Meanwhile, Snooki's best friend Ryder has already arrived in Jersey. Vinny admits that he feels slightly awkward because he previously made a pass at her but Snooki has specifically told him not to sleep with her best friend. Deena decides to keep her company in Snooki's absence and the pair head to the bar for margaritas and shots to celebrate Ryder's recent 22nd birthday. "I'm like the substitute Nicole right now," says Deena. Snooki and JWoww arrive home later and everybody heads out clubbing, but problems surface between Sammi and Ronnie when she suspects he's been talking to another woman at the bar, although he says it's just the girlfriend of his friend. Vinny, however, is having a better night. He's found a beautiful girl named Gina and, despite her protective relatives, he manages to get her back home with him. Pauly D and Mike also have "random" girls
Everybody gets stuck into some pizza back at the house but all is not well between Sammi and Ronnie upstairs. She's accusing him of "touching" another girl at the bar but he's adamant he didn't. "You never love me, you hate me," says Sammi. "No, that's your own imagination..." he replies. Their argument heats up (everyone in the kitchen can hear) and Sammi eventually storms off downstairs for some pizza. Back upstairs, Ronnie's throwing everything she owns out of the closet and onto the floor. "What have I done to her in Jersey?" he asks Mike. "Nothing! I have bent over backwards for that girl!" Sammi returns upstairs with some pizza for Ronnie but he's unimpressed. "I don't get an apology," he says. "I get a piece of pizza, not a protein shake! You bring me a pizza of all things! Really?"
Meanwhile, Vinny unearths a "grenade whistle" to warn the residents of Seaside that there is a grenade in the house, before his evening is cut short with the arrival of Gina's relatives. "What is this? Romeo And Juliet?" he questions. She wants him to get in touch but he's not interested. "As beautiful as I think she is, knowing she has a swarm of guys around her doesn't make me want to call her again."
Elsewhere, Ron's lying on the couch downstairs looking dejected. JWoww tries to comfort him but he begins to cry when he says that he wants to be happy with Sam because he loves her. JWoww agrees that he deserves to be happy but adds: "You don't deserve to be punished, you didn't do anything wrong." She also reveals a possible motive for penning the anonymous letter to Sam. "We told her the truth for her to leave," she whispers. "For you to be yourself. We didn't know she would flip the script or in a million years I'd get in a fight with her."
Upstairs, Mike is searching for condoms in Ronnie's drawer, and also reveals to Sammi that Ronnie is currently talking to JWoww. Sammi is enraged and immediately jumps out of bed and storms downstairs. She demands to know if Ronnie and JWoww are now friends, warning that she'll leave if that's true. Ronnie stays silent as Sam continues to ask the same question before punching him in the face and heading inside. She phones her mum and says she needs to go home right now. "The last person she had in this house she just pushed away," says Ronnie. Vinny finds Sammi packing upstairs. "This is God telling me to go," she says. "No," replies Vinny. "God isn't your ego." He thinks she is starting to act like Angelina, while Pauly insists that she still has friends in the house and should stay. Sammi, however, doesn't want to listen to them.
Meanwhile, Snooki's out shopping for a stripper pole (which Vinny instals in the kitchen) and Deena and her Ronnie look-a-like date Dean are out with Jenni and Roger. JWoww admits that she thought Roger might be a good rebound guy but she's actually starting to develop strong feelings for him. Deena, however, finds her feelings for Dean disappearing when the guys tell her about a rumour they heard at the barber's. It seems someone has been revealing secrets about what Deena allegedly likes to do in bed. "I don't think I'd share a drink or cigarette or anything that has to do with touching Deena's lips in the near future," says Mike. Deena insists the rumour is completely untrue and confronts Dean at Karma that evening. He insists that he never said anything and the pair agree to go their separate ways.
Elsewhere in Karma, Jenni decides to take the first step at improving her relationship with Sammi. She offers to buy her a drink but Sammi says that she'll accompany her to the bar. Sammi says that she knows JWoww was only looking out for Ronnie's best interests, prompting Jenni to say that she would be there for Sam too if she needed her. "I'm done with the mean bone in my body," says Sammi as the girls hug it out, and Jenni predicts there will be a good vibe at the house from now on...
