* In "Mr. Monk and the Game Show" we finally get to meet Trudy's parents. The audience is ready for them to be mean to Adrian or to hate him, maybe even blame him for Trudy's death. Instead, Trudy's parents care for Monk greatly and treat him warmly and kindly, to the point that Trudy's father 100% goes along with Adrian's investigation and never once doubts him (though this primarily has to do with the fact that Dwight already suspected his game show host Roddy Lankman was helping Val Birch cheat, and asked for Monk's help to figure out ''how'' and ''why'').

* There's a scene where Natalie gets a cut on her knee while snorkeling and nasty sunburn on her back. When Monk sees her, his instinct is to immediately start applying medical treatment. He sets aside his own anxieties to treat her injury. Monk doesn't just sterilize and bandage her cut. He also applies ointment to Natalie's sunburned back.
* Monk telling a moving story to Natalie about Trudy's security blanket. Though it turns out to be a story he used as a trap to incriminate Dylan Swift (who is listening in), he says with enough emotion that it sounds genuine. Of course, he's actually talking his mother's security blanket.

* In "Mr. Monk Takes a Punch," Monk figures out that boxer Ray Regis [[ThrowingTheFight took a dive]] in the previous heavyweight title fight to pay for a series of experimental operations to save his trainer Louie Flynn's daughter Rebecca. But when Monk talks to Regis in private and informs him that he's aware of it, Monk reveals that he promises not to tell anyone else about this because he believes Regis and Louie had done the right thing[[note]]telling anyone that Ray had indeed thrown the fight would have likely [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor ended his boxing career prematurely]][[/note]]. Regis is grateful enough to help Monk train in preparation for an upcoming fitness test.

* The story greatly builds on Monk and Natalie's chemistry.

* The scene in "Mr. Monk Goes to a Wedding" where Stottlemeyer checks up on Monk while Natalie and Randy are in Pebble Beach. The scene itself captures Stottlemeyer's friendship with Monk perfectly (it says a lot that he knows exactly where to look for Monk's wedding album):
-->'''Adrian Monk:''' She was... ''wow''.
-->'''Captain Leland Stottlemeyer:''' Beautiful.
-->'''Adrian Monk:''' I remember, during the service she was crying so hard, she couldn't even say the words "I do". Have you ever seen anybody cry so much?
-->'''Captain Leland Stottlemeyer:''' That was you, Monk. And no, I have not.

* When the summation is being given. Monk actually lets Natalie deliver parts of the summation. Her narration says, "Somehow he knew I was capable of solving this murder on m own and that was what he was making me do. He was guiding me the way a good, understanding teacher would with a promising student. It may have been the kindest, most sensitive thing he had ever done for me."

Monk reluctantly goes along, and he first attempts to have Julie play along with him to make it seem like she understands, so that Natalie will be satisfied. But when Julie breaks down crying, Monk opens up for real about what his feelings for Trudy were like.
