RCG (since 04x03)

In the end credits of every episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia the credits for the production company RCG (formerly RCH) include a hidden audio message.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Rob, Charlie and Glenn.jpg

  • On a white background, we see three men (Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton) wearing hoods, jackets and sunglasses. According to Glenn, "RCH never stood for Rob Charlie Howerton". Here is his Tweet from August 13, 2011: "I'll give you guys a hint: RCH is an acronym for a very small unit of measurement. Most carpenters will know the answer". This article says that "a red cunt hair (also RCH, red pussy hair, and red one) is a figure of speech used to represent infinitesimal length".
  • The abbreviation RCG probably stands for "Rob, Charlie, Glenn".
  • The use of the word "brown" in most of the messages is possibly a reference to Philly band Ween who have made the word their own, meaning bodacious.
  • "Clown baby" - is a nickname created by Dennis for Charlie (as an underground street fighter). ("Hundred Dollar Baby")
  • "The Eagle's born out of thunder" is a line from the "Birds of War" song in Season 5's The Gang Wrestles for the Troops.
  • "They got chicken in Philly" is a quote from the first episode of season 10; The Gang Beats Boggs.
  • RCG produced an episode of On the Record with Mick Rock, which also had a secret message: "Look, this is a totally different show!"
