This is the fourth time since Trudy's death that Monk has worn a tie (the first time being in "Mr. Monk Meets the Godfather," although that was because the tie was a wire, he wore a tie in "Mr. Monk goes to the Office" and in "Mr. Monk Is At Your Service," he wears a tie as part of his butler attire).

In the last scene when Adrian is staring down the repairman, Natalie is seen reading a book when she decides to get up and stand behind Adrian in the Kitchen. The book she is reading is visibly open in the middle but starts to flip closed (exposing the inside back cover and dust jacket flap) when she gets up. The next POV shows the table in the Dining room in the background (with pages laying to the front of the front exposing the dust jacket and back inside cover) while both Natalie & Adrian are staring the repairman down. Then Natalie quickly backs up and sits down while pretending to read the book . The book has quickly opened back up to the middle section in the jump cut from the perspective of the dining room view to the kitchen. See more »


Lt. Randall Disher: I'd like to meet him.
Natalie Teeger: Who's that?
Lt. Randall Disher: My twin, my doppelganger. I wonder if I could take him.
Natalie Teeger: You mean in a fight?
Lt. Randall Disher: Yeah, I bet I could take him. Man versus doppelganger.

Tough Monk
6 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Monk is pulled into service by the FBI to pose as a notorious contract killer for the mafia. The reason: the real killer has been run over by a crosstown bus, which the FBI is keeping under wraps. And guess what? The killer and Monk could pass for twins. An old plot, but funny as all get-out here. Eventually, Monk gets a little too caught up in his role. When the FBI decides to pull the plug on the charade, Monk insists on seeing it through. Even if it means putting himself in mortal danger. Monk totally immersing himself in the contract killer's character is similar to an earlier episode where he became a devoted acolyte of a shady cult leader. It works.
