This episode shows the magic of TV. Such a sweet story about Monk and the kid who melts his heart and helps him in becoming more human. The little boy is precious. It's a classic! A different feel from the usual Monk episode with less police interaction and more personal elements. It's a gem. Also a little Trivia: Tony Shalhoub's wife plays the mother of the kidnapped violin player. The last scene will absolutely tear your heart out. This episode could be used as a sort of litmus test to sort out humans from hard-hearted people incapable of love or empathy. I almost fell off the couch during the 911 call scene. It's one I could watch over and over. Enjoy!
