Gambling, spending time with her daughter Julie. [1], Sharona's childhood is only mentioned during a session with Dr. Kroger in the season 3 episode "Mr. Monk and the Girl Who Cried Wolf". In 'Mr Monk and the girl who cried wolf' you can see that very well: Varla Davis is just like "you're crazy, grow up" whenever Adrian asks for something. Monk and he needs somebody addressing him by his first name, in my opinion. This gave their scenes more of an interesting tension and dynamism. I've read of many people who said 'I've just watched 08×10 and Natalie was so much better than Sharona!'. Her relationship with Monk is a lot more personal than the one he has with pretty much everyone else. Both of these crossovers highlight the differences between Natalie and Sharona, where Natalie tends to be more accepting of Monk's compulsions whereas Sharona tries to force Monk to adapt. Goals Yeah, I'm sad it's going to be over ): There's no way they will hook up, that would just be weird, and even if she develops feelings, Monk will always love Trudy. When he had Sharona, he thought she was irreplaceable, and in his heart she still is. During the course of the investigation, Monk proves to be an honorable and kind man who'd make for a much better employer than the bar owner she worked for at the time, and she becomes Monk's assistant. Furthermore, Schram worked in several movies and TV series, particularly, famous for her role of a divorced licensed vocational nurse, Sharon Fleming, in mystery TV series, Monk.She shared the screen with Tony Shalhoub, Jason Gray-Stanford, and Ted Levine.Her performance in the movie helped her to get nominated for the Golden Globe Award. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast. It was always nice to see her push back on Monk. ", "you're going to be a great cop" or "nobody's smarter than you". Her father, Douglas, owned a hardware store and died when she was a child. She can be tough, but she deeply cares for Adrian. [7] In this episode, Sharona returns to San Francisco after the death of her little-known uncle Howard Fleming (who Monk believes, correctly, was murdered). I know I will. Remember, "there's an old saying: 'don't change anything ever.'". She meets Natalie Teeger, Monk's new assistant, and it seems that they are going to get along until it is revealed that Monk paid Sharona $20 a week more than Natalie. However, Natalie refused to live the upper- crust life of her family or accept any kind of financial support from them, preferring to get by and make a living on her own. When Benjy was one, she did some nude modeling under a pseudonym in Atlantic City, revealed to Monk in that episode when Dexter Larsen threatens to publish these photos to keep Monk from investigating him further. She saved my life. The characters seem to get along better. In this episode she explained what she had been doing since she left. Monk was in a catatonic state for three and a half years until Sharona began taking care of him. Sharona was limiting, and presented herself poorly with clients (she dressed pretty tacky and talked quite tacky/classless). So, I'm on Season 8 episode 3 atm. [4] In the season 1 episode "Mr. Monk Meets Dale the Whale", Dale "the Whale" Biederbeck asks Sharona if she is "still making house calls," to which Sharona replies that "she doesn't do that kinda stuff anymore," implying that at one point she used her LPN training to do home health care.[5]. Natalie allowed Monk to grow, and encouraged it. And the mystery doesn't really matter because it's just fun to see everyone interact. I, too, enjoyed the episode where she returned. We were introduced to Natalies family a few times, and details about her life in high school and college (Sharona didn't finish h.s.).
