    What's the difference between "everyone else" and "everyone"?

    What's the meaning of "everyone else"? Does it have the same meaning with "everyone"? Thanks for your help.

    Sentence: The way I see things, it's everyone else was there.

    I think it means 'except me'.

    He knew everyone who came to my party.

    I was sorry John didn't come. Everyone else came (but/except him).

    (Grammatically, it should be 'but he', but this sounds too correct in colloquial speech, and so we say 'but/except him'.)
