Mr. Monk and the Kid - S3-E16

Character mistake: Stottlemeyer says that the human finger was "still bleeding, freshly severed." But prior to him saying this, when we are shown the finger, there is no bleeding whatsoever and the blood on the severed end had already dried.

Mr. Monk and the Game Show - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Whilst Monk is being introduced to the long standing winner on the show a stagehand is adjusting the microphone on his jacket with both hands. As he says "Are you almost done?" the shot changes and the stagehand is just using his left arm to adjust it. The stagehand then pulls his arm away but the next shot he is adjusting the mic again and using both hands to do it. It keeps changing throughout the rest of the scene.

Mr. Monk and the Red Herring - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When Natalie puts out the fire with the extinguisher, the nozzle is still pushed down when she uses it, but when she puts it on the table, in the next shot the nozzle is fully extended. There are a number of times during the scene, when Monk is trying to figure out how to use it, where the nozzle's position keeps changing between shots.

Mr. Monk Gets Stuck in Traffic - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the episode when Ray Galardi is meeting with Steve Marriot the amount of sun between shots constantly changes between shots. One moment that is very noticeable is a shot of just Ray with the hill in the background and a lot of shade. After showing Steve it goes back to Ray and the sun is now very bright.

Mr. Monk Meets the Godfather - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Monk meets Salvatore Lucarelli (Philip Baker Hall), Lucarelli is cutting up fisheads on a cutting board. Throughout the scene the fish on the table constantly change between shots. One of the notable changes is when Lucarelli is discussing the case he has for monk there is a shot of a fish, and when the shot changes you can now see the fish's head has all of a sudden been chopped off.

Mr. Monk Gets Cabin Fever - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: After Stottlemeyer says "Well I'm gonna make the most of it" (when he is talking to Monk in the backyard of the cabin and Monk is cleaning) he looks a little to his left and opens a beer can while his mouth is shut. In the next shot he is looking in a different direction and is smiling a toothy grin.

Mr. Monk Gets Stuck in Traffic - S3-E13

Factual error: Monk inspects the wrecked VW Beetle and notes that "the air conditioning is off." But it's a standard 1973 VW: they didn't come with A/C, and though you could add it, it tended to overstress the little air-cooled engine. Look closely and you can see that this VW does not have the bulky under-dash compressor needed to run an add-on A/C.

Mr. Monk Gets Fired - S3-E4

Plot hole: While convenient to the plot, the computer system used by the medical examiner is far too poor to be taken seriously for a high level agency. While Monk is unaware of deleting the files on the computer, why would there be a one button push to delete all the files on working cases? Even to not have some sort of password to delete files is questionable, as most systems in offices and workplaces will only have functions like this for administrators, executives etc. We find out that all the files are backed up and are slowly being recovered. However, these types of systems are primarily for emergency scenarios such as fire, flooding and so forth. With the ease that Monk is able to delete the files by accident, it seems a bit hard to believe how easy it is to do.

Mr. Monk Gets Cabin Fever - S3-E12

Factual error: Randy calls the cabin and gets a "not in service" message. But he should have heard an unanswered ring instead. The FBI agent tore the cord from the wall, which in the US does not generate a "not in service" recording. That only occurs when the phone company cuts off your service due to non-payment or cancellation. (00:30:00)

Mr. Monk and the Panic Room - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: Throughout the episode, the panic room door is made to look metal. But later when a hole is cut in the door, you can easily tell by looking through the hole that it is wood.

Mr. Monk and the Red Herring - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: When Julie's teacher is searching the name 'Larry Tilburn', he isn't typing into a search engine, virtual encyclopedia, or anything of the type, the computer just shows a blue screen with a popup message in the middle.

Mr. Monk Gets Stuck in Traffic - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: Whilst Monk is talking with Natalie and Julie about halfway through the episode, Natalie asks Monk whether he helped Julie to find somewhere to go to the bathroom. When Julie says she has managed to hold on Monk says, "isn't she a trooper?" and is pointing his finger at her and then lowers his hand. In the next shot showing Natalie and Julie, he is still pointing at them. (00:21:55)

Mr. Monk and the Airplane - S1-E13

Trivia: In "Mr. Monk and the Airplane," Monk and Sharona are boarding the plane when Sharona spies Tim Daly. She is very excited and says she watched him all the time on a show called "Wings." Monk says he never saw that show. Tim Daly and Tony Shalhoub were co-stars on Wings together for many years.

More trivia for Monk

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 defeats the whole purpose of a union. The mayor would lose labor's support and Cusack union troubles would just be starting.
