This week’s episode starts out with Mike secretly pulling Jionni outside and tells him that he (Mike) and Nicole hooked up before they went to Italy. Jionni looks Mike in the eyes, shakes his hand, and thanks him for sharing. Jionni then goes back to bed with Nicole, but first he tells her about the conversation he just had and that he doesn’t believe it’s true. They fall back asleep.
Later that morning, Mike, Sam, and Ron are on the patio and Mike tells them about the conversation and Jionni barely reacted. This made Sam question Jionni’s feelings for Nicole.
At breakfast, Nicole yells at Mike for making up rumors and trying to ruin her relationship. She throws pickles at him, but it starts in good fun, even though she is angry. Nicole and Jionni decide they should go out and get away from Mike, who is at the house.
Since Mike is at the house, he takes this opportunity to tell Vinny and Pauly about his conversation with Jionni. The guys laugh and joke that Jionni took is so well because he is probably out cheating too. They say Nicole and Jionni’s relationship is a joke (hmm…aren’t they engaged and expecting a child now?)
That night, the roommates are having dinner all together. Nicole suggests they all go camping, exciting everyone but Pauly. They plan the trip for that week. Then, a food fight starts. Everyone is throwing all the food at everyone and loving it…their hotdog and macaroni salad dinner is over everyone…the mood of the house quickly changes…the food fight turns personal- Mike and Nicole are outside throwing everything they get their hand on at the other. Everyone else is watching, mostly in disbelief. They all go in the living room to get away from Nicole and Mike. In the living room, they discuss the situation at hand. No one is really sure who is telling the truth, but Vinny predicts Mike is because of how angry Nicole is. He says liars react when they get caught (isn’t is possible Nicole is mad because she doesn’t want her boyfriend to break up with her? Hmm…).
The next morning, Ron, Nicole, and Deena go to their last shift of the summer. They are making a grocery list for their camping trip, which includes nail glue, bronzer, and extra toilet paper.
At home, Deena calls Joey and invites him to get dinner and hang out on the boardwalk. He agrees. Nicole tries to tell Deena this kid isn’t any good for her, but Deena doesn’t listen. A few minutes later, Pauly and Vinny sit Deena down and say Joey is just using her for sex and she shouldn’t waste her time with him. The message starts getting through, but she still wants to give him a chance. When Joey arrives to pick her up, he calls the house and Pauly answers. He tells Joey that Deena isn’t feeling well and she can’t go out with him tonight. Joey is mad because he drove a long time to get her. They hang up, but Joey calls back, hoping to talk to Deena, but on the other end is Jenni. Jenni goes off on Joey, telling him that he should offer Deena soup or medicine if he cared about her. She says she hates snakes and will call them out for their behavior and if that is what he is doing with her friend, he better move on. I sure wouldn’t want to make Jenni mad! The group goes out anyways, and has a good time at Aztec. As usual, Nicole stays in with Jionni even though Deena really wants her to come out.
The next day, Pauly and Vinny stay home when everyone else leaves to go camping. Pauly confesses he wouldn’t have minded going camping, except he has a plan since the house is now empty: They are going to turn the house inside out. The duo invites Danny and other Shore Store co-workers because they need some “man power.”
At the campsite, Mike pitches his tent with no problems. Jenni and the meatballs get theirs up easily. Ron is struggling with his and Sam’s, but they work together and get it up.
Meanwhile, Pauly and Vinny are drawing floor plans for each room in the house. Danny and their co-workers come over, bringing with them astro-turf for the living room. The house is completely flipped around: The porch furniture is in set up in the living room, the living room is set up outside, their bedrooms are completely empty and set up outside, there is even a kiddie pool inside to be the Jacuzzi.
At the campsite, Mike pulls down an entire branch of a small tree and lights it on fire. He is starting to feel paranoid and searches the perimeter for bears and serial killers (If I didn’t know what Pauly and Vinny were up to, I’d think they were hiding in the trees as a prank). Around the fire, the girls discuss the recent situation: their feelings about Nicole’s constant hanging out with Jionni. She gets defensive, but understands where they are coming from, putting herself in Deena’s shoes. In the morning, they decide to go home because of all the bugs and spiders.
Next week, there is a special about Nicole’s pregnancy and engagement to Jionni. It airs on MTV Thursday at 7:30. See http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1680613/snooki-pregnant-engaged-jionni-lavalle.jhtml for more information!
