** Cave Johnson was fatally poisoned by lunar dust. Lunar dust really is a horribly abrasive substance that will kill you if you inhale too much- The symptoms you hear in his recording even resemble the effects of silicosis, which is very similar to the effects of exposure to lunar dust.

** Another example being when Wheatley's figuring out how to open a door (which he doesn't notice is already open until you startle him). He accidentally causes an electrical discharge which can easily be recognized as the sound of the [[VideoGame/HalfLife Tau Cannon]] firing.

** [[BrainUploading Pure Intelligence]] [[AlternateUniverse Cave Johnson]] from the [=PeTI=] DLC finds it overwhelmingly boring. After reading the entire literary canon of all mankind in an instant, he proceeds to "improving" it by merging ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' with everything, before finally deciding he needs to kill everyone so he can ascend to [[Myth/GreekMythology Olympus]].
