Viewing historical google chat sessions from my google email

Anyone know of a way to open up a google chat history, as a full conversation rather than having to click on each historical chat "message" to follow the conversation?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Turn on conversation view in your Gmail settings. After that clicking on a message will show the thread of the entire conversation.

How about without turning on Conversations as I don't want to disturb the format for viewing emails, only chat?  I appreciate that perhaps I cannot pick and choose maybe.

No, sorry. It's one or the other. But the setting's easily changed, so you can turn on conversation view only when looking at chat history.
