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.

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

Continuity mistake: 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.


Mr. Monk Gets Jury Duty - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: In the jury room, the two windows behind Monk have venetian blinds, which are raised halfway on the right window. But in several shots of the science teacher coming over to identify the white powder, the right window's blinds are pulled down. (00:35:00)

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.

Adrian Monk: I don't know how he did it. But he did it.

Show generally

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.


Answer: Through the entire show, I don't recall her ever mentioning another job. The two explanations I had for being able to afford those cars, was there might have been a life insurance policy after her husbands death (or Mitch left her quite a bit after he died). The other may have been she had accepted some money from her family willingly or unwillingly asked for it. But in truth, I would imagine it was for product placement in the show. Most shows like Monk tend to keep the characters moderately wealthy or financially healthy, so they can insert products or items for the characters to use. Phones, food items, cars etc.

Answer: In one of the episodes it shows her going back home and that she came from money. Her parents are wealthy. Maybe that is the answer.

But in the show after it's revealed she comes from money, she states she doesn't take money from her parents, despite still visiting them.
