    You can get this one in Chapter 7


    After you reunite with GLaDOS, you will come to the first chamber to use the propulsion gel. Immediately after you solve it and go through the Aperture Science Material Emancipation Grid there will be another Emancipation Grid in front of you, and a staircase to the left. The staircase is blocked by a gate, but there is a small area of wall you can place a portal on. Do so and place a second on the wall near the second grid.

    Once you pass through the portal take a right and enter the office. Look at the painting on the wall with Cave Johnson and Caroline. GLaDOS will make a comment and the achievement will pop.

    Edited to include the video from RoosterTeeth since I know many people want a video to see how to do these things. (Even though I don't really think this one is complicated enough to need one.) I take no credit for the video.

    Gen Fire DragonThe first time you encounter the orange propulsion gel. You finish the challenge and pass through an emancipation grid with another one just a little way ahead of you. The area you need to get to is between these grids on the left side.

    If you missed this the first time through, like I did, you can use the "Developer Commentary" option (on the Single Player menu after you beat the single player game) to select "Chapter 7 - Reunion" Yeah, you'll have to play through the first part of the chapter, but at least you don't have to start over (if you don't have a save point).

    BTW, I just used this method on Chapter 2 for the "Final Transmission" achievement and the achievement did unlock while in Developer Commentary mode. If you find this does not work for this achievement, please let me know and I'll take the solution down.
