Salvadore Ross is a volatile mix of violence and frustration. He's not very bright and hasn't made much of himself so far. He is very much in love with Leah Maitland though she has told him she doesn't want to see him anymore. He thinks she won't see him because her father doesn't approve and that they both think she can do better. When he realizes he can actually exchange parts of himself, like his age, with others he sets out on a path to make himself more acceptable to both of them. Written by
How much would you give to be 26 years old again? How much?
[Halpert just looks at him]
Well come on, how much? A million bucks?
[a little amused]
All right, let's say a million dollars.
What about this pad? Do you own it?
Yes, I own it.
Do you throw that in as part of the deal?
How do you propose to deliver these years you rave about?
I'm gonna sell you *my* years.
[laughs out loud]
All right, I'll tell you what you do. You wrap the years up and mail them to me, uh.

'Why cant I want something once in my life and get it ?!!'
It's appropriate that Salvadore Ross (Don Gordon) is first seen driving another man's car as we will later see him gaining characteristics of other men. He is discontented, lacking in savoir-faire, and desperately wants to marry Leah (Gail Kobe).She finds him very obviously shallow and bad husband material. This is a story about getting what you want and how essential it is to be true to yourself in attaining it. Salvador does not look within to achieve his goal, but manages to accumulate what he needs by mysterious means. He realizes he has this strange power when whimsically swapping his broken hand for an old man's cough in a hospital. There is no rational explanation why this deal works, but as the old man is played by TZ regular character actor, J Pat O'Malley, I will call that enough providence for suspending disbelief by series five.
