"I can't believe I have to explain that I was doing my job to a man who just pulled his pants up on the world" -- Pete Campbell

Five seasons in, we know this much about Pete Campbell: He's entitled, he's never happy, he can verge on super-creepy and he lives for impressing Don.

And he has always deserved a good punch. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Lane Pryce for finally doing the deed.

I can't remember the last time we had such a Pete-centric episode (maybe when his father died? Still, it wasn't the focus). And here we had one where the writers managed to fill us with contempt for Pete but also feel sorry him. Vincent Kartheiser...
