Did You Know?


The headlines in the news ticker during the scene where Paulie Flores sees a TV story about Max Barton's release allude to other season 6 episodes of ''Monk'':
  • 1. "Local Boys Find Buried Treasure in Cement Processing Plant" ("Mr. Monk and the Buried Treasure")

  • 2. "Frisco Fly acrobatic stunts leave San Francisco officials perplexed." ("Mr. Monk and the Daredevil")

  • 3. "Novato Housing Market Hits a Record High." ("Mr. Monk and the Bad Girlfriend")

  • 4. The fourth article on the ticker starts "Extra Large and Murderuss..." although it is cut short. However, the names used do make it a clear reference to "Mr. Monk and the Rapper."

The legal effect of the exoneration is the defendant has asked that his first trial (his conviction) be erased (as if it never happened), allowing for a new trial on the original charge. Double Jeopardy is not an issue, since it is at the defendant's request. Unless the trial is erased, the conviction stands. What the Fifth Amendment prevents is the reverse: If a defendant is acquitted, the state cannot ask to have that trial be erased. See more »
