Shower arm snapped off inside fittng

Recently I was attempting to remove the shower head from my sons bathroom. After applying some torque the pipe snapped at the head. So I went to the hardware store to obtain a replacement shower arm. Now I thought I was all set and all I had to do was unscrew the old shower arm and replace it with the new one. Well to make a long story short, when I tried to remove the old one it snapped leaving approximately a 1/4 piece of thread pipe inside the fitting!
My question is how in the heck do I get the 1/4 piece of threaded pipe out of the fitting so I can replace the shower arm? I would truly appreciate any advice you can provide. Thank you,Bryan
