Do you understand what I'm telling you is a recurring gag in the first season of Charles in Charge. Usually, Stan Pembroke asks this question to Charles.

PilotEdit

Stan: Charles, I'm 35 years old, I'm probably not going to have another little girl. Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Stan: Charles, I'm 35 years old, I'm not your father, but you've been with us how long, three months? I feel I can talk to you. Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Charles: Uh Lila, your father is 35 years old, it's a quarter after nine, and he's probably not going to have any more daughters. Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Stan: The house is empty Jill, there's nobody home. Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Extracurricular ActivityEdit

Stan: Charles, I'm 35 years old, my daughter is thinking of becoming a hood this year, and even though I like to think of myself as a liberal father, I would sleep better knowing she was learning home economics and not how to knock off a gas station. Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Stan: Charles, I love my children, I love 'em. And sometimes they take certain things for granted, like food, and a roof, but that's okay because I work very hard so they can.
Charles: Yes, sir.
Stan: And because I love them, I want them to be happy, and that's where you come in. Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Another Saturday NightEdit

Stan: ...to the point of taking us into his confidence in the next three seconds or someone's gonna start feeling very left out here. Does somebody understand what I'm telling somebody?

WarEdit

Stan: I've worked since I was 16 to be able to afford a family and house like this. Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Charles: Now, we can put away all our weapons and return all our toys to each other right now, or we can go on like this until our mother and father get home, and all of our little behinds will be grass. Do you understand what I'm telling you?

DisciplineEdit

Stan: Whatever the problem, Charles will take care of it. Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Trick or TreatEdit

Charles: And this only happens one time a year. Understand what I'm telling you?

A Date With EnidEdit

Stan: Oh, and also, could you empty the fireplace, since a lot of the ash in it is a memento of you and Gwendolyn sitting by it? Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Friends and LoversEdit

Stan: Charles, I know I'm not your father, and this may be outta line, but um... home before the sun comes up, do you understand what I'm telling you?

Home For The HolidaysEdit

Grandma Irene: See, all year long I look forward to these three weeks, so, while I am very happy to have made your acquaintance, I must tell you, I'm just as happy that you're going home for the holidays, because I would just hate to have to compete with you for their time. See, while I'm here, I want it all for myself, you understand what I'm telling you?

Grandma Irene: Stanley, I'm going into the kitchen now and making two cups of coffee. One of them is not for me. Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Grandma Irene: I just have to tell you that I cannot comprehend the living arrangement in this house! Do you understand what I'm telling you?

Grandma Irene: All I knew about was raising my family. But Stanley, that's all I needed to know. Until all you children were safely away at college, that office never took top priority. Understand what I'm telling you?

Stan: I've never thought of Charles as competition, and lately I've just begun to think of him as one of the family. Now do you understand what I'm telling you?

Accidental PuppyEdit

Stan: Now, it takes time to mend two little broken hearts properly, do you understand what I'm telling you?
