Mr. Monk and His Biggest Fan - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: In the lumber yard, Randy shows a rare streak of genius by knocking out the bad guy with a 2x4 shoved through a stack of boards. When the 2x4 strikes Ringel, it stops its slide protruding about six inches from the stack. When the camera angle changes for the very next shot, the 2x4 is suddenly sticking out more than a foot.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Ringel pulls a gun on Monk and Marcy, he reaches over and closes the venetian blinds. There's no gap in the shuttered blinds when he walks away from the window. Then there is. Then there isn't again. (00:34:30)

Mr. Monk and His Biggest Fan - S6-E1

Plot hole: It's out of character for Monk, a chronic stickler for details, not to correct an error, especially one relating to his own life. Marcy's diorama for "Mr. Monk & the Three Pies" includes Natalie, who wasn't around yet when "Three Pies" occurred. The doll should be of Sharona, but since that would ruin the ensuing joke, Monk is allowed to overlook it. He's aware of Marcy's unreasoning obsessions, but Monk's OCD would simply not permit him to keep quiet about a mistake that glaring.

Continuity mistake: When the lady that just "bought" Randy gives him his shirt you can see from behind that he closes one button of his shirt. But in the next shot 2 seconds later there are at least 5 buttons closed already.

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

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.
