Water has seeped through the floor to the apartment below and the resident calls to complain. On arrival at the X-files basement office in the FBI building Scully informs him he is late for a meeting with Assistant Director Skinner, but Mulder has to make a bank deposit to cover the cheque he wrote to his landlord for the damages. Mulder goes to the Cradock Marine Bank down the street from the FBI offices. In a car outside a woman, Pam and a man, Bernard sit talking. Bernard tells Pam he has to run an errand but when he gets inside the bank he starts a robbery. Moments later Scully enters the bank looking for Mulder and draws her gun, in all the commotion Mulder is shot. As Scully tries to help Mulder, who lies bleeding, riot police alerted by the silent alarm storm the bank. Bernard knowing he is trapped detonates the explosives strapped to his chest destroying the bank....Monday morning and Mulder awakes to find his water bed has leaked, shorting out his alarm clock making him late.....and so it goes on, time appears to be repeating itself in a loop, forcing Mulder and Scully to continually relive the experience with small variations but always the same result, the bank is blown up. Only the woman Pam appears conscious of the time loop, of the events repeating themselves and tries in vain to alert the two agents to their shared predicament.

Noteworthy Quote

Mulder: "Scully, did you ever have one of those days you wish you could rewind and start all over again from the beginning?"

Scully: "Yes, frequently. But I mean, who's to say that if you did rewind it and start over again that it wouldn't end up exactly the same way?"
