  • Please do not repost a question which has been closed; it just wastes everybody's time. – StoneyB Dec 5 '15 at 21:20
  • @StoneyB: This is a different question. Why the other one was closed is kind of a mystery. The guy's watching a show and has a problem understanding some of the lines. This site is supposed to help those who wish to learn English, correct? Isn't that what the site's title actually means? What am I missing? – Ricky Dec 5 '15 at 21:27
  • @Ricky: In this particular case, the questions do not appear to be duplicates. But in general, closing (as duplicates, especially, but even for other reasons) is not in opposition to our mission of helping learners in the aggregate. If a question is not in shape for us to answer well, leaving it open does not help anyone (except possibly the original poster), but rather causes harm by spreading confusion and wasting time. If a question has already been answered (or if someone is just reposting the same question to try to get more attention), pointing all attention at that question helps also. – Nathan Tuggy Dec 5 '15 at 21:43
  • @NathanTuggy: Good points, all. However, I still don't understand why the other question was closed (after garnering two answers), nor why anyone should insist on closing this one. What's wrong with it? – Ricky Dec 5 '15 at 21:48

    @Ricky You've seen the movie, so you can answer this. I haven't; so I don't know whether "I got it" means "I did that already" or "I'm handling it fine without help", and I don't know whether "You're getting big" is a middle-aged woman remarking on the maturation of a young man she knew when he was small or a critical peer remarking on Char-Char's increasing obesity. OP's got the context, and I don't think it's unreasonable to ask them to provide it -- which is what Nathan did when the question was first posted. – StoneyB Dec 5 '15 at 22:58

I got it means "I can do it without anyone's help; I have it all under control."

Char-Char is a nickname for Charles (Charley) as well as a term of endearment. (As in Ray-Ray (for Raymond or Rachel), Lulu (for Louise), Jojo (for Joseph or Josephine) or Jay-Jay for Jason).

You're getting big means "You're growing fast, you're almost a grownup, wow."
