Lydia asks this almost every time Beetlejuice is working on a get-rich quick scheme, if not acting weird even for him. Though a liar who tends to deny it, BJ is virtually always up to something or in some kind of trouble, and relise on Lydia to help him out with both.

Season #0 (Movies)
Film "Job" Scam Trouble Escape
Beetle Juice

1.Juno's Office Assistant

2.Free-lance Bio-Exorcist

1. Unknown, but it's most likely a get-rich-quick scam to be working for the main Counciling/Census Building of the Neitherworld.

2. This was all an act of trickery to get someone to say his name 3 times, plus he'd get paid for having his fun with the live people "Haunting" the houses of the few ghosts that live in the Outerworld (haunted houses are hard to come by these days... in fact, there's a rumored shortage!) He was released by the receantly-deceased Adam & Barbara Maitland as he could tell their own haunting skills would be pathetic ("Cute couple... look nice and stupid too!")

1.Unknown, but whatever he's done must've gave reason for Juno to be one of the first to know he doesn't work well with others

2.Although they released him, the Maitland's were not interested via his lousy social skills while talking business (good thing for him they left by saying "home" 3 times instead of his name, but they figure it out when he tries to outdo those "spooksters" in the form of a snake). After taking a break in a Whorehouse Juno made to keep him busy, he changes his escape strategy by trying to form a bond with Lydia, who seems the type to understand him, by introducing himself with chirades, but the Maitlands forbid her to say his name. When the Maitlands were unintentionally put to near-exorsism (death to the dead), Lydia makes a deal with BJ: he saves the Maitland's afterlives, but in return Lydia must be his wife (appearently, marriage plays a key role to braking his curse comepletely), but as he rushed Lydia into her half of the bargain... she's a child for corpse sakes!... the Maitland's interviened the union with a model-car hot-foot, followed by having him fed to a sandworm!

1.Once again, unknown, but this was most likely his first visit to the Outerworld (clearly he's a different species of ghost then the Deceased), where he somehow blew his cover as one of the undead by claiming he could "get rid of the living", then got into more trouble for it (the main clue was the resulting curse: the only way he can re-enter the lands of the living is if someone calls him by name 3 times, plus he can be sent back the same way)!

2. Unknown, but judging by how shredded-up his marriage tuxedo is, it took alot more then indigestion to escape the belly of that sandworm. Odds are, he was in the waiting room of the Counciling building as refuge, as his impatience to get out wasn't desplayed so obnoxiously as when he tried to get someone to call him out. You might say he finally saw a "shrink" when he angered a witch doctor by switching numbers with the old man.

Babysitter literally sits on babies (and lets them do whatever they want) BJ asks for Lydia's help because the babies were crying and he doesn't know what to do (she notices they are hungry, plus BJ shouldn't liturally "sit" on them), plus his feeling "like a kid again" causes him to cause child-like chaos over the Neitherworld with the babies, and only "grows up" in time to end up arrested and sentanced to be thrown to the sandworms. Lydia confesses (as a Neitherworld Lawyer) that BJ is her "Best Friend", and sees the good in him, thus spends time with him on purpose. Using a pep-talk to get BJ to stand up to a sandworm that was about to eat Little Arlo (the Outerworld youth that Lydia herself was babysitting), she convinced Judge Mental that the ghost was noble enough for another chance.
