  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Brenda: Silver, what are you doing?
      Silver: Nothing. Paying attention. Sorry. Checking my blog. Big in Bolivia. Who knew?

    • Brenda: If the audience is not standing on their feet at the end of tomorrow night, I will personally kick their asses.

    • Naomi: Mother, why are you still in bed?
      Tracy: Why aren't you at school?
      Naomi: Because school let out. It's been nine hours since I said "I love you" and "bye". I was standing here in the doorway. Remember? You were laying in bed, being pathetic.

    • Harry: Please, tell me this is nothing like "Mamma Mia".
      Kelly: Oh, I loved "Mamma Mia". I saw it twice on Broadway.
      Harry: Broadway, Topeka playhouse – big difference.
      Ryan: Yeah, this one's not quite "Mamma Mia", trust me.
      Harry: Well, good news.
      Ryan: "Spring Awakening" is about kids discovering their sexuality and, you know, fighting the oppressive morals of society in 1891, but, you know, with rock music.
      Harry: I take that back.

    • Tabitha: (sees Harry and Debbie kissing) Sometimes I ask the Lord to take my sight away.

    • Tabitha: Men of the theater are bons vivants, dear. One day, they're fumbling with your bra in the back of a '52 Chevy, and the next, they're off to Mykonos to set up house with a stagehand named Phillip.

    • Charles: What's going on, Tracy?
      Tracy: Well, let's see. Last time I checked, you left your wife and daughter for a life at the beach house with your longtime whore. Did I leave anything out?

    • Debbie: You want to talk about it?
      Annie: No, I would rather hit myself repeatedly with a hammer.

    • Annie: I like Ty. A lot.
      Debbie: You said the same thing about Jason in "The King and I".
      Annie: Yeah. Well, Jason was big, and sweet, and Kansas. Ty is tall, and skinny, and cool, and he's got these ears that stick out like little elves.

    • Brenda: All right, Silver, you're the stage manger. What are you gonna do?
      Silver: (screams loudly) Has anybody seen Adrianna?

    • Naomi: This is all dad's stuff.
      Tracy: You bet it is.
      Naomi: What are you doing with it?
      Tracy: Giving it to the Malibu mission. So one day soon, your father will step out of his beach house and see a homeless man wearing his tailor-fit Armani, and he will think of me.

    • Dixon: (about Silver) You know, she's a big pot of mean. Just big, seething, hot pot of mean.

    • Brenda: I forgot what it was like to be in high school. You know, the pressure on these kids, and you should have seen Adrianna's mom. How do you do this every single day?
      Kelly: Oh, it's not easy, but it's not always quite so "High School Musical". I mean, I try to help them as much as I can, but sometimes I have to remind myself it's okay for these kids to make mistakes. I mean, we did.
      Brenda: Oh, I'm aware. I didn't forget everything about high school.
      Kelly: Yeah, but sometimes don't you wish you could?

    • Silver: You know, you actually did a pretty good job tonight, Dixon.
      Dixon: Well, thank you, thank you. Back at you.
      Silver: Whatever.
      Dixon: Is there anything in this whole world that you actually do care about?
      Silver: I cared that your sister got through her performance without knocking over any set pieces.
      Dixon: Okay.
      Silver: Or sounding like an amnesiac. And that I didn't get blamed for ruining the show.

    • Naomi: Hey, what's going on?
      Annie: What's going on is I came here tonight fully prepared to have sex for the first time. Here I am at the "Roosevelt" in Hollywood about to give it up for the first time to some guy that I barely know. This whole world that you guys live in might be fine for the two of you and all of your friends with all of their benefits, but it is definitely not fine with me.

    • Ryan: The tricky part of teaching is being friendly without becoming their friend.

    • Annie: And told my mom, who turned it into an after-school special sex talk.
      Silver: What's an after-school special?
      Annie: Google it.

    • Harry: The boys here aren't the same as they are in Kansas.
