You could've included Robert Vaughn too (as Jim Darling) being Laura's former boyfriend.

Well as soon as the correct answer popped up on the ones I missed I thought, ‘Oh, yeah! I see it now!’ Too little, too late though. 4/11 😕

Okay, I admit it, I'm a sitcom reruns junkie, and that's probably the biggest reason I got 11 of 11.

You got 11 out of 11 - Way to put on a good show! Though there were others, I was hoping they would have had Don Diamond, Crazy Cat from F-Troop but it was the same episode as Bernie Kopell.

Besides the "toe in the faucet" episode, Bernard Fox also played a night-school writing teacher who made a pass at Laura (Rob first thought it was an attempt to get him, a professional writer for TV, to look at his work for nothing).

Other stars of later sitcoms also made multiple appearances as different characters. Alvy Moore, who played Hank Kimball on Green Acres, was both the IRS agent who audited Buddy's tax return, and the shifty salesman who sold Laura four defective pillows.

Bernard Fox also played Pricilla's father, she kept beating up Ritchie, but kept saying how much she loved Ritchie.
