** 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 announcer said 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 announcer said 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. ]]

** [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Wheatley's]] VillainousBreakdown during the final boss fight. His TheReasonYouSuckSpeech is less like an villain's evil gloating and more like the ranting of a heartbroken child who doesn't understand why everyone has turned against him, or maybe that of a scorned lover who hates you for choosing someone else. As he starts to lose it more and more, he accuses you of taking advantage of him all along as a means to escape, then abandoning him when he needed you most so that you could run off with your "best friend over there." He even brings up the fact that you didn't catch him when he dislodged from his management rail, which he honestly believed would have killed him, and hysterically accuses you of missing on purpose because you wanted to get rid of him. (This is made much, much worse by the fact that even if you honest-to-god tried to catch him, [[CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption it's impossible to do so.)]] What makes it even worse is that, if you listen closely to his voice during the rant, he sounds an awful lot like he's ''crying''.

** It doesn't help that the Earth is already ravaged by the Combine. Who knows what horrors are waiting for her on the surface? For all we know, she could've been shot by a Strider or turned into a Zombie.

* At the end of the game, [[spoiler:GLaDOS has Chell trapped on the elevator where the turrets could have easily delivered a lethal blow. However, she lets Chell go. GLaDOS is demonstrating how sincere her last words to Chell were and possibly even suggesting that she could've killed her at any moment but just chose not to; be it out of caring or curiosity.]]

** 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]].
