Dinner party for five strangers

My theory on the number of strangers needed to have a wonderful time seated at a round table:

Two people can have a wonderful conversation. So can three.

One person can get stuck in a conversation of two for a while.
One person can leave a conversation of three.
One person can join a conversation of two to become three.

For that flow of conversation, you need just five people.
