Clark's going to hang out Xmas lights on the house.
- That's a lot of lights, dad.
- Yeah, well, I'm sure it's a lot of work, too, but if I'm out in the cold and I'm committed to decorating the house, I'm gonna do it right and I'm gonna do it big.

"right" -- adverb, "in accordance with correctness or truth; accurately"

Am I right?
Thank you.

    I would say "do it right" means "do it the way it should be done," and "do it big" means "do it on a grand scale."
