Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez met over winter break when they were forced to sing together at a party. They became friends, although they expected not to see each other again until Gabriella’s mother’s company transferred her to another home in Alburquerqe, New Mexico, where Troy lives. As Troy and Gabriella end up at the same school, it had come to their attention to audition for their school’s musical. And as an unexpected fate turned out, Troy and Gabriella earned a call back along with Sharpay and Ryan Evans, the two actors who’ve been in every school musical, and the whole school makes the biggest deal out of it. The Scholastic Decathlon team and the Wildcats planned to stop both Troy and Gabriella from joining the musical, and found out later that it was the worse plan. Troy and Gabriella were back up in the callbacks to find that the decathlon and basketball is the same time as the callbacks pushed back by Ryan and Sharpay Evans who are scared of the competition. Only the wise kids could manipulate the score board and the liquid formula that had helped Troy and Gabriella up in the callbacks and had wowed the audience including their parents and friends.
Quotes from the Movie
Gabrilla Montez: When I was singing with you, I felt like just a girl.
Troy Bolton: You even look like one too!
Gabriella Montez: Yeah, and on the same day I invented the space shuttle and microwave popcorn.
Gabrilla Montez: Well, you sound like you’ve done a lot of singing, too.
Troy Bolton: Yeah, my showerhead is very impressed.
Gabrilla Montez: The Wildcats’ superstar is… afraid?
Troy Bolton: No, no, I’m not afraid. I’m just… scared.
Gabriella Montez: You’ve got your team, and now I’ve got mine. I’ll do the Scholastic Decathalon, and you win the Championship. It’s where we belong. Go Wildcats.
Gabriella Montez: I can’t do this Troy. Not with all these people staring at me.
Gabriella Montez: Do you remember in kindergarten, how you’d meet a kid, and know nothing about them, then 10 seconds later you’d be playing like you were best friends, because you didn’t have to be anyone but yourself?
Chad: So, you’re coming with me to the after-party, right?
Taylor: As in, like, a date?
Chad: Must be your lucky day.
