Arthur's neighbor Sophie briefly interacts with her daughter GiGi about how their bad their building is. This is technically a pass, but it is dubious for various reasons:
- Sophie is more trying to shut her daughter up than actually talk to her; the focus of her interaction is rather on Arthur.
- We don't even know their names from the movie itself, only the credits;
- This is one of those cases where the entirety of the movie passing hangs on basically one line.
