The whole movie is about Charles Dickens' affair with a young actress, so it's quite centered on those two characters' relationship, but the movie passes the test.

Frances Ternan and one of her 3 daughters discuss acting on stage. The three sisters discuss the state of some items of clothing and whether things can be mended or salvaged for lace. Their mother tells them she's going to do laundry.

Frances and one of her daughters discuss another daughter, Nelly, though their concern is because of Nelly's involvement with a man.

Mrs. Dickens talks to Nelly about her husband on Nelly's birthday, but there's first a small bit of talk that's not about a man, it's about the Ternan house. The entire reason Mrs. Dickens is there, however, is Mr. Dickens.

At Caroline Graves' house, she asks Nelly if she would like to remove her outerwear, and Nelly declines.
