* PostScriptSeason: Season 8 is over. Dan quits his job and loses the Phil Foundation fortune. More importantly, Harry and Christine have professed their love to one another. OK, that's the end. What's that? We've been renewed? Oh, crap! ''Series/ThirtyRock'' devoted [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_One_with_the_Cast_of_Night_Court an episode]] to the idea that several of the characters on that show were unhappy with the Season 9 ending to ''Night Court'', so they staged a "fake" episode, reuniting several of the actual cast members (Harry Anderson, Markie Post, and Charles Robinson), and they had Harry and Christine get married.

** Averted with Harry Stone played by Harry Anderson, oddly enough. According to series creator and executive producer Reinhold Weege's DVD commentary, the character was called Harry and was a devoted Tormé fan and magician before magician turned actor Harry Anderson auditioned.

** Larroquette also showed off in two episodes. Once, his ability as a MotorMouth of a [[RattlingOffLegal description of the charges against a defendant]] in the episode "A Day In The Life" and his skill as an accordionist on Part 1 of the episode "A Guy Named Phantom", that was a homage to "The Phantom of the Opera". In "Not My Type", Christine attempts to entertain the crowd on her date with Art with a performance of Bach's Two-Part Invention in D Major, and the angle of the shot reveals that Markie Post actually is playing the piano and not miming.

Added DiffLines:

** The king of this (on Night Court, at least) has to be actor Jack Riley, who played five roles over the course of the series, including a murderous clown, a gay dog breeder interested in Dan, and the doctor in charge of Dan's surgery.
** Running a close second is Timothy Stack, who played three separate, prominent characters over the course of the series.
*** In "The Modest Proposal", he played Bill - Christine's humorless fiancee. He winds up dumping her at the altar as he suddenly "gets" every single punchline to every joke he was ever told.
*** In the two-parter "Snoop and Nuts", he plays Tim Bond - an incompetent federal agent working with Harry to bring down a crime boss.
*** In the two-parter "Wedding Bell Blues", he plays Mr. Marley - a pencil-pusher who takes over running maintenance for the court house after the staff go on strike.
** Stuart Pankin has also played three separate characters in the series, including a podiatrist who has to deliver Mac and Quon Le's baby, and a rock star's greedy business manager.
** Lana Clarkson, of ''Film/BarbarianQueen'' fame, also played two roles on the show.
*** In "Hello, Goodbye", she played a bailiff trainee.
*** In "My Three Dads", she played Dan's stewardess date in a dream sequence.
** Creator/GregoryItzin (Charles Logan from Series/TwentyFour) played a mobster's defense lawyer in one episode, and a mugger in another two-parter.
** In a lesser example, before their recurring roles on the show as Phil and Buddy, Will Utay and John Astin each appeared as unrelated characters in season two episodes; Utay played a defendant who beat up a mime and stole his change "for kicks" in "Pick a Number" and Astin played a CloudCuckoolander hospital patient (albeit similar to his later role) named Kenny in "Inside Harry Stone".
** The late Phil Leeds, an elderly actor known for his odd appearance, made several appearances on the show, including as a man who [[AGodAmI believed he was God]] and one of the aliens that meets with Bull in the GrandFinale.
