Adrian Monk Quote #630
Adrian Monk: Sharona said I should start off with a joke to break the ice.
Ms. Lennington: Who's Sharona?
Adrian Monk: My nurse. Do you like Marmaduke?
Ms. Lennington: Who?
Adrian Monk: He's in the comics. He's a dog. But he's big. He's the biggest dog in the world. Today, he got stuck in the doggie door again. And the man said, "At least this time, he's facing the right way." [slight chuckle] You can learn a lot from Marmaduke.
Ms. Lennington: I think I just did.
Quote from Adrian Monk
Ms. Lennington: Mr. Monk, what would you say is your greatest strength?
Adrian Monk: Oh. Mm... [long, expectant pause] My decisiveness.
Quote from Adrian Monk
Dr. Kroger: Hello, Adrian. Thank you for coming in. Why don't you tell me a little bit about yourself?
Adrian Monk: Well, I was married for seven years until a car bomb killed my wife. I've spent the last seven years trying to track down the people responsible for my wife's murder.
Dr. Kroger: Do you have any hobbies?
Adrian Monk: I do. I spend my free time tracking down the people who planted the car bomb that killed my wife.
Dr. Kroger: Okay, Adrian, just a little pointer here. Maybe you don't have to keep mentioning the car bomb.
Adrian Monk: Okay. I'll just say bomb.
Quote from Lieutenant Disher
Lieutenant Disher: Good versus evil... It's just more of a constant struggle between right and wrong. Good and evil, it's the oldest struggle in the world. Am I afraid of dying? Everybody dies. Dying is just a part of living. But when I go, I'm gonna go with my badge held high and then to my house justified because it's my life. My life behind the badge.
Quote from Mr. Monk and the Daredevil

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.
