    OK, took me a second to work this out, your talking about occasions where conventional patterns are lampshade hung by using descriptors of the usual typical content rather than specific examples.

    So rather than have characters have an actual argument, you would have something like:

    B: Retort
    Statement questioning B's parentage
    B: Statement implying A's fondness for newts
    Childish single word insult
    B: Equally childish single word insult.

    As mentioned above, the Bruno the Bandit arc Story Title is a very good example:

    That said, I have a strong feeling we have this somewhere, but don't have the first clue what I would search for to find it.
