T-shirt Time! Ah, that oh-so-important moment when the boys were officially heading out the door, they'd finally slip on their fresh clean t-shirts and really get the party started. Nowhere else but the Jersey Shore celebrates the occasion, so we'll have to chalk it up to a familiar pastime now.
Meatball Days Every once in a while, one of the castmates would decide to go wild-n-out for an entire day. Sometimes this went off mostly without a hitch, but most of the time it led toexcessively incoherent arguments and occasional lock-ups. Fun times.
The Smush Room The very fact that the cast designated a room for one another to get down with their various partners throughout the series set it miles apart from reality show predecessors like The Real World. While there was always a little ick factor involved with the Smush Room — i.e., were those sheets washed? — it certainly made for some insane TV.
GTL The boys of the Jersey Shore coined the term GTL, which stands for "gym, tan, laundry," and had the whole world talking about it. Such a simple mantra for how to start the day out with "maximum potential," but boy did these guys follow it faithfully.
Fist-Pumping Start low and work your way up. That was the way to do it. At some point or another, every club in America saw an emulator or two take on the Jersey Shore gang’s signature move. It was just that good.
