    In this case, it's me and Larry (or Larry and me) because you are the objects of the preposition "between". See this question on ELL for some more details. – Hellion Dec 23 '14 at 18:28
  • The pro-tip for figuring out which is to remove the other person. Which sounds right: "worked up between me" or "worked up between I"? – Digital Chris Dec 23 '14 at 18:37

Since "between" governs the phrase, the pronoun must be in the objective case; "between Larry and me" is correct.


Who worked up the plan? Larry and I did.

Who was the plan worked up between? It was worked up between Larry and me.

Larry and me is the correct choice.

The sentence feels awkward to me, I would probably say "Worked up by me and Larry"
