Quote from Dr. Kroger in Mr. Monk and the Girl Who Cried Wolf

Dr. Kroger: You know, it's a confusing time, not just for you, but for everyone. It's hard to feel centered. These days, it's hard to even know where the center is. What are you feeling right now?
Sharona: Well, I feel weird being here like I'm trespassing. [Dr. Kroger chuckles] I bet those pillows must drive him crazy, huh?
Dr. Kroger: I'm not at liberty to say.
Sharona: Well, I see my window is cleaner than your window. That's got to be him.

Quote from Adrian Monk

Adrian Monk: Sharona wanted me to, to give you this.
Varla Davis: Mmmkay. Adrian Monk, care and feeding. Special diet, schedule, phobias. Heights, germs, snakes, crowds, milk... You're afraid of milk? How old are you, man? I got a 2 year old nephew who's not afraid of milk.
Adrian Monk: You must be very proud of him.
Varla Davis: For what, not being afraid of milk? That just means he's normal. [balls up paper] You don't need this. Sharona's a good nurse, but she's been treating you like a baby. The party is over, Adrian Monk, because I'm going to treat you like a man.
Adrian Monk: Don't do that.

Quote from Mr. Monk and the Big Reward

Adrian Monk: When I was on the force, I used to hate cashing my paycheck. I still do. To me, police work is like a higher calling. Like the priesthood.
Dr. Kroger: You know, Adrian, even priests have to get paid. But it brings up an interesting question. Something I would like to explore with you. What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Adrian Monk: Well, uh, I guess I'd hire you full time. And keep you on retainer. 24/7. Maybe I'd buy you a house right next to mine. So I could just drop in anytime. This is fun. What would you do with a million dollars?
Dr. Kroger: Buy an island. A desert island in the middle of nowhere.
Adrian Monk: So we would do our sessions over the phone?
Dr. Kroger: [chuckles] Well, see, this island, in my mind... No phone service.
Adrian Monk: Well, I guess I'd have to buy a boat.
Dr. Kroger: No, see, that's funny, because, the island, in my fantasy... No dock.

Quote from Mr. Monk and the Other Detective

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?
