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).
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.
