Lorenzo carrying drunken Jack, who pissed himself on the Grammy stage:

Lorenzo: I think that's a bad come down.
Ally: Holy shit! Just take him to the shower. Go to the left.

What is the meaning of "bad come down"?
Does it mean Jack had a bad goodbye off of the stage and embarrassed himself?

    A "come down" is the transition period (ending) of a hallucinatory experience ("a trip").

    People takes drugs in order to "trip" (hallucinate in a pleasant way), but as the drug wears off, the "come down" (the return to drugless normality) can be unpleasant. This one was "bad" (very upsetting).
