radiator help.... ugh

Ok, let me start by saying, i am new to posting here, and im not very good with cars.. i also dont know most technical terms dealing with my current problem... soooo sorry in advance.

I have a 2003 4 cylinder automatic. I noticed a slight transmission leak about a month ago. i found the location of the leak, which was the trans line going into the top driver side of the radiator. I searched on here and a found a few people saying tighten it (duh), so i did. It stopped the leak... yesterday i noticed the leak was back.. i went to tighten it again today, the wrench slipped off and smacked into the hose, breaking off the little nub that the hose was clamped on to..... and that's basically where I'm at... My roommate says i can pull the whole nub thing out and replace that... but it looks to me like its all one piece, and he isnot home yet... Please tell me there is an option besides getting a whole new radiator.
