Playing on a variation from a much earlier episode, HYPNOTIZED has Monk deciding to undergo hypnosis to rid him of his problems. The only problem is, the hypnotherapist Monk sees regresses the defective detective to about age 8. And Monk starts acting accordingly. He still manages to solve a murder case, however. Some of the silliness is OK. It's funny, for instance, when Monk shouts "You're a liar. Liar, liar, pants on fire!" at the wife of the man who was killed. There's also a very poignant moment where Monk swings on a park swing amid a bunch of kids, who are quickly rushed away by their alarmed parents. It doesn't help, of course, that Monk knocks one of the kids down in his rush to grab a swing. Monk does make a new friend: a bullfrog, which he keeps in a shoe box. So long for now, Mr. Monk. See you next season.
