    there probably is an easier way, but it can be done with final cut

    QuickTime Pro is what you need. It has an option to convert 'movie to AIFF', which you could then convert to say, MP3 with iTunes...

    Use Garageband since you already have it.

    Just drag the clip to Garageband. Then after it imports it (may take a minute or two) click on the "Movie Track" and delete it (Cmd + del). It should leave the "Movie Sound" track. Do any editing if you wish then click on "Share," then "Send Song to iTunes."

    It doesn't get any easier, integrated or free than that.
