Does the rich man interrupt Jesus?

Mark 10:20 (ESV)

20 And he said to him, “Teacher, all these I have kept from my youth.”

Wohlenberg1 thinks that the rich young man interrupts Jesus and so prevents him from pointing to the first table of the law. The text however does not give any reason for this (and certainly not if one gives attention to Matthew 19:19).2
