Randy's song "I Don't Need a Badge" reappears in at least two subsequent episodes: in "Mr. Monk and the Really Really Dead Guy," he plays the song as a one-man band (while forgetting many of the lyrics) as part of an FBI stakeout, and in "Mr. Monk Goes Camping," one of the Buddies in Blue has the song as their ringtone.

Dr. Oliver Bloom: Is it true that you've only been to a dentist once before?

Dr. Oliver Bloom: I gather it wasn't a good experience. Oh, this will be much worse!

Monk: 'Marathon Man'
22 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are two stories-in-one here, at least at the beginning. It turns out, of course, there is a connection. Overall, it's a very good episode, a fun one for the most part.

We have the normal dramatic opening. Here, a robbery of an armored truck, and the armored guys killed (we don't see that). After the commercial break, we have Lt. Randy Disher having a major toothache and going to the dentist. While under, anesthesia (but partially aware of what's going on), he witnesses the dentist getting into a big fight with someone who had just come into the room. Randy tells Capt. Stottlemeyer, Monk and Natalie about it but no one believes him. In frustration, and tired of being the butt of jokes, he quits the force!

Despite those serious scenes, it's a funny show with Monk at the dentist office, first as a visitor and second as an unwilling "Marathon Man" participant and Randy trying to be a rock star (in his mind).
