“The Big Salad” (Season 6)
Meal of destruction: The big salad
In the rare event that world-renowned cheapskate George Costanza does a monetary favor for you, you’d better at least acknowledge it. When his girlfriend Julie (Michelle Forbes) accepts Elaine’s big salad from Monk's—and even worse, accepts Elaine’s thank you—it drives him crazy to the point of awkwardly clarifying that he indeed put up the cash. Naturally, as soon as Julie finds out what kind of guy she’s dealing with, they’re done.
