Bicker - to fight amongst siblings or the like, trivial verbal disagreement
Wrangle - in between bicker and quarrel
Quarrel - verbal disagreement on a higher level, perhaps between husband and wife or boss and employee
Brawl - to physically fight, usually very roughly and involving blood

So, in conclusion, from least significant to most significant magnitude of disagreement,
Bicker >> wrangle >> quarrel >> brawl (this is completely removed from the rest, it involves physical contact)

Note: wrangle can sometimes mean fighting physically, but this is usually only used in the southern US
