HERE IT IS: (credit to Tex’s French Grammar)

Tammy: Tex m’aime.   Tammy: Tex loves me.
Bette: Tex ne t’aime pas.   Bette: Tex does not love you.
Tammy: Tex va m’épouser.   Tammy: Tex is going to marry me.
Bette: Sois raisonnable, Tammy. Tex ne veut past’épouser.   Bette: Be reasonable, Tammy. Tex doesn’t want to marry you.
Tammy: Mais si. Il l’a promis quand je l’ai rencontré à Lyon.   Tammy: Yes he does. He promised when I met him in Lyon.
Bette: Mais il ne m’avait pas encore rencontrée!   Bette: But he hadn’t yet met me!

In the negative imperative, the pronoun follows the normal placement before the verb. However, in the affirmative imperative, the object pronoun goes after the verb and is attached to it by a hyphen. In addition, me and tebecome moi and toi. 

Bette: Tex, embrasse-moi!   Bette: Tex, kiss me!
Joe-Bob: Attends, ne l’embrasse pas devant moi. Je m’en vais.   Joe-Bob: Wait, don’t kiss her in front of me. I’m leaving.
Bette: Eh bien, il est parti. SMACK!   Bette: Eh bien, he’s left. SMACK!

agreement of the past participle 
The past participle agrees in gender and in number with a preceding direct object. In other words, if the direct object pronoun is feminine, add an e to the end of the past participle; if the pronoun is masculine plural, add an s(unless the past participle already ends in s); if it is feminine plural, add es. 

Un peu plus tard …   A little later …
Bette: Tammy? Tu sais, Tex m’a embrassée.   Bette: Tammy? Tex kissed me.
Tammy: Ce n’est pas vrai!   Tammy: That’s not true.
Bette: Demande-lui. Il arrive.   Bette: Ask him. Here he comes.
Tammy: Tex, tu l’as embrassée, Bette?   Tammy: Tex, did you kiss her, Bette?
Tex: Qui? Bette? Mais non. Je ne l’ai pas embrassée. C’est elle qui m’a embrassé! PAF! Aie!
