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

Continuity mistake: When Monk is shot he staggers back against the wooden railing - his arms are barely a foot above it, no way he'd overbalance and fall over. In the angle from behind the railing only comes up to about his waist, and he promptly topples over it.

Mr. Monk and His Biggest Fan - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When the lady that just "bought" Randy gives him his shirt you can see from behind that he closes one button of his shirt. But in the next shot 2 seconds later there are at least 5 buttons closed already.

Suggested correction: Not necessarily, as in many cases when someone is trying to claim someone else's inheritance it can take years until such a case is finally resolved by a judge's ruling.

The point of the mistake is Randy said all his uncles are dead, but then later, Harvey Disher is alive. The farm wasn't in some probate court for years, Harvey had died the month before.


Mr. Monk and the Airplane - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: "Nationwide Airways" is the name of the fictional carrier used in the episode, and it even has its own logo and livery. Yet in the exterior shot of the plane pushing back from the gate, it has suddenly transformed itself into a Delta Air Lines plane. It also looks like a 1990s Delta plane while it is taking off. (00:13:05 - 00:15:00)


Mr. Monk On Wheels - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: In the lab scene near the end, when Monk has the electric wheel chair, Natalie is holding the bottle of pills in her right hand and the drink in her left hand when she gets up from the seat. In the next shot she is holding the drink in her right hand and the pills in her left.


Season 8 generally

Continuity mistake: When Monk and Brian face off with the bear, there are two tree stumps in between. When the camera is on the bear, he's close to the stumps and Monk and Brian are several feet away. In the reverse angle shot, though, Monk and Brian are close to the stumps and the bear is several feet away. (00:35:00)

Mr. Monk and the Bad Girlfriend - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: In the first shot, when the captain is chatting on the computer and Monk is looking at him through the glass, the webcam we see is white and round. In the next scene, when Monk goes into the captain's office, the webcam is now gray and square.


Mr. Monk On Wheels - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: When Monk is trying to get out of the Captain's car, Randy is trying to get his wheelchair out of the trunk. In the shots from the rear of the car, Randy is directly behind the vehicle. In the shots from the front, Randy is a few feet away. (00:18:00 - 00:19:00)

Captain Defenestrator

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.

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.
