Chuck Lorre Productions is known for their unique s displayed at the end of their television shows. The vanity card for each episode of The Big Bang Theory is displayed after the credits roll, and right before the final logo. The vanity card has shown up in every single episode.
Each vanity card is numbered and shows a brief note, sometimes with a photo, under the company name, and contains a random and often humorous insight from Chuck Lorre. The text appears on the screen only briefly, and can only be read if one has the episode on a recorded medium and pauses on the frame of the vanity card.
Some notes say that they have been censored, but "As always, you know where to look." All notes, both censored and uncensored, are published on Chuck Lorre Productions's website. The vanity cards are displayed by their numbers on the left-side column and a censored vanity card has "(c)" following the card number.
The first vanity card appeared at the end of the first "Dharma & Greg" episode in 1997.
