* NonIndicativeTitle: There are no actual beatniks in ''The Beatniks''. The writers seem to be either be under the impression that "beatnik" means something along the lines of "delinquent" or "hoodlum", or that the name comes from beat - as in ''music'' - niks, or possibly a bit of both.

Off to downtown L.A. where Eddy meets Helen, Bayliss' secretary, setting up the inevitable LoveTriangle. As Helen begins grooming the rather rough (or so we're told) Eddy into a straight-laced star, he begins to see the futility of his Beatnik (to clarify; [[Non-Indicative Name no, not]] ''[[Non-Indicative Name that]]'' [[Non-Indicative Name kind of]] {{Beatnik}}) ways. His {{Poisonous Friend}}s, on the other hand, are bound and determined not to let him leave them behind in his rise to the top, and continue to create mischief and mayhem -- which culminates when AxCrazy Mooney shoots a barkeeper dead during an altercation, thus jeopardizing not only Eddy's career, but his entire future.

* PoisonousFriend: Once again, Peter Breck as Mooney. He avoids being TheStarscream solely because he doesn't want to be a leader: "Leaders got too much on their ''minds'', man...I only got time for one thing --" [incomprehensible hand gesture; EvilLaugh]]
