She's quite upset when her husband takes away the brandy, and then later deliberately drops a candle in the basement so Albert won't see her steal another bottle of brandy. When Helen needs help at the climax, as she is being hunted by a SerialKiller, Mrs. Oates is passed out drunk in the kitchen and Helen can't rouse her.[[/folder]]

* ''The Ladies of the Corridor'' by Creator/DorothyParker and Arnaud d'Usseau has Mildred Tynan, who started drinking heavily when she found out her husband was cheating on her. Now a divorcée somewhere in her mid-thirties, she's rarely seen in a good mood without a bottle of whisky. In her highest drunken spirits, she tends to sing "Anchors Aweigh" off-key and loud enough to disturb the neighbors. She has a long MirrorMonologue in which she talks to her image about how "we used to look nice and we used to be nice."

* ''State of the Union'' has the Sazerac-swilling Mrs. Alexander. It's specified in the DrinkOrder that, except for her, nobody is supposed to have too much to drink, but HilarityEnsues when Mary decides to have some of what she's having. She's more convivial than most examples of this, however.

The Lady Drunk is that [[AlwaysFemale female]] StockCharacter who's an [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic]], older woman (in her 40s to her 60s or so) and usually has either a bitter, misanthropic personality or is the all-too-grown-up version of the HardDrinkingPartyGirl. (In the latter case, she is quite likely to turn into a ChristmasCake as well.) Likely having started out as an upper-crust GrandeDame, she tends to drink from a martini glass and may be used as a stock member of a BigScrewedUpFamily. In her day, she was probably [[IWasQuiteALooker quite attractive]] and rather promiscuous.

-->'''Jayna''': [[BlatantLies Well, not much.]] I mean, I'll have a glass and a half of wine at lunch. Then, nothing like an ice cold zima when the sun's setting. Zinfandel spritzers while I'm cooking dinner for the girls. Red, not white. Several gin and tonics with my evening meal, which take me straight into dessert and some ''delicious'' cherry wine. Then I'll curl up with the latest issue of ''O'' Magazine and half a bottle of scotch. [[CloudCuckooLander Then, a quick shot of whiskey before bed so my dreams are peculiar and nice.]] [[SerialEscalation Come morning, I can hardly get out of bed without a spicy Bloody MaryŚCan you blame me, señor, I like the bite, cha cha!]] [[OverlyLongGag Then a couple of wine coolers, two, three, in the mid-morning for energy, zappo!]] [[LongList And what do you know]] [[BookEnds we're back at lunch, and it means wine time in my book.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'''s oni characters both qualify, true to their mythological sources. Suika Ibuki is a PintsizedPowerhouse physically, but is [[Really700YearsOld much older than she looks]] and can be harshly critical of others. She own a magical sake gourd which never runs out of booze, and thus has never been seen sober. Yuugi Hoshiguma is a StatuesqueStunner who looks and acts more lady-like but has a similar love of drink. Her treasured artifact is a sake dish that improves the quality of any liquor poured into it; like Suika she [[ExcuseMeWhileIMultiTask carries this into battle with the protagonist]], and [[MemeticMutation famously]] doesn't spill one drop.
