Sam escapes, brings down the Ministry, and lives happily ever after with Jill. But then it is revealed that his escape was all a dream. But only in the director's cut--sometimes the movie ends with the happy ending on broadcast television--Terry Gilliam fought this version of the film, but some copies are still out there floating around.
