If you cut all week, say 1500cal/day, but then one day during the week you spurge into a 5000-6000cal/day, what are the results. If it takes a week or so to lose a lb, can you add a pound in a day?

probably not , coz of your metabolism.

no you wont add the weight in 1 day, it takes your body about 2-4 days to convert the nutrients/calories into weight, I know that sounds kinda ******ed and I have nothing to back it up, but months and months of collecting my daily intake and weighing myself daily shows this trend quite clearly.

It's easier to understand if you focus on weekly caloric intake, not daily. In the specific example mentioned, you would still be in a caloric deficit for the week, so not only would you not gain weight, you would most likely continue to lose it.
