That's a standard discrepancy between British and American English: in the USA, "momentarily" means "in a moment" rather than "for a moment".

Oh, really? Are there differences between UK and US English, then? Please do explain them all to me, I'm still a bit new to this "language" thing.

Yes, there are a fair number of differences. For instance, did you know that in the US, sarcasm means the exact opposite of what it does in the UK?
