Easy pass because CJ has numerous conversations throughout the film with her mother Gloria, usually arguments about how CJ is being raised.

I can't remember exactly but I think Gloria also speaks with her mother-in-law Hannah about her career and raising CJ, although I believe that Ethan is there too and that they talk about Gloria's husband Henry.

In the novel the woman who trains dogs to signal cancer is named Andi and that's her name in the film credits but I don't recall if she's named in her scenes. She speaks to CJ about the job.

CJ speaks to the women who give her Molly and Max about the dogs, though I can't remember if they are named in their scenes.
