Default Dropped Pcv Grommet - Help!

I feel like an idiot, but I was trying to install a new PCV valve and grommet when I managed to push the new grommet into the hole. I believe the intake gasket has a pan that its probably laying in, but can anyone familiar with whats under the intake tell me if this is a really bad thing? If I have to I'll bit the bullet and tear it all apart, but I just dropped off my Pontiac for trans work so now I'm stuck with the GN as transportation.

We're trying to fish it out but so far no luck. It was visable at one point and then flipped somewhere where we can't see it.

HELP!

Update: Somehow my brother, after 2 hours of fishing around in the hole with a coat hanger, managed to find and retrieve the grommet. WHEW!!

Back to the tune up...
