"In his cups" nghĩa là gì?

"In one's cups" -> say tí bỉ.

Ví dụ
Most of them were well gone in their cups and offered no objection (phản đối) when Cranston knocked at the door and demanded (yêu cầu) entrance.

By this point I was drunk, and I felt it was a good idea to say, “Move along, already” or something along those lines. I may have been in my cups, but I clearly remember that the father kept right on talking, and I did not notice a reaction from anyone at the wedding party.

And every weekend, this man appeared in an impeccable (không tỳ vết) white linen suit, red silk scarf knotted at his throat, a carved wooden cane, silver-white hair, leathery weather-beaten (sạm nắng) skin. As the evening progressed (tiến tới), he'd be more and more in his cups - and he'd ballroom dance. Alone. A few weeks in, he came up to me, introduced himself as Indian Boy - and asked me if I could write a song that could bring his runaway (bỏ trốn) daughter home.
