What makes dialogues attention-grabbing?

If you don’t want that to happen, make it short and sweet and to the point. Write your dialogue and then go back over it and see how many words you can cut. When you have pared it to the fewest possible words to get the message across, then you’ll have created dialogue that gets readers’ attention.

Because they don’t have to wade through a lot of fluff to get to the essence.
