    Here are some of my ideas!!

    Mr. Monk makes a Bet: When Monk thinks it's one culprit and Disher, natalie, and Stottlemeyer think it's another culprit, Monk makes a bet with them to prove he's right.

    Mr. Monk and The Rockclimber: Monk investiagtes the murder of a rockclimber.

    Mr. Monk and the Return of Sharona: Sharona returns and asks Monk to investiagte a murder that she witnessed.

    Mr. Monk goes Bowling: Monk investiagtes the murder of an employee at a bowling alley and must become part of a tournament to get more answers.

    Yeah be nice to have a Sharona episode but doubt it will happen because they're bringing so many people back for episode 100 and she isn't one of them. So doubt she'll ever return.

    As far as episode ideas go:

    Mr. Monk and The Mountie: Monk meets Benton Fraser and they solve a crime together. Monk has a fit through most of the episode as Fraser tastes stuff off the ground, his deaf wolf licks Monk and Fraser touches everything and anything not worrying about germs. Monk is impressed at how neat he always looks though. (never ever gonna happen but it would be so funny watching those two opposites)

    Mr. Monk and The Gift: Monk receives a gift in the mail. He gets Natalie to open it and he finds a finger inside with a note "Catch me if you can". Monk keeps receiving body parts in the mail until he eventaully solves the case because of a distinctive mark on one of the body parts.

    Mr. Monk and The Toilet: Monk's toilet is finished and he has to get a new one. He finally finds one he likes after looking at all of them 10 times. He gets it home and installed, then he takes the back off and finds a gun in it with some blood spatter on it. The case ensues.

    Mr. Monk and The Conspiracy: Monk is harassed by a conspiracy nut, who's trying to convince Monk he should be trying to solve the JFK assasination or the Roswell conspiracy. When the conspiracy nut gets framed for the murder of a big business tycoon. Everything points to him and Monk thinks he did it. Until Monk sees a limo drive by and gets a quick glance of the tycoon alive and well. He tries to go to the Captain but now no one believes him. Monk sets out to solve the case with the conspiracy nuts help.

    Mr. Monk and the Pot Hole: Monk is walking down a quiet street enjoying himself when he sees a pot hole in the middle of the street. One pot hole, no other cracks or anything. He orders Natalie to go fill it. They argue for a bit and a car whiz's by them. It hits the pot hole and the trunk pops open. Monk's sees an arm fly up and down and then the truck slams shut. Monk sets out to find the guy.

    hapat, great ideas. By the way, i just saw Mr. Monk goes to the office today, and he plays in a bowling game in that one, so mine wouldn't work out.

    Mr. Monk and the Vigilante: Convicted and paroled murderers are being systematically killed by an unknown person who dispatches of his targets in seemingly secure locations; he even eliminates murderers in prison without leaving a trace. Monk is called in to find out who this maniac is and how he's able to carry out his crimes, but his investigation is hindered as he, like many in San Francisco, support the vigilante for getting rid of the criminal scum in their city.

    Mr. Monk's Wild Goose Chase: A mob hitman that Stottlemeyer arrested ten years ago is going to be executed. The day before his death, he requests to speak with the captain and reveals to the captain that one of his mafia associates has planted four bombs throughout the city that will be detonated after the execution. If he's granted a stay, however, no one will be harmed by the explosives. Stottlemeyer does have another option, however; decipher the clues as to where the bombs are located. With Monk assisting him, Stottlemeyer rushes to find and disarm all the bombs, all the while fearing that this distraction is part of a much greater plan orchestrated by the convict.

    Mr. Monk is an Otaku: Monk investigates a murder at an anime/manga convention and is overwhelmed by the intensity of Japanese animation. He requires help from Julie, who is friends with some of the kids attending, to learn about the anime culture and gain insight into the habits of the victim and who may have killed her.

    Mr. Monk and the Ace: A former RAF pilot who emigrated to California after the second world war calls on Monk to investigate the death of one of his old war chums. At first Monk is delighted at the thought of associating with a clean, sophisticated British gentleman, but is quickly put off by the old Ace's bombastic attitude and tendency to flash back to his days in combat. Mr. Monk and the Funny Pages: The murder of an editorial cartoonist has the paper call on Monk to solve the case, which he's happy to do until he learns that the staff is planning to replace Marmaduke with a new comic. Outraged, he demands that the editor keep his favorite strip in if he solves the case. Meanwhile, Natalie gets in a discussion with other staff members and her views earn her a spot writing an op-ed column.

    Mr. Monk and the Killer Cop: While attending a friend's bachelor party, Randy Disher has only one drink and yet passes out. When he comes to, he's in a car next to a dead man, and holding in his hand the gun that fired the fatal shot. Even worse, there's a connection between the two. The murdered man was a drunk driver who killed a mother and her two children. Disher caught him, but he only got six months in prison due to a technicality, and the lieutenant has always held a grudge against the driver since he felt justice wasn't served. With heavy circumstantial evidence against him, Disher implores Monk to clear his name while Dr. Bell tries to help Randy recover his memories from his blackout.

    Mr. Monk gets Shot: While investigating a murder involving an assassin, Monk gets shot at by an unknown person. Everybody thinks it's the assassin that's involved in the homicide, but Monk eventually starts to figure out more details that might lead them to another culprit.

    I have to say, the ideas I like best are Monk dealing with the conspiracy theorist, recieiving body parts, and getting shot. They'd make killer episodes.

    Here are some more I thought of. I know some are a little goofy, but hopefully some people will like them.

    Mr. Monk is Batman: An errant baseball hitting Monk's head in the park leads to one of his strangest experiences. When Monk comes to he sees a woman's purse stolen, rushes down the mugger, tackles him and even punches the thug. Natalie can't believe her boss' behavior, and her amazement only grows over the next few days. Monk is braver, more confident, and he's working out hours each day. But his change in personality doesn't stop there; each night, Monk takes to the streets in a Batman costume to take down criminals. Will his new heroic persona help him in his pursuit of a serial arsonist, or will it get him killed?

    Mr. Monk and the Crossdressers: Sapphire Sara, a transvestite who was one of Trudy's friends, comes to Monk for a favor. Sara is the head of this year's San Francisco Drag Pageant, and she and other pageant have narrowly escaped a series of dangerous attacks. Recently she got a letter demanding the Pageant's $100,000 grand prize or the attacks would continue regardless of who was hurt or died. Eager to help a friend of his late wife, Monk takes the case, though he is greatly confused by the lifestyle. As his investigation progresses, Natalie is flattered when one of the drag queens hits on her, and Randy is ticked that he has to go undercover as a pageant contestant.

    Mr. Monk at the Races: A high-society snob murders his wealthy ex-wife and steals her prized thoroughbred without leaving any evidence to link him to the crime. To bring him to justice, Monk must enter the world of high-stakes horse racing... and if he can muster it, enter the dirty stables when required.

    Mr. Monk's Hairy Situation: During a salon treatment, Natalie and Julie agree to try a new moisturizer that claims to make their hair brilliant. The next day the Teeger's come to regret their decision when they wake up bald. Furious, Natalie heads to the salon to chew out the stylist who treated her and her daughter, only to find that it's now a crime scene. The stylist was stabbed to death, and the moisturizer used on her and Julie is missing. Monk must learn who the murderer is and what significance the hair-removing compound has to the case.

    Mr. Monk and the Dark Horse: Stottlemeyer requests Monk's services when an assassination attempt on a Libertarian running for congress claims the life of the politican's speechwriter. As attempts on his life grow more serious, Monk finds himself clashing with the would-be congressman's views on less government interference, as he believes regulation is necessary to make people more sanitary and orderly.

    Mr. Monk and the Chupacabra: A Hispanic rancher is arrested for the mutilation murders of a neighboring farm owner and his livestock. His daughter comes to Monk professing the man's innocence, claiming the deaths were caused by a chupacabra. When cattle on another farm begin to turn up dead and drained of blood, Monk must act quickly to stop the killer, regardless of whether it's a human or a monster from the shadows.

    i think because of Monk kind of forgetting that Trudy wasn't alive anymore and that she was there. That's why he was sent to the asylum.

    Yeah he ended up in the asylum because he was in someone else's house and didn't know it, but how did he end up in the house to begin with? Was he walking around and somehow walked into someone else's house which just happened to have an unlocked door or a lock that his key just happened to fit?

    I love these Monk ideas, and I have some of my own.

    Mr. Monk Makes a Dunk: The death of a famous streetball player sends Monk undercover as a streetball player to lure out the killer, but his inconsisent skills of playing basketball is making his case more harder to solve.

    Mr. Monk in the Sewer: When several workers are mauled by some sort of a wild animal, Monk and the others discover that the workers had a common connection they all worked in the sewers. In order to flush out whoever or whatever is doing it, Monk must face his fear of going in the sewer.

    Mr. Monk Comes to Dinner: Natalie's new rich boyfriend, Alex, invites her and Monk for dinner at his multi-millionare mansion, but what they don't realize is that there was a murder and her boyfriend is the prime suspect; Monk takes it upon himself to solve the case and find out who could frame Nicole's beau.

    Mr. Monk Goes to the Olympics: When the famous U.S.A gymnast, Horace Gunther, mysteriously disappears without a trace, Monk--who looks very much like Horace--disguises as him, when Horace is accepted to this year's Olympics. Monk must not only master the arts of a gymnst, but he has only three days before the Olympics games begin while in all finding the real Horace.

    Mr. Monk and the President: The assissnation of a convicted senator sends Monk, Natalie, Stottlemeyer, and Disher to D.C in order to flush out the assassin, but when they discover the president is the next target, Monk and Disher goes undercover as Secret Service agents to protect him.

    I like that idea. For some reason, it seems like the theme could fit in with the chupacabra story I thought up. Maybe the stories could be combined; Monk investigates the mauling deaths, but his work is hindered by an obsessed cryptozoologist who is convinced a mysterious creature is the culprit.

    I guess he was kind of having a flashback or something and didn't know what was happening. I'm not sure.

    Nah, you were right. I just didn't get all the info. I asked my sister and she said "On the anniversery of Trudy's death, he sometimes get's so upset that he blocks out what happened, and in this case he thought he still lived in that house --so he went there from the grocery store just like he used to before Trudy died." I just started season two so I'm not up on everything. I'll try and post in the right section next time too, but I love the idea of a bowling alley (you know because the shoes are never cleaned, just sprayed). Oh, and the porn set idea. It reminds me of when he went on vacation with Sharona and the investigator at the hotel had that light that picks up blood and other "stuff."

    Mr. Monk and the Comedian: A comedian thinks that someone is trying to kill him so he hires Monk to find out who.

    Mr. Monk goes to the zoo: When somebody locked a zoo employee in a lion cage which caused him to get mauled to death, it's up to Monk to find the culprit.

    Mr. Monk and Mr. Monk: When a stranger appears to monk and claims that monk stole his identity and that the stranger is the REAL adrian Monk, monk must stop at nothing to prove he's the real monk.
