DJ Greg said:
Karen and Maggie have 3 conversations with each other before the latter gets killed off.

1. Maggie informs Karen that she can buy Good Guy doll in back alley behind their work. Scene last about 15 seconds and Maggie mention a homeless guy who is selling the doll.
2. When Karen has to stay longer in work, Maggie offers that she'll look after her son, Andy.
3. While Maggie is babysitting, Karen call and ask her about Andy. Karen note that her friend sound scared. Maggie admit that she doesn't like being alone and they talk briefly about that.

Despite Karen calling Maggie her best friend, they barely interact. Only two short conversations grant the movie a pass (first one dubiously and third one partially). After Maggie's death 20 minutes in, Karen doesn't talk to any other female character.
