Corrected entry: The SFPD is shown as having jurisdiction on a homicide that was committed in Marin County. They would actually never have jurisdiction over the case at all - in committing the crime, Linda Fusco would have only passed through parts of Marin and Alameda Counties. This means that although Monk and Natalie could still be sent to the crime scene on Linda's behalf (since Monk is only a private detective), the Marin County Sheriff's Department would be in charge of the case.
Corrected entry: It's late at night when Roger is stung by hundreds of bees at the lookout point. But bees (both the European and Africanized varieties) are not active in late night hours. They're diurnal (active only during the day). Unless something breaks into their hive, which doesn't happen here, they don't fly or swarm at night. (00:42:00)
Corrected entry: Monk tells David about Trudy's murder, saying she told him that day she was going out to run an errand for his brother Ambrose. But this contradicts the facts established in "Mr. Monk & the 3 Pies," where Monk didn't know why Trudy had gone out that day until Ambrose told him. That's definitely not a fact that Monk would get wrong.
Corrected entry: Monk is confronted with a case where Marci's dog, which died 3 days earlier, is suspected of mauling her neighbor. Marci therefore is suspected of killing her dog after the fact to save herself from prosecution. Any veterinarian could easily determine whether a dog died today or 3 days earlier by its stage of decomposition.
Corrected entry: When Monk is leaving Derek Philby's classroom, he dots the "I" in "REMINDER" on the blackboard. However, the word was in capital letters, so the "I" needn't have been dotted. Monk wouldn't make this mistake. (And the word is written in plain block sans-serif letters, so he's not adding a missing line: he's definitely dotting the capital I.)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Randy hits Ringel with the timber, it was originally the same length as all the others. Then at the moment Randy strikes, he hits the timber with a flat palm. In real life, it would just return into its stack without touching Ringel at all.
Corrected entry: Why is everyone talking about the gun piece as if it's evidence, even the police do. 1st they don't know who called in the tip. 2nd the reporter touched it with her bare hands and kept it for over 24 hours before turning it over to the police, and 3rd the chain of evidence is completely messed up. It would never be considered evidence by police.
Corrected entry: When Mr. Monk is doing his summation, he mentions the moving truck being towed. However, he would have no way of knowing about this because he wasn't there when it happened, and he couldn't have heard about it from Stottlemeyer because he wouldn't talk to him about the murder.
Corrected entry: When Mr. Monk and Natalie escape from the Sheriff at the car wash in Sparks, Nevada, they end up taking the Sheriff's car. They are first seen after this with this car as they are checking the Sheriff's briefcase on the side of the road. Then, the very next scene is with Natalie and the man behind bars at San Quentin (just north of San Francisco and at least a 2 to 3 hour drive from Sparks, Nevada). Then they are seen with Natalie's car at the parade in Riverton, CA (a town between San Francisco and San Quentin). The only way this could have happened is if they drove all the way back to Sparks, Nevada and then changed cars and returned to Riverton, California (at least 5 to 6 hours driving). Since the parade was happening that day, there would not have been enough time to do all of this driving and get to the parade on time.
