Sexting, physical fights, Ke$ha references... This episode was a real grab bag of strange happenings. So let's look back at some of the most memorable moments.

No. 3 - Fly Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Wakile

Evidently Victoria and Joseph aren't the only black belts in the Wakile family -- Richie's got some moves as well. Now to take it back a bit, Joe Giudice and Rich have always had a ball-busting relationship, as we saw last season. That's just how Jersey guys bro out.

But the ball busting got a little too literal during poker night. (Side note: Did any one ever even get to play any poker that evening? My guess is no.) Of course somehow the competitiveness about height came into play, and Rich and Joe Giudice decided to compare back-to-back. (Really, guys, let the height thing go. None of you are getting drafted into the NBA, give it a rest.) Then for whatever reason Joe decides that he's going to grab Rich's balls. Because... Yeah, I have no idea. So as Joe attempts to grab the Wakile family jewels, Rich flips him over and Joe hits his eye on a candelabra in the process.

Cut to all the men recounting the tale of the tussle to their wives as if this is a completely normal occurrence. Watching the girls try and grasp why and how this debacle occurred was maybe the best part of the whole incident.
