DID YOU SEE THAT GUY SPIN HIS HIGH SCHOOL TEXTBOOK OMG WHAT A BADASS.

"Is that guy the hamburglar?" - Meghan "McToasty" McCarter

"That sign just said 'Go ducks, kill the Indians. Are we OK with this?" - Elliot "Do we need to come up with a cultural insensitivity drinking game for this movie?" - McToasty

This is the F&F movie with the least amount of character and actor overlap...by far.

"THE FLAG WAS A BRA" - McToasty "Duh, what did you use to drag in high school?" - Me "HOMEWORK" - McToasty

"I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME"

"This movie is like the Animatrix. It doesn't add plot-wise, but it's world-building." - Ned

OMG ASIANS ARE SO WEIRD LOL SUCH A RELATABLE SITUATION THEY WAVE WITHOUT SWALLOWING #COMMUNISTS

Oh wow bud you forgot to take off your shoes in Japan YOU HAD ONE JOB

Also HELLO JAP BOW WOW #NotRacist #ISwear

Ok guize throttle response, such an easy issue to deal with in a rotary. We're talking 1.3 liters here? I believe? For the Renesis? If it ain't your throttle cable, what the fuck have you done to have bad throttle response? The worst maps ever? But it certainly doesn't look like you have a standalone? I'm just...not sure what's going on here. /rant

Also, when in the states, he's Californian. Upon arriving in Japan, he immediately becomes Southern.

Me: "That's a Cressida. They're awesome. We don't have them here in the US." McToasty: "Do they have Troiluses there too?" ... "Don't look at me like that, I have a theatre major!"

Bow Wow just winked at the camera #meta

Han. ALWAYS EATING #HanPoppingChips #HanSnacking #HanSnacks #It'sAThing

Han's like "You owe me a ten second car, gringo." (Or whatever the Japanese call us whiteys)

I have to admit, I'm fairly durnk, and many of my party are quite...uh...they've...had somma dat wacky tobacky...ONE REEFER, OK?!?! Ok it was more than one reefer. The point being, insight is lacking. But this movie doesn't exactly demand it? IDK have a picture of the lame-ass VeilSide RX-7 from this movie after being run into a small hill

"Only a truly powerful car-wizard can control NOSbike." - Ross

Me: "That's a Lancer Evolution VIII, that's the first Evo they brought to the states. 4WD, 4G63, around 300 HP." Meghan: "I'm so torn between my total disinterest in cars and my undeniable love for know-it-alls."

Han: "What do I look like, a zebra?" He's either not a referee, or making a quite racist comment about Bow Wow playing with a bunch of whiteys

"how cum i nevr c u drift?" guyz, omg, sms l33t sp33k 1z 1n d1s m0v13

"Man those tires ain't cheap!" - Bow Wow "MINOTAURS AIN'T CHEAP." - McToasty

"You know, the only time I've ever played video games was when you made me play drunk Mario Kart Wii." - McToasty. I'm so proud.

SPOILERS: Oh my god. You guys. My roommate Elliot can NOT handle the death of Han. He's said things like "IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME".

Ross: "Elliot might be going crazy."

I'm sorry, SONNY MOTHERFUCKING CHIBA talking about honor? SIGN US UP

UH OH it's fedora time.

That moment when you think you're gonna die because that guy you're racing for honor and girls is about to die on top of you #everybody'sbeenthere

Elliot's sadness at Han's demise has been totally overwhelmed by his adoration of Dom in his cameo appearance. And...I feel like that brings us full circle. I'm done. I'm in love, but done. This has exhausted me, and thrilled me. These movies are closer to me know, despite their spitting in the face of the culture that raised me. These movies are hilarious, misguided, beautiful, and touching. Some are masterpieces. Some are disasters. All are worth the investment. I hope one day all of you can experience what I just did, Oppo. I love you. Good night.
