Wise words...

"In science there is a dictum: don't add an experiment to an experiment. Don't make things unnecessarily complicated. In writing fiction, the more fantastic the tale, the plainer the prose should be. Don't ask your readers to admire your words when you want them to believe your story."
– Ben Bova

Indeed, there is power (and beauty) in simplicity - maybe that's why we cut dialogue to the bone.

Or, to put it another way:

Keep it simple, stupid.
