I have read the book, and I do not remember that specific line. I do
remember its explanation for how many angels can dance on the head of a
pin. The answer is only one, since angels do not dance except for
Aziraphale, who learned the gavotte at one time. Incidentally, the book
also mentions that while devils do dance, they do not do it well; they are
described as dancing "like a white band on 'Soul Train'"
Hilarious book, by the way; well worth reading.
