    • Natalie: Uh-oh.
      Monk: What is it?
      Natalie: It's from your HMO.
      Monk: Oh. Don't open that.
      Natalie: It says "important."
      Monk: All the more reason--just throw it out.
      Natalie: Maybe it's good news.
      Monk: Yeah, good news from my HMO. What do you think--I won a free colonscopy?

    • Natalie: I think you're being ridiculous.
      Monk: Yeah, ridiculous like a fox.

    • Natalie: I know, I know you're not a big fan of Harold Krenshaw's.
      Monk: I hate him. He can go to hell.
      Natalie: Yeah, I understand, but besides him, besides Harold who can go to hell, how was the session?
      Monk: Awful.

    • Disher: Could be a serial killer. He's killing people according to their phobias. This guy was afraid of heights so he pushed him off the roof.
      Monk: Augie wasn't afraid of heights. He was afraid of spiders.
      Disher: That's different. It's killing people using the opposite of their phobias. The Opposite Killer.
      Stottlemeyer: So you're saying the opposite of a spider is a tall building?
      Disher: What do you think the opposite of a spider is?
      Stottlemeyer: I have no idea, but it's not a tall building.
      Disher: Hmm, tell that to the Opposite Killer.
      Natalie: Are you crying?
      Stottlemeyer: No, I have allergies.

    • Disher: It's him--the Opposite Killer. That's his MO.
      Stottlemeyer: There is no Opposite Killer. If there were, you would have been killed by a falling rocket scientist years ago.

    • Harold: We need your strength, Neven. Your guidance. You're the beacon. you're the light that will see us through our darkest hour.
      Rhonda: So, Harold, how is it up there in Neven's butt? You lonely? Getting scared of the dark?

    • Harold: Dr. Bell, I.. I don't know what to feel. Tell me what to feel.
      Dr. Bell: I think we should all feel confused.
      Harold: Confused--I can do that.

    • (eliminating murder suspects)
      Natalie: Who else was in the group?
      Monk: There's Harold. Could it be Harold?
      Natalie: I don't think so.
      Monk: You're right. God would never do that. It would make me too happy.

    • Monk: We have to find a phone and call the police.
      Harold: There's not enough time. It takes the police four minutes and 20 seconds to get here. Don't ask.
