To the surprise of absolutely no one, "Furious 8" is heading to theaters — or "Fast 8," or "2 Eight 2 Furious," or whatever they decide to call it. The most recent installment in Universal’s muscle car movie series, "Furious 7," is about to pass $1 billion in foreign box office. Only two other movies have ever done that, both directed by James Cameron: "Avatar" and "Titanic."

At the just-concluded CinemaCon convention for movie theater owners in Las Vegas, "Fast and Furious" star Vin Diesel revealed the next movie’s release date: April 14, 2017. Save the date!

The scripts for these movies might not be smart, but they give you ridiculous stunts accompanied by equally ridiculous one-liners. Here are some of the cast's favorite one-liners and some of our own.
