The clip is just being replayed.

Elliot goes to take a look, but notice the bed in the middle of the room. We see a shot of him and the bed, a shot of Liz then a shot of Elliot walking to the bathroom. So, in reality, Elliot walked through the bed to get to the bathroom, but it is back in the next shot.

Question: In the scene where Elliot signs the contract, there is a magnificent red fountain pen on top of the papers. Does anybody know what the pen is, or if it is even a real commercial pen?

Answer: It definitely is a Montegrappa Oriental Zodiac pen, this brand has been making pens in Italy since 1912. I am not sure which of the three red pens in that collection (Oriental Zodiac) is the one seen in the movie, but given its association with the devil, my guess will be it is the Ox fountain pen.
