That's true, Guy. They went a little far with that, especially to me, showing up late for the landing party. He drank, but he was as responsible as they come.
Eh being he guzzled that whole bottle of whiskey minus the drink or two Picard had, I'd say it's amazing he showed up at all the next morning.
I didn't think it was disrespectful. The guy realized his whole life had lost meaning and in self-pity got drunk. Not classy but understandable.
