gs: Lori Loughlin (Patty) Ross Malinger (Adam) Matt McCoy (Lloyd Braun) Bruce Mahler (Rabbi Glickman) Jerry Stiller (Frank) Estelle Harris (Estelle) Richard Fancy (Lippman)

Frank is supposed to say "serenity now" every time his blood pressure is in danger of going up. Jerry's girlfriend gives his Knicks tickets away. She comments that she has never seen him get "real mad." George gets Kramer to help him fix his parents' screen door. They remove the old door and Kramer takes it with him. Frank is selling computers; he wants to bring George into his business. Lippman's boy tries taking advantage of becoming a man at his bar mitzvah by using his tongue while kissing Elaine. Kramer installs the screen door outside his apartment to give his apartment "the cool even breezes of Anytown, USA." His initial instinct is to quit, but George decides it is finally time to take on his arch-nemesis, Lloyd Braun, whom Frank has also hired to sell computers. When Jerry learns how to get mad, it releases all his other feelings, including caring and another that results in a proposal. Kramer fights with the neighborhood kids of "Anytown, USA." George tells Elaine she is attractive to the Lippman men because of her "shiksappeal." The result gets her two Lippman "men" who want to denounce their religion. George hatches a scheme to sell more computers; however, continual use of the phrase "serenity now" has an "impact" on computer sales. The release of emotions from George has an impact on emotional Jerry. Elaine seeks help from a "rabbi" to see if she can reduce her "shiksappeal."

b: 09-Oct-97 pc: 903 w: Steve Koren d: Andy Ackerman

NOTE: Viewer Will Hines notes that George tries to sell Jerry a computer. I'll add that the type of computer Jerry has been using has long been a topic of discussion on the alt.tv.seinfeld newsgroup. He also tries to sell computers to "Art Vandelay."

Did you know that a Rabbi is allowed to date?..It seems that a member of our congregation has a timeshare in Myrtle Beach. Perhaps we could wing on down after the High Holidays if you are not too busy? Elaine? 'Lainie?

Jerry: (Crying) What--what is this salty discharge?

Elaine: Oh my God. You're crying.

Jerry: This is horrible! I care!

One of my favorite Seinfeld quotes.

George: So, that's it. All of my darkest fears, and... everything I'm
capable of. That's me.
Jerry: Yikes. Well, good look with all that.

One of my favorite moments ever.

George: Well, I got just the thing to cheer you up. A computer!
Huh? We can check porn, and stock quotes.
Jerry: Porn quotes... I'm so lucky to have a friend like you, George. Ever
tell you how much I love you?
George: What?
Jerry: I love you, George. Come here.

>>>More specifically, a NON-JEWISH woman that Jewish men are attracted to.

Strange how Elaine would be considered a Shiksa, considering she is JEWISH on the show. In fact barring Jerry, she seems the MOST Jewish of the entire cast. Note the "Oy Vey" remark in this episode.

George: Dad, you really should lay off the 'serenity now' stuff.
Frank: So, what am I supposed to say?
George: 'Hoochie mama'?
Estelle: Move your crap, I'm comin' in!
Frank: No you're not! Hoochie mama! Hoochie mama! Laughing

The exact episode escapes me now, but Elaine specifically says at one point that she is not Jewish.
