Mr. Monk and the Secret Santa


Episode Info

Monk interrupts its fourth-season schedule to offer this special Christmas episode, in which Monk (Tony Shalhoub) and his friends agree to anonymously exchange "Secret Santa" presents at the annual police department Christmas party. One such present is quite a surprise for Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine)--a bottle of poisoned wine intended for him but delivered by mistake to another detective, who promptly drops dead! Stottlemeyer is convinced that his would-be murderer is vengeance-driven Frank Prager (Gill Gayle), who had earlier taken some shots at the Captain outside a bar. But after a thorough investigation, Monk can't help but feel that Prager is innocent...and that maybe the "accidental" murder victim was the real target all along!
