Lately the Jersey girls have been somewhat unpredictable. One moment their behavior is fairly normal and we can almost relate to their personal issues. And then there are moments like we saw Sunday night — in which Jacqueline Laurita has a screaming match with Teresa Giudice via speaker phone in the middle of a boutique. The employees and clientele look understandably mortified.

Although it's hard to predict whether the ladies are going to be down-to-earth or out-of-control, one thing is consistent: This cast has a vocabulary all its own. 

Below is a list of Jerseyisms heard on Season 5 thus far. The show can be quite animated, even without table flipping. 

Rosie believes the family retreat Teresa Giudice is setting up is located somewhere near the "Adoron-dike" Mountains. 

Teresa Giudice wants to take her family on retreat, where they will participate in "trusting games." 

Jen the realtor: "Kim got it out for you, girl."

Melissa Gorga is "animate" about being a good wife. 

Teresa Giudice: "He [Joe Gorga] acts like he doesn't know nothing about Twitter."

Joe Gorga: "Go cook a book."

Teresa Giudice: "I'm not one of Melissa's favorite persons." 

Next week the team is going on a retreat to work out its problems. We can only imagine what's in store for the Jersey dictionary.
