|“||I mean there's just so many phonies out there!||”|
Shannon is rude, insatiable, nonchalant and ignorant. Apparently, she doesn't like dishonest people, which she calls 'phonies'. She loves sports and exercising, and is athletic.
Shannon has fair skin, straight blonde hair, brown eyes, pink eye shadow, and red lipstick. She is seen wearing a form-fitting leopard print dress with matching heels on two separate occasions. She is very skinny, with a rather large behind.
After being set up on a date with Gru by her friend Jillian, the pair go to a restaurant. Whilst on their date, Shannon starts working out, much to Gru's dismay. It is here that Lucy spots the pair while she is collecting her take-out. Shannon eventually realises that Gru is wearing a wig and declares him a 'phony', threatening to expose him in front of everyone else in the restaurant. Lucy hears this, and, to save Gru the embarrassment, shoots Shannon with a mild moose tranquilizer at her behind, which causes her to pass out and land her face in her plate of spaghetti. One of the employees at the restaurant is worried that Shannon is not enjoying the food, but Lucy lies and says that Shannon has just been drinking too much. Lucy then suggests to Gru that they should take Shannon home.
Whilst carrying Shannon to Lucy's car, Gru and Lucy have a close-encounter with a policeman who is suspicious of the pair, but they move Shannon's arms and body to pretend she is awake. The policeman then nods politely to the trio (thinking Shannon is awake) and walks off. When Gru is putting Shannon in the front seat, they realize that the three of them cannot all fit, so they tie Shannon to the top of the car. At Shannon's home, Lucy stops the car so rapidly Shannon detaches from the ceiling and flies into another car. Gru and Lucy lay Shannon on the porch and sit in front of her for a while, talking, and before they say goodbye to each other, Lucy kisses Gru on the cheek, leaving Shannon on her porch with her face in the plant pot. After this, Lucy and Gru began to develop affectionate feelings for each other.
Shannon is seen at the end of the movie, as a guest at Gru and Lucy's wedding.
- Near the end of Despicable Me 2, when the minion sings their own version of "YMCA", notice Shannon in the background. Probably due to an animation error, her mouth snaps and chews in a very unusually manner.
