"Love Hurts" is the thirty-three episode of Season two from The Penguins of Madagascar.



After Private is scratched and bruised when a mission goes awry, the other penguins leave him at the veterinary office. There, Private soon becomes smitten with Shawna, a new intern who tends to Private's injuries. Once fixed up, Private ponders the thought of getting injured again in order to see Shawna again, and intentionally does so when the initial mission is given another go. Private repeats this strategy until the others become suspect of his string of bad luck, eventually confronting him while in Shawna's care. Suspecting the others of bullying Private and having "avian insanity fever," Shawna cages them and states that Private will never share a habitat with them again. Not wanting to lose his friends, however, Private feigns having the affliction in order for Shawna to treat him as she would the rest.
