Can anyone suggest a Monk episode when his OCD really affects him?

Asked by rentluva5256 (555points) May 16th, 2010

I’m presenting a project about OCD and would like to show my class a clip of Monk where his OCD really affects his life. I don’t really know how to further explain this, but if anyone can think of anything, please answer. Thanks!

The one where he was trapped (edit:lost) in the desert.

How did the OCD affect him, though?

@rentluva5256: Definitely look into As Good As It Gets with Jack Nicholson. Several perfect examples in that movie.

He was surrounded by dirt and possible pathogens and was having an anxiety attack. I second Jack also. He’s the master of OCD in that movie.

The pilot is good, he lets the perp get away because of his OCD (course, then, in the climax, he helps catch the perp despite his OCD).

I think in season 5, ep 5, Monk is thrown overboard from a boat at sea.
While struggling to stay afloat, he grabs what he thinks is a life preserver.
When he gets a better look at it, he realizes to his horror that it’s a toilet seat.
Even though the seat has enough buoyancy to serve as a flotation device, he throws it away and resumes drowning.

There is a scene (I think it is when Natalie is running for office) where they are in her house and Monk put a mailbomb in the fridge and then has to go back to rearrange things.

I think it’s the one when the garbage men go on strike, and the garbage wasn’t picked up and it was everywhere.
He was like, out of control.

I can’t remember what season it was in though… |:
