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.

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.
