- FRONT: just between him & me or you & her, or her & me, or us & them. BACK: daily grammaticism: Subjective pronouns do not care for prepositions, going back to some ugly grammar class war during Elizabethan times. So to feign urbanity by using "for you and I" will backfire. Subjective pronouns only hang with linking verbs, as in "It was I" or "These are they." Use a stalwart objective pronoun like "them" or "me" after a sweet preposition or kick-ass action verb.
