Andrea said:
Norah and Emily have multiple instances of dialogue which do not involve a man. First they meet and introduce each other. Then, at one point, they have to walk through a corridor full of sleeping underwater monsters, and they encourage and instruct each other throughout. Finally, they have an extensive exchange about who should get in the last escape capsule; while a man (Emily's boyfriend) is mentioned at one point in that conversation, the conversation on the whole is not about a man.
