Stopping Execution

Hey everyone.  I remember from my C programming that I can either use 
the exit() or return() functions to end execution of the main code 
block.  My question is, is there a way for me to do this in Python?  I 
know there has to be, but I can't for the life of me figure out what it 
is.  The reason I ask is that I need to conditionally end a script I'm 
writing at various places.  Thanks in advance.
