Storyline

When billionaire software magnate Sidney Teal is shot dead by ex-cop Archie Modine after allegedly turning mugger and another policeman mysteriously flees the scene, Stottlemeyer calls in Monk to investigate. Not only is the idea of a billionaire turning mugger hard to swallow, the circumstances of the mugging are suspicious. Why, for example, would a mugger wear knee and elbow pads? Meanwhile, Sharona threatens to quit (this time for sure) when her paycheck bounces, and Stottlemeyer is hounded by reporters demanding information on "Fraidy Cop." Unable to continue the investigation without Sharona's help, Monk returns to the seemingly unsolvable mystery of his wife's murder only to find that his "new" clue isn't new; he's already talked to writer Kelly Street three times. Sharona finds that selling lamps isn't nearly as much fun as working for Monk (with or without money) and comes to the rescue with a new clue involving Teal and Modine. Written by WyattJones

When the shooter from the yellow Mustang squeals away after shooting at Monk and hitting the glass panel, you can see the right hand windows all fully up. So how did he shoot at him, unless the window was down? See more »

Quotes

Disher: Hey, Mr. Modine. What happened next?
Archie Modine: Well, he came at me with a knife, and he-he said something.
Christine: He said, "Don't be a hero".
Disher: "Don't be a hero"?
Archie Modine: Yeah. Anyway, I pulled my piece and I got three rounds off.
Disher: Guess he didn't realize he was messing with a second lieutenant.
Witness: I just live right up there. I saw the whole thing. That's exactly what happened.
Archie Modine: Hey, Lieutenant. Is that really Sidney Teal?
Disher: I'm afraid so.
Archie Modine: Geez.

Is this Murder She Wrote?
20 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

An adequate episode about a dating couple who are mugged outside a theatre but who fight back killing the mugger. Turns out the mugger is a famous billionaire. Monk is brought in to find out what on earth one of the richest men on the planet was doing trying to mug someone. Of course there is a twist, but it all plays too much like Murder She Wrote (not a bad show in itself but formulaic nonetheless). Work-about fare with a bit of silliness about a hired actor thrown in (I'm sure the cast loved making comments like 'he's quite an actor!', and 'look at him go, he's magnificent' or something close to that). It is actually Sharona who comes up with the pivotal clue, so at least the dynamic duo part of plot line is working well here. Otherwise, there are better episodes.
