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.

[Hands Chad flowers] The garden club is rooting for you.

[singing] The boys are back! The boys are back! The boys are back, gonna do it again, gonna wake up your neighborhood.

Troy Bolton, Chad Danforth

[to Ryan about Sharpay] But you are easier to dance with than she is.

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!

[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.

My prom is wherever you are.

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.

[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!

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.

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!

Sharpay Evans: Hey, Troy when's the big game?
Troy Bolton: Yesterday.
Sharpay Evans: Well good luck. Toodles!
