Rear Wheel Cylinder Problems

Hey guys, I am having trouble replacing my rear driver's side wheel cylinder. Everything is done except for the brake line. I can't get it off. I need to use vice grips because I cant find a line wrench. I am pretty sure it just keeps twisting the line and i am afraid I am going to break it. I have sprayed it with WD-40 and nothing. any help?

Hit is with a little heat from a propane torch or similar and it should come free. Then replace the line like others have said.

WD-40 isn't the best thing to use. PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench is a lot better.
