Goofs

Psychiatric medications don't start working overnight. They need to be built up over a few weeks before they have any noticeable effects. Also, a (good) psychiatrist would have started Monk at a low dosage, which would gradually be increased over several months until the right balance was found, eliminating his fears and phobias but NOT compromising his detective skills.

One of the most touching moments in TV history
6 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw only a part of this episode on cable years ago, without knowing the title or even which season the episode was from. I have been searching for it for years, and finally saw it again a short time ago when I rented the third season. The reason I loved this episode so much was a small thing, but something I considered incredibly touching. In a scene where Adrian is missing his long-deceased wife, he goes into his closet, takes out a pillow inside a zippered plastic case, takes out the pillow, and lays with it, smelling it. What a romantic notion, that someone would save and seal their spouse's pillow, so that years later, they could still smell them on it, and feel their presence! Whether or not the actual scent was still there after so many years, or it was just present in his imagination, the notion is one of the most loving and romantic things I've ever seen in a film or television show!
