Portal is a game with a lot of character, even if it doesn't have a lot of characters. It's atmospheric, immersive, challenging, innovative and humorous. So what if you'd like to add a little more Portal to your life? Well, you could build your own portal device, good luck with that. For starters, you'll need a viable power supply, and I know for a fact lemons won't work. Now limes on the other hand...
While you're mulling over the finer points of citrus fusion, maybe you'd like to listen to some Portal game sound clips and relive what got you started down this crazy road? I took the trouble of looking them up for you. No, no need to thank me, Portal game sound clips are my reward.
However if you really would like to thank me, perhaps you could give me royalties on that portal gun patent? Just a thought.
Beyond the Dark Portal... Clips
So by now, you've probably had your fill of Portal clips. If you haven't then you have a problem. A problem other than the obvious one, that you haven't had enough Portal clips. Well I'm going to help you with your little problem, and later on, I may call on you for a favour in return. You owe me.
Revisiting Soundboard.com, we see that they have yet another large collection of clips from Portal. These sounds range from more GlaDos clips, to various samples from the gleefully violent, yet understanding turrets to the unexpected and eminently catchy Portal credits song, "Still Alive".

It's not all work at Aperture Science however, GlaDos is always on hand to provide amusing facts.
Of course, there are plenty of good times to reminisce over, I feel privelidged.
And finally, the collected Audiomicro Portal samples:
Here is the front end, and here is the beginning of the archive.
By now you've no doubt had enough Portal mp3 samples to last a life time, or at least until your next fix. Perhaps if you'd got on with constructing that handheld portal device like you originally planned instead of wasting your time listening to samples, you'd be able to hear portal sounds whenever you pleased.
You watch yourself though, eh? This is a slippery slope you're on; first you're listening to clips of hilarious Portal related shenanigans, the next you're affixing blue and orange port holes to your house and making "bloop" noises every time you enter a room. I know, I've been there.
