The college nickname of Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub), a former police detective turned freelance investigator on the crime drama MONK/USA/2002-2009.
Adrian earned his nickname when he attended the University of Berkeley (graduated in 1981) because he was obsessed with defrosting the refrigerator in his dorm building.
Years later, when he went to his 25th reunion, he discovered the dorm freezer covered with ice and so Adrian quickly grabbed a spatula and pan to clean it up once again.
Note: He lodged in Room 303. A tie on the door was the signal (babe alert) not to interfere with the roommate inside.
