I've fallen on a few with CAER

The verb caer means to fall. But caer en means to understand, in the sense of to come to understand / to hit upon ; caer bajo means to plunge in the sense of to sink very low; caer bien/mal means to go down well/poorly; estar al caer means about to arrive and caerse bien/mal means to like/not like someone.

And they say phrasal verbs don't exist in Spanish.
