It seems that many actors, including Harold Gould, were in episodes of the sitcom Soap which was also created by Susan Harris. Harold Gould played Jody's roommate in the hospital, Richard Mulligan (Burt Campbell, Harry Weston), in episode 24, Gordon Jump (who played Officer Tinkler) and Peggy Pope (who played Carol's mother, Mrs. David) also starred on both. Don't forget Donnelly Rhodes who guest stars as one of Blanche's beau's in the second season of The Golden Girls. Rhodes starred as Dutch in Soap. Dinah Manoff played Carol Weston in a few Golden Girls episodes and on Empty Nest. Also, Bea Arthur played the angel in Jessica's Wonderful Life.
