Mr. Monk Paints His Masterpiece - S6-E14

New this month Factual error: When Stottlemeyer and Randy are at the painter's daughter's home they find a picture showing him in front of Carson papers, which leads the Captain to say: they have a contract with the treasury, they are producing the paper for the U.S. currency. This is wrong: the treasury is not in charge of printing the Federal Reserve Notes. Rather it is the privately owned Fed that prints the Federal Reserve Notes and then lends it to the treasury at interest. And the interest added is the reason why there will never be enough money to pay the interest, i.e. the state debt.

Mr. Monk and the Psychic - S1-E3

New this month Plot hole: When Monk is looking for the pebble, he immediately makes an announcement through the shop's speaker system and then directly asks the guy wiping the floor where the rest of the garbage is.

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (1) - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Monk attempts to steal the truck at the gas station and grabs the sleeping driver's keys, he drives the truck in circles and then stops. When he stops, the truck is exactly parallel to the end of the concrete slab where the gas pumps are located. However, when the police arrive, the truck is now at a different angle with the back of the truck now being closer to the end of the concrete slab than the front. The gas station attendant would not have moved the truck himself as the police would have told him not to touch anything at the scene.
