The sixth-season opener of Monk finds obsessive-compulsive consulting detective Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub) in full "paranoia" mode as he tries to elude his biggest fan Marci Maven (Sarah Silverman), who details his every move in her own "Monk" website. Marci insists that her idol help clear her pet dog Otto of a posthumous murder charge: Otto is accused of killing a neighbor, each though the mutt died three days before the neighbor did. Try as he might to steer clear of Marci, Monk must concede defeat when the persistent woman wins his detective services at a charity auction. In his efforts to wrap the case as quickly as possible, Monk tries to prove that the dog was framed...a task that would have been a lot easier had not an important fact about the dead neighbor's husband completely slipped Marci's mind.

Real-life rap artist Snoop Dog guests in this episode as fictional rapper Murderuss, who is accused of killing his musical rival Extra Large (Marcello Thedford). Monk (Tony Shalhoub) does his best to clear Murderuss, but all the circumstantial evidence is against the singer: his trademark pocket watch was used to trigger the bomb that wiped out Extra Large, and Murderuss' famous gold chain was used to strangle the first victim's chauffeur. Before long, even Monk is persuaded of Murderuss' guilt--but he's afraid to drop the case for fear of incurring the rapper's rath--er, wrath. The solution to the crime...comes in a the nick of time.

Despite his lifelong phobia regarding naked people, Monk (Tony Shalhoub) agrees to investigate a murder at a nudist beach. His discomfort amongst the "au naturel" crowd almost leads Monk to align himself with the chief suspect, software billionaire Peter Magneri (Alfred Molina), who has been trying to rezone the beach and kick the nudists out. As the story rolls on, Monk ends up hotly pursuing the wrong suspect, Chance Singer (Diedrich Bader), a mistake which may prove fatal unless the detective can get back on the right track by tracing the root cause of his "nude-o-phobia."

Introduced in the previous episode "Mr. Monk, Private Eye", attractive realtor Linda Fusco (Sharon Lawrence) is now the girlfriend of Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine). This fact makes it all the more difficult for Monk (Tony Shalhoub) to pursue his theory that Linda is responsible for the death of her business partner. The fact that Monk would even entertain such a thought causes a rift between himself and Stottlemeyer--one that may prove irreparable when Linda tries to seduce Monk. This remarkable episode flies in the face of conventional TV-series wisdom, which dictates that a recurring character accused of murder is obviously innocent.

While investigating the likelihood that sports agent Rob Sherman (Vincent Ventresca) is a murderer, Monk (Adrian Monk) is sidetracked by Julie (Emmy Clarke), the daughter of his caregiver Natalie (Traylor Howard). Currently entangled in a bumpy romance with boyfriend Tim (Andrew James Allen), Julie asks Monk's advice on matters of the heart. Though Monk would just as soon focus on the job at hand, he decides to help Julie out--a decision which proves to be a wise one when a custom-made T-shirt owned by Tim turns out to be a vital clue in solving the murder for which Sherman is suspected.

Monk's shrink Dr. Kroger (Stanley Kamel) is having trouble with his son Tony (Cody McMains), who has been hanging out with the wrong crowd. Thus, when Tony and two of his friends approach Monk with a treasure map which they claim is part of a school project, Monk (Tony Shalhoub) agrees to help them go treasure-hunting, thinking that this is a swell way to keep the boy out of trouble. What Monk doesn't know is that the kids stole the map from the body of a dead man--and that the decedent had been involved in a bank robbery. Before the final fadeout, Monk's well-meaning efforts to straighten Tony out have resulted in a perilous predicament wherein the notoriously claustrophobic detective is buried alive.

Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is outraged by the news that his longtime rival Harold Krenshaw (Tim Bagley), the "pet" patient of Monk's psychiatrist Dr. Kroger (Stanley Kamel), is actually the Frisco Fly, a masked daredevil who has become a folk hero by clambering around the San Francisco skyscrapers. Especially vexing is the fact that Harold is deathly afraid of heights--and that if he is indeed the Frisco Fly, it would prove that he's been making more progress with his phobias than Monk has. But as it turns out, Harold has been set up as a (literal) fall guy by the person who has murdered the real "Frisco Fly"...a murder which Monk happens to be investigating even as we speak.

Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is consumed with guilt when Max Barton (Tim De Zarn), a man he'd sent to prison 14 years earlier on a robbery-murder charge, is released on the basis of new DNA evidence. Feeling responsible for Max's long incarceration, Monk tries to help him readjust to the outside world, and to be reunited with his ex-wife Sherry (Nancy Mette). Meanwhile, Max has a fatal confrontation with his former partner--and though Monk doesn't realize it until it is almost too late, it turns out that even modern crimesolving technology can sometimes lead one down the proverbial garden path.

Following a chance meeting with a woman whom he's certain he has met before, Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is unable to sleep. After several slumberless hours, Monk decides to go for a nocturnal walk...only to see the same woman again. Shortly thereafter, Monk witnesses a murder during a botched drug deal, but when he is unable to prove that anything actually went down, it is assumed that he is imagining things because of sleep deprivation. Things get curiouser and curiouser when the so-called murder victim turns up alive. Thus, Monk finds himself in mental overload as he not only tries to solve a murder that may have not been a murder, but also figure out the identity (and significance) of that ubiquitous "mystery woman".

Monk (Tony Shalhoub) becomes a social pariah when he is forced to shoot down a man dressed as a Santa Claus suit. Though he insists he acted in self defense, Monk is unable to convince the public that he was merely getting even with "Santa" for tying up traffic and making him late for an apartment. The flames of hostility against Monk are fueled by local reporter Brandy Barber (Gina Philips), who hopes to parlay this bizarre story into a national assignment. In his efforts to clear his name, Monk unearths a conspiracy to steal a priceless diamond--and places himself in the unenviable position of drawing his weapon against Santa for a second time.
