Stanley enters the apartment with Mitch and Steve, all returning from bowling. Blanche hesitantly introduces herself to Stanley, who did not know Blanche was coming to town. He asks Blanche some straight forward questions about herself and her plans, while removing his sweaty shirt and taking a drink. Blanche is appalled.He sizes her up with a glance; she hides her eyes from him. He is direct and blunt; she dances around every topic. But the funny thing about opposites is that they attract. The instant animus between the characters is powerful and binds them together much more so than more positive emotions. This is the beginning that sets up the inevitable date they have with each other.
