And this may not be my favorite cold open, but I have to say that 'Back from Vacation' opening was hilarious and definitely ranks up there in terms of my favorites.

Similar to that is the one where Jim surrounds Dwight's desk with police tape. Dwight starts asking loudly if anyone saw anything. Just then, Pam surreptitiously calls Dwight's phone but, despite Jim's urging, he's afraid to cross the line to answer it. When Jim knocks it off the hook, Dwight says something like "Press 1 if you can hear me!"

I'm totally blanking on what episode that is.

I think that might be a deleted scene from Conflict Resolution?

I'm partial to when Jim puts all of Dwight's junk in the vending machine. That's either "Booze Cruise" or "Conflict Resolution", I can't remember which. The fitness orb one is good, as well, and I really enjoyed this week's.

But my favorite, hands-down? I'll give you three guesses, and the first two don't count.

This one was awfully good. I think it's muscling up higher, but it's going to be hard to top "future Dwight" for me. I have a sentimental attatchment, you see.

I like the one that introduces Michael's Fun-Jeans and all the shots of him walking around giggling in them. Classic Michael.
Also, the Basketball one, how Michael disowns Dwight come basketball time, who ends up being better than him, and throughout the rest of the series Dwight just sucks up to him more and more.

The one for Office Olympics (Ryan delivers a sausage-egg-and-cheese biscuit) is underrated. (I think it was the first ever.) Michael's "gotta watch those carbs" is classic.

Is the scene where Michael and Dwight are tossing the football in a sales exercise that turns into a tackle football game a cold opener? I think that's one of my favorites.

Apr 28th 2007

Yep--Dwight's Speech.

The sausage egg and cheese biscuit one always kills me too.

Casino Night. Dwight's grandfather's tux. Jim moving the coat rack. Pam's wink. Jim's smile.

I think you mean cold open, Choose Jim Already!!

You know this thread has lain dormant for a while when no one has answered "your mom."

This is hard (TWSS), but I'm gonna have to go with Booze Cruise.

Jul 28th 2008

My favorite teaser/cold open/hot open is also the one for BC. I absolutely love the vending machine trick.

One fave right of the top of my head is the one from Branch Closing, where Dwight gets the fax from Future Dwight, and nearly tackles Stanley. There are so many more though, it's hard to choose.
