Mr. Mazzara: Aren’t you supposed to be somewhere right now?
Carlos: Broadway.

Carlos: I’ve seen the original High School Musical 37 times, and the first 15 minutes of both sequels.

Ashlyn to EJ: Maybe it would be good for you to not get what you want for once. Then again, you are who you are.

Carlos: He’s basically a Hollister model.

Ms. Jenn: Yoohoo, Ginger Boy. Can you read?

Big Red: Did I just join a cult?

Ms. Jenn: I come from strong stock. My grandmother bounced back from an autopsy.

Ashlyn: Dating her doesn’t mean you own her.

Carlos: It’s Fred Astaire. Fred Rogers was Mr. Rogers. He never danced. He potty-trained puppets.

Gina: I’m a transfer student. You either eat or get eaten.

Ms. Jenn: If they can have 40 sports ball trophies, we deserve a little movie museum.

Ms. Jenn: Nobody’s holding furniture over their head. This isn’t The Lion King.

Ricky: What happens now?
Nini: Usually the theater kids cry and then we go to Denny’s.

Seb: I smell a choosical redo-sical.

And perhaps my favorite HSMTMTS quote of all time:

Nini: Is that really her phone?
Miss Jenn: Hold it to your ear like a seashell. You’ll hear echoes of VHudge crushing the B-flat on When There Was Me and You.

What does Ricky say to Nini in the Season 1 Finale?

I’ve received a lot of requests for Ricky’s quote when he tells Nini he loves her in the Season Finale, so here’s his speech for all you Team Ricky fans.

Ricky: I love you. I’ve loved you since the first time you picked up your ukelele and you wrote a song about clouds. A silly little song about clouds. I love you. And that night in your room, when you told me you loved me, I meant to say it. I meant to say it, and I’ve kicked myself every day since then, because I didn’t say it. But I do. I love you. I’ve loved you since 7th grade when I made you ride in the front row of Demon’s Destiny at Six Flags, and you told me you sometimes get a little seasick on roller coasters, and I said, “Come on, live a little.”

Nini: I remember.

Ricky: And then I puked all over your shoes, and you didn’t even make me feel bad about it. No, you just said um…

Nini: No worries. I’ve been wanting to get rid of these shoes for awhile. 

Ricky: Yeah, because you outgrew them. The thing is I never outgrew you. And I don’t really know what happens tomorrow or in two minutes when we walk out that door. All I know is I want this feeling to keep going. Because this whole experience I’m just…I’m not ready for it to be over. For us to be, I mean. And if that means doing another musical, then fine.

Nini: I get to pick the musical.

Ricky: Fine. That’s fine. It’s all fine. I just…I don’t want this to be just a showmance. Really. I want it to be the real thing. I mean, I think it is the real thing. I just…I want a chance to prove it. I do.

There you have it. Swoon.

My favorite quote from hsmtmts is definitely the Broadway quote. But more on the Carlos/Frankie quotes (He's my idol, seriously. Haha.) Seb: "I'm really sorry I missed so much" Carlos: "I'm really sorry about your cow..." Very fun quote, not as strong as the others but I just love funny lines and scenes like this with Seb&Carlos!
