    Oh for cryin’ out loud

    Ross: Let me ask you something, at your school was there a like uh a place on campus where students went to uh, fool around.
    Rachel: Yeah, there was. It was-there the corner of the library where-where all these dusty books that nobody ever read-Yes, there was.
    Ross: Great! Because people kept showing up, I think it’s like uh-a thing!
    Joey: Now hold on a second, fifth floor against that back wall?
    Ross: Oh for cryin’ out loud! (He storms out.)

    Is "Oh for cryin' out loud!" as same as "Oh for God's sake!"??

    It means, For Christ's sake and it's called a minced oath. Check out this site:
