Quotes

[after finding out how his favorite Cabernet is made]
Adrian Monk: I've been drinking that wine for fifteen years! It's Foot Wine! I can taste it...
Natalie Teeger: Oh, come on, you cannot taste it!
Adrian Monk: I feel like I can taste the feet... the toes... and what's between the toes...
Al Nicoletto: And the fungus. It really is barbaric.
Natalie Teeger: Okay, I didn't see any fungus! Look, I'm sure they have clean feet, there are probably rules about that stuff...

A Bit Different
29 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The opening shows a man shooting another in the latter'rs hotel room, killing him. He was after money from a heist. Just before the killing the other guy, he finds out the man who can provide the money for him is in California.

Meanwhile, Monk and Natalie are off on a short vacation trip to a beautiful winery and inn where Adrian once dined and stayed overnight with his wife. He comes here once a year for sentimental reasons, sits alone at dinner talking to his dead wife. Unfortunately, some nerd named Larry Zweibell comes to his table, messes things up and then goes over to play poker with a bunch of people. The next morning Monk goes to see Larry about hangover recipe (Monk had one sip, but has a hangover). In short, no one has ever heard of "Larry."

Was imagining this guy? Well, we saw it, too, so obviously something fishy is going on here and it's probably somehow tied in with that beginning murder scene.

This episode was a bit different, but another good one in a season that, so far, is very good. Oh - Monk DOES get drunk, for real, at the end. Normally I don't think drunks are funny, but Tony Shaloub gave a pretty funny performance with it.
