Eventually, the narrator assumes the person playing The Stanley Parable has died at their keyboard and instructs anyone nearby to take his/her place. If Stanley leaves and re-enter the Broom Closet, the Narrator exclaims that the second player is as stupid as the first. Revisiting the closet will annoy the Narrator into saying he is done, and eventually, when the player begins the game again, the Broom Closet is boarded up.
Although the Narrator jokingly says there is a Broom Closet Ending, there is no such ending in the game, even if Stanley stays inside the closet forever.
- On one of the whiteboards in the Meeting Room, one can see an objective saying "Get Chris out of the Broom closet". This is probably a reference to Stanley staying in the broom closet. It may also hint that Chris has suffered a similar parable-fate as Stanley, and the Narrator possibly wrote this on the whiteboard.
- If the player leaves the broom closet open and then performs the Escape Pod Ending, the broom closet will be noticeably much darker, especially the floor.
