Ah well, at least she'll suffer from a big hangover in the morning!

Aaand THAT'S one of the biggest selling points of personal biotech -- "we've got an app for that!"
(hangover cure, that is...)
The other being more sophisticated versions of Larry Niven's 'droud' (a wire to directly stimulate the pleasure center of the brain -- a.k.a. 'wire head'; c.f. stories Death by Ecstacy, The Meddler.). Just like porn has proven to be one of the biggest drivers of the Internet.

If we hadn't been privy to Chaz's inner thoughts, I'd suspect he knew she could tell which drink was spiked, and that by fumbling a cheap gag he'd get her to miss that the real damage was the alcohol content of the drinks; a variant of the iocaine maneuver, if you will.

She would have felt worse afterwards with both a hangover and the after effects of a laxative.

But, she's doing enough damage to herself that she doesn't need much help from Chaz.
