Season 8 Episode 10

Mr. Monk and Sharona

Aired Friday 9:00 PM Oct 23, 2009 on USA



  • Trivia

    • When Monk, Natalie, and Sharona go to the country club and meet Mr. and Mrs. Walsh on the golf course there is a burr on Mrs. Walsh's sun visor. When the camera cuts back to her the burr is gone.

    • During Monk's "Here's What Happened" in the closet, we see Jack and Sharona's uncle walking down the hill with the golf cart behind them. A few seconds later we see no golf cart and just two golf bags.

    • It's funny that Natalie should find out that Monk paid Sharona $20 a week more than he pays her since a big plot point of "Mr. Monk vs. The Cobra" is that Monk was paying Natalie the exact same amount as he paid Sharona, and Natalie ended up getting a raise in the end.

  • Quotes

    • Sharona: Hello, Adrian.
      Monk: What year is this?

    • Sharona: Umm... I am still in Jersey, and I'm nursing again.
      Monk: Really?
      Sharona: Mm-hmm.
      Monk: But isn't Benjy like 17?
      Sharona: No... I'm working as a nurse.
      Monk: Oh, well, that's different.

    • Monk: Hey.
      Sharona: Mm.
      Monk: You still got it.
      Sharona: It's like riding a bike.
      Monk: Oh, man.
      Sharona: A very clean, very unusual, very sad bike.

    • Monk: I got this myself. Okay, she got me the wipe. It's just a wipe. I mean, come on. There's nothing going on. Sometimes a wipe is just a wipe. I'm talking too much. Am I still taking now? God, I'm still talking.

    • Natalie: You paid her $20 a week more than me.
      Monk: She had a kid.
      Natalie: I have a kid!
      Monk: Her kid ate more.

    • Sharona: Do you mind if she calls you Adrian?
      Monk: Of course not. Why would I mind?
      Natalie: Okay. Adrian.
      Monk: Yeah, see I don't like it either.
      Natalie: Me either.

    • Monk: She didn't mean anything. Nobody means anything.
      Sharona: "Nobody means anything." What does that mean?
      Monk: Doesn't mean anything.

    • Stottlemeyer: I love Natalie. And I love Sharona, too. They're wonderful women. You got lucky twice. But together they're like bourbon and vodka. I love them both, but I can't have them at the same meal because they don't mix. These women are so different, Monk. They're going to tear you apart like a piece of saltwater taffy.
      Monk: I know, I've been a piece of taffy all day. Natalie's been acting like Mary, Queen of Scots. She wants more money. I mean, she won't lay down in the dirt when I ask her. I'm losing her.

    • Sharona: Well, I don't believe it. You're not perfect. You could be wrong.
      Monk: Maybe, but I'm not.

    • Natalie: How about this? It's the ninth floor, right? Let's take the elevator up to four and then walk up five flights.
      Monk: Yeah, that sounds fair.
      Sharona: Or we take the elevator up to level five and walk four flights.
      Monk: Can't argue with that.
      Sharona: You treat him like a child.
      Natalie: He's not a child.
      Sharona: I did not say he's a child. I said you're treating him like a child.
      Natalie: Oh, I'm being supportive.
      Sharona: No, you're not being supportive. You're enabling him.
      Monk: Okay, here's what we gonna do and take it up to 18 and walk down 9 flights. That way everybody's miserable.

    • Natalie: Well, he can't go too far. he can't sleep without his Trudy pillow.
      Sharona: Or that special red toothbrush.
      Natalie: Or his little flossing kit.
      Sharona: Or the sound machine with that foghorn noise.
      Natalie: Actually, that one broke. And they discontinued the model.
      Sharona: Really? What did you do?
      Natalie: I went out and bought an actual foghorn and made my own tape. I'm not kidding. I have an actual foghorn sitting in my garage.

    • Monk: (at Trudy's grave) You found me.
      Natalie: Have you been here all day?
      Monk: I've been here for 12 years.

    • Natalie: Let's go home. We'll make you dinner.
      Sharona: Is Tuesday still chicken pot pie?
      Monk: Why? What have you heard?
      Sharona: Of course it is. I don't even know why I asked.
