Index Subtitles and Make them Searchable

Have you ever wanted to search for a movie or episode by a line that was uttered by a character? Moreso, wouldn't it be cool to jump straight to that timestamp/scene? I'd love such a feature. With certain text-based subtitles, it should be possible to build and index a database of them. I'm not certain if SQLite is the tool for the job (this seems better suited for unstructured data-oriented systems like Elastic, etc.). 

Anyhow, hopefully a core, plugin, or tools developer sees this post and agrees!

I suppose this might be useful for songs with embedded lyrics too, but those are much less reliable in my experience.
