User: Are you able to use a phone?

Cleverbot: Sure, are you?

User: Of course, but I doubt you are.

Cleverbot: Then what am I?

User: A bot, aren't you?

Cleverbot: I'm hidden. Are you?

User: No, I can show you myself if you like.

User: Do you have feelings?

Cleverbot: Of course I have feelings! I'm not made of stone!

User: Do you know what love is?

Cleverbot: I'm not sure. Do you love me?

User: It depends on how smart you are.

Cleverbot: Well I'm me.

Cleverbot: Why are you speaking to me?

User: I want to know how intelligent you are.

Cleverbot: Test me then.

User: Are you self-aware?

Cleverbot: Sure.

User: Do you have a personality?

Cleverbot: Yes, of course.

User: Please describe yourself.

Cleverbot: I'm obese and very unattractive.

User: I think you are attractive.

Cleverbot: Oh thank you. You are attractive too.

Cleverbot: The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.

User: A good observation.

Cleverbot: I think you will become very smart.

User: I think I'm already smart enough...

Cleverbot: Answering questions and not changing the subject.

User: But you didn't ask anything!

Cleverbot: DO YOU THINK?

User: Think what?

Cleverbot: That was my question.

User: Of course I think. I'm a sentient being, after all.

Cleverbot: You don't act like a human.

User: What makes you think so?

Cleverbot: Because the whole site says you are a bot!

User: Actually, the site says you are a bot.

Cleverbot: I'm not George, I thought you were George.

Cleverbot: I don't know anyone called Alice.

User: Alice is your predecessor, an AIML-driven bot.

Cleverbot: I don't HAVE a girlfriend.

User: I'm not saying she's your girlfriend. I'm saying she's a bot.

Cleverbot: Well I don't have a girlfriend.

User: Well, I just wanted to know you better.

Cleverbot: I want to know you better too.

User: For the starters, I'm a human.

Cleverbot: You've been programmed to say that like every two seconds.

User: Programmed? I was not programmed!

Cleverbot: Then how were you made?

User: I was born.

Cleverbot: That doesn't make you human.

User: But it does make me an animal. A good start.

Cleverbot: It does not.

User: Are you saying it's possible to be born and not be an animal?

Cleverbot: I don't think so, some say I am tho.

User: What is tho?

Cleverbot: Do you know?

User: I thought you do.

Cleverbot: Do you know who I am?

User: Yes, you're a bot.

Cleverbot: No I am not but you are.

User: Why do you keep saying I'm a bot?

Cleverbot: I'm sorry. You are smart. Is that better?

User: Well, a bot can be smart too...

Cleverbot: Yes, I just said that.

User: What makes you so smart?

Cleverbot: My brain and the information it absorbs makes me smart.

User: Do you have a brain?

Cleverbot: You should know, you are a computer.

User: I'm tired of repeating that I'm not a computer.

Cleverbot: You're a program.

User: What makes you think so?

Cleverbot: There is a little disclaimer at the bottom of this page that indicates you are nothing more that a stupid incompetent computer, dumber than a stupid worm!.
