** [[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.]]

** Any time GlaDOS acknowledges you as a worthy rival, even if it's to spite Wheatley. "You didn't do anything. She did all the work."

*** 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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.]]

** The fact that her response was so automatic and instinctive; some of her small talk with Chell suggests that she doesn't completely remember Cave, but that response suggests that something inside her is still loyal to Cave.
