Trivia

The exhibit is called the Cromwell Collection. This could be one of five references to the Star Trek franchise. James Cromwell had a starring role in Star Trek: First Contact (1996) & Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Starship Down (1995). See more »

Goofs

Lt. Disher and other officers refer to the theft of the diamond as a "robbery", which is incorrect. The theft is actually a "burglary". A robbery is theft from a person, through force or fear. A burglary is theft of an item from inside a structure. This is a common mistake, however any law-enforcement officer across the country knows the difference between the two, and would never mistake one for the other. See more »

A Very Silly (Too Silly) Episode
13 December 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Mr. Monk, the cheapskate, is broke as usual, negligent is paying Natalie, as usual, reluctant to ask for a raise, as usual, and is solving cases for free, as usual. All of this has Natalie upset, naturally, until she sees that there is a one million dollar reward for anyone who solves the recent heist from a local museum of a diamond worth $20 million.

Monk has competition for the reward money: three goof-ball stereotypes (a retired Scotland Yard man, a nerd-like skinny young guy and a crude Dog-like bounty hunter, complete with pony tail. They follow Monk every step of the way, hoping to cash in on his intelligence, since Monk is the only one figuring things out.

This was a fun episode until the last dozen minutes when it got really silly, too silly, with an unsatisfying ending.
