Introspection or Narcissism?

The following may be an interesting (entertaining?) exercise.

Imagine you are writing screenplay and write the dialogue for the following scenarios:

1. A and B are introduced to each other.
2. A and B have been roomates for a month and enter the house after work and have nothing to do.
3. Same as 2, but A and B have been roomates for 3 years.

In each of the above scenarios, assume both A and B are different instances of yourself. By 'instance' here, I don't mean exact physical replicas -- I just envision the scenario in which A and B have similar mental attributes as yourself. You are ofcourse, free to assume the extent of replication.

Note: The film Prestige explores this idea slightly, coming to think of it.
