Randy Quaid, Evi Quaid

When  Cousin Eddie's up to no good, that's pure comedy. When it's really Randy Quaid in trouble, that's plain sad.

The Vacation star and wife Evi remain behind bars in a Texas jail this morning after being collared over the weekend on an outstanding warrant for their bizzaro California resort-and-dash case.

Randy was collared at his home in Marfa on Sunday, a day after Evi was hauled in.  (Local police blame a clerical error for failing to grab Randy at the same time as his wife.)

They will remain in the Hudspeth County lockup until they each post $40,000 bail. But that still won't be the end of their woes—they still need to answer to charges of skipping out on a $10,000 hotel bill in Santa Barbara...if they ever make it to the Golden State.

"It's exactly the same thing in November," Santa Barbara District Attorney Lee Carter tells E! News.

They posted bail in their Texas felony fugitive case so they were allowed out of custody in Texas. But that doesn't take care of California warrant...The only thing that takes case of California is if they come here and post a bond or appear here. They have to take care of the bond and get a date of appearance."

Lee says the judge doubled their bond to $40,000 apiece to incentivize the dynamic duo to make the trek to California, but if the couple doesn't show up to take care of that amount, then he'll issue a bigger warrant.

"I asked him to make [their bonds] $100,000 each because I don't see them coming," says Carter.

The Quaids racked up a five-figure tab at the posh San Ysidro Ranch, but soon after arriving, their credit card was declined. However, they were allowed to continue with their stay after telling management they had a replacement card on the way. That card never came, and the couple took off a week later without paying.
