Charlie talks to her mom about why the house was destroyed and promises her she will explain later.

Charlie and Sally (Charlie's mom) talk multiple times about Charlie's presents, throwing away her diving trophies, and Sally borrowing the VW (Bee) to take the dog to the vet.

In addition to the conversations Marc mentions, Charlie talks with the teens who bully her (Tina being the main one). They mock her for dropping her tray, and later for being too scared to dive.

The move passes 3 out of 3. As pointed out, there are several instances where named women speak to each other. Charlie speaks with her mom several times about topics unrelated to men. Charlie speaks with other named teens who mock her. I don't know why this is still listed as a 1.
