Gibbs stiffened but the others snickered.

Gibbs struggled to regain control. "As I understand it, the altercation started with a derogatory comment to one of the women?"

The young man grunted. "They wanted to know how much Faith, Buffy, Dawn, and Willow charged by the hour. And if there was a group rate."
