* 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.
