** Lily's dream career is PlayedWith. She's a kindergarten teacher and fairly satisfied with her job. However, she would love to become a professional artist. Her work is quite nice, but only on amateur level. She goes to have professional classes in a selective art program and later tries selling some paintings, with mixed success. One episode was based on her trying to figure out what she would love to do with her career, and finally, she says she did figure it out: she starts her old-new job as a kindergarten teacher. However in Season 8, the Captain (Zoey's ex-husband) calls her out for wasting her art career. But later, he offers her a job as his art consultant which Lily eventually took it.
