An after-dinner conversation with ELIZA  
Conversants: banazir and ELIZA

You: What do you think of Hannah Gondtana?
Eliza: Does that question interest you?
You: It is a source of some trepidation, yes.
Eliza: You are sure?
You: Just look at him and you'll see what I mean.
Eliza: Does that question interest you?
You: There's no question he's a scary-looking freak.
Eliza: You are being a bit negative.
You: I don't think so.
Eliza: Why do you not think so?
You: How many brown-bearded men with long golden locks do YOU know?
Eliza: Does that question interest you?
You: I wouldn't call it an interest so much as a phobia.
Eliza: Can you elaborate on that?
You: The guy looks like the love child of Fabio and Hagrid!
Eliza: Please go on.
You: I really don't think I can.
Eliza: Can you elaborate on that?
You: As Isildur might say... NO.
Eliza: You are being a bit negative.
You: I don't know why you keep saying that when Gond plus Wig equals TERROR.
Eliza: Why do you not know why i keep saying that what gond plus wig equals terror?
You: It's an axiom, like Pag plus Wig.
Eliza: Please go on.
You: Don't go there. Really, don't.
Eliza: Please go on.
You: I don't want to talk about it. It's too traumatic.
Eliza: Why do you not want to talk about it its too traumatic?
You: It's just so WEIRD.
Eliza: Please go on.
You: It's... unnatural.
Eliza: Please go on.
You: It's an abomination upon the earth, a horror that I still see when I close my eyes.
Eliza: Why do you say your eyes?
You: Well, I mean that I don't need to be looking at WigPag for my imagination to remind me of the terrible image.
Eliza: Why do you say your imagination to remind you of the terrible image?
You: Admittedly, I have a vivid imagination.
Eliza: Can you elaborate on that?
You: I imagine your creator is quite LOSE, for example.
Eliza: Can you elaborate on that?
You: I don't have to. There have been whole books on conversational agents written about his FAIL.
Eliza: Why do you not have to there have been whole books on conversational agents written about his fail?
You: I rest my case.
Eliza: Why do you say your case?
You: Bye.
Eliza: Please go on.

We had to analyze Eliza in one of my computer classes. I recall looking for words that started with "no" that weren't negative just to check that the key string was "no".

Interesting that your Eliza wasn't rotating through a set of phrases, because I also recall babbling to it in French just to see how Eliza would react to stuff that was unparsable in English. I think there was a four phrase repeat: something like "How interesting", "Tell me more", "Can you elaborate on that?" and "Please go on".

Ah, those were the days...
