Well, no one got all the answers correct this week, and everyone stumbled on the same one, which sent me to the text to make sure I was correct. I think I am, but we can argue about it, if you'd like. ;-) The quote and explanation can be found below.
How long was Elizabeth in Kent before Darcy proposed to her?
Five weeks (ch. 35)
Which of Charlotte's servants does Lady Catherine volunteer to accompany Elizabeth and Maria to London?
John (ch. 37)
How many times did Elizabeth and Maria dine at Rosings?
Nine times (besides taking tea there twice!) (ch. 38)
How many hours drive is it from Hunsford to London?
Four hours (ch. 38)
What is the name of the inn where Kitty and Lydia meet Lizzy and Jane?
The George (ch. 39)
What does Lydia say is the waiter's defect when she meets Elizabeth and Jane at the inn?
He has a long chin (ch. 39)
Who helped Kitty and Lydia dress Chamberlayne in women's clothes?
Pen Harrington (ch. 39)
Here's the quote: "…so she asked the two Harringtons to come, but Harriet was ill, and so Pen was forced to come by herself; and then, what do you think we did? We dressed up Chamberlayne in woman's clothes on purpose to pass for a lady -- only think what fun! Not a soul knew of it, but Colonel and Mrs. Forster, and Kitty and me, except my aunt, for we were forced to borrow one of her gowns…" I take this to mean that Lydia and Pen did the dressing while all the others only "knew of it." I can see how people would answer Mrs. Forster et al, but Pen Harrington is the unusual - dare I say, trivial? - name I was looking for.

Col. Millars' (ch. 41)
How long have Lydia and Mrs. Forster been acquainted?
Three months (ch. 41)
What is the age of the Gardiners' eldest child?
