Not to be discouraged, the nerds decide to [[StartMyOwn start their own frat]], and through an oversight are given permission to set up a branch of the normally all-black fraternity Lambda Lambda Lambda. But all is not well; the existing frats, not to mention the resident jocks, don't appreciate nerds horning in on their territory, and so begins a war of attrition that involves vandalism, nude photos, the liberal application of 'liquid heat' to jockstraps, and various other [[HijinksEnsue wacky hijinks]].

* CaptainErsatz: Snotty in the second film is a pretty obvious parody of [[TheKarateKid Mr. Miyagi]].

* ThePeepingTom: The Lambdas in ''RevengeOfTheNerds'' take this trope to an extreme by installing surveillance cameras in all the bedrooms and showers of the sorority house. They literally stay awake all night, just watching women sleep.

'''''Revenge of the Nerds''''' (1984) is a classic [[TheEighties '80s]] teen sex comedy, one of the rarer breed that takes place in college instead of HighSchool. After the football team accidentally burns down their shared house in an ill-conceived '[[BoozeFlameThrower fire breathing]]' stunt, they commandeer the freshman dorms as their own. The Freshmen are allowed to pledge fraternities earlier than usual so they'll have a place to live, but your typical frats' well-known aversion to scholarly types leaves the nine nerdiest new students out in the cold.

** Gilbert's decline in screen time in each movie can be attributed to Anthony Edward's becoming a bigger star in magnitude. By the time ''Nerds In Love'' comes around, Edwards is starring in a major role on ''Series/{{ER}}''.
