Erin disagreed with the rating and said:
While most of the conversations throughout the film are about Elwood or Harvey, there is a small snippet in the luncheon scene between Vite and Mrs. Chauvenet (who is both named in the script and credited by name on IMdB):

MRS. CHAUVENET - Well, I - I think I'll be running along.

VETA - With no tea?


VETA - Or punch?

MRS. CHAUVENET - No, no thank you, really. I - I'll be going. Good-bye. Good-bye.

While it's superficial and both characters are clearing *thinking* of Elwood and how he's crazy, there is no mention of a man.

Missy LB disagreed with the rating and said:
I agree with Erin, this should be 3 out of 3. There are exchanges between named women, not about men.
