Storyline

A skydiving student on spring break appears to have drowned in midair - a case strange enough to convince Monk to travel to Mexico to investigate. While there, he must deal with a myriad of phobias, the theft of his luggage, the shortage of his favorite brand of bottled water, and apparent attempts on his life, all while trying to unravel one or more murders that are not what they seem.

Trivia

The detectives in San Macros, Captain Alameda and Lieutenant Plato, are thinly disguised versions of Captain Stottlemeyer and Lieutenant Disher. Alameda has the same mustache as Stottlemeyer and Plato is Spanish for "dish" or "plate". Additionally, Alameda and Plato wear the same suits that Stottlemeyer and Disher are wearing in this episode. This is actually the start of a recurring trope (more common to see in the series of Monk novels by Lee Goldberg) that every police department that Monk consults for has equivalents of Stottlemeyer and Disher (the novels "Mr. Monk Goes to Germany" and "Mr. Monk Is Miserable" are good examples of this).

Goofs

The San Marcos coroner tells Monk that Chip's blood was "hypertonic." Hypertonicity in fluids refers, more or less, to an imbalance in cellular pressure gradients internal and external to the cell. The term the coroner was probably meant to use was "hypervolemic," which refers to excess water/fluid in the blood. See more »
