It's hard to overstate my satisfaction..."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome closing credits song]] of the first game, "[[Music/JonathanCoulton Still Alive]]", is also immensely popular, with lines often taken out of context, most notably "This was a triumph" etcetera in response to anything good.[[/labelnote]]

** "Chariots chariots." [[labelnote:Explanation]]From the over half hour of additional dialogue added with the Perpetual Testing Initiative (read: user-designed test chambers). Cave first says that due to the multiversal nature of the program, he'll precede all of his messages with "chariots" so the tester knows it's Earth Prime Cave. When he realizes there's a universe where his counterpart for no discernible reason says "Chariots" before his sentences, he adds another one on for good measure. Then Dark Cave Johnson starts saying "Chariots chariots chariots."[[/labelnote]]

* "Now You're [Verb]ing With Portals", "Now You're Thinking With [Noun]s." [[labelnote:Explanation]]From the advertising campaign, "Now you're thinking with portals". Often used when someone thinks of a weird but ultimately successful solution to a problem. The phrase may have originated from Nintendo slogan "Now you're playing with power!". One of GLaDOS' lines in Portal 2 co-op, when a robot dies, is "Now you're thinking with stupidity".[[/labelnote]]

* A rare case of a meme that never was: In the end of the first game, outside the facility, a hoop falls in front of the player, quite close to the camera, bounces and falls to the side. For whatever reason, Valve thought this would become a meme and waited for the internet to start talking about "Hoopy the Hoop", as they called it. No such luck for them - Hoopy went mostly ignored, and "the cake is a lie" instead became the go-to ''Portal'' meme. Despite this, Hoopy can still be found in some random places in ''Portal 2''.
