Early on, Phoebe and her mom talk about Phoebe’s re-wiring of the apartment for her experiments.

Phoebe and Callie have several typical parent / child conversations - about school, bedtime, etc. They also talk to each other about whether they're ok after various dramatic incidents.

Callie and Janine talk about the house.

Phoebe and Gozer talk about sacrifice. Gozer appears to be female presenting but I'm not sure this one counts.

Wanted to specify the first passing conversation I noticed, taking place just 5 minutes into the film (0:05.27-46):

Mom (Callie): “Phoebe! What are you doing?”

Phoebe: “Neighbor’s electricity is running out of phase. I tied in, bumped us up to 220.”

Mom: “Turn that off please.”

Phoebe: “Now I can run my lathe.”

Mom: “And you didn’t think to ask me?”

Phoebe: “I mean you just demonstrate zero aptitude for science.”

Mom: “Got it.”

Phoebe: “You’re better at other things. Like quesadillas.”

Mom: “My hair dryer.”

Phoebe: “Your quesadillas are excellent.”

Mom: “Thank you.”
