Fast & Furious: The 10 Worst One-Liners In The Franchise, According To Reddit

The 10th Fast & Furious movie is currently in production, which is going to be the biggest one yet, and it has just been revealed that Brie Larson is playing Brian O’Connor’s sister.

With an ever-growing cast of A-list stars, the franchise has come a long way since its relatively humble beginnings.

But one thing has remained a constant in the always-evolving series, which is the abundance of awful one-liners. In some cases, it’s why fans love the series, but other fans find them distracting, and sometimes they ruin the whole movie for them.

Between over-the-top macho insults, failed out-of-character catchphrases, and awful attempts to be hip, this is first draft material.

“You Almost Had Me? You Never Had Me. You Never Had Your Car.”
Dominic Toretto, The Fast And The Furious (2001)

The Fast and the Furious is a movie unrecognizable from its sequels, as it’s actually about street racing, and many fans of the most recent movies often forget that. But one of the most iconic scenes in the first movie isn’t the first race between Brian and Dom, but the conversation that follows. Brian laughs and claims he almost had Dom, to which Dom responds absolutely ripping into the undercover FBI agent.

Ryaneffintaylor thinks it’s one of the worst lines in the entire series, noting, “that movie is a gold mine for terrible lines,” and calls Dom’s line their personal favorite. But what follows is arguably even more ridiculous, as Dom describes Brian’s racing style as “granny shifting.”

“Smack That A**!”
Suki, 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

The first few Fast & Furious movies almost work as an anthology, as they all feature mostly entirely different characters and are set in different locations. 2 Fast 2 Furious was the first example of that, as the movie replaced Dom’s crew with street racing caricatures, as each racer hilariously dressed in the same colors as their souped-up cars.

Suki, dressed in all pink and purple drives a convertible Honda S2000 in the same colors, and her dialogue is just as over the top too. Pacsun_bro recalls when Suki “yells ‘smack that a**’ when she jumps her car off of a bridge. It might be a pretty adrenaline-fuelled moment, but excitedly screaming “Smack that a**!” while risking her life is almost as confusing as the title 2 Fast 2 Furious.

“That’s The Thing About Street Fights. The Street Always Wins.”
Dominic Toretto, Furious 7 (2015)

The final five minutes of Furious 7 are surprisingly touching, as it’s such a heartfelt tribute to Paul Walker following his death and is enough to make anyone cry. But it follows some of the series’ most ridiculous moments yet. Leopardchief recalls the climactic moment of Dom and Deckard Shaw’s showdown.

The Redditor explains the line is “one I always thought was kinda cool until I suddenly realized it really wasn’t. After Dom tells Deckard “the street always wins,” which in itself already doesn’t make any sense, Dom stomps on the ground of a parking lot, forcing it to cave in on itself completely. Many movies didn’t research their subject matter, and the Furious 7 writers certainly didn’t brush up on their physics.

Edwin, The Fast And The Furious (2001)

In The Fast and the Furious, Ja Rule plays street racer Edwin, and it started the tradition of popular rappers getting roles in the franchise, as Ludacris was cast in 2 Fast 2 Furious, and Lil Bow Wow appeared in Tokyo Drift. However, Edwin is a strange character in what is one of the weirdest micro-subplots of the original movie.

Edwin is promised a threesome from Monica if he wins the race, but this user points out that the weirdest part is when he screams her name when other cars pass him, hilariously as if it’s such a compelling arc with so much at stake. Edwin is then shown up by Monica, as not only does she not reward him with a threesome, but she also breaks up with him after not winning the race.

“A Whole Lot Of Vaginal Activity.”
Roman Pearce, Fast Five (2011)

The unnecessary amount of crotch shots has always been one of the franchise’s shortcomings, and they massively cheapen the movies, but Fast Five took it to another unruly level with this ridiculous one-liner that this Redditor refers to. Rome especially has been one of the cruder characters in the franchise, but all of his previous activity looks like a saint’s behavior compared to this quote.

What makes it particularly cringey is that it’s in response to learning that the heist will result in an $11 million payout for each crew member. The quote feels like it was a placeholder in the screenplay for a better line, but it somehow never got changed from the first draft.

“Street’s Closed, Pizza Boy. Find Another Way Home.”
Leon, The Fast And The Furious (2001)

Pmuranal hates the line that appears in the first Fast & Furious movie. The line appears after street racers have closed off the road for the race, and Leon rather impolitely tells a delivery driver to find another road. It’s not the best-written line, it seems pretty pointless, and it’s unquestionably and transparently Pizza Hut product placement.

However, a fan theory makes the quote great, as it’s commonly speculated that it might have been the disgruntled delivery driver who called the police on the street racers after being embarrassed. And that adds a whole other level to the short and seemingly inconsequential scene.

“Dom Is Like Gravity, Everything Is Just Attracted To Him.”
Mia Toretto, The Fast And The Furious (2001)

The Fast & Furious franchise has always kept science at arm’s length, and it isn’t exactly going to win any awards for being the most factually accurate when it comes to physics. But Gstdog points out that before the series was defying physics with massive stunts, the first movie could even get the law of gravitation right.

In the first movie, Mia tells Brian, “Dom is like gravity; everything is just attracted to him,” The Redditor points out that gravity certainly doesn’t work like that, and they hilariously correct the quote, explaining that if Dom is like gravity, then “he makes people feel attraction to bodies of large mass.”
