Vin Diesel Thinks
One Line Accurately
Represents The
Fast And Furious
Franchise
By JACOB WILLEFORD
On his Instagram, Vin Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto in the “Fast & Furious” movies, has kept fans updated on the production of “Fast X,” the franchise’s final film. The series spans two decades now, and Diesel, along with the rest of the cast, continues to honor the memory of Paul Walker, who died in 2013 during the filming for “Furious 7.”
During a behind-the-scenes interview on "Furious 7," Diesel shared the one line in the first movie that laid the foundation for the franchise. "I think the one moment that made this saga is when my character says, 'I live my life a quarter mile at a time.' When the audience heard that, I think that's when 'The Fast and the Furious' became a franchise," Diesel said.
That line of dialogue happened in a conversation that Walker's Brian has with Diesel's Dom in his garage. In "Furious 7," Diesel would honor this moment by repeating the same line again at the end of the movie in voiceover as Dom and Brian raced off into the sunset — and this quote will likely come up again during "Fast X" to close out the entire series.
