Next day, Pauly, Deena and Snooki head to work at the store and they aren't even late; they're two minutes early. Snooki wants to make up for being a bad employee, and swears she's going to be really good this year. She talks to Danny about the possibility of living on her own, so she can get rest and stay healthy during her pregnancy. He says he has a couple other places, but most are taken. However, he happens to have the apartment right next to their place available, so he's going to let her move in there. She thinks it's great that Danny understands and cares. She asks if she can go on break now and he's exasperated. "No! Make a sale."
The girls go to lunch and Snooki tells everyone she's pissed at Vinny. She also plans to tell Jionni about it all, because they're engaged. The girls give her advice on talking to Vinny about it. Snooki makes a trademark "My water broke" joke. And then they go shopping. Snooki wants these cute skinny clothes and Sam asks if they don't make them for pregnant women. Snooki: "Wait till you're pregnant. Maternity World is not cute."
Vinny and Mike hang out on the boardwalk, and Vinny asks about Mike's experience. They basically feel like they are on the same agenda, with Mike's sobriety and Vinny's anxiety: They both have to live in the moment to keep the dark stuff away. Mike says that Vinny connects with him on a level that's not GTL. What?! Is there something deeper than GTL for these fools?
Deena and JWOWW start drinking mid-day and Deena is thrilled she might have found her substitute meatball. Then JWOWW stumps Deena by using the word integrity. Basically, Deena thinks both "shame" and "integrity" mean the same thing. Jenni just laughs and lets Deena try to work it out in her head. She still hasn't worked it out in her camera interview later. She says it's very confusing. JWOWW asks the bartender if she knows what it is, and the bartender says it's, like, self-worth. Deena's like, "Like shame?" But, no. Deena thinks she gets it and then says you can go to school at a bar. Sam and Snooki walk toward the other girls, and Snooki says she's going to be pissed if Jenni drank with Deena because she would never do that mid-day with her. The suspense is building as they get closer to discovering she is drinking, so it's a good time for a commercial. MTV is really keeping us watching with these riveting, suspense-filled cuts to commercial.
Sunday dinner. Mike and Vinny are making a feast. Vinny says, "Pauly sets the table and just yells out random shit. That's what he considers cooking." Sam watches them cook and asks if they put the chicken back on the same pan they put it in when it was raw. Mike says these girls aren't going to become cooks after four summers. She asks more questions and Vinny tells her the answer is obvious. She gets mad about it, but I feel asleep while trying to care.
