Played with on Monk:
- In "Mr. Monk and the Panic Room," Stottlemeyer and Disher have shown up at Sharona's house to arrest her for abducting the chimpanzee Darwin from an animal shelter. This exchange happens as Randy searches the house:
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Sharona, we know that you took him. Now either you tell us where he is or I'm going to have to take you in. That is the law. [Randy walks out of the living room]
Lt. Randall Disher: [speaking into walkie-talkie] Living room secure. Heading to the kitchen.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Randy, you don't have to use the walkie-talkie. I'm ten feet away!
Lt. Randall Disher: [picks up walkie-talkie as if to speak into it] Roger that.
[puts down the walkie-talkie and continues searching]
- In "Mr. Monk, Private Eye," Monk and Natalie have set up in a new office downtown, as part of Natalie's idea to have Monk go into the private sector. But a long time goes by without any clients showing up. Monk quickly gets bored and restless waiting for someone to come into the office. Natalie is seen sleeping with her head down on her desk when her desk phone suddenly rings, jolting her awake:
Natalie Teeger: Adrian Monk Investigations. What is the nature of your problem?
Adrian Monk: I'm being kept in a room against my will.
Natalie Teeger: You were kidnapped? Uh, do you know who did it?
Adrian Monk: Yes. It's my personal assistant. Her name is Natalie... Teeger. [As he's talking, the camera pans around Natalie to reveal Monk sitting at his desk talking on his own phone]
- In "Mr. Monk Goes to a Rock Concert," Stottlemeyer is searching the concert grounds looking for his runaway son Jared. Then he catches Randy in the act of playing sick. Immediately, he pulls out his cell phone and dials a number. In the foreground, Randy's cell phone rings:
Lt. Randall Disher: [in low voice] Hello?
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Hey, Randy! How're you doing, buddy? I-I was worried about you. [The whole time they are talking, Stottlemeyer slowly creeps up on Randy from behind]
Lt. Randall Disher: Captain?
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Yep?
Lt. Randall Disher: [coughs] What time is it? [beat]
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Oh, I'm sorry! Did I wake you up? [beat] Hey, what's that music I hear?
Lt. Randall Disher: Oh, [coughs] it's my stereo. It's broken! I can't turn it down!
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: It's loud!
Lt. Randall Disher: Listen, Captain, thanks for calling!
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Sure.....
Lt. Randall Disher: Iím going to get up now. I think I should make myself some soup.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Oh, soup? Thatís good. Yeah, fluids are good. Drink plenty of fluids.
Lt. Randall Disher: Fluids. Okay, I will. Thanks for calling, Captain!
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Take care. [Randy hangs up and turns to a woman next to him]
Lt. Randall Disher: [laughs] My boss! [Someone puts a hand on his shoulder. Randy spins around and finds Stottlemeyer glaring at him] Whoa. Captain.
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Lieutenant.
Lt. Randall Disher: Did you, uh, did you call in sick, too?
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: [smiles, mildly amused] No, Randy. I'm looking for Jared.
Lt. Randall Disher: Well, here's what happened with me: I was on my way to a doctor, and uh... I got nothing. Let's go find Jared. [takes one last sip of his beer before setting it down and walking away with Stottlemeyer]
