Door Won't Open From Inside & E Brake

I have a '91 Wrangler with full doors that will not open from the inside, but work just like normal from the outside. Is this something that I can take care of in a couple hours, and is there anything I need to pick up or will it be just tightening a few bolts?

Also, somehow my emergency brake popped. There is no pressure at all when I push it down and it goes right to the flood. When I pull the release handle the pedal stays down at the floor and does not rebound. I have a five speed, so this is kind of a big deal. Any pointers how to fix this and where to look?

a clip probably broke or fell off inside the door where the little rods connect to the inside handle. should be easy. sounds like your e brake cable broke.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
