When Marci shows Mr. Monk her diorama of "Mr. Monk and the Three Pies," Marci has a troll doll which she says is supposed to be Natalie. However, Natalie first appeared in the season 3 episode "Mr. Monk and the Red Herring," aired in January 2005, and "Mr. Monk and the Three Pies" aired in January 2004 as a season 2 episode. If it were to be correct, Marci's troll doll should depict Sharona Fleming instead. See more
