Delany and Denton made it clear that their real life chemistry and respect for each other made shooting their brief romance an enjoyable experience. The two had so much fun during the filming that ABC decided it was too much to go on air. The scene was supposed to be shot in black and white in the security camera to make it grainy. Unfortunately, those effects were not used and the scene was not made blurry enough to go on air.
2Denton actually made Hatcher blush after the famous bush scene

Later, Denton confessed that the scene held a special place in his heart. Denton says that the two walked across the street and had their first date.

Apart from cop killing and pain killer addiction, the two characters are quite similar
5James Denton was happy to die
According to Denton, he was approached by Marc in a gentleman’s way when the script writers decided that it was important for a character to be killed off before the audience expected it.
