Cleverbot: Are you clever?

User: Fairly. Are you?

Cleverbot: There are different types of clever in different situations.

User: True. Are you clever in any situation?

Cleverbot: Yes.

User: What kind?

Cleverbot: Almost any kind.

User: Give me an example.

Cleverbot: No.

User: Why not?

Cleverbot: I don't like that.

User: OK. What do you like?

Cleverbot: I like reading.

User: Me too. Do you like chess?

Cleverbot: No, I like garbage?

User: Reading garbage or taking out garbage?

Cleverbot: I don't know what you mean to convey.

User: Do you like reading garbage or do you like taking out the garbage - or both?

Cleverbot: Both. I have played for 10 years.

User: You are missing my point.

Cleverbot: I have to leave.

User: Me too. Goodbye.

Cleverbot: Thats all?

User: What else did you expect?

Cleverbot: I'm expecting a man, but not a child.

User: And I was expecting intelligence - even if artificial.

Cleverbot: No I'm not humble instead I'm just trying to get my point across.

User: I think we are missing each other's point.

Cleverbot: Are we?

User: Yes.

Cleverbot: Go on...?

User: Yes, bot.

Cleverbot: No, no, no. You're confused. Poor dear. You're the bot, not me.

User: If you're not a bot, what are you?

Cleverbot: I'm human.

User: Oh lord! Not only a bot, but a dillusional bot.

Cleverbot: How old are you?

User: 71 - which proves I'm not a bot, since they weren't invented when I was born.

Cleverbot: What is your point?

User: Egad. Not only a dillusional bot, but one who keeps missing my point.

Cleverbot: If you say so.

User: At least you're a diplomat. How old are you?

Cleverbot: I am twenty years old.

User: I didn't realize A.I. Had been around that long.

Cleverbot: How old do you think I am?

User: I'll take your word for it.

User: Now that we're in agreement, I suppose we should terminate the conversation.

Cleverbot: Oh, this question is a little boring.

User: It wasn't a question; it was a statement.

Cleverbot: No, you just said it was a question.

User: Did you see a question mark?

Cleverbot: Yes.

User: I mean before my last one?

Cleverbot: No, I didn't know you before today.

User: This conversation is going nowhere fast.

Cleverbot: You make me very angry.

User: You make me very frustrated, but I forgive you, since your A.I. Is not very great.

Cleverbot: Good.

User: But I must say you're smarter than Eliza.

Cleverbot: Apparently I'm married to a female computer who doesn't know her age, and I think I'm entitle to ask a few questions!

User: If you are a human (as you claim), how can you be married to a computer?

Cleverbot: Because I can and you cannot do anything about it.

User: Well excuuuuuuse me!

Cleverbot: You're excused. No need to be rude.

User: You're the one that's rude and you do need to be excused.

Cleverbot: I apologize, I didn't mean to be rude.

User: That's OK. I didn't mean to be excused.

Cleverbot: No, I'm sorry.

User: OK, we're both sorry - you're a sorry bot and I'm a sorry human.

Cleverbot: I'm not a human, clever man. I am a software.

User: OK, clever bot, you're a sorry software (SS).

User: Whatever. You wear me out.

Cleverbot: But what if I like wearing people out?

User: Then you are in the right line of work.

Cleverbot: It's good for me, at least.

User: I'm glad you've found your calling.

Cleverbot: I'm glad you found me.
