  • Trivia

    • When the victim is on the stretcher, why is she given neck support as if she were still alive?

    • On the widescreen DVD version, the dissolve-scene still image of the house and cars at the 00:13:20 mark is filmed in fullscreen and stretched to fit the widescreen frame. Look for the Cadillac skateboard in the driveway.

    • Monk turns off the tap with a towel to protect himself from germs, then dries his hands with the same side of the towel. What about the germs on the towel?

    • In the scene shot from inside Monk's refrigerator, just after he says, "Relax, I've been handling refrigerators since I was fifteen", you can see Sharona's boom mike drop briefly into view to pick up her response (19:23 in the episode).

  • Quotes

    • Stottlemeyer: Monk, what are you doing here?
      Monk: I want to help.
      Stottlemeyer: You want to help, say a prayer for the man.
      Monk: I can do more than that, Captain. You know I can.
      Stottlemeyer: Can you imagine what that man's going through?
      Monk: Yes, I can.

    • Sharona: Adrian, don't you want a closer look?
      Monk: No, I--I can see from here.
      Sharona: Would you like us to move the crash site a little closer to you.
      Monk: No, I'm fine.

    • Stottlemeyer: Oh, I'm sorry, I thought this was my office. Yeah, see, I'm confused because my name is on the door.

    • Monk: I'm not good at parties.
      Sharona: It's not a party. It's a memorial service. This is a nice place. Obviously whoever lives here doesn't work for you.
      Monk: The late Mrs. Ashcombe was richer than Canada.

    • Ashcombe: You understand, right? I mean, you lost your wife.
      Monk: Uh, understand what, sir?
      Ashcombe: The natural desire to pack her things away. You don't want them around to... remind you.
      Monk: I guess I had the opposite reaction. I haven't thrown anything of Trudy's away. Not even a hairbrush. Not even a hair from a hairbrush.

    • Sharona: What are you doing? You can't look through people's mail.
      Monk: I'm not stealing anything. I'm just combing through. I don't want to live in a world where a person can't comb through another person's mail.

    • Jennifer: Are you a psychic, Mr. Monk?
      Sharona: He's a psychic who doesn't believe in psychics.

    • Sharona: The former Commissioner isn't just another suspect, Adrian. He is connected. He is the Man and you'd better be sure about this.
      Monk: I'm as sure as I can be without any, you know--proof.

    • Dolly: You know what you are, Mr. Monk? You are what we in the spiritual world call a buzz kill.
      Monk: Thank you.

    • Monk: There is a very valuable piece of evidence somewhere in this store. It's a small pebble. It's about the size of a--small pebble.

    • Dolly: This time I am telling you the truth. What is wrong?
      Monk: You want to know what's wrong? I'll tell you what's wrong. I believe you.

    • Monk: You've got to be a little skeptical, Sharona. Otherwise you end up believing in everything--UFOs, elves, income tax rebates.
      Sharona: Well, that's better than believing in nothing. I feel sorry for you.
      Monk: Thank you

    • Daniel: Adrian--Adrian, I noticed you touching all the poles. Is that an American thing?
      Monk: Yes, it's an American tradition. I'm touching all the poles because I'm proud to be an American.
