Deena Nicole Cortese: What? Was there a gas leak in here? Jeez! I think your blogs finally got to your guys' heads.
Pauly D: Hey!
Snooki: Hey! Who you guys voting for in November?
Ronnie Ortiz Magro: Ah, Snooks! Who cares?!
JWoww: Yeah [??]
Snooki: What the F is wrong with you people? I have a baby inside of me! I am seriously worried about this country's future.
Sammi Giancola: Hey, I care. It just seems like individual votes matter much less. It's like what's the point?
Vinny Guadagnino: Uh, you guys realize that this type of apathy is damaging towards our younger generations? If anything our lessened influence is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Pauly D: Yo, I think I heard Deena self-fulfilling last night [Laughs]
Deena Nicole Cortese: Mike, what do you think? Hasn't Jersey been a reliable blue state in electoral politics? So it influences voters as media at the federal level?
The Situation: A keen observation, Deena. But, keep in mind there's still local candidates and valid initiatives that demand consideration.
Jwoww: Where'd you guys learn all of this [Beep]?
The Situation: It's called being informed, Jenny.
JWoww: No, Mike. I mean where did you learn this [Beep]? Because you're oversimplifying an issue that's as much about the entrenched power structure in Washington as it is about individual voter detachment!
Ronnie Ortiz Magro: Totally! It's G T L time up in here!
Sammi Giancola: You just G T L'd yesterday!
Pauly D: No, no no. He means G T L as in game theory logic. And he has a point. From a game theory standpoint, as advanced by Oscar Morgenstern, what incentives does his opposition have to compromise?
Vinny Guadagnino: Hey Ron, can I talk to you for a second?
Vinny Guadagnino: Are you seriously buying Pauly's antiquated game theory rubbish!?
Ronnie Ortiz Magro: I think he makes a fair point. Of course young voters are apathetic. Turnout will always be depressed among the younger demographic without a viable third party.
Vinny Guadagnino: REALLY!? Are YOU seriously regurgitating those tired talking points in favor of a third party? In a plurality rule electoral structure there's a natural tendency for a two-party system. That's Duverger's Law!
Ronnie Ortiz Magro: Don't you try to school me on Duverger! I wrote the book on Duverger!
Deena Nicole Cortese: Hey, meatball! I was using that for my freaking nails!
Ronnie Ortiz Magro: A pillow!?
Deena Nicole Cortese: Yeah! Suck my dick!
Snooki: Everyone shut up!
Snooki: Look. I got a frickin' baby in me and I don't want him getting all agitated. A shore has divided against the south cannot stand.
JWoww: She's right. I think that's one thing that we can all agree on. It's important that we use our power for the two thousand and twelve election.
The Situation: It's true. With forty-five million young people eligible to vote in November, we can decide this election.
