    • Jake: What are you doing here?
      Christian: Slaughter the fattest cow, the prodigal son has returned.

      The parable of the prodigal son is told in the Bible, in the New Testament, Luke 15: 11 - 32. The prodigal son, the younger of two brothers, left home and squandered his birthright. He returned home, destitute, and was welcomed with open arms by his father, who celebrated by slaughtering the fatted calf. The elder son was resentful, but was chastised by his father who told him that his brother, who was dead, was now alive again.
