Quotes

[Natalie is helping Monk re-paper his walls]
Natalie: Mr. Monk, it's level. See? The bubble is right in the middle.
Adrian Monk: I think it's broken.
Natalie: Mr. Monk, the level is not broken! It's a bubble on a stick.
Adrian Monk: Let's just make sure...
[He unwraps a second level and holds it next to the first one]
Natalie: You have two levels?
Adrian Monk: I use this level to check the other levels. It's my level-checking level.
Julie Teeger: [deadpan] How do you know that one's not broken?
Adrian Monk: That's a good question. I take my level checking level to the hardware store twice...

Good Mix Of Humor & Suspense
26 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A pizza men is 40 minutes late delivering a pizza to Natalie, her daughter and Monk. Natalie notices the man left her a $50 bill by mistake, rushes out to tell him, but he had just driven away. She follows him and discovers him parked in the middle of the city, dead in his vehicle....but he's not the guy who delivered the pizza. She spends the rest of the show trying to find out what's going on here.

There is another story, a bigger one that all the cops are in on as a prominent female judge is missing. Capt. Stottlemeyer has to bring all the evidence into Monk's bedroom so he'll look at it and help solve the case.

Much of the show is devoted to how Monk's illness which, of course, he makes into a huge production. His carrying on and actions while suffering no more than a bad cold are pretty ludicrous, as you can imagine if you've seen this show before.

The ending is suspenseful and the episode overall is very entertaining.
