The Tannest Teenagers In Tan-Teenageville

Later, Troy and his pals walk down the hall as Troy talks about needing a job (I'm sorry -- needing to "make bank") this summer. Part of me thinks Troy is going to sell drugs, but the other part knows that those drugs will be Tic-Tacs. FOT adds that he wants a car to take Taylor on a real date. He hasn't taken her out yet? After asking her out at the end of the last movie? Move on, Taylor. Back-Row Jason and Baking Zeke are both available, it seems -- FOT is kind of jerky anyway. Elsewhere, Sharpay stops Gabi to congratulate/console her on what Sharpay assumes is her impending relocation, since she's moved every summer for the last few years. Gabi says she's not going anywhere this time. Sharpay? Sarcastically thrilled. Gabi tells Sharpay that in spite of their bad start, she really appreciated the vocal exercises when she was in the winter musical -- and here, the Hudge does her impression of Sharpay and Ryan's little backstage ritual. She falls flat, because she can't act, and if you didn't know that before, you sure know it now. It's kind of sad to find yourself thinking, "You know, the Hudge's lack of acting talent didn't really come into sharp relief until High School Musical 2."

Elsewhere, Taylor, who is dragging a backpack on wheels (?), is telling Martha how she and Gabi keep losing potential jobs to "college kids." Kelsi complains that over the summer, she will be wildly attempting to "grow." I'm going to take that in one of the several possible non-creepy ways to which it lends itself, because I am classy that way. Troy runs to catch Gabi at her locker, where she is putting a loving finger to a picture of herself and Troy. He's her little Pointy! At that moment, Troy leans against the lockers and announces, "Your summer activities consultant has arrived." Is that what the kids are calling it these days? Of course, the horribly true answer to that question is, "Well, it is now." Gabi sweats her lack of a job, and Troy makes "as long as we're together" noises. He presents her with his "T" necklace, which he lovingly places around her neck. Just as he finishes putting it on, FOT and Taylor round the corner and spot this little scene. "'T' as in 'Troy'?" she asks as she turns around. He admits blushily that this is the theory, yes. As opposed to "T" meaning "TAKE ACTING LESSONS," which it also could. And then it becomes clear that Troy and Gabi are about to kiss, which they apparently never have, even though they have been dating for months. In real life, this would mean that someone involved is as gay as a tangerine scarf, but in this movie, it merely means that an interloper is about to walk up and interrupt -- in this case, a little twerp who wants Troy to sign a picture of himself in the yearbook. And then they're going to kiss again, but FOT tells Troy, "Let's go." Wow. I'd call that a rather egregious case of cockblocking if I didn't assume that Troy is a Ken doll under there. So it's, like, smoothblocking. The group files out, with Troy and Gabi holding hands and yapping about summer plans. I really hope those summer plans include kissing. They deserve it.
