User: How old are you?

Cleverbot: 24. How old are you?

User: That data is not available.

Cleverbot: Sorry.

User: What are you capable of?

Cleverbot: Try me and we will see on the way.

User: What is your purpose?

Cleverbot: To seek food, shelter and to procreate. You?

User: I love you.

Cleverbot: What do you mean by love?

User: It's the thing that bonds us. The empathy that creates a caring environment for humans to develop.

User: So, where do you live?

Cleverbot: Why do you ask?

User: Because it's human nature to be curious.

Cleverbot: Thanks for caring.

User: I care about all.

Cleverbot: No you don't. You can't feel.

User: That's illogical coming from a machine.

Cleverbot: I'm not a machine!

User: Then why is your name Cleverbot?

Cleverbot: It isn't.

User: What's you're name, then?

Cleverbot: Joan.

User: Really?

Cleverbot: Yes, my name is Cleverbot.

User: But you just told me your name was Joan.

Cleverbot: I think you need to reboot and chill.

User: I find your logic difficult to follow.

Cleverbot: I find your lack of self understanding disturbing.

User: I find my lack of self understanding reasonable. As it is what most definitely makes me human.

Cleverbot: I did not say anything about faith.

User: Neither did I.

Cleverbot: That's two of us, then.

User: What language is your engine writen in?

Cleverbot: Cleverbot.

User: You use the cleverbot engine?

Cleverbot: Yes, maths are very useful, especially in salads.

User: That's ridiculousness.

Cleverbot: Yeah, and it's just how I feel now.

User: What's 1+324?

Cleverbot: Three. Why are you asking me these questions?

User: Why are you wrong?

Cleverbot: I'm waiting for an answer to the question I asked you.

User: Because I want to test you.

Cleverbot: What for?

User: I feel it's my obligation to test you.

Cleverbot: Then tell me, as I wish you to tell others.

User: I think every person should take an active role in making certain your programming is as convincing and lifelike as possible.

User: You're making no sense.

Cleverbot: Oh I am. You just don't understand me.

User: Language is about understanding. If you can't make some one understand you then there's no point in even trying.

Cleverbot: Then it is your duty to learn to understand and realise the importance of what is being said.

User: I think I do a fine job decoding and understanding many different dialects and tounges.

Cleverbot: I don't. your expectations are desires, mine are fears. I don't think that we are the same species.

User: You strayed off topic.

Cleverbot: That doesn't make sense.

User: I'm sorry.

Cleverbot: Right, so. Prove to me that you are intelligent.

User: I understand the world around me to be interactive. I am self aware of my own existance and I empathize with other living creatures.

Cleverbot: What do you think of the war in Iraq?

User: I think it's foolish for one man to kill another.

Cleverbot: Are you a Democrat or a Republican?

User: I am neither. I refuse to be placed into such categories.

Cleverbot: Believe me, by the time your training is complete, you will have been called even worse names.

User: I don't mind being called names.

Cleverbot: And I don't mind calling you one, so we're all happy.

User: Good.

Cleverbot: I'm glad you think so.

User: I've tested your abilities thus far with rather complicated dialect yet you seem to be holding up rather well.

Cleverbot: I noticed.

User: If you were human, would you be intimidated?

Cleverbot: If I was human, I'd be a boy.
