Just use a pair of pliers and turn in a counter clockwise direction being careful not to damage anything on the gas valve.

Cut the thermocouple off with a pair of wire cutters and use the right size socket and a back up wrench.

Try using the correct size wrench, unless you have already rounded off the corners on it.... or does that make too much sense.
If your furnace is old enough to use a thermocouple, then it probably needs replacing with a more energy efficient furnace anyway.

Cut the thermocouple off flush with the nut and then use the right size 6 point box wrench or socket.

Probably easy enough to flex it back and forth, till it snaps off.

Maybe its one of those wall furnaces where the thermal tube is integral with the control valve.

I've got to stop reading this thread. It's stuck, nothing turning up.
