Dominic Toretto

  • [After Brian talks about plans to date Mia] You break her heart, I'll break your neck.
  • [Talking to Brian at Dom's garage] I live my life a quarter mile at a time. Nothing else matters: not the mortgage, not the store, not my team and all their bullshit. For those ten seconds or less, I'm free.

Letty Ortiz

  • [looks at women hitting on Dom] I smell [sniffs] skanks. Why don't you girls just pack it up before I leave tread marks on your face?


[unsettled by Vince glaring at him, Brian pays up for the tuna sandwich and leaves]
Vince: Yo! Try Fatburger from now on! You can get yourself a Double Cheese with fries for $2.95, faggot!
Brian: I like the tuna here.
Vince: Bullshit, asshole. No one likes the tuna here!
Brian: Yeah, well I do.
[Vince shoves Brian against his truck, triggering a brawl between the two.]
Mia: [to Dom at the back office] Jesus Christ, Dom, would you get out of there please? I'm sick of this shit! I'm not kidding, Dom get out there!
Dom: What you put in that sandwich?
Mia: [sarcastically] That's really funny!
Letty Ortiz: Dom!
Dom: Aight. [goes out and breaks up the fight]
Brian: Hey, man. He was in my face.
Dom: I'm in your face. [Vince charges at Brian, but Leon and Jesse restrain him.] Relax! Don't push it! You embarrass me!
Leon: [pushes Vince back to his car.] Get over there!
Dom: Jesse, give me the wallet. [Jesse picks up Brian's wallet from the ground and hands it to Dom. Dom reads Brian's faux driver's license.] "Brian Earl Spilner." Sounds like a serial killer name. Is that what you are?
Brian: No, man.
Dom: Don't come around here again. [hands Brian his wallet and walks back to his grocery shop.]
Brian: Hey, man, you know, this is bullshit!
Dom: [turns around and points at Brian's work truck.] You work for Harry, right?
Brian: Yeah, I just started.
Dom: You were just fired!

[Edwin calls Monica on her offer to have her whether he wins or loses the first race]
Edwin: Hey, hey, Monica! What's up baby-
Monica: [brushes him off] What's yo' problem nigga, you didn't win! [fellow drivers diss him]
Edwin: Fuck you, then!

[Brian and Jesse discuss the engineering schematics of Brian's Supra]
Brian: Man, you should be going to MIT or something.
Jesse: Yeah right... I got that what is it called...that attention disorder...
Brian: ADD?
Jesse: Yes... that... shit. Anyway, there is something about engines that calms me down, you know?

Mia: Vince, what was that restaurant you wanted to take me to with the little...
Vince: The little red candles?
Mia: Yeah that place...what was it called?
Vince: Cha Cha Cha...
Mia: Yeah [turns to Brian] Well you can take me there.

Mia: Dom is like gravity, everything just got pulled to him...even you.
Brian: No. The only thing that pulled me in is you, being friends with your brother is just a bonus.
Mia: Well that's nice, it's nice to come first once in a while.

[Before the police arrive, Brian hands Dom the keys to his Supra.]
Dom: You know what you're doin'?
Brian: I owe you a ten-second car.
