Bartender - Your new liver can handle all that, Frank?
Frank - I'm celebrating, God damn it. I love the weight of this in my hand.
Bartender - Oh, yeah? What's the occasion?

What does Frank mean? Thank you.

    We could guess but some additional background would help, JuriTerreni.

    Is Frank holding a drink in his hand?
    Has he had a liver transplant or is it some sort of joke?

    Yes, he's holding a drink. And yes, he has had a liver transplant before.

    He seems to be saying he loves the feeling of having a drink in his hand (and perhaps, humorously, that he likes the fact that it's a large drink, and therefore heavier, if only marginally, than a regular one).

    Thank you, I see:)

    Somebody who has had a liver transplant would be a fool to drink alcohol (see George Best). I agree that he is rejoicing in holding a full glass of booze in his hand.
