"Mad Love" is the series finale of The New Batman Adventures, and aired on January 11, 1999. It provides the back story of Harley Quinn, the Joker's girlfriend, and was based on the comic book of the same name, also by Paul Dini.
Commissioner Gordon goes in for a dental appointment, only to find the Joker in the place of his dentist. Harley Quinn ties him to the chair, and just as Joker is about to kill the Commissioner, Batman crashes in and saves Gordon, right after Joker and Harley escape.
In the Funnibones warehouse, the Joker is busy trying to come up with a plan to kill Batman, but Harley is looking for an assignation. The Joker spurns her sexual advances, though, because he's obsessed with getting back at Batman. He stumbles upon "The Death of A Thousand Smiles" — a plan that consisted of plopping Batman in a piranha tank — but he soon remembers that he had dropped it earlier because he was unable to get a smile out of the fish. Harley resumes her advances, so the Joker kicks her out. Outside with Bud and Lou, Harley bemoans about her life and asks herself how it came to that point. She concluded that Batman was to blame from the very beginning and starts reminiscing about her past. (Read more...)
