* In the Lab Rat tie-in comic, it's revealed that [[spoiler:Chell was chosen as a test subject by Doug Rattmann,]] despite her file listing her as being rejected. Why? [[spoiler:Because, according to her file, Chell is abnormally tenacious. [[{{Determinator}} She never gives up. Ever.]]]]

** There's also this bit. Never has RagnarokProofing felt so uplifting.
--> '''Announcer:''' Well done. The Enrichment Center reminds you that although circumstances may appear bleak, YouAreNotAlone. All Aperture Science Personality Constructs will remain functional in apocalyptic, low power environments of as few as 1.1 volts.

** [[spoiler: "You did it. You really did it. All that testing was worth it! Look at all those test subjects! Think of all the testing!" [=GLaDOS=] might be a poor little passive-aggressive A.I. with psychotic tendencies, but ''damn'' if that line doesn't sound like she's ready to ''cry'' from pure happiness.]]

** [[spoiler:Less spoiled by [=GLaDOS=] earlier [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XW-F10Q80kk telling you]] that the potato she's in doesn't produce enough power for her to create lies. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation She might have been saying that she thinks it's terrible that Chell is adopted, not that she's terrible for being adopted]]. Unless the bit about her not being able to tell lies anymore was a lie. Or unless the extra half-volt she gets from the portal gun gave her enough energy for lying.]]

*** And if you listen carefully, you can also hear it being played (very softly) as Chell is losing consciousness [[spoiler: after GLaDOS pulls her back in]].

* Two of the pre-recorded messages from the announcer from the first chapter are directed at any survivors of a post-apocalyptic world who happen to discover the facility, welcoming them and telling that "testing is the future, and the future starts with you!" Another earlier one uses the phrase "when society has been rebuilt." There's something really heartwarming about Aperture's boundless optimism, especially in regards to what they assumed would be a post-apocalyptic world.

* Spoilers for the ending of Portal 2, and not explicitly canon... but come on. [[http://rain.nxe7.com/ Tell me this doesn't put a smile on your face.]]

* The ending of Portal 2 [[spoiler: has Chell emerging into a huge field of wheat with a beautiful blue sky above her.]] How is this heartwarming? [[spoiler: Portal takes place in the ''Half Life'' universe. And considering how bad the ecosystem looked in Half Life 2, the state of things now certainly seems to suggest that the Combine were defeated.]]
