In this one there's an exchange of dialogue (not really a fully developed conversation) between the main character, Nicole (Claudette Colbert), and the matriarch of the family, Aunt Hedwige (Elizabeth Patterson). It's done in the presence of two men and is about one of them. And as she's talking to her aunt about this guy, she's often addressing him too, so it's not even a one-on-one exchange.

There's also another brief conversation between Nicole and an unnamed nurse, but it's also about a man (one of the male patients Nicole wants to see).
