Everyone is in love this week at the "Jersey Shore" house.

Last week Jenny and her boyfriend, Roger, got into a huge argument, and it seemed as though Jwoww needed to start looking for a new gorilla juicehead. This week they patch things up, and Roger even comes over to the shore house to visit her. That night when they go out, Jenny wears a barely there outfit to remind Roger of why he’s with her. Jenny seems to have forgotten the small fact that when you wear clothes that skimpy, creeps take notice. It seems that next week Roger will have to get in a fight with some of the creeps to defend Jenny’s honor… or what’s left of it.

Deena likes a boy named Joey. They’ve hooked up in the past, and Deena brings him home so they can “do more sex.” While Deena is getting ready for bed, she leaves poor Joey alone with Snooki and Jwoww. The girls proceed to ask him if they can watch him and Deena have sex, and he just sits nervously laughing. Upon finding out that he doesn’t have a condom, Snooki, being weirdly super responsible, takes one from Vinny to give to Deena’s new smush buddy. Joey looks like he might die of embarrassment, but seems to calm down once Deena and his clothes start coming off.

The Situation still likes his constant hook-up, Paula. On his birthday, she gave him some birthday sex. So, on this week’s episode he returns the favor for her's.

Ron and Sam still aren’t fighting! Miracles do come true.

In other roommate news…

The meatballs make a cake for Danny to apologize for skipping out on work. The next morning when Deena goes to take the cake into work she realizes someone has eaten a chunk of it. She immediately blames Mike. Everyone loves a let’s blame The Situation bandwagon, so very soon everyone, even Danny, thinks Mike ate the cake. Mike swears it wasn’t him because he’s on a diet. When no one believes him, he says, “I’m actually guilty in this house until proven innocent”. Deena gets home from work, and Pauly tells her that he’s actually the one who ate the cake. Everyone laughs about it because it’s Pauly and you can never get mad at Pauly. And Deena half apologizes to Mike. She even says, “The kid really does get blamed for everything”. This debacle, of course, only adds fuel to Mike’s fire as he continues to plot revenge on the house.

Jenny takes Snooki to the doctor to get her urinary tract infection checked out. The doctor prescribes Snooki some antibiotics, and tells her she can’t drink a lot while taking it. He must not have realized who he was talking to. That night everyone goes out and Snooki gets wasted. She says, “I just gave in. And I drank. And I drank. And I drank. I honestly drank so much that I know my freaking UTI was drunk.”.

Snooki can’t tell time. She says, “I have no idea how to speak clock language. So when I say, ‘Hi. What time is it?’ and somebody says, ‘A quarter past two’.  Just say it’s two thirty”.

Thank goodness "Jersey Shore" airs at an o’clock or the show would be in some real trouble.
