  • "Ohhhh, suck it up!"

    Very nice written... Monk having to deal with Sharona's fear... he's heartless in the beginning, but he realises that he was an @ss to her and really tries to make it up to her... okay, so... he fails merciless, but he tried!

    The fight between Monk and Sharona really made this ep a fun episode!
    Sure, she got really tired of him... a lot, but she was angry now, she was hurt and didn't even try to hide it! Spoilers!

    So, Sharona and Adrian get to deal with a murder where an elephant is the biggest key, one problem... Sharona is scared to death for elephants!
    She hides away and when Monk finds her and asks her what's wrong... he laughs at her and tells her to 'suck it up'.
    Sharona, of course, flips and does everything to make him feel miserable. She doesn't give him his wipes, drinks from his water and coughs in his face, and if he dares to even just give her a puppy face look, she tells him to... suck it up.

    Finally he understands that his reaction to her fear of elephants was wrong, and he arranges a meeting for her, with the elephant, and Edgar, the elephant trainer.
    Adrian wants to show Sharona that there is nothing to be scared of... but something goes wrong... The elephant sqaushes Edgar's head... like a water melon... right before Sharona's eyes... oops.
