How to get over it

Tigh: (to Bulldog) You don't wanna believe it, do you? I know. The truth hurts, Bulldog, but it's better to know the truth than to live a lie. . . . Tell you a dirty little secret. The toughest part of getting played is losing your dignity. Feeling like you are not worth the oxygen you are sucking down. You get used to it. You start to believe it. You start to love it. It's like a bottle that never runs dry. You can keep reaching for it over and over and over again.

Adama: So how do you put that bottle away, Saul?

Tigh: I don't know. One day you just decide to get up and walk out of your room.
