“Don’t get all Jewie on me”

We heard a story in class where someone overheard another person say “Don’t get all Jewie on me.” indicating that the relation to that was Jews and their cheapness. I recently heard that “I’ve been gypped!” derived from the Gypsies. Does anyone else know more of these? I had no clue about the Gypsy comment! I’m interested in hearing more that are out there.
