What makes that scene great?

Regarding prof. Grobstein's story, I wonder if because the scene was the most memorable part of the movie for him when he was young, if he already had made a connection with that scene and, thus, when older it became easier for him to make a deeper connection with that scene, which allowed him to engage with it in a manner that we discussed would be ideal for a reader to engage with a text, and thus the scene became his favorite. If he hadn't particularly noted that scene when he was younger, would it be so powerful in the second viewing?
