Did You Know?


This episode marks the first appearance of Melora Hardin as Trudy Monk, who had been portrayed previously by Stellina Rusich during the first two seasons of the show. Rusich is a Canadian actress who was originally hired when the show was being produced in Canada. When the production was moved back to Los Angeles it was no longer practical to bring Stellina down when she was needed. The producers decided to hire an American actress as they were planning to feature Trudy in a number of future episodes. See more »


The fact that Lizzie Talvo finds a road where she can gain such a high speed before she hit the brakes the first time is almost impossible. Most people's first step for getting in a car is to depress the brake. If a car is in a driveway it's likely that the person will brake in the driveway. It's unlikely anyone would get on a road where you could travel at such a high speed on a winding road with out braking. The brake line should have been cut enough where she would have noticed a problem or it gave out before then. See more »


Adrian Monk: [on the phone with Sharona, talking about Kevin] He's in the kitchen right now, naming every egg salad sandwich he's ever had... Eight, including today... It's - it's not funny... Stop. Stop laughing... Look, Sharona, I - I don't know why you asked him to look in on me, I - I'm not a child! Please stop laughing!... Okay, I'll call you back. Give her my best!... Okay. And when you come back... bring a gun.
