Les: Pinch a penny, someone's slacking.
Jan: Do I look like a milkmaid, 'cause somebody feels like a cow.

Isis: Where we come from, 'cheer' is not a word you hear very often...
Lava: They should call us 'inspiration leaders' instead.
Jenelope: Ooo, that's deep... I like that
Lafred: Look, I don't know why we writin to some talk show host. It's like we begging for charity or somethin'
Isis: It's not charity. Pauletta's from our neighborhood. She'll understand why we need the money.
Lafred: [laughing] tell her we need to buy doughnuts. Her big butt'll understand that.

Big Red: This season should've been gravy, ok? I handpicked the squad, I delivered an idiot-proof routine... Now, Platter... nationals, hello?
Torrance Shipman: Don't you mean a stolen routine?
Big Red: Don't be so naive, Torrance. Look, the truth is I was real hitter, ok? I did what I had to do to win a nationals. And ever since I handed the reins over to you, you've run my squad straight into the ground! If I made any mistake as a squad leader, it wasn't borrowing cheers. It was announcing you as my successor.

Cliff: I begged my mom for a brother.
Torrance Shipman: He'd look a little ridiculous in that bikini, wouldn't he?

We need to save our show from people who don't know the difference between a Tony Award and Tony Hawk.

Sharpay

Sharpay: Toodles.
Troy Bolton: Toodles.

Gabrilla Montez: [about singing previously] 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.

Ryan: Wow an Einstinette. So why do you think she is interested in our musical?
Sharpay: I'm not sure that she is... But we needn't concern ourselves with amatures. But... there is no harm in making certain that Gabriella is welcome to school activities that are... well, appropriate for her. After all... she loves pi.

Zeke: [after Sharpay walks through the hall] I guess the ice princess has come back from the North Pole.
Chad: And back from what she always does.
Basketball team: Wheres that?
Chad: Shopping for mirrors.
Basketball team: Ooooh.

Troy Bolton: The audition's been moved to the same day as the game?
Gabrilla Montez: And the school decathlon!
Taylor: Why would they do this?
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: [sighs] Miss Darbus may think she's protecting the show, but Ryan and Sharpay are only concerned with protecting themselves.
Chad: Do you know what I'm gonna do to those two overgrown showdogs?
Troy Bolton: Nothing. We're not gonna do anything to them. Okay, this is only going to work if we work together... So who's in?

Mr. Danforth! This is a place of learning, not a hockey arena.

Ms. Darbus
