get LAN ip

ifconfig | grep inet
Returns the IP, broadcast, and subnet mask of your interfaces absent any other extraneous info. I know it's a bit lame, but I've created an alias for this when I *quickly* want to know what a system's IP is. Small amounts of time add up :)
Sample Output
inet addr:10.11.12.123 Bcast 10.11.12.255 Mask: 255.255.255.0
