    This episode really brought the funny. I almost fell off the couch when Monk was using the cards during his phone call to the power company PR lady (Alicia Coppola was looking mighty fine in this episode). Their date was also pure classic Monk comedy. This was a return to form for Monk.

    Was I seeing things, or was the guy up in the tree, the actor who plays Lewis on Drew Carey?

    Very funny episode (I don't think I have seen a bad one). The scene with the night vision goggles really had me laughting.

    Much better than the last two episodes. I was getted worried for a whiel there. However, Monk still seems to hve a problem that it's had since its inception, which is that it adheres to the law of economy of characters. Basically, Having characters that serve no purpose in the plot in sloppy writing, so the guy who serves no apparent purpose did it.

    This was a better episode than the previous two but I still prefer real mystery episodes season two had - like The Three Pies and the one with missing granny. In this one there really wasn't any mystery. But I loved the dating aspect, it was funny. "Lobby, lobby, lobby..."

    "I laid my cards on the table!"

    Tony Shaloub is a genius actor. I can't imagine anyone else playing that part.

    And, if you get a chance (have it Tivo'd), check out some of the other cards that were on the table. I remember seeing one stack of cards with a topic card that said something to the effect "Organic Wheat Bread", or something like that.
