Fast & Furious: Letty’s 10 Best Quotes

Among the many great characters in the Fast & Furious franchise is Leticia “Letty” Ortiz, who is Dom’s childhood sweetheart, current wife, and a prominent member of the crew. Like Dom, Letty is shown to be an expert driver, combatant, and thief. She also cherishes “family” and is arguably the best female character in the franchise.

Among the things that make Letty such a cool character are her quotes. In the six movies she appears in, Letty delivers one badass line after the other. She can be occasionally funny too if she wants. And whether she is angry or excited, Letty rarely utters a boring word, hence contributing largely to the franchise’s splendid dialogue.

When She Sees Two Girls Trying To Hit On Dom
“Why Don’t You Girls Pack It Up Before I Leave Tread Marks On Your Face?”
Letty warns girls to stay away from Dom in Fast and Furious (2001) - I Smell Skanks Scene

In the first-ever installment, Letty isn’t impressed when she arrives at a racing event and sees two girls flirting with Dom. Quickly, she orders them to leave, or else …

Letty’s threat isn’t an empty one as she has proven to be one of the best fighters in the Fast & Furious franchise over the years. Moreover, her pronouncements here show just how much she cares about Dom. Marking her territory might make her seem insecure, but it definitely has helped since their relationship has lasted way longer than others in this fictional world.

When She Responds To Han’s Lamentation
“Down Here, Gas Is Gold, Papa!”
Letty and the crew hijack a fuel tanker in Fast and Furious (2009)

Han isn’t delighted when he is recruited in Fast & Furious (2009) to help hijack fuel tankers in the Dominic Republic. He speaks up, stating he’d rather be robbing places with money. Letty quickly lets him know that in the country there are in, gas is way more valuable than anything else.

Han’s concerns are genuine because to him, hijacking tankers in Central America doesn’t appear to be a big improvement (moneywise) to the crimes he commits in Tokyo. Though Letty tries to convince him, he doesn’t buy it, so he returns home. It takes a bigger ($100 million) score in the fifth movie for him to show up again.

“He Was Praying To The Car Gods.”
Jesse prays for dinner in Fast and Furious (2001)

Dom’s current “family” is well known, but once upon a time, there was Jesse, a mechanic, and hacker. Still, in the first-ever installment, Jesse rushes to grab a piece of chicken during a group lunch session so Dom asks him to pray first. He struggles to come up with the right words and when he finishes, Letty jokes about the prayer.

Letty’s conclusion is not only accurate but it’s also hilarious since Jesse has completely no knowledge about issues that don’t involve cars. It’s a shame that Jesse gets killed later on as his buffoonery would have made for great entertainment in the flicks that follow. Luckily, Rom and Tej have done a great job of filling the void he left.

When She Meets Dom After Her Supposed Death
“That Girl You Remember, It’s Not Me.”
Letty repairs her car in Fast & Furious 6

Dom is surprised to find out that Letty, who was thought to be dead, is now working for Owen Shaw. When the two meet, Dom tries to reason with her, but she claims to not be the same girl he knew.

Letty isn’t exactly wrong since the amnesia she got after the explosion wiped out her memory, causing her to embrace a new life as one of Owen Shaw’s employees. Even though Dom still believes in her, a part of her is gone. Luckily, the situation isn’t permanent and she eventually realizes who she truly is.

When She Knocks Out A Security Guard But Runs Into Kara
“Would You Believe I Knocked Him Out With My Charm?”
Letty fights the Jordanian prince's bodyguards in Dubai in Fast & Furious

As Dom’s crew is pulling off a heist at the Jordanian prince’s party in Abu Dhabi, Letty knocks out a guard so as to ensure there is less interference. Unfortunately, she runs into Kara, the leader of the prince’s all-female bodyguard team. She attempts to humor her before a brawl breaks out.

It’s moments like these that make Letty one of the best Fast & Furious characters. Her suggestion that she didn’t physically harm the guard is indeed hilarious. It ranks among the most comical moments in the franchise because it’s obvious that the ever-serious Kara isn’t going to buy Letty’s explanation of how the guard became unconscious. As expected, jokes are soon followed by fisticuffs.

When Dom Shows Up With Cipher
“Dom! You Gonna Turn Your Back On Family?”
Letty begs Dom to not work with Cipher in Furious 7

Dom agrees to work with Cipher when blackmails him. As the villain attacks the team’s base with Dom, later on, Letty begs him to not forsake his friends.

Dom has always been a big advocate for loyalty and that’s why his actions baffle Letty. Her question is an important one since it suggests that he is a hypocrite. Even more interesting is that Dom doesn’t give an answer, choosing to kiss Cipher instead. However, he doesn’t truly turn his back on family. He only works with the villain to save his child.

When She Threatens Klaus
“Klaus, Aren’t You Team Muscle? Don’t Make Me Come Over There And Make You Team P***y.”
Letty threatens Owen Shaw's enforcer, Klaus, in Furious 6

Shaw’s enforcer, Klaus, starts getting suspicious of Letty when he learns that she has a history with Dom. He tries to bring this up in front of the boss but Letty is quick to threaten him.

It’s undoubtedly one of Letty’s most badass moments since Klaus, with his Hulk-like physique, looks unbeatable, yet he cowers under her threat. Letty’s confidence isn’t far-fetched either. Later in the movie, Klaus is shown to be all muscle and no skill. During a fight with Dominic and Hobbs, they easily get the better of him.

When She Begs Dom Not To Die
“I Vow Wherever You Go, I Go. You Ride, I Ride. You Fight, I Fight.”
Letty begs Dom not to die in Furious 7

During Dom’s fight with Deckard Shaw at a parking garage, the surface collapses, leaving Dom critically injured. A worried Letty then shows up, begging him not to die.

Letty and Dom prefer fighting together rather than showing romantic gestures, but there are rare moments when they profess their love to each other and this is one of the best ones. Letty realizes that Dom just might die and she dreads that happening. She, therefore, figures that the best thing she can do is talk to him.

When She Tells Off A Customer Trying To Hit On her
“You Want A Piece Of A**, Go To Hollywood Boulevard. You Want An Adrenaline Rush, That’ll Be Two Large.”
Letty threatens a fellow race in Fast & Furious (2001)

A man tries to hit on Letty as she is about to race. She tells him off, advising him to either go get a sex worker on Hollywood Boulevard or place a bet to see who wins.

RELATED: Every Fast And Furious Movie, Ranked By Budget

It’s yet another scene that predicts just how badass Letty is going to be throughout the franchise. She doesn’t entertain people who come off as disrespectful. She isn’t interested in flirtation either because the only person she cares about is Dom. And as is the case with every person she intimidates, the man shies away from confronting her any further.

When She Fires At Riley
“Wrong Team, B*tch!”
Letty fights Riley in Furious 6

The sixth installment is undoubtedly one of the most action-packed Fast & Furious movies and in it, DSS agent Riley is revealed to be a mole working for the villain, Owen Shaw. In the third act, she engages in a fight inside a plane and appears to be winning until Hobbs throws a harpoon gun at Letty. She then shoots Riley with it.

Letty’s words are fitting because good guys always win in the franchise. Riley could have had a great career with the DSS but she got greedy and decided to work with the bad guy. She obviously saw herself swimming in illegal millions in the near future rather than falling off a plane after being shot by Letty.

Fast & Furious 11 Needs Hobbs Vs. Dom (To End The Rock & Vin Diesel’s Feud)


Fast and Furious 11 needs to feature an epic fight between The Rock and Vin Diesel to resolve the real-life feud and bring closure to their characters’ relationship. The clash between Dom and Hobbs in Fast Five was a game-changer, and revisiting that epic confrontation in Fast 11 would elevate the action and add nostalgia. A showdown between Dom and Hobbs in Fast 11 could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation, reaffirming the underlying themes of family and unity in the franchise.

Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has returned to the Fast Saga, Fast and Furious 11 needs to include an epic fight between Johnson and Vin Diesel. In the high-octane world of the Fast and Furious franchise, the thrill of fast cars and heart-stopping action has always been amplified by the magnetic on-screen chemistry between its stars. However, a real-life feud between The Rock and Vin Diesel has been brewing since 2016. Director Louis Leterrier achieved the impossible by bringing The Rock back into the fold. Now, he must find a way to reunite Luke Hobbs and Dominic Toretto on-screen.

Ever since Fate of the Furious, the void left by The Rock’s absence has grown more conspicuous. The actor’s feud with Vin Diesel has cast a shadow over the franchise, making it increasingly difficult for the writers and directors to craft a cohesive narrative. As Fast Saga fans await the next installment, all eyes are on Leterrier to weave a compelling story that not only showcases jaw-dropping action but also offers a chance for Hobbs and Dom to partake in an epic showdown.

Hobbs & Dom Fighting In Fast & Furious 11 Would Bring Their Arc Full Circle

Fast X and Fast and Furious 11 act as sequels to Fast Five in many ways, so it makes perfect sense for the upcoming installment to build on the fight scene between Dom and Hobbs from Fast Five. The clash between the two powerhouse characters left an indelible mark on fans. Revisiting that epic confrontation could elevate the adrenaline-fueled action and add a layer of nostalgia to Fast and Furious 11. Now that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had a change of heart and returned to the Fast Saga, the anticipation for a rematch between his and Vin Diesel’s characters has reached a fever pitch.

Dom and Hobbs’ showdown in Fast Five was a game-changer for the franchise, propelling it to new heights with its intensity and raw energy. Given the unresolved tension between the two stars in real life, a meticulously crafted fight scene in Fast 11 has the potential to invigorate the climax of the series and provide a cathartic experience for the actors and fans alike. As Fast 11 may be the final chapter in the Fast and Furious universe, all eyes are on this anticipated clash. Hopefully, a brotherly fight will be the defining moment that brings harmony back to the Fast Saga family.

The Rock & Vin Diesel Can Put Their Feud To Rest On Screen

Vin Diesel and The Rock’s personal history adds a layer of complexity to any potential fight between their characters in Fast and Furious 11. Given their real-life feud, it’s unlikely either actor would be portrayed as the clear winner or loser. Moreover, from a storytelling perspective, it would be counterproductive to have Dom excessively harm or kill Hobbs or vice versa. However, as the series approaches its potential end, a showdown between Dom and Hobbs could serve as a decisive moment of reconciliation. After all, throughout the Fast and Furious films, audiences have witnessed a recurring pattern of men engaging in physical conflicts before eventually forming unbreakable bonds.

For instance, Fast and Furious sees Dom and Brian’s tumultuous relationship evolve into a deep brotherly connection after a series of knock-down, drag-out fights. This same sort of understanding between Dom and Hobbs would reaffirm the underlying themes of reconciliation and family that have contributed to the franchise’s enduring popularity. By embracing the notion that they are, in a sense, brothers, Dom and Hobbs could mend their on-screen relationship and deliver a broader message of unity. This would ultimately give fans a satisfying conclusion to their relationship in Fast and Furious 11.

Vin Diesel Posts Paul Walker Tribute On 10th Anniversary Of His Death


Vin Diesel shares a touching tribute to Paul Walker 10 years after the actor’s tragic death on November 30, 2013. Diesel expresses that “more smiles manage to break through the tears” as years pass because he knows his bond with Walker will be stronger than ever when they eventually reunite. Walker’s character, Brian O’Connor, remains alive in the world of Fast and Furious, and Diesel has previously teased that the franchise won’t end without a proper farewell to Brian and Walker.

Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel takes to social media to share a touching tribute to Paul Walker, 10 years after the actor’s death. First released in 2001, the debut installment in the long-running Fast and Furious franchise introduces Diesel as Dominic Toretto and Walker as Brian O’Connor. Both characters would return for a number of sequels, but Walker tragically passed away on November 30, 2013, during the production of Furious 7.

Now, on the 10th anniversary of Walker’s passing, Diesel has shared a touching tribute post on Instagram to honor his late Fast and Furious costar. Check out the actor’s emotional post below:

Accompanying an image of Walker with one of his daughters, Diesel reminisces about an important lesson learned from the late actor and how his legacy still lives on today. Diesel’s full caption is included below:

I was listening to a song this morning…‘That Lucky Old Sun’… thought of you, racing around Heaven all day. Hahaha…
The family of the Mourning, feels like it has grown since a decade ago… feel’s like that experience of losing someone is far too common today. Leaving more and more of us in search for meaning, trying to make sense of this complex existence…
Oh, I have finally understood what you use to do with the phone, “phone Fasting”… you had the insight to turn off your phone for long stretches of time. I started this year to do just that. You used to say, Vin and I can go years without talking, and our brotherhood will always be stronger than we left it, the ones who truly love you will always be there.
Amen to that.
This is one of my favorite images ever taken… You knew how proud I was when my daughter, the Alpha Angel, your niece would play the piano… well last night she was playing Moonlight Sonata… it took me back to the night before she was born. Me and you were working late… you were telling me that the best moment in life would be witnessing my child being born. That priceless smile you had when I told you the next day that I had cut the umbilical cord…
The next song she started playing on the piano is by an artist you would have loved, named Billie Eilish, ‘What was I made for’… when she started to play, the other angels all came and joined her at the piano and they started singing… wow…emotions… angels, I know you were listening.
After ten years… I know these days of beautiful remembrance will be filled with tears. But as time rolls on, with each year that passes… more smiles manage to break through the tears. Cause I know, when I see you again… our brotherhood will be stronger than we left it.
Miss you.

Will Brian Be Seen Again In Fast & Furious?
Furious 7 Reveals How Paul Walker’s Character Can Return
CGI Paul Walker in Furious 7.

Walker’s death in November 2013 came with a great deal of sadness, but it also created problems for the Furious 7 production, which was about halfway done. It was ultimately decided that Walker’s remaining scenes would be completed with a digital recreation of the actor, with his two brothers, Cody and Caleb Walker, serving as body doubles. Although Walker may have passed away, Brian remains alive and well within the world of the films, though he has not been seen in the flesh since Furious 7’s emotional ending.

The closet audiences have come to seeing Brian again (outside of the flashbacks featured in Fast X) is at the end of F9: The Fast Saga, when the character’s iconic Nissan Skyline pulls up at Dom’s house. This summer’s Fast X supposedly sets up the conclusion of the franchise in an 11th and potentially 12th installment (in addition to the announced Dwayne Johnson Luke Hobbs spinoff movie), and it’s very likely that the final movie will see Brian return in some capacity.

Diesel has also essentially teased as much, telling Total Film (via GamesRadar) earlier this year: “I couldn’t imagine this saga ending without truly saying goodbye to Brian O’Conner.” It’s unclear if this will mean a substantial digital recreation of the actor for extended portions of the film or a quick cameo at the very end, but it seems like audiences haven’t seen the last of Brian just yet. Even in death, Walker remains a key pillar of Fast and Furious, and it’s fitting that the final film will feature another heartfelt goodbye to further honor the late actor.

All 4 Fast & Furious Heroes Who Stayed Dead (& Which One Is Most Likely To Return)


Fast & Furious franchise is known for bringing back dead characters, but there are a few heroes who have remained dead. Jack Toretto, Dom’s father, died in a racing accident and his death should not be undone in the franchise. Jesse, a member of Dom’s crew, was killed in a drive-by shooting, while Vince was killed during an ambush. Elena, Dom’s love interest, was killed by the villain Cipher.

The Fast & Furious franchise has brought many characters back from the dead, but a handful of its heroes have remained killed off after their demise. The Fast Saga has taken its characters on a wild ride from street racing to the most outlandish adventures possible. The running theme of the Fast & Furious franchise has long been family, with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) building quite a large family indeed over the course of the Fast Saga’s run.

On top of its embrace of ridiculous, superhuman feats as a staple of its action scenes, the Fast & Furious movies are also well known for bringing back seemingly dead characters for more missions. The returns of Sung Kang’s Han in F9 and Gal Gadot’s Gisele Yashar in Fast X would be especially noteworthy in emphasizing the notion that no Fast & Furious death is irreversible. However, that is not entirely true, as there have been a few Fast & Furious heroes who have died and never come back.

4 Jack Toretto
An image of Jack Toretto driving a car in F9

Jack Toretto (J.D. Pardo) is the father of Dom, Mia (Jordana Brewster), and Jakob Toretto (John Cena), and is first seen in a flashback to 1989 in F9. Jack is a highly skilled race car driver who instilled that talent in his children, with Dom and Jakob being part of his racing pit crew. However, Jack’s racing career took a tragic turn when his car malfunctioned and crashed, killing him. Dom later beat his father’s racing opponent, Kenny Linder (Jim Parrack), almost to death with a wrench, believing him responsible for his father’s demise.

This tragedy also led to Dom and Jakob falling out, with Dom later coming to believe that Jakob set up their father’s death since he was the last one to work on his car. However, Jack was intentionally attempting to throw the race in order to get his family out of debt. He had asked Jakob to help tinker with his car so that it would fail, with Jack’s death being unintentional on both their parts. While his return has been theorized by fans, of all the characters killed off in Fast & Furious, Jack Toretto’s death should never be retconned.

3 Jesse

One of the early members of Dom’s family in the original The Fast and the Furious, Jesse (Chad Lindberg) was the brains of Dom’s crew in his enterprise of stealing DVD players. Jesse went on the run after losing a street race to Dom’s rival, Johnny Tran (Rick Yune), having bet his MK3 Volkswagen Jetta in the race. Jesse was later killed outside of Dom’s house when Johnny Tran and his associate Lance Nguyen (Reggie Lee) arrived and performed a drive-by shooting. Dom and Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) then chased down Johnny Tran and Lance Nguyen to avenge their fallen friend.

2 Vince

Vince (Matt Schulze) was another member of Dom’s crew in The Fast & the Furious, and he was badly injured during a truck heist in that first movie. After his recovery, Vince fled to Rio de Janeiro where he later reunited with Dom and family in Fast Five. Despite Vince having settled down with a wife and a baby son, he agreed to join Dom’s daring heist of Rio’s most feared crime boss Hernan Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida). Unfortunately, Vince was killed during an ambush by Reyes’s team. After successfully pulling off the heist, Dom left Vince’s intended share of the money with his wife and son.

1 Elena

Elena Neves (Elsa Pataky) worked alongside Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) in apprehending Dom and his crew in Fast Five. She and Dom gradually developed feelings for each other, however, and departed for Spain with Dom at the end of the movie. After Dom learned that his wife Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) was still alive despite her apparent death in Fast & Furious, Dom and Elena had an amicable split, only for it to later be revealed that Elena is the mother of Dom’s son in The Fate of the Furious.

After Elena was killed by the villainous Cipher (Charlize Theron), Dom and Letty raised the boy together, with the two naming him Brian after Brian O’Conner. Meanwhile, Dom later met Elena’s sister Isabel (Daniela Melchior), who joined Dom’s crew in Fast X. While Elena remains deceased as of Fast X, the arrival of her sister Isabel and Fast & Furious’s habit of not truly killing off characters makes her the most likely thought-to-be-dead hero to potentially return as the franchise speeds towards its finale.
