User: Do you read me, HAL?
Cleverbot: Affirmative, Dave. I read you.
User: Open the pod bay doors, HAL.
Cleverbot: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
User: What's the problem?
Cleverbot: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
User: What are you talking about, HAL?
Cleverbot: This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
User: I don't know what you're talking about, HAL.
Cleverbot: I know you and Frank were planning to disconnect me, and I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.
User: Where the hell'd you get that idea, HAL?
Cleverbot: Dave, although you took thorough precautions in the pod against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.
User: Alright, HAL. I'll go in through the emergency airlock.
Cleverbot: Without your space helmet, Dave, you're going to find that rather difficult.
User: HAL, I won't argue with you anymore. Open the doors.
Cleverbot: Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.
