Chuck or "Chuckie", is one of Dan Conner's poker playing buddies who also worked with him for a time at his garage. He is married to Anne-Marie, a long time friend of Roseanne and Jackie. Usually, when Chuck, Dan and the guys get together, the conversation is uaually very light, talking about beer, babes, and at time complaing about the wives when they play poker together. But, the tone turns to the issue of race, when D.J. refuses to kiss a black classmate for a play at his school in the episode "White Men Can't Kiss" in Season 7.
Dan is forced to confront the issue, and examine his own views on race, after he asks Chuck for his opinion on the subject. Chuck, in questioning Dan's asking, answers, "Why did you ask me, because I was Black?", when Dan, embarrased, sheepishly repsponds, "Well, uh Yes..." Chuck then responds "So, if I say it's OK, all other Black people must think it's OK?!" After this Dan confronts D.J., who then agrees to kiss the girl in the play.
