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."

Just after the opening credits, Paulie Flores (played by John Kapelos) is watching a San Francisco news program on television that announces the release of "The Wrong Man." Behind the newscaster is a photo of San Francisco that is flipped. In the photo, the Transamerica Pyramid is on the left and the Bay Bridge is on the right. In reality, if you looked at San Francisco from the same vantage point, the Transamerica Pyramid and Bay Bridge would be on the opposite sides (i.e, looking at S.F. from the north, the Pyramid is on the right, the Bay Bridge is on the left).
