  • Trivia

    • When the Colonel and his daughter are taking their seats next to Monk, a shot from Monk's left shows the woman and the Colonel settling in their seats. The camera angle briefly changes to the right, in which the woman can be seen sitting again, and immediately afterward switches back to the left, showing the woman already settled in her seat talking to her father.

    • The actual mailing address for UC Berkeley's Theater & Dance department is 101 Dwinelle Annex, Berkeley, CA 94720. However, the undergraduate admission letter would not have come from the department. It would have come from the Admissions office for the entire campus.

    • When Natalie walks into the police station, she puts her purse down on the table twice.

    • At the newspaper office, while the critic is paying for his delivered food, Natalie's arms instantly go from by her side to folded in front of her.

  • Quotes

    • Callie: This is probably the best night of my life. I could die right now. I really could.
      Hannigan: Funny you should say that.

    • Monk: I think this is my armrest, and that one's yours.
      Natalie: Mr. Monk, we're supposed to share.
      Monk: Where are we, Russia now?

    • Natalie: Why don't you just use the men's room like everyone else?
      Monk: I wish you could hear yourself sometimes.

    • Stottlemeyer: Where the hell's Randy?
      Natalie: Oh, I sent him out to get a newspaper.
      Stottlemeyer: You? You, you sent Randy out. Well, who are you, the new police commissioner?
      Natalie: The morning edition comes out at midnight. They're gonna review Julie's play.
      Stottlemeyer: For the love of god, he's a police lieutenant, not a bellhop. Maybe he is.

    • Disher: We, uh, found a date book in her apartment. She referred to a man by initial--J. Does that mean anything?
      Miranda: Maybe his name began with a J?
      Stottlemeyer: Did you just write that down?
      Randy: I put a question mark after it.

    • Monk: You've become obsessed with this review.
      Natalie: Look who's talking.
      Monk: That's true. Okay, I get obsessed too, but I can handle it. I've had years of experience.

    • Monk: What's this?
      Natalie: A check for $300. I'm hiring you, Mr. Monk. I need your help. I can't do it myself.
      Monk: Oh, this check's no good.
      Natalie: That's sweet of you to say, but...
      Monk: No, I mean it's literally no good. You can't cover this.
      Natalie: Sure I can. I just deposited my paycheck on Wednesday.
      Monk: Right. But I happen to know that that check is going to bounce. So this check is pretty much worthless.
      Natalie: You wrote me a bad check? How could you do that?
      Monk: I might ask you the same question.
      Natalie: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Your check was bad first.
      Monk: Natalie, there's no right and wrong here. It's all tangled up. One check, another check. It's like the chicken and the egg.
      Natalie: No, it's not. There... there's no egg here. there's no egg. This is all chicken.

    • Monk: All right. all right. I'll take a look. You can just owe me the money.
      Natalie: You owe me the money.
      Monk: Why don't we just call it even?
      Natalie: How is that even?
      Monk: Oh... If I have to explain that to you, I'm probably paying you too much.
      Natalie: You're not paying me at all.
