3. When he tried to make a little girl's dream come true.

Their dad used Monica's boxes to protect his Porsche from water, leaves and gook and stuff. He put together some boxes for her, trying to make sure she didn't find out, because he knew it would hurt her feelings.

Ross was by no means perfect. He was jealous and insecure, but more often than not, he meant well. Also, not acceptable to defend Chandler and disparage Ross when he kissed his best friend's girlfriend, called Monica (and other girls) fat on multiple occasions, and attempted to abandon Monica on their wedding day. Not saying Ross is better in comparison, but they all made mistakes.Not to mention, Ross could make fajitas, he practiced dance karate (a deadly but beautiful sport), and he was a proud paleontologist, despite the fact that his last two papers had been widely discredited. And it could have been worse, he could've be a geologist. Plus, they were on a break!!!!!!!!!!!!!
