Turn it out

Think about releasing the dialogue by allowing your character to clarify; backtracking a little over what they have just said. Think also about repetition, interruption, changing the subject and echoing.

Then listen to how dialogue is refracted by the physical world. Cars honking. Animals braying. Plates breaking.  All these sounds get in the way and give the dialogue an extra depth.
