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. The messages are recorded by the executive producers (Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and Glenn Howerton) and are played backwards.

- 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".
- Probably, the abbreviation RCG stands for "Rob, Charlie, Glenn".
- At the end of the 1st Season finale, the message had an echo.
- The use of the word "brown" in most of the messages is probably a reference to poop. And this show is definitely really, really brown.
- "Clown baby" - it's a nickname, which is was made up by Dennis for Charlie (as the Paddy's 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.
