DJ Greg said:
Although movie have four main characters, it mostly focuses on female leads, Julie and Helen, who have many conversations with each other, as well as with other female characters.

1. Helen explains to Julie how important it is to take care of your hair.
2. Helen talk shortly with her sister, Elsa, about staying at party.
3. Julie's friend/roommate, Deb, convince her to spend vacation at home.
4. Julie's mom tell her how much she changes over one year. I don't think mother is named in the movie, but it can be assumed, that she's Mrs. James.
5. Julie ask Elsa where she can find Helen.
6. Julie and Helen talk about Helen's failed acting career and a note Julie received.
7. Julie and Helen debate how to ask Missy about her dead brother (they don't mention him). Three of them talk about supposedly broken car.
8. Elsa inform Helen about inventory at their shop.
9. After running away from Fisherman, Helen tell Elsa that she was attacked (she doesn't mention attacker's gender) and order her to lock back door.

And there's still more small chit-chats. This movie passes easily!
