"nous serons quittés" or "nous serons quitté"?

Marie nous rejoindra ________ le restaurant.Marie will meet up with us when we've left the restaurant.(HINT: Use 'quitter')My answer is "quand nous serons quittés".
The key is "quand nous aurons quitté".
Why does the "quitté" not need to agree with the plural form of "nous" here?

Chris W.C1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

quitter  is a transitive verb (note the COD le restaurant) and therefore uses avoir as auxiliary verb. Nous is the subject (and not the COD) so you don't match quitté to it.

Marie nous rejoindra quand nous aurons quitté le restaurant.
