Harley pressed one eye shut and stuck out her tongue in mock thought. "Mmm... I'm in the mood for some other girl scout in a mask and cape tonight..."
The transformed Zatanna snapped to a salute, back rigid. "Aye-aye, boss-ma'am! What flavor?"
"Surprise me," Harley smiled, reaching over to pinch Zatanna's cheek. "An' one other thing: get her in thirty minutes or less, an' you're gonna get a big raise!"

"I didn't order any-"
And that was her cue. Quick as a cobra, the former heroine reached over and popped the lid open. A large cloud of purple gas enveloped her quarry's head entirely.
The poor sucker didn't have a chance. She was out like a light in seconds.
