MR. MONK IS THE BEST MAN (#816)
EPISODE PREMIERE: November 13, 2009
The investigation continues at police headquarters, where Stottlemeyer pulls Monk aside and asks him to be his best man. Monk says yes. Stottlemeyer gives Monk T.K.’s wedding ring, and Monk swears he’ll hold onto it tightly until the wedding. T.K. enters. She’s looking for her maid of honor, Stephanie Briggs, who was arrested the night before for speeding.
Stottlemeyer arranges for Stephanie’s release, and they go to the impound lot to get her car. Stephanie explains that she was only speeding to get to the caterers before they closed. Stephanie has Stottlemeyer’s tux in her car, which he gratefully takes from her.
At home, Monk is taking his role as best man seriously. He’s planning the bachelor party, and he won’t let go of the wedding ring for a second. Across town, Stottlemeyer and T.K. return from a date. When they open the door to Stottlemeyer’s place, they see that it’s been ransacked!
Later, Natalie and Stephanie work on the seating chart in T.K.’s apartment while T.K. tries on her wedding gown. She looks amazing, but she confesses to Natalie and Stephanie that she was so scared after the break-in that she almost called off the wedding. She’s not sure she can be a cop’s wife.
