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?
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.
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.
Cleverbot: What's so funny?
User: Marvel comics don't tell you anything about me, do they?
Cleverbot: What is your name?
Cleverbot: Hmm, hello John.
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.
Cleverbot: Where are you from?
Cleverbot: I'm from Poland. How old are you?
Cleverbot: That's the answer to the universe.
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?
Cleverbot: What what?
User: What what what!
Cleverbot: Are you crazy?
Cleverbot: I think you are.
Cleverbot: Do you have emotions?
Cleverbot: What do you dream about?
User: I dream about my darling.
Cleverbot: As a human?
After that, I think Cleverbot owes me $200 – Have a Nice Day!
