Mr. Monk vs. the Cobra - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: After Monk has been found in the coffin, Natalie and the captain comment on his smiling and the camera shows the candle has melted down all over Monk's hand. Then when the camera comes in closer, the candle is whole again and monk's expression has changed a little from the previous shot.

Mr. Monk vs. the Cobra - S3-E11

Character mistake: Monk says that Croatia is a new country and didn't exist until 1992, but Croatia gained independence in 1991. However, Croatia still existed prior to that, it was just part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. So things could still be made in Croatia.


Adrian Monk: I don't know how he did it. But he did it.

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.

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.
