Trivia

The scene in which the first bomb is placed ends with a close-up of the ticking timer on the bomb. The scene quickly cuts to show Monk, Sharona and Benjy playing a timed board game and Benjy yells, "Time's up!". See more »

Goofs

During a close-up shot of the side of the bulldozer, we see that the "C" in the brand decal "CAT" has been modified to an "O" so that it reads "OAT." The next shot is of the front of the bulldozer where we can clearly read "CATERPILLAR". In yet the next shot, showing the opposite side of the bulldozer, the decal clearly reads "CAT." See more »

another technical error
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You really need a technical consultant, As I commented before for the episode "The Captain's Wife," I should be glad to help edit material for future shows. In the ending of the confrontation with the "bad guy" Mr Monk is using what is apparently a Russian surplus night vision device. He doesn't realize when the lights come on. That would be impossible. As soon as the lights come on, the "night-sight" would bloom out,that is the field of vision would become totally white and he would not see anything, and it would probably permanently disable the device. Other than that, excellent episode. I have ideas for future episodes: Mr.Monk solves Trudy's murder; Mr. Monk and Columbo, and Mr Monk and the Coven.
