Warning: This Side Quest requires specific choices in Chapter 9, see the requirements listed above and replicate them exactly. If you make different choices you get two alternate quests instead The Price of Thievery, Shears’ Counterattack (click on them for their requirements). These optional quests are also needed for the “Best in the Business” trophy, which you can do after the story in chapter select. Since they cancel out the alternate Chapter 9 quests you can only do one or the other on the 1st playthrough.
Go to Drunkard’s Den and speak to the drunk father
As soon as you exit the clothing store, Johnny will run up to you and excitedly offer to take you to the Drunkard’s Den. Follow him and go inside to talk to the drunk father, who is to the right of the bar slouched on a stool over a table.
Go to the Materia Vendor to find the drunk father’s ‘inspiration’
Head over to the Materia Shop and speak to the Vendor, who is lying down like he wants to be drawn like one of your French girls. He’ll ask you to go and fetch an item from a vending machine at the inn.
Go to the inn and use Assess Materia on vending machine
Go to the inn and use the secret vending machine. The game tells you that you can use your Assess Materia to get secret times, and the higher level it is (i.e. the more enemies you’ve Assessed), the luckier you may be. Up to this point I’d used it on every enemy I could and had a total of 55, and on multiple reloads I got the same items every time.
The first time you use the vending machine, you get Vitalbrew, the second time you get Crimson Spike, then finally The Sauce.
Go back to the Materia Vendor
Return to the Materia Vendor and he’ll take the three items off you and tell you to go to the Restaurant.
Go to the restaurant and give the owner advice
Go to the restaurant and the owner will ask for advice on how best to fix his food. The higher level your Fire, Lightning or Ice Materia is, the better item you’ll get. Choose either the Stove, the Fridge or the Power Supply as the end result is exactly the same (doesn’t matter which dialogue you pick). If your highest Materia Level is 2 (Fira, Blizzara, Thundara) you’ll receive a Remedy. If it is 3 (Firaga, Blizzaga, Thundaga) then you’ll get a Moogle Medal. Either way, you’ll also get a Medicine Voucher which is what you really came here for.
Find the Pharmacist and agree to deliver medicine
After Johnny runs from the restaurant with a sick stomach, you’ll find him just around the corner on the floor with a Pharmacist stood over him. Talk to the Pharmacist and you’ll be taken inside and asked to deliver medicine, with how helpful you’ll be determined by your Cleansing Materia level. If it’s Level 1, you need to find 1 person, Level 2 then 2 people, and Level 3 all 3 people.
Find the sick people and give them medicine
Now you have to find up to 3 sick people around Wall Market. The Pharmacist gives you hints about where to go. You actually only need to find one person to start the next step of the quest, but if you find the others they give you items.
Sick Person Location #1: This unfortunate soul is kneeling over a toilet bowl in the bathroom of the Drunkard’s Den (the bar where you originally spoke to the Clothing Store Owner’s Father).
Pharmacist’s Hint: If I had to guess where a sick person’d end up, I’d say the toilet. Maybe in a shop nearby?
Sick Person Location #2: The second person is keeled over against an alley wall. The clue says he’s behind the gym, but he’s actually behind the clothing shop (where you started this quest). The entrance to the alley is to the north of the shop.
Pharmacist’s Hint: You might find the second customer with the drunks usually passed out behind the gym.
Sick Person Location #3: The third person is hunched over with his hands on his knees in the alley south of the massage parlor (again, not ‘right behind’ – this Pharmacist would be useless as a treasure hunter). Turn to the right at the fork once you enter the alley.
Pharmacist’s Hint: The third wandered down the wrong side street, I’m thinking. There’s a real narrow alley right behind the massage parlor. Only the locals seem to know it’s even there.
Return to the Pharmacist and receive the VIP Card
Go back to the Pharmacist at the Item Shop and he’ll give you the VIP Card to give to the drunk father.
Go back to the drunk father at Drunkard’s Den and give him the VIP Card
Return to the Drunkard’s Den and to the drunk father who is still where he was at the start of this quest. He’ll take the VIP Card and tell you to go back to his son.
Return to the Clothes Shop Owner
Go back to the Clothes Shop Owner and finally this zig-zag of a fetch quest is at an end. He will give you a Turbo Ether and restore your HP and MP.
This finishes The Party Never Stops side quest in Final Fantasy VII Remake. Now the mission A Dynamite Body becomes available.
Important for Best in the Business Trophy: To get this quest you must complete the Johnny Discovery Event in Chapter 9 Wall Market which locks you out of the 2 alternate Side Quests The Price of Thievery, Shears’ Counterattack. After the story you unlock Chapter Select and can get these 2 alternate quests via chapter select without having to replay the entire game. Once you did all 26 side quests you get trophy “Best in the Business”. You can’t get all 26 side quests in a single playthrough.
