Was this contentious woman his ideal

This is from the song, My Ideal as performed by Chet Baker. In a back story piece that is cut, our male character meets with a monk that points to a Chet Baker song. This one pops up when our character discovers Baker. The monk implies that he’ll know his calling from looking into someone’s eyes. Our character dismisses this. Then, when he runs into this “contentious woman,” all he can think of is Chet Baker.
