Dreams, Hopes, and Plans

Hollywood films in general are pro-pie-in-the-sky dreams, and Sabrina is no exception. Sabrina dreams of love. Linus dreams of financial mergers and money and the benefits of industrial oomph.

Nobody's dream comes out quite as they thought it would, though; every hope and plan ends up with a twist. Sabrina is Cinderella, but the fairy godmother delivers her to Prince Charming's older bro.
