Thomas Howard decline to toash a drink at dining table:

Thomas Wake: It's bad luck to leave a toast unfinished, lad.
Thomas Howard: Oh, meanin'... meanin' no disrespect.
Thomas Wake: Man what don't drink best have his reasons.

What does it mean, "what don't drink"?

    In case you haven't got it, Jeff, the whole thing means: A man who doesn't drink needs to have a good reason for not drinking.
