The Pilot (Season 1, Episode 1)
Starting off the series with a nice joke, Jim makes a jello mold in which he puts Dwight's stapler.
Dwight, not to fond of the break in the code of conduct he lives by as a volunteer fire fighter, calls for Michael to fire Jim. Michael thinks the prank is funny and tells Dwight to eat the stapler out of the mold. After a small bout of seriousness, he begins to mock Dwight along with Jim and Ryan. Unfortunately for Michael, all he could come up with is saying, "pudding."
7 - Two things here. First, it probably messes up Dwight's stapler to the point of no longer being able to use it, which is a plus. But, Dwight's comment that Jim put his stapler in jello "again" brings down the points.
4 - This isn't necessarily difficult to do, but it would require Jim to get to the office earlier so that he can place the jello in Dwight's desk. Could have potential if something in the jello could explode.
Jackie Robinson Award - Notable for being the first prank Jim pulls on Dwight in the series, though certainly not the last.
Classic Award - No matter what happens throughout the rest of the series, this one will be the...staple.
