Different every episode. So many different gags in every opening (the blackboard, the couch, now the billboard and more). A true classic.

Morning routine - ordinary, but disturbingly violent and aggresive. Like Dexter himself.

Some nice choices on here, and some I'm not as familiar with. Definitely agree with your number one choice though.
