Because in a magical land that exists outside of America... It's quite tricky to keep such knowledge stored in one's mind. Can you name ANY rivers in my country (NZ)? There are Japanese restaurants + people all over the show here not just in Auckland but more than likely in many other countries too. That's perhaps how more people know this answer over a river in the states somewhere...

I mean, is the Japanese word for "eel" something someone really needs to know? Friends is a very popular show, so a lot of people would recognize from that. It's not like "unagi" is some term of colossal historical importance.
