Dr. Moris Lancaster: Well, that's very impressive. We both have similar jobs. We both analyze clues and solve problems. Only you look outward, and I look inward. So, now. It's my turn. So, sit.

A bit dumb
20 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

OK - not the best episode. Mr Monk is arrested after walking into someone else's home (thinking it is his own) and it is clear he is having a bad day. While in the nut house for a few days 'rest' he gets involved in the mysterious death of a doctor from several years earlier. And guess what! He solves it - after some business involving Santa Claus and a very angry woman (both patients of the said nut house).This episode shows that anything mentioned earlier always has a bearing on the outcome, so it is pretty much waiting for the flagged objects to turn up later. The crime solved there isn't much mention of his breakdown or whether it will appear again. How mentally ill is the guy? It seems to ebb and flow.
