"The Odd Couple" is the twenty-third webisode of Season 2 of the DC Super Hero Girls webseries, and it's the thirty-sixth webisode overall. It premiered on December 15, 2016.
One night on top of a building in Metropolis, Harley Quinn exclaims that she and Lady Shiva are partners in an Advance Stake-Out class project, surprised at the thought while playing with her giant mallet. While Lady Shiva looks out for their target via some binoculars, she annoyingly that Principal Waller clearly came up with the idea of pairing the two together, before going back to her binoculars.
Shiva asks Harley, whether she's seen any sign of Cheshire yet, but Harley says she hasn't, stating that Cheshire's a deadly assassin and that she's probably out deadly assassinating. Shiva tries to get Harley to stop joking around, in fear she'll give away their location, just as Harley hooks her mallet underneath Shiva's binoculars, taking them from her. Harley asks why Shiva takes everything so seriously, with Shiva replying that "this is a serious assignment".
Harley then looks through the binoculars at Shiva, stating she's so serious, that she bets that she doesn't even know a single joke, with Shiva turning around and angrily looking up the binoculars at Harley. Harley then takes her binoculars away from Shiva's eye-line, playing "Eye Spy With My Little Eye", before seeing Cheshire jumps down in front of her. Shiva then turns around, saying that what Harley's saying is not funny, but realizes Cheshire really is there. Both Shiva and Harley jump back onto the roof edge, as Cheshire extends her sharp fingernails, believing Harley to be hilarious.
Cheshire tries to take a swipe at the two, as they immediately jump out of the way, jumping off the roof, with Shiva managing to grab hold of a pole and swinging off of it, as Harley falls right through the roof of a fruit stand, falling and smashing a crate of oranges. The girls then head off after Cheshire, climbing and jumping up the stairs. However when they arrive on top of the roof, they find no-one there. While creeping across the roof, Harley jokes that she and Cheshire should join up for a variety show, complimenting Cheshire on her disappearing act. Shiva then hushes Harley, furiously stating Harley that she doesn't want to fail because of Harley's complete lack of focus.
Hurt, Harley clarifies that wouldn't have to entertain herself had Shiva just told a joke. An irritated Shiva gives in and begins telling Harley a Knock-Knock joke, with Harley saying who's there. Just then, Cheshire appears behind Harley, causing Shiva to exclaim Harley to duck, as she delivers a powerful blow to Cheshire. Harley laughs at the sight of Cheshire's knockout, saying she thinks Cheshire got the joke. Cheshire is then arrested, as Harley compliments Shiva's comedic ability, saying that she's great with a "punchline". Shiva giggles, but asks Harley to not tell anyone.
