High School Musical (2006) (part 6 of 12)
Back from “commercial”, another day dawns at East High. We’re once again in Darbus’ homeroom, and Troy is making flirty faces at Gabriella. So I can see he learned a lot from being in detention, and from his Dad’s reaction to him being in detention, and his Dad’s warning to behave from now on.
And today… Today, my friends, Ryan is wearing a pink newsboy cap. Let me say that again: A pink newsboy cap. I mean, come on.
Darbus explains in her Darbus-like, flowery, overdramatic way that today is the day of auditions for the “musicale“—whoa, that was fast! She’ll be in the auditorium all day, for the benefit of any students who want to “extend the wingspan of your creative spirit!”
On this line, she spreads out her arms, and Chad makes a dumb, whispered joke to Troy about Darbus flying back to her “mothership”. But Troy only pretends to laugh, much like the rest of us. I wonder if there were ever times Romeo felt like saying, “You know what, Mercutio? Shut the fuck up”?
