Take The Point Meaning

(idiomatic) To grasp the essential meaning of what a person is saying, to understand a person's argument and point of view.

Example: 1914, P. G. Wodehouse, "Deep Waters" in The Man Upstairs and Other Stories:
  "Then," said Mr Mifflin, cordially, "say no more. I take your point. My objections are removed."
2002, Richard D. Leppert, "Commentary: Music and Mass Culture," in Essays on Music, ISBN 9780520231597, p. 345:
  Wading through the apparent sarcasm, we can take his point that the "badness" common to popular music as a whole is not excused by the small amount of it that is notably good.
1900, Henry James, "Mrs. Medwin":
  I take your point well enough, but mayn't you be after all quite wrong?
1909, H. G. Wells, Tono-Bungay, ch. 5:
  "I played 'em off one against the other," said my uncle. I took his point in an instant. He had gone to each of them in turn and said the others had come in.
