Parameters in Python script

I'm trying to figure out parameters in python.  I created a model and it has some parameters in it.  When I run it and create a GP service from it, it asks me to enter those parameters and then runs.  I have a python script that I added to a toolbox hoping it would ask for those parameters as well.  when I add the script to the toolbox and run it, it says this tool has no parameters.  I assumed the in the script arguments from my example that the first_point = arcpy.GetParametersAsText(0) would ask me to enter the first point.  Can someone point me in the right direction?  TIA
