Storyline

Frank sets up a new business selling computers and hires George and Lloyd Braun (seen in "The Non Fat Yogurt" and "The Gum") to compete against each other in a sales contest. But Frank's relaxation technique drives everybody completely nuts. Jerry's new girlfriend encourages him to let his emotions out. Kramer takes Frank's screen door and puts it up in his apartment, creating "Anytown, USA", but the local kids make relaxation difficult. Elaine discovers her "shiksa appeal" and suddenly every Jewish man in New York, including her former boss, is attracted to her. Written by halo1k

Trivia

This episode's plot was inspired by real-life events in the life of writer Steve Koren. While driving with his arguing parents, Koren was bewildered to hear his father shout "Serenity now!" at the top of his lungs as part of a rage controlling exercise his doctor had told him about and questioned whether or not the phrase was meant to be yelled.

I've always had a bit of a soft spot for this episode. Many years ago, I saw Jerry Stiller at a restaurant and yelled "Serenity now". I was later informed by his driver that it made his day. It was a funny episode too
