Mensagem: 

Imagina = You're welcome.  Very common here.  I think the idea is "Can you imagine someone thanking me for doing something so insignificant?"

Não por isso = You're welcome.  Also very common here.  The idea seems to be "Don't bother to thank me for something so small and meaningless."

 

Grana = money

(As you know, the basic monetary unit in Brazil is the "real".  A common way to say "real" in the South is "pila".  Vale tres pilas = The price is three reais.

 

"Tu" is used a lot in the South instead of "você".
