Quote from Natalie

Shirt Salesman: How are you today? Do you see anything you like?
Adrian Monk: Is Dennis here? He usually takes care of me.
Shirt Salesman: Oh, no, I'm afraid Dennis quit.
Adrian Monk: He quit?
Shirt Salesman: Yeah, apparently he had one regular customer that was driving him crazy.
Natalie: Now, we're gonna be up all night wondering who that was.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Shirt Salesman: Okay, here you go. Inspected by number 8. Is there really a difference?
Adrian Monk: Are you kidding? Look at this. Look, she's an artist. Oh, I've been admiring her work for years. You know, every shirt, every stitch, every button is perfect. There's a tear. There's a tear.
Natalie: Where, where, where?
Adrian Monk: There's a tear, right there. Ah, look at this, the sleeve is all wrong. It's completely crooked.
Natalie: Well, maybe she had a bad day.
Adrian Monk: No, that's not possible. I know inspector number 8. She never lets anything get past her.
Natalie: Mr. Monk, are you okay?
Adrian Monk: Something's wrong.
Natalie: What?
Adrian Monk: Something is very wrong with inspector number 8. Dennis? Dennis?

Quote from Adrian Monk

Natalie: Yes, we're looking for another shirt just like this.
Shirt Salesman: You want the same shirt?
Adrian Monk: Identical, yeah. Same collar, same pattern, 16-inch neck, 33-inch sleeve.
Shirt Salesman: Okay, but you already have one of those, so, maybe it's time to try a little variety, because... [Natalie clears her throat] Or maybe not. Okay. Yeah, there you go. 16-inch collar, 33-inch sleeve.
Adrian Monk: No, this one's inspected by number 6. I'm not a big fan of number 6. Do you have any that are inspected by number 8?
Shirt Salesman: You're kidding, right? [off Monk's look] You're not kidding. Okay. The customer's always right. At least until today.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: It's not funny.
Natalie: Sorry.
Adrian Monk: Inspector number 8 is very important to me because no matter how bad things go, I knew I could always count on her.
Natalie: Mr. Monk, you understand you're talking about someone you have never even met. Who works in a factory somewhere who inspects shirts.
Adrian Monk: She's my soulmate.
Natalie: You don't even know if it's a man or a woman.
Adrian Monk: I love her. I think she's in trouble.
Natalie: Okay, maybe she's retired. Maybe there's a new number 8.
Adrian Monk: It's not possible. She would never retire. She loves her work. Look at this shirt. Now, inspector number 5, I can see him retiring, because he stopped caring years ago.

Quote from Lieutenant Disher

Natasia Zorelle: Um, I guess we can talk while I change. Meet me over there? Only one of you.
Lieutenant Disher: Okay. Guess the only fair way is alphabetically.
Adrian Monk: Oh. Adrian.
Lieutenant Disher: No, last names. So, A is no. B, no. C, no. D, Disher, that's...
Captain Stottlemeyer: Monk, you go. It's your case.
Lieutenant Disher: Disher comes before Monk. It's the first last name.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: Excuse me. Number 8? I'm Adrian Monk. This is my friend Natalie Teeger.
Maria Ortiz: Adrian Monk? The same?
Adrian Monk: Oh, you saved it. That's the only fan letter I ever wrote.
Maria Ortiz: I am Maria Ortiz.
Adrian Monk: Maria. It's an honor and a pleasure. It's so nice when you can put a face with the little tag in the pocket. Uh oh, are you approving this? This has a little stain there. [Maria sobs] I knew it. I knew it. You are upset about something.
Natalie: Maria, Mr. Monk has been really worried about you.
Maria Ortiz: It's not me. It's my son Pablo.
Natalie: Oh, I remember this case. The model, Cleo Vans.
Maria Ortiz: The papers are wrong. Everyone is wrong. Pablo is a good boy. He's innocent.
Adrian Monk: Oh, I know it's hard. You might feel better if you focused on your work. You know, and started inspecting these shirts again. Here's the thing, Maria. I've only got 5 shirts left.

Quote from Lieutenant Disher

Natalie: They all look so unhappy. How can you be that attractive and be so sad?
Lieutenant Disher: Well, maybe it's because we're never really sure if people like us for ourselves.

Quote from Lieutenant Disher

Captain Stottlemeyer: Were those prescription?
Gordo: Probably not.
Captain Stottlemeyer: We'll check with her doctor. Make a note.
Lieutenant Disher: I'll remember.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Where's your notebook?
Lieutenant Disher: I didn't bring it. It's an Italian suit. It was ruining the lines. Don't worry. I got it.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Julian Hodge: What's going on?
Adrian Monk: She's taking Julie home.
Julian Hodge: Why on earth would she do that?
Adrian Monk: Because I told her that you killed Cleo Vans a year ago. And I'm betting that you killed Natasia Zorel last night. Who else would have straightened the clothes on Cleo Vans's body?
Julian Hodge: Oh, and why would I do something like that?
Adrian Monk: I would have.
Julian Hodge: Is that it? Straightened out the clothes? [laughs] I mean, that's not evidence.
Adrian Monk: That's a hunch. That's all it is so far.
Julian Hodge: You trust your instincts, don't you?
Adrian Monk: Oh, yes.
Julian Hodge: And would it be the same infallible instincts that you used when picked out that jacket? Or when you did those buttons right up to the top on your shirt. What about the evidence, Mr. Monk? What about... Well, you've heard of DNA, right? I mean, does that ring a bell here?
Adrian Monk: DNA, yes.
Julian Hodge: The fibers, the hair, and the blood, they all belong to that boy, Pablo Ortiz, who's in jail. It couldn't have been me. Just not possible.
Adrian Monk: You're right. It's not possible. But you did it.

Quote from Natalie

Lieutenant Disher: Monk.
Adrian Monk: What?
Lieutenant Disher: They're about to take the body away. You wanna come have a look?
Adrian Monk: I'll be right there. I've only got 5 shirts left. What what if I spill something? What if one rips? They're like an endangered species.
Lieutenant Disher: [to Stottlemeyer] He's obsessing over shirts.
Natalie: Put your shirts in the dryer.
Adrian Monk: Yeah.
Natalie: Close the door. See if they mate.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Captain Stottlemeyer: Hey, Monk.
Adrian Monk: What?
Captain Stottlemeyer: What do you think?
Adrian Monk: About what?
Captain Stottlemeyer: About the dead guy in the kitchen.
Adrian Monk: Oh, yeah, sorry. I was thinking about something else.
Natalie: He's worried about the woman who inspects his shirts.
Adrian Monk: I've been to 3 different stores. Captain, the stitching, it's... It's all wrong. The collars are crooked.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Natalie: Okay, Captain, just please fill us in.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Okay, they're both classical musicians. They got married about 6 months ago.
Adrian Monk: It's just not like her.
Captain Stottlemeyer: The wife was down at the rehearsal studio practicing her cello. She comes home 3:30, she finds her husband dead on the kitchen floor. Room temperature, stabbed 3 times.
Adrian Monk: She's lying. She wasn't practicing. You can't play the cello wearing a long skirt like that. You know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna find inspector 8. I'm gonna track her down. Shirt factory's in Rockaway. That's two hours from here.
Lieutenant Disher: I think he's right.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Yeah, take her downtown. Hey, Monk. Thank you.
Adrian Monk: For what?
Captain Stottlemeyer: You solved the case.
Adrian Monk: Oh, yeah, sure. If she is in trouble, maybe I can help her.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: That's number 4. He's a hack. He makes inspector number 10 look like inspector number 6. Hi. 6. There she is. There she is. That's her. That's number 8.
Natalie: Well, are you gonna ask her out?
Adrian Monk: No, I'm just... I'm nervous.
Natalie: Okay, go on. Go on.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: How did this happen? How do you talk me into these things?
Natalie: Because it's the right thing to do.
Adrian Monk: Have you read this? Look, there are witnesses. There's DNA evidence. Natalie, he did it. There's no doubt about it.
Natalie: Well, it doesn't hurt to meet him.
Adrian Monk: If I go back to Maria and tell her that her son is guilty, she'll completely fall apart which will be worse because I am down to 5 shirts.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Pablo Ortiz: How do you know my mother?
Adrian Monk: From her work at the factory. I'm a big fan.
Pablo Ortiz: A fan?

Quote from Adrian Monk

Natalie: Pablo, your mother asked that we look into your case. We'd like to hear your side.
Pablo Ortiz: I did not kill Cleo Vans. That is my side. I never met her. I never see her. There was a fashion show at a big Hotel. I was a deliver boy. I deliver some clothes there, then I go home. And the next day, I'm arrested. Es una pesadilla. It is a nightmare.
Adrian Monk: Pablo, your DNA was all over the victim. Your blood, your hair. How do you explain that?
Pablo Ortiz: I don't know. It's a mistake. A misunderstanding.
Adrian Monk: Clea Vance had a roommate who testified that Cleo was afraid of you. She said that you were stalking her. Look. It says right here. Pablo Ortiz was obsessed with her. You see that? Right there.
Pablo Ortiz: [nods] I see it.
Adrian Monk: You're lying, Pablo. It doesn't say that. You can't read English, can you?
Pablo Ortiz: No, sir. I was raised in Mexico with my father. I have been here 3 years only and I can speak English but I cannot read.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Natalie: What is it?
Adrian Monk: It's the emergency exit.
Natalie: Yeah?
Adrian Monk: Well, the killer didn't use it. According to this floor plan, he would've had to go all the way around back through the kitchen. It was crowded. It was risky. Somebody could've seen him.
Natalie: Yeah, but he wouldn't use it. The alarm would sound.
Adrian Monk: Exactly. Whoever killed this woman read that sign.
Natalie: And Pablo can't read. Do you think he's innocent? You do, don't you?

Quote from Adrian Monk

Natalie: So these are her shoes?
Gordo: That's right. Yeah, you see this blood? And this hair and these fibers. They all belonged to Pablo Ortiz. It's a slam dunk.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Yeah, I don't see any wiggle room here, do you?
Gordo: No, we got it right, man. People lie. People lie all the time. But DNA? It never lies.
Adrian Monk: I'm thinking... I'm thinking maybe he's not the guy.

Quote from Captain Stottlemeyer

Captain Stottlemeyer: Look, Monk, I'd follow you anywhere, but I've got 4 cases on my plate right now. But you have fun. Knock yourself out. Thanks, Gordo.
Lieutenant Disher: See you at the party.
Adrian Monk: Here's the statement from that Natasia Zorel. She was the victim's roommate. Let's start with her.
Lieutenant Disher: Did you just say you were gonna go and talk to Natasia Zorel?
Captain Stottlemeyer: The supermodel.
Adrian Monk: [Disher holds up a magazine] Is that her?
Lieutenant Disher: You know, actually, I've got the rest of the day off. I should probably go with you guys.
Captain Stottlemeyer: You know, I think I'll come along too. In the interest of...
Natalie: Justice?
Captain Stottlemeyer: Yeah, justice.
