Quotes

[Natalie wants to hire Monk]
Adrian Monk: Oh, this check's no good.
Natalie Teeger: That's sweet of you to say, but...
Adrian Monk: No, I mean it's literally no good. You can't cover this.
Natalie Teeger: Sure I can. I just deposited my paycheck on Wednesday.
Adrian Monk: Right. But I happen to know that that check is going to bounce. So this check is pretty much worthless.
Natalie Teeger: You wrote me a bad check? How could you do that?
Adrian Monk: I might ask you the same question.

Monk and the theater man
21 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Monk and Natalie attend a community theater show featuring Natalie's daughter, Julie. While there, they discover a prominent newspaper critic is in attendance, although why he would want to see a community theater produced has them mystified. While the show progresses, a woman is thrown from a high-rise balcony just blocks away. Monk is called in on the case, but it Natalie who figures out who dunnit. At first, Monk and the cops dismiss her findings. So it's up to Natalie to come up with some solid evidence. This one's tricky, and delightful. A running gag has Monk going to the theater men's room,which has an attendant and is immaculate. Real hand towels! And many different soaps! Monk is in heaven.
