Mr. Monk and His Biggest Fan - S6-E1

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

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. (00:39:30)

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.

Mr. Monk and His Biggest Fan - S6-E1

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.

Mr. Monk and the Rapper - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: After Monk tries to get out of the contract with Murderuss, he walks to Stottlemeyer with jewel necklaces around his neck. In the next shot (after Stottlemeyer asks "How did that happen?"), the necklaces have disappeared. (The golden teeth stay, though).


Mr. Monk and the Naked Man - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: While Monk and co. question Vicky's roommate, two throw pillows behind her on the couch shift their orientations several times from shot to shot. The larger one also moves from the couch corner to a spot behind the woman's left arm and then back again. (00:14:00)

Mr. Monk and the Naked Man - S6-E3

Factual error: While the police are investigating the murder at the start of the episode, the police make numerous mistakes with the crime scene. First there is no sheet over the body and/or tent to cover the body. Being they are on a beach it would make sense to cover the body from any debris or sand disturbing the body. Second, the sun is shining brightly would not help with preserving the body for the coroner. Finally why have the police only cordoned off a small area around the body. Being a crime scene and potential evidence could be found it makes little sense why they wouldn't cordon off the beach or most of it from the public.

Mr. Monk and the Bad Girlfriend - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: In the first shot, when the captain is chatting on the computer and Monk is looking at him through the glass, the webcam we see is white and round. In the next scene, when Monk goes into the captain's office, the webcam is now gray and square.


Mr. Monk and the Birds and the Bees - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: In the mausoleum, the bald man asks Monk and Natalie what happened to the cremation urn name cards, and bends to pick one of them up from the floor. There are no cards on the table when he does this, but in the next shot, four cards have appeared on the table out of nowhere. A short time later, they've all disappeared again. (00:18:45 - 00:20:15)

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

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.

More trivia for Monk

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.


Answer: While walking upstairs in the victims house randy starts messing with his out of place tennis shoes. When he gets upstairs to monks he has on other shoes. Could have to do with the expensive rug.
