[Charles finds Douglas at work with a skateboard]
... Doug, do you need help tightening those wheels?
I'm not tightening them; I'm loosening them.
That's very dangerous!
I hope so; this is Jason's skateboard. He used my baseball glove to clean his fish tank! He's gotta be taught a lesson.

I would have to disagree with anybody that says Charles in Charge is a stupid show.It is excellent.It has romance,its funny,and it (in my opinion)is one of Scott Baio's best shows.It was better then most 80's shows out there.It started the career of the shows different actors.Nichole Eggert went on to film Baywatch,and went on to be a beautiful actress.Josie went on to become a very pretty woman.Willie Ames went on to become Bibleman,and the show's first season star,Micheal Pearlmen became a writer.Just because the show didn't have "class" doesn't mean it wasn't funny.I will agree,however,that some of the story lines were a bit stupid at times,but still,this is the 80's we're talking bout here.GIVE THE SHOW A CHANCE!
