The Supporting Characters’ 10 Best Quotes

The Fast & Furious franchise has always had a deep bench of great characters, and with Brie Larson and Jason Momoa coming on board for Fast X, new fan favorites might just emerge. Fans will also be looking forward to seeing which direction the franchise goes after director Justin Lin stepped down and Louis Leterrier took over.

While there’s no changing the main cast, for now, Leterrier can always add a supporting character or two. And hopefully, they’ll be accorded great dialogue too. Over the course of the franchise, many of the cool quotes have been credited to the main characters but the side ones have been left far behind.

When Sean Boswell Tries To Figure Out What DK Stands For
“Donkey Kong?”
Twnkie informs Sean about Takashi's prowess in Tokyo Drift

While heading to a race event, Twinkie explains to Sean Boswell that Takashi is the DK in Tokyo. Sean, who is still new, doesn’t understand what that means so he makes a rather hilarious guess.

Apart from being funny, the remark also counts as a perfect pop culture reference. Sean assumes DK would mean Donkey Kong because to him, Takashi looks like a goofy person who isn’t capable of doing anything meaningful. He soon learns that DK actually means Drift King. Nonetheless, he can be forgiven for not knowing since the drift culture is shown to be more popular in Tokyo than in his hometown in the US.

When Ramsey Analyzes Dom’s Crew
“Only Two Things Keep A Group Like This Together: Fear Or Loyalty.”
Ramsey sits at a computer in Furious 7

When she first works with Dom and his crew to prevent God’s Eye from falling into the wrong hands, Ramsey explains that she views life in a binary manner. According to her one of two options determines everything. And as per her assessment of Dom’s crew, there could only be two possible reasons why they are together.

From the moment she is first introduced in the franchise, Ramsey cemented her place as one of the smartest Fast & Furious characters. Apart from being an unrivaled programmer, she is philosophical too. On this occasion, she is spot on because Dom’s crew is actually held together by loyalty. Throughout the history of the franchise, no member has betrayed the team.

When Jesse Prays For A Meal
“Thank You, Spirit. Thank You For Providing Us With Direct-Port Nitrous Injection And Four-Core Intercoolers. Thank You.”
Jesse prays for dinner in Fast and Furious (2001)

Before Tej comes into the picture, Jesse appears occassionally as the techie and mechanic for Dom’s crew. One evening as the crew is about to have dinner, Dom asks Jesse to say grace and he goes about it in a rather interesting way.

Jesse’s prayer has everyone laughing because he happens to be very serious while saying it yet it’s way off-topic. But it’s moments like this that qualify him as one of the mot underrated members of Dom’s crew. Once again, he proves that he is not only very qualified for his job but that he also doesn’t have afirm understanding of other areas of life.

When Queenie Tries To Remember The Name Of Ramsey’s Program
“It’s Called The Devil’s Bumhole Or Something.”
Magdalene Shaw speaks with her son Deckard in Fate of the Furious

When Deckard visits Queenie in prison, she asks him whether he’s heard about Gods Eye, the new program that can monitor everything. She struggles to remember its name, but Deckard reminds her.

Queenie has never been portrayed as the stereotypical well-mannered parent, hence it makes sense that she would think of such a weird name. After all, she enjoys committing crimes just as much as her sons. The remark also makes the mother-son banter between Deckard and Queenie even more wholesome.

When Sefina Hobbs Hears Her Son Is Being Hunted
“We Samoans. We Can Handle Trouble.”
Sefina welcomes Hobbs to Samoa in Hobbs & Shaw

Hobbs is very honest with his mother when he comes back home to enlist the help of his brothers in fighting Brixton Lore. Instead of scolding him for disturbing their peace, Sefina assures him that they’ll handle whatever is coming.

It’s yet another moment in the franchise when it emphasized that family is the most important thing. Despite the fact that Hobbs has been away from home for years, his mother isn’t hostile toward him. Instead, she marshalls his brothers and prepares them for the threat that is to come. And while doing so, she also comes off as one of the toughest characters in the franchise.

When Suki Greets Brian
“What’s Up, Bullit?”
Suki greets Brian in 2 Fast 2 Furious

Suki might no longer be in the franchise but fans will always remember her for her pink Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GTS. And she was quite the socializer too. When she bumps into Brian in one scene, she greets him with the words above.

It’s a fitting quote that pays homage to one of the best car movies of all time. By referring to Brian as Bullit, she is comparing him to the speed living, Mustang-driving Steve McQueen character, Lieutenant Frank Bullitt from the movie Bullit. As a racer and former police officer, Brian sure does fit the Bullit description.

When Elena Says Her Final Words To Dom
“Save Your Son.”
Elena begs Dom to save their son in The Furious

Former DSS agent Elena Neves isn’t so lucky when she and her son gets kidnapped by Cipher. The villain has her shot dead but before that happens, she yells out what’s arguably the most tear-jerking quote in the franchise.

Elena’s last statement isn’t memorable only because of the emotional weight. Dom does manage to save his son. Regrettably, he has never managed to make Cipher pay. Furthermore, Elena’s demise counts as one of the most tragic Fast & Furious deaths because she doesn’t get rescued whereas almost every other protagonist always breaks free. She doesn’t get to see her child grow either.

When Mando Assures Mia That They’ll Be Safe
“Anyone Messes With You Here, They’re Messing With The Entire Country.”
Mando speaks to Dom on phone in Furious 7

After Mia’s home gets bombed by Deckard Shaw, Dom requests his friend Mando to host her and her children in Brazil. She is skeptical about how safe she’ll be but Mando reassures her.

Mando’s words are to be believed since he has a history of resourcefulness. When Dom and Han needed a fake bank vault to fool the police with during the Rio heist, he was more than happy to provide one quite quickly. Given how much influence he has in Brazil, there is no doubt that he’ll have troops ready in case Deckard comes knocking.

When Vince Warns Dom About Brian
“That Was In The Third Grade.”
Vince warns Dom about Brian in The Fast & The FUrious

After meeting Brian for the first time, Vince doubts his motives. He tries to warn Dom but in his defense, Dom claims there was a time he didn’t know him well either. Well, Vince reminds him that that time was way back in the third grade.

RELATED: The Main Fast & Furious Characters Ranked By Fighting Ability

Vince hasn’t always been the wisest character in the franchise but he is smart enough to know that Brian isn’t who he says he is. He also understands that the stakes are too high for Dom to just trust anyone he has met recently. After all, before Brian’s arrival, everyone else in the crew had known each other for a long time. Dom should have taken him seriously too because if Brian hadn’t fallen for Mia, he would have turned the crew in.

When Twinkie Requests Sean To Not Damage A Car
“Don’t Mess Up Mona Lisa, All Right?”
Twnkie offers Sean the chance to ride in Fast & Furious

While handing over Han’s Nissan Silvia 515 to Sean, Twinkie warns him that it’s the Mona Lisa of the drifting world hence he shouldn’t mess it up. Well, Sean goes ahead and damages it, placing him in the racer’s debt.

Comparing the Silvia to the Mona Lisa is a bit of an exaggeration because it generally isn’t considered one of the best Fast & Furious cars. But through his concern, his love for automotive engineering also becomes evident.  Sean has a history of damaging cars and it’s no surprise that Twinkie’s concerns end up being a direct prediction of what’s to come.

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

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.
