I think I started somethin', I got what I wanted
In an attempt to escape his pain, Frank sets up his story of desire: a porn star who wants to be a dentist. She ends up leaving his emotions as numb as Novocaine (a local anesthetic synonymous with dentists).
This also reminds us to “be careful what we wish for” as he has the girl he wanted but is now realising how screwed up she is.
