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!

Cleverbot: Yes!

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.

Cleverbot: Maybe.

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!

Cleverbot: 42.

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.

User: Don't push your luck! .
