Martin, fed up with the whole shark problem, starts filling his ''pint'' with the wine despite Hooper's protests that he should let it breathe. (Note that Brody's glass still has some whiskey and ice in the bottom when he fills it. [[{{Squick}} Imagine what that must taste like.]]) Then, he gives Ellen and Hooper the smallest amount imaginable.
