But Bud also needs the house for himself: his pen pal Starla is getting out of prison and is coming to see him. Unfortunately, Starla decides to rob the Bundy's at gunpoint. It turns out that she has escaped and is on the run, so she ends up holding the Bundys hostage. Starla also has a dim-witted boyfriend, to whom Kelly becomes attracted to. And the feeling is mutual.
