Dr. Kroger Quote #7

Quote from Dr. Kroger in 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?

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.

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 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.
