in the lower lobby of the film center,

night when I saw the promo for the
upcoming episode "Mr. Monk
and the T.V. Star" I was the
teeniest bit mortified that Sarah

Are you going to direct any Monk?
I hope so, but it would have to
be an episode that I was light in.
You know like, if I got abducted
or something like that and I didn't
have to appear in every scene.
What was your favorite episode to
