Storyline

While delivering Monk's newspaper, the paperboy is killed by somebody intent on stealing the paper. The detective's apartment is subsequently filled with police as they investigate the crime. The invasion of the numerous and untidy cops as well as a visit from Monk's bizarre neighbor rattle poor Adrian, who concludes that the thief was trying to keep Monk from seeing something in the paper. Sharona gets Monk out of the apartment by taking him to the convenience store to buy a paper. Monk pores through the paper, solving unrelated crimes as he reads, despite the interruptions from his annoying neighbor. Another murder, this time of the convenience store clerk, confuses things somewhat. However, Monk eventually ends up on the right track. Written by John Hosking

Goofs

When Sharona is reading Randy's personal ad, a close-up of the ad shows that she reads the entire thing, but a few seconds later she leans over and reads an additional line that was not in the printed ad. See more »

Quotes

Malcolm Cowley: Is there a problem?
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: I was reading about you in the newspaper.
[Shows the copy of the paper to Cowley]
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: That's you, isn't it? "It Just Wasn't His Day." It says here that you had two accidents in the course of ten minutes. First you hit a little tree, and then you drove another half a mile and hit a lamppost.
Malcolm Cowley: That's right. Is that a crime?
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Yeah. It is if you were in fact intentionally damaging your car so you would avoid having to explain a smashed-in grille. See, Mr. Monk found this other article.
