This romantic melodrama contains a lot of scenes where characters talk about the opposite sex, but there are many scenes where female characters talk about something else as well. For example, the first scene has the female protagonist (Cary) talk with another woman (Sara) about many things, including Cary's late husband. Later, there is a brief scene where Cary talks about her weekend (without mentioning a man) with a woman (Mona Plash). There is also a later scene where Cary talks with Sara about an important decision Cary has made, without mentioning men.
