Mr. Monk and the Billionaire Mugger - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: It's spring in San Francisco in this episode: warm with light rain and people outside in shirtsleeves. That is, until Monk goes to visit Kelly, when it suddenly becomes winter. Everyone's bundled in heavy coats and it's sleeting. After Monk leaves Kelly's house, it becomes spring again. [The Kelly Street sequence was originally meant to be used in "Mr. Monk and the Candidate, " where everyone is dressed appropriately for cold weather. For whatever reason, it instead got used in this episode.]

Mr. Monk and the Airplane - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: "Nationwide Airways" is the name of the fictional carrier used in the episode, and it even has its own logo and livery. Yet in the exterior shot of the plane pushing back from the gate, it has suddenly transformed itself into a Delta Air Lines plane. It also looks like a 1990s Delta plane while it is taking off.

Mr. Monk Goes to Mexico - S2-E2

Trivia: According to co-producer Tom Scharpling, the Mexican homicide cops are purposely written as parodies of Stottlemeyer and Disher, right down to their attitudes, their ranks, their suits, and Captain Alameda's mustache. Even the bumbling lieutenant's name is a little joke on Disher. Plato means "dish" in Spanish.

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.
