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

A bulldozer trying to uproot a tree that size would have had to contend with a much larger root structure than the one depicted in the scene. It wouldn't have been so easily toppled. See more »

Another loser.
23 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dear guernsey-1, no one cares about meaningless "technical errors." Furthermore, there is no reason why the producers of a successful cable series would see fit to hire YOU, a nobody, to act as technical adviser. As for the episode itself, this is one of my personal favorites. The scene with Monk and the Alicia Coppola character climbing forty flights of stairs is an all-time Monk classic. Other choice scenes include Monk trapped on an elevator with a plus-sized woman whose presence brings the total poundage dangerously close to maximum capacity. And let's not forget Judge Reinhold (yet another Seinfeld cameo: he was the obnoxious "close-talker") up in a tree protesting something or other. Rating: 10 out of 10.
