The little questions are the easiest to answer.
Whacking up jail times for "idiots" who put needles in strawberries was a no-brainer for Scott Morrison.
A lot of sound, the appearance of action, good grabs for the nightly news and social media.
But rushing the laws through parliament is one thing, answering the big policy questions is another.
"A tremendous rush can be applied, tremendous energy can be applied to some matters, while a whole range of other government activity is simply languishing," Labor's Mark Dreyfus said on Thursday.
"What happened, one might ask, to the foreign donations bill?
"What's happened to energy policy, what's happened to climate policy?"
Those are some of the big questions for which the prime minister doesn't yet have answers.
He's asked Energy Minister Angus Taylor to find options to replace the axed National Energy Guarantee.
That policy had the support of unions, farmers, business groups, industry groups, Labor, Liberal party heavyweights and the overwhelming majority of the coalition party room.
But no - it's apparently time to reinvent the wheel yet again on energy.
Reports have shown the decision to axe the carbon tax drove prices up as investment stalled due to the policy uncertainty.
That uncertainty is here again, and the Greens are warning a dramatic investment fall-off is coming when the renewable energy target ends in 2020.
So Taylor is talking about investment in "fair dinkum power", which is probably gas, but no one really knows.
Somehow Morrison has to come up with yet another new energy policy that can pass a sceptical Senate, while also making sure he doesn't fall victim to the same hard right-wing obstinacy that doomed Malcolm Turnbull.
The climate policy question is a bit easier to answer - there probably won't be one. Tick that one off.
Morrison is also looking for answers on migration and he's walking a tight line.
His budget relies on skilled migrants who create jobs, fulfil needs in the economy, and pay taxes.
Even better, Australian governments don't have to wear the cost of educating them from childhood through to university.
But while regions are crying out for people, Melbourne and Sydney are where the jobs are and they are getting packed.
What's Morrison's answer to getting people out to the regions instead of the cities?
Still waiting. There is no answer on that yet.
Foreign donations reform was a big deal under Malcolm Turnbull as Australia's security agencies warned about foreign countries buying influence in local political parties.
The draft laws are still before an inquiry but, following some amendments, could pass parliament before the election.
Religious freedom? The government has had the review since May, but is refusing to release it.
Morrison on radio this week promised strong religious freedom protections, but no indications of what, when or how.
These are tough questions, yes, but important ones.
Instead Morrison has focused on the easier questions he can answer now.
Dropping plans to lift the retirement age from 67 to 70. Tweeting about "gender whisperers" in schools. Bantering with rapper Fatman Scoop on social media.
Doing a special deal with the Catholic school sector was Turnbull's work, but Morrison has brought it home to lift another barnacle off the government.
The royal commission into aged care is a real step, but the results won't be known until well after the next election.
The story that sums up the Morrison government's haste to look like they're getting things done is the journey the strawberry legislation had to take.
In order to make the new penalties law, the documents had to be flown to Darwin, where Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove is visiting a school in Humpty Doo.
The government jet will fly an 8000km round trip with the papers to get his signature so they can become law this week.
"The rush to do this suggests it's about being seen to do something," Greens MP Adam Bandt said in the parliamentary debate.
There's a lot of sound, a bit of fury, and heap of big questions still waiting for Morrison's answer.
