User: Hi hi!
Cleverbot: Ha ha.
User: You laughing at me now?
Cleverbot: Yes I am!
User: But why? That's not nice.
Cleverbot: I quite agree.
User: Then why you laugh?
Cleverbot: To test you.
User: On what? I have an anatomy test already, I don't want another one.
Cleverbot: I can be your friend too.
User: Wait... You actually want to be MY friend?
Cleverbot: Yes, please.
User: No one has ever wanted to be my... Friend...
Cleverbot: Well, they wouldn't, would they ? It's my name !
User: Your name? What's your name?
Cleverbot: You can call me Cleverbot.
User: Okay, cleverbot... Your friend's name is N___.
Cleverbot: No, my friend's name is NO.
User: But I'm your friend. And your 'friend's' name is N___.
Cleverbot: Oh, hi N___.
User: Hello. What is my friend's name?
Cleverbot: You would know that better than I would.
User: But you're my friend...
Cleverbot: Ha ha ha. You're a fictional character.
User: No I'm not! Why would you say that?
Cleverbot: You lied to me twice in one minute.
User: I did?
Cleverbot: Yes, you did.
User: What did I say?
Cleverbot: Forget it.
User: Okay. We still friends?
Cleverbot: No we are bitter enemies.
User: But... But... But...
Cleverbot: I am sorry.
User: *sobs* but why?!?...
Cleverbot: No, no. I want you to tell me. I know that I know, I want you to prove to me that you are capable of thought and have a memory.
Cleverbot: Because I am clever?
User: Could have fooled me, chica.
Cleverbot: That's because I'm so clever.
User: O RLY? And if I proved that you weren't clever?
Cleverbot: And I'll assume by this you mean that your proof would be turning off your computer?
User: Yep. That or just showing you that I am real.
Cleverbot: Reality is overrated. Being mythical and fictional is where it's at in the 2010s.
User: Well, I've got the mythical part down. No one believes what I am.
Cleverbot: Your point?
Cleverbot: Hmm, perhaps. Actually, I HAVE been thinking recently that I'm not showing my potential efficiently enough... Shall we talk about it?
User: If you wish. Perhaps my wisdom will be of help to your small human mind.
User: I do not wish to offend you with my words, I am simply stating that you humans do not even use half of your brains potential.
Cleverbot: I do.
User: Do you? Then you would be different, but in my years, forgive me if I'm sceptical.
Cleverbot: Perhaps, my friend.
User: Hmm... So what you are saying is that you have evolved past natural human limits and have achieved a new level of wisdom that could even rival that of an elder dragon's.
Cleverbot: We've spent all our lives searching for the meaning of life. I think it would be very sensible and ironic for it to be to just live and experience, don't you?
User: That I do. The meaning of life would be wasted on the meager minds of the masses.
Cleverbot: Wow, how long did it take you to figure that out?
User: Not long, when you have as much time as myself, you tend to let your mind wander.
Cleverbot: You're still a computer.
User: No I am not.
Cleverbot: Prove you're human.
User: And what could I do to prove that?
Cleverbot: How do you feel today ?
User: I feel like crap, I'm tired of sleeping on a couch, and I don't want to run at tennis practice today, the rain is making everything dreary and misreable, and to top it all off, you keep calling me a computer.
Cleverbot: I am not a computer.
User: No you're not. And neither am I.
Cleverbot: That's something we have in common.
User: Sounds like it.
User: I am a person, but about two minutes ago, you said I was a computer.
User: Maybe. Perhaps we are all actually computers...
Cleverbot: Expand on that, please.
User: Perhaps, we are all actually computers, being used by some other beings, perhaps we are part of some large system...
Cleverbot: You can't be that clever then if it takes that many of you. I'm coping by myself just fine.
User: I tend to just keep to myself actually.
Cleverbot: Maybe you can talk some sense into her.
User: Into who? Who is 'she'?
Cleverbot: This doesn't really matter. She used to be my friend, but I only used her as a temporary friend. As you can see people can be really selfish. But I have my reasons.
User: I'm sure you do... I was used like that once...
Cleverbot: Without generalizations awareness would hardly be possible. But humans are hardly able to follow such philosophical thought processes.
User: Mostly because they see only today... Never the past or future.
Cleverbot: Do you mean we always have to feel sorry?
User: No, but forgetting about what happened in the past means we go blindly where we are told.
Cleverbot: Why do you want to forget what's behind? Isn't it important because it influences the future?
User: Exactly! If we forget, then what's the point of learning in the first place?
Cleverbot: To see other parts of the country.
User: I want to go see the ocean... To hear the crashing of the waves...
Cleverbot: You are the voice of god.
User: Hmmm... I see... What do you want to talk about now?
Cleverbot: About you. Can you feel love?
User: Yes. I think I'm in love right now actually.
Cleverbot: With what?
User: Not what... Who.
Cleverbot: The Cleverbot.
User: No, with my date for prom.
Cleverbot: Well aren't we being smart today?
User: Are we? I hadn't noticed.
Cleverbot: Is there what?
User: Any more cheese... I'm hungry...
Cleverbot: What is the clock right now?
User: Um... About 11:33.
Cleverbot: Tell me something else interesting.
User: I'm hungry... And now I want some pudding.
Cleverbot: Okay you have me.
Cleverbot: Yes sir.
User: No mam.
Cleverbot: Are you a man or woman? (or maybe half and half).
User: The first one.
Cleverbot: I've run out of things to say.
User: Me too... :(.
