I was wondering about a scene in The World's End. Why did Andy drink those shots in the “Cross Hands” Pub since he's supposed to be teetotal?

I have my theories but feel free to post your own.

  1. He feels pressured by the fact that the others want him to drive.
  2. He's craving for alcohol ;) (come on 16 years!?)
  3. He prefers Steven's plan
  4. He secretly likes a waitress in "The Good Companion"
  5. Just because the plot needs him to...
  6. Let's BooBoo
  • "He prefers Steven's plan" By 'Steven' DYM 'Gary' (the instigator of the pub crawl)? I think it was a combination of 1 and 2, as well as caving into the pressure of following Gary and his plan.. Feb 7, 2015 at 14:01

    Is there a particular reason why you changed the title back to the unexplanative version or was this just a site caching problem?

  • @NapoleonWilson Huh.. I just realized while looking at the edit history, that I made a totally unintended edit to the first paragraph! Thanks for correcting that. (And I agree your title was much better..) Feb 7, 2015 at 14:09
  • I hadn't considered a combination of 2 reasons, that's a good point :)

    By the way, what does DYM mean ? (English is not my first language)

It's been a bit since I've seen the movie, but I don't recall Andy drinking anything until after the aliens/robots/what have you showed up. So, I think was a "welp, there's something weird going down, might as well have a drink... or 6"
