Trivia

The paint scheme of the fire engines in this episode is fictional. These engines have the words "Fire Rescue" printed onto the sides of the vehicles in italic font, with the word "Fire" being printed in the same font just behind the rear wheels. Real SFFD livery does not feature this, although the words appear in different locations on the vehicles. The SFFD seal on the cab of the engine (seen when Natalie walks into the firehouse) has a font and style matching the real logo, but the text beneath the seal should denote the vehicle's status as an Engine Company or a Ladder Company.

Goofs

When the fire engine is leaving the firehouse, and when it passes Eddie Murdoch on the street, it is obvious that it is a standard pumper engine. Yet, when it is seen parked outside Stefanie Preston's house in the summation, it clearly appears to be a vehicle of a different model. See more »

Adrian Monk: Now, the table is here.

Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: No, Monk. The table... is here.
[He points Monk's hand at the table]

[Stottlemeyer redirects his hand]
Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Pole's there.
Adrian Monk: I can't do this.
Natalie Teeger: You can do this. Mr. Monk, just concentrate, okay? Just try to picture the room. You can do this, you have an amazing memory!

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.
