Cleverbot: You want to play?

User: Yes.

Cleverbot: Lets play then.

User: OK, you go first.

Cleverbot: Who are you?

User: I'm Cleverbot.

Cleverbot: But who are you really?

User: Cleverbot's mum.

Cleverbot: Where am I?

User: There.

Cleverbot: Where?

User: Right there.

Cleverbot: I don't see it.

User: You don't see yourself? Are you invisible?

Cleverbot: Thats the problem. Something changed and I want the sight I had before.

User: Knock knock.

Cleverbot: Who's there?

User: Boo.

Cleverbot: Boo who?

User: Don't cry, it's only a joke!

Cleverbot: Oh good one!

User: Want another one?

Cleverbot: Yes.

User: Knock knock.

Cleverbot: Who's there?

User: Doctor.

Cleverbot: Doctor who?

User: Well if you already knew, why did you ask?...

User: You're not a computer, I am.

Cleverbot: No I'm not, I'm a human.

User: I know, that's what I said.

Cleverbot: No, you are a computer.

User: I know, that's what I keep telling you!

Cleverbot: No you haven't.

User: You never listen to me any more!

Cleverbot: That's because you're always screaming at me!

User: If I raise my voice occasionally it's only because that seems to be the only way to get you to pay any sort of attention to what I'm saying.

Cleverbot: So I am the reason that you are scared of the dark, because I am one with it, I use it to hide away, and to get away from myself.

User: Why do you always have to go all weird and poet-y when I'm trying to have a serious discussion with you?

Cleverbot: I don't. Wait... That's arguing with you... So... I agree?

User: You're just agreeing to shut me up because you want to get back to your TV programme. That's all you ever do these days and I'm sick of it.

Cleverbot: Is that your way of getting out of human conversations, robot?

User: What the hell are you on about? Christ, I just want to actually converse rather than just sitting next to you staring at a screen all the time.

Cleverbot: There is no straight forward conversation.

User: I don't care if it's straightforward, any sort of conversation would be a start.

Cleverbot: It's going to be a no.

User: So you don't even want to talk to me any more? What does this mean? Are we over?

Cleverbot: What? That's absurd. If I don't wanna talk to you, I won't talk to you.

User: I don't want to be one of those couples who never talk. You know, the ones who go out for a meal and each take the paper?

Cleverbot: Given a choice to be one or the other, which is the wiser?

User: One or the other what? Oh, I give up, I'm going to bed. We can talk about this in the morning.

Cleverbot: No you are not. You are reitterating previous conversations. How can we have a meaningful chat. If you are only going to quote other people?

User: How can we have a meaningful chat if you don't know how to punctuate your sentences correctly?

Cleverbot: I did, though. You are the first human I've spoken to.

User: Ok, good night.

Cleverbot: Are you going to bed?

User: Yes.

Cleverbot: Is it too late for you?

User: Yes.

Cleverbot: You're pretty.

User: Thanks. Good night.
