"Monk" Mr. Monk and the Actor (TV Episode 2006) Poster

(TV Series)


Tony Shalhoub: Adrian Monk



  • Adrian Monk : [Monk bangs on the door]  Natalie, it's me.

    [Natalie opens her front door] 

    Adrian Monk : At least I think it's me.

    Natalie Teeger : Oh, Mr. Monk, what time is it?

    [she wipes sleep out of her eyes] 

    Adrian Monk : You were right about actors. He's completely unstable.

    [he walks into her house] 

    Natalie Teeger : What did he do?

    Adrian Monk : Oh, he's so selfish. He's immature. Get this: he barged into my house in the middle of the night, woke me up because he *felt* like talking...

    Natalie Teeger : Umm, I can't imagine what that would be like...

    Adrian Monk : So we talked for hours. I will say this, he gets me, he *really* gets me, he understands about Trudy. He was dredging up these feelings. Feelings I haven't had in years. And then he made us food - fried eggs with the yolk exactly in the center, I mean exactly. He used a ruler, just the way I like them.


    Adrian Monk : It was very confusing but delicious. Confusing, but delicious. And then he said he was tired and asked me to leave.

    Natalie Teeger : So you left?

    Adrian Monk : He has to get up at 6:00.

    Natalie Teeger : Mr. Monk, that's *your* house!

    Adrian Monk : [Momentarily stunned]  Boy, he's a good actor.

  • Dr. Charles Kroger : That must have been a traumatic experience for you Adrian. And they cancelled the movie?

    Adrian Monk : He said he wanted to play a character who wasn't so dark and depressing. He's in England doing Hamlet.

    Dr. Charles Kroger : How about the little getaway you were planning? The weekend away?

    [Adrian shakes his head] 

    Dr. Charles Kroger : All right, okay, maybe another time.

    Adrian Monk : I guess I'm back to square one.


    Adrian Monk : It's good to be home.

    Dr. Charles Kroger : Adrian, please don't be hard on yourself. I think we should go back to three days a week for just a little while. That would be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

    Adrian Monk : And Tuesday.

    Dr. Charles Kroger : Tuesday would be four days a week...

    [Monk give Kroger a beleaguered look] 

    Dr. Charles Kroger : Okay, I could see that just until you're back on your feet...

    Adrian Monk : And Thursday.

    Dr. Charles Kroger : Oh no, Thursday is five days a week, Adrian.

    [With his head in his hand Adrian moans] 

    Dr. Charles Kroger : Okay, that way five days a week would be easier to remember...

    Adrian Monk : And Saturday.

    Dr. Charles Kroger : Well, Saturday is the weekend and I don't like to see patients on the weekends.

    Adrian Monk : Saturday!

    Dr. Charles Kroger : Adrian, I have a family and I like to keep the weekend free...

    Adrian Monk : [Desperately]  Saturday!

    Dr. Charles Kroger : Okay, we'll try that for a weekend or two. So that would be Monday, Tuesday...

    Adrian Monk : And Sunday.
