* UnwittingPawn: Randy gets fooled by his girlfriend into revealing Monk's location to the hitmen.

Randy realizes belatedly that he caused the danger in question when the hitmen show up.


* NiceJobBreakingItHero: It was Randy who sent the hitmen right to Monk's hiding spot. To be fair: a) his girlfriend (who was a member of the gang) manipulated him into doing so via making him believe him being fortune cookies, and b) the fortune cookies the (gang-owned) restaurant gave him were very, very accurate (because the gang wrote the predictions and then made them happen, and the third prediction was actually about Monk getting into danger).

* TheSummation: Monk and Randy are trapped in the Willowby cabin, as two thugs with automatic rifles are firing at them from outside, pinning them down. Under fire, Randy looks at a fortune cookie that lured him here, and Monk notices scorch marks around a power outlet. They shout in perfect unison, "Oh my god! I've got it! Here's what happened!" Then they dive into their separate summations, which overlap and the black-and-white flashbacks jump back and forth.

** Stottlemeyer cites this as the reason that he goes along to the cabin because he doesn't trust the FBI agent assigned to protect Monk. The same unit had several witnesses killed under their watch, and the locals know the place as the FBI cabin. Agent Grooms doesn't inspire that much confidence, with how he can't blend in with the locals and disconnects the phone when Monk tries to prove a murder happened right next door. At the end, however, he manages to shoot two of the hitmen that arrive to kill Monk.
