  • Trivia

    • When the uniformed cop repeats Randy's zinger, Randy throws his notebook at him, and then gets over to the cop by stepping over Marissa Kessler's corpse. However, moments later, when Stottlemeyer grabs Randy and drags him away, they pass the medical examiner on his left. However, Randy's legs don't bump the body at all.

    • When the police are investigating Marissa Kessler's death, they leave the body uncovered. Generally, at outdoor crime scenes, the police put a sheet over the body.

    • When Natalie pulls the #17 Lotto ball, she says that it's the same age as her daughter. When Natalie met Adrian in "Mr. Monk and the Red Herring", she told him that Julie was 11. That would make Julie 14, not 17.

    • Monk says he solved the "killer astronaut" case last year. "Mr. Monk and the Astronaut" over two years ago in real time (in season 4).

    • When Monk held up Dr. Bell's calendar, it said "Friday, July 16." The last time that July 16th was on a Friday was 2004.

  • Quotes

    • Natalie: Do you know who Garfunkel is?
      Monk: Sure. It's a cartoon cat; hates Mondays.
      Natalie: No, that's Garfield. This is Garfunkel.
      Monk: Oh, Garfunkel, right. It's the thing my grandmother had on her neck.

    • Monk: You're just reading little numbers of little white ping-pong balls. And if it wasn't you, they'd just hire some other bim...
      Natalie: Some other what? Bim-what?
      Monk: (after thinking for a bit) Bim-portant person.

    • Disher: Any idea on motive?
      Stottlemeyer: I guess you can say that there were 12 million people with a motive, myself included. This was the Lotto Girl: she broke my heart three times a week.

    • Officer Kelton: (to Natalie) Are you okay?
      Monk: Oh, she's fine.
      Officer Kelton: She doesn't look fine.
      Monk: Nah, that's just her look.

    • Lawrence: And you're his partner?
      Natalie: Partner slash babysitter slash assistant slash babysitter.

    • Natalie: (announcing Lotto numbers) Well, that's it for now. Keep playing. You'll thank me later.
      Monk: "You'll thank me later." That's my line. I say that.

    • Natalie: I'm sorry, Mr. Monk, I got a little distracted.
      Monk: Is the cadaver in your way? We can move it across the street if you like.

    • Stottlemeyer: (on the phone) No, no, I can't, Monk. I'm at the gym. No, you don't want to come down here, believe me. There are naked people here.

    • Monk: I can't blame Natalie for leaving. I'd leave me to if I had the chance. I'm the king of Garfunkel. I am oozing Garfunkel.

    • Disher: I'm glad you like numbers, Billy. You're going to be wearing some numbers on your shirt.
      Billy: Is that right?
      Disher: They won't be lottery numbers.
      Billy: I get it.
      Disher: You're going to prison.
      Billy: I get it.
      Disher: You have the right to remain silent.
      Billy: I will if you will.
