The next morning, Deena, Ronnie, and Snooki report for their final shift and the Shore Store. Snooki idly comments, "I think I still smell like ketchup." Probably because you didn't shower, you little dirty Meatball. They spend the whole day planning their camping trip. Clearly spray tan and hair gel are must-have camping accessories for the outdoorsy guido or guidette. Elsewhere, MVP head out for some good, old-fashioned GTL.
Once she gets back home, Deena makes plans with Joey in spite of how badly their last encounter ended. Deena admits she might be rushing a relationship because all her friends are coupled up. She's certainly not doing it on the advice of her roommates, who are unanimously against the idea of Joey. They brashly tell her to stop wasting her time. The thing they all don't seem to get -- and that Deena seems painfully aware of -- is that the homelier of the Meatballs doesn't have a lot of options. Roger aside, you don't see JWOWW playing wingman so Vinny will have a back-up trick when the lesbian he's pursuing doesn't suddenly stop preferring vagina. This is not something JWOWW has to do. Like how pretty people don't have to be clever or funny. It's not that they can't be, they just don't have to. Deena has to be clever (I use that term loosely), funny, and a turnpiking wingman. She knows her lot in this hierarchy, is what I'm saying.
Nonetheless, the mob rules. A few hours later, Joey shows up and calls the house (despite the fact that he is literally standing outside and could just knock on the door). Deena watches uselessly as Pauly lies that Deena is sick and basically tells Joey to buzz off. Seconds later, Joey calls again. JWOWW answers and calls Joey out for not offering "sick" Deena chicken noodle soup. She tells him that Deena is moving on to the next, "now take care, enjoy your summer, buh-bye now!" Click.
That night, MVP heads to Aztec, Snooki and Jionni stay inside, and everyone else heads to Jimbo's. Deena is disappointed that her fellow Meatball isn't there for her, but we can't ponder the sad abyss of loneliness too long because The Situation is vulture-ing it up at da club, picking up the carrion of a girl who just left a nine year relationship when her boyfriend cheated on her. Back to the inherent loneliness of existence! Deena complains to JWOWW about how Snooki has basically has basically abandoned her. She tearfully interviews, "It's like one Meatball stands alone." It would be funny if it weren't a legitimately sad moment.
