** CharlizeTheron being cast as the new villain in the 8th installment hot off the back of her acclaimed turn as drive-fast, fight-fierce heroine, Furiosa, in ''Mad Max: Fury Road'' made for a lot of good ''Fast and Furiosa'' puns, coupled with the two movies' similar focus on cars, driving, fights, and action the casting seemed particularly appropriate.

* DuelingStarsMovie: Fast Five is most notable for being Creator/VinDiesel vs. Wrestling/DwayneJohnson. Johnson's character was originally going to be an older guy, but awesomely enough the filmmakers took up a fan's suggestion on {{Facebook}} that it would be great to see Diesel and Johnson in a movie together. [[spoiler:And TheStinger for #6 hints that they're taking it up a notch by adding Creator/JasonStatham.]]

* RealitySubtext: Since Walker died midway through Furious 7, the film had to be rewritten to accommodate it. The films tagline is "One Last Ride", there's a scene at [[spoiler:Han's]] funeral where [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness the normally lighthearted Roman grimly tells Brian he can't take any more funerals]], the recurring subplot about how Brian can't afford to go haring off around the world and risking his life when he has a family to take care of.

** The first movie is best known as a VinDiesel flick. Paul Walker actually plays the main character. Downplayed example, as Vin Diesel's character is just as critical as Walker's. It's also worth noting that in the more recent films, especially 5 and 6, Dom actually does fit the main character role more than Brian by this point.

** At the end of ''6'', there is an exchange between Roman (Tyreese Gibson) and Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) at the Toretto home. Roman says, "Hey Mia, better hide your baby oil!" to which Hobbs responds, "...You better hide that big-ass forehead!" The latter line was unscripted, and the delivery caused Tej (Chris Bridges) to spit out his beer in laughter. This take was used in the final cut.
