In the flashback to the murder, Jenna's dad is shown raising the real knife in the air only a few inches above the victim's chest, yet he is able to plunge the full blade into his chest. In reality, it would take much more force to get the knife in that deeply, especially through the rib cage.
Sharona's mom wants a picture of her daughters with her camera and only has one shot left but she doesn't even check through the view screen before hitting the automatic timer.
Why did Jenna still have a bottle of peanut oil in her bag a week after she used it to kill someone?
The police walked into the theater just in time to see Sharona and Jenna's fight but they just stand there rather than intervene.
Monk missed his cue to go on stage long before he was warned by the stagehand. In the first scene, we see that the door is open, so that Hal Duncan's character must be standing behind it the whole time. As the same scene is going on for Monk's performance, he is still backstage and the door is closed. Then the stagehand tells Monk that his scene is coming up. He would have already missed his mark by a few minutes, at least.
Jenna claims that she was at a party across town, which could have been possible for the murder to be pulled off. However, when we hear the story about her beating another actress with a golf club, it is also mentioned that she was across town at a party. They act as if this is a piece of evidence (like she was lying about being at the party in both cases), but it was still possible for the murder to be executed and her to not be there.
Gail is on death row, but in California, the penalty for second-degree murder is fifteen years to life.
How did the stage knife stick to the victim's chest? It has a retractable blade.
The time of allergic reaction would be hard to predict, so it would be hard to make sure, that the actor collapses exactly when he was "stabbed".
Even people with very severe allergies to peanuts usually do not have allergic reactions to ordinary refined peanut oil. Only a "cold-pressed" or "gourmet" variety, with peanut material added for extra flavor, would have been dangerous. I didn't get a good look at the label, which may have said that it was a special kind of peanut oil--in which case, I guess it's not a goof!
Why does Monk choose Dante's seventh circle of hell to compare to the Speedy Dates? The seventh circle is for the violent, the warmongers, and the usurers. A more natural choice would've been the second circle, which holds the lustful.
In a scene where Sharona, her mother, and Benjy are sitting at a table, Sharona says that Benjy is eleven years old, but in the baseball episode, Benjy is definitely twelve years old. What is up with this? Did Benjy regress in age?
Monk knows all kinds of random facts and information. Wouldn't he realize that a pulse is taken with the fingers and not the thumb?
Monk: So where is she?
Sharona: She's in the next scene. She kills a guy.
Monk: I hope it's the guy who designed these seats.
Speedy Date: It's so hard for women my age to meet men. I'm thirty-eight.
Monk: Oh, no you're not.
Speedy Date: Excuse me?
Monk: I was behind you when you signed in. I noticed on your credit card it said "member since 1979." You have to be eighteen to get that card. Which means you're at least forty-two.
Speedy Date: All right, I'm forty-three. Are you happy now?
Monk: You don't look it.
Benjy: Are you going to be doing any more acting, Mr. Monk?
Monk: Anything's possible, Benjy. Except for that.
Monk: I have a thought. What if my character expresses his rage by putting away the groceries? Roughly.
Cheryl Fleming: You know, I always thought if anyone in this family ever would end up in jail, it would be you.
Sharona: You know what? That's great, that's great! Right in front of Benjy?
Benjy: I don't mind.
Cheryl: No. You know what I'm talking about. Remember when you s-t-o-l-e the car?
Sharona: Mom, he's eleven years old. He can spell.
Monk: Can't I wear my own clothes? I'd rather wear my own clothes.
Kathleen: Well, what--what do you have at home?
Sharona: (touching Monk's shirt) Uh, well, he just has more of this.
Sharona: We're looking for Gail Fleming's dressing room.
Stage Manager: And you are?
Cheryl Fleming: We're her mother.
Monk: I felt responsible. I think it [the car bomb] was meant for me.
Salon Manager: (touching Monk's hair) Who did your perm? I absolutely love it.
Carl Sebastian: (directing a rehearsal) Adrian, you're filled with rage. You swagger.
Monk: I don't think so.
Sharona: How'd the dating go?
Monk: It was terrible. Thank God I'm not single.
Sharona: You are single.
Monk: Oh, yeah.
Speed Date #1: I like your eyes.
Monk: Thank you. They came with the face.
Monk: Speedy Dates? No, no, no. That's like Dante's seventh circle of hell.
Sharona: Oh, yeah, yeah. I read an article about [speed dating]. Instead of spending the night with one jerk, you get to meet fifteen jerks at once.
Flora: Yeah, that's not exactly how we would describe it.
Sharona: What do you think so far?
Monk: There's no leg room. It's so crowded.
Sharona: It's supposed to be crowded. It's sold out.
Monk: I'm Adrian Monk and this is Sh--She's usually right here.
Monk: When you stab me, use the prop knife.
Sharona: I'll try to remember.
Monk: (to doorman) We have a four-dollar credit on any future bribes. I won't forget. I'm writing it down.
Sharona: My sister's on death row. I think she's worth forty dollars.
Monk: Jenna told me all about it. We dated . . . briefly.
Stage Manager: How do you know the play, Mr. Monk? It's brand new; it's never been published.
Monk: I saw it last week, and I must have memorized it by accident. Sorry.
Stage Manager: You memorized it after seeing it one time?
Monk: I'm so sorry.
Marc Vann (Hal Duncan) plays Conrad Ecklie on the popular TV series CSI.
The official site credits another Speed Date actress, Lisa Long, as #4, even though the on-screen credits list Victoria Hoffman as #4 (she's #5 at the site).
Amy Sedaris, who played Sharona's sister, Gail, in "Earthquake," reprises her role in this episode.
Cheryl Fleming: (to Jenna) Break a leg!
In the superstitious world of theater, "Break a leg!" is traditionally used in place of "Good luck," a wish that was once thought to bring on its opposite. Cheryl, however, is using the expression quite literally.
