has it been like this all night? She drove home for a late diner with Sarah, and now she sat with Shan watching the entrance of the clinic, As they watched, the door opened and an ancient-looking man came out, leading an equally ancient woman who hobbled along with a cane in either hand. "Has it been like this all night?" She asked. "Like this, but less lively." what does has it been like this all night" ?

'has it been like this all night?' means 'has the situation been the same as this all night?', 'it' refers to the state, or situation that they are seeing. The reply is a bit of a joke - the very old people are obviously far from lively, so Shan is suggesting that 'it' has been very very quiet. (the same 'it'!) (diner should be dinner)
