Mr. Monk and the Leper - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: Randy is desperately trying to pry his teenage acne photo off the doctor's wall. He knocks the photo underneath it crooked, but it rights itself in the next shot. Then he pulls his picture free, making a large hole in the wall, but knocks all the surrounding photos off onto the floor. There's no time lapse, but when he turns around, the fallen photos have all put themselves neatly back up on the wall, and the hole is gone. (00:32:30)

Continuity mistake: Monk uses paper towels to grab the phone, dragging a length of white paper across the kitchen counter and leaving it there. But when he turns around to talk to Natalie, the counter behind him is bare. The paper towel trail has vanished. (00:05:40)

Continuity mistake: When the body falls out of the balloon gondola, the weights that were securely tied to it have disappeared. The corpse also changes positions on the ground between shots, even though no one has touched it. (00:37:30)

Mr. Monk and the Garbage Strike - S5-E2

Question: Why would it have been political suicide if it was discovered that Mayor Nicholson was secretly meeting with Cusack to end the garbage strike? If anything, if the people found out that they were meeting to find a way to end the garbage strike, wouldn't that have made everybody happy considering how much garbage was piling up all over the city?

Answer: The two men are trying to work out a secret deal between them without involving the union, which means the workers' interests aren't being represented and defeats the whole purpose of a union. The mayor would lose labor's support and Cusack's union troubles would just be starting.
