Daughter: 「だって、じゃあたんざくの意味がないじゃん」
Daughter: But, in that case tanzaku are meaningless aren't they?
Dad: 「いいのっ」
Dad: It's okay
Daughter: 「なにさ、おとうさんはすぐいいのって言うんだから」
Daughter: What! Because you say it's okay?

I understand すぐ to mean soon/immediately etc. I can't understand what it means in this context.

My guess it that it adds the meaning 'just' as in "am I supposed to believe it's okay just because you say so?". But that's a complete guess and the link with 'soon'/'immediately' seems very tenuous.

If further context is needed, these lines follow immediately after this question:

    なにさ! is more like an interjection, like ふんだ!なによ!なんだよ!もう! etc. Both なにさ and ~だから! here express 不満、不平、or 苛立ち etc. (irritation, complaint, dissatisfaction).

「すぐ」, in this context, means "readily", "very easily", etc.

If you do or say something habitually without thinking, we say you すぐ do or say something.
