Jesse disagreed with the rating and said:
In the conversation between Margaret and Katerina, the subtext and point was that Katerina was hiding her romantic relationship with the male pilot. The actual words weren't what the conversation was really "about."

Matthew disagreed with the rating and said:
I remember a scene where the two flight attendants were talking to each other. However, you could not hear what they were saying, so they could have been talking about the Whip for all we know. That's the only scene in the film (unless there was a little one I forgot about) with two women talking to each other. There were several women in the film, even though they never met.
