Quote #10

Chris: I'm yellow. I was made yellow in this house because I suspected my father and I did nothing about it… (3.122)

OK, Chris is a very sympathetic character but look at the way he phrases his acknowledgement of cowardice here. "I was made yellow." Like his father, he shifts responsibility to someone else's shoulders.
