It refers to playing your pocket pairs, hoping that you make three-of-a-kind on the flop.
example: 22 on a flop of K27

So it doesn't refer to any specific betting pre-flop or flop?

Typically, it implies lots of limping preflop, rather than raising with the pocket pairs.

to combine the above answers, it means you are getting to the flop cheap with a smaller pocket pair, even if a small raise comes, in hopes of hitting a set (3 of a kind), and if you don't you will fold to any flop aggression. typical play for small pairs
