  • "Monk" has come too far too consistently for something like this.

    Trivia (3)

    • Trivia: The closing scene is unusual, in that Monk does not appear.

    • Lt. Randy Disher is hit by the car right above his knees and then he slumps to the ground. Yet he is later shown to have a cast on one leg and one arm. It is more likely that he'd have two broken legs and no broken arm since the arm wasn't hit by the car and he didn't use it to break his fall to the pavement.

    • When the body surfaces in the mud bath, its arms are outstretched like a zombie, presumably due to rigor mortis. But when the body is examined shortly thereafter, its arms are on its chest. Stottlemeyer said the coroner estimated that the body had been dead for about 36 hours, but rigor mortis takes about 72 hours to resolve.

    Allusions (2)

    • The name Darlene was used by Uma Thurman's character at her wedding in Kill Bill, Vol. 2.

    • Julie: You are old, Father William, the young man said . . . . Julie is reciting a stanza from a poem in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), commonly known as Alice in Wonderland. The verses, recited by Alice to the Caterpillar, are a parody of Robert Southey's sentimental poem, "The Old Man's Comforts, and How He Gained Them" (1799). Julie slightly misquotes a line, "Do you think, at your age, it is right?" substituting "this" for "it." Monk repeats the misquoted line, evidently with the implication that what the person he's addressing is doing isn't right, either, at any age.
