Was there a reason (apart from a full bladder of course) that our friend did this?
Probably that he was so drunk that he had lost all sense of decorum

Does it involve the use of the p word? I'm not sure what the P word is but No, I am certain it doesn't

i{If it is any help, the phrase you are looking for is not a risque' one.

Is it relevant that he urinated into the fireplace? Does the phrase talk about the future of their marriage? His character?

Alizon
Was the phrase rather sarcastic? No
angry? In tone only
a proverb? No
a quote? Noish


Arjun
Is it relevant that he urinated into the fireplace? Not so much that he urinated in the fire place but that he did something that caused shock and exclaimation!

Does the phrase talk about the future of their marriage? No
His character? Yesish (but be careful not to be mislead) - explore!

Does it make an extrapolation based on the current incident? Such as 'a man who cannot hold his bladder cannot...'

Did the phrase include the words "You..." or "You are a ..."

An allusion that he was unable to hold something?

Arjun

Such as 'a man who cannot hold his bladder cannot...' No, nothing like this (no matter how appropriate it seems) *

Alizon
Did the phrase include the words "You..." Nou are a ..." No * :)

An allusion that he was unable to hold something?No *

*Finding the phrase is the lateral bit of this puzzle
