Episode Quotes
Chris: Stop hitting me.
Nathan: Stop kissing my wife.
Chris: I will when you start kissing her.

Chris: Oh. (plays his guitar) All right. Not bad.
Nathan: Are you serious. My cell phone is shot. We're in a middle of nowhere and you check your guitar? How about a thank you for not letting you drown?
Chris: Whoa. Chris Keller was dog-paddling just fine.
Nathan: Chris Keller was sinking just fine.

Brooke: Clothes over bros?
Haley: Clothes over bros.

Nathan: I thought you said lost all the money.
Chris: Oh I did. This is the money your dad paid me last week to seduce Haley.

Nathan: Haley, stay with me tonight.
Haley: Oh, I was hoping you would say that.

Brooke: There are 82 letters in here and they're all addressed to you. I wrote them all this summer, one a day, but I never sent them because I was afraid.
Lucas: Brooke.
Brooke: I was afraid of getting my heart broken again, like before because you hurt me so bad and I was afraid to be vulnerable and I was afraid of you and the way you make me feel. I know that it doesn't matter now after what I did, but I just thought you should know. This is how I spent my summer, Luke, wanting you. I was just too scared to admit it.

Lucas: Brooke! I'm sorry. What you did with Chris, it's okay.
Brooke: It's not. It can't be. It's too much to forgive.
Lucas: Well, that's too bad because I forgive you.
Brooke: You can't.
Lucas: I just did, so you're just going to have to deal with it. I'm the guy for you, Brooke Davis, and I know I hurt you last time we were together.
Brooke: I love you.
Lucas: I love you, too, pretty girl.

Haley: I cant believe I got arrested for a wearing a stupid tank top.
Brooke: I told you, you should have done your laundry.
Haley: I got arrested for wearing one of your stupid tank tops that you stole.

Nathan: Hey, where you going?
Chris: Chris Keller's work here is done.

Episode Goofs
When Haley turns to leave Nathan's bedroom, the door is open, but when the shot goes back to Haley, the door is closed.

Cultural References
Episode Title: How a Resurrection Really Feels

"How a Resurrection Really Feels" is the title of a The Hold Steady song.

Episode References
Lucas: I didn't sleep with Peyton.
Brooke: But you slept with Nikki.

In "The First Cut is the Deepest" Lucas meets Nikki at a bar and ends up having sex with her, not knowing who she was, at the mall.

Chris: (to Nathan) I kissed Haley ... at the Masquerade Party.

In "An Attempt to Tip The Scales", Chris dresses up in the same costume for the Masquerade Party as Nathan and kisses Haley who thinks she's kissing Nathan.

Peyton's sub-conscience

Peyton's sub-conscience is a reference to "An Attempt to Tip The Scales" where Peyton dresses up as a dark angel for her masquerade costume.

The "resurrection" in the episode title refers to both the resurrection of Lucas and Brooke's relationship, following her one-night stand with Chris Keller, and the resurrection of Nathan and Haley's relationship following their separation. In a way, Chris Keller also experiences a resurrection when he is able to correct the damage he did in both Lucas and Brooke's and Nathan and Haley's relationship.

Near the end of the episode when Nathan asks Haley to say with him, the scene parallels a scene in "With Arms Outstretched" when Nathan asks Haley if he can stay with her after he collapses on the court. In both cases, Nathan is going through a tough time with his father, but finds that Haley is someone that can help him through the hard times that Dan puts him through.
