Remove the oil filter and dump out the oil. You may have to do it a couple of times. (Each time it will be worth 4-6 ounces of oil.)

Another alternative: Jack up the car, put plenty of newspaper or cardboard on the floor, and put your drain pan beneath the drain plug. A drain pan with a large opening is best. (This type, for instance.) Remove the plug for a few moments, and then quickly put it back in. Good for a quart or so - depending upon how quickly you reinstall the plug. No need to get the oil hot before you do this, as the oil is fresh. It will be a bit messy, but it can be done. Make sure you don't cross-thread the plug when reinstalling.
