The Waitress who Charlie lusts after with unrequited love is his wife in real life. Mary Elizabeth Ellis plays the unnamed waitress and Charlie Day plays Charlie Kelly. They got married in 2008.
When Mac, played by Rob McElhenney, gained 50lbs before Season 7 it wasn't just to "acquire mass." He wanted to make a statement against other sitcoms. He said the idea "came when I was watching a very popular sitcom, and I noticed the people were getting better and better looking as the seasons were going on." In real life, he's married to Sweet Dee, played by Kaitlin Olson.
Flowers for Charlie, released in Season 9, was written by writers for Game of Thrones. It was based on the book Flowers for Algernon. The episode was significantly funnier than the book though, which has a very sad ending.
The original name for the show was Jerks. While this perhaps more aptly describes the characters, we think It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia strikes the right amount of sarcasm for the show.
The RCG, formerly RCH, production company seen at the end of episodes stands for Rob, Charlie, and Glenn, the producers who play Mac, Charlie, and Dennis. The message played during the credits means something when played backwards. Each season has a different message.
We don't know about you, but we had to go back and figure out what the credits at the end said backwards. Hopefully you're loving Season 9 as much as we are.
