How do you write fiction with memorable dialogue?

You cross out, delete, or otherwise remove anything that’s extraneous.

When you finish, you go back over the dialogue and mentally check that it truly does say what you want your character to say and not one single word more.

In other words, your characters speak up and then shut up.
