According to this site, the meaning will be revealed in the last line of the episode. Some of the guesses:

International Furan Technology
Integral Flyback Transformer
Integrated Function Test
Injustice For Tuco
Innocent Flight Trafficker
Iím F-ing Ted!
Iím Fine, Thanks

Weak that they didn't broadcast the f-word. I know that Mad Men was able to get away with that... it's not like they're not allowed to.

Wow.

Great episode.

Spoiler:
Seeing Walt being a simpering panty waste is getting hard to watch. He's turned into a sickening pansy and I'm hoping that will change. I thought he had finally become a man during the second season, now he's back to his old ways.

That bitch Skylar's true colors are finally out in the open. The show's made it clear what she really is, but now the cards are on the table. She's been looking for a reason to dump her sick husband and go screw around, and now she can play 'righteous' about it and she's riding the wave. All that 'concerned' shit... my ass.

Jesse's back to business and that's cool.

Hank beating down the 'Dean of Mean' Keith Jardine was pretty cool, he and a bunch of other MMA guys train here. Hank's trying to prove to himself he's not a coward, most people who are deeply afraid pick fights and stuff.

Great episode. These people are all fucking nuts.

Skylar fucks Ted because it's the one way she can hurt Walt without the kids knowing, Jesse and Hank are both close to having breakdowns, and Walt will probably go off after what Skylar told him.

It certainly looks that way from the previews for next week. He is going off on somebody. This season looks like it is setting up very interesting. Gus is going to have to make a decision on Walt. I think he may warn Walt as to what is about to happen to him. We'll see.

"Are your kids at home?" I actually got hard hearing that, I'm sure Ted exploded in his pants.

But yeah, Sylar is a fucking bitch (literally now), kinda reminds me of Betty Draper.

I also liked that they talked in spanish in the drug lords meeting, I mean, that's being realist, Gus seems to be a more intelligent/educated person that can learn spanish.

at Saul's cactus housewarming gift. Love that character.

You ain't kiddin'. At this point, Walt Jr. and the baby are the only characters who haven't broken bad. I wouldn't be surprised if the next episode opens with a shot of the baby smoking a crack pipe.

I'm still a little fuzzy on the relationship between Gus and the cartel. It seems Gus is the cartel's regional distributer, but if that's the case wouldn't Tuco have been a competitor with Gus? And if the cartel manufactures meth for Gus, wouldn't the cartel be pissed about Gus selling Heisenberg's product (and cutting into their business)? Maybe they have some sort of hybrid partner/competitor relationship.

I still find Gus a much scarier character than The Cousins. Can't wait to see how that situation pans out.

Am I the only one who sees that Gustavo is latino?

He is dark skinned and all but I've never got any inkling from him that he is non-latino, so the whole "speaking spanish" thing seems natural to me.

I was in a non-sexual context but I clearly remember Pete muttering "Fuck you" after Don left a conversation with him. I might have dreamed that however, lol. IIRC, it was a first season episode.

I just think that taking that word out took a lot of weight out of what she said (at least for me).

Spoiler:
Gus is going to kill them, I'd bet money.

When the cartel boss said 'I'm not even sure they will listen to me' and Gus glanced in that window and showed just the slightest tinge of emotion on his face?

They're dead.

Tuco wasn't a competitor for Gus, I bet he didn't move even a 20th the volume. He was family, and probably did muscle work for the cartel.

Someone back in the first thread said they thought the twins had come over because of Tuco, and they were right.

Re: Breaking Bad -- "I.F.T." -- 04/04/10

I was really liking the way Walt came in, let her call the cops, said it was his house too. I also liked how he showed her the money, said it was all for her and the kids, that what he did was wrong but that it was for good reason, he thought at the time.

And then she trumped it all with the I.F.T., and to me she now looks more scummy than Walt. She had sex with her book-cooking boss purely to spite Walt and drive him out of the house. Walt cooked meth to try make a lot of money for his family before he died. Granted, he also has a string of bodies in his wake and there was that issue with the plane...

Still, for some reason I just can't stand Skylar, though I will give her credit for wanting to spare their kids from knowing their dad was a criminal.

With the cartel knowing his identity, I don't see how Walt will ever be safe. Not that he needs to be safe, but the cartel being on to him makes his eventual demise all the more tangible, even more than his cancer did.

Fully agree and he will use it as leverage to get him cooking again soon. Without even the previews, you could see in Walt's eyes after she told him about Ted that he is a ticking time bomb, you can see the craziness just below the surface, Cranston nails that part of the character.

I still can't believe this is the same guy playing the dad in "Malcom in the Middle". Heh.

Agreed, I never watched it much at all, but I'll stop for a minute on the re-runs just to watch Cranston and it's literally night and day in the characters and watching BB so much it's weird now to see him with hair.
