The best way to break your friend out of a prison bus is to do it as destructively as possible; causing it to crash and flip ten times, risking his death as well as the other inmates, and the prison guards/drivers who are just doing their jobs.

      Save the hard-ass federal agent chasing you down, and he'll help you take down the bad guy and let you get away.

        You can survive a water landing after driving off a 1000 foot cliff, just as long as you jump out of the car 20 feet before impact.

          Asking Vin Diesel randomly about what his father was like only set up Vin Diesel to ask the same to Paul Walker, who in an embarrassed and pathetic fashion states that he doesn't even know what his father even looked like. But it's alright- it added on excellently to the sentimental value of the movie.

              A 10-thousand pound safe will make no noise if dragged across city streets. Only the damage and cars dragging it will make noise. Not the safe, though.

                A voyage of enemies with firearms will be waiting for you on the other side of the bottom of a canyon in the middle of no where after you plunge several thousand feet into water and emerge unharmed and safe.

                  Switching immense and heavy safes is a simplistic, easy and sly task to accomplish when being chased by over 5 police cruisers that are trailing you by several feet.

                    Police helicopters are never put to use in South America during a chase, especially in arguably one of the most destructive and elaborate high-speed pursuits in human history.

                      Being as ripped and strong and spry as The Rock comes with a price... It makes you REALLY sweaty.

                        If you're a pretty police officer who can translate and has got motivation, you can be invited by US Special Task Force agents to tag along in their missions.

                          Dom's and Brian's associates will travel to Brazil before they even ask what the job is. I guess "We've got a job for you" is still enough for wanted criminals to cross half the globe.

                            Nothing like a narrow, on-foot escape from the Feds to inspire you to break the news that you're pregnant!

                                  Even in the midst of a brutal fistfight, there's ALWAYS time for The Rock to execute a handspring.

                                        When The Rock smashes Dom's car, you KNOW it's about to go down.

                                          Don't even try racing Dominic Toretto; it's a lost cause. You'll only end up embarrassed and out a car.

                                            Dom and Brian are so precise that they can drive a large bank vault through the streets of Brazil, cause thousands or maybe even millions in property damage, with next to no civilian casualties.

                                              So what's up? As far as Han goes, are we just ignoring his fate in "Tokyo Drift"?

                                                It may have taken an escape to Rio, but Vince FINALLY got over Mia. He's even cool that the buster planted his seed in her.

                                                  When you tell your crew that you're planning to rob the baddest of bad guys, they'll all back down. But despair not. Mention the $100 million payday, and they're ALL in.

He took his kids to church every Sunday, he held neighborhood barbeques, and he made sure his daughter did her homework correctly. He was a swell guy. So it makes perfect sense that Dom would grow up to be a convicted felon/murderer.
