- Paul: It's amazing what you can do with a cheap piece of meat if you know how to treat it.
[Discussing cheap wine] Customer: Really? Stomach cramps? But it's such a good buy. Paul: Well, so is lighter fluid at three ninety-five a pint but I wouldn't serve it to my dinner guests.
Paul: A hundred-and-seventy-five-dollar-a-month rent increase! How are we going to pay that? Mary: Don't worry. We can live on your insta-cash card for a month or so. Paul: Don't you remember? It was canceled for non-payment.
Paul: Mary, I just killed a man. Mary: He was a man. Now he's just a bag of garbage.
Mary: At the store, can you buy a new frying pan? I'm a little squeamish about using the one we use to kill people.
- Working independently, Bartel scraped together financing from family and friends and shot the film in piecemeal fashion when he could afford it.
The film's tagline is a parody of the tagline for Bonnie and Clyde (1967), "They're young, they're in love... and they kill people."
Years after the film became a cult favorite, a sequel was scripted, in which a man blackmailed the Blands with knowledge of their killings. Chevy Chase was slated to play this man, and Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov would reprise their roles from the original, but Bartel died before it could get started.
