^what he said. The oil pan bolt is stripped out. Put a pan under it and let it drain. Have a friend take you to your local junk yard and snag a used one. Or buy new from Honda, not that expensive. Not even a big deal to swap out. You just have to get up under the car and undo all of the bolts holding it on, save the gasket or replace it to be thorough.
