Monk is upset that Dr. Kroeger is socializing with Harold Krenshaw. When Kroeger says he's concerned about his son, Monk offers to help. Monk goes to see him. He says that he and his friends found what appears to be a treasure map and he wants Monk to help him find it. They find some cash but he thinks there is more. So they go out there. At the same time Stollemeyer is investigating a bank robbery and somehow, the treasure map and it are linked. Written by

During one scene that happens during Monk, Natalie, Troy, Ridley, and Pez's hunt for the money, they stop by an ungated grade crossing. A train horn is heard, and a Metrolink passenger train passes through the crossing. What makes this a goof is the fact that Metrolink is the commuter railroad service for the city of Los Angeles. The geography of the surroundings in the scene is most likely to depict the area around Altamont Pass, where the Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) service runs. See more
