Matthew 22:34-40

34Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together.

35One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" 37Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'

40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

Matthew 25:40
40"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

Like a Good Neighbor

“Like a Good Neighbor,” an Adventures in Odyssey Club exclusive, is episode #745 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Nathan Hoobler, and was originally released on July 1, 2014.


Red Hollard's tools go missing and Eugene's basement is flooded when he comes home. Meanwhile, Olivia Parker discovers how to be a good neighbor.

  • The title of this episode is possibly a reference to the State Farm Insurance slogan "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there."
  • Detective Polehaus says that Red Hollard left his door open as though he lived in Mayberry, a reference to The Andy Griffith Show.
  • Detective Polehaus's observation that good neighbors are made by "big locks and tall fences" was first made by poet Robert Frost in his poem "Mending Wall".
  • Wally Haggler references "that slug thing on Star Wars" (Jabba the Hutt).
See main article List of Star Wars references
  • Wally Haggler refers to fairy tale character Rumpelstilskin.
  • Wooton's line "So the cops copped the copper crooks and cracked the caper" is probably a reference to the Jack Webb / Johnny Carson "Copper Clappers" bit.



Mrs. Kramer: Kids should not be seen or heard if you ask me.

Wooton Bassett: Sometimes my tongue moves before my brain wakes up.
