Trivia

This episode is an adaptation of Lee Goldberg's original tie-in novel 'Mr. Monk Goes to The Firehouse'. See more »

Goofs

During the alleyway scene, Stottlemeyer says that the house that burned down was just around the corner from the alleyway where Jake Colbert said he found the fireman's coat and helmet. Earlier, Stottlemeyer mentioned that the alley was in the Tenderloin district of downtown San Francisco. In the Tenderloin, there are SROs, not nice homes as shown in the episode. Similarly, the architecture of the buildings around the firehouse is not of a type seen in the Tenderloin. From the design of the building and the power lines around, the firehouse could more easily be placed in a different part of San Francisco, like the Sunset District. See more »

Quotes

[first lines; Rusty delivers lunch to his crew at Fire Company 53]
Rusty: All right, gentlemen. Here they are. Get 'em while they're warm.
First Fireman: Hey Rusty, what's in these? In case my doctor needs to know.
Rusty: Let me tell you wise guys something: when I was on payroll, we *respected* our elders. I come in here, I volunteer, do I get a "Thank you, Rusty?" No, I get jokes! And they aren't even funny jokes! They're old and stale.
Captain Stockton: Come on Rusty, we all love you! You know that. Look, I'm eating one!

Unoriginal and Original plot elements
13 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Our star detective has lost his eyesight for a few days because someone attacked him at his local firehouse.

This story is based on Lee Goldberg's novel 'Mr. Monk Goes to the Firehouse.' In fact, I have found that at least four characters in the episode are based off of novel characters:

1. Captain Stockton, the fire captain, analogs to Captain Mantooth from the novel.

2. Stefanie Preston, the fire victim, analogs to Esther Stoval and Lizzie Draper from the novel.

3. Peter Breen analogs to Lucas Breen.

4. Rusty, the murdered firefighter, analogs to Sparky, the murdered firehouse dog.

5. There is no analog to Eddie Murdoch.

This is actually one of my favorite episodes. Sometimes, I've even tried imagining tying some of the elements of this story in with the novel 'Mr. Monk and the Dirty Cop' by Lee Goldberg, not that that would ever happen.
