* AsideGlance: Joker has at least three in this episode:
** First, when he finds Fake Harley, he turns to the audience as he names her as his new henchgirl.
** Again, when Perry from the IRS shows up, saying that the henchgirl position has been filled "quite nicely".
** When Ernie stops him from shooting Fake Harley when she annoys him one time too many, asking, "Who'd ever think I'd miss the real one?"



** Later on, when Joker (acutally Ernie disguised as him) invites Bruce Wayne to sit with him at his table in the Iceberg Lounge, Bruce says he's a bit apprehensive since the last time he and the Joker encountered each other, Joker threw him off a rooftop. This happened in the "[[Recap/SupermanTheAnimatedSeriesS2E16To18WorldsFinest World's Finest]]" crossover episode with ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.

** Also, this isn't the [[Recap/BatmanTheAnimatedSeriesE22JokersFavor first time]] that Harley's disguised herself as a police officer.



* OffscreenMomentofAwesome: Harley not only managed to escape Arkham, but also somehow disguise herself as a police officer well enough to fool the entire force so she could end up in the back of Joker's prison van to beat him up with a nightstick.



* SequelEpisode: A subtle example, as this episode follows up on the [[CutLexLuthorACheck money problems]] the Joker briefly mentioned having in the ''[[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Superman]]'' crossover episode "[[Recap/SupermanTheAnimatedSeriesS2E16To18WorldsFinest World's Finest]]."

" And it's indicated by Bruce that the events of this episode occur at least a month after the above crossover.

Added DiffLines:

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: Joker hits this when taking a closer look at the money Barlow willed him, and sees a different face on the bills; "It's just a plain old pack of hundreds. See? There's Ben Franklin's cute, chubby little- Wait. ''King Barlow!?'' He's on ''this'' stack! And ''this'' one!"

Added DiffLines:

* AccidentalMisnaming: Fake Harley calls Joker "Mr. G".


Arriving at his apartment, Joker is shown to have money problems, including being late with the rent. He gets the news that he inherited millions from recently deceased mob boss King Barlowe, much to his excitement. He begins living large, tossing money left and right, even hiring a replacement Harley (with the real Harley getting even ''more'' enraged when she hears about it stuck in Arkham).

*** The "World's Finest" crossover is also where it's established that the Joker is strapped for cash. We see how broke he is in this episode: running out of ammunition during a robbery, no more acid in his squirting flower, behind on rent in a sleazy, rundown apartment, and not even able to put gas in his getaway car.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationExpansion: In the comics, the characters who are upset over not inheriting any money from Barlowe do nothing about it but verbally express contempt over the late one's enemy getting everything. In the cartoon, one of these characters tries to ''kill'' the Joker.


* AnnoyingLaugh: Fake Harley.

* AnnoyingLaugh: Fake Harley. After a while, the Joker has to be restrained from shooting her.



* BillBillJunkBill: Joker plays out this trope looking for a replacement for Harley Quinn. He takes a ''long'' pause on a large, fat man before dismissing him. Then after he makes his choice, he promptly muses if he should have gone with the fat guy. Even funnier when you realize the guy was an [[InkSuitActor animated caricature]] of Harley Quinn creator Creator/PaulDini.

The episode begins with Franchise/{{Batman}} chasing ComicBook/TheJoker in an electronics fair. During the chase, Joker and Harley Quinn have difficulties like running out of bullets and their car not having any gas. As soon as Batman and Batgirl catches up to them, Joker made an escape with the ''only'' [[EjectionSeat parachute]]. This outrages Harley as she gets sent to Arkham.
