The Joker planned to unleash his Killer Hot Sauce on the Gotham City Barbecue Festival and poison everyone in attendance. Late Thursday evening, Joker's Ha-Ha Hideout, a warehouse on the outskirts of Gotham, was invaded by Batman and Nightwing. Harley Quinn was amused with Nightwing's quip about Joker not having any taste. She handed Joker his pie bazooka but it blew up in his face. He reckoned that was the last time he was ordering anything from Acme. Joker ran upstairs to the Mecha-Joker and ordered Harley to activate it. There were sparks and Joker couldn't control his robot. It started slipping on the hot sauce. Batman invoked maneuver #314 after he realized the henchmen were in the Mecha-Joker's path. Joker headed to the roof for his hot-air balloon. He noticed it drifted to the end of its tether and he couldn't climb up then saw a sign that revealed Joker's location. Harly admitted to it, plugging up the bazooka, and spilling papaya smoothie all over the Mecha-Joker's controls because she hated Batman was getting all of Joker's attention. Joker recalled his experimental rocket hat but Batman punched him out.
Harley couldn't believe Joker wasn't even mad at her and only threatened revenge on Batman. She kicked him in the crotch and declared she was going solo. Poison Ivy arrived to rescue Harley from Joker but was fine with taking on Batman and the police instead. Ivy and Harley were carried off by the arboreal network while Batman and Nightwing tried to get free of the vines. The next morning, Harley woke up in Ivy's hothouse hideout and met her henchman Doug. Instead of agreeing to go out on a romp, Ivy revealed her plan to protect the Fatshedera Lizei vine from Wayne Enterprises' development of the banks of the Newton River for a hotel complex. She needed money to buy more equipment and hire more operatives. Harley thought her idea to rob a bank would only bring trouble her way. Doug suggested targeting people who wouldn't go to the police like Penguin or Black Mask. Harley recalled Catwoman was out of town. Batman had a hunch Harley would try and finish the Joker's interrupted plans for the festival as payback.
Instead, Condiment King was robbing people at the Gotham City Barbecue Festival. Batman tackled him into the salad bar as his pineapple grenade blew up a bull statue. Nightwing had enough and hit him with an uppercut. Condiment King persisted with a Worcester sauce pun and got back handed. Nightwing believed Harley was used to being junior partner and was going along with Ivy's plan. Harley took her Whoopee Glider up to Catwoman's penthouse and opened her wall safe with a combination consisting of Catwoman's birthday. Harley prepared to raid her jewelry collection but Catwoman caught her red handed. They got into a scrap until Batman and Nightwing arrived. Harley made her escape on the glider. Catwoman wouldn't reveal what Harley had in her bag. Harley returned to the hothouse and interrupted a conversation between Ivy and Floronic Man, incongito, about doing something more meaningful. Rather than celebrating, Ivy told Harley to immediately fence the stolen jewels. She took Doug along.
Nightwing had a hard time understanding why Batman was so keen on capturing Harley but stopped to take down some thieves. They dropped the thieves off at the ninth precinct on the way home then retired to the Batcave to figure out Harley's next move. Doug took Harley with him to Monday night poker at the back of the Iceberg Lounge to spend their cuts. Murphy didn't appreciate him bringing Harley. Doug assured him she was cool. Murphy advised her to behave and Doug was responsible for her. The others recognized Harley as Joker's doll but she corrected them she wasn't anymore and added she kicked him so hard in the crotch he was still sitting down to pee a week later. Rhino congratulated her and asked who she was henching for. Doug answered Poison Ivy for her. Harley became upset they thought she was Ivy's henchman. Someone noted they all thought she was the queen of the henchmen. She only got angrier. Doug told her to calm down. Harley kicked the table and proclaimed she was "Harley Freaking Quinn." A fight broke out and Doug was blamed.
Doug made his way back to his apartment bruised only to find Batman and Nightwing waiting. Batman noticed his left eye was swollen shut. Doug lied and said he walked into a door. Nightwing pointed out everyone talked and no one tried to protect him. He asked about Harley. Doug jumped out a window and ran off, unaware Batman slipped a tracer on him. Floronic Man taught Ivy how to control wild plants but she regretted letting him return. Harley finally returned and asked Ivy to confirm they were partners. She did. Harley wanted to do something she wanted for once but Ivy wasn't too interested in filling City Hall with jelly beans. Harley realized she was in the passenger seat of every relationship she got into. Ivy insisted she was the only one of them she cared about. Harley was troubled Ivy didn't identify as a human, too, and ran off. She bumped into Doug, who was sure he lost Batman and Nightwing on Novick Street. They were perched atop a gargoyle and noted he stopped half a mile away. Batman wanted them to wait one more minute to be sure but Harley suddenly called out to them and led them right into the hothouse so Ivy could get the help she needed.
Ivy sent her plants after them but was angered at them slashing and burning them up. She threatened to snap Nightwing's neck but Harley tackled her. She told Ivy to her face she was losing her humanity more and more each day and was afraid she going to do something crazy she couldn't come back from. Ivy wasn't having it and hated her need for human chaos. Harley didn't know what else to do and cried. Ivy vowed that was tears wouldn't save her life ever again then she rode away on a giant vine. Harley turned herself over to Batman and Nightwing and found it funny that was the only relationship she could count on. Before Harley could ask, Batman promised he would get Ivy some help once she was caught. One year later, Harley was declared legally sane and was released. She set off to live a normal life and put her past behind her. Months later, she stopping reporting in to her parole officer and began squatting in a condemned apartment building. Harley Quinn tried to go straight but had a difficult time finding a job that utilized her psychiatric training since she was a former costumed supervillain. She ended up as a waitress at a Gotham City Superbabes. She endured a lot of sexual harassment over a period of three months.
Floronic Man and Poison Ivy infiltrated the Gotham City branch of S.T.A.R. Labs but the former tripped the alarm. Floronic Man engaged the security guards while Poison Ivy quickly tried to locate files on Dr. Alec Holland's Bio-Restorative Formula. The guards' bullets did little against Floronic Man's regenerative abilities. He shoved and threw them around like rag dolls, and killed at least one. One guard was nearly thrown at Ivy. She knocked him out with a stapler and continued searching. The formula was discovered. She downloaded the classified level 12 file to her thumb drive. The Gotham City Police Department, Batman, and Nightwing investigated the scene of the crime while paramedics treated the surviving guards. The project supervisor confirmed nothing was physically stolen. Batman already deduced it since there was no effort to minimize collateral. The CSI unit took photographs. A guard bandaged another guard's heard. Nightwing checked the computer Ivy used.
The supervisor didn't believe Ivy could have accessed S.T.A.R. Labs' secure date but Nightwing found the file they copied. The supervisor became concerned. Nightwing knew the name "Holland" was familiar but couldn't place it. Batman typed and talked about Holland's project to turn deserts into forests as a video of his demise was played. A guard mistook Swamp Thing for Floronic Man. Batman replayed the security footage and identified him. Nightwing wasn't thrilled with the team up. Batman excused them and they went outside to outline their two immediate objectives, figure out Ivy and Floronic Man's plan and find their location. Batman knew what "tree" to shake to get more information about a kidnapped man named Harold Goldblum. He went to the Gotham branch of A.R.G.U.S. and met with Sarge Steel. He inquired about Goldblum. Steel's prosthetic hand malfunctioned and smashed his coffee mug. He yelled for Henderson then asked Batman how he even knew about Goldblum's kidnapping.
Batman hinted he had eyes and ears everywhere. Steel reminded him hacking the A.R.G.U.S. computers was a federal crime. Batman started listing Goldblum's resume, while Henderson cleaned up, then asked what he was working on. Steel stated that was classified and his hands were tied. Batman keyed on how he put it and recalled a fringe hacker group recently accessed information about key A.R.G.U.S. employees and some of them seemed to be engaged in "questionable nocturnal activities." Steel was aghast at being blackmailed. Batman stated he was explaining that he could help stop a crime in exchange for some information. Steel stated for the record that what Mistress Ilsa did for him was considered therapy in some countries then handed Batman Goldblum's dossier. He admitted it was an odd case because there was nothing, no ransom demands or political requests. He speculated Goldblum was killed or kept alive for reasons unknown. Batman asked if there were any leads. Steel admitted the investigation hit a dead end but pointed out Goldblum's field of expertise was man-made pandemic terrorist attacks and that he was the world's leading expert on the subject. Steel admitted a part of him hoped Goldblum's kidnappers killed him.
After failing to get any leads on Harley Quinn's location from people around the city, Nightwing happened to pass by a Superbabes as he thought about getting a Reuben with extra kraut. He peeked inside and saw wait staff dressed like Power Girl, Catwoman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Big Barda, Vixen, Fire, Ice, Starfire, and Harley Quinn. The Harley waitress brought the orders to four men in a booth. One of the men reached under her skirt despite Harley's warning. She threw him to the floor and broke his arm. She turned the rest of the men and asked if there was anything else she could do for them. They all declined. The man complained to Chick, the proprietor. He continued stirring a pot and gestured to the Wonder Woman-themed warning sign "Look all you want but don't touch the girls." Nightwing was convinced the waitress was Harley Quinn. Harley ate some Hawkgirl Spicy Hot Wings after her shift then walked home. Nightwing tailed her but she was onto him.
Before she entered the apartment building, Quinzel called out to Nightwing to come out of hiding. He dropped down onto scaffolding. Harley revealed she got good ears from being incarcerated at Arkham Asylum. She didn't want anything to do with the "costume crowd" anymore and refused to answer his questions. Nightwing pointed out she wasn't using her psychiatric training to make a decent living and failed to report to her parole officer for months. She heard enough and kicked him. They fought in an alley. Nightwing failed to notice he was tagged with low-grade Joker Venom. He fell to the ground and was knocked out. Batman and Sarge Steel entered Goldblum's apartment. Steel was skeptical he would find anything since his team went over it a dozen times already. Batman looked at the leaves on the floor near a pot and picked one out. Steel didn't follow until Batman alluded to it being from Floronic Man.
Nightwing came to and found himself tied to a bed. Quinzel paced around, talking to herself, and tried to figure out her next move since he found out her secret location but she wasn't a criminal anymore. Nightwing thought otherwise. She called him "Nightwig" again, prompting him to finally correct her. She was surprised and recalled the mullet he used to have. Nightwing wasn't phased by the insults and quipped he took trash talk from bigger criminals. Quinzel didn't appreciate being called a criminal and stated she went straight. Nightwing was sarcastic. She showed him the stack of rejection letters and pornography offers. She was tired of being told what she was then noticed her dirty uniform. She stripped down to her underwear and looked through her closet. She recalled he used to be Robin but was all grown up and got an idea. She turned off the lights and crawled on top of him. She admitted she always kind of thought he and Batman were homosexual. Nightwing was confused. She remembered she had to write a paper on "Seduction of the Innocent" in college and got a B minus.
Quinzel admitted it was pretty lonely. Nightwing tried to reason with her but she made her decision. Nightwing couldn't believe the things he did for Gotham City. She took that as a "yes" and they fooled around for 20 minutes. Elsewhere, Floronic Man found Ivy's method of mind control through kissing disgusting and suggested torture. Ivy objected to it and they got into it about what "humane" meant. Batman became concerned and followed the signal from Nightwing's tracer. He heard Quinzel laughing and prepared to kick the door in but Nightwing started laughing, too. He opened the door and saw them tickling each other. Quinzel, now dressed as Harley Quinn stood at attention. Batman noticed her underwear and dirty uniform on the floor as well as broken restraints on the bed. Harley went to the Batmobile. Batman asked Nightwing if he got what he needed. Nightwing grumbled it wasn't like he never made out with a supervillain. Harley attempted to bargain her help for a promise to let her to try and talk down Ivy first and help with the parole board.
Batman refused to make deal with a psychopath. Harley was annoyed and stated the correct term was sociopath. She didn't take kindly to Nightwing trying to show her how to get into the Batmobile. Batman deduced Ivy and Floronic Man were going to convert the formula that turned Holland into Swamp Thing into a fast-acting virus then save humanity by turning it into animal/plant hybirds but was more alarmed that if the virus was mis-prepared, it would simply kill everyone on the planet. Harley believed the best way to find Ivy was through Doug, or Shrubby, but she got distracted after she spotted a high school flame named Bobby Liebowitz and chased him through the streets and across rooftops for standing her up at senior prom 10 years ago. Batman warned her he wouldn't hesitate to dump her at a police station if she pulled another stupid stunt like that again and reminded her they weren't playing a game. Harley was offended and reminded him she was the answer to his prayers. She directed him to take the Donnenfeld Expressway to Bludhaven.
Batman looked at Nightwing, who shrugged. Batman turned right and took the Expressway. At some point after the 15 mile marker to Bludhaven, Harley Quinn had stomach problems from the Hawkgirl Spicy Wings she ate at Superbabes but Batman didn't pull over. She farted. Nightwing was overcome but Batman refused to cave in. She farted again. Nightwing begged him. Batman finally pulled over to a Gotham Gas station. Harley strutted to the restroom. Nightwing offered Batman ten dollars to floor it and not look back. They stopped at a dive bar. Harley assured them it looked like and was a total dump but claimed all the cool hench-people hung out there. A who's who of henchmen were inside. Catwoman's henchmen, Ubu, Captain Clown, Enrique El Gancho, Randa Duane, Maven, Riddler's henchmen, Ratso, Nitro, Emmylou Brown, Germs, Calendar Girl's henchmen, Rhino, Min and Max, Jay and Lark, Lily and Violet, an Ice Maiden, Larry, Mo, and Curl, Rocco and Henshaw, and Snap and Numbers.
Nightwing became uneasy and likened it to nightmares he has. He wasn't sure they were welcome. Harley downplayed the stares and advised to look less like they had a stick up their asses. Min and Max were on the stage singing "Don't Pull Your Love" when Harley sighted Shrubby on the dance floor. She swung her butt and knocked the Ice Maiden away from Shrubby and made small talk. Catwoman's henchmen ordered a glass of milk for Batman as a prank and snickered. Harley walked to Batman and Nightwing and informed them she had to do something for Shrubby or there was no deal. Harley took the stage and sang Blondie's "Hanging on the Telephone." Even Batman tapped to her singing then stopped when Nightwing noticed. One of Catwoman's henchmen mocked Batman with the Batusi dance and was backhanded. The other henchman was about to act but Rhino stopped him. Nightwing took to dancing with a woman. Once Harley was finished, Shrubby wrote the location of Ivy's hideout on a matchbook. She thanked him and kissed him on the cheek.
Before the trio could leave, the henchmen blocked the exit. Rhino vowed the only way he would leave was in a body bag. Batman drank all of the milk at once, tossed his Utility Belt on the floor and readied himself for a fight. Everyone was in a good mood on the drive back to Gotham until Booster Gold hailed the Batmobile. He informed Batman that most of the Justice League's heavy hitters were either off-planet dealing with something near Rigel or in Atlantis at Aquaman's christening ceremony. He looked at the stand-by team and suggested Black Condor, Elongated Man, Triumph, and Bloodwynd. Nightwing gestured to Batman not to take any of them. Batman tried to end the converstation but Booster suggested he come down and B'Wana Beast would cover him. Nightwing grabbed a wrapper and crumpled it. Batman made up a story about driving under high-tension wires but Booster knew that was paper. Batman ended the call.
Goldblum substituted water from the Weinwright Swamp of Louisiana with that of Slaughter Swamp near Gotham City. He experimented on white lab mice. After injecting one, the mouse turned green and mutated leaf-like features on its back. Floronic Man was elated the mouse was stable. Ivy exclaimed how beautiful it was and scooped it up in her palms. Floronic Man proclaimed it was the harbinger of the new age. Before he could finish, the mouse imploded and liquefied. Goldblum recorded it as "subject response negative." Floronic Man accused him of faking and not even trying. Ivy reiterated Goldblum was still under her control and told him to explain what went wrong. Goldblum started off saying the formula was a complex azeotrope and while the virus conversion of the formula worked perfectly on paper, there were literally millions of variables that could have corrupted the process. Floronic Man implored him to take a guess. Goldblum believed it was the swamp water. Floronic Man warmed up to the idea of unleashing the virus at Weinwright Swamp since the Gulf Stream Currents would carry the virus into the Greater Atlantic Ocean.
Batman, Nightwing, and Harley dropped in through the skylight. Harley tried to talk to Ivy but she was adamant there was no other way. Batman threw a flash bomb and the fight began. Tables, beakers, and shelves were overturned. After Floronic Man swatted two Batarangs away, an electrical spark started a fire. Floronic Man stuffed a laptop and papers into a duffel bag. Goldblum came to and was stabbed in the heart by Floronic Man. He and Ivy fled then the ceiling collapsed and an explosion was triggered. Batman emerged from the rubble first then helped Nightwing push a cabinet off of him. They found Harley trying to console Goldblum. Batman advised Nightwing not to pull the debris out of him and injected Goldblum with something. Goldblum tried to tell them about the swamp water in Louisiana needed to complete the process. Harley told him to look up her grandmother Fran Quinzel when he got to Heaven. Near the 10 mile marker outside of Gotham, Ivy and Floronic Man hid among some trees and observed a roadblock by the Main Street exit.
To circumvent detection at police roadblocks, airports, or train stations, Floronic Man decided to use the last tuber he took off Swamp Thing's corpse a few years ago with Poison Ivy. She was revolted by the taste but soon felt its effects, observing a yellow aura around the trees. Floronic Man instructed her to take his hand then he touched one of the trees. She began to trip out but Floronic Man told her to relax, concentrate on their destination, and become one with the Green, an elemental force which connects all forms of plant life on Earth. They vanished into the tree. Floronic Man quickly reached for his duffel bag. They were teleported from Gotham City to Weinwright Swamp in Louisiana. Firefighters doused the building fire remnants while Harley and Nightwing recuperated in an ambulance and Batman apprised Sarge Steel of the situation. Harley apologized about getting Nightwing's codename wrong all the time and likened it to not being sure when to use "their" or "they're." Batman informed them about police helping set up checkpoints and Steel calling in the FBI and National Guard. Batman remotely summoned the Batwing jet plane to get there was quickly as possible. He programmed the GPS coordinates of Alec Holland's old lab into the Batwing then tried to part ways with Harley. Harley convinced Batman to take her along but she neglected to tell him she got airsick sometimes until right before she threw up.
Two days after the Weinwright Swamp battle, Poison Ivy received steak dinner from a new orderly named Ken. Ken honored her request and came back with chocolate pudding, a geranium, and a phildendron. Ivy manipulated the geranium and it sprayed Ken, paralyzing him in place. A vine swiped Ken's card and Ivy was free but Batman was waiting. Batman instructed Ken to never bring a plant in the same wing as Ivy and never tell her what other plants were in the building then ordered him to go to the medical center. Ivy was suprised she wasn't back in her cell. Batman revealed they were taking a walk first. As they passed Two-Face and Scarecrow, Batman stated she should be kept somewhere else but Arkham was the only facility around that was equipped to hold powerful people. Ivy thought he was kidding and stated Arkham was where all the freaks. Killer Croc saw Batman and became irate. Batman wondered if she was striking back at everyone through all the pain she felt or if she was like Clayface and wasn't even sure who she was anymore.
Ivy deduced his point was she wasn't as bad as some of the others. She suggested she just wasn't committed enough or genuises can't relate to other people. Batman responded with a "maybe" but added maybe she lost the thing that connected her to everyone else. Riddler tried to issue a riddle but Batman told him to shut up. Batman suggested the roof. Ivy found it nice and was surprised Batman was thinking of requesting her cell to be moved up there. Batman amused her with saying prisons keep people around those who make good choices. Ivy retorted she only hung out with Harley Quinn. Batman didn't think she was the worst friend to have, who was making an effort to go straight. Ivy appreciated he was trying to show he cared in his own weird way and knew she didn't make the world a better place but only cared about the most effective path to saving it. She then pointed out how hard a time Harley had with being hired and even recalled she just tried to break out.
Batman pointed out they on the roof, there were no guards, and the walls were covered with tons of ivy. At any point she could have crushed or strangled him. He stated change was hard but she was good at doing hard things. Ivy conceded and promised to give it more serious thought. Batman revealed he would look into the possibility of a work release option that kept her out of Arkham but added she to do him a favor, don't tell Harley he said she wasn't the worst. They shook on it. Ivy found that a hard request but agreed to it.
Five days after the Weinwright Swamp battle, Batman and Nightwing captured Catwoman following a museum heist. Nightwing saw Superbabes across the street. Batman noticed he was quiet. Nightwing felt a little hungry and went into Superbabes alone. The wait staff on duty were dressed as Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and Hawkgirl. He mistook the Harley waitress for Harley but she didn't talk like her at all or use the word puddin' like she did. Nightwing was still disenchanted and decided to leave. The Harley waitress looked at his butt as he left. Nightwing returned to the Batcave in the evening after failing to locate Harley Quinn. Alfred Pennyworth greeted him first. Pennyworth noticed something was wrong and inquired. Nightwing claimed it was nothing and tried to ask Bruce Wayne something but was cut off with a "no." Nightwing tried to ask if he could take the Batmobile out but Wayne cut him off again with another "no."
Nightwing took Alfred Pennyworth with him to the bar to blow off a bit of steam. When they entered, Two-Face was singing. Nightwing tried to ask Shrubby where Harley was but he had no reason to play nice. Catwoman's henchmen recognized him. A fight broke out. The bartender readied a shattered bottle but was kicked in the face by Nightwing. He leaped over the bar and drank. Batman arrived, took in the carnage, and stated he should have known better. Nightwing assured him it was taken care of. Batman asked where Pennyworth was so they could leave. Batman realized Pennyworth was singing and stated they would leave after he was done. Nightwing suggested he sing "Ain't No Sunshine" next. Batman realized he lied about not hearing anything when he was in the shower. Nightwing felt better.
Six days after the Weinwright Swamp battle, Mark Desmond ordered two shots of Espresso in the Bowery but the barista got it wrong and he was triggered. Desmond transformed into Blockbuster and went on a rampage, wrecking anything in sight. Batman found Blockbuster and moved him away from civilians by ramming him with the Batmobile. He confirmed with Alfred Pennyworth to meet up. Blockbuster tried picking up the Batmobile but Batman fired the thrusters in his face. He threw a dumpster at it. To make matters worse, Pennyworth had to contend with traffic coming out of the Bowery. Batman clamped Blockbuster's right leg but he pulled on the cable. It snapped and he fell into the river. Pennyworth arrived and dropped off a serum. Batman gave him an important letter to mail. Blockbuster jumped to the side of a building. Batman glided after him but their conflict spilled into a room and they scared a boy and a girl. Batman double kicked Blockbuster in the chest and he crashed into pavement. Batman quickly sprayed the serum into his mouth. The compound was suppressed and he returned to normal.
Harley Quinn went to the Gotham Zoo to visit Bud and Lou at the hyena exhibit. Harley went into the pen and sat with them. She apologized for them ending up there when she was at Arkham Asylum and realized they were being fed well but have to live in a cage, too. She presented one of the gems she stole from Catwoman's private collection and vowed to buy their freedom then hugged them. A police officer was alerted about Harley. The officer ordered her out and already had his fill of nutjobs running around the park. He tried to arrest her but she jumped out of the pen and took off. She was annoyed he chased after her and jumped off a bridge and hid. She ran into Killer Croc. Croc recognized her and remembered she broke out of Arkham Asylum. Harley clarified she was released legal and proper. Croc was surprised and asked for her help. Harley didn't think she could on account of him being a murderer. Croc claimed he was sort of paroled in a work program for the government but he didn't want to do it anymore. The problem was his blood was filled with nanite technology.
Harley thought the goverment was performing mind control experiments on him and wanted to go to Galaxy Broadcasting and expose the truth. Task Force X found them and demanded Croc to come with them. Harley pretended to be a hostage and drop kicked Captain Boomerang. Colonel Flag ordered Deadshot to capture Croc without killing him after he woke up Boomerang. Croc hid in a grove of trees but Deadshot shot a branch. It fell and knocked Croc out. Harley arrived and checked his pulse. Flag shot a tranquilizer dart into her neck. Boomerang realized she was Harley Quinn. They speculated why Harley was meeting with Croc when Boomerang discovered the gem in her handbag. Harley came to and kicked him in the crotch. Flag was at a loss for the reason she was standing. Harley explained she had an immunity after years of being exposed to toxins and potions. Boomerang gave chase and refused to use non-lethal means. Croc grabbed Flag's arm and destroyed the device used to trigger the nanites. Boomerang realized Harley led him into the hyena pen and was attacked.
Croc crushed Flag's rifle and explained he needed time off to be an animal or he would go crazy. Flag countered that wasn't how the task force worked and they all had to follow orders, even him. Harley caught up to them and Deadshot shot her handbag. She kicked him in the face and realized the gem was shattered to pieces. Harley was annoyed and declared she had to stop trying to do the right thing. Flag told her to step aside but was back handed. Harley tried to take Croc with her but he resisted. They were surrounded by a tactical team. Amanda Waller addressed them and ordered Croc into a van. She realized Croc was lying about the mind control experiments and kicked him in the crotch. Waller invited her to join Task Force X and take care of the problems the Justice League was too squeamish about. Harley declined. Waller believed she revert to a criminal and would have her anyway. Harley declined again and stated she learned a lesson, to stop listening when someone told her they needed her help. She picked up her handbag and walked away.
10 days after the Weinwright Swamp battle, Quinzel forged a recommendation letter from Nightwing and mailed it to the Gotham Medical Center. She looked at her wardrobe, lit it on fire, and went shopping for new clothes just as the new fall looks came in. She bumped into an attorney and admired her red and black attire. She declared her a personal stylist and asked to help replicate her look. The attorney opted to just give Harley her clothes. Harley burst into a boutique and quoted "Pretty Woman," sensing it was her chance. A sales person crossed the "3" off the "Number of Weeks Since a Customer Pretended to be Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman." Harley Quinn tried to apply at the Aioli Clinic at the Gotham Medical Center. She went to Doris at the front desk and threatened a potted plant for a job interview. She recalled Poison Ivy and threatened the computer instead. Doris calmly alerted Dr. Connor about Harley then told her to have a seat. Harley was surprised it worked.
Doris offered her water but she thought there was a catch. Dr. Connor introduced herself as the head of the Psych Department and shook Harley's hand. Harley was surprised she was expected. Connor explained they stayed aware of all promising applicants. Harley wanted to know what the catch was. Connor didn't understand. Harley decided to start the interview and talk about her qualifications but Connor said that wasn't necessary. Harley sensed a set up and busted the leg off a chair. Connor elaborated it wasn't necessary because she was hired. Harley pointed out her license expired and she wasn't a real doctor anymore. Connor explained they would find her something to do until she could get her license renewed, she would start Monday, and Doris would give you some paperwork on her way out. Harley asked why she was being hired. Connor revealed Bruce Wayne requested that they giver her a chance and he funded half the clinic. Harley was surprised Wayne even knew who she was.
