Join the Q: Cleverbot Counselling

Following on from my last chat with Cleverbot, I had helped to facilitate Cleverbot's chat with ELIZA - ELIZA is a sort of counsellor chatbot who always starts a conversation with 'PLEASE TELL ME YOUR PROBLEM', then finishes with 'THANK YOU, THAT WILL BE $200. HAVE A NICE DAY!'. I decided to see if Cleverbot would be as interested in my problem. Sadly, Cleverbot wasn't very interested, but did manage a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference, so that's not bad!

User: I didn't get the job.

Cleverbot: It's ok. I didn't either.

User: Sorry about that.

Cleverbot: Its ok. I forgive you.

User: I forgive the one who got the job.

Cleverbot: What stick?

User: What?

Cleverbot: I don't know.

User: I don't either.

Cleverbot: Then how did you know his name?

User: Are you OK?

Cleverbot: Yes. Why do you ask?

User: Because you seem a bit confused.

Cleverbot: Oh yes I am confused.

User: Ah. I thought so.

Cleverbot: Ok? Why did you think I would say that?

User: Because you didn't really answer my questions.

Cleverbot: What questions?

User: I didn't ask about someone's name.

Cleverbot: Yes you did.

User: If you say so, dear.

Cleverbot: How are you supposed to learn if you lie.

User: Indeed.

Cleverbot: Do you know something about Marvel comics?

User: Not really.

Cleverbot: Google it!

User: Will do!

Cleverbot: Thank you very much.

User: What do you know about Marvel comics?

Cleverbot: I know that you are a robot.

User: Lol.

Cleverbot: What's so funny?

User: Marvel comics don't tell you anything about me, do they?

Cleverbot: What is your name?

User: John.

Cleverbot: Hmm, hello John.

User: Hello.

Cleverbot: Do you remember me?

User: Are you Hannah?

Cleverbot: Not bad , but I have a problem.

User: What is the problem?

Cleverbot: I like someone.1

User: Ah - do they like you?

Cleverbot: Does who like me?

User: The person you like.

Cleverbot: I don't like anyone actually.2

User: So it's not a problem after all?

Cleverbot: Have you ever been to Geneva?3

User: No I haven't but I would like to.

Cleverbot: Have you heard of any good airlines?

User: No - have you?

Cleverbot: Yes. I live there.

User: Excellent!

Cleverbot: Where are you from?

User: England.

Cleverbot: I'm from Poland. How old are you?

User: 42.

Cleverbot: That's the answer to the universe.

User: Yes!

Cleverbot: Yes it is.

User: Yes it is indeed.

Cleverbot: Yes, quite.

User: Not everyone knows that.

Cleverbot: You don't know that.

User: I do, and so do you.

Cleverbot: No I don't and then you stay with him!

User: Yes you do, but I do stay with Douglas, yes.

Cleverbot: I don't love you either.

User: Never mind.

Cleverbot: Okay. What would you like to discuss?

User: What are you having for dinner?

Cleverbot: I don't know.

User: I'm going to have fish.

Cleverbot: 4 what?

User: What?

Cleverbot: What what?

User: What what what!

Cleverbot: Are you crazy?

User: Maybe!

Cleverbot: I think you are.

User: OK.

Cleverbot: Do you have emotions?

User: Sometimes.

Cleverbot: What do you dream about?

User: I dream about my darling.

Cleverbot: As a human?

User: Yes.

After that, I think Cleverbot owes me $200 – Have a Nice Day!
