The quickest thing is a Fleet's enema or a warm water enema which can be found at any drug store.  That will work in about 5 minutes.  A Fleet's enema will probably work better but it is more painful.  A warm water enema is just putting some warm water in an enema bottle which isn't as painful but might not work as well.
