"The difference between he and I is" . . .these are in the subject case, which is correct. KimberlySep 15 '11 at 11:55

Incorrect. In this sentence "he" is the object not the subject. "The difference between him and his brother is correct."

I am familiar with "the difference between him and his brother"; however, the grammatically correct one might be "he and his bro"...

"He and his brother went to the fair,"  as they are both subjects.

 

"I gave the money to him and his brother" : as they are both indirect objects in receipt of an action.

He and his brother went to buy fruit. The difference between him and his brother was that he liked apples and his brother liked pears.
