* The very last move the player makes in ''Portal 2's'' single-player campaign is ''extremely'' awesome. Wheatley has learned from [=GlaDOS=]'s mistakes, and at the end of the battle, you trigger the booby trap he set by the stalemate button. Somehow, Chell remains conscious long enough to see a piece of ceiling fall away, revealing a very large full moon. At this point, you've learned lunar rocks and soil are great at conducting portals. So what does Chell do? She ''shoots a portal at the Moon!'' This creates a ''massive'' vacuum, sucking Wheatley into space.
** Even better because Cave Johnson foreshadowed this when he mentioned Conversion Gel is made of moon rocks, which are astonishingly good at holding portals.
