There are several named women in the film, most notably police detective Teresa
and Sean's mom Mary. Only one scene passes the test - Mary thanks her friend Lizzy for inviting her and Sean to a private concert at her home. Even this is questionable, since the concert was a treat for Sean and Mary thanks Lizzy for having them both over. The two women then go on to talk about Sean's black eye and how he acquired it. I think that technically it passes, though I'd hard pressed to argue the point if any disagrees.

This is the only scene in which any of the women talk to one another.
