Hold that line
7 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Monk and the captain attend a football game, but before they can get to their seats, something unusual occurs in the parking lot during the tailgate party that soon has Monk hot on the trail of a killer. A star quarterback has met an untimely end, and it's up to Monk to figure out the case while the captain chafes at missing the actual football game. One of Monk's best lines occurs during this episode: confronted by hundreds of grown men wearing football jerseys and acting like idiots in the parking lot, Monk asks, "Who are all these people and where are their parents?" Sports commentator Bob Costas guest stars and tells an hysterical story about Monk saving him from an angry feline many years ago. A must-see for MONK fans.
