Bryan said:
The closest two female characters come involves Jeanie (Jennifer Grey) asking Grace (the secretary - Edie McClurg) where Mr Rooney is.

Later, Jeanie answers the door thinking it is the police only to find the "Sexogram". Jeanie does not talk to her, and slams the door in her face.

alicia is right - for instance, they have a remonstration in the car after Katie (Jeanie's mother) picks her up from the police station.

Jeanie and Mrs. Bueller speak numerous times, especially on the car ride home at the end about her having to leave work and Jeanie getting arrested, and at the beginning when Nurse Sparrow tells Sloane her grandmother's died.

Although it is few and far between Jeanie and her mother do talk about things other than a male..even other than Ferris!
