Hildy Johnson disagreed with the rating and said:
This conversation is in the context of Kay leaving her husband. It is ultimately about a man.

Zoe disagreed with the rating and said:
The only conversations are between the husband and wife, about their relationship. There is no other named female character, who talks to the main female character (the wife)

Kay and Eileen (Kay's co-worker, who is named by Arnold during one of the therapy sessions--it's small but it counts) talk about who will watch over Eileen's cat when she's gone. Eileen even complains about who she has lined up to do her--a girl she thinks is stupid.
