Trivia

At the end, the captain says that they have been put on retainer and guaranteed 16 homicides a year for 2 years. This is how long the series had been extended for at the time (16 episodes for 2 years). See more »

Goofs

When Jennie Mandeville first goes into the police office she reports robbing the Commercial Savings Trust in Sausalito. Sausalito is across the Bay from San Francisco, completely out of their jurisdiction. Jennie should have realized this (and picked a bank inside the city) but even if she didn't know any better, Lt. Disher would never have bothered to take her statement. He would have instead arranged for her transfer to Sausalito and been done with it. See more »

Quotes

A Very Silly (Too Silly) Episode
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mr. Monk, the cheapskate, is broke as usual, negligent is paying Natalie, as usual, reluctant to ask for a raise, as usual, and is solving cases for free, as usual. All of this has Natalie upset, naturally, until she sees that there is a one million dollar reward for anyone who solves the recent heist from a local museum of a diamond worth $20 million.

Monk has competition for the reward money: three goof-ball stereotypes (a retired Scotland Yard man, a nerd-like skinny young guy and a crude Dog-like bounty hunter, complete with pony tail. They follow Monk every step of the way, hoping to cash in on his intelligence, since Monk is the only one figuring things out.

This was a fun episode until the last dozen minutes when it got really silly, too silly, with an unsatisfying ending.
