A wide-eyed William Shatner is being pressed against the wall, held up by his lapels on a Toronto sound stage. The actor is being interrogated by an angry Jason Priestley.

The confrontation is over someone “cooking the books” and Priestley’s character isn’t happy about it. But Shatner is giving as good as he gets. “Speaking as a regular, the chocolate pastry is to die for,” he snorts.

The scene is perfect, except someone flushes a Porta Potty and the sound is caught on tape. The actors laugh. They do another take.
