If songs from within the diegesis count, I'll also go with: "No I won't be a nun. No I cannot be a nun. For I am so fond of pleasure..."

I think there has been as it happens but most of them have got too many EDITEDs in them for this place...
Admittedly it's hard to find a clean Lebowski quote, apart from the most glaringly obvious.
You must've missed my earlier quote then
David @Frank Harvey Hi-Fi, Coventry
Official Record Store Day participants!
"Smokey, this is not 'Nam, this is bowling. There are rules."
There you go, and completely clean too
Now I'm scared there will be an avalanche of Lebowski quotes. Let's erect a barrier here!
Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is a venerable goldmine of classic one-liners although a lot of them aren't that original), but my favourtie will always be:
"I Hate traffic wardens"
"In Italy, for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed. But, they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had 500 years of democracy and peace - and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."
"Kill white people and get paid for it? What's not to like?"

This is breaking the rules, but I'd like to quote the concluding sentences from Anthony Lane's damning review of Lock Stock, reprinted in full in Nobdy's Perfect:
Midway through the screening, Tom Cruise leapt from his chair, screaming "This film rocks." I rest my case.
"Is your hair supposed to look like that?"
"Look. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives itself from a mandate from the masses. Not from some farcical aquatic ceremony".
"Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries".
"What floats on water?" - "Bread.....Apples......very small rocks".
"Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again." André Gide
Amen to that, one of the worst films I've ever seen...
The last time we had a thread like this I posted a quote from a 12A film (Deja VU) and got the thread locked so I shall remain silent. (and be thought a fool rather than post and prove it)
You can't exchange a six inch band for all the poisoned streams in Cumberland.
Are you sure there are two 'Ls' in 'dollar', Gideon?
Aye! An' there are two 'Gs' in 'bu**er off'!
From the brilliant Rear Window:
"We've become a race of peeping toms. What people ought to do is get outside their own house and look in for a change."
There is a storm coming Mr Wayne...
