Quote #7

ELECTRA
Then I will speak. You say you slew him. Where
Could there be found confession more depraved,
Even though the cause were righteous? (558-560)

Great argument – except this puts Electra in a sticky spot herself at the end of the play, especially since the Greeks thought matricide was worse than killing your spouse.
