Did You Know?


Monk's favorite bottled water, Sierra Springs, is a recurring talking point throughout the first 5 seasons, until this episode when Marci confirms Monk has switched to Summit Creek. See more »


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 »
