Bowling, personal stuff, errands and computer issues -- Showtime has compiled a supercut of all the impromptu excuses Dexter (Michael C. Hall) has come up with over the years as he prepares to off someone, is in the middle of the process or is disposing of the body. ("I'm following the Oregon Trail," he offers at one point.)
He's not always the world's most smoothly convincing liar, though the deliberate mundanity of his fabrications works in his favor. With "Dexter" approaching its eighth and final season, maybe the time will finally come for him to pick up the phone and yell "Dammit, Deb, I'm busy murdering someone right now, so this better be important"?
