How to exit the main script in Python

I have a simple script that calls a bunch of functions to do things. 
Sometimes I need to simply exit the main script mid way but I can't find 
the syntax. 'Return' does not work outside of a function. 'Break' must 
be in a loop...etc.

The VB counter part would be 'end'.

Many thanks in advance.
