    It is He and I. Since they are serving as the subject, you use the nominative pronouns, which are:

    ----------------Singular----Plural

    1st Person I--------------We

    2nd Person You---------You (all)

    3rd Person He/she/it--They

    -Him and I is incorrect because him is the objective form of he.

    -He and me is incorrect because me is the objective form of I

    -Him and me is wrong for a combination of the above reasons.

    Just so you know, I will give you the Objective forms.

    Objective:

    Singular

    1st: me

    2nd: you

    3rd: him, her, it

    Plural

    1st:us

    2nd: you (all)

    3rd: them

    It depends where in the sentence you use the phrase.

    Subjective example:

    He and I are the same age.

    Objective example:

    They looked at him and me.

    In English, it is correct to put yourself, (I or me) last.

    Edit: only Jen O & the Alex just above me are correct.

    It depends on the sentence. If you and your friend are doing something, it's "He and I." If something is being done to you, it's "him and me." For example:

    "He and I gave my mother a car."

    "My mother gave him and me a car, too."

    When in doubt, try making your sentence with only one person in it. "He gave my mother a car." is correct. So is "I gave my mother a car." So those are the pronouns you use if you do the sentence together. Him and I can never go together, and neither can he and me.

    "He" and "I" are subject pronouns, so they are the correct form if these are the subjects of the verb. Example: He went out, I came home.

    "Him" and "me" are object pronouns, so they are the correct form if you are referring or talking about them. Example: I (subject) asked him (object) out, but he (subject) did not want to come out with me (object).

    Obviously, you need to mix them in a sentence, if one is the subject of the verb, and the other the object.

    Hi Red,

    Depending on the context, it would be correct to say - He and I.

    I'm intrigued as to why you need to know?
