This episode was great fun. Three bums come to Monk's home to hire him. Natalie (bless her heart) pushes Monk to investigate. The Captain
ends up in a monastery and Monk figures out another crime. The mystery
is good, it was impossible to guess in advance who did it. I suspected the Monk who greets the Captain. I love the Captain , he is handsome and sexy and I was really happy that this episode is about him. I always like the episodes with a lot of Leland. Ted Levin is an extraordinary actor and watching him in this episode is really moving. Tony Shalhoub is better than ever and his going to the monastery to find his friend makes for some of the funniest scenes ever not to forget the Christmas dinner with the bums which was hilarious!
