Question about 1994 Saturn Sl
If the shifter cable has broken (specifically the plastic loop) you can replace it with a new one from Ebay. Just look up "Saturn Bushing Man" and select the Shifter Cable Eyelet loop. It is a part that is $25 plus shipping. It is an easy fix. The other possibility is that the shifter bushing has broken. "Saturn Bushing Man" on ebay also sells a Delron Plastic Replacement or a Stainless Steel Shifter bushing replacement. Either of these will work as well and are only a $29 part. I have owned Saturns since 1997 and I had both of these parts go out on my 94 Saturn SL2.

Bad news, the grommet the hooks to the shifter from the cable is bad, that's why your shifter moves around freely, this is a dealer item, and the dealer don't sell this grommet by it's self. they want to sell it with the cable only (or they won't make any money), you might want to hit some salvage yard's and see if you can locate one, if not you'll have to buy the cable from the dealer,sorry:( Hope this was helpful.

I have never seen a cable linked manual transmission shifter. Idk but my suggestion is to check to see exactly what type of linkage it does have, and if i'm wrong so be it. However I think it is going to be a solid rod perhaps more than one. I'm assuming it worked itself loose from either transmission side or the shifter side. To determine this shouldn't be too hard. Just remove the shifter boot from the console, and look to see if linkage is attached to the shifter properly. If so u should be able to follow it to opposite end to check to see if it is attached properly to the transmission. If on either side it is disconnected than you will need to determine the type of keeper or retainer the factory used to keep linkage fastened securely. Examples. Carter pins, nuts, bolts, e-clips, snap ring ext. these parts can easily be found at local hardware stores. Now when you get this problem fixed will you let me know what it was, that way I will know:)
