Best Harley Quinn quotes of all time. Including her quotes from blockbuster movies like 'Suicide Squad' and 'Birds Of Prey'.

Harley Quinn has almost the same personality as the clown prince, yet a lot of people love her.

As a sidekick of the Joker, people consider her one of the bad guys but we all know that the former Doctor has an awesome side. Harley Quinn quotes are widely sought after by movie lovers because they are like comics.

Is Harley Quinn a villain? Is she really crazy? Well, Harley Quinn is many things; A doctor, a gymnast with a crazy side, and a superhero who is slightly strange. She is loved for all of these things and many more - especially what she says which are the Harley Quinn quotes.

You must be wondering who is Harley Quinn and what is her story? Why are her quotes loved by the whole world? Here is the answer:

Harley Quinn is a character in DC comics (American comic books), just like Batman, Superman, and Joker. She was created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini and came into the movie scene in 1992 as an animated comic character featuring in the Batman series.

Her story has evolved but it begins with her as a psychiatrist in Arkham Asylum known as Dr Harleen Quinzel. She was devoted to her work as a psychiatrist with a doctorate and a very bright future ahead.

In the course of her work, she was assigned to the Joker but fell in love with him. He convinced her to help him escape from the prison and she did.

As a result of her involvement in the Joker's escape, Dr Harleen was dismissed from her work and her license to practice was revoked. Her mad love for the Jester altered her life as a psychiatrist and she became Harley Quinn, the clown queen. She joined the clown prince in his vile pursuits and endeavors.

However, she had a toxic relationship with the Joker as he continuously abused her - verbally and emotionally. Harley Quinn indeed loves the Joker.

She fondly calls him Mr. J or Puddin and even tattooed his name as 'Harly + Puddin' on her thigh. Does Mr. J love her back?

It is obvious that Joker loved Harley Quinn but he is a psychopath hence he was assigned to a psychiatrist in the first place. He was toxic to her and so was their relationship. Once upon a time, the Joker pushed her into a chemical pool and she became just a doll.

The chemical bath bleached her skin making her hair blond with pink and blue tips. It is believed that it also affected her mentally, birthing the crazy side of Harley Quinn that we all know and love.

The poise of Dr. Harleen Quinzel became Harley Quinn because of Mr. J and for him. They wrecked quite the havoc as she toured with her Puddin while making cool statements that make up the Harley Quinn quotes.

In the course of Harley Quinn's abusive relationship with the Joker, she met Poison Ivy who saved her from dying after he tried to kill her. They both became friends and Harley broke up with Joker with her help.

Nevertheless, Harley Quinn betrayed Ivy and even reunited with the Joker before finally breaking off her relationship with him. Albeit, after the breakup, she did not return to being a Dr Harleen but joined the little leagues and continued as Harley Quinn.

People always wonder if Harley Quinn is really crazy. Well, she has two hyenas as pets. She laughs hysterically and wears very crazy-looking makeup. Also, she fights with a baton and dresses in revealing pants or skort and vests that are very colorful. If all this isn't crazy then what is?

In 2016, Warner bros produced the blockbuster movie 'Suicide Squad', with Harley Quinn as a main character.

Her character was modified into the Harley Quinn we all love when she appeared in 'Suicide Squad' as one of the super criminals meant to save the world. In 'Suicide Squad' the life of Harley Quinn took a different turn as she was added to a group of super criminals who are more than the little leagues.

Harley Quinn alongside others was imprisoned in a secret cell and sent out on a suicide mission to save the world from a witch from another planet.

The 'Suicide Squad' accomplished the mission but it was indeed not a walk in the park. Harley Quinn was as crazy as ever but found a friend in Death Shot.

He didn't kill her when he was asked to do so. In 2021, Warner Bros teamed up with other movie giants and released part two of 'Suicide Squad' with Harley Quinn to really put the fun.

It was a major blockbuster with some great Harley Quinn quotes. Just like the first 'Suicide Squad', Harley Quinn was imprisoned again alongside Rick Flag and others.

They were sent on a heroic but suicidal mission to save the world. Harley alongside the others went about it as she gave amazing Harley Quinn quotes.

Although at this point, Joker wasn't in the picture and Harley Quinn was heroic. It was another amazing Warner bros production and a lot of people are looking forward to a possible Suicide Squad three with lots of Harley Quinn quotes.

One of the teammates in 'Suicide Squad' called her 'Hey craziness' while giving her a fighting bat. She always has crazy ideas like blowing up a chemical plant to show that she has broken up with Joker for real.

Harley Quinn is definitely crazy and the bad guys know it. More so, she is absolutely awesome when she wants to be. One way to know if she is a wild card is through the Harley Quinn quotes.

Unlike most superheroes and villains, Harley Quinn has no superpower. She only has good combat skills from her years as a gymnast. She is also immune to poison because her former best friend injected her with an anti-poison vaccine a long time ago.
