Trivia

During the dinner sequence when they are showing the pictures on the screen, a picture of Adrian and Trudy is shown. A woman identifies Trudy but can't remember Adrian's name. Natalie leans over and says, "It's Adrian." The woman says, "No, that's not it. It's Anthony, I think." This is an obvious reference to the actor playing Adrian Monk, Anthony (Tony) Shalhoub.

Goofs

Kyle Brooks's plan to kill his wife and then utilize the suicide note she wrote in college never would have worked for a number of reasons. First off, paper ages and the note was written over 25 years ago (and any cop who saw that note would have been able to determine the age of the paper). Secondly, we are to assume that the hotel was booked full that night. As a result, there would have been plenty of people that would have heard Dianne screaming, indicating that her death was not a voluntary thing. Lastly, just before Monk, Natalie, Stottlemeyer and Disher burst into their room, as Kyle is about to push Dianne off the balcony, Kyle is not wearing gloves. Yet he comes into contact with Dianne's clothing, leaving fingerprints and DNA behind in the process. The cops would have found these prints, and would have known that Dianne's death wasn't suicide.

'Captain Cool' To The Rescue
3 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Capt. Stottlemeyer must be learning from Monk, because he makes some astute judgments right off the bat, examining a scene in which a woman fell down a flight of stairs and apparently killed herself in the fall. Of course, from the opening scene, we know the woman was pushed down the stairs by a man. A lapel pin found under the victim indicates she was on her way to her 25th college class reunion. Guess who else is going to that reunion?

Soon, the detectives figure out that lapel pin belonged to the killer, not the woman who was nurse at the school, not a student.

Meanwhile, we witness awkward moments at the reunion as Monk recognizes a lot of people but they have no clue who he is, but some remember Monk's nickname: "Captain Cool." (You'll have to watch to find out how he got that name!)

The episode was either of two extremes, regarding its dialog. It was either really stupid and silly or it was funny and warmly nostalgic. Murder case-wise, it was dumb, but it had a nice flashback feature showing Monk as a college student when he first met Trudy.
