The keys come off, its tricky to get them back on but it can be done.  Call the genius bar before going and ask them if they have any old keyboards in the back and can they just replace the key.  They will need to know your mac model (apple in the upper left --> about this mac) just to be sure.  If its just the key that is damaged and not part below the key (if you press the holy key and still get a C on screen, it works), then its simple and you should leave with your computer in 10 minutes.  If they dont have an old keyboard to rob a C key from, then perhaps a local apple repair shop would.  The apple store might be able to direct you to such a place.  You should be able to get this fixed with out being charged.
