Goofs

When the engine pulls out of the firehouse to head to Stefanie Preston's house, it makes a right hand turn onto the street. Yet, when Eddie Murdoch is walking into the firehouse, he enters the building walking from the direction opposite of which the engine went. Yet, at the same time, a scene in the flashback shows the fire engine passing Murdoch on the street. 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

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.
