* [[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.

** You think the song's sad enough on it's own, right? Well, guess what Someone made a stop-motion music video of the song with Rattmann and Chell. It makes the song go from tearjerking to outright '''depressing'''. You can watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUwkGFw226U here.]]

** [[HopeSpot It's implied in the Co-op mode, however, that]] [[spoiler: [=GLaDOS=] eventually got to link herself with the old facility's power grid, which means that she, along with her new batch of test subjects, hasn't seen and heard the last of Cave Johnson]].

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

* Once again YMMV, but [[spoiler: during the final boss battle, one of Space Core's lines. Even though he's a robot, in any other situation...]] --->[[spoiler: Space Core: Dad! I'm in space! [low-pitched 'space' voice] I'm proud of you, son. [normal voice] Dad, are you space? [low-pitched 'space' voice] Yes. Now we are a family again."]]

** Remember those mantis-men from the fifties? In one of the Earths, they successfully took over the building and apparently killed Cave.

*** For that matter, the obvious crash Aperture goes through as told by Cave's recordings and portraits. [[spoiler:First batch, he proudly congratulates you (presuming you are an Olympian or an athlete) on helping to contribute to science, and his portrait is a smiling young man. Second batch, he's muttering under his breath about having to recruit hobos and homeless people on the promise of sixty dollars, and his portrait is an older man going bald but still looking proud. The third batch has the defeated and sick Cave saying employee testing is now mandatory, and his portrait is a bitter and haggard old man.]]

** When you listen to the rant sound file outside of the game, you'll hear his voice cracking in almost a child-like fashion, as almost tearful frustration.

* Exile Vilify just brings tears to eyes. Especially after reading the Lab Rat comic, and learning about Rattman's past.
