Jersey Shore returns to MTV on July 29 at 10pm, but the network has released a sneak peek of the season 2 premiere, and fans should be happy to know that Snooki, the Situation, Pauly D and the rest of the guido gang are still their same-old selves, despite their growing fame.

I am ecstatic to announce than I, Meghan Carlson–better known for recapping the benign likes of The Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars–will recap Jersey Shore this season, and if this preview is any indication, I will have plenty of material to work with. Keep checking back for more updates leading up to the premiere, and join me on July 29 when everyone’s favorite guilty pleasure, Jersey Shore, returns. Virtual fist-pump!

Watch the video below, and check out my favorite quotes from this brief little teaser:

Pauly D is still creepin’: “I think the beaches are topless, so we’re going to spend a lot of time at the beach.”

Snooki is no longer “snookin’ for love”: “I found an amazing gorilla juice-head.”

But that doesn’t mean she won’t still be Snooki in Miami: “I don’t want to cheat. But if you’re going to hand me a bottle of frickin’ SoCo, something just comes over me. I just go crazy.”

Snooki has also recently become political. For personal reasons: “Obama put a ten-percent tax on tanning, and I feel like he did that intentionally for us. McCain would never put a ten-percent tax on tanning. Because he’s pale and he’d probably want to be tan.”

J-Woww’s got her packing priorities straight: “What’s in here?” — Snooki tries to lift Jenny’s heavy bag. “F***ing bronzer.” — Jenny

Vinny’s family just wants the best for him: “My uncles want me to come here and bang everything. But I kind of want better quality girls.”

And Angelina? She’s ba-aaaaack: “I get a chance to show everybody the real Angelina. Not just like, the bitchy side.” (There’s another side?)

Lastly, does it even matter what context Snooki said this in?: “Obviously, he, like, f***s his sister for a living.”

It’s gonna be a good summer.
