Lt. Randall Disher
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer
When Monk is talking to Dexter about the earring found in his bed, he says that Amber does not have pierced ears so the earring cannot be hers. Later in the episode when Amber is presented with her sapphire necklace and also when she is talking with Sharona about her daughter, her ears are clearly pierced.
When Dexter threatens Monk to release nude photos of Sharona while they are in the garage, one of the pictures can be clearly seen at one point and the face on the picture isn't Sharona.
As brilliant as the method of murder seems, it is physically impossible. Due to the fact that magnetic field-lines have to be closed, the force of a magnet decreases dramatically with the distance to the magnet. "Strong enough to lift a car" is always referring to the holding-force on contact with the magnet, but no man-made magnet (except maybe a superconducting magnet from high-energy physics) would be able to deliver a force as strong as shown in this episode over the distance of approximately 1m. The magnet in this episode wouldn't even be able to lift a weight of 1 kg at a distance of more than 5 cm.
When Randy was under the table with the electromagnetic, he lay on his back pointing the magnet upward at the underside of the table. A magnet that powerful would have lifted him off the ground and quite possibly have pulled the statue on the table straight through the table's wooden surface down onto Randy.
Trivia: Danny Bonaduce states that he had a couple of beers at the party Saturday night. In real life, Danny is a recovering alcoholic. He even had a show on VH1 detailing his recovery process. This is either a goof, or he is supposed to be in a period of relapse during this particular episode.
Monk: I'm Adrian... Monk. You can call me Adrian... Monk.
Sharona: (cutting Monk's hair) Adrian, these are very sharp scissors. Don't piss me off.
Secretary: (inside Elliott D'Souza's gym) Are you a religious man, Mr. Monk?
Sharona: He is now.
Stottlemeyer: Randy, you can come out now--unless you're enjoying yourself down there [under the table].
Dexter: Detective. Caddy. Car thief. You wear many hats, Mr. Monk.
Dexter: And this is Danny Bonaduce.
Danny Bonaduce: Yep, this is a dream come true for you.
Sharona: Yeah, absolutely.
Monk: No! No details! Just a big, vague, general picture.
Monk: I was wrong. People change their minds.
Sharona: That's right-–people do. But you don't.
Monk: Look at that. There's a mirror above the bed. Why would he need a mirror on the ceiling?
Sharona: Don't think about that now. Not now.
Disher: Oh, my God. We're really here. We're in his bedroom. Pinch me.
Disher: I didn't mean really pinch me.
Stottlemeyer: Randy, shut up. We're done talking about pinching.
Dexter Larsen: Sharona. That's a beautiful name. It's from the Bible, isn't it?
Sharona: You read the Bible?
Dexter: Not lately.
Sharona: Benjy, we have to talk.
Benjy: I didn't do anything.
Monk (reading): "Hold me, Adrian, my darling husband.
True love's touch is so rare a gift.
How much more precious is your caress,
who loves so deeply yet fears the warmth
of hand on hand.
Still your love is given free, only to me.
Only to me."
That was the last poem she [Trudy] ever wrote.
Sharona: What happened to your regular barber?
Monk: I don't know. Every time I go there, he's closed.
Sharona: I wonder why.
Monk: I want to look rugged . . . not too macho.
Sharona: Don't worry. You're not going to look macho
Monk: Are you a friend of Dexter's?
Noelle: I am a Ghost of Sapphire Girls Past.
Monk: You play golf, don't you?
Monk: Yes. You're good. Don't be modest. She's good. She's a duffer. She duffs.
Dexter: I was the kind of guy that a woman like you never talked to.
Sharona: You still are.
Monk: What kind of man are you?
Dexter: I told you on the golf course, Mr. Monk. I do not lose.
Gary Cole (as Ed Mitchell) flew to the moon with Ted Levine (as Alan Shepard) in episode 9 of From the Earth to the Moon. Both were members of Chicago's now-defunct Remains Theatre troupe, which Cole founded with William Petersen in 1979.
Stottlemeyer: If you two wanna go tilting at windmills, be my guests. -- This is a reference to the oldest known novel Don Quixote de la Mancha in which a man with a few loose bolts upstairs fought windmills as a knight, thinking them to be enemies.
Benji is watching Popeye on TV. Popeye is a cartoon about a sailor man who becomes super-strong when he eats spinach and has fights with his arch nemesis Bluto (though Bluto is sometimes referred to as Brutus in the cartoon).
Noelle has a statue of a big white dog in her apartment. The same statue is owned by Chandler and Joey (later by Chandler and Monica) in the TV series Friends
