About CharlieEdit

Charlie usually likes his business and is content with his customers, especially the Jeffersons and the Willises. A recurring joke had been that either Lionel or someone else would be having a drink with George Jefferson at Charlie's bar, then to see Charlie giving them the bill either because George snuck out or he told Charlie that the drinks will be on Lionel. Once, he was supposed to be evicted because of his contract's expiration, and George would use his bar as an expansion to his cleaner store. But George, realizing Charlie is rather like one of the family, refused and let Charlie stay.

In a later episode, titled "A Secret in the Back Room" (Season 11, episode #17) it is revealed that Charlie, while running a successful bar, has struggled for years with a drinking problem, and is seperated from his wife because of it; George and Louise heip him to come to grips with the problem while preparing for their marriage anniversary party.
