    reg got it flip flopped, Whom is used when it isn't the subject of the sentence, and Who is used in cases where it is. If it is directly followed by a verb, I'd say that makes "who" generally a safe bet.

    I remember subject of the sentence from School House Rock XD

    Mr. Morton is the subject of the sentence, and whatever it says, he does. They still show those videos even as far up as Middle School.

    I believe 'whom' is used as the object of a prepositional phrase in place of 'who'. But maybe that's just me.

    PyschoSarah and Plant Planter are both right, though Sarah was a bit more encompassing in her description. For a subject use who, for any object (direct, indirect, prepositional, etc.) use whom. Who usually gets the job done. And really, isn't this just a silly nit-picky rule after all? Why can't we just hurry up with the Orwellian Newspeak already?!? #GrammarLiteratureAllusion

    Since Sarah said it first she wins. Thanks for playing, kiddies!
