“In Omnia Paratus” Tribute

Episode & Scene from Gilmore Girls with “In Omnia Paratus”

The popular phrase from Gilmore Girls “in omnia paratus” was first heard in Season Five, Episode Seven, entitled “You Jump, I Jump, Jack” which first aired in the United States on November 2, 2004.

Rory is tracking “The Life and Death Brigade,” a secret society at Yale in which her crush, Logan, is a member, for the school newspaper.

The Brigade dresses formally for an outdoor social gathering and is tasked with jumping seven stories while holding umbrellas.

As they stand atop a structure made of scaffolding preparing to jump, the Life and Death Brigade chant their motto, “In omnia paratus!”

Meanwhile, Rory utters “You jump, I jump, Jack,” which is a nod to a scene from the movie Titanic, as she, Logan and other members of Yale’s Life and Death Brigade take the plunge with their umbrellas.

It’s one of the most popular episodes and scenes from Gilmore Girls to this day.

“In Omnia Paratus” Translation in English & Meaning

“In omnia paratus” is a Latin phrase that translates in English to “ready for all things.” Its meaning is one of preparedness, but also one of adventurousness and thrill-seeking.

It works particularly well in Gilmore Girls because Rory is more the “prepared” one and her Yale sweetheart Logan is the more “adventurous” one, and they both bring out the opposing sides of this phrase in each other, both as members of the Life and Death Brigade at Yale and in their lives otherwise.

Fans have decorated their graduation caps with the phrase, and even gotten tattoos with it!
