Keep dialog realistic. Remember to use contractions or it could sound stilted.  Saying it aloud helps. If one or more characters have an accent, be sure to reflect that as well, even if your spell-checker gags a bit. You want your readers to be able to virtually hear conversations. You should create an impression of what their voices sound like as clearly as you do their appearance.
