    Question be cool with =? (2 questions)

    Hello! Could someone please answer the questions as below for me? Thanks!

    Q1: be cool with = isn't care about?

    Q2: make a big deal of =?


    Marge: Bart, you've graffito-tagged public property.

    Bart: It was an accident.

    Marge: I can't believe you vandalized your own hometown, Bart. What would Jebediah Springfield say?


    Bart: He'd be cool with it.

    Marge: Homer, will you please help me make a big deal of this?
    Note:

    Marge is the mom; Bart is the son, and Homer is the dad.

    Q1: be cool with = to not care about? Yes, to be cool with something is to not be offended or bothered by it.

    Q2: make a big deal of =? Make a fuss about or blow out of proportion (in other words to make a big deal of something is to become upset/angry/indignant about something which others may see as being of little importance).
