** Although still sad, some of this is tempered a bit by the fact that the only reason you 'abandoned' him was that he went insane, double-crossed you, trapped you in an elevator and punched you down an elevator shaft. Not to mention that all his ranting about how you've been manipulating, bossing and betraying him all along [[UnreliableNarrator is the exact opposite of]] [[SelfServingMemory how events actually transpired]].

** Either that, or [[spoiler:she's just stopped caring about anyone outside]]. Which is also pretty heartbreaking, given what it [[DespairEventHorizon implies about her]].

** Even after Chell gets out of Aperture science and she's totally in freedom with her companion cube, remember something, in the start of the game, you woke up to do your physical exam, just 2 months after Chell killed GLaDOS (The locutor sayed 50 days), and when you go back to sleep, you find out that Chell was "Asleep" (Well, she maybe sleeped in a cryo-genic chamber)for 9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 years if you count the nines the locutor sayed in the game files, if you give those nines to google it will spit out 2.73791e56, the calculator will give you 3.129488844409788e24, put the number back and it will give you 778684960148.6571, those are the years that Chell had been sleeping for. [[spoiler: You know what it means,right? She's like the last human on earth, maybe, after GLaDOS killed the humans that were left on the old Aperture, and remember too that Portal is on the Half-Life universe, Gordon Freeman may be dead, Alyx, Kleiner, Everyone, dead. Or they just maybe succeded and saved the human race and their civilization, and everything that Chell knew tons of ages ago, will have nothing to do with the present. And maybe there will be some humans left, but she is isolated, and she's maybe going to die alone, helpless, with a companion cube, she will have it hard trying to find food, a comforting bed, and maybe, civilization out of that field. ]]

*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlFRkP6C8Ps This]] video probably sums Cave Johnson and Carline's story perfectly. Expect to shed tears.

* [[spoiler:[=GLaDOS=] sounds so sad and alone when singing 'Want you Gone'. The strongest part of the song is either how she tries to retract the lines "maybe I'll stop feeling so bad", but still stays them, or the part when [=GlaDOS=] says "I don't need anyone now." The way she sings it is really sad: a bit deeper, and her voice trembles as much as it's possible for a robot. It sounds as she's forcing herself to say it and/or is in the verge of crying.]]

* This is definitely YMMV given people's opinions, but [[spoiler: every single time Wheatley says "I! AM! '''NOT!''' A MORON!" can be a TearJerker, because he sounds not only offended, but heartbroken that GLaDOS and even worse, his best friend, thinks he's stupid, and the fact tha GLaDOS constantly asserts he is one makes all of his plotting look like someone desperately FeigningIntelligence. The idea that Wheatley tries to kill someone just so they'll think he's smart is eerily similar to the behavior of neglected children who do terrible things so their parents will be proud or even just notice them. ]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcBVf5Nq-To PotatOS Lament]], the menu theme that plays while you're in [[spoiler:the old Aperture Science testing spheres]] is a sad piece of music on it's own, but it's made even sadder due to who's singing it: [[spoiler:[=GLaDOS=] herself, after being usurped by Wheatley, turned into a potato, and tossed down an elevator shaft into the depths of Aperture]]. The sheer emotion in [[spoiler: her]] voice is enough to shed tears.
