Since Valve makes numerous games that are quite popular, I was wondering if anyone had a good resource for listing the Easter Eggs in Portal and Portal 2. I've seen some web pages that list a couple, but I have a feeling that they are incomplete. Has anyone compiled them all in one location?

@Raven THANKS! That will be of immense interest to my daughter. :) – Larian LeQuella Aug 30 '11 at 4:52
I believe this question is a bit broad. Maybe it should be split in… (which is already very good), and another question just for Portal 1. Maybe also another question for Portal 2 multiplayer. – Denilson Sá Aug 30 '11 at 14:40
@Denilson Sa, good points. I was just hoping that someone had made a "collection" somewhere that I was unable to find. I know there is one for all the sounds that my daughter loves to attach to her emails. – Larian LeQuella Aug 30 '11 at 22:56
You would probably also enjoy the GlaDOS voice for TomTom. Not only is it her voice, but it also lies about direction and distance, and makes comments intended to provide an "atmosphere of extreme pessimism" – Rory Alsop Aug 31 '11 at 12:01

I couldn't find any comprehensive lists, so try the following:

You can also try searching the Half-Life Wikia for "Portal easter egg".

Addendum: The site will eventually move to

There's a Wiki for everything, isn't there? I should have known! Thanks. – Larian LeQuella Sep 5 '11 at 22:21
A less sarcastic tone would be nice, as well as some actual content for if (when) the link rots – Nick T Sep 5 '11 at 22:22
@nick-t I wasn't being sarcastic. If they had an easter egg page I would have linked to that. – CyberSkull Sep 5 '11 at 22:24
-1 CyberSkull, please provide more information in your answer then just "Search for this". The search itself doesn't appear to provide any useful results, which hurts this answer further. As was also pointed out by @NickT, providing nothing more then a link is also problematic. Not only does it force the user to go to another site, but if the link rots the question become useless. If you address my concerns, I would be happy to remove my -1. – Wipqozn Sep 6 '11 at 1:17
The idea is to answer, not just "Search for this" – Ither Sep 6 '11 at 17:37
