Synopsis for Maniaks: "A Crooks' Tour of Palisades Park" or "How to Cook a Goose"
The Maniaks perform a concert at the Palisades Amusement Park. As they exit the stage, they find a mob of fans waiting for them. The gang quickly tricks the adoring fans into thinking the Beatles have just arrived and make their escape by hiding in the park.
Elsewhere, the Eggs Benedict Gang make plans to meet with rival gang leader "Dutch" Edam. After concealing machine guns inside musical instrument cases, the Eggs Benedict Gang leaves for the meet. The meeting is shortlived, however, as Dutch and his boys are quickly rubbed out by Benedict's men. Unfortunately for the Maniaks, they decided to hide out in the same building and witnessed the event.
The gangsters realize they have witnesses and turn their attention to the teens. A chase through the amusement park eventually leads to the heroes being captured. The gang plans to make the Maniaks cement shoes and dump them in the ocean. Silver decides singing a song might make the captors relent. Her song moves the gang's leader but not enough to secure their release. The band is then taken to the pier where they are to be dumped into the ocean. Jangle uses his ventriloquism to imitate police sirens and allows the Maniaks a moment to act. Flip and Pack Rat combine their skills to escape their cement shoes. Now free, the group works together to overpower the gang until the police arrive.
