Rodney: Did you ever hear of Ozone Heights?
Venus: No, what are they?
Rodney: It's a great big new real estate development over on Staten Island. Every bungalow's the same. They got an electric incinerator and a radio that looks like a fireplace—
Venus: And a fireplace that looks like a radio?
Rodney: Yes. And when you sign the lease, you get a year's subscription to the Reader's Digest! And I almost forgot the most important thing of all—a dandy big yard for the kiddies when they start to come along.
One Touch of Venus

Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes all the same.
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.
Malvina Reynolds

Around the block just one more time
We're rocking the suburbs
Cause I can't tell which house is mine
We're rocking the suburbs
We part the shades and face facts
They got better looking Fescue
Right across the cul de sac
— Ben Folds Rockin' the Suburbs

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order, an insulated border
In between the bright lights and the far unlit unknown
