Updates: Series 4
Factual error: Debbie's pet bird is called a parakeet, but it's a much larger exotic bird. It's unlike Monk, whose other OCD eccentricities and obscure knowledge are in full force despite his amnesia, not to know the difference. Monk may not know every rare species by name, but parakeets (aka budgerigars) are household pets common enough that anyone would know Debbie's bird isn't one. Monk definitely would have known.
Revealing: In their efforts to hide Gerald's pet mouse from the hospital staff, Randy and Natalie toss the rodent back and forth and alternate hiding him in their pockets. But every time he's tossed, Devo the Mouse gains weight. In fact, Devo's (stuffed?) stunt-mouse double is at least twice Devo's actual size.
Plot hole: The murderer mails a garage door opener with the button taped down to his victim and kills her by remote. But A) With the switch continuously in the "on" position, the battery would die long before the package arrived, and B) Door openers use special frequency tones that are set much like a safe combination. The likelihood of one control opening 3 different doors in the same area, as it does here, is virtually nil.
Continuity: In Season 4, Episode 14, "Mr Monk and the Astronaut", the killer astronaut is talking to Julie and her classmates when he visits the school. When he gives the class red laser pointers, he tells them to pass them back. The girl on the far right of the shot turns around. When the shot changes, she begins to turn around again.
Continuity: When Randy is at Monk's place talking about hiring him, Monk says "Like who?" to which Randy replies "Like Me". While Randy says this he is holding a glass with one hand, the other being in his pocket. In the next shot, when Natalie says "Is it about the dentist?", Randy is holding it with two hands. Then, in the next shot, he is holding it with one hand again.
Continuity: When the man with the letter from the Attorney General is telling Stottlemeyer not to 'screw it up', he is moving the letter in his hand. However, every time we see Stottlemeyer front on, there is a corner of the letter in the shot, and the letter remains stationary even while the other agent is moving it.
Continuity: Monk tells David about Trudy's murder, saying she told him that day she was going out to run an errand for his brother Ambrose. But this contradicts the facts established in "Mr. Monk & the 3 Pies," where Monk didn't know why Trudy had gone out that day until Ambrose told him. That's definitely not a fact that Monk would get wrong.
Continuity: During a 30-second timeout, the scoreboard in the background is counting down the time. As the scoreboard hits 12 seconds, the shot changes to Mr. Monk and the team huddle. The scoreboard appears again in the following shot, for the remainder of the timeout. When the scoreboard reappears, the clock has more than 12 seconds on it.
