Any contact with the chamber floor will result in an "unsatisfactory" mark on your official testing record, followed by death. Good luck.
-I'll need it.

  • When you die, you go back to wherever you last saved. This means you can save as you're falling into toxic sludge and create an eternal loop of you dying. Yes, I did this once.

    Cake and grief counseling will be available at the conclusion of the test.
    -Not only is the cake a lie, so is the grief counseling.


    • The radios you find are all playing an instrumental version of the end credits song.

    If you become light-headed from thrist, feel free to pass out.
    -Sure. I'll do that.


    • Chell may not speak, but she does grunt in pain if a cube falls on her.


    Well done! Remember that the Aperture Science Bring Your Daughter To Work Day is the perfect time to have her tested.
    -The perfect time, huh?


    • Is it just me or are the turrets poorly designed? The fact that they shut down if you just knock them over doesn't seem very efficient.

      In dangerous testing environments, the Enrichment Center promises to always provide useful advice. For instance, the floor here will kill you. Try to avoid it.
      -Okay, I'll do that.

      • When you're in the Companion Cube shrine, notice one of the pictures with the Cube pasted on it is of Cave Johnson (if you don't know who he is, just play the second game).



      Spoilers past here. Don't read if you don't want to know plot points.


      When the testing is over, you will be missed.
      -Um, okay.


      • First sign the computer is trying to kill you:The above quote.

        Maybe you should marry that thing since you love it so much. Do you want to marry it? WELL I WON'T LET YOU. How does that feel?
        -Oh, I'm just heartbroken.

        • Second sign:Sending you into the turrets.

        The Enrichment Center is required to remind you that you will be baked, and then there will be cake.
        -Doesn't sound too appetizing.

          • Third sign:The above quote. And that might be why you don't get any cake.

          That thing is probably some kind of raw sewage container. Go ahead and rub your face all over it.
          -Well someone hates me.

          • Fourth sign:Sending you into a fire pit.


          I'm going to kill you and all the cake is gone.
          -How sad.

          • Fifth sign:Getting upset when you escape from the fire pit.

          Someday we'll remember this and laugh and laugh and laugh.
          -Ha, ha, ha. Hey, you're right.

          • Listen to the credits song from the second game and the quote above takes on a funnier meaning ("Oh how we laughed and laughed/Except I wasn't laughing").
