To give up. It translates as "ask for the chamber-pot". That's also what most older brothers force the younger ones to say when they are bullying them.

- Sai Durval! Cotonete molhado não!!!
- Pede penico! Pede penico!
- Tá bom! Penico!
- Há! Bichinha!!!

What the hell is that?

Diabéisso is a contraction of "que diabo é isso", or literally translating "what the devil is it". Has the same meaning as WTF too.

- Olha aquilo no céu!
- Diabéisso véi?

Jeitinho can be described as a smooth, sometimes illegal way of solving a problem or even a personal issue.
Second definition: When Brazilians face a big and complicated problem, some people try to find an easier unexpected way of solving it.

Tip: Jeitinho is usually accompanied by Gambiarra!

- Essa menina não quer sair comigo!
- Imagina, podemos dar um jeitinho nisso!
