Earl Keese: I thought I'd be able to defend myself.
Enid Keese: Not so loud, Earl.
Earl Keese: What's the matter? Afraid we're gonna disturb the neighbors? These ARE the goddamn neighbors.
Vic: Calm yourself, Earl. I'm not gonna take you to court. That'd make for bad blood. We don't want any bad blood, especially since we'll be living next door to you for a long, long time.

Vic: Believe me, I know women - upside down and backwards, which is not a bad way to know 'em, huh?

Vic: We haven't any children, unless Ramona just pumped one out and didn't tell me about it.

Vic: Stay here on the outer limits of the dead end zone? Nothing personal, but life at the end of the road just ain't for Captain Vic and Empress Ramona. Sorry folks, but you can color us gone.

Ramona: I was real friendly with a boy named Earl once - well, twice really.

Vic: Ramona and I haven't eaten all day. We could eat a baby's butt through a park bench.

Ramona: Now, I'm just going to go under the covers and take a little inventory. Promise you won't go away.
Earl Keese: You're really wonderful.
Ramona: That's what I've been trying to tell you. Is it so hard having your fantasies come to life?

Vic: In light of Earl's feelings, I think it would be best if we left.
Enid Keese: Oh, no, no. Sit down, sit down. Let's finish this magnificent meal. Don't worry about Earl. He'll get over his feelings.
Vic: He spurned my sauce.
Enid Keese: No, he loves your sauce. He's just jealous, he can't cook.

Vic: You touched my brick?

Enid Keese: Vic, what did you say is in a pile driver?
Vic: Italian Galliano for passion, Irish Mist for love and Russian vodka for endurance.

Earl Keese: This is crazy... but there's something so right about it.

Vic: We're waiting, or do I have to pound it out of you?
Earl Keese: Don't ever speak to me like that in my own house.
Vic: Why would I?
Earl Keese: You just did.
Vic: I didn't mean anything - it's just something a guy says.
Earl Keese: I never say it.
Vic: I don't blame you.

Ramona: You should have slipped it through the mail slot while you had the chance, Earl.

Visible crew/equipment: When the families are eating dinner, Ramona says that John Belushi tried to pork her. When she says that line a boom mic appears in shot, above her head. Also, when Vic is talking about where he got the food, the boom pole is visible at the top right of the screen.

Trivia: The 1980 novel "Neighbors" by Thomas Berger (upon which this comic film is based) was actually a much darker and more serious psychological story about a reserved, unexceptional suburbanite going to war with his younger, less-inhibited new neighbors. In fact, the novel's lead character, Earl Keese (played by John Belushi in the movie), actually dies at the end of the book. The film adaptation attempted a lighthearted, almost slapstick approach to the story, allowing Earl Keese to survive and run away with his zany neighbors to pursue a happier life. Ironically, the movie's production was so chaotic (with temperamental conflicts and rampant drug use among the cast and crew) that John Belushi relapsed into heavy addiction and died of an overdose of cocaine and heroin less than four months after the film was released.
