Ras immediately replies "Come." and they continue the montage and my friend was like "Whoa, timeout. Timeout, back it up. That was a deep moment and we're running right through it." I think it was in between a montage as well.
I think it's fine the way it is. If I recall correctly it follows immediately after the flashbacks of little Bruce seeing his parents get murdered, being conforted by Gordon and then by Alfred following the funeral. So the way I take it is that, in the present day, Bruce has been talking to Ra's about that whole sequence of events for a while before the latter asks him whether or not he still feels responsible for the murder of his parents.

Like soundofyousick says, there's also payoff for that moment in the sword fight scene. Besides, Ra's comes off as the harsh father figure in BB anyway, so it's no wonder he doesn't stop and dwell too much on Bruce's tragedy (well, apart from that scene besides the fire where he mentions his wife). He's more about helping Bruce overcome his grief by tapping into the potential power his anger offers him.
