(Electra): "That Orestes may come here through some fortune is my prayer to you; and you must hear me, father! Grant me also to be much more chaste than my mother, and my hands to have greater piety." (129-131, 138-141)
(Orestes): "Many desires are falling together into one; there are the gods' commands, and my great grief for my father; besides, it oppresses me to be deprived of my property, so that our citizens, who have the finest glory among men, and honour for their heart in sacking Troy, should not be subjects like this of a pair of women. Why, the man is effeminate at heart; and if he is not, he shall soon find out!" (299-305)
(Chorus): "Now take your friends through the rest, ordering action for some, and for others to do nothing."
(Orestes): "It's simply said: Electra here is to go inside [a line missing]." (552-554)
