I found this sentence while sentence mining oregairu I understand it, but I don't know why there is no いう after the と can someone please explain this

なんちゃってドッキリでした ~ と出ていけば それでOKだ


"いう" is abridged from The sentence.

With "いう"、you can say either "なんちゃってドッキリでした ~といいながら出ていけば それでOKだ" or "なんちゃってドッキリでした ~といって出ていけば それでOKだ".


is same as

殊勝な心がけだといって褒める ("admires his credible achievement")
