Chuck Lorre had a unique Easter egg hidden at the end of several TV shows. Throughout his career, , which included and

Among his first cue cards ever written included a hilarious message after a episode. The message would typically flash for a second after the end credits. It said, "Thanks for videotaping Dharma & Greg and for freeze framing on my video card."

Lorre feared that the network wouldn't be pleased with these messages and that perhaps he might lose his job over it, but that was not meant to be.

Lorre took an emotional approach following final episode, writing, "The End." For the most part, fans figured that the small writing after the end credits was another disclaimer by the network or studio. However, it was Lorre having some fun and as it turns out, he also took that opportunity to poke fun at others, including none other than Charlie Sheen.

particularly during Sheen's final seasons on the series. It's a shame that the two could not come to terms, at the very least for a final episode. It wasn't meant to be, while Lorre also took a shot at Sheen by having him killed off.

However, it seems like long before that, Lorre wasn't afraid to poke fun at his lead man. In one particular cue card, the showrunner advised viewers not to replicate Sheen's 'unhealthy' acts from the show, claiming that the actor was a trained professional.

The card writes, "Do not attempt to replicate what you saw in tonight's episode of . Despite the seeming lack of serious consequences and regardless of the hilarity that ensued, this is extremely dangerous behaviour that could result in injury or death.

back. However, the reality was different at the start. Once the show wrapped up, given all the controversy and headaches that had taken place over the years.

Lorre revealed, "It is really gratifying that what we made still works on some level. Time has passed and the episodes with Charlie are a joy to watch. There were a couple of years there where I couldn’t watch it. It was too hurtful."

"I can enjoy them all now. You know, he did a brilliant job. And the chemistry between him and Jon [Cryer] and Angus and Holland Taylor and, oh my goodness, Conchata Ferrell, who has passed away. It was a beautiful cast.

As for Charlie Sheen, he regretted the way the situation was handled, admitting he wasn't in the right mind space at the time of his exit.

"And it was desperately juvenile."

Fans were ultimately the ones that suffered the most as Sheen did not return.
