Is this a real episode of 'Monk' or did we make it up?

Mr. Monk and the title quiz


Image: The Everett Collection

Much like how he conducts his detective work, Monk has a peculiarly and specific way when it comes to titling episodes throughout the series. Typically starting with "Mr. Monk and..." you always get a quick glimpse at what your favorite detective with an obsessive-compulsive disorder is going to be up to for that episode.

But can you tell the difference between a real
Monk episode title and a fake one? Put your detective hat on and test your knowledge!

  1. ‘Mr. Monk and the Very, Very Old Man’
  2. 'Mr. Monk Goes to the Moon'
  3. 'Mr. Monk and the Cat'
  4. 'Mr. Monk and the UFO'
  5. 'Mr. Monk is the Best Man'
  6. Mr. Monk gets Married'
  7. 'Mr. Monk is Dead'
  8. 'Mr. Monk and the Dog'
  9. 'Mr. Monk goes to the Beach'
  10. 'Mr. Monk runs a Marathon'
  11. 'Mr. Monk goes to Jail'
  12. 'Mr. Monk and the Clown'

Is this a real episode of 'Monk' or did we make it up?

9/12 thumbs down on me because I love Monk and have seen most/all episodes multiple times.

11/12 but it should’ve been 12/12 I’m a real Monk fan… But it wasn’t “Mr. Monk runs a Marathon“ it was “Mr. Monk and the marathon man.” Actually these Monk quizzes are the only ones I do well on because it’s a show I watch a lot.

The marathon man episode almost tricked me, but I remembered, so 12 of 12.

9/12 I'm filing a protest on #10. I know there was an episode where Monk ran in a marathon.

8/12, not bad, considering I don't watch Monk. 💁‍♀️

Mr. Monk is Dead I got wrong because I do know that they faked that Captain Stottlemeyer shot him in one show and I don't know the name of that episode. And I thought that the episode with the nudist beach might have been titled "Mr. Monk goes to the beach"...oh well I guess I'd better take a better look at the episode guide.

The episode was called “Mr. Monk is on the run” and it was in two parts

Dear MeTV: Please stop trying to make 'fetch' happen.

Signed, All of Us who think the show Monk isn't old enough to be 'classic' TV. 😘
