Is there any way for Quick Base to extract data from outside sites? Similar to an importXML function found on Google Sheets?

The Same Origin Policy will generally prevent you from doing this unless the target site sets a CORS header. See:

Same Origin Policy 

Your alternative is to use a proxy. One proxy you can use is the YQL (Yahoo Query Language) service along with the YQL jQuery Plugin:
