Shall appears in the following tongue twisters:

  • A fly and flea flew into a flue,
    said the fly to the flea 'what shall we do?'
    'let us fly' said the flea
    said the fly 'shall we flee'
    so they flew through a flaw in the flue.
  • V: Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
    [carves V into poster on wall]
    V: The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
    V: Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
    (from the screenplay of the movie "V for Vendetta", at the beginning, when V meets Evie for the first time)
