Any idea how to produce a quote in the quote environment that's not italicized (using LyX)? I'm trying to create a presentation in beamer and can't seem to figure it out.

Does \textrm{} not work? Maybe \emph{}?! – Sigur Oct 22 '12 at 20:59
If you want that all quote environments are typeset upright, then \setbeamerfont{quote}{shape=\upshape,family=\rmfamily} in the document preamble will do. – egreg Oct 22 '12 at 21:22

You can enclose the text inside a \normalfont group:

using some ERT:

In regular LaTeX, this would be equivalent to

This is some quote on the {\normalfont frame}.
