What’s the Quiz About?
You have 4 minutes to correctly choose all 15 parts of Dexter’s morning routine in the order that he completes them in at the start of each episode. If you’ve seen the whole series, then you’ve seen this intro sequence 96 times. So this quiz should be easy, right? You’ll quickly find out that your beloved title character’s morning routine is more complex than you anticipated. You start off well, getting the first couple of answers correct. Then you realize that this is the part of Dexter’s routine when you usually stop paying attention. Hopeful, you click coffee beans. BOOM! You should have clicked egg.

MovieGuru expressed everyone’s frustration when he said ‘You’d think after 8 seasons, I’d be able to breeze through this. Nope.’
And Number1LostFan commented ‘Good quiz! It took me forever to figure out the order of his breakfast! After I got that, I flew through it.’
