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
Well, are you happy now that you've convinced her she's too much for a *bum* like Salvadore Ross, hmm?
I'll admit, I wouldn't choose you for my daughter. But it's not my decision, it's hers. Besides, I may be wrong about you. She obviously sees you differently than I do.
No I don't.

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.
