This quote comes from The Simpsons episode 4F10 "Mountain of Madness".

Homer is telling the family that Mr Burns has decided that the nuclear power plant is going to have a corporate retreat to improve teamwork around the plant (after an abysmal fire drill where it took over 15 minutes to evacuate instead of the required 45 seconds).

The full scene is:

Homer: So, Mr. Burns is gonna make us all go on a stupid corporate retreat up in the mountains to learn about teamwork. Which means we'll have to cancel our plans to hang around here.
Bart: Teamwork is overrated.
Homer: Huh?
Bart: Think about it. I mean, what team was Babe Ruth on? Who knows.
Lisa and Marge: Yankees.
Bart: Sharing is a bunch of bull, too. And helping others. And what's all this crap I've been hearing about tolerance?
Homer: Hmm. Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
