Question: Does this show have the "record" for most times they recast a main character? There's been 2 Ryans, 3 Boyds (not counting them as twins), 2 Kristins, 2 Mandys, and 2 Carol Larabees. I know there's countless shows with 1 or 2 recasts, but what other shows come close?

Question: How exactly does Monk afford to pay Natalie? Would he still get a pension after being discharged for psychiatric reasons? Is it ever mentioned (in-universe or otherwise) if he's independently wealthy or something? On several occasions Natalie tried to get the department to pay Monk more and tells Monk he can't afford things at times or his check will bounce, like he's broke.
Question: Is it ever stated (in-universe or otherwise) if Natalie has a second job, or how she can afford everything, including all her new cars (I've seen her in at least 5 new cars, including an Audi)? She's always complaining she's broke, even after it's revealed she's a Davenport. But she also claims she doesn't take money from them. Plus, she's always trying to get Monk to pay her and/or pay her the full amount she's owed.
Question: The timeline in the past is 4 days 7 hours (something like that) and only 1 version of themselves can exist at any time. So if Doug (present) went back and died in the explosion, Doug from the past came to meet Claire. Happy ending, right? So does this mean that due to Doug (present) ceasing to exist, Doug from the past has only 4 days 7 hours to live? I mean, this sacrifice of himself for saving 500+ people doesn't look bad.
Question: Is Toulour the guy on the motorcycle next to Detective Lahiri's car when she is trying to get her boss to sign the 1077, when she realises that Ryan and the crew are going to try to steal the egg, or is it just some random guy on a motorcycle? He seems awfully interested in her car. (01:03:46 - 01:04:16)
Question: Why do the Roman soldiers in this film seem to rescue the Innocents from Herod's men?
Question: In the deleted scenes, who was the woman cast at the gun counter?
Question: Boyd and crew nearly ruin their relationship with Yoon by killing the Memphis crew in Mexico, as they were warned not to kill anyone south of the border. They redeem themselves by saying they'll take care of the bodies themselves and get them into the US. All well and good until the Mexico police stop them, and the crew let them take the truck with the bodies, congratulating themselves on the deception...but how does that solve anything? Corrupt or not, the cops now have the bodies, in Mexico.
Question: The main characters were going to fly to the Caribbean at the end of the movie. Gordon was going to go back there with his sister. As for the rest of the crew, were they to travel there for good to escape authorities or just go on vacation?
Question: At the end, when the doctor is pulling Monk up, the camera pans down well past Monk's feet, but was there a reason for that? Was there something on the cliff side the audience was supposed to see? It felt like the camera was about to linger on the weeds growing out, but then the camera angle cuts back to Monk's feet. Was there something I missed, or was it just bad/odd camera work?
