Adrian Monk Quote #2160
Adrian Monk: Here's what happened. Your husband never abducted you. No one abducted you. It was a setup from the very beginning. You did spend three days in that cabin, but you weren't a prisoner. You were hiding out. You were waiting. You chained yourself up so the bruises would be real. And you starved yourself.
You were an actress, preparing for the biggest performance of your life. Then, last night, you went back to your house. You brought a rug from the cabin and you put it down to the floor. Then, you waited in the shadows. You killed him there, then dragged his body back to the cabin. It was show time. To the world, you were a woman who had escaped from her sadistic husband. You were a hero. A very wealthy hero.
Sally Larkin: Well, that's a very nice little story, Detective Monk.
Adrian Monk: It's more than a story. I can prove that you didn't spend three days in that cabin, chained to the floorboards. You made one mistake. While you were missing, we went to your house to question your husband. The captain was chewing some gum. He had some trouble. He ended up spitting it out. Last night, after the murder, you accidentally stepped on the same piece of gum. [removes gum from mouth] This piece of gum. The one that was stuck to your shoe.
Sally Larkin: You can't prove that's the same piece of gum. Gum is gum.
Adrian Monk: Not this gum. This is Disher-Mint gum. Diet blueberry. It's homemade. It was on your shoe.
Sally Larkin: You've been chewing that piece of gum for five hours?
Adrian Monk: No. I've been chewing this piece of gum for five and a... Half. Oh, my God. Chewing this gum for five and a half hours! [throws gum on the ground]
Quote from Adrian Monk
Lieutenant Disher: All right, well she told some paramedic that she loosened one of those baseboards. She pretended to be asleep. When he came back to check on her. Bam. Side of the head. [Monk laughs]
Captain Stottlemeyer: Monk, do you have something you'd like to share with the rest of us?
Adrian Monk: I can see his butt.
Natalie: Mr. Monk, the man is dead.
Adrian Monk: Yeah, of embarrassment! Sorry. I've got it. Here's what happened. Tuesday night, Larkin abducted his wife from that parking lot. He overpowered her. Maybe he drugged her. Then, he brought her up here. He kept her prisoner. For three days, he taunted her. He humiliated her. Something about some jewelry. He- He even refused to feed her. But last night he went a little too far. In all the excitement, his pants fell down. He killed himself. He didn't have a choice. She'd seen his hiney. [laughs]
Captain Stottlemeyer: I think we're done here.
Quote from Adrian Monk
Dr. Lawrence Climan: We are going to take a little trip together, you and I. We are going back in time. Going back before the pain. Before the fear.
Adrian Monk: Before the fear.
Dr. Lawrence Climan: Good. You're with Trudy now.
Adrian Monk: No, no! Trudy. I'm gonna lose her again. I'm gonna lose her again!
Dr. Lawrence Climan: Okay, okay. We're moving on. We're- We're- We're moving back a little further. Now, you're in high school.
Adrian Monk: It's third period. It's gym class. They're gonna make me climb that rope. I can't climb that rope.
I can't, please don't make me climb that rope.
Dr. Lawrence Climan: Okay, okay, no, no. We're moving back, moving back. Further back. Way back. Before the fear. Here we go. We are going back. [Monk smiles] Is that a smile? Are you happy? [Monk nods] Adrian, where are you? Where are you?
Quote from Mr. Monk and the Daredevil
Natalie: Where are you going?
Adrian Monk: Bathroom.
Captain Stottlemeyer: Why? [Monk is silent] I'll go with you.
Adrian Monk: I don't think so.
Captain Stottlemeyer: No, let me go with you.
Natalie: We promised Dr. Kroger we wouldn't leave you alone.
Adrian Monk: I am not suicidal. I just wish I was never born. There's a difference.
Quote from Mr. Monk Is At Your Service
Natalie: Are you afraid of frogs?
Adrian Monk: I don't know. I've never been this close to one. [A frog lands on Monk's shoe] Yes. The answer is yes. Put frogs on the list. Where's the list?
Natalie: I got it. I got it. Where does it go?
Adrian Monk: Put them between possums and, uh, soccer riots. No, no, no. Uh, after after soccer riots. And before, uh, before hailstones. Yeah, so it goes...
Natalie: I got it, I got it: Soccer riots, frogs, hailstones.
Adrian Monk: At least now we know. Information really is power.
