Cave Johnson and Doctor Venture would be great frenemies. They would bond over their hatred of Black Mesa but would always gloat every time the other one’s company lost a contract or blew up a laboratory. They’d talk about it in the tone of a…

Jonas had friends, a little group to hang out with, super villains to arch, space stations to build, while Aperture had to work on Government contracts and scrape by while Black Mesa stole their technology and livelihood.
I think Venture and Co. realized that Cave could be a bad guy if he was pushed too far, so they tried to include him in things.
Invite him over, Jonas would make fake projects for them to collaborate on;
“Cave, I’ve got this pickle of a problem, and I knew the only person I could turn to was the head of Aperture Science himself…..yup, just come on and swing by.”
Although I am sure some contempt would have arisen with Jonas’ sexual apetite, so he’d never bring Caroline along. He assumed he had no one at home because he didn’t like to talk about his estate or personal life.
“Let’s just get to business Jonas.”
The more I think about this, the more I really want more of this.
and I doubt Cave would have ever uttered to Jonas about the existence of GLaDOS. That goes a little too far into Super Villain territory.
