Quote #10

"Don’t get drunk, Jake," she said. "You don’t have to."

"How do you know?"

"Don’t," she said. "You’ll be all right."

"I’m not getting drunk," I said. "I’m just drinking a little wine. I like to drink wine."

"Don’t get drunk," she said. "Jake, don’t get drunk." (19.58)

For the only time, Brett actually begs Jake to stay sober; she doesn’t want to drink herself, and needs him to stay with her in her state of honesty and unhappiness.
