In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, action-movie star Vin Diesel has continued to reprise his role of intimidating street racer Dominic Toretto in the ever-popular Fast and Furious movie franchise.
Next up on the 47-year-old’s docket is “Fast 7”, which stars longtime cast members the late Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez.
Before you catch the high-octane flick in theaters on April 3, take a trip down memory lane. Here are the 7 best quotes from Toretto.
7. “It doesn’t matter whether you win by an inch or a mile, winning is winning.”
This was said by Toretto early on in the series’ original film and set the tone for a strenuous, but fruitful relationship between Toretto and Brian O’Conner (Walker).
6. “You know this ain’t no 10-second race.” “I’ve got nothing but time.”
The series’ fourth installment, “Fast & Furious”, went without Diesel’s presence up until the very end when he delivered this gem.
5. “I’m one of those boys who appreciates a fine body regardless of the make.”
As we know, Diesel’s two kryptonites are cars and women. In this scene from “Fast & Furious”, the brolic car enthusiast is questioned by Gisele (Gal Gadot).
4. “You’ve got balls, man.” “I’ve been told.”
Diesel might just be Hollywood’s king of one-liners. He and Letty Ortiz (Rodriguez) have a back-and-forth about Toretto’s ‘death wish’ in this scene from “Fast & Furious 6.”
3. “I don’t feel like I’m under arrest.”
Like love at first sight, when Toretto and Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) first met on screen in “Fast Five”, it was pure bliss.
2. “You don’t turn your back on family, even when they do.”
Toretto appeared to lose his girl Letty in “Fast & Furious”, but she returned alive and well in “Fast & Furious 6.”
1. “I live my life a quarter-mile at a time. Nothing else matters; not the mortgage; not the store; not my team and their bullshit. For those 10 seconds or less, I’m free.”
In what was truly one of the more emotional scenes in the entire “Fast & Furious” franchise so far, Toretto tells O’Conner the story behind his father’s death and why he doesn’t race his Dodge Charger.
