Jersey Shore's fourth season continued Thursday, and the cast was rather hot and bothered as they got more comfortable in Florence, Italy.
While they got new jobs at a pizzeria and learned the art of grocery shipping in a foreign country, the theme of the episode was love -- or a sleazy resemblance of such.
Among the new developments:
Deena continued her aggressive pursuit of Pauly D, sending him not-so-subtle clues by slinking into his bed in her underwear, though the flashy record-spinner was having none of it, pretending to sleep so as not to cause drama in the house if she falls for him.
Someone who's seemingly never passed up a roll in the hay -- The Situation -- got plenty of amore as usual: He hooked up with a sexy blond tourist from Florida named Britney, while continuing to court Snooki (who despite having a boyfriend, was upset The Sitch brought the girl home).
"You're not just someone I can take home," The Sitch sweet talked Snooki. "I care for you more than a friend ... like, I've grown to love your personality."
Still, Snooki held true to her relationship and didn't submit to his advances (or should we say ab-vances?).
And despite all of their vicious -- sometimes violent -- season three exchanges, Sammi showed she still holds a torch for Ronnie, snuggling up to her juiced-up ex and telling him she still loves him.
Ronnie's response to her undying love: "F**k me with a spiked bat," he said in an off-camera interview.
Jersey Shore airs on MTV Thursdays at 10/9c.
