ah, me, ah, joyless me! Paedagogus
Listen, my son; from the doors of the house, I think, came the sound of some serving girl moaning inside. Orestes
 Can it be my joyless Electra? Shall we remain here and listen to her cries? Paedagogus
No, no; before all else, let us strive to obey the commands of Loxias and from them make a fair beginning by pouring libations to your father. For such actions bring  victory within our grasp and give us mastery in all our doings.Exeunt Paedagogus on the spectators left, Orestes and Pylades on the right.
