Mulder's waterbed is shown with a leak spraying water in the air. This might happen if one or more people were lying on the bed or pressing down on the mattress, but the fountain continues to spray when he is out of the bed. Waterbed leaks don't spray so much as ooze. Furthermore, the amount of water lost to cause the degree of saturation on the carpet (not to mention leaking into the apartment below) would mean that the bed would have lost most or all of its water, leaving Mulder waking up lying on the bottom of the mattress box.

Fox Mulder: I know, I missed the meeting.
Dana Scully: No, you didn't *miss* the meeting; you're extraordinarily *late* for the meeting. It's still going on.
Fox Mulder: What are you doing down here?

Disclaimer first: this is my first day of watching X Files (intense, though - watching six episodes from season 6). I started with Field Trip and decided to continue this trip while supplies last.

That said, I'm very impressed by the artful production, as well as by the variety of styles. In a way it reminded me of the broad scale of Hitchcock movies, which range from comedy to thriller to horror.

"Monday" brings in déjà-vu experiences, and I had one: Run Lola Run (1998). Sure, the time loop theme has often been done (as Wikipedia documents), and Groundhog Day is a memorable precedent, but the repeated time in a dramatic/tragic light (bank/grocery store robberies, one or more protagonists dying) still made me wonder whether 1998's Lola (which was shown in the US, even getting an Oscar nomination) also had some influence on 1999's "Monday"...
