I'm pushing.


- You better be.
- I'm pushing!


- Push harder!
- Chad, tree!


Home sweet home.


- I'm saving for a new fuel pump.
- Mm-hm. Save faster.


Hey, turn it up, Kels.


- How you doing, girl?
- I'm good!


- Great comeback!
- Thanks.


- Watch that tail. It's dangerous.
- You know it!


- Amazing! We won!
- I didn't think they'd come back.


Hey!


- Congratulations!
- Thanks. Can I fix you a plate?


- I want one of everything!
- Are we celebrating?


What's up, Hoops?


- Back-to-back champions!
- Yeah, thanks.


Coach, got a couple
of empty lockers at U of A?


Hopefully not for long.


Charlie Danforth
will suit up next season.


Front row seat will be fine.


That teamwork I saw tonight, that assist
where you gave up the final shot,


that's the kind of players
I'm looking for.


We're going to see you
in Redhawk uniforms?


- Done deal.
- Amen to that.


- Go have some fun.
- OK.


- Congratulations, Troy!
- Hey! Thanks.


- Yo!
- Hey, dude!


Sweet game!


Hey, Troy. Great house, bro.
Your room is way cool.


Thanks, man. You were in my room?


Well, yeah. I just took a picture. Look.


- I'm doing mine the same way.
- Great.


We should hang out tonight.
Get to know each other or something.


I just gotta grab the championship
trophy I left it in my truck.


- Don't sweat it! I'm on it!
- OK.


Hi!


So, another top-secret hiding place?


You're the second girl I've had up here.


The first was my mom.


She only climbed up here to get me down.


Well, I'm honored.
This place is so cool.


Me and my dad built it.


That the coach
from U of A down there?


- Yeah. He's at my house.
- Yeah.


Crazy.


I bet he's already got
your name on a locker.


It's always been my dad's dream. Now
I'm going to end up at his alma mater.


Did I just say that?


My mom and I have been talking about
Stanford pretty much since I was born.


And you're already in. That's so cool.


Except she won't stop talking
about it. It's embarrassing.


Come on. She's proud of you.


I'm proud of you.


The thing about Stanford
is it's a thousand and fifty...


...fifty-three miles from here.


I know.


It suddenly seems like the rest
of the school year is coming so fast.


Yeah. I wish it would all just stop.


At least just slow down.


Can you imagine what would happen


If we could have any dream?


I'd wish this moment
was ours to own it


And that it would never leave


Then I would thank that star


That made our wish come true


Oh, yeah


'Cause he knows that where you are


Is where I should be too


Right here


Right now


- Right now
- I'm looking at you


And my heart loves the view


- 'Cause you mean everything
- Everything


Right here


I promise you somehow


Somehow we're gonna


Tomorrow can wait
for some other day to be


To be, but right now
there's you and me


Oh, we know it's coming


And it's coming fast


It's always you and me


- So let's make every second last
-


Make it last


'Cause right here


Right now


Yeah, I'm looking at you


And my heart loves the view


'Cause you mean everything


Right here


I promise you somehow


That tomorrow can wait


For some other day to be


To be, but right now
there's you and me


- You and me
- You and me


You and me


But right now there's


You and me


Is this a pirate's wheel?


No.


Very cute.


I haven't played
with Robo-Rob since third grade.


- I'm Robo-Rob. I am...
- Don't break him. Don't break him.


- That's Chad's.
- Sure it is.


Now it's just like kindergarten.


Troy? You have guests.


Don't make me come up there
and get you again. Hi, Gabriella.


We'll be right down, Mom.


She really will come up here
if we don't go down.


Oh, OK.


Right there, right there. OK,
come on through. Come on. There you go.


Wow.


Hey, Troy.


So, when's the big game?


Uh, yesterday.


Oh, well. Good luck.


- Wow.
- She's so sweet.


What are you? I mean, who are you?


Good morning, Ms. Evans. I'm Tiara Gold.


I transferred
to East High from London


and I noticed on the board you're
in need of a personal assistant.


Yeah, with finals, prom, graduation,


I need someone tracking
my appointments and assignments.


Most important, I need someone
to run lines for the musical.


- That's a theater term for...
- Learning your role. I understand.


It's best to keep
science and math books together,


since those are
first lessons of the day.


How do you know my schedule?


I took the liberty of checking,
simply to make certain


I'd have your nonfat, no-foam,
soy latte ready for free period.


- One packet of sweetener?
- Organic.


I'll e-mail you my wardrobe choices each
morning so that our outfits won't clash.


If you own any orange, get rid of it.


By the way, like the accent.


It's... sweet.


Troy, my brother.
Can I have your gym locker?


- What?
- Like starting next week.


I'll be running the team next season
and it'll help me out with the guys.


- Yeah, why didn't I think of that?
- I don't know.


Tardy again. Later, bro!


Are you serious?


What about her... Hey.


All right, everyone. Settle down.


We are all excited about our Wildcats'


- top-to-bottom championships.
- That would be "back-to-back. "


Whatever the case,
it was a grand slam. Well done!


And our student body president
and co-editor of the yearbook,


Taylor McKessie,
has important announcements.


Senior trip committee meets tomorrow
and reports Thursday to prom committee,


headed by Martha.
Pick up your tickets from her.


This year's theme is "The Last Waltz. "


But don't be last to pick up tickets.


Graduation committee convenes Monday.
Picture deadline is Thursday


and finals study groups alternate
with all of the above. Questions?


What's the lunch special
in the cafeteria?


New York deli. Anyone else?


Moving on. Ms. Sharpay Evans, four-term
president of the drama club,


spring musicale report.


Well, with prom, finals,
everyone is so busy.


I was thinking
I'd select something modest.


Perhaps even a one-woman show.


A little light on the sign-ups, Kelsi?


No. We're actually doing pretty well.


Well, well, well.
Almost the entire homeroom.


How inspiring!


I will happily see all of you
at free period to discuss the show


and to make a very special announcement.


I'll be retaking my finals two or three
times. I'm moving into the library.


I'm working on my truck every day.


I've got five recipes
for Family Science final.


We've got a yearbook to edit, so no.


Sorry! Jeez. I thought since it was the
last show, everyone would want to do it.


- You're wrong.
- We just don't have time.


Hey. Hey, you guys, listen up.
Kelsi's right. We should do this.


This is our last chance
to do something together.


All of us. Something really fun.


Oh, yippee.


So, what do you say, Wildcats?


No, I still don't think
it's a good idea.


- Guys, come on! It's our senior year!
- Troy.


We're all in this together.
This is our senior year.


I'm in.


What?


- It will be fun.
- Yes!


- Oh, boy.
- How much time will it take?


Yeah. And what the heck
is the show about?


You, Mr. Danforth.


Me?


The spring musicale is all about you.


Hold up. If it's about me, then
can I have my ball back? Please?


- It's about all of you.
- Go!


And all of you will create it.


A show about your final days at
East High. We'll call it Senior Year.


Genius.


Uh-uh-uh! Playing a role is easy,


but being yourself,
now that's a challenge.


Miss Darbus, exactly...


Kelsi will compose,
Ryan will choreograph


- and I will direct.
- Thank you.


Now, I have
some very important news from...


...the Juilliard School
in New York City,


America's preeminent college
for the performing arts.


And for the first time
in East High history,


Juilliard is considering four of you


for one available scholarship.


- Miss Sharpay Evans.
- I'm already packed.


- Mr. Ryan Evans.
- Dance.


- Miss Kelsi Nielsen.
- What? They got my letter?


They certainly did.


And, lastly, Mr. Troy Bolton.


What?


Juilliard will be sending
representatives to observe our show.


So good luck to our four applicants.


Yeah, nice. Nice, guys.
That's pretty funny.


So... who's the big comedian?


- Is there something wrong?
- Yeah. Yeah, I didn't apply.


- I've never heard of Juilliard.
- Well, that may be, Mr. Bolton,


but evidently Juilliard
has heard of you.


And as you create this show,
you must dig deep


and think about your aspirations
and dreams for the future.


Line up, downstage, please.


Let's begin with Mr. Danforth.
Step forward, please.


Your future.


It's easy. It's U of A.
Hoops all the way.


- Yeah.
- Miss McKessie.


I'm going to be the President
of the United States.


Oh.


I'm going to finish
college first, of course.


Martha Cox, you're late.


I'm sorry, I just thought maybe
we could use a few more dancers.


I feel a show coming on already!


Mr. Bolton.


- Mr. Bolton.
- Hmm?


- Your future.
- Oh, yeah, uh...


You know... uh...


I've been thinking about...


Uh...


I think we should stage
the perfect prom.


Golly gee, how adorable.
What do I want?


Gosh, I wouldn't know
where to begin.


But I know where it ends.


Center stage.


A single spotlight.


A huge marquee that reads...


New York deli platter, please.


- How can you think about food?
- Maybe because it's lunch time?


No pickles.
Throw that Big Apple parfait in.


OK, this show is our last shot, Ryan.


Sharpay's meal, please.
Thanks. That's great.


Troy pretended
to know nothing about Juilliard.


- Give me a break.
- He seemed surprised to me.


The theater fairy magically
sent in Troy's application?


Performers can't fool me. They're
deceitful, ambitious and ruthless.


- Aren't we performers?
- Exactly.


Hmm.


Imagine having everything
we ever dreamed


- Don't you want it?
- Maybe


- Can't ya see it?
- Kinda


Imagine first audition
after college I get the lead


- A part for me?
- Well, of course


- Yeah, right, keep talking
- You gotta believe it


- You and I, all the fame
- Sharpay and what's-his-name


- Sound exciting?
- Inviting


- Let's do it then
- Listening


Personal stylist
agent and a publicist


- But where do I fit into this?
- With you, we can win


- Win the part?
- Think bigger


- Become superstars?
- That's better


Don't you see that bigger is better


And better is bigger


A little bit it is never enough
No, no, no


Don't you want it all?


You want it
You know that you want it


The fame and the fortune and more


You want it all


You want it
You know that you want it


You gotta have your star on the door


You want the world, nothing less

When Broadway knows your name

Oh, dance

Thank you! Thank you all!


It's Oprah calling.


Again.


She wants you on the show.


They're going to get back to you.


- You know how fast you were going?
- Officer Chad!


Hey, it's Ms. Evans.
How you doing? Follow me.

I- I-I want it, want it

All


It's ours, Ryan.


Wait a minute. Miss D said that
there's only one scholarship.


There's two of us.


We're twins. They're going
to have to take us both.


Listen, Kelsi always writes her
best songs for Troy and Gabriella.


So you make certain we get those songs.


How?


Polish her glasses, buy her some
ruby slippers, take her to prom.


I don't know.


Just do it.


- Hey, Tay.
- Morning, Sunshine.


- You going to rehearsals today?
- Uh, do I have a choice?


You got us into this. I don't
understand. You might not be here.


Told anyone you're up for
Stanford's Freshman Honors?


No.


You're gonna hear from them any day.


- Hello?
- Taylor, these things take time.


- Hey.
- I need you right away.


- What?
- Look up.


I have to go.


This has two weeks detention
written all over it.


Have fun.


I really need your help.


Which one do you think I should wear?


Because?


Because you're going to have
a pretty dress, so I want to look right.


I've never been asked to a prom, but
this almost sounds like an invitation.


This one.


I've never been to a dance,
much less a prom.


But I was hoping these
might be a good start.


Do you think we're going
to have to waltz?


Because I have no idea how to do that.


All I know is what my dad
taught me when I was a little girl.


I'd stand on his toes, and he'd
waltz me around the living room.


Come here. I'll show you.


- What?
- Come here.


We're on the roof.


Come here. You'll love it.


Take my hand


Take a breath


Pull me close


And take one step


Keep your eyes


Locked on mine


And let the music


Be your guide


- Won't you promise me
- Now won't you promise me


- That you'll never forget
- We'll keep dancing


- To keep dancing wherever we go next
- Wherever we go next


It's like catching lightning


The chances of finding


Someone like you


It's one in a million


The chances of feeling


The way we do


And with every step together


We just keep on getting better


- So can I have this dance?
- Can I have this dance?


Can I have this dance?


Oh


No mountain's too high and no


Ocean's too wide


'Cause together or not
our dance won't stop


Let it rain...


Let it pour
What we have is worth fighting for


You know I believe
that we were meant to be


It's like catching lightning
The chances of finding


Someone like you


It's one in a million
The chances of feeling


The way we do


And with every step together


We just keep on getting better


- So can I have this dance?
- Can I have this dance?


Can I have this dance?


- Can I have...
- This dance?


Can I have this dance?


- So is that a yes?
- In every language.


Yes.


Oh, come on!


Where's our clothes?


- Yo, Rocket Man.
- Oh, there they are.


- Thought you wanted our lockers.
- It's moving day.


Oh, sweet.


- Good job.
- Thanks, man.


Perfect timing, Bolton.


We weren't just given these lockers.
We had to earn them.


Right. Right. Thanks, man.


- Chad, what's the combo?
- What's the combo?


It's like he said.
You got to earn them.


What's that supposed to mean?


Hey, guys! Come back.
What are you talking about?


- Not cool, guys!
- Hey, Bolton! Danforth!


Hey, stop playing games!


This isn't funny, guys!


Chad, up top.


- I got it.
- Spike!


- Let's go! Out!
- Give me my clothes!


- This isn't funny, guys!
- Just give me my clothes, man!


Look out. Coming through.


Hey, those are new jeans!
I need those back!


Arms, two, three, four,
five, six, seven, eight.


You're really stressing me out.


I need to breathe.
And I don't know what Ryan is doing.


He's doing some kind of
yoga Fosse thing.


Two, three, four... What are you doing?
... six, seven, eight.


One, two, three, great,
five, six, seven...


Troy, just give me my clothes!


- Yearbook opportunity.
- Photo op.


Smile!


Wow.


- Hi.
- Bold choice, gentlemen.


We all must have the courage
to discover ourselves.


However, at East High,


we will discover ourselves
whilst clothed.


But welcome to our drama club
and our spring musicale.


Yeah, welcome.


The stage crew can use
your help during detention...


...painting sets.


Throw a sheet over them.


Ryan!


OK. All right, guys,
let's go back up to the top.


Jason, why don't you come
down here and help me out.


Fuel pump...


...work in progress.
If my truck falls apart


because I'm spending my time onstage,
it's your fault.


You think I'd be spending any time
at all up there if it wasn't for you?


You know what? I do.


- What?
- You're so good.


I watch you in rehearsals. You love it.


Why is that so hard for you to admit?


It isn't, to you.


But to my dad? To Chad?
Yeah, it's a little hard.


It shouldn't be.


They're happy as long as
we're all talking about U of A.


You chose Stanford. U of A
was sort of chosen for me.


I haven't talked
to anybody about this, but...


...I've had offers from other colleges.


- I'm really listening.
- I get it, Troy.


I still have decisions to make, too.


Like what?


I thought I heard you. I was just making
some snacks inside. Are you guys hungry?


- I interrupted something, didn't I?
- Just talking, Mom.


- Homework.
- OK.


Speaking about homework... come on.


I was joking.


Compliments of Zeke.
Be careful, they're still hot.


He doesn't know they're gone.
Eat the evidence.


Kissing up to the yearbook editors.
Very smart move.


Chad's hoping for two pages on himself.


Maybe even a third page,
just for his hair.


Hey, what's right is right.


Hoops, by the way, could you take me
after school to check out that tuxedo?


Tuxedo? For what?


For prom.


Honey, if that's
what you call an invitation,


you'll be dancing with yourself.


Ohh.


- Yo, yo, yo. It's lunchtime.
- Come on, people. Go!


- You ready?
- Yeah.


It's now or never, man.


The Garden Club is rooting for you.


Mmm.


- OK. I'm going in.
- Go get her.


- Troy, I really just...
- No, we're doing this now.


How long have you been up there?


- Hair's great.
- Don't...


I know. I heard that, too.


- Yes, good.
- Yes. OK.


- Your turn.
- So... Hey.


I was kind of wondering if you'd...


...maybe go with me.


Oh, hey, Chad. They have Tuna Surprise
on the menu. It's good. Really good.


Dude.


Taylor.


Hey, I'm asking you to prom.


I'm sorry, I can't hear you
because it's so loud.


- Did you hear something?
- No.


- Neither did I.
- Excuse me. Excuse me, everybody.


- What are you?
- Yo!


Oh.


My friend has something to say.


Taylor McKessie.


Will you please be
my date to the senior prom?


Aww...


I'd be honored.


Dude, I need to go shoot
some hoops or something.


You nailed it!


Guess now it's official


- Can't back out, can't back out
- No


Gettin' ready


For the night of nights
The night of nights, all right


- Don't panic
- Panic


Now do we have
to dress up for the prom?


Dude, I don't think we have the choice


Yeah it's the night of all nights
Got to look just right


Dressin' to impress the boys


Do I want classic or vintage or plaid


- Where's the mirror
- I think this tux is too baggy


Too tight
It makes me look weird


Should I go movie star glamorous


Sassy or sweet


Don't know, but no one better
wear the same dress as me


It's the night of our nightmares


It's the night of our dreams


It's too late to back out of it


- Hey, makeovers, massages
- Don't know what a corsage is


Been waiting all our lives for this


- It's gonna be a night
- Can't wait


- To remember
- Oh, man


Come on now
Big fun, all right


- It's gonna be the night
- I guess


- To last forever
- Lucky us


We'll never ever ever forget


- Gettin' ready
- Get ready


- Get, gettin' ready
- Get ready


Gettin' ready


Get, gettin' ready
Go


Hey, you've been in there an hour.


So, what should I do with my hair?


- Where's my shaver?
- I love it


- I look like a waiter
- Should I fluff it?


It's getting later already
Should be there


Her mother opens the door
I'm shakin' inside


He's here, it's time
The hour's arrived


Don't know why
her father's starin' me down


Where's my purse, lip gloss?
Now I'm really freakin' out


Then something changes my world


The most beautiful girl
Right in front of my eyes


- It's gonna be a night
- Oh, yeah


- To remember
- That's for sure


Come on now
Big fun, all right


- It's gonna be the night
- Here tonight


- To last forever
- Forever more


We'll never ever ever forget


Guys, right here. Guys!


Who's that girl? She's so fine


Who's that guy? I don't recognize


Who's that girl?
She looks so good, yeah


Guess you never really noticed
But you probably should


Big fun


- On the night of nights
- All right


The night of nights
Tonight


Let's dance


On the night of nights
You know we're gonna do it right


It's gonna be a night
To remember


It's gonna be the night
To last forever


It's gonna be our night
To remember


It's gonna be the night
To last forever


It's gonna be our night
You know it


To remember
For all time


Come on now
Big fun


It's gonna be the night
We love it


To last forever
The rest of our lives


We'll never ever ever forget


It's gonna be our night
Oh, yeah


All together
Say it loud


Come on now
Everyone, that's right


It's gonna be the night
Yeah, the night


To remember
Hear the crowd


And never ever ever


Never ever ever never ever


Never never forget


Bravo! Brava! Lights, please!


Kelsi, splendid music.


Ryan, your choreography
is quite inventive.


- Thank you.
- And, Jason,


we do not chew gum in theatre or prom.


See me at detention.
Lighting crew needs help.


Excellent work, everyone.


Costumes on the rack.
I will see you all tomorrow.


Kelsi's writing something amazing
for Troy and Gabriella.


A song, most likely.


- Just find out what it is.
- OK.


Hi, Boi! How was I? Thank you!


- Hey Troy, good job, man.
- Dude, stop doing that!


I'm sorry.


Look, there's Sharpay.


Now, you didn't hear this from me,
but she has a secret crush on you.


- A secret crush on me?
- Shhh!


Shhh.


- Should I talk to her?
- Yeah.


OK. All right.


Mr. Zara.


Yo! You can call me
"Rocket Man" if you want to.


How generous.


Mr. Zara, since you have become
such a dedicated presence,


I'm making you an understudy. Miss Gold!


- You as well.
- Nice.


I'm in!


I'm playing "The Understudy. "


- Congrats.
- Right. What's up?


"Understudy" isn't a role, you moron.


You go on if one of the leads
can't make the performance.


Well, I hate to break it to you, sister,
but you're one, too.


The difference being I can carry a tune.


Listen, I wouldn't sing with you
if my hair was on fire


and you were the last bucket
of water on Earth.


I wouldn't sing with you
if I were starving


and you were
the last pickle at the picnic.


Want to go to lunch sometime?


Gentlemen, start your engines.


That's what I'm talking about, bro.
Yo, come check out these guitars.


What is this?


"Stanford's Honors Program cordially... "


Oh, my gosh.


Oh, my goodness! "You and 29 students
are invited for early orientation. "


Oh, my gosh, that's huge.
Your mom must be so proud.


Taylor, you're the only one that knows.


But you've already accepted, right?


I'm throwing a going-away party.
This is huge!


You can't get rid of me that easy.
We've got a yearbook to do.


- Back to work.
- OK.


- These are Sharpay's yearbook photos.
- Of course they are. Thank you.


- This better be good.
- They select only 30 freshmen


from the entire incoming class. It's
a special three-weeks Honor program.


How prestigious.


But the program starts in two weeks.
She'd miss our sh... your show.


Oh, my goodness. What to do?


The show must go on, mustn't it?


- Morning.
- Morning.


"I just wanna be with you. "


I got a lot of things I have to do


All these distractions


Our future's coming soon


We're being pulled


A hundred different directions


But whatever happens


I know I've got you...


- It's beautiful.
- Thanks.


I mean, really. This,
the prom number, everything.


It's going to be a great show.


- Speaking of prom, what are you doing?
- It's two days before the show.


I'm writing orchestrations and fixing
charts. I still have to write lyrics.


Great. I'll pick you up at 8:00.


You're on my mind
You're in my heart


It doesn't matter where we are


We'll be all right


Even if we're miles apart


All I wanna do


Is be with you


Be with you


There's nothing we can't do


Just wanna be with you
Only you


No matter where life takes us


- Nothing can break us apart
- You know it's true


I just wanna be with you


- Great!
- Awesome.


Just be with you


You know how life can be
It changes overnight


It's sunny then raining
but it's all right


- A friend like you
- Always makes it easy


- I know that you get me
- Every time


Through every up through every down
you know I'll always be around


Through anything you can count on me


All I wanna do


Is be with you


Be with you


There's nothing we can't do


Just wanna be with you
Only you


No matter where life takes us


Nothing can break us apart


You know it's true


I just wanna be with you


I just wanna be with you


Bravo! Great rehearsal. Pity
the actor that has to follow you.


I believe that actor is you,
Mr. Choreographer.


Oh, really?


- OK, let's take five and run it again.
- Yes!


- Ryan!
- That's five, everybody.


Did you get a copy
of that song from Kelsi?


No. But I'm taking her to prom.


Brilliant. Keep your friends close,
and your enemies closer.


Now get me that duet.


Uh... Sharpay, you are not Gabriella.


Zzztt!


Don't be so sure.


- Hey, Bobby.
- Hey, the boys are back.


- Hey, Bob.
- How are you?


- Mr. Riley.
- Troy.


There is nothing like the purr of
a well-tuned engine. That wasn't it.


Yeah. My fuel pump's deceased.
You have a radiator cap for me?


- Heard of duct tape?
- That's what I got on it now.


Dig around over there.
I'm sure you'll find what you want.


I am so excited about you boys
playing at the U of A next year.


I bought my season tickets.
I got to take off early today,


so lock up when you're done.


- Yeah.
- You know where the key is.


- Say "hey" to Coach.
- Will do.


Did you hear that? He's got season
tickets. Time to start practicing.


Take a breather, LeBron.


Feel like your future
is laid out in front of you?


- What is your point?
- I don't know.


I just want my future
to be my future.


Do you see what happens when you
do a show? You're, like, five people.


Yeah, but what's so bad about that?


We used to come here as kids,
we'd be ten people.


We'd be spies, superheroes, rock stars.


Hold this. We were whatever we wanted
to be, whenever we wanted to be it.


It was us.


Yeah, we were, like, eight years old.


For the record, I was
a better superhero than you were.


Take it back to the place
when you know it all began


We could be anything we wanna be


We can tell by the noise
that the boys are back again


Together making history


It's time to show how


To be a superhero


Just like a showdown


Will Smith and Bobby De Niro


We're the best, no doubt


Doing it like we used to do


This is our town, yeah


And I'm telling you


Oh, the boys are back
Hey, the boys are back


That's right


The boys are back
Gonna do it again


Gonna wake up the neighborhood


The boys are back, yeah
The boys are back, all right


Climbing up the walls any time we want


The word is out
The boys are back


The boys are back


Back to save the day


The boys are back


Oh, yeah


Keep coming with the right
Win the fight, every single time


Undefeated here in our house
Yeah


We can rock, we can shock
Any time we like


And tonight we're going all out


It's time to show how


To be a superhero, oh


Just like a showdown


Keep the pedal to the metal
Go!


We're the best, no doubt


Doing it like we used to do


This is our town


And I'm telling you
Oh, look out


The boys are back, hey


- The boys are back
- That's right


The boys are back, gonna do it again
gonna wake up the neighborhood


The boys are back, yeah


- The boys are back
- All right


Climbing up the walls any time we
want, the word is out, the boys are back


Here to change the world


To solve the mystery
Fight the battle


Save the girl


No one
No one can stop us now


We're the ones that make the rules


Oooh!


No, no, no, hey!
No, no, no, no! Hey!


The boys are back


Oh, yeah


The boys are back, hey
the boys are back, that's right


The boys are back
Gonna do it again


Gonna wake up the neighborhood


The boys are back, yeah
The boys are back, all right


Climbing up the walls any time we want


No need to worry, 'cause...


The boys are back
Hey, the boys are back


The boys are back
Gonna do it again


And we make it look good


The boys are back
Yeah, the boys are back


Tearing down the walls
any time we want


I'm sure that you know by now


The boys are back


What are you gonna do
if Juilliard says yes?


- I don't know.
- That's not what I wanted to hear.


I'm getting your butt back
in the gym tomorrow. Got me?


So I can whup your butt?


- Dream on.
- With my eyes closed.


Ohhh!


What's up, man?


Hi, Troy!


I realized I haven't
offered my congratulations.


Oh, thank you.
I'm glad the season's over, so...


I didn't mean basketball, silly!
I meant Gabriella.


- What?
- Her missing the show


is a little disappointing, but being
selected for Stanford's Honors Program,


that is amazing for her
and for East High.


I don't know what you're talking about.


Everyone else does.
The whole school's buzzing.


The honorees spend time with Stanford's
top professors starting next week.


- Next week?
- Look, right there.


You really didn't know?


OK, this is a little awkward.


I guess her not telling you means
that she's on the fence about it.


But who better than Troy Bolton to
encourage her to accept the honor?


Since the only thing possibly
holding her back would be... you.


Well, I'll see you at rehearsal.
Toodles.


Hello?


Hello. Somebody order a pizza pie?


- I didn't order a pizza.
- Special delivery!


Margherita pizza!


Shh.


Just the way you like it.


Let's not forget,


what's a picnic without
chocolate-covered strawberries?


It wouldn't be right.


Do you want the last strawberry?


Hmm...


Come on. This might very well be the
best strawberry in the whole world,


you wouldn't know
because you're not gonna eat it.


Fine, then.


Mmm!


You were right.


So here's the thing.


Your Honors Program at Stanford...


- How did you hear about that?
- A lot of people heard about it.


But I wasn't one of them. Why?


Because I knew what you would say.


Of course you should do
the Honors Program.


Is that what you were trying to tell me?
In the backyard the other day?


One of the things.


What else?


I've been thinking about trying
to talk my mom into staying


in Albuquerque another year.
I'll just take some classes here


and go to Stanford when I'm ready.


You can't just put off something
as amazing as Stanford.


You got to go. It's the right thing.


I always do the right thing. Maybe
I want to be a little crazy this time.


Everything about my life has
always been full speed ahead.


I told you, I wish it
would all just slow down...


...to a stop.


We're going to graduate.


That's going to happen.
Nothing is going to slow down.


I guess my heart just doesn't know
it's in high school.


- Well...
- Shh.


You don't have to say anything else.


I'm a lot better at goodbyes than you.


I've had a ton of practice.


Why are you saying goodbye?


We still have prom.
We still have to graduate.


I meant "good night. "


- You OK?
- Yeah.


- Good night.
- Good night.


I guess I should've known better


To believe that my luck had changed


Oh, I let my heart and forever


Finally learn each other's name


I tell myself this time
it's different


No goodbyes
'cause I can't bear to say it


I'd never survive the one
that's coming


If I stay
Oh, no


Just walk away and don't look back


'Cause if my heart breaks
it's gonna hurt so bad


You know I'm strong
but I can't take that


Before it's too late


Oh, just walk away


Walk, walk, walk away


Oh, just walk away


Walk, walk, walk away


Oh, just walk away


I've got to let it go


Start protecting my heart and soul


'Cause I don't think
I'll survive a goodbye again


Not again


Just walk away
Oh, and don't look back


'Cause if my heart breaks
it's gonna hurt so bad


You know I'm strong
but I can't take that


Before it's too late


Oh, oh, oh


Just walk away


Walk, walk, walk away


Walk away, walk away, yeah


Walk, walk, walk away


Walk away, walk away


Walk, walk, walk away


Walk away, walk away


Walk, walk, walk away


Walk away, walk away


Oh, ohhh


All right, everyone!
Attention, please! Listen up.


As some of you know, Miss Montez
is no longer available to us.


However, the show must indeed go on.


So, Sharpay, you will do
Gabriella's duet with Troy.


Tiara, ready to step in for Sharpay?


Those sparkling shoes
are impossible to fill.


- Don't worry. Kelsi will work with you.
- Hmm.


Come on, people. Let's rise to
the occasion. We're all pros here.


Let's do it for Gabriella. OK?


Kelsi, Troy, Ryan. Play piano.


All right, we have a lot of work to do.


There are sets to paint.
Drill that second number. Let's go!


Come on people, double time!


- Hey.
- Hey.


- It's late.
- Yeah.


Hear from Gabriella?


Yeah.


She's knee-deep in geniuses out there.


Believe it or not, she says
the food's better at East High.


Yeah. Oh, yeah.


She still coming down for prom?


Yeah.


How's that big show going?


You don't want to know.


When were you going
to tell me about this?


Juilliard.


There's nothing to tell.


Maybe there is.


I heard you're talking to other schools.
I mean, is this serious?


U of A isn't the only school
that's talked to me. You know that.


But it's the only school
we talked about.


Chad would be disappointed
if you changed your mind.


No, Chad would get over it.


Would you?


We've been going to U of A games
since you were a little kid.


You talked about wearing
a Redhawks uniform.


But I'm not a little kid anymore.


You raised me to make my own choices
and I need to make them.


Not you or Chad or anybody else. Me.


Hey.


Troy, come on. Troy!


The day a door is closed


The echoes fill your soul


They won't say which way to go


Just trust your heart


To find what you're here for


Open another door


But I'm not sure anymore


It's just so hard


Voices in my head


Tell me they know best
Got me on the edge


They're pushing, pushing
They're pushing


I know they've got a plan
But the ball's in my hands


This time it's man to man
I'm driving, fighting inside a


World that's upside down


And spinning faster


What do I do now without you


I don't know where to go
What's the right team?


I want my own thing
So bad I'm going to scream


I can't choose, so confused


What's it all mean?
I want my own dream


So bad I'm going to scream


I'm kicking down the walls
I've gotta make 'em fall


Just break through 'em all
I'm punching, crashing


I'm gonna fight to find
myself, me and no one else


Which way, I can't tell
I'm searching, searching


Can't find the way that I should turn
I should turn right or left


It's like nothing works without you


I don't know where to go
What's the right team?


I want my own thing
So bad I'm gonna scream


I can't choose, so confused
What's it all mean?


I want my own dream
So bad I'm gonna scream


Yeah, the clock's running down
Hear the crowd gettin' loud


I'm consumed by the sound
Is it her, is it love?


Can the music ever be enough?


Gotta work it out
Gotta work it out


You can do it
You can do it


I don't know where to go


What's the right team?


I want my own thing


So bad I'm gonna scream


I can't choose, so confused


What's it all mean?


I want my own dream


So bad I'm gonna scream


Aaah!


Miss D?


I know I'm not supposed to be here.


Aren't you?


Nor should I be at this hour I suppose,


but I am trying to rebalance a show


in which Sharpay now plays
the role of Miss Montez.


And the reason for your visit is?


I don't know. I think I feel
like this is a good place to...


- Scream? Feel free.
- Or just to think.


The stage can be a wonderful partner
in the process of self-discovery.


You seem comfortable up there.


I do?


Which is why I submitted an application
in your name to Juilliard.


It was you.


Better to consider opportunities now


than in ten years when life
may limit your choices.


If I overstepped, I apologize.


No. No, I'm not mad.


I'm just confused.


What a life in the theater
has taught me is


to trust one's instincts.


And that takes courage.
A quality you don't seem to lack.


Last one out turns off the lights.


So walk, walk, walk. Jump in.


Around the world and spin out.
See? You got it.


- You're easier to dance with than her.
- My turn.


OK. Here we go. From the top.


Walk, walk, walk.
Jump down. Around the world.


Heads up! Heads up!


All right, everyone. Let's just
take five, all right? Take five.


You two. House up.


Hoops Man. Over here.


You look like you're having
the time of your life.


I'm messing up the dances.
I'm messing up all the songs. I'm sorry.


It's all of us.
And all of us pretty much know why.


If it wasn't for Gabriella, this musical
would have been another "Sharpay Show. "


- It'll be fine.
- Yeah.


- Hey, Mama!
- Hi.


Wow.


Gorgeous!


I'd like to take credit,
but Gabriella picked it out.


I ordered that corsage you showed me.
It's going to be perfect.


Thanks, Mom.


- You did good.
- Thank you.


It's Gabriella.


Hey! I just showed my mom the tux.


We need to talk.


I can't be a little adult right now,
Troy. I'm hoping you understand that.


No, don't even say that.


Gabriella. Prom is in two days.


You're supposed to be on a plane now.


It's taking me two weeks to
get used to being away from you.


- From East High and all my friends.
- I know. I know.


So, what, I come back,
go to prom and leave again?


And then it's graduation,
and leave again?


- That was our plan.
- I don't think I can do it, Troy.


I think I've run out of goodbyes.


Why do you keep saying goodbye?


I love you, Wildcat.


But I need to stay
right where I am. I'm sorry.


Gabriella.


She's not coming back, man.


- Is she going to miss prom?
- No, she's not coming back at all.


Wow. That's lousy, man.


It really is.


But, hey, man.


Everybody knows you don't bring
the girl with you after high school.


Look, Gabriella is already
one step ahead. As usual.


Right now you got
to snap out of it, dude.


She's off to Stanford.
And, look, I am right there with you.


Taylor's heading to Yale.
And you and me are going to U of A.


It's a new ball game.


Maybe I don't see my life
as a ball game anymore, man.


Look.


You're gonna go to the prom with us,
be with your friends.


You're gonna have
a good time. All right?


I don't plan on missing my prom.


There we go.


I figured you'd be the last one
out of the building.


I don't believe this.


I took a wrong turn on the way to prom.


So did you.


You are so crazy, Wildcat.
And what is it with you and trees?


I guess I see things
more clearly from up here.


You look handsome.


Prom is tonight in Albuquerque.
It's a thousand miles away.


My prom is wherever you are.


If I'm going to have a last dance
at East High, it's going to be with you.


Take my hand
I'll take the lead


And every turn will be safe with me


Don't be afraid
Afraid to fall


You know I'll catch you through it all


- And you can't keep us apart
- Even a thousand miles


Can't keep us apart


'Cause my heart is wherever you are


It's like catching lightning


The chances of finding someone


Like you


It's one in a million


The chances of feeling


The way we do


And with every step together


We just keep on getting better


- So can I have this dance?
- Can I have this dance?


Can I have this dance?


- Can I have this dance?
- This dance


Can I have this dance?


You know... I'm not the only one
that changed when you came to East High.


Kids that I used to just pass
in the hallway... we're friends now.


And we're supposed to
be doing a 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 goodbye to East High,


but East High's not ready
to say goodbye to you.


Ladies and gentlemen, this is the
final call for curtain. Find your seats.


Hey, Mommy and Daddy,
how was Africa? No, I mean India.


Oh, fabulous. The show is starting soon.


You're in the lobby?


OK. Toodles. And I love the roses!


Hey, what's up? We haven't formally met,


but I feel like I know you
in sort of a vibe-y level.


I'm Jimmy "The Rocket" Zara.


"Jimmy The Rocket"?
What are you? A Muppet gangster?


Oh. What is that? Is that
your cologne or a toxic spill?


Oh, yeah. It's called "Babe Magnet. "
Bought it just for the show.


You like it?


Eww! That is so gross.


Hello! Send Troy in to see me.
I need to run the song.


Yo! Dion.
Troy Bolton just sent me a text.


Probably just checking in.


"Been driving all night.
I'll try to make it for the second act.


- Break a leg. "
- "Break a leg"? What does that mean?


Dude, that's show biz
for "you're going on tonight. "


- As Troy?
- Yeah.


- Onstage?
- Yeah.


- Oh, no.
- Get it!


All right. Notify Sharpay. I will
take care of Kelsi and the orchestra.


Hold up, Miss D.


I think he stopped breathing.


Well, then give him the Heimlich!
It's showtime!


- Go get 'em.
- Come on.


- Hello, Mrs. Evans.
- Hello.


- Enjoy the show.
- Thank you.


It's so wonderful, yes.
Seats right here.


Thank you for coming. Enjoy the show.


It's our last chance
to share the stage


Before we go our separate ways


High school wasn't meant
to last forever


It's our last chance for us to shine


To bring you music one more time


So come on
Come on, come on


Come on, come on, come on


Come on, come on, come on


W-I-L-D Wildcats!
You know you're on


W-I-L-D Wildcats!
Come on, come on


East High boys
Let's make some noise


Oh, yeah, W-I-L-D Wildcats!
Now's the time


This is the last time to get it right


This is the last chance
to make it our night


We got to 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


Yeahhh


-
- Entrée.


Good evening, Miss Evans.
Two minutes till places.


Tell Troy to come up.
I want to rehearse the kissing.


Hasn't anybody told you that Troy...


Go!


I want it all I want it
I want it, I want it


I gotta have my star on the door


I want the world
Nothing less


All the glam and the press
Only giving me the best reviews


I want it all
Want it all, want it all


He's the choreographer.


Kick it, girls


I want it all
Want it all, want it all


Want it all, want it all


We want it all


My band! Thank you!


East High, you're amazing! Good night.


Yeah!


Yeah!


That's my boy!


We have to save something. I'm at
the balcony, don't forget the special.


You forget the special. Where's Troy?
OK, he's around here somewhere.


Oh. Cute pants. Oh.


- You're on.
- Oh.


Ma! Ma!


Oooh


Yeah, yeah


Oooh


Yeah


I got a lot of things I have to do


All these distractions
Our future's coming soon


We're being pulled
a hundred different directions


Focus, Jimmy. Come on, man.


You're on my mind
You're in my heart


It doesn't matter where we are


We'll be all right


Even if we're miles apart


Even if we're miles apart


Even if we're miles
and miles and miles apart


I think we have a problem.


All I wanna do


Is be with you


Be with you


There's nothing we can't do


Just wanna be with you
Only you


And no matter where life takes us


Nothing can break us apart


- I just wanna be with...
- Eww.


You


Yeah!


Thank you very much.


- You rule!
- Best crowd I've ever had.


Hey!


Perfect. Go for it.
Save the day. Whoopee!


What?


You guys got to see this.


No, you guys are awesome.
Thank you.


- They're here!
- Kels!


- Let's go! You're on!
- Oh, man. Hey!


That's my dress!


I had one made just like it.
Only better.


I'm playing Sharpay, remember?


You're not a singer.
You're a London schoolgirl.


Yes. London Academy of Dramatic Arts.


I took the job with you to learn
the ropes at East High. Now I have.


Now, step aside. I need to warm up
and give a good first impression.


Since it will be
my drama department next year.


But you were so loyal. So sweet.


That's called acting.
You should try it sometime.


Toodles.


You know how life
can be, it changes overnight


It's sunny then raining
but it's all right


A friend like you


Always makes it easy


I know that you get me


Every time


Through every up, through every down
You know I'll always be around


Through anything you can count on me


All I wanna do


- That is Troy Bolton.
- Is be with you


Be with you


There's nothing we can't do


Just wanna be with you
Only you


No matter where life takes us


Nothing can break us apart


You know it's true
I just wanna be with you


You


I just wanna be with you


The sun will always shine


That's how you make me feel


We're gonna be all right


'Cause what we have is real


And we will always be together


All I wanna do


Is be with you


Be with you


There's nothing we can't do


Just wanna be with you
Only you


No matter where life takes us


Nothing can break us apart


You know it's true


I just wanna be with you


All I wanna do


All that I wanna do is be with you


All that I wanna do is be with you


All that I wanna do is be with you


All that I wanna do


I just wanna be with you


Sharpay Evans, I believe
you're in the wrong costume.


Who's that girl?
She's so fine


Who's that girl?
I don't recognize


Who's that girl?
She looks so good, yeah


Guess you never really noticed
but you probably should


Big fun
On the night of nights


The night of nights
Tonight


Let's dance
On the night of nights


You know we're gonna do it right


- It's gonna be our night
- You know it


- To remember
- For all time


- Surprise.
- Big fun

- We love it


- To last forever
- The rest of our lives


We'll never ever ever forget
It's gonna be...


- My night
- Oh, yeah


- All together
- Say it loud


Come on now
Everyone, that's right


- It's gonna be a night
- You can bet


- To remember
- Hear the crowd


And never ever ever
Never ever ever


Never ever never
ever ever forget


- Thank you so much.
- It was such a great show.


See them out, please. Thank you.


Together, together
Together, everyone


Together, together, come on
Let's have some fun


Ladies and gentlemen! Our seniors!


Kelsi Nielsen, the Juilliard
School Scholarship Recipient.


Music.


Jason Cross.


You did it. You graduated.


Whoo hoo hoo!


Taylor McKessie, Yale University,
with honors, Political Science.


And I am pleased to announce that due


to the excellence
displayed here this evening,


the Juilliard School has made
an extraordinary decision.


Another senior is being offered
a Juilliard scholarship.


Congratulations,
Mr. Ryan Evans, Choreography.


And congratulations, Miss Sharpay Evans.


University of Albuquerque,
Performing Arts.


Miss Evans has agreed
to return to East High next fall


to assist me in running
the Drama Department.


And now a senior who I believe
has a decision to make.


Mr. Troy Bolton. Troy.


I've chosen basketball.


But I've also chosen theater.


The University of California,
Berkeley, offers me both.


That's where I'm going
to be attending next fall.


But most of all, I choose the
person who inspires my heart.


Which is why I picked
a school that's exactly 32.7...


...miles from you.


Miss Gabriella Montez,
Stanford University, Pre-Law.


Next, Mr. Chad Danforth.


University of Albuquerque,
Basketball Scholarship!


He's gone.


Mr. Danforth.


He goes up for the shot and it's good!


East High Wildcat victory
for the record books!


Once they hand us that diploma,
we're done here?


What makes you think
we're getting diplomas?


One question: does Berkeley play?


Oh, yeah. We're scheduled to kick
some Redhawk butt next November.


Game on, Hoops.


Yeah.


Oh! One more steal. The final point.


Danforth! Bolton!
You get out there and you get onstage!


I never thought I'd hear
my dad say that.


We're all in this together


Once we know


That we are
We're all stars


And we see that


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 brûlée.


And the brainiac can break 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 that
we'll keep for the rest of our lives.


And I guess that means
we really are all in this together.


Because once a Wildcat...


...always a Wildcat.


- Yeah, man.
- Thank you!


Thank you, sir.
Thank you very much.


Looking forward from center stage
to graduation day


Time to get the future started


What we leave what we take
with us no matter what


It's something we're a part of
we learned to fly


Together side by side


I just hope the rest of my life


Will feel as good as my


High School Musical
Who says we have to let it go?


It's the best part we've ever known


Step into the future


But hold on to
High School Musical


Let's celebrate where we come from


The friends who've been there
all along, just like


A High School Musical


Improvisation without
a script, no one's written it


And now we have the chance to


But some day we'll be looking back
memories we'll have


All the songs that we lived through


The best of times
So why leave them behind


Why can't the rest of my life


Be like my
High School Musical?


Who says we have to let it go?


It's the best part we've ever known


Step into the future


But hold on to
High School Musical


Let's celebrate where we come from


The friends who've been there
all along, that's right


Now we finally realize


Who we are
It just took some time


We had to live
and to learn to see the truth


Learn to see the truth


That nothing's ever impossible
into the future we all free fall


But forever
we'll always have high school


Time to party now
Celebrate


Because the world's one big stage


Any part you want can be yours


Everybody sing


But the show is never going to close


It's what got us here, we know


High school lives on forever more


- High School
- High School Musical


High School Musical


Who says we have to let it go?


It's the best part we've ever known


Step into the future, but hold on to

I want the rest of my life
to feel just like a

Remember that time


I've heard those words before
but now they're mine


Every memory of the sweet sunshine


Is living here in my heart and mine


Oh, oh


Every laugh


We share together
Yeah, we still give back
