    Me gusta que does but entender que is a weird one that sometimes does and sometimes doesn't depending on context....

    'Me gusta' can be followed with an infinitive, if you are the agent of the action: eg. Me gusta ir de compras.

    What phrase did you have in mind?

    If in doubt, there's always linguistic devices to negotiate your way through, without using the subjunctive, if you are deft at paraphrasing. But I suppose you need to demonstrate working knowledge of the subjunctive to pick up marks.
