James: Which is right: “you or I” or “you or me”?
Me: In what context?
James: “Let me know if it is you or I.”
Me: *pauses* “You or I” is right.
James: OK. It sounded right, but I wasn’t sure.
Me: Yeah, it’s “you or I,” because it would be “me” if it were an object, but “is” is a linking verb, so the object would take the same…


Me: I just totally geeked out on you, didn’t I?
James: Yeah.
