From the text:

[He takes another step. She smashes a bottle on the table and faces him, clutching the broken top.]
STANLEY: What did you do that for?
BLANCHE: So I could twist the broken end in your face!
STANLEY: I bet you would do that!
BLANCHE: I would! I will if you--
STANLEY: Oh! So you want some rough-house! All right, let's have some rough-house!
[He springs toward her, overturning the table. She cries out and strikes at him with the bottle top but he catches her wrist.]
