Katie is in contact with Kate three times during the film.

(1) Katie leaves a voicemail asking for help with a birthday party she is throwing for her children (Kate's grandchildren) the following weekend.

(2) Kate calls Katie back to discuss the party and also asks for her brother's (Brent) garage code since she forgot. Katie is suspicious of Kate's motive to drive 600 miles to Brent's.

(3) Kate calls Katie from Las Vegas, NV to tell her she was driving towards the west coast before her car broke down on the road. Initially, Katie is irritated that her mother fed her a white lie almost a week ago. As the conversation continues, however, Katie's tone changes when we realized Kate is struggling with a bigger issue. Their relationship. Kate looks for the reinsurance that she was the best mother she could be. Katie, with her walls down, responds warmly.
