Exactly. You missed the release lever with the pushrod on the slave cylinder. It happens. You may be able to push it back together and put the rubber dust seal back on. You'll just have to bleed the clutch. You may be able to get away with topping off the brake fluid reservoir (must be pretty full, at or above the MAX mark) and pumping up the pedal with your hand. You will have to pull the pedal up, wait a second, push down, wait a second, pull up, repeat about 100 times. You will feel the pedal getting firmer if this method is successful.
