None of our 15 choices captures my relationship with alcohol. I have no problem with people drinking alcohol in moderation and with a designated driver. I fall asleep from drinking a small amount of alcohol. I do not understand the attraction of drinking something that makes you feel numb.

Find one that reflects that view and I'll add it.

Drink the first. Sip the second slowly. Skip the third.
~Knute Rockne

Too bad this isn't a movie quote.

This is the closest one I've found so far:

http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0020059/quotes
Abby Sciuto: [drunk] I don't know why people drink alcohol when they're depressed, because alcohol is a depressant. Now I'm still 'pressed... and I'm nauseous.

If I find a better one, I will post it in this thread.

FYC:

"It is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels." - Elizabeth Swann, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
She talks about rum in this case, but I guess it could apply to any alcoholic beverage.

I suggested this circa 2010-2011 after watching Barfly, it didn't make it as a poll but I can remember the 4 or 5 quotes I put immediately on the list (you have the Homer's one already):

THE LOST WEEKEND: One drink's too many, and a hundred's not enough.
THE AFRICAN QUEEN: A man takes a drop too much once in a while, it's only human nature. 
BARFLY: Anybody can be a non-drunk. It takes a special talent to be a drunk. It takes endurance. Endurance is more important than truth. 
DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES: The world looks so dirty to me when I'm not drinking.

Thanks ElMo, can you please tell me who was saying the quote to who?

In the same order:
BARTENDER NAT (Howard Da Silva) to Don Birnam (Ray Milland)
CHARLIE ALLNUT (Humphrey Bogart) to Rose Sayer (Katharine Hepburn)
HENRY CHINASKI (Mickey Rourke) to Tully (Alice Krige)
KIRSTEN ARNESEN  (Lee Remick) to Joe Clay (Jack Lemmon)

and here's a bonus, I used to say that with my friends many years ago, it's borrowed from Spike Lee's masterpiece 25th Hour:

MONTGOMERY BROGAN
(Edward Norton) to his friends (Philip Seymour Hoffman, Barry Pepper, Rosario Dawson, Anna Paquin)

"Champagne for my real friends and real pain for my sham friends"

No problem but how about these for Barfly?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092618/mediaviewer/rm2257411840
since the quote is delivered by Rourke, i guess it'd be more relevant to have him on the pic

Until a more moderate quote comes along, I guess this one will get my vote:

"Don't be such a square. Everybody who's anybody drinks." - Lorraine Baines, Back to the Future
