The updates need to be properly installed, and even minor differences between system might affect which updates should be applied.different updates, therefore you cannot simply forklift files from a patched system to an unpatched system.
If you nave many roughly identical systems to patch, you could manually update one, as you go noting the KB numbers of the updates needed for that system.. You could then download the manual version of te update from the Microsoft website and manually install the updates. You can find information and links to download updates individually by appending the KB number to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/ (i.e for the update for KB2760583 go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2760583 ).
You'd still need to run windows update on each machine after manually installing updates, as some machines might have individual requirements.

No automated way, but you could for instance, scan for updates on the computer in question using windows update, identify the updates by KB number, download them on another (using the links for the appropriate KB articles as in my post above), better connected system, shift them across on a USB stick, and install them manually.
As for taking an updated system, somehow cloning the installed updates, transferring and installing the updates on another system, there is no way.

You can use the free program called WSUS Offline Update which can save updates for reinstall.
