How is it looping?

HI, I don't understand how is this working, I thought that we will need a loop to iterate every time we click the button, but this doesn't seem the case here! How is the program able to allow more than one click each time we run it? What I mean, if the program is reading every line, without looping, it will get to the last line and exit the program before we are able to click another click!

thanks
