said といいました

Meet the wonderful ' to.' Mr. can act as a quotation marker ("). Don't confuse this with the that means 'and.' Very often if you are quoting someone or some source. This is best shown with examples:

「俺はスーパマン」言いました。
ore wa su-paman to iimashita.
He said, "I am Superman."

あの絵は十世紀に作った書いてあります。
ano e wa juu seiki ni tsukutta to kaite arimasu.
The book says (it is written) that this painting was made in the 10th century.

It can also be used to mark sound effects of things or animals:

あの犬は「ワン」言いました。
