Pretty much half the cast is female (and named). There aren't many one-on-one interactions between the different main characters and their story arcs. The only real talk I remember is between Ash and Rosita, however it's about Ash's ex-boyfriend an their recent break-up.
There is however a conversation between Meena and her (unnamed) Mother about Meenas performance anxiety and participation in the contest, so it kinda fits?

(I'm not sure, do the talking characters need to be named as well?!)

Well, Becky asks Ash for her glasses back, right?

The context makes the whole thing about Lance (Ash and later Becky's boyfriend) but the line isn't about a guy.

That is the only time that two named women talk to one another, and since Becky has a smaller part than most of the unnamed extras in the film, this is a dubious pass at very best.
