Trivia

Traylor Howard (Natalie) really was pregnant during production. Thus, in every scene in which she appears, her stomach is concealed behind something, whether it be a car, a table, or a coat. The only exception is when Natalie "pretends" to be pregnant; then her stomach becomes completely visible. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1 min) As Natalie asks Monk to help her with her coat they step into the hall and you can clearly see a crew-person standing just behind them against the wall. See more »

Quotes

Adrian Monk: [measures the distance between utensils] This fork is a centimeter too close.
Mrs. Murphy: It's only a centimeter.
Adrian Monk: For the want of a nail, Mrs. Murphy, the kingdom was lost.

Considering that many people have had to say negative things about season 5, I find this to be a great trip off the normal track.

It seems the SFPD has issued another hiring freeze, and Monk has been deeply hurt by this, until Dr. Kroger suggests that he go into another career. Monk accompanies Natalie on a trip out to her parents, and learns about the apparent accident that took the lives of Ralph and Camilla Buchanan, who lived just up the road. While the police say Camilla hit her head on the big rock and that Ralph died of a heart attack, Natalie thinks that Ralph's son, Paul, who stalked her all through high school, killed them, and so she sends Monk to look around the Buchanan estate. Monk is taken up by Buchanan, and he goes undercover as "Adrian Melville," a brilliant butler with a close eye for detail, and Monk realizes that he has found his dream job.

All in all, one of the greatest episodes of the season.
