Never say never. As you can boot into recovery you might be able to do it by installing CWM custom recovery via Odin.
You can then mount the internal sd and use ADB on you PC to copy the files or (maybe) do a Nandroid backup to the external SD and extract the files from that.
thread will help with installing CWM while this
thread may give you some pointers on ADB as the guy is trying trying to do a similar thing with a Nexus.
I'm no expert so do some more research. It might be worth posted in the question (or getting a mod to move it) to All Things Root as while you're not rooted the guys in there know all about CWM and ADB.
ps. if this works you'd then need to reinstall stock firmware via Odin if you wanted to return to stock (or join us on the dark side and install a custom rom
