Slimy. Smarmy. Punchable. Those are a few words that come to mind when you think of Mad Men's Pete Campbell, played by Vincent Kartheiser. The amoral and ambitious accounts man would be an actual villain if he weren't so ham-handed. Yet, over the past six seasons, we've managed to find a soft spot for Pete without actually having to like him. You just have to appreciate him for who he is: a transparently opportunistic and insecure man-child who doesn't actually care about self-improvement, just self-advancement. Heck, he can't even be bothered to get a driver's license. In the final-season premiere, there are hints that Pete, now living in California, might be a changed man. But honestly, we're not holding our breath. It's perfectly fine with us if Pete remains Pete. Below, check out all the moments that cemented our love-hate relationship with the one and only Pete Campbell.
