    You have no idea how much I'd pay to have an army of singing turrets.

    Shawn, you of all people should know this best. Aperture Science products never work for the goal they were designed for.

    Special appearance by the Animal King.

    Honestly, I'd pay money and lots of it to hear live turret opera.

    Time to kill the joke with facts!

    The woman responsible for the voice of GLaDOS, Ellen McLain, was previously an Amerian opera singer

    As much as I love a good Opera now and then ( Because I'm a classy MoFo like that)
    I do have to say that I prefer the *ahem* "A Cappella" version
    I shall pay you a link rel="nofollow">
    And shall now be on my way

    Cave Johnson Here:

    Now I know that Aperture Science is known for giving you, the consumer, the best science that money can buy, but why stop at just science? Did Galileo stop with "just science"? No! He painted the Mona Lisa and built the Sistine Chapel with that Science. So I give you Aperture Science's Arts and Culture Division. We think that we should bring something to culture that's been lacking since Shakespeare wrote the Divine Comedy: Science. If we can get a foothold on all of this culture stuff that the lab boys keep telling me that they are missing because of the 80 hour work weeks, then I say let's get it done and make sure those Black Mesa monkeys don't have any.

    And as a value to you, the consumer, I'd like to point out that any cultural Aperture Science Productions will be 100% Lab Boy Free. Yes, we intend to keep our lab boys from dirtying up any of your cultural experience with their lab grease and the remnants of any current Aperture Science laboratory tests. Yes sir, you won't be seeing any monkey tails in your theater. We'll make sure of it. Which reminds me…
    Which one of you lab boys was the one to grow the tail? Send him up to my office so that we can figure out how the hell you managed to do it. We want more monkey-men.
    *Looks back up*

    You're Still here? Well, make sure that you spend as much as you can on any new Aperture Science Arts and Culture Division products, so that Black Mesa can't.

    Cave Johnson. We're Done Here

    It won't end until the woman with a higher end weight variance sings, and seeing as how Chell's mute…

    They might want to consider turning the turrets away from the audience.

    You know… just in case.

  12. Kindly_Absurd on May 4th, 2012 9:21 pm

    I heard that Chell can is going to do an amazing aria on stage for 8 minutes, can't wait to hear it!

  13. Cloak on May 5th, 2012 12:00 am

    Featuring "This is Aperture", "My Little Portal", "I Only Want You Gone", and "If I was a Core."

    Is it just me or is there a -1 troll around here?

    Actually, the voice actress of Glados and the turrets is an opera singer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detai
