The SHELLS are able to pull themselves into their shells when trouble heads their way. This is not always good because whenever they have a communication problem or a problem of any kind, they will often retreat into their shells rather than face an unpleasant situation.
Shelly is the boy. His natural trait is to disappear into his shell when the going gets tough. The other Somethings have to coax him out to face the problem.
