    go through the whole thing about

    Hello. Could you tell me what the underlined phrase means in this context?
    Thank you.


    Mum and Dad knew I was only a tree (in the school play). I'd finally told them.
    They went on about how the size of the part didn't matter
    and we went through the whole thing about giving other children a chance.
