If you cauliflower by any other name, does it smell as sweet?

I have a houseplant that I love, but I have no idea what it is. It's a hearty, lovely little guy, and contrary to the post's title doesn't ever flower. I want more of it! Or at least want to know what it is. Gallery of images on imgur. Thank you, internet heroes!

Could it be a small rubber tree?

That's what it looks like to me, but couldn't swear to it.

The rubber tree suggestion led me to the otherwise unrelated "baby rubber tree", aka peperomia obtusifolia, which I think is my little guy! Wee. Thanks botanists of MeFi!

Peperomia! (he said, arriving late to the party)

They're very easy to propagate, should you want more of those little guys around.
