What is this quote from?

"Mister, take your fancy book learnin' somewhere else!" or maybe "You can take your fancy book learnin' someplace else, fella." Something like that.

I figured the Simpsons were referencing something older. Besides, it's more than just the phrase "fancy book learning." It's the "we don't need your..." part, too.

I'm probably way off base but could it possibly be Mayella Ewell's witness stand speech from TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD? The tone of your quote, OP, and the use of the word "fancy" brought it to mind:

"I got somethin' to say. And then I ain't gonna say no more. He took advantage of me. An' if you fine, fancy gentlemen ain't gonna do nothin' about it, then you're just a bunch of lousy, yella, stinkin' cowards, the - the whole bunch of ya, and your fancy airs don't come to nothin'. Your Ma'am'in' and your Miss Mayellarin' - it don't come to nothin', Mr. Finch, not... no..."
