Studio 25 on the Warner Bros lot in Burbank is steeped in Hollywood history — Casablanca, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Bonnie & Clyde, and Blade Runner all filmed within its walls — but on Tuesday the hallowed soundstage added a one-of-a-kind fadeout to that long legacy. The Big Bang Theory cast, crew, and creative team recorded the final scenes of their 279th episode, a one-hour affair that airs May 16 and marks the end of the show’s massively successful 12-year run.

It was a crisp and buoyant taping that, for the better part of three hours, was business-as-usual for the team that has been a ratings machine year in and year out. There were little signs, though, that emotions and tears might break loose at any point. Jim Parsons, who portrays Sheldon, did a vamping dance in-between takes but then a moment later he was scanning the front row of the audience to check on his special guest, his mother.

Series co-creator Chuck Lorre, looking misty-eyed, stepped on stage to hold the clapperboard for the final take on the final scene. Johnny Galecki was polished in his performance until he got to one toss-off line of dialogue about spending “139 1/2 surprisingly pleasant hours” with Sherman’s character — the joke was a minor note in the show but the numeric reference was chosen for a reason. It’s the collective screen time logged by the show’s half-hour episodes.

Galecki had a lump in his throat again when he addressed the studio audience, some of who wore special t-shirts commemorating their presence at a TV milestone. “This is a dream come true for all of us.”

'Big Bang Theory' star Mayim Bialik shuts down inappropriate remark with cool sarcasm

'Big Bang Theory' star Mayim Bialik shuts down inappropriate remark with cool sarcasm Mayim Bialik's response to trolling is head and shoulders above the rest. "The Big Bang Theory" star, who plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the hit CBS comedy, poked back at a fan who left an unsolicited comment about her chest on Instagram. "Who knew this would make my day?" Bialik, 43, captioned a picture of herself posing with Pokémon character Pikachu Sunday, noting that there's "not a stain on my shirt although I often do have stains on my shirt." But it was not the actress' mediation necklace or new haircut that caught one follower's attention.

Kaley Cuoco, wiping away tears, said the entire team behind the show were more like family than coworkers. She quoted Lorre’s recent appraisal that the show would endure long after the credits roll on the final episode. “The Big Bang Theory will live on in our hearts forever,” Cuoco said. “It’s so sweet and simple, and it’s so true…everyone here is part of making Big Bang special, the entire crew. We love all of them.”

No spoilers here but the episode itself was a golden one. The central characters each have a major life moment and along the way there are appropriately grand-scale surprises (including an unexpected visitor, a huge happening, a giant announcement, and a major life step). Below, a sampling of the social media sentimentality for The Big Bang Theory’s final hurrah.

knock, knock, knock, thank you... Thank you, apartment 4A, for being a home to so many dreams come true, to so many friendships made. And thank YOU, ALL of you - yes, YOU, reading this right NOW! As we get ready to tape our final episode tonight, to walk in and out of this apartment door for the last time, it is hard to find the words to articulate what a profound experience this has been. But the words “love” and “gratitude” come to mind... so love and gratitude to all of you. ALL of you. Thank you. ❤️ (oh! and happy birthday to @sanctionedjohnnygalecki and @kunalkarmanayyar - talk about good timing... may your next 12 years be as vibrant and wonderful as the last 12 years in which i’ve had the pleasure to know and work with you both ????)

Do @kaleycuoco and I look like we’re keeping it together? Took this right before our final speed read. Before our final taping. Before my final emotional breakdown. Gonna miss working with Kaley so much. Sometimes you get to work with an actor that's so thoroughly in the moment that you can look to them at any time to ground you - Kaley has been that for me for eleven years. ❤️
