They were both thrown into a padded cell.

After Ed gotten the entire asylum to breaking out into song and dance while Dexter knocked 2 security guards, they escaped with the help of both Heather and the Huge Scary Man. They steal an ice cream truck, but are pursued by a Demented Hills van which crashed into Mr. Wheat's new mailbox. The three succeeded in saving Good Burger with Ed tackling an elderly customer from eating her poisoned burger before both Ed and Dexter goes to take down Kurt Bozwell for good.
