Spoiler warning!

During the first escape attempt in Portal 2 (when GLaDOS is still in charge) she opens a door for you which you can choose to go through instead of following Wheatley (the blue-eyed ball). What happens if you go there?

GLaDOS closes the door and the wall. Then she fills the room with a deadly neurotoxin and you die.

I just wanted to see the deer – juan Jun 6 '11 at 14:28
@Juan Manuel: It's a beautiful day out. Yesterday I saw a deer. If you come back, we can ride an elevator all the way up to the break room, and I'll tell you about the time I saw a deer again. – BoltClock Jun 6 '11 at 15:00
@TheAnnoyingPyro I didn't see the deer today, but I did see some humans. But with you here I have more test subjects than I'll ever need. – user56 Jun 7 '11 at 20:32
