“The luck is gone, the brain is shot, but the liquor we still got”

"The luck is gone, the brain is shot, but the liquor we still got” was said by the actor Bryan Brown in the movie Cocktail (1988). “The money’s gone, the brain is shot, but the liquor we still got” apparently was also in the film, although the “luck” version has been more popular.
