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.

10/11; missed #11 - I did not recognize Garry Marshall and was not aware that he did any acting.
