, Troy usually doesn?t interact with new student’s.
Gabriella: uh why not? Sharpay: Oh it?s, pretty much basketball 24/7 with him Gabriella: That should be 16 over pi… Teacher: Yes miss Montez Gabriella: Oh I?m sorry I was just…uh…shouldn?t the second equation read 16 over pi? Teacher: 16 over pi? That’s quite impossible. I stand corrected. oh and welcome aboard! Ryan: Troy Bolton was looking at our audition list. Sharpay: Again? You know he was hanging around here earlier with the new girl and they were both looking at the list, there’s something freaky about her, where did she say she was from? Ryan: Wow an einsteinette. so why do you think she’s interested in the musical? Sharpay: I?m not sure she is. and after all we needn’t concern ourselves with amateurs. but… there is no harm in making certain that Gabriella?s welcome to school activities that are…well appropriate for her. After all… she loves pi. Miss Darbus: Gold more gold! Paint, paint let’s go! Taylor: The answer is yes Gabriella: Huh? Taylor: Our scholastic decathlon team has it’s first competition next week and there is certainly a spot for you. Gabriella: Where did those come from? Taylor: Didn’t you put these in my locker? Gabriella: Of course not. Taylor: Well, we’d love it if you joined our team. We meet almost everyday after school. please? Gabriella: I need to catch up on the curriculum here before I think about joining any clubs. Sharpay: Well, what a perfect way to get caught up meeting with the smartest kids in school, what a generous offer Taylor Miss Darbus: So many new faces in detention today. I hope you don’t make a habit of it. But the drama club could always use an extra hand. And while we are working, let us probe the mounting evils of cell phones Coach: Come on, guys, huddle up! We got two weeks to the big game. Where?s troy and Chad? Don’t make me ask again. Where?s Troy and Chad?!
All: Detention Miss Darbus: Perhaps the most heinous example of cell phones abuse is ringing in the theatre. What temerity! The theatre is a temple of art. A precious cornucopia of creative energy. Coach: Where?s my team, Darbus? What the heck are those two doing in a tree? Miss Darbus: It?s called crime and punishment, Bolton. Besides, prominently to the art?s is cleansing into the soul. Coach: Can we have a talk, please? And you two, in the gym, now! If they have to paint sets for detention, they could do it tonight, not during my practise Miss Darbus: If those were performers, would you seek special treatment? Coach: Darbus, we are days away from our biggest game of the year. Miss Darbus: And we, Bolton, are in the midst of our auditions for our winter musicale as well! This school is more than just young men in baggy shorts flinging? balls for touch downs! Coach: Baskets, they shoot baskets! Headmaster: Stop! Guys, listen, you?ve been having this argument since you both started teaching here. We are one school, one student body, one facility! Can we not agree on that? So, coach, How?s the team lookin?? Troy got em? whipped into shape? Coach: West high knights have knocked us out of the playoffs three years running, and we are one game away from taking that championship right back from ?em! It?s time to make our stand. The team is you. You are the team and this team does not exist unless each and every one of you is fully focused on our goal. Am I clear? Chad: Hey, what team?! All: Wildcats!(x3) All: wildcats! Get your head in the game! Taylor: We?ve never made it past the first round of the scholastic decathlon. You could be our answer. Gabriella: I?m focusing on my studies this semester, and help my mom get the new house organised. Maybe next year. But what do you know about troy Bolton? Taylor: Troy? Hmm. I?m not an expert on that particular subspecies, however, unless you speak cheerleader, as in, ?oh my gosh! Isn?t troy Bolton just the hottie super-bum?? Cheerleader: Oh, he?s so beautiful. Taylor: See what I mean? Gabriella: I guess I don?t know how to speak cheerleader!
Taylor: This is why we live in an alternative universe to troy the basketball boy. Gabriella: Have you tried to get to know him? Taylor: Watch how it works tomorrow when you have lunch with us. Unless you?d rather sit with the cheerleaders and discuss the works of firm nail beds. Gabriella: my nail beds are history. Taylor: Sister! Coach: I still don?t understand this whole detention thing. Troy: It was my fault sorry, dad Coach: Cross court. You know Darbus will take any opportunity to bust my chops. That includes yours too. Troy: Hey, dad? Did you ever want to try something new, but were afraid of what your friends might think? Coach: Like, going left? Your fine. Come on Troy: Well? no. I mean, what if you wanna try something really new and it?s a total disaster and all your friends laugh at you. Coach: Then maybe there not your friends. That was my whole about team today. You guys gotta look out for each other. You?re the leader. There?s gonna be college scouts at our game next week. Know what scholarship is worth these days? Troy: loads! Coach: Yeah. Focus, troy, come on. Miss Darbus: I expect we all learned our homeroom manners yesterday, people, correct? If not, we have some dressing rooms that need painting. Now, a few announcements. This morning during free period will be your chance for the musicale auditions, both single and pairs. I will be in the theatre until noon for those of you bold enough to extend the wingspan of your creative spirit. Chad: When?s she due back on the mother ship? Discussing the importance of Shakespeare? what?s up, man? Troy: what?s up? Chad: The team?s hitting the gym during free period. What should we run? Troy: I can?t make it. I gotta catch upon some homework. Chad: What? Hello, it?s only the second day back. I?m not even behind on homework yet. And I?ve been behind on homework since preschool. (Both laugh Troy: That?s hilarious I?ll catch you later.
(puts arm out to stop Chad and walk off) Chad: Huh homework there?s no way. (Follow him) Troy: How?s it going? Jason: Just hanging out? Good to see you
But you were always there beside me (Beside me) Miss Darbus: Well that was just? very disturbing go see a counsellor. Uhh. Next! Gabriella: hey! So you decided to sign up for something?
Chad: What?s he doing? Troy: uh? no. you? Basket ball person: (shake hands) hey!(walk in room troy walk off teacher walk past coach walk past and look for troy walk past car man) Troy: Short-cut. Late for class (hide behind a mop) Miss Darbus: That?s good just leave it here(troy hide while auditioneer?s miss Darbus claps x3) This is where the true expression of the artist is realized. (Kelsey appears on stage)where inner truth is revealed through the actors journey?(bell like a cell phone]was that a cell phone?! Alan: Is it mine? Kelsi: No, ma?am. That was the warning bell. Miss Darbus: Ah! Those wishing to audition must understand that time is of the essence. We have many roles to cast and final call-backs will be next week. First, we will sing a few bars and I will give you a sense of whether or not the theatre is your calling. Better hear it from me than your friends later. Our composer, Kelsi Neilson, will accompany you and be available for rehearsals prior to call-backs. Shall we? First auditioneer: [singing)it?s hard to believe that I couldn?t see you were always right beside me this feeling likes no other I want you to know Miss Darbus: Uh-huh. Yes, thank you. Next! Alan:[singing]It?s hard to believe that I couldn?t sneeze?see that you were always there next to?beside me Miss Darbus: Alan, I admire your pluck. As to your singing? Alan:?like no other Miss Darbus: That?s a wonderful tie your wearing. Next! Second auditioneer: It?s hard to believe that I couldn?t see you where always there beside me this feelings like no other I want you to know Miss Darbus: Ugh?stop. Cindra:.. So lonely before I finally found what I?ve been looking? for Miss Darbus: ah? Cindra. What courage to pursue a note that hasn?t been accessed in the natural world. Bravo! Uh brava! Perhaps the spring musicale. Third auditioneer:[ballet dance then fall over] Punks: it?s hard to believe that I could not see (See) That you were right beside me (Beside me) Thought I was alone (Alone) With no one to hold (To hold) Gabriella: no. um? why are you hiding behind a mop? [Troy laugh and push behind him] your friends don?t know you?re here, right? Troy: right. Fourth auditioneer: huh Miss Darbus: Thank you. Next! [Run of] Troy: Miss Darbus is a little… harsh. Gabriella: The wildcat superstar?s afraid? Troy: No! I?m not afraid, i?I?m just?. Scared. Gabriella: Me too? usually. Miss Darbus: and the lead roles for Minnie and Arnold we only have one pair signed up. Sharpay and Ryan it might be useful for you to give us a sense of why we gather in this hallowed hall. Kelsi: What key? Ryan; Oh we had our rehearsal pianist do an arrangement. Kelsi: Oh. Both: Burr, burr Sharpay: Go (it?s hard to believe song) I told you not to do the jazz squares Ryan: It?s a crowd favourite. Everybody loves a good jazz square. Miss Darbus: Well? are there any last-minute sign-ups? Kelsi: Oh, actually, if you do the part with that particular song I imagined it much slower Sharpay: ha if we do the part Kelsi, my sawed-off Sondheim, I?ve been in 23 school productions. And how many of your compositions have been selected? Kelsi: This would be the first. Sharpay: Which tells us what? Kelsi: Uh, that I need to write you some 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 can lift your music out of it?s obscurity. Are we clear? Kelsi: Yes, ma?am. I mean Sharpay. Sharpay: Nice talking to you. Miss Darbus: Any last minute sign-ups? No? good, Done. Gabriella: I?d like to audition, Miss Darbus. Miss Darbus: Timeliness means something in the world of theatre, Young lady. The individual auditions are long, long over and there are simply no other payers. Troy: I?ll sing with her. Miss Darbus: Troy Bolton? Where is your sports posse or whatever It?s called? Troy: Team. Miss Darbus: Ah. Troy: But I?m here alone. Well actually, I?m here to sing with her. Miss Darbus: Yes, well, we take these shows very seriously here at east high. I called for the pairs audition and you didn?t respond. Free period is now over. Troy: She has an amazing voice. Miss Darbus: Perhaps the next musical. Troy: So, you?re the composer? You wrote the song Ryan and Sharpay just sang? And the entire show? Well, that?s really cool. I uh can?t wait to hear the rest of the show. So why are you so afraid of Ryan and Sharpay? I mean, it is your show. Kelsi: It is? Troy: Isn?t the composer of a show kind of like the playmaker in basketball? Kelsi: Playmaker? Troy: You know the one who makes everyone else look good. Without you there is no show. You?re the playmaker here, Kelsi. Kelsi: I am? Do you wanna hear how the duet?s supposed to sound? (Hard to believe reprise) Troy: That?s nice. Miss Darbus: Bolton, Montez you have a call-back. Kelsi, give them the duet from the second act. Work on it with them.
Kelsi: All right. If you guys wanna rehearse, I?m usually here during free period and after school, and even sometimes during biology class. You can come and rehearse anytime. Or you can come to my house for breakfast. I have a piano, we can rehearse there. After school before school whatever works. After basketball class. Troy: What? Sharpay: call-back?!! Aah!!!!!!!! Ryan: Call-back for roles next Thursday, 3:30pm Ryan and Sharpay Evans Gabriella Montez and Troy Bolton. Sharpay: Is this some kind of joke? They didn?t even audition! Chad: What?s wrong? What Sharpay: Uhh! How dare she sign-up! I already picked out the colours for my dressing room. Ryan: and she hasn?t even asked our permission to join the drama club somebody?s gotta tell her the rules. Ryan: Exactly. And what are the rules? Sharpay: Ohh! [stick to the status quo song] Gabriella:Why is everybody staring at you? Taylor: Not me you Gabriella: Because of the call-backs, I can?t have people staring at me I really can?t Sharpay:Aah!!!!!!!! Gabriella: I am so sorry Chad: You do not want to get into that man too much drama Zeke: Yeah Miss Darbus: What is going on here? Sharpay: That Gabriella girl just dumped her lunch on me! On purpose! It?s all part of their plan to ruin our musical. And troy and his basket ball robots are obviously behind it. Why do you think he auditioned? After all the hard work you?ve put into this show it just doesn?t seem right. Troy: What?s up? Chad: What?s up? Oh let?s see? um you missed free-period work-out to audition for some heinous musical. And now suddenly people are confessing. Yeah,and Zeke. Zeke is baking? cr?me brulee. Troy: Oh what?s that? Zeke: Oh, it?s creamy custard with a caramelized surface. It? s really satisfying.
Chad: Shut up, Zeke! Look? do you see what?s happening here, man? Our team is coming apart because of your singing thing. Even the drama geeks think they can? talk to us. Look the skater dudes are mingling Skater dude: Yo! Chad: Suddenly people think that they can do other stuff. Ok stuff that?s not there stuff. Your thinking about show tunes, when we?ve got a playoff game next week. Miss Darbus: All right. Cards on the table right now. Coach: Huh? Miss Darbus: You?re tweaked because I put your stars In detention and now were getting even. Coach: What are you talking about, Darbus? Miss Darbus: Your all-star son turned up at my audition. Now, I give every student an even chance, which is a log and honourable tradition in the theatre. Something you wouldn?t understand. But, if he is planning some sort of practical joke in my chapel of the arts? Coach: Troy doesn?t even sing. Miss Darbus: Oh, well you?re wrong about that. But I will not allow my twinkle town musicale to be made into farce. Coach: Twinkle town? Miss Darbus: see? I knew it! Coach: Hey? Miss Darbus: I knew it! Coach: Sounds like a winner. Good luck on Broadway! Gabriella: Is Sharpay still really, really mad at me? I said I was sorry. Taylor: look no one has beaten out Sharpay for a musical since kindergarten. Gabriella: I wasn?t trying to beat anyone out. We didn?t even audition, we were just singing. Taylor: You won?t convince Sharpay of that. Believe me if that girl could play both Romeo and Juliet, her own brother would be aced out of the job. Gabriella: Have you ever felt like there?s a whole other person inside of you just looking for a way to come out? Taylor: not really. No. Ugh come on let?s go. Zeke: hey, Sharpay, I thought since Troy Bolton?s gonna be in your show?
Sharpay: Troy Bolton is not in my show. Zeke: ok, um? well, I thought you could come watch me play basketball sometime Sharpay: I?d rather stick needles in my eyes Zeke: well, wouldn?t that be awfully uncomfortable Sharpay: evaporate tall person Zeke: I bake? if that helps! Gabriella: wow! It?s like a jungle up here. Troy: Yeah, just like that cafeteria. Gabriella: Well, I just humiliated myself into the next century. Troy: No! No come on. Gabriella: So this is your private hideout? Troy: yeah. Thanks to the science club. Which means my buddies don?t know it exists? Gabriella: you pretty much have the school wired, don?t you, troy? Seems to me everyone on campus wants to be your friend. Troy: I guess, but not if we lose the championship. Gabriella: Well, I?m sure it?s tricky being the coach?s son. Troy: Makes me practise a little harder, I guess. I don?t know what he?ll say about the singing. You know, my parent?s friends are always saying, your sons the basketball guy. You must be so, so proud. Some times I don?t want to be the basketball guy. I just wanna be a guy. You know? Gabriella: I saw the way you treated Kelsi at the audition yesterday. Do your friends know that guy? Troy: To them, I?m the playmaker dude so no not really. Gabriella: They don?t know enough about you, Troy. At my other schools I was the freaky math girl. It?s cool coming here and being? anyone I wanna be. When I was singing with you I just felt like? a girl. Troy: You look like one, too. Gabriella: do you remember in kindergarten how you?d meet a kid and know nothing about them. Then ten seconds later you play like you?re best friends because you didn?t have to be anything but yourself. Gabriella: Well singing with you felt like that. Troy: I never thought about singing. That?s for sure. Till you.
Gabriella: So you wanna do the call-backs? Troy: Hey, just call me freaky call-back boy. Gabriella: you?re a cool guy, troy. But not for the reasons your friends think. And thanks for showing me your top-secret hiding place. Like kindergarten. Troy: (singing) were soarin?, flyin?? (stop start again)there?s not a star in heaven? Gabriella: (singing) creating space between us… Till were separate hearts There?s not a star in heaven that we can?t? Troy: flyin? there?s not a star in heaven that we can?t reach Coach: Let?s go guys! Make it sharp! To the chest, come on! Pop it! Come on, guy?s. Step with it! Let?s go! Come on, move it! Let?s go! Come on, guy?s focus! Focus! Get your head in the game! Move it! to you seen troy? Jason: No?coach Coach: Again, let?s go! That?s it guys. Let?s hit the showers. Good hustle. Let?s see that in the game. Troy: I, uh… Think I?m gonna stay a while. Work on some free throws. Coach: Well, since you missed practise, I think your team deserves a little effort from you today. Gabriella: Wow. So this is your real stage. Troy: I guess you can call it that. Or just a smelly gym. Whoa! You didn?t tell me your good at hoops, too. Gabriella: You know, I once scored 41 points at a league championship game. Troy: No way. Gabriella: mm-hm. Yep and the same day I invented the space shuttle and microwave popcorn. Troy: oh! Microwave popcorn. Ha-ha. Very funny. Gabriella: I?ve been rehearsing with Kelsi. Troy: Me, too. And, by the way, I missed practise, so if I get kicked off the team it?ll be on your conscience. Gabriella: Hey, I wasn?t the one who told you to? Troy: Gabriella, chill. Hey that?s travelling no that?s really bad travelling. Coach: Miss! I?m sorry, this is closed practise. Troy: Dad, practice is over. Coach: Not till the last player leaves the gym team rule.
Gabriella: Oh, I?m sorry, sir. Troy: Dad, this is Gabriella Montez. Coach: Ah, your detentions buddy. Gabriella: I?ll see you later, troy. Nice meeting you, coach Bolton. Coach: You too Miss Montez! Troy: Dad, detention was my fault, not hers. Coach: You haven?t missed practise in tree years. That girl shows up? Troy: That girl is named Gabriella. And she?s very nice. Coach: Helping you miss practise doesn?t make her very nice. Not in my book. Or your team?s book. Troy: Dad, she?s not a problem. She?s just a girl. Coach: But you?re not just a guy, troy. You?re the team leader. What you do affects not only this team, but the entire school. And without you completely focused, were not gonna win next week. The championship games-they don?t come along all the time. There something special Troy: Yeah, a lot of things are special, dad. Coach: But you?re a playmaker? not a singer, you know everyone knows that, right? Troy: Did you ever think maybe I could be both? Chad: Let?s go. What spell has this elevated-IQ temptress girl cast that suddenly makes you wanna be in a musical? Troy: Look, what I just did it. Who cares? Chad: Who cares? How about you?re most loyal best friend? Library keeper: Quiet in here, Mr Danforth. Chad: It?s him Miss Falsaff, not me. Look you?re a hoops dude, not a musical singer person. Have you ever seen Michael Crawford on a cereal box? Troy: 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 put Michael Crawford?s picture in our refrigerator. Yeah, not on it, in it. So my point is, if you play basketball you?re gonna end up on the cereal box. If you sing in musicals, you? ll end up in my mom?s refrigerator. Troy: Why would she put his picture in her refrigerator? Chad: One of her crazy diet idea?s look I don?t attempt to read the female mind troy. It?s foreign territory. How can you
expect the rest of us to be focused on the game if you?re off somewhere in leotard?s singing twinkle town Troy: No on said anything about leotards. Chad: Ah not yet, my friend, but just you wait. Look we need you, captain big time. Library keeper: Mr Danforth. Chad: I tried to tell him, Miss Falsaff really tried. Sharpay: Something isn?t right. Chad: Hey, look… we need to talk Taylor: Go on! Ryan: They must be trying to figure out a way to make sure troy and Gabriella beat us out. Now the jocks rule most of the school, but if they get troy into a musical, then they?ve conquered the entire student body. Sharpay: And if those science girls get Gabriella hooked up with troy Bolton, the scholastic club goes from drool to cool. Ryan, we need to save our show from the people who don?t know the difference between Tony award and Tony hawk. Taylor: Do you think that?s gonna work? Chad: It?s the only way to save Troy and Gabriella from themselves. So we on? Taylor: Yeah. Chad: Good. So we start tomorrow then. Taylor: Ok, the first thing. Chad: Nice. Let?s go. Taylor: Cool Chad: So, my watch is 7:45 mountain standard time. We synched? Taylor: Ok whatever. Chad: Then we?re on go mode for lunch, 12:05. Taylor: Yes, Chad, were a go. But were not Charlie?s angels, ok? Chad: I can dream can?t I? Spider Bill Netrine, class of 72. He was the MVP in the league champion ship game. Zeke: Sam Nedler, class of 02. Also known as Sammy slamma jamma captain, MVP of the league championship team.
Jason: The thunder clap hap hadden 95 led the wildcats to back-to-back city championships. A legend. Chad: Yes. Legends, one and all. But do you think that any of these wildcat legends became legends by getting involved in musical auditions days before the league championships? All: Get your head in the game! Chad: No! These wildcat legends became legends because they never took their eye off the prize. All: Get your head in the game! Chad: Who was the first sophomore ever to make starting varsity? All: Troy! Chad: Who voted him our team captain this year? All: Us! Chad: And who is gonna get there sorry butts kicked in Fridays championship game if Troy?s worried about an audition? All: We are Troy: Guys, come on. There are 12 people on this team, not just me. Chad: Just 12? Oh, no I think your forgetting about one very important 13th member of our team. Troy: My dad. Chad: Yes, troy. Wildcat champion, class of 1981. Champion, father, and now coach. It?s a winning tradition like no other. Taylor: From lowly Neanderthal and cro-mangnon, to early warriors, medieval knights. All leading up to? lunkhead basketball man. Yes our culture worshiped the aggressor throughout the ages and we end up with spoiled, overpaid bonehead athletes who contribute little to civilization other than slam dunks and touchdowns that is the inevitable world of troy Bolton. But the path of the mind, the path we?re on, ours is the path that has brought us these people: Eleanor Roosevelt, frida Kahlo, Sandra day O?Connor, Madame Curie, Jane goodall, Oprah Winfrey and so many others who the world reveres. Gabriella: uh, but what is?? I?ve got Kelsi waiting for me to rehearse. Taylor: Gabriella! Troy Bolton represents one side of evolution. And our side, the side of education and accomplishment is the future of civilization! This is where you belong. Troy: Guys, if you don?t know that I?ll put a 110% of my guts into that game, then you don?t know me.
Chad: But we just thought? Troy: I?ll tell you what I thought. I thought you?re my friends win together; lose together, team-mates. Chad: But suddenly the girl… and the singing. Troy: Man I?m for the team! I?ve always been for the team she?s just someone I met. Alright, the singing thing is nothing. A way to keep my nerves down. It means nothing to me. You? re my guy?s and this is our team. Gabriella is not important. I? ll forget about her, forget the audition and we?ll get that championship. Everyone happy now? Taylor: Behold lunkhead basket ball man. So, Gabriella, we?d love to have you for the scholastic decathlon. Did you wanna grab some lunch well, we?ll be there if you wanna come. All of the basketball boys: wildcats! Get your head in the game! Whoo! Let?s go! Go, wildcats! Cheerleaders: Troy, Troy, Troy? [When there was me and you song] Troy: Hey, how you doin?? I wanna talk to you about something. Gabriella: And here it is I know what it?s like to carry a load with your friends. I get your boys, troy it?s ok. So we?re good. Troy: Good about what? I wanna talk about the final callbacks. Gabriella: I don?t wanna do the call-backs either. Who are we trying to kid? You?ve got your team and I?ve got mine I?ll do the scholastic decathlon and you?ll win the championships. It?s where we belong. Go, wildcats Troy: But I? Gabriella: Me neither Troy: Gabriella? People: Go wildcats! Chad: Hey, captain! Jason: What?s with troy? Chad: Don?t worry about it. Taylor: Oh, hey! Chad: Troy! Hey. Jason: Hey, troy! Chad: Hey, um? we just had another team meeting. Troy: Oh? wonderful.
Chad: We had a team meeting about how we haven?t been acting like a team. I mean us, not you. About the singing thing? Troy: I don?t even wanna talk about it. Chad: We just want you to know that we?re gonna be there. Cheering for you Troy: Huh? Zeke: if singing is what you wanna do, we should boost you up, not tear you down. Chad: yeah. Win or lose, we?re team mates. That?s what we?re about. Even if you turn out to be the worst singer in the world. Jason: Which we don?t know, because we haven?t actually heard you sing. Troy: And your not gonna hear me sing, guys. Because Gabriella won?t even talk to me? and I don?t know why. Chad: We do. Zeke: I baked these fresh today. You probably want to try one before we tell you the rest. Taylor: Gabriella, we were jerks. No, we were worse than jerks because we were mean jerks. We thought that troy and the whole singing thing was killing our chances of having you on the scholastic decathlon team. Gabriella: I heard what he had to say. I?m on your team now. Done. Taylor: No, not done. We knew that Chad could get troy to say things to make him want to forget about the call-backs. We planned it, and we?re embarrassed and sorry. Gabriella: No one forced troy to say anything. And you know what? It?s ok. We should prepare for the decathlon now, it?s time to move on. Taylor: No It?s not ok the decathlon is whatever, but how you feel about us, and even more, troy? that?s what really matters. We tried. Troy:[to self] Hi, uh? just came to say I?m sorry. Hi, miss Montez, I?m troy Bolton. Gabriella?s mum: Oh, troy! Um? Gabriella is kind of busy with homework and such, so now?s not a good time. Troy: I made a mistake, Miss Montez, and I would really let Gabriella know that. Could you tell her I came by to see her? Gabriella?s mum: I will? troy. Good night? Troy Troy: Good night. Thank you.
Gabriella: Hello? Troy: What you heard the other day, none of that is true. I was sick of my friends riding me, so I said things to shut them up. I didn?t mean any of it. Gabriella: You sounded pretty convincing to me Troy: The guy you met on vacation is way more me than the guy who said them stupid things. Gabriella: The whole singing thing is making the school whack. You said so yourself. Everyone?s treating you differently because of it. Troy: Maybe I don?t wanna only be the basket ball guy. Gabriella: But your dad? Troy: It?s not about my dad. It?s about how I feel, and I?m not letting the team down. They let me down. So I?m gonna sing. How about you? Gabriella: I don?t know, troy. Troy: Well, you need to say yes. Because I brought you something. Gabriella: What do you mean? Troy: turn around. This could be the start of something new it feels so right to be here with you? oh and now lookin? in your eyes I feel in my heart the start of something new it?s a pair audition. Coach: Whoo. Troy: Yeah!
Sharpay: We have to do something. Ok, our call-back is on Thursday and the basketball game and scholastic decathlon are on Friday. Too bad all these events weren?t happening on the same day? at the same time. Ryan: well, that wouldn?t work out. because then troy and Gabriella wouldn?t be able to?I?m proud to call you my sister. Sharpay: I know. I don?t want to hear any more about that Montez girl. Miss Darbus: So if your telling me as co-presidents of the drama club that changing the call-backs would be best for our theatre program, then I might actually agree with you. Ryan: So is that a yes?(Sharpay wink) Sharpay: bop bop bop, up to the top and wipe away your inhibitions stomp stomp stomp do the romp and strut your stuff bop bop bop, straight to the top? Chad: No problem at all. It was crazy, man. Troy: Call-backs the same time as the game? Gabriella: And the scholastic decathlon. Taylor: Why would they do that? Chad: I smell a rat named Darbus. Kelsi: Actually it?s two rats, neither of them named Darbus. Chad: Do you know something about this, small person? Kelsi: Miss Darbus thinks that she?s protecting the show, but Ryan and Sharpay are only concerned with protecting themselves and my name is Kelsi I play the piano. Chad: Do you know what I?ll do to those two show dogs?
Gabriella: Zn4, and by doing that, you end up with two? got it Taylor and science girl: Yes! Zeke: What?s happening? Gabriella: You guys, come here. Go ahead and put five grams of this in, and that causes it to change from acidic state. Causing the colour to change from pink to blue. Just like pH strips. Oh, gotta go. See you guy?s later! Troy: Whoa! You?re late! Both: ? strength to believe Gabriella: soarin? Troy: flyin? Both: there?s not star in heaven that we can?t reach if we?re tryin? yeah, we?re breakin? free Ryan: Wow. They sound good Troy: like a wave the ocean just? Troy: nothing. We?re not gonna do anything to them. Except sing, maybe. Alright this is only gonna happen if we all work together. Now who?s in? Jason: you know I?m in. Troy: a pi pie. Gabriella: oh, my gosh Taylor: oh, my goodness! Both: What? Thank you! Taylor: Oh, we have something for you too. Gabriella: Yeah, come here look, look. Both: Ta-da! Troy: oh? it?s an equation.
All: Oh! Troy: That?s awful! Chad: Stay right there. Watch. From our team to yours G-O-D-R-A-M-A-C-L-U-B. Troy: Exclamation point. Miss Darbus: Well, it seems we wildcats are in for an interesting afternoon. Ryan: go? god? dray? go? dray?drame Sharpay: ugh! Ryan: Drame? Coach: How you feeling? Troy: Nervous. Coach: Yeah, me too. Wish I could suit up and play along side of you. Troy: Hey, you had your turn. Coach: You know what I want from you today? Troy: The championship. Coach: Well, that?ll come or it won?t. What I want for you is to have fun. I know all about the pressure. Probably too much of it has come from me. Because what I really want is to see my son having the time of his life playing the game we both love. You give me that, and I will sleep with a smile on my face no matter how the score turns out. Troy: Thanks, coach? uh I mean? dad. Headmaster: Welcome to the tenth annual scholastic decathlon. The east high wildcats versus the west high knights. Miss Darbus: Hello! Right here, right here.

Headmaster: For this game between east high and west high! Miss Darbus: casting the leads of a show is both a challenge and a responsibility. A joy and a burden. I commend you and al other young artists to hold out for the moon, the, sun and the stars. Shall we soar together? Sharpay and Ryan! [bop to the top song] Wildcats: Wildcats! Headmaster: The coveted championship trophy! East high wins the opening tip, pushing the ball up the court. East high! Taylor: We did it! Gabriella: Great job! Taylor: Alright, wildcats, time for an orderly exit from the gym. Headmaster: And west High pushes the ball around the perimeter on the offensive end. Nice movement by west high. Driving the lane? the shot is up and? we seem to be experiencing some technical difficulties. We?ve got a time on the court here. We have a problem. Stop the game. Stop the game. Referee has signalled out timeout. Everyone please remain calm. Scholastic leader: What is that stench? Headmaster: We?ll get this figured out real soon. In the meantime, per safety regulations, we all need to make an orderly exit from the gym, please. Thank you. Sharpay: Oh, hi call me! Miss Darbus: Do you see why we love the theatre, people? Well done! Ah, Troy Bolton, Gabriella Montez. Troy? Gabriella? Kelsi: They?ll be here. Miss Darbus: The theatre, as I have often pointed out, for no one. I?m sorry. Well we are done here. Congratulations to all. The cast list will be posted. Troy: No wait! Miss Darbus, wait! We?re ready to sing. Miss Darbus: I?ve called your names, twice. Gabriella: Miss Darbus, please! Please! Miss Darbus: Rules are rules!
Sharpay: We’ll be happy to do it again for our fellow students. Miss Darbus. Miss Darbus: I don’t know what’s going on here, but in any event, it’s far too late and we have not got a pianist. Ryan: Well, that’s show biz. Troy: We’ll sing without a piano. Kelsi: Oh, no, you won’t. Pianist here, Miss Darbus. Sharpay: You really don’t wanna do that. Kelsi: Oh, yes, I really do. Ready on stage. Miss Darbus: Now that’s show biz. Gabriella: I can’t do it troy, not with all these people here [walk off] Troy: hey, hey, look at me, right at me. Right at me. Remember the first time we sang together. Remember? Like kindergarten [breaking free song) Taylor: whoo! That was amazing! Chad: Amazing, uh yeah! Headmaster: And west high pushin? The ball fast breaks looking for an open man. Oh, but it’s but it’s stolen by number 14 heading back the other way! East high has the ball! Time is running down the clock! Looking for an open man. Fake. Swing to the outside. Ball on the perimeter. Looks nice from the inside. Nice screen. Shoots up! And it good! A 12-foot jump shot as time expires for the victory! East high has won the championship! Your east high wildcats are champions! Congratulations, east high! All: troy! Troy! Troy Other coach: Congratulations! Coach: Thanks. Coming through!

You’re going with me to the after-party, right? Taylor: like on a date? Chad: Must be you’re lucky day. Taylor: Chad just asked me out. Sharpay: Well, congratulations Gabriella. I guess I’ll be the understudy in case you can’t make a show, so? Break a leg. In theatre that means good luck. Zeke: Sharpay! I baked you some cookies. Sharpay: Ew. Ryan: Nice game oh thanks Troy: Composer, here’s your game ball. You deserve it, playmaker. All: Yeah! (We’re all in this together) Sharpay: These cookies are genius! The best thing I’ve ever tasted! Will you make some more for me, Zeke? Zeke: Okay! I might even make you a crème brulee.
