50 Shades of Cave magazine seen in the lobby
  • In the Aperture building lobby, a magazine rack displays a magazine with the headline ‘Fifty Shades of Cave’ over Cave Johnson’s face. This is a reference the erotic romance novel/film Fifty Shades of Grey.
  • In the Security Room on the left wall near the lift, Virgil can be found. This area however, is inaccessible in the final mod.
  • In Cave Johnson's dialogue just after leaving the lift, he mentions Crazy Harry. This is a reference to Crazy Harry from comedy show, The Muppet Show who is a pyrotechnic expert. This could also be a reference to Harry Callaghan who composed the music and voiced all characters except Virgil (he's voiced by Stig Finsen Sydtnagen).
