Trivia

The title is based on the biblical parable of the prodigal son from the 15th Chapter of Luke. "Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet; and bring the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and make merry; for this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found."

Quotes

JR Ewing: [after Mitch walked out on Lucy] Lost another one, did you, sugar? Hell, I got to hand it to you, you sure can pick them. A pansy, a crook, and an up-and-coming pauper. You are a veritable magnet for losers and failures.
Lucy Ewing Cooper: At least I can't do any worse than Sue Ellen, can I?
