Jionni comes to the house, carrying a tray of food and wearing a T-shirt that says, “Give me a Scotch. I’m starving.” He also brought a barbecue grill — unassembled. He and Snooki are going to put it together, because that sort of activity is so good for couples to do together. Early on in the process, Jionni lets out a “What the fuck?!” and Snooki asks if she should go get Brian the Handyman to help. Jionni says no, because he is a man and they are silly that way.
Inside the house, Paul Bunyan has arrived and he comes out to the deck to say hello to Snooki and Jionni. When he sees what the diminutive couple is up to, he tells them that he’s guessing it will take them four to six hours to successfully assemble the grill. “No, we just started, and it’s almost done, Snooki says, gesturing to the frame. Jionni comments that they didn’t fasten the screws tight enough, and then a wheel comes off.
Paul Bunyan is more than willing to collect Jionni’s man card at any time.
“It isn’t going well,” Paul Bunyan interviews. “It was like a five-year-old kid trying to build a pyramid. It was crazy.” He watches for a moment, then goes back inside, chuckling to himself.
Some indeterminate amount of time has passed, and Snooki is inside putting on bubblegum pink lipstick. Paul Bunyan comments that he hasn’t heard any clanking from outside in a while. As soon as he says this, Jionni pokes his head in and calls, “Roger? is Roger here?” Paul Bunyan gets up to help, groaning, “Oh, God.” He reminds Jionni that he recommended that they buy a pre-assembled grill. “I knew that putting this grill together was going to be a little tough,” Jionni interviews, “but nothing was fitting right.” We quickly see that nothing was fitting right because Jionni has no clue at all what he is doing, as Paul Bunyan shows him how the burner is supposed to lie flat at the bottom of the grill instead of hanging off the side which is what Jionni was attempting to make it do. I sincerely hope that Snooki and Jionni get the “in home assembly” option when they buy a crib for their baby.
Paul Bunyan starts teasing Jionni about being the one in college but he can’t put a grill together, and Jionni asks if PB wants to get kicked in the ball sack. “Why is he going to kick you in the ball sack?” JMomm asks, coming outside. Jionni says that he doesn’t have to explain himself to “this kid,” which is an interesting phrase to use given that Paul Bunyan is probably ten years older and a foot taller than Jionni. “Are you guys really fighting out here or fake fighting?” JMomm asks. PB asks her to go get a stool for Jionni so that he can kick him in the balls. “I could easily kick you in the head if I wanted to,” Jionni retorts. “With what?” Paul Bunyan laughs. He interviews that Jionni is a wrestler and thinks that he’s a little bit of a bad ass, “but I’m six-foot three. There’s no way this kid is gonna kick me in the head.”Rather than risking being kicked in the head, however, Paul Bunyan extends his arm out at approximately head height and tells Jionni to prove his leet skills by kicking his hand. After some stalling about not being properly stretched out, Jionni goes for it. He tells us that he is going to get Roger back for busting his balls by kicking him in the head. However, not being mindful of his surroundings, he catches his foot on one of the metal strap thingies on the skylight, bending the metal up and hurting his foot.
I don’t know what this setup is called, so here’s a visual.
