This versatile bit of business turns up in both comedy and drama and, depending on context, can say any number of things about a character. It may be used to portray him as [[TheAlcoholic pathetically dependent]]; or, conversely, to establish him as a low-grade BadAss, ImmuneToDrugs; or, if it's not habitual, to emphasize that he's under [[INeedAFreakingDrink unusual stress]]. Or the focus may be on the other characters' lack of reaction: they know this guy so well, they're used to it.

* One of the passengers -a cook- in ''{{Titanic}}'' as it goes down does this as he and the protagonists hang on for dear life on the upturned bow of the ship. Considering his position, it'd probably be his last chance to do so. As it happens, this cook was a real man, Charles Joughin, who did survive the sinking, despite being in the freezing water for two hours or so. Some have suggested that the alcohol he drank kept him alive, but this claim is in doubt (given that one effect of alcohol consumption is an ''increased'' risk of hypothermia).

* Whenever Hawkeye Pierce of ''Series/{{Mash}}'' isn't up to his elbows in somebody's gut (or using both hands to carry out this episode's ZanyScheme), there's a fifty percent chance that he's carrying around a Martini Glass.

* In the second season of ''DarkerThanBlack'', perhaps because she's become freelance, [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl April]] has replaced her former can of beer with a more quickly accessible drink from a hip flask. Hei also is shown drinking from a hip flask, although in his case, it seems to indicate that he's become an alcoholic, another manifestation, along with WildHair and PermaStubble that he's gone through a lot since the TimeSkip.
