Client: Men are all alike.
ELIZA (a computer): In what way
Client: They’re always bugging us about something or other.
ELIZA: Can you think of a specific example
Client: Well, my boyfriend made me come here.
ELIZA: Your boyfriend made you come here
Client: He says I’m depressed much of the time.
ELIZA: I am sorry to hear you are depressed
Client: It’s true. I am unhappy.
ELIZA: Do you think coming here will help you not to be unhappy
Client: I need some help, that much seems certain.
ELIZA: What would it mean to you if you got some help
Client: Perhaps I could learn to get along with my mother.
ELIZA: Tell me more about your family
Client: My mother takes care of me.
ELIZA: Who else in your family takes care of you
Client: My father.
ELIZA: Your father
Client: You are like my father in some ways.
ELIZA: What resemblance do you see
Client: You are not very aggressive, but I think you don’t want me to notice that.
ELIZA: What makes you think I am not very aggressive
Client: You don’t argue with me.
ELIZA: Why do you think I don’t argue with you
Client: You are afraid of me.
ELIZA: Does it please you to believe I am afraid of you
Client: My father is afraid of everybody.
ELIZA: What else comes to mind when you think of your father
ELIZA: Does that have anything to do with the fact that your boyfriend made you come here
