Actor Dennis Franz insisted on taking the door which put him in hospital home after shooting the final NYPD BLUE scene.

Franz slashed his forearm when he accidentally put his arm through a glass pane in the door during a fight scene on the show with co-star James McDANIEL.

But, despite the pain he went through, he still has a great fondness for the locker room door.

The actor recalls, "There's a big plate glass window in the door and I'm guaranteed it was not breakable. During the course of the fight, bam, and I sliced my forearm open, had to get rushed to the hosptal.

"I spent the night in the hospital, I had surgery the next day, I had to finish the episode with a cast on. That door is at my house now."
