I was a bit too young to watch “Felicity” during its original airing on the WB, but through the beauty that is Netflix, I stumbled across this late 90s gem recently. While watching, I couldn’t help but think, “Wow, this happens ALL the time. This would be perfect for a drinking game.” Out of curiosity, I did a quick search, but I didn’t find any that I really liked… so I created my own. Try it if you dare, but be prepared to get completely sloshed. Enjoy!
Drink every time…
… You’re confused about who lives in what apartment/dorm.
… Someone says, “Can I talk to you for a second?” Or some variation of that…or just any time someone pulls someone else aside.
… Someone uses a pay phone. (Ah, pay phones, remember them?)
… Richard calls women something other than “girls.” Examples include: “mamas,” “fillies,” “chicas,” etc.
… Noel is at a computer (his or working on some else’s).
… Ben struggles to get a few words out. (Be cautious with this one: You may end up drunker than his lab partner, Trevor, at the Halloween party.)
… Someone gets served underage. This gets fuzzy in the fourth season, so make a judgment call.
… Ben calls someone a “dick.”
… Meghan says something condescending.
… Javier mentions Samuel, but we don’t see him.
… Felicity says “Well, the thing is…”
… There’s a monologue.
… Someone comes to their RA (Felicity, Meghan, Noel) and asks them a question.
… You feel second-hand embarrassment/awkwardness from the characters. (Make it a small sip though, please.)
… Felicity talks into a tape recorder.
… Sean has a new invention.
… Something shitty happens to Julie. (“Julie? Who’s Julie?”)
… Drugs are mentioned in reference to Molly. Where did she go anyway?
… Ben says, “I don’t want to talk about this,” and leaves the room. Two drinks if it’s in reference to his dad.
… Meghan walks into the dorm and walks out without saying anything.
… Meghan has some kind of colored hair extensions in.
… Javier tells Felicity that he loves her.
… Someone is drinking coffee.
… Elena and/or Tracy talk about sex (to each other or someone else).
… Julie plays the guitar/sings.
… You see someone from another WB show in a guest role.
… Felicity says, “Oh… OK.”
… Felicity’s hair is mentioned.
… Meghan talks about her box. (This isn’t meant as some kind of sexual allegory, is it?)
… A couple breaks up. Yes, even Meghan and Sean.
