There are two named female characters, the sisters Eve and Ava.
Most conversations they have happen together with Adam, Eves lover. There are some lines though when Eve and Ava address each other directly a few times, like: "I am so happy to see you" or "How are you?" or "go downstairs, we will come in a minute and all have breakfast together".
I don't remember exactly, if they get an answer, so it's a bit unclear if that counts as conversation.
So I guess, technically it passes the test, though dubious because it's not really a conversation or really a topic they talk about.

They talk about manners (it's rude to come into someone else's home without asking, are you still afraid of garlic), the campy French Dracula music video, going out, travel, blood, and while Adam is present he doesn't participate much and the conversation would be complete without him.
