"The Three Babes" is the ninth episode of Gotham Girls.
Harley Quinn sits, bored, in a prison cell where Poison Ivy and Catwoman are both asleep. After failing to elicit a response from Catwoman, she bothers Poison Ivy for a story. She suggests "Jack and The Beanstalk", but Poison Ivy responds that she hates it. Harley then tries "Sleeping Beauty" and "Princess in The Pea", but Poison Ivy dislikes those stories as well. In the end, they go with "Goldilocks"... without, at Harley's request, any bears. So begins the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Babes".
Ivy tells the story of the "Three Babes" (herself, Harley and Catwoman) going on a walk to let their food cool while "Goldilocks" (Batgirl) invades their house. She discards Catwoman and Ivy's food in favor of Harley's, goes through a similar routine by sitting down in their chairs... and then Catwoman hurries her through the "bed" segment to the part where they catch her. Goldilocks tries to escape, but is dragged back and thoroughly beaten up by the Three Babes. She finally manages to flee the scene, and is never seen again.
Harley applauds the story, Catwoman is ambivalent, and Batgirl arrives at their cell to express her approval at "a happy ending".
When the Three Babes catch "Goldilocks", the viewer has the option to let Harley attack her with a seltzer bottle, a cream pie, or a boxing glove gun. This can continue for an indefinite length of time, as the viewer also gets to choose when to return to the movie.
- Poison Ivy's reaction to Sleeping Beauty having "apple abuse" is odd, as there are no apples to speak of in Sleeping Beauty. It is possible that she had it confused with Snow White, which also features a "sleeping beauty". However, Sleeping Beauty may have involved the "abuse" of briars.
- It is left unexplained why Catwoman, Harley and Ivy share a prison cell, which seems out of place because Harley and Ivy are usually incarcerated in Arkham Asylum.
- When Batgirl says Harley Quinn's food and chair are "just right", she says it in Harley's voice.
- While Batgirl welcomes Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn and Catwoman, we can see that his bat logo does not appear on her breast.

Poison Ivy: ...when who should break in but-
Batgirl: Ah... I love a happy ending, don't you? This one's just right.
