Storyline

Natalie is determined to throw a surprise party for Mr. Monk, even though he's certain that she can't do it. Meanwhile, a janitor is killed shortly before a businessman is poisoned. Mr. Monk is distracted during the case, because he's always on the look out for a surprise party being sprung on him, and also obsessed with a new vacuum cleaner! Captain Stottlemeyer finally sees some romance in the form of Virginia Madsen as T. K. Jensen. Written by Sharnhorst

Goofs

Trash compactors generally do not have shredders. Shredders are designed for one type of material (paper, plastic, wood, cardboard, etc.). They cannot handle a variety of regular trash - or the tire iron that clogged the machine. Even if this compactor was meant for just paper, there was no signage indicating this. See more »

Quotes

Adrian Monk: If you buy me something, then I have to pretend to like it. And then I have to remember to thank you, and then I have to return it, and it's a nightmare. It's a nightmare!

Ice is nice
20 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Monk's impending 50th birthday is fraught with peril as Natalie plans a surprise party for the reluctant detective. He also gets his hands on a super-duper vacuum cleaner, which he does everything but marry. Meanwhile, people start dying around him. The two plots mesh quite nicely. Meanwhile, the captain meets a woman who might just prove to be a keeper. This is assuming she doesn't turn out to be a killer (remember his last flame?). I must admit the killer in this episode is telegraphed early on, but it is fun watching him try to outmaneuver the defective detective. We get to see Monk as a little boy in a poignant flashback.
