Snooki on cutting back on her drinking:

Ellen: “You cut back on the drinking you said. Like how much? What does that mean?”
Snooki: “Yeah, when I was 21 and I didn’t really care, I would go out like every single weekend and just go crazy. Now that I have a boyfriend and I’m in love and I’m 24. I only have a couple of glasses of wine once a week.”
Ellen: “A couple of glasses of wine once a week?”
Snooki: “I drink like two Pinots once a week and I’m good.”
Ellen: “That’s it. You’ve gone from what you were doing before to having two glasses of wine once a week?”
Snooki: “Yes, because I’m 24 now. So it’s kind of like, I’ve matured. I still know how to throw down a couple of shots… I prefer to take it easy.”
Ellen: “Well, because you’re 24. You’re mature now.”

Snooki on her relationship with Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino:

Ellen: “Now you and ‘The Situation’ are not getting along right now, right Snooki?”
Snooki: “Well, you see in it Italy, he makes up rumors. He hasn’t really done it to me before so the fact that he did it to me and yeah know, we’re like really good friends. I was kind of hurt by it and disappointed.”
J-Woww: “I could of told you season 1…”
Snooki: “Yeah, well he never did it to me so I didn’t know. So in this season you’re going to see how our relationship actually ends up.”
Ellen: “So you won’t tell us. We have to watch.”
Snooki: “You can pretty much tell from my face.”
Ellen: “The way you’re acting right now?”
Snooki: “Yeah.”
Ellen: “So you’re not getting along?”
Snooki: “Ugh.”
