sucking it out of the dipstick tube would be best.
it is slow but safe and easy task.
i would avoid taking it out from the pan by way of
the small screw unless you will be quick enough to
remove and insert a new copper gasket. if not, the
screw will end up eating up the old gasket, hence,
messing up its thread.
this happened to me and i ended up at my local
machine shop, and several hours of labor.
