I'm contracting for a large company and we've been working on a project for 4 months. My work has been well-praised and everything is great. However, a client has requested some major revisions. These revisions would take me about 3-4 weeks at 40/hr week. They need them in 2 weeks.
Because I will be spending every waking moment for the next 2 weeks trying to meet this deadline, should I ask for a bonus? A friend of mine at HP says all the contractors they work with ask for bonuses when they have to meet a tight deadline.
Any thoughts? How would I present this request?

A fair analogy may be "overtime": "Whilst I'm grateful for the work you asking that I give up my life altogether for the next 2 weeks, and frankly that's asking a bit much."
Are you prepared to lose a client? If you are then you're in a much better position to negotiate.
