Monk can't bring himself to tell Sharona about what really happened.
When Monk opens his eyes, he has to blink a few times to make sure he's not dreaming. Most exciting of all, Benjy is now all grown up, and looking at colleges.
When Natalie asks what brings Sharona to San Francisco, she says that a distant relative of hers, her uncle Howard Fleming, fell down some stairs on a golf course at the Eastdale Country Club and died (Natalie is familiar with the place as parking there is very expensive), and Sharona has come to arrange his funeral, and is contemplating a lawsuit against the country club.
Sharona invites Monk and Natalie to accompany her to the law office, before they all go to lunch, and Natalie happily accepts.
Sharona sees what they're offering and accepts, noting that the settlement is enough for Benjy to take his pick of colleges to attend.
Later, as the lawyers take a break, Monk and Natalie both congratulate her.
