Monk - Season 4 Notes

"Mr. Monk and the Other Detective"  first aired July 8, 2005

Jason Alexander makes a memorable appearance as a disheveled two bit detective who has made his living taking pictures of cheating wives and has barely managed to hold on to his detective's license - but nonetheless shows up as a suddenly brilliant detective who's showing Monk up and becoming a celebrity.  Anyone could appreciate how Monk would be feeling defensive when the one point that justifies and validates his existence - his brilliance as a detective - is slipping away and he's becoming yesterday's news.  You can appreciate the self-consciousness Monk must feel of how childish he has to know he looks as he's repeatedly (but of course correctly) protesting "He's cheating."

I was particularly interested in Alexander's scene with his mother just after she's rescued.  He actually legitimately did most of the figuring out that saved her, and the recognized top authority Monk has just generously given praise and credit for his detective skills to his Mommy (who rightly considers him incompetent), which is where it really counts.  After the setup of the whole episode, it's a great moment of legitimate validation.  Yet the guy can't help himself but to specifically take credit with Mom for exactly the one thing that Monk came up with about the high tide.  It struck me particularly poignant and insightful into the human condition to see how the character basically couldn't quite accept his own achievement, and had to taint it with that lie.  He still wasn't legitimate in his own mind.  And that whole point was accomplished as an afterthought to the show, with just a sentence or two that Monk's hearing as he walks away.


"Mr. Monk Goes Home Again"  first aired July 15, 2005

This must rate as one of the best episodes of the series both on the exploration of Monk as a personality, and as one of the best crimes.  They started out with a freakish murder of an armored car driver in a supermarket parking lot, and then there is the Frankenstein candy thief.  The writers actually came up with a pretty credible explanation.

This murderer was particularly wicked, especially for being a meek looking little lab rat.  But even by his original plan, before he hit that little snag at work, what he had intended to do was to kill his wife - and 10 or 12 more random unknown people to cover it up. From the point of view of intending on generating a gratuitous body count, I'm not sure if there was anyone wickeder in the run of the series.

I wish we could have had more of brother Ambrose Monk.  John Turturro as Adrian's brother was the best supporting character and casting of the whole series in this second of two appearances. [See also "Mr. Monk and the Three Pies" from season 2.]  For being a Monk, he really had a pretty good tender romantic approach to Miss Natalie.  You could almost see him looking like a credible suitor to her.

But of course the main point of the episode was waiting for Dad, who had dropped a note saying that he'd be there at 8 PM.  Ambrose is much more excited about this than is Adrian.  They got all kinds of dramatic pathos out of the brothers each blaming themselves for Dad's abandonment, the argument over Dad's untouched study, and their chaffed emotional tender points in general.  There was naturally some comedy with squabbling brothers and such, but they've got so much fascinating directly dramatic material that you might be left wanting more laughs than they had time to get to.

Dad's note in the epilogue really makes an important cap on the Monk family dynamic.  Dad showed up two hours+ late after 30 years, while they're gone absolutely in an ambulance -  which is about the only way they would have not been there waiting for him for the next couple of days.  Rather than stick around, he left a note with two points of significance.  The "I wouldn't wait for me either" gives a pretty good clue about Dad's perspective in the family self-blame game - which is good because Jack Monk would be the proper one who should be feeling bad about the situation and blaming himself. The other significant thing was that Dad finishes the note explaining in writing that he's proud of Ambrose.  That written and signed testimonial from Dad seems like it would be almost if not quite as good a payoff for Ambrose as an actual visit.


"Mr. Monk Stays in Bed" first aired July 22, 2005

I don't know how much this was the intention of the creators, but one of the more interesting themes to me over the run of the series is basically illness or suffering as an excuse.  Using a fictional character like Monk to reflect on these issues is a lot better than picking apart a real human.  Monk was obviously clinically, medically OCD to start with, then shot through with trauma over his wife's murder.  Between clinical problems and sympathy for his suffering, one wants to cut the poor bastard a lot of slack.

But like anyone might, he tends to take every inch of slack he can get, and ask for a little more indulgence on top.  I mean, he can't really help it, right?  He tells himself and everyone else that.  Well bullshit.  Making some judgment of the internal dynamics of this fictional character, I have to say that maybe some of his behavior he can't help.  But a lot of his stuff is just ridiculously childish self indulgence.  His shut down here over the mildest bit of a flu clearly falls into that latter category by my figuring.  I can understand locking up with anxiety on a ladder from fear of heights.  But this whining about his little sniffle just makes me want to go upside his head.  His partner could have gotten goddam killed because he was laying in bed feeling sorry for himself over nothing instead of being there to back her up.  Why didn't he put his pants on and go help her catch the murderer?  This pretty clearly looks like a wouldn't rather than a couldn't.

I bet Monk would have had considerably milder and less symptoms if Stottlemeyer had just bitch slapped him every once in a while when he was acting stupid like this, and said "You'll thank me later."


"Mr. Monk Goes to the Office"  first aired July 29, 2005

There's some good comedy here and it's pretty watchable, but overall this is one of the weaker episodes of the series.  The whole basic answer to the mystery is just not well done on any level.  The villain is not set up as a character, and appears pretty much out of nowhere at the end. Plus his motivation is very poor.  You'd kill a guy out of nowhere just to set up getting to break a stock analyst's hand so he'd have to use the other one to talk on the phone, and then murder a decorator to stop her from hanging curtains?  I'm willing to bend over backwards to suspend disbelief, but this is just completely ridiculous - and doesn't even really pay off.  It isn't a clever explanation to a seemingly impossible story, or anything like that.  The entire murder mystery of this episode is just an ill-considered afterthought to generate an excuse to put Monk in an office worker situation.

Monk volunteers and insists on gratuitously going undercover to work in an office cubical not for any real detective need, but trying to get at some sense of social belonging.  He WANTS to be an office "drone."  He's going to be part of the gang at the office!  As it plays out, you can't blame the gang at all really for eventually rejecting him.  They try to include him, and overlook a pretty fair amount of his nonsense before they understandably pretty much lose respect for him.

A little bit of the idea of wanting to belong like this is understandable, but they stretch it here to the point where I for one lose sympathy for Monk.  I do not mean this as an artistic criticism of the show.  It's well done and highlights nicely one of the underlying dynamics of the Monk character.  It's perfectly credible of the character, but underscores a part of him that's just pathetic and childish - and unprofessional.  He's WAY more concerned with being part of the gang than in solving two murders.  The unprofessionalism of this is underscored right at the end when they bust the culprit.  Monk has the guy on the floor at gunpoint - and then insists on Natalie calling the gang to come back from lunch to see it before calling the cops.  The childish self-absorption of being that set on the need to impress these inconsequential office drones even over catching a murderer is one of those not infrequent moments in the series when I just want to go upside his head.


"Mr. Monk Gets Drunk"  first aired August 5, 2005

Comedy, mystery and character relationships are all very well served here.  Monk's fragile ego is legitimately tested in a manner that would try the confidence of a normal person who didn't have his issues.  He meets this very colorful and memorable boar, or thinks he does - though a half dozen other people who were right there interacting have no knowledge of such a person.  Natalie goes to some effort to get at a camera, to find that the guy he remembers is simply not in the picture he took.

Besides how it tests Monk's confidence in his own sanity, the situation also nicely tests the trust between him and Natalie.  There's a big point before things get strange about how as partners they have to believe and trust the other's words.  Yet Natalie - who never saw the missing guy - finds herself needing to believe against all evidence (and despite his obvious clinical issues) that the boss hasn't just gone round the bend and hallucinated this character.  Basically, she's in a situation where she can't really believe, but carefully and loyally trusts the boss and backs him up as if she does.

There's only one little and really unnecessary thing here that strains the relatively reasonable believability of the episode.  Well really, there's two things.  The specific thing would be the eventual explanation for that funny aftertaste that Natalie keeps talking about in the new wine.  It's a really good comedic payoff, but at the expense of a particularly non-credible move.  Surely they would have come up with a better and less grotesque way of getting rid of the guy - though the particular physical grotesqueness does compliment the highly comedic point earlier of Monk having to watch some particularly unappealing people stomping the grapes with their bare feet.

On reflection though, the thing that really stretches credulity is Sylvia the inn keeper and proprietor of this winery/bed and breakfast where Adrian and Trudy had their honeymoon.  She's obviously known Adrian for years, and explains some rather detailed history with him to Natalie early on.  How could it even be possible for anyone who knew Adrian Monk like that to think that they could get by Monk like this?  Think specifically of the story she tells Natalie about Monk ruining their big mystery weekend just the year before.


"Mr. Monk and Mrs. Monk" first aired August 12, 2005

This is one of the very best episodes of the series.  The premise is that Natalie discovers that Monk's beloved Trudy is apparently NOT dead, but has faked her own death.  Obviously this is going to be a setup for some excellent and involved development and insight into the Monk character.  Considering how much this idea of Trudy being alive completely jerks the rug out from under his whole worldview, he actually handles this situation quite well.

But what really makes the episode is how it brings out the relationships between Monk and his people.  Note Stottlemeyer's helpless frustration at not being able to help or protect Monk, for one thing.

Also, this is overall one of the most plausible episodes of the series in terms of that these things could reasonably happen, and in terms of the motivations of the characters.  Unlike some episodes, the ultimate explanation is quite sensible and believable.  Yes, it makes sense that these people would do these things for the reasons they're shown to be doing them.

One thing, this episode had minimal comedy, but that's not really a shortcoming.  They were just too busy with serious Monk character drama to set up a lot of funny stuff.  However, they got some particularly good humor in the middle of this when Monk goes to the cemetary to see Trudy.  His babbling to the stranger at her husband's grave as he's leaving is something of a reflection of his relief, having just resolved graveside in his own mind that Trudy really was dead and that his understanding of the world was not upside down. 

This was also one of the fairly rare times when the strictly and explicitly empirical Monk firmly decides on a belief on basically a basis of faith.  "That hurt feeling is never wrong" was his explanation of how he knew standing at her grave that she was still dead.  This was not an intuition based on vague facts, as his detecting usually and naturally starts, ie something's wrong with this story.  He had absolutely NO basis for his confident decision at that point except that "hurt feeling."

"Mr. Monk Goes to a Wedding" first aired August 19, 2005

The wedding in question is Natalie's brother, so we're dropped into the middle of her strained family situation.  It's pretty excellent at giving background and insight, filling out the Natalie Teager character.  Also, this is one of the more plausible episodes, with minimal amounts of wildly improbable events.  The motivation of the villain is believable.  Mostly only the convenient co-incidence of Lt. Disher's experience with the villain strains credulity. 

It might not jump out at you watching it, but this episode has very little actually to do with Adrian Monk.  He's mostly just a little comic relief here.  He finds a couple of little clues, but they don't really amount to much.  Note that there is no "here's what happened" segment, because Adrian Monk doesn't solve the case, Stottlemeyer does.

Also, it's a bit of an afterthought but nonetheless about the sexiest moment for the totally hot Natalie Teager in the whole series right at the end when she's standing there in her fancy wedding clothes with her high heel on this bitch's throat.  This scene made me feel all tingly.


"Mr. Monk and Little Monk"  first aired August 26, 2005

Poignancy fills the air when the girl Monk liked in eighth grade shows up now 30 years later needing his help to solve a mystery - as she did in junior high.  Sherry is a very nice girl who pretty much understood and appreciated him then and now.  But it's easy enough to appreciate how that almost but doesn't quite add up to being his girlfriend.  Even without Monk's issues, any guy who was ever in eighth grade could appreciate him buying the Led Zeppelin "Stairway Up to Heaven" album when he doesn't have a stereo to even play it on because she was wearing their t-shirt.

This episode briefly provides an interesting way of addressing one important little nagging Monk question.  In a season 2 episode, his shrink directly asks Monk about his sex life with Trudy, and couldn't get anything out of him except show tunes and talk about holding hands.  That's already way much for this guy who has to have a wipe after the simplest routine handshake.  It seems near impossible to imagine him purposely exchanging bodily fluids even with his beloved Trudy.  The question seems to be answered here directly - the only time I've noticed in the series, when he first sees Sherry again and blurts out to her in a completely inappropriate but understandable bit of defensive offense "Me and Trudy went all the way."

The "here's what happened" segment was an interesting setup, cutting between the current case and the eighth grade situation with the missing bake sale money.  These segments are generally narrated by Monk against a black and white re-enactment filling out the missing details.  The eighth grade segment, however, is in full glorious 1972 color, because it's obviously so much more real to him than basically anything in life now. Also, note how Sherry inadvertently starts his obsession with the wipes.


"Mr. Monk and the Secret Santa"  first aired December 2, 2005

This Christmas episode worked out beautiful on multiple levels.  The actual murder mystery is clever and pretty realistic.  It made good Stottlemeyer material, as the cop who got killed died from a poisoned bottle of port that came in with his name on it and that he had re-gifted as a secret Santa present.  Heck, Stottlemeyer and Disher even did some pretty fair singing.  Plus, Stottlemeyer got a good grace note at the end with his intervention and Christmas release of the original suspect.

They got a particularly good long comedy scene with Monk playing department store Santa so he could talk to that suspect's little girl.  Bunches of germy little kids sitting on his lap, wanting to hug and kiss Santa - what a nightmare.  Best of all, inevitably there was a nice little girl named Trudy, to whom he entirely inappropriately has to tell the story about his Trudy being blown up by a car bomb.  That moment with the girl trying to comfort Santa in theory is maybe sad and poignant, but I don't know very many moments in the series where I have laughed harder.

The kicker though is the introduction of The Package.  Monk shows up at Natalie's with presents for her and the girl - and carrying the last Christmas present Trudy had left under the tree for him just before she died which he still has no intention of opening after something like eight years.  In the last seconds of the show, he's on the sidewalk dancing in the rare San Francisco snow with this unopened package - as close as he could get to celebrating Christmas with Trudy.  Some five or so years later in the last episode of the series, he's going to find that the gift is a video with a final message from Trudy - and the answer to her murder that he's been so desperate and helpless to solve.


"Mr. Monk Goes to a Fashion Show"  first aired January 13, 2006

The actual murder mystery at the fashion show is only so-so, though Malcolm McDowell definitely sells his part as an arrogant fashion designer. 

What really makes the show is the whole idea of Inspector 8.  Monk is a huge fan of this person he's never met.  She was the recipient of the only fan letter he ever wrote, as she is the only inspector whose shirts he'll buy.  He knows the work of all the shirt inspectors - and knows that she's got some terrible trouble when he finds that she's been approving torn up, badly made shirts.  This leads to tracking her down and actually meeting her at the factory, which leads to the fashion show murders. 

The epilogue nicely underscores Monk's frequent lack of empathy, despite the obvious appearance of such - as was underscored in the epilogue.  He was never really concerned with Inspector 8's welfare, but had gotten involved in this whole mess because he wanted her back up to snuff inspecting shirts.  He cared not a whit about her tearful reunion with her son who had been unjustly imprisoned for a year, cause he's down to just five shirts and shouldn't she get back to work this afternoon?


"Mr. Monk Bumps His Head"  first aired January 20, 2006

As you might guess from the title, they're playing the basic amnesia gimmick.  It's somewhat poignant that the setup of getting that bump on the head is that he's made himself vulnerable chasing a lead about Trudy.  This leads to him waking up not knowing who he is in some small town in Wyoming.  The actual murder mystery isn't very exotic, but it is reasonably realistic.  Plus, they did an extra good job investing empathy with the victim in her one scene.

Laurie Metcalf really makes this episode as the local weirdo who claims Monk as her husband.  Actually, Monk tends to respond fairly well to domineering females.  Their bedroom scene is particularly entertaining. Of course, about that point, he remembers Trudy when he doesn't remember anything else. 

In retrospect, in makes good sense and a fair statement on the character that he just naturally knew his detective skills even when he couldn't remember his own name. 


"Mr. Monk and the Captain's Marriage"  first aired January 27, 2006

I'm not sure if this is the very most memorable episode, but it's got a lot going for it.  For one thing, it holds up pretty well logically and believably.  The answer to the mystery was unusual, but plausible and sensible.  This show holds together tighter than a lot of them.

It's also a very good Stottlemeyer character episode.  Watching Stottlemeyer flail around trying to figure out what he should even be trying to do for his marriage is very effective dramatically.  Plus, they followed it all the way out with the divorce papers, and the epilogue as he's moving out of his house. 

On the bad side, Monk himself wasn't very interesting here.  His reaction to the mouse was basically by rote, and didn't display any particularly interesting spark of creativity.  Plus, Monk eventually figured out the why, but the homeless dude witness solved the case and was the evidence.  "HE did it." 


"Mr. Monk and the Big Reward"  first aired February 3, 2006

Overall, this rates as a middling episode in the series, which means that it's highly entertaining watching but doesn't really have much that you'll still be thinking about days later.  There's no real drama or pathos, nor any special insight into the Monk character or the human condition or anything.  On the other hand, it's reasonably close to believable, and has lots of good comedy.  The cleaning lady with a longstanding (and perfectly understandable) grudge against Monk was delicious, and even more so the ending when she finally cleans under the damned table to satisfy Monk.

What really makes the episode though is the three wannabe detectives chasing Monk throughout the episode.  They're caricatures and not real characters by any stretch - but they're really funny caricatures.  I particularly enjoyed the old Scotland Yard detective.


"Mr. Monk and the Astronaut"  first aired March 3, 2006

This has to be considered one of the best episodes of the series.  It works with drama and pathos, beautiful comedy (especially with the white trash neighbor), and most of all character development and examination for the Monk character. 

I say this despite it having two of the more preposterous angles of the series.  This was one of those episodes where they basically started with an impossible crime and then worked backwards hoping for, as series creator Andrew Breckman put it about the series generally, an "at least somewhat believable" explanation.  Look for Disher's wonderfully preposterous attempt at a "Here's what happened..." sequence.  But the actual answer they came up with was only marginally less ridiculous. Then there was the climactic sequence in which Monk on foot out runs and gets in front of a fighter jet taxiing down the runway.  This was just several steps past being purely physically not possible.

Yet I didn't really care watching it, and took those things in stride as needful poetic story elements.  Basically this is because those improbabilities were leveraged into the service of great things all around in comedy, drama, character development and a little bit of philosophy.  This totally alpha male astronaut versus Adrian Monk was a perfect setup for a look at Monk's manhood issues. 

As he explains to his shrink, he doesn't feel like any kind of man at all against this astronaut.  He's afraid of everything, but this astronaut isn't afraid of anything.  Ah, says the shrink, if he's guilty, I know one thing he's afraid of:  YOU.  Actually, from watching the episode, I don't know that the guy was afraid of Monk.  But he most certainly should have been.

Steve the astronaut was a beautiful character possessed of brains, rugged good looks, heroic accomplishments - and fatal hubris.  There was a previously insignificant but now critical misunderstanding by the world.  This astronaut was legitimately smart and brave and accomplished, and he knew how to act like an at least slightly humble hero.  Listen to the perfect little spiel about bravery and fear he gives to the school kids.  Very convincing. 

But personal power and glory is his true motivation, not some broad good of mankind.  Plus, he was pretty good at faking it, but didn't have much human empathy or moral compunctions. Then again, even as an outside viewer I found it hard to feel bad about him killing this worthless whore under these circumstances.  In truth, I would tend to think that she deserved to be smacked around some.  Is this slut's life worth costing me a US Senate seat?  I saw no redeeming characteristics.  Except that I know that murder is wrong, I would not be inclined to fault the guy for killing her.  Perhaps I lack human empathy.

You can't really fault the guy for thinking that Monk was weak. Even if he was pretty bright, he was a coward, and you could count on it that he would flinch in the clinch.  He all but confesses to Monk as a gesture of his contempt.  But I mean, look at Monk being driven out of that classroom moments before by kids with harmless little laser pointers.  What was the astronaut supposed to think?

Before they ran him off with the lasers that the astronaut had given them, Monk actually managed to mumble out a pretty important point.  As a cop or a detective, he made mistakes.  But then you back up and try something else till you get the answer.  A criminal, a murderer may be pretty smart and brave, but he has to be right 100% of the time.  One little mistake or miscalculation, and you're done.  That's a very good point.

Also, the astronaut (understandably) misunderestimated Adrian Monk.  Adrian Monk is often and in the most critical types of situations a very brave individual.  He's clinically phobic and has lots of silly little fears of germs and milk and animals.  He'll tend to react badly to pain, even of getting a routine shot.  But he's really not that afraid of death.  He's got at least a fair hint of a death wish about him a lot of the time anyway.  Note that in his lists and even in practice in the eventual series finale, he's more afraid of vomiting than of dying.  Hey, that'd just be reuniting him with his Trudy.

But beyond anything like that, knowing the truth makes Monk brave.  If he is certain that you're a murderer, repeatedly he will proclaim his knowledge to you and will not be physically intimidated from doing so and tell you that you're going down.  The point of the otherwise preposterous scene of Monk running down the plane was to emphatically disprove the pilot's statement in that hallway.  The laser pointers in the classroom broke Monk, but in the face of a murderer about to escape he was not intimidated by laser pointers on actual fricking police rifles.  He did not flinch or back down from a hero alpha male astronaut in a flipping fighter jet, knowing that he was a murderer and how to prove it.  Knowing the truth tends to give Monk a weird feeling of invincibility.  When it counts, he's all man.

Also, the astronaut got a very nice little grace note, maybe a three second shot.  As he's being arrested, they walk him by Monk standing on the runway.  He very carefully and consciously gives Monk a look of respect and a nod of acknowledgement.  He's got enough of his own code to want to give Monk the man the props that he has just earned.  He beat him with valor, and it was appreciated.  That ending in particular makes it hard to finally think of the astronaut as really a villain.  Or at least he was a villain with character.


"Mr. Monk Goes to the Dentist"  first aired March 10, 2006

The motivation of the dentist here was somewhat questionable, but the rest of this was quite good.  Monk is famously afraid of pretty much everything, but the hyper fear of dentists is one of his more easily relatable fears.  Nearly anyone can relate to being afraid of the dentist putting needles and drills into your mouth.  Then you add in that it's an evil dentist intending to torture you with his tools.  You're fairly well incapacitated and in a drugged semi-consciousness.  You can see how that's totally understandably one of the ultimate Monk nightmares.  Plus, we get to hear Monk narrate the "Here's what happened..." segment through that drugged stupor.  And that dentist seemed like such a nice guy. 

His almost-torture scene played out as some measure of terror, though that's a little muted by the basic nature of the series.  Viewers know going in that they're not going to really hurt him.  This isn't Jack Bauer and 24.  But mixing the drugged effect with the helplessness of being strapped in that chair with the big and still creepily cheerful dentist bearing down on you, that's still plenty scary.  Yet it plays as fairly effective comedy.  Note how as he realized that he's being drugged with a rag full of chloroform, he still can't help but dab that rag at his lip to get at the non-existent spot.  Note also how the extremity of his neuroses was what gave him the fight through the drugs that delayed the advent of the torture.  It was not fear of pain, but fear of germs that alarmed him enough to physically resist through the stupor.

Also, the episode was probably one of the couple of best Disher episodes of the series.  He mostly plays comic relief as the idiot, and mostly doesn't get taken seriously as a person in the station or as a character on the show.  This episode, however, is very effective at giving him real human motivation.  He's basically an easygoing guy, and of necessity has a thick skin and a sense of humor about himself.  But he hits the wall here with how much disrespect he's willing to take.  After four years of being teased and sometimes mocked, this little break comes as well set up dramatic material. 

The Randy Disher Project in particular comes off as very effective pathos- or you could simply say that it was pathetic.  In theory, the whole situation is laughable and comedic.  But when Disher declares that he still believes in that high school rock star dream, the moment and the whole situation became real and sad enough to overwhelm the laughs.  That's good drama.  Plus, it was very nice how Disher fairly effectively and specifically vented his frustrations in his song.  His music video in the epilogue, distanced by being "art" was the best direct telling off of the boss he was ever going to do.  But it was a pretty good telling off - and presented by Disher impersonally, as if it didn't occur to him that the boss would take it as anything but a song.  Disher basically got his best digs in accidentally.


"Mr. Monk Gets Jury Duty"  first aired March 17, 2006

As he says here repeatedly, Monk is not a team player.  Thus, the setup is perfect.  Monk is of course brilliant at figuring out crimes, but not at working with others.  Imagine the possibilities for comic exasperation in being locked in a room arguing a criminal case with Monk all day long.  But then he finds the whole other case under the window and has to solve it without being able to leave the room or use a phone.  Very nice - plus, of necessity he a little bit figures out how to work with his fellow jurors.

The bad side would be that the evil juror's scheme is pretty farfetched.  On the other hand, you could see it as a desperate passion play, and a Bonnie and Clyde fantasy.  It's not entirely improbable that some crazy chick in love would TRY something this nuts.





DENOUEMENT  This is the climax of the series.  You shouldn't look at this page until you've seen it.
