    It’s interesting how the guy refers to her as tu, and she then replies, referring the him as você. I guess they’re not employing a different level of formality? And so it’s just regional, like an accent almost?

      Indeed, the use of Tu/você isn’t really a matter of formality in Brazil. It is much more a matter of regional dialect. You are correct. Now, the use of “o senhor” is a matter of formality, but not tu vs. você.
