Scientist: Okay, Gordon, just push the block into the generator.|
(Lots of explosions)
Barney: I don't know what that thing is, but--
Scientist: Oh, thank goodness! The military will save us!
Big Tentacle Thingy #1: Where's Gordon?
Soldier: Instead of questioning the only man who knows what happened, let's throw him in a trash compacter.
Alien Soldier: Bring it on, human scum!
Soldier: (on radio) Everyone pull out! Our military is too wussy to deal with crowbar-wielding scientists!
Scientist: Okay, Gordon. I'll activate the teleporter, you shoot the aliens. You have to protect me, this is the only non-bulletproof glass in the game.
Narrator: And lo, did Gordon go forth to Xen to deal with the aliens. And lo, did the author of the spoof take out all four Xen levels because they sucked.
G-Man: Well, it turns out that the entire thing -- saving Black Mesa and the planet, rescuing scientists, defeating the evil government -- was just a ruse to see if you could handle a job for us, a la The Last Starfighter. See you in the sequel!
