Lionel: Even if you sell all your stock and drain your trust fund,
you still come up short, Lex. What are you going to do about the rest of the money, hmm?

Lex: Take the buyout now and you can keep
your dignity. That's more than you left me.He didn't even leave his dignity?
Yes. I don't know what has transpired between them but whatever it was, Lex feels that Lionel took his (Lex's) dignity.
Thanks, D!
Lionel took away the plant he closed from Lex.Emotion: big smile
