Goofs

In the very brief opening teaser, the man we assume to be Monk crosses a busy street and is hit by a speeding bus blaring its horn in warning. After the bus hits the man and the newspaper he was reading goes flying everywhere, a second man walks into frame on the opposite side of the street without reacting to the crash, revealing the fact that the street is just a stock shot that was manipulated digitally.

Quotes

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.
