Description

Admittedly, Eliza is no Dr. Melfi but she will listen to your “issues” as deftly as Dr. Melfi listened to Tony Soprano’s, delving out heaps of Rogerian empathy.

Are you stuck in the center seat on an airplane, listening to the ear shattering screech of the three year old sitting behind you as they kick the back of your seat to the rhythm of the Twilight Zone theme music?

Don’t go ballistic and end up tie wrapped to your seat by an air marshall. Talk to Eliza!


Eliza: Hello, Let’s begin, how are you feeling today?

Me: I dunno, I’m stuck here on this plane, in the center seat, listening to this rug rat screech it’s lungs out and I just want to open the emergency exit door at 30,000 feet and jump. I feel stuck.

Eliza: Did you come to me because you feel stuck?

Me: No, I came to you because it’s the next best thing to jumping.

Eliza: Why do you want to jump?

Me: GAH!

Eliza shall not in any event be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, special, incidental, or consequential damages, including, without limitation, loss life or loss of iPhone arising out of or in any way connected with the use or misuse of Eliza.

Eliza is based a computer program by Joseph Weizenbaum designed in 1966, which parodied a Rogerian therapist, Eliza will draw you out by asking you questions.
