Jay tangos with Professor Iris.

Professor Iris Dunwoody is a theater department director at Smithdale University. She appears in the episodes Bust a Move (1) and Bust a Move (2). Manny organizes to present a demo reel to Professor Iris, but realizes that Jay switched it with his and Manny's sex tape. Manny arrives at the audition without a demo reel. Iris rejects Manny from being accepted into Smithdale's theater department, resulting in Manny leaving in tears.

Jay sneaks in to Manny's audition in an attempt to return the correct tape, but is too late. He witnesses Professor Iris reject Manny, and takes it upon himself to help her. He arranges a meeting with Professor Iris, pretending to be Manny's agent to give Manny another audition after wooing her. She was portrayed by the late Shirley Douglas.
