Firewrench around it a little bit to free it up, then take it out. You can't be afraid of the torch.

Use a good socket, then put it in the vise and break it, then you get a brand new one. Real good Snap-On man, real good.

I'll second the blue wrench and vise grips. That has never failed for me. You gotta clamp those vise grips on there TIGHT, though.

Used the vice grips and used a big pair of channel locks to lock them down super tight. Heated it up with the oxy/ace and it came out nice.
