After all this time–all these years–you and I have history. I know what you think of me. You think I’m just a doll. A doll that’s pink and light. A doll you can arrange any way you like.

Intensifying the psychotic passion between these two is the fact that Harley is not just The Joker’s girlfriend, henchwoman or arm candy. Far from it, the two are equals. Speaking to Screen Rant, Costume Designer Kate Hawley analysed the relationship in the following way –
‘There’s this obsession and this relationship [between Harley and Joker] that… it’s almost like two alpha males, you know? You never feel Harley’s done under in a way, it’s been beautifully interpreted by David in her dialogue, that she’s such an amazing, strong character and they’re like two alpha males. They go out and the games they play with their victims, it’s like cat and mouse.’
