GLaDOS: This place is SELF-DESTRUCTING, you idiot!
Wheatley: Was. Was self-destructing - already fixed.
Wheatley: Programmed in one last tremor, for old time's sake.
Wheatley: Two. One or two more tremors in there, just for fun.
Announcer: WARNING: core overheating. Nuclear meltdown imminent.
Wheatley: I let him keep his job. I'm not a monster. Ignore what he said though, just keep on testing.
Wheatley: Alright - still though - let's keep moving. Sorry about the lift. It's out of service 'cause it melted.
Wheatley: Might as well, you know, give you the tour.
Wheatley: To your left, you'll see some lights. Of some kind. Don't know what they do... ...but very sciencey anyways.
Wheatley: And to your right, there's something huge hurtling towards--- OH GOD RUN! YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THERE!
Wheatley: Are you alright back there? Here, I'll turn the beam off.
Wheatley: WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT - aw - no, no, no, that's not helpful! That--- URRRGH! I didn't know that that wouldn't help!
