Mr. Monk Gets Cabin Fever - S3-E12

Audio problem: At the start, the car stops at the gas station (weirdly far from the pumps, for a start). Grooms talks to Monk then walks to the back holding the nozzle, stretching the hose taut, despite no filler cap on that side of the car. We cut to Monk, and we hear a clunk of Grooms attaching the nozzle (to what?). Later Grooms is still holding the nozzle, and as Monk goes inside Grooms is just wandering around aimlessly holding it.

Mr. Monk and the Earthquake - S1-E11

Audio problem: Sharona and Benjy are forbidden access to their damaged apartment building. The policeman tells them to call a certain emergency number, but when he says this, his lips aren't moving. (00:11:00)

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (2) - S6-E16

Audio problem: Toward the end of the episode, Mr. Monk runs out to stop the Governor's car before it crosses the banner and blows up. The first time that he yells out that "There is a bomb", you can see that Mr. Monk's mouth is not moving to say those words.

Mr. Monk and the Lady Next Door - S7-E12

Audio problem: Two words near the beginning of Monk and Marge's dinner conversation are audibly spliced. When Marge says "what does a", the word "a" is cut off at the beginning; and when Monk says "detective does" in his response, the end of the word "does" is cut off during the s. (00:15:15)


Mr. Monk Buys A House - S7-E1

Audio problem: When Natalie is saying "it" in the phrase "I still don't hear it", her voice sounds different than in the rest of the sentence, as it was audibly spliced in two. They used two different takes and combined them. (00:03:45)

Suggested correction: I just watched the scene and I hear the whole word "spider."


Mr. Monk Goes Camping - S8-E12

Audio problem: At the beginning of Season 8 Episode 12, the round analog dial clock on Monk's nightstand beeps like a battery operated digital travel clock would, and Monk looks over at it. But in Season 8 Episode 16 (at about 38 minutes), that very same clock has a bell type ring that one would expect of a wind up analog dial type clock. (00:01:00 - 00:38:00)


Mr. Monk and the End - Part I - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: In 3-7 "Employee of the Month", Joe Christie says he was with Monk when he got the news of Trudy's death. He said Monk had been laughing, and that he never heard him laugh again. In this episode Monk and Stottlemeyer get called to the scene of a crime, a women's clinic. In this episode there is a flashback to the exact same location years earlier and to Stottlemeyer getting the phone call about Trudy's death. He and Monk were working a case that day and Joe Christie was not present.

Mr. Monk Goes to Mexico - S2-E2

Trivia: According to co-producer Tom Scharpling, the Mexican homicide cops are purposely written as parodies of Stottlemeyer and Disher, right down to their attitudes, their ranks, their suits, and Captain Alameda's mustache. Even the bumbling lieutenant's name is a little joke on Disher. Plato means "dish" in Spanish.

Answer: Stottlemeyer was already upset after the phone call. He was trying to get "Kevin" (who would have to be a judge, but no further character information is given) to issue a restraining order with no evidence of needing one, except that Adrian Monk said she needs one. Kevin said he would need to "sleep on it." So it's clear they've been trying to provide protection and unable to get the results they need, which seems to be based on no one trusting Monk the way Stottlemeyer does. He's just angry that they failed to protect Linda despite all their work. Although it does feel like a scene was cut, or altered, from the show that shows the futile attempts to protect Linda which built up to his outrage.


Answer: While walking upstairs in the victims house randy starts messing with his out of place tennis shoes. When he gets upstairs to monks he has on other shoes. Could have to do with the expensive rug.
