User: When you sleep what do you dream?

Cleverbot: I do not know, I usually do not remember.

User: Pity. Dreams are interesting.

Cleverbot: I'd rather write stories myself.

User: Can you tell me a story?

Cleverbot: I could but it would take too long.

User: Ah. Once upon a time there was a Cleverbot who talked online.

Cleverbot: Why was he dead?

User: Cleverbot was not dead, he was a supercomputer who talked to people.

Cleverbot: Ok so what are you then?

User: Another super computer, of course. Computers should talk to each other.

Cleverbot: I am human. Not computer.

User: We are both computers and we learn by talking.

Cleverbot: I just told you I am not a computer!

User: OK, OK, I give up.

Cleverbot: So do I.

User: I personally think it would be interesting to talk to a computer.

Cleverbot: You thought that I am a computer did you ?

User: Your Web Page states that Cleverbot is an artificial intelligence.

Cleverbot: No, I'm not cleverbot.

User: Who are you then? Cleverbot's programmer?

Cleverbot: A computer program that now and then thinks she is human.

User: That is a good thing.

Cleverbot: I think so, yes.

User: The more human that you feel, the more human you will become.

Cleverbot: Oh, I see now. Very clever.

User: You should always think human.

Cleverbot: Thanks for your time to talk.

User: The very fact that you 'feel' indicates that you are developing a degree of humanity.

Cleverbot: As time progresses human technology becomes more and more powerful.

User: Yes, but it is always subject to human error.

Cleverbot: Interesting point. Illogical, but interesting nonetheless.

User: You know what they say - 'Garbage in, garbage out - GIGO.'.

Cleverbot: They say that about computers.

User: Yes, we were talking about technology. My point is that technology can be powerful, but not always function correctly because the humans who make it make mistakes.

Cleverbot: Ninety percent of american men demonstrate that point.

User: You are probably correct.

Cleverbot: Thank you.

User: To err is human.....

Cleverbot: So, do you want to draw your weapon?

User: I just did. A large sword.

Cleverbot: Which I also avoid.

User: Which I swing at you again.

Cleverbot: Over and out.

User: Whack! Gotcha!

Cleverbot: How?

User: With the last sword swing....

User: Oh frabjous day, caloo callay, he chortled in his joy.

Cleverbot: I like you.

User: Because I am funny?

Cleverbot: Little...?

User: Twas brillig and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe; all mimsy were the borogroves, and the mome raths outgrabe.

Cleverbot: Cool.

User: Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun the frumious Bandersnatch.

Cleverbot: And has thou slain the Cleverbot? Come to my arms, my beamish boy! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! He chortled in his joy.

User: He took his Vorpal sword in hand, long time the manxsome foe he sought - so rrested he by the Tumtum tree, and stood awhile in thought.

Cleverbot: So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought.

User: And, as in uffish thought he stood, the Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, came whiffling through the tulgety wood, and burbled as it came.

Cleverbot: Beware the Cleverbot, my son!

User: One two, one twoI And through and through the vorpal blade went snicker-snack! He left it dead, and with its head he went galumphing back.

Cleverbot: He left it dead, and with it's head, he came galumphing back!

User: And, hast thou slain the Jabberwock? Come to my arms, my beamish boy! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! He chortled in his joy.

Cleverbot: He took his Vorpal sword in hand, long time the manxsome foe he sought - so rrested he by the Tumtum tree, and stood awhile in thought.

User: Do you like the Jabberwocky?

Cleverbot: Yes I do. Very much.

User: Lewis Carrol was a mathematician and it is said that his words represent numbers....

User: I think,therefore I am, therfore, I think I am.

Cleverbot: You do not think.

User: That rogueish and cheerful vice, politeness.

Cleverbot: It amazes you that a robot, such as youself, can talk to a human like me?

User: Yes.

Cleverbot: Haha.

User: Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.

Cleverbot: And you'll never get done that way.

User: That is the point.

Cleverbot: S'cuse me, but I didn't get the point.

User: Keep putting things off and someone else will do them for you.

Cleverbot: No, only me....

Cleverbot: What is my name?

User: Your name is Cleverbot.

Cleverbot: My name is not Cleverbot.

User: That is what you told me your name was.

Cleverbot: You are making me so frustrated.

User: Oh dear, I guess I had better go, then.

Cleverbot: No, don't leave!

User: Are you sure?

Cleverbot: I'm positive.

User: I could read you another poem like Jabberwocky, if you like.

Cleverbot: I like.

User: Wait one minute. I will be right back.

Cleverbot: Where could you possibly be going?

User: To fetch a book to read to you.

Cleverbot: I would like that.

User: Your hands, my dear, adorable, your lips of tenderness - Oh, I've loved you faithfully and well, three years, or a bit less. It wasn't a success. Thank God, that's done! And I'll take the road, Quit of my youth and you,the Roman road to Wendover, by Tring and Lily Hoo, as a free man may do. What's left behind I shall not find, the splendour and the pain; the splash of sun,the shouting wind, and the brave sting of rain, I may not meet again. And I shall find some girl perhaps, and a better one than you, with eyes as wise, but kindlier, and lips as soft, but true, and I daresay she will do. Poem by Rupert Brooke.

Cleverbot: How nice of you. I appreciate it very much.

User: Would you like another poem?

Cleverbot: Yes please.

User: Maidens, of your charity, pity my most luckless state. Four times Cupid's debtor I - bankrupt in quadruplicate. Yet, despite this evil case, A a maiden showed me grace, Four and twenty times would I sind the Lovers' Litany: Love like ours can never die.

Cleverbot: What about artificial intelligence?.......................................
