"Mr. Monk's 100th Case" is the seventh episode of the seventh season of Monk, and is the 100th episode overall. It brought about the reunion of various actors and actresses who had previously starred in the USA Network show.


The documentary show In Focus is airing a special about legend Adrian Monk. It follows the "defective detective" as he solves his 100th case. Several models begin to turn up dead around San Francisco, and Monk is called by Stottlemeyer and Disher to help investigate. Meanwhile, several people are interviewed about the personal life of Monk, including (characters are listed with the other episodes they appear in):

Monk, while investigate the murders, discovers that the models all had one thing in common: they were all photographed by Douglas Thurman. Thurman is arrested, but the police are forced to let him go without sufficient evidence. By the time they have it, Thurman has committed suicide. Later, while watching the tape of the In Focus episode, Monk notices that one of the models was actually murdered by someone else. It turns out that it was James Novak, the man reporting on Monk. He was having an affair with a model, and killed her and framed Thurman to cover it up. He is arrested, and Monk has solved his 100th case.

Later, Monk decides to retire, as 100 is a "good time to quit." However, Natalie convinces him that, because the fourth model was killed by someone else, he had already solved his 101st case, and would have to make it to 200 before being able to quit for good.

Synopsis: A television news magazine called “In Focus” is airing a profile of Monk, and Monk is at the home of the show’s host, James Novak, for a viewing party. Natalie, Stottlemeyer, and Disher are all there to celebrate Monk’s big television debut. “In Focus” follows Monk as he tries to solve his one hundredth case, and the show is interspersed with interviews of Monk’s friends, family, and even some of the criminals he’s helped put away over the years.

As shown on “In Focus,” the case begins when Monk is called to investigate the death of an aspiring actress who’s been strangled to death in the lobby of her apartment building. Monk notices that the victim’s lipstick is missing from her purse, and after some more investigation, he deduces that the victim knew the person who killed her.

Unfortunately, there are no leads in the case, and days later another young actress is murdered, also strangled. Again, there are no signs of forced entry, and again the victim’s lipstick is missing. The two victims both worked at the same restaurant, but a trip to the establishment turns up nothing. The case continues to confound when a third young woman turns up dead. It’s another actress, killed the same way, but there appears to be no connection between this latest victim and the previous two. Then, Monk makes a keen observation: all three women had head-shot photos taken by the same photographer, a man named Douglas Thurman.
