<blockquote>"There was so much to do that we were always putting in long hours, and under the pressure there was a tendency to go a bit crazy. Bruce MacRae was finishing up a [[phaser]] at about 4 am one night and wanted to spray it down with a coat of Clear-Cote. So I told him to take it outside and into the middle of the street so he wouldn't get paint on the parked cars and the fumes wouldn't be in the shop. So getting into the spirit of it all he slipped on his German helmet (don't all prop-makers keep German helmets around?) and his protective goggles, and went running out the door with his white shop coat for protection. So there he is&ndash;standing out in the middle of the street at 4 am singing German beer-drinking songs and waving this twinkling phaser around. Bruce says he never heard them or saw them, but these cops came up behind him and in a quiet voice said, "Come here, mein Herr!". A very frightened Bruce MacRae shot his hands into the air and screamed, "Don't shoot!". Eventually he managed to convince the officers that he was painting a prop gun, was working late and the shop was open. I was startled, though, to see two cops walk in the front door with a somewhat shaken Bruce asking, "Is there anyone here who wants to take responsibility for this person that we found outside?" We all laughed and took a moment to show the cops around the shop. Finally the cops admitted that, "We knew when we saw this guy in the street wearing the helmet and waving a phaser gun that he was either in the movie industry or nuts....".
