any more soap? that's it. no, i mean is there any more soap in san francisco? mr. monk, you've been scrubbing your hand for nine hours. i'm surprised you have any skin left. it's not coming out. agh, i can still feel it. i think it's spreading. what are you doing? is that kerosene? ah! light me. what? for the love of god, light me! okay, mr. monk, i'm not gonna light your hand on fire. fine. aaaaa-- you know what? you know what, get out-- you are overreacting, all right? all you did was shake a man's hand. [sighs] you're right. you know what? i'm glad it happened. the worst possible thing that could ever happen to me has happened. i shook hands... with a leper. and i survived.
6:09 pm
exactly. worst moment of my life is behind me now. i'm free. [laughing] wait. okay, now i'm free. um, actually... mr. monk, it's not completely over. uh, don't be mad. but i talked to mr. bronson. you did what? what?! he called here this morning. the leper?! he called me? on what phone? on this-- on this phone? yeah. mr. monk, you can't catch anything over the phone. oh, uh, and now, all of the sudden, you're an expert on lepers? okay. you know what, mr. monk? he's a nice man, all right? he's in pain. he was crying his eyes out. oh, god. and--okay, listen to me. he upped his offer. he said he would pay you $25,000. all you have to do is meet him again. natalie, listen. listen. look. let me explain something to you. no! that's it?
6:10 pm
that's your argument? okay, let's go through it. a, whatever he's asking us to do is probably illegal. b through z, the man is a leper! you know what? i don't know anything about leprosy, and neither do you. so i called a doctor. he's a specialist. he said we could come in and talk with him. let's just see what he recommends, okay? i mean, it can't hurt to listen, right? $25,000. [phone ringing] [inhales deeply] you okay? are you holding your breath? [ringing continues] [air spurts out] is that randy? oh, my god. that is so funny. not funny in a "ha, ha" way, but funny in an "oh, boy,
6:11 pm
"this'll really embarrass him" way. [laughing] miss teeger? sorry to keep you waiting. i'm-- i'm dr. polanski. hi. hi. so--so nice to meet you. uh, this is my boss. this is adrian monk. thank you for seeing us. it won't take much of your time. oh, i'm sorry to hear that. [giggling] oh, doctor. can i ask you one thing? certainly. right over here. go ahead. is that randy disher? yeah, randy was one of my first patients. do you know him? uh, i know randy disher. i don't know that kid. well, you know, teen years. i don't know how any of us survived it. [chuckling] we can talk over here. come on. mr. monk. you're not gonna catch anything in here. promise. come on. now. what can i do for you? could you explain to my friend that leprosy is a serious condition? it's very contagious. well, actually, that's a common misconception. see?
6:12 pm
for one thing, it's not called leprosy anymore. it's called hansen's disease. it's quite rare. most people are naturally immune to it. and if you do happen to contract it, it's easily treatable with an antibiotic called halazzen. see, i've been talking to this man. he wants to hire us. but he's allergic to halazzen. yes, that does happen. is his condition full-blown? oh, yes. ohhh, yes. ye--yes, yes. yes, full-blown. fullll... blown! sir? full-blown. i don't think you have to worry. as i said, it's not very contagious. i've been practicing for 15 years. i've only seen one case first-hand. i can't do it. i just--i-- i can't do it. well, how about this? if you do contract the disease... i'll treat you for free. the hell are you talking about? how 'bout this? we never call the guy back. we don't see him again. i avoid him like the plague. yeah, you know what? exactly like the plague. you know what? could i just talk to you for a second, please?
6:13 pm
just excuse us. please. okay. mr. monk. did you hear what he just said? no. he said it's almost impossible to catch. yeah. in that sentence, for me, the word "almost" is really the most interesting word. okay, mr. bronson has an affliction. he needs our compassion and understanding. you know what? let me let you in on a little secret, mr. monk. you're no picnic, either. a lot of people would rather not deal with you, but they do. they reach out to you. and mr. bronson is offering us a lot of money to do the same thing, okay? and i've been talking to him. you wouldn't even have to shake his hand. good. good. because i would rather die... than have to shake his hand again. you don't even have to look at him. all you have to do is go back to that bar and sit and listen to what he has to say. you just sit there and listen. stop it. [whispering] stop. [phone ringing] thank you for coming, mr. monk. i was afraid you wouldn't want to see me again. why would you think that? my assistant is over there.
6:14 pm
i know she'd like to meet you. i'm sorry. i can't bear to have a woman see me. not like this. i'm hideous. no. i wouldn't say... hideous, exactly. believe it or not, women used to find me quite attractive. i never went home alone. after i married mandy, i resisted those kind of temptations. at least, i usually resisted them. gah! oh, god. have i offended you? no. no, sorry. you just leaned into the light. sorry. i had an affair. that was my first mistake. she wrote me some letters, which i kept. that was mistake number two. in a week, there'll be a probate hearing. i'll be officially declared dead. the vultures are gonna go through my office,
6:15 pm
reading every file, opening every drawer. they'll find the letters. the letters themselves don't mean anything to me. but they would destroy my wife. mr. monk, i want to hire you to break into my home, find the letters, and bring them back. that's the job? it's still my house. so you wouldn't be breaking any law. why don't you just do it yourself? i tried. i-- i just couldn't do it. that house... that life, everything i've lost. it's just... too painful.
6:16 pm
i've drawn you a map. everything you need-- the layout, the security codes. i just have one question. why me? i'm not a thief. exactly. you're an honorable man. you won't turn around and try to blackmail me. mr. monk, i am at your mercy. i'm reaching out to you. that's okay. i get it. you don't have to really...reach. i get it. will you help me? so what happened? i took the job.

i'm already over. well, it's too wobbly. look, it's all wobbly. i can't climb this. why is it so wobbly? how did you do that? i opened the gate. good thinking. okay, hold the ladder. no, mr. monk, the gate is open. natalie, look. these are the leper's instructions. i promised him i would follow them to a tee. we nodded on it. well, i'm using the gate. okay, but don't tell the leper. [alarm beeps] the leper was right. she never changed the locks. wait! wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. he said it's kinda tricky. he says you have to slide it. (monk) okay. here's the code. 2, 4, 6, 2.

6:24 pm
derek? he's alive? [gasps] is he okay? well... "okay" is a funny word. so you've seen him? most of him. where is he? can you take me to him? mrs. bronson, you need to trust us. there are reasons why your husband cannot see you. what, because of these? these don't mean a thing. i've known about this girl for years. please. i have to see him. that's not a good idea. yeah, no. trust us. or i can have you both arrested right now for breaking and entering. (monk) over here. (derek) mr. monk? miss-- miss teeger. did you get the letters? derek.
6:25 pm
mandy. you're alive? i knew it. i always knew it. you're wrong, darling. i died seven years ago. (mandy) are you looking for these? oh, mandy. she didn't mean anything to me. i know that, derek. i've known about this woman for years. i forgave you a long, long time ago. no, please. stay away. it's okay. it's okay. let me see you. i just want you to come home. i can't. not like this. go away. forget about me. darling, there are doctors, treatments. there must be something they can do. you don't think i've tried? i've gone to every doctor in europe. no one would have to see you. you could stay inside.

[ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke -- and personally that's what i knew i needed. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation,
6:30 pm
depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. these are the reasons i quit smoking.

when you pour chunky beef with country vegetables soup over it... you can do dinner. four minutes, around four bucks. campbell's chunky. it's amazing what soup can do. when this hearing was originally scheduled, the intention was to have mr. bronson officially declared deceased. but, as you all know, some new information has surfaced, provided by his wife mrs. bronson. we have her statement, plus a handwritten letter from mr. bronson. which cannot be authenticated. of course it's not a perfect match. i told you. derek is sick. he could hardly write his own name. that's rather convenient, isn't it? it wasn't just me. mr. monk saw him, too.
6:32 pm
your honor, if i may. mr. monk. is this the man you saw? i believe it is. according to your testimony, you only saw him in a dimly lit bar and a parking garage. hardly ideal conditions. (monk) that's true. well, mr. bronson's nephews have been waiting a long time for this estate to be probated. i'm reluctant to make a decision based on one man's testimony. your honor, adrian monk is not just anyone. his memory and powers of observation are legendary. well, there's a lot at stake here. you say he has a great memory. mr. monk. would you mind standing up and turning around? could you describe my shirt? which one? [chuckling] which one? the shirt you're wearing, or the shirt your stenographer is wearing? that's your shirt, too, isn't it?
6:33 pm
uh-- you cut yourself shaving, and there's a tiny drop of blood on her collar. (judge) what are you implying? you were having a sex affair with her on that couch. the cushions are backwards. and one of her earrings fell off. it's... it's, um... it's right here. she must have torn her blouse. i can see it sticking out of her briefcase. your honor. i'm ready with my decision. i will accept mr. monk's word that he met with derek bronson. therefore, mrs. bronson will retain control of the entire estate.
6:34 pm
how long has mr. steiner been living here? 11 years. and he never missed a canasta game in all that time until last night. when was the last time you saw him? monday. i saw him leaving. and he didn't have a gig. i could tell because he didn't take his sheet music. he's a musician. i know he's a musician. he's one of my oldest tenants. you don't think i know he's a musician? mrs. kennedy, relax. when you called the police, you asked for homicide. now, i don't see any evidence of a murder here. he's dead. i know it. the canasta game. plus! i found his cat starving this morning. how do you explain that? okay, uh, why don't you wait downstairs, mrs. kennedy? and we'll take a look around for you. thank you.
