I would suggest getting a pair of vice grips to get it off, if that doesnt work, take it to a hardware store and they should be able to get it out.

I take it to ACE Hardware for those type of things, I do know them though so that might be the reason for their cooperation.

The PROPER way to remove hoses, is to take an open ended box wrench to them. there are even special tubing wrenches that prevent stripping. usually to remove the really stubborn fittings I use a really high quality adjustable crecent wrench, and tighten it down to the fitting as best as I can. if you haven't fubared the fitting already, if you HAVE... get out the vice grips, and replace the hose after you remove it.

Sometimes if you know it is going to be difficult to remove a screw or bolt (where loc-tite is involved) you can heat it up with a small torch and that will help break the seal. I had to do that to an ACI ASA yesterday where the set screw would not come out. It was anodized black and did not hurt the finish either. I had it pretty hot too, but I would be careful if you have a special finish on what ever it is, and of course, remove any O'rings.
