It's one of those scorelines that you look at once, look at again and then pinch yourself.
Some things were eminently familiar. A soft, free header from an opposition corner; a dubious penalty conceded and then resoundingly converted.
Those kind of events are taken as read; they come with the territory; they're par for the course in this neck of the woods.
What isn't is a visiting goalkeeper walking the ball over his own goal-line; a Norwich City striker converting a one-on-one with an assassin's aplomb; of a team that has scored only eight goals all season bagging five in a night. And against the league leaders.
Little wonder that City chief Glenn Roeder was clearly in an 'over the moon' mood afterwards.
“It's been a long time coming and it was thoroughly deserved,” he told the official Canary site, as the result lifted the Norfolk side two places to 19th – just a place behind a stuttering Ipswich side who were held to a 1-1 draw at the City Ground by bottom of the table Nottingham Forest.
“There was no fluke about it,” added Roeder. “Yet again, even though we scored five goals we could have scored more.”
In fairness to Roeder, team-wise he went for it. Having made so much last season of the fact that by playing Lee Croft on one side and Darren Huckerby the other, City left themselves way too open defensively, tonight the City chief trod a similar path as Wes Hoolahan gave them invention, if not natural width, on the left.
The result was a throw-back kind of game to the Mike Walker era. OK, so it was helped by some comedy moments from the visitors, but there was still an air of 'You score four and we'll score five…' to it. Particularly once Lita decided tonight was the night to play his Premiership part.
That's the big difference. You can be open and attacking – as long as you have a finish up top. Without that and Roeder has every reason to fear the worst – right now and whatever the final scoreline suggests, City still ship both penalties and free headers for fun.
And as every City fan will tell you, however, the sting in tonight's remarkable tale will only come on Saturday when the Canaries play host to Doncaster Rovers.
That's the moment when both tonight's performance and result has to mean so much more; it has to deliver another resounding home success. In particular against a side that doesn't quite set so many pulses racing as Wolves.
Good, bad or indifferent, Norwich and Wolves have 'history'; players may come and go, but the punters don't. There's an always that little bit of an extra edge against a Wolves side; particularly at night, under floodlights, with just that first touch of winter in the air. Everything crackles.
This weekend, however, and there will be none of that. No history, no edge, no crackle. It's Doncaster Rovers at home.
It was a point not lost on the manager. He was making the self-same point afterwards.
“This has to be the start of a good run,” he said. “We really have to roll on against Doncaster; we have to have the same sort of commitment and performance.”
Against the bottom teams as much as the top with the Canaries now having pretty much held their own against Wolves, Birmingham City and Sheffield United.
“Now we're playing Doncaster who are below us in the table, we have to produce the same sort of performance against them – we have to take our chances and win the game.”
As for that Leroy Lita hat-trick – the first at Carrow Road since Jamie Cureton's fun and games against Colchester United last season – his third and final strke might need to go to an arbitration panel as a hapless Wolves defender appeared to gain the last, and significant, touch.
Given that it was Lita who laid Croft's second goal of the season on a plate for him by lifting another one-on-one against the woodwork, it would be churlish indeed to deny the man his match-ball.
Which, by rights, then ought to be presented in a glass case to local businessman Carl Moore whose cash injection helped secure the Reading striker's month-long arrival in Norfolk.
For once he got his money's worth – as did everyone else with a drop of yellow and green blood in their veins.
