Charlie and Dennis get high in the back workplace, and Charlie begins dancing –AKA making flailing hand gestures – to a psychedelic observe. It’s no surprise that Day convincingly portrays Charlie as being high out of his thoughts, however it’s the weirdness of the “dance moves” that actually make it particular. It’s the sort of scene that you simply mimic to your folks who marvel what the hell you’re doing. Day’s moves are so outlandish, but portrayed with an nearly boastful coolness, that Charlie appears genuinely happy with the performance he is placing on for Dennis.

Charlie’s difficulty at reading and writing, generally poor communication skills, and poor grasp of grammar and syntax lead to constant berating by the the rest of the Gang. Described as having a “tenuous grasp of the English language generally”, he is depicted as just about unable to learn or write, and keeps a personal journal consisting predominantly of childlike photos instead of precise sentences.

Charlie is an simply excitable one that is susceptible to emotional outbursts and is commonly confused and flabbergasted by modern-day life.

He notably displays this when he seduces and manipulates a beautiful and wealthy girl named Ruby before insulting, rejecting, and humiliating her in front of a packed mansion of guests, merely because the Waitress finally acknowledged his presence in her life. He has also orchestrated elaborate schemes when given authority within the bar by Frank in “Mac Bangs Dennis’s Mom”, where he efficiently convinces Dennis to humiliate himself sexually and get in a fight with Mac, and persuades Dee to give him favors and help in seducing the Waitress.

Though his general intelligence, logic and grip on reality appear to be sorely deficient, Charlie is definitely one of the socially expert and aware members of the gang, though this is not saying much. He incessantly shows a higher consciousness of, and concern for, social taboos, such as what is racist or anti-Semitic, than different members of the gang, particularly Mac and Dee.

They start seeing the siblings, leading Dee to have a very one-sided romance with the brother and Charlie to have a surprisingly intimate relationship with the sister, played by Alexandra Daddario. This leads Mac and Dennis to rearrange a blind date for Charlie via preparing an internet, dating profile that is the furthest thing from descriptive of Charlie. However, no amount of tricks or make-up can cover what Charlie actually is inside, and Charlie takes the date off what few wheels it was already on. Charlie’s troubled history with The Waitress is a well-documented one, particularly in The Waitress’ restraining orders.

Charlie tries to persuade Frank to take a paternity test, but Frank adamantly refuses. Later, when his mother informs Charlie that he survived an abortion, she tells him that Frank is his father and pushed her to get the abortion, though Frank insists that Bonnie was known for being a “large whore” and subsequently maintains that he’s not Charlie’s father.
