How can we see a specific oral argument at the Supreme Court?

A partner at Mr. WWW's law firm has a case going to the Supreme Court this October. There is a specific date; we have our plane tickets and hotel reservation. But wait! We don't have tickets for the case!
The parner was granted 6 tickets, which he of course gave to his family. This being a big deal (for him, the firm, etc) we want to go too! It's our understanding that one is able to wait outside in line (sometimes overnight) to gain entrance to see a specific case in action.
Have you ever witnessed an argument at the Supreme Court? Better yet, was there one in particular you wanted and got to see? How exactly did you go about doing so?
