SquabbleSpike, Anya, Tara and Dawn were sitting on the back steps listening to the screaming match raging inside the house.

Buffy, Willow and Xander were going at each other hammer and tongs. Giles was silent, but after his last attempt at intercession, he may well have spontaneously combusted in response to the tongue-lashing he'd received.
