How to Eject a Stuck Disc from MacBook Pro

I burned six discs for a client this morning and the sixth one got stuck.

There was a burn failure error message but no Disc icon or eject button.

1. Shut down.
2. Click and hold touchpad.
3. Turn on.

The disc popped out from the drive and I continued working happily ever after.
