Storyline

Thinking that he's just accompanying Sharona to the airport to pick up her aunt, Monk discovers to his dismay that she's the one making the flight. The choice between being on his own without Sharona or flying cross-country to New Jersey is a tough one, but he overcomes his fears and boards the plane. After annoying the passengers and crew with his first-time-flier questions, he becomes even more unsettled after small anomalies convince him that the Frenchman sitting across the aisle has murdered his wife and the woman accompanying him is an impostor. He calls Captain Stottlemeyer only to find that it's the captain's day off but manages to persuade Lt. Disher to search the airport for a body. With on-and-off help from Sharona (who would rather be "helping" Tim Daly decide whether to accept a role in an upcoming film) and from the extension cord salesman in the seat next to him, Monk tries to provide the evidence Disher needs to order the arrest. Meanwhile another murder is committed ... Written by WyattJones

Trivia

There were a series of interesting cameos: Sharona spots Tim Daly on their flight, and says he was on the TV show Wings (1990). Monk claims he never saw the show, and asks if the show was any good, and she responds, "Well, *he* was." Tony Shalhoub played "Antonio Scarpacci" on "Wings" for nearly the entire run of the show. Leigh, the stewardess who is being driven to distraction by Monk's antics on the plane, is portrayed by Brooke Adams, Tony Shalhoub's wife in real life. Series creator Andy Breckman can be seen taking a seat in first class near the beginning of the episode. See more »

Goofs

At :29 when Monk is talking to Disher, the salesman next to him (played by Garry Marshall) is wearing a black sleeping mask. Seconds later and from a different camera, the sleeping mask is gone - presumably so he can exchange a few words with Monk while he's half asleep. See more »

Quotes

Sharona Fleming: He always thinks people are killing each other.
Adrian Monk: And I'll tell you why. Because they are.
