* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Chell finally escapes from the facility, but there's no one in sight and she only has the clothes on her back. If you think about it with that in mind, returning the CompanionCube at the end seems like a very cruel parting shot from [=GLaDOS=], essentially saying "this is all the company you'll get from now on." It seems clear that the Combine were defeated, but as to the state of the world beyond that, who knows?]]
** On the plus side, she is standing in the middle of a field of evenly-grown wheat, so there is a very good chance of encountering someone living in what is at least an agriculture-capable society.
** Wheatley is [[spoiler: lost, alone and stranded in space.]] All he wants now is to take it all back and apologize.

** Digging around in console commands has uncovered a semi-functional [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Rocket Turret]]; while it doesn't track the player, it shoots a rocket ''immediately'' after something enters its laser sight (think Claymores from the original ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}'' in turret form).

** There's an easily-overlooked doorway in the old portion of Aperture that leads to what appears to be a dry-dock that once housed the [[VideoGame/{{Half-Life2}} Borealis]]. The achievement you get for finding it calls it "the missing experiment".

* AccentAdaptation: At one point, Wheatley slows down his MotorMouth and badly imitates an accent [[FunnyMoment because he thinks GlaDOS cannot hear him that way.]] Each dub takes a parody of accent from an overseas country to the "origin" country: American (Texan, specifically) in English, Argentinian in Spanish, Quebecois in French, Swiss German/Southern German accent in German.
