Monk: Mr. Monk and the Class Reunion

506. Mr. Monk and the Class Reunion

Aired August 11, 2006

When Monk and Natalie attend his 25th college reunion, Monk gets the feeling the husband of Trudy's old roommate is up to something.

Quote from Lieutenant Disher

Lieutenant Disher: Captain? I tracked down Kalimarakis. I don't think he's our guy. Number one, it turns out he was allowed to join the Olympic swim team as an alternate. He, uh, got a waiver.
Captain Stottlemeyer: So there's no motive.
Lieutenant Disher: Right. Number two, he's dead. He died in 1995. And number three, he moved to Europe in the late '80s. So there's no record of him ever returning-
Captain Stottlemeyer: Randy. Randy, excuse me. I'm sorry to interrupt you but could you read number two again?
Lieutenant Disher: Okeydoke. He's dead.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Right. See, I probably would have stopped reading after number two. In fact, I would have read number two first.
Lieutenant Disher: You would have switched, 'em?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Yeah. But that's just me. And probably every other adult on the planet Earth.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: You had a girlfriend with short red hair.
Todd: Belinda.
Adrian Monk: Yeah.
Todd: Yeah, yeah. She and I, we got married. But, uh, she passed away.
Adrian Monk: Oh, my wife died too. Trudy Ellison. Yeah.
Todd: It's tough, huh? But you just have to move on.
Adrian Monk: No, we can't move on. We can try, but we'll never get past it. It's unrelenting. All we can do is live out our days alone in hopeless, quiet desperation.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: Natalie, I think I've seen enough. Let's just go.
Natalie: No, I'm not gonna let you go. You've been looking so forward to this.
Adrian Monk: I don't know what I was thinking. These people weren't my friends. Okay? They don't even remember me. The truth is, I was invisible. It was Trudy they loved. I was always just the guy with Trudy. Just like you're the girl with me.
Natalie: Mr. Monk, why is your name on the spit shield?
Adrian Monk: Oh, when I was here, there was nothing protecting the food.
Natalie: So you donated all of these? That is so generous of you.
Adrian Monk: Well, actually, it was more of a lawsuit. Took up a lot of my spare time.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Lieutenant Disher: Hey, Monk. How's memory lane?
Adrian Monk: Oh, pretty awful. Thanks for asking.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: The last time I saw you was Mischief Night. You and your friends were throwing toilet paper everywhere, right?
Todd: Mischief Night. That's right.
Adrian Monk: Right.
Todd: I don't remember you.
Adrian Monk: I wasn't with you. I was following you. I was cleaning up.
Todd: Was that you?

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. I can't believe it. He's still here. Hello, old friend. Remember me? Oh, I knew we'd meet again. It is our destiny. [puts hand on freezer] Natalie, put your hand right there. Do you feel that?
Natalie: No.
Adrian Monk: He's afraid. Step back. Step back. I'm going in. I'm gonna need a spatula, a pan and a Bible.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: Just some water.
Waiter: Ice?
Adrian Monk: Ten.
Waiter: Ten what?
Adrian Monk: Cubes.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Natalie: Mr. Monk, come on. Let's have some fun. You said you were gonna show me your dorm room.
Adrian Monk: All right. It's right here. This is it. Old 303. Tie on the doorknob. My roommate and I did the same thing. It's a code.
Natalie: Yeah, I think I might know about that.
Adrian Monk: Yeah. It means don't come in, I'm reorganizing my closet.
Natalie: Your closet?
Adrian Monk: Yeah, my roommate freshman year, Greg. He reorganized his closet, four or five times a week.
Natalie: Uh-huh. And did his girlfriend ever come over to help?
Adrian Monk: Oh, yeah. All the time. They were real neat freaks. I used to tease him about it. "Neat freak."

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Captain Stottlemeyer: Folks! Excuse me. Could you kill the music? Thank you. Sorry to interrupt your dinner.
This will just take a minute. My name's Captain Leland Stottlemeyer. I'm with the San Francisco Police Department. And we're working on a homicide investigation and we could use your help. As you may know, a woman was killed on Friday night. Her name was Katherine Rutherford. She worked as a nurse at the university clinic. Now, we have reason to believe that someone in your class - possibly somebody in this room - might be involved. We're looking for information. If anyone knows anyone who might have had a grudge against Mrs. Rutherford either now or in the past or someone who might be missing their reunion lapel pin... The alumni reunion...
[The crowd boos when a photograph of a young Stottlemeyer in uniform at a campus No Nukes protest appears on the slideshow]
Captain Stottlemeyer: All right. Hey, hey, hey. Settle down. Settle down, everybody. This is completely out of context. You can't tell the whole story from one photograph.
[The next slide shows Stottlemeyer with a protester in a head lock]
Captain Stottlemeyer: You didn't have a permit.
Man: [o.s.] Yes, we did.
Captain Stottlemeyer: It expired at noon.
[The next photograph shows Stottlemeyer dragging a protester away while pointing to the clock tower, which shows the time is just after twelve]
Man: [o.s.] It's 12:06!
Captain Stottlemeyer: Like I said, it expired at noon.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Lieutenant Disher: It looks like an accident. Her name's Katherine Rutherford, lives here on the third floor. Patrol officers called us in just to make sure.
Captain Stottlemeyer: What are those?
Lieutenant Disher: Beads. She was wearing a necklace, which broke. She slips on the beads, breaks her neck.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Lot of gravity in these stairwells.
Lieutenant Disher: Yes, sir.
Captain Stottlemeyer: I just used the elevator. Why didn't she? Was it broken?
Lieutenant Disher: Uh...
Captain Stottlemeyer: If you don't know, just say so.
Lieutenant Disher: I don't know.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Hey are there any beads down there?
Uniform Cop: No, sir.
Captain Stottlemeyer: If she slipped on the beads, why didn't any of 'em roll away?
Lieutenant Disher: Beads, beads, beads, beads...
Captain Stottlemeyer: You don't know. Randy something's wrong here. [picks up necklace string] This is wrong. Lift up her head. It doesn't fit. It's too small. Okay, we're changing gears. Lock down this stairwell from the basement to the roof. Call the watch commander. This is now a homicide investigation.

Quote from Natalie

Adrian Monk: Is it straight? I can't get it straight.
Natalie: Why don't you just stand at a slight angle?

Quote from Adrian Monk

Dianne Brooks: Well, you know, I don't think I've seen you since, well, since the memorial service, I guess, right? How are you doing? Are you-- Are you dating?
Adrian Monk: No. N- No. No, no, no. No. No. N- N- No.
Dianne Brooks: Well, maybe you'll meet someone here.
Adrian Monk: No, I don't think-- Nah, no.
Dianne Brooks: Well, you never know.
Adrian Monk: Yeah- Yeah, you do.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Captain Stottlemeyer: There you are.
Natalie: Captain, what are you doing here?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Looking for you. I was about to give up, then I heard some clowns downstairs talking about a guy up here defrosting a refrigerator. Who's Captain Cool?
Man #1: Captain Cool lives.
Man #2: The return of Captain Cool. The Iceman Cometh back.
Adrian Monk: Might be me.

Quote from Adrian Monk

[flashback:]
Younger Trudy: Excuse me. Hello. I can't find a book. This is not the Dewey Decimal System that I know and love. Do you work here?
Younger Adrian: Yes, I- Yes, I do. Uh, here's the thing. We're reorganizing. And we're- We're moving all the stacks upstairs. What are you looking for?
Younger Trudy: This is a long shot. Trevor Rosenthal's biography of Alexander Pope. Volume two.
[Monk walks over to an unorganized pile of books and returns with the biography]
Younger Trudy: How did you do that?
Younger Adrian: I saw it last week.
Younger Trudy: And you remembered?
Younger Adrian: If I see something once, I never forget it.
Younger Trudy: That sounds pretty awful. My bad memory is my salvation.
Younger Adrian:"Thus let me live, unseen, unknown. Thus unlamented, let me die..."
Younger Trudy: "Steal from the world and not a stone tell where I lie." You know Alexander Pope. So you never forget anything? For example, you're never gonna forget this? Me, us talking right now?

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: And that's how I got her number.
Natalie: Wait, you mean when he wrote it on your back, you could feel it? You could do that?
Adrian Monk: I have very sensitive skin.
Natalie: That's like a superpower. Like a really weird, not very useful superpower.
Adrian Monk: It took me three weeks to call her. It was the bravest thing I ever did. She was already dating that other guy, Drew.
Natalie: Yeah, but she chose you. Never forget that. She chose you.
Adrian Monk: Yeah, but I don't know why. I mean, he was just written up in Time magazine last year. He's a famous heart surgeon. He's rich, he's happy. What was she thinking?
Natalie: Mr. Monk, she knew exactly what she was doing.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Kyle Brooks: Come on, it'll cheer us up. Let's play. Everybody's playing. Natalie, Adrian, come on. A little bit of touch football?
Adrian Monk: Here's- Here's the thing. I'm not a big football person. And the touching, that doesn't really help matters.

Quote from Lieutenant Disher

Lieutenant Disher: I'm in too. Let's go. Let's do it.Uh, let's make the end zones that tree to the walkway. We'll be shirts.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Okay, Randy. Randy, you stay and play football if you want to. I'm gonna go work on this little homicide investigation.
Lieutenant Disher: I gotta go.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Natalie: Mr. Monk, what's going on?
Adrian Monk: Okay, I have a theory. It's completely crazy, but it would explain everything. Kyle and Dianne moved recently. At some point, Kyle must have found some of her old papers - personal papers - including the suicide note she wrote 25 years ago.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Her suicide note?
Adrian Monk: He realized that with that note, he could kill his wife with impunity. It was in her handwriting. Nobody would ever question it.
Dianne Brooks: [v.o.] "The depression is overwhelming. Give Tangerine a good home. No relief. Even today I was eating Rocco's with Adrian and Trudy. Breaking that glass in the quad today felt like the final straw."
Adrian Monk: But he had one problem. Because the note was 25 years old, obviously, there were a couple of things in it that were no longer true.
Natalie: Like the name of her dog.
Adrian Monk: Exactly. And breaking that glass. And eating at the restaurant "with Adrian and Trudy." That's what he was doing all weekend. He was recreating parts of her life to match that suicide note.
Natalie: So when we found out, we wouldn't be suspicious.
Lieutenant Disher: Why did he kill the nurse?
Captain Stottlemeyer: He had no choice. Katherine Rutherford read that note 25 years ago. It would have been made public. She would have recognized it.
Natalie: Oh, my God, Mr. Monk, he could be doing it right now.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Captain Stottlemeyer: Registration sheets are all gone.
Lieutenant Disher: Monk, do you have a cell phone number?
Adrian Monk: No.
Lieutenant Disher: Do you know where they stayed?
Adrian Monk: Some hotel.
Captain Stottlemeyer: There are over 200 hotels in this city, Monk. It'll take us over five hours to check them all.
Adrian Monk: Hold on. Hold on. [tenses his back]
Lieutenant Disher: What's he doing?
Captain Stottlemeyer: I don't know. What are you doing?
Adrian Monk: The hotel where they're staying. It was on the registration form.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Yeah, so?
Adrian Monk: When Dianne signed it, we were standing in line. She wrote... She wrote on my back.
Lieutenant Disher: Can he do that?
Natalie: That's how he met Trudy. It's his superpower.
