Plot hole: Monk wants to take a look at the case that got Christie to leave the force. But given that they are ordinary cops they would not be able to just go and pull internal affairs files.
Continuity mistake: When the episode begins, the Employee Of The Month is shown walking into Mega-Mart. The exterior of the store is shown as a cement color and there is a garbage can right beside the front door of Mega-Mart. When the Employee Of The Month is shown opening up the door to the store, just seconds later, you will see the exterior of the building is now yellow and white and there is no longer a garbage can beside the door. Clearly they are using two completely different buildings. (00:00:40)
