Quotes

Dr. Charles Kroger: What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Adrian Monk: Well, I guess I'd hire you full time, and keep you on retainer 24/7. Maybe I'd buy you a house right next to mine so that I could just drop in, anytime.
[Chuckles]
Adrian Monk: This is fun. What would you do with a million dollars?
Dr. Charles Kroger: [Cautiously] Buy an island... a desert island... in the middle of nowhere.
Adrian Monk: So we would do our sessions over the phone?
Dr. Charles Kroger: Heh, you see this island, in my mind... no phone service.

A Very Silly (Too Silly) Episode
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mr. Monk, the cheapskate, is broke as usual, negligent is paying Natalie, as usual, reluctant to ask for a raise, as usual, and is solving cases for free, as usual. All of this has Natalie upset, naturally, until she sees that there is a one million dollar reward for anyone who solves the recent heist from a local museum of a diamond worth $20 million.

Monk has competition for the reward money: three goof-ball stereotypes (a retired Scotland Yard man, a nerd-like skinny young guy and a crude Dog-like bounty hunter, complete with pony tail. They follow Monk every step of the way, hoping to cash in on his intelligence, since Monk is the only one figuring things out.

This was a fun episode until the last dozen minutes when it got really silly, too silly, with an unsatisfying ending.
