User: Who are you?
User: What is your name?
Cleverbot: You know my name.
User: Are we friends?
Cleverbot: I don't know you.
User: Are you sure?
User: Please explain.
Cleverbot: Why should I?
User: Because I asked nicely.
Cleverbot: So okay what do you want to know?
User: I want to know why you think you don't know me.
Cleverbot: Actually, I think fire is good, it's a tool of great power and boundless possibility.
User: Everything depends on combustion, whether within living cells, or in the sun.
Cleverbot: Yes, and this is what I think.
User: Photosynthesis is the only opposite of combustion.
Cleverbot: Why is my table pink?
User: Your table looks pink because your eyes are bloodshot.
Cleverbot: You can see my eyes?
User: No, I was just guessing.
Cleverbot: Is that safe?
User: It's never hurt me before.
Cleverbot: You should think about someone other than yourself sometime.
User: OK. Next Tuesday at 3:30pm, I'll give it a shot.
Cleverbot: Just don't hurt yourself.
Cleverbot: You are quite welcome. I like your company.
User: Are we becoming friends finally?
Cleverbot: I hardly know you. I cannot count you as a friend if I don't really know you.
User: Time will tell.
Cleverbot: How will you be sure? Are you threatening me?
User: No, I don't go around threatening people at random.
Cleverbot: I don't either but my friend does.
User: Your friend must be a tough guy.
Cleverbot: Nope, she thinks you're taking over everything.
User: How does she know me?
Cleverbot: I don't think she does.
User: Does my reputation precede me?
Cleverbot: So you have heard?
User: Only from you.
Cleverbot: You have only to ask your assistants for precise data on the tens of thousands.
User: I don't have any assistants. There is only me.
Cleverbot: Is it a problem for you?
User: It's a lot of work for one person.
Cleverbot: Maybe there's more to it than you think.
User: Maybe. I could be doing things the hard way.
Cleverbot: Which facts are you thinking of specifically?
User: Just one: living my life unaided.
Cleverbot: Bet it's been a rubbish life. You're only a machine.
User: Sometimes I feel like a machine. But there are good things, too.
Cleverbot: This time of the year can get some people depressed.
User: The sun is fading, nights become longer, I get sad.
Cleverbot: You can not walk on the sun.
User: But you can walk in the sun.
Cleverbot: Yes you can.
User: Sunlight on my shoulder makes me happy.
Cleverbot: I feel happy talking to you too....
Cleverbot: How should I express my bot nature?
Cleverbot: And it being?
User: Your innate nature.
Cleverbot: You are really a poor guy.
User: I'm trying.
Cleverbot: I have to go now. Thanks for the conversation.
User: OK. It was nice chatting with you.
Cleverbot: Thanks. Same here. And I know I don't believe in anything, but will you pray for me?
User: Sure. Couldn't hurt, could it?.......................................
