I'm doing an oil change and I knocked over my oil and lost about five quarts. What will happen if I use some of the drained oil until I can get to the store to buy more and replace it all again?

Not a good idea. It has contaminents in it and possble metal fragments. You would just be putting them back in the motor. I would get to the store by using some other vehicle, then buy the new oil and put it in.
