    see the whole thing over again!

    What does "over again" mean here? Does "over" emphasize "again"? G could see every figure in wax?

    88)G:Hi, Sunny! How was your field trip?
    S: It was great. We went to the Wax Figure Museum
    G:Sounds interesting! How did you like the exhibition?
    S: It was incredible! I could go see the whole thing over again!
    G : Really? What was so special about it?

    Okay, thanks, but content-wise, did S mean she was able to see celebrity figures such as Obama, Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, etc from a new perspective?
    Did she mean a new point of view or complete eye-watching of so many figures?

    Re: see the whole thing over again!

    No. Over again means just "another/a second time". Nothing to do with perspective. Besides, IMO, wax figures give you no perspective whatsoever about the person portrayed. It could give you some perspective on the work of the sculptor, though.
