Catherine said:
I think the longest and clearest example is between Lucy Gray and the little girl at the zoo (her brother calls her Venus by name).

Venus: Where'd you find that snake?

Lucy Gray: Oh, he found me. Must've been a music lover, my singing calmed him right down.

Venus: Can I touch your dress?

Lucy Gray: Of course! I like your dress too.

There's also this quick exchange between Lucy Gray and Maude Ivory in the meadow.

Lucy Gray: Maude Ivory can you grab my guitar?

Maude Ivory: Yeah

Lucy Gray: Thanks

Most of the other scenes I can find are either one-liners from one woman to another. (Coral to Lucy Gray in the arena- "It's not fair..."), or involve both men and women & are a little more dubious (the whole snake scene with Clemensia, Dr. Gaul, and Snow).
