    She and I went.

    He is late.

    I had written it.

    Give me those apples. (The other choice is a regionalism.)

    The word be is a verb.

    Instead of "She and I went" it's better to say "We went..."

    RonBee is correct! All the sentences sound grammatically correct.

    Last weekend I went out with Bob and I went out with my wife. He and I went to a restaurant together and then she and I went to the movies.
