But if you are provoked, well, remember that time Marcel’s brother got into a fight and impaled a guy with a brush? (We still don’t quite know how... also probably don’t actually impale anyone with a brush...)
It’s common knowledge (we’re told) that it takes at least 20 shells to make a community. But even if all you have is one remarkable person, like Marcel’s Nana Connie, it’s important to hold them close.
Whether hang gliding (on a Dorito) or setting on a cross-country trip to find your long-lost family, Marcel showed us that, yes, sometimes living life to the fullest can be scary, but it’s worth it.
He may be a shell with shoes and one googly eye, but he likes that about himself (and has a lot of other great qualities as well): we all need that energy.
