Monk: Mr. Monk and the Other Detective

401. Mr. Monk and the Other Detective

Aired July 8, 2005

Monk is stumped when a formerly second-rate private investigator, Marty Eels (guest star Jason Alexander), is full of insight into a robbery and murder case.

Quote from Dr. Kroger

Dr. Kroger: No, no, Adrian, I'm not suggesting that you just give up. I'm saying to you that there is always someone ahead of you. This is the human condition. For instance, there, there's a new psychiatrist here in town, name of Lowenstern. Now, I know that there is no way that I will ever be, well, as good as he is. I know this. I accept it.
Adrian Monk: He's better than you?
Dr. Kroger: He's brilliant. Nominated for a Nobel prize. But, the point is, you think that you might enjoy teaching.
Adrian Monk: I don't know. Tell me more about this Lowenstern.
Dr. Kroger: Lowenstern. I could introduce you. Office is right across the street. He charges $400 an hour.
Adrian Monk: ... So where, where were we?

Quote from Adrian Monk

Natalie: Mr. Monk, are you okay? Everybody's waiting.
Adrian Monk: It's over there.
Natalie: What?
Adrian Monk: Dog, you know. Dog doo.
Natalie: Did you step in it?
Adrian Monk: If I stepped in it, I'd be in that ambulance right now on my way to the emergency room, wouldn't I? Praying for the sweet release that only death can bring.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Captain Stottlemeyer: Adrian Monk, Natalie Teeger, this is Marty Eels. He's a private investigator.
Marty Eels: Hey, how you doing? [shakes Monk's hand] How you doing? I hear good things. Good things. Don't worry. I'm not competition. [Natalie hands Monk a wipe] I'm just here to help. Can I have one of those? So what have we got?
Adrian Monk: Captain, I don't think the manager did this. For one thing, he didn't lock the door behind him. Plus, I notice some more blood by the curb. I think there was a second shooting.
Marty Eels: Yeah, he could be right. Very good. Nicely done. Nicely done. [to Natalie] Thanks, sweetheart.
Lieutenant Disher: Captain! He's right. I think he belongs to the store manager. Harold Gumbal. Geary St., Oakland.
Marty Eels: You know, if the manager was robbing his own store, he wouldn't bring his dog along.
Adrian Monk: Or leave him behind. No, the manager is not the guy.
Marty Eels: No, that's right. The manager is not the guy.
Adrian Monk: Here's what happ-
Marty Eels: Here's what happened. Here's what happened! This dog was a hostage. The manager was being forced to rob his store. Something went wrong, and they shot the guard. Excuse me.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Captain Stottlemeyer: So, Monk, what do you think? Who are we looking for?
Adrian Monk: Uh, I'd say it's a terrier. A yorkie, maybe a chihuahua. Probably miles away by now. We'll never catch him.
Natalie: He can't concentrate because of the...
Captain Stottlemeyer: Because of the what?
Natalie: [whispers] The dog poo.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Lieutenant? Clean that up for me, would you? Thanks.
Lieutenant Disher: Sergeant?
Uniform Cop: Yes, sir?
Lieutenant Disher: Clean that up.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Marty Eels: Come on. Come. Come on in. Sit down. Sit down. Here. Natalie, come sit down. Come sit down. Make yourself at home. Monk, sit. Sit anywhere.
Adrian Monk: Oh, that's okay. I'm not fine.
Marty Eels: Did he just say he's not fine?
Natalie: Yeah.

Quote from Julie Teeger

Julie Teeger: Mom, have you seen my camera?
Natalie: Did you check your jacket? What about your pockets?
Julie Teeger: Yes. I looked everywhere.
Natalie: Well, I haven't seen it, honey. Why don't you ask Mr. Monk to help you?
Julie Teeger: Please, Mr. Monk, it has all my photos in it from my school trip. I was the official photographer. If I lose it, I'm going to get an incomplete.
Adrian Monk: When did you see it last?
Julie Teeger: I saw it yesterday in the living room.
Adrian Monk: That plant has been moved recently.
Natalie: That's right. How did you know?
Adrian Monk: Normally they lean toward the sun. This one is leaning the other way. Hello.
Julie Teeger: Oh, Mr. Monk, thank you so much. You're the best. Isn't he the best?
Natalie: There's no one better. You really are amazing. Ha!
Adrian Monk: Wait. When did you water this?
Natalie: Oh, uh, this morning.
Adrian Monk: Well, the camera could not have been back there this morning. It would've gotten wet. Thanks for trying, Julie.
Julie Teeger: My mom put me up to this.

Quote from Natalie

Natalie: Oh! Good morning, boss. They were out of the round sponges. Don't panic, I'll pick some up on the way home.
Adrian Monk: Don't worry about the groceries. You're driving me to Fulton College. I have an appointment. 11 o'clock.
Natalie: You mean now? You're just gonna quit. Just like that.
Adrian Monk: I think I would make a very good teacher.
Natalie: Oh, Mr. Monk, you'd make a terrible teacher. It would take you four weeks to correct one paper. You're a detective. You're a great detective.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Natalie: We know how you did it, Marty. We figured it out.
Marty Eels: How I did what?
Natalie: Didn't your mother ever tell you that cheaters never win?
Adrian Monk: Actually, it was your mother's idea. She works for Pacific Global Airlines, doesn't she? In the quality control department?
Marty Eels: Yeah, so?
Adrian Monk: Here's what happened. After the murderers, Blanchard and Dial, went back to their motel room, counted their jewels. And then they called the airlines to buy plane tickets to Costa Rica. They were put on hold. What they didn't know was that your mother was already on the line monitoring their call. They must have been on hold for quite a while, because they talked about everything. Who they killed, where they dumped the car, even where they hid the masks.
Natalie: But she didn't call the police. She called you. And told you everything you needed to know to solve the case.
Adrian Monk: Or at least pretend to solve it.
Marty Eels: You're a very smart man.
Natalie: Yeah, he's the real thing.
Marty Eels: Yeah. Of course, you realize you have no proof for any of this.
Natalie: Don't airlines record phone conversations?
Adrian Monk: Yes, Nat, I believe they do.
Marty Eels: Yes, they certainly do. But those conversations have a way of being accidentally erased. So it's really your word against mine. And who do you think everyone's gonna believe? The amazing Marty Eels or yesterday's news? [phone rings] Phone's been ringing off the hook. Case, cases, cases. Would you mind?

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Uniformed Cop #2: Sir, you can't park there.
Marty Eels: It's all right. It's okay. I'm a detective. I'm a detective. One second. Here we go. Here we, um, hold that. I got it. I usually keep it right...Oh, I got it. Here we go. Marty Eels, private investigator. I'm here to save your butts. Captain! Captain Stottlemeyer!
Captain Stottlemeyer: Oh, hell.
Lieutenant Disher: Who's that?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Marty Eels. He's a private investigator. Nickel and dime stuff. Divorces, insurance fraud. He's a professional pain in the ass.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Marty Eels: Hey, captain. Captain, you're looking great. You're losing weight or your shirts are getting bigger.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Marty. I heard the D.A. pulled your license.
Marty Eels: No, no, that was just a temporary suspension. No, no, no. No, no. That was just a little misunderstanding.
Captain Stottlemeyer: A misunderstanding?
Marty Eels: Well, that's all ancient history anyway, so so I was just, you know, riding around in the neighborhood. And I heard a call go out on the police scanner, and...
Captain Stottlemeyer: Look, Marty, I'm busy.
Marty Eels: Yeah, yeah, that's why I thought I'd come down here and lend a hand. So what do we got? The jewelry store was robbed. Well, that's obvious. We got a dead rent-a-cop and a missing store manager. So, let me guess, you're thinking the store manager's doing this...
Captain Stottlemeyer: Yeah, something like that.
Marty Eels: So let me look around, huh? I mean, an extra pair of eyes can't hurt. And who knows? I could see something you guys are missing.
Lieutenant Disher: We're not missing anything, Mr. Eels. We've got a CSI team here. And, uh, see that man over there? That's Adrian Monk. I think we're in pretty good hands.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Uniformed Cop: Captain, Monk says I can't just throw this away. I gotta take it, like, a mile away and bury it.
Marty Eels: Could I see that?
Uniform Cop: Yeah.
Marty Eels: You can't throw this away. This, this is evidence. [sniffs] This is fresh. Mmm, I'd say this is less than ninety-minutes old.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Marty.
Marty Eels: But isn't that when you said all this was probably going down? The dog could've belonged to the victim or to one of the perps. I think this is important. Monk was gonna throw this away.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Um. You know, he might be right. Let's, um, book that into evidence.
Uniform Cop: Yes, sir.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Lieutenant Disher: Captain, look. [points to dog]
Marty Eels: Did that store manager live in Oakland?
Lieutenant Disher: Yeah, how'd you know that?
Marty Eels: That's his dog. That's from Oakland. You can see the blue license on its collar.
Captain Stottlemeyer: What, you can see that from here?
Marty Eels: A little something I call "attention to detail." but...
Captain Stottlemeyer: [to Disher] Go get the dog.

Quote from Adrian Monk

[Marty Eeles goes and lies down on the ground next to the covered body of the victim]
Natalie: What the hell is he doing?
Adrian Monk: Captain.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Well, he did spot the dog's license from a block away.
Marty Eels: Okay. They drove off in Gumbal's car. They headed South. They're gonna dump it as soon as they can.
Lieutenant Disher: We're already checking the airport.
Marty Eels: No, that's a waste of time. They would never go there. There's too much security. Try the train station.
Lieutenant Disher: Train station.
Marty Eels: Yeah. Try, um, San Bruno or Millbrae.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: They probably panicked when they shot the guard. Maybe they dropped the gun or some bloody clothes somewhere nearby. [sniffs the dog's nose]
Adrian Monk: What, what are you doing there? What-
Marty Eels: This dog has been sniffing around a sewer recently. See these sewer grates around here? The perps might have stuffed something down in there and maybe this dog saw them do it.
Adrian Monk: You gotta be kidding. He's, he's kidding, right? He's joking. The man is joking.
Marty Eels: It'll just take two minutes to check it.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Officer! Take a look in that sewer grate.
Adrian Monk: Captain. From smelling a dog. That's impossible.
Uniformed Cop: Captain! They were stuffed down the drain just like he said.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Marty Eels: [on the news] No. No, mom. I wasn't on the news. Because there were no reporters there yet. I found a lot of clues. I found three or four big clues. Cap, captain was very impressed with me. Wait. He just walked in. He'll tell you. One second. Captain, it's my mother. Tell her, tell her how good I was on the crime scene.
Captain Stottlemeyer: [takes the phone] Uh, Mrs. Eels? Hi. Uh, yeah. Marty did great. You'd be very proud of him. He's a first-rate detective. I look forward to meeting you too, ma'am. Okay, bye-bye. [hangs up phone] What were those beeps?
Marty Eels: Oh, she was, she was at work. She works for Pacific Global Airlines. She's a, she's a quality control operator.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Marty Eels: So, captain, am I on the case or what?
Captain Stottlemeyer: First, I have to ask you a couple questions.
Marty Eels: Yeah, yeah.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Where were you yesterday morning at 8:00?
Marty Eels: You mean, when the robbery was happening?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Yeah.
Marty Eels: You guys think I had something to do with that? Why? Because you can't keep up with me on a crime scene?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Where were you, Marty?
Marty Eels: I was at the hospital. St. Andrew's. They thought I had a concussion.
Lieutenant Disher: What happened?
Marty Eels: Well... That's kind of embarrassing. I, um I got hit very hard by a client. Hit me very hard. Yeah. Um I was, um, supposed to follow his wife and take pictures.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Whoa. She was cheating on him.
Marty Eels: No. No. That, that, that's him. That's my client.
Natalie: You burst in and took a picture of a man in bed with his own wife?
Marty Eels: Yes, I did. I made a mistake. I'm human. So the bottom line is I was at the hospital when the jewelry thing was happening. You can call them.
Captain Stottlemeyer: We will.
Marty Eels: Why is it so hard for you guys to believe that I'm just this good?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Because, Marty, you were never this good before. In fact, you sort of sucked.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Marty Eels: Well, I, I've been teaching myself. I've been, I've learned how to focus. And that's really the secret. Focus, right? Am I right about the focus thing?
Adrian Monk: Bay Area Center Continuing Education. Is that a correspondence school?
Marty Eels: It's fully accredited. What school did you go to?
Adrian Monk: Berkeley.
Marty Eels: That's a good school. I believe they're fully accredited too.
Adrian Monk: Yeah. Yeah, they're fully accredited.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: Captain, could I? You can't hire this guy.
Captain Stottlemeyer: He did find the ski masks.
Adrian Monk: By smelling a dog. It's not possible.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Look, Monk, sometimes when you're picking up clues, it seems like magic to me. I don't know how you do it. Maybe he's doing something that you don't understand.
Adrian Monk: I think he's cheating. He's a cheater.
Captain Stottlemeyer: This isn't the fourth grade, Monk.
Adrian Monk: He's cheating.
Captain Stottlemeyer: How?
Adrian Monk: How. I don't know.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Lieutenant Disher: We just found the store manager's car. Guess where it was.
Adrian Monk: Near a train station?
Lieutenant Disher: In San Bruno. Outstanding. You called it, Marty.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Let's go check it out. Marty, come here. You ride with me.
Adrian Monk: [to Natalie] He's cheating.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Mrs. Eels: Marty Eels. E, e, l, s like the fish. He's always wanted to be a detective. He used to stay up late reading hardy boys stories under the cover.
Reporter: So your son is helping Adrian Monk?
Mrs. Eels: Who's helping who? That's the question.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Marty Eels: I love that. Love the, uh, the thing you do with your hands. It's very old school.
Adrian Monk: Thank you. [Marty grabs a piece of mud from the tires and puts it in his mouth] What, what are you doing?
Marty Eels: Mud. You can tell where the car has been.
Adrian Monk: From tasting it. He's tasting the mud.
Natalie: Does that work?
Adrian Monk: No! It's just nuts.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Marty Eels: Captain, how tall was the store manager?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Uh...
Lieutenant Disher: 5'10" according to his driver's license.
Marty Eels: Somebody else was driving this car because that, that chair has been adjusted for somebody 5'11".
Adrian Monk: Excuse me. Excuse me. It's impossible to know that. Seat adjustments are not that exact.
Lieutenant Disher: Should I write down 5'11"?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Uh, I don't know. Yes. In pencil.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Marty Eels: And this car was driven on Highway 47.
Captain Stottlemeyer: And how do you happen to know that?
Marty Eels: It's all in the details, captain. See the dead bugs on the windshield. This is a gray bantam wing mosquito. Which are most common where? Anybody? Walter Creek reservoir.
Lieutenant Disher: In Livingston. Highway 47. That's fantastic.
Adrian Monk: Bantam wing mosquitoes.
Marty Eels: Gentlemen, let's pop the trunk. Monk.
Adrian Monk: This blood is still fresh.
Marty Eels: Yes, it is. Good for you. Write that down. One for Monk. All right, Gumbal was dragged out of the car. And into these woods. Okey-doke. Here we go.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Marty Eels: These leaves were recently crushed. I'm one-sixteenth Cherokee.
Lieutenant Disher: Cool. I thought he might be. [Marty picks up a stick]
Natalie: Now what's he doing?
Adrian Monk: I can't look.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Oh, he's using a divining rod.
Lieutenant Disher: The Indians used to use them. He's one-sixteenth cherokee.
Mrs. Eels: Ooh, that's my boy. Can everybody see okay? Take lots of pictures. Film is cheap.
Marty Eels: [trips] I've got found the store manager.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Stay back! Stay back! Get outta here!
Lieutenant Disher: Back off, back off. Get these guys outta here.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Marty Eels: That's interesting.
Adrian Monk: What?
Marty Eels: You don't see that? Look at his arms. That is an unnatural position.
Adrian Monk: What? Unnatural?
Marty Eels: I think he was trying to tell us something. With his dying breath, he was trying to send us a message.
Adrian Monk: With his dying breath.
Marty Eels: He was trying to tell us the name of the man who killed him. Look. He's pointing to his watch.
Adrian Monk: No, he's not.
Marty Eels: Captain, are there any perps who do a job like this by the name of Casio?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Casio?
Marty Eels: Lefty?
Adrian Monk: Captain.
Marty Eels: Dial?
Lieutenant Disher: Eddie Dial. He just did seven years in Folsom for kidnapping and bank robbery. He just made parole.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Well, let's check him out.

Quote from Natalie

Natalie: Mr. Monk, you really are amazing. You're probably the best in the world. And you're right about this Marty character. He's cheating.
Adrian Monk: I don't know.
Natalie: He is.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Captain Stottlemeyer: We found the manager's wallet in your motel room, Eddie. It's over. We own you.
Eddie Dial: Look, man, I didn't hurt anybody, okay? I didn't even have a gun.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Well, two people are dead, Edward. Who did the shooting? I'm willing to bet you it was that guy. Blanchard, Victor P. The two of you were seen together last weekend. Where is he, Eddie?
Eddie Dial: I don't know.
Marty Eels: Captain, may I? [rubs hands, places hand on Eddie's neck] Where's your... Where's your partner, Eddie?
Eddie Dial: I don't know.
Marty Eels: Hmm, he's telling the truth. He, he doesn't know. Do you have a map?
[in the observation room:]
Lieutenant Disher: He's like a human lie detector. I can't believe it.
Adrian Monk: I can't believe it either.
Lieutenant Disher: Well, he's doing it.
Adrian Monk: I still don't believe it. What you see happening in the next room, it's impossible. It's just...

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Marty Eels: All right. Now, then, Eddie, where did you hide the jewels? Was it, Was it here? No. Uh, was it here? No. Uh, how about here? Ah, getting warmer. Did you hide them here, Eddie? Ah! Yes. They're in the state park.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Get outta here. I know this area. There's a water tower right here.
Marty Eels: Oh. Oh. [places one hand on Eddie's neck and the other on Eddie's ear] Did you, uh, did you hide them near the water tower, Eddie? Hmm. Bingo! Yes!
Captain Stottlemeyer: Call Dunlop in the Parks Department. Tell him to meet us there. And tell him to bring some shovels.
Lieutenant Disher: Yes, sir.
Captain Stottlemeyer: I don't know how the hell I'm gonna write this up.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Adrian Monk: He's cheating!
Captain Stottlemeyer: What, Monk? How is he cheating? We've got a suspect who just confessed. He found the car. He found the body. He is solving this case single-handedly.
Adrian Monk: By cheating!
Captain Stottlemeyer: Natalie, what do you think?
Natalie: I believe my boss.
Adrian Monk: Anyway, we, we better go. Should we take one car or two cars?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Monk, why don't you stay here? We're gonna let Marty take this one.
Natalie: Whoa, whoa, wait, wait. You're firing him?
Captain Stottlemeyer: No. No. Um, it's just that Marty seems to be in a zone. He's got a handle on this one. You get the next one, okay? I'll call you.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Dr. Kroger: So that found the jewels?
Adrian Monk: They were right where Marty said they'd be. Of course.
Dr. Kroger: And what, then they asked you to step aside?
Adrian Monk: They said Marty was on a roll. I guess they didn't want me to cramp his style.
Dr. Kroger: Well, Adrian, I'm sure that this is all just temporary.
Adrian Monk: Maybe he really is better than me.
Dr. Kroger: Yeah, well, would that be so terrible? I mean if you weren't number one?
Adrian Monk: An ex-cop I know teaches criminal justice at Fulton College. He offered me a job last year. Maybe I'll give him a call.
Dr. Kroger: All right, so you're just giving up.
Adrian Monk: Okay.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: Fine, I will drive myself. I'll rent a car. [picks up phone] See? I am dialing the number. I'm not bluffing.
Natalie: Do you even have a driver's license?
Adrian Monk: Yes, I have a license. Okay, this is it. This is the last digit. I have dialed the number. It is ringing.
Woman: [on the phone] Thank you for calling Cannon rent-a-car. This call may be monitored for quality purposes.
Adrian Monk: I am on hold.
Natalie: Mr. Monk, Fulton College is 100 miles away. It is up the interstate. It's over a bridge.
Adrian Monk: I know. I have a blindfold for going over bridges.
Natalie: But you'll be driving.
Adrian Monk: Good point. I think I can make it. I'll just sort of peek underneath.
Natalie: I'm not gonna let you drive! You've never driven over a bridge in your life.
Adrian Monk: What choice do I have?
Woman: [on the phone] Excuse me. Excuse me, sir?
Adrian Monk: Yes? My daughter goes to Fulton College. You don't have to take the bridge. You can take the causeway all the way up.
Adrian Monk: You could hear us?
Woman: Yes, sir. I'm a quality control operator. I'm monitoring the call.
Adrian Monk: I, I was on hold.
Woman: Yes, sir. We start listening as soon as you're connected. You wouldn't believe the things I hear. People fooling around, people arguing. I could write a book about it.
Adrian Monk: You could hear me while I was on hold.
Woman: That's right.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Marty Eels: Hey, Monk! What a nice surprise. This guy's from San Francisco Magazine. I'm one of the ten most eligible bachelors in the city. Can you believe it?
Natalie: Marty, we need to talk.
Marty Eels: Not a good time, Nat.
Natalie: Did you just call me Nat?
Marty Eels: Hey, hey! Get one with me and Monk.
Adrian Monk: No.
Marty Eels: Here. No, no, no. This is good. It's like a summit of great minds. Philip Marlowe meets Sherlock Holmes.
Natalie: It's about your mother. A little something she might have overheard while at work.
Natalie: Can't hear. The music's too loud. I can't hear. [to the photographer] Take, take a five. Take a five.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Marty Eels: Wait! Mr. Monk! Mr. Monk! Wait! Wait, Mr. Monk! Mr. Monk, wait, wait, wait! It's Vic Blanchard. He just called. He's got my mother.
Natalie: Oh, my God. I'll call the captain.
Marty Eels: No, no! No, no cops. He said no cops or he'd kill her. Mr. Monk, please, you gotta help me. You were right! I don't know what I'm doing! I don't.
Adrian Monk: Let's go.

Quote from Natalie

Marty Eels: This wasn't even my idea. My mother made me do this. She forced me into it. She said it was the only way a loser like me was ever gonna be able to solve a real crime.
Natalie: She sounds delightful.
Marty Eels: Hey, that's my mother. Where do you get off talking about somebody else's mother? What's wrong with you?

Quote from Natalie

Adrian Monk: Marty, I want you to focus. Can you focus? All right, the caller said that she would be dead by, by, by 8:20, was it?
Natalie: Why 8:20? Why not 8:00 or 8:30?
Marty Eels: Think!
Adrian Monk: I'm thinking.
Marty Eels: Well, think harder.
Natalie: Why don't you think?
Marty Eels: Hey, I'm not the great big famous detective.
Natalie: Well, you were two hours ago.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: Mrs. Eels, you're probably going to have to testify about that phone call you overheard.
Mrs. Eels: You told him.
Marty Eels: I didn't tell him. He figured it out. He's a real detective.
Adrian Monk: Actually, he found you. We had no idea where you were. He put all the clues together. He, um... It really was some of the most unique detective work I've ever seen.
Natalie: Just an incredible detective.
Adrian Monk: I mean, his detecting is like...
Natalie: What? He doesn't need anyone's help, Mrs. Eels.
Adrian Monk: No. No one's help.
Mrs. Eels: Really?
Marty Eels: When the kidnapper called, they both panicked.
Adrian Monk: I, I, I'm prone to panicking.
Marty Eels: And I had to say, "let's get focused!" Because my mother's in trouble. And- And that got everybody focused. But, but then I had to, I had to concentrate on sounds from the background. I could hear the ocean. And, and I heard a clang and a thud.
Adrian Monk: A thud and a clang.
Marty Eels: And a thud and a clang. And, and 8:20, why not 8:00? Why not 8:30? And then I remembered high tide is at 8:20. Once I, once I had that piece, then it all fell together.
Mrs. Eels: Oh, Marty. Marty, you're wonderful.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Marty Eels: I'd like to thank the police department, particularly captain Stottlemeyer and, uh, Adrian Monk. This was a very difficult case for me. Uh, last night I, I made a decision. It's, it's the toughest decision of my career, but I am going to, um, resign my practice, and, uh, take a teaching position at Fulton Community College, uh, where I'll be teaching modern criminal investigative techniques.
Captain Stottlemeyer: [to Monk] You were right about him, weren't you? He was cheating.
Marty Eels: Sorry, dropped the key.
Captain Stottlemeyer: He was cheating.
