Mr. Monk Goes to the Hospital - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: When Monk, the Captain and Disher talk to Dr. Scott during his cardio test, the doctor's hospital gown is falling off his left shoulder in about half the shots, but is pulled up to his neck in the rest. This alternates several times throughout the scene, though he never touches or adjusts the gown. (00:19:30 - 00:21:30)

Mr. Monk Goes to the Hospital - S5-E16

Revealing mistake: When Monk and the others are examining the crime scene, the "corpse" can be seen breathing (his abdomen is rising and falling) and blinking. There are various shots in this scene taken from behind the body looking into the room, and some of these are pulled back so that the body is visible while others are zoomed in so that it is not; this is not a mistake, but suggests that maybe the actor was told he would not be visible in these shots and so did not need to hold his breath.

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.
