Professor McGonnagall and Madame Rosmerta discuss the crimes of Sirius Black, which is the only time two named female characters speak together in the movie.

Trelawney is named, "Hello. I am Professor Trelawney. Together, we shall cast ourselves into the future."

Later when Hermione disagrees with a reading (which albiet is of Harry, she responds TO Hermione) "My dear, from the moment you first arrived in my class, I sensed that you did not possess the proper spirit for the noble art of Divination. You may be young in years, but the heart that beats beneath your bosom is as shriveled as an old maid's, your soul as dry as the pages of the books to which you so desperately cleave.

Hermione, suprisingly, does not respond, but this segweys into Lavendar's reponse:

LAVENDER: 'In late spring, one of our number will leave us forever!' You knew, Professor! You saw.

Then we have a response from Trelawney (which also names Lavendar)

PROFESSOR TRELAWNEY: On these occasions, I take no joy in my gift, Miss Brown.

HERMIONE: Oh. Do you mind me trying?

PROF TRELAWNEY: Ah!

HERMIONE: The Grim. Possibly.

PROF TRELAWNEY: My dear, from the moment you first arrived in my class, I sensed that you did not possess the proper spirit for the noble art of Divination. You may be young in years, but the heart that beats beneath your bosom is as shriveled as an old maid's, your soul as dry as the pages of the books to which you so desperately cleave.
