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

It is said in this episode that Monk met and fell in love with Trudy while in College. However, in "Mr. Monk Goes to the Ballgame," Monk says that he was working as a detective when Trudy fell in love with him. See more »

Quotes

Adrian Monk: [about Dianne Brooks having two dogs with the name Tangerine] One in a million. Maybe one in a trillion.
Natalie Teeger: Mr. Monk, forget about the dog!
Adrian Monk: How could the same person have two dogs, 25 years apart, happened to be named Tangerine? Tangerine, and this Tangerine is black!
Natalie Teeger: Why would anybody lie about a dog's name?
Adrian Monk: I don't know, but... there is something weird about that guy. Dianne said that he couldn't wait to meet me, but he didn't even know I was a detective.
Natalie Teeger: Mr. Monk, come on! Let's have some fun!

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.
