I think Frank tries to embody the wise-cracking, clever mobster archetype and sometimes he hits (see above) sometimes he misses.
A miss would be the "blue balls of the heart" comment. But it feels real because that seems like the kind of thing you might look at as clever and poignant in the moment, then regret it as soon as the statement leaves your mouth.

I personally like that not everything he says is clever and doesn't hit the way he wants it to when it initially comes into his head.
