Mr. Monk Is on the Run (2) - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: When Monk is at the hotel, a teenage girl comes in to clean up the room. While they are conversing, the subject of mysteries comes up and she goes out and gets the newspaper and places it in front of Monk on the table. They then talk a little more about it and Monk gestures with his hands for her to take the newspaper away and she then picks up the newspaper off the table and exits the room with it. During this entire sequence, you can see that Monk does not ever touch the newspaper. Later on, at the car wash, Mr. Monk sees a newly-painted red SUV that used to be silver colored. When recalling that the teenage girl said that they were looking for a silver SUV, it now shows Monk pushing the newspaper across the table towards the teenage girl even though he never touched it in the original scene.

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (2) - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Monk is attempting to turn off the key to the Governor's car, his right hand is clutching the top middle portion of the front windshield. However, one of the next camera shots shows the windowshield only with no hand at the top. Then a couple of camera shots later, Mr. Monk's right hand is now on the top of the dashboard. At the end of the sequence, his right hand is clutching the top middle portion of the front windshield again. (00:36:30)

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (2) - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: Monk kicks an oil drum across the floor toward Rawlins. In the master shot, it rolls half the distance and passes a black line on the concrete. The angle changes to a view from behind Monk and Natalie as the barrel keeps rolling and almost reaches Rawlins. But when the master shot returns, the barrel is again just passing the midway line on the floor. (00:25:00)

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Dale Biederbeck is screaming at Monk, Dale is sitting in his wheelchair with both his hands down in his lap. The shot cuts in the middle of his sentence, and suddenly he has one hand up on the cell bars. (00:40:30)

Suggested correction: When he says Adrian is trapped in a worse prison, you see him put his hands on the bar. They're not in his lap.

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (2) - S6-E16

Audio problem: Toward the end of the episode, Mr. Monk runs out to stop the Governor's car before it crosses the banner and blows up. The first time that he yells out that "There is a bomb", you can see that Mr. Monk's mouth is not moving to say those words.

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (2) - S6-E16

Factual error: When Captain Leland Stottlemeyer looks at the postcard that Mr. Monk sent to him, the address shown is for the city of San Francisco with a zip code of 90019. This zip code is for the city of Los Angeles. The actual zip code for the address shown, after checking with the U.S. Postal Service website, is 94105. (00:07:50)

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (2) - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: When Monk and Natalie are watching the video of Dale, Monk puts his hand behind the screen (like he's blocking the sun to see it better) and Natalie is holding it on the bottom. When the shot changes to the screen, there're no hands behind it.

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (2) - S6-E16

Plot hole: When Stottlemeyer is confronted by the Sheriff for not going to the morgue there are 2 plot holes in that one scene: first it is impossible for that article to be in the morning paper since the coast guard "just fished him out" last night. And secondly an article, especially a long article like the one about the body in the bay would contain a physical description of said body. That is the reason it does not make sense to even ask the captain why he did not go to check the body to see if it was Monk when the body was tattooed and had red hair. (00:13:30)

Suggested correction: The article being there that fast is a bit odd, the sheriff mentions a police alert had been put out and was why he went to the morgue. That was what he was confronting the captain about. Even without the article the point of why he didn't check is still a valid question.

Do you really believe that the police alert did not include a description of said corpse being found for the missing person's unit to combine against their lists?

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (2) - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: In Season 6, Episode 16, "Mr Monk Is On The Run Part 2,," Natalie is organising his funeral after Monk is announced dead in the previous episode. She is talking to Randy and says she found a picture of him smiling. You see the photo of Natalie, Adrian and Julie on Christmas Eve. This picture was taken in Season 6, Episode 10, "Mr Monk and the Man who Shot Santa Clause". In the photo you can see the three of them smiling. But when you see the picture taken on Christmas Eve, Adrian is not smiling. He has a disgusted look on his face after he ate a cookie. Also when the picture was taken, Julie was smiling with her mouth closed but in the photo she is smiling with her teeth.

Adrian Monk: Unless I'm wrong, which, you know, I'm not.

Answer: Stottlemeyer was already upset after the phone call. He was trying to get "Kevin" (who would have to be a judge, but no further character information is given) to issue a restraining order with no evidence of needing one, except that Adrian Monk said she needs one. Kevin said he would need to "sleep on it." So it's clear they've been trying to provide protection and unable to get the results they need, which seems to be based on no one trusting Monk the way Stottlemeyer does. He's just angry that they failed to protect Linda despite all their work. Although it does feel like a scene was cut, or altered, from the show that shows the futile attempts to protect Linda which built up to his outrage.
