Right! Isolated some parts of conversations that didn't pass to see if the isolated bits do pass. Since, after all, all that's required to pass are three lines between women that aren't about a man. And yet, quite a few episodes have failed...

The Shakespeare Code

DOOMFINGER: But it must be tomorrow!
BLOODTIDE: Love's Labour’s Won must be performed.
(Lilith changes the hair in the doll.)
LILITH: Fear not. Chant with me. Water damps the fiercest flame.


Two lines about the play, then: the beginning of a spell. To kill a dude. (admittedly, an unimportant-to-the-story dude, but still.) Does the action of Lilith changing the hair in the doll signify that the conversation/the spell is about a man now? Well, this is the deciding factor for the whole episode, so...

And now! one from the Moffat Era:

Cold Blood

ALAYA: Why would I tell you?
AMBROSE: Because if you don't, I'm going to have to use this on you.
(Ambrose has kept a taser from her collection of weapons.)
ALAYA: Now you reveal yourselves.


The thing Alaya won't tell is anything about a cure for Ambrose's father. But although Ambrose is motivated in this scene by saving the male members of her family, this three lines also reveal something vital about her: that she's willing to torture to get what she needs. So! Does it pass or not? What do you think?
