In addition to guest-starring roles, she also co-starred in two short-lived series: In the Beginning starring McLean Stevenson, and Baby Makes Five starring Peter Scolari. Morrill made her last onscreen appearance on an episode of the hit ABC-TV sitcom Coach in 1992. Jean Stapleton stated in an interview for the Archive of American Television, Morrill was the stand-in for her in the ninth season episode of All in the Family, "A Girl Like Edith" where Stapleton had a dual role. She made an appearance in the ABC-TV action series MacGyver, in the season two episode "D.O.A.: MacGyver" as Helen Wilson.
