Suggested correction: I think she meant that Eddie has never maintained a stable job for a long time - a career.

This seems like a guess without watching the scene. She says specifically "Eddie doesn't work...As long as I've known him, he's never had a single job." Hardly a line to say if she meant he's never had a career or long term job.

I actually did watch the scene before I submitted my correction. However, I will agree with you that my guess is weak. It's just how I interpreted what Claudia says.

Take It to the Limit - S2-E13

Question: I don't understand Lily's nervousness about impressing Dean in this episode - almost as if they have never been on a date. She already referred to him as her "boyfriend" in "Smoke on the Daughter", and they arranged a date in that episode. And he has been in her bedroom and brought her a Christmas present ("I Saw Daddy Hitting Santa Claus"). Why does this episode suddenly make it seem like they have never been on a date?

Answer: "Take It to the Limit", while aired as the 13th episode, was the 7th episode produced for the 2nd season (production code 207). "Smoke on the Daughter" was the 8th episode (208) and "I Saw Daddy Hitting Santa Clause" was the 10th episode (210) produced. Often shows air episodes out of production order for various reasons. If they had aired 210 in order, it would have aired on Jan 23rd instead of Dec 19th, hardly a good time to air a Christmas themed episode.
