BREAD AND BUTTER
Former police detective Adrian Monk has suffered from intensified obsessive-compulsive disorder and a variety of phobias since the murder of his wife, Trudy, in 1997. Despite his photographic memory and his amazing ability to piece tiny clues together, he is now on psychiatric leave from the San Francisco Police Department. Aided by his friend and practical nurse, Sharona Fleming, Monk works as a freelance detective/consultant, hoping to convince his former boss, Captain Stottlemeyer, to allow him to return to the force. While Monk may be her 'bread and butter,' sometimes even Sharona can get fed up with all of his excentricities. But there are times...few and far between...when a feeling seems to growing between them. Could there possibly be more to their relationship than just sani-wipes?
