    Следует, должен.
    "I should have known that!" - "Я должен был это знать!" "Мне следовало бы это знать!"
    "I should study but I want to hang out with friends!" "Мне следует учиться, но я хочу болтаться с друзьями". " Я должен учиться, но я хочу бездельничать с друзьями". "Мне нужно учиться, но я хочу развлекаться с друзьями".
