I can assure you that a DC-9 or MD-80 does not roll over in flight. At least it has never happened to me on any of my numerous flights on DC-9s. :) If they really did simply just roll over in flight, I'm sure it would have been deemed an unsafe and unpractical design far before thousands of them were sold. I think that any asymmetrical weight distribution that the 2-3 seating on an MD-80 might cause, is so minimal that it doesn't have really any kind of an effect.
