ctrl+c will do it also

ctrl+z will suspend the process
type jobs and you will see it there
the number in brackets is the job number
to return to it do fg 1 or whatever the job number is

Type "h" so see the commands more understands, you will notice that q or Q interrupt the more process. ctrl-c is a command the shell interprets to send a break signal to the current running command. So q or Q are handled by more and ctrl-c (or z) by the shell.
