Monk

Mr. Monk and Little Monk - S4-E8

Factual error: In the flashback where Monk is explaining how the money was stolen, the principal finds the 5 dollar bill he wrote "good luck" on and holds it up for everyone to see. The bill he holds is a 5 dollar bill which was released in 2000, with the enlarged Lincoln. The flashback takes place in 1972.

Mr. Monk and Little Monk - S4-E8

Factual error: When Monk is talking to Sherry about the painting in the art gallery where the painted woman was going to kill her husband, he says that she has a bruise on her left eye. But the bruise is actually on her right eye. While it is viewable that it is on Monk's left, he would not make that mistake.

Mr. Monk Gets Jury Duty - S4-E16

Factual error: Since Monk has OCD it would be highly unlikely for him to be on a jury. Plus, Monk works for the police department and since he technically works in the criminal justice system, that would have made him exempt from jury duty.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: First, he would have to ask for exemption in writing prior to serving, with proof, regarding hardship for his OCD. While it's possible his doctor might say serving jury duty would result in physical harm due to his mental illness, it's unlikely to be given by Dr. Kroger. And Monk is not an active peace officer, so that wouldn't earn him an exception.

Mr. Monk Gets Jury Duty - S4-E16

Factual error: When Natalie hears the jury's muffled screams inside the locked room she uses the fire extinguisher to tear off the door knob. But a locked door without a knob is actually only harder to open, because like that you cannot turn the mechanism even if it was unlocked.

Mr. Monk and the End - Part I - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: In 3-7 "Employee of the Month", Joe Christie says he was with Monk when he got the news of Trudy's death. He said Monk had been laughing, and that he never heard him laugh again. In this episode Monk and Stottlemeyer get called to the scene of a crime, a women's clinic. In this episode there is a flashback to the exact same location years earlier and to Stottlemeyer getting the phone call about Trudy's death. He and Monk were working a case that day and Joe Christie was not present.

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.
