  • Trivia

    • An unexplained scar on Kevin's head appears when he does his magic act. It not only changes shape (lightning-bolt à la Harry Potter to straight line) but switches sides (from left side of forehead to right).

  • Quotes

    • Kevin: You are really the Great Torini. And I haven't even met the other Torinis. I don't even know if they're halfway decent Torinis.

    • Kevin: Thank you, Mr. Torini. You won't regret this.
      Torini: Okay.
      Kevin: Well, you might regret it a little bit. But you won't regret it that much.

    • Kevin: Thank you, folks, thank you... ow, ow, don't... don't look at my pants.

    • Natalie: What did you think?
      Monk: Give me a minute. I'm still absorbing it.
      Natalie: You know, I didn't think it was that bad.
      Monk: Natalie... there are three dead doves on that stage.

    • Monk: (about Kevin's funeral photo) That's a nice picture.
      Natalie: I took that picture.
      Monk: Oh.
      Natalie: Took me two hours. I wanted to get one where he wasn't talking.
      Monk: Ha, well, you did it.
      Natalie: Actually, I had to Photoshop it.

    • Monk: (about Kevin) The man would not shut up. One time... he had a sore throat. He talked for two and a half hours about how much it hurt him to talk.

    • Torini: It's kind of perfect, right. I---I wanted a stranger and there's really no one stranger than Adrian Monk.

    • Torini: So... if you want to talk to me again, call my lawyer. He's a better magician than I am.
