Goofs

Mental health facilities such as the one in this episode are careful to keep all doors and windows leading outside carefully locked to prevent patients from wandering off. The second-floor window of Manny's room would certainly have been locked to prevent patients from doing exactly what he did - climb out onto the roof. See more »

A bit dumb
20 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

OK - not the best episode. Mr Monk is arrested after walking into someone else's home (thinking it is his own) and it is clear he is having a bad day. While in the nut house for a few days 'rest' he gets involved in the mysterious death of a doctor from several years earlier. And guess what! He solves it - after some business involving Santa Claus and a very angry woman (both patients of the said nut house).This episode shows that anything mentioned earlier always has a bearing on the outcome, so it is pretty much waiting for the flagged objects to turn up later. The crime solved there isn't much mention of his breakdown or whether it will appear again. How mentally ill is the guy? It seems to ebb and flow.
