It's sad, but it appears that three women, who are SUPPOSED to be friends, only speak amongst the two men!

Captain A disagreed with the rating and said:
Shelly and Linda play and talk through a game where Linda guesses the card Shelly holds. During this Linda also speaks to Ash, but very briefly, and the conversation is not ABOUT Ash. Right after, Cheryl speaks to the both of them. Again, not about Ash.

Seconding Captain A's comment above - Shelly and Linda play a guessing game, during which they talk to each other (albeit briefly) about what the cards are. I wouldn't call it a "conversation", but it does technically pass the test.
