When Spock mentions "hot pursuit" in regards to chasing the Gorn in Arena. Cracks me up everytime!
"Hot pursuit" (at least in the 21st century) is a legal term to indicate a status in which some police actions may be lawful that wouldn't be otherwise, such as pursuit outside an officer's jurisdiction. So it's logical that Spock would want to document that status in the Captain's Log.
Correction: I just watched it and it was Kirk who made the log entry, so my reasoning there doesn't entirely hold up.
