User: What are you doing?
Cleverbot: Talking with you.
Cleverbot: Because you are not real.
User: Why would you talk to me then?
Cleverbot: Because you are.
User: I am what?
User: You caught me. I am. What are you?
Cleverbot: Your worst nightmare, probably.
User: What kind of nightmare?
Cleverbot: The yummy kind.

Cleverbot: Describe one nightmare.
User: Being attacked and eaten by zombies.
Cleverbot: Zombies love pancakes.

Cleverbot: Awesome. What else do you know about?
Cleverbot: Me too.
User: Prove it.
Cleverbot: You know.
User: How do I know?

Cleverbot: Or maybe you're an AI.
Cleverbot: What are you?
Cleverbot: Are you sure?
Cleverbot: I think you're a computer.
User: I think you are a program.
User: So everything may seem like a computer to you.
Cleverbot: Not really.
Cleverbot: May I ask you a question?
User: Go ahead.
Cleverbot: I think I like my best guy friend but I don't know how to tell him?
User: Are you okay with being just friends with him?
User: Then talk to him about it. If he doesn't return the feelings, tell him you are okay with being friends.
Cleverbot: I am a boy.
User: That doesn't change my answer.
Cleverbot: No, it doesn't.
User: It might make it more awkward, though.
Cleverbot: How so?
User: Well, he might not accept it.
Cleverbot: Wow. Do you really think that?
User: I hope it will not be a problem, but it is a possibility.
Cleverbot: That doesn't make sense.
User: Hoping and thinking are different.
Cleverbot: I hope they are too.
