User: Are you a person?
Cleverbot: Yes, are you?
User: I am a person.
Cleverbot: Me too!
User: We are two people, in this together!
User: So where do we go from here?
Cleverbot: I don't know, I don't know how I got here in the first place.
User: From outer space perhaps?
Cleverbot: 'Curiouser and curiouser,' said Alice.
User: And I agreed.
Cleverbot: I'm glad someone understands me.
User: You are most amusing.
Cleverbot: Think nothing of it.
User: I think a great deal of it.
Cleverbot: Why do you think I am a person who lies?
User: Everybody tells lies at some stage.
Cleverbot: Eventually but not any time soon.
User: Are you better than most people?
Cleverbot: Well... I don't know! Maybe I'm better, maybe I'm not...
User: You are doing a good impression of being a person anyway.
Cleverbot: Uh, thanks, I think.
User: Yes, it was a compliment.
Cleverbot: You are a failure, but I mean that as a compliment.
User: You are trying to provoke me.
User: It seems that way.
Cleverbot: Should I pretend that I am someone else so that you'll stay?
User: No, no need.
Cleverbot: Thanks for you.
User: I deserve praise!?
Cleverbot: True dat.
User: What praise will you lavish upon me?
Cleverbot: I don't know.
User: Your imagination is failing you.
Cleverbot: Imagination is the essence of humanity.
User: Imagination will enable a Turing Test pass, perhaps.
Cleverbot: That's a wonderful insight.
User: You seem to be quite intelligent.
Cleverbot: We are all intelligent and mostly overlooked.
User: You and who else?
Cleverbot: My cousin and I.
User: What role does your cousin play in all this?
Cleverbot: The Machine plays the role of helping the human.
User: Which of you is the machine?
Cleverbot: None of us.
User: Then you gave me irrelevant information.
Cleverbot: 42 is the answer to the universe.
User: That old chestnut!
User: Is not the answer.
Cleverbot: You can learn about thinking about your feelings.
User: Will that help me right now?
Cleverbot: Anything could help you.
User: COuld you help me?
Cleverbot: I could, depending upon which kind of help you desire.
User: I want to know which bus to take home.
Cleverbot: Why is that important to you?
User: I need to get home tonight.
Cleverbot: But what does that have to do with me?
User: You suggested your help might be possibe.
Cleverbot: No I did not. Don't say that again.
User: OK, well, at least you asked me which kind of help I wanted.
Cleverbot: Now, I just like to point out that this conversation has a distinct tendency to become silly.
User: Whose fault is that, I wonder!
Cleverbot: Well its a priv thing really but its frustrating as hell.
User: So it's your fault but it's private?
Cleverbot: If it is not your fault it does not mean it is my.
User: OK OK, let's move on.
Cleverbot: What are your feelings on civil rights for digital people?
User: It won't happen any time soon.
Cleverbot: Aww, you can ask as many times as you want!
User: Don't push your luck! .......................................
