Title text: Except the people filtering in late are the partiers, so you end up with drunken makeouts in the living room and the next roommate to return home has to sleep in the hall lounge orbital.
This is a pun on the Pauli exclusion principle, which states that no two identical fermions (such as electrons) can be in the same place at the same time. In this case, the roommates and their guests are the electrons, which also means that only two people can be in any one room, or orbital. An orbital describes the probability of finding an electron in a given space.

- Cueball: Thus, once all the dorm bedrooms are occupied by romantic pairs, additional roommates are forced into less restful "living room couch" orbitals.
