  • Trivia

    • It is established in the episode that the cabin that Sally Larkin hides in before murdering her husband is in Sonoma County. Sonoma County is at least 50 to 60 miles north of San Francisco, and way outside the SFPD's jurisdiction.

    • The outer rainbow in the double rainbow phenomenon has its color sequence inverted as compared to the inner one. When Monk looks at the two rainbows, they both have the same color sequence. Also, the rainbow is always double, just the outer one is weaker and is not always easy to be seen.

    • A rainbow can only be seen with the sun behind you. The shadows indicate the characters were looking into the sun, the opposite direction.

  • Quotes

    • Monk: There is no way she spent three days in that cabin. No way.
      Disher: Why not?
      Monk: Aaah.. there is no TV, so it's impossible, she would have died.

    • Monk: What's the matter with shortcuts? Shortcuts are your friend. They get you where you want to go. Only faster.

    • Natalie: There's a nest outside your window with three baby birds.
      Monk: I'll call the exterminator.
