** At the beginning of ''Episode One'', Dog shaking his head after Alyx asked if he did the math was unintended (specifically, a run-through of the dialogue before the accompanying animation was finished had Dog insert his head-shaking idle animation with perfect comedic timing). It was funny, so they decided to ThrowItIn [[invoked]].

* StupidityIsTheOnlyOption: During a certain point in the Citadel level the player are left no choice but to [[spoiler:climb into a Stalker pod in order to advance. And after being (of course) captured, stripped of your weapons, and escaping due to a DeusExMachina, you are later required to step into another, identical, pod, ''and be captured again''.]]

"Unitedstatian" is not a word and the dictionary definition describes it as "relating to or characteristic of the United States or its inhabitants"
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: City 17 is meant to be in Eastern Europe, yet all your fellow citizens are apparently Unitedstatian (except Odessa Cubbage, who appears to be English, and the Combine radio operator, who has a seemingly Indian drawl). This is half-explained by the fact that City 17 is the largest of a number of "City #" megacities around the globe, and that most of the human population (minus the Resistance, of course) have been ferried around. It would certainly explain how all the Black Mesa folks ended up there. Father Grigori seems to be one of the few (if not the ''only'') exceptions, who looks and talks like someone raised around the general vicinity of City 17.

* RememberTheNewGuy: Magnusson in ''Episode 2''. Provides the page quote for that trope, in the form of WebVideo/ZeroPunctuation's confusion about his sudden appearance.

"American" applies to people all over both North and South Americas. The US does not have a monopoly on the title.

** The end of ''Episode 2''. The resistance have successfully defended White Forest and closed the interdimensional portal [[spoiler:then an advisor shows up and kills Eli with little warning.]][[note]] You know...aside from the G-Man telling you that something awful is coming, Alyx repeating the line to Eli, and all the very suspicious promises Eli makes of "we'll talk later." It's such heavy foreshadowing that it's hardly foreshadowing at all and more like hammering the player over the head with the idea that Eli's either going to die or be incapacitated in some way by the end of the game.[[/note]]
