Sandy, the female squirrel, tells the entire Krusty Krab (including many females, such as Mrs. Puff) about her theory of why the Krabby Patty famine has started. Pearl also talks to a group (including females) of people during the credits.

I don't think that Sandy talking to a group that includes Mrs. Puff would count, because Mrs. Puff does not respond, so they aren't talking to each other. And the credits, again, no direct interaction.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but does talking to a crowd count? I thought the "each other" in line two implies it's a conversation.

@Sonia, Bob is a male name. Besides the other characters always refear to Spongebob as he/him. He's clearly a male character.

Also I'd like to add that talking to a crowd where there're females doesn't count as a conversation between females. DUH!

In the first SpongeBob movie, Sandy and Mrs. Puff are seen in the crowd with two lines. "I paid nine dollars for this?" "I paid ten!" Not sure if that counts as a conversation but it was about something other than a guy
