** Stottlemeyer gets one in the same episode. A man wearing Monk's suit dies (his suitcases had been stolen when he and Sharona first arrived), and the captain is informed of the news. Though heartbroken, he immediately begins planning Monk's funeral, and tells Disher that he wants Adrian to be buried with full police honors, including everyone in their dress blues. When Randy nervously tells Stottlemeyer that technically, Monk is no longer on the force and can't receive that sort of service, Stottlemeyer [[BerserkButton instantly becomes furious]] and tells Disher that if Monk ''isn't'' given the burial he deserves, the captain will personally go to the mayor and resign. Stottlemeyer is often TheStoic and a calm foil to Monk's foibles, so to see him get so riled up and be willing to risk everything for his friend is amazing.

** It's also awesome in the [[TheDogBitesBack retribution]] [[AndThisIsFor factor]]. First, she's avenging her trainer, who Natashi had killed for knowing too much. Second, she's avenging Sharona, who was further traumatized by said-murder during an attempt to overcome her fear of elephants. Lastly, Bindi's avenging herself for being used by Natasha as [[AnimalAssassin an unwitting tool to commit the murder in the first place]].

** Monk gets one for solving the case in the episode while severely dehydrated. He was fearful of drinking the water in a foreign country and packed entire cases of the only brand of water he drinks in his suitcase, but since they were stolen, he spends the whole episode without taking a sip of anything. After almost 48 hours, he's absolutely miserable and barely functioning...and he ''still'' manages to crack the case and expose the murderer.

* 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.

* In "[[Recap/MonkS2E14MrMonkAndTheCaptainsWife Mr. Monk and the Captain's Wife]]", Leland's wife Karen has been hospitalized after Coker shoots 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.

* In "Mr. Monk Stays in Bed", when Natalie is taken hostage by a criminal and brought to the dump in order to find a piece of evidence that could get him convicted, Monk manages to come in, tackle the guy, and then beats him down with trash long enough for the police to arrive. Oh yeah, and at the time Monk also happened to be ''sick and wearing nothing but his pajamas and bathrobe at the time''.
** Just to elaborate, Monk. Weaponizing ''garbage'', his true nemesis. And succeeding.
