Starla was a girl Hurley had a crush on. She was the assistant at a music store Hurley frequently visited, and accepted an invitation to go on a date with him before Hurley revealed his lottery win to anyone.

After quitting their jobs at Mr. Cluck's Chicken Shack, Hurley and his friend Johnny visited the music store where Starla works. Using the excuse of going to check out the headphones, Hurley greeted the salesgirl behind her counter.

Starla asked him why he wasn't at work and he replied that he had just dumped his job. She was surprised by this and continued to tell him, "You're messing with my worldview here, Hugo. You're my rock. I mean if you quit your job the next thing you know bees will stop making honey, and flowers will die, and hell, the whole damn thing will fall apart."

Hurley then took the opportunity to invite Starla to The Hold Steady concert that weekend, to which she accepted, stating that Saturday was the most convenient time for her since she works on weekdays.

As they went to leave the record store, Johnny told Hurley that he had been crushing on Starla for months and done nothing, but today he was "fricking Fabio." He asked Hurley what had gotten into him and Hurley responded that he just wanted to ask her out before... he cut off his sentence. He did not want to reveal to anyone yet about his winning the lottery. ("Everybody Hates Hugo")

Starla eventually goes out with Hurley (enough times for him to later refer to her as his "girlfriend"), but ultimately runs off with Johnny. Although this did not occur on screen, Hurley claims it happened.("Tricia Tanaka Is Dead")


  • Starla is the name of a Smashing Pumpkins song from the 1994 album, Pisces Iscariot.
  • The name Starla comes from the English word "star", though it is said to be related to the Persian name Esther, which means "myrtle leaf".
