In honor of the reality show's grand finale, airing at 10 p.m. on Thursday, PEOPLE caught up with the cast and got some behind-the-scenes scoop from the final days of filming.
Here are five things we know you won't be seeing in the finale that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, 31, calls, "humorous with a little irony":

If I were on a desert island with Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, I would swim away into shark-infested waters. But Snooki? I would ignore passing ships. Maybe she would ask why the ocean has so much water. What an adorably dumb question! Maybe she would compare herself to that Gilligan Crusoe dude. I would smile indulgently and spear a fish for her supper. All Snooki moments are magical.
Snooki is the star, along with Jersey Shore colleague JWOWW, of the unimaginatively titled side project Snooki & JWOWW, premiering Thursday (10 p.m. ET) on MTV. Filmed during her current pregnancy and engagement to Jionni LaValle, the show allows Snooki to say of her unexpected journey to motherhood: "Instead of life throwing me a curve ball, it threw me a sperm ball."

Looking for a new home is serious business – but not if you're Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWOWW" Farley.
With their foul mouths and lack of boundaries, they can make just about anything – including parallel parking – seem entertaining. Or at least that's what they do in these clips from Snooki & JWOWW, which premieres Thursday (10 p.m. ET) on MTV.
While waiting on a realtor to meet them and show them around a potential new apartment, the roommates-to-be quickly realize that Snooki's going to have to parallel park her "ridiculously ghetto truck" on the side of the road. Problem is: Snooki doesn't really know how – so the scene quickly devolves into JWOWW manually pushing Snooki's truck out of the way of the other cars while Snooki drives. (Watch above.)
