Maria says that she was going blind due to retinitis pigmentosa (RP), until she received a cornea transplant. This makes no sense: retinitis pigmentosa affects the retina, which is at the back of the eye, while the cornea is at the front of the eye. There is no known cure for RP. See more »

wonderful play on classic theme of an individual witnessing an event that all evidence denies ever happened.

Best Episode of "Monk" ever. Very well written, complicated plot line. The story is set in San Francisco in the wee hours and the action takes place in a funky bar, a train station, an alley way, a cab stand, a closed and gated little coin shop,the utility room of a very ordinary little restaurant, in a newspaper delivery truck, and along the dark streets of a city closed up for the night. More plot-driven than the typical "Monk," with less emphasis on the main characters quirks though the quirks exist in relationship to the action. There is a definite film noir feel to it and has the archly drawn characters that the genre is famous for.
