This is a very near thing - Polly and Franky do speak to each other, but it's not a whole conversation,and most of it is at least indirectly about Joe.

AFK disagreed with the rating and said:
I agree with Rhiannon; it's dubious at best. Personally I don't think the two ever have an actual conversation. In the few scenes they're together, Franky will say something to Polly, but her attention will divert back to Joe before Polly can reply. Polly, to my recollection, never says anything directly to Franky; she asks a rhetorical question to the room at large and Franky happens to answer.

In the beginning there is also a scene where the receptionist gives Polly a parcel, but since she isn't named, it doesn't help.
