I think that a cell can be considered the human body in miniature, because cell is composed by organelles that make different functions, but taken together they allow cell to do his activities and expecially survive; the body run in the same way, because it's composed by different cells, that make different function but together let human body to survive.

i would say that a cell is like a club. the membrane is the security guy that decides if you get in or not. and the ER makes the drinks and stuff like that. you can figure it out.
