I must KILL these creatures to get cross the water to Utnapishtim!
You fool! Those creatures were the only ones who could protect us from the waters of death!
Gilgamesh reaches the waters of death after arriving from the mountain pass. He assumes he must kill the large creatures in order to sail to Utnapishtim.
Urshanabi, the ferrier, is angry with Gilgamesh because the creatures were the only ones who would protect them from the waters of death without disintegrating.
I have finally arrived for eternal life!
Surely you aren't Gilgamesh! You're a ragged mess!
To make up for his actions, Gilgamesh cuts thousands of poles to push the boat himself. He lost his temper and smashed the sails and masses, so he had to use his clothes for sails.
Urshanabi leads Gilgamesh to Utnapishtim.
When Gilgamesh arrives, Utnapishtim is doubtful of Gilgamesh's identity because he is so skinny, ragged, and ears the skins of beasts.
After conferring with Gilgamesh and finding his motive for learning the secret to immortality, Utnapishtim describes how he himself received immortality from the pity of the gods.
