Author's Note: This scene occurred to me while writing Of White Coats and Straightjackets. Both fics operate on the premise that Harley worked with another theme criminal before Joker, but Truth wouldn't fit in there for various reasons. Hope it's fun. :-)

"Your lipstick is smeared," Jonathan observed.

"So is yours."
