Sometimes, every once in a while, actual magic happens.
And the news that Jersey Shore is returning to MTV for a brand new season?
If that’s not magic, who knows what is?
The new season premieres on April 5th on MTV, and to prepare ourselves for that glorious day, let’s take a few moments to look back at some of the most memorable scenes in Jersey Shore history.
Grab a nice tall glass of Ron Ron Juice, make sure your hair is straightened and your t-shirt is as fresh as possible … and let’s do this.
During the first season of Jersey Shore, some guy just hauled off and punched Snooki. Right in the face. For no real reason. He was immediately arrested, the horrific event served as a bonding moment for everyone, and an entire nation was somehow endeared to Snookers.
In the grand scheme of things, Angelina wasn’t on the show for very long at all, but she still left an impression — a very, very bad one. In this legendary scene, Snooki attacks her after she announces her feelings that the rest of the cast members are “fake.” Because on the Shore, them’s fightin’ words.
“Hold up,” you may be wondering at this point. “Are all these iconic moments just fights?” And honestly, yeah, a lot of them are. But could you honestly say that special moments like this one, the one where JWoww gets so trashed that she gets kicked out of a club and then blames it on The Situation and tries to hit him in retaliation, aren’t the most memorable?
Remember the beautiful bromance between Pauly D and Vinny? Here’s one of the most precious moments they shared on the show — it’s enough to bring a tear to your eye.
This clip in itself isn’t necessarily iconic, but it focuses on two things that will always be heavily associated with Jersey Shore — pranks and the word “smush.” In the clip, JWoww has plans to use the Smush Room for an evening with her boyfriend, but Pauly and Vinny aren’t having it.
While we’re talking about classic Jersey Shore terms, we have to talk about grenades, right? Like the last clip, this one itself isn’t what’s iconic — it’s just a really solid example of how seriously the guys took grenades. Which was very, very seriously.
