Great dialog makes any movie, even ones you wouldn't expect.

For example, people love to quote lines from Star Trek TOS.

From TNG, or the movies? Nope. The dialog is pedestrian and forgettable, and the shows are boring.

I don't know, I quote this[1] all the time, and it's a great scene.

Ironically, Stewart played Ahab in a version of Moby Dick.
