Monterey County is two hours away from San Francisco, not 20 minutes as Stottlemeyer states.
Monk graduated college in 1981. He met Trudy while in college. This is stated in the season 5 episode 6, 'Mr. Monk and the Class Reunion'. The whole reunion he kept saying he was referred to "as the guy with Trudy". However, in the video she makes for Monk, Trudy's states her pregnancy happens in 1982-1983. She says in the video it was years before she met Monk, but that would have been impossible.
Monk and Natalie constantly press Play and Pause on Monk's remote to watch Trudy's tape. But at the end of "Mr. Monk and the End - Part I," Natalie hooked up the video camera to the TV to watch the tape.
Trivia: When Monk checks the stove to see if it's off, Natalie comments that it would be horrible if they were downtown and forgot if the stove was turned off. Monk replies, "You know, that actually happened to me once!". This was a reference to the very first scene when the character made his premiere in "Mr. Monk and the Candidate." In which Monk is concerned that he left his stove on while at a crime scene.
When the camera shows the birthing clinic for the first time, a white Toyota Prius passes by. The scene is set in 1997, but the Prius shown is a 2003 model not invented for another six years.
In "Mr. Monk and the Employee of the Month," Joe Christie said he was with Monk when Monk got the call that Trudy was dead. Here he's nowhere to be seen.
In "Mr. Monk and the Secret Santa," Monk stated that he found Trudy's present to him after she died. Here he finds it before she died.
Both Monk and Stottlemeyer initially refer to the window washer as "Mikel Alvanov." When Monk confronts the window washer, he has "Manny" on his nametag and Monk subsequently calls him "Manny." At the end, Monk explains that "Mikel got greedy." There is an odd audio distortion as he says "Mikel," suggesting it was fixed in post edit. (The USANetwork site and the closed captioning identify him as "Manny Alvarez.")
Despite the Pickaxe Killer being the "most wanted man in California," the dialogue establishes that Stottlemeyer never hired Monk to investigate. This despite the fact the serial killer had killed five people by the time Monk rejoined the force.
When Manny and Monk start to fight, Manny uses a security device which saves him from falling down. When he puts it on, the right band is flat, the next shot it's twisted, and after that back to normal.
When Monk, Natalie, and Sharona go to the country club and meet Mr. and Mrs. Walsh on the golf course there is a burr on Mrs. Walsh's sun visor, when the camera cuts back to her the burr is gone.
During Monk's "Here's What Happened" in the closet, we see Jack and Sharona's uncle walking down the hill with the golf cart behind them. A few seconds later we see no golf cart and just two golf bags.
It's funny that Natalie should find out that Monk paid Sharona $20 a week more than he pays her since a big plot point of "Mr. Monk vs. The Cobra" is that Monk was paying Natalie the exact same amount as he paid Sharona, and Natalie ended up getting a raise in the end.
Sodium fluoroacetate takes considerably more than 10 seconds to kill: symptoms don't typically develop for at least three hours.
During the car chase, the cars pass by the same lighted building several times before ending the chase almost in front of it.
When the Colonel and his daughter are taking their seats next to Monk, a shot from Monk's left shows the woman and the Colonel settling in their seats. The camera angle briefly changes to the right, in which the woman can be seen sitting again, and immediately afterward switches back to the left, showing the woman already settled in her seat talking to her father.
The actual mailing address for UC Berkeley's Theater & Dance department is 101 Dwinelle Annex, Berkeley, CA 94720. However, the undergraduate admission letter would not have come from the department. It would have come from the Admissions office for the entire campus.
When Natalie walks into the police station, she puts her purse down on the table twice.
At the newspaper office, while the critic is paying for his delivered food, Natalie's arms instantly go from by her side to folded in front of her.
Part of Monk's evidence that the guy's alibi was phony was the fact that he jackhammered a big block of granite to pieces. Later on, the bad guy's defense attorney attempts to discredit this theory by saying that if the guy actually did jackhammer the block of granite to pieces, then the pieces should be able to be pieced back together like a giant puzzle. The DA should have objected to point this out.
