Episode Quotes
(About his new office)
Monk: Natalie, you can't afford this.
Natalie: Actually, you're paying for it.
Monk: I can't afford this!
Natalie: Oh yes you can. Remember last month when you got that bonus after solving the Kensington case?
Monk: No.
Natalie: That's because I used it for a down payment.
Monk: Grown-ups have a word for that. We call it "embezzlement."

Natalie: (Answering phone) Adrian Monk Investigation, What is the nature of your problem?
Monk: I'm been kept in a room against my will.
Natalie: You were kidnapped...uh, do you know who did it ?
Monk: Yes. It's my personal assistant, her name is Natalie...Teeger.

Natalie: You can't be afraid to take risks.
Monk: I think I can. In fact I think I already am. Hold on--germs, heights, snakes, milk, needles, risk. Yeah, it's on there, number 6.

Monk: You know, not everybody feels the same way you do about Grandpa Neville. For example, I was thinking about how much fun it would be to dig up his body and poke it with a big stick.
