K said:
Valerie and Candy are both named and speak (and sing!) often, but always about Valerie's relationship with Ted, the three male aliens, or men in general.

Valerie yells at her nosey neighbor Mrs. Merkin, but they do not properly converse.

Lena disagreed with the rating and said:
Theres a scene where Valerie is walking into the hair salon and she's says "Hi Ms. Lana I'm so sorry I missed our appointment. You look great, that's a great outfit." And Ms. Lana replies and says "Thanks dear, that doors a real *****"

I'm not sure if a one sentence exchange counts but it is between 2 named characters and not about a man
