* In "Mr. Monk Goes to Mexico," Sharona and Monk head to a resort full of rich kids in the country during Spring Break to get some information from one college student in particular. The kid in question turns out to be a JerkJock frat boy who propositions Sharona when he sees her. To get the necessary info, the student suggests a drinking contest: Monk and Sharona versus him and one of his friends--whoever finishes a full pitcher of beer first wins. Monk's naturally no help (he spends the first fifteen seconds pouring a glass so the foam is even), so Sharona grabs the pitcher, throws her head back, and ''chugs the entire thing'' without drawing breath--and then she finishes Monk's glass, too! That's right--Sharona outdrinks ''two'' college age frat guys in their twenties. That is TALENT.
* In "Mr. Monk Goes to Jail," Sharona solves the case at hand on her own, with no input from Monk. When Monk tries to tell everyone what happened, Sharona announces "I know, I already did the whole summation!"

* In the season two finale "Mr. Monk Goes to Jail," Murder of the Week [[spoiler: Sylvia Fairbourne]] has hired several inmates to try to kill Monk. He's been lured into the laundry room, where he holds them off with the sprayer from one of the sinks. Apparently, obsessive cleanliness comes in handy occasionally.

occasionally.
** In the same episode, Monk goes undercover as a prisoner to solve the case, as Dale "the Whale" Biederbeck has hired him by promising to share everything he knows about Trudy's death in exchange for having his name cleared (Dale's an inmate in the same prison and can't have a window installed in his cell until the murderer is found). Monk's put in the same cell as "Spider" Rudner, an inmate who's murdered four people and ended up in solitary for putting a guy's head through a wall. Why? The guy ''touched his stuff.'' Everyone is naturally convinced that Monk's a dead man, but whenever anyone doubts him, he says the same thing: "It's for Trudy." That pure determination and dedication even wins Spider over--he and Monk become friends, with Spider saving Monk's life and Monk promising to put in a good word at the parole hearing fifty years from now.

** In the same episode, Monk's cellmate Spider (played by living incarnation of awesome Creator/DannyTrejo) pulls a BigDamnHeroes moment for the ages when he takes out three Neo-Nazi skinheads who had been hired to kill the detective.

* Monk studying the mummified body of a prehistoric man for a few seconds before saying "I think I know what happened." Yes, proving that [[MysteryMagnet every single corpse Monk walks by has died of murder]].

* Monk's first case, as described by Stottlemeyer in "Mr. Monk and the Carnival": 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, and only Monk noticed it.

** "Mr. Monk Makes a Friend": figuring out Monk's new PoisonousFriend Hal Tucker is using him because he knew that Tim Hayden was pistol-whipped instead of shot (due to the firing pin being worn out).
