Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives! (1989) (part 6 of 12)
Just so we don’t forget the evil record company guys—who, let’s face it, are having less and less impact on the plot every time we see them—we now go to Satin Records Headquarters. Reporters are swarming around Dennis Miller Guy and Mafia Used Car Salesman as they stroll through the lobby, dropping hints about Eddie having been seen in twelve states—and Paris, France! A nebbish reporter demands to know how long they’re going to keep up this “scam”, which gets him angrily pushed out of the elevator (but alas, not down the shaft). Once they’re alone, Dennis Miller asks Mafia Used Car Guy the same question. The response? “As long as we’ve got records to sell!” Bwhahaha!
And now it’s time for the gallery opening. Eddie saunters in wearing jeans and a leather jacket, earning him reproachful looks from the cream of Montreal society. Ha ha, the juxtaposition of the working class and the well-to-do is so funny! And the best part is, it’s never been done before!
