MTV's reality hit Jersey Shore had its original series finale in 2012, but did it ever really go away? The TV show infiltrated the pop culture landscape in 2008 (remember all those Snooki Halloween costumes?) spawning a new breed of unescapable slang that America just can't stop repeating all these years later. Jersey Shore quotes are a part of this world forever, whether you like it or not.
If you think the days of "T-shirt time" and "meatball power" are over, think again. Reboots and reunions are par for the course in entertainment these days, so it's only natural for an iconic reality show like Jersey Shore to get another shot. Jersey Shore Family Vacation premiered on MTV on April 5, and reassembled most of the cast who went on to become household (nick)names as a result of the show's success. Yup — Snooki, JWoww, Deena, The Situation, Pauly D, Vinny, and Ronnie are bringing their talents to South Beach, Miami, for more on-camera shenanigans. These people were once considered the Avengers of partying, so of course fans want to resurrect some of that fist-pumping glory in 2018.
Nowadays, some of the original Shore members have their own families and significant others at home — but what's a little fun in the summer sun for old time's sake?
Ah, we can smell the Ron Ron juice already. Is it possible to develop a secondhand hangover just by watching this trailer?
If you need to brush up on the intricate language of the Jersey Shore, now is as good a time as any. Here are the quotes that the cast blessed us with — may you continue to use them in your every day lives accordingly.
