Mr. Monk Gets Married - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: In Dalton's antique store, in the close of the forged map, the "sold" tag is covering part of the state names (mainly the West in West Virginia) and part of the picture. In the wide shot, the tag is now in the corner and not covering anything.


Mr. Monk Is On The Air - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: When Monk and Natalie are getting out of their car at Max Hudson's house, there is a woman on the sidewalk walking past the house. As soon as Monk asks, "What station is he on?" the camera angle changes to a view from Max's porch, and said woman suddenly disappears, when she should be seen walking across the driveway. (00:07:55)


Mr. Monk and the Class Reunion - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When Natalie is noticing Monk's nickname on his registration form, you can see a female extra with black hair, a gray outfit and a purse on her left shoulder walk past Natalie on the left side of the screen. Twenty seconds later, as Natalie is turning and preparing to walk away, the exact same female extra walks past her again, again going in the same direction. Also, in the same shot, you see a male extra with a satchel over his shoulder walk past the camera as Natalie is pulling the form from her purse, and he briefly and instantly reappears walking past Natalie again at the point where she grins and says, "I don't know!" for the second time. (00:05:25 - 00:06:10)


Mr. Monk Goes to a Rock Concert - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Monk and Natalie are first talking to Kendra Frank, when Kendra says,"Look, they're trying to say he OD'd! Okay? That's impossible! He's been clean for 17 months! I know, I talked to him about it every day!" you can see that Monk has his right arm down by his side. But when the camera changes angle to Natalie replying,"Well, Kendra, we were there. We saw a needle in his arm," Monk's right hand goes from being by his side to scratching the side of his cheek with his finger. (00:13:10 - 00:14:35)


Mr. Monk Is At Your Service - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: During the brunch scene with Natalie's parents, the rolls in the bread bowl change position several times. In some shots, there are four, in others, there are five. They also go from being piled on top of each other to being arranged in the bowl and back several times. They're out of Monk's reach, so he's not just "making them even" either. (00:04:50 - 00:06:35)

Mr. Monk's Other Brother - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: When Adrian is talking to Dr. Bell, after he says, "And they needed help," you can see that Dr. Bell's glasses are in his left hand. In the next shot, you can see that they are on his face and his hand is empty. (00:29:15)


Mr. Monk and the UFO - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: The shots don't match when Monk gets out of bed to go out and confront the UFO enthusiasts. The position of the bed covers changes noticeably between the close-up and the wider shot. (00:36:20)

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (1) - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Monk is first arrested by the Sheriff, his arms are fully extended for the entire time that he is lying face down on the floor and his head is turned to one side. However, later on, Mr. Monk explains on the phone to Captain Leland Stottlemeyer how the Sheriff framed him. While the Sheriff is changing the gun barrels during Mr. Monk's explanation, you now see Mr. Monk with both of his hands behind his head and his head is now face down on the ground.

Mr. Monk and the Dog - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: When Monk takes the dog to the park, they're standing on the curb by the grass when he goes to take the leash off. After he says "get ready", the shot changes and they're not by the curb anymore. They're back on in the next shot.

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 and the Garbage Strike - S5-E2

Question: Why would it have been political suicide if it was discovered that Mayor Nicholson was secretly meeting with Cusack to end the garbage strike? If anything, if the people found out that they were meeting to find a way to end the garbage strike, wouldn't that have made everybody happy considering how much garbage was piling up all over the city?

Answer: The two men are trying to work out a secret deal between them without involving the union, which means the workers' interests aren't being represented and defeats the whole purpose of a union. The mayor would lose labor's support and Cusack's union troubles would just be starting.
