Verdana, definitely. It's far more legible in large amounts of text than Tahoma, because it's not as high - letters start looking on stilts. You need, alas, the breadth and width to read quickly from left to right. Although this does limit you to a few letters less per line of subtitling than Tahoma would allow, the increased legibility should certainly help.

And I prefer straight quotes, as they do their job without taking unnecessary letter space which is now at a premium...

Thinner lines, though if there's one particular scene where for one line of text it would fade int eh background, you could always use thickness 2 there.
