If this 'Other' computer also has Ubuntu 18.04 installed on it you can do:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -d install gcc binutils

This will download all of the .deb files you need.

Then:  copy all of the files in /var/cache/apt/archives/ to a folder on a 
thumb drive and copy all of the files in /var/lib/apt/lists/ to separate 
folder on the thumb drive.

Carry this thumb drive to the off-line machine and copy the files saved on the 
thumb drive to the directories they were copied from.

Then you can do:

sudo apt-get install gcc binutils
