Mr. Monk Goes to Vegas - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: As Stottlemeyer steps off the stage, after singing, he is holding the microphone and pulls it down so that the top is pointed toward the floor but in shots following this, when he is talking to the woman, the microphone is back in an upright position.

Mr. Monk and the Red Herring - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: Monk empties a pocketful of pushpins onto the science teacher's counter top. One rolls to the very edge, separate from the others. A few minutes later, the stray pin is missing. Just before Monk and Natalie leave, however, it reappears on the counter edge.

Mr. Monk Goes to Vegas - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: After Monk tells Randy to hit whilst playing Blackjack, the dealer gives him the Three of Spades. The dealer places it a bit to the right and over the Eight of Spades. The next shot we see of the cards the Three is now completely over the Eight and we can only see a bit of the bottom of the Eight.

Mr. Monk and the Employee of the Month - S3-E7

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)


Mr. Monk Gets Cabin Fever - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Randy and his 'girlfriend' are having take-away (take-out) food, the girlfriend says, "Before he died, he said he's always look out for me". As she says this, her arms are resting on the table, but in the next shot her elbows are on the table and her hands are together just under her chin.


Mr. Monk Takes His Medicine - S3-E9

Factual error: The medication Monk is given is called Doxinyl, which is a real medication, but it's an antihistamine, used to relieve allergy symptoms, nothing to do with OCD and certainly wouldn't cause the side effects shown.

Mr. Monk and the Panic Room - S3-E2

Factual error: The cops gain entry to the panic room to be faced with a chimp waving around a loaded handgun, apparently having shot a man, and shrug and make jokes about reading him his rights, instead of expressing the slightest concern that this animal might shoot them. Cops shoot remotely aggressive dogs all the time, but an ape with a gun doesn't even make them raise an eyebrow. Plus the police never did a gunshot residue test on the chimp. Standard procedure, and would've proven they didn't shoot.

Mr. Monk Takes Manhattan - S3-E1

Factual error: In the episode the victims were murdered with a .22 caliber firearm. However, a short shot of the crime scene focuses on an empty shell casing which comes from a larger caliber firearm, most likely a 9mm parabellum. (00:05:30)


Mr. Monk and the Panic Room - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Stottlemeyer has taken things like a banana and a Monkey Joe out of a black leather bag and places them on a table while interrogating Darwin the chimp. One shot while he's acting like a monkey shows the table's bare and the bag's closed.


Mr. Monk Goes to Vegas - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: The stacks of chips Monk bets when the dealer says they can't cover that change when Mr. Thorn says they can. Some stacks are shorter and have different colors on top. They change again when Monk figures out the case.


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

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.
