[DML] Transmission Pan Stuck? And oil drain plug?

I tried to replace the automatic transmission gasket on my car  
today.  I drained the fluid and got out all of the bolts holding the  
pan in place, but I cannot get the pan itself off.  It's like it's  
glued to the transmission.  I tried prying it with a screwdriver, but  
it just seemed to slightly bend the screwdriver and looked like it  
was going to bend the pan.  It's acting like I never removed the  
bolts that hold it in place.

Any ideas?  I was expecting it to basically drop right off once I had  
the bolts out.  I'm pretty sure the only bolts I need to remove are  
those running around the perimeter of the pan itself, and there  
aren't any others hidden off to the side or something, right?

While I'm here, any ides on how to get a stuck oil drain plug out?   
Mine refuses to budge.  I might just have to bring it to a garage to  
have the oil changed.
