Whiskey met Charlie Hesketh's ex girl friend at music festival:

Whiskey: Miss, I beg your pardon. Now, I don't wanna pester you... but I just have to know, what time are you playing?

Girl: I'm not in a band. Oh, God. Who did you think I was Please don't say someone ghastly.

Whiskey: God damn it, now I feel like a fool. I just assumed that a woman with your charisma...well, she just had to be
somebody.

Is "to" avoided after "say"?
