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'm a lot better at saying goodbye than you.
Troy Bolton: Why are you saying goodbye?

Gabriella Montez: But you're messing with my friends, 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? The star dazzle award? You have to go through all of this just to get either one? No thanks, Sharpay, you're very good at a game that I don't wanna 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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

You're a cool guy, Troy. But not for the reasons your friends think.

Gabrilla Montez

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!
