Monk is asked to go undercover when his doppelgänger, a mob hit man, unexpectedly dies leaving federal agents with no leads as to his next victim.
Did You Know?
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
