This episode reunites Joy Ride (2001) stars Ted Levine & Steve Zahn. See more »


After the first time Jack stands up to shoot at the prison guard (who is shooting at Adrian, Natalie, and Jack), Adrian confronts him about taking his gun when he ducks back down behind the shelter. In that shot there is something resembling an ankle monitor (?) wrapped around Natalie's right ankle. As the camera closes in on Jack responding to Monk's charge, Natalie appears to duck down further while trying to pull her pant leg down over whatever is around her ankle. The mysterious ankle object is nowhere to be seen in the next scene. See more »

Adrian Monk: Ask? Ask you what?
Jack Monk, Jr.: About us, Dad, anything. Go, shoot.
Adrian Monk: Okay... what was his favorite song?
Jack Monk, Jr.: "Ain't Misbehavin'." Sang it in the bathtub.
Adrian Monk: How did he take his coffee?
Jack Monk, Jr.: With whiskey. Jameson's if he could afford it, which he never could.

the moron's half brother
31 January 2018 | by sandcrab277See all my reviews

SPOILER: Neither moron brother is of the few laughs i ever got from this show was when brooke adams was in the cast, now she was funny and should be used more often, like every surprise on titus welliver being the murderer...he can always be counted on the be the bad, evil guy...not even a stretch of the imagination can make me believe these morons are half brothers...all the quirks have become so mundane whenever they don't occur no one misses them
