Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has spent much of the last two "Jersey Shore" seasons isolated from his housemates and squabbling with Snooki over an off-screen hookup that she swears never happened. But on Thursday night's episode, The Situation finally finds a friend -- and possibly more -- in Paula, his long-time booty call. In this exclusive preview clip, they spend some quality, non-Karma time together, and the Situation actually thinks about settling down.

As they stand on the roof the house gazing out at the waves, Mike delivers his version of a romantic line. "So, three years in the making and we finally have a little date." Paula laughs and responds, "I don't know what that says, but ... "

It seems like they may be on the verge of an actual relationship. In a voiceover, Mike says, "I guess you'd have to say Paula is my main squeeze right now. She's definitely very, very cute, very, very sexy body, cool personality. I can't think of anything wrong, it's almost too good to be true." Later, she tells him, "You know how to make me feel like the only girl in a room with a million girls in it."

But lest anyone forget this is "Jersey Shore," after the rooftop romance, they retire to the bedroom for a smushin' session.

"Jersey Shore" airs Thursday nights at 10 p.m. EST on MTV.
