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 Release Delay & Filming Start Date Confirmed By Director


Fast and Furious 11
is facing a release date delay to Summer 2026 due to strikes, with director Louis Leterrier confirming the sequel will not be hitting its April 4, 2025 date.
Leterrier also confirms that filming starts in Fall 2025 after finishing a horror movie in September.
The final installment in the
Fast Saga
reunites Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto for one last ride, while also leaving the door open for other spinoffs.

After facing multiple delays due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes, Fast and Furious 11 is seeing its release date delayed. The next installment in the Vin Diesel-fronted franchise is expected to be the last mainline sequel, while development continues on the Dwayne Johnson-led spinoff Hobbs & Reyes, a mysterious standalone movie penned by Fast X’s Zach Dean and a potential female-led spinoff. While a filming start date was never confirmed, Universal had previously set the movie for an April 2025 release date.

During a recent interview with Collider at a CCXP MX panel, Louis Leterrier was asked for an update on Fast and Furious 11. The director went on to confirm that the final mainline installment in the action franchise will no longer be making its April 4, 2025 release date, instead now aiming for a Summer 2026 release window with the filming start date being set for this fall. Check out what Leterrier said below:

It’s happening. It’s happening very, very soon. I’m able to shoot a little horror movie this summer. I’m finishing my horror movie on September 15th, and I start Fast on September 16th.

Will Fast 11’s Multiple Delays Help Or Hurt The Sequel?

Much like the tenth film before it, Fast and Furious 11 has faced a few behind-the-scenes hardships in its road to getting off the ground, namely the delays stemming from the 2023 strikes. While the latest movie seems to have retained its core creative team in comparison to the shift in directors from franchise vet Justin Lin to Leterrier on Fast X after reported creative differences between the former and Diesel, this change didn’t seem to help much with the continued downward trend recent sequels have seen from critics. Check out how the franchise’s Rotten Tomatoes scores compare below:

Title RT Critical Score RT Audience Score The Fast and the Furious 54% 74% 2 Fast 2 Furious 37% 50% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift 37% 69% Fast & Furious 28% 67% Fast Five 78% 83% Fast & Furious 6 71% 84% Furious 7 81% 82% The Fate of the Furious 67% 72% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 67% 88% F9: The Fast Saga 59% 82% Fast X 56% 84%

Even looking outside the Fast and Furious franchise, many movie sequels have found themselves hurt by various delays, be they from creative changes, general release shifts or other factors. The action genre in particular is one in which lengthier development periods can lead to diminishing returns, be it A Good Day to Die Hard, Rambo: Last Blood or Diesel’s own xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. While Fast and Furious 11 may only be getting pushed back by a year, the delay is nonetheless a concern that the final installment could find itself in trouble.

Related 10 Most Exciting Things To Expect From Fast 11 Fast & Furious 11 will pull all the strings to become bigger than the previous installments, and here is why the film is worth being excited about.

On the other hand, the longer wait for Fast and Furious 11 to close out the mainline series of movies could actually prove beneficial for the sequel. Though Leterrier may be busy with another project in the lead-up to filming the next installment, writers Oren Uziel and Christina Hodson should now have more than enough time to really look back at the script and ensure it learns from the critical missteps of recent installments to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the Dominic Toretto saga.

Vin Diesel Already Has His Perfect Fast & Furious Replacement Franchise With 51-Year-Old Remake


Vin Diesel’s dominance in Fast & Furious is ending, but Kojak could kick off a new action franchise for him.
Kojak’s reboot faces an uncertain future, but its similarity to Fast & Furious makes it a worthy project for Diesel.
Diesel’s potential shift from criminal racer to cop signifies a fresh start in a possible Fast & Furious-like series.

Vin Diesel’s days of playing Dominic Toretto are numbered, but the actor has already found his perfect Fast & Furious replacement. Diesel found a major breakout role in the early 2000s thanks to participating in The Fast and the Furious. The original 2001 street racing crime movie became the springboard for a sprawling franchise that has lasted for over two decades. The success of the Fast & Furious movies transformed Vin Diesel’s career, turning him into an even bigger star, especially in the action movie genre. But, Fast & Furious 11 is planned as the final chapter for him and the franchise.

The Fast & Furious franchise’s end will put Vin Diesel in an unfamiliar position of not having a major franchise to lean back on. This presents the actor with various options, such as changing the course of his career to pursue non-franchise roles. However, the more likely outcome is that Diesel will attempt to find a new IP that can replace Fast & Furious. He has had trouble in that regard recently, with franchises like xXx or Riddick running cold and Bloodshot and The Last Witch Hunter failing to launch franchises. There is another option for Diesel, though.

Kojak Can Be Vin Diesel’s New Action Crime Franchise After Fast & Furious
Diesel Has Been Developing The Reboot Since 2015

The impending conclusion of the Fast & Furious franchise means it is finally time for Vin Diesel’s Kojak reboot to get off the ground. The project was announced back in 2015 with Diesel re-teaming with Universal Pictures, the studio behind Fast & Furious, to develop a movie based on Kojak. The original TV series starred Telly Savalas as Theo Kokaj and ran for three seasons after debuting in 1973. The series revolves around Kojak, a New York detective known for being willing to go beyond the law and a love for cars and lollipops, and follows him as he investigates different cases.

Kojak was rebooted in 2005 as a TV show starring Ving Rhames, but it only ran for six episodes

Development on Vin Diesel’s Kojak movie has not been very active in the nine years since it was announced. However, it still maintains the base similarities to Fast & Furious, which makes the project a worthwhile endeavor for Diesel in terms of finding a new action franchise. He would now have another big action series about cars and crime, essentially making Kojak into a newer version of Fast & Furious. The irony here is that Diesel takes on the role of a cop after playing criminal racer Dominic Toretto.

Vin Diesel’s Involvement Can Morph Kojak Into A Major Action Franchise
Kojak Could Be A Fast & Furious Clone

Looking at the original TV show, Kojak might not necessarily project to be a major blockbuster action franchise akin to Fast & Furious. The TV series was relatively grounded and small due to the nature of its production. However, the fact that Diesel and Universal pinpointed this property as something they wanted to revive together is telling. The announcement of Kojak’s reboot came months after Furious 7 debuted in theaters and took the franchise to new heights at the box office and in terms of how ridiculously big the action and story could get.

It’s sometimes difficult to remember that Fast & Furious started off with a story about DVD thieves who were also street racers before Diesel helped turn it into something much bigger. With that experience and success already behind him, it would be understandable if a similar path was envisioned for Kojak. The series could then morph into a Fast & Furious clone, one that gives Vin Diesel a new franchise to headline and Universal a “fresh” action franchise to grow.

The Rock’s WWE Run Means Fast & Furious 11 Must Make 1 Major Hobbs Change


Hobbs from Fast & Furious 11 needs a gritty edge like The Rock’s WWE character to keep the franchise fresh and exciting.
The Rock’s time away from the Fast & Furious universe provides the perfect reason for Hobbs to return with a personal vendetta and a more savage attitude.
While Hobbs shouldn’t become a full-fledged villain in Fast & Furious 11, adding some edginess and dirty tricks could make his character more intriguing and dynamic.

Fast & Furious 11 must make one major Hobbs change after The Rock’s incredible WWE run. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s WWE return surpassed his recent movies, with the actor creating some of the best work of his career. Having returned to a thunderous reception, The Rock was able to flip the crowd’s reception by becoming a heel and playing a major part in WrestleMania’s main events. The Rock hasn’t played a villain on screen for years, as even his depiction of Black Adam lent more into the character’s anti-hero side, which made his wrestling run all the more refreshing.

While his wrestling character may not perfectly translate into the Fast & Furious universe, there is one aspect of The Rock’s WWE run that the franchise should attempt to implement. After debuting in Fast Five, The Rock’s best Fast & Furious scenes helped contribute to the movie series becoming so popular, with Luke Hobbs becoming an instrumental part of the story. He was even given his own spinoff alongside Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and is set to get a solo movie in the future. Despite this, Hobbs would still benefit from adding one key aspect of The Rock’s WWE run.

The Rock’s WWE Run Proves Fast & Furious 11 Needs To Give Hobbs More Of An Edge
Fast & Furious Would Benefit From Hobbs Adopting Some Of The Rock’s WWE Tendancies
Dwayne The Rock Johnson in Black Adam, WWE, and Hobbs and Shaw

Given how electrifying The Rock’s recent WWE run was, there is no doubt Fast & Furious 11 needs to give Hobbs more of an edge. Although the character has had his more serious moments, like most of the Fast & Furious cast, Hobbs tends to mix action with comedy. Hobbs and Shaw are supposed to be two of the more stoic heroes, yet they are constantly at each other’s throats and cracking jokes to help maintain the franchise’s lighthearted core. However, giving Hobbs a grittier side would help the character thrive upon his return.

The Rock’s Fast & Furious return may redeem Fast X’s box office, but the character needs to come back stronger than ever. By allowing him to be more ruthless, he can still maintain some elements of comedy but also become more interesting in the process. Johnson proved that despite being a detestable heel, he was still as hilarious as ever during his recent WWE tenure. This proves that he can maintain Fast & Furious’ tone and humorous style while being more layered; therefore, Hobbs adopting some of The Rock’s WWE characteristics could make him even more entertaining.

Fast & Furious Already Has A Reason For Hobbs To Be More Savage
Hobbs Has Been Away From The Franchise For Several Years

Making a major change to Hobbs’ character could be tough to explain, but Fast & Furious 11 already has a great reason to make him more savage. His four-year absence from the franchise gives him a perfect excuse to come back with a vengeance and potentially have a personal attachment to Fast & Furious 11’s villains. Hobbs’ time away from the main story could be explained through a connection to Fast X’s secondary villain, Aimes. Aimes’ villain twist in Fast X was well executed and suggests he’ll be around for the sequel, which is the perfect reason to bring back Hobbs.

Having a more personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, but it would also give him more of an edge.

Fast X never explained why he’s back, but having a personal vendetta against Aimes could be an intriguing reason. Given Dom and Dante are the focal point of the franchise’s conclusion, Hobbs returning to take down Aimes would avoid overshadowing the main story while still giving him an interesting role. Having a personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, while also giving him more of an edge. This provides The Rock with the perfect reason to implement some of his heel traits while still portraying a morally good hero.

2:34 Image 147 Related Predicting The Ending Of All 13 Fast & Furious Characters In Fast 11 The Fast Saga is set to conclude with Fast & Furious 11 – or Fast X 2 – but how will Dom Toretto and his family’s stories come to a definitive end?

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five
A custom image featuring Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs in the Fast and Furious movies Custom image by Debanjana Chowdhury

Although The Rock’s villainous tendencies worked well in the WWE, Fast & Furious can’t bring him back as an antagonist. Johnson already played the main villain of Fast Five, as Hobbs was originally an enemy of Dom and his crew before becoming an ally. Hobbs’ role in Fast Five was one of his best, but despite being the main antagonist, he always had a level of integrity. Dropping all of this to make him a villain in the final movie would be completely unnecessary, especially as the franchise needs him to remain a hero for his spinoff.

Fast & Furious 11 may end the main story, but The Rock will be part of the franchise beyond this, and altering his character so drastically wouldn’t make any sense. Instead, adding some extra edge to his character would have the same effect and would avoid stealing the thunder from Dante and Aimes. Although Fast & Furious 11 shouldn’t make him a villain, the film can still allow Hobbs to play dirty and pull some cheap tricks in order to show a grittier side, while letting him taunt his enemies when he inevitably helps save the day.

Fast & Furious 11
is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2025.
