Goofs

The uniform that Natalie has in the hanger bag has captain's rank, 4 stripes, on the sleeves. The uniform Monk is then seen wearing has 2 1/2 stripes, a Lt. Commander's rank. The store clerk, however, still addresses Monk as "Captain Teeger". See more »

Quotes

Monk's Lawyer: Your Honor, my client is not a flight risk. For fourteen years he served the City of San Francisco honorably as a police officer. He still has friends in the department, some of whom are here today and prepared to testify on his behalf. I would also like to point out that, even if he wanted to flee, my client doesn't drive. He also has an obsessive fear of airplanes... and boats... and trucks... and trains.

Homage rather than theft
1 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found the plot of this episode to contain more homage than theft. I am most familiar with "The Fugitive," so I'll limit my references to the similarities between "Monk" and "Fugitive": Sheriff Rawlins is what Gerrard mistakenly calls the Sheriff on the scene of the train wreck in the movie and the sheriff in "Monk" is named Rawlins; the flight through the woods was similar in both works; the search perimeter set up in both works is the same; the similarities between the searches demanded by Rawlins and Gerrard are evident ("every dog house, hen house. . ." "every tricycle . . ."); the request for a helicopter sounds similar in both pieces; the exhortation to search hospitals sounds similar in both as well. I've only seen this episode once, so I can't add more, but view the shared material as something that the writers did for fun rather than out of laziness.
