** Just the moment Monk says "[[TranquilFury Are you making fun of Trudy?]]" You ''know'' someone's going to get their ass kicked.

* From the episode in which Monk gets his badge back is the confrontation with Mikhail Almonov, who murdered SFPD officer Russell [=DiMarco=]. While Monk does fall for a HaveYouToldAnyoneElse moment, what happens afterward is all sorts of awesome - when Mikhail tries to drop him from the scaffold by tilting and shaking it, Monk pulls himself up from the bottom, stabs said guy in the leg with his badge, and then throws away his pistol before suspending him upside down from the scaffold, all while terrified by being many stories off the ground.

* "Mr. Monk Is Up All Night:" Randy stopping criminals while dressed in Captain America [=PJs=]. While drunk. With a garbage pan lid for a shield. The only reason it works is that the criminals are still trying to figure out how to react when the proper, non-drunk cops show up.
* "Mr. Monk Goes Camping:" In the span of a few seconds, Randy goes from being unarmed and sneaking up on Luke and Del Johnston to holding a rifle in his hands and forcing them both to surrender. Moments like these we realize why he's still a cop...

** This deserves elaboration. Leland's wife Karen has been hospitalized after someone shot a tow truck driver, causing the truck to swerve into the path of her oncoming van, and she collided with the car the truck was transporting. Despite Monk identifying Coker as the guy who committed the shooting, as well as shot another truck driver at the truck depot, they are unable to find the evidence needed to arrest Coker: the MacGuffin that Coker was after (the car was his, and it was being repossessed; he was trying to grab a pistol he had stashed in the glovebox that connected him to another crime), and a pair of shoes that he took off the driver (as Coker hadn't had time to get his shoes on before racing out the door with his rifle to shoot the driver). Monk then hears a garbage truck being loaded and realizes that today is garbage day, and ''runs after the garbage truck, jumps on and flings the bags out of it''. After a few minutes of searching, they find one garbage bag containing the pistol and the driver's shoes.

* Monk's first case, as described by Stottlemeyer: A woman had supposedly committed suicide by overdosing on pills. Stottlemeyer called it suicide, every cop on the scene called it suicide, the ''medical examiner'' called it suicide. Monk walked in, took one look at the room, and called it murder. There was no water in the room, so the victim could not possibly have consumed the large pills by herself. Eight people were in that room, only one noticed that detail. As Stottlemeyer put it:
-->'''Stottlemeyer:''' There is only one Adrian Monk.

* In ''Mr. Monk and the Blue Flu'', Monk and Natalie are put in charge of the homicide division of the SFPD by the mayor. The mentally-impaired detectives he has all get some awesome moments, but especially Jack Wyatt, when he does a ShootTheHostage ploy on a serial killer captured in a SWAT raid.

**Points go out to
Jack Wyatt, when when, during a SWAT raid that captures serial killer Charlie Herrin, he does executes a ShootTheHostage ploy on when Herrin tries to use Monk as a serial killer captured in a human shield.
