[Julie Parlo finds Stottlemeyer]
Julie Parlo: Excuse me, Captain Stottlemeyer?
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Yep.
Julie Parlo: Hi, I'm Julie Parlo. Uh, where is the FBI? This is a kidnapping. I happen to be a lawyer, so I know that in a kidnapping situation the FBI has jurisprudence.
Lt. Randall Disher: That's only true if your grandmother's been taken across the state lines-
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Or if she's been held for more than 24 hours. And I think you meant to say "jurisdiction." What kind of lawyer are you?

Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: That assistant, she called you.
Sharona Fleming: Mm-hmm. Diane Luden.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Yeah, I gave her your name. I figured you'd collect a nice payday after you convinced her she was crazy.
Adrian Monk: Actually, I think she might be on to something.
Sharona Fleming: We'd like to look at the official file.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Look, there is no D'Souza case. It was an accident. The barbell slipped, crushed his trachea.
Lt. Randall Disher: He was alone in his apartment on the thirty-fifth floor.
Adrian Monk: I know.
Lt. Randall Disher: There was only one way up. It was a private elevator. Nobody else used it.
Adrian Monk: I know.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: The apartment was locked from the inside.
Adrian Monk: I know.
Sharona Fleming: Are you gonna be cooperating on this or not?
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: If you two wanna go tilting at windmills, be my guests. But this time, Monk, you're on your own.
Adrian Monk: Okay, forget it. Let's go. What's our first stop?
Sharona Fleming: Sapphire Mansion. We have an appointment. [This gets Randy's attention]
Lt. Randall Disher: Sapphire Mansion? You have an appointment?
Adrian Monk: Yes. Elliot D'Souza controlled that magazine. He was about to pull the plug on Dexter Larsen. I think Larsen might be involved.
Lt. Randall Disher: Saphhire Mansion. I've never been. Have you ever been?
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Once. Ten years ago.
Sharona Fleming: Did your wife find out?
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Yeah, I told her. In therapy, we were playing the honesty game.
Lt. Randall Disher: Red Roof Inn?
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Yup. This was before they built the new lobby.
Lt. Randall Disher: You know, Captain. I think Monk might be on to something. Maybe we should tag along.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Lieutenant, I think you might be right.
Sharona Fleming: Oh, God.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Hey, I'm married. I'm not dead.
Sharona Fleming: Ugh.

Captain Stottlemeyer: So you're denying any involvement in the kidnapping of Mrs. Parlo?
Ron Abrash: Of course I deny it! Demanding free turkey dinners? That's insane. Besides, I'm a vegan.

Dale "The Whale" Biederbeck: I want to make you an offer...
Sharona Fleming: Oh please, drop dead!
Dale "The Whale" Biederbeck: Well, you'd think I would have by now, wouldn't you? [laughs]

Dexter Larsen: [about his life before publishing Sapphire] I was a nerd, publishing my little electronics magazine. I was the kind of guy a woman like you would never talk to.
Sharona Fleming: You still are.

Granny Parlo: And--and it was raining.
Sharona Fleming: Are you sure? It wasn't raining all last week.
Granny Parlo: Listen, missy. I think I know what rain feels like. And that's what I felt when they carried me from the van into the house.

Leland Stottlemeyer: You win. I give up.
Adrian Monk: Excuse me?
Leland Stottlemeyer: First thing tomorrow, I am going to call the Vatican, and I am nominating your late wife, Trudy, for sainthood! Because you are IMPOSSIBLE!
Adrian Monk: The lines! They're all... diagonal! I have to live here!
Leland Stottlemeyer: FORGET ABOUT THE RUG! THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE RUG! YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE?!? DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE? You're the world's best marriage counselor! You could save every marriage in California! All people would have to do is live with you for two days! Two days, and they'd never complain about their spouse again!

Leland Stottlemeyer: Adrian Monk, have you studied the room?
Monk: Yes, I have.
Leland Stottlemeyer: Have you formed an opinion about the cause of Miles Holling's death?
Monk: Yes, I have.
Leland Stottlemeyer: And what is your opinion, Adrian Monk?
Monk: He... was murdered. [into Stottlemeyer's cell phone] He was murdered, Karen.
Karen Stottlemeyer: I knew it!
Leland Stottlemeyer: Sweetheart? I'm gonna strangle Monk, and then I'll call you right back.
