The Bold faced part refers to the subject in the sentences.Me is used when the it does not form the subject of the sentence whereas I is used when it is a part of the sentence.
For more details refer to Manhattan SC - Pronoun Reference.

IMO

The key to these types of questions is to separate action performing subject from the complex subject list.

1) Action perf sub - the OWNER => Tom, Sue and ME
2) Action perf sub - Anyone => Jane and ME

Here's a copy of that old post, along with an addition based on this question:

Subject pronouns (he, she, who...) are used to replace the subject in the sentence. You can identify the subject because it is the thing which is DOING the action:

He works at the store.
She loves to swim.
Who is going to the party?

The object form (her, his, whom...) replaces a noun when that noun is the object of the verb (i.e. it is having the action done TO it.

I am going to her party. (I am the one going; "her" does not have its own verb.)
I told him the secret. (I am the one doing the telling; I just told the secret to "him" but the "him" does not have its own verb.)
To whom should I send the letter? (I am sending the letter TO "whom" but "whom" doesn't have its own verb.)

So, in the examples in this thread, mojorising800 says:

Quote:
"1. After lot of eating, the owner called us to close the diner, Tom, Sue and Me.

2. Anyone on either team except Jane and I can get a respid.


The Bold faced part refers to the subject in the sentences. Me is used when the it does not form the subject of the sentence whereas I is used when it is a part of the sentence."[/quote]

He is correct! I would argue that neither of these sentences would be correct answers on the GMAT for other reasons, but the subject and object pronouns are used correctly.
