'Scandal' drinking game: Plan your premiere party rightAdd to Favorites | Scandal
So, if you're an adult of legal drinking age, stock your fridge and get ready to get your Gladiator on. (And, as always, please drink responsibly.)
* Every time Olivia drinks, raise your glass to the TV in a toast
*When Harrison ( Columbus Short) makes a speech about loyalty, the last person to put their hand on their heart takes a shot
*Take a shot when someone says "Gladiator."
*If (okay, when) Cyrus ( Jeff Perry) has a meltdown, take a drink
*One sip if Mellie ( Bellamy Young) enters a scene with her hair up, two if her hair is down
*Take a drink when Olivia and Fitz's love theme music plays
*Take a drink when Fitz acts like the worst president in history
*If a camera shot happens through a window or half-open door, look at the screen through your glass and then take a drink
*During the inevitable '70s funk-soundtracked montage, pass the bottle around the group, hot potato-style -- Whoever's holding at the end takes a shot
*The first person to correctly ID the other Shonda Rimes project a guest star/new character was a part of chooses someone else to take a shot
*When someone declares, "It's handled," chug what's left in your cup
Oh, and because something has to soak up all this booze, whenever Olivia eats popcorn, everyone eats a handful themselves.
"Scandal" returns for Season 3 on Thursday (Oct. 3) at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
