While returning home from getting bubblegum ice cream, 23-year-old Jimmy Chance saves Lucy from her boyfriend, and has a one-night-stand with her. The next morning Jimmy and his parents, Virginia and Burt discover from a news report that Jimmy's one night stand is actually a serial killer who murdered her boyfriends, and in response Virginia knocks her out with a television. Eight months later, Jimmy finds out that she is pregnant with his child, and after she is sentenced to death, Jimmy takes the baby and wants to raise her himself. Burt and Virginia initially try to convince Jimmy to give the baby up, but eventually they help out, renaming the baby from "Princess Beyonce" to Hope.
