It's referring to giving a third degree burn (the worst burn known to man). When somebody is interrogated, or "debriefed" as it is known in some circles, they are put in the "hot seat". It all relates back to temperature and the devastating effects that temperature can inflict on the human body and psyche. The third degree in this case is a mind burn, not a body burn.

In ages past and long forgotten, schools of higher learning did not have specific titles for degrees conferred. Instead of Bachelor or Associate degrees, they were simply called the first and second degrees. Few possessed the mental acumen to seek beyond a second degree. At graduation, and before the third degree was bestowed, the student had to sit before a tribunal of learned elders and answer rapid fire questions from dusk until dawn. Only the best survived (and they would one day serve on the same tribunal). This is where the saying comes from.

you have to be a sailor to get this-- it referes to the sails on a boat not being secured tighty enough, therefore the boat would sway in the wind like a drunken sailor or something--
