I'm tempted to say "Dead in the Water" just because I've watched it so many times while zmediaoutlet and I were working on ch. 3 of In a Cursed Hour--though I do also love the visuals, and the glimpse it gives us into everything that Dean's trying to hard to hide about himself, the soft places under his seeming armor. "In the Beginning" is another great one--our first time-travel episode, and the show knocks it out of the park. Guess I'll have to decide when this poll actually goes live....

ETA: Okay, so I goofed, and 3.03 is Bad Day at Bad Rock, not "The Kids Are Alright". I can't edit the poll code anymore, so just go ahead and vote for "The Kids Are Alright" if you mean "Bad Day at Bad Rock", which is what I'm going to do.

I pretty much love all these options, but I went with "In The Beginning". John and Mary young and in love, Dean checking Mary out (and his dry-wit realization about the possible consequences XD), how the Impala became the Winchester family carriage, all the little references to the first "Back To The Future" movie. And of course the whole beginning of the fateful Yellow Eyes story arc. Bonus: Dean in a priest outfit, and the tearful warning he has for Mary about a certain date...

Honorable mentions:

- Dead In The Water: Dean in the beginning at the diner, checking out the waitress and giving Sam his definition of "fun"
- Soul Survivor: Demon!Dean in that red shirt, and hunting Sam through the bunker
- Bad Day At Black Rock: "I lost my shoe" - 'nuff said! + Dean's eyeroll at that
- Free To Be You And Me: "Eat it, twilight" - still one of the best D.W. one-liners! Plus Cas starting the running gag of turning the FBI badge on its head.
- The Third Man: aka the end of Sam's own vehicle ;)
- Heartache: hello, Papa Ackles!
