    Only one word comes to mind after watching this episode. "Randy". Enough said.

    You just got to love Randy

    There's just one big question that this episode left unanswered. What does an egg-eating robot look like (without a costume on)?

    I thought this was a fantastic episode! Although I figured out the murder early (which NEVER happens), I was so entertained by the relationship between Monk and Marge that I didn't care.

    It was a really beautiful and sad story. I wish they hadn't made Marge move though. I would have liked to see Monk have a friend near-by.

    It is true, this eps was really about Monk and Marge and it was refreshing to see Monk react with different emotions.

    I liked the scene where Adrian told Natalie about the muffins that Marge made for him

    I absolutely LOVED this episode for the first half, but I just knew the episode was going to rip my heart out and step on it halfway through by having everything fall apart for Monk yet again. It's so painful watching knowing that we will never see Monk be happy for long. Any time he's happy, something horrible will happen that makes everything bad again. In this case, it was Monk acting surprisingly out-of-character in accusing the old lady of the crime, of course with the standard stuff like cutting everyone off when they try to correct him and being proven wrong shortly thereafter. After that point I was just sitting around waiting to see what excuse they come up with to make sure this character isn't recurring. She ends up moving away. Why couldn't she be recurring for a few episodes? The show is going to be over in like one and a half seasons anyway.

    Oh well, at least there are a few episodes that end on a definite high-note. Those are always good to watch.
