Monk: Mr. Monk and the Captain's Wife
Captain Stottlemeyer's wife, Karen, is badly injured when her car is struck by a tow truck whose driver has been killed by a sniper. The captain suspects the sleazy union official and his thug to behind the crime, but with Monk around, the real culprit is about to be capture.
Stottlemeyer: I understand now, Monk. You can't let it go, can you?
Stottlemeyer: Don't ever lose that watch.
Dr. Kroger: It's a tough case. How do you feel?
Monk: I'm torn. Half of me is worried about Karen, forty per cent is worried about the captain, and five per cent is relieved that somebody finally understands what I've been going through.
Dr. Kroger: Do you know that's not a hundred per cent?
Monk: I know. I always keep part of me empty for emergencies.
When the captain is helping his wife load up the minivan, as he puts the heavy box of lighting equipment in the van, a stagehand is visible in the side window.
