Exclamation Ignition Wire Plug Repair?

hey you guys....

so i had a grueling ordeal over the weekend....

my belt broke on my 300CE on friday night....and i was basically stuck at the am/pm in santa monica...until i called alon, the wonder benzoid guru....ASHMAN YOU'RE THE BEST!!!....

he basically totally replaced my belt with my minimal help...

it was so so amazing that all of a sudden what would have been a 450-600.00 job turned into a 40.00 fix...(new belt and latex gloves-no dirty hands)...even though alon got covered in dirt, from being an amazing friend and mechanic!!!!!

but a new problem lay hidden under the hood...my car was still misfiring....we realized later that the distributor had been cracked from the belt being broken.....

ugh so at that point alon and i and his brother and friend went out for a late night dinner (no parts shop open 24 hours..boo hoo)....

i woke up the next morning...and bought an italian made Standard distributor for 81.00 (i don't know if it's any good but i needed a cheap quick fix)....

and i proceeded to replace the distributor....

leave it up to me to totally rip the wire out of the back of the distributor plug!!!!!!!!!

can this be fixed?

am i stuck with buying a new plug wire set?
wwwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
help help help
