A number of topics can be seen on the stacks of index cards Monk prepares for his telephone conversation with Michelle from the power plant, including: investigation, where from?, thinking about you, history, English lit, biology, organic produce, reality television, travel: US, travel: Europe, 2004 compact sedans, 2004 film festivals, and, of course, Trudy.

When the power plant bomber places the first bomb, the kitchen timer he uses as the detonation device does not begin to tick until he attaches the electrodes. A mechanical timer like he was using would begin ticking as soon as it was wound. When placing the second bomb, he winds the timer after connecting the electrodes and it begins to tick as it should. However, we see him wind it at least a quarter-turn, which, assuming that the timer is a sixty-minute timer as most are, would cause the alarm to go off in at least fifteen minutes. Unless the elevator ride was extremely slow, Monk and Michelle should have been able to make it down and out in time. See more
