“If you can’t be happy, at least you can be drunk”

"If you can’t be happy, at least you can be drunk” is a drinking saying that has been printed on many images. The character of Lorelai Leigh “Rory” Gilmore (played by Alexis Bledel) said on the American comedy-drama television series Gilmore Girls, on the episode “Partings” that first aired on May 9, 2006:

“Come on. Someone get this chap a pint. See if you can’t be happy, at least you can be drunk.”

RORY: Shush, now. None of that talk. Because tomorrow, brilliant things will happen, a new life, a new adventure. You like adventure, don’t you, mate? Well, London is certainly the place for that, and we, frankly, would not be the fine chaps we claim to be if we did not send you off in a proper way, [Raises her voice] with the bash of a lifetime! [cheering from the party goers] Come on. Someone get this chap a pint. See if you can’t be happy, at least you can be drunk.
