If i understand your question correctly then by "SKIP the function" maybe you meant to terminate the execution of the program at a certain point.

If so, lets consider it this way.

def function(argument):
    return argument+argument;
    control doesn't reaches here.
    no matter what you write here
    what's written after return is not processed once the return statement is reached in a function.

In above code, the function returns certain value, so to end the execution we make it return something and control doesn't passes through it.

Now, but what if a function returns "nothing", so make it stop executing further we can return "nothing"

def function(argument, or_no_argument):
    return ;
    argument +=1;

Hope i understood your question correctly and this helps! if not please comment so.
