McConnell can force a quorum with a quorum call. If they don't come he can send marshals (I think marshals) to round them up and physically carry them to the senate chamber if they have to.

I can't imagine any senator going into hiding for any length of time. Can't miss those fundraiser cocktail parties. Hardship is not something any of that lot would abide for more than a few hours.
