I would just cut out the piece that leaks, put a fresh piece of line in, use proper fittings to join it and thats it. If you want to do a fast and easy job.

That's a good way to have to do the job 10x over. It's leaking because the lines are rusted, and rotten. It's just going to happen again at the next weakest point. Might as well do the job once, the right way if you're gonna be under there anyway.

Well it's a quick fix if you don't have time or money to replace the whole line. If that's the rear line you will need a t joint etc. Meantime you can do a quick fix and then save up, since it's pricey, to do every brake line; including the flexlines.
