Some may think that since the market has settled down nothing really happened this week. Cramer disagreed, calling it one of the most monumental weeks in years. It was a week that displayed unprecedented volatility and the eye-popping frailty of equities.
"We traveled about 10,000 Dow points up and down for the week in total—a roller coaster that simply isn't healthy no matter if it ended pretty much where it began," the "Mad Money" host said.
More importantly, Cramer was reminded of some valuable personal finance lessons. This was a necessary education for investors to know how to protect themselves and take advantage of opportunity when it presented itself.
Monday: Even investing veteran Cramer was shocked at what he saw on Monday. He certainly expected weakness at the opening bell, given the weakness in China. But the action that occurred wasn't just selling; it was a flash crash with the Dow opening down 1,089 points.
The massive drop was unnerving to Cramer, but he was reminded of two things.
Lesson No. 1: Never use market orders
Prices on Monday were absolutely horrendous, but then they snapped back close to where they went out on Friday. Both a sell order with a limit and a buy order with a limit put a couple of points above those terrible prices could have let you crush the market. Terrific bargain buys could have been made.

Even after a crazy week, Cramer still likes to help investors find opportunities of companies that could disrupt the industry that they are in, even if it means looking at companies that are privately held.
That is why he went off the tape to look at Vitals, a privately held company that aims to be the Priceline of the health care industry. It provides consumers with easy-to-access information about the cost and quality of health care providers, with over 6 million doctor ratings and reviews.
Vitals has basically created a giant map of the U.S. health care system for consumers, as well as a suite of software services for health plans to better serve their members.
Cramer spoke with Vitals executive chairman and founder Mitch Rothschild, who explained that with the Affordable Care act has prompted millions of Americans to pay more attention to their health care.
"When it was dad's credit card paying, they didn't care. Now with high-deductible plans on the exchanges, people are caring; and when they don't care, we try to intervene and give them an economic reason for caring and provide incentives to make the smart economic choice," Rothschild said.
In the Lightning Round, Cramer gave his take on a few caller-favorite stocks:
Array Biopharma: "The last program that they had was not up to snuff, which is why the stock came down. But they have others. I will sanction it only as a pure spec."
Groupon: "We are not fans of Groupon. It is too early to buy Groupon. There are still a lot of things that are not working there."
