Passes 2/3

The only woman who got a lot of attention was Mary Austin. But she did speak about Freddy to his mother and sister, (Kashmira Bulsara and Jer Bulsara) near the beginning of the film at Freddy's Birthday Party. Kashmira is named in the film.

C.A. disagreed with the rating and said:
As Freddie is proposing the band comes in and there's a woman with them. She corrects them about her name then asks Mary where the bathroom is.
They are now both named and talking to each other about the bathroom.
This is the only time it passes, the dinner table conversation was about Freddie.

svaria disagreed with the rating and said:
Actually, it just barely passes. There is one brief scene where Mary and Freddy are together in their home and the band barges in, with a woman as well. One of the members of the band incorrectly introduces the woman to Freddy & Mary, and she corrects him that her name is Cheryl. Cheryl then asks Mary where the bathroom is and Mary gives her directions.
