Every Main Character’s First And Last Line In The Franchise (So Far)

Throughout the last 20 years, the Fast and Furious franchise has changed tremendously. Where the first movie was centered on fast cars and racing, the final few have seen they engage in government-operated heists. Where the biggest villain was a small-time gangster, now they are taking down cyber-terrorists and druglords.

However, most fans will agree the biggest change that has occurred would be between the characters. In some form or another, all characters had evolved. But whether it was for the better is still up for debate. Some may not realize but you can tell a lot about a character just by their dialogue.    

Megan Ramsey

“Stay away from me” – “When you guys figure it out, I guess you can let me know.”
While Megan Ramsey didn’t exactly have the most iconic entrance in Furious 7, the hacker has shown a lot of promise in terms of character development. Revealed to be the creator of “God Eye,” Ramsey has proven to be one of the most intelligent people in the series, with her strengths mostly highlighted through her computer and deduction skills. She has also been seen to have great chemistry with the other crew members too.
The only issue fans would say is that they still don’t know anything about her backstory. As her last line suggests, while she does feel comfortable around “Dom’s crew,” they hardly know anything about her. They didn’t even know her full name. She has so much potential that, hopefully, won’t go wasted.

Luke Hobbs

“All right, listen up. The men we’re after are professional runners.” – “Looking forward to it Shaw.”
Luke Hobbs may not class himself as a member of Toretto’s crew, but his relationship with them all has come a long way. When he was introduced in Fast Five, he was deadset in bringing all of them in and sending them to prison.
However, this soon changed once he realized how corrupt certain government sectors were and became a lot more open-minded to the crew’s activities. Still, this doesn’t mean that he will compromise his morals for anyone. If he thinks an individual, like Shaw, is dangerous and needs to pay for their crimes, he will continue with his pursuit and bring them to justice.

Gisele Yashar

Gisele in Fast & Furious Franchise

“Driver’s license.” – “Sh*t!”
As fans can tell from her first and last line, Gisele was a great character that was extremely undervalued in the franchise. She was an amazing fighter and a highly skilled member of the team. Problem was, she ended up only being used to serve another character’s arc.

When she was initially introduced to the franchise, she was intended to be the love interest of Dom Toretto. By the fifth and sixth movie, her arc ended up being tied to Han’s. Although fans will forever remember her for sacrificing herself to save Han, they probably won’t remember anything significant in her life – which was disappointing.

Han Lue

Sung Kang as Han in Fast And Furious Tokyo Drift

“That means a lot coming from you.” – “You would still be shaking down tea houses for chump change if it wasn’t for me.”
One of the more underrated character arcs in the franchise, Han has become one of the favorites in the entire franchise. Introduced in the Fast & Furious short film prequel “Los Bandoleros,” it is clear to all that Han and Dom have a great bond as they are seen to be laughing and joking about each other’s appearance. It is also quite apparent that Dom and Han highly trust each other, which was quite the opposite of Han’s relationship with Takashi (D.K).
After Han moves to Tokyo, the viewers learn he has a close friendship with Takashi. However, it turns out that Han may have been using him for one of his bolder scams. While Han does stand his ground when D.K. confronts him, it has become clear that he may have become too arrogant and known, which ‘cost him his life.”

Mia Toretto

“Tuna on white, no crust, right?” – “Yeah, good job.”
Who would think that a simple question about a sandwich would end up being one of the most important moments in her life? While Mia was initially introduced to be the “love interest” of Brian and sister to Dom, her role didn’t exactly get better. Most of the time, Mia disappeared into the background, doing her best to stay out of her brother’s heists.
Her protective and maternal instincts for the group may have brought her into the fold on more than one occasion, but after she became a mother, her character arc was reduced even further. Hopefully, she will be included far more in the F9 plot.

Roman Pierce

Tyrese Gibson as Roman in Fast and Furious 9

“Only my homeboys call me Rome, pig.” – “Welcome to the family Brian.”
Introduced in 2 Fast 2 Furious, Roman Pearce was seen to be the former childhood best friend of Brian. However, after Roman went to prison for a string of thefts and holding stolen goods, he grew to hate everything that Brian embodied and insisted they were no longer friends.

Nevertheless, his vendetta didn’t last very long as he and Brian soon reconnected once the former FBI agent helped him clear his criminal record. From that point on, the two were practically inseparable. So when Dom informed everyone that his son was called “Brian,” he was thrilled.

Tej Parker

“Serious, Ray, you’re making me lose money” – “Hey, Mrs. Parker”
When the audience first met Tej in 2 Fast 2 Furious, straight away, it was made clear that Tej liked to make money wherever he saw an opportunity arise – whether that be in street racing, gambling, or mechanical repairs. However, by the end of the seventh movie, the audiences have learned a lot more about him.
He’s skilled with technology, is a great strategist, and is extremely funny. As the movie series goes on, the writers have started to use his friendship with Roman to provide comic relief for the movies. Fans couldn’t imagine the series without him

Letty Ortiz

Letty Michelle Rodriguez in Fast and Furious

“Chill out bro. He’s just slinging parts for Harry, man.” – “He’s beautiful.”
When the audience was first introduced to Dom’s crew, Letty was deemed to be the more rational and level-headed member. As soon as Vince spotted Brian’s truck, she was the first one to try and ease his anger by telling him to not jump to conclusions.
Unfortunately, as one can remember from her last line, Letty hasn’t had much of an arc of her own. Sure, she has been involved in a few fight and action sequences. The writers just seem to always manage to tie her arc back to Dom’s. While fans would like to see how Letty, Dom, and Brian work as a family unit, it would be good to see Letty has an individual story too (even Rodriguez agrees).

Dom Toretto

“What’d you put in that sandwich” – “Okay, I guess it’s my turn to say grace.”
Considering that Brian was meant to be investigating a hardcore criminal, that wasn’t the first impression the fans got. Rather, they got to meet the humorous and light-hearted family man, who had a great relationship with his sister. While Dom could be dangerous and a little reckless sometimes, this adrenalin-fueled attitude stopped after a few years. He may partake in the occasional mission to help the government, but Dom prefers to settle down and just spend time with his family.

Brian O’Conner

Fast and Furious Pail Walker as Brian

“I don’t know. How is it?” – “Hey. Thought you could leave without saying goodbye?”
As fans know, the first spoken lines in the franchise were in an interaction between Mia and Brian. While the film did reveal that Brian had initially scoped the cafe to try and get closer to Dom, Brian later told Mia that he ordered “a lot of those sandwiches” because he wanted to get to know her more.
Ordering that sandwich proved to be the best decision of his life as he found the family he always wanted with the Torettos. Sadly, the franchise decided to retire the character in Furious 7 after Paul Walker’s untimely death, which meant his last line was more poignant and meaningful than the others.

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

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.
