Immortal Gatekeeper (Character)
from "Gulliver's Travels" (1996)
[Gulliver has come before the immortal Struldbruggs]
Immortal Gatekeeper: Welcome to the immortal world.
[leads Gulliver to a font in the middle of their chamber]
Immortal Gatekeeper: This is the source of the life everlasting. Drink from this water and you will never fear death. Never.
[offers Gulliver a dish of the water]
Lemuel Gulliver: But I have to get home. There's a ship in the harbor. I only have minutes before it sails.
Immortal Gatekeeper: Minutes? What are minutes? You have no need for such petty considerations here.
Lemuel Gulliver: [narrating] I was offered immortality... man's dream. With the fear of death removed, I could learn the truths of existence. I could get riches in wisdom. I could read every book ever written. Study the movements of the planets and the stars. I could watch the rise and falls of republics and kings and from the great depths of my knowledge, offer advice to all. I could do anything.
Immortal Gatekeeper: Drink. Taste immortality.
Lemuel Gulliver: Why is your hand shaking so badly?
