The FBI suspects that Sherry aided him during the robbery by giving him the key to the vault. Big Momma unexpectedly leaves town for a couple of weeks, the two sneak into her house and Sherry calls the house and Malcolm disguises his voice as Big Momma in order to lure Sherry and possibly obtain a confession.
