I said, "What are you going to do, tell the captain of police to leave?" So then he introduces himself to the "captain of police"! And Denis and I are looking at each other: "OK, we're not going to touch him, right?" We didn't know if to laugh or to punch him. Let us finish this thing!

And this guy, when he realized, "Ohmigod, it's a captain of police," he gently moved to go clean his sweat off somewhere else.

He didn't know it was a movie. He thought we were doing a segment with the captain of police. "Why in front of our building?" It's, like, maybe it's an embezzler's building or something? I don't know. It was a silly moment. He thought Denis was a police captain. He was the one guy who didn't recognize Denis Leary!
