His lips are moving

We were seeing a patient today on the consult service, a good-natured fellow whose brother was in the room. The patient, unfortunately, has metastatic cancer but was in good spirits despite his prognosis. After making some small talk, his brother said, "well doc, it's always been easy to tell when my brother's lying - just look for when his lips are moving."

We all broke out in was nice to see such a well-knit family in the face of such a difficult circumstance. I hope we are able to provide our patient with the best quality of life in his remaining days...
