they get baked on and you have to break the bond. I have a tool that is a screw driver handle and has a 90* hook on the end, I think they are sold as seal removers, this goes right up in the hose and you slide it around to loosen the hoses bond to the metal. I also use this tool to put the rubber boots back on a carb when its tight and you cant get your hand in there.

agreed those tools work really well, if you don't have one, most auto parts stores should have something similar and be pretty inexpensive. If not you could try a small flat screwdriver and go around the fittings, that works to but not as nice as the tapered hose remover
