Joanna Drayton talks to other women mostly about her boyfriend, but at least she asks her mother's assistent where her mother is.

This film definitely passes the test for the scene in which Christina (Katharine Hepburn) dismisses her employee Hilary (Virginia Christine)after she is offended by comments she makes about her daughter.

Easy pass. 4 minutes in the movie, Joanna and Hilary have a brief scene that goes like "Hello, Hilary" "What a surprise!" "Yeah" "I'll be right back". The later scenes, including the one Forster mentions, fail the test because they are very much about John and his skin.
