* ImpliedDeathThreat: Athena persuades the Furies to back down off of Orestes by pointing out that showing mercy and favoring justice instead of vengeance would lead to them being honored and beloved by the people--oh and also, she has the keys to the storehouse where Zeus keeps his thunderbolts.

* KarmaHoudini: Not Orestes, curiously, since he has a BSOD and is being followed by the Erinyes, but rather Electra, who convinced Orestes of doing the killing. Of course, since Orestes was acquitted, you could argue that the acquittal was extended to anyone involved (including Apollo, who was also guilty to a point).
