When Monk and the others are examining the crime scene, the "corpse" can be seen breathing (his abdomen is rising and falling). 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.

Marcy, the obsessed fan of Brad's crime show, complains bitterly about his series changing its theme song. This was written as a little joke on Monk's real life fans, many of whom protested the show's 2nd season musical change from Jeff Beal's instrumental to Randy Newman's vocal theme. Newman's vocals opened this episode as usual, but after Marcy repeats her "don't change the theme song" mantra at the end, Beal's theme was brought back to play over the closing credits. It's been used at the end a number of times since. See more...

When the angry landlord enters, Darwin pulls the same bowl from a different shelf and throws it again.|
