Default Removing valve cover

Really quick question should be an easy one for anyone who has done it.

Do you have to take out the spark plugs when you remove the valve cover? Never removed the VC before and was wondering if I could avoid removing the spark plugs, thanks!

I know, I thought you were going to maybe re-paint it something different.
