Find someone with an oil extractor (used to change oil via the dipstick), a vacuum bleeder (mity vac is one brand), or a suction gun (used to suck the oil out of rear ends on RWD vehicles). With any of these and a long length of small tubing, you can suck the fluid out via the dipstick tube. Don't do it with the engine/transmission too hot, as there might be a risk of melting the tubing, depending upon what type of small tubing you are using. I suppose you could rig up something with a turkey baster, duct tape, and small tubing as well, but I'm not sure you'd get enough suction to get much, if any, out using that "handyman's special" approach.
