High School Musical (2006) (part 8 of 12)
Back from “commercial”, we’re now in the boys locker room. Not my ideal destination, I gotta tell you. Can’t we spend some time in the girls restroom instead?
Deep inside the locker room is the coach’s office. Coach Dad eats a sandwich at his desk, and gazes upon a picture of Troy in the local paper. Suddenly, Darbus comes marching through the boys locker room, but because this isn’t an ’80s teen sex comedy, she doesn’t actually see any naked boys.
Darbus confronts Coach Dad, and her complaint is really roundabout and muddled, but she seems to think that, as a bizarre revenge ploy, Coach Dad set Troy up to audition, and Troy is plotting “some sort of practical joke in my chapel of the arts!” She zealously defends her “musicale“, which we finally learn is called “Twinkle Towne”. Good thing it’s not “Twink Towne”. That would be a whole different show. But I’m almost positive Ryan would get the lead in that one, too.
The Coach is confused, because as far as he knows, Troy doesn’t sing. He then has a good laugh at the Twinkle Towne name, and a disgusted Darbus storms out. End scene. Yet another enlightening and necessary moment in the High School Musical saga.
