There are 3 named women: Amy Fowler Kane, Helen Ramirez, and Mildred Fuller. Amy and Helen do have a conversation, upstairs in Helen's room at the hotel, but it is about a man: Will Kane.

Emily disagreed with the rating and said:
Though Amy and Helen do mostly talk about Kane, there are a few moments when their conversation diverges from him, if only for a few seconds., for example when Helens mentions how hard it is to be a Mexican woman there and Amy says she understands.
