* "Now You're [Verb]ing With Portals", "Now You're Thinking With [Noun]s." [[labelnote:Explanation]]From the advertising campaign, "Now you're thinking with portals". Often used when someone thinks of a weird but ultimately successful solution to a problem. The phrase may have originated from Nintendo slogan "Now you're playing with power!". One of GLaDOS' lines in Portal 2 co-op, when a robot dies, is "Now you're thinking with stupidity".[[/labelnote]]

* A rare case of a meme that never was: In the end of the first game, outside the facility, a hoop falls in front of the player, quite close to the camera, bounces and falls to the side. For whatever reason, Valve thought this would become a meme and waited for the internet to start talking about "Hoopy the Hoop", as they called it. No such luck for them - Hoopy went mostly ignored, and "the cake is a lie" instead became the go-to ''Portal'' meme. Despite this, Hoopy can still be found in some random places in ''Portal 2''.

* {{The cake is a lie}} [[MadnessMantra the cake is a lie]] [[RoomFullOfCrazy the cake is a lie]]---- [[labelnote:Explanation]]Both [=GLaDOS=] and the escapee Doug Rattmann are a little cake obsessed, and later in the game there is a room where the phrase is written over and over again. Used when something is an obvious scam or whenever cake is mentioned. This one is definitely a DiscreditedMeme; using it in most Internet circles will get people seriously annoyed and in certain places probably get you banned.[[/labelnote]]
