Sam decides she wants to lock the boys out on the deck as a prank. None of the other girls are interested. Sam heads up there, where the guys are talking about the girls, tells them hi and she'll leave them alone, then locks them out there. Pauly's like, "They're going to prank us." They all agree they're up to something, so Pauly gets up to go see and discovers the locked door. They think the girls are going to come and hit them with water balloons, but Vinny says he'll punch them in the face if they do. Because he's from Staten Island. Where apparently they make 'em real classy. The guys think they can jump down to the lower deck, and they throw a pillow down as a test. Mike's not afraid because he always lands on his feet. Sam decides to go unlock the door because she doesn't want to do it anymore. Mike's about to jump when Sam lets them out. But Pauly thinks the girls should have learned they are worse pranksters. Ron lectures Sam about her actions, like he's her father.
Mike, Pauly, and Ron head to GTL, while Vinny stays home sipping cold medicine. They go to the tanning salon, where Paula's working. Mike thinks she's looking fine, and Pauly says, "Awkward!" Ron tells us it's really not that awkward until he and Pauly make it so. Paula leaves a note for Mike in his tanning bed, but he waits to read it until they're home. Vinny reads it aloud to the whole house. She basically tells him how much she misses him, how patience has been important in their four years and she's pretty good at it. "LOL." Vinny's horrified that she put LOL in a note, but Snooki's like, "I still put it!" She says Mike makes her so happy and is the most special thing in her life. She asks him to not give up on her either, and to give her the effort and love she's always given to him. He says he likes the note and she looked hot again today. Vinny says she's back to being the booty call. Both Snooki and Mike are happy to be participating in this conversation together. Snooki says Paula's pretty, and she stares at her. Mike agrees and is feeling pretty good about her now.
