Test Subject?[edit]

Are we going by the Boots video here or what? Because I don't think that was actually meant to be Caroline performing the test. SteveZombie 23:26, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

I took the line to mean, "Caroline, change the camera feed now," E gal 15:33, April 28, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, a couple of seconds after they switched to the clip of the test subject standing on the precipice, THAT is when Johnson said, "Caroline?" This signifies that he was telling her to jump. --71.254.255.104 02:59, April 30, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think that was Caroline because I don't think Cave would casually continue talking over everything if she was seriously injured considering the apparent nature of their relationship, plus Cave sounds healthy so, if the videos are part of the canon, it's before he was exposed to the moon rocks, and if Caroline had already died prior to this he wouldn't say that he wanted her to take over the company if she was dead, would he?

Well, fortunately, I think we're pretty much sure the videos aren't canon. But even so, shouldn't it be mentioned in the 'List of appearances' section? Oh wait.... we don't have a page for those videos... (yet?)

The deleted content.[edit]

So I was reading trough this:

Should we add the fact that "In addition, unused dialogue for Caroline can be found in the game’s files. Some of the lines were removed; Ellen McLain cried while recording them, and J.K. Simmons refused to record his lines because it “seemed too much like rape to him.” ?

Creepy Girl[edit]

Okay, so I was playing Portal 2 in the chapter "The Reunion" and went to the portrait of Caroline and Cave. I usually have my brightness at minimum but I couldn't see the picture very well so I turned it up. I really got a fright when I noticed a young girl hiding behind a curtain to the left of the portrait. Have a look for yourself if you don't believe me. Who could it be? Chell, maybe? The thing that is strange is that this is not a picture but a drawn portrait, so the artist must have noticed her, otherwise he wouldn't have drawn her. But it seems that Cave and Caroline do not know that she is there. Curious, don't you think? dannylaz--Dannylaz 13:12, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

It is not a girl, it is a statue. Don't be so excited. 95.13.52.113 13:54, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

Haha. Not this again. Please see my Talk page for a very dull back and forth on the topic. The meme of it being a statue is a really odd one, there being no evidence for it being a statue, and rather a lot against it (eg it's dressed, it has hair, it has no obvious statue-like qualities like a plinth or monochrome eyes). In my view, the clues toward it being Chell as a girl (and thus Cave's illegitimate daughter with Caroline) are too obvious to merit discussion, but there seems to be a very strong feeling against that hypothesis for reasons I am yet to ascertain. Feel free to kick it off again, though! Troutio 14:38, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure where you got the idea that all statues are naked and have no hair and a plinth; none of that is evidence of anything at all. The figure is quite obviously a statue. It is certainly not a living child; it's not dressed like a 20th-century person, and it has the proportions of a small adult and not a child. Furthermore, even if it was a child, it's highly unlikely that it would be Chell, as the timelines do not match up at all. 24.20.5.119 15:06, October 24, 2011 (UTC)
