disagree  Zeki Güler: If we adopt your own mindset, grow does not mean "benimsemek". Contradicting yourself.

  -> I think the issue has more to do with semantics than mindset. "Something growing on someone" does indeed mean "birinin bir şeyi benimsemesi". In this context "you got it" is further confusing as it could refer to anything other than the job (a joke etc).

disagree  Taner Tanrıöver: "literally" doesn't mean "adeta" nor does "get it" mean "benimsemek". "You literally got it" would translate back "işi tam anlamıyla kaptın/çaktın" IMHO

  -> House does not mean "Saray". Then why do we translate it this way for White House ? Do not translate word by word, grasp the real meaning behind clutter of words...
