As Elaine prepares for the bar mitzvah of her former employer's son, George is helping repair his parent's screen door when he learns that his father has gone into computer sales. While George is surprised to find that Frank expects him to work, Jerry tries to convince his girlfriend Patty that he can get mad. Then, as young Adam Lippman gives Elaine more than just a friendly kiss and Jerry learns to make anger work for him, George's dad hires neighbor Lloyd Braun to sell computers, too. And when Lloyd racks up some impressive numbers, Frank threatens to fire George unless he wins a sales contest.
After a forced apology provokes Adam to renounce his religion, Elaine must fend off the elder Lippman's advances, too. As Kramer uses the Costanza s old screen door to recreate a small town atmosphere right outside his apartment door, Jerry's angry breakup up with Patty unleashes a flood of emotions. Meanwhile, as George sets out to win the contest, Elaine suspects it's her not being Jewish that attracts him, forcing Mr. Lippman to also renounce his religion just to prove she's wrong. And as Jerry decides to go with his emotions and propose to Elaine, George stores computers at Kramer's in order fool his dad.
Although Kramer adopts Frank Costanza's technique for easing stress, Lloyd warns that it only bottles up anger. And the claim proves true when Kramer suddenly explodes and destroys the cache of computers just as George is retrieving them. Meanwhile, as Jerry's emotions influence his work, Elaine learns that the Lippman's rabbi is interested in her as well. And as George's own emotions cause Jerry to revert to his former self, Frank finally discovers that Lloyd was also a fraud as he and George try to save their business.
"Serenity Now" is the mantra Frank Costanza is instructed by his doctor to say whenever he is feeling his blood pressure rise.
Jerry proposes marriage to Elaine in this episode. It's actually the second time he proposed to her in the series. The first was in the Season Six episode "The Mom and Pop Store," although in that instance he said it because he knew she had temporarily lost her hearing.
Kramer's signal to George to take action is the phrase "Hoochie Mama!"
"Serenity now! Serenity now!
"What is that?"
"Doctor gave me a relaxation cassette. When my blood pressure gets too high, the man on the tape tells me to say 'Serenity now!'"
"Are you supposed to yell it?"
"The man on the tape wasn't specific."
