One of the things I've picked up on the show so far and I like is, when it gets down to it, how accepting Stottlemeyer is of Monk's quirks and OCD and how he does what he can do to make it okay for Monk, so to speak. Like in Mr. Monk and the Captain's Marriage in the junkyard, when Monk couldn't focus because there was only one car headlight that was working while all the others were out, Stottlemeyer simply took out his gun and shot out the headlight so it was all now "even."
Poor neglected Scout isn't good enough to be part of the Morgan Family of Happiness, and with Drew MIA, Monica at the hospital and at the park today, and Sam not caring about anyone that isn't Jason, I worry about who is watching Scout.
The scene where Monk wanted a few minutes alone with the bomb-creator (as well as Stottlemeyer touching Monk's hand for support on his way out the door and Monk barely noticing and not objecting) is one of my favorite scenes of the series thus far.
Do you remember if there was anything worth noting or quoting in there?
I thought Mr. Monk and Mrs. Monk was so sad, especially because at the beginning of the episode you saw how happy (by Monk standards) he was becoming and how he was at least attempting to take steps to move past the biggest part of his grief. And then it all got shot to hell because of the union guy and the actress paid to be Trudy.
Same; him and Anya both. I know they are both older now, but Lacey, Chelsie, Dmitry, Jenna, Lindsay and Witney all came over very soon after their seasons, and I can't imagine Pasha/Anya weren't asked. Maybe they turned it down?
The first one I found is the one where Monk gets drunk at the inn where he and Trudy went on their honeymoon and he goes back every year. (Side note: Monk - actually pretty successfully - giving the summation while wasted was hysterical.) Stottlemeyer helps get a sleeping Monk into Natalie's car, buckles his seat-belt and puts the blanket around him and when he (Stottlemeyer) leaves, Natalie says "Happy anniversary, Adrian. I'm sorry I didn't believe you."
