Quotes

Adrian Monk: Fine, everybody just go out there and give 100%.
Emily C.: But Coach Hayden said we should give 110%.
Adrian Monk: No, no, that's a bad idea anyway. It's mathematically impossible. Just give 100%, it's a nice round number.
Emily C.: Well I'm going to give 110%.
Adrian Monk: Fine, okay, then Julie, you give 90%.
Emily J.: Well I'm going to give 115%.
Adrian Monk: For god's sake, fine, then Julie you're down to 75%.
Julie Teeger: Mr. Monk, how am I supposed to...?
Adrian Monk: Just do it! Okay, all right, now that's 110%, 100%, 100% 115%, 75%.

simply terrific

I started watching Monk not long ago, through cable TV. At first I was just amazed watching the main character do strange things. Then I couldn't stop watching the movies because it is the only TV show that really, really, really makes me laugh. At every show I get anxious to see what "comes next" when it comes to Monk's behavior. I think one of the most hilarious act was to see Monk ironing his shoelaces in the episode where he plays his assistant's assistant at a basketball game ! that was really funny ! I would like to compliment Mr. Jack Bernstein. I admire his ideas of acts one has never heard of ! Also, a special compliment goes to Mr. Shalhoub. He is the right guy to play that role, no doubt about it.
