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

When Kyle Brooks pushes Katherine Rutherford down the stairs to her death, she lands on her stomach with her head twisted to the side. But when we see the cops performing their investigation, she's lying face up on her back. The police wouldn't move the body that much - even if they suspected an accident. At the very least they would mark the body's original position with tape or chalk, neither of which is seen. Also, when the victim dies, her eyes are open, but later, they are closed. See more »

Quotes

[Randy is at his desk, and noticing something, he rushes into Stottlemeyer's office]
Lt. Randall Disher: Captain? The lapel pin. I just remembered where I saw it.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: When?
Lt. Randall Disher: Just now at my desk.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: No I mean... tell me about the pin, Randy.
Lt. Randall Disher: Monk. He's been wearing the same pin all week for his 25th college reunion.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: I think you're right. Did the victim go to Berkeley?
Lt. Randall Disher: No, she worked there. She was a nurse at the university clinic for, like, 20 years.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: But she didn't graduate, so this isn't her pin.
Lt. Randall Disher: The killer.

Plot summary
17 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before Monk's college reunion, a beloved school nurse is murdered. Monk attends the reunion and, of course, solves the murder, and also saves the life of a classmate in danger. There are frequent flashbacks to Monk's college days.

This is a great episode, marred only by the plot device of an improbable talent Monk has of being able to tell what is written when someone uses his back as a table on which to write a note.

In this episode, we get to see Monk's first meeting with Trudy, and the blossoming of their relationship. In a sweet and poignant subplot, he triumphs over competition who is much smoother than he. We also get to see how the other college students viewed Monk, and how he got the nickname "Captain Cool." Sadly, but appropriately, it was not because they admired his hipness.

A hilarious moment occurs when Capt. Stottlemeyer is exposed for his role in an unpopular police action in his younger days. The episode is worth watching for that alone.
