Might you be thinking of dianoea, which is the use of animated questions
and answers in  developing an argument (sometimes simply the equivalent
of anthypophora, where an individual quickly asks and then answers his
own questions).

See The Forest of Rhetoric (at
http://humanities.byu.edu/rhetoric/search.htm) very handy for such
concerns.  But this might not be the answer you were looking for.  Hope
it helps.

I think the term you're looking for is stichomythia, developed first in
early Greek drama.

You may be referring to stichomythia, the form of dialogue found in the
intense exchanges in episodes of Greek tragedy as well as in subsequent
drama.  When the exchange consists of comic insults in Renaissance
plays, I think the term used is "flyting."  Such insults are like tennis
volleys, but may be more than one line each.

The rapid-fire, one-line-at-a-time dialogue is called stichomythia.

The term is "stichomythia" (the Greek words sticho and mythos meaning
"order" and "word". If two characters exchange double lines it is called
"destichomythia", using half lines you say hestimomythia. I guess
