"Hold the Line!" is the only shout that does not always make a player's character yell the skill's name when it's used. Instead, it has a rare chance to make them yell out one of many race-specific voice-over lines. Which line the skill chooses usually seems to be determined by the type of area, zone, or situation the player is in when the skill was used; although, this isn't always the case. A list of phrases may be found here.
