Charlie was a geeky student who had a crush on Annie Wilson. When he found out she didn't have a date for the prom, he asked Annie. She accepted, though she did so just to be nice. Charlie thought it was a real date, but when Annie told him that she wasn't romantically interested in him, he left her at the prom. A friend of his later threw a drink in Annie's face at the after-prom party and stated that it was for Charlie.
