In Zelda's first scene, when she allows Elisa to punch in in front of her, Yolanda chastises her, and Zelda responds by claiming she was saving Elisa's spot, leading to a short argument.

The rules specifically say "talk", so does sign language count? If so, Zelda and Elisa talk constantly. And is the creature technically a man because he has a penis? If so, then a lot of the movie is talking about him, or their boss. (Obviously sign language is still talking, just trying to debate, but I find it funny how technically borderline both situations are.
