As Melvin shows them some classic Hollywood history, Tom gets a panicked phone call from Bea: Monk has gone missing at the beach! Tom, Ally, Bea, Pete and Melvin form a search party to find Monk, but Venice Beach is no place for a monkey puppet to get lost. Later, Al (Ed Begley, Jr.) and Kitty (Carrie Aizley) throw a farewell party for Tom, which leads to the discovery of more dark secrets - and a turning point in Tom's relationship with Ally.
