Eventually, two plumbers arrive. Snooki shows them the scene of the grime, noting that "the fat one is actually kind of cute, like I would hang out with that." The plumber assures her (weakly) that he's not scared of the toilet and promises to fix their problem. After assessing the toilet, he tells them they might need to take the entire toilet out. He asks how long they've had a problem, and Snooki tells him it's been about two weeks. He says he's surprised they don't have maggots. MAGGOTS. In the time they let this toilet sit and rot to the point they almost had motherfucking maggots, these people made $60,000 apiece. What is wrong with this picture? Oh, but it's not over. After bringing in both a WetVac and an industrial-strength plumbing snake, the plumbers ass-ertain the problem: Someone flushed a frigging T-shirt down the toilet. Size small. Must be Vinny. The best part is that Snooki then asks if the guys will clean the bathroom when they're done. Holy. Cannoli. WTF?!
After JWOWW calls Roger to update him on this new development, everyone eventually gathers around. Vinny insists it wasn't his shirt, but JWOWW says she thinks it's understandable that someone might have dropped a T-shirt down the toilet pre- or post-shower and just tried to flush it instead of fishing it out of the tank. (No, Ms. WOWW, that is not understandable, but continue...) Vinny maintains his innocence, so Pauly comes up with some abstruse alien parable, the gist of which is, "You did it, bro. Fess up."
It's all pretty secondary for JWOWW, though, because what she really wants is for someone to take ownership by cleaning the bathroom. Despite the fact that she had nothing to do with the flushed T-shirt, Snook acknowledges that she hasn't cleaned anything the entire time she's been at the house and decides to tackle this chore. Lots of squealing ensues. And then she drops the cap of the toilet bowl cleaner into the actual toilet bowl. And you know that, even after all this, she totally tried to flush that thing. I hope they're keeping those plumbers on retainer...
As the day wears on, Sammi notices that Ronnie is a changed man, happier and nicer than usual. Along with Snooki, they try to figure out what to do that night and decide to switch things up by staying sober for an evening. So where do they head? The bar. Naturally. Meanwhile, the rest of the housemates head out to another bar. Vinny lays ground for a ménage with a bicurious trick and her girlfriend. JWOWW reunites with Roger. And Old Man Sorrentino checks the IDs of his potential smash partners to make sure they're of age. Ummmm, okay.
