The line you broke is the breather line/hose to the fuel pressure regulator. They do get brittle after time. You can go a while with it disconnected but, its best to not let impurities damage the regulator. You can pick up a foot or two of vacuum line from your Merc dealer or just run to your local hardware store to get some rubber tubing. Either way your not looking at a performance/economy problem with the line disconnected.
Good Luck!
