Did somebody die? - Somebody we know? - It's not homicide.
Nobody was hurt.

- Not guilty, your Honor.
The state moves for the prisoner to be remanded until trial without bail.
Your Honor, my client is not a flight risk.
He's a former Police Officer.
He served the city of San Francisco honorably for 14 years.
He still has friends in the department, some of whom are here today.
I should also point out that, even if he wanted to flee, my client doesn't drive.
He also has an obsessive fear of airplanes And boats.
And trucks.
And trains.
He's not going anywhere.
Your honor, on tuesday night, mr.
Monk somehow overcame his fears to board a bus and travel 95 miles to angel county.
His record of service is impressive.
But even more impressive is the mountain of evidence against him.
Mr.
Monk's motive is clear.
He was obsessed with the victim Frank Nunn.
- That's not good.
- Furthermore, mr.
Monk has admitted under oath that he owned the gun.
That he took the gun from his house.
That he carried it to the crime scene.
- And that it never left his possession.
- That's not good.
And we will introduce ballistic evidence which will prove that Mr.
Monk's gun.
The gun that came from this house, the gun that never left his hand.
Is the same weapon that fired the fatal bullet.
It's all circumstantial.
The bullet definitely came from his gun.
It's been tested by two different laboratories.
Bail is set at $900,000.
With the court's permission, could you make it an even million? Oh, my god.
What do you think? - What do you think? - What do you think? Right now, i'm afraid to think.
He can't go to prison.
He can barely survive out here.
Okay, there's gonna be a trial.
I mean, if he gets a good lawyer, right? But all the evidence.
You heard the Judge.
The bullet came from his gun.
Monk said he didn't do it.
That's funny.
This is the kind of case Monk always solves.
You know, not funny, "ha ha" funny.
You know, more like Not funny at all funny.
Monk It wasn't me.
Cap, it wasn't me.
Sheriff, excuse us.
Thank you.
I thought about it.
I almost did it.
But I didn't pull the trigger.
You believe me, right? We'll worry about that later.
Right now, we gotta get you out of here.
Now, your bail's been set at a million, even.
We need 10% of that.
Now, I can mortgage my town house.
I could sell my car.
I'm leasing, so - Let's go.
Van's downstairs.
- One second.
Can I say good-bye? Don't Don't worry about me.
Okay? I mean I'll be okay.
All right.
Let's not get all conjugal here.
We got a long ride ahead of us.
Whew.
Well, I guess we better go too.
Where is my pass? Watch your head.
Cold like that, you should have stayed home.
Can't, I used up all my sick days.
You know how many sick days I've used last ten years? Zero.
Nada.
Well, - You're superman.
I just take care of myself is all.
Don't smoke, on the treadmill every morning.
Drink a quart of juice every day.
O.
j.
, apple, pomegranate.
I plan to live forever.
It'll just seem like forever.
What the That's this? All units, we are on foot in pursuit.
Mile marker 42, heading west.
I need a detailed map of the area.

When last seen, he was handcuffed and on foot.
I want roadblocks at I-17 and Chester avenue.

Ms.
Teeger, your boss is a murder suspect.
Right now, he's acting like a very guilty murder suspect.
You know him.
You work with him.
Where would he go? It's not a difficult question.
Are you cops or not? Sheriff, he's been spotted.
About three miles west.
Scared a couple campers.
He was going through their campsite.
Good work.
You get a clean shot, bring him down.
Hey! What are you doing? Hey! What are you do? Well a No! Stop! What are you doing? Hey! So he drove around in a circle? I keep the steering wheel locked.
It's called the club.
So he drove around in a circle, got out, ran away.
Well, more of an oval, really.
Like a Like an elliptical.
Circle's fine.
- Just say circle.
- Which way did he go? South.
He's heading home.

- You can't.
You can't call the captain.
- He'd have to bring me in.
- No, not necessarily.
Nat, it's his job, Natalie.
Look, I didn't shoot that man.
- Somebody set me up.
- But the bullet, It came from your gun.
I don't know how they did it or who's behind it.
But I think that note, that coded message, was left for me.
It was bait.
They knew I'd decipher it.
They staged the electronics store break-in to lure me to angel.
If I can get back there, look around that sculpture garden, maybe I can figure it out.
Please Natalie I'm sorry.
Of course I believe you.

He thinks he's gonna try and get in contact with you.
So, I'm supposed to be staking out the place.

You know, I tried to tell Rollins Monk is too smart to come back here.
But nobody listens to me.

Bang.
Bang.
- Anything on those credit cards? - No, sir.
Make sure the hotel rooms are covered.
Double-team the bus stations and the airport.
But he's not going to the airport.
Monk's afraid to fly.
Well, maybe he figures we assume he won't fly, so he heads to the airport.
Yeah, or maybe he knows we assume that he thinks he.
He thinks he knows what, he's.
He knows that we're.
No, wait I'll write it down.
Natalie Teeger.
- We're intercepting her mail.
- On whose authority? Stottlemeyer.
Leland, it's me.
- Monk, thank god.
Are you okay? - Leland, I know who set me up.
- It was that Sheriff.
- Rollins? Why? I don't know why.
I can't figure that out.
But I know how.
Okay, okay, how? How is good.
Let's start with how.
Okay i had some orange juice in my refrigerator.
Okay.
Somebody drank from it.
I thought it was Natalie.
Monk, we haven't got a lot of time here.
I'm talking about Rollins.
It was him.
He's always drinking juice.
I heard him talking about it.
Leland Here's what happened.
He broke into my house the day before the shooting.
And raided your refrigerator? That's right.
Then he drank some orange juice.
About four ounces.
Then he found my handgun.
He switched guns? Not the whole gun, just the barrel.
My gun's a lane & westing.
The barrels are interchangeable.
Right, he used the six-fingered man's prints and the note to lure me to the sculpture garden.
He was hiding there, about 50 feet behind me.
He waited for me to pull my gun, and then he took the shot.
I need you face down on that floor.
He told me to lie on the ground face down.
That's probably when he did it.
You have the right to remain silent.
You have the right to an attorney.
Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
He switched them back.
So when the lab said the bullet came from your gun They were right.
It was my gun.
Ateast part of it.
Okay, can you prove it? Do you have anything else? Okay.
Leland, are you sitting down? I have a plastic tab from a juice container.
D- do you have any fingerprints? Fingerprints? No.
No.
- That's not enough, is it? - No, it's not enough! You okay? Who was that? That was Adrian Monk.
You're kidding.
Nope.
I'm gonna meet him tonight.
I just set it up.
He wants me to bring him some food.
Good work, Captain.
Call the Tac Squad.
He said I should come alone.
Yeah, I'm sure he did.
Can I come? Yeah, sure.
Leland? Hey, buddy! I brought you some chicken pot pies.
Did you hear that? Relax, we're okay.
I told you to come alone.
Are you setting me up, Leland? Monk, I swear.
I told you, I can't go to prison.
I, I can't go! You know I wouldn't survive it.
Just put the gun away.
Monk! Monk! Monk! Monk, please drop the gun!
