Jeitinho can be described as a smooth, sometimes illegal way of solving a problem or even a personal issue.

Not your right foot. The "pé direito" is the ceiling height, or the distance between ceiling and floor.

- Se você for alugar um imóvel pra festas, presta atenção no pé direito. Se for muito baixo tem brinquedo que não cabe.

mangueira

It can refer to a) a Mango Tree (mangueira in Portuguese, or pé de manga too), b) to the famous carioca Samba School, Estação Primeira de Mangueira (aka Mangueira), or yet to c) a hose. It really depends on the context.

- Você vai na mangueira hoje a noite? (probably the samba school, since not a lot of people go to mango trees at night... I believe; and since a hose here wouldn't make any sense)
